Hold the Celebration: The GOP Got By on the Skin of Their Teeth – We Need New Ideas

I went to the Buddy Fowler Victory Party in Ashland Tuesday evening with excitement (It was looking good the Del. Fowler) but also trepidation.  Gecker was ahead – was it 3000 or 40o0 votes?  Powhatan was out but how many votes can that be?  Will it be enough?  I knew little about the Hal Parrish […]

WOW! LIBERTARIAN SARVIS polls NEARLY ELEVEN PERCENT in the BEARING DRIFT POLL! TEN in WASHPO poll!

This election could easily turn into Minnesota 1998 with just a few breaks.  Several polls show that the Sarvis support is not an anomaly but seems to be between 8 and 11 percent.  This is amazing considering that the Old Dominion is averse to third parties. In the Bearing Drift poll – Sarvis is at […]

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

I get a parade of material from the state GOP and the Cuccinelli campaign virtually every day detailing the suspected ethical lapses of the Democrat, Terry McAuliffe.  EB-5 visa program, outlandish lies about Cuccinelli, alleged laundering of campaign contributions, etc. So I ask my Democrat readers (It may be presumptuous but the writers at the […]

Washington Post Sold to Libertarian. Will it Make a Difference?

Amazon founder and top dog Jeff Bezos has bought The Washington Post. And he is reported to be a Libertarian. That will be an interesting dynamic to say the least. While Bezos supports gay “marriage” and often donates to Democrats, he also donates to Republicans and has fought the “tax the rich” mentality. Tree based […]

GREAT REVIEWS for COPPERHEAD the MOVIE! GO SEE IT and find out the TRUTH about LINCOLN!

Copperhead the movie, in its first week in Richmond, is garnering nice reviews from several sources. Here’s the Washington Post’s take on Copperhead: The story offers uncommon insights on the endlessly parsed period in history, but its execution sometimes falls short. Both the production quality and the persistent, sentimental soundtrack create a made-for-TV feel. And […]

I have a few thoughts about the big game Sunday night. 1.  No more halftime shows similar to what I saw (or more accurately had to not see) Sunday night.  The Beyonce show was embarrassing for me to think that many children saw it.  For many kids, it is a special privilege to watch the […]
