War in Syria, could lead to WWIII, call your Senator!

I called Congressman Brown’s Cleveland office, 216-522-7272, last Friday, and gave the staffer an earful as to my opinions about the possible strike in Syria, Benghazi, the Patriot Act, Homeland Security (and many other federal agencies) buying enormous quantities of hollow point bullets (which I later learned are against the Geneva Convention, yet a year or two ago, one of his staffers unconcernedly told me that yes, they had to get them, because they are supposed to practice with what they are going to use--against whom, us?), habeas co

FULL TIME JOB IN CLEVELAND....being a quota for the system to sustain it's federal funding for administrators...and laymen...

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Thu, 08/29/2013 - 01:35.

 Did you recently lose your job? 

Need some help? Just a little til you get by? Soon; you'll learn what a full time job it is chasing all these programs for assistance that are meant to stabilize you which actually put you in further default if you allow it. 

Trust me...get a lawnmower and a shovel; offer landscaping to neighbors before you submit to this nightmare network of being used as a pawn for the purpose of serving as a quota....

Nice Work If You Can Get It : VACATION

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Wed, 08/28/2013 - 15:02.

Vacation today includes your smart phone.  And a SeaDoo! (or a boat)  And money.  

In lots of vacation places,   all of the above are required.    You have to be prepared and work  to get that vacation. 

Still, very exhilarating on a warm rock in the hot sun with orange lichen against the blue water.

Kucinich: “Everybody Lies To Congress; Abolish NSA, Celebrate Snowden” There should be a ‘death penalty’ for government agencies

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Wed, 08/21/2013 - 02:03.

There should be a ‘death penalty’ for government agencies that betray the American people

“We talk about the death penalty for individuals, which I oppose, but I think there needs to be for government agencies that so broadly betray the public interest,” Kucinich added.

Urban Design is Backward - first we lay out inadequate roads, then we density the Urban area

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 08/20/2013 - 10:53.

Except for Brasilia, is there a city where the roadways and land to be occupied were defined prior to maxing out  urbanization density?  

In most cities it seems that they are built ass-backward.   First a tiny town is established and the street lay out is committed.  Population 100.

Would a Corporation advertise to intentionally promote the FAILURE of one of it's products? You're crazy Man!

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Mon, 08/19/2013 - 16:56.

 In a recent New Yorker Magazine (August 12/19, 2013) I noticed a two page advertisement that struck me - the ad was so drab, so unispired, so gray, so boring - something was suspicious about it.

The ad was a total turn off for the product that the ad was allegedly "promoting" - showing flashlight batteries in a schizoid graffic?   Huh?

 I went to Steelyard Walmart last week. There was a huge island of what looked to be beautiful pineapples....upon getting closer, the odor of MOLD permeated the area. As I picked up a couple pineapples and smelled them; it was obvious that several of the batch had mold somewhere on them despite not seeing the mold. I asked one of the workers if he noticed it...He tried several until it hit him. He hollared at a produce manager. That manager upon review stated that they would have all of them removed. There were other pineapples placed at different locations.

FCC votes to reduce rates for prison phone calls - prison industrial complex got 88% from cost of a call from phone co.s(corrupt

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Sun, 08/11/2013 - 19:55.

"This is a means to help strengthen families," FCC Acting Chairwoman Mignon Clyburn told CNNMoney before the vote took place. "Communication is key, particularly when families are separated."

A typical 15-minute, state-to-state call costs $17 in some states, compared to about $1 in New York, where prison phone rates have already been reformed. That can make communication with family members prohibitively expensive for many inmates.
