Re: “Video: Another Cuyahoga County Jail Officer Talks About Safety Problems in Facility, Fear of Jail Leadership

I remember watching this place on TV. A show called lock up on MSNBC. No way I would do that job , I give credit to the guys that do. I have been hearing a lot about this place in the news. If the doors are broke ,
Why not just fix them ?

Re: “Cleveland March Planned in Solidarity with Women's March on Washington

Looks like sunny and 60 Degrees for Saturday.

10,000 is my number.

I hope after the march young, (and old) liberals look not to their party but the rules by which elections are run in the United States.

Rule 1: States control all elections and are legally able to make it up as they go along.
Whichever Party controls your State, controls the Rules.
But it's not equal in that regard either: Republicans have the advantage in gerrymandering because of the sprawled geography of their base voters.

Rule 2: Where you vote matters.
States not only control the voting process, they vary in electoral power, loosely based on population.
That power, or number of Electoral votes can only be reapportioned after a Census every 10 years.
Assume it won't change much if at all in your voting lifetime and strategize around that.

But that's not the whole story. Individual voters have more power as individuals in smaller States, even though that doesn't result in more power at the Federal Level, but it can at the State Level.

Re: “Photographer Lee Sechrist is Shooting Cleveland's Hangovers, One Pain-Riddled Face at a Time

Anony - Nope, but like most posters you (like this article on Clevelander's) stereotype someone saying their opinion as "sad-do-nothing shut-in". I lived in Cleveland 25+ years - born and raised. Finally did get out. I stand by my opinion, and also accept yours. Middle aged dads will continue to go out and get hungover and find this funny. I'd rather see something positive about Clevelander's - not grotesque close ups of grown men looking like they are trying to relive their glory days.

Dear NoCleveland (a sad, do-nothing shut-in who has some poorly formed idea of cleveland), your feeble attempt at a jab comes off as a combination of false equivalency and sour grapes. The whole idea is to poke fun at it.

Way to stereotype yourself even more, Cleveland. Nothing like looking at a bunch of middle aged dads who shouldn't be getting that wasted in the first place. Keep it Classy!

Re: “Ohio is the Third Worst State in the Nation (According to Thrillist)

Ohio, yeah the weather sucks it's hot in the summer cold af in the winter.Has a serious Herion Problem, but are so against medical marijuana for some odd reason. It's boring maybe if you live in the city it might be more fun but in corn and soybean country there's nothing productive to do. They stop selling beer at stores at 1AM. Oh yeah most of the cops are dicks for no reason. There's not that many good jobs, but there seems to be a lot of rich people which doesn't make a whole lot sense, old money I guess?? There's something just off about some areas like they're stuck in time but not in a good way. Some of the people are too.

Most of these demonstrators are paid by the DNC. So you can call them employees from. The DNC is basically a front a much more dangerous cause. Those who always point the finger are those who are always at fault.

Re: “Cleveland March Planned in Solidarity with Women's March on Washington

Oh Chuckles, you seem triggered. I'm guessing that's why you keep resorting to name calling and cursing...hardly the traits of civility.

Ill go another round with you though:

1) If you have evidence of Russian "chicanery", I would suggest you contact the FBI immediately. From all the reports they have issued, I have seen no evidence other that platitudes that "Putin likes Trump", which is no shock given that HRC wanted war. Other than the immediately-debunked PP-gate, there is nothing but conjecture.

2) If you don't think America is a beacon of democracy around the world, you need to study your history and geo-politics.

3) I stated the term delusional was not an insult, and it wasn't. Anyone stating that Trump is not legitimate is delusional - you cannot take the world as it is. That's my point - these "protests" show people to be delusional and out of touch as opposed to the freedom fighters of an insurgent force. They are sore losers.

4) Fractional - Again, fact. Dems are now minorities in the White House, The House of Reps, the Senate, and soon to be the Supreme Court. Republicans now control 33 State governorships and 32 State Legislatures. That's a marginal, fractional party by definition. And the more you double down on the insults, profanity and hate, the further behind your causes will fall.

5) The "popular vote" means absolutely nothing, and never has. Its the same as saying that the Cavs scored more BASKETS last night than the Warriors, and they would win because having some baskets worth 3 points isn't fair. I'm sorry Chuckles, those aren't the rules, and they never were. Trump won, and you could see it coming. His rallies brought tens of thousands, and HRC couldn't scrape together 500 even with Lebron James there!

Look, good luck with your "protest march" on Friday. I stand by my estimates, and hey, if there are more there than I expect, good on you! But the point is, if you want to be heard, stop with the crybully protests, and look inward to your party to understand where you went wrong. Here's a hint - it wasn't Putin that lost you the election.

Re: “Cleveland March Planned in Solidarity with Women's March on Washington

He was democratically elected? Please. The evidence of Russian chicanery makes that statement a sick joke, and I have to laugh at it...and keep from crying. Shining beacon of democracy? Insulting those you disagree with and calling them delusional and fractional and a minority? Your comments have real substance, all right. So does cat shit.

Need I remind you that Orangy Boy LOST the popular vote by THREE MILLION? Yeah, right...a minority...uh huh...tell me another one...

As for the protesters being kids, you will be surprised at who shows up, and how many. Some of us are probably old enough to be your father or grandfather. Don't ASSUME, it makes an ASS out of U and ME...but mostly U.

Have a shitty day!

Re: “Cleveland March Planned in Solidarity with Women's March on Washington

PLEASE quit insulting one another. Problems are never solved responsibly when this occurs. Generally each are not listening to one another's point of view. In my opinion a person is charged up w/ negative words and can only eagerly wait to write their response. It appears the conversation is going no where. Respect for one another no matter what their point of view may be in my mind is the key to solving problems of the world and it starts w/ each one of us and where we are on our journey of life. Sincerely, JARS

Re: “Cleveland March Planned in Solidarity with Women's March on Washington

Oh, the delicious irony of being called an "anonymous troll" by Chuckles the Clown. I realize that I likely violated the rules of your safe space, but I don't much care. You see, my comments had substance and a pint of view. Yours have nothing but curse words and impotent rage. Not that I didn't enjoy it....i really did!

But to that end, you can shout all you like, but it doesn't change the fact of the matter - that Trump is your president, that he was democratically elected, and that the liberals are now a fractional party with control over no branch of government. Sounds like my opinion, and the opinion of the electorate DOES matter, no matter how many silly "protests" you kids attempt to virtue signal with.

But hey, nice cat!

Re: “City of Cleveland Assistant Law Director Arrested for Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct

He was arrested for being intoxicated in a public place. If public intoxication is a violation of a Cleveland Heights ordinance and he was "intoxicated" and in a "public place", the officers acted appropriately. His behavior was atrociously arrogant and unbecoming of an employee in the public service. Moreover, the officers were justified in detaining him to ensure he was not a danger to others and himself. He should be summarily fired by the City of Cleveland regardless of the outcome of the criminal charges. Who sits in their car in the parking lot where they live listening to music, drunk., wildly flailing their arms.? The neighbors who called it in were justifiably concerned and alarmed notwithstanding any justifiable right he may have had to do so. The City of Cleveland should be ashamed for hiring this lawyer. Can't it do better than this?

Re: “Cleveland March Planned in Solidarity with Women's March on Washington

So your only explanation for the failure of your Grand Delusion is bigotry? And you believe that 250,000 women will show up to Washington (I am assuming not Cleveland, which was the topic of the story)? And you believe that because you don't like it, he is not OUR President? I'm afraid you will be taught another painful lesson in the mid-term elections.

I know this will not be pleasant for you - but you are delusional, and i don't mean that as an insult. You simply cannot see the world as it truly is. Cleveland will get 60 women to show if its not raining, 20 if it is. The rest, hopefully, will get on board and try to make America a better place, even if you don't like who occupies the White House.
