CONSUMER RIGHTS AND THE UBIQUITOUS EULA…

February 8th, 2018

Arbitration clauses in contracts have gained a high profile in recent months because of how corporations have used them for years to protect the identity and very existence of sexual predators, serial sexual abusers, molesters and rapists in their employ from exposure by their victims. The problem with arbitration, however, runs deeper and is far […]

WHAT DONALD TRUMP REALLY WANTS IS THIS…

February 7th, 2018

and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and this, and these, and most of all… This… George Orwell had this to say on the subject of military parades in general, and goosestepping in particular: One rapid but fairly sure guide to the social atmosphere […]

SEN. PORTMAN RESPONDS, SIX MONTHS LATER…

February 6th, 2018

So, back on 18 July, I contacted Senator Robert Jones Portman regarding the Republican plan to leave millions of Americans and tens-of-thousands of Ohioans swinging in the healthcare wind by repealing the Affordable Care Act without a replacement. We’ve tried to play nice with the insurance companies, but their for-profit model has no place in […]

OHIO REPUBLICANS SEEK TO GUT 1ST AMENDMENT…

February 3rd, 2018

I have long made the case that the single most important amendment to the U.S. Constitution is the 21st—proposed on 20 February 1933 and ratified less than nine months later (on 5 December) by the extraordinary process of specially selected State Ratifying Conventions—because only the 21st nullifies a previous amendment with 15 simple words: The […]

IT’S JUST THE SAME OLD STORY, A PAYMENT
FOR BURDENSOME MONEY-SPONGE Q ARENA

January 30th, 2018

While there’s hoopla over the start of the expansion of Quicken Arena you may not have noticed that we’re still paying for Gund Arena. They are both the same facility, if you remember. Cuyahoga County—pushed by Tim Hagan, Mary Boyle, Jim Petro & Mike White—put on the tab back in the 1990s. On Jan. 15, […]

For more on the nasty little shit Miller you can surf over to Now This News which has equally revealing profiles of other White House denizens. The Guggenheim Museum has offered just the thing for the nasty little shit…

I’M SORRY, IT IS NOT OBAMA’S JOB TO SAVE US…

January 16th, 2018

President Barack Hussein Obama is retired. He did his eight years. Yes, he’s still popular and were it not for the 22nd Amendment—and the threat of his wife leaving him if he did such crazy shit—he would have crushed Donald Trump like a can of diet Coke. But he did his eight years. We cannot […]

BERNIE SANDERS TAKES HIS MESSAGE GLOBAL…

January 15th, 2018

In the 21st century national borders—walled or no—are meaningless when wealth flashes between banks across the globe in less time than it has taken me to write this sentence. We can’t build a wall high enough to stop the poisons of the industrial age from burning our lungs, riddling our bodies with cancers and flooding […]

11 POINTS FOR OUR WHITE WORKING-CLASS…

January 13th, 2018

In 1969 a group of White, working-class Americans born in the South but living in Chicago came together to create The Young Patriots Organization. An 11-point document came out of that organization—printed using an odd-faux computer font—that was meant to parallel the 10-point manifesto of The Black Panther Party. I abstract the document below, but […]

RTA CUTS? WHO CARES, IT SERVES WORKING PEOPLE

January 11th, 2018

The fact that there has been little public hysteria—as there usually is when something the corporate establishment feels hurt—tells you all you need to know about our priorities here. RTA faces a fiscal strangulation. It’s due to a change in levy of the sales tax on Medicaid. RTA says it will cost some $20 million […]

AARON GODFREY: LAUNCH EVENT FOR OHIO 16TH…

January 9th, 2018

I met Aaron Godfrey briefly at the December Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus meeting in Middleburg Height. He’s a bit raw in a good way and because I believe that early money is best, I’ve already made a contribution to his campaign. I’ll be making another when I buy a ticket to his Kick-Off fundraiser at […]

THE GOLDEN GLOBES SPEECH: OPRAH 2020…

January 8th, 2018

Our first woman president will not be Ivanka Trump. Let’s just get that said and move on to a reality based world. Jake Nevins, reporting in Oprah Winfrey’s stirring Golden Globes speech prompts talk of White House run for The Guardian, writes: The notion of the talk show host and entrepreneur running for president against […]

BROWNS FANS NEED CIVIC LESSONS

January 7th, 2018

It was quite a show with thousands braving frigid Lake Erie weather to celebrate (berate?) (castigate?) (deflate?) their Cleveland Browns on a far below freezing Saturday. To get that many people out under those circumstances certainly places Browns fans among the most fanatical, or hapless of sports fans. They were (protesting, celebrating) you pick the […]

REPUBLICANS MUST REMOVE, IMPEACH OR PERISH…

January 6th, 2018

Republicans in Congress face an existential crisis. I know that that was not the message David French meant to transmit in his blog post, but upon reflection, I think that is the 800 pound gorilla in Washington. French, writing in Trump’s Impeachment Prospects Have Little to Do with the Law for National Review, explains: [I]t’s […]
