Today's Opinions

  • Conservatives in a purging mood, again

        Democrats picked up two more seats in the House on Election Day, winning special elections in New York and California. The party’s majority in the House now is such that it won’t be seriously threatened for many election cycles.

        Most of the media’s attention was on New York’s 23rd congressional district. There, conservative ideologues wickedly attacked the GOP nominee and forced her out of the race.

  • Will ACORN sprout in ObamaCare?

        A couple of months ago, thanks to some enterprising private citizens, ACORN got caught giving advice on how to break the law.

        Videos surfaced in September of employees at ACORN field offices in three different cities advising a pair, posing as a pimp and a prostitute, on how to launder money earned from prostitution. They also got advice on how to evade the law to bring underage prostitutes into the country and house them.

    Don’t take away our leftovers

        Bedford Primary School is the only school in the county without a gym.  Earlier this year Dr. Blevins announced at a PTA meeting that the county would most likely begin construction in August of 2009 and complete construction before the end of the school year.  Now the county is trying to put the project on hold again.

  • The public’s option?

    For Fifth District Congressman Tom Perriello the recently-passed health care reform bill is the best medicine invented since chicken soup. But Sixth District Congressman Bob Goodlatte has a different take — calling the bill a budget buster and a job killer. To him it’s nothing more than a bitter pill to have to swallow from a House controlled by Democrats.

  • House passes health care bill

    The House of Representatives recently passed the Affordable Health Care for America Act, which will make health care affordable for the middle class, provide security for seniors, and reduce the federal deficit. After months of listening to constituents, doctors, and seniors around the 5th District, I cast my vote in favor of this bill because we cannot sit back and let health care costs continue to crush middle-class families and our seniors.

  • Access to affordable alternatives

    You know what’s best for your family when it comes to health care, and it is crucial that any health care reform proposal ensures high-quality health care, protects your ability to make choices, and gives you affordable options.

  • Shoreline Management Plan up for review

  • What’s wrong with this picture?

    At the National D-Day Memorial, General of the Army George C. Marshall, VMI graduate, Roosevelt’s Army Chief of Staff and “the true organizer of victory” in Churchill’s words, is honored with a plaque in the Gray Plaza along with plaques memorializing the commanders of U.S. V and VII Corps.

        At the National D-Day Memorial, Joseph Stalin, Hitler’s early ally, who, with Hitler, invaded and dismembered Poland in 1939 thus becoming with Hitler the co-architect of WWII, is to be given a prominently located sculpture, a bust.
