Clown Coalman also said, "We progressives here in Columbus want another 100,000 like minded individuals sh^tting in the streets, sh^tting in bank lobbies, and shitting in church aisles. The DNC convention here promises us a tsunami of human excrement. And we will not wait for it!"

Coalman is a joke.

Ban Columbus from any political convention.

The Dems already lost 2016, and the 2014 mid-term.

Starve the parasite Coleman, and run him out of town on a rail.

why would we want terrorists visit columbus?

the political conventions are for terrorists to indoctrinate sheep to follow them.

Cleveland has Johnny Football and King Lebron.

They need Boehner crying on stage like a hole in the head, and Coleman threatening the DNC is a joke. Coleman is a joke.

Columbus shoots itself in the foot every day the loser mayor is in office.

This is a bullying threat in a most juvenile way. Mike Coleman is a mayor NOT a governor, and he doesn't speak for Democrats in general, or the voters of Ohio or even Ohio itself. Remember in 2004 the bogus "Terror Alert" was at RED ALERT (the MAX level) and Dick Head Cheney sneered that if America voted Democrat (and for Senator John Kerry) in November that there would be another major terror attack - on another skyscraper like perhaps the Sears Tower in Chicago? Yes, this was a threat! Cheney is an arrogant rotten snot ball and Coleman is talking like one too. There's quite a number of unique events an sights around here. I've witnessed the AmeriFlora sensation (now part of the Franklin Park Conservatory), the Son Of Heaven exhibit and when U2 and the Rolling Stones first played in Columbus. Most of these milestones occurred during the administration of Greg Lushutka. He didn't pop off the chops about it or strut his butt like a peacock. He smiled for TV and cut the ribbon when necessary. The Biblical Book of Proverbs state that even a fool who keeps quiet is considered to be wise. We don't need a political party convention. It would snarl traffic and disrupt routine activity. As for Coleman badgering the DNC, he doesn't know a good thing in Columbus nor does he see the bigtime problems like the horrible pothole dilemma and the purposes of the Vets Memorial. Veterans affairs, UN + India + record trading + new age festivals, concerts, and the Arnie Expo, where is all that going to be held now?- if Schwarzenegger gets wind of this he might dunk Coleman in a basketball hoop a la "The Terminator". This shyte is totally reckless and dumb.

A few weeks ago I received a survey from the DNC asking me to vote for a city from a list of 8 or 10 in which to hold the 2016 convention. I immediately chose Columbus. A fews years back when I lived in Ohio (when it was a top rated state, not like now when it has fallen to 3rd world status) Columbus was considered to be a perfect testing ground for determining the habits and likes of the average American. New products, restaurant chains and technologies were introduced to Columbus first to see how it took to these items before distributing them nationwide. If it did not succeed in Columbus, it was a no go. I still think the city retains those true American ideals (this website is an aberration and not representative of the city and Ohio as a whole) and is the perfect site for the convention. I do not know how holding two political conventions in one state will work out but the Republicans made a poor choice in Cleveland and think (and hope) they will regret it.

Ohio is among the ten worst states to live in and aming the ten most unhealthy states to live in. Plus we have a crooked legal system.

And why is that?

Cleveland is going downhill and has been for many years under Democrat leadership. The RNC is coming to town and will help our terrible economic situation. The people here are not smart enough to get rid of the Democrats in spite of the largest county corruption scandal in our history just a few years back. That investigation sent over a dozen Democrats to prison where they rightfully belong, and the dopes here still vote for Democrats.

Just to give you an idea of how our government in Cleveland works:

Mayor hires former councilwoman convicted for accepting bribes
POSTED 6:04 PM, JULY 24, 2014, BY PEGGY SINKOVICH, UPDATED AT 06:08PM, JULY 24, 2014

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Former Councilwoman Sabra Pierce Scott resigned in 2009 for personal reasons, and two years later she pleaded guilty to accepting a bribe from a contractor.

She is now back working for the city, hired as the Deputy Program Manager for the Public Utilities Department.

Mayor Frank Jackson says he hired her not just because he believes she deserves a second chance but because he she was the best person for the job.

“Second chance, yes, but more than that because you can’t give a second chance to somebody who isn’t qualified to do the job,” Jackson said.“She is extremely qualified.”

The mayor said Scott previously managed a financial institution and spent years working in the community.

Jackson hired her in June, and she is now earning $55,000 a year.

Many in the community, including city Councilman Zack Reed, say they don’t have a problem with Scott being hired.
