Thoughts on my own healthcare proposal

I have heard so much about healthcare reform. I would like to know if there is a truly conservative option that we could get behind. I have decided to put my own ideas down and would like for others to chime in, add, show me where I'm wrong and, hopefully, someone smarter than me will make a legitimate proposal that is NOT just a Republican sponsored idea for "One Size Fits All Government Control of Healthcare".My Healthcare reform.Part 1.

Playing Golf and Talking Politics

My friends in the great state of Virginia.



I am very happy to announce that having moved here from New England last year, my wife and I have turned down an opportunity to move back home in favor of accepting this as home. We have come to an agreement on a house in Chesterfield County and should be moving in at the end of May. We have appreciated the warmth of the people here and are looking forward to making new aquaintances and new friends.



As a Reagan Republican I have… Continue

Chesterfield County Public Schools

As a disclaimer I must say that I work for Diligent Delivery Systems and it is my job to show companies how I can save them money by outsourcing their logistics.



I recently contacted the Chesterfield County Administrator to speak with his office about ways to save money while improving county services. I had done some homework and found that I could save the county anywhere from $30k to $60k a year by outsourcing their materials transportation. The county currently uses several vans… Continue

Watch out.... Sheep Burp

I saw a troubling story this morning on Fox news. Apparently the burping of sheep is contributing to global warming gasses.



This is not a new assertion though it was a little bit troubling to see it on Fox news. The question is where are they going with this. I urge everyone to remember that everything starts out small. Ten to fifteen years ago no one would have considered gay marriage and now you are evil if you are against it. Now conservatives are looking at Civil Unions as a fall… Continue

Change we could count on

Barack Obama campaigned on "Change we could count on". In looking at his appointments one can see how he wanted to get away from the status quo in Washington by bringing in new blood free of the scandals of past administrations.



1. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - No rehashing of past administrations here. I'm sure there aren't any scandals in her past either. Last I heard she wasn't even being questioned on whitewater or on her $1000 to $100,000 commodoties investment. Don't… Continue

Hey Mark !
Welcome to Chesterfield County ! I am looking forward to meeting you in my travels. I hope by now that you have been directed to our website. My family and I are conservative capitalists who believe in the free market enterprise and excited that you are on board. Please let me know if we can further assist you in Chesterfield. I have been in the building industry for the past 20 years in our metropolis and would be more than happy to show you around.

Welcome !!!!

Mark- You need to go back into your article The Stimulus Plan and edit it to delete the second posting of your article. If you reread it, you will see what I mean. Terrific post BTW.

Hi Mark- Thanks for your messages. It is fun banter isn't it. I am absolutely aware that smoking is not the wisest and best choice to make, I've done it for so long, I can't stop being dumb. But it is my "Individual Liberty" to be dumb. Have a great day, and keep on posting, I enjoy reading your perspectives. Did you ever download the smiley face site SweetIM?



That one is my favorite, and, I have had some good occasions to use it at Redstate.

Hello Mark,

Did you get a chance to show the Andrew Cuomo video to your in-laws while your were in Maine for Christmas? I have been waiting to ask you that.

Hi, Mark, I am not real familiar with the Picken's Plan but I did create a Group to share ideas and thoughts for Virginia's Energy Independence. Hopefully Tom and OP approve and we can join and discuss ;-)

Welcome aboard, Mark! Thanks for joining the fight to win back, Virginia. Look over the site and then get engaged. The Red Dog Express stops all over the state to pick up folks like you and all of your friends and leave a wave of red behind.
