A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words?

me Over the years at Delaware Right, I have received both compliments, and criticism for my use of photos, and other visuals to communicate an idea, or message. Here are a few of my favorites. If you have any of your own, give me the title of the post they were used in and I will add them to this montage.  Fisker One of the earliest, Gov Markell hailing Fisker. We know how that ended.

idiots  This one is courtesy of our friends in the “Indpendent” Party of Delaware. This was taken back in 2013 to point out the misspelling, and yet the same Wolfgang was seen wearing the same shirt just this past year.

tea  I liked this one, because it summed up what I felt the real danger of the TEA movement was to our Liberty. Considering this recent election cycle, spot on baby.

Atkins Just because I like poking John Atkins, and in all honesty, he takes it well.

smoke filled room This one has been useful many times, most often for the shenanigans of the Sussex GOP Committee. They seem to like to close the doors for their more nefarious dealings.

Lacey walking This was the beginning of Lacey Lafferty’s long march to failure. The first leg of her walk the length of the state of Delaware. That was then Sheriff Jeff Christopher, who also lost his re-election bid.

Sam Jackson Everyone knows who this is, and it’s “Not Don Ayotte”.

Eric and Cindy “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”. Right Cindy Green?

vance “I’m sorry? she said I did what?”

Lacey unplugged  Well we knew this one had to make the cut. Got some of the best response for this one. But I guess after a long walk the length of the state, a girl just needs a shower.

tease Just because I like a good leg, and because I can.

NDA No words needed!

head up ass  This was from a dark period in my writing. This was a statement to how I felt about the Sussex GOP. Of course some assumed it was a selfie.

boil  Now this one, this one is for my good friend Steve Grossman. This drew more negative criticism than any other photo I have ever used. Not because I used it to compare the Sussex GOP to a festering boil on the ass of the Republican Party. But because it is just disgusting, I guess. I just keep thinking, why did they put that guacamole on that prime rib?

Matt  I wonder, do they have good cheese steaks in Kentucky? What? Too soon?

rieleyandcalabro John Riley, outgoing Chair of the Sussex GOP, passing the crap hammer to incoming Chair Vince Calabro.

chicken vince As you will see, I have a bit of a soft spot for chickens.

laceywalksdelaware Still walking.

lacey hair up morticia  I used these two side by side for obvious reasons. Come on now, that was funny.

bikiniYep! Just because I can.

Vince Waldo  Well we know where he isn’t. He isn’t the Chair of the Sussex GOP.

donald trump clown My favorite photo of Donald Trump.

Towel head frank Just so you know, I can laugh at myself. Well after writing a long blog post, a guy just needs a shower.

war on women Hey gals! Who’s fighting your battles now?

scrubbing Yep! Just because I can.

dr10.31.15deltidbitslaceygetssixtykdr10.31.15deltidbitsanthonydelcollo You figure it out.

Americans  Just in case I have to say it again.Americans

donald trump  Time will tell.

IMG_0669   We all have a little tin foil hat geek in us.

Billy Carroll  Seems the Sussex GOP has a habit of electing Chairman who disappear during tough times. This was the current Chair Billy Carroll.

Bob and me cartoon This guy, what can I say, not since Not Don Ayotte.

bob excited  Big Boy Bob Mitchell. He was so much fun.

dodge bob  And lest we forget, Chicken Bob Mitchell.

mitchell Everybody wants a party hat. Unfortunately, Bob was not invited to the party.

Well that pretty much does it. I have to admit, I was pulling from our media library and a couple of these may have been from other post than my own. But I hope this was a fun trip down memory lane.

I look forward to the next year for many reasons. I hope all the guest here at Delaware Right will continue to participate and enjoy the place we have created to allow all to be a part of the conversation.

May you all have a Happy New Year.

    I bet Wolf hasn’t washed that t-shirt since 2013 either.

  2. Honi Soit says:

    Thanks for the montage and the chuckles, Frank! Happy new year!

  3. Rick says:

    The left just has no sense of self-parody.

    I notice that you posted (twice) the image of some fool wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, carrying a placard enjoining people to not be “afraid” of, among other things, “other religions.”

    I guess this dupe just doesn’t know who Guy Fawkes was.

    Fawkes was a radical, violent Catholic who was part of a plot to assassinate James I and blow-up Parlament, in order to install an English Catholic State. Essentially, a Catholic ISIS.

    Instead of wasting his time protesting (and looking like a fool doing it) the guy- pun intended- carrying the sign should try reading a history book. At the end of the day, he is depicting the persona of a violent religious zealot as promoting the notion of religious tolerance. LOL

  4. Frank Knotts says:

    Rick, leave to the up tight alt-right to ignore the message and focus on the image. Kinda appropriate for this post I guess.
    But I am sure your realize the young people who have taken on the Guy Fawkes mask have done so not because of Fawkes himself, but for the character V from the graphic novel and movie V For Vendetta. Who was fighting against a totalitarian government, not for religious supremacy.

  5. Rick says:

    Rick, leave to the up tight alt-right to ignore the message and focus on the image.

    The title of this post is “one picture is worth a thousand words.” And I agree. It depicts a typical fawning “liberal” moron, demonstrating his talent for self-parody.

    But I am sure your realize the young people who have taken on the Guy Fawkes mask have done so not because of Fawkes himself, but for the character V from the graphic novel and movie V For Vendetta.

    Yes, I am.

    Who was fighting against a totalitarian government, not for religious supremacy.

    Yes, which is just another example of leftist self-parody. The fact is, the “V” character does wear a Guy Fawkes mask. And Fawkes was a religious zealot. That is reality.

    It’s sort of like the left’s fondness for “Che” t-shirts. Yes, I realize that the majority of people displaying the image of Castro’s premier murderer on their chests are doing so because they naively believe it represents “protest” or “revolution.” Most of them don’t even know who Che Guevarra was.

    A cultural whitewash doesn’t cover the bloodstains of Che or the religious fanaticism of Fawkes.

  6. mouse says:

    Where’s the sheriff ?

  7. Rick says:

    Speaking of leftist morons, how about this…from an individual whom, I’m sure, dutifully lobbied for the much more “qualified” Hillary Clinton during the campaign.

    Yes, the knowledgable, semi-coherent Lena Dunham:

    ….The “Girls” creator recounted visiting a Planned Parenthood in Texas several years ago where a young girl asked her to join a project where women share their stories of abortion.

    “I sort of jumped,” Dunham said. “‘I haven’t had an abortion,’ I told her. I wanted to make it really clear to her that as much as I was going out and fighting for other women’s options, I myself had never had an abortion.”

    It was then, Dunham said, she realized “Even I, the woman who cares as much as anybody about a woman’s right to choose, felt it was important that people know I was unblemished in this department.”

    She added, “Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.”

    I’m sure she’d adore a buffoon in a Guy Fawkes advocating religious tolerance.

  8. mouse says:

    Why do hate women? Makes it a lot harder to get laid..

  9. Honi Soit says:

    @Rick: “Most of them don’t even know who Che Guevarra was.”

    His death is a hoax. I know because I read it on a blog.

  10. Rick says:

    I think I’ll have some Stalin t-shirts printed up, to sell at next summers Democrat Jamobree.

  11. Rick says:

    Make that John C. Calhoun t-shirts.

    I’ll sell them in San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia and all of the rest of the self-proclaimed “sanctuary cities.”

    Like the State of South Carolina’s interpretation the 1828 Tariff Laws, and the resultant Ordinance of Nullification, Rahm Emmanuel and various mayors and politicians have declared their intent to ignore U.S. immigration statutes, and provide “sanctuary” to illegal aliens some of them- perhaps many of them- criminal aliens). Since these statutes have been duly enacted into law and have not been declared unconstitutional, they must be deemed in force.

    Hence, the cities or states choosing to openly ignore or even vociferously oppose such laws are, essentially, resorting to nullification.

    The incoming Attorney General must bring the full force of the Department of Justice- and the Office of the US Attorney in the appropriate jurisdictions- to bear upon those responsible for what is essentially the twin brother of secession.

    In the meantime, the incoming President of the United States should declare that until the nullification issue is resolved, states (including so-called “red states”) may be free to ignore any environmental law, education law, LSBT law and so on, again, until the issue of nullification is resolved.

  12. Rick says:

    Remember when Big Media obsessed with Bush’s Iraq War deaths? Sure, death is tragic, even when it involves soldiers who join the military knowing full well they may indeed pay the ultimate price. During the Bush administration, 4230 Americans lost their lives in Iraq.

    But where is Big Media on America’s other “war” zone- the city of Chicago? During the Obama administration, 3903 private citizens have been killed in Chicago, a city with draconian gun control laws.

    Of course, we can also include DC, New Orleans, Baltimore, Atlanta and so on, and really run the numbers up.

    It’s odd that states with high firearm ownership (by percent) generally have low gun murder rates; Maine, NH, SD, MN, WVA, IA, ND, ID, VT.

    Washington DC, with a very low gun ownership rate, has an astronomically high gun murder rate.

    Is there another component to the gun violence problem?

    The states with the highest per-capita gun murder rates- DC, LA, MO, SC, DE, GA, MS, TN, ARK, MD- are generally among the states with the highest black populations (percent)- DC, MS, LA, GA, MD, SC, AL, NC, DE.

    And the same trend is apparent in our major urban centers.

  13. Honi Soit says:

    Just read that 50% of Trump supporters believe that HRC operates a child-sex ring out of a pizzeria. This according to a poll from The Economist/YouGov. There’s better than a 50-50 chance Rick does, I’m guessing.

  14. mouse says:

    The problem with most right wingers is that they have no capacity to discern reality from what they want to believe. No critical analysis, no self reflection, just self righteous mean spirited parroted dogma

  15. Rick says:

    This is what passes for a response. A bunch of nonsense.A lame attempt at diversion from reality via irreverence.

    I guess it doesn’t occur to you that your obfuscation amounts to tacit acquiescence.

  16. fightingbluehen says:

    Yes, there are many so called liberals who expect and acquiesce to the murder rate in places like Chicago.
    They have written off an entire segment of the population, and basically imply that the only thing that can keep them from killing each other is to deny them the instruments to do so,(and they can’t even do that)…… It’s “the soft bigotry of low expectations”

    If some pollster called me up and asked if I believed that Hillary Clinton was “operating a child-sex ring out of a pizzeria”, I would say “yes”, just because the person was stupid enough to ask me that question.

  17. mouse says:

    One of your friends in NY went to the alleged pizza sex place with an AK 47. You people want to believe the most malicious lies possible to justify your bigoted ideology

  18. Rick says:

    Name calling doesn’t change reality.

    Failing to enforce the law is, essentially, nullification. Straight from John C. Calhoun. And solidarity by intent on the part of various jurisdictions- the intent not to enforce immigration laws- is tantamount to secession.

    Blacks commit murder at a rate 7X that of other races in the US.

    So. If ND, SD, NE and so on want to build a pipeline, go ahead. EPA laws don’t need to be followed.

    And instead of disarming the law abiding majority, let’s disarm black men.

    “Rick is a racist!”

    I thought the left wanted an “open, honest dialogue” on race? Well, the almost inconceivable level of black violence is a good place to start.

  19. mouse says:

    When will white on white murder end

  20. mouse says:

    Why is it so important to you people to always obsess on issues with other races and cultures? I would be more concerned about the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of uneducated old white men

  21. Bluebolt says:


    What do you mean by ” the photo is for …. Grossman ” ? It is a picture of GROSSman.

  22. delacrat says:

    ” I would be more concerned about the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of uneducated old white men.” – mouse


    It’s not the uneducated we need to be most concerned about.

    The uneducated don’t generally get elected or make CEO.

    So the uneducated were not those who have made all the important decisions that have run the country and planet into the ground.

  23. Honi Soit says:

    Rick, do you still think that the African cannot live in civilized society?

  24. fightingbluehen says:

    “You people want to believe the most malicious lies possible to justify your bigoted ideology.”

    I don’t know which “you people” you are referring to, but I’m pretty sure, although it’s pretty apparent that Hillary Clinton is pretty sleazy, no one in here really thinks that she was “operating a child-sex ring out of a pizzeria”.

    Maybe you are watching too much MSNBC.

  25. mouse says:

    You people know who you are lol

  26. mouse says:

    Well that is true but I think it is mostly the uneducated who have elected most of those who have enable the robber baron class. Although “liberals” like Clinton and Obama have done little to address the issue with too much money and power concentrated at the top

  27. Rick says:

    96% of blacks voted for Obama. Imagine if 96% of whites voted for the white candidate.

    In time, that’s exactly what will happen. By necessity. Because that’s what happens when a once-unified country becomes Balkanized. African-American. Hispanics. People of color. The disenfranchised. The LGBT community, and all of the rest of the sub-groups categorized and targeted by the Socialist-Democrats.

    Promote tribalism, and that’s exactly what you’ll get. I just look farther ahead than most of you.

  28. Honi Soit says:

    Rick, I asked a few postings up if you still think the African cannot live in civilized society. That was what you wrote about three years ago on a different blog.

  29. Rick says:

    Congratulations Chicago. 762 murders in 2016!

    Looks like the Socialist-Democrats’ gun control laws in Chicago work as well as in Washington….Baltimore….New Orleans…

    A gun is an inanimate object. A person has to pull the trigger.

  30. Honi Soit says:

    Ok Rick. It’s clear from your side-stepping of my question that you do think still that “the African cannot live in civilized society” as you wrote three years ago in another blog.

    You also wrote that our schools have been dumbed down to accommodate Africans, that they could still take over, and that if that day comes then whites will be exterminated.

    Explains your vote more than any of your high-minded talk of the dangers of statism.

  31. Rick says:

    I wonder how many black babies Planned Parenthood killed in Chicago in 2016?

    Along with the 762 murders, it might qualify as genocide…especially if one adds-in the same numbers in Washington, New Orleans, Baltimore, Atlanta and so on. Aren’t all those cities run by Democrats?

    Heck, between Planned Parenthood and Socialist-Democrat politicians, maybe Margaret Sanger’s plan to eliminate society’s “burdens” will come to fruition.

    As for me, I haven’t killed anyone.

  32. Honi Soit says:

    And Rick, it was you who also wrote on another blog that every “inept African-American should be offered the chance to become ‘African’ by way of a free passage to the utopian mother continent.”

    But no free passage to “inept” Whites? No racism resides in Rick. Not even a soupçon.

  33. Rick says:

    It’s funny, it’s all about me. What’s with the fixation? Please, seek counselling.

    But it doesn’t matter if I’m the Grand Wizard of the KKK (like former Democrat Senator Robert Byrd). The numbers I cited were FBI numbers. Obama’s FBI. And blacks are seven times more likely to kill than are whites. Period.

    And there were 762 murders in Chicago in 2016. Fact.

    Blacks voted for BO at a rate of over 96%. Fact.

    Black inner cities are disaster areas. Violent crime, murder, welfare and illiteracy. Fact.

    I’m sorry that the facts don’t fit your “liberal” narrative. Tough.

    A brief word from the world of The Dark Enlightenment, Foseti…

    In much of the Western world, in stark contrast [to first world Asian cities], barbarism has been normalized. It is considered simply obvious that cities have ‘bad areas’ that are not merely impoverished, but lethally menacing to outsiders and residents alike. Visitors are warned to stay away, whilst locals do their best to transform their homes into fortresses, avoid venturing onto the streets after dark, and – especially if young and male — turn to criminal gangs for protection, which further degrades the security of everybody else. Predators control public space, parks are death traps, aggressive menace is celebrated as ‘attitude’, property acquisition is for mugs (or muggers), educational aspiration is ridiculed, and non-criminal business activity is despised as a violation of cultural norms. Every significant mechanism of socio-cultural pressure, from interpreted heritage and peer influences to political rhetoric and economic incentives, is aligned to the deepening of complacent depravity and the ruthless extirpation of every impulse to self-improvement. Quite clearly, these are places where civilization has fundamentally collapsed, and a society that includes them has to some substantial extent failed.


  34. Honi Soit says:

    Racists don’t vote for blacks. Fact. Misogynists don’t vote for women. Fact. That’s my narrative and I’m sticking to it.

  35. delacrat says:

    “A brief word from the world of The Dark Enlightenment, Foseti…” – rick


    Will you always be a devotee of Foseti, the Friscian god of Justice, Peace and Truth, or do you intend to grow up one day ?

  36. Rick says:

    Congraduations, Chicago. Fifty-four shot during the first four days of January.

    Oh well, only seven died.

    Will you always be a devotee of Foseti, the Friscian god of Justice, Peace and Truth, or do you intend to grow up one day ?….delacrat

    Very good, Pavlov’s dog. Attack the messenger, not the content. Too bad it doesn’t work, but it does demonstrate “liberal” knee-jerk fatuity. Again.

    “Foseti” is a handle, like “delacrat.” Have you no sense of self-parody whatsoever?

    Now, let’s look at content; is there a part or parts of the excerpt of his essay that you believe to be inaccurate? Or, like any good little “liberal” lemming, is hysteria your only means of debate?

    You should change your handle to “Stalin.” Airbrush reality, and therefore it doesn’t exist.

  37. mouse says:

    Weak mean spirited uneducated angry old white men have always scapegoated their own pathetic moral and intellectual failings by attacking weak oppressed minorities. It’s an old trick.

  38. mouse says:

    I thought Stalinist Putin was a hero and our friend?

  39. Rick says:

    Did our “liberal” Socialist-Democrat friends enjoy the video from Chicago, where several black people kidnapped and tortured a learning disabled kid for a couple of days? Nice, huh?

    Throw them in a cage with the rest of the animals.

  40. delacrat says:

    “Did our “liberal” Socialist-Democrat friends enjoy the video from Chicago,…” – rick

    How did you enjoy it ?

  41. Henry says:

    Frank you forgot something. A picture perhaps?

    The picture of you getting fired from your previous job BC of your lack of attention when driving the company vehicle which was nothing more than the straw that broke the camel’s back.
    Your previous employer was sick and tired of your constant problems which filled your profile file. They made the right decision to can your fledgling ass.
    You weren’t worth the trouble of employment. Which by the way you aren’t worth the trouble of anything.

  42. Rick says:

    “Did our “liberal” Socialist-Democrat friends enjoy the video from Chicago,…” – rick

    How did you enjoy it ?

    What kind of a question is that?

    Sorry that the video doesn’t fit your “white man is racist” narrative.

    I grew-up in Washington DC, and not on Foxhall Road or Georgetown. I know that there are black racists. Plenty of them.

    You’re probably a typical “liberal” pushover- literally and figuratively. I’m not. If you want to fall for the
    “all whites are racist” crap, be my guest. That’s the only thing that keeps the Socialist-Democrat Party on the map, and keeps the black community on the Plantation.

    “BLM is the KKK…BLM is the KKK…BLM is the KKK,,,,”

  43. Frank Knotts says:

    Henry, recognize the only reason you know anything about my personal life is because I am honest and open and took complete responsibility for my actions right here. But feel free to continue to throw that stone since I am sure you are without sin.

  44. Henry says:

    There is one thing you are NOT and that is honest.
    You don’t know the meaning unless you look it up in the dictionary.

    What you are is devious. You just explain away your opinion(s) of the event(s) in your view before the other side responds with the facts as if the distortion of said facts will some how change in your favor. By which according to your records it never does showing all that you really don’t know what hell your doing or talking about.
    You then attempt to distort said facts to sway public opinion of the event(s) to gain leverage on whomever or whatever is taking place.

  45. Frank Knotts says:

    Slow down Henry, your writing reflects your thinking. Disconnected and without forethought. So I guess being the evil genius that I am, allowing you and others to come here and also speak your thought on issues and events from your perspective is also part of my deviousness. Right?

  46. Henry says:

    Frank you just can’t keep up.

  47. Frank Knotts says:

    That’ll be the day.

  48. Rick says:

    I notice that Cong. Black Caucus member Lacy Clay has re-hung a painting depicting police officers as pigs, confronting “peacefull” black protesters. He claims that it’s a “First Amendment issue.”

    Maybe someone should hang a painting depicting blacks picking cotton in a field, with the women in the background slicing watermelons.

  49. mouse says:

    Do you ever self reflect on why you are so obsessed with attacking black people? Do civil rights make you feel insecure? I mean, I know old angry uneducated white guys are hearing foot steps coming for their white privilege but I would be embarrassed to prop myself up by attacking people weaker than myself.

  50. Frank Knotts says:

    Mouse, not to defend Rick’s views of black people, but could you explain to me what you mean by, “but I would be embarrassed to prop myself up by attacking people weaker than myself.”
    In what way are black people weaker than anyone else?

  51. mouse says:

    Fair question. I don’t mean inherently, but its pretty obvious and documented that black people have been oppressed for the past 400 years or so as well as having negative statistics in nearly every measurable parameter such as poverty rates, infant mortality, disease, premature death, home ownership, denial of loans, lack of inheritance, violence against et al.

Got something to say? Go for it!
