Another one from Historic Manassas, Inc. Man, I love this town!
First the federal government published a manual identifying American citizens concerned about abortion or the Second Amendment to the Constitution as potential terrorists, spurring widespread outrage. Now Virginia has got into the game according to Fredericksburg.com in a new and entirely unprecedented way. If you care about property rights and the Commonwealth wrongly seizing property […]
This week a number of important initiatives to crack down on illegal immigration made their way through the immigration subcommittee of the House Courts of Justice committee on a largely party-line vote, according to patch.com. Among the bills that are moving forward are ones that require the use of E-Verify to help ensure that businesses […]
apparently involves midgets. Now we can really say we have it all in Manassas, since there’s going to be midget wrestling at the Manassas Hard Times Cafe next month.
I wonder if this is going to be a black tie event?
Oh, happy, happy day! The Prince William County Democratic Committee has chosen none other than Bruce Roemmelt to be their new chairman, after apparently tiring of the remarkably adult supervision of Pete Frisbee. If having radical, homosexual lobby pandering unitarians as opposing candidates when you’re a Republican weren’t enough of a gift, now the whole […]

I wonder if anyone else who read the article in the Washington Post titled “Immigrant database failed to catch suspect before rape” Thursday, January 27, 2011, page A1/A11 thought that it was one of the sloppiest pieces of journalism that they have ever read. I cannot believe it appeared on the […]
Democrats trash Chuck Colgan in order to protect embattled Senate P&E Chair Janet “because I said so” Howell, who has come under a withering fire for acting like a tyrant jerk in the Senate lately. You’d think these same Democrats would remember that they kinda owe Chuck a few, since a huge reason they have […]
There have been several of us over the years who saw annual appropriations by the General Assembly to charitable non-state entities as a flagrant violation of the Constitution of Virginia. Today Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli confirms that the longstanding practice is indeed against the law. The difference between my occasional whining and today’s immediate halt […]
With all the accomplishments of American ingenuity, enterprise and creativity, when the President needs to come up with a term invoking our ingenuitive past, there’s no shortage of material to draw from.
Instead, he offers us the opportunity to grasp “our sputnik moment.”
For the love of God.
During his town hall meeting this evening, Frank Principi admitted that the most frequent complaint he gets from constituents concerns the largely illegal alien day laborers that gather in two spots along Route 1. So what does Principi do to address these frequent complaints? Maybe start delivering on the campaign promises he made in the […]
This was screened at the Blue & Gray Ball this weekend as part of a tribute to the person who made our upcoming sesquicentennial such a grand enterprise. A lot of people asked when this would be made available online after the screening, so it seems fitting to feature it here. […]
…at least when it comes to how much our electricity costs. Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has compiled a list of electric rates in Virginia, and top of the list is our very own NOVEC which is currently charging $131.88 for a thousand kilowatt hours at the same time it has a pending rate increase request. […]
Gary Friedman, who is running for PWC Chairman as a Democrat, wants you to think his campaign is just humming along. To that end he’s sent out a campaign statement touting just how great his campaign fundraising is going to the local Lunatics blog, which apparently is willing to publicize anything — no matter how […]
When is a prayer not a prayer? When Manassas City Manager Larry Hughes gives his opinion:
“The invocations are very ecumenical in content and tone; it is closer to a statement of hope and thanks than a traditional prayer,” said Manassas City Manager Larry Hughes. “There are no religious references in the statements.”
So the guy who is on record for saying that Corey Stewart somehow “injected hatred” into the Rule of Law Resolution has officially filed his paperwork to challenge Chairman Corey Stewart for the Republican nomination, according to InsideNova. This should be pretty interesting. While there’s a lot about Tito I like and respect, he sure […]
Now this should be interesting…
Leesburg, VA: At a joint press conference with Americans For Prosperity - Virginia and former Governor George Allen to be held tomorrow, Governor Allen will announce the formal name change of Americans For Prosperity - Virginia to “George Allen For Governor”, with AFP Virginia Director Ben Marchi assuming the new leadership […]
Delegate Jackson Miller recently had a chance to debate someone from the open borders crowd on Fox & Friends regarding a proposed bill that would require legal presence by attendees at Virginia’s public universities and colleges. Given that taxpayers subsidize these institutions pretty heavily, it makes sense that the slots be filled by citizens, legal […]
Too Funny. Only in Manassas Park…
On average you tend to be. Take the quiz below to find out.
When someone applies for a driver’s license in Virginia they’re “offered” a voter registration application, even in the most unusual circumstances. Even though DMV is supposed to be gathering information about an applicant’s legal status and citizenship, they still seem to manage to extend this offer for voting privileges to people who they know, […]
