Refuge Podcast #63 - O'Malley Fiddling While Maryland Burns (jobs at least)

Jam packed with all the conservative goodness you have come to expect it is the Conservative Refuge Podcast. You can listen by visiting here:

In our opening segment, I share a fascinating article from the Annapolis Capital pointing out how Maryland's economy compares with the national economy as a whole. As liberal tax increases take hold, Maryland is hemorraghing jobs. You need to hear these numbers!

Our blogger roundtable, with regular contributor Brian Griffiths and local attorney and potential county council candidate James Braswell, discuss the recent appointments to the Anne Arundel County Board of Education, including unregistered democratic lobbyist Teresa Birge. Is the Governor appointing board members who will support unbridled spending and push for higher taxes? Were more qualified candidates rejected because they lack the necessary political connections with O'Malley? Our blogger contributors offer their insights and opinions.

In our closing segment, we open the Fat Files and I share a report that Asian obesity rates are on the rise. The article highlights the absurdity of the obesity alarmists as they romanticized the life of hardscrabble Asian peasants and objecting to the "malling" of Asia.

Share your thoughts and feedback!

Spread the word!

McCain visits old Kline law school haunt

Sen. John McCain today, in an effort to play off Barrack Hussein Obama's campaign stop in Germany, went to a local German restaurant in Columbus, Ohio.

It is a sad commentary that McCain's campaign has largely been reactive to Obama. No doubt this is in large part due to the mainstream media's coverage of all things Obam but one might hope that McCain thought more of himself if not our party to think that the only way he can win is if the election is a referendum on Obama.

More importantly, though, Schmidt's Sausage Haus is located across the street from where I went to law school. (Now they have a beautiful new building downtown paid with my tuition. Your Welcome! But I digress.)

The food is great and there is a very affordable lunch buffet but in the words of Crow T. Robot "German food is so heavy."

A Little Lutheran Pride

For the close followers of the Conservative Refuge you know that I am a proud Lutheran. Here is a fun video paying homage to some of my fellow Lutherans, a la Adam Sandler's Hanukkah Song, by Lost and Found.
