Democrat or Republican?

 For one moment; please try to educate an uneducated voter.....

Why should they choose to be a Republican or choose to be a Democrat? Explain with PARTY ONLY format---without divisely using one candidate as an example.

If you had five minutes to empower a voter with factual based splendor why they should support a party; what would you tell them?

 Neo-Liberal Cleveland: The Silence Ends

By Randy Cunningham

            I recently attended a Cuyahoga County Council meeting on the proposed renovation of the Q.  All the usual suspects were there – a bunch of suits salivating for profits, and the building trades, salivating for jobs.  What was unusual was the meeting drew a standing room only crowd, that included activists from the Greater Cleveland Congregations (GCC) who voiced their opposition to the proposal.  The suits talked numbers. The GCC talked about the lives of people in the neighborhoods.

I am just starting to get it together to report on this deadly fire...it took me some time to focus.    The image is a screen shot of my phone.    

Lot's of failings - in old architectural design, lack of fireproofing, wrong brand new totally useless obsolete fire fighting million dollar equipment, lack of hard wired smoke detectors, and on and on.

Similar patterns from very different causes - how's this possible?

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 03/14/2017 - 17:26.

Compare the following two patterns:  The first is a pattern made in insect regurgitated saw dust mining in the cambium under the bark of dead cherry, the second is fresh snow scoured by wind.   Totally different types of creative energy - resulting in very similar patterns.

E.D.E.N.'s PRIVATE HOSPITAL property tax exemption scam

Submitted by mabeldog on Fri, 03/10/2017 - 14:59.

Flush with a "loan" of $889,000 she scored in January from the Community Development Department of the city of Cleveland (whose funding is soon to be eliminated by President Trump's proposed HUD budget cuts), the Emerald Development "Economic" Network's director Elaine Collins (earning over $200,000 per year in salary and benefits) was sitting in the catbird seat. In March she snapped up an office building at 2070 W.

 Realneo.us has been on air for over 11 years (thanks to Norm Roulet for conceiving realneo and thanks to the Drupal coders who put the site together in such a robust and problem free engineering feat!).   Over the 11+ years that I have been involved with realneo and North East Ohio,  certain themes come up again and again (read Roldo for multi generational comparisons),  and certain viewpoints are challenged and one's thoughts are modified.

Relax, Trump is stone cold sane

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Wed, 02/15/2017 - 16:08.
Let me issue the standard disclaimer of psychiatrists who discuss the mental health of public figures: I have not personally examined President Trump.

Now, let me put to rest the concerns of Sen. Al Franken and political commentators John Oliver and Andrew Sullivan and anyone else who publicly or privately has questioned the president’s sanity:

Donald Trump is stone cold sane.

Did POTUS fire Sally Yates because she was on to his USSR connections? Or because Ms. Yates refused to defend exec order?

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 02/14/2017 - 22:41.

 POTUS has been married 3 times.   That's much like someone who I knew involved with Realneo back in 2004.   Very confident, extremely bright.   Massively inventive.

Ready to interview all the local Mayors and civic leaders.  I went along.  Felt pretty cool.   Access.   

Well, that's POTUS too. 

So when I read about Flynn speaking from the Dominican Republic to Russian reps - and his convos were being recorded by the CIA - and Mr. Flynn "resigns", well, I ain't buyin in.
