Congressman Kratovil FAIL
Frank Kratovil (D-MD) is a freshman member of congress representing Maryland’s First Congressional District. He’s also extremely vulnerable. You’d think he wouldn’t do stuff like this.

Maryland millionaires’ massive migration.

Politicians in Annapolis created a millionaire tax bracket, raising the top marginal income-tax rate to 6.25%. And because cities such as Baltimore | Read More »

In fact, Maryland gave more soldiers to northern armies than it did southern (About 32,981 fought for the north and only 4,039 fought for the south). But this does not mean that Maryland was | Read More »
