Carey's Official Announcement

Hey Gang,
Some of you know this already but this is the official announcement, I am now on the radio, another oportunity I am relishing in.
The show is BREAKDOWN RADIO with Mike (Gutierrez) and Josh (Guzik), and every other week Mike Pelsozy comes on with local news and political updates. It airs every Saturday from 2 to 3 pm on WELW 1330 am.
I have been asked before to come on radio shows, the first time by Bishop Davis way back, but each time turned it down from fright. Not wanting to let another opportunity pass I pushed myself into going.
The first visit I was so nervous. Mike asked did I want to speak and I quickly said OH NO, let me sit and watch. The second time I showed up I was thinking to myself I can do this, no one can see me, what's to worry. And then Mike makes the announcement "And for those of you with a computer you can watch us online." I was just gathering my confidence and then I had to hear that. The first three shows all I said were a few sentences and thats it.
For those of you who have never done something like this its very intimidating and not as easy as it looks. It takes timing and quick thinking. Watching from the sidelines and doing it are completely different. Mike and Josh have very good chemistry and they keep the current flowing. Mike kept telling me you want to say something just jump in. When I did have a thought and tried to get it out they had already moved on.
The show is Christian/Conservative talk and has four things going for it, random topics, its lively, informative, and slightly controversial. Someone called and said we were an embarrassment to the Republican party. It was either a Democratic plant or a Republican who was stunned by the forthright honesty. We don't favor anyone.
Mike Gutierez, besides having a terrific radio voice, is extremely gifted and quite natural behind the mic as he is also in person giving speeches. He has the knack of continuing to speak while thinking of the next topic or thought. He never pauses or says ummm or ahhh as so many do. Mike can be talking about politics and then slide right into talking about God without you even realizing the transition. Josh Guzic is equally as quick witted with his added comments and thoughts. As for Mike Pelsozy he is in your face and animated. He gives you your medicine whether you like it or not.
As for myself, I don't know how long this stint will be but even if I just sit in and give an occasional absolutely or amen I am enjoying it.
I know I am still very green but kind of embarrassed that I haven't shaken the nerves completely and still stumble. Mike has pitched a few softballs to me and I don't feel I capitalized enough. February 6 Mike did a review of my take on the state of the union address and tried to plug my writings. When asked where they can be read I couldn't remember my own blog and I didn't even think of plugging the GoGo Bus site.
And last week I had a super opportunity to really expose Euclid when Mike got to talking about Cleveland being the most miserable city. I cut in with what Euclid is doing to me. I got to wound up, to nervous and don't think I bridged the topics enough. I did mange to get some thoughts out and the person manning the sound board cut in and said he knows all to well what Euclid is doing.
Give the show a listen. I may not say to much as I am still learning but most importantly its another wonderful experience that I can say HEY I DID IT!

Also find February 6th to hear a review of my writings.

This posting really jumps around

This posting really jumps around.

What happened to the scare and hype concerning the H1N1? What did I tell you? When all the fear was circulating I kept saying it coincidences with the hype surrounding the health care bill. It was preparing peoples minds to think of health issues and what if I get sick? It seems to be a rather mild year for the flu. No schools have shut down as in previous years. But lets hope the Obama healthcare shuts down.

A sneeze or was she calling someone
I was at the Asian food store Park and Shop in Cleveland Tuesday. It is so amazing their language. Its hard to describe, it almost makes you crazy when you are in a room with all of them talking at once. This one lady I thought was calling her son but I saw her blow her nose. So it must of been achoo I heard not ah choo.

Going out on a limb here
I know we are three years away before the next presidential election so file this one away for future reference. The way the Dems are bailing out could this doom Obama from being a 2 term president? I am not meaning by being defeated by a Republican candidate, which is also very possible, but by someone inside the ranks of the Democratic Party. I don't think I can ever remember a presidency as this. If it gets much worse, heres my going out on a limb, I predict that Hillary will ride to the rescue to unify the party and challenge him. Pat Buchanan did it against President Bush Sr. which weakened his presidency and invigorated the Conservatives, Hillary can do the same for the Democrats and liberals. She has a big enough ego and the party and Dems still like her. BUT Obama has an even bigger ego and would fight it tooth and nail. But its my prediction so Republicans be prepared.

I know some of you won't agree with this but I got to thinking of how Teddy Kennedy died of brain cancer and Murtha died pfrom gall bladder surgery. This verse came to mind: Do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked. Face it, the Liberal policies are far from Godly. Jesus came to set the captives free and they want to put us back into bondage.

Value Time
I recently bought a jar of tomato sauce and corn bread muffins made by Value Time. When in a hurry I buy any cheap jar sauce and doctor it. You know, brown meat, Italian seasonings, wine etc.... But this jar from Value Time was the pits. I wasted a good pork chop on it. No matter how much seasonings I added it still tasted like bad ketchup. The cornbread muffins were OK but the package only made 5. 5? I never heard of anything coming in 5 other than the Jackson's. Maybe thats why it was so cheap they left out one.

Cleveland is the Polka capital
I was invited to the Polka Hall of Fame in Euclid by Cecilia Dolgan this evening. They were opening a new exhibit in honor of Johnny Vadnal. I did work for Cecelia which came as a referral through her sister in law which came through Angelos Beauty salon that I maintain. The last time I was at Cecilia's we were talking about Cleveland and Polka groups of the past. She was modest and didn't speak much of herself. I went home and did some research on her and realized she is very prominent in the Cleveland Polka scene and has cut 10 records, one of which is in my record collection, its titled Cecilia sings in Polka Town U.S.A. made back in the 60's. Do a search for it online. Maybe no big deal to you but I like connections like that.

Mayor Cervenek of Euclid wants to charge for trash removal, street light fee's and instal red light and speed cameras to balance the budget. When I asked him how can I pay for Euclid's demands he said run my business better. I got it!!!! I will charge my tenants a porch light fee, instal a camera in the house and every time they run down the hall charge them. By the way Euclid has issued a new summons. Stay tuned I will be needing ALL of you again real soon to get the word out if I go back to jail.

Hope you enjoyed this and found it informative.
Gotta GoGo!!

Euclid in the news again, pencil sharpeners this time

Cleveland topped another list for worst cities. This one for weather. The good news though is that Cleveland is still considered a city.

Euclid wants to instal red lights camera's. As a pilot program they have installed them in pencil sharpeners. Hmmmm, maybe the real point of the story is the city needs to be led. Think about that for a second, its puny.

Seriously though, how many more scandals and bad policies can a city endure. Its almost weekly that Euclid is in the paper, radio or tv. I am telling you, white flight and foreclosures are only part of the problem.

Carey's political humor for February 2010

What does Toyota and Obama have in common?
There's no stopping a Toyota and theres no stopping Obama from spending.

Due to extreme cold and snow, EGore announced his calculations were off.
Global warming doesn't start until next year.

Washington DC has received so much snow that the government shutdown.
Finally Congress can experience what they have given us for years... a snow job.

Sarah Palin got caught with a cheat sheet written on her hand.
But nobody bothered to check Senator John Edward's hand for girls phone numbers.

Really though whats the big deal? Sarah had a few words scribbled on her hand and Obama
uses a TelePrompTer. Tell me whats the difference?

The city of Euclid announced it will charge residents a street light fee. I say shut them off.
Lets light candles and hold a vigil.

Euclid also wants to charge residents a trash fee. I am against that also.
We need the trash to burn for heat since we can't afford utilities because of taxes and fees.

Euclid could become known as the city of drive-bys. They want to instal traffic cameras
to raise revenue. If they do instead of driving through Euclid people will just... drive by.

A Closer Look at the State of the Union 2010

Its been a week since the State of the Union Address but it is still very important to take a closer look at it. What I am worried about is that President Obama will tone down his positions and sound more of a moderate until after the elections, and the Tea Party and populist anger will subside or possibly abandon their cause and will be willing to give him and the Democratic party another chance. We can not let this happen, America can not afford a two term presidency from this man. We must unite and fight back against socialism on all levels.
I also wanted to be fair in my review and as unbiased as possible about the State of the Union Address so I did not read or view any commentaries. I was not able to watch the speech but did read it twice, line by line and slowly. The first time I did it seemed it was OK but there were a few red flags. The second time I read it the faults and inaccuracies really jumped out. I encourage you to read it.
So instead of giving yet another review of how good or bad it was I am going to hi-light paragraphs that showcase how much of a socialist, globalist and liar President Obama is. There is possibly other paragraphs or phrases you could pick out but these are the ones that bothered me the most.
Taken from the State of the Union 2010
But to create more of these clean energy jobs, we need more production, more efficiency, more incentives. And that means building a new generation of safe, clean nuclear power plants in this country. It means making tough decisions about opening new offshore areas for oil and gas development.
Red flag number 1! Don't believe him. CNN Sun August 3, 2008. "When I'm president, I intend to keep in place the moratorium here in Florida and around the country that prevents oil companies from drilling off Florida's coasts," Obama told reporters in Jacksonville in late June.
Obama campaigned against McCain with the opposite stance of opening up areas for oil exploration. Oil prices have been steadily rising once again. He has had a whole year to reverse the ban and hasn't done it. Now we are suppose to believe him?

Red Flag number 2 It means continued investment in advanced biofuels and clean coal technologies. And, yes, it means passing a comprehensive energy and climate bill with incentives that will finally make clean energy the profitable kind of energy in America

If this alludes to the Cap & Trade legislation be worried, very worried. A quote from Senator Voinovich ....if this would pass there would be pocket-numbing decreases in household incomes

Red Flag number 3.
Third, we need to export more of our goods. Because the more products we make and sell to other countries, the more jobs we support right here in America. So tonight, we set a new goal: We will double our exports over the next five years, an increase that will support 2 million jobs in America. To help meet this goal, we're launching a national export initiative that will help farmers and small businesses increase their exports, and reform export controls consistent with national security.

The first problem we have is what does America make that we can export? The other point is why are we so worried about exporting? Why not build it here and buy our own products? Why don't we rescind some of these trade deals that dump cheap and dangerous imports on our shores? You want to help farmers, stop food from entering made in China. This is nothing more than globalism!

And that's why we'll continue to shape a Doha trade agreement that opens global markets, and why we will strengthen our trade relations in Asia and with key partners like South Korea and Panama and Colombia.
Key partners like Panama and Colombia? Obama was against trade with Panama because of being known as a tax haven for corporations. In fact Obama cosponsored a bill with Sen. Carl Levin and Sen. Norm Coleman titled The Stop Tax Haven Abuse Act which has Panama listed.
And.... From the CFR website: In a March 2008 speech, Obama has also criticized the U.S.-South Korea FTA, which he said is "bad for American workers." The deal "would give Korean exports essentially unfettered access to the U.S. markets.
Now he wants to trade with S. Korea. Which Obama do we believe?

Part 2 next posting.
