so...this guy is advocating a "separate but equal" area for whitey in Ohio?

Go ahead, I am in favor of separating the "blue" areas from the "red states" good luck with the food,fuel, and energy.

I can live without a museum. Can you live without corn?

Once you tell the corn guys that you're taking away their subsidies, they'll be with us in a minute.

I guess we could all carve out our own little utopia. I would make sure mine would not include white people who hate white people. I think I'd also leave out people who treat animals better than they treat fellow humans. No one would be obliged to have a conversation with my dog when I'm out walking him. I would never go to war with the neighboring utopias. I would outlaw bumper stickers, too. I would not allow anyone to paint their house bright blue.

He seems like a cool guy. Loved his first Cleveland video.

Rock on. Looking forward to the video!

America's corn farmers have been benefiting from annual federal subsidies of around $6 billion in recent years, all in the name of ethanol used as an additive for the nation's vehicles.

That ends on Jan. 1, when the companies making ethanol will lose a tax credit of 46 cents per gallon.

Can't wait for the interview O'Brien.
I like this guy.

Hey, Mike, I don't hate white people with appropriate senses of humor. Kinda like Mike Polk up there.

Mike Polk. When we go back to Ohio we are kinda shocked at the waistlines and general slack-jawed nature of many of the residents. Corn syrup. Oh, yeah. Free market. Yeah, right.

Ciao, Erin. I love this video and will share your post on FB for all my Ohio friends.

ATTN Twinks and everyone else from the Rust Belt: Dig Polk in one of his "Man in the Box" episodes on Ohio weather.

Speaking of Rust...
Admidst all this nostalgia my geriatic synapses held hands for a minute and realized there was no mention at this here blog of Mike Rowe campaigning for Romney. Talk about dirty jobs.

so Mr Polk advocates gerrymandering state boundaries. Good we could use that in most states.

Bill said...

There was plenty of Mike Rowe here.

6 yrs is a long time but I can understand the amount of work you'd have to go through with those pics. Good luck with everything.
