O' Malley could easily NOT sign the abortion laws passed by the GA. So, yes, O'Malley does haveRead More something to do with abortion laws if he's the one signing off on them at the end of the day. He could (if he was really interested in protecting the innocent) follow the trend of other states and Europe and at least ban abortions of convenience at the 20 week mark and beyond. Some European nations even ban them at 14 weeks. Only three other countries allow non-medically necessitated abortions in the third tri-mester: Canada, China and North Korea. So our dear leader stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the dear leader of North Korea when it comes to abortion. Also, wasn't slavery considered to be a "decided" issue with the Dredd Scott decision? Right up until the Civil War that is. When a practice dehumanizes innocent life to excuse its fundamental inhumanity, just as legalized slavery once did and abortions of convenience still do, the issue is never settled.

Wow, Mr. Sharp found this article rather quickly. You did neglect to note that you are the authorRead More of the blogs you cited.****For those who are unaware, Mr Sharp is an avid pro-death penalty advocate who owns/operates several pro-death penalty blogs and websites. Not that there is anything wrong with that. He certainly is strident in supporting his positions. Interestingly, I believe he was anti-death penalty until the mid 1990s.

Can ANYONE tell me what if any part of the Judicial System Works ??? It is all screwed up from frontRead More to back. Prime example is the R.S.O.L. If this List is so effective in stopping crime . Why not create one for all types of violent crimes and watch ALL crime go down. I have a co-worker who has been on this list for 9 years for being with a younger girl , who by the way is now his wife and they have a child together. And the list he says has only created a problem for him trying to get his and his family's life back together and has caused issues with A'o's making comments to him and his wife and child which to me is harassment. I have even wrote to some local and state politicians about expanding to more lists as in spousal abuse and repeat drug dealers and drunk drivers and been told on many emails that they do not see them effective to create new ones. Makes you wonder who they are protecting ??????

Using coupons really does help. It's amazing that through coupons people can actually get a $800Read More bill down to $7 ! I reguarly use coupons, sales, etc to brng the cost down & I do but never like that.

The government fails to focus on causes; rather, they focus on effects. That's why problems neverRead More gets fixed.

The research is robust with ways to address the broader aspects of the distracted driving issue.Read More But, no one bothers to look for the information and understand the problems and their causes. I provided a single site and there are many. I doubt anyone took the time to read the Erie Insurance Report. Around that same reference that are more studies and suggested ways to address the problem. The point is this: the government only grabs what it can to say that it did something and to assert that it made a difference. They did this years ago with the 55 mph national speed limit and now that the speeds limits have been increased, the total highway fatalities - in absolute numbers and not just per million miles driven, have decreased. There are lots of other factors that influence highway fatalities and speed is only but one. However, the government said that it was "the" one causal factor. They were wrong. They have done the same thing with speed cameras and red light cameras too. There are many proven traffic engineering technics that have a much better performance than cameras. But, we don't do those. The true solution is actually in our driver education programs as at present there is none. What we have now is to teach folks to pass a test - not how to drive. We don't teach car control techniques or handling characteristics and the latter are very different depending on the car - BMW did a study and found that 80% of respondents did not know whether they we driving a front or rear wheel drive vehicle - as the handling characteristics (and what you need to do to avoid and accident) are very different. The problem is very complex and the solutions need to recognize that complexity. The presently divined solutions fail to consider this complexity.

If his administration get a lot of support ( votes ) from Baltimore city and there are a lot ofRead More criminals charged with murder in Jail, makes sense that the families who are connected to the killers would want to keep their relatives alive. Votes count right ? Baltimore is one of the most violent cities in America. Keeping the deterrent on the books helps to protect the good citizens of Baltimore city. Taking it off the books protects who ? I think the Mayor of Baltimore, along with their support staff wants to change which had been going on for some time. It will take time and dedication. The governor points out that there are problems in Baltimore but neglects to say nothing changed when he was the cities mayor.
