  • Unrelenting gun violence strikes again

    The latest gun massacre in the United States struck this time in California, and sent the angry father of a victim on a personal gun control crusade.
        These events have now become so routine in America that they basically contain the same elements: Shooter (disturbed, fired, romantically rejected, depressed, etc.) enters building (school, workplace, shopping mall) and kills as many people with a gun as he can before killing himself.

  • Religious persecution is coming

        Facts are indeed stubborn things, as Rick Howell wrote in the Liberal Agenda last week. Liberals are also stubborn things although I often tend to think of them as more perverse than stubborn.
        One area where their perversity comes to fore is how they view the Constitution. When it suits them, they view the Constitution as a rubber document that can be stretched in any direction they choose. At the same time they can be hard-nosed strict constructionists when something can be used to support their social agenda.

  • They gave their all

    They were farmers, baseball players, factory workers.
        They had girlfriends—they enjoyed using the dollar they earned at National Guard meetings to buy popcorn and share a drink at the movies.
        The got Bibles for Christmas; they shot pool.
        And they gave their all for their country.
        Friday marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day, when this nation’s best stormed the beaches of Normandy. And in the first wave were the best and brightest of Bedford.

    Supporting
    traditional
    marriage

        On May 13, 2014, I, along with hundreds of others, traveled to Richmond to stand in support of traditional marriage.  Why does someone close to sixty years of age take a day off from work and travel over two and a half hours on a beautiful spring day? If not me, then who?

  • Giving thanks to our men and women in uniform

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    As we observe Memorial Day, we remember with gratitude all of those brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives while defending our great nation.  To all of those who are and have been members of our armed forces – thank you for all that you have given up in the name of American liberty.

     

  • Maintaining a commitment to individual liberties

    Throughout America’s history, our country has been engaged in a profound debate on the limits of government. In the Federalist Papers, the Founders argued passionately for a federal government that would protect the American people from foreign threats. At the same time, they struggled to create a structure to contain and control that government in order to protect the God-given rights of the American people. In drafting the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, they maintained a careful balance between preserving civil liberties and protecting our citizens from enemy threats.

  • What’s best for everyone

    By Gov. Terry McAuliffe

        When I first made the decision to run for governor, I did so for a simple reason: I believed the knowledge and experience I have accrued from a lifetime in business could help me create jobs, grow and diversify our economy, and lead Virginia forward.
