$1000 a pill? (FDA allows gouging of American health consumers)

Should We Petition TT To Take AC Back?

the disaster that is obamacare hits home

Okay—I’m bragging here. I’ve never been the type to have the latest electronics, Nike shoes, or cool sunglasses, but I’m proud to announce that I have joined the “in crowd” of U.S. citizens who have been negatively affected by Obamacare (eat your hearts out)!

Yep, I’m one of those people who Democrat Harry Reid described as “lying” about how Obamacare has impacted my life. Here’s my situation:

I received a letter from my health insurance company stating that “While updating your account in order to comply with the Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare”) we received inaccurate information from the Department of Health and Human Services. As a result, you were overcharged for 2014 medical procedures by $314.64. We are diligently working to 1) correct these inaccuracies and 2) refund your money. You should receive your refund check by May 1, 2014.” I suppose to prove that my health insurance company really wasn’t to blame, they included a copy of the document they received from HHS explaining the mistake.

So due to incompetent Obamacare, I have paid $300+ out of my pocket that I should not have—and it will take two months to receive a refund.

The Obama Eligibility Case & A Few Good Judges

In today's legal world, where few judges have the courage to do what needs to be done to restore the nation to justice, there comes a few rays of light. As someone who has fought the legal and government establishment for decades (see my autobiography, "Whores: Why and How I Came to Fight the Establishment"), many incorrectly see me as cynical and jaded when it comes to our public servants.

Feinstein Touts 45 Year Old Law to Ban Semi-Automatic Rifle Imports

California Senator Dianne Feinstein (D) is at it again. She's got America's gun in her sights. After a devastating blow from the pro-Second Amendment population in America against her major gun grab last year, Feinstein has determined to dig a little deeper. In fact, a letter that she has been circulating in Washington that cites a 45 year old law, which basically allows certain guns to be stopped from import, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives interpretation of "sporting purposes."

The Real Costs of Obamacare More than Double Benefits

Yesterday, it was reported that Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) claimed Obamacare, aka the Affordable Care Act, was working, and they had the numbers to back it up even though those numbers were not revealed. So far, there have been no reliable, verifiable, or accurate numbers printed in any new media. What are the numbers on Obamacare?

Senate Democrats Vote To Repeal Obamacare Tax.

WASHINGTON -- It isn't every day that more than half the Democrats in the Senate vote to repeal part of President Barack Obama's health care law.

But that's what happened Thursday night when the Senate voted 79-20 to repeal a 2.3 percent sales tax on medical devices such as catheters, pacemakers and MRI machines, which was intended to help to finance coverage for the uninsured that starts next year.

Democrats continue freakout over Obamacare...

Amid growing outrage over Healthcare.gov’s botched rollout, two Democratic senators renewed calls to delay Affordable Care Act deadlines.

Appearing on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) urged the Obama administration to delay the individual mandate for one year. Last week, Manchin announced he was crafting a bill that would do just that. Currently, uninsured Americans have until March 31st to get coverage before facing a financial penalty.

THE BLADE, THE UT BOARD OF TRUSTEES, AND PRESIDENT JACOBS WEAVE A TANGLED WEB

The University of Toledo President Lloyd Jacobs has the best bosses in the world! The members of the UT Board of Trustees (who are named later in this post) must be either clueless about and/or complicit with the failed tenure of Jacobs. What other supervisors would respond to the questionable actions of an employee for whom they are responsible by rewarding him with a year of well-paid employment instead of a pink slip? The UT Board—that’s who.

After the recent UT scandal involving Rick Stansley that resulted in representatives from the Ohio Attorney General’s office meeting with the UT Board, it wasn’t surprising that Jacobs announced his departure—but who would have guessed his exit wouldn’t be until 2015? How does a man who was at the helm of an institution that aided Stansley with sheltering his income from being garnished because of $1 million in back taxes not get the axe—like now?

Particularly interesting is that two of the Board members are officials in the banking industry. If anyone should be concerned with the importance of ethics and laws, one would think it would be these people.

Oftentimes, the public outcry over situations like the Stansley case is fueled by local media coverage. One thing that Jacobs has going for him is that the president and general manager of The Blade, Joe Zerbey, is the chairman of the UT Board. Jacobs catches all the breaks!

Georgia Halts More Gun Control with Anti-Gunner HB60

Fred DeRuvo March 24, 2014

"When I lived in California (for 25-years), it became increasingly difficult to watch the state legislature chip away at the 2nd Amendment (along with other amendments). Each county in California had its own rules as far as granting concealed weapons permits (CCW). In our county (one of the most conservative in the entire state), it was a “may issue,” which simply meant that when a person applied for a concealed weapons permit, the sheriff may or may not issue a permit to you."

Toledo Move-to-Amend March 30th Meeting

Fredo LaFever to the rescue?

Has anyone heard if Fredo Lafever talked about or said on his radio show that he went over to his good friends the Steinfurth home to offer his support for TJ ,who according to Fredo was a wonderful young man, for getting arrested for beating the shit out of his girlfriend?
Has Mr. Lafever mentioned this incident on his show if anyone hear still listens too it?
I'm sure this is all just a big misunderstanding.

Stainbrook stacks up with Noe, Perz and Reichert: He gets rated the worst for donations to the party

Jon marketed himself as someone who would revolutionize the Republican Party in Lucas County, but Bill Delany reviewed the data and found out he comes in last for donations-in-kind. I am sure that is not the only stat that Jon comes in last if he is compared to previous chairs.
============
Lucas County GOP in-kind contributions drops to $0.00 under Jon Stainbrooks leadership!

The Republican Party relies on many sources of revenue, materials, and services in order to operate efficiently. To support the party, businesses and individuals often provide services or materials that directly benefit the Party, yet no money changes hands. These types of donations are referred to as an “In Kind” donation and fill a major portion of the party's budgeting and operating needs.

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

Dear "Fiscally Conservative" "Republicans" on SB: Please tell me how the taxpayer dollars spent by the House GOP in pursuit of their futile goal have NOT been wasted and are in fact completely justified.
