Meanwhile, the Windbag says that it's "shameful" for city employees to have city credit cards. He implies posh vacation resorts & mojitos for everybody. The city manager says it's more efficient than forcing employees to screw around with obtaining purchase orders. The Windbag has whipped his minions into a frenzy over the notion of rampant embezzlement that nobody has offered any proof of. As the names of the city employees with cards & their credit limit has been linked to by WCPO, any loon can now target them for whatever fantasy slight they can imagine.
And to top it off, the Windbag wants to take care of this now by Emergency Ordinance which his pals kinda just recently put the kibosh on.
Simply fucking amazing.

And I can now tell you, dear readers, fish logs are, well, ok.
I think mine was overcooked. It's a deep fried fish filet wrapped in mashed potatoes & batter (?). You can get a whole or half log (half is fine for a lunch).
The owner came in while I was there & it turns out he lives up around the corner from me. He told me the mural on the outside wall was originally painted in 1983 & he was able to get the same artist to recreate it after the building was repainted in 2009. it had become fairly ghostly. He was a lot more interesting than Dr Phil & Judge Judy but I think the waitress might disagree.
The bar takes up a surprisingly small part of the building. The kitchen looked ok, the bar area was a mismatched hodge podge of old crap. It was pretty much what you'd expect from looking at the outside.
The Old Timber Inn on Spring Grove Avenue @ Crawford is open from 10 - 8 Monday thru Friday.
Rating The Old Timber Inn from one to ten:
♠ Ambience 8 - dark, piles of junk, ancient wood paneling - the blue urinal was worth the price of admission
♠ Food 5 - it's exactly what I would have expected
♠ Service 6 - ok, I was the only one there, tho
♠ Hot Waitress 8 - jeans, sweatshirt & long brown hair…. can't argue with that

Home ownership in Cincinnati is about 40%. I don't know what the city real estate holdings by non residents are. Land ownership is an old criteria for voting rights. I guess we'd need some minimum amount of land to qualify a voter. People who couldn't afford that could possibly organize corporations that they could collectively vote. Presumably we could eliminate the lazy socialist renters (including transient college students) in the bargain, too.
This criteria was abandoned long ago because it excluded wealthy, educated people who opted to not participate in agricultural work.
Perhaps a minimum earnings? Average earnings of Cincinnati residents is a little over $30K. What the average wage in Cincinnati is, I do not know. As everything in the suburbs is a virtual paradise, I imagine these people who want a say in Cincinnati all make $100+K, so if we set the minimum wage qualifier at earning more than $50K inside the city limits, the people who want to rule the city but not live there could have their vote & the lowly, probably renting, Cincinnatians could be relieved of their disastrous voting legacy.
Or maybe it should just be where you went to high school. People who graduated from a Cincinnati high school prior to 1990 could vote in any & all Cincinnati elections. They could just use their old residences to define their precincts.
Cincinnati is a failed experiment in radical Marxism and is in sore need of some good old Christianistic, neo-Trotskyism.
What we need is

Anyway, it points up the willingness to use the agency for political gain. The FBI has used the IRS a lot, too, for criminal investigations & prosecutions.
As far as proving you're a non-profit, hell, PayPal raked me over the coals when I set up an account for a neighborhood non-profit that was completely above board - something the tease certainly are not.
But this "scandal" gives them their time in the spotlight, wailing and gnashing their teeth over being poor defenseless victims. It gives them more "links" to the Marxist, Muslim, terrorist Kenyan. Nothing new, just another day on the schoolyard.
