Transracial Adoption Rally In Montgomery

 

Bigot Congressman Alvin Holmes

 

 

” A statement made on the floor of the state house last month in Montgomery got a loud reply this afternoon from angry parents.

  State representative Alvin Holmes said republican lawmakers would support abortion if their daughters became pregnant by black men. Holmes later said he would offer $100,000 cash to anyone who could show “a whole bunch of whites” have adopted black children in Alabama.

  Today at the state house, white parents who adopted mixed race or minority children said it’s time for Holmes to ‘pay up.’

Rain (tax), Rain (tax), Go Away

 

 

” Up to this point Maryland’s rain tax, although onerous, was at least uniform (i.e., everyone paying the same tax rate on the amount of impervious surfaces they own).

Then things got screwy. First, state lawmakers limited the rain tax to only 10 of Maryland’s 24 local jurisdictions (Baltimore city and Anne Arundel, Howard, Carroll, Harford, Charles, Montgomery, P.G., Frederick and Baltimore counties).

So, a shopping mall in Charles County must pay a huge yearly rain tax while a similar mall next door in Calvert County does not. Shouldn’t we all be saving the Bay together?

State lawmakers further decided that, within the 10 rain tax counties, certain properties should be exempt, namely those owned by the state and local governments (and volunteer fire departments). That’s right, they included churches and nonprofits but excluded themselves. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kimberlin Story Gains Traction

The presence of IBD at Aaron Walker’s Hearing would seem to indicate that the story of Brett Kimberlin is finally starting to gain some notoriety other than just in the blogosphere .

   “Adding to Walker’s difficulties is that Vaughey looks to be in his late 60s at least. He mentioned a few times about being retired. (Apparently it’s common for retired judges to sometimes come back to the bench to help active judges with the caseload.) Many of Vaughey’s statements suggest that he doesn’t spend much time on the Internet. Thus, he’s probably not intimately familiar with things like Google (GOOG) and Twitter and how they work.

It seemed like Walker did himself in when the judge asked, “Where do you see this case going?”

Walker, who has tried to get the Maryland State Attorney to file charges against Kimberlin for filing what Walker claims are false criminal charges against him (see here), replied, “I hope to raise enough consciousness to get the State’s Attorney to file charges.”

“How are you going to do that?” Vaughey asked.

 Walker replied, “I’ve been raising awareness. There’s now 400,000 posts on Google discussing him (Kimberlin), and I’m guessing 300,000 of them are not very pleasant. These are people calling for charges to be filed.”

If you are a judge who knows very little about the Internet, Walker has just made it sound as though he’s able to generate all of this Google traffic against Kimberlin. And Vaughey seemed to believe that is what caused Kimberlin to get death threats.”

Keep him on the public’s mind .

  “Convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin’s failed attempt to silence bloggers who tell the
truth about Kimberlin’s criminality will be the subject of a court hearing Tuesday morning in Montgomery County,
Maryland.
   Kimberlin, who in 1981 was sentenced to 50 years in federal prison for his Indiana bombing spree and other crimes , has
requested a “peace order” against Virginia attorney Aaron Walker, who says Kimberlin tried to “frame” him on an assault charge
earlier this year.
   The final hearing on
Kimberlin’s peace order request – which Walker has described as “frivolous” – is scheduled for Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. in Montgomery County District Court ( 191 E. Jefferson St., Rockville, Md. 20850 ), according to the court’s official Web site .”
