Opera's Silly Answers to Real Problems

Now this is just silly - it is also why BravoBox publishes under-cover.
We probably shouldn't have this opinion, and sure as hell shouldn't be saying it, but... The Toledo Blade (yes... I know) published an article on Sunday's front page about the financial struggles at the Toledo Opera. The numbers (and the "solutions") are simply astounding:

Money sent across the pond???

Not a crusade or even a gripe. Just a reminder: To those 8000+ seat holders who crammed a butt-load of cash into Sir Elton John's traveling G-string tonight. Every night and all over this city, professional musicians sit down to play. They work, eat, sleep, shop, and send their kids to school here. Your money - spent in the bars, lounges and concert halls - stays here. Just sayin :-)

Oust Webb, take back Point Place

As a former Point Place resident, I watched with amusement as the "Take Back Toledo" campaign worked to get a recall petition on the ballet to oust Carty Finkbeiner as mayor of Toledo. I think it's time for the residents of Point Place to start a new recall campaign to "Take Back Point Place," and oust Lindsay Webb.

Obama lie of the day: cuts to Medicare providers won't reduce seniors' benefits.

Budget chief contradicts Obama on Medicare costs
By ERICA WERNER (AP) – 4 hours ago

WASHINGTON — Congress' chief budget officer is contradicting President Barack Obama's oft-stated claim that seniors wouldn't see their Medicare benefits cut under a health care overhaul.

The head of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, Douglas Elmendorf, told senators Tuesday that seniors in Medicare's managed care plans would see reduced benefits under a bill in the Finance Committee.

The bill would cut payments to the Medicare Advantage plans by more than $100 billion over 10 years.

Policyholders could pay more under Obama plan

Policyholders could pay more under Obama plan
By TOM MURPHY and LINDA A. JOHNSON (AP) – 7 hours ago

If President Barack Obama gets what he wants in his health care plan — covering all Americans and barring insurers from denying coverage — some analysts say individuals could wind up paying higher premiums.

The Obama plan would impose new costs on insurance companies, which would probably then raise the prices customers pay for coverage. Employers also would likely pass on some of their higher costs to employees.

Up to $3800 fine for not having health insurance

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A top senator is calling for fines of up to $3,800 on families who fail to get medical insurance after a health care overhaul goes into effect.

News headline on Drudge

One of the headlines in "The Drudge Report" this evening.
"Obama: 'UPS and FEDEX are doing fine. It's the Post Office that is always having problems...' "...DUH!

Kaptur's pork makes Drudge


The pork Kaptur added to the climate change bill which no one was allowed to read totals 3.5 billion.

Because of the price tag of this bill alone is essentially guaranteeing it won't pass the Senate but it's important to note it will essentially end up a tax.

However, with all the talk of unneeded pork in the struggling economy our esteemed representative added in 3.5 billion for environmental projects in Ohio and "other midwestern states".

Oops, Yet Another Lawsuit

Perhaps some of the city's money woes have orginated from all the lawsuits against the city, city employees and the Mayor. For example starting with 2008:

1. Karen Stranahan filed suit against the garbage tax stating that it was taxation without representation.

2. The Midwest Retailors Association filed suit station the the city was in violation of the 4th, 5th, 13th and 14th Ammendment of the United States Constitution.

3. The Civil Rights Commision filed suit against the city for discrimantory practices towards employees that worked for the Mayor in 2008
