After five ballots, I am pleased to announce that my friend and former Lieutenant Governor of Maryland Michael Steele won election to become chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Not that Michael would make an issue of this, but he becomes the first black chairman of the RNC and brings enthusiasm […]
Taxpayers provide the staff at the Prince William County Schools with various IT resources that they’re supposed to use for their jobs. These include the usual things like email systems, websites, and computers that we’re all pretty familiar with in our jobs. When we start using our work computers and the IT resources of our […]
The Daily Press is reporting that Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine apparently spent $500,000 of your taxpayer dollars providing buses to bring 75,000 supporters to the inauguration of President Barack Obama earlier this month. Yeah, in his spare time he fills in as Virginia’s Governor as well. You’d hardly know that from his comments, […]
Remember when Chuck Colgan told people last election he was going to be tough on illegal immigration? Guess what folks — he recently voted to provide illegal aliens with preferential in-state tuition rates in SB 1037 even though federal law prohibits providing such benefits. I guess campaign promises aren’t what they used to be. Of […]

Usually we can count on the irascible Democratic Congressman Jim Moran (VA-8) for entertainment whenever he decides to open his mouth, but this time the irascibility was a tag-team effort with his wife LuAnn Bennett who both caused a scene on Inauguration Day at the Capitol.
Help Save Manassas will have their monthly meeting Wednesday, January 28th at 7:30 at Manassas City Council Chambers. With the General Assembly session in full swing in Richmond, there’s going to be a lot of information about what is happening in Richmond and why, and what Virginia groups seeking to reduce the number of illegal […]
You really got to wonder who these folks think they’re working for. Is there any track record of success for elected officials who say their constituents “need to grow up” when they’re advocating for their own children?” I kind of doubt it.
I’ve been working on some interesting projects at the expense of keeping folks updated. There’s been a lot happening, with Pelosi declaring that “economic stimulus” means federally funding abortion providers in the U.S., a big bust of a Stafford County man for his smuggling drugs and money for a Mexican drug cartel, and a proposals […]
Usually these emails don’t get a lot of attention from me, but this week’s “Chairman’s Update” from Republican Party of Virginia Jeff Frederick was so well written it wouldn’t be right to let it rot in the graveyard of my inbox. I’ve yet to encounter a better evaluation of the presidency of George Bush, the […]

Caught on video tape, freshman Democratic Congressman Gerald Connolly (VA-11th) gave a speech where he pleaded with an audience to remind all the Democrats they know to vote on Tuesday, February 3 and conversely to remind all the Republicans they know to cast their ballots on the following Tuesday, February […]
This time, an illegal alien (yes Chuck Colgan, they actually do exist) wrapped a three year old child in duct tape and beat her. That’s quite a “contribution” to the “diversity” we need in our community, isn’t it?
Anyone interested in seeing fiscal responsibility exercised in Prince William County should be rather interested in the behavior of the Prince William County School Board, seeing that the current funding formula awards more taxpayer dollars to the school system than all other government functions combined. In a tough budget cycle a school system lacking in […]
Tonight’s meeting of the Prince William County School Board was an absolute circus. If you have never seen outright and obvious contempt on the part of public employees and even some elected representatives of the citizenry they are supposed to serve, having not experienced the pleasure of visiting a Soviet gulag, you might want to […]
The Prince William County School Board will consider a proposal to allow schools to opt-out of the Math Investigations curriculum this evening. Tonight’s meeting will be at Edward L. Kelly Leadership Center, located at 14715 Bristow Rd., Manassas, VA 20112 (directions here) at 7:00 PM rather than the school board meeting room in Independent Hill. […]
That flushing sound you heard was our Constitution. We are now governed by the law of the jungle. To make it even better, there’s a move underfoot to make the Maximum Leader a “President for Life”.
Breaking: President Bush commuted the sentences of two former Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean.
Senator Emmett Hangar, the Republican embarrassment of Augusta County, has once again outdone himself, this time proposing legislation that would facilitate voter fraud and potentially make it possible for illegal aliens to vote in non-federal elections. His latest outrage, SB 1038, would establish a presumption that anyone who files taxes in the state is domiciled […]
An audit of the Gainesville District Volunteer Fire and Rescue uncovered a pretty shocking finding among a trove of issues according to reports on WMAL this afternoon: that Chief Richard Bird had moved his family into the firehouse several years ago and was essentially living rent-free in a county facility. Needless to say, the Board […]
Wouldn’t you know, Obama isn’t even in office and Congress is pushing through taxpayer-funded benefits for illegal aliens. CNS News is reporting on the abomination that is the expansion of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, a tremendously dumb idea previously (and surprisingly) vetoed by an otherwise spendthrift President Bush due to the tremendous expense. […]
I know it’s only January, but bear with me. A woman stays home from work, and the alarm goes off. She investigates and finds three men trying to get in her basement door. They see her and run off, except for one that turns back and advances towards the woman. The woman, being a Prince […]
