Maggie Thurber states, "Toledo Public Schools blatantly violating the law ..."

Preface: This commentary is in regards to comments made in regards to the city school system administration in Toledo, Ohio. 

Maggie Thurber in a comment introducing a photo that she placed on Facebook stated, "Toledo Public Schools blatantly violating the law by putting levy signs on school property... Even after I called the Superintendent's to warn them they were violating the law."

In that same message thread, she further wrote, "I gave them more than 3 weeks to get the signs down, which is plenty of time considering they shouldn't have been put up in the first place."

Then she wrote a bit more to which I responded, "I agree with the statement about Toledo Public Schools (Toledo Board of Education) made by Maggie Thurber, i.e. 'When an organization wants us to give them more money, they should play by the rules in that endeavor. It's against the law to use any public resources to promote a ballot issue. They were told in previous campaigns that it was illegal. They were told three weeks ago it was illegal and I was assured they would remove the signs. If they can't keep their word on such a basic issue, it raises issues of trust for everything else.' "

Here, in that the message thread is posted as public, you may read the entire thing for yourself; just open this embedded link:

I would really like to see Maggie Thurber (former member of the Board of Lucas County Commisioners and former Toledo Municipal Clerk of Court) write about that issue over on her blog, Thurber's Thoughts.

News Flash! Toledo, Ohio. Michael S. Miller Of Toledo Free Press Shoots From The Hip, Takes Pot Shots At Toledoans.

Michael S. Miller, editor-in-chief and co-publisher of the Toledo, Ohio community newspaper Toledo Free Press, has resigned his position and is leaving Toledo, Ohio. In doing so, he has penned a farewell epistle in which he took a few parting pot shots at Toledoans. The following excerpts are quotes from that written goodbye piece that has been published in the Toledo Free Press.
"Few experiences foster sentiment like an unexpected goodbye, but as I leave Toledo Free Press — and Toledo — the past few weeks have paradoxically blessed me with great clarity."

"... I have also had to battle a number of absolute creeps and cowards who seek only personal advancement at the expense of the greater community. There are corrupt elected officials, wicked and greedy leeches in the business community, incompetent pay-for-play media practitioners, Judas betrayers, car dealers who prey on economically challenged customers but don’t pay their own bills, weak-willed academics, spineless news anchors and gutter-dwelling errand boys who contribute to the attitudes that rot this ... city at its core. There are people walking among us so warped by their own ambition and hypocrisy that their souls are hopelessly smothered under spider webs of lies and delusion."

"... I have long lamented that Toledoans often chose comfort over ambition. Our people cling to a substandard status quo rather than take risks today that could lead to a better tomorrow for all of us."

"... the corruption that has enveloped so many prominent Toledoans and inhibits Toledo’s growth and prosperity."

"... I refuse to calcify. I refuse to allow a lowest-common-denominator attitude to define my life."

LIGHTING THE FUSE

What do you think of that? Was it nasty enough? What do you think of Michael Miller writing in such bellicose terms?

Oh, so you think I have only given part of the story, eh! Well, you are, in fact, correct. For the entire story, read the entire article for yourself; all you need do is follow the embedded link contained within the reference citation.

Steve Kapner, Expert on American Government and Politics - NOT!

Quotes from Steve Kapner:
... we see brother against brother, friends and family divided, a line in the sand marked clearly as Big Government vs. Individual Citizens. (Feds vs. Rebs) I stand with the Right.
Communist
Socialist
Democrat
Progressive
Keep changing the name eventually you'll fool someone.

Now A Spelling Lesson
The last four letters in American..........I Can
The last four letters in Republican........I Can
The last four letters in Democrats.........Rats
End of lesson
I believe our country was built by men and women who fought against the tyranny of socialism, who came to an unknown world to find freedom and liberty; This desire, this need to be free burned deeply in their hearts. This desire burns deeply in me as well.

ref: TWO DEMOCRATS ON AN ESCALATOR, Facebook entry by Steve Kapner,
initially posted September 28, 2014.

If you look at the comments contained within the thread following the video, you will note one of my comments in which I stated:
Most people are lacking in knowledge when it comes to understanding government and politics. They allow their own preconceived perceptions and personal opinions override factual information; their practice of selective reasoning interferes with an informed mind.


UPDATE - UPDATE - UPDATE
Immediately after having written and pubishing this Roland Hansen Commentary, I placed a link to it on my Twitter feed and on my Google+ page. I then posted a link to my Twitter entry onto the message thread of Steve Kapner as referenced in my blog entry.

A few hours later, this is what has happened:
The following was delivered to my e-mail but was removed by its author as a comment to this thread:

Roland Louis Hansen . Are you off your medication again.
 
Upon several attempts to read the message in the thread to which it was attached, I received the following message from Facebook:
This content is currently unavailable
The page you requested cannot be displayed right now. It may be temporarily unavailable, the link you clicked on may have expired, or you may not have permission to view this page.
In addition to that, I can no longer view the Facebook page of Steve Kapner while I am logged into Facebook. Nor can I send a Facebook private message to Steve Kapner. If I could message him through Facebook or if I had an e-mail address for him, this is what I would write to him:
I see you have blocked me from your Facebook wall and that while logged into Facebook I am not allowed to view the public posting to which I commented and to which I linked in a blog entry of mine; nor am I allowed to further comment on that Facebook message thread which is your pathetic excuse of political analyses that are really perverted convoluted diatribes lacking in factual scholarly research with accompanying objective supportive data. You can dish it out, but not take it, eh? Is censorship your way of handling those with whom you disagree? And you assert you do not want the government to do that very same sort of thing!
In that I cannot send him that message, I guess I will just have to be content with having provided this update to my commentary.

Oh! Incidentally, I have also learned that the posting that I had made on that message thread of Steve Kapner as referenced in my blog entry containing the link to my Twitter entry was removed by Steve Kapner.

Yom Kippur. Rabbi Jason Miller's Blog: Paying for High Holiday Tickets

Tonight begins Yom Kippur. I have previously written of Yom Kippur over at my Roland's Ramblings blog.

With Yom Kippur now upon us, I am reminded of a blog entry recently scribed by Rabbi Jason Miller over at his blog - AND of my own comment in response to it that failed to get a response from the Rabbi.

Go check it out for yourself over at:
