Between and Rock and an Oppressive, Democratic Place

Nothing makes you feel good about your state like the Wall Street Journal pointing at the collective heads of knuckle we call state legislators and laughing. Politicians in Annapolis are scratching their heads wondering what happened to all those chain smokers who were supposed to help balance Maryland’s budget. Last year the legislature doubled the [...]

Yes, Maryland Drivers Stink. But I Can Help!

| May 24, 2008 | Comments (0)

This surprises me not at all. A survey commissioned by General Motors Acceptance Corp. ranks Maryland motorists near the bottom when it comes to the knowledge of driving laws. In the Atlanta-based financial giant’s fourth annual National Drivers Test, Kansas placed first at 84 percent for most knowledgeable drivers, Maryland ranks No. 42 — and [...]

Today Your Car; Tomorrow the Totalitarian State?

| February 26, 2008 | Comments (2)

Okay, civil libertarians, it’s about the time where the rubber hits the road. We’ve heard a lot of talk from some quarters about how our rights are being eroded right out from underneath us thanks to seven years of His Fascist Chimpitude. Now, I’ve yet to actually see one of these eroded rights, but I [...]

Governor O’Malley vs. Representative Democracy

| April 11, 2007 | Comments (6)

This is a really bad idea. Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley signed into law yesterday a measure that would circumvent the Electoral College by awarding the state’s electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the most votes nationwide.

The guy who wants to be Maryland’s junior Senator just anointed himself the Dumbest Man Running For Office on the Eastern Seaboard and also lost himself the election. Here’s what he said. “…well, first let me point out in [...]

You Have Chosen Poorly, Governor.

| June 29, 2006 | Comments (2)

My Governor, Robert Ehrlich, has chosen his running mate for the coming election. Her name is Kristen Cox and she currently serves as Maryland’s secretary of disablities. No, I’ve never heard of her or her Cabinet position until today either. She’s spent most of her career after college either as a lobbyist or as a [...]

The Bush Budget and 9/11 - Just Exactly The Same

| February 9, 2005 | Comments (3)

Well, never let it be said that Democrats can’t rachet up the hyperbole. Baltimore Mayor Martin O’Malley yesterday compared President Bush’s proposed budget cuts to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, saying that Bush, like the al Qaeda hijackers who crashed planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, has launched an assault on [...]
