You all going to the Kaptur fundraiser on Wednesday? It's a little out of my budget constraints as you can see here http://politicalpartytime.org/party/23509/#invite I find it interesting that the Silverberg Associates throwing the party is run by Carl Silverberg a former investment banker. Correct me if I'm wrong, wouldn't that make him Wall Street instead of Main Street?
According to Fox Toledo a Union pulled George Sarantou's support given an argument with Jon Stainbrook. While the details are fuzzy, it is said that Jon is involved.

The Rev. John C. Jones, Pres. of the Greater Toledo Urban League, will be my guest on Monday to talk about Toledo Public Schools. The GTUL has called for a complete audit of the school system and it's finances. Other groups have joined in this call and they are gettting some push back already from the board.
We'll also talk about the TPS report card, and a new report that many newly built schools are having problems already with A/C and leaking.

Newt Gingrich: The Indispensable Republican
In the twelve years since he resigned in defeat and disgrace, he has been carefully plotting his return to power. As 2012 approaches, he has raised as much money as all of his potential rivals combined and sits atop the polls for the Republican presidential nomination. But just who is Newton Leroy Gingrich, really? An epic and bizarre story of American power in an unsettled age.

The Republican party has no minimum requirements. His conservative talking points come straight from the GOP!

THE smearing of Shirley Sherrod ought to be a turning point in U.S. politics. This is not a "teachable moment." It is a time for action.
The mainstream media and the Obama Administration must stop cowering before a right wing that has persistently forced its propaganda to be accepted as news by convincing traditional journalists that "fairness" requires treating extremist rants as "one side of the story."
