Are YOU stupid? The Left think you are...

Are YOU stupid? ‘Stupid’ seems to be the word of the week.

First, President Barack Obama during a prime time press conference, called the Cambridge (Mass.) Police force of “acting stupidly” in the arrest of esteemed Harvard professor Gates. (Glad the BeerFest sorted that out but I wonder how many Buds Biden had AND he wasn’t invited).

Then, we have comedian and talk show host Bill Maher calling Americans “stupid.”

Are… Continue

Another fine example

Did I see B.O. last night on the news at a supermarket produce department saying he has not been in one of these in a long time as he bit into a piece of fruit? Well I did. Now is this the example a man of his position should project? I guess I can walk into any produce department and start eating fruit without paying for it. No, I can not, you pay for it first. Is this a good example for B.O. to give to the people of this Country? Now when someone goes into a produce department and eats a… Continue

TEA for over 2000 at the Liberty 101: Richmond Tea Party

Chesterfield County Fairground was the site for one of the growing numbers of ‘tea parties’ springing up across the nation.

Touted by organizers as a Festival of Freedom and Liberty, the event was hosted by WRVA’s own the affable Doc Thompson who told the assembled throng how his political views were formulated after reading Ayn Rand’s tome ‘Atlas Shrugged’ whilst in his twenties. Thompson then went on to introduce over ten speakers including renowned American author and essayist… Continue

Traveling Tim – Arguably Virginia’s most frequent flyer.

Congratulations to the Richmond Times-Dispatch on their FOIA request on Virginia Governor Timothy M. Kaine’s travel and expenses paid for by the taxpayers of the Commonwealth.

For those of you who do not know, Kaine holds down a number of jobs:

• Chairman of the Democratic National Committee

•… Continue

Come Out Virginia ...Part One

The legendary Billy Joel was down in Virginia Beach about this time last year and by far, the biggest roar from the jam packed stadium was to “only the good die young”.

Virginia Beach is the former home to the gubernatorial candidate for the Republican Party who represented a House of Delegates seat in the area.

Joel’s lyrics, in retrospect make interesting reading and/or listening.

“Come out Virginia, dont let me wait… Continue

Just curious

The Constitution;

If you think it's good right now,

Just wait 'til we're through!"
-Washingtonian haiku

At what point, I wonder, did America lose sight of the fact that the role of the Supreme Court is not to interpret the Constitution but to use it as a yardstick to see if laws passed by Congress, the States and localities measure up? The Constitution doesn't need interpretation. It isn't as though those crafty old Founding Fathers hid secret messages in it. When you… Continue

A Bridge Over Troubled Waters

I look back on the time when I served this Country in Vietnam and ask myself why?

The answer was to stop the spread of communism, and it was right!

I answered the call to serve this Great Nation in Iraq and Kuwait during Operation Desert Storm.

Again I asked myself why?

We will not allow a dictatorship and terrorism to spread to other countries that are friendly to the United States and possibly to our land.

Then came 9/11.

They… Continue

Thought on National Healthcare

“Compulsory social insurance [National healthcare. Ed.] is in its essence undemocratic, and it cannot remove or prevent poverty. The workers of America adhere to voluntary institutions in preference to compulsory systems, which are held to be not only impracticable, but a menace to their rights, welfare and their liberty. Compulsory sickness insurance [National healthcare. Ed.] for workers is based upon the theory that they are unable to look after their own interests and the state [or Federal… Continue

Political correctness

Author unknown, but no statement is more true!

"Political correctness is a Doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick a TURD up by the clean end!"

economics 101

I received this from a friend of mine and it should be repeated over and over again until we all wake up!!!!!!!!!!!!!


An economics professor stated he had never failed a single student

before, but had failed recently an entire class.

That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and

that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, after the Great

Equalizer completes his plans.

The professor then said,… Continue

Let citizens of this country pick someone to get to the truth with Obama’s full cooperation and put and end to this.

Do it now.
