A City Attorney’s Intellectual Seppuku

17 February 2010 | 13th HOD District, Virginia Politics, Manassas City | 22 Comments

Manassas City Deputy Attorney Martin Crim demonstrates his utter lack of competence in a letter to the editor published in the Manassas News & Messenger today, making many folks wonder whether the City of Manassas deliberately hires fools, or only does so inadvertently.  In a rant attacking the legal prowess of Delegate Bob Marshall and […]

Yet More Illegal Alien Crime

17 February 2010 | Illegal Aliens, Crime, Manassas City | 41 Comments

Not surprisingly the Manassas News & Messenger didn’t tell you that the three gang members recently arrested for rape, abduction, robbery and attempted malicious wounding are all illegal aliens.  No, disclosing such facts might just paint illegal aliens in a negative light.  We might then have evidence to substantiate a previous estimate from the Virginia […]

E-Verify Passes House

16 February 2010 | Illegal Aliens, Crime, Virginia House | 14 Comments

Delegate Dave Albo’s HB 737 was originally designed to improve employment opportunities for the roughly 275,000 Virginians out of work by mandating that Virginia businesses use the E-Verify system, as several other states have already done.  Because of concerns that Senate Democrats would kill a jobs bill if it meant that illegal aliens might be […]

How Long Before Our Schools Reopen?

16 February 2010 | Prince William County | 38 Comments

Once again, Prince William County Schools are closed on Tuesday, February 16th.  The last time my oldest daughter attended school was on February 4th, and while I enjoy the time with the kids this extended, unscheduled vacation is starting to wear a little thin on me.  Enough is enough.  It’s well past time to resume […]

Bob Marshall On Fox News

14 February 2010 | National Politics, 13th HOD District, Virginia Politics | 42 Comments

Nice to see delegate Bob Marshall get some national coverage on HB 10 on Fox News the other day. If Bob manages to inspire some other states to follow suit on this, the idea that the federal government can compel you to buy health insurance under penalty of fines and […]

Sharing The Light

14 February 2010 | Prince William County | 2 Comments

Here’s one of the projects that kept posting a little light this week, as I dove into a project for my Church while the snow was falling.  My friends might recognize a few of the faces in this video…

Virginia Senate: Is Budget Paralysis A Better Option?

13 February 2010 | 29th VA Senate, Virginia Senate | 11 Comments

The central political struggle that grips this year’s session of the General Assembly is quite understandably the budget.  With revenues down and plenty of good causes deserving of taxpayer dollars, Senate Democrats in particular have been taking potshots at the Governor and the Republican majority in the House for rejecting the idea of raising taxes […]

Are Albo And Kilgore Pro-Abortion?

11 February 2010 | Virginia House | 54 Comments

Gosh, you have to wonder about that given this vote on HB 112.  I had always been under the impression that Delegates Dave Albo and Terry Kilgore supported Life.
Maybe I was wrong.

The Trashman Cometh

11 February 2010 | Humor & Satire, Prince William County | 28 Comments

Got this video clip from a friend last week and felt it’s too funny not to share. Who the heck walks around with a bag of trash hidden under a poncho looking for someone else’s trash cans to leave it next to?

PWC’s Best Slush Fund

10 February 2010 | Crime, Prince William County | 6 Comments

I’m not a big fan of the idea of local governments doling out taxpayer dollars to charities. There’s no moral argument in seizing wealth (under penalty of law) from taxpayers in order to fund charitable groups, and the opportunity for graft and corruption to creep into funding decisions is substantial.  If private individuals and entities […]

Another Outrageous Waste Of Taxpayer Dollars

10 February 2010 | National Politics, Local Economy | 10 Comments

When IndyMac was shut down by the FDIC, the assets were sold off at a steep discount to a bunch of Democratic Party insiders.  As part of the deal, the FDIC guaranteed to cover creatively-calculated “losses” allowing banks to reap rich taxpayer-subsidized profits in a way that actually encourages banks to foreclose rather than work […]

An Unfortunately-Timed Object Lesson

10 February 2010 | Fairfax County, Virginia House | 6 Comments

Attention candidates for elected office:  when you think that maybe it’s a good idea to use cheap, low-quality videos in your campaign at the same time you’re spending gobs of money on direct mail, remember this.  Kerry joins a long list of good candidates who got punished for not thinking that it’s worth making sure […]

As if we really needed another bout of snow, the National Weather Service is predicting between seven and fourteen more inches of snow to fall between Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday evening, accompanied by fairly strong winds that will cause drifting and visibility problems, particularly on Wednesday.   While a lot […]

McDonnell Reverses Kaine School Funding Grab

8 February 2010 | Virginia Politics, Prince William County | 15 Comments

Delegate Jackson Miller was clearly happy to announce that Governor McDonnell undid the freeze in the LCI funding formula today, ensuring that schools in Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park won’t get unfairly punished in the next biennial budget.  Although this doesn’t make budget discussions any easier this year as the decision increases costs […]

Snowpocalypse: The Aftermath

7 February 2010 | Prince William County | 31 Comments

And now the ‘dig out’ and recovery begins.  The roof of the ice skating center in Dale City collapsed from the weight of the snow, as did the roof of a hangar at Manassas Airport.  About 4,000 homes in Prince William County lost power at some point during the storm, and temperatures this morning were […]

The NAACP Sells Out

6 February 2010 | National Politics | 9 Comments

One of the organizations I’ve always held respect for has been the NAACP.  Not that I always agreed with them, sometimes I’ve disagreed with them rather strongly, but given their history and record of accomplishment they’d always get a pass from me.  They could be forgiven what I perceived as occasional mistakes or misunderstandings.  In […]

6 February 2010 | Uncategorized | 10 Comments

And the show just keeps on coming.  Surprisingly, as far as I can tell, the roads aren’t in too bad a shape, considering what’s happening out there.
Now if we can just keep those who don’t know what they’re doing off the roads until the snow stops and the roads are fully cleared, we should be […]

A Wolf Looking Out For The Folks

5 February 2010 | National Politics, US Congress | 7 Comments

Guest Commentary by Sanford D. Horn
In children’s literature, the wolf is portrayed as the ruffian, the evil-doer. He went after grandmother in Little Red Riding Hood, he huffed and puffed in The Three Little Pigs, and of course there’s Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf.
Back in the adult world, I say three cheers for the […]

Snow Postpones Frank Wolf Campaign Kickoff

4 February 2010 | Uncategorized | 31 Comments

And there’s another early fallout from the snowstorm predicted for this weekend…
If you were planning to attend Frank Wolf’s campaign kickoff on Friday, it has been postponed until February 19th. That’ll leave you some additional time to panic this weekend as you search out where to stock up on milk, toilet paper, and Cheez-its. […]
