Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Browsing Posts published in October, 2009

Finally home after two weeks on the road. Blog seems to be working again, though the admin interface is a little clunky. Can’t find “categories” for instance but who really cares about categories at the end of the day, right?

Unfortunately I have nothing to inform or instruct you about, as the purpose of my travel would have very little interest for you – this I can assure you. So it will take some time to get versed on what is going on around here. I know on Tuesday I will be out at 0-dark:30 to set up one of the local polling places.

Here is an exercise: The past two weeks I was in two very different places, represented by the photos below. Can anyone identify a) the two towns, and b) the two sites depicted? First person to get all four correct wins a free sundae, glass of wine, or body shot, depending on your preference.

The unions are coming at Virginia hard, with considerable contributions to Democrats. The tip of the iceberg :

American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees : $2,009,959

Service Employees International Union : $432,929

Laborers Mid Atlantic Regional Organizing Coalition : $321,000

Communication Workers of America COPE : $207,376

Your vote to keep the unions out of Virginia : PRICELESS

We have had nine months to witness the impact of the unions upon national policy, and it is painfully obvious that this is not we want for our future here in Virginia.

We all have heard the very outspoken Stevens Miller discussing his limited qualifications for state office. In September of 2007 he summed it up rather succinctly :

“No one should run for office if they don’t have experience in county affairs”

At the time Miller was running for the Board of Supervisors. Two years later, Miller is now running for delegate and the topic has changed to state level affairs. Does he have any experience in state level business ? As it is nowhere to be found on his limited resume, the reasonable answer to this question is “no”.

By his own words, he has no business running for state delegate.

Darth 0bama is altering the bargain. Pray he does not alter it again.

Like Vader with Lando Calrissian, 0bama alters deals at a whim. Will Congress hold him accountable for this egregious usurpation of power? Of course not. According to Congress, any government power is good — after 0bama takes to power to himself, they will merely take it for themselves. But any alteration of the deal after the bailout money was given and accepted is and ex post facto law, and unconstitutional. But neither 0bama nor our Congresscritters care about the Constitution, either.

Justice ?

Fresh from letting the Black Panther Party walk on charges of voter intimidation, now the Department of Injustice comes up with this :

Justice concludes black voters need Democratic Party
U.S. blocks N.C. city’s nonpartisan vote

KINSTON, N.C. | Voters in this small city decided overwhelmingly last year to do away with the party affiliation of candidates in local elections, but the Obama administration recently overruled the electorate and decided that equal rights for black voters cannot be achieved without the Democratic Party.

The Justice Department’s ruling, which affects races for City Council and mayor, went so far as to say partisan elections are needed so that black voters can elect their “candidates of choice” – identified by the department as those who are Democrats and almost exclusively black.

The Washington Times

Not quite sure what message the Obama administration is trying to convey here. The folks in Kinston don’t know how to manage and conduct their local elections ? Black voters in Kinston are incapable of independently learning the ideology of candidates on the ballot ? Black voters must be told which candidate to vote for by flagging them as Democrat ?

Or simply, the will of the people of Kinston doesn’t mean squat ?

Did CBS just switch off the Redskins game or am I missing something?
