No New discussion or comments - This religion & racial hating brush I've been painted with blows me away.

I've been told that some people seem to think I have attacked their faith. I don't believe I attacked people's faith - I took issue with, questioned, and challenged those points they made - but I have never attacked their faith or religion.

Voters Ignored Again


Once again the voters voice has been ignored and trampled on. The Supreme Court has overturned the gay marriage ban, even though the citizens made clear they wanted it banned. Yet, another example of unconstitutional legislation from the bench. Its clear, when immorality has an agenda....the will of the majority means nothing.

i noticed in the city paper article http://www.toledocitypaper.com/view_article.php?id=1730 the stain said he graduated in 1988...but when he was pulled over and charged with disorderly conduct...he refused to give ID because he said a ut police officer killed a student while he was at school at ut...that tragedy occurred in 1992...so either he was fibbing to the city paper...or to the police offi

Vatican says aliens could exist; Aliens are my brother

Writing in the Vatican newspaper, the astronomer, Father Gabriel Funes, said intelligent beings created by God could exist in outer space.

Father Funes, director of the Vatican Observatory near Rome, is a respected scientist who collaborates with universities around the world.

The search for forms of extraterrestrial life, he says, does not contradict belief in God.

40 Yards of Pipe for 3000 Jobs? Hardly.

Intermodal freight transportation is exploding around the country and Northwest Ohio is well-placed and well-equipped to handle cargo for the tri-state area. However, we need to be smart about how we encourage development around resources like Toledo Express. Governmental agencies like the Port Authority are working to entice logistics companies into building intermodal terminals at TOL, but they also must determine which development prospects are practical and which proposals will only drain the area's limited infrastructure improvement budget. After reviewing Brian McMahon's proposal, I feel it qualifies as the latter for the following reasons.

Republcians make it harder to vote...again.

First Republicans gave us Ohio, voter ID law. It required a registered voter to produce any one of a number of IDs or utility bills in order to vote.

But that wasn’t good enough for Republicans, it just didn’t make voting hard enough. So in Indiana you must have a registered voter must have a photo ID in order to vote.
