Grove of walnut trees in late fall - north east Ohio

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Thu, 01/31/2013 - 01:19.

Some people want to own a new expensive car, some people want to have a bigger house, some people are angling for a yacht....

Personally, I covet a grove  like these mature walnut trees- and not for lumber!

Spectacularly beautiful.

Roldo tells it straight re: Corporate "sports" in Cleveland and across the US

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 01/29/2013 - 22:34.

 Roldo is one of the very few who see through the fog of "civic loyalty" BS regarding corporate for-profit-like-any-other-corporation sports. 

Why should the "naming rights" income from the publicly owned stadium in Cleveland go to anyone other than the citizens of Cleveland?

Equal protection - all US State's abortion laws apply only to one gender - this violates our constitution -

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 01/22/2013 - 18:34.

Why is it that no state or federal abortion/anti abortion legislation applies to men?

How is it constitutional to have a "law" which discriminates between sexuality?   Where is that distinction in the constitution?

To be equitable we need to remove laws which invade a female's gender or install laws that invade every male's gender.

The Solution to Pollution is Dilution - Fracking discharge fluids as road de-icer - Spread the WEALTH!

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Mon, 01/21/2013 - 20:12.

 Regulation?  (whether nukes, guns or chemicals or anything else)

Human activity?  (where profit always pulls towards the Devil)

And what you will find is that once the secret chamber is opened,  it's "safe" contents will spread everywhere. 

There will be no lung, land, glass of drinking water, or river untouched. 

Every chemical that is pushed down into a fracking gas well will end up on the surface of our community  -  will end up in our water, in our dinner, in us.

Lithium battery fire in Boeing Dreamliner while empty on Boston tarmac - not a problem?

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 01/12/2013 - 00:07.

 When I heard that the Boeing 787 had filled with smoke, and that the source had been a short circuited/over heated/ lithium ion battery pack in the underbelly, the first though I had was ValueJET Everglades crash....

In the Value Jet crash 110 people went head first into the Everglades because chemical oxygen generators (small metal cans), improperly shipped on the plane, had gone off and overheated tires which ignited in the hold.

Buying a (narrow) house in Toronto

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 01/11/2013 - 21:43.

 While real estate in the City of Cleveland falls apart vacant and ransacked of any type of metal - copper, cast iron, steel, aluminum, brass (water meters go first), in Toronto, Ontario, Canada you can't get a house for under $400,000 - and you always have to bid above the asking price- or you are wasting your time.

Zubin Mehta states it clearly - castrate rapists

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 12/30/2012 - 21:57.

 Rape is an extremely violent violaton of a person. 

In India over the last 10 days the world has witnessed a country in the throws of resolving the proper response of society to rape.

Today, Zubin Mehta spoke clearly: castrate the rapists.

A very serious proposal, and one that if exercised in a rush could be wrong and permanent...but if exercised accurately

Seems fair to me...

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 12/14/2012 - 19:32.

 Homeland security do you read me?

So surely more guns is the resolution TO A FEW GUNS.

PS - my kid wants a gun.   A Lugar.   has it picked out. 

Should be a subsidy for these young folk....

We need to be like Syria!

NO! THAT'S TOTAL BS!

Clear as Black and White - "disadvantaged" neighborhood pc of Clark Freeway is back and has 13 signal intersections -

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 12/07/2012 - 13:46.

The Clark Freeway was stopped from going through the Buckeye-Kinsman-Shaker Lakes  40+ years ago - but the fair minded folks at University Circle and the Cleveland Clinic  have the desire to spend 350 million of taxpayer money to impose the western half of the Clark Freeway through the Disadvantaged Triangle.

Let's CLIMB the Cliff - and ALSO get rid of Mortgage deduction and Charitable deduction

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 12/07/2012 - 13:27.

 The country has a great opportunity - to reduce military spending, to reduce the country's budged deficit, and to bring greater economic equality across our citizenry - and our legislators don't need to do a thing.   

The "CLIFF"!

But it isn't something we are going to fall over effortlessly - it is a cliff we need to climb up.

Let's go do it!

Fiscal CLIMB

"unpublish" is an Admin option - rather than a user deleting their content

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 12/07/2012 - 11:56.

FYI  Realneo Users:     

If you are of a mind to delete your blog, or delete your content which has comments below it - there is an option which administration has that the user doesn't have.    

That option is to "unpublish" the content.

Not on Interstate 90 in NEOhio.  (image above - two lanes - no shoulder either side - just Jersey barriers - where will snow be shoved?)
