‘Ding-ding,’ but no ‘ka-ching’ – “I can almost hear the ‘ding-ding-ding,’ ” enthused the governor. Notice that he didn’t say “ka-ching.” – Slots Article

Wow, over 400 million of projected revenue will go to out of state horse owners and breeders. Good work Maryland, I am glad I did not vote for this garbage. Ehrlichs plan was more friendly fiscally to Maryland then this.

3 Time Illegal Alien Criminal Deported and Re Captured again in Frederick County

Three time deportee arrested in Md.

The Frederick County Sheriff’s officice said a Guatemalan man who has been deported three times was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of taking a woman against her will, the Frederick News-Post reports.

Augustine Ramirez-Martinez, 28, of Frederick , is being held at the Frederick County Adult Detention Center on charges and a detainer by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement authorities. Deputies obtained an arrest warrant for Ramirez-Martinez after being called to the 6700 block of Black Duck Court about a report that a neighbor saw a vehicle with its windows smashed about 6 a.m. Sunday, Capt. Tim Clarke said.

Police traced the vehicle to Lorena Dequerero, 27. Deputies obtained an arrest warrant for Ramirez-Martinez on charges of second-degree assault, false imprisonment, resisting arrest and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

Authorities think Ramirez-Martinez came into the country illegally in 2001.

He was deported back to Guatemala in April 2003 after he was arrested in Delaware on suspicion of driving on a suspended or revoked license.

A little more than 2 1/2 years later, he was deported again after Delaware authorities arrested him on charges of reckless endangerment, terroristic threatening, third-degree assault, second-degree kidnapping, resisting arrest and criminal mischief.

He was deported for the third time in September 2009 by ICE authorities after the Frederick Police Department arrested him on charges of driving under the influence, driving while intoxicated, negligent driving, failing to stop after vehicle damage, failing to notify the owner of the damage, driving while suspended and without a license.

Latino Gang Family Threatens Jurors After Guilty Verdict

Latino Gang Family Threatens Jurors After Guilty Verdict

http://www.nationalpolicyinstitute.org/2010/05/30/latino-gang-family-threatens-jurors-after-guilty-verdict/

Riverside County District Attorney Rod Pacheco said Muñoz’s family members were “lying in wait” near the jury parking lot. Officials said the family started yelling threats to all 12 jurors and Muñoz’s mother punched one juror.

Jurors who had just convicted a gang member of murdering a 16-year-old boy were confronted outside the Riverside courthouse Thursday by the defendant’s angry relatives, who shouted threats and punched one juror, sheriff’s officials said.

Two family members and a friend of the defendant were arrested. The juror who was hit, a 47-year-old man, did not require medical attention.

Thomas Cahraman, presiding judge of Riverside County Superior Court, said Friday that the attack is under investigation and that juror security will be stepped up.

He said people should not be fearful about serving as jurors. The judge said he could not recall another physical confrontation between jurors and a defendant’s family in his 33 years at the court.

“The fact that it’s rare does not take away from the fact that it happened, and we’ll be devoting resources to see it never happens again,” Cahraman said.

The jurors had found Andres Muñoz guilty of first-degree murder for the 2006 shooting of Derek Ochoa, 16, in a case involving gang rivalry in Riverside’s La Sierra neighborhood.

The Legal Citizens and Legal Immigrants of Maryland find Kim Propeack’s out of office remarks, regarding Bigotry to be dysfunctional and distasteful and hateful.

 

The only bigots and racists and haters and xenophobes I know is Casa De Maryland who blatantly breaks the law by harboring, assisting and abetting illegal aliens and printing out documentation on how to evade the law.   Kim Propeack’s statement about bigotry is absolutely disgraceful and menacing and she is a traitor to the American Flag.  Maryland LEGAL Citizens and LEGAL Immigrants are no longer going to take a back seat to the lawless activities of this group.  Below is an email I received from someone who is upset with your activities and the out of office response from Kim.  Shame shame shame on you.  Not only do you file frivalous lawsuits against a Sheriff doing his job and enforcing Immigration laws already on the books, you verbally attack all groups who do not stand in your corner and call them racists, bigots, and extremist, all because we don’t want your Illegal Alien filth destroying our nation and our properties and committing vicious crimes in our communities.  When you were asked the question regarding Illegal Immigration (Attorney), you were wrong and had the law spoken to you word for word.  Here is Kimmie’s out of office response and this is going to tons of people.  Trust me when I say, you are going to get allot more emails regarding this issue.  You can’t stop everyone from expressing their first amendment rights, especially if they are a legal citizen.  We will continue to protest and rally against Casa until all funding is stopped and day labor centers shutdown that are willfully sending out Illegal Aliens to do the work of the legal citizen and legal immigrant.  As you clearly state on your own website, We will help find you work regardless of your Immigration Status, sounds like breaking of the law to me.  We will also continue to report the business’s that are taking on these law breakers.   Honestly, the more times you cry wolf and attack those who are following the immigration laws on the book, the less credible you are, not saying your Organization in the first place is credible.  Here is the interpretation in Spanish, disclaimer, since I am using a translator, it may be worded differently, or not as I have written it in Spanish, but I will state as a disclaimer since hundreds are receiving this email, I have in no way, shape or form made any threats to anyone whatsoever, I am expressing my first amendment right to free speech.

Los ciudadanos legales y los inmigrantes legales de Maryland saber Kim Propeack de observaciones de oficina, en relación con intolerancia a ser disfuncionales y desagradable y odiosa.

Los fanáticos solamente y los racistas y xenófobos que odian y lo que sé es el hotel Casa de Maryland, que evidentemente viola la ley por la acogida, la asistencia y la complicidad a extranjeros ilegales y la impresión de documentación sobre la forma de evadir la ley. Kim Propeack declaración sobre la intolerancia es absolutamente vergonzoso y amenazador y ella es un traidor a la bandera americana. Maryland ciudadanos legales y los inmigrantes legales ya no se va a quedar en segundo plano a las actividades fuera de la ley de este grupo. A continuación se muestra un correo electrónico que recibí de alguien que está molesto con sus actividades y del resultado de la respuesta de la oficina de Kim. Shame Shame Shame en usted. No sólo presentar demandas judiciales en contra de un sheriff frivalous haciendo su trabajo y hacer cumplir las leyes de inmigración ya en los libros, usted verbalmente atacar todos los grupos que no se interponga en su esquina y los llaman racistas, intolerantes, extremistas y, todo porque no quiere que su mugre ilegal Alien destruir nuestra nación y nuestras propiedades y cometer crímenes atroces en nuestras comunidades. Cuando se les preguntó la cuestión relativa a la Inmigración Ilegal (Fiscal), que se había equivocado y la ley hablado palabra por palabra. Aquí está fuera Kimmie de respuesta de la oficina y esto va a toneladas de gente. Confía en mí cuando digo, usted va a obtener emails asignar más sobre este tema. Usted no puede dejar de expresar todos sus derechos primera enmienda, sobre todo si es un ciudadano legal. Vamos a seguir la protesta y la manifestación contra la Casa hasta que toda la financiación se detiene y los jornaleros que son centros de apagado intencionalmente el envío de extranjeros ilegales para hacer el trabajo de los ciudadanos legales e inmigrantes legales. Como claramente en su propia página web, nos ayudará a encontrar usted trabaja independientemente de su estado de inmigración, suena como quebrantamiento de la ley para mí. También vamos a seguir informando de la empresa que se están dando en estos violadores de la ley. Sinceramente, cuantas más veces se gritar lobo y atacar a aquellos que están siguiendo las leyes de inmigración en el libro, la menos creíble es usted, sin decir su organización, en primer lugar es creíble. Esta es la interpretación en español, descargo de responsabilidad, ya que estoy utilizando un traductor, puede ser redactadas de forma diferente, o no tal como lo he escrito en español, pero voy a estado como un descargo de responsabilidad ya que cientos recibido este mensaje, tengo en ningún manera, forma o formulario puesto a cualquier amenaza a cualquiera que sea, estoy expresando mi primera enmienda derecho a la libertad de expresión.

Helen, what is so bigot about wanting the laws of this LANd to be enforced. What is wrong with wanting whats best for our country and our families?  We ARe struggling to stay a nation of wealth and its dwindling because of groups like Casa who don’t give a damn about those people but only worry about their paychecks and Money they can steal from taxpayers and chavez.  Casa de MD is one group who teaches illegal Aliens how to scam and cheat the taxpayers. They show illegal Aliens how to obtain welfare by having many babies. *anchor babies*. Then once anchored they get free sec 8 housing, food Stamps and whatever. Then you allow them to work for cash Jobs with your DAy labor camps. So why is Casa de Maryland good for these people? They aren’t!! They are showing illegal I’mmigrants that they can SCam tax $$ by working for cash WIth fake id’s while obtaining many public benefits. You even entice them to vote. ALL OF THIS CRAP IS AGAINST THE LAW. We see it as aiding and abetting. We are not racists or bigots. Words that mean nothing to us. We know better. We know we only want the SCams, diseases, guns, drugs and war lords to go back to the country they ruined and doing a DAmn good job of ruining my country. A country of immigrants who came here and learned English and raised the American Flag with Honor and Integrity. Who came here and worked hard for their families by having 2 and 3 jobs in a legal way not by fake id’s or scams. The Immigrants of yesteryear were to proud to accept charities other than a bread line when needed.  They followed  the laws of this land By honoring our heritage and making us proud to have them join in with the American WAy of life. They kept their properties and the ARea’s they lived in spotlessly clean. I remember sweeping the whole block when other neighbors.  We used trash cans and washed our windows. Soap and water and a broom were cheap and we took advantage of it. We loved sparkling clean windows. How about teaching your illegal buddies how to live productive lives instead of scamming every bit of wealth this country has left.  How ABout teaching them that we citizen taxpayers do not like raising their children through college. What kind of people do that and what  kind of groups tell them this is the right thing to do? The immigrants of yesteryear only had children they can afford. Not rely on taxpayers to raise their kids. You show them how to grab what they can go work for cash and vote. Keep them under your wing so you’ll continue your pathetic Job that you have. Maybe Casa does other things, but these top the list.

 

Just sign me a democrat with values and honoring the love of God and country and for welcoming Immigrants that follow the rules of our land and one that doesn’t worry about your name calling tactics like Racists bigots and whatever. Do a dictionary search for those  words then apply it to people of your nature. BTW. Who wrote the signs your illegal buddies held up at your rally’s?  They can’t read what You wrote for them. Keep doing your unhealthy job. You will be rewarded or not one day!!

Man told to yank sign will seek injunction Lawyer: Action violates constitutional rights

From the Towson Times:

Man told to yank sign will seek injunction

Lawyer: Action violates constitutional rights

By Bryan P. Sears
bsears@patuxent.com

The lawyer for a Towson man who was ordered by the county to remove his campaign yard sign says they will take the case to federal court this week.

Michael Pappas, the Towson attorney for Steve Kolbe, told the Towson Times that Kolbe intends to file a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Baltimore as early as Wednesday, May 26, seeking an injunction against the county to prevent officials from enforcing a county zoning law that restricts the size of signs on residential property.

Pappas said his client made the decision after another attorney, who had been acting as an intermediary between Kolbe and the county, informed Pappas that the county was going to continue to enforce the law.

“They’re going to enforce the sign regulations against Mr. Kolbe and anyone else,” Pappas said, adding that he had not personally had any contact with county officials.

County law prohibits signs larger than 8 square feet — and no more than 8 feet high — on an improved residential lot, and limits signs on commercial lots to 50 square feet.

Also, county law states that campaign signs may be placed on private property only with the express consent of the property owner, and may not be placed in the public right-of-way, or in a location that blocks the ability of drivers to see traffic or pedestrians.

Last week, county code enforcement officials, acting on an anonymous complaint, ordered Kolbe to remove his 32-square foot campaign sign for gubernatorial candidate Robert Ehrlich from the front yard of Kolbe’s home in the 1200 block of Dulaney Valley Road.

Failure to comply would subject Kolbe to a $200 per day fine or 90 days in jail, or both.

Kolbe removed the sign but said he believed the corrective notice was politically motivated.

Pappas said he plans to file a lawsuit next week claiming Kolbe’s constitutional rights under the 1st and 14th amendments have been violated. Pappas said Kolbe may also allege that the county violated his civil rights and the Voting Rights Act.

Kolbe said May 20 that he hoped an intermediary had worked out a deal in which the county would stop enforcing the law for the rest of the 2010 election year, and let the next County Council and county executive revise the law.

Strange, I thought being Republican Meant being Fiscally Conservative.

To the Editor of The Herald Mail,
This time, I actually hope you print this for all of District 2 to see and Washington County voters. Recently, The Tax Pledge has been going around the United States requesting signatures of those in their State House of Delegates and State Senate along with Congressman. Sadly, there is one name missing from the Tax Pledge, which is an assurance that the Legislator Signing their name on the Dotted Line guarantees their Constituency that they will not raise taxes on them. The Name missing you ask? The only Republican Senator in Maryland not signing,is, Senator Don Munson of District 2. As I have said all along, being fiscal means, not raising taxes, voting for bloated budgets and especially not voting for the Millionaires Tax increase which has assisted in the chasing of Jobs and Business’s out of Maryland. This is one Vote and one Pledge to the People that Senator Munson will not be able to escape come election time. If you are interested, here is the link. 13 out of 14 Republican Senators in Maryland’s Senate Caucus signed it. You will see familiar names in our County on the list in the Maryland House of Delegates, Chris Shank, the chosen Conservative Choice for District 2 come November. What you will also see, is that, there is not a Delegate John Donoghue listing either. Therefore, Washington County can assume, should these two get elected again, they will raise your taxes, especially since the Special Millionaires Tax will come to an end soon, as will the Federal Bailout Dollars for Maryland. Citizens, watch out, the crumbs leftover from dinner will soon be your breakfast. Make change, the right change.
