    In The World: Saudi Arabia

    Ah, just another case of one or two rouge Saudi agents who took it too far and in no way represent the Saudi government. Sometimes they get confused by the peaceful messages of Wahhabism, but oh well, shit happens, god is great, women get to drive now, and Iran is the real enemy so let's talk about them some more instead. Open and shut case - next!

    Ant Man and Wasp was absolutely hilarious. It may be my favorite post 2007 Marvel film Punisher War Zone still my number 1
  3. I believe it went something like this... mumble, mumble, mumble, Dirt Bikes, mumble, mumble, Al Qaeda in Public Square, mumble, mumble, mumble, Cleveland is Booming, mumble, mumble, mumble, Cleveland is Failing, mumble, mumble, mumble, Don't Mention My Nephew... Something to that effect.
  4. Well... good luck to them then. I have a lot of wonderful memories at Richmond Mall and would hate to see it go the way of the Euclid's or Randall's.

    Cleveland: Crime & Safety Discussion

    Gentrification is probably the reason why NYC and LA have seen such massive drops in crime the last 15 years; the poor just can't afford the rent or property taxes. But in all honesty Cleveland hasn't had any significant gentrification, and the investment its seen is limited to parts of a handful of neighborhoods. As such its crime numbers are pretty consistent with little blips or troughs here and there.

    I thought iGeneration was catching on?

    Cleveland: Crime & Safety Discussion

    There really is no one reason why crime is up. There are a lot of damaged and horrible people out there with ample opportunity to destroy. It's just a fact of life, and American society is both unwilling and unable to come to a consensus on making those numbers manageable and comparable to Western European rates.
  8. Definitely good seeing all that development in Pittsburgh. It's one hell of an underrated city.
  9. I hope you guys have the same passion for chastising, if not boycotting, the Browns, who are closely associated with Jim Brown, who has been abusing women for decades. Hell, he even tried to murder at least one. He's done a hell of a lot worse things than the ex-owner of Town Hall, yet Cleveland - and the complicit Browns organization and fanbase - still grovel at his feet.
  10. And when were Gilbert's most recent tweets on that space again? 2013? 2014? Call me cynical

    Right wingers hate public education

    In all fairness, one could argue that liberals are somewhat responsible for decimating the quality of inner city public schooling and instruction over the last 50-plus years. The issue is more nuanced than right or left wingers hate public ed.

    Police Use of Force

    There is a photo on Twitter floating around with the two being social. Also, the US has as much in common with Third World countries as it does with Western European. The amount of lawlessness, anti-social behaviors, and enabling of such conduct is prevalent all over US cities, all of which is a hell of a lot more common in "developing" countries than the Netherlands. I think comparisons are legitimate.

    Elon Musk

    The guy is definitely having a meltdown. Which sucks because the world needs people like him.
