McGuire's Gone Wild In Delmar

Hi Delmar citizens, my name is Nicole McGuire and I want to be the mayor of Delmar, MD. I am sure you all know that I filed for commissioner in the last election and withdrew my name. I was at the time lead to believe it would be beneficial for the election, by the powers that be or were at that time.

I think I would be a fresh breathe of air to the political machine in Delmar, MD.

The position I currently hold does not allow discussion. When I was hired documents had to signed as to the privacy of the company itself. However, I have lived in the area five years and have worked for this company over three of the five years. So there is no question on my "stay the course" attitude.

I am a Mom of two, one in Delmar Elementary and a Freshman in Wicomico High School.

The thing that I want to see more than anything else, is the forward momentum of the town of Delmar. It is my sincere hope that as mayor, I could aid the town in future improvements without hindering the delicious small town appeal that so many of us recognize as Delmar.

On the other hand, here's her husband/boyfriend Tom McGuire. Now Tom is the guy that called WalMart Corporate and told them he had just seen me ringing the bell for the Salvation Army at Sam's Club. He claimed that when an interracial couple walked out the door, Joe called them a N-Word Loving Whore.

Tom went on to brag about his doing this and then pounded his chest after WalMart asked that I be removed from ringing the bell there. Of course, this plummeted the income for the Salvation Army and now Tom wants to be your next Town Commissioner.

Here's a reminder to ALL of you about the McGuire clan.

"Joe , hi this is Nicole toms wife . I'm sorry if you took offense to my comment on Brooke mumford ,I don't apologize for it just that you were offended by it . The sad fact is she is going to die period . When is not for me to say that is gods hand or destiny ."
The big question is, does Delmar really want such unstable people running their local government?
The decision, (of course) lies in the hands of the voters. However, IF the McGuire's think this is the only post we'll be doing throughout their ridiculous campaign they'd be sadly mistaken. This is just the beginning.
Don't you ever say you have not been warned. In a conversation I had yesterday about the McGuire's I kind of chuckled and said, well, if they were to win, think of all the fun I'd have over the next 4 years.


The U.S. Postal Service may lose $10 billion in the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, more than it had predicted, as mail volume continues to drop, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said in testimony for a Senate hearing.

The loss will leave the Washington-based service unable to make required payments to the federal government and puts it at risk of default as it reaches its $15 billion borrowing limit, Donahoe said in testimony prepared for the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing today.

“We are at a critical juncture,” Donahoe, who is also the service’s chief executive officer, wrote in his testimony. “Action from Congress is sorely needed by the close of this fiscal year.”

The Postal Service, which Donahoe predicts may lose $9 billion next year, is asking Congress to let it break union contracts to fire workers, loosen a requirement to pay now for future retirees’ health-benefit costs and end mail delivery on Saturdays.

Mail volume will decrease 2 percent from last year, marking the fifth consecutive year of declines, Donahoe said in the testimony. Mail volume has dropped 22 percent since 2006. The service previously predicted a $9 billion annual loss.


White House’s 9/11 Anniversary Guidelines Ask Officials To ‘Minimize References To Al Qaeda’

The White House has provided guidelines to government officials regarding how to observe and discuss the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. While there are certainly some beneficial recommendations held within, some may interpret the disseminated documents as more agenda-driven than not.
These instructions include information about how to honor the lives lost here in America. Additionally, they call for remembrance of the fact that Al Qaeda and other terror groups have also killed innocent individuals in other localities across the globe.

Education Reform Coming To The Suburbs

All school districts will begin a transition to new standards and teacher evaluation system

As the school year finally gets under way, public school students across the state will be writing more often and learning to think differently in math class, as the state begins major education reforms that will change everything from the curriculum to the way teachers are evaluated.

While some of the changes — which districts agreed to make in exchange for more federal funding — have faced resistance from teachers, others have already been embraced in classrooms.


Less Than Half Of Stimulus Jobs Went To Unemployed, Study Finds

Only about 43% of all jobs created by projects funded by the $787 billion federal stimulus bill went to people who were unemployed, according to a new study from the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. The rest of the jobs, according to the study, went to people who were already employed elsewhere, were just out of college, or were not part of the labor force. Job-switchers got about 47% of all of the jobs created by the stimulus package, the study states.

USPS Wants Immediate Control

The U.S. Postal Service could lose up to $10 billion a year, and may go broke by the end of this month.

That's what Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe is expected to tell Congress this morning when he testifies before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. The Postal Service has been working to get lawmakers to grant them the legal authority to change delivery schedules, close postal offices and possibly lay off hundreds of thousands of workers.

Don't Threaten The SSA

The Social Security Administration plans to ban threatening people from its offices. A proposed rule lists four reasons for a ban: The person might have verbally assaulted SSA employees, threatened them with violence, disrupted their work or interfered with office operations. Commissioner Michael Astrue says banned people would be kept from all Social Security offices nationwide. Under the rule, now open for comment, SSA would notify people in writing that they're no longer allowed to set foot on SSA premises. Last year threats against Social Security personnel rose 43 percent to a total of two thousand, eight hundred.

God Bless America?

All too often we see and read about how the United States fronts billions of dollars over time to other countries for foreign aid. We hear about the homeless right here in America. Every so often we hear about those "Tent Cities" popping up around the country but it stops and is forgotten by the MSM because it isn't what our politicians want Americans to see.

The images you are seeing above were taken TODAY right here in Salisbury. I'll not disclose the location as I do not want them being confronted by the Mayor or the Police. The vast amount of people living in this Tent City do have permission from the property owner to be there.

The American Dream has been long forgotten once you follow the path and take the time to sit down with these kind people. Down on their luck is putting it mildly. When I asked what kind of work each individual did, some came back saying they were painters and in the construction field in general. One of the people I spoke with stated he had to pop up a tent after he lost his job at Allen Food.

One of the residents has been living back there for more than a year now. Others have been there for a month or so. The victims aren't just men, they are women as well. I was told a Preacher visits this Tent City once a week on Saturday's. It truly seemed to be one of the highlights of our conversation.

When asked, if there was a message you wanted others to hear about, what would it be. The reply, "Hang In There." I won't sit here and try to impress upon our readers that these are fine and upstanding citizens, yet I also won't try to imply that they aren't. I'm sure some of this involves alcohol and drugs. However, many are simply down on their luck and cannot survive in this economy.

These images truly represent what millions of Americans could be facing being that one paycheck away from survival. Today we're hearing about the stock market taking yet another major beating. For weeks we have been reading about President Obama preparing a speech about his plan for new jobs in America.

However, for ME, he started that speech when he was running for President. He talked about stimulating those out of work by rebuilding our infrastructure and roads, it failed! America has intense issues on our hands but again the MSM doesn't make issues like this one important because they want YOU to believe we're just fine. Keep shopping, eating out, buying cars, you name it. However, reality in most cases is just one paycheck away in what I feel is the worst economy this country has ever seen.

So what do we do from here. How do we reunite the lost America we were raised to know and love. Let me go one step further, because I think this is more important. What do we do RIGHT NOW to help those of which our Mayor doesn't want you to know or see. You see Folks, there are Tent Cities all across Salisbury and Wicomico County. Most of the time these people are on private property and are forced to pack their belonging, (if they're lucky enough to actually be there when the law shows up to send them packing) and many have lost what little they had left behind.

I have been told by law enforcement that their belongings are stored at the police department but how do these people get there to collect their things. How can they prove what is theirs. Salisbury and Wicomico County doesn't have the proper shelters so they treat, (with all due respect) the homeless like prostitutes by pushing them away in the hopes they'll follow the train tracks and eventually go away. It should be noted, (with all due respect) that there are several fine shelters locally that do a very fine job.

Perhaps the Faith driven community is unaware of just how large of a problem Wicomico County is facing. Here's what I can tell you. I doubt very seriously that the majority of you reading this article wouldn't have the stones enough just to take that journey deep into the woods with the unknown that lies ahead to see for yourselves just what's going on out there. Clearly the MSM hasn't done so. That's cool. However, I have done so and what I can tell you is that I was very pleased to meet these people and my hope is that we can, (in whatever shape or form) help the less unfortunate.

You sit back and think about it for a few minutes. Just how far away are you from losing your home if you lost your job tomorrow. Folks, we're that close to either depending on our families for help and support and or pulling out a tent that probably has cob webs on it because we used it back in the day to go camping with the kids, never thinking this could be your next residence.

Wake Up America, this is very real.

"Black Widow" Of Eating: 183 Wings In 12 Minutes


BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The "Black Widow" of eating contests scarfed down 183 chicken wings in 12 minutes to break her own world record set last year in Buffalo, N.Y.

Sonya Thomas took home first place Sunday at the tenth annual National Buffalo Wings Festival. She beat fellow competitive eating marvel Joey "Jaws" Chestnut, who came in second with 174 wings.

The two won titles at the July Fourth hot dog eating contest on Coney Island.


Temple Student Recovering After Shooting

A Temple University student is expected to recover after exchanging gunfire with a would-be robber in North Philadelphia.

The shattered glass on the front door testifies to the shootout near 12th and Dauphin early Monday morning.

21-year-old Rob Eells, a Temple University junior from Doylestown, fought back during a holdup attempt. His girlfriend, who doesn't want to be identified, says Rob and his roommate were having a smoke on the front stoop around 1:45 this morning.


Thousands Evacuated As Wildfire Destroys More Than 1,000 Homes In Texas

More than 1,000 homes have burned in at least 57 wildfires across rain-starved Texas, most of them in one devastating blaze close to Austin that's still raging out of control, officials said Tuesday.

The Texas Forest Service said nearly 600 of the torched homes were in Bastrop County, some 25 miles from Austin. The agency said that blaze was still uncontained Tuesday. Fanned in part by howling winds from the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee, the blaze rapidly grew Tuesday to at least 30,000 acres.


Ford At Greater Risk Of Strike After Avoiding Bailout Money

It may seem a cruel irony that the one U.S. automaker that took no bailout money is now at greater risk of a national strike as it continues labor negotiations with union leaders.

Based upon initial tallies last week, rank and file Ford United Auto Worker members were leaning overwhelmingly toward a national strike authorization against their employer. With the current national labor contracts set to expire September 14 at General Motors, Chrysler and Ford, local union representatives at Ford were reporting 97 percent of their membership was voting to authorize a strike, if necessary.


Gotta Watch: Kid Drivers

There are bad drivers. There are "beary" bad drivers and then there are kid drivers. You read that correctly - children getting behind the wheel and hitting the roadway years before they're legally allowed to do so. You've gotta watch these tiny drivers get behind the wheel and see what happens next.

A family drive - The whole family hops into the car for this seven-year-old's country drive. With mom and baby unbuckled in the back and dad filming the littlest driver in the front, the boy steers his away along the road.

Did Wicomico County Hire A Second States Attorney?

While many have stated they would love to clone Sheriff Mike Lewis, I really don't think Matt Maciarello has done anything yet to the caliber of a Mike Lewis, yet he does have one up on Mike, he's got two spaces recently converted at the GOB for personal parking.

There were two meters in this location and as I know the former States Attorney Davis Ruark tried for more than 20 years to get a single space for his vehicle, former Mayor Barrie Tilghman wouldn't have any of it.

I personally think they should close off that parking lot to any and all City and County Executive level employees, police officers and leave only handicap parking for the general public. They did build a garage across the street and they do have a two hour free parking lot.

Will there be a sign going up soon for two spaces for the County Executive? You could say one is for parking and the other is for ego. LOL

Fate Of Frisky's 22 Monkeys At Stake In Board Of Appeals Case

The fate of about two dozen monkeys at Frisky's Wildlife and Primate Sanctuary in Woodstock is nearing a conclusion after more than a decade of legal battles.

In 1999, following an anonymous complaint, county zoning officials cited Frisky's owner Colleen Layton for operating a charity without the appropriate zoning exception. In 2004, the Howard County Board of Appeals granted her the zoning exception under the condition she got rid of the roughly 30 monkeys she housed at Frisky's.

Though some have since died, 22 monkeys remain at Frisky's, while the sanctuary has spent the past seven years fighting the board's decision.


Romney Unveils Economic Plan Tuesday

(NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev.) — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Tuesday will call for lowering the corporate tax rate and eliminating capital gains taxes for middle-class Americans as part of a plan to try to lift the struggling economy as well as create jobs.

Romney will detail 59 specific proposals aimed at fixing the nation's stubbornly high unemployment rate, now at 9.1 percent. He gave a broad outline of his 160-page plan in a Tuesday morning opinion piece in USA Today and was to speak later in the day at McCandless International Trucks.


Man Killed In Plane Collision With Girlfriend


ANCHORAGE, Alaska - A pilot was communicating by radio with her boyfriend before their planes collided in the air over Alaska last week, killing him, a federal investigator said.

The two pilots took off from different western Alaska villages Friday but met up in the air on the way to Bethel, Alaska, National Transportation Safety Board investigator Clint Johnson told the Anchorage Daily News Sunday.

Kristen Sprague, 26, was flying a Cessna 207 operated by rural freight carrier Ryan Air, according to Alaska State Troopers. She made an emergency landing with one airplane wing seriously damaged and wasn't hurt.

The other plane, a Cessna 208 Caravan, crashed and burst into flames Friday at about 1:30 p.m. local time near the village of Nightmute, Alaska, about 400 miles (640 kilometers) west of Anchorage, Alaska, killing Scott Veal, 24, of Kenai, Alaska. Each was the only person onboard.

He'll become a senior adviser. Rollins' deputy, David Polyansky, is leaving the campaign.

21-Foot Monster Crocodile Caught

The croc was captured in Agusan del Sur marsh on the southern Philippine island of Mindinao, according to a report on GMA News. Hunters had been trying to capture it for 21 days, the report said. It was finally captured on Saturday by a team of about 30 men who used meat to bait it and an eight millimeter metal cable to snare it, according to an Agence-France Presse report on ABS.CBN News.

I'd never_______!

This Is Why We Internationalize. This Is Why We Have A Plan

A few hundred years ago, some rather courageous men and women decided that they’d had enough of living under someone else’s rule– that the right of self-determination was stronger than any benefit or protection from living under a corrupt government.

The US Declaration of Independence eloquently posed the colonists’ grievances against King George III, including among others, that he had:

“erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance;”

“obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers;”
“[deprived] us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury”

The Constitution was supposed to address all of these grievances as the Founding Fathers sought to create a government where no single branch or office had too much power. Even to this day, US government officials swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies– foreign and domestic.

My guess is that most of them haven’t bothered to read it.


Sinepuxent Receipts - 09/06/2011

Another summer treat enjoyed by many is Hokey Pokey. A friend from work shared his favorite version. I would suggest serving them in a sealable sandwich bag as they have a tendency to melt fast.


Hokey Pokey

1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk

¼ tsp. cream of tartar

2 cups milk

1 can Big Red Soda

Beat together the first two ingredients very well with wire whisk attachment. Slowly blend in milk and soda and then pour in 9” square pan. Freeze solid; cut into squares. Then wrap in waxed paper and return to freezer until served.

Another variation is substituting a can of Cream Soda for the Big Red Soda.

Tom Clarke is the author of “Sinepuxent Receipts, A Personal Collection of Eastern Shore Cooking.  Tom lives in Hebron.  When not cooking for friends or developing new recipes (“receipts”), Tom sings in the choir at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church.  All profits from the sale of “Sinepuxent Receipts go to the St. Peter’s Church Organ Fund.

'Obama Is No Longer The Favorite To Win Re-election'

Obama hits all-time lows, according to NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll

President 'is no longer the favorite to win re-election,' Democratic pollster says

When Barack Obama unveils his jobs and economic plan to a joint session of Congress on Thursday, he'll do so at the lowest point of his presidency, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

After the bruising debt-ceiling fight — as well as Standard & Poor's subsequent downgrade of the nation's credit rating — Obama's job approval rating has sunk to a low of 44 percent, a 3-point drop since July. His handling of the economy stands at a low of 37 percent. And only 19 percent believe the country is headed in the right direction, the lowest mark for this president.

Perhaps most ominously for Obama, a majority of poll takers — 54 percent — think he's facing a longer-term setback from which he's unlikely to recover. Back in January, just 39 percent agreed with that assessment.

Indeed, that 54 percent is virtually identical to George W. Bush's score on the same question in the Nov. 2005 NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, which was released just months after Bush's widely criticized handling of Hurricane Katrina.

Why The Gun Industry Secretly Loves Obama

Rick Perry’s emergence as the front runner for the Republican Presidential nomination would seem like a coup for the gun industry. The Texas governor’s enthusiasm for firearms rivals Yosemite Sam’s. He has an A+ rating from the Texas State Rifle Association and packs a laser-sighted Ruger pistol when he jogs. Last year, he famously shot a coyote that threatened his dog during a run.

To commemorate his act of valor, the manufacturer, Sturm, Ruger & Co., produced a lightweight, limited-edition “Coyote Special” with the words “A True Texan” emblazoned on the barrel. Collectors snapped them up. Perry would be as ardent a champion of gun rights as has ever occupied the White House.

New Swine Flu Strain Infects Two More Children

Influenza A has picked up a gene from the H1N1 pandemic strain, CDC says

Two more cases of a new strain of swine flu were confirmed Monday by Pennsylvania officials. Both are connected to an agricultural fair in southwestern Pennsylvania and bring the total number of cases reported to date to four.

On Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported two infections of the novel influenza A virus. One involved an Indiana boy and the other was a girl from Pennsylvania who had been to the Washington County Fair the week of Aug. 13-20, the same fair attended by those in the two newest cases.

All of those who have fallen ill were children. Those whose illnesses were reported Friday have fully recovered and those whose cases were reported Monday are also recovering, according to a press release from the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Feds Warn Of Small Airplane Terror Threats

WASHINGTON (AP) - The FBI and Homeland Security have issued a nationwide warning about al-Qaida threats to small airplanes, just days before the anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks.

Authorities say there is no specific or credible terrorist threat for the 10-year anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. But they have stepped up security nationwide as a precaution.

According to a five-page law enforcement bulletin issued Friday, as recently as early this year, al-Qaida was considering ways to attack airplanes.

The alert, issued ahead of the summer's last busy travel weekend, said terrorists have considered renting private planes and loading them with explosives.


New York Times: America Should Embrace Sharia Law

What?! Below is an excerpt from the New York Times. No wonder they are losing readers. With thinking like this, we might as well hand the United States of America over to the Middle East. Letting Muslims and people of other cults practice voluntary ecclesiastical law within their communities is one thing. Muslims wants Shariah law to be the law of the land. State governments are getting smart and shoring up their laws to prevent the courts from forcing Sharia law on American citizens. The New York Times should implement Sharia law upon its employees before letting them write articles like this.

"More than a dozen American states are considering outlawing aspects of Shariah law. Some of these efforts would curtail Muslims from settling disputes over dietary laws and marriage through religious arbitration, while others would go even further in stigmatizing Islamic life: a bill recently passed by the Tennessee General Assembly equates Shariah with a set of rules that promote “the destruction of the national existence of the United States.”

Lewis Gone, But Telethon Brings In More Than '10

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Even without Jerry Lewis, the Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon posted its best gain since the recession started, though the program's longtime host was on the minds of many during the 46th annual fundraiser.

"American Idol" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe said after co-hosting Sunday's program that he's sorry the famed comedian didn't participate, but the organization needs to move on to ensure the fundraiser continues.

The telethon raised nearly $61.5 million Sunday, an increase of about $2.6 million over last year, MDA officials said.



Welcome All! I pray all your clean up is completed from the storm. Also how was your Labor Day, again it is hard to believe we are moving into fall! Life moves fast!

Delmar High; what’s up? As most of you know I grew up in Delmar and am a great fan of the town and school. Now that we have moved back there I’m trying to pay more attention. My cousin Greg shared with me something I need more information on, so if you are out there and know this share with me the answer. During the storm I wondered why the High School was not used as a shelter for those who needed it? I am told it was not built to code for that. If not why not?  In my mind all schools should be built to be multi functional , we pay taxes for that building, and so do many people in all towns of the state, help pay for their schools. There are a lot of retired people in the state who also continue to pay taxes without kids in school. Should they not be able to use the school in case of an emergency? I for one think YES! So if anyone out there knows this is true please let me know why!

Health and Fitness News Watch: Now this next part does not really have anything to do with most of you but I just wanted you to be able to take a peak behind the curtain. First of all I still can’t believe there are still many people who do not know what a Doctor of Chiropractic does. First, most people don’t realize chiropractic school and medical school is the same length of time. Yes that is correct, so then where is the difference? After the diagnosis. Medicine has basically three answers for your problem. 1) drugs 2)inject you 3) cut you. Now again I’m not anti drugs or surgery but our philosophy is let’s try the most natural approach first. After our diagnosis we adjust ( bring the body back to it’s most neutral position to allow the body to heal itself), next we look at your stress, your nutrition, along with pH, how much water you are drinking, and what type of exercise you do. Our goal is to not only get rid of the symptom but to bring your body back to health. Does this science work? Well we have had five different MD’s work with us and they all continue to refer us patience as well as much of the “educated” medical community whom I have worked with over the years. Now let’s look behind the curtain. There is a group who are trying to add drugs to what a Doctor of Chiropractic can do. Let me be clear I am 100% against this as well as is most of our profession. So if you MD”S out there see any legislation out there about this please let me know because I will be happy to do what I can to end it! Why? First it is not in the art, science, or philosophy of a Doctor of Chiropractic. In my assumption it would water down what we do. Yes I do on occasion refer to the MD’s to give a med or even a possible surgery consult. There is only one God and it is none of us that is why I believe there is a time and place for drugs and we already have those professionals in place to handle this. Since 1895 Chiropractic has been a specific and unique profession, my opinion is we keep it that way! Any questions CALL ME 302-629-4344, if not nuff said! Curtain closed !

Politics: Man I get tired of this! One of the liberal T.V. shows started this thing with Rush again. From the start of Obama reign Rush has said He hopes Obama fails. I for one have been in agreement. NOW PAY ATTENTION, I wanted him to fail and yes as Rush explained because we don’t want the economy to decline. Has it over three years? Hard to continue to blame Bush this far out. Do you want employment for Americans who are black? It is about 51% unemployment for Americans who are black, we don’t want that , do you? Throwing money to union companies for so called stimulus money. Seems most unions pay their union dues to re elect Democrats, I don’t like that and have not seen where my tax dollars have made this country one bit better over three years. It has been said many times our disagreement with Obama is not just because he is black but they insinuate that is certainly one of the reasons. Yes, I agree there were probably some uneducated people who did and who did not vote for him because he is black! Please don’t put people like me in that category! I don’t like big government, don’t confuse this with no government. As for segregation the only kind I am for is you are an American or you are not!  I can go on but lack of space stops me. If you are conservative want smaller government, want all to be equal, then take time to get to know us, you may be surprised! Stop segregating this country! I believe it seems race issues have been worse with this president then in the 60’s and 70’s! Let all American’s stop this! Can I get an oh me or an AMEN! Stand up and REPRESENT America!

That’s it for now as always you must choose, remember the POWER lies with you to continue the same beliefs or change! What will you do?

Yours in all areas of life,

Indiana College Bans "Too Violent" National Anthem

Tiny Goshen College in Indiana has banned the "The Star Spangled Banner: at all sporting events because the Mennonite school's president considers the National Anthem's words to be too violent.

The 1,000-student school had already banned the words last year, but the band could still play the music for patriots in attendance. Now, the school has banned the song entirely, according to NBC Sports.

The school’s board of directors told college President Jim Brenneman to “find an alternative to playing the National Anthem that fits with sports tradition, that honors country and that resonates with Goshen College’s core values and respects the views of diverse constituencies.”
Brenneman was okay with that.

“I am committed to retaining the best of what it means to be a Mennonite college, while opening the doors wider to all who share our core values,” Brenneman said. “And I invite others to join us at Goshen College as we make peace in all of its forms, even with the national anthem.”


Palin, Not Even In The Race, Draws Double The Size Crowd As Romney

On a big day in presidential politics, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Monday gave another of her presidential-stump-like speeches to a presidential-rally-style crowd in an important presidential primary state. She did not say she's running for president. Again.

"It's great to spend Labor Day with you," Palin told a large crowd of tea party supporters in Manchester, N.H., on the traditional kick off day of the presidential primary season. "You could be grilling up some steaks with your neighbors and instead, youĂ­re concerned about your country and taking a stand."

A Vineyard Too Far

By Sunday afternoon, the Gallup tracking poll showed a 17-point spread in the president’s approval rating — 38 percent approval to 55 percent disapproval. Such polls are fickle and can go up and down quickly, often depending on unwarranted and unfair perceptions and media hype, hinging on everything from hurricanes to killing bin Laden. That said, these recent abysmal numbers might suggest that for the first time, a considerable number of Americans are starting to be turned off not just by Barack Obama’s economic policies, but by Barack Obama himself. But why now?

The president’s latest Martha’s Vineyard vacation was a public-relations disaster, wholly unnecessary, and in part responsible for Obama’s most recent slide in the polls. Part of the problem was purely coincidental and no one’s fault: Who could have expected that while the president of the United States was resting on an exclusive private beach on a tony island on a calm August day, millions of Eastern Seaboarders around him would be engaged in a media-driven frenzy of emergency preparation and evacuation?

Yet most of the negative perception was the president’s own doing. For nearly three years, there has been something strange about the First Family’s ritzy getaway tastes. The annual Martha’s Vineyard rentals were bookended by First Family junkets to Vail, Costa del Sol, and Hawaii. The choice of venues spawned at least three problems for the president that have nothing to do with the First Family’s right, and indeed duty, to enjoy a little well-earned vacation time — or with the fact that other presidents have vacationed in nice places.

First, Obama’s fiery rhetoric (“fat-cat bankers,” “corporate jets,” “millionaires and billionaires,” “redistributive change,” “at a certain point you’ve made enough money,” etc.) has demonized the better off. Many successful liberal presidents do that, but they finesse the necessary fundraising and schmoozing with Wall Street zillionaires with tact and discretion. Bill Clinton was a past master at gluing a populist veneer atop his deep fascination with old money and hip celebrity. The Obamas are far clumsier in both their class-warfare boilerplate and their overt elite tastes, whose contradictions they apparently either miss or don’t much care about.

Porn Performer Retests HIV-Negative

An adult film performer whose positive HIV test prompted the shutdownof Los Angeles' billion-dollar porn industry last week has been retested and does not have the virus, an industry trade group announced.
"The industry will be abundantly cautious as we try to nail down the reasons for what now appears to have been a false positive result on a previous test," Free Speech Coalition spokeswoman Diane Duke told the Associated Press, adding that production could resume.
