We here at Delaware Liberal have been accused of demanding too much from our Democratic representatives in Dover and DC, of wanting these Dems to have a spine when it matters. The bar is seriously low and half the time, these weak-kneed Democrats cannot even reach that.
The Date: Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017, polls open from 7 am to 8 pm. The Stakes: Control of the Delaware State Senate. The Party Standard Bearers: John Marino (R); Stephanie Hansen (D); Joseph Lanzendorfer (L). The District: The 10th SD’s northern boundary takes in southern portions of Newark. The district runs south from there along […]

*slow light fade* Morons everywhere: Patriarchy is a made up construct so feminazis have something to complain about !! (Except it usually comes out like “fuck you, you fat, ugly bitch”–because it’s hard for them to say “patriarchy” and “construct”) Liz Warren: *tries to read a letter about a man who is nominated for US […]
You’ve heard about it. Now you can watch it.
Melania Trump’s lawyers alleged in a lawsuit filed Monday that the First Lady’s “unique once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity to profit from her White House role was damaged by a Daily Mail article claiming she once worked as an escort. The suit, filed in New York State Supreme Court against the tabloid’s owner, Mail Media, seeks compensatory and […]
Delaware Public Radio is reporting that the Syrian family set to resettle in Delaware have rebooked their flight for this week given that the courts have struck down Trump’s Muslim ban.
We have a sub-group of activists on this blog that has formed around the idea of actual visits to the offices of the congressional delegation.
I have learned, through this group, that Planned Parenthood is discouraging counter protests on Feb 11th, the day a bunch have assholes have picked to protest affordable healthcare for women.
In the wake of the Vaughn Correctional uprising that ended in the death of Steven Floyd, prison reform is on the minds of many. It’s too bad that it took the death of a guard to put prison reform on anyone’s agenda. But this is the way things work in the States, we wait till something spirals out of control before we do something about it.
Delaware Requires Public School Teachers and Administrators to Force Students to Recite the Pledge of Allegiance
When the Department of Education has procured and distributed American flags in each free public school, any principal or teacher of such free public school who fails to require the salute and pledge as set out in § 4105 of this title shall be fined not more than $50 or imprisoned not more than 10 days.
Once you’ve internalized this axiom; “Culture Beats Strategy” it is easy to easy to see every contest or competition through that lens. That was a nice strategy the Atlanta Falcons had last night. too bad that were playing against a team with a strong culture. A strategy is a nice thing to have. A culture is essential.
When a team, group, company or family builds a culture it doesn’t need for things to go perfectly. People know what to do in situations that haven’t been thought through and game planned. A team with a culture has a lot of group cohesion around a few basic assumptions. People can take independent action because they know the organization’s goals without having to be directed. A strategy is merely a list of things you want to happen. A culture operates on an entirely different plane.
When Republicans beat Democrats with policies that add up to a lot of threadbare nonsense under the most fleeting scrutiny – they are winning on culture. Democrats seem to be constantly confused about this. They shouldn’t be. Culture beats strategy.
Group membership means something to people in a culture. Group membership is a means to personal ends for people executing a strategy. Members of a culture share values, spoken and unspoken, and you don’t need to explain how any given policy fits into the values of a culture. It either does or doesn’t on its face.
One of the poorest excuses for ‘journalism’ I’ve read in a long time. Made me want to ‘fwow’ up: http://www.delawareonline.com/story/news/2017/02/03/after-month-blunt-rochester-finding-her-direction/97395588/ The guilty journalist is one Adam Duvernay. Who may well be auditioning for a role as her press secretary since this puff piece is a PR release if ever there was one. A couple of […]
This is from Eliot Cohen writing in the Atlantic:
For the community of conservative thinkers and experts, and more importantly, conservative politicians, this is a testing time. Either you stand up for your principles and for what you know is decent behavior, or you go down, if not now, then years from now, as a coward or opportunist. Your reputation will never recover, nor should it.
This is from Charlie Copeland writing to stir Republicans to call Senator’s Coons and Carper:
President Trump has kept his promise to nominate a Supreme Court Justice in the mold of Anatonin Scalia. He kept his promise last night when he announced that he had chosen Judge Neil Gorsuch for the High Court….
Already, the liberal elite are working hard to ensure that Senators Tom Carper and Chris Coons vote against Judge Gorsuch. They will use every means available to twist their arms so both of Delaware’s senators fall in-line with their extreme progressive agenda.
One day Copeland is going to have to answer for what he did during the popular vote losers reign of malevolent idiocy. I suspect when that day comes, Copeland’s excuse will be that he was just doing his job.
