Are you sure you want that Iphone?

Filed in National by on June 29, 2007 7 Comments

caught this over at Boing Boing and it is really something to think about. Apple’s iPhone already has its first controversy. Why is AT&T the exclusive wireless carrier for the iPhone? As it stands now, Act for Change sees iPhone users locked into a service contract with “a corporation whose practices seem to run counter […]

A Little More About PDD Endorsements

Filed in National by on June 28, 2007 6 Comments

My recent comments about how John Tobin helped launch the PDD’s endorsement process got me to thinking about how effective that operation has been. For people who still don’t know about the PDD, like the Stonewall Dems and the Women’s Democratic Club we are a Recognized Club of the Delaware Democratic Party. Like the Stonewalls […]

UPDATED: Is this the begining of blogger laws?

Filed in National by on June 28, 2007 26 Comments

I’m hearing that Daniello (in spite of the fact that he hates blogs and bloggErs) paid bloggers a backhanded compliment by sarcasticly commenting “if this thing doesn’t pass (HB177 ?), bloggers should have to register as lobbyists.” It was a kind of acknowledgment that blogs are having some impact. Mike Says: “Yes, John Daniello is […]

The two party system

Filed in National by on June 28, 2007 0 Comments

These days it is popular to bash the “two party system.” Nothing about Republicans or Democrats appears in the Constitution and when and when you look at the frauds and losers who currently comprise the leadership of the two dominate party here in Delaware it is not hard to fall into the trap that the […]

Mike Castle: Mr. MIA

Filed in National by on June 28, 2007 7 Comments

The fact that nit wits like Chris continue to support the President is understandable – but Mike Castle is supposed to be smart. What does he gain from sticking with this nut job when it comes to Iraq? Mike Castle has not uttered a word about Iraq in six months. (Which I guess is no […]

Bush to Congress: F@#k You!

Filed in National by on June 28, 2007 8 Comments

Liberalgeek blogged this yesterday, but my take is saddness. It is sad to me that my Republican friends* care so little about our history and traditions that they can, even today, they can defend Bush’s illegal and unAmerican eavesdropping operations on the grounds that it promotes “security”. Now it is official: Bush has told Congress […]

Mike Castle totally f’ing MIA on the Fusion Bill

Filed in National by on June 27, 2007 6 Comments

For all the freaking out going all about HB177 (Fusion) I wonder why Mike Castle , who scuttled the bill last time, has been silent? According to Castle the bill was an afront to Democracy last June. Now…not so much. One wave of his mighty hand and HB177 would be history. Has he flip flopped? […]

Subpoena. Today Dick Cheney and the White house were issued subpoenas directing them to turn over documentation the the illegal wiretapping program.

Dog Lovers for Thompson

Dog lovers are funny. When this story gets out that Flippster strapped his dog to the roof of his car it could mean the end of this Presidential dreams. Before beginning the drive, Mitt Romney put Seamus, the family’s hulking Irish setter, in a dog carrier and attached it to the station wagon’s roof rack. […]

For those of you that confuse Insurgents with AQ

you are wrong, yes, oh yes, you are.  It is like calling all illegal aliens Mexican. But this guy is only a retired Major General and a former division commander in Iraq. Most likely he is a liberal, a pussy, works for the enemy and hates this country!

Wonky Wednesday: Let’s Get Recycling Done This Week

Filed in Uncategorized by on June 27, 2007 7 Comments

The General Assembly has before it a bill, House Substitute 1 to House Bill 146, that would create a meaningful statewide recycling program in Delaware. A competing bill, HB 159, while not as far reaching, would still go a long way to creating the infrastructure for statewide recycling. While either would be good for Delaware, the […]
