After Much Consideration…

My friends and readers of this site. I want to sincerely apologize to you for having no content over the past 2 months. It has been a terrible period in my life and one that has made me question the point of even continuing to run this site. Each time when I would check in with my help I was told the same comments about how I suck , shut the site down , I’m a worthless fat f@#*k#r, how much I’m hated, die etc would be sent in via anonymous comment. I really wondered to myself why should I even continue to do this when I most certainly don’t have to.

I am not the Jonathan Taylor Of 2008 with the Grinch mask and gloves. That was a different place and time when I felt the need to defend myself against people who were out to destroy me. I can tell you and I’m being honest here, I don’t have the same passion for it as I did all those years ago. I have accomplished more than I could have ever dreamed of with this site so honestly I have nothing left to prove. The local political scene has improved dramatically over the past 6 years or so, and good people are pretty much to be found in all areas.

The few politicians left that I have had issues with, I just don’t hate anymore. If I didn’t do this site and they didn’t do politics we would never have conflict with each other so I can’t blame them for our differences. I know I made an unpopular decision in regards to a certain subject I said was no longer allowed on here, but I’m telling you when you take stock of what really makes you happy in life why would you want to take anymore time from that.

A few weeks back I was at dinner locally and was thinking over these same thoughts of just walking away to focus on more positive things in my life. This is no lie. I’m sitting there and a guy walks over from his table and says hey JT it’s nice to meet you I appreciate what you do because I travel alot and know I can rely on you tell me what’s happening locally. I was like well thank you for that and thanks for being a reader even though I have been away.

I think I have found a place where I can be here provide local stuff and actually enjoy it. I don’t care about being #1 or having x number of visitors to feel accomplished anymore which is a freeing feeling. That doesn’t mean however that I won’t be mean when it’s warranted and believe me I have two things that I’m going to expose here very shortly.

This weekend is Memorial Day and I want everyone to enjoy it friend and foe alike. When this holiday weekend is over look for regular posting to begin again on Tuesday the 28th. I will be adding some fun stuff as well so we can all have a break from the bad news that seems to be everywhere these days.

Thank you again to all who reached out, will be back with you all soon.

  1. Jt, First I want to say welcome back. Second we have missed your regular posts about what is happening locally. It seems that the major news networks are either focused on national news or on stuff that no one really cares about. It would be great if you could include weekly of some fun things to do with the family since it is hard to find one spot that lists the local happenings. Again thanks for all you do!

  3. Awesome man. Remember that negative people are often the loudest. Positive people are not…so when someone is talking sh*t, they are just insecure about themselves.

  4. You Suck! LOL just kidding. Welcome Back! I think instead of a lot of focus going on with politics crime and other important issues would be good. Like for instance how come the Eden puppy mill operator’s trial has now been postponed for the 8th time.

  5. Yawn. Jonathan, you’re my buddy. A true friend. I mean that. However, I’m just being honest. You can’t constantly reboot, reinvent, find yourself, be introspective and become enlightened. This is, like, the 42nd time you have had this same exact post. It’s always about some “realization” and “awakening” that you have had and how you’re going to change. First, you’re going to let post fly. No moderation. Then, you’re going to moderate. Next, you are going to fix this. Then, you are going to change that. All ANYBODY wants is consistency and the feeling that they KNOW what they are going to get when they come to this site.

    Stop trying to reinvent the wheel. You have been very successful and have a core group that have been with you all along. Me included. Just because you allow unmoderated comments doesn’t make you hateful or an ass. It is NO reflection of YOU as a person. You are providing an outlet for other to speak where, without you, they would have NO voice. You are the champion of the “little guy”. The guy/girl who is out there busting their ass everyday, working hard, paying taxes and generally being shit on by the overlord fucktards. You give the little guy a voice. A power to fight back when they otherwise couldn’t. I’m asking you to reconsider your position. Let people comment without restriction. THAT is how we learn things that would otherwise be buried.

      1. Advocacy is something you’re good at. The “Buried in the Backyard” episode of the Sheddy case was on TV again not long ago and no doubt your blog was influential in keeping that investigation going.

        I look forward to you continuing this blog in some fashion. Opinions on the news of the day would especially be interesting. There needs to be oversight on issues and occurrences especially in Wicomico County because we all know the daily fish wrapper isn’t covering much of anything except the latest brew pub or restaurant opening.

  7. I appreciate what you are saying and what you do and look forward to more local posts. Please keep the Open Discussion going so that we can inform the public of the bad stuff that B.N. Bob is doing to the county. That way other posts won’t get their threads hijacked by off post comments. I and many others enjoy the open discussions.

    Thanks and hope your life is back to normal.

    1. Ditto that.

      Jon, PLEASE keep the spotlight on Culver’s scams and shenanigans. He just gave his babe another higher paying job and won’t let county employees talk to members of the Council. He even ordered Weston Young not to discuss the budget with the Council this week.

      3. Young is not the real problem, its Strausberger. He won’t stand up to Culver and even attacks Council members for BNB especially behind their backs.

        And Bassett is part of the problem with his effort to creare controversy and trying to present Culver as being a fearless leader and not exposing the real facts and truth about him.

  8. Big Nose Bob sent out a memo telling all County Employees not to talk to any County Council member or they would be in Violation of Charter #314.

    Not submitting his names for appointments to the County Council within 6 months of the election for council confirmation or denial is in violation of the County Charter. Big Nose Bob thinks he is above the law. Time for someone to take his ass out of office. RECALL!! Jail time!

    2. Anyone else remember when Culver was first elected and said he would work with the Council? What a bad joke that was. And his kids are now on the County payroll.

      Glad to see that John Cannon and the other Republican members and Mr. Davis, too, are standing up to Big Nose. Not sure about McCain, he could be trouble just like he was before. Hastings seems OK so far.

      1. Bill McCain is working with Culver to screw over the council members because he doesn’t like Republicans and he is still pissed that they didn’t give him the job as President. Hastings is not Ok, Hastings follows the lead of McCain just like a puppet. Ernie Davis isn’t much better. Don’t you pay attention and watch PAC 14 on how they vote on issues? McCain is an arrogant smart ass that wants to be President so he can make sure that the county gives school teachers pay raises and his wife gets pay raises. Greedy bastard. You need to pay attention more on PAC 14.

  13. Why don’t we talk about something worthwhile that affects all of us. Let’s talk about scrapple. There’s Kirby & Holloway and then there’s Rapa. There are a few minor brands but these two are what 95% of us eat. As for me, I much prefer Rapa because Kirby & Holloway is just too mushy for me. Rapa used to be much better but they changed their recipe a few years ago but it’s still better than most of the others. I think they make another brand, Greensboro or something like that. It’s good but I still prefer the original Rapa.

    Now isn’t that better to talk about than Culver, Ennis, John Cannon and all that crap? Life is too short to be all upset by crap like that. Think about the good things like food and drink and chasing women. You might or might not live any longer but you will be happier.

      1. It may be more interesting but worrying about it will give you ulcers or a heart attack. You can’t do anything about it because governments have been corrupt since prehistoric times. Even Thomas Jefferson and John Adams accused each other of being vile, corrupt grifters. And then there was Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr and it killed Hamilton, didn’t it? Have some fun in your life, drink liquor, eat crabs and chase women.

  14. I read that the places serving steamed crabs in Ocean City are backing away from “Old Bay” Seasoning…..they won’t get my money! Nothing any better than Old Bay….I keep Old Bay can, Frank’s Red Hot bottle and ketchup in my truck everyday!!! I go to a place to eat and neither are available….quick run to the truck and I’m in business! I will use Texas Pete hot sauce in a pinch for Franks……Eastern Shore Redneck.

    1. I agree. Cholula is still made only in Mexico and it contains piquin peppers and some arbol peppers, too. Some sources have rated it as high as 3,600 Scoville units so it’s some kind of hot. But the question is…are you brave enough to put it on your RAPA scrapple?

    Bad news for you. A survey of thirty (30) MD crab houses showed that only one (1) used Old Bay. Part of the problem is that Old Bay only comes in 5 pound bags max, the other brands come in 50 or 100 pound bags.
