I want to commend Chris Myers for still providing a venue for people to express themselves in North West Ohio. However, this site which I have belonged to since forever has become a beacon for the not so sane members of this website. I have never been the most popular person, writer, commenter etc. on this site but I have enjoyed visiting here to see what is going on in Toledo and all points north. I now am a FaceBook junkie but stop here every once in a while.
After billions of dollars in political advertising, we ended up on November 7 in the same situation we were in on November 6--Obama as president, the Democrats in charge of the Senate, and the Republicans in charge of the House.
Here's the reality--there is no way that the Democrats won't get a large majority of the Black vote in presidential elections. They have Blacks snookered into thinking that Republicans would bring back slavery, stop all welfare, etc. The Black community's either unwillingness or inablity to see through this isn't going to change.
Conservatives/Republicans/Tea Party Members/Libertarians need to focus on what they can control. Here are a few things we can control:
1.Purchasing non-union products and services. Unions have brought/bought us 4 more years of Obama. Everytime you patronize a unionized company, you're putting money into the campaign coffers of liberal politicians. Just by doing a little research, you can buy products and services from non-union companies.
If you buy a new car, buy a non-UAW auto. You can buy an American-made Honda or Toyota. They put non-union Americans to work.
This Christmas, use FedEx instead of unionized UPS to send your packages. Send cards by email instead of the public union U.S. Postal Service.
Stop shopping at unionized Krogers and go to Andersons or Sautter's.
(If you have other non-union shopping ideas, please respond in the "Comment" section of this blog.)
Have you ever seen two black people pass in a hallway and give each other a nod? I asked a black co-worker about this phenomenon and he told me I wouldn't understand because it's a "black thing." So, in other words, skin color is the trump card for determining how you act toward someone.
Well, Obama would not have been re-elected had he not been black. Someone with such a pathetic record would have lost in a landslide had he been white. But, Obama knew that all he had to do was put out an APB to blacks and they would show up in large numbers (it also helps to provide pizza and donuts to keep people waiting in line as Obama's lackeys did in Dade County Florida). They vote for Obama because he's black.
A new twist on the cover up.. read this,
apparently there may be more to the story.
The continued lies, cover up and totally clueless explanation leaves everything open to possibility. Throw in the connection of gun running to Syrian rebels via Turkey , Iranian elite military forces as the attackers and Russian deployment of missile defense systems in Syria to thwart possible no fly zones and you have a major international incident.
You may recall the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1988 (WARN). That’s the Act that requires employers with 100 or more employees to provide 60 days notification in advance of plant closings or mass layoffs.
Each state has its own website where it posts the names of companies that have complied with the WARN Act indicating that they intend on closing a plant or laying off large numbers of employees (I supply the link to the Ohio WARN website at the end of this article).
In reviewing the companies who submitted WARN notifications to the government, it’s interesting to note that there was no significant difference between union and non-union companies—they both were affected by massive layoffs and plant closings.
Also, the site shows that the M&M Restaurant Supply business in Toledo will be permanently closing on December 9, 2012. This will affect 105 employees—many of whom are Teamsters (what does Kaptur have to say about that).
As we get closer to Election day more and more importance is being put onto the electoral college maps.
Right now it depends who you talk to as to which are swing states and which are not.
If we look at the Real Clear Politics averages of the states we see of the most cited swing states Romney leads in three: Florida, Virginia, every so slightly in Colorado.
So imagine if the following scenario took place.
A close election. Romney wins the above three but also manages to squeak out wins in Nevada and Iowa.
Obama continued on his college campus tour today speaking at BGSU. It's a safe crowd for a liberal ("If you're 20 and not liberal, you have no heart. If you're 40 and not conservative, you have no brain." Winston Churchill). One of the mantras he espouses to the college kids is that he is going to find a way to pay off their student loans.
So Obama is proposing that you and I will be paying not once, not twice, but three times toward a student's college education. How's that?
First, if you pay taxes in Ohio, you are already subsidizing the students who attend a state-funded school (e.g. UT, BGSU, OSU, etc.). Let's review how that money is being used to operate a university by looking at the salaries of some UT administrators:
Jeffrey Gold, Chancellor $462,457
Lloyd Jacobs, President $392,700
Scott Scarborough, Provost $389,000
Larry Burns, Vice President for External Affairs $212,395
Chuck Lehnert, Vice President of Administration $225,000
David Dabney, Chief Financial Officer $215,540
Black clergy from churches across the country are telling their church members to stay home on election day. They believe that neither presidential candidate is worthy of their vote because Romney is a Mormon and Obama supports gay marriage.
This could be much more harmful to Obama because he has to rely on a large turnout of black voters in order to win.
In 2008, California had Proposition 8 on the ballot, which made gay marriage unconstitutional. It passed in large part due to the high black voter turnout because of the presidential election. Blacks have historically been anti-gay marriage.
Obama's flip flop on supporting gay marriage was to satisfy his leftwing base--totally disregarding the black vote (assuming he had it anyway).
I didn't see Michelle last night--I always fold towels on Tuesdays.
Anyway, did Michelle happen to talk about...
Have you ever used the term "Hold down the fort"? Well, if you have, you are a racist SOB! That's the message from John Robinson, the U.S. State Department's Chief Diversity Officer (yes, you read that correctly).
Robinson has compiled a list of "potentially offensive" terms that State Department employees should avoid.
Feeling inferior because you don't have as many Twitter followers as your friends and family? No need to despair--do like Obama and buy yourself some followers!
Who knew that buying Twitter "followers" was even an option. With a simple Google search, I found sites that would sell me followers for as little 1 cent each. Heck, for a mere $100, I could buy 10,000 followers. I'm feeling more confident already!
As reported in several publications including the New York Times, Fake Follower Check is a new software tool that can determine how many fake followers exist for a particular Twitter account. The software found that 70% of Obama's 18.8 million Twitter followers are fake! So much for the "most transparent administration in history."
Who knew that after all of his Marxist, class warfare rhetoric regarding Mitt Romney's experience in the private sector...
“When some people question why I would challenge his Bain record, the point I’ve made there in the past is, if you’re a head of a large private-equity firm or hedge fund, your job is to make money….That’s part of the American way. That’s part of the system. But that doesn’t necessarily make you qualified to think about the economy as a whole, because as president, my job is to think about the workers. My job is to think about communities, where jobs have been outsourced.”
That deep in his hypocritical heart, President Obama secretly had a crush on the boys at Bain Capital.
Continued after the fold.
Leadership rules your life.
In the recent news you have a chance to bear witness to several people in politics and who knows, perhaps your personal life, try to win you over with what they would like you to think a leader would be. They offer varying opinions on what would be best for you and our country while gaining them the most, with the messages they send you in speeches and sometimes lectures. But is what they are telling you necessarily good leadership qualities or rather are their actions and words truly what we the people need in a leader.
