Young Republicans support lower taxes, unlike Jon Stainbrook and the "New Party"

If this is an example of the "New Party", then we are in for only more disappointment. It sounds very Rinoish. Thank goodness that the Young Republicans (I am Vice President) are standing up for lower taxes and good government. If you did not hear Jon this morning on Fred's show you should.
Young Republicans oppose Republican Party Levy Endorsement

Knifed by the Blade

I don't have a high regard for either popular party -Dem or Repub-, but I have to say that The Blade is doing its usual dirty work regarding Joe The Plumber. The paper has done another "in depth" piece to politically assassinate someone it doesn't agree with. This behavior is all too common with JRB, publisher of the Toledo Blade. He'll kill you if he doesn't like you.

Charter Schools

A poster on another local blog, GlassCity Jungle, made some ignorant remarks about charter school accountability. I won't post his stuff here but did want to point out :

This report is the one that errantly states that one breath of second hand smoke increases a person's blood pressure and starts hardening cardiac arteries.

1. (economy.pdf) is the one that the Ohio Chamber has a problem with in the previous post and talks about Sears' response on workforce development.

Carty has his list of life on Mars, how about we create our own list?

If you did not read Carty's response to the Toledo Free Press, you should. You get a sense of what the Martian land rovers see on Mars. Of course everything is fine and dandy if you read the 17 positives Carty wanted to highlight (is this the launch of his re-election and his 17 points of success?). So I thought, why don't we come up with our own list?
