It is rare in politics when you can see clarity over where a person or party wants to go.. Our former congressman Mike Castle was very good at talking out of both sides of his mouth… I once heard him extol all the benefits of dismantling public schools, and was getting really angry over his direction, and swearing to myself that he had to be unseated by any means possible, even a Tea Party candidate, and then, almost in the same breath, he said: “one the other hand….” and begin running down my list of why public schools had to be saved… and I could feel myself cheering for each one… “yes, he gets it..”
It was my eye opener to politics in the real world. Prior I had the naive assumption one pitched causes to one’s constituents and ran on whether they wanted to go or not go in that direction… For example in Newark, if you want to breathe toxic elements you vote for this candidate, and if you want something more eco-friendly to go into the Star campus, you vote for their opponent. Real politics doesn’t work that way. In real politics both candiates play both sides and dodge being pinned to any side whatsoever… aka Chris Coons, John Carney, and Tom Carper… for examples….
So it is refreshing when clarity sneaks in through a back door… Like X ray glasses. When you see the skeleton upon which all the now invisible flesh is hanging….you surmise the flesh form would kind of be draped across the skeletal frame you currently see in your vision. If the skeleton was crouched, about ready to pounce, you should know to run, even thought you had no idea what animal’s skin and fur and facial features, If the skeleton was ambling slowly to you, head to the ground, like a horse, apparently grazing, you would know it probably was safe to relax and check it out more closely….
The skeleton of the Republican party is its money. Without big money it couldn’t survive. It certainly doesn’t represent real human being’s interests. It represents a very radical minorities interest and without huge sums of money, it would by now long have been eliminated…. Like impoverished flesh draped across a skeleton, it’s shape IS its skeletal structure, which in this case is… HUGE money.
Don’t know if anyone else is familiar with literature surrounding pimps and hoes. Unfortunately my knowledge mostly comes from one ancient Tom Clancy novel.. In that relationship, psychological control was established by isolating a subject down to one single lifeline which the pimp controls. Everything must go through him/her, otherwise you perish. This enables the handler to get his subject to behave as he wishes, often in ways the subject would never have done on their own. Crazy things happen in this way.
That is the best analogy as to how a creep like David Koch, can make Republicans everywhere do crazy, almost suicidal things. Shutting down the government and getting absolutely nothing in return… Remember that? No? Don’t worry, it got quickly pushed off the screen by the Obamacare rollout. Remember the success of Obamacare? Probably not; That was yesterday pushed off the air by Issa and the IRS Tax Controversy, which last year was determined to not be any of a controversy at all… The contention now, is that taking the fifth is not taking the firth if one makes a statement when taking the fifth… Yes! Of course it is bizarre. Would anyone be talking about it if it wasn’t bizarre? And that is the point. Push success off the table, and put something, anything on to scream about… Did anyone hear about Benghazi? Despite that nothing un-American happened, despite a very rational explanation by the CIA that satisfies all inquisitiveness over how it played out … there is under this almost perfect Republican President, nothing else to put on the table…. So. Benghazi it is…
Usually craziness like this would be dropped. How many utterances by a Tourette syndrome sufferer currently make the nightly national news? Probably quite a bit,… if they were as wealthy and as willing to spend as is David Koch….
The point of this embellishment, is to show that the current irrational behavior of the Republican Party, if understood by the relationship of pimp to hoe, is actually very rational. Just like an abused child has to use their brain to navigate around their irrational and sick, diseased abuser, so do Republican operatives have to do irrational things to stay alive and in office….
So putting on one’s X ray glasses and looking at the Republican Party, one sees nothing but the skeletal frame of David Koch….. Studying what is David Koch, will point us to what the Republican Party is going to do, when we elect them in 2014….. It is pretty much determined that without any type of uprising, they WILL win both houses of Congress in 2014…. So what will that be like?
Study the frame of David Koch…. By luck, we were handed a copy of what David Koch stood on 34 years ago…. ..He was vice president of the Libertarian Party, and he published a testament to all he believes…. As you know, even though George HW Bush was silent after accepting Reagan’s VP offer, prior to that he coined the term “Voodoo Economics” which even after all this time, he still believes he was right today. And so do we. The point, is that whenever one is campaigning for oneself… one tends to be very honest. It is only after one loses or after one wins, that one begins talking outside of both sides of one’s mouth… Therefore if we could only find somewhere, what David Koch was running on and stood for in that campaign, we would know exactly what the Republican Party will do if both houses get owned by it in 2014….
Guess what? We do. Thanks to Bernie Sanders who brought it back up to the surface…. If this is what you believe in, then by all means, vote Republican… But if this really scares you. even if you currently resided in a safe district, you can’t just sit still. IF you sit still like always. then expect this……
We , the Koch- funded Republican Party of 2014 do attest to the following….
“We urge the repeal of federal campaign finance laws, and the immediate abolition of the despotic Federal Election Commission.”
“We favor the abolition of Medicare and Medicaid programs.”
“We oppose any compulsory insurance or tax-supported plan to provide health services, including those which finance abortion services.”
“We also favor the deregulation of the medical insurance industry.”
“We favor the repeal of the fraudulent, virtually bankrupt, and increasingly oppressive Social Security system. Pending that repeal, participation in Social Security should be made voluntary.”
“We propose the abolition of the governmental Postal Service. The present system, in addition to being inefficient, encourages governmental surveillance of private correspondence. Pending abolition, we call for an end to the monopoly system and for allowing free competition in all aspects of postal service.”
“We oppose all personal and corporate income taxation, including capital gains taxes.”
“We support the eventual repeal of all taxation.”
“As an interim measure, all criminal and civil sanctions against tax evasion should be terminated immediately.”
“We support repeal of all law which impede the ability of any person to find employment, such as minimum wage laws.”
“We advocate the complete separation of education and State. Government schools lead to the indoctrination of children and interfere with the free choice of individuals.Government ownership, operation, regulation, and subsidy of schools and colleges should be ended.”
“We condemn compulsory education laws … and we call for the immediate repeal of such laws.”
“We support the repeal of all taxes on the income or property of private schools, whether profit or non-profit.”
“We support the abolition of the Environmental Protection Agency.”
“We support abolition of the Department of Energy.”
“We call for the dissolution of all government agencies concerned with transportation, including the Department of Transportation.”
“We demand the return of America’s railroad system to private ownership. We call for the privatization of the public roads and national highway system.”
“We specifically oppose laws requiring an individual to buy or use so-called “self-protection” equipment such as safety belts, air bags, or crash helmets.”
“We advocate the abolition of the Federal Aviation Administration.”
“We advocate the abolition of the Food and Drug Administration.”
“We support an end to all subsidies for child-bearing built into our present laws, including all welfare plans and the provision of tax-supported services for children.”
“We oppose all government welfare, relief projects, and ‘aid to the poor’ programs. All these government programs are privacy-invading, paternalistic, demeaning, and inefficient. The proper source of help for such persons is the voluntary efforts of private groups and individuals.”
“We call for the privatization of the inland waterways, and of the distribution system that brings water to industry, agriculture and households.”
“We call for the repeal of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.”
“We call for the abolition of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”
“We support the repeal of all state usury laws.”
Sound familiar? Of course it does…. As goes the pimp, so goes the hoe….

Delaware Liberal has running commentary here……
Especially if you enjoy videos that don’t have things jumping around in the background every nanosecond….
If you watch this, use it to judge Corporates influence in America today. I think one can begin to see who is the true architect of our “Downsloping Century” demise
Caution: before continuing understand it is dangerous to take one isolated incident and use it to prove a point. But, oh, this does it so well.
Remember back when people who loved guns more than children were saying (and still do in the News Journal) that gun laws were attacking people who followed the law, and not criminals?
Well, in Milwaukee, a random road rage incident took place between two conceal and carry gun owners. and they drove all over Milwaukee, on and off freeways and through residential and commercial areas, shooting at each other like John Wayne being attacked by a pack of Apaches (indians, not helicopters)…
Both guilty men were sane, law abiding citizens. Both felt with the Zimmerman defense of a corrupt law, they were quite well within the law to kill because of “threats”, and so a ridiculous gun battle reminiscent of the movie Stagecoach took place all over Milwaukee using cars instead of horses….I mean we don’t even show that in movies anymore; that meme died out with the A-Team!
Proving what reasonable people have said all along and the NRA scared certain chicken hearted lawmakers (bock, bock, bock, you know who you are, Bonini & Lavelle) into disregarding… All gun owners have a crazy streak.
You have to regulate guns. Period. You just have too because nobody is safe if you don’t! Period.
When you have two reasonably sane human being who would have nothing ever to do with each other, suddenly go berserk for only one, single, solitary reason: they are carrying a gun, then the problem is the gun.
You have to regulate the gun, not the person. Period.
Anyways, since I must confess this sounds like so much fun, (I think paintball car chases would be so awesome) that we should expect quite a few more to copycat in the very near future.
But remember this: it was because they both felt entitled that the law would support them, they took off and performed this act which fortunately did not kill anyone… But it very well could have. The law allowing guns to be concealed and carried, was the principal cause. not the people themselves.
Regulate guns. period. And don’t listen to the NRA. They’re full of crap.
The officers shot in the New Castle County Courthouse shooting speak out, for the first time since the tragic event, in support of the federal Bulletproof Vest Partnership. Their vests were purchased at half the cost to Capitol Police through the federal Bulletproof Vest Partnership, which expired last summer. Senator Coons is fighting to bring the grant program back.Coons doesn’t believe law enforcement should have to stand on street corners with a tip cup to get funding.
“I think the federal government owes this to local and state law enforcement,”
So we will make them beg for dollars in a tin cup, but we are too cowardly to ban high capacity clips and assault weapons?
Do you know who the biggest pushers of these two bans are? Not parents but our first responders…. They were during the 1990’s and are now the ones asking our legislators to do the right thing and step up to ban high capacity clips, and ban automatic weapons….
(Delaware Law will only regulate new purchases and will not impose any hardship whatsoever on current owners )….
But isn’t it the height of hypocrisy that we can’t muscle the stamina to help out a first responder with passing two trite pieces of legislation, but we can certainly fan the flames to get press coverage of them begging for money so they can please, please have 14 times a better chance of living through a firefight? Think about it.
Just ban the sale of high capacity clips and assault rifles… Help a first responder out……
Lost my Gun, What should I do?
Lost my Gun, What should I do?
Lost my Gun, What should I do?
Better call nine, one, one…..
A. You tell me! Should it be illegal to walk into Dover Mall with a gun and pop in a 30 round clip?
Yes, it should. Vote for HB 58…
B. You tell me! Should it be perfectly legal to have a gun with a 30 round clip on a shooting range where it won’t hurt anyone?
Yes, it should. Vote for HB 58…
C. You tell me! Should it be perfectly legal to have a gun with a 30 round clip in ones home, as protection against forced entry?
Yes, it should. Vote for HB 58…
The only reason a misguide legislator could ever find to vote AGAINST .. HB 58, would be if he wished… TO SEE PEOPLE DIE! This law protects gun owners and changes nothing for anyone owning a clip over 10 rounds.. However this new law will make high capacity clips illegal in public places other than a shooting range… That is a very good idea. Genius in fact.
I was just challenged by the owner of a gun blog to illustrate how well gun control works.
US = no gun control == 14078 gun homicides==0.00446% of the population==. 4.69 per 100000
Somalia = no gun control== 138 gun homicides==0.0000138% of the population==1.38 per 100,000
Yeman = no gun control== 990 homicides (by any means)==0.0000413% = 4.304 per 100,000 (this total includes deaths by swords, stonings, long curved knives and guns).
Japan = good gun control == 11 gun homicides== 0.00000866% of population == 0 per 100,000
S. Korea = good gun control ==14 gun homicides == 0.0000290% of population == 0 per 100,000
Spain = good gun control == 67 gun homicides == 0.0000565% of population == 0 per 100,000
Finally, Australia. a single country on both sides of the spectrum! One that had no gun control, then passed legislation which controlled guns. In similar terms out of 100,000, it went from a high ratio of 4.71 to 1.06…. Gun control where you make it illegal to own a military grade weapon works deliciously well…
Now, Mike W. Prove how homicides go down when you give everyone a gun … Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha…
The stupid NRA has their head wedged so far up their butt, I bet it hurts bad when they try to sit down…
OH SHUT UP YOU STUPID OLD FARTS!
Since the rampage at Connecticut, less than five months later — this list includes 137 accidental shootings, 57 of which were fatal. These children and teens were accidentally shot by themselves, by parents, siblings, relatives, friends, neighbors, and caregivers. In other words, these shootings were not by strangers. Many of the guns used in these shootings were obtained by family members for personal protection.
Isn’t that far more important? 137 accidental shootings because we can’t responsibly handle weapons of mass destruction?
137/ 57 fatal Guns in the US are the log in our eye. Meanwhile we try to take splinters out of the eyes of others!
And we’re wasting yet another day of Congress to rehash what the last 17 hearings on the same topic have dug up? One that killed just 4 Americans in a terrorist ambush, something of which we have no control over? And we want to get down to the bottom of who is to blame? But 137 actual shootings occur, and these same people drink champagne and eat caviar while whooping and rejoicing that background checks got defeated?
We have got to rid ourselves of these outdated farting Republicans, either one way or another….. Maybe give them some Beano. For heavens sake, let’s get our nation’s priorities in order.
There is a dual application of interpretation going on. The new head of the NRA James Porter, an attorney who defends gun manufactures in lawsuits, is quoted as calling our president a fake president; he once termed the Civil War of Southern Disobedience, as the “War of Northern Aggression,”; he believes that one of our highest priorities should be to train and arm all our citizens so that, when the time comes, they can “fight tyranny” and impose their will upon the rest of the population; who believes white is right, brown goes down, and guns are the way to achieve that end…..
He is now the new head of the NRA, an organization once dedicated to outdoor sportsmen and hunters.
If he were Muslim, he’d be under surveillance for fear of blowing up people at a Marathon.. James Porter’s words are more inciteful than any mullah.
Either we back off all Muslims, or we treat the NRA as we would Al Qaeda under Osama Bin Laden….
Not to do so is simply continuing a double standard…..
The NRA … IS the new Muslim…. Anyone who condones Newtown Connecticut as a great secret United States of American plot is simply put, … untrustworthy. It is time to round up all NRA members in put them in internment camps for observation just as we did for the Japanese during WWII..
