    It’s not that he has tiny hands. He doesn’t. He has gigantic palms in relation to tiny, short fingers.

    Have to admit, Trump at the U.N. is a total disgrace to the nation and the world is laughing just a little harder right now. The bit about “rocket man” was a stunning display of stupidity and a playground bully mentality.

    Nikita Khrushchev came to mind as soon as I saw the idiot and his bluster

    Why do Republicans insist they’ll be decimated in 2018 if they don’t repeal Ocare? Here’s why:

  5. Wow, the Kochs really DO own the Rethuglican Party…and they’re close to owning America.

    Not a lot of Delaware news this month. Just a corporate takeover of the strategic fund, Amazon offering 50,000 people to the highest bidding state in the largest human trafficking scheme in modern history, and record crime in Wilmington.

    Please note the passing of Dr. Floyd E. McDowell on Sunday September 10th. I considered Dr. McDowell a friend and a worthy champion of economic justice for all. Floyd was truly the original pioneer of the idea and concept of a single-payer health care system. My most appreciative memory of Floyd was his relentless effort to enlighten the politicians and the masses of the need for “health insurance” reform and his remarkable adaptation of his “single-payer” legislation. My most disappointing memory of Dr. McDowell was my own failure to move this needed reform to the forefront of my colleagues and the public’s minds. Rest in Peace Dr. McDowell. You made a difference.

    @Bane: Amazon isn’t really Delaware news. Representatives of every government in the country showed what parochial rubes they are by slobbering at the sound of a bell.

  9. Speaking of that corporate takeover of the strategic fund, I’ve been told that not only is it not up and running, but that it won’t be functional for several more months.

    Meaning, whatever passes for economic development is coming out of Cerron Cade’s shop. Meaning, Delaware does not effectively have a functioning economic development office at this time.

  10. I really admired Floyd McDowell as well. Although he had a tendency to get off on tangents to the detriment of his proposals, he was, to my memory, the first advocate for single payer and other progressive insurance initiatives.

    His heart was always in the right place and, someday, his vision will become law.

    Cerron Cade? You mean the guy a decade out of college whose only experience is political and has zero economic development or business background?
