Don’t be silly

If anyone thinks Trump is going to announce that he thinks climate change is real, you need your head examined. Additionally, if you think Jarrod Kushner is going to pay a price for his treason, you really have a screw loose.

Now get out in the fresh air and enjoy this weekend.

The best mark in a con is the kind who doesn’t believe they’ve been conned, even when the con is revealed. Either they are so embarrassed that it’s easier just to double down on the delusion or they’re that fucking stupid. And, in the end, it doesn’t matter because they’ll line up to be fleeced again.

Are Democratic Ideals and Principals Now Relics of the Past?

In a decision that I can only interpret as a betrayal of the core principles and ideals of Democrats, ten members of Delaware’s Democratic Party House caucus joined the entire Republican House caucus and voted to pass HB 16. The piece of legislation, introduced by Representative Mike Ramone and co-sponsored exclusively by Republicans, would repeal […]

Here is a new Transperfect case followers.

Back on the 9th El Som wrote:

TransPerfect’s Campaign Imperfect. Did any of you see that commercial sponsored by some PAC called something like Pro-Business Delaware? Basically the ad says that, thanks to the Court of Chancery’s decision in the TransPerfect case, a decision necessitated b/c the two key TransPerfect officials just couldn’t get along, Delaware will lose its pre-eminent status for incorporations? It’s part of a $500,000 (!) campaign to influence Delaware legislators. Well, so far the score is one who has been influenced (Bonini) and two who have turned thumbs down (Simpson and Lavelle). When a so-called pro-business PAC loses the R Senate leadership, it has lost Delaware. Maybe they should spend the $500 K to send the two feuding officers to counseling.

A quid pro quo? Both HB 16 (Ramone)  and HB 175 (Schwartzkopf) are on today’s House Agenda. HB 175 raises corporates taxes and fees and makes a substantial dent in the budget deficit.  HB 16 eliminates the Estate Tax. I wouldn’t be shocked if Speaker Pete placed HB 16 on the Agenda as part of […]
