rust belt decline

The entire northwest Ohio region (Toledo and Lucas county) has
one of the highest unemployment rates in the state. I've been up here for the past two weeks, and almost every day there is an announcement of new layoffs.

I don't like the idea of an auto bailout, but if it doesn't happen, it's curtains for Toledo.

By the way, "Joe" the plumber worked on my mom's toilet. Then it broke two weeks later. Also, he's unemployed.

The toilet breaking was obviously the work of Obama supporters who are sabotaging his work in order to undermine reputation.
If you don't see the conspiracy here than there is no hope. You must open your colon to the truth.

My colon opens to the truth every morning at 8:30. Occasionally, some puffs of truth seep out later in the afternoon.
