don’t like kicking a guy when’s he down, but few people deserve it more than Jonathan Taylor, house blogger of Salisbury’s Barrie Comegys party. Still facing criminal charges after being slapped with a judicial order related to his harassment of local resident Donna Ennis, Taylor just can’t shut up and let things blow over.
Taylor is infamous for promising to stop some of his nastier behavior and then simply doubling down. C’mon, when you go after people’s kids (as he has done with the children of Salisbury councilwomen Debbie Campbell and Terry Cohen) we have moved from bad taste to pathology.
Since being slapped by a judge last week, Taylor has since promised that his site would be going “invitation only” (a means of libeling decent folk without them being able to see it) to reneging on that claim and promising that his comments would no longer be moderated and that anonymous comments would no longer be permitted.
This was not true from the start. Any moron can set up an account on Blogger and comment. They can do so anonymously, unless you want to call a handle like “Moron123456” not anonymous. While Taylor certainly has a history of being a liar, and a pretty nasty one at that, I won’t call him a liar on this one. He’s probably just too stupid to understand that commenting as “Moron 123456” is no different than commenting as Anonymous.
Now Taylor claims that he no longer reads SbyNEWS. He’s even gone so far as to claim that he’s locked himself out of his own internet router to keep him from seeing his favorite website. Personally, I could care less. It’s just that Taylor must have a really low opinion of his few readers (most of whom are probably people like me, who only check out to see how low the man can go) to believe that we would believe that he would lock himself out of his own internet router (which can simply be reset back to the original password anyway).
We’ll see if Taylor is even able to stop mentioning SbyNEWS on his site. Given the nasty case of “man-love” Taylor appears to have for SbyNEWS publisher Joe Albero, I doubt it.
As for those of you wondering why I would waste disk space and bandwidth on this guy, the explanation is fairly simple – Taylor is the kind of guy who gives justification to those who want to regulate the blogosphere. In other words, he’s dangerous. We’re seeing that with the filing of civil and criminal complaints against him.

With the U.S. Census process beginning, the identity theft.
The first phase of the 2010 U.S. Census is under way as workers (BBB) advises people to be cooperative, but cautious, so as not to become a victim of fraud or
have begun verifying the addresses of households across the country.
Eventually, more than 140,000 U.S. Census workers will count every person in the
The big question is - How do you tell the difference between a
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) offers the following advice:
** If a U.S. Census worker knocks on your door, they will have the following:
1. a badge ,
2. a hand held device,
3. a Census Bureau canvas bag, and
4. a confidentiality notice.
Ask to see their identification and their badge before answering their questions.
However, you should never invite anyone you don't know into your home.
** Census workers are currently only knocking on doors to verify address information.
Do not give your Social Security number, credit card or banking information to anyone, even if they claim they need it for the U.S. Census.
While the Census Bureau might ask for basic financial information, such as a salary range, it will not ask for Social Security, bank account, or credit card numbers nor will employees solicit donations.
Eventually, Census workers may contact you by telephone, mail, or in person at home.
However, they will not contact you by Email, so be on the lookout for Email scams impersonating the Census.
Never click on a link or open any attachments in an Email that is supposedly from the U.S. Census Bureau.
TO RECAP – HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF – FOLLOW THESE RULES!!!!
1. Census workers will carry a badge, a hand held device, a Census Bureau canvas bag, and a confidentiality notice. MAKE SURE TO ASK THEM FOR THEIR BADGE AND IDENTIFICATION BEFORE TALKING TO THEM!
2. Census workers will NOT ask for Bank Account Numbers, Credit Card Numbers, or any specific account information!
, 3. Census workers will NOT solicit for donations – do not give anyone any money!
4. Census Workers will NOT contact you by email – do not respond to anyone claiming to be with the US Census by email!
5. Don't invite them into your homes!!

Here's Obama's latest assault on our rights-- He wants to ban sport fishing.
Obama may enjoy fishing but he won't let you.
The American Sportfishing Association reported:
A sweeping oceans and Great Lakes management policy document proposed by the Obama Administration will have a significant impact on the sportfishing industry, America’s saltwater anglers and the nation’s coastal communities. The draft policy, the Interim Report of the Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force, issued on September 17, will govern federal Pacific and Atlantic Ocean waters and Great Lakes resource conservation and management and will coordinate these efforts among federal, state and local agencies. This past June, President Obama created the Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force, led by the Chair of the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), to develop a draft national policy and implementation strategy for conserving and managing the United States ocean territory and the Great Lakes.VIA
“In regards to recreational fishing specifically, it is a long-standing policy of the federal government to allow public access to public lands and waters for recreational purposes consistent with sound conservation including the nation’s wildlife refuges, national forests, and national parks and should be reflected in a national policy for the oceans and Great Lakes. In fact, the use of public resources by recreational anglers is essential to the conservation model used in this country for fish and wildlife management,” said ASA Ocean Resource Policy Director Patty Doerr.
Doerr further said, “As with any good federal policy decision, discussions about measures that may restrict public access to public resources must involve an open public process, have a solid scientific basis and incorporate specific guidelines on implementation and follow-up. We are very concerned about the abbreviated 90 day timeline which forced the Task Force to issue this policy document prematurely. The implications of such a policy are vast and nationwide. Therefore, the review process should be very deliberate and go well beyond the 30 days public review and comment period which started on September 17.” The Task Force's Interim Report is currently under a 30-day public review and comment period.
Since 1950, with the passage of the Sport Fish Restoration Act, anglers and the sportfishing industry have provided the bulk of funding for fisheries conservation and management in the United States through fishing license fees and the federal manufacturers excise tax on recreational fishing equipment. According to NOAA Fisheries, saltwater anglers contribute over $82 billion annually to the economy. Despite taking only three percent of the saltwater fish harvested each year, the recreational sector creates nearly half the jobs coming from domestic saltwater fisheries.

The same will happen if obamacare passes, they want to control every aspects of life and business.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi joined a growing liberal chorus calling for a massive tax hike through the implementation of a value added tax (VAT). A VAT is similar to a national sales tax. Businesses would pay it at each stage of the production process and consumers at the cash register. European countries have had VATs for years. As we pointed out earlier this year, Congress should not pass a VAT to pay for a government takeover of the health care system or expand the size of government. If it does so, it will be a massive tax hike:
Just a 1 percent VAT on all goods and services in the economy would raise $63 billion for Congress to spend each year. Some suggest the VAT rate should be set as high as 20 percent. At that rate, a VAT that covers all goods and services in the economy – including food, clothing, housing, and health care – would collect an additional $1,260 billion a year and cost every
Even if Congress passes a VAT that has a rate of just a few percentage points, it would likely lead to higher rates in the future. Evidence from other countries that already have VATs show once it is on the books the rate tends to rise over time.
The American people would be better off if Congress stopped spending and instead reformed existing entitlements to make them more affordable and effective. Adding a new entitlement will only make the country’s fiscal situation worse and make painful tax hikes more likely.
Unfortunately, that might have been the plan all along.

Cook says the buck probably became entangled when he rubbed his antlers on a tree. He says the department is keeping an eye on the animal, but so far it seems to be full of mule-tide cheer.
Cook says similar incidents have happened previously, including a deer with a swing in its antlers and another sporting a clothes line, complete with clothing. The deer usually lose the accessories when they shed their antlers.
Chincoteague Police Chief Eddie Lewis told council Monday, “We’ve not had that many vicious dogs.” He said there were only two in the last decade and both were “put down.”
“I don’t think we need to just discuss this one,” said Councilman Terry Howard, who recently was threatened by two dogs. “We need to give it more consideration … I’m not taking this lightly. If one child were taken down by one of these dogs … the money (for training and equipment) would be well spent. You either act or react. It’s too late after it does happen.”
Poulson said there are three categories of dogs: vicious, dangerous and running at large. The owners of the ones designated as dangerous by the court must post signs on their property and take out a liability policy for $100,000. The court generally orders that a vicious dog be killed, Poulson said.
The council should “adopt a parallel ordinance,” the attorney continued. “I want to make sure it is appropriate and who will enforce it. I want to look at the thing and fine-tune it.”
Councilman Jim Frese was against spending town funds for animal control since the county already provides the service.
Michael Connelly of Carrollton, Texas is a Constitutional lawyer and has read the entire health care bill and
has some comments, not about the bill, but about the effects on our Constitution. It's a broader picture than just
health care reform.
It's time we sit up and pay attention; once this sort of thing happens, it will be irreversible. We have reason to be
very afraid of what is happening.
THE TRUTH ABOUT THE HEALTH CARE BILLS
Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200:
The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise,
constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be
What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.
To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true,
despite what the Democrats and the media are saying.
The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where
senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved,
free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and
probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.
The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business and
put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately
be made by federal bureaucrats and most of them will not be health care professionals.
Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices
will be strictly controlled.
However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have
concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health
care choices. Instead, it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the
Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated.
If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United
States will effectively have been destroyed.
The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the
Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The
Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority
in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people
and the businesses they own. The irony is that the Congress doesn't have any authority
to legislate in most of those areas to begin with.
I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the
members of Congress to regulate health care.
This legislation also provides for access by the appointees of the Obama
administration to all of your personal healthcare information,
your personal financial information, and the information of your
employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a direct violation of the
specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution
protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures.
You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into
oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.
If you decide not to have healthcare insurance or if you have private insurance that
is not deemed "acceptable" to the "Health Choices Administrator" appointed by Obama
there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a "tax" instead of a fine because of the
intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment.
However, that doesn't work because since there is nothing in the law that allows
you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of
property without the "due process of law.
So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much out of the original
ten in the Bill of Rights that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn't stop there though. The 9th
Amendment that provides: "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed
to deny or disparage others retained by the people." The 10th Amendment states:
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited
by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the
states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.
I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea.
This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights.
Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to "be bound by oath or
affirmation" to support the Constitution. If I were a member of Congress, I would not be able to vote for
this legislation or anything like it without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted
for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.
For those who might doubt the nature of this threat I suggest they consult the source.
Here is a link to the Constitution:
And another to the Bill of Rights:
There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

A man inspects the scene after a minivan crashed through an apartment wall in Lanham, Md., on Oct. 5.
Police say a man was teaching his friend to drive when the accident occurred just after 10 a.m. Monday.
Authorities say the driver was in the country illegally and didn't have a license. They say the man's friend didn't have a license either. Both are charged with reckless endangerment, and the driver has also been charged with driving without a license.
Well, he probably knew that was the case, and 14 years earlier he probably sent replacement materials, but he wasn't able to find out what was actually in the package.
The package arrived empty and damaged. It was torn open and the contents were missing. Paul reports he has no idea what was in the package and his records for customers 14 years ago are long gone. He said the only way he could even tell the age of the package was that it had his company's shipping number and company label on the damaged package. In fact the address for the shipment was his home address from which he ran the business at the time.
What's really incredible is that the UPS tracked down the business to its current location, which has changed numerous times, just to deliver an empty, damaged package. UPS even offered to pay a claim on the package, but there's one big problem. Paul needs to know what was in the package before he can file a claim and he has no idea given the package is so old.He did talk with a UPS customer service rep, who he said was laughing about it. Given that's it's so old it may be something to laugh about, but I'll bet Paul wasn't laughing when he first found out the package didn't arrive. The UPS customer service person told him he could still file a claim in the future if he can ever figure out what was lost.

One of the most unseemly displays of the 2000 election was the disgusting sight of Al Gore's lawyers high-fiving each other after disqualifying hundreds of military ballots on minor technicalities.
And, just this week, --- whose governor also happens to be the chairman of the Democrat National Committee --- went to court to disenfranchise military voters in that state's upcoming elections.
The Virginia State Board of Elections argued in their most recent filing that they have no legal obligation to send out military absentee ballots in a timely manner. Restated, the State of Virginia has argued in a federal court filing that they can legally send out absentee ballots to active duty soldiers the day before an election. Restated again, the Democratic Chairwoman of the Virginia State Board of Election (appointed by the Chair Tim Kaine, in his capacity as Virginia Governor) Jean Cunningham just claimed a legal basis for massively raising the barrier to voting for soldiers at war.
Disgusting, but this is how Democrats operate. They oppose common sense ID requirements that would protect against vote fraud, while disenfranchising the votes of men and women serving in

The Pope leans towards Mrs. Pelosi and said, “Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display, like that of your followers, but go deep into their hearts and for the rest of their lives whenever they speak of this day they will rejoice!”
Pelosi replied, “I seriously doubt that with one little wave of your hand? Show me.”

Pocomoke City, Maryland (October 1, 2009) – American Sport Motorcycle manufacturer Fischer Motor Company of Pocomoke City, Maryland is pleased to announce a production increase for the 2010 MRX Sport motorcycle.
After shipping their first production units just this past summer, Fischer has been receiving orders at an increasing rate.
“We always knew that once people discovered the value of the MRX, we wouldn’t be able to build them fast enough,” says FMC president Dan Fischer, “and even though we’re increasing production, we’re still a very small company, and each MRX is hand built- right here in the United States.”
With many of the first units going overseas to Australia and Europe, there are very few of these beautiful motorcycles riding around the highways of the US, but MRX owners are getting a lot of use out of their bikes. “Because of the standard Ohlins suspension, Brembo brake parts, and GP chassis, people think of the MRX only as a track bike.” continues Fischer. “But the comfortable riding position, the plush leather seat, and the great electronics package make the MRX an excellent all-day sport-tourer, too. Our customers are putting thousands of reliable miles on them, and we’re so glad to see that everyone just loves their MRX.”
With this long-awaited production increase, you may soon see an MRX in your neighborhood, or at your local racetrack.
Dealership and race sponsorship opportunities are now available for the beautiful and exotic MRX.
