Opportunity lost

    Last week the Bedford County School Board voted to spend an additional $750,000 to hire seven more teachers to help with secondary school programs as well as eight teachers to work in schools that are currently Accredited with Warning.
    Those appear to be needed areas to shore up some trouble spots in the system.

Good riddance

Why anyone would feel the need to give props to recently departed Venezuelan leader Hugo Chávez seems beyond explanation, but it’s certainly all the rage this past week for folks on the left.
    Suddenly this inept, dictatorial politician is eulogized as a conquering hero, a champion of the poor, a standard-bearer for all that is right and good.

$85 billion?

ll of this hoopla over $85 billion? Really? That’s what we’re supposed to believe?
    If the federal government can’t figure out how to cut $85 billion from a $3.8 trillion budget, we’re in deeper trouble than we thought.
    Three-fourths of this nation’s citizens don’t yet know what sequestration is—and even less really care. The President and Congress just don’t get it; we want a government that truly serves the people, not their own political interests.

Another hit

Don’t expect Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell to get much support from conservatives should he aspire to higher office.
    He just committed the conservative cardinal sin: implementing tax increases.
    And his transgression turned out to be a whopper—one of the highest tax increases in the history of the commonwealth.
    That just won’t play well on the Tea Party circuit. And it shouldn’t.
    What was he thinking?

Truth be told: It’s already unraveling

he news should come as no surprise to anyone: The government program to cover those who cannot get health insurance because of a preexisting medical condition is out of money. After just two years.
    And for anyone who isn’t already signed up in the plan, it’s too late.
    Those who trusted the government to get this right were living a fantasy. The truth about government run entitlement programs is this: It will always cost more money than is advertised and it will be run with great ineffectiveness.

This is ridiculous

A Virginia inmate wants a sex change operation. And he wants Virginia taxpayers to foot the bill.
    This is ridiculous.
    The inmate now goes by the name Ophelia De’lonta, and has apparently been diagnosed with gender identity disorder.
    De’lonta believes she is trapped in the body of the opposite sex. But, more importantly, De’lonta is being held captive by another entity, the Virginia court system. She has been incarcerated since 1983, serving a 73-year sentence for bank robbery.

Who’s counting?

Need an example of why the government doesn’t need any more of your money? Take a look at the Superstorm Sandy relief measure, expected to pass Congress soon.
    The final $50 billion in emergency aid will eat up, and surpass, the money funded through the recently approved, “fiscal cliff” tax increases.
    The fact is, the cliff just keeps getting taller.

Reacting vs. being reasonable

While the Obama Administration has jumped on the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut as an opportunity to attack gun ownership, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his School Safety Panel are promising to take a reasonable approach to looking at school safety.
    That’s a breath of fresh air.
    It seems anytime there’s a shooting, anymore, politics raises its ugly, reactionary head.
