Drupal Cleveland Meetup at CSU

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Thu, 11/15/2012 - 12:36.

Back in 2004 Norm Roulet rolled out Realneo at Case's REI Tuesdays.   At the time Case was struggling trying to communicate on the web with  wikis - wikis were awkward and difficult to use and inspired Norm to introduce Realneo at REI as a content managment system.  That's when I first became a Realneo User.

What is REALNEO?

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 11/11/2012 - 23:41.

 Realneo is a community of people who fight.   

Fight for Civic Equity.

Realneo is a community of people who, whether they lose that fight, don't recognize that overwhelming obstical.

Lose?  What's that?

Realneo is a community of people who continue to fight not recognizing that they have "lost".

Realneo is a community of thick- headed advocates for equity. 

You can bang us hard on the head, in the wallet, in public, in private - but we don't get that  vibe.

War - Ruined 3 close friends of mine. Veteran's Day 2012

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 11/10/2012 - 22:45.

 I won't finish this post tonight - too tired, too much Jim Blum

Jim is playing music focused on Veteran's day.   

But I have to say, the war in Vietnam ruined the lives of my good friends Bill and Rich, and the Iraq war totally destroyed Victor.  

They all came home.  In their body only.

I'll fill in the details in the coming days.    It's been a long time coming that I should write about this...

Dirty Dealer soon to be kicked hard by Advance Publications

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 11/09/2012 - 18:32.


Advance Publications, which owns the Plain Dealer, isn't making enough money in Cleveland. 

Last summer, several other papers operated by Advance layed off staff and cut the weekly publication days to three.  

The Dirty Dealer's employees are about to start an advertizing campaign in which they will plead to the public in NEO - to not let the Dirty Dealer "fade".

Another civic visual which graphs spoiled ballots and race in Cuyahoga County in the 2004 presidential election.   The spoilage is purportedly related to machine ballot counting failures/defects/sabotage.

You can find the study here on Wikipedia.

Cleveland SCENE's Michael Roberts - DROPS ANCHOR on TAX INCREASE ISSUE 108

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 11/06/2012 - 09:45.

 The Scene accurately describes the miasma which is the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority.    

The silly park on a sliding hill, the mud sucking from the snaky river bottom, the eye candy "bridge".    But all these issues are red herrings.    These "projects" are the "visuals" which the corrupt Port Authority wants the public to focus on -   easy to understand - and vote up the new tax.

"Land Studios" is a Joe Roman GCP fraud - prove me wrong....Drop Anchor on Port scam issue 108

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Mon, 11/05/2012 - 00:06.

 Now anyone who has been following for the last few weeks will think that Buster had flipped his wig.   

Why is Buster so crazy about downing the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority (CCCPA)?  Issue 108  ( I write all that out so that Google searches will optimise on Realneo) - which they are doing!

So I see this Land Studio which is "stongly supporting Issue 108" and I think: bs.  

Land Studio is Greater Cleveland Partnership!  Yo!

Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority - conduit for TAFS - Fitch Rating dropped Port in 2010 - DROP ANCHOR Issue 108

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 11/03/2012 - 12:02.


What the Port Authority won't tell you, is that between all the TIFs that they use to pay for several of the bonds they issue, local municipalities are getting screwed out of tax revenue for their schools and to operate the municipality.   The term TIF  (Tax Increment Financing) is an intentional deception -   funny money terminology - so the public dozes off...

TAX AVOIDANCE FINANCING (TAF) is the honest terminology.

Lead Poison map - Euclid Corridor and East Cleveland are RED -

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 11/02/2012 - 17:30.


Norm Roulet put up a report about lead a few years back on Realneo here.   He included the map above.   

If one considers that the prevailing winds are from the west - then what would be your explaination of the highly lead poisoned RED areas on the map?

Corruption is King in Cuyahoga!

Bob Peto, image above (from DIRTY DEALER)

Knowing that just about every goverment agency in Cuyahoga is corrupt - the sollution for the future is to do what?   Increase their budgets with a new, bigger tax levy like Issue 108?

Isn't it amazing how gullible we all are?

Global warming (along with gun restriction) are two topics which neither presidential candidate will touch.   Not even mentioned in any debate.

Greek wealth disparity - could be the shot heard 'round the globe

The distribution of wealth is not just an issue here in the US, with Occupy pointing out that there is a "1%" who operate in another atmosphere here in the USA>   

Because Corporations are Global, the 1% (actually much less than 1%) will soon/do now reign financially in every country.

If you try to find certain Cleveland Cuyahoga County Port Authority bonded projects on the Port Authority's web site, they can't be found.

The Port Authority is the master of mis-representation - actually a  master of out right fraud.

Who can tell us what this image is?

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 10/26/2012 - 21:13.

It's all natural, that's for sure.  But what is it?  Who did it?  Why are there different colors?

(get your mind off the election for something educational!)

In a few years, or maybe even months, it will be possible to stuff this image into a search bar, and get back the ID.

Not just "facial recognition", but every image recognition.  Stay tuned.
