 It's absurd to have a heart for the City of Cleveland these days...It hit me that our "sense of community" is simply a chronic disease of attending enumerable forums to attempt to react to the conditions that continue to deteriorate while finding small senses of purpose in that fight. We used to believe that we were making a difference by engaging the disengaged. Somehow; many of us missed the boat.... The game in this city is not one of creating a "HOMETOWN"-that's a facade from eras long ago...

If only I could paint....!

Now there are not too many things other people have that I am jealous of or covet...

I can wield a camera around pretty handily, but, I certainly wish I could paint like Jane.

This is a painting of her veterinarian - with a small Norman Rockwell imitation scene thrown in at the lower RH corner right in front of the pointing hand .

VOTER TURNOUT IN OHIO...Lobbying the legislators to compare dead people, etc to the rolls....

Submitted by ANGELnWard14 on Thu, 11/07/2013 - 18:09.

 When someone dies; a death certificate is filed. How come they don't have to send a copy to the board of elections or bmv? 

I mean; a simple checklist would simplify the world around us and remove so much corruption..... seriously. 

Right now they are demolishing houses in Cleveland..........those house addresses need to be sent to the BOE to be removed from the voter rolls. Hello.... 

As long as there is no requirements and accountability; there will be too much room for error and CORRUPTION....

 

woot, woot.

TY CLE - Perpetuate the Second Class - Parasitism

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 11/07/2013 - 10:27.

 Thank you to my neighbors who voted in the same crud who perpetuate the cycle of abandonment and parasitism we live with in NEO.  Federal funds can't pour into a region unless there is an entrenched class of citizens deemed "second class."  

Well - this is our future - warehousing our elderly and the offspring of any child considered less fortunate because they had the misfortune to be labeled "Urban."

Good luck with your investment strategies!!!

Reflecting on Early Childhood Grandpa's Wagon Rides to Town....

The journey of life can be such an amazing experience....to love and lose or to live and die....it's all so trivial but so seriously worth the effort to endure. What's it all worth at the end of the day? Well; that's all simply a matter of opinion. I know my personal blessings and I know the value which is significant to my existence...this is all that matters to me anymore. I cannot project my expecations upon others to realize the value of time and of things that money cannot buy. I simply must accept that state of mind in the middle. Tis' life!

 Hello Residents of the City of Cleveland - you do have a choice.  

Please rid us of the corrupt "it is what it is..." mentality.  Get RID of Frank Jackson and Martin Sweeney - vote for transparency and accountability (at least there is a promise of something-anything better than the STATUS QUO).

1968 Ben Shahn PEACE poster for presidential candidate Eugene McCarthy

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Thu, 10/24/2013 - 15:04.

The times have changed since 1968.    

Today, when the president meets with Pakastani officials, it's drones, not peace, which is the topic of discussion.   

The NYTimes, in 2008 compared Ben Shahn's 1968 Peace poster with Shephard Fairey's Obama Hope poster.

Stealing from the Scrap thieves in Cleveland, Ohio

In every community our overall impression of that community is aggregated from numerous experiences.   

Google hasn't provided the public with an algorithm to process this data, so here I go....

I had an experience recently which involved delivering scrap metal (light iron) to a junk yard.

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?
