Re: “New Bill Proposes $200 Million from State's 'Rainy Day Fund' to Tackle Opiate Addiction Crisis; Kasich Balks

There goes another Democrat who can't wait to spend our tax payer rainy day fund to "solve" another social problem. We all know that throwing money at it isn't the answer. Come up with a better solution to the problem and leave our money alone.

He is cute, and has a nice suit.... but the real question is, will be bow down to suburban living business elite? If not, than he is without a hope.

Re: “City Council President Kevin Kelley is on Trial, Whether He Likes it or Not

That Kevin Kelley is a pathetic liar should not be a surprise -- his thirst for a future mayoral bid oozes from his it snaps up and down due to the taut puppet strings manipulated by Frank Jackson.

Re: “Ohio Supreme Court Justice Advocates Full Marijuana Legalization, Taxation

At least the Democratic judge on the Ohio Supreme Court, unlike the Republican majority has not been actively violating wills and grabbing jurisdiction over camps in Penobscot County Maine in order to grab art and stuff that the testator never left to the state of Ohio.

Same bums that ran down to the Republicans in Columbus in order to betray the deal they made on the Fight For $15.
Vote out all 17 fake "Progressives" on city council and the mayor this September and November.

Re: “City Council President Kevin Kelley is on Trial, Whether He Likes it or Not

I'm not a lawyer, but if the city's attorneys were representing Pat Britt as clerk, then not only can Kevin Kelley not claim privilege, his being "in the loop" *breaks* Britt's claim to privilege too.

I spent a little time reading the case law on attorney-client privilege in institutional settings like municipal councils, and it's really murky. But it's pretty weird for an _individual_ member of council to claim privilege without including their council colleagues in the bubble of privilege.

And one really basic part of privilege is that if you're the client and you blab otherwise privileged material to outsiders, the privilege is gone. If it's out, it's out.

Again: I'm not a lawyer and my legal education comes from reading everything in the library at CSU. But I am undefeated in appeals court, so that's something.

Re: “Former Medina High School Basketball Player Sues After Getting Cut From Team

The people on here disrespecting this kid and his family for sticking up for what they believe is the right thing is a joke. I have seen it first hand in high school sports kids not getting fair playing time because their coach had a personal problem with them. When these people get in positions of power over kids they need to be held accountable for their actions. Booster club members, coaches kids and administrators kids are not the only talented kids out their.( ITS CALLED DADDY BALL). Without knowing all the facts it's hard to say if this kid was treated fairly or not .

Thank you, Sam Allard, for the excellent report. I've been looking all day for coverage of last night's Cleveland City Council meeting, and this was the only place to find it. Unbelievable!

Re: “City Council Rejects 20,603 Q Deal Petition Signatures on Questionable Grounds

and the impetus behind the whole issue?

second verse...same as the first
This issue is the absurdity of absurdities. Let me get this straight: the
purpose of the Sin Tax is to gouge those who purchase alcohol and cigarettes
not because anyone is trying to discourage consumption but rather so the
County can use that money to pay for sports stadiums that do not produce
anything but a fleeting moment witnessing the passing of a football, the
dribbling of a basketball and the throwing of a baseball so that such a minute
tidbit of diversion can be enjoyed by all. The stupidity of this proposition is
enough to make your head spin even though the spin doctors advocating
passage of this nonsense are already doing a pretty good job of hypnotizing
the voters to actually consider supporting it. At least the Robber Barons
of the previous centuries provided something tangible such as oil, steel,
railroads etcetera. These team owners do not even provide one tangible thing
that could ever be considered with the term value added. Almost everyone
discusses this enterprise as though it is the same thing as industry {which
it is not}. The price of admission is essentially a voluntary tax paid by those
who can afford it to pay those who dont need it. If this isnt a transfer of
wealth I dont know what is.

The real outrage here is the fact that taxes on alcohol and cigarettes will
not be used to aid in the reduction of addiction {hence the reference to sin}
but rather to stuff the pockets of all three teams who could easily afford to
pay for the repairs themselves. The vote was rammed through the last time
{under somewhat suspicious circumstances} and hear we go again. But this
time...not so fast!!! We the voters of Cuyahoga County are going to fight the
proponents on this one and we don't care if the teams up and go somewhere
else {please see my views on entertainment below} because quite frankly there
are simply more important things than sports and the unearned money that
comes with it. Those in public office who are too stupid and lazy to find other
ways to grow a major American city need to resign and leave their self-seeking
political ambitions on the scrapheap of history. Dont ever let it be said that
this was time when the tide ran out on Cuyahoga County but rather was the
time when the voters rose up to welcome the rising tide of change and rebuked
this pathetic paradigm our previous elected leaders embraced.
Let the battle be joined.

Re: “City Council Rejects 20,603 Q Deal Petition Signatures on Questionable Grounds

Do the players even care what the facilities are like? Hell, no.
Is someone going to make a killing off this deal? Hell, yes.

Why does every major-sport venue need an upgrade after 15 or 20 years, and even less? Is it because they were built like shit to begin with? Doubtful.

Or is it arm-twisting from the franchises who are holding cities hostage with veiled threats to move? That's more like it.

And then there are the wannabe "big-league" towns down South and out West that build something fancy because they are jonesing for a relocated team, which leans that established cities like Cleveland have to keep up with the Jonesvilles.

It's all bullshit. And why allow a petition drive if it ends up as the City Council's toilet paper supply?

That's even more crap...but not bullshit. Human shit. And that stinks even worse.

Re: “City Council Rejects 20,603 Q Deal Petition Signatures on Questionable Grounds

This article is exactly why so many people are opposed to this deal: because it stinks of funny business, and our elected officials are waaay too excited about pushing this through. It hasn't been that long since doughnut-loving Jimmy D and his gang got hauled out of town on corruption charges. I read this, and I'm getting flashbacks to those days. At least now I know everyone I need to vote against.
