Re: “Mom Duct Tapes Son's Face, Charged by Police

Did the kid have any eyebrows and eyelashes left after the tape was removed? The kid got an unexpected face wax.

Re: “Ohio Is Racist, Says Harvard Study

Oh, so eastern Ohio is racist? Hmmm, could it also be the heart of coal production and power generation use in Ohio? The same product that Obama wants to eliminate? Imagine a candidate touting elimination of a product you are associated with and/or employed by. Would you support that candidate knowing you could be soon standing in the unemployment line? Be honest and look at your family when you truthfully answer the question.

Re: “Ohio Is Racist, Says Harvard Study

Bond, even the so-called "native " occupiers of the North American Continent were at one time "invaders". The real estate currently occupied by the USA was invaded by the first "humans". Most scientists speculate human settlement of the Americas was accomplished from Asia via travel along the Bering Straits and down along the canadian seaboard. Do you actually think native americans were here at the beginning of life on this planet? Even when Pangea was a single mass of land (before plate techtonics split it up into individual continents) there were no homonoids roaming the earth.

Re: “Minor Found Working at Local Strip Club (Updated)

All depends on how good the fake ID is. Being a former door person at a few clubs, I've come across many good fake ID's and I'm sure the better quality ones got by me too. Its almost to the point you need a magnifying glass to catch them. I've also seen real ID's that minors get by going to the BMV with fake birth certificates. I remember a few years ago some local BMV workers got caught stealing supplies to make the fake ID's. For the right amount of money, there are ID's that even fool the cops.

Re: “The Plain Dealer Can't Stop Complimenting Former Mayor Mike White For Some Reason

Just remember White was part of the team that drove Modell out of Cleveland. Modell had a contract to maintain the old Cleveland Municipal Stadium. He did it with the proceeds from the Indians and special events rent money. When the Indians were given a new stadium, Modell, knowing he was losing his biggest renter, went to Mayor White-D and the County (with Hagan-D at the helm, Boyle-D, and Petro-R) to ask for $130 million to fix up the 50 yr old stadium. They told him no. Knowing he'd be in financial trouble if he stayed, Modell moved the team.

Sad thing is, one year later we paid almost $300 million to build the new Browns Stadium for the current faux Browns and a few years later that old Browns team won a Super Baltimore. Thank you White, Hagan, Boyle, and Petro.

Re: “The Final Congressional Resume of Dennis Kucinich

Eric: take off your rose colored glasses.

1st) The Ameritrust issue: Yes, Dennis opposed the sale of Muny Light. But he went about it in the wrong way. Just like today, he has never learned to negotiate or compromise. The following Mayor, Voinovich, also opposed the sale of Muny Light. But....he negotiated and accomplished two things, saving Muny Light and getting Cleveland out of default. THAT was something Dennis couldn't do and he still hasn't learned to do it.
2) Dennis accomplished NOTHING regarding the two wars. Dennis was invisible to the national Democrat party and the Republicans. Dennis got about 1% of the Democrat party vote each of the two times he ran for president...1%!!!. In August of 2008, the US government, during Bush's last year in office, signed an agreement with the Iraqi government and set a date for the first troop withdrawal from Iraq beginning in 2010 and ending in 2011. Obama wasn't president for 5 more months. The withdrawal rate of the fighting troops actually lagged, because Obama listened to the military advisors, nearly the same advisors under Bush in his 2nd term. Then Obama ramped up the troops in Afganistan, just like Bush did with the surge in Iraq. No, no, no, both presidents ignored Dennis. The only time Obama paid any attention to Dennis was when Obama wanted Dennis to change his vote on the Healtcare Bill. One ride on Air Force 1 and Dennis changed his vote. I just wish I knew what Obama promised him in return for the vote change.
Kaptur has accomplished much more than Dennis ever did.
3) During Dennis' tenure starting in what? 1996 or 1998? The population of the Cleveland area has continued to decrease and business continued to leave. He had about 16 years to come up with a plan to save the jobs and businesses. The biggest private business save? Hugo Boss. How as it accomplished? By getting the workers to take a pay cut from $14/hr to just under $10/hr. That a $4/hr pay cut or a 35% decrease in wages!!! Thats an accomplishment for the worker? That company got what they always wanted. Hell, if the GM & Chrysler union and salary workers had taken a 35% pay cut, no bailout would have been necessary in the auto industry, saving us taxpayers billions.
