A Time for Political Haste, Not Patience!

I can certainly understand the prudence of a careful and patient approach, but in what we're facing as a nation, I don't think we have enough time left for patience, and I believe the only thing we need to be careful about is preserving the original intent of the Constitution. What we need across this state and country is a strong and intense SENSE OF URGENCY - a HASTE somewhat exemplified by our new leadership in Montgomery,…

OMNIBUS bill

I awoke to a good morning, except for a head cold and sore throat.   The OMNIBUS bill that was laden down with ear marks was defeated or withdrawn by Harry Reid after great opposition by the Republicans and some Democrats!   And the Bush Tax Cuts Bill was extended!   WE WON on these two.   Thanks so much for your calls to the Republican leader John Boehner and others.   The Republicans insisted on reading the entire bill of 2,200 pages on the House floor.   Please call and thank your…

Tenth Amendment Committee: What Would Jefferson Do? "WWJD"

The 10th Amendment codifies in law that We the People of the several states created the federal government to be our agent for certain enumerated, or listed, powers – and nothing more.

The essential question of our day, though, is this – when the federal government violates these limits,what do we do about it? Remember the words of Thomas Jefferson who reminds us that the States are“the most competent administrations for our domestic concerns…

Harry Reid launched another attack on your property rights.

As expected, Reid launched another attack on your property rights with a 1924-page $1.2 trillion spending bill that includes 327 pages of omnibus government lands bill crammed with more than 120 separate measures to lock up vast swaths of wilderness areas.

You may recall that in 2008, the EPA, sanctioned by Washington, redirected water away from the most furtile farmland in the nation under the guise of saving…

Nine questions about wikileaks.

Number 1: Do the American People deserve know the truth regarding the ongoing wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen?



Number 2: Could a larger question be how can an army private access so much secret information?



Number 3: Why is the hostility directed at Assange, the publisher, and not at our governments failure to protect classified information?



Number 4: Are we getting our moneys worth of the 80 Billion dollars per year spent on intelligence…

VA C4L named the bill "the Virginia Healthcare Freedom Act," and Delegate Bob Marshall's HB10 gave Virginia the standing necessary for our Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's court challenge to the mandate.…

ANALYSIS OF POTENTIAL IMPACT OF SCOTT BEASON'S SUBSTITUTE BILL from a very well known political lawyer

From a very well known political lawyer:



ANALYSIS OF POTENTIAL IMPACT OF SCOTT BEASON'S SUBSTITUTE BILL



Under current law, a "person" is a lobbyist once he, she or it spends $100 on a thing of value to lobby. A "person" is an individual but is also everything else such as a corporation, association, university, or any other organization. So the $100 limit applies to a trade association as well as its registered lobbyist. Beason's Substitute does nothing to…

Who's Money?

Bernie Sanders filibusters the “tax bill compromise” because the deal allows the same rates to remain in effect for two years. He asked the question, “when is enough, enough?” He is talking about Americans—Americans who have been successful and earned more money than average folk… he is posing the issue as one in which the government is entitled to confiscate income because the earners can afford the hit and the government needs the money instead. It seems funding NPR is important enough to…

The Key to American Exceptionalism

By: Dr. Jeffrey "Jake" Baker

I'm an American. I still believe in American exceptionalism, but perhaps now more than ever, I have come to understand that exceptionalism is not a result of merit ... but grace. I came to that conclusion after honestly asking myself: Are we smarter than the…
