Voting Integrity

Looks like the majority believe in using proper identification so that American Citizens are the only ones allowed to vote for – American politicians.

Sounds proper to me.

Too Rich

According to Russ Feingold, former U.S. Senator (D-WI) of McCain-Feingold campaign reform infamy (let’s not forget that one, right?), has pointed out three politicians for “shame” due to being beholden to corporate interests.

I’ll let you find out who in the article from The Hill. But one of them is from Maryland, another from Connecticut and the other in the “Show Me” state of Missouri.

Imagine my surprise.

MD Special Session? Gas Tax Hike? Again?

According to O’Malley. And Drudge Report picked up the story, too.

Will history repeat? Is this O’Malley’s last hurrah before he leaves the Governorship?

I’m not a betting man, but someone else may be.

Use of Our Tax Money

In order to sell us on Obamacare. Up to $200M of our hard earned money.

How does that make you feel now? I need a drink. Oops, Maryland legislature just increased taxes on alcoholic drinks by 50%. Guess that’s not going to work.

America’s Energy Future

Depends on to whom you speak, or listen to.

Like – our own U.S. President Barack Obama at a town hall about clean energy while visiting Gamesa Technology Corporation in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania, today – April 6, 2011.

Oh – there’s more – at GatewayPundit. Jim Hoft points out that the POTUS was extolling this future energy source by the company (Spanish owned) that received a bailout.

Oh, also, don’t miss that last link (here it is also) that points out a report that windmills aren’t really that helpful. Useless, I think they said. But if you really want something to watch, try this – where a windmill destroys itself and adjacent property.

Not to mention the fact that when such machinery is installed in (much too) northern latitudes – ice formation can be extremely deadly, or just keep them from spinning. In any case, expensive windmills won’t offer much in the wrong place, if at all.

Hear that, Maryland Governor O’Malley? General Assembly?

Union Labelled by Maryland and California

Seems Governors in these states also ask/tell unions they have to pony up to help reduce the state deficits.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country in an equally blue state, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley faced 15,000 union workers massed a the state capitol in protest of O’Malley’s own budget proposals, which will make only a modest dent in the $19 billion in unfunded pension liabilities and $16 billion in retiree health care. O’Malley plaintive defense at the rally was notable as much for its chutzpah as for its liberal parochialism: “You will not find in Maryland the sort of Midwestern oppression that you find in Ohio and Wisconsin!”, he declared.

Imagine that.

Extremist

Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) somettimes knows how to use a phone.

Just not a teleconference call.

Never trust this man. (Hear that, Ben Cardin?)
