So, perhaps you wonder what happened to this website. Well, life happened. Justin got busy, and I got busy. In the midst of the busy-ness, Justin became the editor of Streetvibes. So I write stuff for him to put in Streetvibes. I like the idea of that. I don’t post here. I publish there. So, to find out what we’re saying, go get a Streetvibes, or something.
Give money more than prayer to the victims of Sandy Hook
There are lots of stories online today about all the prayers being given about the Sandy Hook school tragedy. Meanwhile, organizations like Newtown Youth and Family Services will be providing counseling all weekend to those directly affected. Consider making a donation to them.
21c Hotel Celebration of Discrimination
Today the ribbon was cut to open a 21c Boutique Hotel. 3cdc displaced 208 people from their homes in order for 21c to open this Boutique Hotel. The primary cause of homelessness is a lack of affordable housing. 3cdc destroyed about 223 affordable apartments in the Central Business District. The Metropole Tenant Association fought 3cdc for two and a half years, eventually filling a federal lawsuit. Tenants secured the first settlement in favor of displaced Tenants ever in Cincinnati history.
Jill Stein in Cincinnati, 11-2-12
JILL STEIN, GREEN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE MAKES WHISTLE STOP IN CINCY
“DON’T BE FOOLED TWICE” SAYS STEIN
by Dan La Botz
“The politics of fear says we can’t stand up for what we need,” Jill Stein told supporters in Cincinnati. She was referring to voters’ fears of supporting third party candidates like herself, who stand to the left of the Democratic Party, because then the Republicans might win. “
Electoral Democracy: The Well Kept Secret
By Dan La Botz*
The television commentators on the major channels and on cable all refer to the “two presidential candidates,” incumbent Democrat Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney. By and large so do the radio stations, the newspapers, and most of the websites and blogs.
Fountain of Youth
This music video talks about the economic and social conditions that were behind the 1967 Cincinnati riots, the 2001 Cincinnati riots, and police abuse in the present.
So, it’s been awhile, Beacon. Grad school… Work… Family… Helping Justin by writing for Streetvibes when I can. But I haven’t forgotten about you. Is there a relaunch planned soon?
Injured black baby - throw the mother in jail. Dead white baby - let the mother walk free!
Baby, I just know some of you out there are going to try and explain this one away. But you can’t, honey. Not really. That’s because living in different counties doesn’t mean living under different laws. A Westwood black mother is going to jail because her toddler fell from a one story window and didn’t die. She was negligent, or something. That’s what they say, anyhow. But you just know I can’t forget Brenda Nesselroad-Slaby, who cooked her baby to death by leaving it in a hot car and got off scott free.
Feeding the homeless banned in major cities all over America
This article describes how many cities are creating bans that prevent people from feeding hungry people that are experiencing homelessness. Sadly here in Cincinnati Food Not Bombs has been harassed for sharing healthy food with those that are hungry.
Greg Landsman to run for City Council
Greg Landsman is running for City Council. You know, I started really paying attention to City Politics about ten or twelve years ago. Here is what drives me crazy by now. All these connected city council candidates sound the same. Landsman’s talking points currently include things like having a “smarter, more efficient government,” and to prioritize “local jobs.” Does anyone want a less efficient government and non-local jobs?
Local kids watched their Dad get tasered
There’s been another local death after police tasered a man in order to break up a fight after a baseball game. It’s troubling that Cincinnati Police still refer to tasers as “non-lethal” weapons. The city’s taser policy needs to be reviewed and revised.
Released names of juveniles? Honey, please.
Honey, is it common practice for the Enquirer to release the names of kids involved in a shoplifting case? Yes, baby, I know there was a police chase, but still. I thought kids were supposed to be protected from this kind of exposure. Does it matter the teenage girls have black sounding names from black neighborhoods? Check out the Enquirer’s item here. Talk about a conservative bias, there ain’t nothing more conservative than treating black kids different from white ones.
The World Choir Games are rocking Cincinnati!
It is great to have so many visitors from around the world coming to our city to celebrate music at the World Choir Games. I’ve enjoyed hearing some excellent choirs from all over the world this week-some were just on the sidewalk impromptu singing for fun.
The Tyler Davidson Fountain on Fountain Square is a water fountain
One would think that 3CDC would have put in a water fountain when they spent $48 million renovating Fountain Square. They didn’t but they say you can drink from the city’s iconic fountain known as the Genius of Water. Of course there aren’t any signs letting people know it’s safe to drink from.
Washington Park & 3CDC-the local Vampire Squid
Today a newly renovated Washington Park reopened to a large crowd. Among the crowd were dozens of people holding signs protesting the missing pool, basket ball courts and old growth trees which were removed despite the community telling 3CDC those amenities were important to them and should be kept.
Rally in Washington Park tomorrow
Tomorrow, Friday, July 6th the People’s Panel, a part of the Platform for Equality and Justice will hold a rally and press conference at 10:30am in Washington Park, directly following the end of the Washington Park Ribbon Cutting.
Celebrating Woody Guthrie at 100
Woody Guthrie was born July 14th, 1912 and became one of the nation’s greatest songwriters. As this interview shows, Guthrie boldly spoke out for labor and civil rights and against fascism during the McCarthy era.
The video Western & Southern doesn’t want you to see is back!
The corporate bullies at Western & Southern had this video parody taken down claiming it was a “copyright infringement”. They’ve had it taken down repeatedly, but it is back up so watch it and take action now.
Reagan’s health care mandate & why the GOP won’t repeal the Affordable Care Act
The Republican health care plan which is now being called “Obamacare” won’t be repealed by the GOP because the health insurance industry-which owns both parties-wants it. And it’s worth noting that President Reagan had a health care mandate.
CENSORSHIP? Western & Southern has video parody taken down from youtube!
The growing campaign to stop Western & Southern’s lawsuits against the Anna Louis Inn came up with a clever video parody which has now been taken down. Now when you click on the video parody it says it was taken down because of copyright infringment by Canipre Inc. The video was clearly a parody and should be protected under fair use laws. The video had nearly 1,000 views in under a week and was becoming popular via social media.
A special message from Western & Southern!
The Atrium bites the dust, property tax millage increases a little
I’m glad to see council scrapped the Atrium project because it was something we didn’t need and can’t afford. Council agreed to a small increase in property tax millage after the city solicitor threatened to sue council if they didn’t approve enough property taxes to cover debts the city already owes.
Michigan’s Enbridge Oil Spill
I ran into my friend Steve Zieverink last night at the Greek Festival—an annual reunion, of sorts, of those of us who hail from Finneytown—and he told me about work he’s been doing to document alleged and ongoing cover-ups regarding the Enbridge Oil Spill in Michigan. I know next to nothing about this situation, but just watched this video. It’s strange how Enbridge appears to have hired someone to follow an activist around full time!
City Council: No property tax hike
It looks like Vice Mayor Qualls couldn’t find enough votes on council to raise property taxes. According to John Cranley they’ve already raised our taxes with the streetcar. Qualls said, “We’ll be very surgical in the cuts that need to be made.” Adding, “But no one should fool themselves, it will be very painful.” The Atrium and streetcar won’t be cut.
The Cincinnati Public Goes Green: Will it Lead a Charge Toward Renewable Energy?
Written by Yvonne Fischer
Where would you go to find cutting edge options for sustainable living and renewable energy? San Francisco and California’s Bay Area perhaps? New York, with its huge population and massive urban needs? Maybe you should check out, Cincinnati, Ohio.Over the past few months, Ohio Citizen Action and Greenpeace have led a campaign that culminated in April with the city rejecting Duke Energy and becoming the first city in Ohio, and the first of its size in the nation to run on 100% clean energy. At long last, a large US city has taken a step to realize a dream which has long been touted by researchers and professors in public administration graduate programs across the country, offering a “green” energy option to their citizens.
City Hall: To tax, or not to tax?
Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls and City Manager Milton Dohoney want to raise property taxes, but many oppose it. Critics argue that if the city weren’t spending money on pet projects and the wrong priorities there wouldn’t be any need to raise them.
More conservative media bias: reporters interrupting POTUS!
I’ve said it once, honey, and I’ll say it again. There ain’t no liberal media bias. There is a conservative bias. When have you ever seen “liberal media reporters” disrespect the President by interrupting him and arguing with him? You haven’t. That’s because they don’t. There isn’t a liberal media bias. There is a conservative media bias. And if you haven’t seen this story, you need to see it, babe!
UndOcuppy Ohio “Coming Out of the Shadows”
Obama reacts to occupation of his campaign offices with change to immigration policy
Since Wednesday undocumented activists have staged sit-ins at Obama for America offices in Oakland, Los Angeles, Cincinnati and Detroit. Obama has voiced support for the DREAM Act, but the activists urged him to issue an executive order stopping the deportations. Now Obama is issuing an executive order stopping the deportations of young undocumented immigrants that don’t have a criminal record or pose a security threat and they will be able to apply for citizenship.
