Maryland is chasing out millionaires
In an article from the Wall Street Journal, it says that Governor Martin O’Malley’s extravagant spending spree last year is having repercussions. Because of the governor’s spending habits, the tax rate has skyrocketed. One of O’Malley’s unintended side effects has been to chase the millionaires that he targeted out of the state. Millionaires, although getting a bad rap in a good economy have one thing going for them, they save more then they spend, that is why they are millionaires. One third of Maryland’s millionaires have left the state, leaving two thirds to support the load. This is a trend that is unsustainable, and O’Malley’s opinion of “they are more than willing to pay their fair share.” The question remains……what is a fair share? Obviously the millionaires who are left see it differently than O’Malley.

Sonia Sotomayor the judge of empathy
Obama has confirmed our ugliest fears. He wants a Latina female, with a passion for ruling from the bench. One only has to view her past opinions on You Tube to see that she tauntingly has referred to ruling from the bench as something that no judge admits to, but that is done regularly. Her statement the very day she was named went like this. “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life." This not only shows her intent to interpret the constitution, but also has tinges of bigotry. She is also shown to belong to a group called the National Council of La Raza, a group that's promoted driver's licenses for illegal aliens, amnesty programs, and no immigration law enforcement by local and state police. If you are a second amendment advocate, this is one judge who thinks it is a states right to ban any or all firearms. And the republican senators say they can’t stop this appointment?.......or they won’t?

Preferential treatment by the President
President Barack Obama has forced the bankruptcy of Chrysler at the end of this week, allowing the termination of one quarter of the dealership contracts. It seems that contracts mean nothing to our President who once claimed, “I taught constitutional law.”Let me correct myself, contracts that favor his voter base are exempt. In a strange coincidence of the 789 Chrysler dealership closings 10% of the owners donated to the Democratic Party, but 90% donated to the Republican Party, it’s nice to see how the closings are picked. The UAW contracts under no circumstance will be violated, nor will they be violated with Ford or GM…..Congratulations on tearing up yet more legal contracts Mr. President……one giant down, two more to go!

ACORN gets more money
According to Judicial Watch, by way of the freedom of information act, has acquired documents that give an “executive level” position in the counting of the 2010 Census. It enables them to do virtually every phase of the count, including the training of additional groups or individuals involved in the count. Even though ACORN has now been indicted for voter registration fraud in multiple states, and used that position to further the possibility of Barack Obama being voted in as president. The Census Bureau stated a mandate to ban certain groups from the count, and they are as follows; "hate groups" were not eligible, nor were "law enforcement, anti-immigrant groups, (or) any groups that might make people fearful of participating in the census." It seems every part of ACORN’s involvement in government is in some way tainted, and yet rather than to launch a congressional investigation, they are rewarded with yet another government contract…..disgusting!
