Business As Usual In Maryland

The People’s Republic of Maryland is a sorry place with regard to the elected slugs in Annapolis. Blair Lee has a great piece outlining what is taking place in the Legislature and it is not pretty. The Governor and his Democrats are playing games with tax increases (after raising taxes to historic levels a few years ago) and pretending that there are no increases. They are calling tax increases fees (something they hammered former Governor Ehrlich over) and they are moving money all over the place.

Speaking of hoaxes, lawmakers are pulling a fast one with the new money that the teachers and state employees must contribute to their woefully underfunded pension fund. O’Malley and the legislature are siphoning off $120 million of new pension contributions to pay for other programs. Yep, it’s another raid just like the raids on the transportation fund, the parks fund, the university’s reserves, etc.

This is the kind of crap that got us into trouble in the first place. They have a tax set up for one thing and then they rape that fund to provide money for some social program or to pay bribes to supporters and then they whine that there is not enough money in the previously funded program and then claim thy need to raise taxes AGAIN. They are guilty of malfeasance and should all be tried, convicted and sent to jail.

Read the article and see if there is any way to make what the Maryland politicians are doing ethical. Look and see if this kind of crap is OK with you or if it makes your blood boil. If you live in Maryland get out and vote to get rid of these cretins and replace them with people who actually know how to manage money.

It is time to jail these criminals and start over.

Cave Canem!
Never surrender, never submit.
