Local Elected Officials Are Full Of Chicken Sh!t

If you wanted to open a Bar but you seem to be somewhat close to a Church, did you know you have to be 500 feet or more away from their front door to your front door? That's a fact.

However, when it comes to chicken houses, currently you only have to be 100 feet away from any property line. After almost ten months of deliberation, meetings and public discussions, (get this) they've been able to expand that distance from 100 feet to 400 feet, WOW!

Now here's the most interesting part you're not hearing from your so called Main Stream Media. Did you know that not one Town representative has been to ANY of the meetings regarding the BIGGEST industry on the entire Eastern Shore! 

Yeah, there are a ton of people out there screaming at the County Executive as well as County Council Members but you know what, it's NOT their fault. You see, YOU elect local Mayors, Town Managers and sorts to REPRESENT YOU and your community/municipality. If you happen to own a piece of land that sits next to a large parcel of land and someone buys it to open up chicken houses, well, they'll be 400 feet away from you with a landscaping buffer to separate the two properties, WOW! 

Now you people understand this. Not one of your Town Representatives showed up to these public meetings and there's been a lot of them. I've talked to some of the County Council Members about this issues and they agree, the newly proposed legislation they'll be voting on next Tuesday is not perfect but it will stop any new applicants from getting away with what was on the books in the past and they can tweak things as time goes on. 

When you elect a Mayor or Town Manager, know what the heck you are doing. STOP voting for lazy chicken sh!t people who don't take their position seriously because in this case every single one of them in Wicomico County failed you 100%. Every meeting on this matter should have been packed with your town representatives.  

Barbra Streisand to Leave US If Trump Elected

Entertainer Barbra Streisand has said she will leave the United States if Donald Trump becomes president.

In an interview on 60 Minutes with Australia-based correspondent Michael Usher, Streisand said that if Trump is elected, "I'm either coming to your country if you'll let me in, or Canada."

Streisand, who is an ardent Democrat, said she is very worried about the election.

"I don't take anything for granted. I want Hillary Clinton to be president of the United States. But there is still a lot of sexism, and 'A woman being president?' you know, and making fun of her, the way [Donald Trump] insults her right and left, and has no facts."

Acknowledging that Trump's campaign has led to an increased level of tension and division within the country, Streisand said she thought it was due to Trump "saying things that probably a lot of people have thought but have never said."



I want to know what in the world we are ever going to do about the Emergency Room at Peninsula Regional Medical Center? I have NEVER in my life seen or experienced such a pitiful excuse for emergency “health” care. Let me explain…

My sister, 53, was taken by ambulance with possible heart attack to PRMC at approximately 9:45am. She was taken to the trauma room, connected to the monitor and all the protocol’s followed. Her pain was so far above a 10 that she could barely breathe. Due to her heart rate and blood pressure running LOW, she was given a baby dose of morphine, a nitro tablet under her tongue and nitro patch on her chest. Well… of course her pressure continued to run in 90’s (normal 120), her heart rate ran in the 30’s and low 40’s (normal is 60-80), her oxygen level would drop into the 80’s (below 90 you need to have oxygen via nasal canula), and she would stop breathing. Now, I sat by her side, had her hold my hand and squeeze it through the wave of pain, and I continued to remind her to breathe. Where were the nurses you ask? That was my question. The alarm was going off on the monitor, constantly.

After an hour and a half or so, a code red was called. This meant another ambulance was coming in, critical condition. They came into my sister, told us they were going to have to move her to another room due to this other patient coming in. She was taken off the monitor (still in pain), and moved into another room. Everyone left. Did they hook her back up to ANYTHING? Nope! We waited for half an hour before anyone came back into the room, and I had to go get someone to come in and do it! Now, here you have a patient that comes into the emergency room, by ambulance, possible heart attack, low blood pressure, low heart rate, low oxygen, low respiration due to pain, and not attached to any monitors for half an hour! Her pain was still terrible. She couldn’t get pain medication because of having the low blood pressure; she had a headache from the nitro patch, and complained of such terrible dizziness. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper. I had to ask the “nurse?” if she didn’t think that my sister needed to be on oxygen, since her O2 was running 88! She thought that was a good idea!!!!

Of course, the monitor’s alarm was continuing to go off quite often due to her heart rate dropping below 38, so, in comes someone (have no clue who), and says he was going to change the settings on the monitor because the alarm was a pain, and didn’t need to be going off so often. I made the comment that it was going off because of her heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen levels going so low, and didn’t he think they needed to know what was going on. I was informed they could see it at the desk.

Laura Mitchell Gets Daily Times Editorial Board To Voice Their opinion On No A/C In Jail

While Laura Mitchell is quoted in this recent article, perhaps if the Daily Times actually knew Laura's Son is incarcerated there right now and the only one uncomfortable is Laura visiting him on a regular basis. They actually compared the jail to a dog being placed in a car on a hot summer day. 

Look, Laura shouldn't even be on the Council any more. Her home/belongings were packed up and moved weeks ago. I was assure by now the announcement would be made that she is stepping down from the Council but that hasn't happened. Salisbury voters are being cheated right now with her still being able to cast votes when her residence is now in Reistertown, Maryland. 

Nevertheless, this editorial is a hit piece for Laura and he Son. 

Let's help Laura and the Daily Times out on this one.

People Are Setting Fire To Their Kaepernick Jerseys After He Refused To Stand For The National Anthem

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick stirred controversy in a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers on Friday night when he remained seated during the national anthem.

On Saturday Kaepernick said he refused to support a country that he believes oppresses black people and other minorities:
I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.

To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.

White House says Kaepernick ‘entitled’ to sit during national anthem

President Obama’s spokesman said Monday that 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the national anthem during a game was “objectionable,” but he had the right to express himself.

“I certainly don’t share the views that Mr. Kaepernick expressed after the game,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “But we surely all acknowledge and even defend his right to express those views.”


Want To Know Why They Keep Repaving Rt. 13?

In God We Trust...

An interesting video find on YouTube has come to my attention that I wanted to share with the Salisbury News readers.

This is an amazing explanation about our Economic System in America. A must-watch for those who are perplexed by our system of governance in regards to finances including taxation and whether or not its even legal for the government to be taxing citizens. Also addressed is major corporations being involved in this plot to make digitized slaves of us more than you already are today.

Perhaps this will explain to many why Donald Trump is such a threat to the establishment within the Beltway. He threatens a lot of people and why the MSM is so desperate for him to not be victorious in November. After watching this, you’ll realize it’s no wonder everyone seems to be against the only person who knows how this system works and how to destroy it.

From YouTube Description:
Is there a law which requires you to pay the Federal Income Tax? Is the Federal Reserve a part of the United States Government, or is it a private bank owned and operated by multinational corporate interests? Do they have our nation’s best interests at heart? Unless something changes, what does the future of the United States look like?

Elderly woman beaten, set on fire in black-on-white attack

'I can't imagine being one of their mamas, and know that your child has done this'

An elderly woman who was beaten and burned during a robbery inside her Meriwether County, Georgia, home has died from her injuries.

Dorothy Dow, 83, was lying in her bed when police said several people kicked in her back door and attacked her on the night of Aug. 4.
“These suspects began to demand money from Miss Dow. She pleaded with them that she didn’t have any money. They began to brutally beat her,” Sheriff Chuck Smith told WSB-TV.

Dow’s arms and fingers were broken, and her face was battered. The sheriff said the robbers then set her on fire with a flammable liquid.

Ravens coach defends Kaepernick's right to protest

OWINGS MILLS, Md. —Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is the latest person to weigh in on the controversy involving San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's decision to sit down during the national anthem before NFL games.

Kaepernick said he decided to sit down during the anthem to show he stands with people who he said are being oppressed in the U.S.

While many people say they disagree with the decision, Harbaugh said taking a stand sometimes comes with criticism.

“I think as a coach, it is something you always think about," Harbaugh told reporters on Monday. "We deal with that on a regular basis, because we are talking about adults -- grown men. We are talking about a free country. I’m grateful for the right to express my displeasure, and that is what Colin chose to do.”

Harbaugh said, as a coach, it is important to respect the opinions of those on the team, even if you disagree with them.

Obama bans Confederate flag at cemeteries

Unilaterally imposes restrictions rejected by Congress

The Veterans Affairs Department quietly moved this month to ban flying of Confederate flags from fixed flagpoles at the cemeteries it runs, striking yet another blow against the controversial emblem.

Congress had debated and rejected that change, but the Obama administration decided to move forward anyway, saying it was unilaterally imposing the restrictions.

“In particular, we will amend our policy to make clear that Confederal flags will not be displayed from any permanently fixed flagpole in a national cemetery at any time,” wrote Ronald E. Walters, under secretary for memorial affairs at the VA.

Limbaugh warns NFL players they could ‘destroy’ own league

'Business depends on massive public love and support and attention and money'

PALM BEACH, Florida –
As controversy continues over the refusal to stand for the national anthem by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, radio powerhouse Rush Limbaugh issued a stern warning to NFL players, saying they could destroy the league with their political views.

“The American people are not going to sit by idly and watch the stage of the National Football League stolen and used for personal political purposes,” Limbaugh said on his Tuesday broadcast.

“You players in the NFL, you can go ahead and try to continue stealing the stage of the NFL if you want. You can take the example of Kaepernick and you can try to get some news coverage, you can draw attention to yourself, but you run the risk of obliterating the stage on which you perform that earns you your living and gives you the opportunity to succeed beyond your wildest dreams.

“You better be careful in what and how you express your thoughts on this country, the greatest place in the history of mankind. And the residents of this country are among the luckiest in the history of all humanity. The National Football League is on TV. It can easily be turned off. The National Football League is sponsored by beer and cars and soft drinks that can easily be not purchased. Not that hard. Just turn it off.”


9/11 conspiracy gets support from physicists’ study

Europhysics magazine report finds Twin Towers brought down by 'controlled demolition'

For 15 years, there’s been a small band of investigators who have questioned the idea that the Twin Towers in New York City collapsed because of the intense heat and fires raging following two terrorist-directed plane crashes.

But they have largely been dismissed as crazy conspiracy theorists.

Now, however, Europhysics Magazine, the respected publication of the European physics community, has published a report by four experts who say “the evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion that all three buildings were destroyed by controlled demolition.”

“Given the far-reaching implications, it is morally imperative that this hypothesis be the subject of a truly scientific and impartial investigation by responsible authorities,” the four physicists conclude.


Appeals court upholds ban on gun sales to medical marijuana card holders

A federal government ban on the sale of guns to medical marijuana card holders does not violate the 2nd Amendment, a federal appeals court said Wednesday.

The ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals applies to the nine Western states that fall under the court's jurisdiction, including California, Washington and Oregon.

It came in a lawsuit filed by S. Rowan Wilson, a Nevada woman who tried to buy a firearm in 2011 after obtaining a medical marijuana card.


Black Teen Assaults 5-Year-Old Girl, School Defends it as Normal Behavior: UPDATE

Father: "I'm very upset, I'm mad"

A 17-year-old black teenager on probation assaulted a 5-year-old girl on a school bus, but the school’s superintendent later tried to defend the behavior as normal.

The girl’s father, Terry Peters, said he noticed a mark on his daughter’s face when he picked her up from the school bus last week.

“People came out and they began to state to me that she got slapped on the school bus,” said Peters told WAGT. “I’m very upset, I’m mad.”

Surveillance footage shows 17-year-old Tavon Walters reach over a bus seat and use another student’s hand to hit 5-year-old Jasmine Peters on the right side of her face.

Maryland: 14 Arrested In Raids Related to $16 Million Food Stamp Fraud

14 Retailers Facing Federal Indictment for $16 Million Food Stamp Fraud

Defendants Allegedly Received Over $16 Million from USDA for Food Stamps Allegedly Traded for Cash; 26 Search Warrants Executed; 46 Bank Accounts Seized

Baltimore, Maryland - A federal grand jury has returned nine separate indictments charging a total of 14 retail store operators for committing food stamp fraud and wire fraud in connection with schemes to illegally redeem food stamp benefits in exchange for cash. The indictments allege the retailers received over $16 million in federal payments for transactions in which they did not provide any food, a fraud scheme commonly known as “food stamp trafficking.” Stores allegedly split the proceeds with food stamp recipients. The indictments were unsealed today upon the arrests of the defendants.

Over 300 members of law enforcement participated in the arrests and execution of a total of 26 search warrants at the stores and related locations this morning. In addition, 46 bank accounts were seized.

The indictments were announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge William G. Squires, Jr. of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Office of Inspector General, Northeast Region; and Special Agent in Charge Kevin Perkins of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

BAMBERG, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) -- A 17-year-old accused of hitting a 5-year-old girl on a school bus has turned himself in to police Tuesday morning.

Tavon Walters turned himself in at 10 a.m., and a bond hearing is scheduled for 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Jasmine's parents want to know why the high school student was allowed to ride the bus in the first place.

Terry Peters says he immediately noticed the mark on his little girl's face when he picked her up from after school care on Thursday. "I'm very upset! I'm mad," Peters said.

He says the daycare workers told him 17 year old Tavon Walters, a high school student, hit his daughter on the bus ride from the schools to the after school program. "He had reached over that seat and telling another girl if you don't hit her then I'm going to hit her for you," the father said.


A Viewer Writes: Pasco is one fine business

Well had my alternator die on me today. Which is Sunday. I was right in front of Pasco in Fruitland. I managed to get my truck into the parking lot and went on in to get some help. Well even though it is Sunday they were open but not for service . Was informed I had to wait until Monday. I was obviously in dire straits by the look on my face when the young man asked if I was OK. I informed him I had to be in Fairfax VA later that evening for business and an early morning appointment. I was totally screwed. I was going to buy everything i could think of a do the repairs in the parking lot. The young man asked me to give him a minute and proceeded to make a phone call. Within minutes the owner and a tech appeared to properly diagnose the problem and fix it. All to happy to help! No only did they do this but informed me of the cheapest way to go all while informing me that I didn't need certain things I thought I would. Saving me a lot of money! This was their day off! I could have been told sorry about my luck but was only greeted with the need to help not just a customer but a person period! This kind of service isn't readily available here on the shore! But it is most definitely available at Pasco! I can't thank them enough for not only their help and service. But treating me and my family like friends. Refusing to leave me stranded. More businesses around here can learn alot from them!

Pasco customer for life

Gov. Hogan Expected To Mandate Md. School Year Begin After Labor Day

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Governor Larry Hogan is expected to mandate this week that Maryland schools open after Labor Day in future school years.

This year, students in 24 out of 25 districts have already reported to their first day of class.

Worcester County is the only Maryland district with a post-Labor Day start. It houses one of the state’s biggest vacation spots, Ocean City.

That’s where Hogan will be joined by Comptroller Peter Franchot at a press conference scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Franchot has been outspoken in his support for a post-Labor Day start date for two years, since an economic impact report showed it’s worth more than $74 million to the economy.



St. John the Baptist Parish, LA (NBC News) – Two people were killed and dozens more were injured after a speeding rental bus carrying construction workers crashed into a fire truck at the scene of an earlier crash on a Louisiana highway Sunday, state police said.

The 7:17 a.m. crash on Interstate 10 westbound in St. John the Baptist Parish threw three firefighters over a guardrail, sending them plummeting 30 to 40 feet into water below, state police said.

St. John the Baptist Parish Fire Chief Spencer Chauvin, 36, died, and a passenger in another car that was also struck was killed, Louisiana State Police spokeswoman Melissa Matey said. Three others in the car that was struck were injured, one of whom was in critical condition.

“This is a very sad day for all first responders in Louisiana,” Louisiana State Police Superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the St. John the Baptist Fire Department.”

Authorities planned to charge the bus driver, Denis Yasmir Amaya Rodriguez, 37, with two counts of negligent homicide, reckless operation and other crimes, Matey said. Additional charges were expected.

She said that Rodriguez, a Honduran national, was in the country illegally and was driving without a license.


Women bare breasts for equality in New York City

HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) — They took it off for equality.

A few dozen women, and some men, went topless Sunday afternoon as they walked down Broadway in New York City. It was part of GoTopless Day, which calls for women to have as much right as men to be bare-chested in public.

The march was led by some women carrying a banner, followed by others in a convertible, with the top down, of course. Coming up at the end was a pair of giant inflatable breasts. Onlookers gawked and took photos as the parade participants went by.


Ingraham: Trump Speech Was 'Specific After Specific'

Donald Trump's critics have accused him of broad generalities, but he got more specific in his much-anticipated speech on immigration Wednesday night, coming just hours after his meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

"This speech, it was lengthy, it went into specific after specific," said talk radio host Laura Ingraham, a Trump adviser, on Fox News Channel's "Hannity." "I mean, getting down to the 287(g) program which is cooperation of the states and the federal government, which he's going to reinvigorate."

The "big kicker," she said, was how what Trump described as President Barack Obama's "catch-and-release" policy of allowing those who cross the border to stay in the United States.

"We're immediately going to deport them, including to the countries who refuse to take deported illegal immigrants today," she said. "He went into specific after specific on the impact of the American people on crime, on our security, on jobs."

The speech, before a cheering crowd in Phoenix, Arizona, was a big contrast to Democrat Hillary Clinton's "lackluster speech at the American Legion" earlier Wednesday, where "she received tepid, polite applause," Ingraham said.

Trump also looked presidential meeting with the Mexican president earlier in the day and holding a joint press conference, she said.

Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, is a NeverTrumper, but agreed that Trump went a long way Wednesday toward winning over critics.

"You know, I think that picture of him with the president of Mexico helps him a lot," Kristol told MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell.
