1000,s of businesses have left the state. When they liberals are done, Maryland will consist ofRead More those who work for the government and those who sponge off the government and not much else.

I've done a bit of research on business friendly states and Maryland ranks anywhere from the middleRead More to near the bottom. Some states near the top have high unemployment (Nevada) while some near the bottom have low unemployment (Maryland and Vermont). Beretta says they're moving because of Maryland's safe gun regulations. They're an Italian company and Italy has some tough gun regulations as well, so let them move. Meanwhile Marylanders enjoy lower unemployment, better wages, and higher quality of life than Tenn., or the rest of the South, for that matter. In fact, on business and investment magazine Forbes Maryland ranks #6 amongst the best states to live. LIVE! We're doing things better here than many other states. I had to wade through a lot of red states at the bottom until I passed Virginia at #15 and finally got to Maryland, near the top. So, go on Beretta.

I think people are jumping to conclusions here. He apparently parked in a parking garage. Granted,Read More five hours is too long and he should just be considered a bad son, but he really didn't do anything illegal. Sure she was incoherent when the police first questioned her. She's 98 years old and was asleep when they started questioning her. How many of us make a lot of sense when we first wake up? My 83-year-old is just now complaining about being cold and I have the airconditioning turned up to 78. Older people can deal with heat a little better, apparently. I bet the mother was doing just fine until the "good" citizen decided she wasn't. But it's good that they called her son.

Governor Martin O'Malley is meeting with faith-based groups to come up with solutions for sheltering immigrant children.
ABell July 22, 2014 at 01:43 pm
So sick of politicians using anything and everything to get them noticed. We should not even beRead More talking about this and would not be if our borders were as protected as the American people are made to believe. Our country is in great need, perhaps that 1% haven't noticed but children in this country go to bed every night hungry and homeless. I am sorry that these immigrant children are suffering in their country but until we take care of our own, I fail to see the rationale in taking on someone else's problems. We are fast becoming a country full of opportunists and let's not even get into how DUMB we are. Very sad....

Not defending the cop, but why did Harvey stop his vehicle and get out and approach, no contact wasRead More made with vehicles, he should of just kept going. You, me and every person has cut someone off at some point in our driving years, whether it was by accident or purpose, you and everyone has done it. I know that intersection, it's a weird left turn and sometimes you can accidentally cut someone off which enrages the other person, Harvey should of ignored it moved on. Approaching a vehicle after something like that happens means you are looking for trouble, the cop should of kept going also. 2 egos who wanted fight after a Stupid game of Cat and Mouse and ends with one Dying. Ridiculous

The Lawyers are the ones that will get 40% of that settlement. The Hospitals premiums will go up andRead More that cost will be absorbed by everyone who has insurance.. There was no harm to anyone, and I understand no ones face was seen in any of the pictures. So if you are in the middle class and see your health insurance premiums go up once again thank the trial lawyers. Funny how they can get away with it in a country where the laws are written by lawyers.... Kind of like "Hershey's" writing the dietary requirements, really doesn't make sense. .

Roger, you need to up your meds, pal. ILLEGAL aliens are by definition in this country ILLEGALLY,Read More and are therefore criminals from the start. What other criminals do we supply with subsidized housing, healthcare, and etc.? All these services can be provided within the prison system, without the need to spend $6000.00 a month to care for people who under all state and federal laws, if enforced, should be shipped back to their homelands. We've seen some of these "Children", with the gang tats and the gang attitude, only here to start up another gang cell so they can have a base for future criminal activities. Look at the crime stats following these "children" wherever they get placed, then go thank the Dems that run the state for bringing 3rd world folks in here to take over what used to be good neighborhoods. House them at the State House or the Governor's mansion, if those people are so hot to have them here.
R.S July 22, 2014 at 11:24 am
Any and all illegals should be sent back. And these children aren't 2yo..they are almost adults hereRead More but are considered adults back home. Their lifestyle was war and gangs; you cant stick them somewhere and disappear. Omalley is gov. of MD and has driven us into the poor house w all his new and increased taxes and fee's; as well as lead to get illegals driving licenses, free college ed., health care, etc.. He did to get the spanish / cuban/ mexican votes to be gov..and now he wants to be president. If he gets in, we will all fall. This whole issue pisses me off! I lost my nursing lic. C my better half owed a little tax money to the state yet my taxes were pd. I couldnt afford healthcare after losing my career to the stupid punish the whole family greedy state law. When my grandson parents died when he was age 4yo, I looked for help to get counseling for grief and traumatic stress and not one so called non profit organization would help or even offer a discounted rate...and the so call child psychiatrists and therapist either lied and said they dont accept his age, they are retiring, or didnt return my call when I mentioned no insurance coverage.So it tics me off to see illegals receiving what I state and feds wont give to even our smallest Americans. This country will go down if the pattern of tax the citizens to house, feed, insure, educate, etc the illegals who Dont pay tax...and those that work are under the table and taking jobs away from the home remodeling/ contracting industry.

Granny Gruntz, I missed your comment, before; but the Bible says Cain and Seth went off to the LandRead More of Nod to find wives. It doesn't say anything about where Nod was, or who created or populated it (presumably God, maybe on an off day), or it's story, or who the boys married, or other little details. I guess because the girls would have been shiksa. Not really important in Hebrew history; the telling of which is actually the whole purpose of the Old Testament.
