What's Your New Year's Resolution?

Gov. Martin O'Malley is focusing on job creation. How about you?

Losing weight? Quitting smoking? Spurring job creation? 

If you're the governor, your New Year's resolution might lean toward the latter (see video), but in most cases some sort of self-betterment might be sufficient. 

So let's have it! What are your plans for 2012? Sound off in the comments section, or post a video reply using the link contribution link above.

"PS I could take 1ke in 15 seconds in a Giant parking lot. lol" oh wow, now she's up to physical threats. Ratcheting it up to new levels of maturity here!
Kim Collington January 06, 2012 at 03:04 PM
Christie: "Looks like I got under someone's skin :). I knew this was going to be good; should have gotten my popcorn out" That sounds a little narcissistic and self promoting, Actually I barely gave your rant a second thought as you defeated your own argument quite nicely, Tim: " oh wow, now she's up to physical threats. Ratcheting it up to new levels of maturity here!: lmbo. Tim as soon as I get this server I am working on running, I must make note to install a version of Humor 1.0 into you. Oh and where did I put that beta version of Common Sense?
Christie Pulvino January 06, 2012 at 03:21 PM
In my experience, people who say they do not give "your rant" a second thought, do not post a reply in less than 30 minutes so sorry, try again :) This really is fun for me, so I guess you were spot on with your assessment of me that I am narcissistic and self promoting.

Poor sp0t. Look up the definition of fascism. ie... tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control Precisely what the usurper of our Constitution, the Squanderer-in-Chief, is doing. I've never posted on the Bel Air patch. lmbo What a paranoid, delusional, crackpot you are. Please direct me to posts I have supposedly made there. Is that the best you can do attack my profile photo. As I said it's been explained ad nauseam You do know what that means?
Kim Collington January 06, 2012 at 03:33 PM
no hon I just have a few minutes to kill while the server I am setting up goes through it's paces. Gee and didn't you post a reply to my response to your opening post in what......... 15 minutes? hmmm? Glad to see that my responses hit the mark and spark somewhat of thought even though sadly, it is misguided and hypocritical.
Christie Pulvino January 06, 2012 at 03:44 PM
I respond so quickly because I do care, and I have no problem admitting that. I care about the Perry Hall community and I like living here and without trying to over dramatize the situation, when people trash where I live, I get protective and try to fight off the enemy. So sorry, the score is still Pulvino 4, Collington 0. :). I also get a kick out of getting under your skin, so my rebuttals serve two purposes.
Kim Collington January 06, 2012 at 03:54 PM
WOW 14 minutes. A new record. Gee I bet the Pittsburg Squeeler's thought they were beating the Ravens twice this season too. Under my skin? Don't flatter yourself. I think you should stop your thread hijacks and get back to the original topic: New Years Resolutions Mine however is more of a wish than a resolution. I wish for a military coup and that all left wing loonies follow this path: http://i39.tinypic.com/rwi7b8.jpg
sp0t January 06, 2012 at 04:02 PM
This is a cross-post, so it is appearing on the Bel Air patch, therefore you are posting, and have posts on the Bel Air patch. Taking my sentence in context however you will note that I never said you were from the Bel Air patch, only that I was suspicious of others that post there. Second, please read the entire definition of Fascism and note the numerous flaws in your argument (social conservatism, militaristic, anti-liberal, opposition to cultural and national diversity.. the list goes on), never mind the inaccuracies in calling Obama autocratic and dictatorial. Finally, being suspicious about the validity of your profile is hardly an attack, but then again your responses on this post have been fairly extreme, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised at your overreaction.
Christie Pulvino January 06, 2012 at 04:04 PM
It is so easy to lie about not caring that I am getting under your skin in text, but your fast responses actually show you do care AND that I have gotten under your skin. Like I said earlier, I do care, and have no problem admitting it. I know you will respond to this and promptly, because as history has shown us here on the Patch, you can't stand not getting the last insult in. And you know what?? I am going to let you get the last word in because, you know, I'm such a giver :) Peace out!!!
Kim Collington January 06, 2012 at 04:10 PM
My god I hope when I turn 35 I am not such the drama queen. Yes, I bet you are a giver.
Kim Collington January 06, 2012 at 04:15 PM
OMG I cross posted. Call a cop and issue me a ticket. Suspicions without direct knowledge or proof of some vast conspiracy existing in your mind is called paranoia. Obviously you become instantly paranoid of those who don't think as you do. Sorry hon I cannot dumb myself down and think as you do or become simply a cog in the wheel, Quit hijacking the thread and stay on topic.. BTW, I give you......... http://img694.imageshack.us/img694/2241/93981452.jpg
sp0t January 06, 2012 at 04:27 PM
For clarification's sake, you didn't cross-post, Nick DiMarco did, and I don't see anyone here taking issue with that other than yourself. Secondly being suspicious of trolls on a local news comment board, and being paranoid aren't exactly the same thing, but then again you are labeling a President who is Centrist at best, a Fascist, so one can only expect so much. Lastly, you telling me I'm hijacking the thread is probably the funniest thing you've posted so far.. at this point I almost feel like I'm trolling you.
Kim Collington January 06, 2012 at 04:36 PM
spOt you are a troll. Get back to work and stop ripping off your employer. Obama a centerist? LMBO! Oh man you should hear what many of the soldiers at APG call him in private and what I personally have heard a general at the pentagon say about him. Dude, you have got to be on some bad weed. Now back to topic - Still hoping for a 2012 military coup de tat. he-he
sp0t January 06, 2012 at 05:09 PM
I'm sure my employer appreciates your concern, but they are aware of my internet use and have no problem with it. That's the Design world for you.. I would like to suggest you do some research into the actual legislation that the president has signed (sorry, Fox News doesn't count). In doing so you will find it hard to argue that his actions make him anything more liberal than a Centrist, and the opinions of soldiers, generals, doctors, or plumbers doesn't change this reality. In order to return to topic I will applaud the boldness of your wish for 2012, although I fear you're probably going to be just as unhappy with the next four years. .. now where is that tinfoil hat of mine.
John Doe January 06, 2012 at 05:31 PM
Kim Collington needs a a laxative.
frond January 06, 2012 at 06:18 PM
Kim, you are my hero. ASL?
Tim January 06, 2012 at 06:33 PM
...but you're a drama queen now ...I don't get it :(
sp0t January 06, 2012 at 07:44 PM
I must have done something right for it appears that Kim blocked me. With that being said, I resolve to keep making new friends in 2012! .. well that and to buy more tinfoil.
Bart January 06, 2012 at 08:02 PM
I think he's gone. Totally gone. I wonder what his resurrected name might be?
Kim Collington January 06, 2012 at 08:04 PM
you need a drink. lol
Kim Collington January 06, 2012 at 08:05 PM
no sp0t you aren't that important to me but I did do something cool while I was at lunch. I installed software in an M-1 tank. lol
Kim Collington January 06, 2012 at 08:09 PM
I'm everyone's hero!

Thanks, Nick.

Frankly, can't find anything this person who seems to have offended so many said, that is much different that so many others who responded. When I was in high school many years ago I remember a survey passed around as to "who hates Robin Bean"...Ms. Bean being someone others were very jealous of I guess - and so gratuitously juvenile. Let's all hate him..let's all gang up, including sadly supposed journalists over an attitude we disapprove of. I might remind our "website cops" that the responses to this person were just as offensive as the comments by the offender, but I get it you're all wrapped up in your Robin Bean...
Tim January 07, 2012 at 05:30 AM
