A new song honors the memory of two young African-American men who were gunned down by other African-American young me. Don't know if this got covered by the Journal, maybe Bob can tell us.. http://soundcloud.com/user892188687/rip-fred-tae-no-lies
Get TPP Off the Fast Track
Quote from article:
Unionistas protested at the site of the Detroit International Auto Show once again showing a complete lack of understanding of the real world and how it operates. Here's an article from the Detroit News including comments by some not so bright local people. http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20140112/AUTO04/301100119/Protesters-show-frustration-automakers-ahead-Detroit-show?odyssey=tab|topnews|text|FRONTPAGE Some of the signs were reminiscent of this one
I recently read Carole King's autobiography. Since King (who admits to changing her name from "Klein" to hide the fact that she is Jewish) has performed at many fund-raising events for liberal politicians, I knew in advance of reading the book that I didn't share her political beliefs. In the book, she is careful not to offend those of us who wouldn't agree with her statement that Gary Hart would have made a great president!
Apparently without realizing it, King's recollections in the book personify the conflicting beliefs of liberals. For example, although she expresses lots of feminist beliefs about things like "glass ceilings," upon his death, she uses glowing terms to describe her husband who had physically abused her for years. What?!
One of my favorite "liberals are clueless" parts of the book is King's description of moving to Idaho to get away from L.A. She talks about how it was a wonderful communal experience (more hippie/liberal code words) that gave her the opportunity to become "one" with nature and the lovable Idahoans. Well, it was great until...."
And this teaches exactly what? Just another of the many reasons to dismantle the DOE.

To Catch a Trader
Coming January 7, 2014
WGTE 30 10:00 PM
FRONTLINE correspondent Martin Smith goes inside the government’s ongoing, seven-year crackdown on insider trading, drawing on exclusively-obtained video of hedge fund titan Steven A. Cohen, incriminating FBI wiretaps of other traders, and interviews with both Wall Street and Justice Department insiders.
How was your last 17-day vacation? Or maybe, when was your last 17-day vacation? Or how about, have you ever had a 17-day vacation?
If your answer to the last question is “No,” then you need to aspire to becoming the President of the United States. Yep, President Obama just came back from a 17-day vacation with his family in Hawaii. It’s difficult to decide whether this is more exasperating because most Americans are struggling to parcel out their incomes to satisfy living expense obligations or that Obama is so arrogant that he doesn’t care about the negative perception of a bureaucrat imposing his tax and spend will on the “little people” while living the high life in paradise. What a schmuck (yes, I said it)!
According to U.S.A. Today, here’s the cost of a 17-day Hawaiian vacation for a family of four (just the necessities--not the golfing, sightseeing, etc.):
$596 per day for food and lodging (x 17 = $10,132)
$3000 for round trip airfare
$900 for a rental car
NAFTA at 20: Lori Wallach on U.S. Job Losses, Record Income Inequality, Mass Displacement in Mexico
Just saw the Wolf of Wall Street http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iszwuX1AK6A and though it was billed as some kind of comedy but it really is an indictment of our financial system. The movie is based on the true story of a convicted stock market swindler named Jordan Belfort. This story is what underfunded regulatory agencies deal with and how the investor gets bilked while the criminal financial brokers continue to long win before they're caught (if ever). Recently Barron's weekly did a piece on Mr. Belfort. Turns out Jordan served 28 months of a 42 month sentence from his 1999 conviction.

So the Lucas County Democrat Party is endorsing Matt Cherry for the City Council spot vacated by incoming mayor Michael Collins. Cherry is a business representative for the Sheet Metal Workers Local 33. You remember that stellar organization--don't you?
That's the group whose members were caught stealing Romney campaign signs from private property and businesses in Lucas and Wood Counties. One can't say that these lawbreakers weren't prepared. When the Perrysburg police caught them, along with the stolen goods they found drills and other tools they used to steal 4 feet by 8 feet signs.
Two of the four men arrested held administrative positions in Local 33. Corey Beaubien is the Marketing Representative (ironic) and Chris Monaghan is a fellow business representative of Cherry. Not only does Monaghan remain in his position, it appears that Beaubien was promoted to his position after his arrest!
The local paper says the Dems are getting together to pick the person to replace Collins in District 2 http://www.toledoblade.com/Politics/2013/12/30/Dems-to-meet-to-make-endo... But they are having trouble finding Clark Felgner, I don't understand why https://www.facebook.com/clark.felgner?fref=ts and then of course there's this http://www.toledoblade.com/Daily-Log/2011/10/12/Daily-Log-10-12.html maybe they can't find him because he sold his house in 2012
I know this is a little late, but I hope everyone here had a merry Christmas and I wish you all a happy new year.

http://www.firstcoastnews.com/news/article/339731/3/Massive-fight-erupts... I like Kevin Hart as a stand up comedian, but I'm not sure his movies are going to do very well if this happens every time.
From the department of who gives a crap any more comes this from our friendly local Lucas County Board of Elections
It was supposed to be an open and shut case of approving what had always been done in the past. A half day off with pay for Christmas and New Years for all the Board Employees.
Not so simple when you're a Scrooge in Charge of the local Republi-can'ts.
I'm almost sorry I missed the drama, but then again it's Christmas week!
