In case you missed it this last week in The Washington Post, Montgomery County is having a crisis with a $120 million shortfall in their fiscal budget. I know… you’re shocked…
The verdict in the Kate Steinle murder case has me wondering if criminal justice has been replaced by social justice. I have read and heard countless explanations by progressive talking heads, who are saying – or who have written – that the acquittal of Ms. Steinle’s accused murderer Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was shocking, but fair.
I’m a gas guzzling, gun toting, bible thumping redneck, and you’re a tree hugging, granola chewing, flag burning professional victim. Now shut your mouth and pass the gravy!
Republican efforts leading up to the Frederick City municipal elections were slow and cumbersome. Much of the support promised by the Maryland State Republican Party for Frederick City had been rerouted to Annapolis to hold the line there.
Like it or not, the Frederick City general election was indeed a decisive route for the Frederick County Republican Party. I saw where some of the GOP our candidates offered a portrait of poise and graciousness in defeat.

When America was a fledgling nation many of our countryman had fought directly in the American Revolution and others did so indirectly on its behalf. The consensus was for many to return to their farms, taverns, or store and let the political people work out the details.
I remember when football was a chance for everyone to come together and cheer on their team. The business of football was football. A sports team of any kind was once a unifying opportunity for entire communities to join in fellowship.
