Please liberate us from our oppressive State government, cyber warriors!!!
Don O'Neill April 18, 2014 at 05:24 pm
It sounds as though Senator Catherine Pugh is pining for a job in the private sector. Here is whatRead More she said: 1. “Our government doesn’t move as quickly as the private sector ... and the private sector isn’t moving as quickly as it should be,” Sen. Catherine Pugh, D-Baltimore, said in an interview. 2. “I look at the government from the perspective of a business,” Pugh said. “... What do want the state to look like three years from now? I don’t think we do enough of that kind of thinking and planning.” Let me identify some of the issues that Senator Catherine Pugh and her colleagues in Annapolis should be thinking about on behalf of the citizens of Maryland. 1. Stop pretending that Maryland is the leader in state Health Care web sites. 2. Stop pretending that Maryland is the center of excellence for Cyber Security. 3. Stop pretending that the Chesapeake Bay is clean. 4. Stop pretending that Maryland's soft position on marijuana is supported by its citizens. 5. Stop contemplating the use of fracking. 6. Stop wasting time and money on Bond Bill earmarks. 7. Stop sweeping the Baltimore City prison scandal under the rug. 8. Stop pretending that Maryland is winning the jobs race with Virginia. 9. Stop pretending that Maryland has an adult candidate for Governor. 10. Stop pretending that Governor O'Malley is viable candidate for President.

Its not the games, its the people... I hear hot dogs are the number one food choked on, lets banRead More them and set limitations as it can not be smaller than your esophagus. Maybe we should hold the person responsible for his action and not limit others for his ignorance. People that think like that upset me. I am so sick of this self help, twelve step, leftover hippie generation bullshit! Its not the entertainment, the guns, or the games, its that person. Despite crime rates we have more good than evil people. That's like saying a book is bad because of the title without reading it. Like this comic book for kids called Dead Babies.

Grumpy Old Man April 18, 2014 at 05:29 pm
I don't think she'd fit in Old Sparky, a rope would probably break if they tried to hang her, theyRead More would have to use a year's supply of chemicals for lethal injection and a long long sword. I opt for the guillotine.
Life April 18, 2014 at 12:26 pm
I agree with MG42. POTUS is set for life. Former Presidents rake in millions long after they'veRead More served. How do you know the CEO's of private companies aren't giving much of their income away? But it sounds like Fran wants to take it away by force.
CeeCee April 18, 2014 at 03:43 pm
PEOPLE...there are 300,000 people in our neighboring state who still can't drink their water as theRead More result of a CEO "sitting on his ass" making arbitrary decisions or ignoring obligations to the community and regarding all of US as nothing more than collateral damage. And paying taxes? LOL, as if. There was a time in this country (1950s-60s) when small businesses didn't make their owners rich, but fulfilled and happy; and big businesses paid taxes and their CEOs made only 30 times more than the average salary of the company employees. CEOs can have a great idea 24/7/365 but very few are responsible for bringing it to fruition ALL BY THEMSELVES! Businesses were set up to be economic entities beholden to the communities they operate in and serve. Instead wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony--the seven deadly sins--which are also exhibited in some of the comments above and sure to follow--have turned our country as well as our planet into a trash heap making US scavengers, ruthless, destitute, vile and/or sad.
Life April 18, 2014 at 04:52 pm
Cee Cee, all big businesses started as SMALL businesses! Now if a CEO and his board agree toRead More compensate him/her multi millions, who are we to bash them? That's their right as a private company. If you don't like it, then boycott the company. That's your right. And let me ask you: When was the last time you paid half of your income in taxes? Do you know that for every dollar a business owner makes, he has to set aside half of it for Uncle Sam??? My guess is that you've never truly run your own business. If you did, it would change you.

tom g >> having cafeteria personell actually do work at any federal site is a bigRead More misunderstanding, didn't you know/read about that? lowering payroll cost's by handing the job/effort off to the customer has been going on since 'self serve/checkout' started. but notice, they can afford a GS 10 security guy to wander around most of the time just watching and waiting for these heinous transgressors.
joebanana April 18, 2014 at 03:03 pm
Just what "federal" law is it that this person is being extorted over? And shouldn't aRead More sign be posted warning that "drink refills" are a federal crime?

As far as smart meters are concerned the only people they benefit are the utilities. It is justRead More another piece of the big brother is watching you. The things they can find out about your private life can be sold to the appropriate interested party. So the know when you're watching TV, on the computer and much, much more. Also, if you have some type of artificial assist like a pace maker don't even get close to the device.
Pam Hamburg April 18, 2014 at 07:05 pm
LOL, Sharon, first I gotta go thru Plan A, before moving on to B. It would be great if most wouldRead More take my stand, but they won't because they are chickens**ts. Plan B is a good plan, but not everyone wants to go there. It's not illegal, neither of my plans are.

A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.

I would like to comment on this article but Patch has violated my 1st Amendment Right multiple timesRead More and does not allow me to comment, leaving me effectively dead.
Bob Bobbers April 17, 2014 at 01:59 pm
Patch cannot violate your 1st amendment rights. Only the government can do that.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Art: Perhaps we should stick to "killers" and not try to put a "rose" on it byRead More cleaning the waters with references to breaking curfew or robbing a store. Let us just stick with the muddy waters of "murder." I would suggest that mixing subject might be a bit confusing.
art doyle April 18, 2014 at 08:51 am
I respectfully disagree. The justice system is not an emotional one. There is no difference betweenRead More murder and speeding. If you do a crime, there is a penalty. That is the discussion underway, what is an appropriate penalty, not what constitutes a 'rosey' transgression.
Lorna D. Rudnikas April 18, 2014 at 12:06 pm
Does the penalty "fit" the crime...perhaps an important part of the discussion. From myRead More perspective, the "discussion" seemed to drift a little. Don't expect the justice system to be emotional, just on the money with regard to justice!
