Pounds: Toledo Free Press to close

We fought long and hard to make sure this day would never come, but it’s with a heavy heart that I must announce Toledo Free Press is closing.


Between years of legal wrangling and ongoing struggles with predatory ad pricing from a competitor, business conditions are such that we can no longer continue.

Pro-abortion group endorses Anita Lopez

In via e-mail (press release for those who need everything spelled out wink): Anita Lopez earns the Emily List endorsement for mayor and from experience you don't get an endorsement unless you have the same beliefs as the supporting organization. Normally you have to fill out a long survey that goes on file with the organization talking about the issues the organization hold dear. If beliefs line up, they give you an endorsement.

Citigroup hasn’t paid taxes in 4 years, got $2.5 trillion from feds

Citigroup hasn’t paid taxes in 4 years, got $2.5 trillion from feds

Obama is more important than god--you better believe it--amen!

Remember the Constitution? Remember how we were all supposed to have the freedom to pursue our religious beliefs? That freedom went away with the advent of Obamacare.

Hobby Lobby, a company owned by a Christian family, filed a lawsuit challenging the Obamacare mandate requiring the firm to provide their employees with insurance coverage for the morning-after and week-after birth control pills. Although the Hobby Lobby owners indicated they supported other forms of birth control, these two pills were analogous to abortion, which the owners oppose.

As has been the case with the liberal judicial system, the court ruled against Hobby Lobby.

So companies no longer have the freedom to decide what benefits they offer to their employees--even if they are paying for it. Obama has rendered our Country unrecognizable. How any Christian could have voted for this man--well, it would have required a big dose of rationalization (or a skin-color trumping).

Gephardt and Hostess? Say it isn't so

Here's an excerpt from and excellent article on Hostess- Ripplewood's foray into Hostess was partly enabled by Collins's connections in the Democratic Party. He wanted to explore deals with union-involved companies and sought the help of former congressman Gephardt, who in 2005 founded the Gephardt Group, an Atlanta consulting firm that provides "labor advisory services." In his 2004 presidential bid, Gephardt -- whose father was a Teamsters milk truck driver -- was endorsed by 21 of the largest U.S.

You didn't build this business alone, someone helped you along the way.....

Maybe it was a teacher, or a taxpayer who gave you $21 million in grants and credits, but you didn't do it yourself.................The Amonix solar manufacturing plant in North Las Vegas, heavily financed under an Obama administration energy initiative, has closed its 214,000-square-foot facility 14 months after it opened.

Officials at Amonix headquarters in Seal Beach, Calif., have not responded to repeated calls for comment this week. The company today began selling equipment, from automated tooling systems to robotic welding cells.

Taxpayer Dollars "At Work"

Don't let people tell you that Obama doesn't know how to create jobs. As an example, Obama distributed $9 billion in taxpayer dollars to fund solar and wind projects that created 910 "direct" jobs.

Now those anti-Obama slugs might say, "Wow, that's $9.8 million per job created." Well, you teabagging losers--that's not counting the 4,600 "indirect" jobs that were created. Let's see: 910 + 4600 = 5,510 divided into $9 billion--that's only $1.63 million per job. See--if Obama had an additional $100 million he could create another 61 jobs!

WHOIS behind OccupyWallStreet? A fat-cat, rich Canadian socialist with a Napoleon complex.

So who is behind this so-called "grass roots" effort called Occupy Wall Street? A simple search shows that a fat cat, rich Canadian socialist and megalomaniac is the puppet master of the usful idiots. And as usual, the Socialists in America are flocking to their new owner.

You can look up the information yourself. Check my work, please. Make yourselves even MORE useful idiots.

The Gospel of APA: This weekend in Los Angeles Asian-American Lawyers and judges “PUTTIN' ON THE RITZ”

If you're blue and you don't know
Where to go to why don't you go
Where fashion sits
Puttin' on the Ritz

If this song ever made it to TLR, one would have thought it would be in connection with some people mentioned in earlier posts.

We did not, however, expect that it will be in connection with NAPABA-- the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association. C'est la vie.

This weekend, November 17-21, 2010 the NAPABA Annual Convention will be held at the new Ritz Carlton Hotel in Los Angeles.
