Elections have consequences. These union idiots did more than just ask to get laid off. They VOTED to get laid off.

How brain dead do you have to be, to think this guy dealt efficiently with the recession, when nearly 1 in 4 of our workers is out of work? And that doesn’t even address another 25% that are making far less than they used to.

They can get on their hands and knees to crawl around looking for a shovel ready job.

Hopefully previews of coming attractions. The Toledo Blade has been a far left publication at least since the 70’s. Silence at last.

I missed that SNL skit... All I have to say is.... Liberalism, a death cult financed by Business Billionaires whom somehow get pegged as Conservatives by the Drive by Media.

That's about as stupid as a union coal miner voting for Obama.

In retrospect, that is wickedly darkly funny. It reminds me of a passage I read about WWII. The war was nearing an end, and anyone with a scintilla of intelligence knew Germany was going to finally lose. However there was a meeting of a group of German Officers. The Officer giving the speech said something to the effect: "And when we win the war you will all be given great estates in America." Loved it!

It makes about as much sense as any given senior citizen joining AARP.

In light of the VA scandal, a prelude to Obamacare, I wonder if there are any veteran's groups who will endorse any Democrat who voted for Obamacare?

You know what?

I’m not sure about standing up for this group.

Maybe a conservative publication can buy it, and then we can talk.

By and large I believe we have overdone the “sell out American companies” in every field, in every way.

This one, I think I’m with you.

“Bye”.

I don’t know much about the Toledo paper, but I love it when the NEwark Star-Ledger has lay-offs. This goes beyond them endorsing the candidates that hurt business in general; any newspaper that endorses a Dem is usually supporting public schools as well, and their next wave of prospective customers can’t even read.

Remember that slogan boys, "We want change....."

You'll be repeating it on street corners with a cup in your hand.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch.

The irony is simply too delicious.

Is the Blade still publishing a print version or have they gone digital?
