Real Estate in North East Ohio - Did government do it?

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 10/18/2013 - 12:22.

If you own real estate in North East Ohio - in many, many communities - your real estate may be valueless.  In fact, your real estate may be a financial  liability.

How did this happen?    

Has our corrupt, ignorant, and inept local governments caused this massive loss in equity?

Is it Rust Belt deterioration?

Federal banking policy?

Or is it "market forces"?  Racism?

Janet Moore - May Show art not well recorded

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 10/16/2013 - 13:58.

When I visited a friend recently I asked about this painting and was told that it was a May Show entry called "Starfish" painted by Janet Moore.   A sticker on the back of the masonite board confirmed that this painting was from the 38th May Show held in 1956.

They want to be above the law - The International Criminal Court (ICC) - Desmond Tutu (also 757 brayton crimnal gang family)

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Wed, 10/09/2013 - 21:19.

In just 2 days time, African leaders could kill off a great institution, leaving the world a more dangerous place. 

The International Criminal Court (ICC) is the world’s first and only global court to adjudicate crimes against humanity. But leaders of Sudan and Kenya, who have inflicted terror and fear across their countries, are trying to drag Africa out of the ICC, allowing them the freedom to kill, rape, and inspire hatred without consequences.

Unsustainable Retirement Budgets for Homeowners with No Mortgages; Inflated costs of living force them into poverty

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Tue, 10/08/2013 - 14:15.

Governmental leadership in collaboration with the local not for profit industry have failed the public at large in 'planning' at multiple levels by completely disregarding demographic data that has forever been readily available to them in order to protect the residents in our community. Gentrification has been like gasification in Cleveland, Ohio.

Cuyahoga County leadership sells property taxes like a heroin junkie trying to get a quick fix

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Mon, 10/07/2013 - 23:34.

Cuyahoga County fiscal management is like a street junkie selling anything possible to sustain its bad habits............and to stay alive and afloat in a fiscally irresponsible and negligent format. The high of getting debts- it cannot afford -paid only lasts for small periods...so they'll need to continue selling off delinquent property taxes and assets to sustain their responsibilities enough to appear like everything is normal. What's the long term plan to balance the budget, reduce fiscal mismanagement, and stabilize our local economy?

Scrapper's Life in Cleveland, Ohio

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 10/02/2013 - 15:17.


With the Federal Government shut down, these two fellows were not able to visit Washingon, DC - so instead they are cruising the streets of Cleveland picking up anything metal - an old stove, the lawmower you left out, aluminum street signs, etc.   

Not having enough money for a rope or tie down straps, the top half of their load went onto the pavement in the intersection.

Submitted by mabeldog on Mon, 09/30/2013 - 15:59.

 In the Brooklyn Centre battle against the city of Cleveland over WC Reed field, I have been researching property transfers on West 15th street.

FEMA Readies 100,000 Person National Disaster Medical System Mobilization For 1,000 Locations (Video) (tremont-cleveland etc.

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Wed, 09/18/2013 - 19:02.

More and more people are wondering what does the government know that they aren’t telling the masses? What are they are preparing for? Some type of pandemic? A terrorist attack they know is going to happen but haven’t bothered to inform the public? Is it ISON? 

The video below shows massive preparations being made for a 100,000 person national disaster system mobilization team,  for 1,000 locations, on just 48 hours notice.

WARD 14 Politics....the real statistic after the primary 2013....68% against Brian Cummins

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Wed, 09/11/2013 - 01:54.

Let me understand this......707 people voted against incumbant, Brian Cummins out of 1028....68.77% of the voters were against him...but he still won?

I think it's time to really consider how you may have won the primary and potentially will win the General Election.........but Perhaps it is time to do the real math where the Voters spoke loudly. What is going wrong with your position in the Ward 14.... think about it Brian Cummins...Soul search about that math.....it says alot.

I would think this information is in the public interest. More government snooping, prying, control without any public input.
