Big labor asswipes finally wake up to the fact that they were played by the Dems in order to get Obama reelected. Now they aren't happy about what's in the Affordable? Healthcare Act that their elected officials refused to read before passing.
Normally Mrignorant would keep us updated on any news from Michigan regarding Gov Snyder. His posts about Snyder failing, poll numbers falling, unions hating him etc etc are scattered throughout SB.
It's possible he missed this story while getting dressed in his pink chiffon for a night out so I thought I'd post it for him.
BOE member Jon Stainbrrok apparently enticed one of his fellow Republicans to file yet a 3rd attempt to cancel the residency of fellow Republican board member Anthony DeGidio. Stainbrook apparently makes enemies of anyone who doesn't agree with him and Degidio has made clear his intentions to stop Stainbrook's abuses at the BOE including support of incompetents and abuse of employees by Stainbrook. DeGidio has indicated his desire to vote to remove Gallagher from the BOE as recommended by the SOS John Husted.
In what is being reported as a surprise move, the 40,000 members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) announced that they have formally ended their association with the AFL-CIO, one of the nation's largest private sector unions. The Longshoremen citied Obamacare and immigration reform as two important causes of their disaffiliation.
Last month Sandra Meeks-Speller was fired by the TPS Board members despite the recommendation of a third party referee that she retain her job. Tuesday I'll look into the story with her advocate Dr. Earl Murry . Earl and I go back a few years and he has asked to come on the show to deal with this firing. He believes this teacher got a raw deal.
Here's the story to refresh your memory-TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
TPS board members voted 4-1 Tuesday to fire Assistant Principal Sandra Meeks-Speller, effective immediately.
Tim Wise, an author and speaker on the issue of racism and white privilege will be speaking at Woodward High School September 12, 2013 at 7PM. The community should join in the conversation to address the issues surrounding Race in America.
Bill turkey neck O'reilly another right wing closet queer and gumba of Fox news whose wife used to screw Flavor Flav had to apologize for telling lies again, which is the standard at fox news, influencing their dumb ass audiences with make believe which they suck right up.

I have cut & pasted this from Facebook.
I totally agree with this.
The below summarization of Barack and Michelle Obama’s 5 year reign in the White House is by far the best I’ve ever read as it squarely hits the nail on the head. And it took a black reporter writing it to make it as effective as it is. A white man’s account would be instantly criticized by the liberal media as pure racism. But, how can anyone scream Racist when an exacting description of the Obamas is penned by a well known journalist of color?
BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE EVER!
WHITE MALE SUPREMACY AND THE GOOD OLE BOYS NETWORK GONE WILD: Judge G. Todd Baugh of Montana, sentenced a 54 year old white male school teacher to serve 30 days in jail for raping a 14 year old female child, who later committed suicide. Time served will also be taken off of the 30 day sentence. The judge’s rationale is that the 14 year old child was, “a troubled youth, older than her chronological age.” He also stated, "Obviously, a 14-year-old can't consent. I think that people have in mind that this was some violent, forcible, horrible rape," Baugh said Tuesday.
TPS Superintendent Dr. Romules Durant was interviewed this morning on WSPD by Fred LeFebvre.
After listening to the interview, I have one message for anyone who lives in, works in, owns a business in and/or lives near Toledo--be afraid, be very afraid.
Once you get past Durant's speech impediment and his propensity to say "in regards to" every 20 seconds (not to mention the difficulty he has with subject/verb agreement--e,g. "There need to be..."), the context of his ideas are scary.
He indicates that TPS needs to provide a "Cradle to career" experience for Toledo children and that poor-performing students represent a "Community issue that's going to take a community solution." What?! How about parents accepting the responsibility to motivate their children to value education and respect teachers? It's as if he's come to the decision that TPS parents can't be expected to carry through on even the most basic parental duties.

Bill talks with author and New York Times journalist Mark Leibovich about his latest book, This Town, in which he writes that money rules D.C., and status is determined by who you know and what they can do for you.
Great story for all of you who hate Rush and were hoping Cumulus would drop him. Despite compliants by owners of Cumulus that Limbaugh comments were hurting the bottom lline, apparently they weren't hurting it much.
Cumulus will continue to pay Premiere (Clear Channel) for the rights to carry Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh has signed a new three-year deal with Cumulus, he revealed Friday.

My take from the article:
Gary Shores and Harvey Steele. WKKO-FM 99.9’s 5-to-10 a.m. remains No. 1. in Arbitron.
From today's Detroit Free Press, the more liberal of the two Detroit newspapers, comes this non surprise.
Two independent pension studies appear to back Detroit emergency manager Kevyn Orr’s position that the city’s retirement funds are seriously underfunded and based on optimistic assumptions — major reasons Orr has given for pushing the city into bankruptcy — the Free Press has learned.
As the University of Toledo prepares to begin a new school year, it marks what should be an interesting time. Joe Zerby, president and general manager of the Toledo Blade, has assumed the position of chairman of the UT Board of Trustees--and from what I've heard from UT employees--he hasn't wasted any time putting his mark on the operations of the University.
The UT upper-level administration continues to run the institution with an iron fist and a level of cluelessness that makes Vik Kapoor look like a management genius. The good news is they each continue to collect their $300,000+ salaries and 6-figure longevity bonuses (you gotta love getting a bonus just because you lasted through the year).
"Why can't I have a job like that," you might be wondering. Well, you can see if you got what it takes by completing the CAN YOU BE JUST AS INCOMPETENT AS A HIGH-PAID UT ADMINISTRATOR? quiz.

Seattle -- One man was left trembling after another pulled a loaded firearm on him and reportedly demanded that he apologize to black people for all the wrongs white people have done to them. Police arrested the suspect, finding the firearm and ammunition.
Chikwanha E. Nyashanu, 35-years old, is being held on $100,000 bail with prosecutors seeking to increase the amount to $500,000, according to Brandi Kruse of MyNorthwest.com. "King County District Court Judge Arthur R. Chapman called his actions 'inexplicable' and deemed him a danger to the community," she wrote.
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.
