    Maryland District 7

    After the 2000 census, the district was drastically extended by the Democrat dominated legislature. With the population of Baltimore City drastically declining, the 7th district was extended.

    Pharisaism and Nanny-State Liberalism

    The state of Maryland is sending out signs with a large pumpkin and the words “NO CANDY AT THIS RESIDENCE” to sex offenders and requiring them to post it on their door during Halloween trick-or-treat activities. Additionally, the sex offenders must stay at home, keep their outdoor lights off, and not answer the door. Violations of this directive could be viewed as a violation of | Read More »

From Hoyer’s Office comes this: House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) issued the following statement today after 51 state governors released a letter calling for the extension of renewable energy | Read More »

    Maryland Update

    McCain’s Baltimore fundraiser was picketed by Laborer’s International Union, a front for organized crime. Of course being shouted at by members of an organized crime front group is not really a bad thing. I’d think being supported by them should be an item of concern.
