Re: “Ohio's Dog Breeding Regulations Aren't Solving the Puppy Mill Problem

It's a puzzle why charges of animal abuse and neglect weren't filed against this breeder. Maybe it's time to call out the elected representatives and government officials who fail to hold commercial puppy producers accountable or who actively protect them.

Re: “Cuyahoga County Clerks Are the Latest Workers to Unionize

This article quotes someone from Americans for Prosperity -- the ultra right-wing, Koch-funded group fighting for lower taxes, less government, and an end to Obamacare.

Really? "Sure," AFP says, "we support unionization!" Just not in any way that allows unions to survive. They prefer to allow free riders -- while other people pay the dues and do the work, no one has to "be forced" to join the union. Oh,t hey get all the benefits of unionization (higher pay, better benefits, better working conditions). But they don't have to sacrifice anything. Which is why federal and state law requires all-or-nothing membership.

But let's not worry about that. Because AFP is just another normal, wonderful, community-minded organization. Right?

Re: “The Flats on Trial

Furthermore, I used to frequent the Flats and bar hop all of the establishments back in that time period. As a matter of fact, I used to park in the same lot where this all went down. Indeed, I heard about this incident when I parked in the same lot within a few days after it happened. You know what I find "interesting" (to quote your own phrase)? I find it interesting that in all the years I spent down there having a good time, the only bad thing about the experience was punk assholes like your brother and his cronies that would ruin a good time out with their chickenshit behavior, not being able to behave as a human being in public, not being able to handle their booze, and trying to start up a confrontation with random individuals. Then, according to the article, the dipshits parents tried to sue the owner of the parking lot for big money to support his ongoing medical care? Care resulting from your brother and company being aggressively inebriated and finding EXACTLY what they were looking for? Gag. I could just about puke at the irony and disgrace involved in the legal system if their case was successful... Yes, I had to knock the shit out of people like your brother a couple times in all the years I went down there, but it was ALWAYS in response to their starting the show. Somehow, that translates to the parking lot being a danger, and the responsibility of the owner of said lot to protect the assholes from attacking people going to their cars, to go home and go to bed, instead of roaming, feeling liquid muscle and courage and getting themselves killed??? Its been a lot of years since this happened, but after having run across this today, I sincerely thank you for the laughs.

Re: “The Flats on Trial

Awww. Your brother went bar hopping with his buddies and instead of drinking and having a good time and ending the night by going home and living on, he acted like a typical asshole that couldn't handle his liquor. Trying to be a tough guy and running his mouth in a parking lot. Looking for trouble. Which he unfortunately (or fortunately depending on one's point of view, I am of the second opinion) in this case actually found. Then got his life taken, as well as his friend's stabbed for their trouble. Sounds to me like your brother's intended victim knew how to defend himself very well. Too bad for your brother, well done to him. You cry about not having money for a lawyer? Get real. Grow up. Too bad. So sad. I would like to pour a drink to the shade of your brother, but only after filtering it through my kidneys first. Hahahhahahaahaahahaahahahhahaahahaahahahaha

Re: “Cracking the Bucknut

Undoubtedly, most Bucks fans are just enthusiastic about their team and all around good eggs, I know quite a few. However, since my undergraduate days in Ann Arbor (the Bo and Woody era) I have too many times run into the muscle-head, working class, hate-filled pukes that psychologically over identify with OSU. There was a time that a Michigan plate could invite slashed tires in Columbus, though these antics were not likely attributable to those with the brain cells to gain acceptance and graduate from a great institution like OSU, yes I salute it as a great school. The reason that stereotypes are entertaining is that there is often a grain of truth. Cheers to the good sportsmen and fans on Scarlet and Grey as well as in Maize and Blue and a pox on the vicious, knuckle-dragging, fools that taint the name of either school.

I have been shopping at the Parma store since it opened. Great store with an even greater purpose.

Re: “University of Akron Press Chopped from School's Budget

The napalming of departments and the board of trustees and other snobby suits can entertain guests in an empty stadium during home football games that could not draw a crowd through free tickets.

Re: “University of Akron Press Chopped from School's Budget

The University of Akron owes a lot to dedicated staff like Amy Freel who have given so much of their time and themselves to create a great university press. This is an outrageous decision and a mistake that must be reversed.

Re: “In the Fight for Labor Equality, Don't Disregard #BlackLivesMatter

To be honest, I am a bit exhausted with Black Lives matters for the moment. Police blotter filled with all kinds of murder and mayhem in the places where blacks live. None of which has anything to do with police or labor equality, whatever that means. By the way, the conference sounds like huge waste of effort. It would have been more helpful to train black youth how to comply with a police order.

Re: “Kevin Kelley on What's to Come for Cleveland City Council

It's great to get some candor and honesty from Cleveland governing officials. It's not an easy job and it's not fun, folks. Be thankful that we have someone of quality, commitment and modesty like Councilman Kelley running City Council.
