Steve Keen: Your Tax-And-Spend Independent

27 March 2007 | Prince William County | 2 Comments

Steve Keen doesn’t want to raise your taxes. Steve Keen wants to dramatically increase government spending.  You’d think that someone making such contradictory statements might get questioned a little more closely by a reporter when trying to pull something so inane, but this is the Manassas Journal-Messenger after all.  Why they bother having reporters […]

Trenum Prevails

27 March 2007 | Prince William County | 6 Comments

Candidates for the Prince William County School Board received endorsements from the PWCRC last evening, giving committee members an opportunity to express some of their frustration with the recent budget process and the way the School Board negotiated with the Board of County Supervisors.  What should have been a formality turned into somewhat of a […]

Jim Webb Staffer Arrested

26 March 2007 | US Senate | 12 Comments

I guess our junior Senator from Virginia is pro-second amendment and favors the repeal of DC’s gun ban. Otherwise his staffers wouldn’t be carrying his loaded handgun into the Russell Senate Office Building, would they?
You’d think after serving in the military, he would have learned that you always maintain positive control over your weapons. […]

New Virginia Blogger

26 March 2007 | 28th VA Senate | 6 Comments

Joe Graziano, candidate for the Republican nomination in the 28th Senate District, has unveiled his new campaign website. On blogger. That’s right, instead of actually mounting a campaign he’s joined the Virginia blogosphere with a strange site where he blogs in the third person while posting press releases under his own name. […]

Kaine Gets On The Bonding Bus

26 March 2007 | Virginia Politics | Comments Off

Governor “Gridlock” Kaine has announced some of the changes he is proposing to the compromise transportation plan on his website, and while there’s not enough detail posted yet to really figure out what his proposed changes are, there’s one that really seems to be a stunning turnabout for him. After complaining that issuing debt […]

Municipal Revenue Forecast Update

26 March 2007 | Local Economy | 13 Comments

Recent major stories of difficulties in the sub-prime mortgage market and the impact that the local residential market is having on the immigrant community have validated to some degree my earlier reporting and projections of the local economy. Now that there’s new local data coming in, it’s time to update these projections. Unfortunately […]

Kaine To Kill HB3202 Today?

26 March 2007 | Virginia Politics | 1 Comment

Governor “Gridlock” Kaine will announce his proposed changes to the compromise transportation plan this afternoon, and while there’s been a lot of rhetoric from him about not wanting to scuttle the compromise that the House of Delegates and the Senate have reached, It would surprise me not at all to see him propose a host […]

School Board Endorsements Tonight

26 March 2007 | PWCRC, Prince William County | 5 Comments

Tonight candidates for the Prince William County School Board will ask the county Republican committee for endorsements. The Brentsville District has a contested race between two rather well-liked candidates which should be pretty uneventful, but the recent spat between the leadership of the School Board and the Board of County Supervisors might make interesting […]

Forum Fireworks

25 March 2007 | Prince William County | 7 Comments

Today’s candidate forum at the Old Courthouse in Manassas wasn’t expected to be anything other than the usual stump speeches but turned out to be quite a spectacle, providing a lot more entertainment value than anyone expected.  I wasn’t able to attend, but I’ve heard from a number of folks who were there and none […]

Conservatives Win County Budget Battles

24 March 2007 | Prince William County | 26 Comments

The tussle between the Prince William County School Board leadership and the Board of County Supervisors seems to have abated. The BOCS agreed to provide an additional $9.5 million in funding, and the School Board agreed to go back and make an additional $2 million in cuts in order to allow for an additional […]

Here Come The Zoning Nazis?

24 March 2007 | Prince William County | 5 Comments

Folks from the Property Code Enforcement Division of Prince William County’s Department of Public Works have shown up in force in parts of the county near Manassas, and perhaps other areas with a big zoning enforcement push over the past week, listing some generic zoning issues that residents might not be in compliance with and […]

More Inanity In Loudoun County

23 March 2007 | Loudoun County | 16 Comments

Tenth District Chairman Jim Rich desperately needs to dissolve the Loudoun County Republican Committee and have it rebuilt from the ground up, as what continues to happen there is a tragic embarrassment. Lori Waters, who is being smeared as some sort of RINO used to work for Phyllis Schlafly, for crying out loud, and […]

Virginia ACLU Embraces Communism

23 March 2007 | Illegal Aliens, Virginia Politics | 2 Comments

Ever wonder what the ACLU of Virginia is up to when they’re not viewing rape films of underage teenage girls? Why, they’re helping to improve America, by participating in conference calls with the National Immigrant Solidarity Network in order to help facilitate “Decentralized Multi-Tactic May Day” events this year. I knew these folks […]

The Whirling Dervishes Of Leftist Ideology

23 March 2007 | Fairfax County, Humor & Satire | 2 Comments

Within five days of his decrying Marxist-Lenninist influence within the “progressive movement”, Lowell Feld of RK appears to be signing onto their agenda with the latest installment of class warfare cheerleading. That’s eerily reminiscent of Governor Kaine’s about-face on raising taxes after being elected, so perhaps this is less remarkable than it might otherwise […]

WHITEWASH

23 March 2007 | Manassas City | 32 Comments

The Manassas City Police Department has conducted a thorough investigation regarding the actions taken by several officers on the evening of January 13th, 2007 in which they confronted a group of lawful and peaceable gun owners and instigated their removal from the establishment where they were eating their dinner. While concerns were raised regarding […]

This Takes Big Ones

22 March 2007 | Humor & Satire, Manassas City | 18 Comments

Last week Steve Chapman sent a letter to my wife inviting her to attend a Family Alliance fundraiser breakfast, and tonight someone from the organization called with a follow-up, asking her to attend.  Chances of getting a positive reaction to this request might be just a little higher if Steve Chapman wasn’t still dragging out […]

It’s Gay Thursday In Manassas

22 March 2007 | Prince William County | 20 Comments

The mystery of which local establishment is starting to have a “Gay Night” as I reported last week in “More Manassas MySpace Intel” now seems solved. Sharpshooter’s, a bar/pool hall at the corner of Sudley Road and Sudley Manor Drive is now promoting an event which is disturbingly similar to what I reported on […]

A Gold-Plated School in PWC?

22 March 2007 | Prince William County | 15 Comments

Two members of the Prince William County School Board, Chairman Lucy Beauchamp and Vice-Chairman Dr. Michael Otaigbe, sent an open letter to the Prince William County Board of Supervisors that was published yesterday in the Gainesville Times. Not only is it rather unusual for the School Board leadership to get into a public political […]

Magical Money For Manassas Park

22 March 2007 | Manassas Park | 2 Comments

Late in the budget cycle, Manassas Park has suddenly discovered that there’s a pressing need to raise expenditures in order to retain firefighters and EMS personnel, according to an article appearing today in the Manassas Journal-Messenger. Never mind that this problem has been ongoing and should have already been reflected this year’s budget […]
