Will Nancy Sinatra send Jessica Simpson to deliver a message to President Trump for using daddy’s My Way ?

Does Trump’s Executive give Delaware and other states the green light for single payer health care insurance and more?

Can’t wait to see the states interpenetration of President Trump’s executive order.

Could Delaware set up a single payer health care insurance program that would include all including state-workers and freeloading legislators?   

Until such at time healthcare is affordable to all and real controls are in place to curve cost there should be no financial penalties in the way of fines. And obstructionist like Senator Tom Carper needs to be voted out of office! Suggesting Canada would dump toxic prescription drugs on Americans is nothing more than protecting his special interest America drug-makers.

Dear Wilmington Delaware: why is that black lives matters only at the hands of whites and not thy brother?

I am not trying to sound racist but at a time when our African-American community feels threaten with unpredictable President Trump one would expect unity stronger than ever!

An eye for an eye and snitches get stitches needs to end! The time for a street truce is now!  If you can kick a man’s ass without a gun you’re a pussy! Not a man!

May I remind you, Dr Martin Luther King has to wade through a valley of tears to reach the mountain top on the other side! Right now I can see him sitting on the mountain top crying for you! 

To all Wilmington mothers: there have been many many broken promises in regards to education. And I not talking about teachers! I am talking about politicians aligned with rich white million and billionaires all wanting to make your child’s life better. We know all the broken promises! Title 1 Section 1118 is no more and the hard work of William Hicks Anderson seems all for nothing! The Twins know and I know it! I don’t know if brother Jea, Theo and Norm has the strength or grit to relight Anderson’s torch that was snuffed. The true path out of poverty is through education and without you there as “voice” for your children and children who seem not to have parents capable of speaking for them will keep the same old same old!

Mothers, under the bed of your young male children is most likely a gun! Or it could be stashed elsewhere in the house! Find it and get rid of it! The cries in the night “why my child” someday might be your’s. Yelling out ” why doesn’t the police do something ” one day and saying fuck the police the other day does nothing to address “your” problem! Yes and then there is Donald Trump! The worse of two evils aka Hillary! There will be those riding the hate Trump tide just to jump on the bandwagon to loot! And sadly destroying their own neighborhood! 

We can only pray Governor Carney has a sincere heart and will add reinforcements to the men and women of blue! The sad reality is, many living outside the city of Wilmington don’t give a rat’s ass about brothers killing brothers. Some say, good another crack-head off the street!

Sure where there is dope there’s no hope! And nobody can comprehend the  number unemployed of high school graduated minorities! Yea plenty of jobs on the Amazon plantation! Then what? Brothers killing brothers in Wilmington Delaware are killing jobs for Wilmington! Sure it all seems to be a drug or turf war! But who in the hell wants to roll the dice and come to Wilmington to enjoy what is left?

I said it many of times! Superman ain’t coming! The strength isn’t coming from the men whom many are in cross-bar hotel for some stupid drug possession! It’s all up to you mom! Yep and many grandmas!

Holding hands and praying is nice! You been there and don’t that! But now is the time to search your house and purge the evil 9 and the sweet powder and rocks!

If black lives truly matters lets start with respecting it in the village among all brothers. The time is now for a street truce! Yea yea! I am a dreamer! But I am not a racist!

10 Adam 12  10-53  10-44 make that  10-50

Former Delaware Congressman Mike Castle support Trump / DeVos education

Castle opines on Trump Frank Gerace Published Jan 15, 2017 at 6:40 pm | Updated Jan 16, 2017 at 11:08 am WDEL

Former U.S. Congressman and Delaware Governor Mike Castle said his views on President-elect Donald Trump are mixed.

There are things he likes about Trump, including the way he’s shaken up the D.C. status quo, the veteran Republican said. 

“Challenging as that may be, and challenging as he is, we’ll have the benefit of everybody looking around carefully in terms of what they’re doing, and perhaps improving the service of the federal government to the populace in general,” said Castle.

Castle said some of Trump’s negative qualities are his seeming “impulsiveness” and what the ex-congressman views as out-of-control behavior.

Like the President-elect himself, many of Trump’s Cabinet picks march to their own tune policy-wise, including Education Secretary nominee Betsy DeVos, Castle added.

“The use of vouchers and charter schools, etc cetera, and how a lot of other people in this country do, that is that we need to make all of our education stronger, and that’s not necessarily a difference from Trump, but clearly a Cabinet secretary that’s going in a different direction than the country has been going, “said Castle.

Before making a final judgment, Castle said he’s taking a “wait-and-see” attitude on Trump.

Delaware’s public school teacher associations (some call unions) better contain Governor Carney on school vouchers now!

For sure Race to The Top is water under the bridge! But the dam is going to break with school vouchers!

I urge every public school teacher unions in Delaware to have a letter in hand as the greet our new Delaware Governor John Carney and in that letter a message; under no circumstances will our organization support any education plan that directly or indirectly includes state and / or federal funds support school vouchers!

I assure you with Delaware finances in the toilet Governor John Carney will drop to his knees like Markell did for federal funds! Governor Carney controls the ball and the time is now to tell him we’re not in the school voucher game!

Now is the time to tell Goren Carney no school vouchers!!!

News media trying to pin Mexico’s gas crsis on Trump! But 2015 Olive Wyman document says other!

Mexican fuel consumption is forecast to grow by roughly 3 percent annually, a rate twice that of global demand growth and at a higher rate than the top five fuel-consuming countries. Fuel site throughputs are 30 percent higher than other mature markets, fuel prices are 20 percent higher than in the US, and convenience store penetration is low, at roughly 50 percent of fuel stations. Oliver Wyman estimates that by the turn of the decade, the number of fuel sites could grow by more than 40 percent.

Mystery order: Troops providing inauguration security to lose commanding general mid-ceremony

Better News

Something unusual is set to happen during Donald Trump’s inauguration: Nearly 8,000 National Guard troops protecting the nation’s capital will lose their commanding general. It’s unclear who approved the mid-ceremony change in command.

As the commanding officer of the DC National Guard, Major General Errol R. Schwartz is a presidential appointee. Schwartz will not only oversee the 2,700 troops in DC’s Army and Air Force National Guard during the inauguration, but also an additional 5,000 unarmed troops from 40 states and military air support that are part of the Joint Task Force-District of Columbia (JTF-DC).

Schwartz will be removed from his post effective January 20 at 12:01pm local time ‒ as soon as the United States’ commander-in-chief takes office, according to a memo obtained by the Washington Post. A post on the DC Guard’s Facebook page says that he “will retire” and “step-down” at noon.

“The timing is extremely unusual,”

Governor Markell’s NJ fantasy farewell letter! Thanks for the memories Jack! Our asses still burn!

A thank you note from Jack Markell by  Jack Markell

When I decided to run for governor in 2008, I could not have expected the reality that would face our state as I took the oath of office the following year. Employers large and small were closing their doors.   So many people – our family, friends and neighbors – had their lives turned upside down.

We have come a long way since those dark days. While the national economic recovery helped revitalize our communities, that alone cannot explain our progress, including not only the best job growth in the region, but also so much more that we have done together – at schools, in factories, on farms and in all corners of our state – to make Delaware a better place.

What F planet is he on ?? He and DSEA Judas sold us down the river with Race to The Top! Governor Carney will need about three years to upright the Delaware Department of Education. Speaking of Carney! Remember Markell pulled a primary on Carney in 2008 and basically fucked him over and now steps in as Jack leaves and gets fucked again with a $350 million dollar budget deficit! “The Great Recession would cause more than five percent of Delaware’s jobs to vanish.” WTF 5%? He must be using Common Core Math! 

I’m constantly reminded of the words of the famous historian, David McCullough, who said, “Among the most difficult and important concepts to convey in teaching or writing history, is the simple fact that things never had to turn out as they did. Nothing was foreordained.”

I constantly reminded every time I open my Delmarva bill how much of a blooming idiot you are ! 

You have constantly inspired me with your determination, ingenuity, love, commitment and humor, and we can be proud that together, we overcame obstacles and uncertainty to make our state more beautiful, more productive, more prosperous and more inclusive.

Yo Jack !!!! We’re $350 million in the hole!!! More inclusive?? I don’t think you’re talking African-American . A coalition of civil rights and religious leaders say Gov. Jack Markell, D-Delaware, is not taking enough action to address allegations of workplace discrimination and racism in Delaware’s state agencies.  

– 60,000 jobs created, helping us earn recognition as one of the top three state economies because of the talents of our business people and workforce

Yo!!! Knock-knock!!! #350 million in the hole! 

– Record high graduation rates, better access than ever to high-quality early childhood education, rising test scores across all grade levels, a nationally-recognized effort to increase access to college for those who thought they couldn’t afford it and more students graduating with college credit and workplace experience, none of which would be possible without outstanding educators, who are constantly seeking ways to improve the classroom experience for each student

Test scores !!!!! How can you have validity is results if the test keeps changing!  2016 high school graduates was the only generation of students who saw three forms of standardized test with pilot-testing in-between over their 12 years of public education! Smoke some pot Jack!

  – Protections and support for members of the LGBT community, because of advocates, lawmakers, friends and colleagues who opened their hearts, and then our laws, to all Delawareans

OK ! I’ll yield! You did that right!

– Hundreds of millions of dollars in private money being put to work developing our downtowns because of the creativity and imagination of city and town leaders.

Image your ass walking from one end of Wilmington to the other end at mid-night! Smoke some pot Jack! Stretch your imagination further!

   – A better chance to earn a job for people previously denied the opportunity, including people with disabilities and veterans, as well as ex-offenders who have served their time – the result of business people and others who believe everyone can contribute

See :  A coalition of civil rights and religious leaders say Gov. Jack Markell, D-Delaware, is not taking enough action to address allegations of workplace discrimination and racism in Delaware’s state agencies. 

The new administration will face more challenges. We always have more work to do. But I hope we will all keep in mind the way we have responded to our most recent adversities, and the progress we have made. It’s a reminder that we can do big things. We can act in the present for the sake of the future. We can put aside political and other differences to work together for the common good.

The new administration has to clean up the shit mess you left! 

As my time in office comes to an end, I owe a great debt of gratitude to my wife Carla and our family, to the selfless, compassionate, and committed state employees with whom I’ve been so fortunate to work, and to all of you who have worked so hard to improve our state and create progress that was never preordained.

Yep you should John Carney in 2008 about preordain! Yea state-workers going to love your ass when the find out their healthcare premium cost are going up! 

Serving as your governor has been the honor of my life, and I will never forget the kindness and generosity you have shown to me and my family. Thank you for a wonderful eight years.

Jack honestly !! Smoke some pot !

I hope our state employees remember Carper and Coons when they have to pay more for healthcare

Carper, Coons among Dems slammed for vote with drug companies , The News Journal

WASHINGTON — Delaware Sens. Tom Carper and Chris Coons are among 13 Democrats who Sen. Bernie Sanders blasted for lacking the “guts” to stand up to the pharmaceutical industry because they opposed a measure to allow cheaper drugs to be imported from Canada.

Obamacare failed to bring down the cost of Healthcare and here you have Carper and Coons setting the stage for high healthcare premiums for state workers!  

$350 million dollars in the hole and Governor Markell is proud of his record! Go figure !

America is heading for a recession and Jack Markell’s Delaware is carrying the failure flag!  

I’ve said many times, Governor Jack Markell will go down in Delaware history as the worst governor on public school reform! But now it looks like he’ll be the all-around worst governor in the state’s history.

There is no excuse Delaware should be $350 million dollars in the hole! So what ever happen to the rainy day fund ?

I can tell you this come mid-term elections 2018 those democrat elected officials praised Markell and kiss his ass during the last 8 years will be booted out office. We’ll count the vote supporting tax increases!

Tops on Kilroy’s political Sh*t list is all those he praise Markell as he leaves office!

 

 

 

DSEA election snafu! Are E-ballots going Elvis?

Per comments on social media, the elections for new leaders of the Delaware State Education Association election started January 9, 2017 and ends January 23, 2017. It appears voting is done via E-mailed ballots and mail-in paper ballots. There seems to be a lot of chatter about E-mailed ballots possibly getting trapped in spam-filters and junk mail boxes (pretty much the same).

To all DSEA members! It is very important that you vote! Solidarity is more important now than ever! I assure you the attempt to push school vouchers is real and knocking at the door! I am not going to tell you who to vote for because my critics say because I am not an educator or a member the election is none of my business! But I cam argue my taxes goes towards public education and I have grandchildren in Delaware public schools. What you do impacts them and what the overreaching federal and state government does impacts you and in many cases infringes on your ability to teach as a creative “individual”!

All the talk about Donald Trump and education might have some merits when it comes to school vouchers! However, Delaware Governor John Carney holds the keys to the State of Delaware. With the budget mess Jack Markell left Governor Carney may grab for the feds golden ring! You next DSEA leaders need to posses the grit and courage to tell Governor Carney, DSEA will not support any form of school vouchers state or federal initiative. Traditional public education has taken ab beating and DSEA members were hoodwinked re: Race to The Top!

Don’t throw your hands in the air and say, it doesn’t matter anymore! It does and especially for you young teachers with 5 years or less teaching experience! Push these candidates to call out Governor Carney NOW ! And take a position on school vouchers and tell him straight up! NO VOUCHERS!

So please contact DSEA if you haven’t received your ballot! Your vote is important to your student, parents and traditional public education that many of us value.        

 

  

And I am a racist for not voting for Hillary?
