This ruling could mess with BHO's goal of expanding the class of people dependent on the GovernmentRead More for survival. The plan seems to have been to put into effect a law that would greatly raise rates. Which has been accomplished. Then provide government entitlements meant to offset the increased insurance rates. Hmm. Now what's going to happen.

I hope that this is it for our Raven's and getting into trouble with the law. Kenny Pahr has aRead More point, we don't know all the facts surrounding the night Ray and his wife (Fiance at the tiem) got into the fight. Hopefully he and his wife are in counseling to make sure none of this happens again. It's stuff like this that makes for a great conversation starter with our children about domestic violence( regardless if it were the man or the woman doing the abusing), drug abuse, interfering with law enforcement, etc. so they won't get into trouble and will understand how to treat other people in this world. Kudos to the NFL for suspension without pay and Ray Rice for publicly accepting responsibility and the punishment for his actions.

Bryan- critical thinking should not be defined as displaying an ability to perform as expected. ItRead More should be analytical and improvisational. That, however, leads to students challenging their instructors and is time consuming. It also demands instructors with hubris. Thinking is also critical in areas other than math. I cede the point that I am not currently involved in the process yet have extensive experience dealing with the product of the system. I see no current evidence that there is any ability to problem solve in the education system. There is an ability to follow procedure as taught, not critique or improvise. Our foreign educated employees have much better skills in those areas.

Mike, just think about it What PRIVATE business do we have in Maryland? Under Armour, a fineRead More company. Do they make all their clothing in the US? McCormick - they package and combine spices and flavorings, often imported, and are thinking of moving elsewhere. Johns Hopkins, which researches many things for the government. A handful of bio/chemical companies - that often are bought out by companies domiciled elsewhere when they reach a certain size. Several companies that shuffle money around. Headquarters of several large defense contractors - mostly in Montgomery County, close to the federal money teat. Other than that, what? No large companies that MAKE things. Baltimore ranks as the country's largest branch office town. The state is a nice place to live, but not very exciting - except for the chance of dying violently. I'm a native, by the way.

I think people are jumping to conclusions here. He apparently parked in a parking garage. Granted,Read More five hours is too long and he should just be considered a bad son, but he really didn't do anything illegal. Sure she was incoherent when the police first questioned her. She's 98 years old and was asleep when they started questioning her. How many of us make a lot of sense when we first wake up? My 83-year-old is just now complaining about being cold and I have the airconditioning turned up to 78. Older people can deal with heat a little better, apparently. I bet the mother was doing just fine until the "good" citizen decided she wasn't. But it's good that they called her son.

If I recall correctly "organic" means they were fertilized with "natural"Read More compounds. Beside being cheaper, I think I prefer my consumables to be fertilized with nitrates, etc. that are made by artificial means. They are guaranteed to be pure without any chance of contaminants.

Governor Martin O'Malley is meeting with faith-based groups to come up with solutions for sheltering immigrant children.

So sick of politicians using anything and everything to get them noticed. We should not even beRead More talking about this and would not be if our borders were as protected as the American people are made to believe. Our country is in great need, perhaps that 1% haven't noticed but children in this country go to bed every night hungry and homeless. I am sorry that these immigrant children are suffering in their country but until we take care of our own, I fail to see the rationale in taking on someone else's problems. We are fast becoming a country full of opportunists and let's not even get into how DUMB we are. Very sad....

Not defending the cop, but why did Harvey stop his vehicle and get out and approach, no contact wasRead More made with vehicles, he should of just kept going. You, me and every person has cut someone off at some point in our driving years, whether it was by accident or purpose, you and everyone has done it. I know that intersection, it's a weird left turn and sometimes you can accidentally cut someone off which enrages the other person, Harvey should of ignored it moved on. Approaching a vehicle after something like that happens means you are looking for trouble, the cop should of kept going also. 2 egos who wanted fight after a Stupid game of Cat and Mouse and ends with one Dying. Ridiculous

The Lawyers are the ones that will get 40% of that settlement. The Hospitals premiums will go up andRead More that cost will be absorbed by everyone who has insurance.. There was no harm to anyone, and I understand no ones face was seen in any of the pictures. So if you are in the middle class and see your health insurance premiums go up once again thank the trial lawyers. Funny how they can get away with it in a country where the laws are written by lawyers.... Kind of like "Hershey's" writing the dietary requirements, really doesn't make sense. .

Roger, you need to up your meds, pal. ILLEGAL aliens are by definition in this country ILLEGALLY,Read More and are therefore criminals from the start. What other criminals do we supply with subsidized housing, healthcare, and etc.? All these services can be provided within the prison system, without the need to spend $6000.00 a month to care for people who under all state and federal laws, if enforced, should be shipped back to their homelands. We've seen some of these "Children", with the gang tats and the gang attitude, only here to start up another gang cell so they can have a base for future criminal activities. Look at the crime stats following these "children" wherever they get placed, then go thank the Dems that run the state for bringing 3rd world folks in here to take over what used to be good neighborhoods. House them at the State House or the Governor's mansion, if those people are so hot to have them here.
R.S July 22, 2014 at 11:24 am
Any and all illegals should be sent back. And these children aren't 2yo..they are almost adults hereRead More but are considered adults back home. Their lifestyle was war and gangs; you cant stick them somewhere and disappear. Omalley is gov. of MD and has driven us into the poor house w all his new and increased taxes and fee's; as well as lead to get illegals driving licenses, free college ed., health care, etc.. He did to get the spanish / cuban/ mexican votes to be gov..and now he wants to be president. If he gets in, we will all fall. This whole issue pisses me off! I lost my nursing lic. C my better half owed a little tax money to the state yet my taxes were pd. I couldnt afford healthcare after losing my career to the stupid punish the whole family greedy state law. When my grandson parents died when he was age 4yo, I looked for help to get counseling for grief and traumatic stress and not one so called non profit organization would help or even offer a discounted rate...and the so call child psychiatrists and therapist either lied and said they dont accept his age, they are retiring, or didnt return my call when I mentioned no insurance coverage.So it tics me off to see illegals receiving what I state and feds wont give to even our smallest Americans. This country will go down if the pattern of tax the citizens to house, feed, insure, educate, etc the illegals who Dont pay tax...and those that work are under the table and taking jobs away from the home remodeling/ contracting industry.
Jim Brown July 22, 2014 at 04:21 pm
