Incredibly Blatant Promo For Right Wing Supported Radio Show Done By Undereducated Talk Show Host

Thursday morning I will be talking with Michael LaFaive of the Mackinaw Center about Michigan's move towards Right To Work. According to the website "The Mackinac Center for Public Policy is a nonpartisan research and educational institute dedicated to improving the quality of life for all Michigan residents by promoting sound solutions to state and local policy questions." But I think we know it's big business and Wall Street banksters who fund it, right? so the research must be tainted.
i'll also be breaking a story about Lucas County Auditor Anita Lopez and her spending decision which will cost taxpayers over $300k instead of $87k.
Oh yeah and just to pretend that I really care about the little guy and the poor I'll have my buddy Stan on to talk about the Old Newsboys paper sale which is going on now and will hit the streets Friday.
Whew?!!! All this promoting of a show that continues to lose listeners because of the failure of Romney and Bain Capital is exhausting. I wish I could get a government handout to hire a promo person. I'd make sure they drove an energy efficient solar powered car if that would help secure the funds.

Unfortunately, now that Marcy Kaptur is no longer sitting next to the gavel on the Appropriations Committee, I'm afraid government funds are out-of-the-question. However, if you could dress-up like a cute Chihuahua and head to the Lucas County dog pound--I smell some Block money!

"Nonpartisan research" too funny!

This is a local charity which gives 100% of everything donated to buy shoes and clothes for Toledo's children. No one who works for the Old Newsboys takes one cent. All labor is donated. This is truly a situation of neighbor helping neighbor.

Everyone buy a paper on Friday! Give generously to this wonderful organization!

Couldn't agree more Dale. It seems that charities like this are few and far between these days.

And if you can't make it out to buy a paper tomorrow, consider donating online.

Old Newsboys

Everyone, please be careful tomorrow on your way to work or wherever. Watch out for those who are volunteering to be at street corners. For most of us, it is a small inconvenience once a year for a local charity that gives every penny to its cause.
Be careful, and give with a full heart.

Wait just a minute. You mean to tell me that people are still in need? We've already had 4 years of Obama--and people are still in need? My spouse and I paid over $40,000 in federal income taxes last year. If there still are people in need, it's a government mis-management problem. Good luck to the suckers who are counting on the government to manage their health care!

What research is required about RTW? It's about the natural rights of a business and the natural rights of employee candidates. Nobody should be forced to do anything outside of their sphere of ownership. The employer owns the business, not the union. Therefore the union can't actually use the legal system to take control of the business. Equally so, unions don't own employees; employees own themselves. Sure as hell they don't own people outright, therefore they can't demand that people join them.

RTW is what's naturally right. If you like an employer, then work for him. If you like a union, then join one. None of that changes when RTW is re-invoked for a state, overturning all those absurd and tyrannical union laws which have no basis in American culture and our love for liberty.

I have to keep telling workers around Toledo that RTW is what's naturally right, and just because they don't run a business or employ people, doesn't mean the rights of employers should be crossed. If they owned a business, they'd want the same ability to control it. Those are property rights. You have the right to evict a plumber or visitor from your property now, right? The same applies to an employer. (That's "at will" employment. More natural rights of man.) You'd object to a group of visitors taking control of your house, right? That's RTW.

I'll never be an employer, and I'm fine with that. But it's not like I can just sit here and deny the property rights of employers. I stand up for rights for others, even though I may never exert those rights for myself. That's what a moral American does.


GZ telling workers around Toledo that RTW is what's naturally right.

What's the "Mackinaw" Center? I believe that was a racist reference with the assumption that ALL Native American tribe names end in "aw" (Choctaw, Chickastaw, Quapaw, etc.).

losing an argument, (s)he often resorts to specious personal attacks, such as falsely accusing someone of being racist. Smacks of desperation, SP!

Everyone must now bookmark this quote and use it in any reply to purnhrt or DonnaHoney!

about specious personal attacks, here it is. There are a wide variety of personal attacks. Calling someone a racist is only one of them.
Notice I chose to use the modifier "specious". Some people are racist. Some are racist like Strom Thurmond -- openly, directly, supporting segregation to the bitter end. Some are Archie Bunker-like. They really don't realize they are racist. They just see things through a skewed vision of the world.
I do rue the overuse of the term, racist. Before one uses the term, it should be clear that the person associated with the term warrants being labeled as such. There are libel laws, We should all be careful about all labels we place upon others.

That's not me, Wolfie.

Haven't you been warned about spreading lies about personal details of people's lives before? Consider yourself warned again.

Why what personal details am I spreading anonymous GZ?
