Should General Assembly approve a bi-furcated tax rate in 2009?

There are three things we must do....live, die and pay taxes.

In 2009, legislation will be introduced for consideration of a bi-furcated tax rate. If passed, the BoCS will have to vote to implement it, but the jury is out on whether this is a good or bad idea.

The intent behind this effort is to assure that Prince William will remain competitive in attracting businesses. For local government this is may be their best hope for creating additional revenue.

Have the Democrats Maxed Out in Virginia?
Maybe so, but wishful thinking won't stem the blue creep.

On Red States and Blue States

By the way, who decreed that the good guys were the "red" states anyway? Years ago, election maps sometimes used blue for Republican states and sometimes red, with the decision being pretty much up to the mapmaker. Assigning a fixed color to each party seems to be a fairly recent invention in the last 10 years or so.

It's now become so ingrained in the pop culture and pundit-speak, that we're probably inalterably stuck with it.

What a pity.

As a baby boomer… Continue

Stop Dangerous ID (the so-called Real ID scam)

Dear Patriots.

In 2005 the United States Congress passed the Real ID Act, renamed Dangerous ID by Virginia activists. According to the legislation, your state issued driver's license will be turned into a national ID card and will be required for access to many functions of society and will reveal your name, birth date, sex, ID number, and a digital photograph of you, at a minimum. In response to unprecedented resistance from the states, the Department of Homeland Security's deadline… Continue

What Barack Obama Doesn't Get

In a campaign appearance that Senator Barak Obama made on October 31 in Sarasota Florida he said the following.

“The point is, though, that — and it’s not just charity, it’s not just that I want to help the middle class and working people who are trying to get in the middle class — it’s that when we actually make sure that everybody’s got a shot – when young people can all go to college, when everybody’s got decent health care, when everybody’s got a little more money at the end of… Continue

A Cure for the GOP

To All,

It has been my great honor and privelege to be a member of the Prince William County Republican Committee and to work with the 2008 McCain and RNC Victory campaigns these last few months. I have had the distinct pleasure of conversing and emailing with many people, sharing points of view and concerns. In the course of exercising my duties and volunteering for the two campaigns, I got a very close look at the inner workings of the party from the grassroots all the way to the… Continue

Rain and Long Lines

This is a blog I posted on my Myspace/Facebook/Livejournal on election day. It's not meant to be up to date exactly.

Today was my first real experience in our "democracy." I don't know how to veiw my actions or the circumstances surrounding them. There was no marching band playing as I colored in those circles, there were no fireworks as I slipped that paper into the box. Nothing. I would love to pretend that my first experience was this magical, almost beautiful phemomena. Yet… Continue
