  • Bill addresses ballot shortage

    By Delegate Scott Garrett

        The 2017 General Assembly Session has reached the half-way point! On Tuesday, we experienced “Crossover.” This 45-day session is more like two sessions, with House bills introduced by Delegates and Senate bills introduced by Senators considered in the respective bodies during the first half. Those bills that pass the full body then “cross over” to the other body (a true bicameral legislature) for consideration and action prior to being reviewed by the Governor.

  • Muslim ban an outrageous immorality

        The disaster promised by The Great Stupidity of 2016 is now in full form, and decent Americans everywhere are disgusted and outraged by the extreme actions of our illegitimate and accidental president.
        The notion of Donald Trump in the Oval Office was always a nightmare, and now that bad dream has arms and legs. The ban on Muslims from seven countries – only the ones where Trump doesn’t have business interests – is immoral and unconstitutional.

  • Rally around the Trump

        I wonder if Rick Howell, of Liberal Agenda fame, ever reads The Economist? If he doesn’t, then he really should try to get a copy of last week’s edition and read the magazine’s Lexington column. The column provides an excellent description of why “Democrats’” current approach to opposing President Donald Trump is going to fail.

  • He’s surprised us before

        Former Fifth District Congressman Tom Perriello has entered Virginia’s gubernatorial race, seeking the Democratic nomination for governor for the November 2017 election.
        Perriello’s entrance into the race, challenging current Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam for the nomination, was a surprise to many in the Party, but then Perriello has provided political surprises before.

  • Extra Points: Superbowl

        Okay, here we go. These are my thoughts on the Super Bowl, the halftime show, overtime, the NFL rules and everything in between.
        Personally, I believe they shouldn’t have just called that final touchdown a touchdown without reviewing it. Everything was way too close. I saw a photo online they showed the running back’s knee was down, before he fell into the endzone.
