Gun control does not work and even if it did the Second Amendment protects our right to keep and bear arms. In fact, it says that right shall NOT be infringed. The Governor of Maryland is following the lead of the anti American Governor of New York with draconian, and unconstitutional, gun legislation. In fact, it looks like Martin O’Malley is trying to one up Cum-o of NY. I guess he feels he needs to out Socialist the guy because both are mentioned as possible contenders for the presidency (God help us).
Martin O’Malley is anti American, period. He is trying to violate the rights of law abiding citizens with laws that will not do one damn thing to stop violence. Nothing proposed in the bill will stop violence and it will not prevent an incident like the one that happened in Connecticut, period.
But that is not stopping the Governor who is channeling his inner Hitler in order to intimidate people into compliance. Certain firearms, that the state calls assault weapons, (that is a fabricated name to make them sound scary) will be banned. Anyone who owns one prior to the ban can keep it but must register it with the state. Why does the state need firearms registered? So it can confiscate them when the next round of anti gun laws are brought to bear. If some tragedy occurs then the state will say it must now take those firearms and it will know where to go. The law forces compliance by enacting a high fine and minimum REQUIRED jail sentence of 5 years.
Hitler did that when he took over countries. Signs were posted indicating people had 24 hours to turn in all firearms or they would go to jail. Those who turned them in late were shot. Some who were found later were shot or jailed. Hitler’s forces were able to use the records from conquered areas to determine who had the firearms. The same kind of gun registration was tried here prior to America’s entry into WWII and it was shot down. Maryland’s anti American governor is doing the same thing. It is all about controlling people. But, but, that could not happen here. Tell the Japanese Americans from WWII that it could not happen. Tell the Native Americans that government will not disarm you and then murder you.
O’Malley happens to be a small minded pathetic little man with a god complex. He is an elitist who thinks he knows better than the rubes he was elected to lead. He has ignored his oath of office and he has abused the power he was given by the people. He seems to have forgotten that government derives its just power from the consent of those governed. Violating our rights is not a just power.
O’Malley and Obama are two peas in a pod. Obama is reportedly using a new litmus test to determine which officers will stay in the military. If they say they will obey orders to fire on Americans then they can stay. Those who will not will be shown the door.
How long will it be before Martin O’Malley has his National Guard and police forces training to disarm citizens and fire on them to accomplish that task?
I put nothing past this guy. He is a lowlife who claims that we need to save the children while supporting murder in the womb.
It is going to get very ugly around here if agents of the state fire on the people. I guess they will feel like it is alright because any new gun laws here will produce a whole new class of criminals; those who refused to comply.
Martin O’Malley is surrounded by armed police officers, who are paid for by taxpayers, to protect his sorry butt. Why is he any more important than the rest of us? Why are they armed with things the rest of us will be prohibited from owning?
It is always easy for those who are protected by armed guards to tell the rest of us we don’t need guns for protection.
New York is getting more totalitarian…

Anyone who reads this blog (and I know who the three of you are) knows that I am not a fan of Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley. He is a lying, tax raising, snake oil salesman who plays class warfare. He has made Maryland a state from which the wealthy leave to escape oppressive taxes and his policies are not business friendly so companies bypass the state to go to states with more favorable tax structures.
You can tell when O’Malley (or O’Moron as I call him) is lying because not only are his lips moving but he squints. He lies so much you could blindfold him with dental floss.
But like the truth that a broken clock is right twice a day even O’Moron is caught telling the truth once in a blue moon (which we had on Friday…). O’Moron was asked Sunday if we are better off now than we were four years ago. He answered no and said that it is all George Bush’s fault.
Yes, I know the tired drum beat of Bush’s fault. But O’Moron has nothing else. He said it was bad out there but not because of Democrat policies, because of Bush. Interestingly, Bush was not governor of Maryland and the state is in bad shape so who is to blame for that?
A strange thing happened though. On Sunday O’Moron said we were not better off. He must not have gotten the memo from the DNC on which lies to tell so he was taken out to the woodshed and Bookered (where Mayor Cory booker criticized an Obama attack ad and had to walk back his criticism after being taken to the woodshed).
On Monday Martin O’Moron changed his tune and walked back the statement now claiming we are better off than we were four years ago.
Apparently, we were not better off before we were.
Someone get this guy a breath mint. Considering what he is talking out of his breath smells pretty bad.
As an aside, Cory Booker fell today and injured his leg. I hope it is nothing serious and he has a quick recovery from his injury.

Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley is a tax and spend liberal in the same mold as Barack Obama. O’Moron (as I not so affectionately call him), believes that the rich don’t pay enough and that the money people make belongs to him. Yes, like Obama, O’Moron thinks of taxpayers as ATMs that have unlimited supplies of money to dispense for harebrained, and often unconstitutional, schemes.
O’Moron has aspirations of becoming president one day. He would like to continue Obama’s destructive policies (as he has in Maryland) in order to completely destroy this great nation.
Mark Levin recently called out O’Moron. I must say, Levin was spot on in his analysis of O’Moron:
While O’Moron thinks rich people don’t pay enough in taxes the rich have a different opinion. They are leaving Maryland in droves and it would appear as if they are moving to places like Florida where there are no state income taxes.
Yes, the article claims that the opposition says there is a net wash on inflow* (probably illegals or low wage earners looking for gubmint handouts) and outflow and that other things influence these kinds of decisions (like weather) but the reality is rich people are moving out. Surely those other factors affect people who are not rich so why are they not as mobile? [* it is possible that many of the inflow are from the people who moved here because of BRAC]
Perhaps because far too many pay no income taxes and live off the largess of those who actually pay taxes (through confiscation and redistribution by the government). O’Moron has certainly created an environment where those who do not pay taxes are comfortable living off those who do. He has further created an environment where people who have money do not want to stick around.
O’Moron has enacted tax after tax after tax so much so that the Welcome to Maryland signs are snidely referred to as having the tagline; “What’s in your wallet?”
This man is not a leader (and it is a stretch to call him a man) and he does not deserve to be in a position to take decisions that affect the lives of others. He could not lead a group of people out of a burning building so he should not be in charge of anything.
The people of Maryland have the government they deserve because far too many people in this state continue to vote for the same politicians each and every election. The state is a mini Communist regime with big brother dictating every aspect of our lives and taking money from the producers in order to pay for moronic programs.
It is probably too late for Maryland to address the situation because too many people here are on the liberal handout plantation and can’t leave their masters.
One can only hope that the country will be fed up enough after Obama that O’Moron NEVER gets the chance to lead the country.
One nanny state, liberal, Socialist, Commie, redistributionist, class warfare, sock puppet is bad enough.
We cannot afford to have another…

I wanted to make it clear with the title that it was Maryland DEMOCRATS who raised taxes. Maryland is a one party rule, liberal state and Republicans have no control over the legislative process. Republicans did NOT vote for the tax hike, only the DEMOCRATS did.
Maryland Democrats voted to lower deductions and raise the tax rate for higher income earners in order to fund out of control spending and cover malfeasance that has become the standard in the state.
Taxes were raised in a special session that was called by Governor Martin O’Malley because his Democrats failed to screw taxpayers during the regular session. O’Malley called a special session a few years ago in order to raise a plethora of taxes that he claimed were needed to fix the budget.
Those tax increases did not pan out as fewer wage earners paid more in taxes and shoppers found ways to avoid the sales tax. In essence, raising taxes failed to solve the problem.
So, in a true demonstration of insanity, the Democrats held another O’Malley special session and raised income taxes on single earners making more than 100k a year and couples earning over 150k a year. Martin is using the Democrat playbook of taxing the “wealthy” in order to redistribute that wealth to the poor. The money will be used to pay for more social programs and for illegal aliens who find Maryland to be an illegal alien friendly state.
I call the governor Martin O’Moron because he is an absolute moron. His Democrats failed to raise taxes and the result was that cuts would automatically take place to the tune of millions of dollars.
Ever the liberal moron, O’Malley could not let this happen because he would not have the money needed to pay off his friends in the unions and the poor who suckle at the teat of government enslaved to an ideology that holds little regard for people except for the value of their vote. Keep voting Democrat and they throw out some scraps.
The problem is that those who work and pay taxes will have to keep paying for the scraps.
O’Malley is working on his national creds because he wants to be the president some day. He is not content bending taxpayers over and taking advantage of them at the state level so he needs to move to the national level where he can stroke his enormous ego at the expense of the nation.
There is no reason to increase taxes in Maryland. It has plenty of wealth because of its proximity to DC and it has a tax base that pays quite a bit. The problem is that the Legislature (read the DEMOCRATS) uses the money for things other than the intended purpose. They raped the transportation fund of millions of dollars for other pet projects or to cover budget shortfalls and now they are looking at increasing other taxes to make up the money they misappropriated.
Many higher wage earners who are fortunate have been able to leave the state and many more will follow because it is unfriendly to those who work and pay taxes.
I know a number of people in the state will ignore this and rationalize that it does not affect them because they don’t make “that kind of money” but it will affect them. Teacher’s pensions were pushed to the local level and that will require tax increases locally (or better yet, budget cuts) to pay for that move. People who own businesses and hire will do less because of their tax burden.
I recommend people shop online, shop in Delaware and Virginia and restructure their income so more of it is not taxable.
The only way to beat the beast is to starve the beast.
O’Malley has his jackbooted foot on our throats and he will continue to crush the life out of us until we fight back and remove the morons from office. It is time for all of us to remove these people from office and put in place those who will work for us as representatives of us. It is time we in Maryland had the Republican form of government guaranteed to us by the US Constitution.
It starts by removing those who are serving themselves and special interests and replacing them with true representatives of the people.
We fought a Revolution over less than this and our Founders would have been shooting by now. We need a peaceful revolution at the ballot box and it is time those enslaved to government realize that very soon the money spigot will be turned off as wage earners move out.
It is also time for the politicians to realize that they are now enemies of the state and are harming the people they are supposed to be working for.
The only special session I want to see from now on is the one that brings those who have done this to us together so they can face charges for their malfeasance.
Never surrender, never submit.

The famous line from Forrest Gump appropriately fits Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley. Not long into his first term he decided that there needed to be a special session of the legislature to increase revenue which is liberal talk for raising taxes. One of the things raised (among a number of taxes) was the state’s sales tax. It increased 20% from 5 cents to 6 cents.
O’Moron told us that the tax increases were needed to close a budget gap, one created by Democrats who spend too much.
Imagine the surprise of the Democrats when the expected revenue did not materialize. They just could not figure out why the tax increases did not generate what they thought they would.
Maryland is a small state and borders other states with either lower sales tax or NO sales tax. Why not just drive to Delaware to make purchases?
The Transportation fund in Maryland is depleted because politicians raided it and used the money for things that were not transportation related. Now that the fund is full of IOUs they need to build it back up to repair roads. O’Moron wants to raise the sales tax another cent to pay for these transportation needs. Keep in mind that the taxpayers in this state funded the transportation fund in the first place. It is not our fault the politicians spent the money but we are the ones they turn to with their hat in hand and hands in our pockets.
This sales tax increase is a last ditch effort to increase taxes. O’Moron wanted to increase the gas tax AND apply the state sales tax to it (as if gas is not costly enough) but that was rejected so now it is on to increasing the sales tax.
The cynic in me thinks that this was the plan all along. O’Moron wanted the gas tax and if it had passed he would have been happy to rape us for the money but I think he knew it would never pass and this increase in the sales tax was his default position. To the uninformed it will look “no so bad” compared to a huge increase on gas. I mean, it is only a cent…
Regardless of what the process is the reality is that Marylanders are taxed enough, or should I say more than enough. Our problem is that we spend too much. Period.
We need to cut spending and cut taxes to increase the revenue to the state. It works every time it is tried.
But O’Moron is a tax and spend Democrat as are his Democrats in Annapolis. Plus, O’Moron has national ambitions. He wants to be president someday and if he ever accomplishes that he will be no better than the current occupant of the White House.
O’Moron is working on his national Dem creds so he will appeal to liberals across the country. He needs to be seen as a left wing lunatic with increased taxes, abortion on demand, illegals on the dole, and gay marriage under his belt so he will be part of the “in crowd” in the Democrat national scene.
It matters not to him that an increase in taxes will hurt the little people he and his party claim to protect (those with money will shop in other states). It matters not that his plans will result in lower revenue just as it did the last time.
All he cares about is positioning himself for the national scene.
We are taxed enough already Marty so how about you man up and cut the spending?
