Guess where the country’s highest incomes are? Think government contractors. A great map.

Multicultural fascism

13 Apr

First you legalize gay marriage, and then…

Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and to a lesser degree its immediate neighbors, Lewes, and Bethany Beach, have become the vacation spots for gays (and others) from nearby Baltimore, Richmond, Philadelphia, and above all D.C.

Brietbart.com and Peter Schweitzer could do a whole segment of their “Boomtown” investigations on DC and its Maryland and Virginia suburbs being the wealthiest counties in America by extending it to the price escalation and D.C. absentee ownership of beach property in Rehoboth.  David Brock, founder of Media Matters for America, had a house there where he hosted Democratic Party fundraisers.  At least one well paid gay Sierra Club lobbyist has a house there.  And a friend of mine who became an instant AOL millionaire when his AOL stock options vested became one of Rehoboth’s first gay council members, as well as moving there from DC to build spec homes as a hobby.

It’s a lovely community in many ways and very gay friendly (you can find travel advice by me on line about Rehoboth).  The gays there from Baltimore and other towns tend to look down on D.C. gays slightly in much the way Baltimoreans spoof DC yuppies who move to Baltimore in a John Waters movie – they have too much money, are pretentious, and pushy.

This week Rehoboth seems to have unleashed the police powers to get rid of the annoying heterosexuals who keep coming to the gay resort town.  Of course that’s an exaggeration.  Rehoboth is still majority straight, both in population and government.  But it does show that one can be progressively multicultural and inclusive while being increasingly fascist.  Like a black president who expands executive powers and kills brown kids around the world with drones.

Man in cuffs tazed, kicked by police while his pregnant wife screams Rehoboth DE

A man was tazed repeatedly and kicked in the head by police while he was in handcuffs inRehoboth BeachDelaware. His wife, who was eight and a half months pregnant, watched and recorded the event, begging the police to stop tazing him. Throughout the disturbing and graphic video, the wife’s voice may be heard, begging the three police officers surrounding her husband to let her take him home. She screams “stop tazing him”, and moves in close as an officer, she identifies as “Robert Whitman”, begins to taze her husband in the face and head while he’s on the ground in handcuffs. “What is wrong with you,” the pregnant wife screams as Whitman kicks her husband in the face. The video, uploaded Thursday, includes in the description that the man, identified as Jeremy, was tazed by police 13 times.
Rehoboth Beach is a small, resort town in Delaware. Described as “a welcoming, friendly, Delaware community”, the town boasts a population of 1,300 people during the winter but swells to over 35,000 with tens of thousands more nearby during the summer. Jeremy and his wife were visiting Rehoboth Beach on April 7, 2013, as thousands do every year. The season in Rehoboth Beach has just begun, meaning many of the seasonal police officers specially trained in “Bicycle Patrol Operations”, are not on patrol in the town yet. Rehoboth Beach Police state on their website that they are authorized to have “19 full-time sworn police officers”. During the off-season their police force drops to a staff of around ten. Corporal Robert Whitman, the officer seen kicking Jeremy in the head and tazing him in face, has a LinkedIn profile showing his employment as a “Corporal at Rehoboth Beach Police”, meaning Whitman is most likely employed by the small beach town all year.
The town of Rehoboth, known for its beaches and food, is now making a name for itself in a new way as word of this graphic video spreads. The man identified as Jeremy is yelling, screaming, and cursing as he is repeatedly tazed and kicked while in handcuffs. As Jeremy’s wife questions police in the video, police state Jeremy is being detained for “resisting”. The pregnant woman is told to “go where you have to go or we’ll arrest you too”. No one at the City of Rehoboth Beach was available for comment.

DC Mayor takes credit for Boomtown economy

29 Jan
Mayor Gray seems to think he helped make DC richer, as new agencies like TSA and DHS and expanding older agencies, imported childless singles and couples into DC, people who often make 6 figure salaries while never using public schools, jails, libraries, etc.

Dear Friend –

Earlier today I was pleased to announce that the District ended Fiscal Year 2012 with a healthy budget surplus of $417 million. This news is compelling evidence that the District’s finances are among the strongest of any jurisdiction in the nation. The District’s increasingly strong financial outlook, coupled with impressive job growth and a falling unemployment rate, is affirmation that our economic development strategies are working. With 55 construction cranes dotting our skyline, I can truly say that the amount of development in the District right now is unprecedented.

As we start the new year, I also wanted to take a moment to share with you the results of my administration at the end of 2012, my second year in office. As you will note, we’ve made tremendous progress in a short amount of time. On our watch:

* The District’s economy is booming, with more than 28,000 private sector jobs created over the past two years and the unemployment rate falling by nearly three percentage points;

* The District has hit a 50-year low in homicides – with the numbers dropping dramatically each of the last two years and nearly twenty times faster than the national average;

* The District is growing rapidly – adding more than 1,100 people a month – and is now more populous than both Vermont and Wyoming. The District has not had this many residents since the 1970s;

* Public education enrollment is now at nearly 81,000 students and is growing at a rate not seen in 45 years as families return to the city and to public education; and

* Fiscal responsibility has been restored – the District now spends only what it takes in and the practice of raiding the District’s reserves to balance the budget has been eliminated. In addition, the city’s long-term fiscal health has again been protected by growing our critical rainy-day fund back to $1.5 billion.

I’ve attached a copy of my administration’s Report on Year Two and you can also read it online here:www.mayor.dc.gov/publication/gray-administration-year-two-reporthttp://www.mayor.dc.gov/publication/gray-administration-year-two-report>

The District’s increasing economic strength is strong evidence that our city has fully emerged from the country’s worst economic crisis in our lifetime more vibrant and stronger than before. It also means we have an opportunity to make several key strategic investments in affordable housing, our workforce, and public safety for which previously we did not have the necessary funds. I invite you to join me at my 2013 State of the District Address next Tuesday, February 5th at 7:00 PM at the Historic Sixth and I Synagogue where I will outline my plan to make these critical investments.

Thank you for partnering with me and my administration to keep the District moving forward and growing in a prosperity in which all can share.

Vince
Executive Office of the Mayor
