If every day my neighbor threw his coffee cup with his name on it in my bushes along the public sidewalk in front of my house I could sue him and prevail. 

But if my neighbor sold coffee in mugs with my neighbor's name on the mug, and the the mug ended up everyday in my bushes along the public sidewalk in front of my house I couldn't sue him and prevail.

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 11/22/2013 - 12:01.

The image above shows the dozens of spam "user" applications which came into realneo admin this morning.  

Some malicious programmer has automated the submission of phony user applications to Realneo.  

This new problem requires that Admin close the present application process temporarily.  

A changed new user application process will be instituted.

Welcome to the Funny Farm....

 Welcome to the Funny Farm...

Where all the Crazies from the Big Cities flocked to escape the corruption...

Where they could live off the land if needed and not worry about the stress of city life...

Where they could work themselves to death chopping wood year round to heat their homes in the winter. 

Where they could dig deep to find well water or look for a natural mountain water spring to sustain life. 

Where they could barter and trade junk to survive.

We must respect the "Program" that is imploding the quality of life herein and the "Players"....

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Sun, 11/10/2013 - 03:05.

 It's absurd to have a heart for the City of Cleveland these days...It hit me that our "sense of community" is simply a chronic disease of attending enumerable forums to attempt to react to the conditions that continue to deteriorate while finding small senses of purpose in that fight. We used to believe that we were making a difference by engaging the disengaged. Somehow; many of us missed the boat.... The game in this city is not one of creating a "HOMETOWN"-that's a facade from eras long ago...

Now there are not too many things other people have that I am jealous of or covet...

I can wield a camera around pretty handily, but, I certainly wish I could paint like Jane.

This is a painting of her veterinarian - with a small Norman Rockwell imitation scene thrown in at the lower RH corner right in front of the pointing hand .

VOTER TURNOUT IN OHIO...Lobbying the legislators to compare dead people, etc to the rolls....

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Thu, 11/07/2013 - 18:09.

 When someone dies; a death certificate is filed. How come they don't have to send a copy to the board of elections or bmv? 

I mean; a simple checklist would simplify the world around us and remove so much corruption..... seriously. 

Right now they are demolishing houses in Cleveland..........those house addresses need to be sent to the BOE to be removed from the voter rolls. Hello.... 

As long as there is no requirements and accountability; there will be too much room for error and CORRUPTION....


woot, woot.

TY CLE - Perpetuate the Second Class - Parasitism

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 11/07/2013 - 10:27.

 Thank you to my neighbors who voted in the same crud who perpetuate the cycle of abandonment and parasitism we live with in NEO.  Federal funds can't pour into a region unless there is an entrenched class of citizens deemed "second class."  

Well - this is our future - warehousing our elderly and the offspring of any child considered less fortunate because they had the misfortune to be labeled "Urban."

Good luck with your investment strategies!!!

Reflecting on Early Childhood Grandpa's Wagon Rides to Town....

The journey of life can be such an amazing experience....to love and lose or to live and die....it's all so trivial but so seriously worth the effort to endure. What's it all worth at the end of the day? Well; that's all simply a matter of opinion. I know my personal blessings and I know the value which is significant to my existence...this is all that matters to me anymore. I cannot project my expecations upon others to realize the value of time and of things that money cannot buy. I simply must accept that state of mind in the middle. Tis' life!
