Corruption

Does anyone else support bribery? It seems Maryland does. What is most disturbing to me is the trail of dirty money leading from 1st Mariner. From what I can tell, the bank is not public at all but rather a state run institution started by a long line of Democratic politicians. I don't know what's happening with maryland or the country for that matter, but are there any honest people running the show anymore? What can we do about it?

Like this is a surprise? I can just imagine the "campaign contribution" O'Mally is getting from folks like BGE, who he let bend us over and make us cry.

When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of the population is black, that is not racial profiling, it is the Law of Probability. Image Image

No shit. My comcast bill is getting nucking futs.

I am almost ready to *gasp* switch to shitty verizon dsl. $25/mo if you do not have verizon phone, which is still less than half of what comcast is pounding me for.

werd. Funny how that worked out considering how he would not shut up about BGE on the campaign trail and then ended up giving them exactly what they wanted.

Now he is ass pounding us some more with every new tax he can think up. Who voted for this tard??

After reading that clip, he is no different than any other MD politician, other than he got caught.

What would happen if they all got caught?

My biggest complaint about the government is TAXES. The first thing I would do is eliminate the INCOME tax, I think it's wrong to tax any kind of production or ownership. I support abolishing all taxes on principle, but I'm not sure it would be practical. Any sort of tax should be on CONSUMPTION or REDISTRIBUTION. More specifically, taxes on LUXURIES and IMPORTS would be okay with me.
