Corporate cash does the talking

President Obama and the government were called socialist for passing a weak health-care bill. Now that BP's oil spill has reached epic proportions, hypocrites ask: Where's the government?

Follow the money. Walk down K Street in Washington, where corporate lobbyists "reflect" the will of America.

Are we on the road to Socialism?

Who is the moron for the Wilson story?

NEWS: Brian Wilson states he's out at WSPD (gives two week notice on air June 1st)

First it was the swamp gas now we hear Brian Wilson moves to another position (his words) out of town (announced on the morning show). After five years at WSPD Brian Wilson hopefully moves on relieving Toledo of the controversial extreme right wing talk show host. Hopes for Toledo that WSPD finds its roots as a news talk station, fair and balanced, and not a partisan wing of the republican party.

Strickland governs frugally
A recent headline in The Blade read: "Jobless rate soars to highest since 1983." The Blade's editorial followed, challenging Gov. Ted Strickland to create jobs or beware of his re-election.

The Blade's editorial writer should be smarter than that. And fairer than that.

If George Bush and Barack Obama, with all their clout, can't create private sector jobs, how can a governor be expected to do so?

The Toledo Blade: Update U.S. trade policies

Update U.S. trade policies
Full story at:
As a media industry observer, I read your Sunday story "Solid future for Toledo area Chrysler plants" with great interest. Nothing would make me happier than the prospect of the Jeep plants running at full capacity to meet demand for worldwide export. Unfortunately, not one of the five experts quoted mentioned the largest barrier to such a rosy future: the high tariffs and taxation applied to U.S.-made goods in foreign markets.

Poverty in America

I sent the following E-mail to Fred at WSPD.
"Magna Toledo expansion: The jobs will pay an average of $13.46 an hour for assembly workers and $19.46 an hour for skilled-trades workers, city officials said.
WOW! How many families will be able to support their families on that wage? Those jobs will pay no taxes to support your Toledo government."

No jobs= No recovery

Get a bat and turn the music up. Then cut up your credit cards and send them back from where they came with a big GFY message....and pull your money out of the big boys and put it in the local community bank...if you can find one. I love this guy. Lots of F-bombs so be forewarned.

Toledo Blade Letter-to-the-Editor: Sweep Out Current Y Leadership

Sweep out current Y leadership
In 1959, a country schoolboy's family moved to Toledo's Old West End. There were no creeks and woodlots for youthful rambles, but there was a downtown YMCA and a wonderful huge library. That "Y" was my haven for swimming, wrestling, and Saturday "day" programs that included serial movies. The cost was nominal enough that a kid's family could afford the dollar or so.
