Bull Elephant Attacks Veteran Navy SEAL on Memorial Day Weekend. For Shame!

As a US Navy Veteran, I learned long ago that Navy SEAL’s are the best of the best. The dedication and determination needed to go through the training alone makes them stand out head and shoulders above the rest. And I found SEAL’s to be some of the most honorable and forthright humans on this […]

Musicians Cheapen their Art with Today’s Partisan Political Rhetoric

I grew up and lived in an era of massive changes in America and the world. The year I was born, 1954, saw the inception of McCarthyism, Brown vs Board of Education case (segregation of schools), Ellis Island was closed, Operation “Wetback” began to send 4 million illegal aliens back to Mexico, “Under God” was […]

Relax Liberals! Trump is Just Cleaning Up Obama’s Messes

For eight years we have suffered through unarguably the worst administration in US history. As Barack Obama came into office, the wars in the middle east were won and handed to him on a silver platter. All Obama had to do was keep a military presence until the new governments in Iraq and Afghanistan were […]

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 […]

August 15, 2017

At last nights B.O.S work session Supervisor Hansen asked a simple question regarding the schools failing to pass S.O.L muster last year on Math and English as a second language .  Superintendent Dr. David White refused to answer Hansen’s specific question as to last year’s results, insisting on the V.D.O.E rule that allows for a […]

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

August 10, 2017

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 […]

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. Will Ralph Northam be the next clueless Democrat to sneak into […]

TO SOLVE A PROBLEM SOCIETY MUST FIRST FACE IT

July 24, 2017

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 […]

Yes, Virginia [Taxpayer], we are all Slumlords. Maybe We Can Stop It.

July 17, 2017

I decided after seeing and reading this article (here’s the follow up article) in the Richmond Times-Dispatch on public housing that I had to contend for the faith – the libertarian faith that is – anew: Richmond public housing agency weighing ‘bold move’ to boost financial stability I was hoping the “bold move” was to […]

SINGLE PAYER IS COMING—WE’VE OURSELVES TO BLAME

July 17, 2017

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 […]

YES, Cliff Hyra Should Be Invited to the Virginia Bar Association Debate!

July 15, 2017

I just found out the other day that the Virginia Bar Association – the first organization for lawyers in the Commonwealth of Virginia, that VBA, has a debate between (should be among as I will state further below) two of the candidates for governor – the former lobbyist GOP hopeful Ed Gillespie and the medical […]

Could Libertarian Cliff Hyra Affect the Governor’s Race? It Would Help If he Could Raise a Cool Million Dollars? Yes and Even More!

July 10, 2017

On July 6 at 10 am in downtown Richmond, Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Cliff Hyra,  the Mechanicsville IP lawyer, kicked off his campaign. I was intrigued by the A. Barton Hinkle article in both the Times-Dispatch and here at Reason.  Hinkle suggests that Hyra could have a huge impact on the race. Still, Hyra is performing […]

Does Sandy the Blogger have the Attention Span of a Gnat?

July 10, 2017

I can’t seem to win for losing in this election.  I write one article trying to help Ed Gillespie a bit but has a lot of info on Libertarian Cliff Hyra (who I admire very much) and I get attacked by Hyra supporters!  And my post yesterday on Senator Jill Vogel gets these two comments […]

Blogger Sandy Ran Into whom at the Tomato Festival? Jill Vogel?

July 8, 2017

I had a very thrilling conversation with state senator and Lieutenant Governor candidate Jill Vogel and she agreed with me about the need for indigent defense reform – a statewide public defender system.  I explained to her that the crazy quilt of jurisdictions verges of unequal justice under law. Yes Jill gets it!  She understood […]

Aren’t you Glad Virginia Did NOT get Sucked Into This?

July 8, 2017

Looks like the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame Museum in Portsmouth will close its doors and apparently sell the building: The Virginia Sports Hall of Fame stopped waiting for its turnstile count to increase. Not enough people came to see the exhibits in Portsmouth. They will relocate to where folks already congregate. The VSHOF closed […]

More on the PH TP Meeting Last Week

July 3, 2017

I am thankful for this comment from Hanover County Libertarians for Hyra and I have reached out to him/her.  I hope he/she will contact me. Mr. Sanders: I counted 16 people in the room. Half of them didn’t live in the 12th District so Senator Sioban Dunnavant wasted her time driving to Beaverdam which is […]

Conservatism is like Art. It is in the Eye of the Beholder – or the Politician!

June 28, 2017

What is art? Is a Crucifix in urine art? I do not think so. In fact, I find it offensive to call it art. What is a Conservative? Is a big government lobbyist like Ed Gillespie a Conservative? I do not think so. In fact, I find it offensive to call him a Conservative. A […]

June 28, 2017

The Christian Taliban “God Squad” have managed to chase more Republicans away from the idea of Conventions as opposed to primaries as the way we select our nominees. Just who are these Christian Taliban “God Squad” folks? They are a small but vocal minority of the Republican Party who fancy themselves as the only “true” […]
