County expresses little concern in gathering personal info

ROCKVILLE – The Montgomery County Police Department is one of three police agencies in the state using cell tower site simulators that could allow the department to intercept personal conversations, read text messages and access emails and contact data phones in its vicinity. “Governments use cellular interceptors, bad guys use interceptors, spies use cellular interceptors, foreign operatives use cellular interceptors,” said Buzz Burner, director of applications at ESD America, a defense and law enforcement technology company based in Las Vegas. “It is a methodology that allows for the interception and capture of high value information. This is not a new thing that there are cellular interceptors.”

County votes in finance reform

ROCKVILLE – Montgomery County is the first in the state of Maryland to enact a campaign financing bill. “It will reduce the impact of special interests and will have a big impact on policy because the candidates who are elected won’t be dependent on contributions from corporations or labor unions or packs because they won’t be able to accept any contributions from those groups if they’re doing public funding,” said Councilmember Phil Andrews (D-3). “That’s a big change so it’ll have an impact on policies, not just who wins.”

Ex Virginia governor helps Howard County candidate

Thursday was not a good day for the last governor of Virginia as Bob McDonnell was found guilty of corruption in a Richmond courtroom. But another former Republican governor of Virginia, George Allen, had a better day of it in Howard County, talking up the candidacy of state Senate hopeful Jody Venkatesan in District 13 and other candidates at a Clarksville ballroom. “There were a lot of folks from Maryland who helped me out” in his successful race for governor of Virginia 20 years ago, Allen told a crowd of about 50, and he was happy to return the favor. Venkatesan is running against Democratic Del. Guy Guzzone for the seat now held by retiring Democratic Sen. Jim Robey. In 2010, Venkatesan lost the Republican primary for the seat that represents much of eastern and southern Howard County, but ran unopposed in June. “In every way, Jody is running on the issues that matter...

Anyone for another latte?

Anyone for another latte?

Nice to know people are upset with our President because he walked off a helicopter with a latte in his hand and saluted his guard with the latte in the forward and upright position. Never mind we have congressmen on so-called science subcommittees who have no idea what science is – or what the definition of “is” is.

Oh yeah, just another day

So, there we were driving at a faster-than-snail-like pace on I-270 coming into work and enjoying the slow drivers in the fast lane and the faster drivers in the slow lane. A driver in the other lane had proudly painted “Obama is the anti-christ” on his car’s back window.

When the band R.E.M. sang “Don’t go back to Rockville,” they were on to something. The city of Rockville, swimming in money is also a cesspool of incompetence, aggression, petty politics and pretense. City management staff resembles a squabbling nursery school more than professional adults.
