Please liberate us from our oppressive State government, cyber warriors!!!
Don O'Neill April 18, 2014 at 05:24 pm
It sounds as though Senator Catherine Pugh is pining for a job in the private sector. Here is whatRead More she said: 1. “Our government doesn’t move as quickly as the private sector ... and the private sector isn’t moving as quickly as it should be,” Sen. Catherine Pugh, D-Baltimore, said in an interview. 2. “I look at the government from the perspective of a business,” Pugh said. “... What do want the state to look like three years from now? I don’t think we do enough of that kind of thinking and planning.” Let me identify some of the issues that Senator Catherine Pugh and her colleagues in Annapolis should be thinking about on behalf of the citizens of Maryland. 1. Stop pretending that Maryland is the leader in state Health Care web sites. 2. Stop pretending that Maryland is the center of excellence for Cyber Security. 3. Stop pretending that the Chesapeake Bay is clean. 4. Stop pretending that Maryland's soft position on marijuana is supported by its citizens. 5. Stop contemplating the use of fracking. 6. Stop wasting time and money on Bond Bill earmarks. 7. Stop sweeping the Baltimore City prison scandal under the rug. 8. Stop pretending that Maryland is winning the jobs race with Virginia. 9. Stop pretending that Maryland has an adult candidate for Governor. 10. Stop pretending that Governor O'Malley is viable candidate for President.

Its not the games, its the people... I hear hot dogs are the number one food choked on, lets banRead More them and set limitations as it can not be smaller than your esophagus. Maybe we should hold the person responsible for his action and not limit others for his ignorance. People that think like that upset me. I am so sick of this self help, twelve step, leftover hippie generation bullshit! Its not the entertainment, the guns, or the games, its that person. Despite crime rates we have more good than evil people. That's like saying a book is bad because of the title without reading it. Like this comic book for kids called Dead Babies.

Brian, pretty stupid thing to say, Why don't you blame the weather on him also. I'm not of fan ofRead More Obama either, but lets not get stupid either.

The animal's father, who owns the NAC is just as immoral and disgusting. sleeping with his salonRead More staff. Stay classy Worthington family! Stay classy

This is news and in the Patch because no one has heard of Millbrae. Mike Robinson, Christine, EricRead More S. what is wrong with you people. Nothing happens in Millbrae, don't you want to hear the news?

I hope the young man who got bit by Mr. Worthington's teeth (rusty Nails), gets a tetnus shot realRead More quick. A human bite is very dirty, and judging from Mr. Worthington's scruff, it doesn't look like he brushes his teeth very often!

why are you posting things like this to mislead us into thinking it happened in Studio City? WhatRead More is this crap doing on the LOCAL Patch??

Kudos to the judge! Most criminals don't get what they deserve anymore.

Hey Joe,I bet you'd hit that,eh slick?
Grumpy Old Man April 18, 2014 at 05:29 pm
I don't think she'd fit in Old Sparky, a rope would probably break if they tried to hang her, theyRead More would have to use a year's supply of chemicals for lethal injection and a long long sword. I opt for the guillotine.
Life April 18, 2014 at 12:26 pm
I agree with MG42. POTUS is set for life. Former Presidents rake in millions long after they'veRead More served. How do you know the CEO's of private companies aren't giving much of their income away? But it sounds like Fran wants to take it away by force.
CeeCee April 18, 2014 at 03:43 pm
PEOPLE...there are 300,000 people in our neighboring state who still can't drink their water as theRead More result of a CEO "sitting on his ass" making arbitrary decisions or ignoring obligations to the community and regarding all of US as nothing more than collateral damage. And paying taxes? LOL, as if. There was a time in this country (1950s-60s) when small businesses didn't make their owners rich, but fulfilled and happy; and big businesses paid taxes and their CEOs made only 30 times more than the average salary of the company employees. CEOs can have a great idea 24/7/365 but very few are responsible for bringing it to fruition ALL BY THEMSELVES! Businesses were set up to be economic entities beholden to the communities they operate in and serve. Instead wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony--the seven deadly sins--which are also exhibited in some of the comments above and sure to follow--have turned our country as well as our planet into a trash heap making US scavengers, ruthless, destitute, vile and/or sad.
Life April 18, 2014 at 04:52 pm
Cee Cee, all big businesses started as SMALL businesses! Now if a CEO and his board agree toRead More compensate him/her multi millions, who are we to bash them? That's their right as a private company. If you don't like it, then boycott the company. That's your right. And let me ask you: When was the last time you paid half of your income in taxes? Do you know that for every dollar a business owner makes, he has to set aside half of it for Uncle Sam??? My guess is that you've never truly run your own business. If you did, it would change you.

Are the kids going to be encouraged to speak out against Pot smoking, which is even moreRead More carcinogenic? Let me answer that ... NO !!

Daniella Ruiz April 18, 2014 at 02:58 pm
tom g >> having cafeteria personell actually do work at any federal site is a bigRead More misunderstanding, didn't you know/read about that? lowering payroll cost's by handing the job/effort off to the customer has been going on since 'self serve/checkout' started. but notice, they can afford a GS 10 security guy to wander around most of the time just watching and waiting for these heinous transgressors.
joebanana April 18, 2014 at 03:03 pm
Just what "federal" law is it that this person is being extorted over? And shouldn't aRead More sign be posted warning that "drink refills" are a federal crime?

Attempted Kidnapping will bring the F.B.I. every time.

And FYI... forcing the manager into an office then making him tote the cash out to the robbers van?Read More = Kidnapping
Clayton King April 18, 2014 at 11:01 am
And don't attempted murder bring in the FBI? I dunno but if the guy who shot the manager as he wasRead More driving off seems that's attempted murder js
Maryland utilities are being urged to give residents until the end of May to pay off winter's whopping utility bills. FIle|Patch

As far as smart meters are concerned the only people they benefit are the utilities. It is justRead More another piece of the big brother is watching you. The things they can find out about your private life can be sold to the appropriate interested party. So the know when you're watching TV, on the computer and much, much more. Also, if you have some type of artificial assist like a pace maker don't even get close to the device.
Pam Hamburg April 18, 2014 at 07:05 pm
LOL, Sharon, first I gotta go thru Plan A, before moving on to B. It would be great if most wouldRead More take my stand, but they won't because they are chickens**ts. Plan B is a good plan, but not everyone wants to go there. It's not illegal, neither of my plans are.
Bryan Harz April 18, 2014 at 07:20 pm
Just read they can tell what appliances are on by the type of load your residence is drawing.Read More Motors, heating elements are higher loads than consumer electronics. It seems like they can't tell the difference between the levels of loads, but not positive they can tell the difference between the individual levels of loads. Like if your TV and PC had the same or close power supply watt ratings, they wouldn't know which one you turn on. Just that something drawing a particular amount of current was turned on. That's what I can tell.

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.
kathleen macmurray April 17, 2014 at 08:46 am
A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.

Poor horse. I hope someone equine rescue unit will relieve him from his present circumstances andRead More either give him a good home or find him one.
