    If you can’t out debate them you must delete them. The new rule of DR.

  2. HIPO says:

    It’s “Rainbows and Lollypops”.

  3. Frank Knotts says:

    Exactly what are you debating here Moabite? There is nothing here but a video. What you don’t like the video? Does it remind you of something? Come on, use your words for something other than sticking your tongue out at the world.

    Ref: Moabite, a descendent of Lot:

    “No Ammonite or Moabite may enter the assembly of the Lord. Even to the tenth generation, none of them may enter the assembly of the Lord forever, because they did not meet you with bread and with water on the way, when you came out of Egypt, and because they hired against you Balaam the son of Beor from Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse you.” Deuteronomy 23

    The Moabites disappeared from history in 582 BC, only somehow to reappear on DR in 2014 AD. Praise be! Or not.

  5. Honi Soit says:

    My take on this hilarious and insightful clip: Pappy is the incumbent, who represents the status quo. Stokes is his challenger, who represents reform. Both need to appeal to the average voter to win the election, but Stokes has become a threat to Pappy because he portrays himself as one of the little guys while attacking Pappy as part of an entrenched elite. Pappy knows this and thinks that his problem is merely one of perception. Change the voters’ perception of him and he wins the election. It’s all about how a candidate is perceived, not about reality.

    @Honi Soit

    You have a keen understanding of the reality of election politics. Unlike the puppet that Jeff cragg and Steve GROSSman are utilizing. Winning an election is all about perception and name recognition, MOST of the public only understands the reality presented to them, right or wrong.
    Lately they have been deceived and the reality of Delaware Right will only hit them in the face when they realize what a lie they’ve been told by the elitists with money that would control their destiny.

  7. Frank Knotts says:

    Moabite, it would seem as though we are in agreement about the content of the video. The remaining question is, if we were to compare this video to real life politics here in Delaware and Sussex, who would the elite, or status quo be?

  8. Moabite says:


    I don’t listen to your words but, instead what you have portrayed in your actions. Your actions betray you for who you are. You supported movements against the Delaware Constitution by actively campaigning against Sheriff Christopher. You helped Steve Smyk run a filthy campaign against Constitutionally based candidate Don Ayotte, by placing disgusting signs in the 20th District. You attack practicing conservative Christians without hesitation, while professing to be a Christian yourself.
    The list goes on and on but I’m sure you get the idal. Those backing you and paying for this site claim to be “moving Delaware forward,” another erroneous claim.
    Yes Frank, if a person looks and analyzes you and this website’s actions, they must come to only one conclusion. You guy aren’t moving anything forward, instead you are slipping Delaware ever so slowly toward socialism.

    Sanity check

    It has allways been my experiance that when the discussion goes to the abstract, i.e. the eletists,zionists,status quo,blue bloods. It is because they have allready lost the game. The conversation has to be shifted to ” the great conspiracy ” to explain their short commings, or lack of performance.

    I am reminded of an old addage I was taught as a child. ” never bring a pocket knife to a archery contest “

    Why do people think paying for a blog site is expensive?

  11. waterpirate says:

    Here is a start on the Wed. open thread.

    With the elrctions for the SCGOP EC looming, I have not heard a whisper about any of it. Not very transparent IMHO. I went to the web site, and as allways was struck with the number of vacancies in the EC. To me that indicates that the ongoing lunacy is still being driven by the few who are most vocal. Will tollerance and positive growth win out this time, or are we to suffer another term filled with hypocrisy and purity oaths?

    One of the things that pollutes the Sussex EC is the fact that many of them are on a fixed income, and have lost or never had a grip on how the world really works, or what it costs. They are just insistant that the worlds clock be reset to 1950, which I guess was a time of naive happiness for them. Never mind the problems that existed then.

    Why is it that you always feel you must defend NOT FRANK KNOTTS. (Edited for content. Frank Knotts)

    You’ve just grossed out Steve GROSSman and that’s no mean feat.

    I thought that was a Tea Party activity. 🙂

  15. Moabite says:

    No it’s a Progressive Liberal trait. You must know that.

  16. Cynic Acid says:

    The moral of the story is

    Tell the TRUTH.
    LOSE the Election.

    Candidates have been BSing the voters for centuries and most Delaware politicians fit the rotten mold to a tee, with a unique corporate plantation twist. The Delaware Way really stinks as our brain dead economic development policies and public corruption attest.

  17. pandora says:

    Oh my. Sorry to hear about your limited sex life, Moabite.

  18. Cobra says:

    IT looks like the blight’s on Delaware Right.

    @CynicAcid: “The Delaware Way really stinks as our brain dead economic development policies and public corruption attest.”

    24/7WallSt just released it annual ranking of the best-run states. Delaware is 13th best. And here is why:

    Debt per capita: $6,262 (7th highest)
    Credit Rating (S&P/Moody’s): AAA/Aaa
    2013 unemployment rate: 6.7% (23rd lowest)
    Median household income: $57,846 (15th highest)
    Poverty rate: 12.4% (13th lowest)

    Delaware is among the minority of states with perfect credit ratings from both Moody’s and S&P, with Moody’s citing the state’s exceptional management and a history of maintaining large reserves. Moody’s also identified two challenges for the state: a large debt burden relative to the population and potential exposure to declining activity in the financial sector. As of fiscal year 2012, Delaware had $6,262 in gross debt per capita, among the highest rates in the nation. Additionally, more than 42% of Delaware’s GDP came from the finance, insurance, real estate and rental industries in 2013, which also accounted for 1.2 percentage points of the state’s 1.6% GDP growth.

    I merely point out the obvious to those children who can not participate in the disscussion except for hurling insults and trying to be clever. As for Frank, my complaint with him is only that he is not, or will not step to the plate on the rules he posted and delete you scholars from further participation.

  21. RINO Hunter says:

    The reason that the GOP is dying is that the party eats its young , real political talent is hard to find in Delaware and it’s run more like a street gang than a party.

    In a stagnant pond, the SCUM floats to the top.

    What’s left is a wasteland like Delaware Right and its KOOL AID drinkers in a backstabbing brain dead environment who think that they are Republican leaders, when in reality, they are merely pawns. This is a recipe for political disaster, as the turkeys have come home to roost as a once grand party unravels.

  22. Frank Knotts says:

    Rino hunter that is a legitimate point. And while you may see DR as the ones eating their own, there are those who have just as legitimate a complaint who feel that the far right has done a fair amount of munching themselves.
    It may be the intolerance from both sides that leads to feasting.

  23. fightingbluehen says:

    “The reason that the GOP is dying is that the party eats its young , real political talent is hard to find in Delaware and it’s run more like a street gang than a party.”

    When did the GOP start dying in Delaware? It wasn’t when the GOP ate it’s young. It was when a bunch of old men were smitten.
    *(SMITTEN-marked by foolish or unreasoning fondness)

  24. RINO Hunter says:

    It’s more like political cannibalism and early onset Alzheimers Disease.
    There is no known cure.

  25. Frank Knotts says:

    Very true.

  26. waterpirate says:

    You can not have it both ways. So which is it? Is this blog irrellavant? Or was this blog single handedly responsible for the losses last cycle? Me thinks you give this blog too much credit while running from the responsability of your own demise.

    The crazy’s are running the EC, so what legitimate beef do you have from those of us who are not in the EC? The question remains. Which way is the pendulum going to swing?

    In case you missed it. I am calling you out to enforce the rules you felt need to post. If you do not, this blog is destined for the same fate as the other one.
    Insults and personal attacks really are the last bastian of the weak of mind and poor upbringing.

  27. Frank Knotts says:

    I thank all of my shadow editors. I am working today and may have missed some of the children’s bad behavior. It would also help if we did not play along with them and don’t repeat their trash. This will be a process to weed them out, I am asking for the adult’s help and patience.

  28. Rino Hunter says:

    Anything less than the top five is nothing to brag about

  29. Rat Fink says:

    The surveyWS24/7 survey indicates that Delaware’s economy is skewed by the finance and real estate sectors. It still has a poor small business climate and declining manufacturing sector with agriculture recessive in the long run. This is coupled with poor energy and education policies — not a formula for outstanding economic growth.

  30. waterpirate says:

    Poor small business climate? I disagree. The state is starved for liscensed blue collar workers and business startups, The current administration as well as the many before it seem to care little about the people who are actually doing the skilled work. That is untill your bridge goes all out of whack.

  31. Cynic Acid says:

    That’s because they think that they are aristocrats.

Got something to say? Go for it!
