A Fourth Leg For Conservatives' Big Table

On Feb. 17, most of the leaders of the traditional conservative movement gathered in Arlington, Va., to plan strategy, and issued a statement of conservative principles. However, the conservative movement is rapidly changing and significantly expanding because of the addition of millions of Tea Partyers.

Ludeman, Waniewski, and Collins on WSPD, not a new law firm

As our coverage of the 2010 budget continues on 1370 WSPD Tom Waniewski and D. Michael Collins weigh in on tax reciprocity etc. Tuesday it was Rob Ludeman http://www.wspd.com/pages/fredstop10.html podcast here who says his vote is a firm "NO". With Sarantou's no and Webb and Collins that makes four already. Adam Martinez will be on Thursday along with Dr. Steve Steel. Should be fun.

Ohio's pain is Atlanta's gain



In all, 43 Midwestern companies have established headquarters, warehouses, distribution centers, factories, branch offices or testing labs across the region since 1999, according to the Metro Atlanta Chamber. Ohio alone has shipped 20 of those companies or their units down Interstate 75. Only three other states -- California, Florida and Texas -- have been more generous toward Atlanta.

Exclusive: TPS's first TV income tax levy commercial titled "It will get ugly"

Given this was sent to me from someone at the production house, it is missing the disclaimers, the intro and the ending. I am told the intro segment will say, "Don't let things get ugly." Then the normal exit segment, "Vote for the Toledo Public School levy in May" with the normal campaign committee disclaimers at the end. Makes the point doesn't it?

IRS Plane Attacker Part of ‘Right Wing,’ Christmas Bomber Just a ‘Lone Wolf’

Todd Warner Houston on bigjournalism.com is taking on those in the journalistic community who are happy to label the nut who flew the plane into the Tex IRS building an extreme right winger while the underwear bomber is just a lone wolf, same with the base shooter; either the media should call them all lone wolf nut jobs or part of a bigger plan.


Franklin Park Mall Security

ts good their is more security at the mall. But this happened before a year ago or so. I would bet in a month or two the extra security will disappear until the next riot takes place.

Heres an idea why don't Toledo provide Tarta buses at the mall and provide free transportation to Levis Square or Fallen Timbers Mall. That should cut down on the violence at Franklin Park, Share the pain.

Lucas County GOP precinct committee races

The Lucas County Republican Party will appear to have an interesting central committee election again. Of course some of the contested races are a bit strange, like Jon Stainbrook running against one of the Manson Girls Kelly Bensmen and there are a few other races of Stainbrook supporters challenging other Stainbrook supporters. Once the lists are certified, then we can see who is actually challenging who and who is a supporter and who is not. Until that time, you can get the uncertified list at:

BOE films petition filings

Hmm, I wonder who they are referring to feeling mistreated.

The Lucas County Board of Elections (BOE) had a video camera running all day Feb.18, the deadline for May primary petitions.

Linda Howe, BOE director, said the camera tri-pod was set up in the morning to film the entire day, with switching of tapes periodically.

Remaining anti-whatever accomplishes nothing

ONLY a fool would dismiss the Tea Party phenomenon as nothing more than a bunch of radical right-wing nuts gathering to vent.
Only a fool would allow himself to get swept up in baseless hysteria created by talk-show hosts getting rich off inflamed lemmings.
Only a fool would discount positions because they come tainted with meaningless labels, such as liberal or conservative.

Judge rules against Jon Stainbrook...again

This just in from Michael Miller of the Toledo Free Press: Like all of the other courts Jon has tried to argue his case in, they are all saying the same thing. Why is it that Jon does not want to bring his case to the Ohio Republican Party? Is he afraid of the result? Thankfully we can move on with this now that Judge Doneghy has ruled. When the story is posted, I will go ahead and link to it. The judge has ordered the Ohio Republican Party Central Committee to take the case and to move forward as prescribed by law.

Parties argue case in court - again

The latest stumble in the inevitable. Jon is just buying time.

A lawyer for embattled Lucas County Republican Party Chairman Jon Stainbrook urged a judge yesterday to rule Mr. Stainbrook’s rival, Toledo lawyer Jeff Simpson, out of compliance with state law in his bid to be the rightful party chairman, while Mr. Simpson’s lawyer urged the judge not to venture down that legal path.
