Archives for December 2007
2007 was a quite a year on BVBL, with stories of scandals, lawsuit threats, historic legislative efforts to combat the illegal alien problem, the Rack n’ Roll scandal in Manassas Park, and more. Here are the stories that readers found most interesting this year, based on the number of times that readers requested a […]
Commonwealth’s Attorneys Robert Horan and Paul Ebert have made the final cut in The Agitator’s competition for “Worst Prosecutor Of The Year” award, beating out thousands of other candidates to get into the final five. Make sure you visit and help ensure Northern Virginia gets the recognition it deserves, as our finest have some really […]
Northern Virginia will collect an estimated $335 million additional tax revenue annually beginning tomorrow under the provisions of last year’s transportation compromise. The new taxes affect car rentals, hotel stays, car repairs, and real estate transfers and impose new fees on vehicle licensing and registrations. Should everything work according to plan, this money will supposedly […]
At this time of the year police frequently set up sobriety checkpoints looking for driver who pose a hazard to others by driving while intoxicated. From the looks of an email I received this evening, there’s another hazard that the police are apparently addressing — driving without a license.
In April the Prince William County Republican Committee will select new leadership, capping off several months of behind-the-scenes jockeying for position that began about a year ago when the Tom Kopko faction of the committee began it’s quest to install Faisal Gill in the House of Delegates. After a pretty strong start as Chairman, Kopko […]
I’m getting some report that while I’ve been away, SUR-13 has been busy spraying graffitti around the neighborhood (and even tagged my church!), and a nightspot that caters to the hispanic community in Manassas Park was the site of a Christmas-eve armed robbery that left one waitress injured. Even though the crime rate has […]
I’m away visiting family where the internet access is problematic at best. While I’m gone, take a stab at being a blogger and keep your fellow readers up to speed on what’s happening by posting on this thread. Keep your fellow readers aptly entertained and informed, and you may be subjected to an […]
Some readers have expressed some confusion as to why BVBL would wade into a story regarding a Washington Post reporter and his unusual antics. Aside from similar past exclusives such as the story of candidate Jeff Dion’s proclivity for the perverse which have appeared here, this story has the added element of bringing out into […]
Apparently some knucklehead in Manassas was unlawfully converting rifles into automatic weapons and short-barreled rifles, and making silencers, according to WTOP. If there’s one body of federal law that is consistently and vigorously enforced, it’s federal firearms laws, and any idiot that doesn’t understand that and decides to flout these laws deserves the stiff punishment […]
Osborn High School in Manassas has two new openings for teachers. In order to qualify, you have to be able to instruct young men and women, and not be a drug dealer, since the last two got busted for being pot dealers.
From the MJM:
According to the Potomac News, Christian Molina, an illegal alien from El Salvador plead guilty to the murder of Ronald Hollingsworth, explaining that the reason he strangled him to death was because he misunderstood the term “homo sapien” during a discussion about evolution, thinking Hollingsworth had called him a homosexual. BVBL readers in a […]
It’s always nice to have a chance to take a shot at Governor Kaine on his refusal to enroll Virginia in the Section 287(g) Program.
An editor from the Washington Post called and claimed that the person in the gay personals ad shown in this post was not Tim Craig. While I suspect that it is, I’m pulling this article on the off chance that Tim Craig actually did have a virtual look-alike in the gay community while he was […]
Senator Jim Webb has managed to “triangulate” himself into the one policy position on the illegal alien issue that will ensure he enrages the most people as possible, as the Washington Times reports. While acknowledging that state and local government has a role to play in the problem, which is reasonable, the purpose for doing […]
Warning: disturbing content
Tim Craig spends a fair amount of time with our elected officials in Richmond in his capacity as a reporter for the Washington Post, and probably has developed some pretty good relationships with many of them. Before he took his Richmond assignment and was still in Washington, he got to meet another notable […]
As expected, Tom Tancredo ended his long-shot run at the Presidency this afternoon. Tancredo was a one-issue candidate, which is always hard to do. But I suspect Tancredo isn’t too disappointed with how things turned out. He had to know it was unlikely that he would win. On the other hand, Tancredo has undoubtedly shifted […]
I just got a call from the producer of the Lou Dobbs Tonight show, and they want to tape an interview with me this afternoon that will run on tonight’s show.
Yes, Virginia, we are going to get some national attention for the efforts of the citizens who want to ensure that special interests and illegal […]
According to the State Board of Elections, all of the candidates who submitted signatures as of last Friday have been certified by their respective parties and will appear on the primary ballots. Those candidates are:
Republican: Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, Ron Paul, John McCain, Fred Thompson, and Mike Huckabee.
Democrat: Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, Bill Richardson, Dennis […]
Here’s Rep. Jim Moran telling the American people, from the floor of the House of Representatives, that the reason violence is down in Iraq is because “we have ethnically cleansed Baghdad.”
This gentleman is an abomination. Our soldiers succeed in dramatically reducing the level of violence at a significant cost in American […]
The Washington Times has a good write-up on the formation of Save The Old Dominion in today’s edition, which should put on notice those illegal alien lobbyists that think they they’ll be allowed to continue to dominate in Richmond during this session of the General Assembly as they did last year. The citizens are going […]
