By Their Own Admission

  A story in the Richmond Times Dispatch November 14, 2016 prompted by a report of the Joint Legislative Audit & Review Commission ( JLARC) warrants taxpayers attention. It has long been alleged that the 20 year old legislation to create an ever expanding array of Economic Development agencies has been riddled with example after […]

My Unbiased Opinion on the Vogel – Reeves Email Scandal

I am not supporting any State Senators in the Lt. Governor’s race this year. Neither Jill Vogel nor Bryce Reeves will see my endorsement for two reasons. First, neither has impressed me with their voting records. But the biggest reason by far is the balance of power in the State Senate. Vogel’s seat may be […]

The Washington Post Owes Me an Apology. I Correctly Called the Poll Bias While They Scoffed

A couple of weeks before the election this past November, the Washington Post ran a column written by Catherine Rampell ironically titled “When the facts don’t matter, how can democracy survive?“ And in her column Rampell went on a rant against those of us who insist on accuracy in numbers. Government numbers and especially polling […]

Why Party Registration in Virginia is a Horrible Idea (or The Swamp Fights Back!)

Here they go again. Republicans just keep earning the nickname “The Stupid Party” year after year. And make no mistake, the push for party registration is a flat out GOP Establishment (GOPe) scheme to exert more control over the election process. But this year, State Senator Mark Obenshain is counting on the bitter Cruz Clingers […]

Did Russia Influence America’s Election? Didn’t Obama Try to Influence Brexit and Israel?

There is no proof that Russia had anything to do with hacking the Democrat’s emails. Yet the Democrats are asserting over and over that Putin was to blame for Hillary’s loss. The NY Times reported: WASHINGTON — President Obama said on Thursday that the United States would retaliate for Russia’s efforts to influence the presidential […]

What’s the Difference Between “Fake News,” Opinion and Spin?

So what is the difference between “Fake News,” opinion and spin? When you ponder that thought a while, the first thing that pops out at you is the term “Fake News.” The take away the left wants you to believe is that Fake is the same as False. So why not use the term “False […]

My Thoughts on the Virginia Trump Team Infighting and the 2017 Gubernatorial Race

I have been rather quiet of late, since Thanksgiving anyway. I had eye surgery the Monday after Thanksgiving which went quite well and have been taking a bit of a sanity break from politics the past couple weeks. Sometimes you just have to take a break to prevent burnout. It has been quite an eventful […]

President –Elect Trump hits just the right tone

I have marveled at the 24/7 news cycle and their often humorous efforts to “ make some news”, if they can’t find any, or when it’s a quiet 24 hour period.  This past week’s constant harping on how the Trump transition team was in meltdown is a case in point. One would think after the […]

A Wrap up on the 2016 Presidential Election Polls

I suppose I could start out by writing “I was right and the polls were wrong.” But I won’t. That would be gloating. However, I spent a lot of time telling people the polls were wrong. That they were over sampling Democrats and often under sampling Independents (not to mention Republicans). Also, the narrative that […]

The Left has Brainwashed their Voters. Talk About the Party of Hate! Call in the Shrinks!

The Democrats have spent a lot of time and money in this election pushing a message of hate to “energize” their base. Eight years ago, they didn’t need to do that because Barack Obama was billed as the positive candidate for change. Of course they still did their best to demonize the opposition in both […]

Larry Sabato’s Final Electoral Vote Prediction: Hillary 322, Trump 216. Dems Win Senate

Why do the news outlets continue to put people like Larry Sabato on TV as if his predictions were grounded in bedrock? I believe Larry Sabato should have his crystal ball checked for cataracts, something I am very familiar with. But even I saw the Trump Train rolling. Bad boy, Larry. Our Final 2016 Picks […]

I Love Trump’s Picks: Reince Priebus Chief of Staff and Stephen Bannon as Strategist

I am no fan of Reince Priebus. And I believe that during the Republican Primary he was not always fair to Donald Trump. Trump received extra scrutiny on singing the pledge that he would support the nominee. Not so much because Priebus gave a rip, but because the rest of the candidates feared a Trump […]

TEMPER YOUR EXCITEMENT WITH A DOSE OF POLITICAL REALITY

Not having got much sleep last night, allow for some misspelling and or typo’s as I bang away on the keyboard in a coffee reduced stupor. The “ chance” that President –Elect Trump represents is just that, a chance to reshuffle the deck, starting with a quiet and diplomatic removal of Paul Ryan and Mitch […]

President Elect Trump, I Like the Sound of that!

I got on the Trump Train early on. I wasn’t alone, but often felt the isolation from my friends who were supporting someone else in the Primary. And I believed that not only could Donald Trump win the primary, but he could also defeat Hillary Clinton. If I had a dollar for every Republican that […]

Dirty Job’s Mike Rowe, Voting, and the Work Ethic

Photo by USFWS/Southeast I recently saw Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs) on Fox and Friends in a brief segment regarding, I believe, a Facebook post he made on the current election insofar as voting.

Republicans Are Losers; Ever Wonder Why?

Photo by JBrazito Republicans cannot understand why they lose. The reason is, they are not republicans. And they keep returning to disingenuous types like the Bushes or the Cheneys or the Gringrichs or the Jaffas-revised-history-theory-types ad neocon ad nauseam for their candidates to boot. They suffered themselves 30 years ago to the hoisting of Ronald […]

Another Bonus Boondoggle, Another Bonus March?

In 1932 veterans gathered in Washington in protest over bonuses owed (but not yet due) earned as a result of service in WWI. The bonuses were actually to come due in 1945, but due to the Great Depression (caused by the government) most of these men were out of work and strained to the limits […]

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
