DEMOCRATS NEED TO CONSIDER…WHAT if their CANDIDATE WINS? THEY DO have an ALTERNATIVE: ROBERT SARVIS!

Tonight is yet another election night in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  Like eclipses, elections occur with regularity every year. This is the primary for the Democrats and while there is no primary for governor (It should be Chap Petersen but I can’t get everything I want…) there are two candidates for each – Lieutenant Governor: […]

IS CHAP PETERSEN more of tha TEA PARTY DARLING than GOVERNOR McDONNELL? Only ONE THING for the GOVERNOR to DO!

I get a lot of emails from patriots and tea party leaders and maybe a few wannabes, too.  But I was surprised when I got sent a talking point from a leading tea party patriot with this in it: Quote Democrat Chap Petersen who voted against the bill: “a grotesque combination of tax cuts, tax […]

LOOKS LIKE the APPELLATE DEFENDER bill (Senate Bill 738) will go to SENATE COURTS COMMITTEE next week!

I have written several times about the restoration of the Appellate Defender’s office in Virginia.  The Indigent Defense Commission had to abolish the office due to budget cuts. Now you can do something about it!  Email your senator if you are in his or her district (especially the Republicans!) or can if a Virginia voter, […]

WHY the TEA PARTY in VIRGINIA should SUPPORT the APPELLATE DEFENDER BILL sponsored by SENATOR PETERSEN!

People might laugh at this idea, but there are at least three good solid reasons why the Tea Party (I am a member of my local Tea Party group – the Mechanicsville Tea Party!) should support the initiative that Senator Chap Petersen has introduced on the Appellate Defender’s (more details here!) office: 1.  The Tea […]

BREAKING NEWS: MY NEW FAVORITE DEMOCRAT is VA SENATOR CHAP PETERSEN!

As my readers know my Favorite Democrat was Rep. Heath Shuler of NC, the former Redskins and Saints QB, and conservative member of the House.  I even nominated Rep. Shuler for President!

NOW I CAN TALK ABOUT IT! SUPPORT SEN. CHAP PETERSEN’s budget amendment establishing an APPELLATE DEFENDER’S OFFICE!

I hinted that there was news on the Appellate Defender’s Office front.  Now I can openly discuss it! Senator Chap Petersen of Fairfax has introduced a budget amendment (here it is!) to reestablish an Appellate Defender’s Office in this Commonwealth.  It’s a tiny office at first, not even one quarter the size of the criminal […]
