#2 If the measure is approved, it would mean the Democratic-dominated council..

And there in lies the key feature about power. The issue at hand is what is the 'threshold' to exercise the power. As much as everyone talks about the balance of executive-legislative-judicial powers in the national government, a clear reading of the Constitution shows that with 2/3rd control of both the House and Senate, a single minded party can impeach judges and presidents and send a flurry of amendments to the states or call for a convention thereof.

Traditionally, that kind of behavior has been kept in check by cultural tradition, but as noted in these pages, one political philosophy has been pushing to alter the culture and pushing damn hard at grasping, expanding, and imposing that power which has worn that threshold to a very thin margin.

#3 Yes, Maryland has had years of political inbreeding. First symptoms to be observed are a compulsive disorder to vote Democrat and join welfare programs.Even if it means lower standard of living. Willful neglect.

#4 But when the next Donk mayor is elected, the rules will be changed to give the mayor more power. Scurrilous ba$tards!

#5 Err, isn't that defying the power of the people? I know if I were an Anapolis citizen, even a Democrat one, I would be hopping mad about it and would require the impecahment for any Councelor who voted for this.

That's very hard to do, JFM. You have to get up off of your butt, walk away from the television and go talk to your neighbors. That is very, very hard.

#7 ...per Fox News, Mr. Arnett has now backpedaled and there shall be no amendment proposed...but I'm sure he, and those of like mind, are still entertaining the idea...

#8 Just a shot across the bow, so to speak, you know to keep the interloper in line.
