There's a popular riddle that goes like this: A young boy and his father are in a car accident. The father dies at the scene. The boy is transported to the hospital and taken immediately into surgery, but the surgeon steps out of the operating room and says, "I can't operate on this boy--he's my son!" Who's the surgeon?
It's likely that in today's society more people would come up with the answer compared to 30 or more years ago. Of course, the surgeon is the boy's mother.
Just as this riddle requires thinking outside of the stereotypical box, Toledoans need to get a grip on the reality of Jeep leaving Toledo. Many of the arguments for why Jeep will/should stay in Toledo are gullible--at best.
Toledo has the skilled workers needed to produce Jeeps--Why would a state-of-the-art production facility making aluminum unibody Jeeps need production line workers?
Toledo is Jeep and Jeep is Toledo--Do people honestly think this means anything to Fiat?
Yesterday a bombshell was dropped on Toledo. Denny Schaffer 105.5 interview with Bruce Baumhower https://soundcloud.com/dsnorulesradio/the-denny-schaffer-show-bruce-baum... CEO Sergio Marchionne made the statement at the Paris car show that Fiat is making plans to make a new unibody independently suspended ALUMINUM bodied Wrangler. Now if that's not enough to scare the bejebus out of the four wheel drive market Sergio continued to say it may not be built in Toledo. HOLY SHIT!
Former ClearChannel Toledo radio boss Andy Stuart now Cumulus radio boss is bringing back the morning Breakfast Club. Beginning at 6 a.m. Monday, Mr. Schaffer will host a new, four-hour morning talk show on Cumulus Media’s WWWM-FM Star 105, along with former sidekicks Tricia Courtney Tischler and Suzie Moser. The only one missing is Fred Lefebvre who will be competing on the ClearChannel AM 1370. Looks like WSPD is the loser here!

Knock your wife out, get the union to back you up. http://www.bcsn.tv/news_article/show/420465
All of us posting on Swampbubbles have varying opinions and sometimes argue(!) But here's something we might all be able to agree upon and get behind.
There's a little boy in Wisconsin (Beckett Roerdink) who was diagnosed with incurable cancer who will be celebrating his 4th birthday on September 17. He loves to get mail, so his Mom said it would be great if he could just get a bunch of cards in the mail. Even though your card might not arrive exactly on his birthday, please consider sending this boy a card. His address is below and a link to an article can be accessed by clicking on "Read More." Thanks!

COLUMBUS, Ohio—A statewide teachers' union will pay almost $92,000 to more than 2,800 Ohio teachers to resolve claims that union fees were illegally used for political work.
The payment, part of a settlement approved this week by a federal judge, comes after some teachers sued the Ohio Education Association and 11 affiliates contesting "fair-share" fees they had to pay between 2009 and 2013.
... or at least that's what they tell me in their latest e mail. See besides daily talking points from Rove, Koch brothers, and Americans for Prosperity I also get daily e mails from MoveOn and Move To Amend which I guess makes me part of their groups also since I signed up for them just like Children Of Liberty.
But I digress. Here's what the latest e mail had to say in part- "Since September 2009 when we formed Move to Amend, on the eve of the infamous Supreme Court decision your support has grown this movement by leaps and bounds:
Like most Republicans, Todd Grayson doesn't know when to shut his mouth (or shut off his computer and smartphone) when it comes to things like domestic violence and womens' rights.

Finally a victory for the hard working men and women of Michigan and possibly other states. http://www.freep.com/article/20140904/NEWS06/309040105/teachers-michigan...
Members of the Michigan Education Association should be able to resign from the union at any time, and not just during the month of August, an administrative law judge ruled this week.
I want to leave you all with the most important truth you will ever hear in your life, it will save your soul. if you never remember anything else in your life, remember this,.

Let me get this right, Dems wanted voting districts to include a certain number of blacks, white, hispanics, seniors, etc etc to make voting fair. Now there's a district that elects a Black rep each election and is now even bigger than before with more Blacks and they are screaming. Liberals make me laugh http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/09/01/supreme-court-red...
....by the color of their skin, but by their character. It's a total breakdown of parents and coaches when kids playing a sport that emphasises team work end up in a bench clearing brawl. They learn this from major league ballplayers, hockey players, and bowlers who exhibit the same behavior regularly.

The Occupy Wall Street movement, which blazed brightly two years ago amid a sea of arrests, vandalism and attacks against the wealthy, is coming back in the form of an online TV channel.
Occupy Television, in conjunction with FilmOn Networks, the National Convention PBC and a new union of the groups Occupy Television, ArticleV.org, and the National General Assembly, vows to bring the group's mission to the masses.
Back around 1970, a kid I went to school with, broke into Pier One, in Sylvania. He was shot in the back fleeing the scene, I believe, by a Sylvania cop. He was lucky, he lived. Back then, Sylvania was mainly White, as were the two PDs. Let's face it, I grew up in that area, and although most cops there were OK, there were a couple who fucked with people a lot. A police department is a perfect place for bullies to gravitate to. So, how many White People have been seriously fucked with, by White Cops?
