Dec. 10 Open Thread: The Wheels Have Come Off, Trump’s Driving on the Rims

Filed in National, Open Thread by on December 10, 2018 3 Comments

When Richard Nixon’s presidency fell apart, he was at least enough of an old political hack to keep up the outward appearance of a functioning administration. Chalk that up as yet another thing Donald Trump can’t do. After weeks of publicly courting Nick Ayers, the Karl Rove of his generation, to be his new chief […]

Purzycki To Panhandlers: “Drop Dead!”

Filed in Delaware, Featured by on December 10, 2018 24 Comments

Let’s be honest: Mike Purzycki only represents people who come to Wilmington to build their already huge fortunes, but who don’t live here. People of substantial economic means who offend easily. People who apparently are offended by panhandlers. Not the circumstances that lead to the need to ask for money, but the people in such […]

I don’t make a habit of whining about media malfeasance — it’s just too common to get worked up over. But a glut of minor sins made for annoying reading this morning. First up: Reporters had a day to read the transcript of James Comey’s closed-door testimony to a House committee, which Democrats and Comey […]

Class Unconsciousness

Trump, of course, is an asshole. But I don’t get the wage slave anglo manager in this story. He heaps abuse on workers like he has more in common with Trump than he has with the workers.

I’m here to tell you Bruv, aside from melanin you don’t have shit in common with Trump.

Dec. 8 Open Thread: So What Do We Do With Him Now?

Filed in National by on December 8, 2018 1 Comment

The overnight analyses are coming in, and the consensus is that the story is going where we always knew it would: Trump likely committed all the bad acts we have suspected all along, plus possibly ones we don’t know about yet. The SDNY outright accuses him as an unindicted co-conspirator in felonies. Here’s a handy […]

Another blatant example of different standards of ‘justice’ for different classes of people. Just look at all these luminaries rushing to provide character references for  disgraced Wilmington Trust officer turned convicted felon Robert Harra, Jr.: A court filing Friday shows that those vouching for Harra include former Democratic Gov. Jack Markell, former Republican governor and […]

There have been a few high profile court cases, and a great deal of public debate recently dealing with time travel. Is it real, or an elaborate and lucrative hoax?

…this guy. What, you were expecting him to represent workers or the disadvantaged?  Of course, Short was representing the interests of this association and other business interests throughout his career in Dover. Burying minimum wage. Cutting ‘unnecessary’ regulation. ‘Privatizing’ state giveaways to corporations. Doing Jack Markell’s (and Pete Schwartzkopf’s) bidding by killing progressive legislation in […]
