The can't-do president?

A leading right-wing newspaper continues its unjustified attacks on President Obama's performance in the foreign arena. Oh wait ...

Toledo Water question

Tagged:  

I don't have a Toledo Talk account--so I hope you'll allow me to ask this question on SB. Ever since the Toledo water situation it seems like the water pressure in my house is lower. I'm debating if I should call my plumber to have it checked out.

Anyone else experiencing the same low-pressure issue?

Expect links soon from the usual suspects

.....a new source to back up Alex Jones etc
The Occupy Wall Street movement, which blazed brightly two years ago amid a sea of arrests, vandalism and attacks against the wealthy, is coming back in the form of an online TV channel.
Occupy Television, in conjunction with FilmOn Networks, the National Convention PBC and a new union of the groups Occupy Television, ArticleV.org, and the National General Assembly, vows to bring the group's mission to the masses.

How Many White People Have Had Trouble With White Cops?

Tagged:  

Back around 1970, a kid I went to school with, broke into Pier One, in Sylvania. He was shot in the back fleeing the scene, I believe, by a Sylvania cop. He was lucky, he lived. Back then, Sylvania was mainly White, as were the two PDs. Let's face it, I grew up in that area, and although most cops there were OK, there were a couple who fucked with people a lot. A police department is a perfect place for bullies to gravitate to. So, how many White People have been seriously fucked with, by White Cops?

And so it ends........

Democrats Prosecutorial abuses

As I predicted Texas Governor Rick Perry's attorney's have filed to have the case dismissed outright with prejudice. Go to the link to read the writ.

I must say this is one of the best writs I've seen in a while. It details why using the courts for political reasons is a bad idea and the freedoms it attacks on us and our political system.

Unidentified gasbags

"Talk-radio gasbags"? The folks at WPOS? The Juice? Not WGTE? I wish Kushma would have been more precise in his name-calling. We're left with no solid idea about whom he's talking. He does admit that he asked the question that drew out the 9/11 response, but didn't mention how he phrased it.

democrat voter suppression in lucas county

Poor Jack Ford. He knows that his dynamic leadership and personality are being wasted by limiting himself to City jobs (is he not the Black Robin Williams?), but he just can't catch a break.

So he decides to run as an Independent against Edna Brown for the Ohio Senate and the Democrats contest his candidacy. What? That's voter suppression I tell ya! Those damn Democrats are limiting our voting options!

I already had my JACK FORD, BRINGING SEXY BACK yard sign and then this! I'm blaming YOU Steve Steel. You should be made to live in the strange-smelling fog of smoke that surrounds your house during the Old West End festival (what a minute--you already do that).

Jack Ford seemingly has everything one needs when it comes to being elected in Toledo/Lucas County--he's Black, he loves unions and--he's Black!

Follow up

A month or so ago aCOWARD announced he'd be reporting my to local LGBT groups for my homophobic post. I have yet to hear from any of the groups and wondered if maybe the complaint got lost in the mail or if the threat was an internet show of muscle. In any case here's my interview on this weekend's Pride Festival with Marketing Dir Kelly Heuss who never mentioned receiving the complaint.

When microcystin attacks

Who are you going to believe, a slick PR firm hired by the mayor or your trustworthy friends on social media? Are you going to make sure your loved ones are safe or risk watching them die a horrible, agonizing death? Can we really be certain the microcystin hasn't mutated and found new hosts on land, including the turf at local high school football stadiums?
