Amanda Clark had survived. It was a miracle! She had been using her cell phone while driving a large vehicle. Amanda ran a stop sign. She was broadsided by another vehicle. Her vehicle rolled over about 3 times and ended up on its top. Amanda survived with only minor injuries. She was a graduating senior in high school. She claimed that she knew how lucky she had been to survive. She swore that no message would ever be that important to her again.
I love local radio. I've always resisted subscribing to services like SiriusXM because I like live local radio--regardless of if I'm home or away.
Lately, I just can't stand listening to the local morning and afternoon shows on WSPD. It reminds me of CKLW's Saturday afternoon garage sale program where people call in and say things like, "I've got a beautiful ceramic Dalmatian that I'll sell for $37."
A lot of people are speculating on the presidential primaries and the eventual nominees from the Republican and Democratic Parties. But what if a third person entered the race in Presidential General Election? Remember Ross Perot?
The United States presidential election of 1992 was the 52nd quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 3, 1992. There were three major candidates: Incumbent Republican President George H. W. Bush; Democratic Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton, and independent Texas businessman Ross Perot.
As you may recall, Russia took its good old time to get directly involved in Syria. Even though Russia had been a forever backer of the Assad regime, Russia seemed reluctant to take decisive action. Apparently, after years of assessment, Russia decided that ISIS/ISIL or Daesh, whatever is your choice of what to call them, amounts to a much greater evil than is the Assad regime in Syria. Apparently also, Russia assessed the moderate opposition to both Daesh and Assad to be unreliable, disunited, and too weak to be effective.
According to the latest polls, the best candidate for the Republicans to nominate out of the "Final Three" is John Kasich. It's not even close. Those who read here regularly know that I do NOT like John Kasich AT ALL! I regularly call him Governor Sick, but the numbers are fairly consistent throughout February and March.
When running against Hillary, Kasich is a clear leader in all recent polls: http://www.electionprojection.com/latest-polls/national-presidential-pol...

According to dirtyenergymoney.com since 1999:
Time for your endorsements - the major players had their say. You have your say.
A citizen emailed me this on Sunday - apparently Vicki has yet to file normal campaign finance reports. (Disclosure - I am not a fan of Vicki and will not be voting for her today nor ever again.)
As you are aware I had filed a complaint against Kevin Haddad regarding misinformation on his campaign signs.
Vicki Donovan-Lyle appears to be incompetent in various aspects of political life in addition to her inexcusable failure to pay property tax on more than one occasion. I submitted a complaint regarding irregularities in her filings with the Election Commission.

Tonight could be the first really major knockout blow in both primaries.
We're finally getting into winner-take-all states with a huge ammount of delegates.
Normally this is done by Super Tuesday but on both sides it's been just close enough to keep this interesting.
Michigan and Florida are the big ones. They hold a lot of delegates. Trump leads in both as does Hillary.
For the Democrats those two states make up almost 350 delegates or 14% needed. For the GOP they make up 160 delegates almost 13%.
The Republican Party once championed preserving the Union and the Civil War solidified that effort. Since Lincolns death some of the most evil people have arisen that worked to destroy good American values. Trump is demonstrating almost identical tactics and strategies the Nazis Party in Germany instituted in the Twentieth Century. Hitler used a democracy to gain power and once he did the world turned upside down. Take a look at the quality of candidates the GOP has running for POTUS. One of them might make a decent POTUS. The others don't come close.
I listened to part of his speech. The Donald -- of all people -- decried the deep divisions in our country, after he has spent the entire campaign, since he entered the fray, ripping various ethnic and/or racial groups in our society.
I am as shocked as the rest of you on how Donald Trump got to the point he is currently at because I was one of the people thinking he would implode at any time. But the personality he displays and the excusing of his bad behavior has made me uncomfortable. Trump's rise and character traits have some eerie parallels with former Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner.
I am scratching my head about how he got this way, but the similarities between Donald and Carty that are too close for my comfort and I hope that other people see it too.
Spectra (owners of NEXUS pipeline) Constitution Pipeline in PA
To protect corporate interests of Williams LLC, our tax dollars at work to supply security by US Marshals. The message is don't get in the way of a pipeline pushed through by eminent domain and no signature from the landowners. B Nilson - pix — Bob Nilsson.
Tom Troy covers Kevin Haddad's sign debacle where either he forgot to cover up the "re" or it fell off or was pulled off. Tip to any candidate - don't reuse your sign unless you permanently alter them, because it is easy for the sticker to fall off. Kevin has used his signs multiple times and his "Working for you" assumes that he is already "working" therefore, it is not unreasonable for people to look at your sign with suspicion.
The Toledo Blade is reporting the names of the two teens who are now charged with forcing a developmental child to lick a push pop dipped in a urinal then punching and pushing the kids. Bullying is a common thing in schools, and many are affected by it, but what is so interesting is how much these kids are taught it is wrong during the school year so what makes matters worse is that these kids did it anyway.
Here is a link to an interview from this morning. http://www.businessinsider.com/cnn-anchor-jake-tapper-donald-trump-david...
David Duke publicly endorsed The Donald for POTUS. Duke stated that, "voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage [whiteness?]."
Anyone watch? What a bunch of Jack off's. This is the best entertainment on TV. LOL
Here's a link to an article showing how one young girl was convinced to go to the Middle East with a radicalized young man. https://www.yahoo.com/news/im-going-die-swedish-girl-tells-life-under-04... In short, she was so young, she had no idea what she was getting into. I guess she was "in love."
This girl was SO YOUNG. She was only 15! Why was she so free to travel without some parental involvement? Why didn't any authorities stop what amounts to kidnapping and statutory rape? And, shouldn't this story be shared with teenagers throughout the "West?"
