12:25, You bring up an excellent point, and I'd like to address it, if I may.
We need affordable housing for people that don't qualify for section 8. There is no affordable housing outside the ghetto for people not on welfare.
August 13, 2012 12:25 PM
Thank you for being so blunt about this, and I wish to be equally blunt in my response to your statement.
Your income taxes (or a portion of) that are withheld out of your paycheck each week pay to make up the difference between what the landlord needs from each apartment, say $1,000 a month, from what each rent payer pays, say $250 a month. So, by you working, a lot of your taxes taken from you at the end of the week pay to cover the other $750 that the section 8 renter is not paying. Does your money cover the whole $750? Oh, of course not! There are people whose "job" it is now all day long to "process" these taxes and payments. Let's just call them "skimmers". They have to skim about $200 off the top to pay their bills. After all, this keeps them busy all day every day and keeps them from working a productive job, so they've got to make ends meet, too.
So it will not only take a lot of your co-workers' income taxes to pay 3/4 of the section 8 peoples' rent and the skimmers, but many other workers across town as well. In fact, it will take about ten to twelve job holders to support each section 8 renter,
This reduces your income to a point that brings you to your question of the day. "I make so little I need section 8 housing, but I don't want to live in a ghetto!" PLEASE THINK ABOUT THIS FOR A MOMENT, AND LET IT SINK IN.
Now you want a NICE apartment away from that, that is better that theirs, that you will not own and neither will any of your neighbors, for less than market value, (the landlord still needs his thousand, and will go to the government to get it if you cannot pay, so fill out this form along with your lease)that you did not work hard for because most of its value is given to you, and it's all because some ba$tards across town take money out of your check every week that they don't deserve. NOT ONLY THAT, now all your neighbors are doing the same thing to your paycheck because they are in section 8, too! DAMN!
NOW, your workload is tripled, your pay is cut in half, ALL BECAUSE OF THOSE ROTTEN BA$TARDS ACROSS TOWN, and worse yet, your own neighbors!
What are you going to do next. Hmmmmm. I know, F__K the rest of them, You'll just quit working, make a bunch of babies, and get $ for each one every week like everybody else is doing!
Congratulations, You have just done your part to become a slave to the Government, who will tell you what little pittance you deserve, because there are so few working, there is not enough to so around and you have to give your share to the "children".
So, how's life treating you now? No car, no freedom, if you had a bike it would get stolen by a neighbor or the 'hood across town where you didn't want to live in the first place. Everybody quit working, so the factory moved to another state or country, so there are no jobs even if you wanted to reverse the path you wished so badly for. There is nothing to strive for anymore. Your only hope of breaking free is to go into an illicit retail market, but the cops patrol your hood 24-7, and you'll just get caught someday, over and over again.
Future America. Keep on wishing for that "affordable housing away from a ghetto". You may just "get it" some day.
At issue is a discount that the Willow Springs Water Park has been offering to church groups. Following a non-religious organization’s complaint over being declined the same rate that religious groups enjoy, park owner David Ratliff, purportedly feeling pressure, discontinued the faith-based discount. This decision to bend to the demands of a secular organization wasn’t enough, though. Atheists fear that Willow Springs will, once again, begin offering faith-based discounts next season.

What is bankrupting the USPS is not that it is inefficient. It has been self-funded throughout its history. But in 2006, Congress required it to prefund postal retiree health benefits for 75 years into the future, an onerous burden no other public or private company is required to carry. The USPS has evidently been targeted by a plutocratic Congress bent on destroying the most powerful unions and privatizing all public services, including education. Britain's 150-year-old postal service is on the privatization chopping block for the same reason, and its postal workers have also vowed to fight. Adding banking services is an internationally tested and proven way to maintain post office solvency and profitability.
Those sentences are what judges give to the criminals who knowingly and intentionally lie on federal forms though, not firearms dealers who “should have known” that customers were lying to them. It’s quite possible that, as federally licensed firearms dealers, the Reeses will be held to a higher standard and receive tougher sentences. Sentencing is scheduled for early October. Rick and Ryin will continue to be held without bail, but Terri will remain out on bail until sentence is passed. Remington was released from custody at the conclusion of the trial.
But despite the euphoria, there’s a major problem: The looming American oil glut may simply not be enough to sate the United States and the rest of motorized humanity.
Experts say soaring demand from China and India is sure to send oil prices back above $100 a barrel. A supply disruption in the coming years, they say, could trigger panic, gasoline hoarding and perhaps lead to lines at the pumps akin to the 1973 Arab oil embargo and the 1979 Iranian revolution.
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) recently announced that, after a two-year review, they were sticking to their long-standing policy of excluding openly gay youth and adults as members and leaders. (This is in stark contrast to the Girl Scouts, who have no exclusionary membership policies around sexual preference.)
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times broke an extremely troubling story about the BSA’s failure to prevent some known and suspected sexual predators from being scout leaders or volunteers, despite an awareness of their abusive behavior.
Examining recently released files from 1970 to 1991, the Times found “more than 125 cases across the country in which men allegedly continued to molest Scouts after the organization was first presented with detailed allegations of abusive behavior.” Some of these repeat offenses were attributed to “clerical errors, computer glitches or the Scouts’ failure to check their own “perversion files,” a confidential blacklist designed to identify potential predators. But the BSA also chronically failed to report complaints of abuse to law enforcement or child protective services.

As if we don't have enough Section 8, Affordable Subsidized Housing Units in Salisbury, eh?
Well, here's a list for you. We have PLENTY of units all over the City, yet Ireton wants to slam taxpayers with the Bricks and ALL Downtown Parking Lots and add more than 500 more units Downtown.
You have to ask yourself, why aren't you seeing any of this on WBOC, WMDT or the Daily Times?????? Why is the Chamber of Commerce telling people that the subsidized housing units in Downtown are for Police Officers, Firefighters and Teachers, when that is a complete lie?????
Some people will say ANYTHING to get certain projects through, then it all changes from there. I, Joe Albero, will NEVER pull this kind of crap on the Public. You'll simply get the TRUTH for the first time in many years.
You take a good hard look at the information about and STOP letting the Daily Times spew special agenda information down your throats. Do tell me, how many of YOU live in housing units that only cost $300.00 a month, or so? Yeah, must be nice, eh!
I have spoken to some developers that say they love holding these kind of units because they can always count on a check every month. It may not be a lot of money but it sure does tell you what they CAN afford to get per month, instead of what they DO charge to others.
That being said, we do NOT need more.
UPDATE: According to these documents alone there are 1,296 units in Salisbury. Some units are $90.00 to $250.00 a month.

High Ranking Cartel Member Says Operation Fast And Furious Was Meant To Supply Guns To The Sinaloa Cartel

A high-ranking member of the Sinaloa drug cartel operative currently in U.S. custody alleges that Operation Fast and Furious was part of an agreement to finance and arm the Sinaloa cartel in exchange for information used to take down rival cartels, according to court documents.
The statement was made by Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, the Sinaloa cartel’s “logistics coordinator” in charge of arranging massive drug shipments from Latin America to the United States as well as the son of cartel leader Ismael “Mayo” Zambada-Garcia and a close associate to kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
Zambada-Niebla was arrested by Mexican authorities in March 2009 and extradited to Chicago to face drug trafficking charges.

Starting now, we can expect even more wealthy, right-wing ideologues lining up to support the Romney-Ryan ticket.
The people on the other side who are trying to buy this election are putting nasty, deceptive TV ads on the air right this very minute. They're not going away. They're getting worse.
If we don't do what we can to keep this close, right now at this crucial moment, we risk letting the other side run away with it.
If you're thinking about making a donation to the campaign, please don't wait -- donate $3 or more today, and let's win this together.
Every single day from now until Election Day matters. At the end of it, we'll all ask ourselves if we did everything we could to make sure that we are able to keep fighting for change.
I know how I want to answer that question. I hope you're with me -- because we're up against the kind of outside spending never seen before in modern politics.
And without people like you, this could get to be a pretty lopsided fight.
November 6th will be here sooner than we think. Donate $3 or more today:
All you've left us with is change, (as in pennies). Our homes aren't worth a damn. You've taxed us to death. Heck, at least for $3.00 we can almost get a gallon of gas. It's time for change alright and you and Barack aren't a part of the plan.
Oh, by the way. Can you please tell Michelle to please stop contacting me. Not that my Wife is bothered, it just looks bad.

First, to learn about these extremely important events that are not taught in public schools which dramatically impacted Anglo-American history, particularly regarding the background of the American Revolution, constitutional separation of powers, and the Bill of Rights.
Secondly, watch it as current events unfolding in contemporary America, on the dangers of fanaticism from earnestly-minded bigots from across the religious and political spectrum that fall prey to their ignorance and zealotry. If civil conflict and open warfare in the streets comes to American communities I am afraid that such armed militant groups appealing to the basest of motives of the lowest common denominator will prove dominant.
This series has superb production values with exceptional re-enacted dramatic portrayals of events, like watching a first class feature film.

There have been about 28 such attacks this year killing 34 coalition troops, following 35 killed in 21 attacks in 2011.
Matthew Rosenberg at The New York Times reports the meal was at an outpost and says the number of U.S. troops killed may actually be four.
Rosenberg also mentions that at least one of the Afghan officers had been working with the Special Forces troops for four years, and that shootings like this may arise from personal disputes, not Taliban infiltration.
Sadly, if you believe Obama's administration unemployment figures this is Very true! Are you old enough to remember Abbott and Costello?
Abbott and Costello explain Obama's Accounting System.
COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.
ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible Times. It's 9%.
COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?
ABBOTT: No, that's 16%.
COSTELLO: You just said 9%.
ABBOTT: 9% Unemployed.
COSTELLO: Right 9% out of work.
ABBOTT: No, that's 16%.
COSTELLO: Okay, so it's 16% unemployed.
ABBOTT: No, that's 9% .
COSTELLO: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 9% or 16%?
ABBOTT: 9% are unemployed. 16% are out of work.
COSTELLO: IF you are out of work you are unemployed.
ABBOTT: No, you can't count the "Out of Work" as the unemployed. You
Have to look for work to be unemployed.
COSTELLO: BUT THEY ARE OUT OF WORK!!!
ABBOTT: No, you miss my point.
COSTELLO: What point?
ABBOTT: Someone who doesn't look for work, can't be counted with those
Who look for work. It wouldn't be fair.
COSTELLO: To whom?
ABBOTT: The unemployed.
COSTELLO: But they are ALL out of work.
ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are
Out of work stopped looking. They gave up. And, if you give up, you are
No longer in the ranks of the unemployed.
COSTELLO: So if you're off the unemployment roles, that would count as
ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!
COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you don't look for
ABBOTT: Absolutely it goes down. That's how you get to 9%. Otherwise it
Would be 16%. You don't want to read about 16% unemployment, do ya?
COSTELLO: That would be frightening.
COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for you. That means there are two
Ways to bring down the unemployment number?
ABBOTT: Two ways is correct.
COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?
COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a
COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the
Easier of the two is to just stop looking for work.
ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like an economist.
COSTELLO: I don't even know what the hell I just said!
ABBOTT: Now you're thinking like a politician.

Date of Occurrence:
Friday, August 10, 2012 at 12:16 p.m.
52 year old female
Joseph E. Easterday-51 of Seaford, DE (photo attached)
Possession of Marijuana in Tier 5 Quantity(Manufacturing Marijuana)
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
Criminal Trespass Third Degree
Committed to SCI on $21,200 Cash Bond
Seaford-Troopers have charged a 51 year old Seaford, DE man with manufacturing marijuana after being called to investigate a neighborhood dispute in the Indian Village Mobile Home Park, Seaford.
The incident occurred on Friday, August 10, 2012 at approximately 12:16 p.m. after Troopers were called by a 52 year old female that resides in the 23000 block of Burton Street indicating that her neighbor, later identified as Joseph E. Easterday, had walked into her yard the previous evening and threatened her before fleeing on foot. On Friday, Easterday was observed again by the victim, driving by her residence and shouting obscenities.
Troopers investigating the incident responded to Easterday’s residence also located in the 23000 block of Burton Street in an attempt to contact him with negative results. Troopers received information that Easterday may be in a camper that was located in the rear of his property. As Troopers checked the camper for Easterday, they noticed a strong odor of unburnt marijuana in the area of the camper and located an approximately 6’ tall marijuana plant growing in a plastic container and several other large plants that appeared to be marijuana. The investigation culminated with the execution of a search warrant for the property where Troopers located and seized 23 marijuana plants totaling approximately 22 pounds and assorted drug paraphernalia associated with a marijuana grow operation.
Joseph E. Easterday was taken into custody without incident and was charged with the above crimes. He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $21, 200 Cash Bond.
The City of Salisbury and Siemens Industry, Inc. have settled the lawsuit relating to equipment supplied by Siemens to the waste water treatment plant. The settlement results in a payment to the City of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000.00.) The settlement also states that there is no admission of fault by Siemens. The City will continue to pursue its case against other parties named in the lawsuit.
As I mentioned earlier in a comment on the Bricks, here's what we're subjected to for years now, yet Code & Compliance hasn't done a thing to keep this property up. I wonder why?
If the Daily Times wants to go around shoving projects down the taxpayers throats, perhaps they should do stories about ALL of the buildings around Salisbury that are abandoned. I'm sure I have hundreds of them in my files. How about the Allfirst Bank on the Plaza.
How about the Vernon Powell building on the Plaza.
The ONLY reason the Bricks is a big deal is because Jim Ireton controlls the Daily Times. They did articles on the Bricks two days in a row. Do as I say, not as I do, right Greg Bassett?
This City simply needs a new Mayor, period. We're all subjected to abandoned buildings and homes throughout Salisbury. In time we will figure out what can be done but we'll do so through investors and NOT more grants. In other words, not off the taxpayers backs. I'd rather do it right with people who are INTERESTED in Salisbury and NOT with easy grant money to create an Inner City.
Look at Ireton's pattern Ladies & Gentlemen. He's not doing anything, other than Section 8, affordable and subsidized housing units, even Downtown. We'll see what the Voters want come April. I'm banking on the fact that the citizens want it done right and that's why they'll vote for me.
They must enjoy getting pounded by Salisbury News. I'm actually starting to believe Greg Bassett & Co. really don't understand or believe that we're much bigger than the Daily Times any more, but it's whatever.
In today's Our View, the DT's goes after the City Council once again, yet they clearly were told, (once again) one side of the story. Let me spell it out for you Mr. Bassett.
The Mayor tried to pull a fast one on the Council by trying to mortgage that property WITHOUT their knowledge. When the Council saw what the Mayor was trying to do they shut it down immediately.
Because the Mayor and his chosen two continue to play games, (just as the former Mayor and Council did) they won't have it any more. If some of you are wondering why Jim Ireton is so pissed off any more it's because this Council is too smart for his games and the games of former administrations.
Then they get the Daily Times to spew their hate towards the Council and while the Council majority seem unpopular, they're actually out there covering your rear ends financially.
How the Daily Times can continue to publish such garbage, acting as if there are millions upon millions of dollars floating around to blow on more section 8 housing is beyond me. Their claim is that people have been looking at an empty building for too long. Tough Crap! Spend a day in Detroit Mr. Bassett and maybe you'll come home to a beautiful City. However, you keep pushing our representatives to blow money on something we can't afford, we'll look like Detroit in no time and it will be your fault.
The Daily Times has no vested interest in these kind of projects. I could see if THEY were putting their money where their mouth is but instead they sit back and try to control the entire City with more garbage.
Here's another thought Mr. Bassett. Why don't you have a reporter spend some time researching how many affordable housing units there are in Salisbury. Then check out if the County has ANY. Then compare Salisbury, (per capita) to other Cities in Maryland and see just where we stand. Don't sit there and state Salisbury desperately needs more housing units like this in that area.
What we need Mr. Bassett is a Mayor who can bring JOBS to Salisbury. We need to become less dependent and more independent. Or are you trying to tell us all that Obama has screwed us so bad that we better start renovating properties for section 8 housing because it's NOT going to get any better any time soon.
The Bricks is a dead issue. Mayor Ireton needs to learn to pick his battles carefully because Salisbury News reaches far more local people than the Daily Times and we'll continue to crush them every time they spew this crap.
OH, BY THE WAY GREG. WE'VE BEEN SUBJECTED TO LOOKING AT YOUR RUN DOWN BUILDING ACROSS THE STREET FROM PRMC THAT STILL SAYS THE DAILY TIMES ON IT. YOU HAVE NO ROOM TO TALK.
