Sam Hale answers a few questions:
AB: Why do you consider yourself a tea party candidate?
Sam Hale: “I consider myself a tea party candidate because I have founded and run my own tea party group. I feel like I can legitimately say to tea party activists that “I am one of them,” and I am proud to.”
AB: What must the tea party do in order to make the MDGOP a viable party in Maryland?
Sam Hale: “In order to make the GOP a viable party again the Tea Party must take an active role in leveling the playing field between Democrats and Republicans. Nothing would be more effective at doing this than the grassroots activism provided by the tea party. In order to do this, however, the GOP must send a more conservative message. The Tea Party can’t, and won’t support a left-leaning party. The Tea Party can make the GOP viable again but it is up to the GOP to send the right message to inspire them. Hopefully electing “one of their own” to the chair position will send that message. “

The recent public ire toward the TSA’s new pat-down and body imaging screening methods is likely to cause more people to drive automobiles and forego airline travel, say two transportation economists who have studied the issue.
As the nation readies for one of the busiest traveling holidays, Steven Horwitz, a professor of economics at St. Lawrence University, told The Hill that the probable spike in road travel, caused by adverse feelings towards the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) new screening procedures, could also lead to more car-related deaths.
“Driving is much more dangerous than flying, as you are far more likely to be killed in an automobile accident mile-for-mile than you are in an airplane,” said Horwitz. “The result will be that the new TSA procedures will kill more Americans on the highway.”
How many terrorists has the TSA stopped with its groping and scanning? Answer: zero.
I remember a cross being at the bridge near where he was shot and killed and I have noticed it is no longer there but further down they have a Eddie Plank/ Eric Monk sign in front of the MSP Barrack. Is the cross no longer put at the location and been replaced with the sign?
