At least she won't raise taxes like O'Malley does.

It would be an improvement here in the People's Republic of Maryland.

Is this somehow tied in with Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Egyptian army?

Elementary school is out for the summer.  She finished third grade, but I heard she was at the back of the class.

She just finished the third grade, and school is out for the summer. She will be a fourth grader when the next school year begins. Thus, "rising" fourth grader.

Sorry that he missed a chance to sell her into the human trafficking trade.

So, was she detained by the PG cops, illegally searched and written a bogus ticket?
Those farkers are awful.

Just drove across the Bay Bridge. It was $2.50 a little over a year ago and is now $6.00. Maybe she won't let him back in the state house. I really hope y'all have wised up after the whole "hope and change" debacle and don't vote him in when he runs for president.

I know where that is...about 1 mile from me. If I bought that house I'd have to change a few things.

Back on topic, the headline had me hopeful.  Sounds like an improvement.

CMYK and PMS: don't vote him in when he runs for president.


Oh jeez.  NOOOOOOOO.  I'll take a 3rd Obama term over an O'Malley presidency and I am NOT an Obama fan..  That would just be awful.

Thanks for clearing that up... I was actually putting in the bios on this page (http://www.barharborbrass.org/?page=content&pageid=12 ) and the term "rising" for the grades was used often, but, I just assumed it was some term for saying they were vastly improving brass players.

Also to be mentioned is to still be 8 years old right now and even just "entering" 4th grade is on the extremely young side.  My daughter is what would be considered "late birthday" in her grade (April), and is 8 and will be entering 3rd (so, she will be turning 18 two months before H.S. graduation).   This girl, even if we assume she'll be 9 very soon (July), would be graduating high school at the very least a month before she turns 18.   The summer birthdays honestly people just have to pick, and some hold back, and others don't (my daughters cousin is a year and two months younger, but, 2 grades behind her in school).  But, just saying, she is obviously doing very well if she got this honor.

With your fark handle? for shame.

Wah ! Wah ! I drive across two large bodies of water in my daily commute; they can raise taxes all they want as long as the money gets spent on schools, road repairs or Bay restoration.

/// I live in an affluent section of the Eastern Shore ; it slays how my "neighbors" complain about the taxes they pay here while riding around in their cars with Florida tags ....

She also experienced how to take bribes to look the other way, and even had a video tape scandal! What a complete political experience lol!

Not all of the Irish in Maryland like the guy. His band, FWIW, sucks, unless you're half-faced. Which I usually am, and they still aren't any good. Seriously, there's tons of Irish-rock bands around that are far better and don't require a 6 pack or a bottle of Jameson to sound good.

As for the other stuff:

 Aside from the gay marriage issue, O'Malley has done little to stem the rampant spending in the State budget. When 26% of the total state budget comes from direct federal funds ( $9.7 Billion), is there real growth? Mostly it is being in close proximity to DC. And yes, NoVA leads with more total funding but considering everything from property taxes to cost of living in that cesspool is cheaper, go figure.

For that matter, at the onset of the Great Recession, his answer was to railroad through the General Assembly the largest increase in sales tax and fees ever seen- moving the ST up 1% when the economy was in trouble, then gas taxes and tolls since people weren't traveling as much to make up the difference .Typical Annapolis idiocy- raise taxes and fees to pull us out of a recession.

You guys wait. I'm with the above poster- I'm no Obama fan, but I'd take a third term of him than one of the Teflon Leprechaun.
