You may like him because he’s a nice guy.  But someone’s got to pay that money back, and you know it will be you…  Why would anyone double their debt?   It’s real money  you are giving up, and with no collateral….  Why would anyone go to the trouble of writing in someone who cost them $7.5 million and was about to do it twice?

Especially when you have a normal Sheriff who will save you money, as in Bob Lee……

It is very simple.  If one Republican supports segregation, and the Republican Party does not expunge him from its party, obviously the Head of The Republican Party then automatically inherits the problem and becomes culpable….  But there are two Republicans doing this.  And both are the principal movers of the entire Republican Party (if not name, then deed) of Sussex County.

The only outcry from the Republican Party has been a buried press release from the head here in New Castle County, which no one read…..

That can only mean the Republican Party secretly supports segregation….

Think about it.  You are with a group of people and one starts harassing someone outside your group.  They could be liberal, gay, effeminate, Hispanic, urban, whatever. It doesn’t matter.  But that someone in your group  goes off half-cocked and bullies them n public…

What do you do, sitting there holding your beer?  Do you come to that person’s defense?  “Hey, you can’t do that to them.  You need to leave us right now,  You don’t represent us! You sicken me.  In fact, I’m going to punch my fist right through your f’n head. Then when you’re down I’m going use my new cowboy boots to grind your head into tomato paste.”   (Because if you did,  The bullying would probably stop immediately, since you were becoming  the new threat.)

But probably not.  Most likely you are going to sit there, silent, pondering all your choices, and from the outside keep a stoic face so all around you, especially that person being verbally abused, will assume you are just part of the posse, going along with the sheriff doing the abusing…  If ever later questioned why you chose not to intervene, you will say  “I’m not prejudiced. I actually like “those people”.  I don’t have a part in this fight.  Of course I don’t agree with him, but I’m not going to get into a fist fight with someone I work with…. ”

And thus, through yours and your acquaintance’s  cowardice, you allow the abuse to continue.  Someone else another day, will feel the ire, and then someone else the day later, etc….  The real problem is allowed to continue. And we all know;  it is a real problem.

So when we all are held accountable, (as to why did you do nothing to stop it), despite whatever excuse we proffer it will become obvious to us that there was indeed another choice at that time which could have been made…. We could have done something….

That is why one press release read by nobody, is not enough.  Only one action and one action alone is strong enough to send the proper message that this behavior will NOT be tolerated.  That is to permanently ban Vince Phillips and Sam Wilson from any Republican Party affiliation.  That is to public excommunicate them from the Republican Party of Delaware… That is to issue a restraining order banning Vince Phillips and Sam Wilson from any function even remotely connected to the Republican Party of Delaware…..

IF the Republican Party does not take such drastic action…. they are culpable just as you or I would be if a friend of ours started demeaning a stranger in our presence.   WE WOULD BE GUILTY TOO…..

This is why, no… as in zero… self-respecting human being should donate, volunteer, or even vote for any Republican until the Republican Party has elicited some serious cost upon the perpetrators…  Considering the moral weakness previously exhibited by their current leader, I predict that will be highly unlikely….

I further predict that segregation against the “colored people”  will be continue to be openly practiced in Sussex County because it now has the unspoken  “protection” of the Republican Party.

Im gonna get me some of dem watermelonsIm gonna eat me some of Vances good ole watermelons

(Sung to the tune of the National Anthem…..)


Oh, say, can you see?

By the pale florescent light.

What once was so proudly was hailed,

As the reason for Sussex’s being…..


Whose broad girths and wide ties.

Led Conservative battles galore…

Illegal prayers and  hot sexed lies….

Made them more desire… a Conservator…..


As county sheriffs, with posse’s in arms…..

Or as popes whose morals were in great harm….

They kept the brown skinned down,

So only those who were white… could farm….


Oh say, doth… those… fallen… bigots,

From last century in rural Sussex’s Way……..

Represent the best, that Sussex can ever be-eee?

Or like the Georgetown hatchet?  Should be buried after election day……..







And The Verdit Is.........?

From the Allen Loudell newscast: “If Jeff Christopher wants to be an olde tyme sheriff that badly, he should move to another state.”

I’m a loser
I’m a loser
And I’m not what I appear to be

Of all the love I have won or have lost
there is one love I should never have crossed
It was a chance in a million, my friend
I should have known Court would win in the end

I’m a loser
And I lost something that’s near to me
I’m a loser
And I’m not what I appear to be

Although I laugh and I act like a clown
Beneath this badge I am wearing a frown
My tears are falling like rain from the sky
Is it for the Constitution or myself that I cry

I’m a loser
And I lost something that’s near to me
I’m a loser
And I’m not what I appear to be

What have I done to deserve such a fate
I realize I have left it too late
And so it’s true, pride comes before a fall
I’m telling you so that you won’t lose all

I’m a loser
And I lost something that’s near to me
I’m a loser
And I’m not what I appear to be

Development With No Control As Planned by Mark Baker

Rt. 1, Lewes, Delaware   circa 2021

Sussex County is at a crossroads…  The difference between Joan Deaver and Mark Baker is as stark as the difference between good and evil….  Slowing development is good..  Getting Community input before a development goes in is good…  Development doesn’t stop if Joan wins on November 4th…  It simply continues under your control…

If Mark Baker wins, development flourishes no matter what you want… This scenario is plausible… You wake up one wintry morning and find your next door property was sold and in comes an apartment complex, or a mall, or a gravel pit, with heavy machinery working twenty four/seven.  “There not going to do that you say in anger!….”  Oops… Too late…. you voted for Mark Baker… There is nothing you can do…

If Mark Baker wins, there will be no oversight in the Third District.  But if Joan Deaver wins…. little by little each person gets their county back… If a development goes in… someone will have to knock on your door first, to tell you about it…. If a development is planned, a meeting in your neighborhood is called and you can look at the plans and argue among yourselves whether or not, you want it to go forward….  If a development is planned you do not have to worry about sitting in your driveway twenty minutes to find a space even long enough in which to pull out…(True story in New Castle County)….  If a development is planned you can relax; you will not have to worry whether your school which last year had 600 elementary students, this year is carrying 1200 elementary students… Mark Baker has only lived in a rural environment… to him… it’s “what’s the big deal?”… But to anyone who has lived in another spot, and sees where Sussex County is rapidly going, and understands that staying rural is an ideal that must be protected at all costs, and knows that the quality of life we have here is what makes living near the ocean in Delaware so special,… understands that turning Route 1 into a Route 40 in Bear Delaware…. IS a big deal…

Your home value will drop a further 25%.

And under Mark Baker your taxes will rise… Maybe not even during his term, but because of uncontrolled development, more services are required, and more money per person is required to perform them….  That is why real estate taxes are extremely high in developed areas… you need more schools per square mile than you do in Sussex County.. You need more sewers per square mile, more tarmac per square mile, more police per square mile, more firetrucks and ambulance services per square mile.  That is why New York has very high real estate taxes, as well as New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland…. That is why property taxes in New Castle County are higher than those in Kent or Sussex County…The denser people are packed, the more each person has to pay….

Your taxes will rise if development proceeds under the plans laid out by developers….  They will rise slower if you ask with each development… how much will this cost per person, and can we afford it…

Joan Deaver on County Council will provide a balance to the developing interests that have their eye one Sussex County…  Developers aren’t bad…  They just need some supervision….  Some control…. just like your car…

You wouldn’t buy a brand new truck, with a good engine and no brakes…. for once you got going….. how would you ever stop?  The first cars actually didn’t have brakes… because their inventors were used to horses.  The idea of how to stop once running actually didn’t occur to them until the middle of their test drive… After several crashes, brakes were added… and improved, and improved again… Today we wouldn’t think of buying a car without brakes…

Mark Baker on County Council is just that…. a forward force for developers without brakes…… With him on County Council even for just one term… the scenario mentioned above where you wake up to your neighbors plot belonging to something you don’t want…. is a avid reality…..

Joan Deaver is like putting brakes on the process.. If  things are going smoothly, no force is applied and progress continues forward and great strides are made….  But when a obstacle falls in front of us across the road of your future development, and disaster appears inevitable, she can and will apply the brakes to keep the County from being ruined by overdevelopment.

That is why anyone who is not a personal friend of Mark Baker, needs to give Joan Deaver their vote on November 4th… If Sussex County is to become a viable place to live and work, and keep the specialness that it has today…. and not turn into what the picture at the top of this post portrays…. then brakes need added to the Sussex County Council…  The one carrying the brakes for the Third District…. is Joan Deaver…

Mark Baker is all gas.
