Also, in Maryland news, my State Senator asked me...
"You're looking to expand and relocate your business. On one side of the river, you have a state that just made the tough decisions to invest in its people, fund education, and balance its budget. On the other, you have a state that considered the judicial appointment of a Navy officer who risked his life for his country and returned to become a career prosecutor--and rejected him because he's gay. Which do you choose?"
Well, the answer is the one that trusts me to be a citizen rather than a subject and is also cheaper. So, not Maryland, if I could help it. The ONLY reasons I don't live in Virginia is inertia and their horrible traffic.
Maryland just jacked up the taxes on ciggies and any of those rich fat cats making more than $100,000 a year. If you live in Bethesda Maryland and you make $100,000 a year I know what your apartment looks like. It looks like a trash dumpster. Because that is what it actually IS, as it is all you can afford to rent.
