I was just wondering

Do eagles get a say in the vote for coal or Wind power? I mean, they should have a say too shouldn’t they? When the government told us to just eat less fish to get less Mercury in our bodies how did they get the message to the Eagles and other birds of prey? Hell, […]

Filed in National by on April 30, 2007 9 Comments

Sgt. Joshua A. Bushweller. Alcohol is not suspected in the crash, he said. Why wouldn’t it have been? 4:15 on a Sunday? I had a beer at 3pm that day. Why wouldn’t Ferris? Why wouldn’t he stop then? I would like to know why they felt the need to insert that statement in this article […]

Castle on WDEL: “Gen. Patreus is the King of America”

Filed in National by on April 30, 2007 2 Comments

More magical ass quips from Mr. Castle. Castle just said that when the time comes Gen. Patreus will tell the President that it is time to leave Iraq – and Bush will say “Okay.” (Cuz’ you know… Bush is reasonable.) Castle also claims that he considered defying Bush on his most recent appropriations vote. What […]

Filed in National by on April 30, 2007 5 Comments

New in-depth research from Scotland performed in a highly scenic area with a high density of wind farms indicates that tourists are much more likely to be attracted than put off by the knowledge that there are wind turbines in the area. In Denmark, a small country with the world’s highest wind turbine development, tourism […]

Michael Finnegan of the Los Angeles Times takes a look at the current environment for Republicans. President Bush’s unpopularity and a string of political setbacks have created a toxic climate for the Republican Party, making it harder to raise money and recruit candidates for its drive to retake control of Congress. Some of the GOP’s […]

The Iraq War, Windpower, Stem Cell Research, The Dioxin Pile, Clean Elections…. It is going to take a sustained grassroots lobbying effort by liberals to make sure we do the right thing.

I hereby challenge Michael Castle to a debate

Filed in National by on April 28, 2007 6 Comments

Mike Castle says: “…the final decision on when to leave Iraq must be left up to military commanders.” I say we have a formal Oxford University style debate to determine if that is a true/valid statement. I will argue that he is talking out of his ass (yet again). I will bring The Constitution, the […]

Since the editor of Delaware Liberal was more than complimentary of my little post last week, I thought I would try to do the same this week. I’m not sure how it will go over but I have carte blanche supposedly so why not press the enevolope a little. I can’t put my finger on […]

Around the Horn Friday: Veto Imminent Edition

Filed in Uncategorized by on April 27, 2007 4 Comments

Well the legislative branch has grown some cajones. Sure the chimp is going to veto the bill that funds the war, but requires that troops be withdrawn on October 1. So be it. The best part is that Bush will get it on the anniversary of his famous “Mission Accomplished” speech. Sorry this post is […]

The surge is working the surge is working!!!! Wait nevermind, lets wait until September to decide

Filed in National by on April 27, 2007 1 Comment

WASHINGTON, April 27 — The Bush administration will not try to assess whether the troop increase in Iraq is producing signs of political progress or greater security until September, and many of Mr. Bush’s top advisers now anticipate that any gains by then will be limited, according to senior administration officials. AS Jason would say….Castle […]

Dover Delaware Ranked 16th in List of Best Small Cities for Entrepreneurs

Filed in National by on April 27, 2007 5 Comments

That’s right, 16th. Not too shabby. Hold it. It lists the hottest business sector as “transportation” so I guess Inc. Magazine  is factoring in the Air Base’s mortuary business.

FOIA Request for Documents Related to Castle’s Claims to be “working” on changing Bush’s Iraq policy

Filed in National by on April 27, 2007 5 Comments

It is possible that Castle has been working in secret or in some back channel way to change Bush’s empty headed Iraq policy. I doubt it, but it is possible. So I am going to give Wenk a few days to come up with something before I send off this FOIA request. —————————————————————————— Hon. Michael […]

Democrats in the 41st should Vote for the Republican

Filed in National by on April 26, 2007 8 Comments

Kavips is right. Our guy Lynn Bullock supports the NRG proposal. I don’t know the guy – but that is a bad sign. Other bad signs include the Sussex County Democratic Party in general being (for the most part) less progressive than the Republicans on land use and development. The root of the matter is […]

The golden boy of the republican party that has hitched his wagon to the Iraq War apparently is too busy deciding whether or not to run for President than to vote on the Senate Floor these days. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), missing another major vote on the Iraq war today in favor of presidential campaigning, has […]

Filed in National by on April 26, 2007 10 Comments

UPDATE IV: I just called and told Hugh about the faulty link. I gave him my fax number an email address, but from the tone of his voice I’d say I have about a 50/50 shot at having that statement sent to me. UPDATE III: Castle’s Office now claims to have released a statement on […]
