According to wiki, over 84% of the Cleveland Heights voters supported the buffoon during the last presidential election. . Common sense and making wise choices seems too much for those who constantly remind us we live in a imperfect society. Yes, normal folks realize all kids won't be perfect; but we expect a parent to look out for the welfare of each and every child in the household. This mother was given good medical advice to help her boy and it looks like she was too lazy.

Build the Border Fence


Given a choice, voters in the majority of states have reaffirm The Defense of Marriage Act, each and every time. It was wrong for judges and politicians to enact legal policies that are typically not honored in the majority of states. To be clear to the 'No H8' crowd, many Americans will never except an 'Adam and Steve' union as equal to a traditional marriage. It ain't hatery, they are just living their values.

McDonald's Will Charge For Happy Meal Toys In SF



McDonald's will start charging customers 10 cents who request the popular plastic trinkets be added to their Happy Meals.

I've always been able to purchase toys without @ meals at our local McDonald's, but not for a dime...more like a dollar, depending on the toy...

Local paper version of this issue.

Sugary cereal ads continue to trouble health advocates

Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, R-Cape Girardeau, sponsored a bill earlier this year that called for the proposed federal guidelines to undergo a cost-benefit analysis.

"The language I included in HR2434 (the bill) would require the working group to assure Congress that the contents of their report on food marketing would really make a difference in childhood obesity rates," Emerson said, in a written statement. "The best nutritional decisions are made by parents and caregivers — not by federal bureaucrats, no matter how well-intentioned."

Health advocates say if Emerson's provision passes in a larger appropriations bill, it could kill the recommendations altogether.

The Angels are probably the best known citizens of Oakland who will gets the lawyers to go after businesses for trademark infridgement.

Oakland Raiders Suing Burger Joint

The picture to the right shows Nation’s Giant Hamburgers latest ad campaign. Since they are a northern California chain, it makes some sense to go with a theme. In this case, they chose to use the Raider Nation. They even put this ad on a billboard right next to Oakland Alameda Coliseum. The problem is that Nation’s never asked permission from the Raiders to use the slogan. And, like any good team once owned by Al Davis, the Raiders are suing.

The complaint, in part, reads:

“The “Raid a Nation’s” slogan is an obvious reference to the famous Raider Nation mark that identifies the Raiders and their loyal fans.The advertisement is easily visible to thousands of game day fans, as well as countless others who drive by the complex every day.”

On top of borrowing Raider Nation, they also added an eye-patch to the burger (to make it look mean). In essence, they are making it look like the Raiders have partnered with the team to sell hamburgers.

One of my friend made the mistake of picking me up after I had a few beers and then he decided we should stop and eat inside a White Castle. Of course I brought along my can of beer to go with my meal. A nearby gentleman came over, flashed his police badge and my beer went into trash can.
