Item 15A on last week’s agenda of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors concerned a request to rezone about ten acres of land that is largely zoned as agricultural land to high-density residential in order to permit the construction of 128 townhouses in the Woodbridge District. When this came up, Supervisor Frank Principi argued […]
One hundred and thirty-three million Americans filed individual tax returns in 2005, and I would imagine that the number of filers in 2007 couldn’t have exceeded an even one hundred and forty million people. If we look at the size of the bailout package that almost got rammed through the House of Representatives today, our […]
Have at it…
Scott’s Morning Brew (and plenty of other political blogs as well) are completely outraged, and with good reason, over the discovery that Barack Obama’s reference to a fallen American soldier in his campaign is against the wishes of the soldier’s family. I swear, we really must have had to work incredibly hard to end up […]
The Virginia Anarchist Federation is part of the coalition that is diligently working to protect illegal aliens from the consequences of their actions. Sometimes it’s interesting to browse through the websites of these organizations and see what they’re trying to do, and in this case, it’s pretty revealing.
Alexandria has pretty much declared itself a sanctuary jurisdiction for illegal aliens, making it perfectly clear that it will not take any action to discourage the unlawful presence of illegal aliens unless required to do so by law. As a result, they’ve seen an influx of students that taxpayers are now responsible for, and from […]
McCain and Obama debated tonight. I doubt anyone out there changed the way they felt about the candidates as a result of this little exercise.
It can be summed up with “let’s be vague.”
Here’s what happens when elected officials ignore citizen demands that the law is enforced:
Eastern Loudoun County is a tinderbox. Residents are on edge about the criminals in our midst and about our government agencies not doing their job. The citizens are paying close attention to the government and they are expecting more enforcement of our […]
Prince William County, like every other locality in America, conducts employee training in order to ensure that public employees are equipped with all of the skills and training they need in order to do their jobs to the best of their ability. County Police Officers receive training at the FBI Academy at Quantico Marine Corps […]
The miscreants who showed up at this week’s evening session of the Board of County Supervisors this week in order to pursue their personal vendetta against a fellow county resident demanded statements from the county supervisors. They failed to notice that one of them had already provided a statement which he read during the afternoon […]
Just because he’s talking about illegal aliens that happen to be Caucasian, that doesn’t give John McCain license to call for granting them amnesty.
McCain said there were “50,000 Irish men and women in this country illegally who want to become citizens” and that “we have to give them a path to citizenship.”
No, we do not.
I get a lot of folks emailing me for information about the political scene, so here’s an installment of “Ask The Answer Guy” to make it easy for everyone. Enjoy.
When Supervisor John Stirrup raised questions with County Executive Craig Gerhart about the unprecedented level of access and support provided to the “9500 Liberty” crew, Gerhart dismissed this behavior as the normal way the county deals with the press. It’s all routine, Gerhart asserts, and anyone noting the vastly different preferential treatment some political activists […]
The Manassas City Council decided to settle with the ERC tonight and provide them and the plaintiffs they represented in a frivolous lawsuit with a settlement of about seven hundred thousand dollars. ERC’s take on this extortion-by-attorney, supplemented by contractual bonuses from the plaintiffs, will no doubt be used to finance another shakedown of another […]
Taking action to reduce the effects of illegal immigration doesn’t always involve complaining to your elected officials that they’re not getting the job done. Sometimes, you have to simply do that job yourself.
Some homeowners in Yorkshire have had their property vandalized by gang members seeking to mark their territory, and the Clean Community Council and […]
Well, just have a look at this item that quietly showed up on the agenda for tomorrow’s meeting of the Manassas City Council:
ACTION ITEM: Consideration of Resolution #R-2009-38 as Full and Final Settlement Agreement and Release of the Equal Rights Center, Et Al. v. City of Manassas and City of Manassas […]
The other day I showed readers how a political partisan with an axe to grind with the policies that the Board of Supervisors crafts a nice little video attacking those policies. He provides a private, temporary link to this video and asks the county’s Communications Director, Chief Executive Officer and the Public Information Officer for […]
I’ve been getting these invitations to a “study circle” being set up by George Mason University and Unity In The Community, and heavily promoted by our local self-described illegal alien apologists, and I can’t imagine how they could ever believe I would participate. Oh, the explanation of this is just chock-full of glittering generalities about […]
