Guest Post from Stan Scott, 2019 Democratic Candidate for Virginia State Senate: Abortion: What is to be Done?

I’ve written in the past about existential issues – policy questions that settle the political debate for many Americans. Some focus on Second Amendment rights, others on taxes or religion. Abortion – reproductive health care – is one of the big ones.   Most activists frame the abortion discussion in terms of rights. The pro-life side […]

ABORTION: What Is To Be Done?

Let’s Start With What It Is: Willful Taking of a Human Life I found out in my research that there is some dissent or at least some questioning the idea that science says life begins a conception. From WIRED: Inside the body, fertilization can happen hours or even days after insemination, as the sperm travels […]

Time for Legislative Action on No-Contest Clauses in Wills or Trusts

The law of Virginia Dodged a Bullet in 2015 and just Dodged Another Last Week! I fully realize in the Time of COVID, reform of non-contest clauses in wills and trusts seems trivial. But the Virginia courts have suddenly been dealt with a number of cases discussing these clauses that forbid legal contests over what […]

Let’s Make It Clear: Sanders Is For John McGuire In the Seventh!

I Endorse Thomas Massie in 2020

Others should too! I want to make it clear: I am for Rep. Thomas Massie. I am concerned about two articles: First, Breitbart has in effect an editorial/op-ed at least about Massie and the writer (Virgil – obviously a pseudonym) where this writer compares Massie to the sole representative to vote against the declaration of […]

A Significant Ballot Access Development

The Decision Only Applies to the GOP Senate Primary, BUT… There was a development almost missed by many with COVID-19 and social distancing BUT it’s important (certainly important to Omari Faulkner) but it is a chink in the armor of our draconian ballot access rules.

You Are My Hero, Cong. Massie. Keep It Up!

The Other Members of Congress Should Have Stayed In Town Until Business Was Done! So Stop Whining! Those words were my tweet back to the Congressman from Kentucky Thomas H. Massie.

Should Members of Congress Be Subject to Criminal Insider Trading Laws?

No, and Neither Should Non-Members of Congress! I am deeply concerned about the allegations that various Members of Congress might have traded on their stock portfolios after meeting with the President about the coronavirus pandemic. It is a political crime if proven; would be a good reason to vote for an opponent. Maybe also even […]
