Sandy Isenberg-Disservice to Toledo

Sandy Isenberg is not a "political analyst". Sandy Isenberg is nothing more than a talking loud mouth. FYI, she does not believe School Board Members are "real elected officials"! Hey Sandy, how is that roof holding up, https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1350&dat=20020817&id=zYUUAAAAIBAJ...

The question is not if Washington Local violated state law during its Issue 2 levy campaign in 2014, but to what extent

Updated with Patrick Hickey's statement

My curiosity was stirred in watching everything going on at Washington Local and stirred even more once Superintendent Patrick Hickey blocked me on Twitter for stating the obvious. Seeing a disturbing behavior here I decided to look at some things that were done in the past to really get a grasp on how things are run in Washington Local….and I did not have to go far to find out how bad things were run during the 2014 Issue 2 levy campaign.

We can all agree that when you operate in a certain environment, there are some things that are well known to anyone including rules and regulations. If you pay a lawyer, you expect them to know the laws and proper procedures. But it seems like "Levy 101" items at Washington Local are missed by the leaders who are paid to know what is OK and not OK. There are no excuses on why these laws are being violated, and there are questions that the citizens of the district need to ask the board members and their administration (I don’t live in the district).

Superintendent Patrick Hickey's lawyer asks resident to remove critical posts

Washington Local Superintendent has threatened to sue a resident of the district for critical posts she made on her blog and on social media. Today, a lawyer for Superintendent Patrick Hickey asked Washington Local resident to delete blog posts and comments she made on social media about Hickey. This morning, Terri Kern was sent the following cease and desist letter by Dennis Pergram of Delaware, Ohio:


Ms. Kern:

Stainbrook's spends $20k in Party Money on legal fees and loses

In an attempt to restore himself and one of his girlfriends to the local Board of Elections, Jon Stainbrook spent nearly $20,000 in local party funds to sue Jon Husted in the Ohio Supreme Court.

He lost.

When all is said and done, the local Republican Party is out $20 grand it could have spent on other things such as money for candidates or funds for local party operations.

Oregon PD Says Chris Harper Mercer Was Shooter

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!

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.

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!
