Should city council go to the Governer and have him remove Carty from office?

The citizens of Toledo, especially those who signed the petitions to have Czarty removed, should march down to One Government Center and remove Czarty forcefully.

Pick up his desk, his chair and Carty, take them down to the street and leave them on the sidewalk.

Make sure there are lots of cameras around so that the rest of the United States sees that Americans are tired of inept Government and we are now taking matters into our own hands.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Thinking led to the firing on of Fort Sumter by the Confederates and you see where that went-Civil War. The USA would be no better than Honduras or any other third world country should this type of behavior prevail. The ballot box is designed to settle political differences in this country. Take Back Toledo has already garnered, or so they say, enough signatures to place the question of removing Carty from office on the November ballot. Myself I don't think a bunch of blowhard suburbanites have the right to come into Toledo and stir up the city by trying to remove our Mayor. Let the people of Perrysburg and the other Toledo suburbs deal with their own problems and quit trying to muddy the political waters here in Toledo. Toledo surpassed the suburbs in greatness in the 19th century and they are still sore over it. Get over it suburbia-Toledo won the race to greatness!

I actually chuckled at a couple of your statements.

"Toledo surpassed the suburbs in greatness in the 19th century and they are still sore over it. Get over it suburbia-Toledo won the race to greatness!"

And in the 20th and beginning of this 21st century, Toledo has become a 3rd world nightmare. In the 20th and 21st century, Toledo has lost 10's of thousands of people to the suburbs. Those of us, like me, who escaped the ignorance of the A, B, and now C Team Democrap rule that has flushed Toledo into obscurity and moved out for greener pastures.

Maybe you are right to an extent. Toledo DID surpass the suburbs in greatness in the 19th century, but since then it has become the punch line of many national jokes, the subject of many song parodies, a pathetic joke of a city.

You are losing people, losing industry, losing money, losing credibility and losing greatness. And you have been for at least 40 years.

 

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

The USA would be no better than Honduras or any other third world country should this type of behavior prevail.

No better than Honduras you say?

"Last Saturday, Honduran soldiers marched into the presidential palace, bundled up President Manuel Zelaya and put him on a plane for Costa Rica.

The ouster had been ordered by the Supreme Court and approved by the Congress, as Zelaya was attempting an illegal referendum to change the Honduran constitution so he could run for another term. "

Sounds like Honduras is a shining example of how to stay within the system and legally get rid of a tyrant.

If you'd watch the news, you'd see that no one's been shot, and nobody's out in the streets protesting like they are in the middle east where they magically came up with 3 million more votes for the Ayatollah than there are voters!

Maybe we SHOULD take an example from our friends in Honduras. We've got the signatures, lets get it out there for a vote and get him out of there.

Just a few months early? So what - what a statement would that make to the rest of them who are of the same mind as carty that we're done with the BS and we're taking back what's ours to begin with.

I believe since the idiots of Toledo voted him in they should have to deal with him.

It is more important that the proper authorities remove the president usurper from office unless or until he proves he is a natural born citizen.

do it?

To add what Sarge said, WSPD has done more damage to the image of Toledo than any one man could do. The marine incident was hyped by WSPD bringing the focus of Toledo on a national scale all to boost station ratings. Recently the carpet bagging host was on Glen Beck again ruining Toledo's image with over-the-top sarcastic remarks of slanderous nature. While Toledo is in a recession (as all of the country is) we have these "hosts" telling America that Toledo is a horrible place don't come here. Over and over this one radio station continues to chase away anyone even remotely thinking of locating in this region. Any little incident is magnified and megaphoned to his media contacts of national scale. So I ask the question, who is the bigger ass the mayor or WSPD?

marine incident was hyped um... it was news they reported on it. It's their job.

arpet bagging host was on Glen Beck again ruining Toledo's image with over-the-top sarcastic remarks of slanderous nature um... it's commentary. It has a little impact over people's lives. The mayor can DIRECTLY impact people's lives. I suggest you google Toledo and Trash Tax.

we have these "hosts" telling America that Toledo is a horrible place don't come here it's a valid opinion.

So I ask the question, who is the bigger ass the mayor or WSPD? The mayor. I refer you to two paragraphs above.

MikeyA

ain't Glen Beck the pitchman for some gold place that he knew about them before they sponsored his show?

I didn't know he did a radio show.

just pimped gold...

WSPD finds every opportunity to Bash Toledo. The mission statement is: Bash Toledo and the Mayor locally and nationally 24/7. Every day its the same old drivel repeating the same old comments from the day before...damn isn't that the definition of insanity? I use to be a loyal listener of Denny and Scott but since the carpet bagger came to town I only listen on occasion to see if they've changed format.

Just to save you some time wolfmeister. We will not be changing format anytime in the near future so don't bother to listen even on occasion if it bothers you so much. You give us much more credit than we deserve too, and I thank you for that. We may be the most listened to talk station in town but there are at least a dozen other stations for people to listen to to hear music and upbeat stories. Perhaps you'd be happier with one of them. I doubt anything we do on air causes someone in California or elsewhere to choose not to live here, however national press coverage of our mayor's actions like the gravel driveway tickets make it across the country without any help from WSPD..
Realizing you may not be as smart as you think you are, here's a tip.....turn off the station. Because it seems you are guilty of bashing WSPD at every opportunity just as you say we bash the city. Happy 4th. Remember the whole freedom of speech thing this weekend.

You are attributing WAY too much power to Speedy. The toledo population has been leaving town in droves for decades. We're at the population we were at in the '50's.

Are all these people leaving because of the radio station, or is it because of crime (both crime that the cops will respond to, or crime on the list that now don't make the cut any more), The cr*ppy schools that spend more per student with crappier results than other comparable inner city schools in the state, and the tax, tax, tax, with no bang for the buck? Maybe it's the stranglehold by the unions who have no interest in diversification the area - it's manufacturing or nothing, AND the only people who can get a job are the family and friends of people already in...

Yeah, if it weren't for one little radio station, we'd be a Midwestern Xanadu.

Fred for your info I don't listen to the FM dial nor do I watch much local TV. I do subscribe to three daily newspapers one of which is IBD. I am a true independent who votes for the person not some bonehead party ticket. I try to weigh both sides of an argument with information not some titillating sensationalized hype to further a political agenda (an ratings). That's where my criticism of your employer comes in. Your boss is nothing more that a race baiting arrogant hate monger. In no way does he portray the news in a balanced way. Of course this is my opinion and hope this sparks a serious dialog on what our local air waves have turned into. Do you realize much of your listening audience may not agree with you but are ham strung by the lack of choice because of the monopoly of Clear Channel & Cumulus Media.

I'm always curious when I see a line like "much of your listening audience" used by someone not actually involved in the radio business. Is it a survey of each person you meet, just your friends, people who believe as you do? Do you stop random people on the street and ask if they listen to WSPD and then ask if they are forced to listen?
See, wolfmeister there is always a choice, always. To say that you or others are hamstrung is to absolve you from making a decision. The choice is simple, listen or don't.
As for what local media has turned into, I can answer that. The paper is a shadow of what it once was although the editorial board seems not to have realized it yet despite low sales, and subscriptions. Local tv is more interested in pushing their twitter and website accounts because they at least realize people are looking for other sources of news. What they don't get yet is that putting the flaccid news on air and on the web doesn't really up their reputation. WSPD is the only, yes only, source for the details of what is happening on the 22nd floor. Now you may not like it, it may be dirty, and ugly, and messy but it is what it is.
I don't expect the tv stations will be commenting of the mayor saying that it's okay his people to use bolt cutters to go on private property to take photos to then use against the property owners. They will be covering the latest dog that needs a home, or giving you a eco or health minute.
When you've compiled the research you've done on why the WSPD audience listens please send me a copy I'll be happy to give you credit.

Fred this is why I don't watch local TV news too dumbed down. Too much of the silly reports of entertainers and health updates. I do like the hard news (WWJ 950 Detroit) without the biased political slanted commentary. Your station now rely on extreme right wing news sources that make listening so hard. When listening to you Fred I hear the influence of your carpet bagging boss. Before this individual took charge you had a more reasonable tone in your delivery. The station dwells on hate not news always coming back to extreme themes that most rational people have a hard time swallowing. It's only a matter of time before one of your debased listeners does something extreme because of your constant hateful message. What will you do if the mayor is not around anymore?

So

"I don't listen to the FM dial nor do I watch much local TV. I do subscribe to three daily newspapers one of which is IBD."

So you only get your information from print media. Well I would say that's equally flawed logic.

I listen to radio programs similar to WSPD, I've stopped listening to them by in large since Brian Wilson took over. Yet I also listen to Air America. I do try to get my information from different outlets and different mediums as each is different and each has it's own biases. Likewise I watch cable news and read print media (primarily while online).

Print media will always be biased. Radio media will always be biased. Television media will always be bias. They are all fighting for the same thing.... more ad revenue.
