What is Hansen all about? Is she another co-opted, corporate Dem, or does she have some progressive fire in the belly?
I’m holding off criticizing or praising until I see something from the campaign, which I will get to hear from on Saturday the 28th:
The first set of John Carney’s nominees sailed through the Senate yesterday. Republicans could not contain themselves from raining effusive praise on these nominations. And why should they? It’s basically the same set of characters with whom they did business during the Markell years. Which, at first glance, is what the Carney Administration appears hell-bent […]
PPPs are not a way to provide jobs, it is really a way that conservatives have found to privatize different government functions
This post, by Cassandra at Bluedelaware.com really nails Carney’s utter lack of vision and leadership by catching his most appalling moments from a meeting with Eastern Sussex Democratic Club (which is admirably trying to nudge Carney into a position that looks something (anything) like leadership.)
I like Obama. My biggest knock against him has been that, being a decent person, he projects good faith onto Republicans when there is none. The election of Trump appears to have opened his eyes. (Eight years too late to do anything about it.)
The United States of America in 2017: One political party gets shit done, but can’t tell a compelling story to voters. The other party has a coherent culture but is only interested in fucking shit up. The U.S. abortion rate has hit its lowest point since the procedure became legal nationwide in 1973, according […]
When Donald Trump bragged that he just grabs them by the pussy, we all thought he was done. Sadly, this wasn’t a deal breaker and his racism, misogyny, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia and other phobias have become a template for the ignorant to emulate.
OK, kids, this gets a little tricky. Yesterday morning dawned with Jack Markell as Governor. Today, John Carney is Governor. There are only two weeks until the General Assembly breaks for budget hearings. Gov. Carney wants to have his cabinet in place by then. What to do? Well, last week President Pro-Tem David McBride announced […]
A letter from college and university presidents to President-Elect Trump asks Trump “to condemn and work to prevent the harassment, hate, and acts of violence that are being perpetrated across our nation”.
Yes, today I offer you a brief respite from all of those ‘Markell legacy’ pieces emanating from…the Markell Administration. Which ends today. No, not the self-serving legacy pieces. The Markell Administration. Maybe this means that state workers can take off their body armor. I certainly hope so. When you take a closer look at the […]
In a nice piece on new county executive Matt Meyers, the Delaware Business Times said that he will be focusing on transparency. Something that the residents of New Castle County have not seen in 4 long years. More than a specific to-do list, Meyer prefers to review and collaborate to develop solid policies that will […]
Trump’s pick to head the EPA is not so surprisingly a fan of the environment. Carper will lead the charge against Scott Pruitt.
