I smell another Apology Tour, 2.0. Next stop to kiss the ring of NorCom leader?
In a show of courage today the President normalized relations with the communist country that has been opposed to capitalism and free speech.
Oh!!!! It's Cuba! That's right.
I am sorry I get confused between those despotic communist countries that have been confiscating wealth and property from it's civilians, preventing free speech, and threatened to attack us.
Here's hoping he starts lecturing Israel on "stolen lands" that were taken through a war where Israel was unprovokingly attacked.
I know that this post is politically incorrect, perhaps even naïve. The general public is often blind to the world of giant corporations and the "play" money which are the earnings of thousands of corporate middle and upper management executives. But, I've always enjoyed tilting at windmills. Until and unless we, as a general public, decide that paying more nearly competitive salaries to top government officials will yield better run government, we will continue to get the government we are willing to pay for.
A recent comment I made to a story on Swampbubbles where I indicated that one way Toledo could afford to boost its police force (and thus help rid itself of the gangs and losers who have brought the City to the brink of Detroitism) is to privatize as many City services as possible.
It's a simple concept--get government out of the employment business. Other than covering the safety and judicial needs of its citizens, a City shouldn't have people on its payroll who perform services that the government could contract out. These services include maintaining City property (cutting lawns, etc.), clearing snow, fixing streets, etc.
My comment was met by one Swampbubbles contributor with the response, "prove that this would save money." Well, here's some proof.
December 8, 2014 to a packed standing room only township meeting the Swan Creek Board of Trustees voted unanimously against the Nexus/Spectra Pipeline.
Trustee: Give us more pipeline info
Quote from article:
The Andersons bringing back the giant cheese wheel that was a highlight of the Christmas season at Tiedtke's spurs memories of other Toledo holiday traditions. Here are things I remember--how about you?
*My family would make a seasonal trip downtown to the Bassett Nut Company. The smell of freshly roasted peanuts and cashews was amazing!
*As a kid, our family Christmas Eve tradition was to have dinner at either Linck's Cafeteria or the 4-E Ranch House and then on to a movie at the Colony theater.
*We stood in line for what seemed like hours to enter Children's Wonderland at the Lucas County Recreation Center. It didn't matter that the displays were the same year-after-year--it was magical. You would cleverly end up in a refreshment area where I would always convince my parents to buy me a paintable wax sculpture of Santa Mickey Mouse (you watched as the machine molded the 3-dimensional statue--really cool)!
For those of you that listen to Rush Limbaugh, you might want to know he tried to fool you today. He did so by taking Sen. Tom Harkin's words out of context. Hopefully you all had the sense to check things out for yourselves before believing everything you heard.
Americans might be the most duped people in the world. December 1, 2014, was designated as "World AIDS Day." What a crock! The White House had a gigantic red ribbon (the HIV symbol) hanging outside of it. Malarkey!
World AIDS Day is just another manifestation of the liberal media/entertainers/politicians need to control what Americans should value. It's a disease that predominantly affects two of the groups upon which liberals rely for votes--gays and minorities. That's why AIDS is important--it always boils down to politics.
According to the Center for Disease Control, how many people in the U.S. are living with HIV infection? C'mon take a guess. Yep, 1.2 million. That's not even 1 percent of the U.S. population.
Would be to contact Ms. Bill Clinton, and have her send some folks from her "Bimbo eruption squad" to help Cosby tidy up his personal proclivities a bit.
Was reading through the Blade this morning and happened upon this story of a shooting in West Toledo.
Wondered if the victim's name seemed familiar to anyone else.
A paragraph in the article says that company's have moved to non-union states and other countries. Wouldn't it be easier to make Lucas County like the other states and countries than to bring in illeagal immigrants er I mean immigrants? Then maybe more residents, at least the ones left here, could start business's without government interferance.
That's righttttttt! Lois Lehrners' "30,000 lost forever" e-mails have magically re-appeard. That will be a result of the rest of the dimocrats party scurrying up the gangplank and heading for the door(think: rat scene from "Titannic") She'll be revisiting Congress. Sooner rather than later
Remember the hope and change that we all were going to realize when we elected a black man to be President? Remember how Joe Biden bragged that Obama was "clean and a nice looking guy"--and he was black? Remember how Obama was going to reverse the negative image the U.S had around the world--while being black?
The thing we will remember about the Obama Presidency is that when you elect someone who has never accomplished anything outside of politics--you end up with someone who can't handle the job.
Most Presidents have something besides their political careers to their credit:
Jimmy Carter was a peanut farmer
George W. Bush was managing partner of a MLB team
George Washington was a land surveyor
Richard Nixon was a Lieutenant Commander in the Navy
Ronald Reagan was an actor
...and Barack Obama was a community organizer (which is code for a person who gets poor people to the polls to vote for Democrats). Oh yes, and he taught part-time at a college. Honestly, if your daughter brought a guy home who had those credentials wouldn't you think "she'll be supporting this guy FOREVER"?
Obama Can Reform Dark Money With a Stroke of a Pen
Quote from article:
"President Barack Obama can issue an executive order today that requires government contractors to disclose their dark-money campaign contributions.
Why doesn’t he? And why don’t campaign-finance-reform organizations push for such a fix?
Yet Gruber joined the HHS payroll right after Obama took office, in March 2009. He was paid $392,600 to consult on ObamaCare. Some might call this kind of arrangement “corruption.”
It’s like an expert witness appearing in court to swear that BP never spilled any oil while working as BP’s $400,000-a-year publicist.
Gruber made 1.5 million
Washington Post confirms Jonathan Gruber was a consultant for Obamacare - read this Hot Air post to see their argument unravel - warning, to see the lie unraveled does make your blood pressure rise.
Professor Gruber, an architect of obimacare, has made at least three videos attesting to the fact that the Bill couldn't pass, without the stupidity of the American Voter! That must be how the rest of the politicians in the democrats' party see their constituents. Although some are pissed off about Grubers' accurate assessment, I'm glad to for once, to see a democrat elite telling the truth.
With the news tonight that two people were shot in the Kroger parking lot, it brings back fond memories of the experience I had in that exact spot. I posted the article below on Swampbubbles in July describing the fine people I observed. DTOM commented then that he knew the names of the people I saw--Pimp George, Susie the panhandler, and Trick Willy the homeless guy. I shudder to think that any of these citizens were involved in tonight's shootings.
I try to stay west of Talmadge Road as much as possible. But a family member was in town and from her days in Toledo, she was familiar with the layout of the Kroger store on Monroe and Secor. So I took her over and waited in the car, Wow--talk about your sociological experience!
First, I see this interesting fellow in a pimped-out Mercedes (gold trim, fancy rims) pull up to a spot in the far reaches of the lot. Sure enough--a woman who looked like she would be more at home on a section of Monroe Street in the heart of downtown--gets out of her car. The Mercedes dude, wearing his rust-colored zoot suit (with matching shoes), gets out of his car. They embrace, she gets into his car--and off they go into the night. I felt the need to immerse myself in a vat of antibacterial soap.
