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

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 08/22/2017 - 09:51.

 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 - 20:46.

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 - 09:55.


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 - 07:51.

 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 - 02:02.

 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 - 07:42.

 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.

Hocus Pocus - Cover up of Cuyahoga County Corruption

Submitted by lmcshane on Sat, 07/08/2017 - 09:09.


Armond Budish continues to operate with the same level of underhanded incompetence pioneered by his predecessors in Cuyahoga County government.   There is no attempt by the media - in this most recent case, Peter Krouse of - to ask even the most obvious questions about these transactions.

 Long-time contributor to REALNEO Guy Templeton Black has died.  His dog Sofia is available for adoption at the Animal Protective League.  I will post more information as it becomes available.  Guy was a challenging person, who defended the rights of the marginalized and forgotten.  He will be missed.

 Where are they now?? Jim Rokakis leads some bullsh#t fake green land trust for the 1%, Gus Frangos heads up Cuyahoga County Land Bank (and most likely collects PERS) -the new preferred way of transferring wealth (after the tax lien sale scam and Board of Revision gig dried up) to CDCs like Detroit Shoreway, and Tony Brancatelli - Mr.

Gross incompetence or Corruption??

Submitted by lmcshane on Thu, 06/15/2017 - 07:09.

 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.
