Everything that God made, He made a little better in Maryland.
The beaches, the rivers, the fields and the mountains, but mostly the people. Everything that
man made, Democrats have made a little less, if not a lot less, in our once-Free State. In fact,
the state has been hollowed out economically, except for the Federal Government largesse
spilling out of the District of Columbia.
Light and heavy industry are gone and have not been replaced in Western Maryland.
Baltimore has enough abandoned row houses to solve the nation’s homeless problem. The
murder rate is so high in forever Democrat Party controlled Charm City that it is now called
Harm City. Maryland’s lax enforcement of its laws attracts wage-depressing illegal
immigration, while our tax policy repels job-creating businesses. Marriott had to be bribed to
stay in Bethesda. The rest of us get to pay the piper.
My children are smarter than their father. They left and will never return. They refuse to
surrender their money, liberty and dignity to the ultra left wing liberals in Montgomery County
who have overtaxed our purchases and the bags they come in. My family came to Maryland on
the Ark and the Dove in 1632 and we’re leaving on trucks from Town & Country movers in
It’s been a good run. Some people have asked, why would you move to chaotic and comical
New Orleans? The answer is, we prefer chaos to communism. I leave behind a lot of friends
who I hope to still see when I come back to visit clients and family.
I also leave behind some advice that will probably go unheeded.
Governor Larry Hogan is the 2nd smartest politician in America. He is making one mistake by
criticizing the smartest politician, Donald Trump. Tell my governor that Cave recommends,
“He needs to run for office as if Donald Trump is the man who never was.”
Hogan will find no profit in criticizing Trump, but the loss of his supporters will add his name
to the sad list of one-term Maryland Republican governors. The election results in 2018 will be
determined by voter turnout. The Democrats will turn out the vote in this existential midterm
