Delaware’s Unions, particularly the Building and Trades, have over-stepped.  In a world where the one percent owns 45% of America’s assets, where billions are being spent to destroy unions in every capacity, where the middle class has succumbed to its worst level since 1880, the rat-demon that the Building and Trades chose to blacken, was Delaware’s biggest friend of labor, John Kowalko.

There is something very sick in Delaware’s unions…  That this was ever allowed shows complicity with the 1%.

The only people hurt by not putting the power plant inside the University of Delaware, were those investors who spent $800,000 and got nothing.  It would be safe to say none of them were of the 99%.   When something else goes in, those jobs will be there as well.  Labor did not lose one job…

Instead, we just got further proof that in Delaware, labor has been coerced, infiltrated, and is being run by the 1%… No normal working man would want to poison 30,000 people into cancer by his efforts.  We all know the 1% have no qualms with killing people as long as they make over 5%…..

Organized labor is no longer working for its members.  Whether it is the DSEA, AFSCME, or the Building Trades, the lack of new jobs here in Delaware is due to only one thing.  Their coziness with those with money… the big 5 developers and their friend, the governor.

I know the details of why there is a history behind it this coziness.. But there was also a history behind Colonial America and Great Britain… But at some point a split had to occur.

When you have Quisling leaders telling their members that “yeah, they are doing everything they can”, and at the same time telling the Delaware Way that they “got their people handled”, it is their members who are getting royally screwed…..

It is past time to scrap old leaders.  It is past time for new aggressive leadership, someone in their 30’s..  It is time for work stoppages again.  It is time for muscle…  When you have our ex-heroes, “organized labor”, those who built the America we had (at least up through 2000),  attacking their most ardent legislative supporter in the General Assembly because he wouldn’t go along and maliciously kill 30,000 of his constituents with cancer, you have a corrupt and poorly lead organization…. They are not working for their members; they are working for Charlie Copeland!

I hereby pull my support for prevailing wage….  and urge John Kowalko and every legislator elected from the Greater Newark Area up through Hockessin to do so as well. … 

Until unions get new aggressive leadership who will daringly take on the Delaware Way and grind it up and crush it, forget it, I won’t reconsider.

It’s this upcoming 2014 one.. It sets the national stage on whether anything will get done for the next four years. The next president will be powerless to exercise the will of the majority, if the majority party of voters do not vote in their full capacity…

Especially for those under 30. Many of you have parents who are facing retirement and wondering how they will survive. Many of you have parents who are still benefiting of the legacy of your grandparents, who may have left their ample resources to them when they died…

The Grandparents benefited from the New Deal. Your parents were victims of the raw deal. The raw deal which said that if we became conservative, everything would be just rosy.. No details on how, it just would…

Your parents big battle was in 1980… Carter versus Reagan which was a battle not between two men, but over which group of men would get to chart the next 30 years… That thirty years corresponds to your parents from their 20’s to their 50’s…

The two groups of men were the same as the two who battled for dominance under George Washington and have been contentious ever since… The investors versus the People…. When you really benefit the people, you hurt the investors. When you benefit investors, you hurt people… We are currently in an investment-favor phase that began with the election of Reagan in 1980. There are times when both groups benefit accordingly, but moderately. But soon someone always battles to push their side into dominance, and due to the frailty of most politicians, it is usually the moneyed interests which attempt it first…

In your parent’s defense, they’d only seen the New Deal. To them, Reagonomics sounded new, bold, daring and inspired. Little did they think to look at the track record leading up to the New Deal to see how it would unfold. There WAS a reason the New Deal was enacted… Investors care little about people’s woes.

So probably right now, you are looking for work in your field. That field which you put your hard work and dreams into pursuing, only now to be employed waiting tables, or sloshing drinks, or calling up deadbeats in late hours hoping someone picks up the phones… What you are experiencing is the woe felt by countless people across history since the powerful first realized that life at the top is great, only if you suppress those underneath. While you suffer, their investments have made over 100% or more over the past 5 years…

This election is yours… This election settles for YOUR 30 years whether the investors get to keep control, or whether they finally can allow those programs to go forward which cost them money but at the benefit to millions of fellow citizens. Ironically, if America gets richer, they do to, but not as fast if if we give everything to them now…

If you don’t vote, or vote to keep the investors to continue blocking progress, you are setting yourself to 30 years of the same. It doesn’t have to be that way. Your grandparents chose Democrats and Franklin Roosevelt based solely on his promise to better their future with government programs, which the investors forced to foot the bill.

There was nothing wrong with that plan. At the time of Carter’s last years in office, the 1% held their least amount of national wealth EVER. Meaning of course it was split among everyone else… Coal Miners who before the formation of the Union, owed their souls to the company store, literally, were now buying RV’s and boats and taking their kids on vacations across the country… It’s all about who gets the money….

If you don’t vote, and investors win, this will never happen to you. But if you vote in force, and all of your generation, in every state, votes your frustration, you dreams, and your hope for the future, and put thier faith into the party that is there for the people, … then you will succeed over the next 30 years as did your grandparents.

Your grandparents who had nothing, are now sitting pretty. Your parents who had the best any generation has ever had, are now struggling… It was all in their choice of choosing who should lead, between the investors and the people..

The Republican party is there at the behest of the investors. The Democratic party is there for the people… Right now, a minority of investors is stymieing all progress for you and your fellow citizens. Only you can change that…

It’s your grandparents choices versus your parent’s choices…. but it is .. your choice.

Because son, in this world, if you don’t make your own decisions,… someone else will make them for you…..

 

The following candidates support We, The People, and not Corporate America, being the ones to make our own decisions for our own kids…..

 

John Young —  Christina School District

Michael J. Piccio —  Red Clay School District

Melodie Spotts —  Colonial School District

 

Hmmm…  There is no clearer way to have put that…..

 

Turtle Eyes

 

This kind…

Doesn’t he have an election coming up soon?  If so, how can anyone expect to make a credible run for Attorney General IN THIS STATE, AFTER BEAU BIDEN’S TERM,  and be guilty of keeping a tiny little bill, which has no harm but opens all board meetings to being recorded and accessible on line?

Only Simon Barsinister could be against something so inane… Or…. Hmmmmm…. Somebody … With… Something…. To …. Hide….

Three lines of simple code: All boards of education of public school districts, vocational-technical high school districts, and all boards of directors of charter schools shall digitally record all of their public meetings and shall make the recordings available to the public on the districts’ or charter schools’ websites within seven (7) business days of each meeting.  These recordings are not official board minutes, but are a means to enhance communication to the public and to State legislators.…….

Hmmm.  Now… Why would the surprise future attorney general, be sooooo adamant, even to the point of losing an election over blocking legislation so inane, that all it does is open school boards of all things, open to the public as a service… Anyone can walk into a school board and hear exactly the same thing they’d hear on tape… But sometimes… a diaper needs changed.  But sometimes, a family meal needs prepared.   Sometimes extra work for the office must be done for deadline the next day…. Darn we say now….I guess we won’t get to know what happened…

So why?  Why is HB 23 being put on ice as my compatriot Kilroy is found of saying.  Who is soooooo scared someone will find out what is really going on in school board meetings?  Is it Charlie Copeland?   Is it Mark Murphy?  Is it… Darryl Scott?   Is it Pete Schwartzkoph?

Hmmm.  I wonder if it has any sponsors in the General Assembly right now?

HOLY MOLY!!!!!!  LOOK AT THIS!!!   Sponsors:  Hudson, Sen. Peterson, Reps. Dukes, D. Short, Miro, Peterman, Wilson, Baumbach, Bennett, Mitchell, K. Williams; Sens. Hocker, Lavelle, Simpson, Townsend….

Is Pete Schwartzkoph there?….. No…… Is Bryon Short there?  ….. No……  Is Melanie George Smith there?….. No……  Is Valarie Longhurst there?……. No…… Is Darryl Scott there?  … No….Is Earl Jacques there?…… No  Is Patty Blevins there? …… No……  Is Quentin Johnson there? …. No….   is John Viola there?…… No….  Is Ernie Lopez there?….. No?

Hmmmmmm…   What do those all have in common…… 🙂   Hmmmmmmmmmmmm….  Do they all drink their coconut milk imbibed with lime?  …. No…..   Do they all call each other up and wear the same color of underwear each daily session?…… No……  Ummm.   Do they all have the same Delaware extension tatoo’d to their buttocks?….. Ummmm…..M a y… b e…….

It is someone with a lot to hide; that is for sure…  And it is nobody from here:

Red Clay, Christina, Capital, Delmar, Brandywine and Colonial currently already voluntarily record their board meetings! As well as the Delaware State Board of Education records their meetings!

So why is this something that has to be kept secret, and never brought to pass?….. Because we are not talking about individuals  VOTING on a bill…They could vote YEA or NEA and it wouldn’t matter!  What concerns us and you, is the pure morality of  KEEPING A BILL FROM BEING VOTED FOR YOU BECAUSE IT WILL PASS….

So according to its sponsor, Deborah Hudson,  Matt Denn is sitting on this bill….  He is doing it to protect someone else, to whom perhaps he is loyal….  How seriously then, were a procedural crime to be committed requiring a judicial investigation, can he be trusted to dig and search for the truth instead of whitewashing the whole affair to protect this same someone, when he can’t even be trusted to get a vote for heaven’s sakes….on  a voice recording of  school board meetings,  out on to the floor for a vote?   Let that sink in for a second….  Really?

Put all else aside…..  Really?

IS that really the kind of attorney general we want after Beau Biden….  a crony?

Really?  He’s going to throw his whole career away …. on that?

Really?  Why would he do that?   But it is definite a campaign issue, like blocking the GW bridge, one that resonates and will stick, because EVERY parent has a child in school….Whether they would ever listen themselves or not, this concerns them now… They too will question:  why is Matt Denn, who is running for Attorney General, trying so hard to keep information regarding my kid and his friends, from ever being made public??? Hmmmmm….

Seriously, this blemishes his entire pro-family  image he developed while serving as our insurance commissioner.  This makes him one of the snakes…..  with those evil eyes…..

One of my nightly escapades found me in a local Delaware Bar…   I was brought here because the clientèle is political savvy even though most are not into politics… There this happened.

Bartender:  “Attention everyone we are doing a spontaneous survey and afterwards when I tell you you can all down your drink.”..

Grumbling turns to mumbling which turns to silence…

Bartender:   “Are you ready?  First question…. How many of you out there believe everything you hear on Fox News.”….

(no one raised their hands, though talk afterwards said one did obviously for a joke and quickly put it down)

Bartender:   “Ok, 2nd question… There will be 6…. 2nd question:   How many of you believe everything you see on ABC news.”..

(no one raised their hands…)

Bartender  “Ok, 3rd question:  How many of you believe everything you see on CBS?”

(no one raised their hands)

Bartender:  “Ok, Number 4.  How many of you believe everything you see on CNN…..?’

(no one raised their hands)

Bartender:  “Ok everyone only 2 more and we can get back to drinking… How many of you  believe everything you see on…. ESPN!

(Laughter, exclamations,  hands up, probably close to half… almost all male)

Bartender:  “Better,  Ok… one more… How many of you believe everything you see on John Stewart’s Daily Show on Domedy Central?”

(Lots of laughter, cheers, and a unanimous hand raising… Some ESPN males raising both hands…. )

I came away from the experience thinking that America is indeed in good hands… The “Bullsh\t” is completely missing  the target….. The real stuff is getting through.

In what turns out to be nothing more than a get-rich-quick scheme, literally hundreds of thousands will die from this action…

The people of Newark have the last say; but only if they exercise it. If they do nothing, BIG BUSINESS always wins, because it can buy the political clout it needs. It can’t control you…..

Respond and contact those at the end of the video. Everyone needs to help here. 75 years of pollution is a long time… Almost one third as old as is the United States of America….

Our country is falling apart because in each locality, the best people are too shy or too busy or too embarrassed to run and to serve in public offices. We just bake more and more cookies. They are delicious, but I am pretty sure that they do not save our nation as quickly as running for and serving in public offices can.

Dear fellow members of the Human Race.

I speak to you now from the heart.  People are people.  Some have good souls and some do not.  You know as well as do I that no nation is composed of all of one type or all of the other… Each of our nations have both good and bad people in them.  With every choice of direction taken, we must analyze if either of our nations are making a correct or incorrect step…. In fact across every life, each person must daily battle over whether what they are doing, the course of action they are pursuing, is indeed the correct one they should be upon….

This is coming to you from the heart.  Your nation’s course of action is puzzling to me, to my nation, and to your fellow members of the human race now scattered across the planet.  Your nation has come so far since the 1992,  You are a highly respected member of the international community.  You recently awed us by your mastery in hosting the entire world at your Olympics in Sochi.

With all that behind you today it is puzzling that your nation is embarking on a course of action that negates all that.  One that makes you appear to be less of a great power in this world.  Instead of greatness one would expect from  the pageantry of Sochi, the very nation that beget Tchaikovsky and Tolstoy,  we are getting the behavior of a warlord existing in a land in which there is no law and there is no order.

Among our species, there will always be disputes.  There will always be disagreements between nations for as long as there will be disagreements between individual people. But civilized people have forged a means that deal with such.  We have institutions that we respect and that we trust will not side with either one or another solely because of personal favoritism, but decide what they do, because they honestly think their decision will make the world a better place.  For one to take a course of action because one has a superiority of force, is not conducive to a better future for anyone.

For it will cause my side to react.  It will cause your government to  react to our reaction.  It will cause us to react to that new threat imposed on us by your reaction to what we did…. in all regards, further continence on the current path will be a step backwards for the world community, and for the entire species of man… It will be a return to the Cold War Days, where as one of your diplomats stated, “our tanks are again on your front lawn.”   I hope you can see that if your nation’s current threat of force is continued, and that if this old retired idea that taking sovereignty from other nations were again to become the norm of Russia’s international behavior, then our nation and allies will have no recourse but to implant ourselves on the soil of those nations bordering next to your great country, for only the sole purpose to keep each of them from becoming the next Crimea.

This will of course intensify an arms race for both our nations.  A race of resources that will have great negative economic consequences for your country, as well as ours.  We are prepared and capable of undergoing it again, and you the Russian people should not doubt, that based on a comparison of our two economies, all global experts predict our side will win, again.

I hereby ask you to challenge your ruler, who seems bent on pursuing this destructive action.  And one can make no mistake that it parallels a course our nation chose a decade ago when we wrongly under the guise of protecting our national interests, did something similar. However there are vast differences between our past, and this present.  We tried diplomacy first; we used the UN weapons’ inspectors; we took our case before our own people, then to the United Nations, and from both we got a consensus of support.  Unlike us, your nation just moved in.

To your nation’s credit, there has not yet been violence. You have acted far more civilized than did ours.  There is still time for your nation to chose to return to the previous status quo of two weeks ago, then make your case to the UN, the US, and the EU.  As is all diplomacy among civilized human beings, nothing will be dismissed out of hand.

You are a great nation. one that has come far.  I ask the Russian people to consider whether going backwards in time, returning again to a Cold War, is truly the best option available to your nation… Isn’t cooperation, as was seen in the Olympic games held on Russian soil, a far more productive, a far more fruitful enterprise of action, than exerting one’s will through military occupation?

The stakes are not high.  Yet your leaders hold them much higher and stress them far more important than most others think they seem to be.  We simply ask that your nation returns to your rightful bases; that the referendum is postponed and allowed to be done properly with adequate international observation solely to provide credibility to its results.  Our intelligence tells us the outcome is not in question; the numbers seem to be in your favor.  However by rushing the referendum and having it take place in occupied territory, certainly will cast a shadow over many decades to come, of whether or not those results were indeed legitimate.  As Russian people you should have no fear of legitimacy..  You have spawned many new nations since 1992, because those people chose through elections to be independent from Russia.  It would certainly be fair in the eyes of the international community, if a nation or part of one, wanted to come back in…

But there needs to be legitimacy.  It needs to be done in a certain way, under certain guiding principles, with the approval of the global community…   Being wrong in the international community’s eyes is a costly endeavor; one of wasted investment.  Again, many in the world community likewise disapproved of my nation, the United States’ military intervention into the Mideast now over a decade ago. Many Russian people were among them…   I ask you now, speaking from the heart, if it was wrong for us, and it was, why would it not be wrong for Russia to do exactly the same thing?

There are many commonalities between the Russian people and those of the United States of America.  We both have children, and grandchildren.  We both want what is best for them probably more than we care about ourselves…  The collision course our two nations are headed towards now, is not good for either of our progeny, no matter where they call home….

We have no quarrel with where Crimea itself wishes to end up.  My only concern is how that gets determined, and whether I have to expend expensive resources to make sure that no other nation with a border touching Russia, ever has to worry about the same thing happening to them…  Western Europe is thriving and prosperous today, because of actions that the US took 70 years ago.  Indeed our investment back then has paid off handsomely.  We are prepared to do it again if we must.  However our doing so, does not help your children or our children, have the better future which they could have, if our two nations were to always work within the structure and framework provided by, for and to the global community, in order to achieve our interests and build to better future…

I ask all Russian people to make their will known, that they as we suspect, would also prefer a peaceful world, a civilized world, a world whose future is based on the best intentions of mankind, to one day hand over to both our children…

There is still time for Russia to act magnanimously; if there is the Will. …By the grace of the God present in us all on either continent, we pray for the sake of the civilized future of both our nations, that deep within every Russian, that Will is still there….

Party Membership Senate Party Membership House

We hear about a divided America.  But look at our at-large candidates in the Senate.  Fairly even after all.

Next look at the House, where districts are gerrymandered.  In this case it was done by the Republicans in 2010. ….  We don’t really have a divided country.  We have a country arbitrarily divided.

Excuse Me! Can We Get Some Respect For Some Who’s Free Speech Was Truly Taken Away?

So a millionaire gets kicked off a reality show only ever seen by  3.8% of Americans….

Meanwhile, no one even thinks, discusses, or cries for these 5 at all…

Our national priorities are entirely misplaced…. 

Each one of those 5 is a 100 times a bigger hero in any true American’s book, over what anyone on television can hope ever to be….  I can only imagine what was racing through all 5’s heads at that moment they faced their common threat together…. 

Ain’t that America..”

God,…  bless them…
