Toledo Free Press
Thomas Pounds: Outside looking in
The November 15th column in the Toledo Free Press made hay with stories of doom from outside Toledo. In the story a unnamed developer (some source) stated that some businesspeople and suburban partners (again who and how many?) are concerned about the new Toledo Mayor Collins. Ironically most of jobs in the businesses the developer quoted were low wage unlivable jobs.

The Politicians Are Playing Games

Both political parties in this country are playing games with the American public. They feud and fuss with each other for public consumption, to try to make us believe they have real differences. They are both the same, controlled by corporate contributions. The Democrats and the Republicans are supported by the same interests whose only interest is in dividing the American people so they can keep their own power. If the public would unite for the common purpose we could topple the powers that are controlling the political process.

Let's Set Our Priorities Straight

Been doing a little arithmetic and found some shocking statistics. As of January 1, 2013, the population of the United States was 316,809,000. The defense spending of this country, approved by Congress, is $638 billion. The SNAP, food stamp, spending is $78 billion. That equals out to $2,013 dollars for every man, woman, and child for spending on defense. SNAP amounts to a spending of $246.21 for every man, woman, and child. The amount being spent for defense outweighs the spending for SNAP by a nearly 9 to 1 ratio.

Phony scandals: The new Obama narrative...

"Sen. Ted Cruz on Fox News Live at 4:23 (MST) when speaking about Obama and the apparently “phony” IRS scandal;

President to make speech on economy.

Obama says he gives good speeches, and he is about to make another good one according to him. How IRONIC is that, talking about improving the economy but you punish businesses with Obama Care. Obama Care says if you keep your employment below 50 and 30 hours I will reward you, if not I will punish you. What a GENIUS...

What if Zimmerman hadn’t got the shot off after pulling his gun?

If instead George Zimmerman had been killed on the sidewalk with his gun out at his side, would Trayvon have been able to claim self defense? What would have kept Martin from claiming he had to struggle for his life because Zimmerman had followed him and pulled a gun?
