I love the insults by the overeducated to the lowly Clevelanders and welfare people..... It's amusing to hear their hardworking slights to those who get assistance..but they neglect to mention that there are over 10,000 not for profits in Cleveland and Cleveland Heights alone; let alone the totals for Cuyahoga County!!!! That's so amazing to hear them slam dunk the needy! This is my response to some Cleveland.com blogs....related to the story about Continental Airlines...It'll probably get deleted...but that's life in Cuyahoga County and Cleveland, OH!!!! CONTINENTAL WANTS TO SEE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IMPROVE IN THE NEXT 2 YEARS LOCALLY....OR THEY ARE PULLING OUT OF CLEVELAND...SO, PLEASE START YOUR BUSINESSES NOW TO MAKE THEM HAPPY AND HELP SAVE THE JOBS OF MANY MORE AIRLINE EMPLOYEES LOCALLY....
1) Welfare Mentality: HUMOR for all of you....has been DRIVEN BY THE HIGH AND MIGHTY, WISE, PHILANTHROPIC INDUSTRY OF NORTHEAST OHIO.....YES, BY THOSE WHO DEPEND ON THE QUOTAS OF THE NEEDY TO SURVIVE.... So, please quit telling yourself that these folks are all just lazy... Know your demographics before you slam dump the entire populace.
2) Understand the world of "EMPLOYERS" who are too greedy to offer full time positions with benefits...in Cleveland Ohio and the network of EMPLOYERS WHO PAY WAGES UNDER THE TABLE to the WORKING POOR.... so that they can receive WELFARE BENEFITS that often include MEDICAL & FOODSTAMPS...
3) PLEASE NOTE WHERE SOME OF THE BEST ABUSERS LIVE....ESPECIALLY the PEPPER PIKE RESIDENT WHO RECEIVED OVER $15K PER MONTH IN DIVIDENDS AND GOT WELFARE!!! (DON'T WORRY-WELFARE CAUGHT THEM AFTER YEARS OF SCAMMING THE SYSTEM!!!)
4) Over 320,000 of the 1.3 milion people in Cuyahoga County are suffering from mental illness..and the exact number of elderly/retired/senior/disabled citizens that are a portion of our inner city population is also something you should calibrate into the system of abuses...like how the inflation has outgrown their ability to afford the basic living needs of rent, utilities, and food....which puts them into choosing between affording food or life necessary medications and rent in many cases....
5) Cleveland Public Schools.... CMSD..... My child attends an excellent, AWARD WINNING CMSD with an extraordinarily awesome School Parent Organization with lots of community involvement, progress, and proactive parents... Parents are disengaged when all levels of LEADERSHIP insult them with GENTRIFICATION that disrespects their humanity. I know plenty of parents without degrees who are at the school daily and actively engaged in their child's education, extra curriculars, and life. Quit trying to treat low income and undereducated parents like they don't deserve basic human respect...it's simply not conducive to productivity.
6) Big Government: Cuyahoga County itself learned that they could build big government by inflating property taxes (FRAUDULENTLY), providing a system of chronies to work at these new government jobs, then contracting out the same work in the same deal...like property tax foreclosures through tax certificate sales....citizens were being taxed on all ends...And businesses too... The corrupt ATTITUDE that permeated our region became a pathetic, abusive, and collusive system that violated every resident while only benefiting the few who could pay to play...
7) CORRUPT ATTITUDE: Somehow-along the way--it became okay to step all over whoever these elected officials and public servants wanted to...and they destroyed uncountable citizen's ambitions to do business in this community. Permits, City Inspectors, Board of Zoning Appeals, Tax Abatements, Empower Zone HUD Grants, Community Development HUD Gants, and uncountable other levels were infiltrated with this CORRUPT ATTITUDE....and it IMPLODED our community at large... There was no accountability, just a free for all those players...and their buddies... meanwhile, the REALNEO citizens who stood up against these betrayers were slandered, code enforced to death, and (steered) run out of town by that regime...or they learned to be corrupt too.... leaving behind a select group of folks who just survived the madness of years of corruption...
8) Immigrants and Transplants: When I was in high school, I heard a government teacher-MR. STRICKLAND....state that "multiculturalism was going to be the death of the USA...." I have forever disagreed with that concept. I have been blessed to travel our world, to speak multiple languages, and serve our military....and I am honored to have both Native American and Scottish Immigrant ancestors...My family came here from both Eastern PA and Appalachia.... I am honored to have some of the most wonderful "HILLBILLY" roots around...and the best "IGNORANT HILLBILLY" Friends around.. While those "INFORMALLY" educated folks may not speak proper/eloquent English... They are the best recyclers of second hand/used/trash items in this community. Many of them support your STEEL/METAL INDUSTRY DAILY by going around town recycling curbside trash-reducing landfills and feeding their families from homegrown gardens which they plant annually. They are proud human beings of all cultures-hispanics, black, white... from diverse backgrounds... and yet they are constantly trying to overcome the diverse dynamics of stonewalling, blackballing, and gentrification... created by a world of philanthropists and a local BIG BUSINESS OF THE LEGAL SYSTEM/JAILS.... Are you familiar with the quotas required to keep these jails in business locally and how much our local PHILANTHROPIC COMMUNITY MAKES to provide "SOCIAL SERVICES" to these folks? (Yes, there's lots of criminals that deserve to be in jail...no doubt...but there are tons of low income traffic offenders who keep the payrolls paid for uncountable public servants--WHILE THE JUDGES DENY COMMUNITY SERVICE TO THEM WHEN THEY CANNOT EVEN AFFORD AN ATTORNEY!!!! Do you know the quotas of suspended licenses in Cuyahoga County? BIG BUSINESS...for the government... Still many folks come from the "RURAL" regions to look for work in the city...and there are not many "FACTORY" jobs left... But the "ATTITUDE" which has been used on these people has become more and more gentrified through the years and STEERED them back out of town...
9) SOCIAL SERVICE PROGRAMS: YOUR PHILANTHROPIC (HIGHLY EDUCATED FOLKS) HAVE LEARNED THAT IN ORDER TO GET RECURRING PAYROLL/ADMINISTRATION FUNDING WHICH PAYS THEIR SALARIES VIA BOTH MEDICAID AND GRANTS FROM HIGHER ECHELONS BASED ON THE 'QUOTAS OF NEED".... THAT THEY CANNOT EMPOWER THE NEEDY TO IMPROVE THEIR LIVES.... SO THEY DIVIDE AND CONQUER THE POOR WITH A BUREAUCRATIC SYSTEM OF LONG LINES, REDUNDANT APPLICATIONS FOR SERVICES, REDIRECTIONS, REFERRALS, AND INEFFECTIVE PROGRAMS THAT ARE NOT "truly" MEANT TO help the poor...but to keep them defeated and hope that they will go find a job....WITHOUT QUOTAS OF NEED....THE PHILANTHROPIC SYSTEM LOCALLY would be dramatically reduced...
10) RAPE: A huge crime in our community...check out the stats....RETURNING FORMERLY INCARCERATED INDIVIDUALS (OVER 10,000/yr) ...without any prospectives for employment...b/c they have not been provided any kind of productive quantitative skills or training in prison... and yet those same felons are restricted from opportunities to build businesses, discriminated against from getting housing & employment, and their families and the community are left with the burden of keeping them above water.... Yes, many "criminals" change and reform themselves against all odds...but reforming does not raise up the rest of society from those STIGMAS of being in PRISON or committing crimes...So, Who would provide jobs for that population???? CONTRACTORS....
10) CONTRACTOR BUSINESSES: Many Government Contractors are getting business rehabbing houses for our local not for profit/community development/landbank industry....but their lowly employees are definitely not getting that PREVAILING WAGE... It's a joke...NO ACCOUNTABILITY! Meanwhile, For Profit rehabbers are denied tax abatements, resources, or public resources to help them keep their businesses above water.....how comical...the NFP's get $$$$ and the For Profit folks pay for it all! Interesting how the For Profit Entreprenuers are the ones who keep our world and economy spinning.
11) REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY: Look, the City of Cleveland leaders want to steer out the less than desirables and build a big GREEN PARK and URBAN FARMING INDUSTRY for the leftover population to make our community "ATTRACTIVE" for the rest of the world...They really don't want more HARDWORKING & AMBITIOUS "IMMIGRANTS" getting in their way... Understand the program that they have DICTATED to the locals for all too long...
12) Elected Leaders have decimated the "PARTY SYSTEM" locally by taking away open, transparent, and interactive communication from the residents.They have deliberately chosen to neglect communicating their plans (Both long term/short term) with the citizens so that they can overtly do their dirty bidding behind our backs. That game has been portrayed on the public for so long that our local leadership learned powerful ways of intimidating, retaliating, and violating anyone who got in their way....CHECK OUT THE CITY OF CLEVELAND HOUSING COURT SYSTEM.... Over 11, 000 evictions last year...Average income of residents just over $900/month with 51% of that being for rent!!! Economics and affordability were not in the plan for the region....
13) GREED was the only motive in town for all too long... The HOUSING INDUSTRY:
14) ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT: A MAJORITY of Cuyahoga County's budget goes into Social Services etc... Now, if less than 10% of our funding is going into ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT...THEN HOW ARE WE EVER GOING TO INVITE ANYONE FROM A SMALL BUSINESS OWNER TO A FRANCHISE OWNER TO DO BUSINESS IN OUR COUNTY??? Until recently, unless you were CORRUPT along the line-doing business in our town was PREDOMINANTLY a joke....(PAY TO PLAY!) For anyone who was not "CONNECTED" it was next to impossible to start up a business here...
15) BUSINESS INVESTMENT LOCALLY:
The real estate industry has been decimated by an ineffective community development network that works collusively with city inspectors, Code enforcement officers, housing court officials, city council leaders (vying for funding) and in direct reaction to THEIR VERY OWN PLANNING OBJECTIVES that in most cases-are not supported by a MAJORITY MEMBERSHIP OF RESIDENTS in those local areas they cover...but it's a big business for the "CONNECTED". Now, we have the NOT FOR PROFIT, PHILANTHROPIC LAND BANK to look forward to using million$ to tear down selective plots along the way and accomplish their final mission of revamping our region with their buddy system of pay to play contractors on stand by alert...some of which are tax evaders and no longer registered to do business legitimately in Ohio.
Hey....WHY DON'T YOU MAKE THE CLEVELAND CONTINENTAL AIRLINES THE NOT FOR PROFIT, PHILANTHROPIC BRANCH OF THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY AND GET MILLIONS TO SEND ALL OUR POOR FOLKS FROM CLEVELAND AROUND THE GLOBE????? THEN CUYAHOGA COUNTY CAN GIVE YOU FULL TAX ABATEMENT AND KEEP YOUR JOBS LOCAL??? BESIDES...WE THE POOR NEED A VACATION FROM ALL THIS CORRUPTION.... PRAYERFULLY, THE NEW LEADERSHIP WILL FINALLY HEED THE NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE WHO DO WANT MORE IN THEIR LIVES THAN TO CHASE THEIR TAILS...
While I have been a workaholic, a volunteer, a careprovider, a parent, and a citizen activist...I recognize your dire desire to tell me to "GET A JOB!" Well, I'd like to return to the military active duty and would rather die for my country than to work next to corruption daily!
If you all want to spur ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT in NORTHEAST OHIO....open up the doors of transparent accountability, open public government contract bidding, and ABATEMENTS and INCENTIVES that spur economic development. Start loaning small businesses start up funding less than $100,000 (NOT OVER $100k which has been defeatest!)... Be reasonable in offering felons opportunities to partake in society and start businesses locally. REVAMP the COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT REGIME of CUYAHOGA COUNTY AND THE CITY OF CLEVELAND. Revamp the Party System that has uncountable vacancies in their PRECINCT LEADERSHIP...and QUIT HAVING CLOSED DOOR MEETINGS THAT DEPRIVE THE PUBLIC OF ACCESS & TRANSPARENCY.
In closing...the FAMILY UNIT of Cleveland Ohio has dispersed outward to the suburbs. The City School system has always lacked any tracking of transient families-particularly those plagued with socio economic problems including domestic violence, child abuse, and low income issues. The communication with families by city leaders that builds people up has declined due to self interests of the leaders... They have not collaborated with social workers to reduce problems... There are way to many chiefs trying to reinvent the wheels of the basics of the family structure....like a sense of community. Our city has survived generations of bussing, corruption, and steering that violated the public trust and faith... Anyone who lays judgment on the "REMNANTS" of Clevelanders who have remained after all these collective challenges have been placed in our paths should really send in a CHEERLEADING SQUAD to REVITALIZE OUR AMERICAN SPIRT...ALONG WITH A RIFLE SQUAD TO SHOOT THE VIOLATORS OF OUR HUMANITY!!!
BEST WISHES CONTINENTAL AIRLINES with getting the leaders of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County to really heed your warnings... But, truthfully speaking... You'd be better off doing a PUBLIC NOTICE to the actual citizens of Cuyahoga County at large...notifying them personally (not through the PD) about your position on these matters as they are the ones who need motivated to embark on investing within our community.... Offer start up business owners in Cleveland Ohio incentives like 1 roundtrip ticket/year for first 5 years in business... trust me... You'll see dramatic increases in business investment locally with some type of citizen activism being invited and inspired by your consideration for the people!!! www.realneo.us/blogs/angelnWard14
Remember...leadership should empower, motivate, inspire, and promote healthy opportunities for citizens to proactively engage in a sense of community.... We the people have been violated by systematic abuses which were driven by the quotas of need to build their big government...Quit blaming the needy for these dynamics. Hold your leaders accountable for transforming the American Spirit through denegration, division, and devouring corruption... Call it a cheap restitution for years of corruption...and change the playing field by empowering those needy families to finally have a voice of leadership that truly invites them to partake in achieving their American Dreams without being defeated at the door!!!!
COMEDY: Heck, Cleveland is a decimated Ghosttown....Must of the drugbuyers on my street show up in brand new cars----from the burbs!!!! Moreover, the deviant married guys who meet their boyfriends outside of my house turn out to be from the burbs too... Got some great videos lately! (Trying to stop them from parking on our street to conduct their AFFAIRS!) Comical! At night, you can drive all over the near westside and the activity is extraordinarily minimal... Seems like a ghosttown. Yes, there's lots of drug dealers...and even more FUNCTIONAL, CLOSETED, ELITIST ADDICTS who keep them in business from the burbs! The city is not all the bad anymore....you can even hang out at Edgewater while our Police Chief jogs for exercise around the bike path--meanwhile other men 'get it on' near the playground!!!
Cleveland is such a beautiful place to be.... parks, museums, world class sports teams, philanthropists, strips of bars for the yuppies, puppy parks, hospitals, exceptional educational institutions, arts districts, and uncountable abandoned homes, vacant lots, and closed businesses.... Our people are quotas for the big scheme of leadership that enjoys the prosperity of corruption at galas around town of collusion! What a wonderful world....and Please, don't forget to visit the MIRACLE ON WEST 34th STREET OF DEMOLITION!!!! We wouldn't want you to miss the party! Thanks for generations of political leadership that built us up to be known as the great mistake by the lake!!!
