I've returned home and I've had some time to consider the events of the past 48 hours. As I've already reported
, the GOP ticket in Virginia consists of Bob McDonnell, Bill Bolling, and Ken Cuccinelli. I will join with my fellow Republicans in working to get them elected to office for they have much to do and many good ideas. Virginia needs them.…

As I sit here in my hotel room taking care of the little details on-line that need my attention I noticed that it’s now less than 12 hours to the start of tomorrow’s session of the RPV Convention. We have some important decisions to make. One of the more contentious will be who the RPV sends to the November general elections as their nominee for the Attorney General. I pause this evening to make a final attempt to persuade my fellow delegates that John Brownlee is the man we should… Continue

I will be a first time delegate at the state convention. I got involved because I do believe that everyone can make a difference regardless of status and/or position. I also believe that the GOP has alot to offer the common man, not just the country club crowd, as the media and magority of people see it. I am a home healh nurse and I talk the alot of people from varying socioeconomic classes, but with an emphasis on the middle and lower classes - alot of Democrats. I hear their problems and… Continue

I didn't move here 10 years ago , from a Philadelphia suburb with the hope and dream of being "liked" by a new "Liberal" neighbor .... We chose Virginia because (at the time) most of the people living and voting here believed in what we (still) do .. I don't want to "go-along-to-get-along" ; I want to win ... period ! ....Far too many "good-ol'-boys" ( e.g. Specter, Powell , Hagar ) pay only lip service to their grassroots Conservative friends .... Once safely elected , the real issue seems to… Continue

A little something to remember!
On this very special day,
Near the end of each May,
When we gather together,
Our thanks to untether,
For those who gave all,
That we may stand tall,
In their honor I say,
Do your best everyday,
To cherish and to keep,
Safe our liberty and mores,
That their loved ones weep,
In vain nevermore!

WLS radio host Erich "Mancow" Muller recently underwent waterboarding. His response after being strapped to the board and enduring the procedure was this:
"It is such an odd feeling to have water poured down your nose with your head back...It was instantaneous...and I don't want to say this: absolutely torture."
He held out for 6 or 7 seconds before he threw up his little rubber toy cow indicating distress. Christopher… Continue

One Speaker Resigns – Another Should Follow.
For the first time in over three centuries the Speaker of the House of Commons in the Palace of Westminster, the Mother of all Parliaments has resigned. Good, but too little too late for myriad reasons. Whilst he is a personable chap, fellow Glaswegian Great Britain’s Michael Martin outstayed his welcome as Speaker finally bowed to pressure over the Members of Parliament expenses controversy and rightly so.
At least Mr. Martin… Continue
