ACLU immigrants rights advice - good for all of us to read and remember

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 02/12/2017 - 15:44.

 Please take a minute and review the ACLU's citizen's rights review at this link.   Click through the pages of the ACLU review.    

One suggestion that the ACLU did not make is turn on your telephone voice audio recorder and leave the phone in your pocket - maybe a recording could be helpful later.

Good luck.

 I attended an update meeting for the Towpath Trail held at the Cleveland Metroparks on February 7th, 2017 at the Ohio and Erie Canalway Center. The meeting was a bit of an upset as new trail completion stages for the "Towpath Trail" extension to downtown were released.

Realneo.us domain renewal snaffoo-admin neglected to update email forwarding from domain registrar-apologies for inconvenience

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 02/08/2017 - 14:02.

 Realneo.us was not hacked.    Admin did a hack job!    (and the asteroid Guy mentions didn't help)

The reason a realneo.us name search would not find the realneo.us server is because the domain name had expired.  

Admin did not realize the expiration was approaching because emails which in the past were forwarded to admin from the registrar had been interrupted - no longer forwarded via other terminated domains.  

Admin apologizes for the inconvenience.   At no time was the realneo.us content at risk.

Ohio did not join boughtmilk.com class action alleging collusion between dairy co-ops

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 01/22/2017 - 15:02.

Raising the price of milk by colluding to restrain supply (slaughering 1/2 million dairy cows) is a violation of the Sherman anti-trust act.   BTW, Sherman was a Republican from OHIO!

Open Carry of Machine Guns in Shaker Square - Ohioans exercise second amendment rights!

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 01/22/2017 - 12:01.

How can we be sure these folks weren't just making a large deposit at the PNC bank in Shaker Square?   

Cleveland.com was careful not to mention "Shaker Square", instead refering to the robbery as being "in the 2700 block of South Moreland Blvd.   

Why?   Ad dollars from whom?

Pussy Hat March defines/suggests a new type of democracy without Washington, DC

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 01/21/2017 - 22:05.


All around the world today persons went out and demonstrated.    Millions and millions of people. 

Where were those Americans during the election last fall?

Our democracy focused/set in Washington DC is the problem.   It is obsolete.  It attacts sociopathic persons, mainly men, who go to DC and are then easy prey for the lobby corporations.

Consent Decree

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 01/14/2017 - 09:39.

 Eric J Brewer: Forest Gump is smarter than Mayor Frank Jackson. I'm amazed at how after nearly 12 years in office Jackson doesn't understand that he's been “suckered” by Chief of Police Calvin Williams, Safety Director Michael McGrath and Executive Assistant Martin Flask. As mayor I'd fire all three my first day on the job. I'd hope they had sense enough to resign.

The Neo Liberal City - Cleveland, Ohio

Submitted by Randino on Thu, 01/05/2017 - 20:05.


           January 2017        Author’s Note:     The Neo-Liberal City was an act of dissent that was clandestinely distributed in the early 1990s as what we called Urban Samizdat – after the clandestine critical writings of the old Soviet Union.  It was clandestine because the author and the co-conspirators in the project worked in city government or other venues that would not have received the message of The Neo-Liberal City very kindly.  It was during the administration of Mayor Michael R. White who was notorious for firing people on the whim.  So, discretion was called for. The details described may date it, but the basic bones of what it describes are still the ruling realities of Cleveland. 

Randy Cunningham aka Vincent aka Randino


           This essay is the second of two that were inspired by the recent article in Cleveland magazine, concerning the impact on Cleveland’s neighborhoods of Neighborhood Progress Inc., the non-profit funding institution that has revolutionized the world of non-profit development corporations.  The title of this essay is the Neo Liberal City.  It attempts to move from a focus on NPI, to a broader focus on how Cleveland has and is being reorganized since the end of the Kucinich administration and the resulting consolidation of private power during the Voinovich and White administrations. This essay is not intended to be an academic essay, a policy analysis, or a muckraking exercise.  It is an unabashed polemic.  It seeks to develop broad themes and ideas about where Cleveland is at today, and where it is going.  Since a polemic is a call to action, it attempts to begin the development of an alternative politics of activism to combat what the author feels is an insidious, anti-democratic and unjust new order in our city.

Property tax exempt "hospitals" run by E.D.E.N. have cost Cuyahoga County millions in lost revenue

Submitted by mabeldog on Mon, 12/26/2016 - 22:09.

The Emerald Development Economic Network, which "helps" the poor by helping themselves to $25 million in federal funds per year, has also been cashing in for over 20 years by paying ZERO property taxes on their vast real estate holdings, which ALL house Section 8 tenants, by fraudulently classifying them as "private hospitals." Their lastest "hospital" venture is building obscenely expensive homeless shelters that house active drug users at the cost of $180,000 per 350 square foot unit. Each of these "hospitals" has between 60 and 80 units.
