Startling Facts: 4 out of 5 dentists surveyed recommend sugarless gum to their patients who chew gum. That means 80% of those polled are involved in a conspiracy to put sugar producers out of business. I bet 60% of those dentists are from outside of Maryland and we should not allow out of state dentists to decide for us how best to decay our teeth. Plus, with the Governor's new tax and tax plan, working people will have less money to spend on granulated and confectioner's sugar. This is outrageous!!

Startling fact: 4 out of 5 voters are tired of disbarred lawyers flapping their gums just to hear themselves talk.

The above posting is not from me. We are really drawing blood by highlighting that 86% of Donna Edwards contributors are from out of state and that she serves special, not public, interests by not condemning SEIU's unprecedented slimy expenditure.

We'll see whose blood is spilled next Wednesday.
