Hello, hello, is anyone in there?

Nod if you can hear me… is there anybody home?

Get this… tonight as I speak… (or write)  there are at the behest of Nancy Pelosi 174 Democratic Representatives who have signed the letter in support of adding unemployment benefits extensions to the new budget about to be voted in….

Without them, everyone who is on extended unemployment, roughly 4.1 million do not receive an unemployment check in two weeks.  They are destitute.

29 have at this point, not signed….   Here they are…..

When your mom gets cancer. You don’t hate your mom. You hate the cancer.

Likewise, it was hard not to like the German people during WWII. It was easy to hate the fact that they were trying to kill you.

And so it is with Republicans… 99% of them are just like us. They too love their country; they too want it fixed; they too are angry, frustrated that events are not moving at fast-forward..

They are wonderful people; who also, happen to be Americans. We can never forget that if we were together in a bar with beer, wine, and spirits flowing like milk and honey, we’d all have a “gay ole time” (Flintstones’ reference) …

We want the same things, and we should be working together on fixing America… but we can’t….

Because of the Cancer…..

That cancer is not necessarily the Republican Party, but it is, the force that IS currently manipulating the Republican Party. That cancer is not a single person in the Republican hierarchy… It is instead that revision of the old cancer, that originally was against recognizing new states into the Federal Union. It is that old cancer that kept slavery legal for thirty years beyond when it should have been eliminated. It is the revision of that old cancer that kept blacks as second class citizens across the South. It is the cancer that fought against giving the Negro their Civil Rights. It is that cancer that denied Tobacco caused cancer. It was the same cancer that encouraged the killing of 4 students at Kent State, to teach those dirty hippies who listened to the Doors, a lesson they wouldn’t forget. It is the same cancer that denied the process of evolution, denied birth control, denied NPR, and ran rampant against all evidence of global warming…… Each time; they were wrong.

It is the same cancer that blew up a building in Oklahoma City.

It is the same cancer that fired bullets into working men and women who were refusing to work, until they got a raise…

It is the same cancer that took out Gabby Gifford……

With all these offenses, it is easy to point your finger and say, “Damn you Republicans..” It is in fact, way too easy.

But is not the people voting Republican who are to blame… They, like the German people, are bystanders. often gaping wide eyed when shown the truth, of what their support for the force of evil did to innocent men and women.

It is easy to turn all Republicans into demons if you don’t talk to them. But listening to them talk, (and we’re talking real people here, not their David Korsch’s) it is very easy to find common ground.

That common ground is this: sure, you tax the wealthy, and we’ll cut spending and together we’ll have high revenue with less expense, and be out of this mess in no time….

This is what every card carrying Republican is telling me, that is of course, if they don’t subscribe to the “cult-like” Republican meetings…. They say: “tax the fuckin’ wealthy; it won’t affect me; Just make sure that extra money is not wasted but is used to pay down the waste we already spent!”

Democrats have already offered to cut Medicare, Social Security, Defense Spending, all those things dear to their heart… So the problem isn’t them.

The problem is with the Republicans, who have balked on the tax issue, especially when it comes to raising taxes on millionaires… yet they have no qualms raising taxes on the middle class and poor. Republicans have shut down the Federal Government four times this year. Four times! They did so each time because the obvious was about to happen. WE were about to get a consensus among the rational members of both parties on how we were going to raise taxes and cut expenses (at the same time) which would bring us into line.

They pulled out of negotiations and said: we will not raise taxes one penny… and also, we will not do any business either in the House or Senate, until the Bush Tax Cuts are permanent.

And that,in one sentence, is why nothing gets done.

It’s as if a terrorist broke into your workplace. Under gunpoint he straps C4 to several of your firm’s employees, and starts firing his gun out the window to get everyone’s attention….

Rule Number 1: You don’t negotiate with terrorists.

That is the problem Obama and the rest of America is faced with, raising this question:

Do we attack (shut down government) and later clean up, or do we negotiate something we can both live with?

What do you do with cancer… Leave it? live with it?

There’s your answer to today’s political gridlock.

Removing all Democrats will be like having the Brits flee France across the channel, leaving the Nazi’s to run France without contention….

Removing all Republicans will be like marching triumphantly into Berlin.

It is pretty obvious who is the cancer and who is not. WE, THE PEOPLE, can’t let it linger any longer. The cancer must go, preferably without killing its host in the process…

Having recently seen the Harry Potter movie, it is scary. Ever since watching…. I now see giants everywhere. Before when I looked, I never knew they were there…

Two giants will be doing battle here in Delaware… (The recession is finally paying off for our little state.)

Papers were filed with the ITC (International Trade Commission) by the South Korean giant Samsung LED against a division of another giant this time from Germany, Siemens….. over 8 patient infringements.

Samsung LED also said it filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Delaware to seek damages and a permanent injunction to bar Siemen’s subsidary, Osram’s alleged patent infringement from entering this country.

At stake is the financial future of these two companies. One will win, and the other for lack of a better word, will be vanquished.

Since Siemens actually has a plant in Delaware, next to the Glasgow Park off Route 40 and 896, I’m putting my bets on that giant…. if they get hurt, it will cost jobs.

Hotels, restaurants, transportation companies all stand to be a little busier as this gigantic fight, gets under way…. It would be helpful to practice on the Korean and German dialects now, before the event gets under way…

Sprechen sie deutsch?

니미럴 개자식 ….

It should be an interesting fight.

We were round tabling this discussion when one person said… “What if the US just gave up after Pearl Harbor?”

Valid point.

Now I’m all for people speaking their mind. I’m all for supporting the majority. And like the founding fathers, I have implicit faith in the ability of the people to sort out our problems and separate wheat from the chaff… if not the first time, then definitely over time.

Most ordinary people I know have far more wisdom than any leader I’ve had the privilege to share conversation with. Therefore I believe in the sanctity of the people’s choice. If the people voted him in, he’s there for a reason.

But that’s only if the election was fair. If someone padded the ballot box, or switched vote totals, than obviously this premise wouldn’t apply for the very reason that the choice of the people was not the person who was actually representing them.

Mike was bushwhacked, sort of like the US was at Pearl Harbor or on 09/11…Reading his interview yesterday in the News Journal, one gets a sense that perhaps this was not a fair fight…. By election laws it was, and we all have to accept the primary results. However, if Mike doesn’t run as a write-in, he is putting himself in the same position as if the United States did nothing after Pearl Harbor or 9/11….

And with Mike, it is not about winning, although winning would be nice. It would be about whether good or evil triumphed. Polls say it’s Mike’s race to lose. He actually has enough money to send every voter a personal card telling them exactly how much he’s done for them, how that will soon change for the worse, and explain how to write in his name and send the evil perpetrators back to their cardboard boxes.

If Mike doesn’t do this…. exactly then, what is he saying to future generations of Americans? ? That we should just give up when hit from behind with a baseball bat? That it’s the American way to lay down and bend over? That being a man, is knowing when to run away and hide? That brutality and tastelessness are the new American Way? That perhaps Christine was right? Castle has no man pants on? That the wishes of Delawareans don’t matter; we’ll stop immediately and do what Californians tell us? That how we brush off defeat is a better mark of character, than coming back strong and punishing the evil that befell us?

And sentences keep coming one after another… the list keeps going on…

But if I were in Mike Castles shoes, and if it were me looking over the entire scene before me… I would have no choice but to say I’m in… Oh yes, I would wait till the last minute of September 30th to do so… and I would create a smoke cloud beforehand by pretending to roll over and let bygones be bygones… …. …. and from somewhere out of the fog, then overwhelmingly, I’d strike.

I wouldn’t hold back.. It’d be my last race, it would be the one I pulled all my stops for. Every person I’d ever helped would get a personal appeal from me. Unconditional Surrender would be our rallying cry, just like for the troops of WWII… Our goal would be not just to win, but destroy the O’Tea Party forever.

Ok, Hannity O’Tea Partiers: so you were secretly prepared and yes, you overran Poland, and yes, you then went on to incorporate the Low Countries, Denmark and Norway, and even surprised France pushing their ally Britain into the water… But this time, you went too far.. You’ve taken on the United States. You’ve pissed off someone five times your size. We will Normandize you, Elbetize you, Dresdenize you, give you a Kolnectomy, Rhineantipuovertize you, Remagenisque you, and even liposuctionize your Battle of the Bulge. We will Pattontize you, Bradleydice you, and Marshall you into a corner from where you can’t maneuver.. We will take average civilians and turn them into a fighting force the world has never seen…

We will do so for the honor of America.

What kind of an America? An America where truth wins out, where decency prevails, where honesty and hard work eventually win out over trickery, skulduggery, and political assassination. You wanted to play dirty? We’ll show you how it’s done… In doing so we will show the world that modernism prevails, that decent people still run America. that the “Boehner Bullshit” is just that. It’s time to show the world what we’ve known all along.. That in America, it’s the people who run politics..Not the Politics who run the people…..

I’d tell every Delawarean… Do yourself a favor… Turn off your TV’s.. You got a question? Call me or my staff directly! We’ll talk to you… try talking back to their commercials! Where will that get you?

That stuff they’re airing? That’s not Delaware talking, That’s California money talking… That’s rich bitch snitch drug money being laundried to throw a Senate seat into supporting their snatching up of all your money… You want to keep some of your money? Call me. Call my staff… That’s Delaware talking.

Do you want reason to take on ins’hannity?

Well, it’s on. Support me. You can’t let the devil win… ”

Well anyway, if I were Castle, that’s exactly what I’d do. And I would do it selflessly, not to win, but to give Delawarean another alternative between a Democrat and our equivalent of the brown shirts of the Nazi Party.

Yes, if there is still good left in America, then Castle needs to run.
If the doesn’t, then the America that came back after Pearl Harbor……. is gone.

Catholic hospitals Saturday rallied behind President Barack Obama’s health care bill ahead of a House vote in which anti-abortion lawmakers could play a decisive role.

The chief executive of the Catholic Health Association, Carol Keehan, wrote on the group’s Web site that although the legislation isn’t perfect, it represents a “major first step” toward covering all Americans and would make “great improvements” for millions of people.

And the freaks are scared…

I was shocked when it was brought to my attention, really. This is a rather eventful pivot point.

The Catholic Church, through this venue, has decided that more good, will come about from President Obama’s Healthcare Reform, than harm.. The Catholic Church. has come out in favor of Obama’s Healthcare Reform Plan…

Why?

Because it helps people. It helps people get well. It helps people stay well. It helps drop costs down so more people can be treated…

The compassion and hope that this bill provides is so great, that the Catholic Church is willing to look the other way on the abortion planks… That shows you just how good this bill is seen to be by the Catholic Church… Who in their lifetimes would think the Catholic Church would look the other way on abortion? But Obama’s healthcare reform bill is so good, so helpful, such a wonderful piece of legislation, that the Catholic Church simply cannot dismiss it.. In fact, the Catholic Church wants this bill to go through so badly, that it supports it, despite some qualms over abortion planks that may or may not be added…. Who would have ever thought they’d see the day!

If it is good for the Catholic Church, by default, it must be good for all Americans…. (You don’t have to sell me)… Since looking at facts, I’ve been saying that for little over a year now… But some people need selling, and now, this group of Catholic hospitals, has decided that better health care for all Americans, is indeed a worthy cause to get behind…

The current legislation would allow private insurance plans operating in a new insurance marketplace to cover abortions, provided they do not use taxpayer funds. What makes that tricky is that many of the plans’ customers would be receiving federal subsidies to help pay their premiums. So the legislation requires plans offering abortion coverage to collect a separate premium from their policyholders. Those separate checks would have to be kept in a different account from money for other health care services.

The radicals of the Right to Life movement, differ with the mainstream element of their church. Douglas Johnson, legislative director for National Right to Life, poo-poo’d the segregation of funds called for in the Senate bill as a bookkeeping trick. His group has bluffed it will count any vote for the House bill as support for taxpayer-funded abortion. “No Catholic hospital executive has ever turned out hundreds of volunteers to man the phone banks or walk the precincts for an endangered congressman or his challenger,” Johnson shrieked in response to the hospital group’s announcement.

I am grateful the Catholic Church is supporting Obama’s version of Healthcare Reform.

Now, if we can only get them to excommunicate all those Republicans who won’t support it….

After all, anyone who opposes legislation that represents a “major first step” toward covering all Americans and would make “great improvements” for millions of people, deserves to go to hell.

I was economizing till the end of the month, and was about to use the editorial page of the New Journal for substitute toilet paper, when I saw Ron Williams had digressed on Markell’s speech, which I “cliff noted” in the post below….

His take was ass backwards, archaic, and so old school, that it caused a cascade of thoughts that prompted me to put them down..

In essence, Ron Williams’ take proves that the union, building trades, developers, and old school Democrats, have past their prime…

It is fine to criticize positive thinking, especially if one can provide an better alternative..

Ron Williams can’t, and with that realization, comes the knowledge that the inevitable will come to pass.. A corner was turned with the cross registration that occurred last spring and the removal of John Carney from the Democratic top spot, has meant a sea change in leadership that is sweeping across this state…

The new blood that has matriculated into the Senate and our House, would be better advised to see the trends developing now, and shift their allegiance to the Markell factor, and distance themselves from the conglomerate of old Democratic supporters mentioned above… Because their can be no going back to the old Adams, DeLuca, Minner, Sharpe, McDowell, McCloskey, Roy contingent that dominated state politics for the first three quarters of this decade…

The world has changed… Ron Williams gives us proof in his entertainment piece…

He starts with the idea that Markell began his speech backward…

Of course a journalist always leads with the headline and fills the body with junk… so from that perspective, a backwards person looking at a well formed speech, just might think that the lead should be first, and fluff at the end…

However, those of us that really have to argue and convince others, for real, not just to look good in print, know that an argument is meticulously and creatively structured, so it convinces rationally and emotionally at the same time… Markell’s aim is to sell the CORE prosperity agenda as deliverable.. He does.

His 4000 words describe the need, the tools required, the solution, and the action required to deliver it.. That seems to be lost upon Ron Williams, which if he was reading the speech solely through the eyes of an extinct dinosaur, would be only looking for the parts that relate to his own self preservation…

He derides the eduction of 40 and 50 year olds who will lose their jobs soon.. Unfortunately, he fails to realize that he may soon join them… Who wants to read irrelevance anymore…

What is relevant is that people are losing jobs in the private sector. There is therefore too little money to pay for those in the public sector… Markell’s plan makes sense… If you can tweak it so some may pay less of a share because of their low income, and that is politically more acceptable than the offer that each will accept the same percentage, fine… Fairness is commodity that varies its value upon it’s perception. What one person perceives as fair, another may not. As long as a “fair” method is achieved to scale back the human cost to our state government, then that is the ultimate accomplishment has been achieved.

Since he has nothing substantial to offer, Ron Williams then asks questions… Questions that were asked in December, January, February, March, and April… and have already been answered ad nauseum by everyone else… Yawn…

Examples?

“So why not structure salary cuts based on income”… Because 8,000 hurts a 100,000 earner as hard as a $2320 cut hurts a $29,000 earner… At least the below poverty earner can use other sources to substantiate his income; food stamps, WICK, CHIP for example…. as well as earn EIC when his taxes come around… (I need to do the math.. It occurs to me that he could be better off…after all Federal benefits are added in)…

“and what about that 8 – 10 %…” It is the required amount to meet the $330 million target…

“What about a sales tax?” What good will Delaware shopping be with a sales tax on large purchases? Out of state consumers, why drive here at all? Implementing a sales tax will cause gross sales to decline and taxes on decreased incomes because of those decreased sales will subsequently decrease, aggravating our problems, not solving them..

And of course, the defeatist comes out in the gambling piece… His second to last paragraph can essentially be summed up as this.. Despite both a primary and a general election, this state is really run by the gambling consortium and Markell has no power against them…

Had that mentality existed in the early days of the union movement, when all odds were stacked behind Pinkerton’s men, then today, there would not even be union members reading his column in the paper…

As it is, somewhere in the New Castle County sewer system, his words, and his picture, are currently drifting along with their appropriate company….

Kilroy Nails it Good   This is exactly what it is all about….

So How Do We Step It Up for the Third Bush Term?

People on crack lie… John McCain and Sarah Palin are lying as we speak…

Is that enough evidence to link them to crackheads?

People on crack are inclusive… Sarah Palin when creating Alaska’s budget, did so secretly only in the presence of her husband and budget director…  Now that’s inclusive..

Is that enough evidence to link them to crackheads?

People on crack make up stories..  The McCain camp made up that Obama called Sarah Palin a pig…  He didn’t… It was McCain himself who used the term….

Is that enough evidence to link them to crackheads?

Crackheads change truth when it does not suit them…. The McCain camp is portraying Sarah Palin as an anti lobbyist government reformer… She isn’t… She spent Alaskian dollars on Washington Lobbying firms..  She spent Wasilla’s limited resources on lobbying firms…. She was gung-ho, whoop-de-doo for the boondoggle “Bridge for Nowhere” and came out against it only after the Federal Government made it clear she could spend the money earmarked for that bridge, anyway she chose….  Then she pretended she was against it…

Is that enough evidence to link them to crackheads?

People on crack, twist reality into exaggerated half truths designed to shock and awe….  The McCain camp accused Obama of pushing sex education in kindergarten…..   when in fact, the program was to warn children of child molesting predators….  a good thing.

Is that enough evidence to link them to crackheads?

People on crack make believe others say something different than they really said….   The McCain camp slurred Obama being slammed by Fact Check.Com, causing Fact Check. Com to issue a warning about McCain using them irresponsibly….

Is that enough evidence to link them to crackheads?

Crackheads think nothing of pimping out their family members… We won’t even mention what happened at the Bike rally at Sturgis, South Dakota… with the beautiful Cindy McCain…..

Is that enough evidence to link them to crackheads?

Crackheads are prone to rash actions… When a builder complained to Wasilla’s mayor, that the city attorney was too picky, actually applying code to what he was building… Sarah fired the attorney….

Is that enough evidence to link them to crackheads?

(Loyal readers no doubt will by now, realize something great is about to be sprung…… Those still new to this blog are no doubt, swallowing this argument hook, line and sinker, like a steelhead trout about to be landed on Todd Palin’s pontoon plane…)

Alright, it’s time… Of course they aren’t…

But what I’ve done is use the Republican’s strategy against themselves..

Nothing above is untrue, but the linkage and the clever wording, is beginning to make you wonder whether perhaps they are on crack.  Actually you can’t help it;  based on the actions stemming from the campaign… I mean after all, look at the Republican Interior Department scandal breaking today…

This is what the McCain campaign is doing… Using half truths, repeated twenty-four hours and linked to unsavory characterizations, and building a controversy that simply has no gas to go anywhere…  It makes news for one day, then he throws out another tidbit….

That is politics.. It is also the behavior of a crack addict… So which of the two are he and Sarah?  He is not the same McCain who ran in 2000, and got plastered in South Carolina by rumors the he, the candidate, had a black baby born our to wedlock….  In Bob Jone’s country, that allegation was the kiss of death…  So is John just playing nasty,… or is his brain chemically imbalanced?

From this point it is hard to tell..  On the one hand, we don’t want to believe it so we dismiss it as coincidence….  “It’s McCain, man”, his supporters say… “He can’t be on crack!”…. But what do you do when all the evidence points to the contrary… There are the tell tale signs of a polar change in behavior, of a complete disregard for the importance of truth, of saying bizarre comments to garnish attention, all of which circumstantially point to crack as the culprit….

Those moments of memory lapses?  You thought it was old age?  Guess again.  Those sultry slips of the tongue,  you thought it was simple fatigue?  Guess again…

Whoops there I go again….(Disclaimer) Of course you know that this was fabricated… It was set upon you just as was the material the McCain camp has handed out about its opponent…

And just like the stuff about his opponent, you, yes you, are starting to wonder if he is not on crack, then perhaps he IS on some type of prescription medication, or Rush Limbaugh painkillers, that cause reality to take a back seat to being the center of attention….

After all, he is getting up there…  how many 72 year olds do you know who are NOT on some type of blood thinner, diabetes or other medication that makes one a little light headed, as well as somewhat fuzzy about the facts…

Can we trust someone in this capacity to handle the power of the greatest superpower this world has ever seen?  Can we trust someone in this capacity to push the right button ( No, Mr. President, Not the RED button) to call for room service instead of a pre-emptive strike?  Can we trust someone this loose with the facts, to trim our budget and not continue to inflate government spending even further out of control? Can we trust those who act like this during a campaign, to behave once they are in office?

Most crackheads would tell you flat out:  “hell no.”  🙂

Since they are about as credible as the National Republican Party these days, perhaps we should listen to them…..

lol

According to my source, we have received twenty seven mailings from the Markell camp and only twenty five from John Carney.

…Will keep you posted….
