The reality is that cost estimates for climate legislation are as unreliable as the models predicting climate change. What comes out of the computer is a function of what politicians type in. A better indicator might be what other countries are already experiencing. Britain's Taxpayer Alliance estimates the average family there is paying nearly $1,300 a year in green taxes for carbon-cutting programs in effect only a few years.
As part of the updates I am implementing, I have decided to give everyone the ability to edit their own stories, events, and blog posts. It will work the same way with comments, you won't be able to delete any of your submissions but you can go back and reword, correct and edit items that you wish. It is retroactive meaning it applies to anything you submitted from the beginning of the site.
I agree with Sarkozy and Lyons. There was a full burqa woman at Ottawa Park golf course the other day with her family. When you come to America, assimilate! Women are free here.
PARIS — President Nicolas Sarkozy said the Muslim burqa would not be welcome in France, calling the full-body religious gown a sign of the "debasement" of women.
In the first presidential address to parliament in 136 years, Sarkozy faced critics who fear the burqa issue could stigmatize France's Muslims and said he supported banning the garment from being worn in public.
Occasionally I will carry a small knife tool. The govt keeps reaching further into our lives.
U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) has proposed revoking earlier rulings that assisted opening knives are not switchblades. The proposed new rule would not only outlaw assisted opening knives, its broad definition of a switchblade would also include one-handed opening knives and could be easily interpreted to cover most other pocket knives, even simple old-fashioned slip-joints.
My daughter has been very active in helping stray cats in her area (neutering, vet checks, socialization) & has created a website to find homes for these cats. She won't adopt them out until they're 'good to go', and is careful about the homes she places the cats with (some cats do well with kids & dogs, others do not). Please take a minute & check out her site, and keep it in mind.
Check out my site and keep us in mind in the future if you choose to adopt a cat:
This is at Sanger branch library, 3030 W Central ave.

The NRA is giving FREE 1-year memberships to everyone who wants to JOIN. It needs to build up its membership to fight pending legislation actions by this administration and the current congressional leadership that will impact our 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms. It is very important for anti-gun congressmen to see how many people they will have to fight to get their legislation through.
Hold Congress accountable. Torture is illegal, and lawbreakers must be held accountable.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is our city and these politicians work for us, not the other way around. If an employee had Carty's track record he would have been fired a long time ago. I personally believe that Carty has done an extremely poor job and needed to be fired some time back. Whether I'm right or not is irrevelant, what is relevant is the condition the city is in now.
My sister in law (laid off from GM) said she saw on the news that employee paychecks from Chrysler bounced. Did anybody else see or hear this? (she also said that her health benefits were just cut, she's been laid off for a month so far).
If you're interested in signing this petition and learning more about this issue, there will be a meeting at Delaney's Lounge on 309 W. Alexis (small strip plaza, next to Marco's Pizza) Thursday May 14th at 7 p.m. For more information go to: http://wedemandavote.com/toledo/
Under Restructuring, GM To Build More Cars Overseas

The U.S. government is pouring billions into General Motors in hopes of reviving the domestic economy, but when the automaker completes its restructuring plan, many of the company's new jobs will be filled by workers overseas.
According to an outline the company has been sharing privately with Washington legislators, the number of cars that GM sells in the United States and builds in Mexico, China and South Korea will roughly double.

My mother lives in Toledo and one of her neighbors said she heard gangs are soliciting money fir protection, She said for $50 / month they would protect you and your property. I was appalled by this but then I gave it some thought and I think that is a small price to pay for protection with the upcoming police layoffs. There is a large number of Toledoans
scared so it is not so hard to believe.
