As a former resident of MD (and one who may potentially reside there again in the not-too-distant future), I'd like to think that if one of MD's delegates advertised belief in and support of an issue (especially to the point of fostering a particular bill), one would remain true to their words, campaigned principles & commitment to the constituents who helped support them because of said beliefs/supported policies.

I'd also like to think that if I were to return to Maryland & make it my home again, that not only could I have confidence in my elected government, but that I would be treated equally as a fully viable citizen no matter what my race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, political leaning, hair color, age, body type, face shape, eye color, etc. may be.

Denying LGBT equal rights is like discriminating by face shape. Should two consenting adults w/round faces be able to marry? Of course they should! My point is, you're only focusing on the physical bits, but you're still dealing w/cognizant, consenting, mature and fully capable adults. Refusing LGBT/Q equal rights is like denying overweight people access to hospitals, the equality of people w/disabilities, denying people of different races/creeds/cultures/religions the ability to marry or women the ability to own property, live independently, etc.

All of this not withstanding however, you were elected because you purported to have certain beliefs. You took money from people who supported you because of said advertised beliefs. It seems a little odd that you would suddenly come to an impasse just now, no..? Please do the right thing and stand up for the beliefs you said you held and would uphold during your service to your constituents. You not only made commitments with words and obligated yourself by using other peoples' funds, you'd also simply be breaking faith. And isn't what this whole supposed quandary is about..? Have a little faith in what you originally purported to believe, Mr. Arora. Don't denigrate the system (or your personal integrity) further by betraying your constituents.
I used my computer one night, and last night when I got home (after a HUGELY long, arduous evening of walking through the industrial parks of Landover MD to retrieve my journal), I discovered my comp won't turn on.  It was having hard times shutting down last I used it and I manually powered it down.  Last night at first it did register power going to the CPU, but its fans, motors and such didn't turn on.  Then it just wouldn't power up at all.  I tried rebooting the pwer strip, unplugging and re-plugging the power chord, and that's a no-go, too.
..Anyone got any ideas of what could be wrong w/my compu-baby?


PS:  The thing was in storage for a good while.  Other than a little slowness it didn't seem to be having any problems though when I used it the other night.  I'm querying the GS soon.

If so, check out the specs at my Lurch community, at :):)
They're filming a z-flick in Hagerstown MD and need folks to come take part. ^_^  (Food, all-night movies and IMDB CREDITS included!!) :D:D
