Sports Hall of Fame Bill before Senate Finance Wednesday February 10!

Our next chance to kill the takeover of the private Sports Hall of Fame now rests with the Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday, February 10 at 9 am.

Here is who is on Finance:

Senate Finance


Norment (Co-Chair), Hanger (Co-Chair), Howell, Saslaw, Lucas, Newman, Ruff, Wagner, McDougle, Vogel, Carrico, Alexander, Obenshain, Barker, Dunnavant

So you can and should contact them and let them know (politely!) how you feel.  Tricia Stall already did it and even quoted from my blog post on this!  Thanks Tricia!

    This provides a classic text book example of who needs run out of office if they support this bill.

    The Patriot movement does this every year, runs down to Richmond when the G.A convenes with a laundry list of bills they support or oppose instead of razor focus on 2-3 that we can either defeat or pass.

    Any legislator who supports tax dollars going to support this sports hall of SHAME should be ridiculed, harassed and publically shamed by each of the various TEA Party groups with any & every means available.

    The notion that we should treat them with some civil tongue is another absurdity. What is it that allows your children and grandchildren’s future to be stolen and not be damn mad about it ? It is this very type of crony capitalism and lobbying by large money donors that drives bad legislation and the debt. If they gave a hoot about our opinions bills like this would be killed in committee before they have a tiny chance of any passing. Instead they bend themselves into pretzels trying to rationalize that a bill like this has some economic value for citizens of Virginia.

    It is the legislators that breath life into this absurdity that must be hung out and ridiculed ,shamed until they decide the bill isn’t worth the cost they will personally pay, or simply leave office.

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