The likelihood of Brentsville Supervisor Wally Covington getting appointed to a judgeship has had conservatives in Prince William County talking a lot lately, especially after former Planning Commission and Soil and Water Board member Austin Haynes spent a bit of time talking with people about the possibility of running for the spot. Austin is known […]
I am sick of seeing the thirty second propaganda spots running on cable TV that advocate the Outer Beltway, ads that are being financed by YOUR taxpayer dollars. Government using your money to convince you that developers need you to spend money for their benefit is an absolute outrage.
If you want to help support an effort to […]
Share this one with everyone you know.
Ken Cuccinelli delivered these remarks at the Rally Against The Bi-County Parkway (which I refer to as the Outer Beltway), making it very clear that this November we have a choice for Governor between one person who stands with people, and another whom stands for anyone willing to cut him a check.
With the shutdown of the federal government comes the closure of Manassas Battlefield National Park. You’d expect from this that the doors would be locked at the visitor’s center, that gates might be closed, and that there wouldn’t be any park service employees at the park. On that last point though, you’d be wrong. They […]
Nothing makes you feel more at home at a public candidate debate than to have an officer of the Prince William Committee of 100 invite you to photograph his balls.
For many years I have been an unabashed and strong supporter of Corey Stewart. When citizens had a concern, Corey listened to what they had to say, came up with policy options that might address those concerns, and then either lead or played a major role in getting those policy objectives enacted. As […]
It’s just heartwarming how in the midst of multi-million dollar budget mistakes, inane decisions that gave us logo-gate, and persistent general government malfeasance, Prince William County Government has established a new priority goal that will benefit the whole community: a plan to attack citizens who dare to criticize government. I’m sure when Melissa Peacor is done […]
In the middle of June, Prince William County Schools announced they’d be participating in a USDA program to provide free meals to any children up to age 18 in the county’s Title 1 schools during their summer sessions. No questions asked, a kid shows up and he gets a free breakfast or lunch. At the local elementary […]
Your local taxpayer dollars are now being used to pay county employees to comment on local blogs and root out who the “Sheriff of Nottingham” is? Seriously?
This is utterly ridiculous. Melissa Peacor and Jason Grant have got to go. When government at any level is spending taxpayer dollars in a propaganda war and working overtime to discover […]
Just who runs the Prince William County government these days? Who makes the decisions, and who minds the store?
If you thought that our elected officials, the members of the Board of County Supervisors were in charge, you would be wrong. They certainly have a role, but when elected officials butt heads with county staff about […]
Most people don’t spend a lot of time thinking about what happens inside in the area’s houses of worship. The faithful does what it wants to do, and we don’t concern ourselves with it. That’s how it should be, up until we start seeing these facilities used by agents of hostile foreign regimes. If a […]
The Sheriff was the first to notice that our County Executive took it upon herself to decide that not only did the county needed a new logo, but that she was going to be the one who would determine what it would look like. As a result, we end up with this kind of meaningless, […]
“Everyone who is opposed to the [Bi-County Parkway] and not offering an alternative is a coward.” — Corey Stewart.
The question here is what the alternative is supposed to accomplish. If the purpose is to provide profit opportunities for the developers that contribute to Corey Stewart’s election campaigns, I suppose we could pay them with public […]
Just in case anyone felt there weren’t enough depressing stories out there about how local governments in the area are being wasteful with our tax dollars comes this morning’s PWC Education Reform bombshell about how Prince William County Schools is secretly planning to build not one, but six pools in local high schools. At the same time […]
There’s lots happening in the lead-up to the Republican Convention and around the area in local politics, so let’s take a quick pass at all that’s happening since there isn’t time to cover all of these in detail right now.
You know those blogs that annoy you by constantly talking about one single thing to the exclusion of all else? The ones that drive you so absolutely mad with their droning, unvarying drumbeat of monotony they make you want to throw random objects at your computer screen?
Well, let’s do that.
It’s not that I particularly want to, but […]
An email from the Corey Stewart for Lieutenant Governor campaign landed in my inbox today with such a depressing thud that I couldn’t focus any longer on getting productive work done. This campaign silliness has gotten so bad I’m starting to get awfully angry.
I was rather amused to find a diatribe in my inbox in defense of a Tea Party endorsement (wait, it’s supposed to be a vetting, right?) of Corey Stewart today, and it just wouldn’t be fair to readers if I neglected to share it. Apparently I’ve managed to upset a few people and my inbox […]
PWC Democratic Chairman Harry Wiggins had the pleasure of receiving a delegation of Chinese Communist Party members today, May Day 2013.
I have to wonder just who learned more during that exchange.
