None of these should get into office.  None.

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

Presidential politics is too early to contemplate… But what is worth our attention is today’s fight over the playing field.. As in….which stadium will the game be played? Then follows: what are the extenuating factors that could affect the game for either team if played in that location?…

In football, it translates:  Phoenix? or Lambaugh Field?  One favors one climate of teams, the other,… another…

This has turned into an interesting campaign, this battle for the playing field….. There are 30 candidates from the two major parties now campaigning….

29 are saying nothing about raising taxes on the top 1%…. One is.

29 are saying nothing about stopping global warming cold…. One is.

29 are not talking about the hardships everyone making less than $250,000 is experiencing… . One is.

29 are not talking about increasing the power of labor unions and getting rid of anti-strike legislation…. One is.

29 are not talking about getting huge,gigantic money out of politics…. One is.

29 are not talking about a fair and humane immigration policy….. One is.

29 are not talking about increasing the rights of minorities and have some equality of justice…. One is.

29 are not talking about growing government to provide large numbers of decent jobs…. One is.

29 are not talking about having a living wage become our minimum…. One is

29 are not talking about sending any child to college for free….. One is.

29 are not talking about setting stronger limits on Wall Street…. One is…

29 are not talking about women’s rights as fellow human beings….  One is.

This is the “playing field war”… And the media is completely complicit in not addressing this.. That is why it has to come from outside America’s media to report real news, that is, what is really happening….

Either we play this election out on values…. as in which direction should America go? As in where do we want America to be in 8 years?    Or we play this out as a freaking cat fight…

The media is ginning for the cat fight… and If no one listens they can gin all they want… Just like when you go to a party and all the nerds get together and leave you alone.  The party goes on and in the real events of who hooks up with whom, the nerd conversations in the side-rooms don’t matter.  Who cares who is the greatest Dragonball Z character ever?.. How many were there??  O-v-e-r-…….. Nine…… Thousand??

But if we don’t pay attention and don’t call out our media… (it’s hard for them to refrain, just look at Allan Loudell who of all people is savvy enough to realize the pettiness of cat fights this early on, but still as a reporter, can’t help but to report that way out of habit)… then ignoring the real issue is what we are going to get…

Instead of spending all day talking about Joe Biden’s upcoming run, (will he or will he not?),  most would rather hear that the 7 person Wal*mart family brings in more income than the entire bottom 30% of America combined..(90 million people). Instead of discussing the wisdom of taxing them half that amount, and using that half each year to better America, which creates high paying jobs, we get threats against Hispanic children.

Instead of spending all day strategizing about the 29 candidates who are all the same, most Americans would rather here how much it would cost to wipe out student debt, so they could put that money to their lives…

Instead of spending all day whining about Don Trump not talking to anyone and drying up the entire American newsfeed,, most Americans would rather hear how much money they would be earning now had Al Gore won, and no Bush tax cuts occurred… ($10,000 per year is average…. )

Polling question:  does anyone out there wish they were making$10,000 a year more, or are you happy where you are..?

In his later years, a biographer of George W. Bush, after seeing the wasteland the Republcans created in the middle class in just 8 years, admitted his part in framing the 2000 election as the question of: “who would you rather drink a beer with?”

Remember that?  It went on weeks and weeks and weeks..

He ended with:  “I wish we’d analyzed what Cheney was really like, or what cutting $200 billion a year in taxes would do to the deficit and eventually break the economy. ”

Well our media is at it again… Analyzing who’s ahead; who’s behind. Who’s on the rail; who’s on the outside.

Based on today’s media, the playing field looks like it is going to be in the land of inconsequence.  Where politicians will rise and fall on the style of their hair…

You need to make sure on your social media  that you start lampooning (with hashtag) major media every time they focus on the inane, and ignore the profound…

Truth is:  we’re America.

We can slow and stop global warming.

We can provide free college tuition to all those who go to college.

We can rebuild every bridge in this country within ten years.

We can clean every river so fish can return.

We can raise the minimum wage and everyone else’s wage too.

We can  pay for solar panels on everyone’s roof so they can have most of their electricity for free.

We can mandate an 11:1 student teacher ratio in grades k-5 and 9th, and staff them.

We can get rid of standardized testing in grades 3-8.

We can afford free health care to all in this country.

We can allow unlimited $$ of produce to be bought by SNAP card holders.

We can hire 100 Accountants at $100,000 each to look over the books of the three big banks.

We can make oil a non speculative commodity.  Only transportation companies can be in on them.

———

After all expenses have been paid…. America has over $2 trillion dollars left over every 65 days… it’s called corporate profits….

We can put every person willing to work at a job.  None of these are hard… It just takes money now held by the wealthy to do it…

OH, THERE YOU GO AGAIN… TAKING MONEY AWAY FROM THE RICH… SOCIALISM…

That depends on how you define socialism.  I’m just trying to get back to Reagan’s economy.. If you think he was a socialist, I’ll have to call you out on that,… He was nothing near a socialist…

But his tax cut dropped the top marginal rate down to 50%….  just raising it back to that level and hiring hard working Americans with that new incoming money, is the dumbest definition of Socialism you could ever come up with….

And one more thing… All that money that the one percent is putting into their pockets?    That used to go to you…. $10,000 more each year, used to come to you…

Just as audience consideration is a factor in deciding where to play the Super Bowl…. so it is when it comes down to where this election will be held…   You can call up your tv and radio stations and say… Hey… talk more about Bernie Sanders.  I really want to know about him……..
