    Maryland pols have been standing in the rain too long

    Maryland pols have been standing in the rain too long

    Because they seem to have lost their minds.

    It’s raining taxes in Maryland.

    Via Common Cents:

    There is an obvious way to return sanity to Maryland:


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.

    How did the last Republican governor work out? It didn’t because the majority of Marylanders are serfs.

      Serfs who are kept on the plantation by the democrat controlled legislature. The democrats did everything that they could to subvert Ehrlich. When Owemalley ran against Ehrlich in 2006, he cast him as a tax hiker. Since then, all that Owemalley has done is ask for more taxes. He and the dems stole the Transportation Trust fund to pay for pork and then said that they had to raise the gas tax because there wasn’t enough money in the Transportation Trust fund to pay for road repair. This was just like the dems who stole from the Social Security Trust fund to pay for the War on Poverty and the rest of the democrat giveaways.

    Maryland will soon be a deserted wasteland if they keep stupidly taxing their revenue base. Why the hell would anyone want to leave in a blue state that taxes the very rain. If Oregon did that, I’d be out in heartbeat.

    In 1999, the federal government issued storm water regulations requiring counties and cities to reduce water pollution associated with storm water runoff.

    Maryland cities are collecting Storm Water Utility fees and those on the Bay are paying additional charges for Bay Restoration. Annapolis charges $10 per quarter for storm water and $15 for bay restoration. Commercial customers pay rates according to square feet of impervious coverage of land.

    So why do ratepayers have to pay again as taxpayers? Lawsuit time is here.

    and in another liberal paradise

    Oregon man in Possession of 13 Million Gallons of Illicit Rainwater Sentenced to Jail

    They started doing this in Philadelphia at the beginning of this year. Oh, but it’s a “Stormwater Management Service Charge”, not a tax. Yeah, right.

    Property owners are the next targeted class, although they won’t demonized them in the press as they want to encourage people to buy property. It makes the golden goose less able to take flight while they pile on the “charges” and “fees”. The mortgage tax break will begin to go away – the Evil Rich will get it first but like everything else, if you think that the definition of “rich” won’t change over time, you are not paying attention. Just wait – it will get worse and worse for anyone who owns property – the young liberal voting base is less and less able to own property given the lousy economy and job creation, so eventually all property owners will be “rich.”
