Ban The ODOT Freeway Sound Barriers in Brooklyn Centre

22 Signatures Goal: 100

1. We don't want them, these sound barriers 15 feet high lining both sides of the I-71 freeway, hiding our beautiful community from the world passing by, walling us in, shutting off the light and air, destroying the natural barriers we have had in place for decades. 2. ODOT, we already told you this in 2005. Why is it you JUST DON'T LISTEN!!! 3. We want to ban erected, man-made constructs that mar the landscape, cut off the flow of air, and impair the view in, and the view out. And we want to do that not just here, but in like-minded communities across the state of Ohio. We think this needs to come to the attention of Governor Strickland and all the other elected officials who are supposed to serve us, not subjugate us. 4. We want to allow for implementations of intelligent, holistic, sustainable natural solutions to noise and privacy problems, and we want to make this sort of approach an integral part of our neighborhood philosophy. We are the park neighborhood that gave birth to the Cleveland City Zoo, and we are proud of our natural heritage and our built heritage. 5. We want to make this decision to ban these quick and cheap concrete barriers a permanent and statutory decision, much like zoning. When you sign the petition, leave your street address in the COMMENTS section, please. The ODOT representatives have stated that they want to give more weight to the requests of people who are more proximate to the proposed sound barriers. The people on Smith Avenue, when they presented their written petitions to the ODOT bureaucrats, were told that they would still get walls, but that they would be transparent in places. Your email and your phone number will not be displayed in the public view of the petition signers.

    A teachable moment, ILLEGAL ALIEN TERMINOLOGY: The 14th Amendment-
    Illegal alien is the CORRECT TERM, for those who sneak into our country in violation of our immigration laws.
    TO CLARIFY, an ALIEN is any person who is NOT a citizen or natural of the United States. An IMMIGRANT is an alien admitted to the United States as a LAWFUL permanent resident.
    An ILLEGAL ALIEN is someone who enters the United States WITHOUT immigration inspection or WITHOUT an appropriate visa authorizing entry.
    The term illegal immigrant is often used interchangeably with illegal alien. However, the CORRECT TERM for a person entering the United States UNLAWFULLY is ILLEGAL ALIEN.
    The politically-correct phrase UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANT has NO LEGAL BASIS – it is simply a TERM USED by those WHO SUPPORT OPEN BORDERS as an attempt to reframe terminology used in the immigration debate.
    The Fourteen (14) Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is currently MISINTERPRETED to GIVE citizenship to children born in the United States of ILLEGAL ALIEN parents. These children, via their birthright citizenship, act as ANCHOR BABIES and can, upon reaching the age of majority, facilitate bringing their extended family into the U.S. in order to obtain citizenship. Although some experts believe that a Constitutional amendment would be necessary to remedy the misinterpretation, many believe that CONGRESSIONAL ACTION would be SUFFICIENT and is URGENTLY warranted.
