Climate change alert! Second coldest July since 1860

I saw on 13abc at lunch today that July is shaping up to the the second coldest month since 1860. We are going to need legislation to warm up the atmosphere because of this dramatic climate change. For the sake of humanity, drive your car, use your electric appliances to get the coal plants working, and fire up your grills because we cannot allow this cold temperature to change our environment.

1860 avg July temp 68.0

Carty not to run "only ever planed one term"

According to the Blah and 'SPD, The Fink has informed friends and supporters by snail mail that he will not be running for re-election....

According to the article, when he decided to run 4 years ago, it was always just for one term....


Parking on gravel and grass Downtown

I noticed today that the City of Toledo is setting up a Parking Area in Promenade Park for the 4th of July celebration. Hmmm....I would be suspicious here. Looks like a quick revenue enhancement for the city. If you spot Sue Frederick with ticket book in hand, pull away as quick as possible and cover your license plate so she can't see it!

Rightwing Extremism

Rightwing Extremism:
The Bush administration requested a report on radicalized right-wing groups, along with one on the threats posed by radical left-wing groups, before President Bush left office.
(U//FOUO) Historically, domestic rightwing extremists have feared, predicted, and
anticipated a cataclysmic economic collapse in the United States. Prominent
antigovernment conspiracy theorists have incorporated aspects of an impending

live report - Fred and Mike at CoL meeting

This is the Children of Liberty meeting at the Sanger branch library. Fred Lefebre ( how do you spell that) spoke , now Michael Miller of the Toledo Free Press is up . These two are both funny, regardless if you agree with them or not. Miller looks younger than his FP photo.

TV pitchman Billy Mays was found dead today in his home in Tampa, Florida early this morning.

Micheal Jackson - R.I.P.

From TMZ:

We've just learned Michael Jackson has died. He was 50.

Michael suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon and paramedics were unable to revive him. We're told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back.

Michael is survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II.

Jackson had 13 number one hits during his solo career.

wsj- biggest tax in history, vote likely on Friday

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.

You can now edit your submissions and it is easier to add a location to your post

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.

Sarkozy;France cannot accept Burqas- this from Tricia Lyons FB

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.

U.S. proposes ban on almost all pocket knives


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.

Finding Homes For Cats

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:

Free NRA memberships to all

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.
