Please liberate us from our oppressive State government, cyber warriors!!!
Don O'Neill April 18, 2014 at 05:24 pm
It sounds as though Senator Catherine Pugh is pining for a job in the private sector. Here is whatRead More she said: 1. “Our government doesn’t move as quickly as the private sector ... and the private sector isn’t moving as quickly as it should be,” Sen. Catherine Pugh, D-Baltimore, said in an interview. 2. “I look at the government from the perspective of a business,” Pugh said. “... What do want the state to look like three years from now? I don’t think we do enough of that kind of thinking and planning.” Let me identify some of the issues that Senator Catherine Pugh and her colleagues in Annapolis should be thinking about on behalf of the citizens of Maryland. 1. Stop pretending that Maryland is the leader in state Health Care web sites. 2. Stop pretending that Maryland is the center of excellence for Cyber Security. 3. Stop pretending that the Chesapeake Bay is clean. 4. Stop pretending that Maryland's soft position on marijuana is supported by its citizens. 5. Stop contemplating the use of fracking. 6. Stop wasting time and money on Bond Bill earmarks. 7. Stop sweeping the Baltimore City prison scandal under the rug. 8. Stop pretending that Maryland is winning the jobs race with Virginia. 9. Stop pretending that Maryland has an adult candidate for Governor. 10. Stop pretending that Governor O'Malley is viable candidate for President.

Any word on where the baby's mom was ?

This is what happens when we don't teach teenagers in high school to grow up and be adults. TheyRead More turn into their 20's and have kids and treat their kids the way they treated other classmates in school. Time these people grow up. Starting at 16 you are not a baby and definatly at 24 you are not.

I don't think she'd fit in Old Sparky, a rope would probably break if they tried to hang her, theyRead More would have to use a year's supply of chemicals for lethal injection and a long long sword. I opt for the guillotine.

Two probate judges in Ct. are corrupt criminals and serve with impunity. The current Governor isRead More aware of it and avoiding it in his new bid for office.

NO -----SHE DESERVES WHAT SHE GOT..- She STABBED STABBED STABBED..she should have gotten the deathRead More penalty.....but michigan has only life in prison. Don't have sympathy for her just because she's a woman. She's a cold blooded killer and deserves what she got.
Life April 18, 2014 at 12:26 pm
I agree with MG42. POTUS is set for life. Former Presidents rake in millions long after they'veRead More served. How do you know the CEO's of private companies aren't giving much of their income away? But it sounds like Fran wants to take it away by force.
CeeCee April 18, 2014 at 03:43 pm
PEOPLE...there are 300,000 people in our neighboring state who still can't drink their water as theRead More result of a CEO "sitting on his ass" making arbitrary decisions or ignoring obligations to the community and regarding all of US as nothing more than collateral damage. And paying taxes? LOL, as if. There was a time in this country (1950s-60s) when small businesses didn't make their owners rich, but fulfilled and happy; and big businesses paid taxes and their CEOs made only 30 times more than the average salary of the company employees. CEOs can have a great idea 24/7/365 but very few are responsible for bringing it to fruition ALL BY THEMSELVES! Businesses were set up to be economic entities beholden to the communities they operate in and serve. Instead wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony--the seven deadly sins--which are also exhibited in some of the comments above and sure to follow--have turned our country as well as our planet into a trash heap making US scavengers, ruthless, destitute, vile and/or sad.
Life April 18, 2014 at 04:52 pm
Cee Cee, all big businesses started as SMALL businesses! Now if a CEO and his board agree toRead More compensate him/her multi millions, who are we to bash them? That's their right as a private company. If you don't like it, then boycott the company. That's your right. And let me ask you: When was the last time you paid half of your income in taxes? Do you know that for every dollar a business owner makes, he has to set aside half of it for Uncle Sam??? My guess is that you've never truly run your own business. If you did, it would change you.

We need volunteer firebugs like we need volunteer police auxiliary. They are losers who can not beRead More the professional first responders I want.
moecephus April 17, 2014 at 10:28 pm
Back in 61 there were volunteer fire fighters who set forest fires so they could find work fightingRead More them. Sad but it was also an indictment on the ecomony in Northern California at the time.

Just what "federal" law is it that this person is being extorted over? And shouldn't aRead More sign be posted warning that "drink refills" are a federal crime?
Thomas Silva April 18, 2014 at 08:24 pm
Why don't you just take "Local" out of the title??
Kerry Murphy April 18, 2014 at 09:18 pm
In all lklihood, the guy knew refills were not free, and he was intentionally stealing. That said,Read More INSANE punishment and I strongly agree that if there are no refills, then YOU FILL THE CUP. Let the man pay and be done with it... Quote from someone above: "This incident is arguably entrapment." NO. Do know what entrapment means? lol, entrapment!!!

LOL, Sharon, first I gotta go thru Plan A, before moving on to B. It would be great if most wouldRead More take my stand, but they won't because they are chickens**ts. Plan B is a good plan, but not everyone wants to go there. It's not illegal, neither of my plans are.
Bryan Harz April 18, 2014 at 07:20 pm
Just read they can tell what appliances are on by the type of load your residence is drawing.Read More Motors, heating elements are higher loads than consumer electronics. It seems like they can't tell the difference between the levels of loads, but not positive they can tell the difference between the individual levels of loads. Like if your TV and PC had the same or close power supply watt ratings, they wouldn't know which one you turn on. Just that something drawing a particular amount of current was turned on. That's what I can tell.
Bryan Harz April 18, 2014 at 07:26 pm
Looks like the RF output of the meters is 1 watt which is around the exposure of a microwave oven,Read More but not half as much as a baby monitor. I'm sure that would affect a pacemaker or something like that. I'm not familiar with what happens when there's RF introduced into the artificial assist device.

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.
kathleen macmurray April 17, 2014 at 08:46 am
A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.
Sheila April 17, 2014 at 08:16 pm
Poor horse. I hope someone equine rescue unit will relieve him from his present circumstances andRead More either give him a good home or find him one.

I would like to comment on this article but Patch has violated my 1st Amendment Right multiple timesRead More and does not allow me to comment, leaving me effectively dead.
Bob Bobbers April 17, 2014 at 01:59 pm
Patch cannot violate your 1st amendment rights. Only the government can do that.
Bryan Harz April 17, 2014 at 04:21 pm
Although I'm pro legalization, I'm not choosing a candidate on this one issue, that's for sure.Read More There are more important issues, and I think once whoever is elected finds out how much money CO is raking in, it will become legal no matter who you vote for.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!
