Baltimore Facts and some good figures
« on: May 18, 2015, 02:38:35 PM »
A good compendium of Baltimore Facts and some really good info on education spending from Newt Gingrich.

I was not aware of some of these.  Some highlights:

Quote
Fact: The last Republican city council member in Baltimore City left office in 1942. That is 73 years of solid Democrat city councils.

Fact: The last Republican mayor of Baltimore City left office in 1967. That is 48 years of unbroken Democrat control of the mayor’s office.


Fact: The Maryland Senate is currently 33 Democrats to 14 Republicans.

Fact: The Maryland House is currently 90 Democrats to 50 Republicans.

Fact: The last time Republicans held both the Maryland Senate and the Maryland House of Delegates was 1897.

Fact: The last time Republicans held even one chamber of the Maryland General Assembly—the House—was 1917. That is unbroken Democrat control of the Maryland legislature since 1918, or nearly a century of Democrat control.

Fact: Seven out of eight members of the Maryland delegation in the U.S. House are Democrats.

Fact: The last Republican U.S. senator from Maryland was elected in 1980.

Education Spending:

Quote
Fact: Baltimore City spends $15,483 per student, and its unionized, bureaucratic schools fail.

As Archbishop of Baltimore William Lori points out, the Catholic schools cost $6,000 a year and have a 99 percent graduation rate.

Thanks Mom, for insisting we go to Catholic Grade School.  Thanks Dad, for all those extra weekends with the Navy, to afford it.

......well, you were doing what you really loved to do and it got you out and away from us!   :-)

So, what you are saying is that it's all Bush's fault  ?
I guess that's implied.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.
