Cautionary tale

Do not, under any circumstances, Photoshop a semi-nude person atop a religious shrine and put it on Facebook. Or even here, I imagine.

Can't wait to see the reaction to this story

So according to aCOWARD when you vote in a primary you are then lawfully held to that party. Here's a little story out of Michigan The revelation that the Michigan Democratic Party’s presumptive gubernatorial nominee voted in the most recent Republican presidential primary won’t strike most Michigan voters as much of a scandal, much less a stain on the nominee’s political integrity.

A reasonable proposal

Granted, terrorist organizations such as Hamas that seem to revel in having children and women killed for propaganda purposes would bitterly denounce this rational idea, but we have to hope the sane still outnumber the insane in the Middle East.

Toledo is going down for the count

I try to stay west of Talmadge Road as much as possible. But a family member was in town and from her days in Toledo, she was familiar with the layout of the Kroger store on Monroe and Secor. So I took her over and waited in the car, Wow--talk about your sociological experience!

First, I see this interesting fellow in a pimped-out Mercedes (gold trim, fancy rims) pull up to a spot in the far reaches of the lot. Sure enough--a woman who looked like she would be more at home on a section of Monroe Street in the heart of downtown--gets out of her car. The Mercedes dude, wearing his rust-colored zoot suit (with matching shoes), gets out of his car. They embrace, she gets into his car--and off they go into the night. I felt the need to immerse myself in a vat of antibacterial soap.

Then there was the beggar at the traffic light exiting the parking lot. Her sign said she was a mother of two and "anything would be appreciated." My friend was shocked to see this. People weren't begging on street corners when she left Toledo 8 years ago (yeah, and Obama wasn't President then either).

As we left, there was a homeless man with all his worldly belongs strapped to his back walking down Monroe headed for Secor.

House Republicans Moving to Give Barack Obama More Than A Billion Dollars to Fund Crisis on the Border

The radical Islamist group terrorizing Iraq and ousting Christians there has threatened President Barack Obama, U.S. sources revealed.

"We're coming for you, Barack Obama," the group threatened, according to Elissa Slotkin, acting principal deputy undersecretary of defense for policy, in a story published by The Hill.

The group's insurgence inside the country has drawn the attention of U.S. officials who have called it "worse than al-Qaida."

Boeing reaches plane parts deal with Iran

The agreement sets out general terms and conditions for the "potential sale of certain goods and services related to the safety of flight," Boeing said in a regulatory filing.

GOP Blasts Democrats for Boycotting Talks on VA Legislation

Republicans slammed Democrats on Thursday after most of them boycotted a conference committee meeting to work out differences between House and Senate bills addressing the Veterans Affairs crisis.

"The crisis at VA is not a partisan problem, and I will do everything I can to prevent this from devolving into an exercise in the sort of bickering and name-calling for which Washington has become infamous," said Rep. Jeff Miller, the Florida Republican who chairs the House Veterans' Affairs Committee.

"We lost contact with the plane." Really?

By John Rappoport

Air Algerie Flight 5017, from Burkina Faso to Algiers crashed, according to "officials."
Some of these officials state contact with the plane was lost an hour after takeoff.
You can probably remember similar statements about other doomed flights: lost contact. Wasn't that the case on 9/11?

"Lost contact" appears to cover all available means of communication. Nothing on radar screens. Radio inoperative. No transponder signals picked up.
In this day and age, with a blizzard of technology available to track and surveil, what is going on?

Muslim Terrorists Use Children as Human Shields!

For some odd reason, modern liberals have chosen to side with fascist Islam against Democratic Israel. It’s a confusing (and disturbing) trend among the modern left, who have turned their back on the attacked Israel in favor of the violent aggressors in Islam.

Perhaps educating liberals might help to change their minds?

Watch this…


Taxpayers start with T and that rhymes with P which stands for pools


I took crap from a number of people on here especially prunefart who no longer posts here about the pic of the empty splash pad I posted some weeks ago. I wonder if the same reaction will be fired back at Ch. 13 for their honest reporting of the dismal numbers of attendance at Toledo pools this year. Of course it's a 'quality of life' issue though.

A small ceremony ushered in the opening of Jamie Farr Pool on North Summit St, Wednesday.

It ain't over 'til it's over

Will the long GM nightmare ever end? Good thing the taxpayers bailed them out.

Common enemy

Unlike my other sparsely attended events tonight's Glenn Beck event against Common Core played to a full house at Fallen Timbers. Hope you were in the crowd, but if not here's a link for the Ohio site

Website problems

No, not Mr. Myers' site. The supposedly all-new and improved government healthcare site is apparently unable to detect fraud.

Do We Want All This Crap---AGAIN!

Do we want another Co-Presidency? It seems like the Patron Saint of Liberal-Land, is still at it. Bill Clinton aka Slick Willy, der Slickmeister, and other excellent nicknames, might end up bringing something back to the Countrys' attention---- the endless discussions about blowjobs each time he gets caught. The last time around, Ms. Clinton was in charge of "Bimbo Eruptions". So following that paradigm, if she gets elected, Bill HIMSELF will be in charge. I can't wait.


A federal appeals court has thrown out an IRS regulation that implements key subsidies for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, dealing a potentially significant blow to the law.

In a 2-1 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit sided with plaintiffs who argued the law, as written, only allows for subsidies to be provided through state exchanges. The lawsuit, Halbig v. Burwell, has the potential to cripple Obamacare in the 36 states where the federal government provides subsidies for low-income people to buy health insurance.

Is Illegal the New “N-word”?

Politically Correct Liberal Fascists are constantly trying to monitor and adjust the speech of everyone around them.

The very existence of the 1st Amendment is a thorn in the flesh of the progressive fascists who wish to silence all disagreement with their personal philosophy.

To that end, they’ve recently been working overtime to eliminate use of the word “illegal” when it comes to immigrants who come here … um … illegally.

Some of these progressives are even pretending that the word “illegal” is as bad as the “N-word.”


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - New census data show working-class whites now make up less than half of Ohio's eligible voters, a demographic change that has both parties expanding their efforts to reach other voters.

Unpublished 2014 census figures show about 4.1 million, or 48 percent, of eligible voters in Ohio are working-class whites. That's down from 50.5 percent in November 2012.

Walker opponent supports outsourcing jobs to China

Scott Walker should have no problem getting reelected after this bombshell got dropped in Wisconsin this week. His opponent's family produces most of their bikes in Germany and China.

Never forget

On Saturday, 200 people marched through the Crenshaw district of Los Angeles protesting racial profiling and gun violence on the first anniversary of the verdict acquitting George Zimmerman of murdering Trayvon Martin.
The crowd, led by Trayvon Martin’s parents, carried banners and chanted, “What do we want?... Justice. What do we want?… Justice.”

Bin Laden is dead GM is alive....................

The vehicles were among 7.55 million in the U.S. in GM's June 30 announcement of six recalls. Seems to me like it would have been cheaper to just buy Bin Laden a GM vehicle and leave it outside his compound like a Trojan horse.
