PUSH THROUGH THE CHILL AND FEEL THE BURN…

July 23rd, 2016

Miles Goodrich, writing for 350.org, emails: Friends, Watching the Republican National Convention unfold this week was chilling. In an often-ridiculous horror show, Republicans officially nominated a climate-denying racist for President and a puppet of the Koch brothers as his VP. They also introduced the most regressive, bigoted party platform this country has seen in decades, […]

There are a number of stories that I come back to again and again. My friend Eric Vessels once wrote that I do a consistently good job of following up, and Scene Magazine said that my daily posts remind the public of Cleveland controversies long after the local media gets bored and moves on.

PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT…

July 22nd, 2016

There has been a political conspiracy meme running this election year(s) that Donald Trump is actually in cahoots with the Clintons, more effectively than anyone could have imagined, to destroy the traditional Republican candidates and then self-destruct so that Hillary can dance into the White House. Or, maybe the run is all a prank gone […]

TURKISH DRONE COMING FOR 1857 MT. EATON RD…?

July 20th, 2016

The Everwar is a single drone strike away from 1857 Mt. Eaton Road in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania.

THE DISHONESTY OF SHERROD BROWN…

July 19th, 2016

So, today I get a begging letter from Senator Sherrod Brown who was last re-elected to office four years ago, in 2012, which means he will be up for re-election two years from now, in 2018. How then am I to understand this: Can I count on you for $25, $50 or even $100 so […]

July 17th, 2016

There are lots and lots of NSFW takes on the Trump-Pence 2016 logo and Samantha Bee’s team came really, really close, but over at Free Thought Blogs, commenter Lassi Hippeläinen nailed the real, hidden meaning behind infamous logo which may have surpassed the 2012 London Olympics logo fiasco. Mano Singham had earlier predicted that Sarah […]

In Nothin’ But Blue Skies: The Heyday, Hard Times, and Hopes of America’s Industrial Heartland, Edward McClelland wrote in 2013: [Cleveland’s Slavic Village] was more than 50 percent African-American.

THIS COULD BE YOUR FATHER’S CONVENTION…

July 15th, 2016

When the movers and shakers in Cleveland, my adopted hometown, celebrated the landing of the 2016 Republican National Convention which begins in three days they were not thinking about Chicago in 1968 when police rioted because fewer than 500 protesters were not happy with, among other issues, the way President Lyndon Johnson had handled the […]
