They support Donald Trump…

Which either means they don’t believe anything Donald Trumps says, or they don’t care about anything Donald Trump says, or they don’t understand anything Donald Trump says, or they are misleading the Delawarean public for unknown reasons….

This should raise giant flags… as if someone were supportive of Hitler… When you are a Republican and you don’t call out the leader of your party for what he is, you are a supporter of all he stands for…

It is not different from wearing a red arm band with a swastika in a white circle in Germany in 1932… No one has to ask you if you support Hitler back then, it was rightly assumed.

If you do not come out public and declare Trump unfit for office, as a Republican it means you support him… Flat out, unequivocally…

Even though you know the person privately does not support Trump because you’ve known and liked them for years, the very fact that they did not publicly come out and say “Vote for me; I do not support Trump” means they are not fit for office… :

Look at who they are silent about….

Someone who called all Mexicans rapists, claimed the president was born in Kenya, proposed banning an entire major religion from entering the United States, mocked a disabled reporter, said John McCain wasn’t a war hero because he was captured, attacked the parents of a fallen soldier, bragged about committing sexual assault, was accused by 12 women of committing sexual assault, said some of those women weren’t attractive enough to sexually assault, said more countries should get nukes, said the military should be forced to commit war crimes, said a judge was biased because his parents were Mexicans, said women should be punished for having abortions, incited violence at his rallies, said global warming was a hoax sponsored by the Chinese, called for his opponent to be jailed, declared bankruptcy 6 times, bragged about not paying income taxes, stiffed his contractors and employees, lost a billion dollars in one year, scammed customers in his fake university, bought a six foot tall painting of himself with money from his own fake foundation, has a trial for fraud coming up in November for that same fake foundation, insulted his opponent’s looks, insulted his opponent’s wife’s looks, bragged about grabbing women by the pussy, scheduled in court on charges of raping a 13 year old on December 16th,….. … how do you stay silent?

How do you stay silent?  How do you vote for this person?  How do you not create distance between yourself and this “thing” at the top of your ticket?

Do you think it will go away, if you ignore it?  If you say nothing?  If you keep your head down and focus just on yourself?

No, you ARE Republican. You are wearing that red armband with a big red R in a white circle.  This is who you are, unless you step out and say with a loud voice you do not support this “thing”  and you are totally against anything he does.  Silence is complicitness.

As voters we can do something about this…. we can compare the Republicans on our ballot (go to this Department of Elections website, put in your address to see the actual ballot at your polling place, it’s cool) to this list below and vote for their opponent… No matter who it is…

Yes, of course there are Confederate flag waving Trump extremists out there; but they are a very tiny minority.  We know he won’t win but that does not mean we too should accept these things as “part of life” and continue to put in those who silently supported that “thing” by remaining silent… Humanity across the globe is counting on all of you to vote against these listed below…. who by being cowards and not withdrawing their support, imply they silently stand solid on all that Donald Trump stands for….

Lip service is one thing. Actions are something else.  All of the above at this late date are still supportive of Donald Trump and what he stands for….

Sadly these are all the Republicans running for state office, but two… I must isolate and mention both of those two and encourage you to vote them in over their Democrat opponents (no loss there in both seats) to show the world that Delaware is not a satellite of Donald Trump….

These two very special people, the only two Delawarean Republicans who have repudiated history’s worst candidate,  Donald Trump,  are:

Meredith Chapman    Senate District 8

James Spadola    Senate District 1

I think not many of you know how hard this is….

“It takes great courage to stand up against one’s enemies.  It takes even greater courage, to stand up to ones friends…”

James Spadola and Meredith Chapman really need you to back them as they not only face entrenched Democratic opponents, but also the chagrin of a majority of their own party…

A common criticism they get from the red hats, is how can you do this to your party?   When finding oneself on the receiving end of such a question, silence for them is the best answer and to leave the answers to those questions coming from someone else….

Like me…

I wonder how Charlie Copeland, Colin Bonini, Greg Lavelle, La Mar T.Gunn, and a plethora of state reps and senators, can support and work for putting a non registered sex offender in the White House…

“Locker Room talk” said the non-registered sex offender… “It’s just talk” say both Copeland and Bonini… An “unfortunate choice of words” one of them called it…

If the party is run by such people, it cannot stand.  There is nothing worse than saying you believe there is a place for all people in the Republican Party but your actions support someone who will send all Mexicans, legal and illegal to concentration camps… ghettoize and starve all Afro Americans,  shoot to kill all Muslims attempting to legally enter the country, … encourage every man to grab a women’s pussy because “HE” can get away with it because Donald is President…

How can anyone support as their leader someone who has no care, no empathy, no concern, or no feelings for anyone’s perspective but his own?

The answer can only be one thing… People who support Trump and are doing it publicly, support what he is doing or has done, regardless of all words and slogans said otherwise…

All bad people are Republicans, but not all Republicans are bad…

There are two who probably possess a higher quality of humanness than the Democrat candidates they are opposing…

Voting for either Spadola or Chapman is doing something right for this country…  Electing a higher grade of human for office is always a win-win, regardless of party affiliation.

The Delaware Republican Party needs a top down change before it can ever again be relevant in Delaware politics… Instead of appealing to our worst instincts, they need to start appealing to our best one… The best way to achieve that is to support with your votes or finances these two candidates who not only stepped up for America to run for office, but, very early one, disavowed the non registered sex offender running for our nations highest office, long before “dissing the Don” was cool…

These two are heroes and we really need both quality individuals in the Delaware General Assembly…

Rather embarrassing for the entire party.  In case you haven’t heard, the Wall Street Journal just reported Reince Priebus ordered no more funding of Trump; all funds go down ballot.  Trump signs were stopped in the middle of printing…. The RNC just threw in the towel.

The first and foremost local Republican has always been Meredith Chapman who has distanced herself from Trump early on…

On the opposite spectrum, particularly damning were the comments of Trump’s state campaign manager for his campaign…. Quoted from the News Journal:

Rob Arlett, Delaware state chairman for the Trump campaign, said the remarks in the recording are “unacceptable,” but I’m not minimizing what was said; what is most important and is most impactful are the actions of Hillary Clinton,” Arlett said. “We should be focused on her cover-ups and corruption, not the words of Donald Trump from more than a decade ago.”….

Translated:  we should be chasing false leads of false scandals which have repeatedly been proven false and not to exist by almost everybody by now, all at the expense of ignoring a serial sexual predator who was just a few weeks ago, literally knocking at the door of the White House…  Typical Republican answer btw…

Notice how all Rob Arlett’s concern is over words?  The actions, sentiments, and immorality are apparently quite appropriate with him…

Secondly, Colin Bolini, Republican candidate for governor says he thought it appropriate for Trump to apologize….  He still endorses Trump wholeheartedly according to the News Journal.

Translated:  No, I don’t care that he was married and trying to pick up another married man’s wife , and groped her all over in his 10 year old daughter’s bedroom… He apologized for saying the “pu$$y ” word so therefore I wholeheartedly endorse him… His ethics and my ethics at least are parallel if not on the same track...

Bonini added:  He’ll support Trump because (get this)…. His is the message of government officials being out of touch with the sentiments of the citizens of this country…  Lol! He used this as the reason to continue his supporting Trump. Perhaps the Republicans should find another candidate for governor who is “more in touch” with the disgust the vast majority of Americans feel towards Republican “Hand On Their Pu$$y” Donald Trump… It appears he is the one who is “out of touch” with most American voters; especially all women…

As if to show Bonini how it needs to be done: the Republican running against Harris McDowell in Senate 1, expresses it precisely:

“Our party nominated a pig, and that’s going to make us all have to work a lot harder,” said James Spadola, (please show your support for his courage to stand up against his party and go here and donate) who said he was telling voters before the video disclosure that he does not support Trump….

“OUR PARTY NOMINATED A PIG”.…. Fair and balanced/ concise and to the point.

Some think the Trump thing will hurt lower party candidates… They are right….
Ranking Republicans say this destroys the image they have tried to create out of thin air this election cycle to trick voters into thinking that “Delaware Republicans have worked tirelessly to show all citizens that they have a place in our party.  We believe that every human being, man or woman, has inherent dignity. We stand by our efforts to promote individual liberty and economic freedom”. State Republican Chairperson Charlie Copeland said in his statement.“We will continue our battle to return Delaware to the successes and growth it had under Republican leaders like Pete du Pont and Mike Castle” (way back in the 1980’s, 30 years since the last time a Republican was governor)... He then acknowledged despite the newest scandal (of a married man trying to get in the pants of another married man’s wife in his own daughter’s bedroom during a business meeting),…  he would still be voting for Trump…..

Yep. That’s Charlie.

Meanwhile nationally, disgusted Kelly Ann Conway (who was running Trump’s campaign) dropped out of Sunday’s talk shows. Devastated Mike Pence had his schedule scrubbed for 48 hours, and Rudy Guiliani is filling in for both, doing all the talking. (That should go well). Oh, and if it is still on, there is a must-see debate, Sunday night, too….. with Hillary and you know it, Bill’s exploits will be front and center… It will be the show of a lifetime… seriously…

.

It is very simple.  If one Republican supports segregation, and the Republican Party does not expunge him from its party, obviously the Head of The Republican Party then automatically inherits the problem and becomes culpable….  But there are two Republicans doing this.  And both are the principal movers of the entire Republican Party (if not name, then deed) of Sussex County.

The only outcry from the Republican Party has been a buried press release from the head here in New Castle County, which no one read…..

That can only mean the Republican Party secretly supports segregation….

Think about it.  You are with a group of people and one starts harassing someone outside your group.  They could be liberal, gay, effeminate, Hispanic, urban, whatever. It doesn’t matter.  But that someone in your group  goes off half-cocked and bullies them n public…

What do you do, sitting there holding your beer?  Do you come to that person’s defense?  “Hey, you can’t do that to them.  You need to leave us right now,  You don’t represent us! You sicken me.  In fact, I’m going to punch my fist right through your f’n head. Then when you’re down I’m going use my new cowboy boots to grind your head into tomato paste.”   (Because if you did,  The bullying would probably stop immediately, since you were becoming  the new threat.)

But probably not.  Most likely you are going to sit there, silent, pondering all your choices, and from the outside keep a stoic face so all around you, especially that person being verbally abused, will assume you are just part of the posse, going along with the sheriff doing the abusing…  If ever later questioned why you chose not to intervene, you will say  “I’m not prejudiced. I actually like “those people”.  I don’t have a part in this fight.  Of course I don’t agree with him, but I’m not going to get into a fist fight with someone I work with…. ”

And thus, through yours and your acquaintance’s  cowardice, you allow the abuse to continue.  Someone else another day, will feel the ire, and then someone else the day later, etc….  The real problem is allowed to continue. And we all know;  it is a real problem.

So when we all are held accountable, (as to why did you do nothing to stop it), despite whatever excuse we proffer it will become obvious to us that there was indeed another choice at that time which could have been made…. We could have done something….

That is why one press release read by nobody, is not enough.  Only one action and one action alone is strong enough to send the proper message that this behavior will NOT be tolerated.  That is to permanently ban Vince Phillips and Sam Wilson from any Republican Party affiliation.  That is to public excommunicate them from the Republican Party of Delaware… That is to issue a restraining order banning Vince Phillips and Sam Wilson from any function even remotely connected to the Republican Party of Delaware…..

IF the Republican Party does not take such drastic action…. they are culpable just as you or I would be if a friend of ours started demeaning a stranger in our presence.   WE WOULD BE GUILTY TOO…..

This is why, no… as in zero… self-respecting human being should donate, volunteer, or even vote for any Republican until the Republican Party has elicited some serious cost upon the perpetrators…  Considering the moral weakness previously exhibited by their current leader, I predict that will be highly unlikely….

I further predict that segregation against the “colored people”  will be continue to be openly practiced in Sussex County because it now has the unspoken  “protection” of the Republican Party.

The same controversy surrounding Tennessee’s equivalent of SB51, has at least that state’s Democrats fighting for those educating our children .  Not like up here where Dave Sokola and Erica Jenner joined forces and sold the teaching profession out for a couple of pieces of silver.

Think for a second.

If your boss gave you a pop quiz at work, how well do you think you’d do? … Guesses?

The correct answer is: you would do only as well as he wanted you to do.  If he wanted you do do well, he’d quiz you on things you do every day enabling you to pass with high marks.  If he wants you doing poorly, he fills the test up irrelevant questions, that you haven’t thought about in decades (because they are irrelevant); at work you are constantly being bombarded with things that truly do matter..

So we are talking about taking a teacher’s license away because her students did poorly on a standardized test, not by how good or not good the teacher is!

Does the teacher make the test?  Of course not:  the test is made many states away by people who have never stepped foot in a classroom and get paid 6 digit salaries. The tests are untried at the time of taking. They are not last year’s test remade.  No one knows how relevant or non relevant these tests are.

Does the teacher get to know the material on the test so she can teach her students the relevant data?  No, that would be cheating.  The teacher has to guess before hand what will or will not be covered, and then has to teach her best guess.  What if those think tank “specialists” have different philosophies?  Bad scores.

Does the teacher get to interpret the test, to explain the questions in a way the child might better understand?  No, that is considered leading the child.  So if a child can’t understand the question, because they haven’t a Masters or Doctorate degree in education, they fail.

Does the teacher have any control over the test taking environment?  No, if every one stays up late to watch Breaking Bad, and then texts till two in the morning about what happened on the show, and what might happen on next week’s episode.,..  they will do poorly.  To them its some dumb test that doesn’t matter anyway.  They’ll still get promoted…  456 + 789… ah, my head hearts…  let me guess… umm  “{c}”

Imagine lining up all of Delawares School Board and Rodel Foundation officers around the Governor, as he signs SB 51, and taking one photo, then firing all those who blinked, grimace, moved, or otherwise “failed” to properly enhance the photo…..

As their cleaning out their office, you can here Hefferman mutter… “they didn’t even count down. They just took the picture.  If they’d counted down, I could have been ready.”

And speaking of FAILURES.  OH!  MY!  GOODNESS!!!  Rodel’s Vision 2015 has failed to meet its objectives (GOALS) it set for itself back in 2006.  They have had 7 of the 9 years they gave themselves to make it happen. Instead of  firing itself, it announces its name is now Rodel 2020….  But a teacher who’s students blink during 3 hours one day from watching Breaking Bad the night before?  YOU’RE A LOUSY TEACHER!   WHAT A FAILURE YOU ARE!  GET OUT OF OUR SCHOOL!  EVEN BETTER!  GET YOU OUT OF OUR ENTIRE PROFESSION!

That is why this is so stupid. SB51 is so stupid. Everyone who voted for it, without reading it, is so stupid.  Every blog except those who raised awareness against it, is so stupid.  Mr. Sweeney, is so stupid….

I won’t belabor the point anymore.  But firing a teacher for a photo moment, is ridiculous.  Taking away their license for the same should in a proper universe, damn you to an eternity in Hell.

If you yourself personally choose to go to Hell, you will find the following assorted people there to keep you company.

Blevins,  Hocker,  Peterson,
Bonini,  Lavelle,  Pettyjohn,
Bushweller, Lawson,  Poore,

Just looking over that list, … I would bet that if this list ever got public, and people could see the likes of the company they’d be spending their eternity with, .. our churches would be overflowing this weekend!…

By the way, can anyone out there possibly tell me when was the last time a doctor lost his license for one case of malpractice judgment decided in court against him? Or one Secretary of Education fired for in his first year statewide test results, in what even the friendly News Journal headline lambasted as: “Disappointing Results”?

GO TO CHURCH!

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.

Today is School Board Elections…Polls are open 10-8…  If anyone is sponsored by Markell or Rodell or RTTT or WSFS, don’t vote for them.. If anyone is sponsored by DSEA, they are on the students side. They are safe.

So go out and vote like a goat… Be…  B-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-D

From Nancy at Delaware Way, we have info regarding the vote today.  The House committee overseeing this bill, cleared it by a 7-1 vote.

The Speaker of the House has offered a new amendment...  This allows for the Bond Bill Committee formerly known as the JOINT COMMITTEE ON CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT, to oversee the bill, and report back to both chambers with its recommendation.   Both chambers will then vote, and if the Governor approves, it gets signed into law.

Who is on the Bond Committee?  The following people:

Sen. Robert Venables (Chair)
Sen. Brian J. Bushweller
Sen. Bethany Hall-Long
Sen. David P.Sokola
Sen. Colin R. J. Bonini
Sen. Gerald W. Hocker

Rep.Quinn Johnson (Co-Chair)
Rep. Helene M. Keeley
Rep. Michael P. Mulrooney
Rep. Dennis E. Williams
Rep. Michael Ramone
Rep. David L. Wilson

Out of this list we have the following people who voted against the bill when it was in the Senate….

Sen. Robert Venables (Chair)

Sen. Brian J. Bushweller

Sen. Colin R. J. Bonini

Sen. Gerald W. Hocker

Known sponsors are….

Rep. Helene M. Keeley

Rep. Michael P. Mulrooney

Sen. Bethany Hall-Long

Sen. David P.Sokola

We have 4 for, and 4 against, and 4 still thinking.  If it goes along party lines, the vote will fall as a tie. 6 to 6.

Alan Levin has expressed concern that the bill not pass the General Assembly because doing so might jeopardize the deal.

The Schwartzkopf Amendment might cause just such a non-passage….

For this bill to pass, we must count on the House, where there are sufficient votes, to defeat the Schwartzkopf Amendment, and then pass the bill as approved by committee straight from the Senate.  It can then go to the governor’s desk,….. where…..

They thought he was nuts.

Well, yes. Of course there is… Duh.

When most Afro-Americans were being held as slaves by their white masters and kept chained either by iron or psychological control, there was no possible way they could be violent to whites, unless those whites got careless, making it the white person’s fault through negligence if they got killed by one of there financial properties.

So yes, of course there is… End of story.

Not quite, … Should we go back to enslaving a large group of humans based on the amount of melanin in their skin, just to go back to the quite comfort of white on white violence? How about white on Mexican violence? Here is one rivaling Stalin/Hitlers killing off the Jews… How …. about…. white…. on …. American Indian…. violence.. That was cool stuff apparently … Colin Flattery grew up idolizing that on black and white TV…..

You’d expect a book like this from someone who once thought F Troop was real.
