  • 2013’s highlight: Painting Virginia Blue!

    Virginia is a blue state now
    It’s glorious for Democrats to be able to state that as simply as noting the color of the sky or the sea.
        Yes, with the Democratic sweep of the 2013 statewide elections, the “Old Dominion” is officially transformed. As I’ve said previously, this isn’t your grandaddy’s Virginia.

  • Really Good News

    And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.
        (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
        And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
