Oregon PD Says Chris Harper Mercer Was Shooter


The shooter has been id'd as Chris Harper Mercer. Obama made speech hours ago blaming the NRA, etc. as the problem! That tells me a LOT about the shooter. And the victims,

Police Perform Cavity Search On Woman in Parking Lot

A woman was cavity searched by police in a parking lot in front of the public because they suspected she had drugs. I wonder if the academy taught the police this procedure. Next the police will be carrying water boarding apparatus as standard equipment.


Paralyzed Man In Wheelchair Shot Ten Times And Killed By Police

If you are in a wheel chair and follow police instructions, don't self inflict a wound with a gun. The police will come, order you to put the gun down and shoot you for trying to put the gun down. This certainly puts a new spin on driving while Black. If you run from the police, they will shoot you. If you stay in your car and follow police instructions the police will shoot you. If you are trying to kill yourself while confined to a whee chair the police will shoot you. I wonder what the police will do if someone is mowing the grass.

Superintendent Patrick Hickey has blocked me on Twitter

Ok, I went back to look at some of Patrick Hickey's Tweets and I saw he blocked me. We must have a professional here. Want to know what I said that made him block me? Wow, I would think he would have tougher skin than that. Strange that a Superintendent would block a member of the public like that only saying the obvious. Putting your head in the sand is not a solution.

I am providing a link to a story about a member of the U.S. Air Force who saved a family after Katrina hit 10 years ago, but could NOT get the image of a 3 year old girl's smile out of his mind. He just had to find her and see how she and her family were doing now.
What a great testament to the human spirit!

Here's the link...enjoy: https://www.yahoo.com/parenting/air-force-vets-touching-reunion-with-kat...

Who won the Republican debate?

I was pretty impressed with Cary Fiorina. Who did you think won the CNN debate last night?

Are you experiencing the Northern Cities Vowel Shift?

Apparently this is happening around the Great Lakes cities. The way we speak is changing because people from the Great Lakes area are changing the way they pronounce several vowels.

News From Fulton County: Charles Saunders failed to file an Ohio Supreme court merit brief on time

Saunders denied Supreme Court platform
Missed filing deadline
September 14th, 2015

Quote from article:
"The attorney, who represents himself and Fulton County residents RJ Lumbrezer and Roy Norman as complainants to the county’s charter petition, faults himself for the failure. “As a lawyer, I should have known ahead of time that this was coming down, that I should have had my merit brief in by a certain time,” he said.

GOP -- empty rhetoric. Still the party of the super-rich.

The article to which I am providing a link states the case very well. Many Republicans talk as though they want to expand the party's base, and do more for common folks. However, their rhetoric is nothing but empty promises. And these Republicans are those who are relatively moderate! As this article articulates, their policies STILL favor the super-rich. Here's the link: http://news.yahoo.com/gop-tax-proposals-tilt-rich-115915494.html

It's no wonder why the Dem frontrunner doesn't answer questions.

It's no wonder the Dem front runner doesn't answer questions. Have you seen the liberals on here. Just getting them to answer a specific question is almost exhausting.

Crazed, Racist, Underachiever Guns Down Two White Reporters On Live Television!


Two White reporters were mercilessly gunned down on live TV this morning. The crazed, disgruntled Black man also posted a 27 page diatribe explaining for the most part, how and why the "Man" made him do it! A known under-performing co-worker of the two murdered reporters, the shooter/thug was constantly causing various incidents at work, trying to intimidate others for ethnic reasons, and everything else, according to interviewed sources on the news. Then he shot himself. Watch the copycat underachieving lunatics jump on this new bandwagon!

Flag City Water experience

There are times when you have problems and the test of a company is how they respond to the problems. I had such a situation with Flag City Water where their water softener was a little underpowered for our house. After discussing the situation with them and letting them know how disappointed I was with their product, they went out of their way to fix it. Justin worked hard to upgrade our water softner for a nominal fee and went the extra step with some ohter items we wanted. So a bad situation turned better by great customer service and I came away happy with how things turned out.

You have to run from the police to get shot, Just follow their instructions and you will get shot anyway

It's all over the news, but I'll post it anyway. If a Black Man during a routine traffic stop runs from the police he will get shot. If he follows the police's instructions he will still get shot.
To all those wonderful posters who insisted that the Black Man in S.C. should have stayed in his car, what explanation do you have for the murder by a policeman in Cincinnati?


Nothing simple in the Middle East.

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.

Toledo Interim director of economic and business development has income tax liens

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.

Just Dropped by, to say Hi!

Not much has changed since I left. Same people spouting the same stuff. Didn't see Freddie the Entertainer guess his TPS job quieted him down.
