Our patriotic businesses

Next time you hear about young American soldiers dying overseas to protect our freedom, remember that for many corporate bastards that means the freedom to lay claim to another country as their headquarters in order to duck taxes. Remember that people like Mikey are defending businessmen who have no allegiance to this country and consider the U.S. only as a lucrative market. In the meantime, reconsider doing business at Walgreens and CVS.

Of course, first they have to breach the English Channel. I'm glad we have barriers such as the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and the North Pole.

Voter reality: Its all about the money

Pay cut for pay raises

Here's an example of individual action backing up words, something that I believe Mr. Independent and Fred would agree with. Be nice if it became a trend among the elite salaried types.

Ebola: The US diagnostic test is a lie

Ebola: The US diagnostic test is utterly unreliable. When researchers and doctors are talking about a germ-caused disease, everything depends on the accuracy of the diagnosis. That's where it all starts.

So here is a blockbuster.
The US diagnostic test for Ebola is utterly unreliable.
Using the test to claim a patient has Ebola or doesn't have Ebola is scientific fraud.
Therefore, any pronouncements made by the Centers for Disease Control, where all the US testing is done, are worthless.

This guy cracks me up

He wants to be Governor but for years was unwilling to follow the very laws of the state. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2014/08/04/Fitz_driver_lic... Liberal politicians, you gotta love 'em. http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2014/08/what_we_know_--_and_what...

Good job, Mr. President

I only wish that Obama had held a Rose Garden signing ceremony with leaders of both parties by his side.

Should The Blade Report Water Test Results?

A message from Amjad

You gotta love this guy. He calls the Israeli military response "indiscriminate bombing" and Hamas' terrorism campaigns "occasional flare-ups." I think he's due for another visit to his hometown in Pakistan, where the people are tolerant and cherish peace.

What was that about not impeaching Obama, again?

Iowa GOP Rep. Steve King reignited the debate Sunday about the Republican-led House considering impeachment proceedings for President Obama, just days after party leaders furiously tried to extinguish such talk.

King suggested on “Fox News Sunday” that the impeachment issue could be reconsidered if Obama again uses his executive powers to delay or defer deportation for illegal immigrants beyond those brought illegally to the United States in past years by their parents.

“I think then we have to start, sit down and take a look at that,” King said.

IMO, Water Scare Will Turn Out To Be A HOAX!

I hope all the test results will be CAREFULLY checked, and published so we can see for ourselves what is going--and NOT let some political hacks explain it for us! Specially the part where huge tax increases will be needed to keep Toledo healthy!

marcy can rest easy--her supporters aren't getting any smarter

There are only two possibilities that Marcy Kaptur will ever be voted out of Congress: 1. If a viable Cleveland-area minority runs against her in the primary or 2. If her constituents would get a clue. After reading the comments on local blogs (including some on this site) and social media, she won't have to worry about the second item happening.

The one constant over the last 30 years in the Toledo-area is Marcy Kaptur. She keeps pointing her finger at Republicans--blaming them for the condition of Lake Erie--and her followers are buying it hook, line, and sinker. The ignorance is overwhelming.

Marcy Kaptur is the ranking Democrat on the House of Representatives Energy and Water Subcommittee of the Appropriations Committee. She sits at the table where budgeting decisions are made concerning Federal spending on bodies of water. On her website she brags about her membership on this committee, which she deems "appropriate given that the Ninth District hugs the Lake Erie coastline from Cleveland to Toledo."

Kasich's illegal appointment to Director of Health

Defend this, conservatives!

On Friday afternoon Kasich released a statement saying he was going to appoint Rick Hodges as Director of the Ohio Department of Health. Hodges, a former lawmaker, currently leads the Ohio Turnpike Commission. Hodges will be replacing Dr. Ted Wymyslo… and that “Dr.” part is kind of important.

According to Ohio Revised Code 121.10:

The director of health shall be either:

(A) A physician holding the degree of doctor of medicine from a medical college approved by the state medical board who, before assuming his duties, has been licensed to practice medicine in the state and who has had experience in pursuing some phase of medical practice;

(B) An individual who has had significant experience in the public health profession.

The anti environment Gov Kasich meets with Toledo Mayor Collins over Toledo water crisis

Ohio Gov. John Kasich Signs Nation’s First Renewable Energy Freeze June 13, 2014
http://ecowatch.com/2014/06/13/ohio-gov-john-kasich-renewable-energy-fre...
Quote:
“Gov. Kasich promised Ohioans he would protect Ohio families, create Ohio jobs, and champion clean energy technologies. By signing this devastating bill, he has decided to ignore the health and economic interests of everyday Ohioans in favor of big corporations. We need Gov. Kasich to be strong on energy efficiency, renewable energy, and green jobs to move Ohio forward.”

Here's Your Immigration Bill---Now Shut Up.

Oops!!!

I believe the water "emergency" that Toledo has been going through today is a hoax being perpetrated by Mayor Collins and his henchmen to scare the people of Toledo into going along with massive water rate hikes to finance the upgrade of the city water treatment plant. The results of the tests of Toledo's water by outside agencies will not be announced until tomorrow. That will give Mayor Collins time to put the final touches on his PR spin of the story. I expect the phrase that will be heard most in Toledo tomorrow will be: "It was better to err on the side of caution".

is marcy kaptur senile?

Two things you don't want to face on a Saturday morning--a water "crisis" and a Marcy Kaptur interview.

So there was Marcy on television rambling on about how the Senate won't even consider the Lake Erie clean-up legislation that the House gives them. She was really disgusted with this and suggested that when the reporters get "other" Ohio politicians in front of the cameras that they ask them about this. One of two things just happened:

1. Marcy has somehow forgotten that her Party--the Democrats--own the Senate and that Harry Reid (another possible victim of senility) decides which legislation the Senate considers. So who was she so angry at--Sherrod Brown?

2. Or is it that Marcy knows that her loyal Northwest Ohio supporters are so stupid that she can act disgusted with the Senate and they'll just figure it's those damn Republicans. Whew!

WSPD's water crisis coverage better than in 2010 weekend tornado non coverage

Went to listen to the weekend WSPD programming and was shocked to hear Fred Lefebvre giving live coverage of the global warming Lake Erie toxic algae bloom. The water crisis is being covered by program director Scott Sands unlike in 2010 when a killer tornado tore through the Toledo area, on a weekend, while WSPD news staff enjoyed the weekend off. Tuning in for about five minutes Marcy Kaptur spoke live about the problems she is having getting funding to upgrade our crumbling infrastructure.
