Is Trump Going Independent ? I Say Yes.

It's interesting that Trump has decided to broadcast his own venue instead of participating in the next debate. In my opinion, this move will doom his campaign because this clearly shows what type of incompetent POTUS he would be. So I say, Mr. Trump, take your ball and go home. He must have heard me because that is exactly what he is doing.

Vicki Donovan-Lyle, Republican State Rep Candidate, Delinquent On Property Taxes

Vicki Donovan-Lyle, a Sylvania School Board Member, has apparently failed to pay her property taxes on her personal home at 4428 Tamworth Road in Sylvania, Ohio. In December 2015, Vicki Donovan-Lyle announced her candidacy for the Republican nomination to Ohio’s House District #47 to replace term-limited Representative Barbara Sears.

American Petroleum Institute spends millions in Toledo market

Tagged:  

Have you heard or seen that American Petroleum Institute commercial telling you their has to be a balance? API is spending millions in Northwest Ohio media to convince you that fracking is safe. They give an image of an industry that works for the American good. This is false and anyone who has seen what the power of Oil & Gas has done to Eastern Ohio would be shocked. The industry is under attack from landowners across the state and county. The greed supersedes the will of property owners rights. The last three months local media has enjoyed a bonanza in ad revenue from big Oil & Gas.

An Interesting possibility!

An election in which Donald ran against Bernie would be fascinating! Just think. On this Forum we would read one post after another, about why my old White man should be elected, instead of your old White man! Ha-Ha-Ha!

Bimbo Gate - The ballad of Donald and Sarah

It appears that Sarah Palin has endorsed Donald Trump. I am so pleased that she did. She helped destroy one Presidential Campaign, now she gets a chance to do it again. Could you imagine Sarah Palin in Donald Trump's Cabinet?

Forrester's on the River: Why it's damned stupid to open a restaurant there.

On 2016 Jan 22 Fri 10 am, the contents of "Forrester's on the River" restaurant will be auctioned off as a total liquidation to satisfy debt. The auctioneer Pamela Rose Auction Company has posted [1] that the sale will be "down to the walls" [2] but there might be contention about that, regarding installations like the wooden bars and ventilation system.

Another entitlement question

Aren't the two ladies who both allege "The Slickmeister", aka Bill Clinton, both raped and assaulted them, entitled to press charges? Yet, women who allege Cosby raped them, as far back as 25 years ago, are? Talk about a double standard!!! I'm sure, as are all sane and intelligent people, Hillary would pardon him on her first day in office if(GOD FORBID)she were elected.

Reparations, Taxes and other Issues

Tagged:  

I have a reparation question(s). Would a million dollar check be subject to Taxes-federal, state, local? And also with regards to unpaid civil judgements, unpaid criminal fines, rent for people currently in custody, and so on? At least, since the bill for slavery would then be paid in full, one would be well advised not to automatically vote no on this issue w/o ALL these questions being answered beforehand. It might well be the best money the Country ever spent on anything.

Equality In America

In 1887, ex-slaves began petitioning the federal government for pensions and compensation for the years they had labored without wages before abolition. When Congress ignored their thousands of petitions, they tried to sue for wage theft but were told they could not. At the very least, all African Americans should be eligible for reparations. Monies could come from corporations, from banks and insurance companies.

Yesterday's Article About Hickey

More evidence bubbling up on Hickey.

Much more to come. Slowly, but it's coming.

How's THIS For Entitlement?

Anyone care to guess how many MORE sex charges will be filed against that old, disgusting pervert who felt he was entitled to screw any girl he wanted, after doping them up? He was several times defined as the number one male role-model in the Country. It's the Big House for him! What is it with these liberal deviants, anyway. I hope the Donald will keep digging up the truth about ANOTHER male role model, currently trying to sneak back into the White House under Wifeys' dress. A blue dress, probably.

A Christmas Present for the World? Maybe.

The British controlled the entire Indian subcontinent for nearly 200 years. In 1948, The United Kingdom wanted to finally rid itself of the difficulties associated with governing an area both many times larger than the British Isles themselves, and overwhelmingly hostile to British control. They hoped that by partitioning the subcontinent, and creating separate areas governed separately mostly by those who followed the Hindu faith, and by those who followed Islam, there would be little sectarian violence. They were wrong!

Anyone here attend the big party last night in honor of the Hick?

Anyone here attend the the big party that some of the loyal Kool-aid drinkers gave for their
messiah Patrick "too familiar" Hickey" last night at Pat and Dandy's? It was a gala event.
Bumhower was there as well as assistant super Cherie Mourlam.The was a lot of hugging going on in between the tears of joy by his followers. They must of been congratulating him for beating the rap and making fools out of the BOE and the taxpayers. Mourlam, a Hick
