  • The disloyal opposition

  • Bin Laden's death

    I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda, and a terrorist who’s responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women and children.

  • The Farm Dust Regulation Prevention Act

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    Over the past couple of weeks, I have had the great opportunity to continue to meet with and hear from Central and Southside Virginians in and across the District.

     

  • Congress must provide consent for military action

    Over the last few weeks the debate in Congress has largely centered around the fiscal challenges that our country is facing and the out-of-control government spending that continues to plague our economy. While there is no doubt that the passage of a federal budget that brings government spending under control was of utmost importance, Congress must not neglect its responsibility and authority regarding the use of force in Libya.

     

  • More stuff to be afraid of

        I recently had the opportunity to intercept a working TV that was on its way to electronics recycling. It was a pre-digital broadcasting TV, so it needed a converter box, which the previous owner passed on to me. My old TV, a 1977 vintage set, died back in 2008, and I never replaced it. The price (free) for the “new” set was just what I was looking for.

  • The path to prosperity

    This past week House Republicans continued to take action to bring real change to Washington by passing a long term budget plan for 2012 and beyond, which stops spending money we don’t have, lifts our crushing debt burden, and helps promote job creation.

  • Donald Trump lost in ‘birther’ land

        The resistance to Barack Obama as President of the United States has produced a virus of hysteria among some people in this country. The “birthers” are the one manifestation of this that just won’t die out.

        Now, along comes a very prominent person, the billionaire real estate mogul, Donald Trump, who says he’s interested in running for president. You’d think, given his success in business and finance, that Trump might want to highlight the deficit and the debt, job creation, and similar issues.

  • Getting ready for the big one

        A last minute deal between “Democrats” and Republicans on April 8 avoided a government shutdown. As details emerged last week, it became apparent why nobody was happy with the result.

        The “Democrats” didn’t want any cuts at all. A lot of Republicans aren’t happy because a lot of cuts appear to be not real cuts at all. Furthermore funding for the EPA, and a few other things that many Republicans are not happy with, didn’t get cut as deeply as they would have liked.

  • The Good News

    hen the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.  And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.

        And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
