This is going to my hard core Republican friends. Why are you still supporting Romney?

1) You know he is not going to win.
2) You know as the election heats up, his Bain Capital experience will make Republicans untouchable for decades.
3) You can’t pin down where Romney stands on anything.
4) He tied his dog to a car.
5) He stands with black people and says “Who let the dogs out, woof, woof.”

Most of you are telling me, “I certainly can’t vote for Obama. I guess I’m not voting for President this time.”

Let’s say, just for argument sakes there was a presidential candidate out there who says to have good government you need: …………………

1. Become reality driven. Don’t kid yourself or others.
Find out what’s what and base your decisions and actions
on that.

2. Always be honest and tell the truth. It’s extremely
difficult to do any damage to anybody when you are
willing to tell the truth–regardless of the
consequences.

3. Always do what’s right and fair. Remember, the more
you actually accomplish, the louder your critics become.
You’ve got to learn to ignore your critics. You’ve got to
continue to do what you think is right. You’ve got to
maintain your integrity.

4. Determine your goal, develop a plan to reach that
goal, and then act. Don’t procrastinate.

5. Make sure everybody who ought to know what you’re
doing knows what you’re doing. Communicate.

6. Don’t hesitate to deliver bad news. There is always
time to salvage things. There is always time to fix
things. Henry Kissinger said that anything that can be
revealed eventually should be revealed immediately.

7. Last, be willing to do whatever it takes to get your
job done. If you’ve got a job that you don’t love enough
to do what it takes to get your job done, then quit and
get one that you do love, and then make a difference.

Honesty. Integrity. Principal.

Sounds good so far. Let us say just for argument, he had chief executive experience. Let us say just or argument that he once ran a state, one of the fifty in this union. Let us say while governor, this is what he did…..

During his tenure, New Mexico experienced the longest period without a tax-increase in the state’s entire history.

1) He cut the rate of government growth in half,

2) Left the New Mexico state government with a budget surplus and 1000 fewer employees (without firing anyone),

3) Privatized half of the prisons in the state,

4) Brought a state-wide school voucher system to New Mexico.

5) Vetoed 750 bills (more than all the vetoes of the other 49 Governors in the country at that time, combined) with only 2 overrides, earning him the nickname Gary “Veto” Johnson.

6) In 1999, Johnson became the highest-ranking elected official in the United States to advocate the legalization of drugs.

7) Shifted Medicaid to managed care.

ISN’T THAT WHAT YOU WANT? ISN’T THAT WHAT WE NEED?

Can you not think of a better way to show your lack of enthusiasm over a wealthy capitalist buying his way to the top of your ticket, by voting for someone who has character, who does what you’ve always wanted, a doer, not a talker?

And to think…. you were simply just going to throw your vote away.

His name is Gary Johnson. He is the new party’s candidate for President.

Remember Republicans. It is your values that are important. If your party has given up and moved on from your values, don’t think you have to be loyal to the word…. “Republican”… What you have to be loyal too, is yourself. Always. Never lie to yourself.

You don’t need to waste your vote on Romney. You probably need to find more about this guy, Gary Johnson, and then throw your support behind him.

Don’t worry it is not one of the two parties on whose ticket he is running. Remember, at one point in time, the Republican Party was a once a third party too. One that went mainstream because of its core values, its principles resonated with everyday American People.

So, can someone tell me again, why we shouldn’t tax the rich, and instead, balance the budget on the backs of everyone else?…….

I seem to be missing that little detail where that all makes sense……

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…

It should be an interesting fight.

The city of Newark has been trying to do it’s part in controlling misbehavior that occurs after drinking.

Townspeople have railed at them for not getting University of Delaware students to behave, and so they instituted a policy that holds business owners responsible, when and if they are deemed to run a disreputable business.

Although that may sound good to people who hate fun and drinking, it may not bode well for businesses considering setting up an establishment in Newark.

“Good”, some Council members say: “we don’t want their kind here anyway”. And they may have a couple of residents who will back them up… After all, Grotto’s belongs at the beach. Get rid of it on Main Street; they serve beer… Let’s get rid of all the Grotto’s while we’re at it! No one likes their pizza anyway.

Unbeknown to every Newark business, this law is in the books of Newark’s code.

It shall be unlawful for any person to allow, suffer or permit in any house or upon any premises occupied by himself, any profane, obscene or vulgar language or conduct, or any fighting, quarreling or affray, or any loud or unusual noises to the disturbance of the quiet and good order of the city.

For residents who are tired of loud behavior, that is a breath of fresh air. Now, they may finally get relief from those college students peeing in their bushes…

However, for a business, there is no set level that must take effect, before the implementation of the following penalties. It’s as if your boot camp drill instructor stood you at attention and told you that if you moved in the slightest, he/she would slam you with a baseball bat… With no parameters set, no time limit given, eventually you shuffle, and BAM, right into the back of your medulla….

Last Wednesday, at an well known established on Main Street, two girls got into a bitch yip. They were quickly ushered out of the building by management and employees. Calm was restored. But some random person called the police, who arrived after the incident was over. They arrested the two girls who were still hanging around outside, and then came in, handcuffed the assistant manager, and took them all to the police station, where they charged the girls with disorderly conduct, and the manager for running a disreputable business… Grottos… a disreputable business?… Has everyone on Newark’s council lost their mind?

A business is open to the public. A business can’t be responsible for every individual. No matter how much they try, they can’t be! They CAN be responsible for having systems in place, ones that that can be initiated if and when such a random unforeseen acts were to occur… But in this case, through a random system of events, an assistant manager is now going to have to pay at least 10% of his yearly income, hopefully put up by his company, to fight these charges. 10% of his income… His crime? He was scheduled to work that night… That’s it…

Or let’s put this irrationality in in a different way: it’s a given that Newark’s police are charged with policing the town. It’s also a given that City Council is the party responsible for all the laws made by the town. Check out this law.

302.9.2 Property Owner Responsibility. It shall be the responsibility of the owner of property damaged by graffiti to restore said surface to an approved state of maintenance and repair, including the removal of graffiti.

302.9.3 Notice. Notice shall be as specified in this chapter. Notice to remove graffiti shall specify that it is unlawful for the owner or anyone who has primary responsibility for control of the property, or for maintenance or repair of the property, to permit property that is defaced with graffiti to remain defaced beyond a period of 10 days after service of notice as specified in this chapter.

Currently there is graffiti on property owned by the City of Newark.. The person ultimately responsible for that property, would be the acting manager, which in this case would be the mayor, and members of the City Council. They are the elected officials held accountable for the running of the city. As we can see, here is evidence that they broke the above statute by allowing a single individual to deface their property.

Under the same principals which they are applying to the business which silenced a girl spat, they, the mayor and council, as well as the police chief just for good measure, should be arrested by the citizens of Newark, and charged for violating these clauses listed above.. They too should get an arrest record, they too should be personally assessed court costs and lawyers fees, and they too, should suffer economic hardship, just because they happened to be he mayor and council at that time of the spray painting….

LAUGHABLE? EXACTLY!

If Newark is going to hold businesses accountable for every little detail written in code, then they need to hold themselves accountable as well. They too need to be arrested, because some individual over which they had no control, did not know how to behave…

“They ( mayor and council)… should have prevented it”, the towns people say… “Throw the mayor and council in jail”..

Bottom line, this type of adherence to the law is stupid. The municipal code needs to be modified before a conglomeration of businesses start filing suit against every police officer, every desk supervisor, every chief of police, every council member and even the mayor. They are open to personal suit, because the business from which the manager was arrested, actually did what the law implied. They stopped the fighting, shut it down, before anything serious happened… One would think from the reading of the law, that is how they would abide by it in that given situation. But no….

Now some random employee, will have to go to court, and if the judge is not reasonable, (which has been known to happen in small towns), he could forever have the stigma of a misguided police force, attached to his name…

The stupidity is not in the intent… The stupidity is the the implementation… There is no filter.

If what’s good for the goose is good for the gander… throw these elected bums into jail……
