Help getting unvaccinated kids in Catholic school

Anyone know a good way of approaching this? I have been in touch with cogforlife.org and contacted the Archdiocese. The Arch's response was that without a medical exemption, my kids cannot attend, but the state allows for religious exemption. I am contacting the Bishop's office directly. I haven't contacted the school directly, think maybe they'd except the exemption? They just have to meet the state's guidelines if the Dept. of Health does a check...

Any advise/thoughts would be helpful. Thanks.

Maryland Governor O'Malley To Commute All Death Row Sentences

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) _ Outgoing Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley said Wednesday that he will commute the capital sentences of the state’s last four inmates on death row to life in prison, saying executing them “does not serve the public good of the people of Maryland.”

Two years ago, the General Assembly abolished the death penalty in the state, making the ultimate sentence in new cases life in prison without the possibility of parole.

That left four previously sentenced inmates on death row.

James Bamford, THE Man who first truly exposed the No Such Agency to the Masses @ The Intercept: The NSA and Me - Oct 2, 2014


The NSA and Me

By James Bamford
02 Oct 2014

The tone of the answering machine message was routine, like a reminder for a dental appointment. But there was also an undercurrent of urgency. “Please call me back,” the voice said. “It’s important.”

Appointments the Democrat Central Committee may be available

The Democrats do what is called gender-balancing to try to have an equal number of male/ female members, on a county-by-county basis. Interested Democrats should contract their local central committees immediately. The odds or chances of being appointed depend upon the number of people who present themselves. The Party needs strong, liberty-loving people to make sure Maryland is being properly served. This may not be particular to Maryland.

Judge responds to "Sovereign Citizen" argument - with cattle prod

Okay, it wasn't a cattle prod. They call it a "stun belt." Same effect. If the judge doesn't like what you're saying, he orders the sheriff to "Use it."

(DEFENDANT SCREAMS.)

The judge found the defendant's "Sovereign Citizen" arguments really, really, REALLY annoying. So he decided to torture him?

Here's the full story.

GoFundMe page for Sam Potato

If posting this here is somehow inappropriate, let me know, but I have some friends in Maryland with a sick cat that needed to have one of this front legs amputated earlier this month. The cat's name is Sam Potato, and apparently cancer was the reason for his leg being amputated.

Gun control hurts more than gun owners

Anti-Gun legislation in Maryland hurts more than gun owners. It interferes with free trade principles on both national and international levels, and negatively affects the families of the companies involved.

The All Powerful State !

So my boys and I decided to enjoy some tent camping this weekend at Greenbrier State Park in Western Murrland. (MD) This particular park has a large beach area on the lake for swimmers and sun worshipers. Upon arriving at the beach site with boys, surprised by the demographics on the beach goers. Approx. 60% Hispanic, 25% African-American, 15% Caucasian (but I digress) Every 15 minutes or so , a pre-recorded message was played over the PA system advising the park patrons of issues and situations at the park. The PA system had to be turned up to ELEVEN !
