What the hell is up at the Toledo Blade?

I just got back from a trip and maybe I still need some rest because I feel like I go up on the wrong side of the bed. But I almost lost my B-Fast when I read the editorial yesterday about cleaning house at TPS. How in the world can the Blade now want radical change when they were the ones advocating for the status quo for so long????? They say Sanders was the greatest thing but now they say there are major problems??? What about everyone else who have been saying there are problems for so long??? How does Jack Ford after he is elected on the board all of a sudden realize there are problems??? Do they think we are stupid to not notice this???? Just when I thought things were strange, they get stranger. I need to go sleep!!!!!!!!!

One of the basic characteristics of corrupt people. If the idea is not their own, its a bad idea. They will criticize the idea until it dies. Later, the corrupt ones will tweak and resurrect the idea as their very own. Only the people who originally came up with the original idea will be angry and frustrated. The rest of the world will praise the corrupt ones and this great, new idea they came up with. This is called the game of "Clarity Of The Mind's Eye"

Another law of the corrupt ones. If a bum identifies a pothole in the street as a problem, the pot hole doesn't exist. If the President of the United States of America identifies the same pothole as a problem, its a national crisis. This is called the game of "High Chair, Low Chair"

Lastly, where you stand will determine where you sit.

Frankly, I rarely agree with any of the political editorials. However, I know the people involved and they are very intelligent and very nice folks. I just don't agree.

The fact that people feel threatened, or "lost their B-fast," is beyond my comprehension. To describe the opinion pieces as the product of "corrupt ones" demonstrates the "holier than thou" attitude that pervades those who actually believe that they are anything other than corrupt human flesh that they accuse other of, themselves.

And that is what's sad.

The people involved why they did not give the others the credit due? The fact is they won't because they are biased and this editorial proves it.

Darlene Fisher pushed the MOU issue, no mention of her. Why is this????? Steve Flagg and others have been saying TPS needs change for a long time, no mention there. Huh, why is this??????? Heck there was even the "3 for Change" slate and at the time the Blade thought they did not know what they are talking about which is why we don't need all of them them, just Torres.

Now Jack Ford, who admits had no clue what was happening when he got on the board, all of a sudden says changes are needed, now the Blade is saying we need change. Why does it take the mummy to say change is needed then they change. Why could it not be in 05 or even 06 when many were saying this????

The Blade supports someone who is sloppy and has no clue what his address and phone number are and we are supposed to believe that he now know what goes on???? Of course, when you are protecting the good old boy club, it is OK to overlook some of these gaffes. I think Jame Kirk is exactly right, corruption plain and simple.

THIS IS WORTHY OF LOSING A BREAKFAST and for you to not see it is sad. We all see it.

The fact is the Blade must be admitting they were hoodwinked by Sanders, because the need for radical change as well as a culture of mediocrity is not developed overnight or the 1.5 years Foley is in there. Or they know that in order for Ford to win, they need to now advocate for change. Either is beginning to prove the Blade is part of the problem this area faces because they were either hiding the problems before and being a gatekeeper for corrupt people. If they were truly fair they would give credit and acknowledge those who did not need 3 months on the board to know change was needed.

It was also fun to see the editorial writers no longer say a levy is needed anymore. Got hoodwinked there too huh????? Because that was a motif for many editorials, "we need a levy", "we need a levy", oops they had the money all along we proved we drank the cool aid and are stupid. No credit to those in the community who were exactly right saying they had the money huh....why because that would prove we did not know what we were saying.

Paul we are not stupid!!!!

So if you know the people involved, tell them to explain this whole paradox.

Here's the deal. The world is comprised mostly of people with mediocre and less than mediocre intelligence. The geniuses number few compared to the number of mediocre people. All is needed is one good power broker and a significant number of the people who are average and below average and the exceptional people are neutralized. Most institutions, companies and organizations are run that way. They are set up so that mediocre people run the show. The geniuses are bled for their innovation and creativity and then silenced while the power broker enjoys the rewards. The power broker's followers are given a few treats they didn't have before, enough to make them feel that they are moving toward their own individual goal or it gives them immediate gratification.

Lets look at the Finkbeiner Administration, TPS and even the Federal Government. Lets ask the question, are these people geniuses or do they fit the description above? Hmmm!

WELL SAID!!!!

manufactured information.

You read a whole lot into the editorials. I can't begin to address your concerns, because, frankly, you make no sense. What specifically are you accusing the editorial people of, anyway? Your rant indicated that you consider them to be corrupt.

I repeat:

Frankly, I rarely agree with any of the political editorials. However, I know the people involved and they are very intelligent and very nice folks. I just don't agree.

The fact that people feel threatened, or "lost their B-fast," is beyond my comprehension. To describe the opinion pieces as the product of "corrupt ones" demonstrates the "holier than thou" attitude that pervades those who actually believe that they are anything other than corrupt human flesh that they accuse other of, themselves.

And that is what's sad.

Your rant makes absolutely no sense.

The only way I can rationalize what you ranted is to imagine that, perhaps, you are some zealot for a particular candidate, or are a media competitor that is (justifiably) concerned that more people read The Blade's editorials, than any story or program that you may offer. Again, your rant makes no sense. I don't think that editorial / opinion writers will write columns on which everyone will agree.

I take it that you don't agree.

No one there that I know is corrupt. And when I see someone pointing fingers at others, calling them to be "corrupt," then that usually means that the finger-pointer is most likely the corrupt one.

I like this...sad though it is...

By the editors of a newspaper offering opinion on any thing?

After all it is just an opinion, is it not?
