    A conversation about how much you drink might be part of your next doctor’s visit. The United States Preventative Services Task Force is advising that all adults, not just pregnant women, be screened for unhealthy alcohol use by their primary care providers, CNN reports. Doctors should provide brief counseling to patients they find are drinking above the recommended limits, according to a new statement published in the medical journal JAMA on Tuesday (Nov. 13). In an editorial accompanying the statement, Angela Bazzi and Dr. Richard Saitz of the Boston University School of Public Health wrote that implementation of screening and...

    The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled that the need for the Second Amendment is “most acute” in the home, where “self, family and property” must be protected. But now Maryland gun regulators are insisting that anyone who wants to defend his home with a firearm must have a month of special training. A group called Maryland Shall Issue Inc. has filed a lawsuit contending the training requirement violates the Second Amendment. Arguing a “right delayed is a right denied,” Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation and chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear...

    Energy Secretary Rick Perry on Thursday christened the first natural gas export terminal on the East Coast, at the Cove Point facility in Maryland outside of Washington. “We can become a reliable competitive alternative anywhere in the world, and we will,” Perry said in remarks opening the second natural gas export terminal in the country. Energy exports are key to Trump’s “energy dominance” agenda, and Perry said the president fully supports the new terminal. “This president understands the power of energy and he is eager to unleash our bounty to the world, which is why he is so supportive of...

    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) on Thursday proposed a $9 billion plan to widen three of the state’s most congested highways — the Capital Beltway, Interstate 270 and the Baltimore-Washington Parkway — in what he said would include the largest public-private partnership for highways in North America. The projects would add four toll lanes each to Maryland’s portion of the Capital Beltway (I-495) and to I-270 from the Beltway to Frederick. It would also widen the Baltimore-Washington Parkway (MD 295) by four toll lanes after taking over ownership from the federal government. Because of private-sector involvement, Hogan said, the plan would...

    Maryland Governor Larry Hogan did not mince words when he discussed how he felt about the Rockville, Maryland rape case where a 14-year-old girl was raped by two classmates, one of whom is confirmed to be an illegal alien (i.e. illegal immigrant). The county school system in question, Montgomery County Public Schools, had issued a letter condemning the rape in which the school superintendent made a public statement on the tragedy. Nevertheless, Governor Hogan said that the school system is not cooperating fully with the governor's office and the state's education agency. Hogan said the following: "Why is an 18-year-old...

    Helen Delich Bentley, the colorful and cantankerous former Maryland congresswoman whose fierce advocacy for the port of Baltimore led to its being named in her honor, died Saturday. Mrs. Bentley, who was 92, died at her home in Timonium, said longtime aide Key Kidder. She had brain cancer. She had a long and varied career that took her from The Baltimore Sun newsroom to the Federal Maritime Commission to the U.S. House of Representatives. She ran for governor in 1994 but lost in the Republican primary. "Congresswoman Bentley worked with tenacity, energy, and passion on behalf of her constituents, making...

    There was a recent domestic shooting in Maryland.  The presumed perpetrator was a federal law enforcement officer.  He is reported to have killed his estranged wife and two other people.   His wife had a protective order against him in March, and the Federal Protective Service, of which Mr. Tordil was a member, took his service firearm and seven other firearms.This was in Maryland, which requires handguns to be registered. From the washingtonpost.com: Sheriff’s deputies can’t be faulted for not knowing about that gun because, thanks to the national gun lobby and the cowardice of Congress, there is no...

    Uh oh. So NOBODY cares. Bad news, outrage peddlers. We’ve known for some time that nobody really cares about your efforts to make America clamor for the end of the racist monstrosity known as the “Washington Redskins.” It’s been a non-issue for most people since day one. However, if you hate that ugly football team, things just took a turn for the worse. Not only is the majority ambivalent, but a new Washington Post poll has been released and, according to the data, Social Justice Warriors have failed to convince Native Americans that they should care either.

    There wasn’t any mystery about how Tuesday night’s five Republican presidential primaries would end up: in Donald Trump’s win column. The only thing to watch were his margins: Could he close out against John Kasich in certain highly educated, suburban congressional districts in Connecticut and Maryland, and could he break a 50 percent statewide winner-take-all threshold in Connecticut? Yes, he could! He could do all of that, and he did. He won every state by double digits and cruised in every congressional district awarding bound delegates. He made a joke of his competition and the #NeverTrump cause, just as he...
