Parma is the most corrupt community in Ohio, even more than Steubenville.
Just google: Bill Mason Cuyahoga
I'm talking about what it looks like, and every time I've been there it looked nice and clean and well-kkept to me. It gets a bad rap because it's working class and landlocked, like Whitehall is around here. But if you've spent any time in Whitehall, it's reasonably clean and well-kept. There are actually some very expensive estate homes along Fairway Blvd.

Working people have to live somewhere too.

I would say I've had a couple myself. I have even witnessed a miracle and I'm like the last person who would believe it if anybody else told me. But I saw it ... in fact, it was a priest who brought it to my attention and I will be eternally grateful to have been a witness.
I wish we can talk more about this off topix...I have two stories that scared the crap out of me.

That's certainly our interpretation now, but slavery was once a very justifiable institution. There were slaves in biblical times and there were slaves 150 years ago. The issue of slavery divided people in terms of religion. Southern Baptists found the idea of slavery to be moral.
There are passages in the bible that condone slavery. There are passages in the bible that condone stoning (Leviticus). These are practices that we now find immoral, even barbaric. The culture THEN did not feel this way. Especially for such a sin as blasphemy...could you imagine if that were the case nowadays? Even religious leaders argue the case that many things that were taught in the bible cannot be applied now because of the change in time and culture.
Funny that you should bring up a man hitting a woman. The bible isn't exactly the best moral reference for the treatment of women, is it? Some contradictions in there. And yet again - within your religion - there are those who disagree about the morality/immorality of how women should be treated and how they should behave. Catholics generally do not believe a woman should be allowed to speak in church or be a priest. Other Christian religions believe otherwise. As for abusing a spouse, there were laws (laws which are influenced by a society's moral code) that upheld a man's right to abuse his wife.
Personally, I would find this practice to be immoral. But if I were a man in the 1600s, I might find it perfectly fine. And not only would that be so, but the entire society might think it fine as well.
Gotta run, but I'll return to the discussion later.
Personal opinions and behaviors are not the arbiter of universal truth.
But, keep beatin' that dead horse, as the dude from Reynoldsburg likes to say.

Hamilton County, IN
(Carmel)
Arguably the best part of the Midwest and the most successful example of right-wing governance in this country.
We've discussed this before. Carmel, Fishers is nice but not really that much different than Delaware County, New Albany, etc. The county to the west of Indy is also developing nicely as well.

OTOH, Franklin County, Ohio beats Marion County, Indiana hands down.

lol...you really are close-minded and blinded to the truth. You do not and cannot define religion/spirituality for ALL people. You can TRY, but your definition only applies to you. It does not apply to everyone. You just don't get it at all and it's scary how blind you are to the truth.
Spirituality involves belief in spirit beings.
Atheism is a rejection of the spiritual world and, as a result, rejection of all religions.

Thick as a whale omelette you are.

I don't know if the charter can be changed to elect Commissioners by district.
You can have a charter to have an Executive and Council members by district, but 4 out of 5 times, Franklin will elect a Democrat Executive, who would automatically become the next contender for Governor.
City council is the minor league for moving into county and state government. Creating Columbus wards would result in the election of at least a few Republicans. But wards can be messy since it takes away the "we're all in it together" nature of council.

I don't like him, but George Forbes of the militant days, he is not.
Now, East Cleveland is a cesspool that should be put under military occupation.
The nicest part of the state, IMO, Hudson, but one of the most expensive.
I know...Frank has an Italian mom.
I like him...he's not in your face....he works behind the scenes, and now the Drug Mart will be opening ...finally .
Downtown Cleveland is jumping all the time!....the downside is the few who spoil it.

Only a stupid n##### doesn't recognize the NHL as a professional league...older than the NFL and NBA.

The rest of your post proves once again that you've never been here.

Actually, Columbus has quite a few restaurants that hold their own. Besides, what do you coloreds know about anything other than chicken and ribs. We have KFC's just like you people do.

Sports teams? I would rather give my money to Ohio State than to some Jewish football team owner. Nor do we want n@@@@rball here either. When was the last time an NHL player gang raped someone or raised pit bills?

Museums, orchestras? Overrated.

Hospitals. Wrong buddy. The Ohio State University Hospital is among the tops in the nation. Childrens Hospital is in the Top 10. Riverside and Grant (Ohio Health), I believe are in the Top 100.

Really? Murder has always been immoral? Then why does your bible say that a woman should be stoned to death? Is that not murder?
You're really having a difficult time following along here. So you're saying that since slavery has ALWAYS been immoral, that the founding fathers and everyone who lived back then were immoral, right?
I'm sorry that you can't follow along, but that's a YP not an MP. If you want to make assumptions of my own thoughts rather than the evidence I brought forth and using current situations to prove that some people still justify murder - well, I guess you're beyond help.
Capital punishment, as carried out by rulers [i.e., the state], is not murder.

Romans 13:3-5

For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer.

***

With regard to our founding fathers, that slavery was a practice of their era does not make it moral...anymore than child sacrifice being a practice of the Mayan era makes it moral.

In fact, the very man who penned the Declaration recognized this truth and sought, with others, to lay the groundwork for an end to the practice.

Did you laugh when Bobrovsky won the Vezina last Spring? How about when Nathan Horton signed?

Not to mention that lots of former players like Columbus and make it their home after retirement. Even Rick Nash still has his house here.

Nash found out last year what a joy living in Columbus is, with a friendly local sports media and a respect for celebrity privacy. Why do you think one reason he didn't go to Toronto was? Their media treats Leafs players the way Columbus treats OSU players after a loss to Michigan and an arrest.
If the Jackets outshine the Rangers this season, he may regret having asked for a trade.
