  • Agreement on budget elusive

    By Senator David Suetterlein

    By Delegate Kathy Byron
                            The 2018 General Assembly session ended as scheduled on Saturday.  Of the 2,606 bills submitted by legislators, 874 were approved.  One very important bill, the state budget, was not.  Consequently, we’ll be returning to Richmond soon to approve a two-year spending plan.

        Of all the candidates who want the Republican nomination for Congress in the Sixth Congressional District, there is one who stands out from the crowd for harsh extremism and sheer lunacy.
        Cynthia Dunbar is a right-wing import from Texas (there’s some immigration I’d like to stop). She was notorious for being one of the religious fanatics who gained control of the state board of education. 

  • Do you trust the government? ?

        Last week Rick Howell in his Liberal Agenda, typical of the left wing extremists who dominate the “Democratic” Party, blamed the problem of mass shootings in the United States on the presence of guns  in America. At the beginning of of his column, he identified Columbine High School as the scene of America’s first mass shooting in a high school. He correctly gave the year of that mass shooting as 1999.
