  • Like a refugee column

        Ukraine’s army, such as it is, provides a good illustration about why Ukraine is so vulnerable to Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin’s efforts to pull it apart.

  • Cliven Bundy: A true GOP voter

    You know, I didn’t want to spend a column on that backward Nevada rancher who has made such a fool out of himself trying to graze his cattle for free on government-owned land.
        But he’s so typical of many American conservatives these days that I just couldn’t resist. If they were to truly pay attention here, many Republicans could learn a lesson about how to get back into the good graces of the modern American voter and finally win some national elections.

  • Restoring the Chesapeake Bay

    By Donald E. Lewis
    Goode

        I agree with the lawsuit against the EPA.
        I am concerned they do not mention the chemical companies involvement in the Chesapeake Bay pollution of the nitrogen and phosphorus. The Monsantos and other big rich chemical companies have over load farmers for years. The cow manure is not the cause as our government is trying to make us believe.

  • Holding the VA accountable

    More than 840,000 veterans call Virginia home and more than 20 million reside in the United States. They have served on battlefields across the globe, been stationed at bases both at home and abroad, and spent months, and even years, away from loved ones. They have sacrificed greatly to defend the freedoms you and I enjoy each day. In turn, it is our duty to ensure that they have access to the care needed when their military service is over.

     

  • We must increase our energy independence and create jobs with the Keystone XL Pipeline

  • Correcting a commonly repeated fallacy

        There is a fallacy that I hear repeated without fail every year during budget time. Actually, it isn’t really a fallacy. It’s more of a half-truth. Every year at least one person, who is speaking before the supervisors urging them to raise taxes, will say that the tax rate was higher at some point in the past decade.
        These speakers are correct. It was 65 cents in 2006 and 73 cents in 2002.

  • An unaffordable mandate

    It speaks volumes when one of the most vocal supporters of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, says it will “destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class” if not fixed. But that is what James Hoffa, president of the Teamsters union, made clear last year in a letter to Democratic leadership in Congress.

  • Obama deserves health care victory lap

    Have you been waiting – because of “Obamacare” - for the United States to fall into the sea? For the mountains to collapse onto the flat-lands and smother us all?
        Or maybe you expected Marx and Lenin to rise from their graves, and cast us all into some Godless, communistic bondage?

  • Jobs remain our top priority

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

  • Would this be legal?
