The educational department of the University of Delaware is ranked 31st in the nation... That is at least out of 5000 accredited teaching schools…

Not only that, they are 31st in the top ranked educational teacher training country in the entire world… Apparently there is no educational crises in America when it comes to teachers receiving top notch training.

Overall, the top 10 countries in rank order are the United States, Sweden, Switzerland, Canada, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Australia, Singapore and the United Kingdom….

What just passed last Thursday in Delaware, now requires the University of Delaware, again now ranked 31st in the top educator nation in the world, 🙂 to be judged solely on how its teachers administer Common Core when they go out into the field…

Common Core?

Just how good is this Common Core we are talking about?

One would think someone in Legislative Hall would have at least looked into Common Core before mandating that the 31st best teaching institution in the best ranked nation for turning out good teachers, would have to be judged on its effectiveness by the results of a program everyone is having so much trouble with.

Progressives are against it. Tea Party Advocates are against it. Democrats are against it. Republicans are against it.. Red States are against it. Blue States are against it. How could this be? Could it be possible they all have children?

In fact, it appears there is no one who is in favor of common core, across this entire great nation we are so fortunate to live in… No one except 59 Delaware legislators, who apparently didn’t get the memo…..

Jump out squads are the new topic.  What a dumb name.   I glad Mayor Williams is distancing himself from such.  It is funny how names get formed.  I think it was Mayor Baker or Sills whose press agent when pressed, was the person who named them such?  It may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but a better name would be something that is less aggressive.

Of course sounding tough as an intimidating factor always makes one feel big.  But it also acts in a different way.  It imposes upon a community their powerlessness.  First against the criminals, Then against the justice system.

Both Williams and the Police Chief know this!.

A city’s police force is there as part of the city residents life experience, and their job is to protect the good of which they are apart and diminish the power of the bad, the criminal element.

A better name would be something like:  “Citizen’s Response Team”.  For after all, they are there  only at the behest of citizens who want their neighborhoods to be safe.  Let the criminal elements call them “jump out squads”;…  let that be the word on the streets.  But officially, a name that conveys the idea that the police are just an extension of society at large, they are there to do what society wants, is far more appropriate in this case than one of surprise and intimidation.

Neighborhood society has no problem with these individuals involved.  Most grew up there; they’ve known them since they were little kids. The problem is crime, and every individual in a neighborhood has a choice on whether they want to side with crime, or side with stopping it….

The election on September 11th, I think emphatically gave a mandate that a very large majority of Wilmington sides with those forces stopping it.

Now there is something every citizen can do….

I messed up.  As I pulled of the side street and onto the main street, a parked car held me up, It was some type of SUV with New Jersey plates.  Leaning into its passenger window, was a big black dude, scruffy beard, Army issued overcoat, black pants, who as I pulled up, backed away, and as the car pulled off, the crossed the street in front of me….

If I’d been thinking, I could have pulled my phone, looked like I was talking or texting (as do 99% of Delawareans when they are behind the wheel anyways), and clicked a picture of the car complete with plates and the guy doing the drop.

I could have then sent that to police.

Police later show up at the house of the car’s owner,  Ask what they were doing at that location.  Who was in their window?  Then monitor any call going out from that house that says:  “Dude, you better be careful…someone’s on to you… Really man?  What did they say?”

So, what if the police advertised a hotline or email address or account where anonymous picture of licensed plates of drug deals in progress, could be drop loaded?  How many citizens of Wilmington would love to turn in the street bully they’re deathly afraid of, but can’t because no system exists where the information is completely untraceable?

Why hasn’t this been thought of before?

Rule is:  these pictures can never be used as court evidence and be traceable.  They can only serve as probable cause, upon which all secondary evidence can then be admitable….

And it would cost nothing.

I just love right wing humor… It is so funny… Ha, ha,, .. stopping abortion with a gun… Hilarious… Can we have some more please…

Ma’am? After we’ve given you the abortion, we’re required by Republican law to take you out back and shoot you execution style. Good news, is that modern science gets to use both your body and the fetal tissue at the same time! How great it that? (slapping knee gasping for air)

Or how about this….

Ma’am? I’m Rick Perry, Uhhh, you just had an abortion, right? I’d like you to just stare at this little hole right here for a second…. see how perfectly round it is? Oops…. lol.. (sore ribcage hysterics)

Btw, if you support really good humor that makes fun of all blacks, women, Hispanics, Chinese, those with college degrees, federal employees, and encourages people to blow up courthouses in Oklahoma City, please patronize these radio stations right here in Delaware… We need more humor like this! I haven’t laughed so loud in hours… Ha, ha, ha… Require each one occur with a gun… What a wit…..

You can now hear Rush Limbaugh heap additional humorous insults on these Delawarean stations…..
