The Stuff of RPCC's Wildest Dreams

First, off I have very little time to do this post justice today...I have to get to bible study.  So, let me start the conversation and fire a few shots over the bow.

Frank Russo et al. have demonstrated to the RPCC how to run an effective County Party Organization.  Disclaimer:  the GC Young RINO does not and never will endorse bloated, wasteful, criminally run, etc. government.  However, I do endorse effective County PArty Organizations.  So, I will be taking the RPCC leadership to school this week.

Lesson one:  The Raw Dealer attributes Mr. (Ms.) Russo's success to a very well organized politcal machine that includes none other than FILLED Precinct Committee Seats, Ward leaders, etc. that can be dispatched at moments notice is one for you guys...HELP CANDIDATES.

Webster's definition of help"


1.make it easier for (someone) to do something by offering one's services of financial or material aid

e.g. County Democrats Help their canidates with an effective county party organization that includes people with warm bodies and an IQ on the Central and Executive Committee.

e.g. County Republicans are too inept at the moment to be any help to their candidates because they have to raise money to pay for an expensive rent, party credit cards, etc.

I  am as certain about RPCC leadership whining about Russo this week as I am about the sun setting tonight.

Chairman Frost:

Please, please, please don't embarrass yourself this week.  I know.  Frank Russo and company are very wasteful, probably corrupt, and even indictable if the Feds looked hard enough.  But, you should take note at what an organized and effective County Party can accomplish.  Before you go off half cocked this week think about organizing the party...meeting at times when normal people can come...and asking for their help in hitting the streets to get some coherent message out.

Don't blow this opportunity.

I am trying really hard to stick only to county issues RIGHT now.  But, this picture sums things up too well.

This guy would fit in good with County Democrats.  A County Democrat party hack recently told me to come join the "winning" team.  Now, the County Democrats have won almost every election around here but the County keeps losing.  Think its time to change play books RPCC?

Or, are we just going to keep making excuses that the area is toooooooooo Democrat...the base numbers...blah blah blah.

How long do let arrogant, haughty democrats keep a stranglehold on our County?

WHEN WE GET TIRED ENOUGH OF RPCC STATUS QUO...things have a chance of changing.

Judge orders Minutemen's Adopt-A-Highway permit reinstated

King's Right Site joins ALIPAC in congratulating Jeff Schwilk founder of the San Diego Minutemen, in taking on Mexifornia's Transportation Dept. - Caltrans - and winning!

From ALIPAC --

A federal judge on Friday ordered the state Transportation Department to let a controversial group of anti-illegal immigration activists pick up litter near a Border Patrol checkpoint.

In a 34-page order, Judge William Q. Hayes granted the San Diego Minutemen's request for a preliminary injunction that gives Caltrans 30 days to reinstate the group's Adopt-A-Highway permit for a 2-mile stretch of Interstate 5 near San Clemente.

The state also must restore the courtesy sign bearing the Minutemen's name, the judge ruled.

The judge's decision enables the North County group to once again pick up trash alongside the busy freeway while its lawsuit against Caltrans officials is pending.

"We expected that on all counts," said the Minutemen's attorney, Howard Kaloogian, when he learned of the judge's decision from a reporter Friday night. "This basically tells us that our case is solid and will probably win on the merits."

The state's Adopt-A-Highway program allows individuals, organizations and businesses to clean stretches of roadway that meet certain safety standards. The groups are recognized with simple roadside signs.

In November, Caltrans made national news when it granted the Minutemen, a group that has gained wide publicity for protesting day-labor hiring sites, permission to clean the northbound stretch of I-5. More...

60 yr old teacher has threesome with students

How gross is this!

From WND --

A 60-year-old science teacher at the Brevard County Juvenile Detention Center in Florida has been arrested and charged with 15 counts of unlawful sex with minors and one count of filing a false police report.

Palm Bay police said Adrienne Laflamme told her 17-year-old student to conceal their sexual liaisons, including a threesome with a third student, and drug use so she wouldn't lose her job, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

She reportedly began the four-week heated affair with the inmate student within days of his release. The boy's mother said the teacher regularly picked the boy up from their home to have sex with him at her own residence.

The affair continued for several weeks, and Laflamme had sex with the student at least 15 times, including one threesome with a 14-year-old boy. More...

Laflamme has been added to WND's ever-growing list of female teachers that have had sex with students.

The boys mom is an idiot! What type of parent would allow their child to be picked up by a teacher from the detention center he just was released from?

As for the poor boys.... it's just a shame she wasn't a young hottie!

Another Democrat Judge in Cuyahoga County fails residents - AGAIN!

Another great job of the Democrat judges in Cuyahoga County protecting the citizens...

From the PD --
Thirty minutes after a 20-year-old Cleveland man was released from jail Friday, police said the man celebrated his freedom by breaking into his ex-girlfriend's house and stabbing her boyfriend.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Stuart Friedman found Miguel Hernandez not guilty June 11 on charges of kidnapping, aggravated robbery and felonious assault. He was accused of using a pipe to beat up another man.

Hernandez remained in jail on a separate charge of receiving stolen property. His attorney asked for a lower bond last week, and Friedman granted the request. After nearly four months behind bars, Hernandez left jail Friday about 3:30 p.m.

Great job Judge Stuie! And what did the Judge Stuie have to say for himself...
The judge declined to comment on what Hernandez did after his release. The evidence against Hernandez was weak on the kidnapping, aggravated robbery and felonious assault charges, and a co-defendant was found guilty on the charges, Friedman said.

"The evidence was insufficient to find Mr. Hernandez guilty," Friedman said.

The bond commission recommended a lower bond because Hernandez didn't have a prior record and was being held on a nonviolent offense.

"It would have been unconstitutional to not let him out," Friedman said.

Seems odd that the evidence was strong enough for Hernandez's co-defendant to be found guilty of the original charges, but Judge Stuie found Hernandez not guilty. After being told by prosecutors that Hernandez is a continual problem and presiding over a case that accused Hernandez of violent behavior - Judge Stuie felt he knew best!

Judge Stuie is known for a lack of rational decisions on the bench. Friedman has reduced domestic violence charges on a defendant previously convicted of domestic violence. Judge Stuie's reasoning - unless a couple is married - no domestic violence charges can be filed...

From the Boston Globe --
A judge has ruled that Ohio's new constitutional ban on gay marriage prohibits filing domestic violence charges against unmarried people, a decision that prompted an immediate appeal by prosecutors.

Judges and others across the country have been waiting for a ruling on how the gay marriage ban, among the nation's broadest, would affect Ohio's 25-year-old domestic violence law, which previously was not limited to married people.

The ruling Wednesday by Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Stuart Friedman changed a felony domestic violence charge against Frederick Burk to a misdemeanor assault charge.

Judge Friedman ran unopposed in 2006. Judge Stuie is running for 8th District Court of Appeals in this upcoming election against Republican candidate Brian Moriarty. The last thing we need is an activist judge like Friedman legislating from the bench of the Appeals Court!

For the safety of Cuyahoga County residents - Judge Stuart A. Friedman MUST NOT BE RE-ELECTED!

Sheriff Joe Takes Shaq's Badge

Here is another example why Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County (AZ) is known as the best law enforcement official in the U.S.

Sheriff Joe, never to be one impressed by stature, took Shaq's honorary badge after hearing of his racist and vulgar rap about Kobe.

From ESPN --

Shaquille O'Neal will lose his special deputy's badge in Maricopa County because of language he used in a rap video that mocks former teammate Kobe Bryant.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said the Phoenix Suns center's use of a racially derogatory word and other foul language left him no choice. Arpaio made Shaq a special deputy in 2006 and promoted him to colonel of his largely ceremonial posse later that year.

"I want his two badges back," Arpaio told The Associated Press on Tuesday. "Because if any one of my deputies did something like this, they're fired. I don't condone this type of racial conduct." More...

If you can stand Shaq's garbled garbage, beside making fun of Kobe, Shaq makes a remark — “White boys trying to be more Ni**er than me.”

No big deal? Bull! It is a perfect example of the dysfunctional democrap double standard and liberal logheads of the left selecting speech that they deem is acceptable.

Anybody remember the outrage when earlier this year Rep. Geoff Davis of KY called Obama a “boy” and was forced to apologize for making "racist" remarks?

This is what I call the left’s push for a new version of Free Speech - Selective Free Speech!

Girlieman of the Week - Lloyd Clarke

From Politically Incorrect Gazette --

Girlieman of the Week
Date Awarded: June 27, 2008

Girlieman: Lloyd Clarke
Antics: Relentless whining

Frankemuth (Michigan) is a town with a rich, well known, proudly proclaimed, religious history. Founded by Lutheran missionaries, it was, from the start, a town dedicated to preserving Lutheran traditions. Over the years, that resolve has held steadfast, making Frankenmuth’s population one of the highest concentrations of Lutherans in the Midwest.

Thanks to a newcomer to town, Lloyd Clarke, Frankenmuth’s Lutheran traditions are under assault. A long term denizen of Michigan, this 66-year-old whiner moved from Bay City to be closer to family members who live in, and around, Frankenmuth. At first, everything was spiffy for Lloyd, until, one ignoble day, he roused himself from his ‘can’t we all get along’ coma then started going to war over all the crosses that are prominently displayed on ‘public’ land.

One day, Lloyd noticed the crosses on bridge in town. Lloyd worried that some heretofore content Jews, Mecca Maniacs, or other non Cross Cultists, might get a boo-boo from them. Given ‘no choice’, this peace puke, former Green Party state senate candidate, caterwauled until the city removed the crosses from that bridge.

Just getting started, this cretin painted his differently-religious bull’s-eye on the cross in a city park and the one on the city seal. That’s why, tired of Lloyd’s crap, rank and file Frankenmuth citizens exercised their right to free speech and excoriated Lloyd for being a complete and utter asshat about Frankenmuth’s supernaturalist roots. After the heat became intolerable, he started to whine about being picked on by his neighbors. When even the tykes started blistering his sorry, whiner, butt, Lloyd bailed out of his quest to make Frankenmuth ‘safe’ for the differently-religious.

Frankenmuth has been doing just fine, without Lloyd, since the mid 1800s. It didn't start spouting crosses just to piss him off. If crosses piss him off, that's his personal problem, not the town's. This pagan scribbler thinks Lloyd needs to get over himself, and it, or get out of Dodge. He's the kind of scumbag who gives the differently-religious a bad name. It's time for him to shut up and sit down.

For giving a hornets’ nest a swift kick, then complaining, when he got stung by outraged true believer wasps...for being a whining piece of crap...for picking an unnecessary fight and lacking the spine to see it through to the end, Lloyd Clarke is the Politically Incorrect Gazette’s Girlieman of the Week.

Excited Tools in Cuyahoga County

Well if you don't know by now your friends down at the local elephant pen have started this new thing called a web-log, or "blog" for short.

Here is a link to the rules and regulations of this new "blog":

Read the last sentence someone calls them self an excited tool. Too funny.

We here at King's right Site believe in growing the party. So, I/we are not going to stonewall RPCC's effort to be a tool...goal to be tools...look like tools...or, whatever. Instead, we are going to help them look like the tools that the rules and regulation page says they are.

So here we is our help at making them into the tools that they stated they are.

First off...those down at $40, 000/year digs...without parking...are living in the same land that our friend the unicorn and rabbit are living in under the rainbow if they think they are going to accomplish anything meaningful with that format. Let's start at home boys. We have a lot of problems within the limits of Cuyahoga County, let's discuss local stuff. These problems are not just amongst our neighbors...they exist within the anemic, no influence having, poorly run RPCC. Second off, who are they kidding? No one is going to post what they honestly think under their real name with the mood of today's RPCC. Today's RPCC is like a middle school clique of girls. If "the cool girls" don't like you...forget are not going to sit at their cocktail table. Don't even think of being a part of. So, you think I am going to use my name to make even tactful posts? I am not even talking about childish posts in which we refer to the party's leadership as no more effective than a brownie troop.

How about the RPCC have some real discussions amongst itself. Like...oh....let's do we grow the party? How do we get more than 50 people, 25 space cadettes, and some dinosaurs out to Independence at 5:00 PM on a work day? Only 80 people if that regularly show up to joint meeting of the central and executive committee. Furthermore, the RPCC routinely allows Ohio Revised Code to be broken by people who do not domicile in a particular voting precinct to stay seated.

ANSWERS: Recruit Central Committee Men with a pulse and an IQ bigger than their belt size...stopping holding meetings when normal people are working (thereby making the party more accessible)...stop humiliating us with lame build strong ward organizations...come-up with a contract for Cuyahoga County (not that lame piece of crap reform initiative that t00k 41 vote majority to beat)...yawn. Don't demean hardworking ward leaders and allow their personal information to be distributed at party conventions in order to intimidate I have to keep going?

No. I don't think some people at the County Elephant Pen are interested in that. Instead, they are frolicking with the unicorn and rabbit over spending on an office.

Maybe if you guys tried a little harder and listened to the base (e.g. not stone wall and not follow party procedure when very active dedicated members asked for items to be put on an agenda and speak...ahem...April 12th...RINOs giving to to the ODP...cough cough) and actually were tools in building an effective county party I would not have to waste my time on entries like this.

Bo$$ Hogg and the Rino's Made Me Do This

I have learned in life that things are not always what they seem. For instance, if someone is taking you out for free will end up paying more in the long run. Despite the moniker...make NO MISTAKE! I am unapologetically conservative. However, in order to navigate the waste filled waters of cuyahoga county's republican party a conservative can not always "appear" as they are if they want to get anyting done. Trust me. First off, I get a kick of the irony. Ask, King. The name and the comments make him and my friends laugh. However, the nature of what I am trying to accomplish here (i.e. with these posts on this blog and some forthcoming projects) is anything but funny. Actually, this matter is a crying , gut-wrenching, unforgivable shame.

A few years ago some people amongst us decided that they were too in love with there titles, appointments to useless committees, and invites to every party to do anything about the strangle hold that a certain political party was developing on our region. A friend summed it up well: they would rather be mayor of the card board store front town than nothing at all. These same people are just as complicit as Cuyahoga County Democrats are for making the area such an easy commute. What do I mean? If you look around your car a rush hour on 71 and 90 and there are several car lengths between you and the next guy doing 70 mph...not a lot of people are going anywhere...because THEY ARE NOT HERE! They are leaving!

It is not just the GC Young RINO that thinks does the daily fish wrap! When people laugh at you for wanting to stay in the can' really find a high paying job unless you move...Jimmy (who will be referred to as Boss hog from here on out)...we have a problem!

This County has taxed and chased out so many of its residences and businesses it is a shame.

This county is the albatross that should be hung around the neck of every proud Democrat in this area. You guys have sunk the area. The county and city Democrats have allowed Cuyahoga to rot from the core out. At 433, 000 and dwindling...the recipient of the country's most impoverished (poorest) city title several times in the past few years...county and city Democrats should be proud. a family member on the county payroll via a patronage appointment (more on that later) told me I should "join the winning team." Winning team? At the expense of my community losing...real nice.

Now, this guy got his job because of his political first glance that would make most of you groan. However, I recently told a long time veteran republican friend that who can blame people for feeding at Bo$$ Hogg'$ (Jimmy Dimora's...last time I will remind you) trough. Pat O'malley et al.'s patronage machine is the sign of an effective county party organization (listen up some of you who check here regularly). Now, that may not be good for the region, but it shows that a certain political party knows how to get things done.

Which brings me back to the other part of the equation. The check and balance in our political system are elections between people...usually of opposite offer an alternative to the other when they are not doing there job. Not Cuyahoga County though. Cuyahoga County Republicans keep drinking the party kool aid. " know...look at the base vote...blah blah blah...we could never expect to...blah blah blah...." I am not drinking the kool aid anymore.
I am going RINO hunting. Unfortunately many of the old geezers around the party and other space cadets were too satisfied with the title of ward leader ( with no one to lead...check how many committee men you have)...appointments to policy committees that could not make or enforce policy...and tolerating excuses instead of leadership to notice the fat guy consolidating power and control of your tax dolalrs on the fourth floor of Lake Side Avenue.

Good jobs guys! Now, we are looking for a few good men to help clean-up the mess. Let's get the RINO hunting over...and take this thin back. Just remember...some of us will have to wear camouflage to get things done at first.


Bush was right about "The Surge"

Bob Frantz of The Big One - WTAM 1100, posted a great article on his message board that was printed in the fishwrap - NYT - written by David Brooks.

Frantz hits it on the head about the article when he states -

"Get used to that statement. Because it will be reprinted in textbooks in the year 2050, and for generations to come. The following, from the ultra-liberal NY Times, no less, on our President's courageous decision to carry on toward victory, abandoning calls for defeat, when things were their darkest in Iraq."

The Bush Paradox

Published: June 24, 2008

Let’s go back and consider how the world looked in the winter of 2006-2007. Iraq was in free fall, with horrific massacres and ethnic cleansing that sent a steady stream of bad news across the world media. The American public delivered a stunning electoral judgment against the Iraq war, the Republican Party and President Bush.

All Conversations » Expert and elite opinion swung behind the Baker-Hamilton report, which called for handing more of the problems off to the Iraqi military and wooing Iran and Syria. Republicans on Capitol Hill were quietly contemptuous of the president while Democrats were loudly so.

Democratic leaders like Senator Harry Reid considered the war lost. Barack Obama called for a U.S. withdrawal starting in the spring of 2007, while Senator Reid offered legislation calling for a complete U.S. pullback by March 2008.

The arguments floating around the op-ed pages and seminar rooms were overwhelmingly against the idea of a surge — a mere 20,000 additional troops would not make a difference. The U.S. presence provoked violence, rather than diminishing it. The more the U.S. did, the less the Iraqis would step up to do. Iraq was in the middle of a civil war, and it was insanity to put American troops in the middle of it.

When President Bush consulted his own generals, the story was much the same. Almost every top general, including Abizaid, Schoomaker and Casey, was against the surge. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was against it, according to recent reports. Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki called for a smaller U.S. presence, not a bigger one.

In these circumstances, it’s amazing that George Bush decided on the surge. And looking back, one thing is clear: Every personal trait that led Bush to make a hash of the first years of the war led him to make a successful decision when it came to this crucial call.

Bush is a stubborn man. Well, without that stubbornness, that unwillingness to accept defeat on his watch, he never would have bucked the opposition to the surge.

Bush is an outrageously self-confident man. Well, without that self-confidence he never would have overruled his generals.

In fact, when it comes to Iraq, Bush was at his worst when he was humbly deferring to the generals and at his best when he was arrogantly overruling them. During that period in 2006 and 2007, Bush stiffed the brass and sided with a band of dissidents: military officers like David Petraeus and Raymond Odierno, senators like John McCain and Lindsey Graham, and outside strategists like Fred Kagan of the American Enterprise Institute and Jack Keane, a retired general.

Bush is also a secretive man who listens too much to Dick Cheney. Well, the uncomfortable fact is that Cheney played an essential role in promoting the surge. Many of the people who are dubbed bad guys actually got this one right.

The additional fact is that Bush, who made such bad calls early in the war, made a courageous and astute decision in 2006. More than a year on, the surge has produced large, if tenuous, gains. Violence is down sharply. Daily life has improved. Iraqi security forces have been given time to become a more effective fighting force. The Iraqi government is showing signs of strength and even glimmers of impartiality. Iraq has moved from being a failed state to, as Vali Nasr of the Council on Foreign Relations has put it, merely a fragile one.

The whole episode is a reminder that history is a complicated thing. The traits that lead to disaster in certain circumstances are the very ones that come in handy in others. The people who seem so smart at some moments seem incredibly foolish in others.

The cocksure war supporters learned this humbling lesson during the dark days of 2006. And now the cocksure surge opponents, drunk on their own vindication, will get to enjoy their season of humility. They have already gone through the stages of intellectual denial. First, they simply disbelieved that the surge and the Petraeus strategy was doing any good. Then they accused people who noticed progress in Iraq of duplicity and derangement. Then they acknowledged military, but not political, progress. Lately they have skipped over to the argument that Iraq is progressing so well that the U.S. forces can quickly come home.

But before long, the more honest among the surge opponents will concede that Bush, that supposed dolt, actually got one right. Some brave souls might even concede that if the U.S. had withdrawn in the depths of the chaos, the world would be in worse shape today.

Life is complicated. The reason we have democracy is that no one side is right all the time. The only people who are dangerous are those who can’t admit, even to themselves, that obvious fact.
Go visit the message board... you will love some of the comments left by the left. Trust me - they are NOT thrilled spitless about Bush being right about the surge!

Ohio Man given 6 month sentence for having sex outdoors

This is an update on a previous post.

Back in March I posted on a Bellvue, OH man, Art Price Jr., who was arrested for having sex in public. Price was recently in court and was sentenced to 6 months in jail on public indecency charges after pleading no contest.

The charges stem from a videotape made by a neighbor. Price, who is married with children, was caught on tape having sex outdoors on four occasions....

Bellevue Police Captain Matt Johnson says Art Price, Jr., 40, was seen on four occasions between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and noon having sex with his picnic table.

The neighbor -- who wishes to remain anonymous -- saw Price walk out onto his deck, stand a round metal table on its side and use the hole in the umbrella to have sex.

"The first video we had, he was completely nude. He would use the hole from the umbrella and have sex with the table," Johnson says.

I wonder if he will have to register as a sex offender of patio furniture?!? Should there be restrictions that he must stay at least 500' from any picnic area or Lawn & Garden section of stores?

800 pound Bronze Enema Monument

And I thought the Penis Museum was a crazy idea...

From WND --
A giant, bronze monument to the enema has been erected as a tribute to the cleansing procedure.

An 800-pound syringe bulb held by three cherubs has been unveiled at the Mashuk-Akva Term spa in Zheleznovodsk, Russia.
"There is no kitsch or obscenity, it is a successful work of art," spa director Alexander Kharchenko told the Associated Press. "An enema is almost a symbol of our region."

The spa is located in the Caucasus Mountains region, where mineral springs enemas are routinely sought after to provide digestive relief.

The 5-foot monument reportedly cost $42,000 and took center stage in the spa square last week.

A spa sign proclaimed, "Let's beat constipation and sloppiness with enemas," referencing a Soviet comedy called "The Twelve Chairs."

The enema bulb sculptor, Svetlana Avakina, said she was inspired by Italian Renaissance painter Alessandro Botticelli's angels when she created the bronze tuber, and she designed it with "irony and humor."

"This device is eternal, it will never change," she said. "We could promote this brand, turn it into a franchise with souvenirs and awards for medical doctors."

Rev. Strickland lifts Pay Freeze

Must be nice huh?

How many readers out there are eligible for a raise twice a year?

From the PD --
Columbus- Gov. Ted Strickland has lifted a salary freeze for high-earning managers in his administration, though no one is guaranteed to see an increase this summer.

Strickland's reversal is not so much a kind gesture as it is an attempt to keep upper-level managers from leaving their posts in frustration over pay, apparently a growing concern within the administration.

The governor last year froze the salaries of all nonunion, senior-level management jobs - about 6.5 percent of the 57,454 employees under him - which otherwise were eligible for a pay increase of up to 3.5 percent twice in 2007. More...
I sure am glad we did not have any budget problems this year! Agency heads will be allowed to give raises ranging from 0% - 3.5%.

If Rev. Ted feels raises should be given - he should take it out of his pay and the pay of his agency heads!

Drafting Guys over 60

A friend of mine who is a Vietnam vet sent this to me...

Drafting Guys over 60

New Direction for any war: Send Service Vets over 60!

I am over 60 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ass-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn't be able to join a military unit until you're at least 35.

For starters:

Researchers say 18-year-olds think about sex every 10 seconds. Old guys only think about sex a couple of times a day, leaving us more than 28,000 additional seconds per day to concentrate on the enemy.

Young guys haven't lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier is a dangerous soldier. "My back hurts! I can't sleep, I'm tired and hungry" We are impatient and maybe letting us kill some asshole that desperately deserves it will make us feel better and shut us up for a while.

An 18-year-old doesn't even like to get u p before 10 a.m. Old guys always get up early to pee so what the hell. Besides, like I said, "I'm tired and can't sleep and since I'm already up, I may as well be up killing some fanatical son-of-a-bitch.

If captured we couldn't spill the beans because we'd forget where we put them. In fact, name, rank, and serial number woul d be a real brainteaser.

Boot camp would be easier for old guys. We're used to getting screamed and yelled at and we're used to soft food. We've also developed an appreciation for guns. We've been using them for years as an excuse to get out of the house, away from the screaming and yelling..

They could lighten up on the obstacle course however. I've been in combat and didn't see a singl e 20-foot wall with rope hanging over the side, nor did I ever do any pushups after completing basic training.

Actually, the running part is kind of a waste of energy, too. I've never seen anyone outrun a bullet.

An 18-year-old has the whole world ahead of him. He's still learning to shave, to start up a conversation with a pretty girl. He still hasn't figured out that a baseball cap has a brim to shade his eyes, not the back of his head.

These are all great reasons to keep our kids at home to learn a little more about life before sending them off into harm's way.

Let us old guys track down those dirty rotten coward terrorists. The last thing an enemy would want to see is a couple of million pissed off old farts with attitudes and automatic weapons who know that their best years are already behind them.

If nothing else, put us on border patrol....we will have it secured the first night!

Barack Obama Exposed

Barack Obama is is exposing himself to be nothing more than a politician. Yes, I am sure the Obamaton's do not yet realize this, but people of sane minds can clearly see him for what he is - "a typical politician."

Supported by "head in your ass" adulation from his Obamacrats and a licentious love fest from the MSM, without fear of being exposed as a fraud & a flip-flopper, Barack Obama morphs into Messiah Barry.

In perpetuating this charade, Messiah Barry is fully aware he must skew the truth in order for him to screw the country.

After serving only 143 days in office and not sponsoring and/or passing one piece of meaningful legislation - the first order of this charade is making the candidate who spun gold look like he has accomplished something meaningful...

From National Review Online --
Barack Obama released his first general election ad on Friday... It’s a well made ad, but it also offers an example of the kind of brazen padding of the resume that Obama will inevitably need to engage in, and which will carry serious risks for him.

About 46 seconds into the ad, we are told that Obama “passed laws” that “extended healthcare for wounded troops who’d been neglected,” and in the usual manner of these political commercials we are given a little citation at the bottom.

The citation reads “Public Law 110-181 1/28/08”. That law is the only federal legislation cited in the ad — the other two items mentioned were from the Illinois legislature and referred to other issues raised in the ad.

Public Law 110-181 was the 2008 defense authorization bill. It passed the Senate by 91 to 3 in January, with six Senators not voting. Among those six absentees was Barack Obama. So he cites a bill he didn’t even vote for.
The next part of this equation is making Obama palatable for all voters. That means even the gun-toting, Bible thumping rednecks he dislikes. For this task they enlisted the help of none other than the American Traitor - John Kerry. Sliding on this foot protection with rubber soles, flip-flops, Messiah Barry continues his hunt to prey on American souls...

From US News --
From where I sit, flip-flopping is an unbeatable addiction for Obama. For McCain, by comparison, it's an occasional foible.
  • He [Obama] ripped Hillary Clinton for months for voting to list Iran's Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization. Days after Clinton conceded, Obama flipped and said he supported the definition.

  • Obama repeatedly vowed to meet with various heads of terror states—most notably Ahmadinejad of Iran—"without preconditions." Then, with the nomination in sight, he zigzagged: "There's no reason why we would necessarily meet with Ahmadinejad. He's not the most powerful person in Iran."

  • In October, he supported NAFTA expansion. In March, campaigning in the Ohio primary, he called for a "reopening" of the trade pact's terms. This week, he called his own primary rhetoric "overheated" and said NAFTA has had a positive effect on the US economy.

  • Yesterday, after signaling opposition to nuclear power, he told Democratic governors he's open to expanding it."

All Hail the Thief!

More on Cuyahoga County Reform & The Plain Dealer

The following is part of a post by Roldo Bartimole at Cleveland Leader about the PD and the push for reform in Cuyahoga County.

If you are a Cuyahoga County resident you must click the link and read the whole story. it is by far, the best and most informative post I have read on this area and this issue.

From the Cleveland Leader --

Maybe the Plain Dealer should stick to reporting news and issuing editorial opinions and stop looking foolish by trying to be a state legislature instead of a newspaper.

The newspaper’s ill-advised attempt to get County Commissioner Tim Hagan to lead the charge on “reform” of county government stumbled clumsily with a rebuke from the elected state legislature.

The newspaper – with Hagan in the lead and a tag-along Republican Party – tried to get state legislation, as is needed, to change Cuyahoga County government. The Ohio Senate, however, felt differently and dumped a reform amendment hastily attached to other legislation.

The PD yowled, “The Ohio Senate is about to prove that it couldn’t care less about the democratic rights of Cuyahoga County residents.” More...

Roldo accurately points out that this ill-fated stab at reform would consolidate power for the commissioners, particularly Hagan. Trust me - the arrogant Hagan with more power - is the last thing this county needs!

I agree with Roldo that a county reform is sorely needed. I would personally opt for a county executive style of reform. It should be noted that Hagan was vehemently against a county reform measure in 1980 when he was head of the Cuyahoga County Democrat Party. He also refuses to look at a 1990 reform study conducted by Kathleen Barber, former political scientist at John Carroll University. Many would say both of these plans are better than the latest put forth by Hagan and the PD.

Back to the PD.... The Patronage Dealer (Plain Dealer), who has money & staffing problems of their own, has highlighted and recently taken issue with the patronage that takes place in our county offices. The misguided PD feels this patronage is one of the reasons our county is failing and that their version of reform will rid us of these questionable hiring tactics.

I would say objective and unbiased reporting would be the first place to start. It strikes me as ironic that all of a sudden the PD has an issue with this patronage in our county offices. They act as if this hiring practice just started last week. Much of the patronage they write about has been going on for many, many years. In fact, the PD has been party to it and should shoulder the blame for allowing it to happen.

Again, I agree with Roldo's statement of...

"This has been a part of the problem of poor local government here for years. Protection has taken place within the news media with the PD in the lead."

He could not be more on point! For those that have lived in Cuyahoga County for at least the last 15-20 years - when is the last time you remember reading the PD complain about any patronage in our county offices? How often have you read the PD heap praise on many of the offices & issues you hear them complain about now?

After enjoying a free pass from the PD, local Democrats that did not support their push for reform - were "outed," and the local Republicans that agree with them are now, all of a sudden, the good guys.

It sounds as the PD is crying over spilled milk from the cup they were holding!

More from Messiah Barry

Hambo, from Politically Incorrect Gazette, hammers a home run with yesterdays Hambo's Hammer column....

From PIG --

Thus Sayeth Messiah Barry
This week, Messiah Barry wrote some new chapters for his Marxist Gospel.


The first new chapter is one should delight his ‘daddy’, Karl Marx, since it is a frontal assault on capitalism. He ‘revealed’ this new wisdom, after some Elephant Clan hacks - including Juan "Do you want salsa with that citizenship, Chico" McCain - started listening to we the people. Wanting no part of this ‘develop our own energy supplies, damn it’ demand from we the people, Messiah Barry scuttled the time tested, reality based, law of supply and demand. The revealed wisdom of Messiah Barry is that increasing the supply of oil - of all energy - will have no effect whatsoever on the price. I’ve heard of the ‘new math’ but this ‘Barrynomics’ is a new kid on the block that dares to defy objective reality.

Going for the Green

Despite giving lip service to publically financed Oval Office campaigns, Messiah Barry has, once again, stuck his finger in the air and tested those fickle political winds. First Messiah Barry looked at the pile of money available from the Nanny State funding pool. It was tempting, until Messiah Barry was distracted by the Jupiter size mountain of dead presidents available on the other side of the street, the side occupied by George Soros and his merry band of Marxists. That’s when Messiah Barry hoped he could keep fooling the Obamatons when he changed his mind about public financing for his bid to turn the White House into the Kremlin.

Race Card

Finally, Messiah Barry got in touch with his inner ‘brother’ when he launched a preemptive strike against the pachyderm punks in general and whitey in particular. Here are some hot off the parchment excerpts from this new Messiah Barry scripture:

"It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy. We know what kind of campaign they're going to run. They're going to try to make you afraid.

"They're going to try to make you afraid of me. He's young and inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's black?"

"We know the strategy because they've already shown their cards. Ultimately I think the American people recognize that old stuff hasn't moved us forward. That old stuff just divides us."

Thus sayeth Messiah Barry, if you question his experience, you’re a racist. If you challenge his platform as Marxist, you’re a racist. The only thing you’re allowed to say, no matter what this steaming pile of shit says, is "AMEN".

Law Enforcement Officer of the Year under attack AGAIN!

The korrectnik's and illegal border jumpers are protesting against Law Enforcement Officer of the Year - Maricpopa County (AZ) Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Sheriff Joe, a constant thorn in the side for Phoenix Mayor Phil "Pinhead" Gordon and AZ Governor Napolitano, is accustomed to these balless and baseless attacks.

Sheriff Joe is an icon, is the consumate law dog, and should be cloned if ever possible!

From ALIPAC --

One of the complaints I hear about Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is that he “works the media”.

You’re damn right he does, and it’s a good thing, too. His pro-illegal immigration opponents certainly work the media, and if Arpaio didn’t deploy some countermeasures he would be out of a job. Or if these guys have their way, crippled and unable to do his job effectively:

Critics of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio staged a raucous show Thursday in hopes of pressuring the Board of Supervisors to monitor more closely his enforcement of immigration laws and the amount of public money spent on lawsuits that involve his office,

…yeah, lawsuits that these protesters or their activist friends probably filed themselves…

The protesters, hundreds strong, were unsuccessful in holding the five elected officials to any promises. The Supervisors unanimously approved a $2.4 billion budget, up slightly from this year, with cuts in nearly all departments and programs, and about 428 eliminated vacant positions and layoffs.

Tree Ninjas vs. Pee Protesters at UC Beserkeley

This takes tree hugging to the extreme!

UC Beserkeley has hired "Tree Ninjas" to remove tree hugging korrectnik's from a grove of trees they are trying to remove. This has been going on for over a year, the area occupies a site on campus property where there are plans to build an athletic center.

From Daily Cal --

As the battle over UC Berkeley's oak grove near Memorial Stadium continues to unfold, a female tree-sitter has been extracted from the trees after biting an arborist.

According to Dan Mogulof, UC Berkeley's executive director of public affairs, the woman was on a support line that two arborists were attempting to remove. The woman refused to get off the line after being asked to by the arborists and proceeded to bite one of the arborists in the arm, leading to her extraction from the grove. The arborist received medical attention following the incident.

Tree-sitters have used bottles of excrement as ammunition against the officers and arborists who are attempting to take down their supplies, amidst yelling from onlookers and other protesters.

"These are people who use their own urine as weapons against people who are just trying to keep a college campus safe," Mogulof said.

Supporters of the tree-sit who were standing in the street expressed discontent about the way officers are going about the situation, calling their actions "aggressive" and yelling expletives at them. More...

Here is video of the incident.

One of the tree-sitting, pee-throwing twits has complained that police have shown no regard for their lives, have attacked people and that the UC administration has lost their minds!?!

The leader of these deciduous dipweeds, Zachary RunningWolf, has stated he is collecting money so he can get a resupply of the tree-sitters from some of the 100 or so onlookers. Police have been forced to cordon off the area due to these onlookers harassing and stopping passing traffic.

This situation has gotten way out of hand. University officials have dealt with these korrectnik morons long enough. After clearing the crowd, using tear gas if necessary, I would give the tree sitters a 1/2 hour warning - either leave the trees voluntarily or you will be forcefully brought down.

After 15 minutes - water cannons would be brought into position. At 30 minutes - the water cannons would be opened. Any stragglers left hanging would be pelted with rock salt from a pellet gun, if that did not work the trees would be dropped with protesters swinging from the branches.

Teacher "brands" student with Cross

I am shocked this teacher has not been arrested for child abuse --

From WND--

A public school board in Ohio voted unanimously today to proceed with firing an eighth-grade teacher for allegedly teaching his Christian beliefs in science classes and "branding" students with crosses.

Responding to an investigation, the Mount Vernon School District board voted 5-0 to consider termination of John Freshwater's contract at its next meeting, July 7.

The report presented to the board today charged Freshwater used a high-frequency generator – a Tesla coil – to make a cross on the arms of students, taught the theory of intelligent design and refused to remove all religious articles from his classroom.

Freshwater and the school board have been sued by the parents of a student who says the teacher violated their son's civil rights by branding him on the arm with a cross. The mark lasted four weeks, the parents claim.

But a spokesman for Freshwater, Dave Daubenmire, downplayed the parents' accusations and called the investigation one-sided, with "old trumped-up charges brought back to the table." More...

Where the hell are the police in this matter? This is child abuse! How in the hell could an educator consider branding a student educational?!?!? Many districts call police if students even get in a fight because of the sissified policy of "no-tolerance."

The teacher and the district could be sure of one thing.... if this were my child the teacher would have no teeth, an imprint of a fist on his jaw and a Cross branded on his forehead! Freshwater's spokesman saying - the investigation is one-sided, with "old trumped-up charges brought back to the table," would earn him at least a shock from a trumped up Taser charge!

For me this case is not about religion - but about the fact a teacher should NOT be placing his hands on a student unless he is lighting their butt with a paddle for misbehaving.

For any holy roller's that feel like commenting - don't give the crap religion should be in schools and the rest of your arguments. They do not work with me - my son goes to a Catholic school.

I could hear some of you guys now - King - if you do that, you will go to jail!

You're DAMN right I would!

A letter to America from Barack Obama

PIGster Prime came across this letter to America from Barack...

My fellow Americans:

As your future President I want to thank my supporters, for your mindless support of me, despite my complete lack of any legislative achievement, my pastor's relations with Louis Farrakhan and Libyan dictator Moamar Quadafi, or my blatantly leftist voting record while I present myself as some sort of bi-partisan agent of change.

I also like how my supporters claim my youthful drug use and criminal behavior somehow qualifies me for the Presidency after 8 years of claiming Bush's youthful drinking disqualifies him. Your hypocrisy is a beacon of hope shining over a sea of political posing.

I would also like to thank the Kennedy's for coming out in support of me. There's a lot of glamour behind the Kennedy name, even though JFK started the Vietnam War, his brother Robert illegally wiretapped Martin Luther King, Jr. and Teddy killed a female employee with whom he was having an extra marital affair and who was pregnant with his child. And I'm not going anywhere near the cousins, both literally and figuratively.

And I'd like to thank Oprah Winfrey for her support. Her love of meaningless empty platitudes will be the force that propels me to the White House.Americans should vote for me, not because of my lack of experience or achievement, but because I make people feel good. Voting for me causes some white folk to feel relieved of their imagined, racist guilt.

I say things that sound meaningful, but don't really mean anything because Americans are tired of things having meaning. If things have meaning, then that means you have to think about them.Americans are tired of thinking. It's time to shut down the brain, and open up the heart. So when you go to vote, remember, don't think, just do. And do it for me.

Thank You.

Barack Hussein Obama, Jr.

Cuyahoga County "Bored of Elections" picks $13.4 million scanning system

From the PD --
The Cuyahoga County Board of Elections picked a new voting system Friday, but it will be up to the county commissioners to approve the deal.

After meeting for six hours, most of that time behind closed doors, the four-member board selected Election Systems & Software's $13.4 million ballot-scanning system. That system was chosen over another scanning system offered by Hart InterCivic for $9.7 million.

The board voted 3-1, with Republican Chairman Jeff Hastings casting the dissenting vote because of the cost. He said he had confidence in the other system.

At one point, the board deadlocked 2-2. Then the board reconvened behind closed doors and Republican Rob Frost changed his vote and sided with Democrats Sandy McNair and Inajo Davis Chappell. More...

I have followed the fleecing of Cuyahoga County residents with the voting machine fiasco very closely - this comes as no suprise! The meeting was nothing more than the usual Cuyahoga County Dog & Pony Show. The decision to use ES&S as the supplier was dictated long ago by SOS Brunner.

The 'nadless Republicans, Frost & Hastings, on the Cuyahoga Co. Board of Erections have continually refused to resist Fuhrer Brunnehilda's strong arming of Cuyahoga County.

For the record - for the primary the BOE & Cuyahoga County Commissioners leased optical scan equipment from ES&S with a no-bid contract. This no-bid contract was awarded claiming ES&S was the sole provider of this equipment. At the time, I challenged the commissioners & the BOE's decision that ES&S was the sole provider of this equipment. Premier (Diebold) and Hart InterCivic offerd the same equipment and were not even considered at this time.

Per the ORC, a request was sent to Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason's office requesting a special prosecutor be appointed to review the awarding of this contract - which he obviously refused. To date nothing has changed. Premier (Diebold) and Hart InterCivic have not had any equipment certified, recertified or decertified since that time.

SO.... if Premier (Diebold) & Hart InterCivic were refused in the bidding process for the primary election - why would they be allowed to bid or even be considered for this contract?

Bedford schools Superintendent Martha Motsco gets Jennings Foundation Ohio award

I am shaking my head in disbelief!

From the PD --
Bedford schools Superintendent Martha "Marty" Motsco has been named the 2008 winner of the Superin tendent's Out standing Per formance Award in Ohio by the Cleveland-based Martha Holden Jennings Foundation. Under her leadership the past 11 years, the school system has made significant improvement in academic achievement, especially in reading and math. She will receive a $20,000 award to be used for a project of her choosing in Bedford.

Click here to see our test scores over the past several years. For years our district has been at the bottom of the "Continuous Improvement" rating.

Would you say a significant improvement in academic achievement has been made?

Obama will follow the "Pooh Doctrine" for National Security

For all you O'Dumbocrats - if you did not think the elephant-eared twit (Thanks Hambo) lived in a fantasy land, here is your proof!

The front runner to be O'Dipweed's National Security adviser, Richard Danzig, believes thinking like Winnie the Pooh is the answer for our national security...

From WND --

Winnie the Pooh, Luke Skywalker and violent soccer buffs could help the U.S. make national security decisions if Obama becomes president, the senator's key adviser told a foreign policy conference in Washington.

"Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security," said Richard Danzig, potential national security adviser for an Obama presidency and Bill Clinton's former Navy secretary.

The London Telegraph reports Danzig, speaking at a conference last week hosted by the
Center for New American Security, found a paragraph from a Winnie the Pooh book offers the simple lesson for U.S. foreign policy that if something causes you too much pain, you should try something else...

Girlieman of the Week - Messiah Barry O'Dumbo

From Politically Incorrect Gazette--

Girlieman of the Week
Date Awarded: June 20, 2008

Girlieman: Messiah Barry O’Dumbo
Girlie Antics: Craven Coward

The cornerstone of Messiah Barry’s candidacy is his need to prove that you can fool enough of the people enough of the time. His most fervent "hope" is that his mind-numbed Obamatons won’t "change" their perspective by trading in their rose-colored glasses for some reality goggles.

Messiah Barry’s entire candidacy is a sham and a quest to promote ‘style’ over ‘substance’. It’s working, most of the time, as long as Messiah Barry is spouting somebody else’s inspiring words from a carefully rehearsed script. The problem arises, when Messiah Barry is allowed to spout his own drivel, without a script or a rehearsal. An off-the-cuff Messiah Barry is a non-stop gaff machine. That’s why he went gutless and girlie, after Juan "Do you want salsa with that citizenship, Chico" McCain challenged Barry to 10 "just me, you and American citizens" town hall debates. Answering unscreened questions from REAL citizens? It’s Messiah Barry’s worst nightmare. He fled the idea like it’s tainted with Ebola.

Messiah Barry is a fraud, a gutless fraud, who wants to hide the fact that he’s utterly and completely unsuited for that big chair behind the desk in the Oval Office. That’s why he’s doing everything in his power to restrict the scope of the debate on his qualifications. While his campaign seeks to muzzle the unscripted Messiah Barry, other Obamatons are making pre-emptive strikes via a "Stop the Smears" Jihad. The list of items that YOU can’t say, because Messiah Barry can’t handle it, grows longer each day.

For fleeing a series of open, unscripted, town hall meetings with those rank and file Americans...for whining every time a rational adult points out how utterly unqualified Messiah Barry is for the job he seeks...for caterwauling when cautious chad punchers, quite rightly, question the company that Messiah Barry has been keeping...for cringing behind his empty, well rehearsed, rhetoric...for his inability to be a MAN in any sense of that word, Messiah Barry O’Dumbo is the repeat winner of the Politically Incorrect Gazette’s Girlieman of the Week.

Parting shot: We think Juan McCain needs to make this his new campaign slogan. "If the Oval Office chair don’t fit, reject the elephant-eared twit."

Steaming Load Award -- Intolerable foot-dragging Demoncrats

From Politically Incorrect Gazette --

Steaming Load #1: Intolerable Demoncrat foot-dragging on energy independence.

Enough is enough, damn it. For at least 3 decades, the Demoncrats have been allowing the rabid tree huggers to dictate our energy policy. As a direct result, we’ve put most of our proven oil reserves off limits. Making matters worse, the Demoncrat horde, and their willing stooges across the aisle, fund pie-in-the-sky, unproven ‘alternatives’ while banning the real alternative, the real ‘green’ power generating source, nuclear power plants.

Now, with a presidential election reaching critical mass, those dastardly pachyderm punks - not all of them, but a significant majority - are changing the rules. They’re stirring up ‘we the people’ with bills and petitions that demand opening our reserves to production. In addition to 6 bills mired in the Demoncrat controlled congress, the Elephant Clan is getting long overdue support from Oval Office.

Did the Demoncrats heed President Bush’s call to lift the ban on offshore drilling? Sort of, but they’re not jumping on board:

San Fran Nan whines that "We can’t drill our way to energy independence" [We can’t talk our way to it, either, with bull crap about solar and wind energy.]

Mexifornia’s Senatorial Turd, Dianne Feinstein whines about oil spills sullying Mexifornia beaches. [Would you rather have tankers bringing in foreign oil, sullying America’s coasts and harbors, or do we all move into a cave?]

Mexifornia’s action hero governor, a Demoncrat - at heart - and Elephant Clan - on paper - echoes his homegirl, Feinstein. He spews bull crap about oil drilling endangering the state’s coast which is an "international treasure". [We’re not taking any energy policy advice from Rhino whose wife keeps his nads locked in a drawer.]

Messiah Barry, and his eager Capitol Hill Marxists, wants to tax the oil companies out of business. [This takes asinine to record-shattering heights.]

A top Demoncrat, Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), member of the House Appropriations Committee, unleashed a gem this week. He wants to nationalize the oil refineries and put job for life bureaucrats in charge of this essential link in the energy chain. [This is so off the cliff stupid that it takes our breath away, but it’s only the beginning. Given his way, Maurice would nationalize the oil companies, too.]

President Reagan said it all when he noted that "government isn’t the solution to the problem.. Government is the problem". Truer words, PIGsters, truer words. We think it’s time to do Ronald Reagan proud and boot these capitalism-hating asshats out of the way and free up our domestic energy resources. The path to energy independence begins with one simple step, flushing these Elected Tormentor butt bullets.

Cuyahoga Democrat Machine Attempts Appearance of Diversity
in Good Old Boy Network with Selection of County Recorder Candidate

CLEVELAND, OHIO – Cathy Luks, candidate for Cuyahoga County Recorder since January and the only aspirant in the race for the past five weeks, apparently will have an opponent in the general election. Yesterday evening, the county’s Democrat machine voted to put Lillian Greene’s name on the fall ballot to replace that of former County Recorder Patrick O’Malley, who resigned in disgrace last month.

Mike Dovilla, campaign strategist for Mayor Luks, commented on the selection. “Lillian Greene may be an adequate judge, but she has no experience that qualifies her to lead a countywide executive office. This appointment is an obvious political favor to a sitting judge that is consistent with the corrupt, single-party machine that has been running Cuyahoga County for the past two decades.”

In reacting to her imminent selection earlier this week, Greene commented to a local reporter that, “[t]he office needs somebody to restore credibility.” Given the ethical lapses in O’Malley’s personal and political life, a recurring theme among Ohio Democrats this year, Greene is correct. But the appointment of yet another member of the Democrat machine is not the antidote to the leadership failures of Cuyahoga’s countywide elected officials.

“The attempt to plaster over the Democrats’ good old boy network with this selection smacks of political calculation and rank pandering,” stated Dovilla. “The fact that Judge Greene did not receive her own party’s endorsement in her March primary race for Probate Court against a ‘name game’ candidate demonstrates that the Democrat machine cares only about winning elections and perpetuating its rampant patronage system, not representing the people of this county or addressing its many challenges. If Greene wasn’t good enough then to be endorsed for an office in which she actually had the experience to serve, why is she now an acceptable candidate for a countywide office in which she has no relevant background?”

For more information on Cathy Luks’ campaign to end corruption and bring efficient, effective, ethical leadership to the office of Cuyahoga County Recorder, please contact Mike Dovilla at (216) 280-8720.
