OK, who will start "Gambling Liberally"?

Delawareonline.com: Governor Jack Markell signed legislation legalizing table games into law Thursday, setting up an implementation process that should have patrons playing with real cards and dice in as little as four months.

I am really excited about this. I am not a SLOTS player at all – I find them rather boring. I also never quite understood why we had casinos in this State but that Slots was all they had. What would be the difference if you added Poker or Blackjack – or any other table game? Dover Downs already sports a fake roulette table – I’d rather have a dealer then a screen and it ads jobs as well. I love not only playing but also watching Blackjack and Poker. While I won’t be able to play for financial reasons, knowing that I can without driving to Atlantic City is awesome!

AActually, to be honest, what bothered me was not so much there we only had slots, but that you couldn’t even pay with CASH at Dover Downs – getting all those quarters if you win and putting them into the machine is half the fun!

..when gays and lesbian can give money, then politicians will smooch them up right and left and make promises out of their ass. After the election we once again are the red-headed cousin – the one you invite for family dinner because you have to but still hope that she won’t show up for dinner. Obama and others were full of promises but they just haven’t delivered. Last year we had a few good legislative days in Dover, but nationwide – forget it. So, if I will give money to candidates this year, it will be only those with a proven track record and in local races – as for the other big shots — forget it.

PROVE TO ME that you are electable and that you will deliver legislation that is EQUAL – because different is not equal.

So the Republican's did it…

…and we cam all look forward for a Congress where nothing is going to get done.

Some of the polls had put Brown 6 percent ahead of the Democrat, and they were close. So by no way do I think it was a landslide, but still. Where did the Dems go wrong? I don’t thing I need to answer the question.. The Democratic Party fatigue has set in and people aren’t seeing the promised change. People who voted for the hope and change wanted it yesterday and it’s still not even visible on the horizon – and there aren’t any excuses that will convicne them that change is still ahead.

The party needs to really do something because I am afraid that this will not be the only upset. a 50% approval rting is NOT good enough. The conservative right is getting more and more organzied and if we don’t react to that and get our grassroots working for us, there will be tough times ahead. the alst thing we need is more Republicans stuffing mroe money into pockets that are already full of it and taking away from those who need it most.

A message from the World Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in response to the tragedy in Haiti

Published on January 18th, 2010no comments

The world is responding to the disaster in Haiti, and people around the world are coming together to help in any way they can. The animal victims of this disaster will desperately need help too, and animal welfare groups are joining forces to come to their aid.

Together, the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) and the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) will be working on the ground to help the animals in Haiti.

We have developed the Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti (ARCH) to assist in the response efforts, and all animal welfare organizations are invited to join ARCH and direct their financial support to the coalition.

Our teams will be working out of a mobile clinic which has been donated to us by the Antigua and Barbuda Humane Society. WSPA and IFAW have pledged funds to fully outfit this mobile clinic, and it will be shipped from Antigua to our member society, Sociedad Dominicana Para la Protección de Animales (SODOPRECA) in the Dominican Republic for them to drive across the border into Haiti.

When people join together, amazing things can happen. We’re asking you to join us now and donate to help the animals of Haiti and the thousands of other animals that will be affected by disasters to come.

The Catholic Diocese of Wilmington is at it again…….

Published on January 18th, 2010no comments

…as always protecting it’s priest and kicking the victims of the priest abuse in the ass. What else is new?

Francis DeLuca molested so many boys that he can’t even tell you how many. He admitted that much in his deposition last April. boys after bingo games, on a trip to Italy and in the den of his living quarters, he said in an April 2009 deposition. According to the News Journal, the bastard even said that ” The boys “liked it,” “. Supposedly he didn’t know it was a crime until he was arrested in 2006. What an ass.

Now here comes the “poor me” part of it all. DeLuca was stripped of his priestly status a year ago and is now destitute, living on $415 a month even though his rent is $500 a month. WHO CARES? Ship him off to some monastery for all I care. However, the attorney for the diocese, one Stephen Casarino, wants us to feel sorry for him, even though DeLuca faces 20 lawsuits against him for what he did. The attorney stated that “”He doesn’t have much of a life,” — well good, I hope he wakes up every day for the rest of his life remembering what he did to those kids. Oh yeah, and welcome to the real world – we all struggle to pay bills – he should have thought about that before he abused children that trusted him.

Here is the hammer though – the News Journal writes:

Now, the diocese, which was forced to file for bankruptcy in October under the weight of civil lawsuits alleging clergy sexual abuse by DeLuca and others, wants to pay about $10,000 a month in combined benefits to him and five others accused of abuse. The money would come from the diocese’s bankruptcy estate or pool of assets.

Bankruptcy lawyers say it is the first time a diocese in bankruptcy has asked permission from a federal court to provide benefits to priests accused of sexual abuse.

In DeLuca’s case, charity to the admitted abuser is a “corporal work of mercy,” similar to feeding the hungry, the diocese says in court documents. Because such charity is the normal business of the church, the diocese is asking the court to let it provide $548 a month in medical benefits to DeLuca.

OK, so not only did the Diocese file for Bankruptcy so that it doesn’t have to pay the victims all the money they may get awarded, but they also want to take even more money away from them by paying it to the priests that abused the children.

How about you just ship all those former priests off to some monastery and let them live out the rest of their lives in solitary and silence, serving the God that they supposedly love so much.

So…just a question…

If the teabaggers and Cray Eileens are getting organized because they realized that the Republicans do not stand for limited government anymore, just which parts of government do they want to limit? Which parts are they willing to give up even they have an effect on THEIR lives (and not just involve taking away from others).?.
