K Mart Rip-off store closing sale!

So we go to our K Mart that is scheduled to close. Big signs show 10-30% off! OK, that would be off the MSRP ticket. They raised all the prices to take the % off deduction. I found a pair of shoes that was on sale for $11.99, they forgot to remove the sticker, but was now the regular price of $19.99. So at the %-off it would have been $2.00 more than the sale price! Everything was over priced, do not be fooled. The % off is not off the lowest ticketed price, nothing was marked down! I thought I would be sad to see K Mart close, not true after today. RIP K Mart, so sad to end your run this way!

Impeachment

How impeachment works, just in case you didn’t know;

The Constitution does not address whether a president may be criminally prosecuted, and the Department of Justice has previously said that the president can be removed only through the impeachment process. In 1974, Nixon was not criminally charged; the grand jury named him as an unindicted co-conspirator.

The Constitution says grounds for impeachment are “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” A simple majority is needed in the House for articles of impeachment, but conviction in the Senate requires a two-thirds majority (67 votes).

Now you know! You’re welcome! School is now dismissed!

Wade “Skippy” Kapszukiewicz Is Asking For Money.

I am so happy the truth is being told about Skippy that I am going to in part share some of what was written over at Roland’s Ramblings! You can click on the link to read the entire entry, it’s a really good read!

“Going back to his first election back in November 1995, Wade “Skippy” Kapszukiewicz has continuously held one elected political office after another in Lucas County, Ohio as an avowed Democrat.

First, he was elected to the Lucas County Educational Service Center Governing Board. Very soon afterwards, while in the middle of his elected 4-year term on the LCESC Governing Board, Kapszukiewicz announced he was having a political fundraiser as he proclaimed his intention to run for a seat in the Ohio House of Representatives. He abandoned that political goal when the Lucas County Democratic Party tapped Toledo City Councilwoman Jeanine Perry for State Representative. However, Skippy did not just abandon his run for State Rep; he struck a deal with the Lucas County Democratic Party.

In return for dropping a campaign for the Ohio House, Kapszukiewicz received a promise that he would be appointed to the unexpired term on Toledo City Council vacated by Jeanine Perry upon her election to the Ohio House seat. Voilà, Skippy resigned his seat on the LCESC Governing Board in order to accept the appointment to Toledo City Council.”

“In 2002, while on Toledo City Council, Wade K unsuccessfully sought appointment to a vacant unexpired elected term on the Board of Lucas County Commissioners. The vacancy was the result of Bill Copeland resigning his seat on the Board as a Lucas County Commissioner due to poor health.

Later on, while still on Toledo City Council and shortly after having won an elected term to that seat, Skippy sought election to become Lucas County Treasurer, replacing fellow Democrat Ray Kest. Indeed, Kapszukiewicz did, in fact, run for, and won, election to the Treasurer’s office. While the election for Lucas County Treasurer takes place in November, the term of office for Lucas County Treasurer actually does not begin until September of the following year. But, politically ambitious, office-jumping, opportunist, egocentric Wade “Skippy” Kapszukiewicz instead of fulfilling his elected time on Toledo City Council lobbied almost immediately to be appointed to the office of Lucas County Treasurer many, many months prior to the official date to which he was elected. An early appointment did not happen, and poor Skippy had to wait until September to ascend to his golden throne-room overseeing all that public money flowing through the Treasurer’s office.”

“In the year 2015, Skippy announced his desire to run for Mayor of the City of Toledo, Ohio in the special election that was being held due to the unfortunate death of incumbent Mayor Mike Collins in mid-term. However, Kapszukiewicz dropped those plans and instead publicly announced his support and endorsement of Paula Hicks-Hudson, who as President of Toledo City Council had succeeded via the city charter to the Office of Mayor.

In 2016, Wade “Skippy” Kapszukiewicz ran for re-election as Lucas County Treasurer. He won that election in November: but, the new term does not begin until September 2017.”

“But, there is a stumbling block to Skippy’s political desires. Incumbent Paula-Hicks Hudson is seeking re-election to a full 4-year term as Mayor of the City of Toledo, Ohio. She received the endorsement of both the Lucas County Democratic Party and the Ohio Democratic Party. Regardless of the endorsements and in spite of Democratic Party endorsement of Mayor Hicks-Hudson, avowed Democrat Skippy has decided to seek the position for himself.

Over the course of time, Kapszukiewicz has built up a very sizeable political war chest, having had annual fundraisers in non-election years, in additional to extensive election year political fundraising. Skippy has also aligned himself with other politicos from other parts of Ohio, including former Ottawa County Commissioner, State Representative from the 89th district, and Ohio Democratic Party Chairman Chris “Dippy” Redfern, who in 2014 resigned his party chairmanship in political disgrace.

As part of his campaign strategy, Kapszukiewicz makes extensive use of electronic “newsletters” and has had a strong presence on internet social media and elsewhere on the internet.”

“I wonder how much money Chris “Dippy” Redfern is giving. These two career politicians interact like a dog and pony show. I can hear the clowns clamoring now for The Skippy and Dippy Show.”

In my own words, I can tell you there is no way I can support anyone for office that I know 1st hand is only in it for reasons other than what is good for all of us living in Toledo!

Hair Color + Eye Goggles

Now that may sound like a very odd pairing, but I think I just invented something. I bought hair-color the other day and colored my hair yesterday! My new color was not what the box said it would be, hence, a call to the company to let them know what happened! As we were talking, I told the nice young lady on the phone about my idea. Now, what do you think of it? If every box of hair dye can come with those disposable gloves, why don’t they include disposable self-adhesive eye goggles to protect your eyes while rinsing the color out of your hair! Not everyone has someone to help them so they can cover their eyes while getting it rinsed! Come on Garnier, l’Oreal’ Revlon, someone! It’s time to think inside the box and what should be inside of it! I’ll thank you later!

Ad after Ad on Tv Already

So this is only June and the ad I’m speaking of is political! Long way to go until November 7, 2017

Ohio Drug Price Relief Act will be on the 2017 ballot. It would require the state and its programs to pay no more for prescription drugs than what the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs negotiates.

It’s likely to be an expensive campaign for an off-year election.

“We believe we can raise the money to get our message out,” said Dennis Willard, spokesman for Ohio Taxpayers for Lower Drug Prices. “A ‘yes’ vote will mean lower taxes and lower drug prices for the sick and suffering and will teach greedy drug companies and CEOs a lesson.”

Boy does this hit close to home just now. I was given a script by my family Dr. and went to my Drug Store to get it. Turns out I had to say keep it! With Insurance a months supply was over $400.00! Holy SHIT! Just as that was happening to me, a older gentleman was at the Drive-thru window. They told him his co-pay was almost $500.00, he paid it and got the meds! Holy SHIT!

I hope this is a real deal and if approved by the voters will help us all! We can only hope! Not only is it a long way to Tipperary, it’s a long way to Nov. 7th!

May Long Week-end?

Has Memorial Day Week-end lost it’s meaning? Some just think of it as the start of the unofficial summer vacation season! It’s sad that so many of our holidays have taken on a different meaning and purpose! I’m not going to list the other holidays as we all know what they are. This is just about this week-end and what it means to you and me! My Dad and Mom were married on this holiday, May 31, 1942 to be exact. But we still knew what the week-end was for! I’m set in my ways when it comes to these things, don’t mess with my holidays. And as an aside, don’t mess with the colors of my food!  Purple ketchup-NO, Pink butter-NO, white asparagus-NO, White Watermelon-NO, Rainbow Tomatoes-NO!

Memorial Day-2017

Cinco de Mayo

Yes it is May 5th and therefore means it is Cinco de Mayo day! Most folks don’t even know the real meaning for this celebration, all it is to them is a reason to get drunk! The older I get the less use I have for all these holidays that are not celebrated for the reason they are meant for! So go ahead and taco your burrito with some salsa and black beans and dip it into some guacamole!
