I smell another Apology Tour, 2.0. Next stop to kiss the ring of NorCom leader?
I know that this post is politically incorrect, perhaps even naïve. The general public is often blind to the world of giant corporations and the "play" money which are the earnings of thousands of corporate middle and upper management executives. But, I've always enjoyed tilting at windmills. Until and unless we, as a general public, decide that paying more nearly competitive salaries to top government officials will yield better run government, we will continue to get the government we are willing to pay for.
For those of you that listen to Rush Limbaugh, you might want to know he tried to fool you today. He did so by taking Sen. Tom Harkin's words out of context. Hopefully you all had the sense to check things out for yourselves before believing everything you heard.
Was reading through the Blade this morning and happened upon this story of a shooting in West Toledo.
Wondered if the victim's name seemed familiar to anyone else.
A paragraph in the article says that company's have moved to non-union states and other countries. Wouldn't it be easier to make Lucas County like the other states and countries than to bring in illeagal immigrants er I mean immigrants? Then maybe more residents, at least the ones left here, could start business's without government interferance.
That's righttttttt! Lois Lehrners' "30,000 lost forever" e-mails have magically re-appeard. That will be a result of the rest of the dimocrats party scurrying up the gangplank and heading for the door(think: rat scene from "Titannic") She'll be revisiting Congress. Sooner rather than later
Obama Can Reform Dark Money With a Stroke of a Pen
Quote from article:
"President Barack Obama can issue an executive order today that requires government contractors to disclose their dark-money campaign contributions.
Why doesn’t he? And why don’t campaign-finance-reform organizations push for such a fix?
Yet Gruber joined the HHS payroll right after Obama took office, in March 2009. He was paid $392,600 to consult on ObamaCare. Some might call this kind of arrangement “corruption.”
It’s like an expert witness appearing in court to swear that BP never spilled any oil while working as BP’s $400,000-a-year publicist.
Gruber made 1.5 million
Washington Post confirms Jonathan Gruber was a consultant for Obamacare - read this Hot Air post to see their argument unravel - warning, to see the lie unraveled does make your blood pressure rise.
According to Dennis Gartman, a breakthrough in nuclear fusion by Lockheed-Martin is going to make petroleum go the way of whale oil. Here's the article from the Yahoo-Finance website: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/gartman-were-witnessing-end-oil-221420996....
A new pipeline to go through Fulton County? Why are they skipping around Lucas County?
The Dept of Justice had previously stated that there was not enough to bring charges of any Civil Rights violations.
Now experts have say that the autopsy report supports the testimony of Officer Wilson.
The damning evidence is that there is a wound on Brown's thumb with gun powder residue inside the wound and Brown's blood inside the Officer's vehicle. That suggests there was a struggle over the weapon in the car.
In true "Let them eat cake" royal tradition, Michelle Obama is insisting that public school students eat meager lunches with such kid-friendly items as kale while her daughters are enjoying gourmet-like meals at their exclusive private school.
The Michelle inspired school lunch program has been met with such negative reviews that there's a Twitter hashtag (#ThanksObama) where students post pictures of their pathetic school meals.
However, Malia's and Sasha's lunches at the Sidwell Friends School are enough to fill tummies with mouth-watering delights. According to the school's website (link provided later), October 24's lunch will be:
Buffalo Chicken Salad
I can't understand why homosexual people want to get married by a Christian minister or in a Christian Church. They have chosen a lifestyle that clearly contradicts the teaching of both the Old and New Testaments but they insist on marrying under Christian traditions. A Christian couple was fined $10,000 by the State of New York and ordered to pay a lesbian couple $1,500 each for not allowing them to marry on their property. http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2014/09/27/gay-mafia-claims-another-...
From lagging 'job creation' to lower charity giving, the wealthy give less back to society
A new report shows that the wealthy are giving only 4.6% of their salaries to charity, compared to 16.6% of those earning $25,000 or less. The least generous? Those who make $500,000 to a few million a year
The true GOP Jobs Plan came out, and it's full of NOTHING, LITERALLY:
Here's my take on Boner's plan:
1) Talk a lot and do nothing
2) Endless Benghazi hearings to keep the morons riled up
3) Endless votes to repeal Obamacare
4) Shut down the government (again)
5) Hope the previous 4 are enough to get him and his buddies re-elected so they keep their jobs (instead of having to get new ones in the private sector).
There's a popular riddle that goes like this: A young boy and his father are in a car accident. The father dies at the scene. The boy is transported to the hospital and taken immediately into surgery, but the surgeon steps out of the operating room and says, "I can't operate on this boy--he's my son!" Who's the surgeon?
It's likely that in today's society more people would come up with the answer compared to 30 or more years ago. Of course, the surgeon is the boy's mother.
Just as this riddle requires thinking outside of the stereotypical box, Toledoans need to get a grip on the reality of Jeep leaving Toledo. Many of the arguments for why Jeep will/should stay in Toledo are gullible--at best.
Toledo has the skilled workers needed to produce Jeeps--Why would a state-of-the-art production facility making aluminum unibody Jeeps need production line workers?
Toledo is Jeep and Jeep is Toledo--Do people honestly think this means anything to Fiat?
JP Morgan/Chase is one of those private sector behemoths which is "too big to fail." This is NOT a partisan statement. Both Republican AND Democratic leaders lined up to dump gigantic piles of our tax dollars into the corporate troughs to be devoured by these welfare kings and queens in their thousand dollar+ suits, wearing their solid gold Rolex watches.
Remember how the summer was filled with news about illegal children coming over the Mexican border? And then--in true Obama/Holder fashion--what happened to the minors became a secret. The Associated Press now reports that these children have been dispersed around the Country leaving local schools and U.S. taxpayers responsible for taking care of these "students" who can't speak English and come with physical and emotional issues.
How complacent we have become as a citizenry. We're like beaten dogs--Obama has spat in the face of this Country so frequently that we sit back and take it hoping that it won't get worse--but it does.
The brazen disregard for this Country is evidenced by the fact that the federal government didn't give the school districts advanced notice that these illegals were coming. According to an AP article, Donald Hattier, a school board member for a Delaware district that was dumped with these illegal kids, said advance warning would have helped with planning. The federal government, he said, "just dropped this on us."
Audit the New York Fed
Rand Paul and Elizabeth Warren finally got the Audit the Fed passed with a bipartisan margin of 333 to 92, Right wing media has fought this for years and with the Banksters crashing the economy and Eric Holder leaving maybe we can retake America from the oligarchs.
