TBT Hits The Road Tuesday Morning

Tagged:  

Take Back Toledo hits the road in a big way Tuesday morning when 18 wheelers bearing the TBT logo hit the streets and begin collecting signatures. Three semis will be at specific locations around the city beginning at 6:30 and will be manned with volunteers to take your signatures. I'll have all three locations announced as I go on air at 6a. If you don't believe in the TBT movement just ignore the trucks and avoid the potholes on your way to work.

No votes yet

you can collect another thousand signatures to get you an even 4400. Congrats, way to be the voice of Toledo!

I hope the rest of you are taking notes. glasscat just gave you an example of the perfect post! It relates to the topic, is witty, and spelled correctly. Nice job cat. 4400 by the way since cat didn't mention it is the name of a former USA Network show about alien abduction. Great pop culture reference.

From Fred: If you don't believe in the TBT movement just ignore the trucks and avoid the potholes on your way to work.

Real wrong, Freddy. Here's the real deal:

If you don't like the Take Back Toledo movement or you have a suggestion on how the movement should be run, just write your comments on the back of a brand new hundred dollar bill and mail it to:

Take Back Toledo!

ah... Fred? There doesn't seem to be a US mail address on the site.

I'm sorry Jeremy I'm not in charge of the site so I can't help you there. Defacing a $100 bill is also I believe a federal offense under TITLE 18 - CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE
PART I - CRIMES
CHAPTER 17 - COINS AND CURRENCY
333. Mutilation of national bank obligations. If you want to contribute you can use the PayPal account on the www.takebacktoledo.com website, or come to one of the dinners at Dave Home Cooked Foods on Reynolds. Thanks for pointing that out Jeremy.

Actually its a little more involved then that http://www.bep.treas.gov/document.cfm/18/104

"Whoever mutilates, cuts, disfigures, perforates, unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, Federal Reserve Bank, or Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such item(s) unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both. "

 

So as long as the bill is still usable its not as huge a deal as you make it out ot be. People write on bills all the time. I've got two marked bills in my wallet right now. Theres even a whole web page dedicated to it.

As for TBT. While I agree with the idea I think its too little too late. The election is in November. I think their time & money would be better spent on finding and supporting a good candidate to win in November rather then spend tax payer money on a special election to remove him from office before November.

OhioKat,

TBT costs not one dime of taxpayer money. There is no special election. We will be on the September ballot which is a regularly scheduled primary election.

It just magically appears on the ballot? No one takes any time or effort to put this on the ballot and oversee the process? It's magic!

Pink Slip

The time and effort being expended is coming from those involved in the Take Back Toledo cause. Now if you 'd like to factor in the extra time it takes for a typesetter or someone using a computer to set the ballot I suppose you could. The ballot however will be printed anyway and the "extra" ink and time spent putting in on the ballot is every citizens' right and responsibility. As far as I'm aware no one has asked anyone named PinkSlip to give any time or effort to this cause.

Thursday, March 12th - The management of Westfield Shoppingtown (Franklin Park Mall) have generously allowed us a day soliciting signatures in the center court of the mall (old food court). Time is 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM. Location is the center court (old food court). We'll have a table with signs.

Is the Westfield mall in Toledo or Sylvania? It's a little late now, but I'd have chosen a site outside the jurisdiction of the Toledo Police Dept. Consider the lawn signs, official bus tour and bike path incident.

Your know, if the mall is actually inside Toledo, having one or more lawyers on site along with security cameras might be a big help to the cause. I'd have a bail bondsman I could call as well.

Just sayin'....

Man, you lost me there Jeremy. What would be the need for TPD at an event for which we have permission? A number of officers and sheriff deputies have signed the petition so I don't think that's what your refernence is meant to convey. I'm not sure I get what you're just sayin'.....
