Re: “Dumb as Rocks: Q Renovation Will Do Precisely What Leaders Feared

The amount of money the NBA Allstar game will generate for the city is immeasurable, we keep the CAVS and losing one of only 31 franchises in the US will destroy the local economy. When the Brown left we lost many local businesses that have now returned. This is a investment in downtown and is needed to keep the franchise here.

Re: “Admit that John Wick is a Garbage Franchise You Cowards

wow. you very well may be the single most pretentious and boring human being alive. films don't have to be high art to be enjoyable; some films are meant to have great deep meaning that changes the way you view the world, and provide you an avenue with which to really ponder the deeper meanings of life.

some are just fun to watch. not everything has to be thought provoking or deep. admit it, you couldn't think of anything to say. "All this shit is nonsense and I'm realizing that it's not even worth trying to explain." why are you writing an article, then? if it's "not even worth trying to explain" why did you waste our time?

you seem to have completely missed the point, but perhaps you're incapable of having fun, so the point of the film was lost on you. or perhaps sounding like a pretentious windbag is your form of fun. either way, your article is garbage, you coward.

Re: “Dumb as Rocks: Q Renovation Will Do Precisely What Leaders Feared

Im surprised Sam is still alive since he spends so much time outraged. How much money has been wasted on so called education, free medical care, affordable housing, and hundreds of other leftist programs. Ill take what went in with the Q anytime over the social waste and scum in this city. That includes Sam and his pack of leftist comrades at the scene.

Re: “Dumb as Rocks: Q Renovation Will Do Precisely What Leaders Feared

Since when does capitalism mean a private business gets public funding to compete against a public entity? That is almost the opposite of what capitalism stands for. Capitalism is all about public businesses competing for profit....taking public money to compete against a public entity (which would take away more public money) isn't capitalism.

Re: “Dumb as Rocks: Q Renovation Will Do Precisely What Leaders Feared

It's too bad there is so much socialism in Cleveland - for those with the most money, of course.

The two original restaurants cost city and county taxpayers $7,526,027, That is $5.1 million for the Terrace Club in the baseball stadium and $1.8 million in the arena. Nothing too good for the richest among us.

Too bad Cleveland and Cuyahoga county are in such terrible shape. Oh well, the Browns will be visiting taxpayers for a new stadium in the near future. Take it to the bank.

Re: “Dumb as Rocks: Q Renovation Will Do Precisely What Leaders Feared

P3 - couldnt have said it better myself. Would Cleveland be better off without the 3 major sports teams? Simple question. If the answer is no, then they have leverage and we do what ever it takes to keep them here. And again, when you compare the deal the Cavs gave Cleveland for this and compare it to others around the country its pretty fair if not a good deal.

I was a Executive Chef for 40 years b4 retiring and I agree with you. If the general public knew the amount of foreign objects that are allowed in food by the FDA they would never eat again.

Pull the funding. Team leaves. Your problem is bigger than the handout that was received. Team had the leverage. Team won. Dont know what there is to bitch about.

Re: “Once Again Confederate Flags Will Definitely Be on Sale at the Lorain County Fair

Most of the people that fought under that flag either ended up dead or swearing a loyalty oath. Most of the people from that area have been there for generations and had family fight for the Union. Mine included having had a great great grandfather wounded at Fredricksburg and his brother killed in northern Georgia , another at Vicksburg and their father, too old to fight, enlisted to be a camp guard on Johnson Island. We are the sons of Grant and Sherman. This is settled history and that flag a relic.

Re: “Dumb as Rocks: Q Renovation Will Do Precisely What Leaders Feared

Specifically, the strategy is known as "rent seeking:" appropriating public (tax) funds to promote private development...As was the case also with the Convention Center and Global Center For Whatever, this particular appropriation occurred not just without a vote by taxpayers, but despite their strong objections...There is PLENTY of evidence to indicate that such shenanigans are almost always net losers for local economies...except for the corporate oligarchs who benefit directly from the public subsidies...This is the OPPOSITE of economic development: using public funds to enrich private individuals...Everybody, especially the Cavs themselves, were aware they were lying to the public: this was yet another exercise in raw corporate power, facilitated by the goniffs at GCP...

Re: “Dumb as Rocks: Q Renovation Will Do Precisely What Leaders Feared

LOL the city handed $70,000,000.00 over the Cavs, much of which the City had to borrow to pay, but it's not a corporate handout because Lebron4ever "can probably assume that Harry Buffalo did receive some type of handout in regards to some type of tax credit of some sort." CAPITALISM!

Get real, dude.

Re: “Cleveland Says Muni Lot Won't Open Until 2 p.m. for Sunday Night's Browns Game

Hey what a dump, consider that the MORONS who littered the muni lot are the ones to blame here, not Mayor Jackson. How's that for an inconvenience? The idiots of Cuyahoga County - like "What a Dump!" - will stop short of nothing to shift the blame. Jackson is an easy target. You MORONS always pick the low-hanging fruit. Go eat a dick - we don't want you in the city anyway. Idiots.

Re: “Dumb as Rocks: Q Renovation Will Do Precisely What Leaders Feared

EVERY SINGLE ARENA gets a tax credit from that city. (Because it drives MILLIONS of dollars towards that city)

To answer your question, yes Harry Buffalo probably did receive some type of tax credit. I am sure they got SOME type of incentive to open up shop so they can drive additional tax credits.
