The Orange-Colored Snake

On her way to vote one morning
Down the path along side the Erie lake
A suburban white woman saw a lyin’ snake
His orange colored skin had been all frosted with the dew
“Poor thing, ” she cried, “I’ll support you always and I’ll vote for you”
“Vote for me suburban white woman
Vote for me, for heaven’s sake
Vote for me white suburban woman, ” sighed the snake
She wrapped him up all cozy in a red ball cap
And retired to his international hotel for the best chocolate cake and a nap
After dinner of the world’s best steaks she realized what she had done
She found that orange colored snake had won
“Vote for me suburban white woman
Vote for me suburban white woman for heaven’s sake
Vote for me suburban white woman, ” sighed the snake
She clutched him to her bosom, “You’re the world’s best, ” she cried
“But if I hadn’t vote for you in by now your campaign would have died”
She stroked his orange colored skin again and kissed and held him tight
Instead of saying thanks, the snake gave her a vicious bite
“Vote for me suburban white woman
Vote for me suburban white woman for heaven’s sake
Vote for me suburban white woman, ” sighed the snake
“I voted for you, ” cried the woman
“And you’ve bitten me, but why?
You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die”
“Oh shut up, silly woman, ” said the reptile with a grin
“You knew damn well I was a snake before you voted me in
“Vote for me suburban white woman
Vote for me suburban white woman for heaven’s sake
Vote for me suburban white woman, ” sighed the snake.

John Liao – Local Recruiter for the Cult of Trump?

The Republican Party has become the cult of Donald J. Trump — a vapid party devoid of values or core beliefs run by a┬ánarcissistic, xenophobic, child. Local Howard County Republican leaders and candidates who do not condemn the party’s drift into tyranny must be considered full members of the cult.

At a recent candidate forum at HCC, Second District County Council candidate John Liao proudly announced that two of his strongest supports were Democratic District 13 Delegate candidate Larry Pretlow II and School Board Candidate Mavourene Robinson. I told Pretlow that it was confusing for the voters when a Democratic candidate in one primary race is openly supporting a Republican in another race in the same election cycle. He got angry. He gave some non-answer, answer about supporting the best candidates.

Now I am beginning to realize what it really might be, the recruitment of members for a cult — the cult of Trump.

Dario Broccolino: “MAGLEV Not Going to Happen”

Howard County State’s Attorney and District 12 Delegate Candidate Dario Broccolino said at the League of Women Voters’ Candidate Forum on June 2 that the MAGLEV between New York and Washington is “not going to happen.” Well, the people building it would beg to differ.

I have lots of questions about routes and environmental impacts of the MAGLEV and the competing Hyperloop, but the United States and the mid-Atlantic region in particular need 21st Century transportation options. The United States can’t allow other countries to have high-speed rail while we creep along on 19th Century railroad routes. Because these projects are intended to be privately financed, they should be encouraged by State leaders. These are the modern equivalent of the private roads, canals and railroads of the 19th Century–think Toll House Road and the privately built pikes. If they succeed, then the State and the region benefit. There will be fewer cars on I-95 than there will be without other transportation options. If these MAGLEV and Hyperloop developers go bankrupt, then someone else will be able to buy up the assets at reduced prices. Yet, politicians who don’t see the future, have no future and are not worthy of your support.
