Thanks to the GOP, Single Payer May Be our Best Hope for Controlling Health Care Costs

If you have been paying attention to the Obamacare debacle, it would seem that impotent Republicans have backed us into a corner with their failure to lead on the high cost of medical care. Note that I didn’t write the “high cost of insurance”. Health Insurance is simply a reflection of the high cost of […]

TO SOLVE A PROBLEM SOCIETY MUST FIRST FACE IT

Entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicare are driven by demographics and longevity factors, which we can do little about. All those babies born after WW II are now reaching retirement age. Some 10,000 turn 65 each day and this continues for the next 16-17 years. Means testing and significant structural changes to the programs […]

SINGLE PAYER IS COMING—WE’VE OURSELVES TO BLAME

Promises to repeal and replace the A.C.A ( ObamaCare) is clearly in trouble and whatever emerges from this mess will be a far cry from the solemn pledges Republicans have made for the last 8 years. Stop the presses—politicians lying.  It is however a tad disingenuous to put it entirely on the backs of republicans […]

It’s Shameful, Really Shameful for AG Herring to Run Ads That Disparage Lawyers!

September 16, 2017

I was appalled to hear on my television the Mark Herring ad criticizing GOP nominee John Adams for the defense of various corporate entities:   Now I have commented on this before.  And it is shameful for a fellow lawyer to play to anti-lawyer bigotry (and yes I called a Republican on this too) about […]

The REAL Question That Should Be Asked About the East Lansing Farmer’s Market Matter

September 11, 2017

I had read several months ago about the family farm in Michigan banned by the City of East Lansing from selling produce at what appears to be a city-owned (certainly city-run) farmer’s market.  Here is the website of the City of East Lansing Farmer’s Market. Here is the gist of the controversy from the Detroit […]

Maybe, but probably not the Last Word on the Convention of States

September 8, 2017

Many comments have come to the blog on the Article V Convention of States.  I hope they are right – that we can take back our nation with a convention. But I think a coalition of liberals and establishment Republicans will hijack the convention and might foist a new document on us with a new […]

August 28, 2017

Sometimes you got to seek your chances… AND …sometimes you got to use the chances that come to you!  And this is one of those times.  See this presser from the Virginia GOP in support of AG candidate John Adams (let’s emphasize part of this in italics, the bold is in there): Mark Herring Opposes […]

It appears it is really gonna happen:  NO NHL players in the Olympic Games in South Korea 2018.  Here’s some confirmation: Now some background for my new readers from a prior Sanders blog post: One of the most clever (because of its radicalism) strategies of William Lloyd Garrison and the abolitionists was the adoption of […]

What Should be a libertarian Response to the Pipeline Issue?

August 25, 2017

I was pondering the pipeline issue from a libertarian perspective. Apparently, there are two views on this question and it seems driven more by so-called global warming/anti-fracking agitation and concern for disturbing of pristine conditions.  From the Southern Environmental Law Center: Rivers, streams and forests of the central Appalachian Mountains are in the crosshairs of […]

A Second New Birth – perfecting our union as one people by Guest Blogger Gil Berger

August 25, 2017

A Second New Birth – perfecting our union as one people. It was the intent of our Nation’s Founders in the years following the American Colonial Revolution to “form” a more “perfect union.” Although the union at the time of its first birth was not perfect, the establishment of a constitutional, democratic-republic was a great […]

To the Editor: Why Should ‘Textbook Funds’ be diverted to school Administrative Salaries? We enjoyed yet another ‘spirited’ discussion during the KWBOS Work Session of Monday Aug. 14th; with focus on the use of ‘State Textbook Funds’ to pay a 2% wage increase for the King William County Schools Administrative Staff, NOT for our classroom […]

Confederate Statues and Carvings are Works of Art

August 23, 2017

I don’t think art is elite or mysterious. I don’t think anybody can separate art from politics. The intention to separate art from politics is itself a very political intention. – Ai Weiwei, Chinese artist. Art can take many forms, sizes and shapes and comes in the form of sound, painting, sculptures, the written word, […]

August 19, 2017

Breitbart is reporting that there are not one, not two but now three efforts to collect signatures or other political support for an independent California (Sandy’s position on Calexit:  “Don’t let the door hit you on the way out!”) but this third one reveals a compelling reason why conservatives must avoid like poison any effort […]

MISPLACED COMPASSION & EMPATHETIC ENABLERS YIELDS WHAT WE ARE WATCHING

August 15, 2017

When one examines the photographs of the protestors in Charlottesville and last night’s protests in Richmond it just might pay to ask the question—who are these aggrieved young people taking to the streets for reasons that seem somewhat removed from anything that someone so young could have even possibly experienced yet ? They are far […]

Democrat Northam May Do More to Unite Virginia Republicans than RPV’s Whitbeck Ever Will

July 24, 2017

The Republican Party is a mess in Virginia. As Republicans, we have always been good at finding those things that divide us, magnifying those divisions, and sitting around in a circular firing squad while weak and unqualified Democrats clean our clocks on election day.
