As the dust begins to settle from the midnight adjournment of the Maryland General Assembly for the 2011 session, I really don't have much to say. The 9% alcohol tax passed both Houses of the General Assembly late Monday night and is headed for the governor's desk. Ditto for the in-state tuition for illegals bill.
Simply put, we live in an oligarchy where nothing we say matters. There is no deterrent to the criminal behavior exhibited by the legislators because they rightfully know that the asinine voters of Maryland will reelect them. As such, they can even raise taxes and expend that money towards criminal aliens who don't even belong in this country. Sadly, there is nothing we can do to deter them from enacting such egregious laws.
We can only take solace in the fact that there is a higher being-one who is watching the insidious behavior of the lawmakers who are lawbreakers. Other than that, our only recourse is to vote with our feet and move to another state.
