In what is being reported as a surprise move, the 40,000 members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) announced that they have formally ended their association with the AFL-CIO, one of the nation's largest private sector unions. The Longshoremen citied Obamacare and immigration reform as two important causes of their disaffiliation.
Last month Sandra Meeks-Speller was fired by the TPS Board members despite the recommendation of a third party referee that she retain her job. Tuesday I'll look into the story with her advocate Dr. Earl Murry . Earl and I go back a few years and he has asked to come on the show to deal with this firing. He believes this teacher got a raw deal.
Here's the story to refresh your memory-TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
TPS board members voted 4-1 Tuesday to fire Assistant Principal Sandra Meeks-Speller, effective immediately.
here's an opportunity to learn about your white privilege from an expert on the subject. http://www.toledoblade.com/local/2013/09/01/Forums-intendto-spark-discus... According to Rev. Karen Shepler "Toledo residents can combat racism “just by becoming informed,” she said.
so go to this forum, hear about your white privilege, and problem solved. another simplistic liberal idea for solving a problem that can only be solved one on one.

Check this one out! Detroit sugar babies increasing income. Oh well.....
Fat asswipe Dick Trumka realizes Obamacare is not the bill he thought it was especially for union members. Should have listened to WSPD when we said it was bad you fat overpaid asshole.
I have cut & pasted this from Facebook.
I totally agree with this.
The below summarization of Barack and Michelle Obama’s 5 year reign in the White House is by far the best I’ve ever read as it squarely hits the nail on the head. And it took a black reporter writing it to make it as effective as it is. A white man’s account would be instantly criticized by the liberal media as pure racism. But, how can anyone scream Racist when an exacting description of the Obamas is penned by a well known journalist of color?
BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE EVER!
Banning More Books - Cranky Mom Wants ‘The Diary Of Anne Frank’ Censored Because It Contains A Ladybit
A parent in Northville is upset over Frank’s references to her own genitalia in the diary. She says the passages made her daughter uncomfortable and that the school should have requested parental permission before assigning it to students. ’It’s pretty graphic, and it’s pretty pornographic for seventh-grade boys and girls to be reading,’ Horalek told the Detroit’s Fox affiliate. ‘It’s inappropriate for a teacher to be giving this material out to the kids when its really the parents’ job to give the students this information.’
The passage that had Horalek’s daughter so upset?
College graduate Aaron McGruder created the Boondocks comic strip and then took it to television where it flourishes. He also worked on the screenplay for the movie Red Tails about the Tuskegee Airmen. Watch this short video of his version of the MLK speech.

TPS Superintendent Dr. Romules Durant was interviewed this morning on WSPD by Fred LeFebvre.
After listening to the interview, I have one message for anyone who lives in, works in, owns a business in and/or lives near Toledo--be afraid, be very afraid.
Once you get past Durant's speech impediment and his propensity to say "in regards to" every 20 seconds (not to mention the difficulty he has with subject/verb agreement--e,g. "There need to be..."), the context of his ideas are scary.
He indicates that TPS needs to provide a "Cradle to career" experience for Toledo children and that poor-performing students represent a "Community issue that's going to take a community solution." What?! How about parents accepting the responsibility to motivate their children to value education and respect teachers? It's as if he's come to the decision that TPS parents can't be expected to carry through on even the most basic parental duties.
Earlier this month, my former intern, Jillian Melchior, was able to obtain three of the free phones on the streets of New York City without telling a single fib. Melchior, now a reporter for National Review, says the service reps who signed her up seemed completely uninterested in whether she was eligible for the program — she isn’t.

Great story for all of you who hate Rush and were hoping Cumulus would drop him. Despite compliants by owners of Cumulus that Limbaugh comments were hurting the bottom lline, apparently they weren't hurting it much.
Cumulus will continue to pay Premiere (Clear Channel) for the rights to carry Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh has signed a new three-year deal with Cumulus, he revealed Friday.

Two thugs decided to beat to death an 88 year old WWII veteran the other day. No motive was given by the one thug in custody but we can guess at one based on what Zeyad says about euros here on this board.
Customers of Buckeye Express will see as much as a $10-per-month rate increase for Internet service starting on September 1.
The company has developed a website giving a rather convoluted explanation as to why the rates are increasing--it has something to do with Netflix or YouTube or the government or something. (I always love when Buckeye blames the government. Especially since the Block family has been so active in promoting the liberal politicians that have inhabited the Northwest Ohio scene--FOREVER!)
For most customers of Buckeye Express, the increase will be $7 per month. There is a "fine print" addendum that indicates that if you have an Internet-only plan through Buckeye (i.e. you don't have any other service like cable television), your increase will be $10 per month.
This increase comes a little more than a year after Buckeye Express initiated a consumption plan that charges $10 for each 50 GB of use beyond your monthly allowance. That change in June 2012 forced a lot of businesses and heavy Internet users to find another provider.
