Everyone has good reasons for not watching the crap being put on TV by the NFL right now. For me: 2) It has been warm and sunny the last few Sundays. Only a twit would stay in to watch TV on during an Indian Summer. and.. 1) TOO MANY holding fouls called away from the […]
This must watch clip is from the Rachel Maddow show. Sean Lynn posted it to FB this morning and notes that anti-intellectualism is something we need to guard against. I would add that the “anti-intellectualism” and civic ignorance that Souter laments is abetted by the kind of sham “bi-partisanship” John Carney and other Dems are so devoted to. It is a fetishized bi-partisanship not aimed at solving problems but is intended to muddy the political waters and decrease individual accountability among legislators.
It should be clear to all voters who was responsible for the economic collapse of 2008, for example. It should be obvious to voters which President “created ISIS” through a reckless foreign policy. But it isn’t obvious because we have Democrats like John Carney who are totally devoted to exculpating Republicans in pursuit of “bi-partisanship.”
Skip to about 2:40 to start at Souter’s remarks.
After the first Presidential debate on September 26th, Charlie Copeland released a statement saying that Donald Trump won the debate with a performance that made it clear that he should be supported by Republicans, Democrats and Independents alike.
Since that time Trump has revealed the fact that he is a serial sexual predator who feels that his celebrity status gives him the freedom to grab women “by the pussy.” He has supported Russian geopolitical aims, and taken election aid directly from the Kremlin, and last night Trump said that he will keep the country “in suspense” over the question of whether or not the peaceful transfer of power will continue in American.
And yet Charlie Copeland still fully supports Donald Trump for President. That is appalling. It is one thing for Charlie Copeland to have political differences with Democrats, but to fully support a candidate that is attacking a vital tenant of our system, the notion that election results are honored and accepted by winners and losers alike, that is simply appalling.
This is not surprising when you consider the fact that unless it deals with grabbing p*ssy, promoting his golf course, or basically acting like an entitled ass, Donald Trump seems as intellectually lazy as a marginally competent CVS employee.
Security researcher Kevin Beaumont had a look at the mail servers operated by the Trump organization and found a veritable dumpster fire: systems running Windows 2003 (!), unpatched, badly configured.
His security policy is to depend on the kindness of Putin.
I heard about Colin Bonini’s weed legalization petition from a friend on the west coast.
“What are your thoughts on Senator Bonini?”
“I like his stand against civil asset forfeiture, but he is going to get crushed on election day. Why do you ask?”
Trump is no outlier. It is the policy of the Republican party that only Republican Presidents are legitimate. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) suggested Monday that the Republican party’s months-long refusal to fill a vacant seat on the Supreme Court would extend into the next administration if Hillary Clinton is elected president. “I promise you that […]
I had heard that Ken Boulden was looking at the empty RD seat Earl Jaques would create by moving up to BHL’s vacated senate seat. But Celia says it is down to Jaques or Boulden v. some GOP tomato can for the SD seat. The confidence was so high, the intrigue was already thick at […]
57% of DL readers think that his support is based on a searing hatred for Hillary Clinton. I don’t happen to buy that. While there are a great many Republicans who are viscerally impulsive slaves to their lizard brain. Copeland doesn’t strike me as that type of Republican. There is something else at work…
Bonini and Copeland, like all cowering cowards in the GOP, want it both ways. They want credit for being offended by him, but still fully support Trump.
Our own El Somnambulo gets my vote for Progressive of the Year. His coverage of the state legislature is first rate. It is the only Leg Hall coverage I read. When he shines a light into that dank crevasse, legislators blanch with fear and embarrassment. Or at least they should if they were capable of […]
Because Tom Gordon and Karen Weldin Stewart lost, that means Harris McDowell, David Sokola, and Bruce Ennis will lose.
That’s the gist of Michael Flemming’s logic impaired craziness.
I feel very strongly that people deserve the best leadership possible from their elected officials. Providing a choice in that leadership is crucial to having the best representation possible, which is the reason I seriously considered a write-in candidacy for New Castle County President. However, after a lot of back and forth, analysis, and feedback, […]
Henry David Thoreau wrote “Civil Disobedience” in response to his 1846 one night imprisonment for refusing to pay a poll tax that violated his conscience.
“Civil Disobedience,” became the blueprint for people like Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr and Donald Trump all of whom used principled, non-violence to battle injustice.
Must the citizen ever for a moment, or in the least degree, resign his conscience to the legislator? Why has every man a conscience then? I think that we should be men first, and subjects afterward. It is not desirable to cultivate a respect for the law, so much as for the right. The only obligation which I have a right to assume is to do at any time what I think right.
Thoreau’s call to stand for what one thinks is right no doubt informed Trump’s decision to break the immoral US embargo of Cuba in 1998.
This plan would be an economic boon to New Castle, Delaware City, Port Penn, Leipsic, Little Creek, Bowers Beach, Milford, Lincoln, Ellendale, Georgetown, and Lewes.
Why start 100 yards behind the starting line? The DEGOP is in complete disarray, that’s why.
I realize that the Presidential race is sucking up all of the oxygen, but there is an eerie quiet upon the land. It really seems that the DEGOP is taking a pass on this election, and as a result, the Dems have decided to keep it quiet. Aside from a random Bonini highway sign, I […]
Reporting on the results of online polls..? How “Fox News” can continue to call itself “news” is beyond me. Online polls declare Trump debate winner, despite media consensus for Clinton Published September 27, 2016 FoxNews.com If polls only included media pundits, Hillary Clinton would have won Monday’s debate by a landslide, but online surveys had […]
There is no way Charlie Copeland listened to the jibberish gushing out of Trump’s mouth last night and concluded that Trump should be President. By all accounts, Copeland is reasonably intelligent, so there is simply no way he came to that conclusion. But his statement makes it clear that Charlie Copeland is ready and willing to lie in order to be a good party man. His first loyalty is to the GOP. And that is a shame, because as a citizen, his first and highest loyalty should be to the country.
I’m actually surprised. I thought Cruz was positioning himself as the phoenix that would rise out the ashes of the Trump incinerated GOP. Cruz no doubt thinks that either a) Trump is going to win, or b) Trump is going to lose but emerge as the GOP shot caller after the election. Sen. Ted Cruz […]
