CNN, MSNBC, and WSPD radio—what do they have in common? Other than low ratings compared to their competitors, they devote most of their time to berating Donald Trump—yet clamor to get him on their shows.

I listened to the Scott Sands show on August 2, from 4:30-6 p.m.; and he devoted about 75 of that 90 minutes to making fun of Trump (admittedly, he spent some of the time talking about “gun nuts"). This is coupled with the debacle of the previous morning when Fred LeFebvre didn’t think he was talking to the real Donald Trump.

I’ve heard both of these talk show hosts say they won’t vote for Hillary and probably not Trump; but when I listen to them, their comments heavily lean toward demeaning Trump (with a very occasional swipe at Hillary). Now, they would probably say, “Trump just does and says so many more outrageous things.” That’s great. Then see how an AM radio talk station survives with just Hillary supporters.

Time to boycott WSPD sponsors. Here's a short list to start with:

Toledo Take Three

I am happy to pass that Fred Lefebvre has confirmed that Monday morning at 7:20 am. he will be speaking with Eric Trump.
Well, done Fred!!!! Thank you for bringing us the opportunity to hear what he has to say.

You can find Fred on 1370 WSPD at iheartmedia, inc.......check him out.

Toledo Take Three......


I am not sure about you, but I am TIRED. Tired of reading self serving bloggers thoughts on this town that they really do not genuinely care about. It is with my heart, a heart that started beating right here in Toledo, that I am writing today.

Over the last week I have had a great opportunity to interact with people in this community and the common thread or census if you will; is that they are tired of reading from certain blogger (s) that write with the intent to self serve.

As I begin, yes another BLOG, I ask what do you want to hear about?

Baumhower Found Guilty of Domestic Violence

WLS defamer Jeremy Baumhower was handed a guilty verdict in his November 3, 2015, domestic violence charge against his soon to be ex-wife, Shannon Tarsha. Baumhower has denied he injured Tarsha during this encounter and that he was "defending himself" after she flipped out on him. He went on to accuse her of suffering from bipolar disorder and claims she had recently changed medications, which is what (he claims) caused her to flip out. The judge requested evidence of this, which Baumhower failed to produce.

WSPD radio: Old White Men all the Time

WSPD 1370 demographics are old white men all the time. Their Facebook restricts anyone with an opposing view. They promote FoxNews nonsense selling Sleep Number beds and garage doors to the old of Toledo. Got a message from a Don Bauer who wrote:

Seen your comment on WSPD facebook. Speaking of deleted comments well they blocked me from ever making any comments on their site. They don't want any conflicting comments. If you agree with them and praise them then you will continue to be allowed to post on WSPD. I criticized them and they blocked me. So goes for free speech at WSPD.

Bernie Fans Say 'Fart-In' Against Hillary Will Go On


Bernie Fans Say 'Fart-In' Against Hillary Will Go On
Unswayed by his endorsement, progressives continue to stockpile beans for the Democratic convention.

From Article:
Advocates for poor people and progressive causes say they still plan to make a stink – literally – during Hillary Clinton’s big night accepting the Democratic presidential nomination this month.

Sylvania Schools "survey" - Looking at income tax

So the pre-levy survey is live on the Sylvania Schools website. It's a simple SurveyMonkey survey. Not sure who they've hired to do their PR for this go round, but if it's Mark Luetke and FLS, they are not getting their money's worth. They've tipped their hand about asking for a school income tax in Question 12:

12. You may be aware that Sylvania Schools over time have traditionally asked for community support via a property tax levy. In the future, if the district was to offer a different option to support our schools, which statement would you agree with most?



So I was flipping around channels and lo and behold who do I see on MSNBC? Brian Williams! At first I thought he might have been brought back to report on Hillary lying (after all, he can relate), but I checked and saw that he is a permanent fixture on that stellar network. I'm telling you--it's a match made in heaven!

Anyway, Williams was reporting on the Dallas shootings; and he had quite the tale to tell:


If you haven’t heard about Attorney General Loretta Lynch meeting with Bill Clinton in a private plane in Arizona—this post is probably not for you. That’s because it assumes that you are at least somewhat aware of this occurrence and have an idea as to why it’s a hot topic.

But if you’re like me, for situations like these I long for a timeline of information. I can’t stand listening to the agenda-driven television “news” commentators drone on about what they suppose—who cares?

I finally heard an interview with the Arizona television station reporter, Christopher Sign, who was tipped-off as to the fact that Clinton was waiting on his private plane for the arrival of Lynch’s private plane. The reporter travelled to the airport and here’s what he witnessed:

Conversation with a Union Democrat


Recently had following conversation with an auto worker, union member, Democrat - self described, plus his baseball cap and jacket logos agreed. We were watching fast-food CNN tv reporting on the presidential candidates. This guy was a fellow-geezer, meaning 60's or thereabouts.

This fella asked me who I voted for in the primary, so I told him... Trump. He then launched into his reasons for voting for Trump also. He repeated, "I'm a Democrat and I'm voting for Trump. All my buddies are voting for Trump also."

Find a dog to love that is not a pit bull!


I am linking to two articles describing a fatal attack by two dogs on the friend of a college professor, in the owner's yard. The dogs are described as, "American bulldog mixes." Along with killing the woman, the dogs also bit their owner as he tried to protect his friend! Here are the links: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/06/28/connecticut-woman-brutally-attacked... and: http://www.nhregister.com/general-news/20160628/new-haven-police-will-no...

Would Some Politicians Want To Wreck The U.S. Economy So They Can Get Richer For Pennies On The Dollar?

It is my belief that Republicans during the 2008 Presidential Election planned to finish wrecking the U.S. Economy so that their buddies could get richer for pennies on the dollar.. Of course we all know they didn't succeed, but they are still at it. This 2016 election year we have the same problem, but we will able to go play golf in Scotland!

Cleveland, Ohio, and America lose a great man -- George Voinonvich


George Voinovich won his first elective office by taking a strong stand against a Fair Housing law. Years later, as mayor of Cleveland, he signed into law a strong Fair Housing law. Some would label this as a "flip-flop." To George Voinovich, it was plain common sense. Times had changed, and he had changed with them. Unlike so many ideologues of both the right and left, especially today, George Voinovich was willing to compromise.

150 days and counting , the baddest , 'bloodiest' , most negative election campaign is on . Who stands victorious in November

A question about rape


With the recent Stanford rape story in the headlines, this question came to mind. Any barristers out there please feel free to answer.
A male and female are both so drunk they are not legally capable of giving consent. They engage in sex where no force or violence or coercion is used.
Question: Are they both guilty of rape?

Pope Francis is the best Pope of my lifetime.


I will provide a link to an article on the latest apostolic letter issued by Pope Francis. In it, he establishes the strongest reaction yet regarding abuse by church officials. I am not Catholic, however I was taught to always hold clergy of any faith in the highest regard. Pope Francis is doing everything he can to repair the image of Catholic clergy, not only to other Catholics, but to those who follow other faiths as well.

Parallels between Baylor University scandal and Republican Party's nominating The Donald for POTUS

Baylor University is a Christian, faith-based, private university the leadership of which enabled innumerable male university athletes in allowing them to create and maintain an air of sexual terror among the female population of that campus.

Patrick Hickey, Washington Local Schools

Whatever happened to Patrick Hickey, the former superintendent of Washington Local School District? Back in December 2015, Patrick Hickey allegedly stated that he planned to file complaints with the Ohio Ethics Commission against Washington Local Board of Education members Patricia Carmean and James Langenderfer, but to the best of my knowledge, there have been no reports about any such ethics complaints ever actually having been filed. And, what of the proclamation by Patrick Hickey that he was planning to seek election in 2017 to become a Member of the Washington Local Board of Education?
