Vote Markell-Copeland Administration!

My vote is for Jack Markell 100% but I have a problem with the Delaware democrats who gave Ruth Ann Minner a second term knowing she was screwing up!

The diehards Delaware Democrats proclaim Markell and Denn are the winning ticket for the people. I am not so sure!

I will not vote for a Lee-Copleand administration nor will I vote for a Markell-Denn administration.

I am voting for a Democrat Governor and a Republican Lt. Governor.

Matt Denn is a fine man and Charlie Copeland may need to move towards center. But we’re talking politics here and it’s time to break the Dover gridlock and force the Democrats and Republicans to work together! In four years from now if Delaware is still a mess we’ll have to really consider a 3rd party candidate!

A Markell (D)-Copeland (R) administration is the only safe ticket.

  1. ya know Kilroy, we have a current Prez w/ a bogus MBA from Harvard, his daddy bought it for him….he can talk the talk though, or atleast read the scripts…..Hank “full of shit” Paulsen has an MBA from Harvard also….well, we all know he is just another Wall St thug!!!!the bailout fiasco….following up on Bubblemaster Greenspan!!! and his most recent incompetence was very very transparent…..Copeland has an MBA from Duke , I think…Denn…who cares where he got his…….and then I guess Herr Doktor Katz has one too……..not sure these “businessmen” really have what it takes to jump start this state into 21st century!!!

    Thing is, not sure these lowbrows ever learned in school or in their life experience and work experience what its gonna take to make Delaware something again…..Copeland says he has brought jobs to DE before and says he can again…..I am very skeptical he has enough vision or forward thinking to do this in a 21st century manner….I mean, WTF, its not true that all stupid people are republicans, but all Republicans ARE STUPID people.

    We need to become a 21st century state, in a country that falls way behind the more progressive EU countries…….

    Hell, even the drunken sot , story telling Irish turned their country into high tech flourishing economy, an economic miracle…and we surely don’t need any more scamming bloodsucking CREDIT CARD companies….good bye Cauley forever, and you can see the top of the garbage landfill off I95 from Pittsbrgh on a clear day….Longterm Investment spending is what we need, not more Consumption!!!

    I want to see the econometrics of their plans…the real cost benefit analysis including the costs of all the externalties…..and something beyond quarterly profits,short term business approach!!! why don’t we have a fast rail grid in new castle county, why not 21st century building codes and state of art passive solar and geo thermal and solar mandated…..
    why not raise the gasoline tax, I liked the effect of $4 gas, although food and energy cost me about 1/4 of my income, I am willing to sacrifice to pay more in gas tax so that we can build state of art mass transit in this state….I am willing to sacrifice in the present for a better future for Delawares citizenry, the health of people the health of our earth….
    ….and yes UNIVERSAL health care is mandatory in a 21st century American state….the Mass. plan is a good start….a single supplier under the French model, much better….Yep, Mr denn, we won’t need all the bogus wasteful insurance personel and execs skimming the money needed for peoples health care ……and all the greedy MDs can take a little cut in their money making machines too…..” how many effing yachts do you need to waterski behind”, and how many gallons of oil do you need to burn to heat your conspicuous consumptive “mansions”, and all the effing decorating by the never satiated pretty little princess wives….why 7 full garbage cans at the end of the drive every week…..what the hell are you doing with all that stuff….???

    as for all the platitudes they screed about reforming education, what load of crap…THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT…lets keep our public schools diversified though…ethnically, intellectually, socio
    economically….etc….

    so, like I said, haven’t heard any of these jokers say much, including MARKELL, alot of platitudes and outdated schemes!!!!

  3. Laz I hear you! All the candidates seem to be having this pipe-dream that is so disconnected for reality. Maybe they should stuff a little gold in that pipe some they can get in touch with their inner-self and stop with the self serving public masterbation of distortion.

    Gasoline taxes you right but without transparent government / finances we’ll have school administrators just giving themselves rasies and bonuses.

    “THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT…lets keep our public schools diversified though…ethnically, intellectually, socio”

    I agree but we need to draw the line on blaming teachers for the negatvie impact of soicla issues that becamse classroom teachers problems. Also, many narrow-minded legislators can’t see not all Speical Ed students are ADD and there Severe learning disabilities caused be irreversible brain defects or impairment associated with individual disabilities. If school that serves Special Ed don’t meet the standards in the Special Ed sub-category the entire school failing under the fed rating system.

    Universal healthcare is the right way to good!

    Well, ya know, I am a ArchDruid and we believe as Merlin did with the instruction of young Arthur, that individuals are born with certain apptitudes that can be identified and nurtured, we beleive in Intrinsic motivation, not extrinsic……we also believe that one works before one eats….and no matter what ones level of contribution, everyone needs a marketable skill and deserves a job one enjoys doing and a living wage ….a job that one can slip into flow time while doing, and have time slip …….

    …as far as teachers go, yes, 99% are talented, hard working and well versed in their subject matter…..unfortunately, most of the kids come out of highschool STUPID, because the curricullum is STUPID, especially in History and civics and economics!!!!

    and then we have stupid administrators…75% of them…..and when Idiots like Merv with his bogus powerpoints from on high….screed the party line crap…..and the SHEEP teachers, afraid to say he is totally full of shit instead tow the stupid dumbing down line……yes, we have a problem with STUPID administrators….from Charter thru Cab and on down the line….and the herd mentality fearful Sheep teachers!!!!

    I know what your saying but many of the dip-shits don’t realize that we have severely disabled such as mental retardation.When you get into conduct disorders then we’re getting in behavoir. Many don’t understand the dieference between ADD and ADHD.
    To group all special ed kids into one defined group to measure achievment based an a standarized achievment is criminal! Then to pentalize an entire school rating becasue the special ed subgroup didn’t meet the standard is insane!
    It’s goes further, though the school missed one subgroup the negative ratings inpact community perception of the entire school.

    There are many teachers patrol the blogs and leave comments under anonymous. That get the message out all is not well but pulling parents into fight the battles based on information that doesn’t provide concrete substantiation is a no win! Then you have elected officials involved in building charter schools at a time they should be addressing the deficiencies in management of he public schools. You saw the state audits of Red Clay clear violation of state contract bid laws which results going to DOE and the AG’s Office. No consequences for the administrator or school boards. Education isn’t an institute it is a industry for profit with non-profit status.

    “many are just crazy dysfunctional home and parental situtations”

    You know that and I know that but many legislators don’t know. (ODD) Oppositional Defiant Disorder used to be handled with behavior modification in the form of a 3ft x 1ft x 1/2in piece of wood aka paddling. Should these kids be classified as Special Ed? Hell no! Many of the student who are classified with behavior disorders come from parents suffering from undiagnosed and untreated mental disorders and their children’s behavior is a predictable by product.

    “ an aside……u know I guess CSW is the best DE public school DE has to offer…..”

    The thing about it, CSW may be a public funded school but when you have selected admission by intelligence it really isn’t a public school. Charters school we meant to help reform public schools in efforts to address the achievement gap and if you compare the achievement gap between only charter schools in Delaware you’ll see a greater achievement gap in comparison to the traditional schools. I know who helped craft the Delaware charter school laws and the legislators help push the twisted law through.

    Charter school of Wilmington is the best “charter school” in Delaware but as far as best public school A.I. High is in the running.

    One of the biggest unanswered questions in education is, are colleges and universities really preparing the teachers of tomorrow properly. If we’re going to force and hold teachers accountable for the academic or rather lack of academic success of those students with behavior issues then why isn’t there intense classes on behavior within the college curriculum? School counselors, there isn’t enough time in a day to teach all the students in need.

    “maybe when we get rid of the crackhead Chrysler assembly line workers and their progeny we will have turned a corner….HA!!!”

    What about the coke heads on Wall Street?

    You know, the only difference between your wedding and funeral is, at least at you wedding you get to smell the flowers.

    FYI, you’ll never guess who may be tapped for the next Secretary of Education! I can’t tell but you’ll fall out when you hear. Val will be retiring when Minner leaves office in January so the next governor’s (Markell) first appointee will be the Secretary of Education
