Increased unemployment and business exodus plagues state

Columbus—With Ohio’s unemployment at 10.9 percent, Governor Strickland and House Democrats have had more than a year to demonstrate how little their majority has accomplished.

Are You Sssssssssssure Conservatism's Dead?

Not only did Conservatives rout all major, as well as minor out of state elections, conservatism won in Toledo. Even liberal powerbroker Marcy couldn't get super-liberal Wilkowski a win, over a much more conservative Mike Bell. This is of course an after effect of a President whose Hope and Change message, has become a Whine and Moan message. And with that, there goes what little support HE has in Congress! All I can say is---HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Last Toledo mayoral candidate debate held

So who tuned in?
http://www.toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20090912/NEWS09/90...

For me, this last one really separated the men from the boy and the wacko.

Interestingly to me, the three solid candidates that came out were a Democrat, a Republican and an Independent. Sadly, one also-ran admitted he has no future plans in place should he not be elected, and that's too bad, because I dont think it'll happen.

The forum, to be aired on WGTE-TV, Channel 30, was the last major forum before Tuesday's primary contest in which the two top finishers will move on to the Nov. 3 election. Just two, which is a shame, because a run between Wilkie, Moody and Collins would be an interesting race to watch.

Then of course for comedy relief was the boy and the idiot. Im sure the other candidates appreciated Ben and Opal being on the dias, as while they spouted their pap, it gave the viable contestants an extra moment to prepare their thoughts.

All in all, it was a good watch.

Racist extremist Jones is history!

WASHINGTON - Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green), in conjunction
with The Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus today urged U.S. Department of
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to withdraw the notice of
proposed revocation of treatment relating to the admissibility of
certain knives with spring assisted opening mechanisms by the Office of

The proposed regulation could have severe implications on all knives,
not just assisted-opening knives, and would designate these knives as

open letter to our nation's leadership:

I got this in an email yesterday. It was very similar to the last post that American Heartland entered on the NPR thread, so I thought it might make an interesting post.
