Just saw the Wolf of Wall Street http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iszwuX1AK6A and though it was billed as some kind of comedy but it really is an indictment of our financial system. The movie is based on the true story of a convicted stock market swindler named Jordan Belfort. This story is what underfunded regulatory agencies deal with and how the investor gets bilked while the criminal financial brokers continue to long win before they're caught (if ever). Recently Barron's weekly did a piece on Mr. Belfort. Turns out Jordan served 28 months of a 42 month sentence from his 1999 conviction.
1. I promise not to listen to anyone who says Fredtheentertainer is a fat, sloppy, four sandwich eating globe headed dog.
2. I will acknowledge that Guestzero's IQ may be greater than zero.
3. I will acknowledge that MikeyA may not be a member of the Boy Scouts of America.
4. I will not entertain any romantic intentions from Farmergal no matter how hard she tries.
5. I will not listen to anyone who insists Billy can't read.
Happy New Year to all.
So the Lucas County Democrat Party is endorsing Matt Cherry for the City Council spot vacated by incoming mayor Michael Collins. Cherry is a business representative for the Sheet Metal Workers Local 33. You remember that stellar organization--don't you?
That's the group whose members were caught stealing Romney campaign signs from private property and businesses in Lucas and Wood Counties. One can't say that these lawbreakers weren't prepared. When the Perrysburg police caught them, along with the stolen goods they found drills and other tools they used to steal 4 feet by 8 feet signs.
Two of the four men arrested held administrative positions in Local 33. Corey Beaubien is the Marketing Representative (ironic) and Chris Monaghan is a fellow business representative of Cherry. Not only does Monaghan remain in his position, it appears that Beaubien was promoted to his position after his arrest!
The local paper says the Dems are getting together to pick the person to replace Collins in District 2 http://www.toledoblade.com/Politics/2013/12/30/Dems-to-meet-to-make-endo... But they are having trouble finding Clark Felgner, I don't understand why https://www.facebook.com/clark.felgner?fref=ts and then of course there's this http://www.toledoblade.com/Daily-Log/2011/10/12/Daily-Log-10-12.html maybe they can't find him because he sold his house in 2012
I know this is a little late, but I hope everyone here had a merry Christmas and I wish you all a happy new year.

If you want to give up your country then go back to sleep or continue your pollyanna outlook.

From the department of who gives a crap any more comes this from our friendly local Lucas County Board of Elections
It was supposed to be an open and shut case of approving what had always been done in the past. A half day off with pay for Christmas and New Years for all the Board Employees.
Not so simple when you're a Scrooge in Charge of the local Republi-can'ts.
I'm almost sorry I missed the drama, but then again it's Christmas week!

Inside the Saudi 9/11 coverup
By Paul Sperry
December 15, 2013
Quote from Article:
After the 9/11 attacks, the public was told al Qaeda acted alone, with no state sponsors.
But the White House never let it see an entire section of Congress’ investigative report on 9/11 dealing with “specific sources of foreign support” for the 19 hijackers, 15 of whom were Saudi nationals.
It was kept secret and remains so today.
Whoa, if what if Todd bruning is alleging here is true, things are gonna get real interesting up in Bedford!
There's always two sides, but knowing Todd is a local gun shop owner, he's got to deal with a myriad of laws every day just to conduct business. I'm sure he's aware of the ramifications of calling someone out publically with allegations of embezzlement...
Like I said... Gonna get interesting...
Why is everyone so upset about those giant windmills they want to build near Lake Erie?
There is a ton of wind around the lake. Who profits from the electricity produced from these machines?
Isn't there something they can put on or near those windmills to keep the birds away?
(Like a giant Owl). Or how about certain lights or ultrasonic sound or an electronic scarecrow?
I posted this last year. It's interactive - read the "click" instructions at the bottom left-hand corner. (The first click is to "click" the sky area, and it starts snowing, etc.) At the end, you can hear the Ashland choir sing.
May we all have a quiet, peaceful, uneventful Christmas this year in Lucas County.
And thanks be to our Heavenly Father for sending his Son.
Leave it to the Canadians to see the danger.
Voting Democrat as a Black person in America comes home to roost.

Budget deal cuts benefits to some vets: Heartless or painless?
Some Republicans criticized the budget deal passed by the Senate Wednesday because it cuts retirement benefits to some veterans. Military cuts are often tough for Congress to stomach. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/DC-Decoder/2013/1218/Budget-deal-cuts-benef...
