Relevant to note:

The surveillance took place over 14 months in 2005 and 2006, under the administration of former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R).

The very party that screams we're under attack from people who hate freedom are the ones the do sh!t like this.

precisely. and what's worse, they don't see the inherent self-contradiction in their policies. gotta protect our non-violent citizens from... our other non-violent citizens!!

right here in my own fair state. cripes. you know, i don't feel as free to express opinions as i used to. sometimes if a friend on here makes a political statement, i'll shy away and not comment. that's a shame.

that is too bad. I feel a little freer, since I have no dependents--er, no human dependents--have poor job prospects, terrible credit, and no kind of reputation or other interests to protect other than my interest in continuing to breathe.

if there's anything heartening in this, it's that the problem corrected itself after someone else was elected. can I just say that the whole concept of term limits and regular elections has become much more important to me in the last several months?

"Hutchins said the program was a bulwark against potential violence and called the activists "fringe people."

Wait, wait... I consider myself an activist because I am taking action to improve, if ever so slightly, the condition of the neighborhood. So, in Maryland -- and quite possibly right here -- I'm a potentially violent "fringe people"?

Come to think of it, though, I do swing an axe, and mainstream I ain't...

:o)

welcome to the club! I've been a fringe person pretty much since I popped out of the womb and screamed get me the hell out of here!

ok I made up that last part but it would have been a good move.
