MD Democrat: IT’S MY JOB TO TALK AND YOUR JOB TO LISTEN

Apr 28, 2013 - Maryland, Politics, Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

At a park scheduled to become a new elementary school, Baltimore County executive Kevin Kamenetz showed true Democrat colors this week when confronted by citizens who oppose the construction. Protesters say county officials have refused to meet with them so Kamenetz shouting, “It’s my job to talk and your job to listen,” probably was absolutely […]

Maryland GOP Official Boasts About Anti-New Media Stance

Apr 21, 2013 - Maryland, Media, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

After interim chair Diana Waterman narrowly won the election to officially become the next Maryland GOP chair, it didn’t take long for her attack dog, John Wafer, to (somewhat ironically) take to social media to boast about defeating a “negative blogger campaign.” In the run up to the party convention, Wafer cast a lot of […]

MD GOP’s New Media Strategy: Deny Bloggers Media Credentials for Convention

Apr 18, 2013 - Maryland, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

The leadership of the Maryland Republican Party continues to make itself look ridiculous. Whether it’s conceding defeat to campaign in other states in 2012, having it’s previous chairman resign and flee the state to run for office in West Virginia, or chasing Governor O’Malley’s larval presidential campaign around the country, there isn’t much reason for […]

On Facebook today, Dan Bongino gave his endorsement to Greg Kline for Maryland GOP Chairman. We have an important decision to make. During next Saturday’s MDGOP Spring Convention, the Party will be selecting a new Chairman. I believe the best choice to turn this Party around and put us on a path to future electoral […]

Maryland: Cronyism for Some, Central Planning for All!

Apr 10, 2013 - Maryland, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

Maryland is a great state to do business as long as you’re in a business who has found favor with the Democrat Machine in Annapolis. Getting more Hollywood exposure certainly wouldn’t hurt Marty Owe’Malley’s presidential ambitions, therefore: Maryland triples film tax incentive to woo Hollywood production Maryland’s House of Delegates passed the bill increasing the […]

“Climate Change” Indoctrination as Professional Development

Apr 08, 2013 - Education, Maryland, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

Teachers in Maryland can now attend classes for professional development which will better enable them to indoctrinate your children with left wing environmental politics. I guess that’s not all that surprising in Maryland though since climate change/global warming orthodoxy is now a graduation requirement in the increasingly poorly nicknamed Free State. Did last summer’s heat, […]

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer Incites Union Thugs in Washington State

Apr 03, 2013 - Maryland, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

While the Maryland Democrat machine in Annapolis was conspiring to violate citizens’ second amendment rights in the name of “reducing violence,” one Maryland Democrat was trying to incite some. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) – the self-proclaimed “tax tax, spend spend” Democrat – was 3000 miles away from his state and district goading union […]

South Carolina GOP Seems More Prepared to refute O’Malley than Maryland GOP

Mar 25, 2013 - Maryland, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

When Martin O’Malley talks about his economic record, you can be pretty sure he’s lying, or at least cherry-picking only the numbers that support his case. O’Malley spoke in South Carolina this weekend in support of  and afterward an advisor to Governor Nikki Haley had O’Malley pegged. “Martin O’Malley is, predictably, juking the stats — unemployment […]

We need a new Maryland GOP

Mar 20, 2013 - Maryland, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

I admit to being somewhat of a GOP outsider. I’m not involved with any central committee in any significant way, nor have I ever been active in “Republican” circles. I am however an active conservative and a concerned Marylander. As a conservative, the GOP is my default political party because 1) the Democrats in this […]

Suddenly Senator Cardin Cares About the Constitution?

Mar 08, 2013 - Maryland, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

So this just happened: Senator Cardin issuing a “Follow Friday” recommendation and promoting “constitutional education in our schools.” If we had better constitutional education in our schools Senator Cardin would be out of a job.  

Maryland Democrats Seek Statewide Bag Tax and Here’s Why

Mar 08, 2013 - Environment & Energy, Maryland, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

Maryland Democrats want to make the “free” state the only state in the union with a statewide bag tax. The tax would cost shoppers 5 cents for every disposable shopping bag–both paper and plastic– they use when buying groceries or other merchandise. Montgomery County already has such a tax in place and as you might […]

Kool Aid My A** Those of you who know me are well aware of the fact that after every election, I swear off politics.  Once again, I am broke, arthritic, and feeling the residual effects of a campaign.  So why on earth would I be starting a political blog?  Well… I was looking for info on  […]
