Submitted by Jeff Buster on Mon, 12/17/2012 - 15:36.
A friend recently contacted me: the manufacturing plant where he has worked for years is due to close - because of corporate decisions about different divisions consolidating, etc.  You have heard the jargon...

PS - my kid wants a gun.   A Lugar.   has it picked out.

Clear as Black and White - "disadvantaged" neighborhood pc of Clark Freeway is back and has 13 signal intersections -

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 12/07/2012 - 12:46.

The Clark Freeway was stopped from going through the Buckeye-Kinsman-Shaker Lakes  40+ years ago - but the fair minded folks at University Circle and the Cleveland Clinic  have the desire to spend 350 million of taxpayer money to impose the western half of the Clark Freeway through the Disadvantaged Triangle.

Let's CLIMB the Cliff - and ALSO get rid of Mortgage deduction and Charitable deduction

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 12/07/2012 - 12:27.

 The country has a great opportunity - to reduce military spending, to reduce the country's budged deficit, and to bring greater economic equality across our citizenry - and our legislators don't need to do a thing.   

The "CLIFF"!

But it isn't something we are going to fall over effortlessly - it is a cliff we need to climb up.

Let's go do it!

Fiscal CLIMB

"unpublish" is an Admin option - rather than a user deleting their content

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 12/07/2012 - 10:56.

FYI  Realneo Users:     

If you are of a mind to delete your blog, or delete your content which has comments below it - there is an option which administration has that the user doesn't have.    

That option is to "unpublish" the content.

ODOT - killing us with terrible highway construction management

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 12/02/2012 - 22:27.

In the recent presidential election, your Ohio citizen vote was coveted.   You, a human in America, were important.

Not on Interstate 90 in NEOhio.  (image above - two lanes - no shoulder either side - just Jersey barriers - where will snow be shoved?)

Your life is dirt!

Toronto's Mayor Rob Ford meets Ethics Rules - and is SHOT out of Office

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 12/02/2012 - 21:16.

 This is how NEO should be run - zero tolerance - just like with the cops on the streets of Cleveland and East Cleveland.  Shoot to kill.  

Ask questions later.

Kill first. Kill right now. 137 shots, in an event starting at the Cleveland Justice Center, leading to all 13 sickos now out on paid leave.

rent to own first home guerrilla sign cleveland ohio 216-624-6308

Drive around the inner city of Cleveland, Ohio, and you will see guerilla signs -  like the RENT TO OWN YOUR FIRST HOME sign in the image above - nailed  up to telephone poles at busy intersections.

IN terms of media "impressions" the sign competes pretty well with the "legitimate" Clear Channel Communications billboards in these same neighborhoods.

All these steel tools in a porcelain china sink isn't very smart - could break it - but it's convenient. 

Getting the faucets off the sink was an upside down task.  'bout lost my temper!

Then I saw the art of it all...

Drupal Cleveland Meetup at CSU

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Thu, 11/15/2012 - 11:36.

Back in 2004 Norm Roulet rolled out Realneo at Case's REI Tuesdays.   At the time Case was struggling trying to communicate on the web with  wikis - wikis were awkward and difficult to use and inspired Norm to introduce Realneo at REI as a content managment system.  That's when I first became a Realneo User.

What is REALNEO?

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 11/11/2012 - 22:41.

 Realneo is a community of people who fight.   

Fight for Civic Equity.

Realneo is a community of people who, whether they lose that fight, don't recognize that overwhelming obstical.

Lose?  What's that?

Realneo is a community of people who continue to fight not recognizing that they have "lost".

Realneo is a community of thick- headed advocates for equity. 

You can bang us hard on the head, in the wallet, in public, in private - but we don't get that  vibe.

War - Ruined 3 close friends of mine. Veteran's Day 2012

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sat, 11/10/2012 - 21:45.

 I won't finish this post tonight - too tired, too much Jim Blum

Jim is playing music focused on Veteran's day.   

But I have to say, the war in Vietnam ruined the lives of my good friends Bill and Rich, and the Iraq war totally destroyed Victor.  

They all came home.  In their body only.

I'll fill in the details in the coming days.    It's been a long time coming that I should write about this...

Dirty Dealer soon to be kicked hard by Advance Publications

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 11/09/2012 - 17:32.


Advance Publications, which owns the Plain Dealer, isn't making enough money in Cleveland. 

Last summer, several other papers operated by Advance layed off staff and cut the weekly publication days to three.  

The Dirty Dealer's employees are about to start an advertizing campaign in which they will plead to the public in NEO - to not let the Dirty Dealer "fade".

Cleveland SCENE's Michael Roberts - DROPS ANCHOR on TAX INCREASE ISSUE 108

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Tue, 11/06/2012 - 08:45.

 The Scene accurately describes the miasma which is the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Port Authority.    

The silly park on a sliding hill, the mud sucking from the snaky river bottom, the eye candy "bridge".    But all these issues are red herrings.    These "projects" are the "visuals" which the corrupt Port Authority wants the public to focus on -   easy to understand - and vote up the new tax.
