Re: “Civility Now! Corey Lewandowski Ignites Free Speech Debate in Cleveland

It's like this.

I would like to speak at the City Club. Will they put me on the schedule? No. Are they suppressing my free speech? No.

Therefore, giving Lewandowski a platform to spew lies and bigotry is not a requirement for the City Club (or anyone else) to be "in favor of free speech."

Re: “Civility Now! Corey Lewandowski Ignites Free Speech Debate in Cleveland

Goebbels was in favor of free speech for views he liked. So was Stalin. If youre really in favor of free speech, then youre in favor of freedom of speech for precisely the views you despise. Otherwise, youre not in favor of free speech.

Re: “Tenacious East Cleveland Citizen Journalist Gerald Strothers Has Died

I never met Gerald but I followed his work closely on social media. He was pretty much the only regular source of local news in East Cleveland, and a one man crusade for open and responsible government. The people of EC are definitely worse off now that his voice has been silenced.

Matthew 25:35-40

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.

Truth be told -- such microphones are available to the personalities with the best list of deep-pocketed "sponsors" who will purchase tickets for the event. And the free national publicity the City Club of Cleveland will be receiving over the next several weeks is a bottom line winner.

Re: “Civility Now! Corey Lewandowski Ignites Free Speech Debate in Cleveland

remember: 'dissenters' who don't seem to actually dissent from much other than journalism and who punch journalists are good.

dissenters who disagree with Malthroup bringing in a lame-o, violent gas bag, though are THE REAL VOICE OF INTERANCE and should go to hell.

okay sure

Re: “Husband and Father of Four Deported From Cleveland, Despite Community Efforts

I am so warmed and feel safer now that our laws are being enforced. I would add that this man and his family should be required to pay back any "benefits" that tax payers footed the bill for while he escaped detection. Minus any taxes he paid of course.
What is appalling and should surprise every Citizen is that so many criminals have been allowed to stay in our country in direct opposition to our laws and borders. Hallelujah Donald Trump and all our enforcement agencies. Finally we have a country again.

Re: “Tenacious East Cleveland Citizen Journalist Gerald Strothers Has Died

Gerald Strothers was a one of a kind, fearless, dedicated and smart reporter. His passing leaves a void that will never be filled.Thank you for acknowledging the passing of this East Cleveland giant. His name will forever be synonymous with East Cleveland.

Re: “Husband and Father of Four Deported From Cleveland, Despite Community Efforts

So stay with me for a second. 117 people each day are killed in automobile accidents. Many if not most of these involve vehicles moving at excessive speeds. This isn't even counting damage and injuries that must occur daily due to people driving above the speed limit. It is against the law to speed in every state. It is safe to say this is a crime that effects all of us. It certainly harms far more people than illegal immigration does on a daily basis.
We have the means to enforce these laws, cars engines can be capped at certain speeds for example or further widespread police enforcement could be enacted. Strangely nobody cries out against speeding, something that is far more likely to effect them and the ones they love. Why is that? Why isn't everyone shouting about enforcing those laws? Those laws would make their neighborhoods much safer.
It couldn't be that people only want to see laws enforced that they themselves don't break... no that couldn't be it. It certainly wouldn't be because immigration laws target a small subset of people (who generally happen to have darker skin), no that can't be it. I'm sure all these people are purely motivated about upholding laws and aren't just driven by fear and hate.
For real horror stories of illegal immigration you'd have to go and talk to the Native Americans....

I have been a friend of Jerry (known in PA as Jerry DJ) since we were not more than teens. He truly is a class act that will be forever missed. Fly high, Jerry.

And Happy Birthday in Heaven. Love ya!

Re: “Husband and Father of Four Deported From Cleveland, Despite Community Efforts

"His children, who are Americans, will have to go through life without a father." Why? They can move to Mexico with him. If America is so evil for enforcing its laws, they can cross illegally into Mexico to see their father and see how well that works out for them. Or they can all illegally go into Canada. Or Nicaragua. Or Panama. Or Costa Rica. Or Chile. Or Brazil. Or Argentina. Or Colombia. Or Peru...etc.

I never knew that a petition could save someone if they break a law. Interesting strategy.

After one misunderstanding, he was always good to me. Always supportive. I'll miss him immensely.

Re: “Horse Collapses Downtown, Igniting Renewed Fury Over Horse-Drawn Carriages in Cleveland

It's alright for horses to have jobs and do work, they have done that for centuries. The problem is being mistreated by their owners. This is a horrible story and if that poor horse is being "retired" someone should have the opportunity to adopt him so that he can live out the rest of his years in a pasture. Otherwise he will go Sugar Creek and the slaughterhouse. That will be his reward for his years of hard work.
