Okay Teabaggers, why is there an Impeach Obama booth out front of the Oregon Kroger

Seriously. You have now lost the ability to say that Dems are making it all up.

Deadline passes

Michigan's inept union leadership missed the July 7th deadline to get a referendum on the November ballot to permanently repeal the state's right to work law. You would have thought that with the rep of being home to the unions, and a union state that they could have gotten the required 322,609 signatures but they didn't. They got zero, they rolled over and played dead.

Teacher Fired Over Namecalling Her Students, Might Be Reinstated

I'm betting she will be rehired. I don't have a dog in this fight, but the issue is still, did she REALLY do anything worthy of being fired over? In a union setting, the grievance procedure has to be followed, and one cannot skip steps, which seems to have happened here.

He doesn't name names and the editors apparently didn't press him to do so, but it's obvious that Ed Moore, a good and decent man, is being set up as a scapegoat.

Obama Sure Got This One Right!

He referred to Mrs. Bill Clintons', and others' remarks as HORSE S-word!

Robin Williams DEAD

Brockovich has shared her views on Toledo's recent water problems, as well as how Mayor Collins handled it (link on next page).
