Destiny of the Republic - revisit the Garfield Presidency before RNC 2016

Submitted by lmcshane on Tue, 08/11/2015 - 23:23.


My summer reading this year included Destiny of the Republic by Candice Millard.  I highly recommend that NEO residents pick up the book before the RNC convention.  So much has changed, but so much is the same.  The "spoils system" especially threatens to derail our country - not to mention the seemingly never-ending racial divisiveness.

Across the Buckeye State, trails provide opportunities for a healthy lifestyle, boost local economies, and provide a safe way to connect people and places. Ohio’s trails are an important resource—and your senators know it, too.

Only Little People pay taxes...

Submitted by lmcshane on Fri, 12/19/2014 - 08:53.
 Anyone remember who said the line "Only little people pay taxes" ?  I will come back to that question after you "google" the answer.  Well, evidently, the rule applies in Cuyahoga County, too.   Two politically-connected tax evaders are getting some attention this past week.

A bit late, but I have been recuperating from wonderful visit from my sister, her husband and grand-daughter, where we ate out and shopped, shopped, shopped, which was what they wanted to do. And I have had a string of chronic migraines.

done anything about the bubble that is building up (again.)

Of course, he piously affirms that, as regards his role in bailing out the too-big-to- fail banks, no one knows how bad it could have been.

These giants are now distributing enormous bonuses again and were  not punished at all, or only had their hands slapped with an  easily paid, though high, fine for rigging LIBOR, allowing a foreign exchange trader to lose a ton of money, and...oh, one is investigating the rigging of gold prices, nor prices of silver, either.

Essentially, this is what I emailed Sen. Brown, NSA collected it, no doubt, so it is not news

I am furious about what I read. How has our country changed so far, so fast, that this is happening? Our senators and representatives, as well as the government officials, and often the judges, are reprehensible. * * * * Quite some time ago, there were other whistleblowers about the extraordinary NSA surveillance and the immense building they are building in Utah to house it. I wrote you about it then and you said it had been forbidden. Well, they are doing it anyhow! What are you doing about it? Nothing I can see. I agree with those that ask for an investigation.

 Norm Roulet created a community of interest to gain the attention of Peter B. Lewis.  Norm saw Peter B. Lewis as the only prominent philanthropist in Cleveland, who could SEE through the bullshit and con artists in this town - and THINK to make positive change.

Hunger Strike Support

 Hello everyone, just joined.

I have joined the hunger strike to Save John Marshall High School. I never attended this school, but I admire Satinder's dedication and I am fed up with the direction of the Cleveland School Board under mayoral control. Today is my second day of fasting.

Waste to Energy?!

While the City of Cleveland (Greater Cleveland Partnership) continues to promote burning trash for energy--

We all allow millions of gallons of wastewater to be flushed downstream at a cost to taxpayers?? There has to be a better way!

Iranian ship saves American lives, their freighter attacked by pirates

Submitted by Oldroser on Tue, 06/05/2012 - 08:36.

SF Gate, home of the San Francisco Chronicle, May 23, 2012: The Iranian Navy is said to have rescued the U.S.-flagged US-flagged Maersk Texas, which was beseigned by several pirate ships in the GUlf of Oman, coming to its rescue after hearing its distress signal. The pirates fled as soon as they saw the warship appear.

The Maersk's corporate offices, however, denied it, saying the Iranian Navy was the first to respond after sending the distress signal but weren't helped by them, instead Iran's navy provided guidance to the crew of the Maersk Texas by radio.
