Veterans Groups Shun Tim Kaine and Flock to George Allen in Va Senate Race

As a Navy Veteran it is not hard to understand why my fellow Vets would back George Allen. Allen is the Veteran’s candidate of choice because he is right on so many issues facing Veterans today.

Obama Jobs Plan: Best Educated Unemployment Lines in History!

If you missed the big speech President Obama has been promising to deliver on jobs, let me give you the short version: Tax, tax tax. Spend, spend, spend. Tax the rich, hire more teachers, build roads and extend unemployment benefits. Oh, and if you have any ideas like smaller government or less government spending, he […]

House Dems Return To Pass Another Spending Bill, Bailing Out Teachers Unions

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called members of the House of Representatives back to Washington from their districts today to pass what the Democrat leadership considers a priority—a $26 billion bailout for teachers unions and spendthrift state governments. This is, of course, on top of recent spending on bailouts, the massive, unpopular health care bill, unemployment […]

Obama’s Audacious, Hypocritical Attack On Unemployment Benefits Is Completely Off Base

This morning, President Obama went to the podium in the Rose Garden to accuse Senate Republicans of blocking an extension of unemployment benefits. USA Today writes, “A Republican filibuster that has three times blocked the extension ‘reflects a lack of faith in the American people,’ Obama said. ‘They’re not looking for a handout. They desperately […]

The cynicism of Democrats and the Obama administration grows ever more audacious with each new proposal they take advantage of a crisis to push. It’s well known that White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel subscribes to a philosophy of what he once described as, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” […]

Census Jobs Falsely Boost Employment Numbers

A job is a job, right? Wrong. When it is a government job, it is paid for by taxpayers. When it is a temporary job like Census work, it is nothing more than a constitutionally unfunded mandated to count citizens we already know about, paid for with money we don’t have in order to allow […]

Virginia Democrats Seek To Increase Virginia Budget Shortfall By Accepting Trojan Horse From Washington

Virginia Democrats are simply wrong about the Commonwealth accepting the Obama unemployment stimulus money. Taking this money means Nancy Pelosi and President Obama get to rewrite Virginia Laws as part of the deal. The strings attached to the Obama and Pelosi money will require a massive increase in benefits, a major extension to the length […]

McDonnell Vindicated In Turning Down $125 Million From Stimulus For Unemployment Benefits

Bob McDonnell and Virginia Republicans are now completely vindicated for turning down the $125 million in Federal stimulus money to expand unemployment benefits. Taking the Federal dollars required states to increase the unemployment benefits paid out weekly, extend the length of time one may draw benefits from 26 weeks to 59 weeks. It also added […]
