DIE & THEY STILL DON’T TELL TRUTH ABOUT YOU

November 15th, 2017

All this praise being heaped on Carl Stokes by the news media and many others is a bunch of bullshit. Why? Because it comes after he’s been dead more than 20 years and it doesn’t fit how he was treated when he was the first black mayor of Cleveland. In other words, when it really […]

REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN JIM RENACCI (OH-16):
ARMED BIKERS ACTING AS YOUR SECURITY…?

November 14th, 2017

So, I don’t know why this story isn’t being played more broadly, but reading my local free weekly newspaper, The North Royalton Post, this evening I can across this headline: Bikers for Trump eject serial protester from Renacci campaign event. Reporting for The Post, staff writer Bob Morehead writes: It was supposed to be a […]

GOP CANDIDATE ROY MOORE’S DREAM LAW…

November 14th, 2017

When Roy Moore steps down/gets booted from the United States Senate, he might be considering a move to Baghdad. The family values of the religious wrong in Iraq appear to be more in line with those of Moore (and Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler) than the majority of Americans. If Moore finds Iraq to be […]

TONIGHT I’LL BE WATCHING WE THE PEOPLE 2.0

November 13th, 2017

From the Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus: We the People 2.0—The Second American Revolution A new democracy movement is building elevating community and nature rights over corporate rights. We the People 2.0 – The Second American Revolution is a film featuring CELDF’s Thomas Linzey, Ben Price, and Tish O’Dell, with stories from across the country—including Pennsylvania, […]

A HYPOTAXIS RUN-ON SENTENCE BUMBLING ABOUT…

November 12th, 2017

Oddly enough, I’m reading Mark Forsyth’s The Elements of Eloquence—Secrets of the Perfect Turn of Phrase and on Friday I read chapter 11: Hypotaxis and Parataxis (and Polysyndeton and Asyndeton). Forsyth wrote: There’s nothing wrong with parataxis. It’s good, simple, plain, clean-living, hard-working, up-bright-and-early English. Wham. Bam. Thank you, ma’am. “Orwell liked it. Hemingway liked […]

REALLY BIGLY, AMAZINGLY BIG, CONSEQUENCES…

Clearly Garry Trudeau is a regular reader of Have Coffee Will Writes. (Don’t I wish…)

WHAT IS THE LINE ON ROY MOORE’S DEMISE…?

November 9th, 2017

So, now, according to Jonah Goldberg at National Review, we have an idea of where conservatives may (I’m not as certain as Goldberg) draw the line on bad behavior. In Saving Roy Moore Isn’t Worth It, Goldberg writes: I suppose it’s good that some Republicans see this as a bridge too far. But it’s a […]

SPENCER IS A (DANGEROUS) WHINY LITTLE TWIT…

November 8th, 2017

Richard Spencer is a whiny little twit, but he’s a dangerous whiny little twit. That’s why Gary Younge finally decided that interviewing the wasted mass of human genome was important. In Why interviewing Richard Spencer was a risk worth taking, Younge explains: In July this year, I interviewed the American white supremacist Richard Spencer, for […]

VOTERS LEFT LITTLE CHOICE BUT TO CHOSE DRIFT

November 8th, 2017

The mayoral election is over. The result is painful. Cleveland shows it is pathetically off course. We witnessed the obituary of public governance. Tragedy and farce. Once again the winner vote was stay-at-home. Of 262,047 the number who voted for either mayoral candidate was 59,622, or 22.7 percent. That’s 77 percent of Clevelanders didn’t bother […]

WHY WE CONTINUE TO HAVE MASS SHOOTINGS…

November 6th, 2017

David French writes: When you see a mass murder unfold on the television screen or read about it online, let me tell you the single-most important and effective thing you can do in response. It also happens to be the single-most important and effective thing you can do on a sustained basis to turn the […]

JOHN OLIVER OUGHT TO HAVE TALKED TO ROLDO…

November 5th, 2017

Yes, Amazon’s HQ2 feeding frenzy inspired John Oliver to do yet another of his insightful pieces on how clueless politicians have bought into the false idea that throwing tax dollars at already really wealthy people will create jobs, really good paying jobs (like mining coal), but, as the most recent tax bill illustrates, our elected […]

WELCOME TO THE PARADISE PAPERS…

November 5th, 2017

For a taste of the papers, see Trump commerce secretary’s business links with Putin family laid out in leaked files. For the more visual examination of all this tax avoidery, there’s First Dog On the Moon.

TWEET LIE ONE, LIE TWO, LIE THREE, LIE FOUR…

November 5th, 2017

Every time I think that maybe I should reconsider my canceling my Twitter and Facebook accounts—which I did back in 2013—I’m reminded by journalists I trust just how bad the two platforms are for the intellectual health of anyone. Writing in Four Viral Claims Spread by Journalists on Twitter in the Last Week Alone That […]

LET THE WAILING, GNASHING & TWEETING BEGIN…

November 3rd, 2017

Coordinating lead authors Donald J. Wuebbles, National Science Foundation and U.S. Global Change Research Program—University of Illinois; David W. Fahey, NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory and Kathy A. Hibbard, NASA Headquarters have just published what I’m certain will be the source of much angst and sleeplessness among those who continue to deny that the existential […]

WHITE POLITICIZE BAD, BROWN POLITICIZE GOOD!

November 1st, 2017

Meanwhile, over at National Review, David French, in Sure, Go Ahead and Politicize Tragic Events, and Jonah Goldberg, in Propriety for Thee, but Not for Me?, have a sleep-over pillow fight over the issue.

THIS IS HOW THE WRONG RESPECTS THE FLAG…?

October 30th, 2017

This is precisely the hypocrisy that boils my grits. Every time I see a wrong-wing group gather to protest how liberals and progressives aren’t real Americans, I can be assured that there will be men and women choosing to wear our nation’s flag as a sign of their patriotism. That is so wrong that Michael […]

THE PLAIN DEALER CAN HAS TRANSPARENCY…?

[Update @ 1626 on 31 October—The following comment exchange took place between the anonymous Starvin Marvin and Roldo this morning: Posted by Starvin Marvin on 10/31/2017 at 7:28 AM To Roldo and the other naysayers on downtown development. What would the city look like if we followed your advice and disinvested in downtown Cleveland? Posted […]

VOTE NO ON ISSUE 1 AND VOTE YES ON ISSUE 2…

October 28th, 2017

[Update @ 1228 on 4 November—Mano Singham and I are in total agreement here.] A week from Tuesday, on 7 November, Ohioans lock down the vote on two key ballot questions: Issue 1 and Issue 2. Like many Ohioans, I’ve already cast my ballot, voting no in the first case and yes in the second. […]
