How the hell a multi-million or billiob $ company can miss billion or million is lost or misreprted revenue is criminal. They know exactly what they are doing. Thewir criminal thinking and technology is so far ahea of the retared govenment, that they will never get caught.,
In the meantime, they keep ALL the profits and taxpayers pay for aLL the bailout.
Keep voting Republican, you damned fools.
Most of the company IS Repulican.

I also am amused by people who complain about taxes.
I pay twice the property tax here that I did there (Though income tax *is* about 25% less), but I have a brand new $75m community center with lap pools, a recreation pool with water slides, a diving pool, gymnasiums, running track, rock climbing wall, and excercise area that wuld put the DAC to shame and I get to use it all free any time I want because of those taxes (indoor, all year round). Plus the local schools spend twice per student what even the best school districts did back there, three times more than most. Quadruple what Baltimore City spends. Our roads are not busted. We have parks. We're not closing fire stations. Teachers and Police get paid 40% more on average.
I guess if you are constanly bent over the table by your local politicians at the behest of big business, those extra few bucks in taxes means something.
But when you live somewhere where your tax payments are actually turned into something real and tangible, you don't mind so much.
How's that I-95 exchange in White Marsh coming?
Ohio has some of the friendliest people I've ever met. The weather's better in Baltimore, though.

Only silly Republcian with no economic background or education think that free-market capitalism works in all cases. There has to be some regulation and law controlling markets or people will be exploited and abused.

Learn history before spouting ignorance, GOP. You eat too much foot every day.
Come on King _ong Head. You know as well as I do that the Dumbacrats with their dirty Donkey have been leaving this state in fiscal Shambles. Do I need to point to Thorton???? That the majority of annapolis dems have passed this bill that still is not funded. So lets talk about irresponsible Tax and Spend democrats in the state of Maryland who would be absolutely hosed if they lost all of the government jobs and people that live in this state that have those jobs.

Lets face it I have no problem crossing party lines for Reagan Democrats like william donald schaffer, village idoits like miller,busch, O'liar, zirkin. Come on dude pull your head out of the sand...

Don't hate the Player. Hate the Game that your party is pulling over your eyes.. Remember Liberal Dumbacrats out number republicans 2.5 to 1 in this state. Stats don't lie. Just Martin!!!

I'm sure the Exodus out of Ohio due to the drastically shrinking manufacturing base has nothing to do with the cheap ammenities. Be sure to turn the lights off if you are the last one to leave the state!

This is a very - very good news. I was hoping for a 26 % drop yesterday - Massive layoffs at Constellation Energy are just around the corner.
Yes, it would be excellent if Baltimore's leading corporation (and one of the only ones in the area still growing) had "mass layoffs." You're an idiot.

You're adorable. Are you available for adoption?

There are these things called maps. You should look at one. Ohio is pretty big.

Columbus has grown by 30% in the last four years. Cincinatti by 15%. Only Cleveland and surrounding areas are in decline. Like any other city built on Manufacturing and refusing to adapt. Detroit, for example. Pittsburgh had a rough time before moving into banking and technology.

By your logic, the economic situation in Western Maryland should be an indicator of the general state of economics in Baltimore. It *is* the same state after all. So, then everyone in Baltimore is a toothless redneck who works for the one remaining textile plant?

Unfortunately I am not available - the line is long for a cute white child like me.

Perhaps I generalized when I should have had all the facts. Good to hear you are not in the crumbling rust belt. I do meet a lot of transplants in Baltimore and surprisingly many of them are from places like Cleveland and Pittsburgh. I didn't know Cincinatti was such a hot spot. I thought it was in decline since Les Nessman stopped doing the news on WKRP.

It couldn't happen to a nicer company. I hope this pissbag of a utility folds. Bring back regulation.

There was a rough period while Jerry Springer was mayor, but they rebounded.

Columbus is largely white collar tech. If you work in IT, you can pretty much write your own ticket. It never relied on manufacturing so when that dried up, it never really affected this place.
