ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Here's something Target Corp. isn't advertising in its Sunday circular: The discount retailer is now a major donor to a group backing the Republican candidate for Minnesota governor.
And that's not sitting well with every Target shopper.

SEC Exempt From Freedom Of Information Act.

Here we go, another lie out of the mouth of Obama. Remember when the great one said, "government will be transparent so the citizens will know what and how we are doing it" Well the freedom of information act no longer applies to the media, the citizen, or the SEC. This allows the Whitehouse to answer to no one,its their word or no one's now.

THE smearing of Shirley Sherrod ought to be a turning point in U.S. politics. This is not a "teachable moment." It is a time for action.

The mainstream media and the Obama Administration must stop cowering before a right wing that has persistently forced its propaganda to be accepted as news by convincing traditional journalists that "fairness" requires treating extremist rants as "one side of the story."

The Toledo Blade Letter: Rich Iott faring better than ex-workers

Iott faring better than ex-workers
http://www.toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20100720/OPINION03...
Rich Iott is lending himself $800,000 for his campaign (“Iott loans $823,100 to House campaign,” July 17).

It appears the man who ran the Seaway Food Town grocery stores out of town is doing much better than the 4,000 or so former Food Town employees.

I wonder how many of them will donate to his campaign.

Will Clear Channel go Bankrupt?

Often we hear complaints from Clear Channel employees about their substandard pay and benefits when comparing to unionized workers. Over and over they feel under compensated while still promoting an economic system that has impoverished them. While they do this from ignorance or from orders from the top the following will give a little insight as to what were dealing with. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/business/july-dec10/makingsense_07-16.html

Quote from article:
"In case after case, Washington’s web of subsidies and tax breaks effectively takes money from the middle class and hands it out to speculators and have-mores. We subsidize drug companies, oil companies, agribusinesses disguised as “family farms” and “clean energy” firms that aren’t energy-efficient at all. We give tax breaks to immensely profitable corporations that don’t need the money and boondoggles that wouldn’t exist without government favoritism.

Boehner: The most unhappy fellow in Washington

The Most Unhappy Fellow

Author Gail Collins
Quote from New York Times article:
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/01/opinion/01collins.html?_r=1&ref=gailco...
"Boehner looked burned-out in the interview, like a sullen college student sitting through a boring seminar. A very tanned, puffy-eyed, 60-year-old college student.

What was his problem? Joe Scarborough, the MSNBC talk-show host and former Republican congressman, volunteered an answer: Boehner had the work ethic of a sullen college student as well.

Republicans Push for a Double-Dip Recession

Posted: July 1, 2010
It is clear from recent legislative actions that the Republicans in Congress want to ensure large electoral gains in November by undermining any possible economic recovery. This cynical ploy needs to be called out by Democrats, so that the American people will see how Republicans will do anything to gain political power.

Obama's Socialist Advisers Push Immigration Reform to "Create a Governing Coalition For the Long Term"

Why, in a time of high U.S. unemployment, is the Obama Administration seriously considering Rep. Luis Gutierrez's Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America's Security and Prosperity bill which would grant citizenship to up to 20 million illegal immigrants.

The answer has little to do with humanity, national security or prosperity.

It is all about power, raw Democratic socialist power. It is all about 8,000,000 more Democratic Party votes and the creation of a governing coalition for the long term.

The Toledo Blade Opinion June 28, 2010
http://www.toledoblade.com/article/20100628/OPINION02/6280315/-1/OPINION
A certain portion of the population responds to every hike in a city fee or reduction in a city service by saying: See! It's no wonder people are leaving Toledo in droves.

Problem is, they're not.

According to the latest estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau, Toledo lost fewer than 500 residents between July 1, 2008, and July 1, 2009. That's hardly a flood, and it's better than how Akron, Dayton, or Cleveland fared over the same period.
