2016 Presidential Election, A War of Political Ideology, And Personalities

The last six years of presidential executive decisions, has successfully changed the fabric of American society and also, the economic stability of America, as well as causing elevated racial tension and bringing many players into the 2016 presidential Election. Many feel the need for change, along with new dynamic leadership It is not coincidence that the frontrunners for both parties are from the far left and far right of their parties. America is split between a strong nouveau left socialist movement spurred on by a socialist president, and the re-emergence of a patriotic movement, to take back America, that is led by a "get back to basics" plain-talking businessman, Donald Trump. The two emerging frontrunners, Democratic Candidate, Bernie Sanders and Republican Candidate Donald Trump are as different as night and day. The American people are split down the middle between what Read more

Trump Holds Fast To Plain Talk As Debate Moderators Open with vicious Attack To Spur Ratings

The GOP first debate of the year opens with Trump being viciously attacked by Foxnews moderators. After a brief introduction, Foxnews Channel Anchor, Bret Bair opened with this question to the candidates, knowing full well what the answer would be from Donald Trump. Gentlemen, we know how much you love hand-raising questions. So we promise, this is the only one tonight: the only one. Is there anyone on stage, and can I see hands, who is unwilling tonight to pledge your support in the eventual nominee of the Republican party and pledge to not run an independent campaign against that person. Bret Bair continued, "again, we're looking for you to raise your hand now -- raise your hand now if you won't make that pledge tonight." I have a serious question here with Foxnews starting a serious debate with a obvious "ratings only question" from the gallery of candidates! This question Read more

Open Letter to the City of Wilmington, DE

GUEST OPINION By: Steve Washington, M.Ed. Why is the city government always in the news? One reason is that micromanagement in the parks and recreation division causes tension throughout youth employment. There are many concerns regarding the hiring process of youth workers and counselors. Although there is a lottery process for hiring youth, many of the youth are hired through word of mouth or by the powers that be in the department and sometimes city council representatives. This year, the department approached the hiring of program staff differently as in the past years since the beginning of the youth and family division. When do the powers that be have time to interview for temporary program positions? Perhaps, this may be a reason to such failures. Why have a manager of the youth and family service department if he or she cannot make decisions or interview the staff Read more

Baltimore’s Mayor, Incompetent Or Following Presidential Orders?

Baltimore's Mayor Is Beyond Incompetent. Are her actions also criminal? With the outbreak of uncontrolled violence in Baltimore Tuesday night, police stood still, and instead of arresting violent criminals who were looting, burning businesses and police vehicles, while stoning police, they retreated! Why? This is a question I've heard asked on radio talk shows and throughout Delaware where people gather. Accusations have been repeatedly hurled at Baltimore's Mayor, Stephaine C. Rawlings-Blake, that she ordered her police force to stand down, when and if violence broke out. Mayor Rawlings-Blake was repeatedly quoted by Foxnews' Anchor, Meagan Kelly as saying before the violence started, "we also gave those who wished to destroy, space to do that as well." It was also reported over many news sources that Mayor Rawlings-Blake spoke to President Obama long before the violence broke Read more
