Electricity Re-regulation -- Will O'Malley Keep His Promises?

In a new series, The Baltimore Spectator will take a close look at energy re-regulation and BGE/Constellation energy. Keep checking back because this one's sure to be hot and controversial.

After 10 years and an 85% increase in utility rates, the move towards re-regulation of the out of control BGE Maryland energy provider seems to be gaining steam. Governor O'Malley seems to actually remember one of his major campaign promises that had been largely ignored by him up until this point.

It should also be pointed out that O'Malley now pushing for re-regulation has only come about after a group of legislators including Baltimore's own Delegate Pat McDonough and Delegate Jill P. Carter have sponsored legislation do just that. Showing lack of leadership, it appears Governor O'Malley may actually be attempting to follow the will of the people, but of course, not before taking full credit and getting all the press for something others have been working on for weeks now.

A growing number of citizens, make that voters, have signed up and joined an online FaceBook group supporting energy re-regulation in Maryland. Besides regular taxpayers, the group even includes a judge and a General Assembly Member.

Although this is an editorial piece, in fairness to Governor O'Malley, I'd like to let him, in his own words, tell you what his plans are. See for your self why I say he's a fraudulent sham, a few years late, and billions of rate payer dollars short. Watch the video below from his campaign.

Also, Baltimore's ever shrinking, alternative daily has a good story from the Governor's press conference/media photo-op/mass distraction.

To all those who willfully, deliberately and routinely violate the civil rights of law abiding American Citizens; Yes, you're powerful. Sure, you're everywhere. But this is still America, and the Constitution of the United States Of America still reigns supreme as the law of the land. The Baltimore Spectator will vigorously and aggressively defend against any and all attempts at spying and suppression. Let it be known to all that we are already aware of the regular monitoring and shadowing attempts. There is nothing to hide, but cross the line and there will be hell to pay.

In the end, efforts to impinge upon the freedoms of the people will ultimately fail. Some of us may get taken out in the ongoing battle for true and lasting freedom, but as I've said many times before, and will say till the day I die or get taken out by you goons, THERE ARE MORE OF US, THAN THERE ARE OF YOU.
