  • Delaware’s Senate Race Suddenly Heats Up – Coons 39 Wade 31

    Wade doesn’t have a chance of winning this.

    Coons has Harry Reid on his side and Wade has run for quite a few offices with no victory.

    He’s a good guy all right but this state just keeps getting bluer.

    Here’s hoping I’m wrong but do you guys want honesty or popcorn?

    So Friday night through Saturday afternoon I spent with Kaitlyn and my formerly barbed-wired heart was lifted. Indeed it soared.

    Because I have not seen that child for any length of time since early June as her hospital-addicted mother spent 42 of the last 60 days in a loony bin....all fake like Muncheussen syndrome has it.

    I discovered that Kaitlyn loved me as much as I loved her. For her whole life, even the 9 years when they lived in Baltimore, I kept her once a month. I planned our activites to include going to musicals, an outdoor Shakespeare play, the Delaware state fair....on and on.

    I have never been anything but a great grandmother to her and no mind that her mother-my sympathetic-attention addicted daughter-yells at me for such as not breast-feeding her or going back to work too soon after her birth...Kaitlyn has no reason but to love me with all her heart.

    And she does and she missed me.

    I was emotionally a wreck, not from sadness. But from happiness....I have not been happy for two months. I’ve been lonely and miserable and taking care of two lonely dogs for those 42 days.

    Now she sends me Facebook private message how miserable she is (she is back across the street, WITH abusive husband, so much for Ray Rice-I just do not know what it is about).

    But I REFUSE to be unhappy any more.

    It’s all up to Melissa, a 37 year old woman addicted to hospitals....they call it, you should smile, “hospital hopper syndrome”...so this is not unknown.

    She’s denying it all over the place, of course, but I think the Delaware child people are on to her. After all, it’s what they do and there is a syndrome called Mancheussen syndrome by proxy and that has those people worried.

    With THIS syndrome mothers do awful things to their children for their addictive need for sympathy and attention. I do NOT think this is the case with my daughter but you can believe she’s got all kinds of people on to her.

    Anyway, I spent many hours hugging and loving Kaitlyn and she loved me back. SHE is the center of my universe. Oh I love daughter dearly but she has to decide her life route. I refuse to be part of that misery for another second.

    So for now, I am happy. I have doubts and fears because no, I don’t believe soninlaw is going to turn into a model citizen.

    But I wish them the best.

    Meanwhile Kaitlyn is playing a trombone (it’s blue plastic?) and is part of her school’s EXCEL program which is no, not a spreadsheet, but some thing for smarter students. She loves her school and she is a great kid.

    She has my heart wrapped in barbed-wire.

    Heh.

    I told her about your fandom and she was so grateful.

    Lord I hope Kevin Wade is elected but don’t forget he ran several times before.

    He’s a great candidate but Delaware is just too blue.

    However.....Fay is my buddy....I love her dearly. We both write on the Delaware site, two very different methods of writing but we respect each other.

    I once took Kevin Wade around my church and introduced him to everybody, even my curmudgeon priest.

    If he wins, I’m happy. Chris Coons is a boobaloob.

    I’m not making any bets.

    So we begin on Fox News Sunday with ISIL and the beheading and now we move on to Ray Rice.

    I am from Baltimore and am a rabid Ravens fan.

    And I was horrified by that slap in the elevator like everyone else.

    As time went on and thought settled into our brains, I began to see whispers that perhaps suspending Rice for what seemed to be the rest of his life, perhaps thought ought to be given to the fact that a)the woman was charging him, a clearly evident act on the video, and b)SHE MARRIED HIM ANYWAY!

    Cause for all the talk about domestic abuse, the abused often takes the abuser back, at least once, but multiple times. THAT is one of the biggest problems in dealing with domestic abuse.

    Daughter and hubby are back together in the most unusual agreement I’ve ever encountered.

    Daughter is in trouble with the Delaware child people-DCPS. Yes I turned her in once I realized the loony bin thing. Of the last 60 days she’s been the loony bin 42 of them, with me keeping her dogs and a mess, just a mess.

    So there’s a custody hearing. The judge, get this, ordered them all to live in the house across the street from me, INCLUDING mother-in-law! Power to her but Melissa and husband are not to be left alone and better her than me. I am NOT allowed in the house during that time even though my name’s on it.

    Son in law still has PFA on him, can you imagine this? Well it will keep him humbler. Jerk thought he was going to walk in the hero to save the day.

    I am not making any of this up and I wish it was not happening to me. Do not give me any sympathy as I might get addicted.

    I see a light at the end of the tunnel, I really do.

    I talk quite publicly about it because a)SHE SURE DOES and b)like my beloved Billy shut her down when she was a teenager, it’s the only way to stop this. Got to tell people the truth.

    Kaitlyn is going to her school and will again-tonight-be across the street from me....dogs, motherinlaw, husband and daughter.

    I am expecting a circus.

    Okay, I’m sorry....but the Munchausen Internet thing keeps on giving.

    For some friend of daughter asked the logical....Did you use sunscreen? This after she posted big pic of herself with a terrible sunburn from a day in the sun yesterday.

    Her husband comes on and says she DID! He’s an enabler; he loves her being so helpless and sympathetic for this makes him so needed in her life.

    Then daughter gets back on and says she smeared on sunscreen five times yesterday.

    Now.....so okay...why is it only her that sunscreen does not work for?

    She says, and I quote: “The sun is not my friend.”

    Why is it only her that gets red streaks running up her belly from tick bites and better, how on earth do three ticks manage to get on her and bite her, evenly, all right in a row? What are the odds.

    Why is it that every time she gets a sore throat she goes on about puss bags hanging in the back of her throat.

    IN THE BOOK I actually document the SIX strep throats she had in one year, plus the migraine headaches (yeah she had these for a while, easy to fake)....let’s not forget that beloved husband Billy caught her on an Internet newsgroup telling everyone she had brain cancer. This when she was 16!

    Now we must feel sorry that OMG...how sad is it to be one of the few people who burn up even after slathering sunscreen all day? Poor baby....

    Sorry guys, but my therapist tells me that best way to deal is to get the word out. Doubt you’ll every meet daughter online but you never know. If you do take everything she says about being sick with a doubt.

    I’ve got other people on instant message and they’re watching her.

    And her enabling husband.

    I just cannot believe President Obama’s interview with Chuck E. Todd.

    So okay, I don’t like Obama. Take me with a grain of salt if you must.

    But he came off as so superior, so smug, tsk-tsking his assertion that ISIL is JV.

    In fact every stupid quote the man made he pooh-poohs as being silly, misquoted...that us dolts didn’t understand what he meant.

    So okay, it’s a defense. I just got to wonder how long his ineptness and his disdain of us boobs who see that ineptness will go on.

    They love to sneak in these things before they are shut down.

    Last legislative session, the very LAST one of the year, our legislators voted to make Common Core standards the benchmark for Delaware schools...including REPUBLICANS!

    Even though the Delaware teachers’ union voted no confidence in common core....our legislators flip us the bird.

    So while I’ve been moaning about my horrible summer, know that it appears to be turning around, cross your fingers.

    I’ve also been whispering about Munchausen’s syndrome and Munchausen’s syndrome by Internet, both of which my daughter has and she has systematically been wrecking her life.

    Oh it was going on when she was an adolescent and in desperation I wrote an entire book about it.

    So I will, right here in public, give yon readers a perfect example of Munchausen’s and the same by Internet that you understand this bizarre obsessive disorder. And it happened just yesterday!

    She’s staying, with husband, at mother-in-law’s down the road, just for this weekend, heat is high and air conditioner is broke (which I will have to get fixed, make no mistake). She is on Facebook and she puts up a picture of herself.

    Seems they all went to the beach and Melissa’s picture shows her with A HORRIBLE SUNBURN!

    She puts up some cute thing like “well I enjoyed the beach like they said, but not so much now.”

    Ain’t she too clever by half?

    Now she is very light-skinned, blue eyed, 37 years old so should be wise enough to know that the sun wreaks havoc on such skin. Plus she is religious about slathering Kaitlyn with sun screen with an SPF of five million so don’t go thinking she don’t know there is such a thing.

    She deliberately gave herself a sunburn is what I’m saying here.....and in her Internet obsession, wants all the world to see and feel sorry for her.

    But it don’t stop there!

    Oh no!

    I been around this deceiver for too many years. Next week she will start to get blisters and in time, an infection. Her skin will mysteriously peel off in huge strips and God knows what else she’ll do to grow this into some big thing that might, if she’s lucky, have her in a hospital.

    Oh yeah the child authorities are on to her which is why my summer has been so horrible. And should you ask why I speak so publicly about this....know that the one thing that will stop these people is for as many people as possible to be on to them.

    For 23 years I’ve been on to her but for the last 12 years she’s been living 200 miles away from me and it was only until this past year when she moved across the street from me that I realized it was still going on.

    Once all this child custody stuff and protection from abuse and know that daughter’s husband is not the brightest bulb in the lamp.....

    ....well I don’t know what will happen but I am hopeful.

    Your prayers are always welcome.

    This all has been especially difficult to deal with in that Billy is not here. He is the only one....the only one who went to pick her up from school after yet another suicide threat, she banged her fists into the lockers. Billy caught her fake posts on the Internet and folks, it’s so bad NOW...at age 37 may I add?...that I actually had to unfriend her on Facebook as her posts drove me nuts.

    Yeah....still it goes on. In the last 60 days she has been in a loony bin for 42 of them. And I don’t care who knows about the fakery. The only way it will ever stop is for everybody around her to know. The professional medical people, heh.....they could care less. Plus she’s very good at it. Mancheussen syndrome people are experts at fakery.

    In July I caught her trying to give herself Lyme disease.

    I am not making this up.

    Nobody believes me.

    Did you know there is a limit on how many days one can stay in a private psychiatric facility....a LIFETIME limit? Yes. 190 days.

    She used them all and let’s not forget the six years when we had private health insurance when she spent 30 days a year, every year after the time was up (private insurance limit 30 days a year)....which adds up to about a hundred days. Lessee, that’s almost a whole year spent in a loony bin, the Sheppard Pratt pool and spa I call it, case any of you are from Baltimore.

    Please don’t forget she’s got a little girl.

    I thought Diane Feinstein did a great job on Meet the Depressed. No I don’t especially like her but she came off as level-headed yet didn’t castigate the President too much. She is a Democrat after all.

    But I’m betting Feinstein, a major player in the foreign relations committee, really doesn’t like Obama and his crew of jokeers.

    Yeah, that’s why I wrote it the LAST time, backin 2005, though I really wrote it around 2000. Had to give up all rights to the book but lookit, it’s selling.

    Publisher told me I couldn’t pull book off the market but could give up all rights. Daughter told me I would never see granddaughter again if anyone else read a word in that book.

    My knees buckled and I begged.

    Why did she insist I pull the book...and destroy all the copies I had as well?

    Because she knew the character SKY was her. I told every detail I knew. The character RALPH was my beloved Billy, who endured the torment with me. It was Ralph who caught Sky writing on Internet newsgroup telling everybody she had brain cancer! Billy....er Ralph....went on and told everybody how they were being scammed.

    Heh. It’s all in the book. After this awful summer I managed to find a copy of the book in the way back in my garage....where she would never find it. I sat and read the thing one weekend and wow, I was just so impressed that I wrote it!

    It’s a really good book. But don’t go buying it or anything. I get no profits.

    Why did she make me pull the book?

    And there is a “disease” called Munchaeussen Syndrome by Internet. I am not making this up.

    This is the link that I wrote about the constant fakery, copyrighted in 2005. I had to give up all rights to this book....again it’s part of the story. Yet they still sell it on Amazon.

    The book, which is a GREAT read, is about a woman who gets involved in a presidential campaign and catches her candidate molesting a child.

    She goes to the head of the Republican party-to show I have no prejudice, the molester is Republican-who says he will immediately pull the candidate, but of course. It was a month before the election.

    The protagonist waits and waits and nothing happens. She can’t believe a child molester would be elected president so she does some investigating.

    Finally, after discovering a huge history with her candidate-Georgette Robinson does something desperate to get the country’s ATTENTION.

    Written in 2005-the subject of the book is, of course, ATTENTION, and why sometimes we need it and must be desperate to get it. Sometimes, as one character in the book, Sky-Georgette’s daughter, might be cheating to get attention by faking sickness.

    The protagonist in this book does not know why her daughter is faking sickness of all kinds, mental and physical.

    The woman on whom the story is based, ME, is now, what? Some fifteen years later, discovering the fakery has not ceased AND I AM THE ONLY ONE WHO FIGURED IT OUT!

    I never heard of Munchaeussen syndrome when I wrote the book, in my desperation and confusion, in 2005. THAT’s how upset I was after seven years of trips to mental hospitals, fake Lupis, seizures faked....all CAUGHT by the medical professionsls!

    So I read my book in this horrible time in 2014 and....I DOCUMENTED IT ALL! I documented the fake seizures, the fake pigment to imitate Lupis, and oh yeah, mental illness, just threaten suicide and everyone jumps to cluck and sympathize.

    It ain’t easy imitating this stuff while fooling good and kind people who only want to help.

    I’ll shut up for now.

    Cause I am going to write another book. This first book I wrote is MY PROOF of what’s going on.

    So I sit and twiddle thumbs....what to do? what to do?

    So guys, below a snippet of an email I just received. Forgive me for lack of humility but I needed a ray of sunshine soooooooo bad and this is it.

    Also looks like I might get free tickets to some events. Yeah I ask for them because hey, I'm going, I write about it, I give them publicity (when I put up a post it takes many minutes to get back into the site)...so somebody should pay my way.

    Heh.

    Anyway....well this part of my life has been going well for me, let yon reader think I am loosing my happiness. Got a great story about a local guy arrested the day AFTER his election-prosecution led by Beau BIDEN-and I wrote a great piece about him. Did because a)-everything I wrote was true and b)I took a stand. Maybe more on this later

    Pat,

    Not sure I told you, but it was so comforting to receive your handshake last Monday night after my little talk at the GOP meeting. The look in your eyes, coupled with your firm handshake told my spirit, "everything is gonna be alright". I wish I could bottle you and sell to every good candidate I meet. We'd be gazillionaires. ....

    FYI...I'll be arriving late to the debate, well right on time, as I will be coming from the Teen Challenge Crab Feast and Watermelon Extravaganza at Trap Pond. I hope to see you at both events. If you don't have tickets yet, I know folks who have extra to both and would love to see them put to good use.

    Suppose the cop DID over-react and shoot the guy when he maybe should have tased?

    We DO know that the gentle giant got into fisticuffs in the guy's police vehicle, that he tried to take his gun.

    Rick Perry. This is the guy who told us peons out here in la-la land that we should be ashamed for not inviting the illegals in with open arms.

    Oh yeah! That’s when he was running for the Republican presidential nomination wasn’t it? When he wanted the money from the chambers of commerce?

    Now that he sees what those unguarded borders-which was supposed to be taken care of the LAST time we granted mass amnesty to some five million-he sings a different tune.

    Really.

    They couldn’t do better than Chuck Todd for God’s sake?

    I consider George Steponallofus to be the best Sunday talk show moderator. Then Chris Wallace.

    None of the rest are worth a mention.

    I hear tell Gregory was paid off millions to go away but just don’t go away mad.

    Next thing you know someone will find his dead body hanging from a pole and the world will mourn.

    Bray,

    I LOVED your treatise on Robin Williams.

    As a mother of a child who ALWAYS threatens suicide, I see nothing good about killing yourself.

    Robin Williams bought nothing to the table and then killed himself that his wife and children must live with. Living with suicide/suicide threats is a horrible thing.

    I too think there is way more to Williams’ suicide than we’ve been told.

    We should boo hoo for a rich guy who lived in a mansion and has a wonderful career?

    Y’all can but I won’t.

    Morning AB, All

    Been another awful week for me, but I am fine. Two words, Munchausen syndrome…...two words stabbing my life severely.

    Anyway, I sign in today because, as always, I enjoy this thread and do like to watch the Sunday talk shows.

    Thank you AB, for doing this thread. As always you provide the links and guests and monitor us quite fairly.

    Like you all, I have been watching the events in Missouri. You know what I think?

    Obama’s busy fundraising cause he knows the Dems are going to take a beating this coming election. He’s got to raise da money before the hatchet falls down and the public shows, at the voting booths, what they think of him.

    So he’s asking those people in Missouri to hold back on the details of the “gentle giant’s” crimes. The cop who shot him is in hiding and this too is part of the plan.

    This way they get Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson their day in the racist sun, Obama’s voters get a couple of days of outrage until the truth comes out.

    Yeah, I think this is all part of the plan.

    I consider Steponallofus one of the best talk show hosts around. Yeah he’s a lib but I hear he don’t like the Clintons anymore and again, of them all.....he’s going to be hosting Meet the Depressed soon.

    My prediction.

    I understand every word you wrote.

    And it gives me pause.

    I still don’t think I could race at my best (or do whatever talent at hand should I kill someone in a competition if you get the drift) had I killed someone. But then you would consider me not giving my best and you would be right.

    Then I’m a woman so that might matter.

    Maybe if Stewart were to say something, not exactly, but JUST WHAT YOU SAID....it would be great?

    Take a stand, pitch the argument.....hey, I’d be cheering.

    Anyway.....interesting development here. we shall see.

    It’s how those Arabs do.

    What you have is a bunch of sons of camels with no particular talent except their ancestors were in charge of the oil fields.

    So the population has no discernible middle class and they can’t have any kind of army as armies tend to turn on people.

    The only way the sons of camels can keep their power is to harness the restless “class” of commoners-everybody who is not involved in oil- in the form of terrorism.

    In fact those Muslims came over here many years ago and began to recruit Muslims from the jails and the disaffected black folk of the era.

    It is how Valerie Jarrett first into all this and some would say Barack. They get the academic nothing-burgers like Ayers and send a couple of those punks to college, teach them community activism and how to steal elections.

    Put a thug in charge of the justice department and we got our own little nest of wannabe terrorists right here in America.

    I mean come on, give me a couple of weeks and I could recruit you a whole bunch of nothing-burger thugs because hey, for reasons of genes and environment, some humans are born with a need to kill. It’s small matter to find them, every country has them.

    This is what this ISIS is but come on, Obama, in a fashion, is one of them.

    A bunch of thugs taking over Iraq. How sad is that?

    Dan, I dunno, maybe you’re right.

    I disagree....this is not a over-reach of political correctness.

    He accidentally killed that kid.

    Could YOU go out and race had that happened to you?

    Maybe I’m not a race car expert but it’s just a tactless thing to do.

    Trust that even if he does race I do not care. But you can bet the libs will out and boo-hooing about the thoughtless NASCAR drivers.

    I’m done.

    CHRIS COONS! I got a Chris Coons story.

    I have a Part D prescript plan that allows you, as most do, to “pre-order” your meds at their site. I just click on the box that says something to the effect “click here and your scips will automatically be refilled and mailed to you.”

    Been doing this for years, works well for me.

    Except last time I went to doctors my blood work was amazing, so said the doctor. “Let’s cut out your Tricor,” Doc said.

    Only thing, on that very day my next three months scrip of Tricor was mailed out and I couldn’t get a hold of the part D jerks to stop it.

    “Too bad,” they told me.

    Trico for three months cost ME about $175.00 so I lost that money!

    But wait! It gets better!

    For the cost to me is only 35% of the cost so the REAL cost-so they say- is almost triple that. And you get charged what the TOTAL cost is before going into the donut hole. I am, every year, over the limit and have went into that donut hole to a cost of a couple hundred bucks.

    I get samples and all from my docs to avoid this but this time I have no choice.

    So not only have I lost the $175, at year end I will go into donut hold with the almost $600 bucks this scrip cost.

    So I wrote mine Senator Chris Coons a letter and goodness they all got back to me cause I sent a letter to everyone.

    Coons’ people called me back, asked that I get a copy on my doctor’s letterhead that my doc did, indeed, stop the scrip. They couldn’t get me back the $175 but the Coons people thought they could help with the donut hole thing.

    Well they couldn’t. I just got a letter from them saying...TOO BAD!

    I mean, come on, this Part D company allows me to pre-order and I would return the pills.

    TOO BAD is what they so.

    I MUST BE PUNISHED! I must be punished to the tune of over $800 cost to me!

    Coons’ people couldn’t help.

    Also, since Coons talks about corporations....come on...Delaware is the home of corporations...or used to be.

    Now they all leave because hey, it’s Delaware, run by Democrats like Coons right into the ground.

    This past week I had to drop Bank of America for they have NO branches in Delaware!

    Had BOFA since 1988, don’t especially like them but routine and all that. Don’t hate them either.

    Bank of America will not set up in Delaware because, as they told me....”Delaware is too destructive to business.”

    Heh.

    Now Coons is some kind of business expert?

    I’m not real sure I understand your sig line. Care to expand?

    Heh, you got the Munchausen syndrome right.....I got a story that....well anyway...

    I wrote a book about it! Wrote it in 1998 but had to give up all rights to it by my daughter or she would never allow me to see my granddaughter again. So she told me.

    So I gave up all rights, burned all my copies of the book, such was my terror. Daughter always bribes me by granddaughter thread, don’t think she’d ever do it.

    So I check into Amazon, the book was copyrighted in 2005 and IT’S SELLING!

    The book is fiction, titled “Attention, Please”, it’s fiction but there are characters in it from my own life, not uncommon for writers. My publisher evidently kept the rights to my book and put it on Amazon!

    Heh. Well I meant well.

    Look it up....the plot is about a woman who catches a presidential candidate, looking like about to win, molesting a child.

    She tries to get someone’s attention and no one will do a thing about it.

    So she does something desperate.

    I sat this weekend and read that entire book and first, IT’S A GREAT BOOK!

    1998....I wrote in 1998, when my daughter was 21. Now she’s 37 and it’s the same old, same old.

    Yeah, she made me destroy the book (I told her I did but I didn’t).

    It’s a good book, seriously.

    Anyway, the story is bizarre. In fact, the protagonist writing the book states plainly that she wrote it just to tell the story of her daughter.

    Ain’t making this up.

    I might have to write another book. And this time I will make sure daughter gets a copy.

    I think you’re right RG.

    Come on, a bunch of thugs join together to start a THUGATHON and America can’t stop it?

    I pray every day that this administration does, or does NOT do, something that will incense the public.

    I’m thinking Obamy granting amnesty to millions of illegals might just be the thing but hey, they’re falling on Israel and Americans, even the LO FO voters aren’t going to take kindly to a bunch of hoodlums acting like they’re some kind of army.

    The Lamestream, I need not say, should be profiling these hoodlums, giving them the publicity they wan t.

    But no.....no.

    Anybody here see that video of NASCAR driver killing that guy? Driver’s name is Stewart.

    Man every liberal will be on TV telling us how NASCAR is full of Teabagger types and the sport should be banned.

    Sometimes NASCAR drivers even get concussions.

    I saw a video of it....come on....the kid...he’s only 20, gets out of his wrecked car AND STANDS ON THE TRACK FULL OF RACING CARS!

    People die doing that!

    Good thing the victim wasn’t black cause Obama would be out saying he looks like his son and how Stewart should be tried for mass murder.

    Sometimes victims do really dumb things.

    But I don’t think it a good idea for Stewart to race again today. It just really looks thoughtless.

    Morning AB, All

    Been an awful week but I’m okay, dogs are okay, life is okay.

    I ask y’all to look up the term Münchausen syndrome and some day, not today and not even soon, and I will share a story that will blow your collective minds.

    I even wrote a book about it.

    Anyway, thank you AB for doing this thread, Bray for his thoughtful posts and RG for showing up every week. Thanks to the rest of you and your fine input as well.

    I’ve taken to writing a “National Scene” post for my Delaware Blog (and more great stories some day about this) every Monday and, of course, I use this thread as source.

    Take care and will be watching and opinionating.

    It’s what I do.
