Several leading candidates for POTUS have made remarks about how, when THEY become POTUS, THEY will "take out ISIS!" It's just not that simple.
Calvin Lawshe, the newly named interim director of economic and business development for the city of Toledo, has two active Ohio income tax liens.
A search of the Lucas County Clerk of Courts finds that Lawshe has a lien filed on his home for back Ohio income taxes of $2,901.34 (filed in 2012) and another lien for $35,105.80 in unpaid Ohio income taxes (filed in 2011). And this man is supposed to be an economic developer?
I'm sure that Mayor Hicks-Hudson and Lawshe will have some convoluted excuse for this situation, but if Toledo is willing to allow a person with these financial issues (Lawshe also had two previous liens) to assume a role in the mayor's inner circle--you may as well put the final shovel of dirt on the City's grave.

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.
The charges against a Chicago policeman were dismissed for shooting a Black Woman in the back of the head. According to the news report, an off-duty policeman ordered a group of people at a park to stop being loud and one of the group pulled a gun. The policeman fired several times into the crowd striking an unarmed female in the back of the head. This sounds very suspicious. No gun was found and no one in the crowd was charged with pulling a gun. I guess making too much noise in a park gets the death penalty.
Remember, the President is smarter than the Republicans and everything they do is them playing right into his hands.
Also, by utilizing their Constitutional mandated duties they were accused of treason on this board.
In truth all of that was B.S. being pushed by those who have failed to grasp a basic understanding of how their government works.

Majority of Republican Central Committee members recruited by Stainbrook didn’t vote in November Election
Does anyone think this was not the case? :)
Republican Governor John Kasich and the Ohio GOP may not care that over half of the Lucas County Republican Party Central Committee (LCRP-CC) members recruited by Jon Stainbrook did not vote in the November General Election.

Dr Gary L Wolfram:
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.
Remember the hope and change that we all were going to realize when we elected a black man to be President? Remember how Joe Biden bragged that Obama was "clean and a nice looking guy"--and he was black? Remember how Obama was going to reverse the negative image the U.S had around the world--while being black?
The thing we will remember about the Obama Presidency is that when you elect someone who has never accomplished anything outside of politics--you end up with someone who can't handle the job.
Most Presidents have something besides their political careers to their credit:
Jimmy Carter was a peanut farmer
George W. Bush was managing partner of a MLB team
George Washington was a land surveyor
Richard Nixon was a Lieutenant Commander in the Navy
Ronald Reagan was an actor
...and Barack Obama was a community organizer (which is code for a person who gets poor people to the polls to vote for Democrats). Oh yes, and he taught part-time at a college. Honestly, if your daughter brought a guy home who had those credentials wouldn't you think "she'll be supporting this guy FOREVER"?
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?
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.
Professor Gruber, an architect of obimacare, has made at least three videos attesting to the fact that the Bill couldn't pass, without the stupidity of the American Voter! That must be how the rest of the politicians in the democrats' party see their constituents. Although some are pissed off about Grubers' accurate assessment, I'm glad to for once, to see a democrat elite telling the truth.
Yesterday a bombshell was dropped on Toledo. Denny Schaffer 105.5 interview with Bruce Baumhower https://soundcloud.com/dsnorulesradio/the-denny-schaffer-show-bruce-baum... CEO Sergio Marchionne made the statement at the Paris car show that Fiat is making plans to make a new unibody independently suspended ALUMINUM bodied Wrangler. Now if that's not enough to scare the bejebus out of the four wheel drive market Sergio continued to say it may not be built in Toledo. HOLY SHIT!
"he had no family ties in the union, which helped other members get steady jobs" (because actual qualifications for the work being done, well - that's just silly)
"Knowing that members who committed crimes on behalf of the union - referred to as "nightwork" - got the best jobs, Walsh let it be known to its then-longtime head, Joseph Dougherty, and four business agents "that he was willing to perform whatever crimes were necessary," Livermore wrote.
