Who are any of these bums this election... Brown? ...why the hell would Kenneth Ulman be his runningRead More mate...given that he is alot more versed with MD government than Brown? And how about that chick that looks like Racheal Maddow? Btw...Who the hell is Brown and what has he accomplished...I just know he's O'Malley's boy...There are some county executives, I think would be ok...maybe Kevin Kamenetz (I really like his attitude...sounds like he can get things done) or David Craig. I think that the comptroller would also make a good governor but he won't run.

I think its good for a pre K. To promote eductaion and social intergration early is important. IRead More dont belive support sould come from more taxtion. If you spawn the child you pay for the childs education an welfare. Time and time again we all see more taxes through many forms and the democrats still cant balance the budget. No more higher or special taxes for education, this idealism in Md has to end. Its not right to ask others, for one who dont have children, to pay for yours. In this state we have many welfare programs, special taxtion and safety nets to help people.We dont need more potheads or gambling addicts to pay for our educational funding.What we need is ACCOUNTABILITY! Especially from the elected and citizens who can pay thier own way.

Charles Lollar speaks the most sense. If you've never heard him, maybe you should. Instead ofRead More going with all the big names (what good have they done you lately, if ever), check out the lesser known man. Lollar for Governor.

I have my own plan. I'm moving to PA.
Pam Hamburg April 21, 2014 at 01:33 pm
I wish I could, Robert. I cannot due to personal reasons. I'm stuck here. There's no way aroundRead More it. Before you move, tho, make sure you check PA out thoroughly. Seems they are nickled and dimed to death, just like we are.

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.

Although I'm pro legalization, I'm not choosing a candidate on this one issue, that's for sure.Read More There are more important issues, and I think once whoever is elected finds out how much money CO is raking in, it will become legal no matter who you vote for.

Chuck, big business is smart enough to know that if they are the only game in town you will beRead More forced to buy their products and services. The more regulation the harder it is to get into the game. If you and Bob think big business is the ones calling for less regulation then you need to take a look at the big picture. Big bank is in bed with big business and big government. They want to control the money, the markets and your life. They can even stop you from pulling a rabbit out of a hat!!
Chuck Burton April 16, 2014 at 04:49 pm
Steven, ALL politicians love regulation. It gives them more of the power they yearn for - thoughRead More they seldom have any idea how best to use it once they get it. ALL business and labor is as full of politicians as the government. They all want power over those they regard as mere subjects to be used for their own profit. Tell me in your heart you don't think of your customers in much that way - even if you want to do a good job and please them. That is the way to profit, after all; and we are ALL politicians to some degree and want to be in that .1% I mentioned earlier. I'm sure you love any regulation that supports your ambitions as much as you hate those that make things more difficult for you.
steven bradley April 16, 2014 at 06:13 pm
Chuck, that is a very cynical view. You think I look at my customers as subjects? I tend to look atRead More them as people and try to deliver more than expected of me. I happen to like my customers and try not to work for those that I don’t like. I have no intention of living my life looking at people as my enemy. I share your view that most politicians seek control. There are few leaders, mostly appeasers buying control. Not all of everything ever applies. I’m more libertarian. Don’t drop a bomb on me or piss on me and tell me it’s raining. Otherwise you do your thing and I’ll do mine. We can help each other when our paths cross. If we do it makes both of our loads easier.

Political LIES! They have been waving that "promise" for YEARS...NONE have ever followedRead More through...However, each one has RAISED and ADDED taxes...

CUTS to education...sure, so all the teachers in the state can go without pay raises like we did inRead More Harford County for 4 out of the past 5 years!

Under the O'Malley administration, did you know that Maryland state spending has INCREASED each yearRead More about $1 Billion. 8 years ago, state spending was about $26 Billion. Today, it is about $34 Billion. Are you making 30% more today than 8 years ago?

Mr. Hogan you have my vote. All one has to do is listen to WBAL Radio and C-4's interview with Mr.Read More Hogan on the topic of "Pay for Play." As for me the remaining choices are the standard bearers of total failure after years of being in power.

id vote for you if you lower taxes in this state and county . I'm tired of giving too much of myRead More money to other people via taxes and fees. go back to 5% on the state tax... lower the bay bridge toll down to $3 or so... reduce gas taxes, get rid of mandatory emissions testing (tax or fee as dems often call taxes) for our cars that were forced on drivers years ago. ditch the rain tax. make it easier for people to start small businesses and hire people. I'm tired of the years and years of democrats taxing anything and everything that moves. And lower the price for that little sticker on my tags the MVA charges me every 2 years... $154 for that sticker is way too much to pay.
