Lucy May, Senior Staff Reporter for the Business Courier of Cincinnati has written an article a very enlightening article about a group of Cincinnati citizens who have started a group for the sole purpose of stopping the current influx of petitions by local group(s) that are attempting to stop what they call "the city becoming economically competitive" and "derail the city's ability to move forward".
The story reads as follows:
As far as Rob Richardson, Bobby Maly and Joe Spengard are concerned, the streetcar ballot initiative isn't about the city's$200 million streetcar proposal, not at all.
The ballot language would require a majority of the people before Cincinnati city government could proceed with any kind of passenger rail service or planning throughout the city. And that, they argue, could stop economic progress dead in its tracks.
"We can't limit the ability of the city to even entertain different forms of transportation," said Richardson, a lawyer who worked locally on Barack Obama's presidential campaign. "This is really about being a city that's economically competitive."
Meet Cincinnatians for Progress, a new organization with broad support from the city's political establishment.

Now, what do you think of that folks? A group of citizens exercising their constitutional right to assemble and express their thoughts and opinions whether others agree with them or not. Now I know you will hear all kinds of stuff on local so-called black talk radio and a lot of rhetoric from a local organization's PRESIDENT who, of course will express (very loudly I might add) his PRESIDENTIAL thoughts regarding this new group and its "true intentions". This so-called PRESIDENT will attempt to brainwash you into his way of thinking. But what this PRESIDENT is unwilling to accept due to his own out of control ego is people have their own thoughts and opinions and not everyone out here is stupid, dumb and ignorant.
Nor is everyone out here with black skin under his so-called divine "strong leadership".
Cincinnatians for Progress are assembling to counter whatever it is they think is not in the best interest of Cincinnati right, wrong or indifferent. They have that right.
FYI FOLKS: People can think for themselves. Believe it or not. And guess what? The people of Cincinnati don't need the permission of the NAACP or the permission of its current ego-driven PRESIDENT to do so.
