Re: “The Most Popular Travel Destinations for Clevelanders in Summer 2017

Cleveland is not "developing into a tourist destination". LOL Fake news! The link is to "This is Cleveland", not a legit source. Cleveland is a failed city, period. These media people acting like we're a tourist destination make me laugh. We're a corrupt, filthy city. Period.

Re: “This Frank Jackson Fundraiser in Gates Mills is Absolutely Insane

Frank has been the mayor for 12 of my 25 years on the Far West Side. Have things gotten better? Crime is up. Cops are invisible. Streets are crumbling and full of holes in the winter and patches in the summer. Trash pickup has gotten more problematic.

Street sweepers only show up when it's the summer before a primary election, and never in the fall--when cleaning is needed the most...all those leaves do get into the sewer system and block the catch basins, doncha know.

We used to see the sweepers regularly when Mike White was in office...and now? Not so much. Once a year if we're lucky, usually a lot less. And we will get TWO a year if we keep Frank? Big fucking deal.

Gotta tell ya...we don't get jackshit from Jackson and his cronies out here. I can only imagine what the inner-city neighborhoods are dealing with..

All I see is yet another four years of kissing the asses of the folks who run downtown "interests" ( big businesses) while continuing to live in gated communities in the boonies, along with their polo ponies and rich cronies.

Time to replace the bumbler-stumbler-fumbler-mumbler with someone who gets it. And who doesn't apologize for having a thug grandson, or shrug it off when yet another stupid shooting kills multiple victims. Time for some new blood that doesn't apologize for the same old bloodshed.

Fedeli is a "hard-core Catholic" for show only. Ask around in the business community and you'll soon discover no one respects this guy.

Re: “This Frank Jackson Fundraiser in Gates Mills is Absolutely Insane

Behind every dollar given and accepted is a favor and a fool. Chaching! This is politics of this era. The so called disenfranchised , code speak for poor folks that will line up like sheep and think they are voting for Frank to gain better city services pertaining to their communities, pay close attention. You give no money, you get no favor, no love.

Let us not forget that Frank has assured you 2 street cleanings a year. Wow! He is in the process of demolishing houses so that children can have a safe rout to school. Wow! It took him 12 years to figure that out. He promised to address the lead issue. His response, doing this would be to severe on the land-lords. So much for the concern of the children. Wow!

That's our boy Frank. Accept the money Frank. Another 4 years of a foolish puppet.

Re: “This Frank Jackson Fundraiser in Gates Mills is Absolutely Insane

Without a doubt Jackson is a puppet and that is how we in the business community like it. The people arent smart enough to realize we run the show. If Jackson doesnt play ball, we will just move our business elsewhere, or threaten to until all give in to our demands.

Re: “This Frank Jackson Fundraiser in Gates Mills is Absolutely Insane

a rich ad executive-turned-restauranteur whines that there's nothing wrong with garnering favor from the wealthy in the first comment *because he is one*.

Might not have ever felt like he's bought and paid for, Al, but his policy is really obvious! Nothing for residents; everything for the CEOs.

Re: “This Frank Jackson Fundraiser in Gates Mills is Absolutely Insane

....and ol' Frank will return to the city and mumble through prepared scripts how he understands the financial and personal fears of residents -- after gleefully ordering the bulldozing of more homes.

We need everyone caring about our city. What's actually wrong with him garnering support from the wealthy? I've never felt like he's the bought and paid for sort of person

Re: “Women Dressed Like Handmaids in Columbus Today To Protest Kasich's 19th Abortion Restriction

Once a woman and a man consent to be togethe r sexually , they must know enough from biology classes that their actions are that of the conception of a new life. They must take this under consideration each and every time the y are together.. There are "no safe" times in a woman's cycle and if she believes there is, she is just fooling herself. She can be as regular and as right as a clock, be on the pill, use condoms, etc. but that mayy be the month that the Man of Miracles steps to give her a gift oor a choice. She is now a mother, whether she wants to be or not. She has a separate entity growing inside her. She may be nourishing iit, protecting iit but that part is no longer "her body." It belongs to someone else entirely. She made the subconscious decision to create it, now she wants someone to be a third party and vacuum iit t of her body? Do they realize how painful that is? Both for you and the baby? You can always convince your brain that it was the right thing to do at the time, but I know from experience, once you can shut the mind off and listen carefully to your heart, you feel it. Not that you could have raised it, but someone else could have given that child a life.
