Robbing us blind - just google Dan Gilbert or Cavs or Casino. Now you can't even get a drink of water at the Q.

We haven’t heard the next barrage of fireworks from the tiff among the Cleveland Foundation, the Gund Foundation and the Fund for Our Economic Future but I’m wondering how much big salaries have to do with the Cleveland Foundation’s desire for more control.

money is debt - debt is money + intertest = economic slavery - jerome daly : The Man Who Humbled the Federal Reserve

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Mon, 12/14/2009 - 02:31.

NaturalNews) Jerome Daly is one of the few men to take on the might of the Federal Reserve in the courts and win. 40 years ago, a Minnesota bank attempted to foreclose on Daly`s mortgage but he humiliated them, thanks to his profound knowledge of Fractional Reserve Banking and a courageous, scrupulously honest judge. The judge delivered a dynamite decision that blasted the Federal Reserve and National Banks as unconstitutional and fraudulent.

I guess I’m just stupid. I don’t get it. Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson wants to tax garbage to raise $13 million a year. Then he wants to tax non-profits to raise $5 million a year.

Busking in Cleveland

Submitted by lmcshane on Sun, 11/15/2009 - 20:08.

On my way to hear the amazing Loung Ung at Cleveland Public Library, I caught a few minutes of Busker Bradley J. on East Fourth St. 

He is scraping by in NEO by playing guitar on the streets.  So far, he has eluded the authorities, and he admits he hasn't checked the cost of a busker license.

Come to Cleveland for a Draft, a coal fume down draft that is.  

Tonight the spotlight is on the nocturnal emission from the Cleveland Thermal steam plant - delivered fresh to East 4th Street just a few blocks away.

Well, Guy won't find any minute listening devices inside this pillow but maybe it  will serve as a small reminder that he and Yogi are two of Tremont's shinning stars.  

Whether they took your pillows or not Guy,  here's one you'll remember.  It's a tribute to your run for the TWDC Board last year and the story we got out in the December issue of the Plain Press.   

Jeff, I was unsuccessful in posting with the proper topic - so maybe I did follow instruction very well.

In two days, November 14, it will be a year since Ed Hauser died unnecessarily, for lack of adequate public healthcare in America.

A year ago today, Ed's death could have been prevented, if he had access to better preventative healthcare, along the way... doctors visits, testing, and warning about a broken heart.

The Indians in New York State have casinos.   I drove past the casinos and was pulled in by one of those dilapidated road side farmer's stands.   I spent 28 dollars on food raised on the Seneca First Nation.  I am eating the proceeds of my entertainment.   Dan Gilbert wants NEO to eat chips.

Could the pathetic condition of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party give us a Republican for the first County executive? Is the Pee Dee already pushing a Republican, the out-of-county son of Cleveland Indians’ owner Larry Dolan for the top spot?

Dunkirk New York coal fired power plant on Lake Erie image jeff buster11.2.09

Unit trains of coal dead end at the Dunkirk electric power generating station on the shore of Lake Erie in Dunkirk, New York. 

No one minds  the tons of coal disappearing up the chimneys because  the wind picks up the effluent from the train cars and spins it off across Lake Erie to Toronto, Canada.
