This in from Steven Flagg of the Urban Coalition http://www.tpsinfo.org .

Tomorrow, February 4, 2010, the Toledo Board of Education meets in a special board meeting to, most likely, pass a resolution putting a levy on the May 4th primary election ballot.

Does Toledo Mayor Mike Bell pander to blacks and reward race hustlers?

...the controversial payouts to two former city employees who claimed they were fired illegally by former Mayor Carty Finkbeiner were not settled last night.

Council put off for at least two more weeks voting to approve $300,000 for Dwayne Morehead, former co-executive director of the city's youth commission, and $150,000 for Perlean Griffin, formerly director of the Office of Affirmative Action.

Facts and Fiction About House Bill 428 - remove the $20 late license plate renewal fee

Over the past two months I have received many calls from constituents objecting to the new $20 late vehicle registration fee that was implemented by House Bill 2, the biennial transportation budget. When this fee was first brought to my attention during the debate on HB 2, I had to admit that I was perplexed. I already thought it was illegal in the state of Ohio to operate a motor vehicle with expired tags.

This President and his administration were delivered a nation and economy on life support a year ago. No one understood whether the world economy would implode, resulting in a global depression.

Fortunately, we have stepped back from the abyss and the economy is slowly recovering, but all we hear from the media is why are we not yet out of the woods.

Let Haiti help themselves

Haiti is not our problem

We can help Haiti by leaving them to fend for themselves, to get their act together, to finally form some proper government and stop demanding the White Man do everything for them or we should restore colonialism, new and improved, full force!

MLK Day is as fake as Kwanzaa!

A Decade of Self-Delusion

A Decade of Self-Delusion by Pat Buchanan (Republican)

About the first decade of what was to be the Second American Century, the pessimists have been proven right.

According to the International Monetary Fund, the United States began the century producing 32 percent of the world's gross domestic product. We ended the decade producing 24 percent. No nation in modern history, save for the late Soviet Union, has seen so precipitous a decline in relative power in a single decade.

The Toledo Blade weighs in: "Gerken Going Rogue"

UAW commissioner

PETE Gerken the longtime United Auto Workers' official should have known better than to purchase an Acura TL automobile as a Christmas gift for his wife. But Pete Gerken the Lucas County commissioner should have thumbed his nose at UAW bullies who strong-armed him into returning the American-made vehicle.

Who is the embarassment here? The former mayor or the talk show host.

By the time you’re reading this, it will be almost over: Four long, hard, grueling years of national embarrassment, local incompetence and stunted economic growth, all the result of what history may accurately record as Toledo’s Greatest Mistake, the election of Carl Finkbeiner.
What else could explain the (re-) election of a certifiable failure and nationally known joke-of-a-mayor whose sole accomplishment was as a “Trivial Pursuit” answer?

It's easy to criticize cops when YOUR life isn't in danger!

Folks challenge use of force against mentally ill woman

At a candlelight vigil held Tuesday evening, people remembered Linda Hicks, who died Monday after being shot by Toledo police. Now, people are questioning whether the use of such force against the mentally ill woman was really necessary.

Parallels to FDR's treatment of Business in the 30s

Just read an interesting op-ed piece in Bloomberg by Amity Shlaes that draws parallels between what the Federal Govt is doing to business now and what FDR and company did to business in the 1930's. This is worth the read. Here is the link: http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601039&sid=aAdz7MFnI4X4

President Obama Face Time

Well I guess we had another visit from our prime time President (move over Dion) on his latest crisis he felt compelled to make, the most pressing emergency in the history of the USA. Not that the troops aren't important but come on! It was all leaked the weekend before as test balloons to see just how much flack he was going to be getting from everywhere. (A typical tactic of the Obama Admin,) The dithering for the entire month did show that he was truly perplexed on the whole issue, and he showed it in the various photo ops he staged with flag draped coffins and strolls through Arlington.

Another bad decision by former UT dean Yueh-Ting Lee

As you can see with the previous post Yueh-Ting Lee has threatened to sue Lisa Renee at Glass City Jungle for linking to stories about his resignation at the University of Toledo as his role as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. As we also read, he moved to the HR department but it makes one wonder if he should be in an admin position at all.

George Washington, Thanksgiving and Joseph's Birthright!

George Washington issued our country's first Thanksgiving Proclamation on October 3, 1789. In it, President Washington wrote:

"Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor . . .

Dr. Kevorkian elevated to sainthood?

Could it be? Is it possible? Did I hear that right?

I couldn't believe my ears when I tuned into 60 minutes last night and was actually hearing the advocating for limited health care for the terminally ill patients in the ICU. After all they are just going to die anyway. It's a "natural progression".
