First, are you even interested in hearing about this continuing saga of Euclid? If you aren't I won't write further updates. A lot of my writings feed off of your interactions and feedback so you got to let me know.

I told Cindy R. I am so upset by the crap that is going on in Euclid, no backing from friends and political meet-ups I belong to, lack of response from the ACLU and Senator Sherrod Brown and the unwillingness of any newspaper to investigate what is happening that I am done with politics. I even told Cindy I am actually embarrassed to call myself an American. In fact I have been chatting online for over a year with a lady in the Philippines.. We talk about everything and our problems. She said her country is pro-American and her dreams are to visit America one day. I am so taken aback by Euclids rules on mandatory inspections, the hell they are causing my family because I had a nephew staying in my house for 3 months that I couldn't even tell my friend what is going on here in America. We are suppose to be a beacon of light of freedom and yet in a small city like Euclid they can push a person to the brink of financial collapse and dictate what you can do with your house. Where is the freedom in this?
So lets rattle through these.
What am I talking about no backing from friends? I receive plenty of support BUT no backing, to me there is a difference. Daily I receive emails or calls asking of updates and/or how am I doing, a few even called and wanted to know if I needed the bond money. A few even did things that I can't mention, you know who you are, thank you! I am greatly humbled by all of this. But support is not what's needed, backing is. Calls, letters, and emails in my support to Euclid. If you think this is all just about Carey you are wrong. This can and would benefit all of you.
As for the meet-up groups. I attended the Heritage Club last Monday. The theme of the meeting was if there is a candidate or an issue that is important in another county forget about that, lets go there, volunteer and get involved to get the person elected or the bill passed. If a person is out of work, lets spread the word amongst us so we can hire him in our circle. Even if someone's house needs painting, let go there and help him. Whatever the problem is lets be there for one another. I asked if I could close the meeting. I passed around the warrant I received and tried telling them what is going on. The small group of about nine took my email address and said yes we will email you for more info so we can send out a letter in support of you to Euclid. Guess how many contacted me? ONE! Ron, thank you! Jeff told me a lady wrote to him on another matter and said tell your friend good luck with Euclid. What a waste of time that meeting was.
Lets move on to Senator Sherrod Brown. Why would I write to him? Because he is introducing legislation that would give federal aid to communities with vacant and abandoned properties and homes because of major population and job loss. And ready for this part, LOCALLY EUCLID.... MIGHT BE THE ONLY CITY ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE FUNDS. You got that? Here I am doing all I can to keep my tenants, run a business which is basically what rentals are and Euclid is interfering to the point where I may lose the house or houses. How many more empty houses do they need? Maybe Senator Sherrod Brown should look into the policies of Euclid first.
And why the ACLU? I really cringe writing to them but they are suppose to be the champion of freedom, right? Mandatory yearly inside inspections are not only an invasion of ones privacy but where is the probably cause or warrant to do so? Oh I go a warrant alright but only after I said no to them coming inside.
Am I making sense why I am fed up? Understand why I am down? April 15th there is a HUGE protest going on all across America against taxation.. Well guess what? I started my protest last May and it has to do with more than just taxes. It has to do with invading my privacy, it has to do with the added fees and it has to do with what is a person suppose to do if they can't afford such demands? Where are my backers? Understand?

News meant for the headlines but made it to the back pages

News meant for the headlines but made it to the back pages.

Governor Palin rejects 30 percent of funds from the stimulus package, she will accept only money without strings attached.
Way to go Sarah!

Congressman Steven LaTourette upset over stimulus package.
He criticized the fact that members only had 90 minutes to review the 1,071 page bill even though a measure requires 48 hours to review a bill before a vote.
Thats how bad laws are passed and how socialism is quietly making major inroads into America. Most lawmakers aren't even sure what they signed.

Camera, seat-belt proposals blocked
In case you missed it. SENATE REPUBLICANS (not Democrats) blocked plans to allow speed cameras in construction zones and to give police the power to stop motorists for not buckling up.
Thank God some common sense can still be found. Cameras should NOT be allowed in America, on private property is one thing, for the government to have them is scary. And we were about to hand over even more power to the police by allowing them to pull you over for not wearing a seat belt. Since when is it a duty of the police to baby sit? Seat belts should be you right to wear or not to wear.

More communities say no to traffic cameras
Mayor of Canton is giving up plans to install 8 cameras same in Pickerington.
But guess what? Word has it Euclid wants to start installing cameras on Rt 2 and else where. Euclid just doesn't get what it means to be a free American do they?

Lincoln Electric is buying plant in China while reducing jobs in Cleveland.
I understand by going over seas you avoid higher wages and all the taxes and regulations here, BUT, don't the companies understand by sending out jobs who is going to be able to buy their product in the states if no one is working?

Remember on April first to send a tea bag to Washington DC. The address is: 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington DC - 20500. This is a major protest that is going on all across America. We are tired of taxes and the erosion of our freedom, (my note: mandatory inside inspections are one such violation of my rights - no one should have the right to enter my house without a probable cause). Please send the tea bag on April first we want the bags to arrive by April 15th for the tea parties that are being organized across the country.
Clevelands April 15Th protest is being held at Mall C from 4 to 6 PM. Those who like to carpool with me just show up in my drive on that date. Nows your chance to sound off and be a part of history.

And thats a wrap!

I am doing all I can to preserve freedom, what are you doing?

Friends save those books - PLEASE!

Hey Gang,

I need a show of hands. How many of you ever got lead poisoning? How many people have you heard of getting lead poisoning? What are the symptoms? Exactly, thats my point. I don't know of anyone except a friend of mine who had traces of lead in his body but that was because of a factory he worked at.
Please pay attention to how they have primed us for this latest scare. They have been screaming about lead in houses from paint. Then they got the lead out of gas. Then it was cosmetics, clothes, this thing that thing. And this evening I saw an article in the newspaper that they want to remove childrens books 1986 and prior because of lead. Immediately my antennae went up. Why, what did it remind me of?
First let me say we all know about the revisionist history that seems to be going on. We all know the liberal/socialist/communist attack on anything American or Godly they want out such as, but not limited to, the pledge of allegiance, prayer in school, holidays, and monuments.
So what did it remind me of? The year - 1933, the place - Germany, the event - book burning, the reason - a cleansing of anything anti-Germany. This is frightening. With all this revisionist history going on, globalism being preached, the push for a one world government and now them wanting to possibly get rid of old children's books is horrifying. Friends I am afraid this is only the first step. Once they gather and destroy children's books its off to the presses with censorship and only what the government wants you to read. Bibles could be next as a state sponsored church could appear. Where did this happen before? Once again Germany. History does repeat itself. Friend don't be duped. Keep those old books, none of us died or got sick from reading these books and neither will your children or grandchildren.

"Where they burn books, they will ultimately also burn people."
When was this said? Believe it or not in 1821 by a Jewish German poet named Heinrich Heine. Kind of prophetic, huh?

*I read the article in the Lake County News Herald, this was taken off a web news source: The Consumer Product Safety Commission has raised that possibility in urging the nation's libraries to take children's books printed before 1986 off their shelves while the federal agency investigates whether the ink contains unsafe levels of lead.

Did you read that, the key word is possibility, not fact, but a possibility and yet they are urging libraries to take them off the shelves? And just suppose the government says yes these books have lead you need to get rid of them. What happens if we don't get rid of them? This is scary stuff here. FRIENDS, DO NOT BE DUPED!!! Save those books.
We have history to look back on, those before us didn't. We have no reason to be fooled. Just do the research.

Euclid Council,
First I would like to apologize to Councilman Greg Van Ho.
Councilman Van Ho, my sincerest apologies for the profane language left on your answering machine Saturday, March 14Th..
If I may explain. I awoke to a letter from the City of Euclid. It was a warrant for my arrest for a housing violation. I immediately called Councilman Van Ho without thinking and spouted off. I think most would panic receiving such a letter though that is no excuse.

Euclid Council I hope with this letter that a proper conclusion will be reached in regards to an issue that has spiraled out of control. I also hope that Euclid will tell me what they are doing to secure my investment because as of now they are making it very difficult to run a business which is what rental property basically is and in doing so making hard to find tenants or prospective buyers.

The issue I allude to is a warrant that I received Saturday March 14th for a housing violation. I assume it is for the windows that need replacing. I erroneously believed I was in compliance. Back in the fall I explained that due to my financial situation the windows would be replaced when funds allowed. There was no further contact from Euclid until Saturday when I received the warrant. Since that time one window has been replaced and another ordered.

Instead of explaining any further lets get right to what the real problem is and what is Euclid trying to accomplish? Person after person I speak with say get out of Euclid. Why? Is it just white flight? Some say that but the biggest reason is the over burdensome government, an intrusive government. The city has put a stranglehold on buyers, sellers and owners. Though I do have to acknowledge that I have been told and have read in the Sun Journal that some inspections and regulations may be lifted. I applaud this first step.

Please explain what is a person suppose to do if funds aren't available for repairs? Is it correct to terrorize with threats and harassment? Terrorize is a strong word but thats exactly as some feel. I have heard comments ranging from if you don't comply or fix things Euclid will take your house, send you to jail, fine you. I know a family personally where so much stress was put on them it almost caused a split. They eventually left their house and moved to lake County. Maybe I don't even need to mention what others say as I have my own stories of Euclid. Besides the current warrant, in the spring of '08 I received a notice of violation for yard debris. At that time I had a tenant residing at the house on Crystal Ave. who had a landscaping service maintaining the yard. Shortly after this notice is when my tenant of five years said now I am insulted, I just want out of Euclid and left. Councilman Van Ho will testify to this.

I would like to know what Euclid is trying to accomplish? Is it right for residents to fear the city? When I received the first notice from Euclid in May '08 threatening that I need to register the properties I acted appropriately and wrote to Mayor Cervenik asking for help and advice. It did little good. One of his statements was you better pay they don't play, they will get you. What kind of society is Euclid trying to create?

Some inspections are needed but when should they be administered and how often is what needs to be changed. When I went for my house loan an appraiser came out, I also hired an inspector and my insurance agent looked at it. Do we need another inspection? Its time to revamp what Euclid currently has in place. According to Councilman Van Ho the inspections as they are now are a big net that catches everyone. Is this what we need to make everyone criminals and chase investment away? What about installing a system based on how many times police were called to a residence, neighbor complaints, unkempt yards, drive by inspections and not for such minor cosmetic issues such as windows that you can't really tell need replacing unless you pull in the drive and look.

Going back to one of the main points of this letter, what is a person suppose to do if no funds are available? Just about daily I read about the hardships most cities are facing, some far worse than others. Isn't the local government a microcosm of the people living in the city? If Euclid is broke, cutting back on personal, requesting stimulus money wouldn't it make sense then to realize so are the people living there facing the same issues? Where does the city get its money, from taxes. And the taxes come from where? People working, property tax, sales tax. So obviously if Euclid is broke so are the people living in the city or people have just left. Shouldn't Euclid be in a survival mode where they will go out of their way to keep people in houses rather than threaten? Is it better to have empty houses that only lower value or have houses with tenants living in them that may need some repair but not enough to be deemed unsafe? I have heard
estimates that this recession can last any where from another one to three years. If this is true then thats the time limit Euclid should be giving people who are in a financial bind.
Why is Euclid so intent making it difficult on landlords and investment? You would think Euclid would be asking me, Carey what is your success of keeping a tenant for 10 years and another for 5? Of course not, they just want to intrude, inspect and get their fee.
I bought both houses for long term investments. Its quite obvious I do not flip houses. Why wouldn't I fix them and keep then updated since they are for my retirement? So again I must stress, what is a person suppose to do if there is no funds? Councilman Van Ho suggested a low interest loan. Wonderful if you have the monthly payment to repay the loan?
My parents asked what are we going to do about this problem. I answered there is no problem, I get a tenant in the house, I save up a little at a time and replace the windows one at a time, see there is no problem, the problem is Euclid, if this was Wickliffe there would be no problem.
So I ask each one of you on council to seriously review and reread this letter several times and ask yourself if a person can't afford windows how will he post bond and pay court costs? Does this make the city any more business friendly and shed a positive light of wanting more people to invest? And then ask yourself does issuing a warrant because a person does not have the funds to replace windows is appropriate? I want you to really think on this. A person can go to jail because of not replacing windows.

Carey K. M.

additional note: an article in the News Herald on March 12 titled Blighted Urban Areas Need Help. It mentions Euclid and the foreclosure and reductions in population. This goes along right with what I have just written. Its time Euclid becomes business friendly and fill these houses.

While America burns the social tinkering takes center stage

Let me ask you.... why would anyone want to toy with the greatest fighting force on earth? Why mess with success?

New Bill Will Force Military Acceptance of Open, Proud Homosexuals

Legislation to repeal "Don't ask, don't tell" policy has been introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives. ....

H.R. 1283

The "Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2009"

Sponsored by Rep. Ellen Tauscher (D, CA-10) and 125 co-sponsors --see below-- and CALL your representative, especially if he/she is on this list.

To amend title 10, United States Code, to enhance the readiness of the Armed Forces by replacing the current policy concerning homosexuality in the Armed Forces, referred to as ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’, with a policy of nondiscrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

Question: Why did they not include "gender identity"? Is it because cross-dressers would too readily show how truly ridiculous this proposal is? How soon do you suppose that "civil right" will be added after this one is passed?

more oil than we know what to do with

This came from my friend John in Maine who is a watchdog of what he sends out to make sure if its factual or not. I also read about this last year in Time or Newsweek. The environmental wackos are doing everything they can to break this country so we will fall in line with the global one leader government. Obama is also hard at work pushing for a carbon tax which will raise gas to ridiculous prices. Just one more reason I will never vote Democratic.

Check this out!

GOOGLE it or follow this link. It will blow your mind.


The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April ('08) that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since '95) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota; western South Dakota; and extreme eastern Montana .... check THIS out:

The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska 's Prudhoe Bay, and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on fore ign oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.

'When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.' says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's financial analyst.

'This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years.' reports, The Pittsburgh Post Gazette. It's a formation known as the Williston Basin, but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.' And it stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada. For years, U. S. oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's massive reserves... and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!

That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 41 years straight.

2. And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should - because it's from TWO YEARS AGO!

U. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World!
Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006

Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction.

They reported this stunning news: We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth.

Here a re the official estimates:

- 8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia
- 18-times as much oil as Iraq
- 21-times as much oil as Kuwait
- 22-times as much oil as Iran
- 500-times as much oil as Yemen

- and it's all right here in the Western United States .

HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this? Because the environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil!

James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post.

Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find? Think again! It's all about the competitive marketplace, - it has to.

Got your attention/ire up yet? Hope so! Now, while you're thinking about it ... and hopefully P.O'd, do this:

3. Pass this along.. If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the next time you want to complain about gas prices .. because by doing NOTHING, you've forfeited your right to complain.

Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you sent this to every one in your address book.
