Jim Tressel and UT Provost compete for the same job

What do former OSU football coach Jim Tressel and UT Provost Scott Scarborough have in common? Well, along with both being forced from their previous jobs as a result of scandals--they now are competing for the presidency of the University of Akron.

Tressel and Scarborough are among 19 applicants vying to be president of Akron (a link to a related article appears at the end of this posting). Tressel is currently UA's executive vice president for student success.

Obviously, the activities leading to Tressel's OSU departure were well-documented; but publicity regarding Scarborough's suspension and subsequent resignation from DePaul University was primarily limited to the Chicago media. In 2007, the DePaul Board of Trustees suspended Scarborough from his position as executive vice president for what a DePaul spokesman described as "Something we investigated thoroughly." Scarborough later resigned.

DePaul never publicly disclosed what he did, but Scarborough did not receive severance pay--which is very unusual for a person at his level of administration.

is cbs hiring a white male instead of minority to replace letterman racist?

Of course it isn't! CBS and Colbert are liberals--they can't be racist. Glad we got that out-of-the-way.

JEB BUSH IS SERIUOSLY CONSIDERING A RUN AT BECOMING OUR NEXT POTUS

First of all, let me make it clear that Jeb Bush is NOT the person I want to be POTUS. I want a mainstream Democrat to win the 2016 election. I just believe that too many strongly ideological conservatives are blinded to any candidates other than the Rick Santorum/Ted Cruz/Rand Paul/Sarah Palin types. BTW -- This is NOT meant to be an exclusive nor exhaustive list of candidates "acceptable" to the right-wingers. But it seems as though, Republicans who see some value in compromise on some issues have no chance at all of winning the Republican nomination for POTUS.

New Prostitute Pelosi Photo Ad Enrages Liberals: “It Is a Disgusting New Low”

Democrats are furious over a new Breitbart News ad depicting Congressional Representative Nancy Pelosi as a prostitute willing to do anything to further her political agenda.

The ad superimposes Pelosi’s face onto the body of Miley Cyrus. The ad, which was denounced by the Democratic National Committee, also takes a shot at California Governor Jerry Brown.

Wasserman Schultz issued a statement Monday about Breitbart’s new California politics ad, which featured an image of a bikini-clad Pelosi sprawled on the floor on her hands and knees, The Hill reported.

Quote from article:

toledo in top ten of most obese cities

Could we be any prouder of Toledo? According to Gallup, Toledo is the 7th most obese city in the Country.

The problem with Toledoans is not that we're fat, it's that we're too truthful. The Gallup rankings were based on telephone interviews. Honestly, when Gallup asked, "How much do you weigh?" you couldn't have knocked off 15 or 20 pounds?!

I don't think we should be ashamed that we rank above the beer-guzzling, brat and cheese-eating residents of Green Bay--their winters are typically colder and keeping warm burns-off a lot more calories.

Obama to get Special Forces recognition?

By now, we are all aware of how tough Obama is. So when I read this report about Obama becoming an honorary Green Beret, well I said to myself, “It’s about TIME!”

I interject quickly that this is SATIRE (sad that I would have to actually point this out), but the report is funny nonetheless. Let’s face it, in the Era of Obama nothing is impossible, when it comes to giving out laughable lauds.

As was farced in Red Flag News:

Progressives Shutting Down Dissenting Voices & Skeptics

We have them here to, at Swampbubbles, just saying...

It's funny (not funny ha ha) that leftists must always be fighting against something. They must always have a bogeyman lurking in the shadows that they feel the need to defend the rest of us from.

Liberals can't just mind their business and live their lives. It might be the mythical separation of church and state, homosexual "marriage" or a "woman's right to choose" to murder her baby. No matter what, the wacky cause du jour, there must always be a straw dog oppressor, or denier.

George Soros – Obama’s Puppet Master

We left off our last article about Obama's Puppet Master, George Soros showing how he may well be connected to what many had once believed to be just a fictional idea of what is called the "Shadow Party." Just the name of such an idea alone gives just cause for concern since it implies that our nation has a party running this nation behind the shadows! However, it is not such a "Shadow Party," since many people associated with it have direct, or indirect, links back to none other than George Soros. Let us begin by showing just where the very idea of a "Shadow Party" has developed.

Unexploded Bombshell: Barack Obama Admitted Kenyan Birth..

I am mad as hell. President Barack Obama, in 1991, admitted being born in Kenya, and no one seems to care. This is not hearsay. It is documented. This is not a typical "bombshell" because the truth is that we have known about this for well over a year, and some have known for much longer than that. The problem is that no one wants to report it or talk about it. The media and lock-stepping useful idiots will either make excuses or simply pull out the insults.

suggestion for the treeces and their airport privatization plan

As has been well-documented in recent weeks, the Treece family has developed a proposal where the Toledo Express and Toledo Executive airports would be operated by private management. Mayor Collins quickly squelched the plan.

I have one sure way that the Treece airport plan would receive immediate approval. You see--The Blade’s J.R. Block is really envious that the newspaper’s president and general manager, Joe Zerbey, IV, has an airport named after his newspaper-owning family. The Schuylkill County Pennsylvania airport is called “Joe Zerbey Airport.” It’s the truth. That might explain the obsession Block has with Toledo Express Airport's future.

My suggestion for the Treeces would be to add the following statement to their plan: "Upon switching to private management, the Toledo Express Airport will forever be known as the 'Block Family International Airport.'” Their proposal would be signed, sealed and delivered.

Attacks from Reid to Koch brothers for Offenses Committed by Reid Donors.

Wow! What a hypocrite, read the story, goggle it.

Obama's all over the Fort Hood shooting..

Obama said it again "We will get to the bottom of this". Yeah, just like Benghazi and all the other issues he is supposed to Get To The Bottom Of. Oh! and lets not forget about Clinton not allowing Military personal to carry personal protection on base. What will the liberal gun control advocates say now, that no assault rifle was used.

My liberal co-workers are having a heyday today talking about how we need more gun laws to prevent future tragedies like the Fort Hood shootings. I put them into a temporary tizzy when I pointed out there was a law that prohibited guns on the Army base (a fact of which they apparently weren't aware). They said something about the Koch brothers and were back on their "more anti-gun laws" mantra in no time.

We got into a discussion on if laws actually prevent anything. Here's a question to which I really don't if there's an answer:

NAME A LAW THAT HAS PREVENTED AN ACTION FROM EVER HAPPENING AGAIN.

The good news about 8 zillion people signing up for Obamacare on the last day

Tagged:  

Just as Obama was counting on the stupidity of Americans to elect him President (and they didn't disappoint him--twice!) he knew that he could rely on the dinosaur media to get out the propaganda on what a success Obamacare turned out to be (and for those same ignorant Americans to believe it).

Ain't it great that close to 500 million Americans--or something like that--were able to get on the Obamacare website (even though it wasn't really working) and register on the day before the deadline?

The good news is if this group of people was able to navigate an application process that required persistence--GETTING A PHOTO ID TO TAKE TO THE VOTING BOOTH SHOULD BE A PIECE OF CAKE! We will no longer need to talk about how disenfranchised these people are and imply that we just can't expect them to meet the same standards that we have set for the rest of us.

Obama lauds health care sign-ups of over 7 million

Bullshit!!!!!!!!! What else would they say. Even some insurance companies are saying the numbers are inflated. Premiums will keep climbing .The CBO said tthat in 2014, 47 million Americans will remain uninsured.

How to rig an election through the Board of Elections.

"Did Gallaghers actions stop challenges and write-ins against Stainbrook candidates?"

The petitions were withheld from a timely release in order to avoid the usual public scrutiny. Meghan Gallagher sat on the books instead of releasing information in a timely manner in order to keep the Republican write ins and other Candidates on the ballot for May's primary elections.

Read it here! You'll not see this in the daily local!

GLOBAL WARMING: THE LATEST FRON THE UN.

I am attaching a link to this article which was on that far-left website MSN News. For those who believe that all of this global warming is nonsense aimed at America to try to destroy America's relative prosperity, the article points out that the heaviest polluter "by far" is China. Is there a connection between the pollution in China and the movement of heavily polluting industries to China from America, Europe, and Japan? Hmmm...

IMHO -- Those who presented the study deny that it is "too alarmist." However, there is an apocalyptic feel to it. GZ aka Mr. Empty Glass should LOVE it!
