DE State Message to former DUI - WE DON'T WANT YOU!
Regardless of how much people can and will change, and despite the hardships they have to endure and overcome with having a DUI, Delaware law prevents most DUI folks from ever obtaining a license again.

According to the +delawaredmv a person has to have insurance before they can get a license.  Problem is no one will give them insurance WITHOUT a license!!! The Catch 22 of the Chicken and Egg lawmaking here in Delaware. 

Some, like +State Farm Insurance and +Nationwide outright refuse to insure someone with a DUI.  +GEICO Insurance said they would insure but only if the person actually had a license.  So how can someone get insurance without a license or get a license without insurance??  According to +delawaredmv they don't care. Not their problem....

This is a major problem for those who have done everything in the law and to go through the programs, get their life straight, and then be told, in essence, we don't want you.

+Governor Markell and the other lawmakers needs to update the law to give some hope to those who are trying to get back on the road - sober - and not be a burden to the state via unemployment, food stamps, et al.

A Solution
First, require all auto insurance companies to have the option to insure folks with DUI, and to have a way to report agencies that want to charge to much that it is outright price gouging.

Second, the state offer an insurance for those coming back from DUI/DWI.  This will give folks some hope of returning to the streets.

Third, have an option beyond the Interlock Device. Maybe a phase two program that allows folks to report for continued meetings for accountability and testing. Something that isn't going to cost a person $200 a month when they are already paying $$$$$$ for insurances.  Especially true for those with first time DUI convictions.

A dear friend of mine has hit this wall. Having done all, and this being her only DUI of record, they still treat her like a leper. Having never told her what she would face, either by the courts, or in the programs she went to faithfully, now faces $1,000 just to get started driving again.

I agree there are some folks that this punishment is fair. Those who have cause great harm in their actions. Yet for first time offenders this seems to be the path set by the Delaware government for anyone who would dare offend the law.  The "*Once Convicted Always The Criminal*" mentality.

The only thing I can say for such folks, I hope you enjoy the Lake of Fire as much as you do with your gestapo laws.

Personally, I look forward to the day I can leave this state.....meanwhile I'll continue to call on those in government to make fair laws. Laws that make sense and allow for mercy.  Presently, there is no mercy in Delaware....

We tried progressive but they only pointed us to Nationwide who would not give insurance.

My employer is just about to buy some new Samsung tablets to replace the most battered of our Nexus Sevens.
They will have the same security software as everything else. I wouldn't be able to get them on the MDM if it didn't.

You know your getting old when...
I used to tell my parents that I'll never have as many pill bottles of meds to take as they had. Sad to think I officially had to go on heart meds this week. Along with my alien face hugger (CPAP machine), I guess the transformation from middle age to old age is complete...

+Samsung Support USA Gives us the Finger
Or should I say wants more finger?
Android 6.0.1 upgrade is being rolled out to various platforms and devices. When it comes to the Samsung 6 and the fingerprint reader, this changes the way you access your device, and how long you expect the device to live. In this upgrade the fingerprint lock screen no longer works. Its all password security now. Forget the days of quick access to your screens to get you productive and online again. Forget being in a rush and just resting your finger on the bar and having the time to quick access an app or notification and getting out of your device.

NOW you have to input your password EVERY TIME and pray you didn't fat finger it and lock yourself out by forgetting the password (as most of folks tend to do).

+Samsung Support USA this is an option that is pretty low blow. Security should not be forced on the user who accesses the phone. I might as well go back to swiping the screen. I need access to my device quick!! Get in, reply to text, get out. Nuf said. But sadly there lacks a way to get your company to listen to anything us users need or require. No warning of changes. No asking us what we would like. Nothing. At least not here in the USA.

I think it is time that I consider options into other devices. Ones without locked boot loaders and the ability to load custom ROMS that will provide the level of security I want, encryption options I need, quality communications (unlike 6.0.1 which has been noted as having a flaky wifi now)

In Closing
Needless to say I'm more than miffed about the new security on 6.0.1.  Lucky for me there are other options but maybe not as secure.  Some lockscreen apps allow for fingerprint unlocking. PIN passwords are good too but not secure as a password.

Needless to say, to have something change as major as a security that affects the way user access to their devices this only bespeaks of a company fully disconnected with their client/user base.

Delaware Sufferage
It would seem that +Governor Markell​ has an open heart to letting those with past felony convictins, and who have served all their time and commitments to the state, to allow them the right to vote. Sadly, the media only covers what is already allowed by law, and seeminly he seeks to ride the coattails of Virginia's governor in media attention on the rights of former felon voting.

The reality is that Delaware law ignores the restoration of rights granted by other states to former felons. If a felon in Virginia is granted the rights to vote - regardless of crime - after they have served all of their commitments to the state and the courts, Delaware will not allow that restoration to be recognized in the state of Delaware. Those with violent crimes are ignored. Regardless of the years they have been productive citizens to the state.

+Governor Markell​ how about recognizing the states were the offender originally offended and since have had their rights restored? How about saying that if you want to limit the rights restoration that it only applies to those sentenced in Delaware, and only those who have been sentenced since the invocation of the law.

How about showing that Delaware is capable of interstate trust and support of restoration of rights and the promotion of family. Even now you have this with those who were married in other states and where such marriage might not be allowed due to state laws.

How about a constitutional amendment to honor the decision of other states to restore those worthy of restoration - in accordance to the originating state.

As one of those former Virginia felons, and having my rights to vote restored by Virginia, I sadly remain unable to vote in the state of my birth. A state where I have no convictions. A state that I returned to and for the past eight years have been a tax paying, hard working, man, father, husband, and yes - former felon.

You want to talk to me about having served your time and being restored after you have done all to prove to all you have fulfilled your requirements and responsibilities, and continue to be a contributing citizen of Delaware, then let's see it on paper. Lets see the full restoration of the right to vote!

That's great, +Joseph Lundine, and I'm glad for you. Part of being a man (a real man) is protecting the weak. Not beating your effing chest and declaring "Me not like him! Me 110% man". When you do that, you make yourself less of a man. Yes! Real men wonder what is wrong with you, and you are much less desirable in the eyes of normal women.
I'm glad we could have this talk. Now remember what I told you, about protecting those physically weaker than you.

Introduction
WHO I AM...
Father, Grandfather, friend, Computer Wizard from the old school.  Family caregiver to my elder family members.  Provider for those in need - even when I have less than they.  One who has had his past cauterized by addiction and who has overcome.

Rededicated to ministry and family.  Boldly standing against those who ignore the person in the present and still seek to condemn the person because of his past. 

Worker, Writer, and Prison Minister.

Society's ultimate paradox and insult - a bad guy turn good. And proud of it.  May your life be so blessed.

DISCLAIMER
I do not socialize with, nor circle children, minors, anyone who wants to be gansta', uncivil, foul mouthed, anyone who takes great pains to bash Christians, Jews, or Judaism.

I do not circle anyone who's profile is spartan, has limited posts, or uses their profile exclusively as a marketing tool.

I do not chat in Hangouts with individuals who feel they have to talk to me the moment they create a profile, fail to fill in their profile, or their personal information lacks validity (i.e if you lack an Internet footprint).  Nor do I chat with "females" who have freshly created profiles and/or are young enough to be one of my children.  Romance scammers and other scammers can seek other victims.

There are other things that will get you either excluded from being circled, or get blocked by me.

Be a civil adult. Be open, honest, and someone who enjoys social dialog and willing to give a peaceful place for rebuttals and you will gain the honor of being someone I circle/follow.

I look forward to meeting new friends, even if they disagree with me.

God Bless.

A nice place to eat at a reasonable price. A great choice to get away from fast food but not pay the high prices of a resort restaurant. Staff is great and the food good. If there is a problem they work to resolve it and insure you have enjoyed your stay.
