Southern Poverty Law Center's suggestions on how to respond to hate

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 08/22/2017 - 10:51.

 What ever we do in life it helps the operation run smoothly if we practice.    

Recently the United States has developed - with a green light from POTUS -  a new "tone" - anger, antimosity, bias, venum.    None of these will result in long term positive change. 

So back to practice...

The Southern Poverty Law Center has developed a guide book with suggestions on how to respond to hate which you can view here.

DSCDO is new political machine - building Matt Zone candidacy for higher office

Submitted by lmcshane on Tue, 08/08/2017 - 21:46.

From Laura McShane:  It is absolutely critical for the machine to support the oligarchy behind Frank Jackson. The next figurehead in that line-up is Matt Zone.  Detroit Shoreway Development Corporation (DSCDO) allows the machine to continue handing off special deals for special friends. Community Development Block Grant funding will dry up under Donald Trump - each council person also allocates Neighborhood Development Allocations to select groups.

Similar Mental illness in the pharmacy line and in the White House?

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 07/28/2017 - 10:55.

 

I was running errands earlier this week and I went to a hospital pharmacy to pick up a script for a house bound friend.  There was a long line, I got a phone call, so I sat down on a nearby bench from which I took the photo above.   

In the space of about 45 minutes 5 different people who were in the line demonstrated psychotic, disruptive, mentally disturbed behavior.

CMSD owns condemned property next to Denison School

Submitted by lmcshane on Tue, 07/25/2017 - 08:51.

 A reminder to everyone that Mayor Frank Jackson administers the City of Cleveland AND Cleveland Metropolitan School District. The District has been playing real estate politics with the properties adjacent to the CMSD Denison building. Brian Cummins has been fully aware of this property for over 9 years - Tony Brancatelli has the gerrymandered Ward 12 across the street.

The Travesty of "Good Government"

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 07/20/2017 - 03:02.

 Today was a devastating blow to residents who want to see accountability in government.   It has been known for some time that the "Community Development Corporation" known as Detroit Shoreway Development Corporation is a fraud and a front for shady real estate deals - but the extent of corruption was assumed to be strictly local and not necessarily state-wide.

RIP Gerald "Jerry" Strothers - East Cleveland REAL media coverage

Submitted by lmcshane on Tue, 07/18/2017 - 08:42.

 REALNEO has just learned via Facebook - that Gerald O. Strothers has passed on.  This is a devastating blow to the truth in reporting from East Cleveland.  And, the loss of a Northeast Ohio genius.  Citizen reporters are now the vanguard.  There is no turning back.  Gerry showed all of us the way.

Northeast Ohio is a cultural destination - DESPITE our insane local govt and media

Collectors from all over the world come to Cleveland - the recent Glasco show at Wolf's Gallery in the Larchmere neighborhood and Daniel Kelly exhibit at the Verne Gallery in Little Italy are must-see locales.  Tregoning and Co. and Kenneth Paul Lesko Gallery at 78th Street Studios are major tourist destination for art lovers and collectors.

 

How do we capitalize on this amenity with accommodations and local travel plans, especially with the upcoming FRONT International??

 Unbelievably, the media gives Armond Budish a complete pass.  Is Budish a complete simpleton surrounded by morons?  I think so - I am reprinting article from this past week and last year in entirety to show you how Clevelanddotcom is complicit in allowing this insanity to continue.  WE have no tax base to support services in Cuyahoga County.  This is insanity.

Beta Male Craig Butler sent TWO girls to EC dump meeting

Ohio EPA Dictator beta male Craig Butler afraid of unpleasant questions about his role in approving the 6 story MOUNTAIN of cancer causing toxins on Noble Road in East Cleveland sent not one but TWO girls in his stead to the townhall on June 12 at the EC Sally Ann. The two girls, Assistant Regional Co-Ordinator of EPA Misinformation Billie Jean and her trusty sidekick Susie Q raced to the front of the hall where they spent 15 minutes yucking it up with a couple of sweaty white guys in business suits before the meeting began.
