    well…..at least there was SOME good news in Maryland tonight.

    But of course the council will take this to court….but hey, who cares what nearly 70% of MoCo residents think. We know better, we’ll show ’em! jeez…….and these morons wonder why it past nearly 2-1. Can’t get rid of these morons fast enough.

    now lets try to work on kicking our Delaney and Raskin in ’18 and Van Moron in ’22. But we can keep Cardin, he’s actually a stand-up guy
