    Well every bodies... Doing it.. even Democrat Governors..funny though they didn't mention the Governor was a Democrat...

    --------------------:eusa_eh:


    With state lawmakers preparing to make decisions in the coming weeks on budget cuts and pension reform, thousands of union members marched Monday evening on Annapolis to send a message.

    The marchers were met by a counterprotest, organized by tea party activists, of several dozen taxpayers asking for deeper state budget cuts.

    The union group was large enough to cut off traffic in downtown Annapolis. Chanting "keep the promise" and "enough is enough," they decried efforts by Gov. Martin O'Malley and legislators to change employee contributions to their retirement plans, a move that officials say would save the state an estimated $100 million next year.

    Uh, you DO know that Baltimore is in Maryland, right? Of course they didn't mention that O'Mally is a democrat. Everyone in Maryland already knows that. How many times do you see the President mentioned in a newspaper as "President Barak Obama (D) USA"?

    From the article...


    "O'Malley, a Democrat who drew broad union support in his election campaigns, made an unexpected appearance at the conclusion of the rally. He told workers that he, too, is unhappy with the budget."​

    They usually spell his name right..

    There's no mistaking Obama's a Democrat..

    and... I didn't know O' Malley was a Democrat, why would I?

    Also.. are you the new post monitor?

    He questioned why the article did not mention O'Malley's party (which is now seen as being untrue anyway), and I provided an answer. What is the issue?
