Wait, We Thought Churchill Downs Was Going To Have To Close Down If It Wasn’t Allowed To Build A Fancy Casino In Louisville?

October 24th, 2012 · Comments Off

We’re closer and closer to hitting our goal and launching our new project. Consider helping make that happen. [Support Our New Project!] Dear Ed Hart: We told you that you were getting screwed by Steve Beshear because of Bruce Lunsford. You knew it. Bruce knew it. And it’s happening again. Yes, they most certainly operate [...]

Parker’ll Save You From Nobama & Public School

May 23rd, 2012 · 9 Comments

Maybe people wouldn’t be freaking out about two tiny parking spots if Louisville were more pedestrian-friendly and more people walked to alleviate their fat problem? [C-J/AKN] A University of Louisville professor doesn’t believe rallies will end violence. Because guess what? They won’t. [FOX41] The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is not backing down on its promise [...]

Fischer Campaign Claims Versus Fischer Reality

December 6th, 2011 · 3 Comments

Here’s what Greg Fischer says about ongoing campaign contributions: Another Fischer contributor was Ed Hart, who gave $1,000 on Jan. 20. Hart is the chief executive for Kentucky Kingdom, which at the time was in the midst of negotiating a $300,000 annual contribution to help reopen the amusement park at the Kentucky Exposition Center. -SNIP- [...]

“Compassionate” Thing Is A White Wash, Right?

November 14th, 2011 · 9 Comments

I have friends involved with this “Compassionate City” thing. Not entirely a bad idea. But it won’t be feasible until Greg Fischer is out of office. Even the people involved roll their eyes over it. What’s compassionate about what he’s not doing with Metro Animal Services? The way he allows Sadiqa and his trust fund [...]

Maybe Metro Council Is Slowly Turning Crazy

November 10th, 2011 · 3 Comments

Is Mary Woolridge as batshit crazy as Judy Green? Really? Alleging the appointment of Attica Scott was rigged? [WFPL] Just a reminder about what’s going down with Cordish and Metro Government. You’ll likely not hear about it much elsewhere. [The 'Ville Voice] The editorial board (Hi, Keith!) once again proves its disconnection from reality by [...]

Thoughts On Last Night’s General Election Results

November 9th, 2011 · 1 Comment

AG Todd P’Pool: Why on earth didn’t you listen? You needed Democrats to win but you refused to do the right thing. You refused to campaign in Louisville, refused to ditch the anti-Obama bullshit and refused to focus on the needs of Kentucky. Every single time you were given good advice, you dismissed it entirely. [...]

We Hear It’s Sunny In Southern Indiana Today

November 9th, 2011 · Comments Off

45 people got cut at this news station. When will similar things start to happen in Louisville? Enjoy your news folks while you can. [DTV] Miss last night’s election results? Check the final numbers out. [Page One] Voter turnout in Kentucky was low but apparently better than expected. [H-L] Metro Councilcritters Kelly Downard and David [...]

Fine, Here Are My Thoughts On The Candidates

November 8th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Several have asked me to post this, so, here you go. My thoughts on the candidates this year. Gubernatorial David Williams: Stupid for not managing his reputation for a decade. Offers solid ideas and an actual plan. Refuses to take political advice and that’s why he’s not going to get any further than his current [...]

Customer Service? What Customer Service, Greg?

November 8th, 2011 · Comments Off

This sort of Section 8 slum lording behavior is prevalent here in Louisville, right? [NHI] Not all social workers in Kentucky are this ridiculously dumb. It’s a shame the bad seeds always taint everyone else. [H-L] When, exactly, can this city quit pretending it supports the Jefferson County Public Schools student assignment plan? [C-J/AKN] Yep, [...]
