I, along with most NON-low-information voters across the fruited plains, am playing close attention to the Benghazi drama.
I want to see one reporter, maybe one elected guy, ask Hillary Clinton, a woman who is the biggest liar on this planet, she could win prizes, whether she would have left Chelsea stay at that Libyan embassy with the security situation Ambassador Stevens had, or, would she have appreciated a “stand-down” order had it been Chelsea suffering a horrific and degrading death?
But stuff still happens in Delaware and let’s not forget the Vice-President of this despicable administration is part of the lies that go on every day.
Credit where credit is due….Same Sex Marriage-
It’s good to see a couple Republican guys speaking out for marriage being defined as a man and a woman.
It’s a shame that you got to send Kudos to these elected guys who were, after all, elected to do OUR bidding, as opposed to, say, becoming our Lords and Masters as is their wont.
Senate Republican Leader Gary Simpson (Milford):“I have never seen an issue of such far-reaching magnitude as this bill. The decisions we are making today not only affect the issue at hand – same-sex marriage – but will have long-lasting effects upon the very structure of the social and moral fabric of our state and country for years to come. This is a bill I just could not support in any fashion whatsoever.”
Senate Republican Whip Greg Lavelle (Sharpley): “The vote today will have significant cultural, social and historic implications which I don’t believe we will know fully for a few years to come. I believe that there will be unintended consequences and that people will look back and say,‘Well, I didn’t know that was going to happen.’”
“It is an issue that I believe should be decided in the legislature and not in the courts. While I’m not happy with the results, it is a good thing that the legislative process worked this bill and that it was not done through judicial interpretation of the civil union statute somehow being unconstitutional or unfair. This is a decision that a legislature really should be making, one way or the other.”
“I also believe that the very understandable issues of inheritance, pension, healthcare, benefits, all those things, could be achieved in another manner that would also protect the concerns of others.”
Silly Gun Control Bill
In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, that crappy gun control law just passed by Delaware’s legislature is the WORST piece of law-making ever crafted by idiots.
Below, an explanation provided by the local newspapers:
The bill includes several exceptions, such as transfers to immediate family members, qualified law-enforcement officers and certain short-term transfers to persons personally known to the owner.
So okay, why can I give or sell my gun to a law enforcement officer without bother of background checks? No wait! Maybe that’s how they got all those police chiefs to sit in and betray us as our Lords and Masters that they too want to be!
And what the hell does “certain short-term transfers to persons personally known to the owner”, mean?
Just how long is a “short-term” transfer? And why would I give or lend my gun to anyone that I do not personally know? If I lend my daughter my gun cause I fear for her, this is ok?
Don’t bother explaining, it was never meant to mean anything and it will NEVER be enforced.
So I suppose we should be happy that these Lords and Masters are playing politics with out freedoms cause, come on….it doesn’t mean anything. Well hell’s bells, Ernie Lopez, that cute Republican guy from Lewes , swears he thinks most of his constituents have no problem with these additional background checks
Oh yes we do Ernie, we’ll get back to you next election on that.
I am sick of these people getting elected and enacting silly laws that are just a political thing. Some day, some way, we are all affected by dumb laws, by laws they never really meant to enforce.
Do we pay them for this sort of thing?
Hold onto your anger, folks, till 2014. The absolute ONLY way to get rid of them…well we might not elect them to begin with, silly Lewes…but hey, we sure got rid of Urquhart.
Vance Phillips…Is It Only Republicans in This County Getting Involved in Sex Scandals?
I sure hope Vance Phillips, vaunted Republican Sussex county councilman, has made arrangements to write his memoir. If not, and since he is my Facebook friend, he should contact me to begin penning the story that they’ll not believe.
There was, of course, the Sheriff incident. Seems Phillips and the current Sheriff at the time got into a fisticuffs in GOP headquarters in Georgetown. Scuttlebutt indicated the brawl included knees to the groin and other nasty fight techniques.
Then, unbelievably, Vance falls out of the sky in some kind of toy glider aeroplane, a hobby he enjoyed but there was that element of danger. Vance came out of this incident injured and he is still recovering.
Now, per Delaware Online, we learn that Vance was involved with some young thing and that he allegedly forced himself upon her.
Is it only Republicans getting involved in all these sex scandals? I also recall an Eric Bodenweiser being run out of an election based on some sex charges from many moons ago.
Since Eric has of yet to come to publicly defend himself I assume he is guilty. And don’t lecture me that he’s innocent until proven guilty. I am not on his jury; I am part of the public who thinks one charged with horrific crimes should come out and defend himself.
Vance Phillips does rigorously defend himself against the charges but hey, Vance, we love you here in Sussex but you definitely need to keep a lower profile for a while.
My Personal Strange Story of Sussex Boundaries and Rules Not Enforced.
It’s a most ordinary land dispute, please understand, and I won’t bore with the particulars. Fence disputes are nothing new.
What is new is a county Planning and Zoning Inspector II sending me a letter, having evidently made a decision with no input from anybody else so served, that I AM GUILTY, and the guy protesting my fence line is in the right.
Like I said, fence and boundary disputes are nothing new under the sun but I will never understand why, based on a survey done by a builder behind me just two weeks ago, and unbelievably on the very day of my husband’s funeral, decided my fence was, get this, 4’6″ over the builder’s (and, thus, his client’s)property line.
My WELL is right near that distance, my shed and a fence, all of which will be affected by Dean Pettyjohn’s demand in his letter to me dated 5/3/13 that I move my fence.
It turns out that I TOO have a survey, signed and certified as Delaware law requires, dated in 2003, the year I purchased my house.
I am willing to fight this out with the builder et al with no bother to others except….goodness, what is MY survey? Chopped liver?
And Mr. Pettyjohn just boom, yeah, you gotta move your fence, your shed, your well, cause this builder guy, what, has a NEWER survey?
At the least, don’t I (and my neighbors, also affected and also irritated) get a chance to show MY piece of paper?
I even called up Mr. Pettyjohn, and he answered me very graciously. I asked him, essentially, the above, why doesn’t my survey count, why do I arbitrarily get a letter telling me to knock down my fence or the constable is coming after me? Why doesn’t MY survey count, why wasn’t I asked to show proof before pronounced guilty? He mumbled something about how he’d sure like to see my survey. Well why didn’t he maybe put in his letter pronouncing me guilty? Why didn’t he ask for documentation if I had it instead of arbitrarily pronouncing me guilty?
This is the most eggregious action taken by Sussex county in my experience and something is really wrong with how this comes down. I am willing to fight this builder in court, my brother-in-law is a surveyor, I know how it works. One or the other of us has a bad survey and the issue might go to court. I’m okay with allowing a judge decide. What I’m NOT ok with his having some bureaucrat pronounce me guilty without even offering to talk to me.
But I go to court A MARKED WOMAN! For Dean Pettyjohn has marked me guilty and I never had a chance to defend myself!
Councilwoman Deaver is helping with this but I haven’t heard from her in a while. She promised to help me with this. I did take all documentation, including a signed and certified survey of mine dated 4/2/2003-that’s right…TEN YEARS AGO- to Mr. Pettyjohn, walked it there myself! Why is the builder’s survey better than mine? And even if there is an error in my survey, does Sussex county Planning and Zoning Inspector II get to willy-nilly negate mine in favor of a newer survey?
Will keep yon reader updated. Cause someday YOUR neighbor might get a survey way newer than your old thing and the Sussex county Planning & Zoning Inspector II shall pronounce you guilty without benefit of a defense.
I do not respond to comments on my posts. I certainly have no problem with such commentary and, indeed, encourage it. But I’ve written my piece and I don’t want to argue it further.
Please feel free to email me at email@example.com if you want to send me a special comment or have any ideas or information you want to share.
And tune in NEXT week for the saga of the newly widowed woman tied to fence as cruel builders threaten with survey taken ten years AFTER hers. It’s gonna be a cliff hanger, folks, I will tell you all about it.
