Uranium mining issue plagued by myths and misconceptions

Lt. Gov. Bolling swung though Pittsylvania County on Friday, 14 December, to announce his opposition to lifting the “ban” on uranium mining at the Cole’s Hill property. Sadly, he seems to be more concerned with the myths and fears surrounding uranium than he is in the facts: “…even though two well respected organizations have completed… More Uranium mining issue plagued by myths and misconceptions

The Honorable Pat Mullins Chairman Republican Party of Virginia 115 East Grace Street Richmond, Virginia 23219 Dear Chairman Mullins, On August 20th, 2012 the Washington Post launched a scurrilous, yet sadly typical, attack on Republican U.S. Senate nominee George Allen.

Obama just scorned the Republic our Founders gave us

Well, let me distinguish between professional politicians and the public at large. The public is not paying close attention to the ins and outs of how a Treasury option goes. They shouldn’t. They’re worrying about their family; they’re worrying about their jobs; they’re worrying about their neighborhood. They’ve got a lot of other things on… More Obama just scorned the Republic our Founders gave us

Thoughts on the END OF THE WORLD™ that, well, wasn’t

It has been rather amusing – and somewhat painful – to watch all the sturm und drang that Harold Camping’s prediction of the world’s end on 21 May stirred up. I wasn’t too surprised when the media et al. hyped it because that’s what they do – and God forbid that they should bring in,… More Thoughts on the END OF THE WORLD™ that, well, wasn’t

In preparation for Resurrection Day (also known as Easter *grinz*)

You know, technology can be a pain and it can be dangerous – but it can also be a blessing. I was listening to my Christian “channel” on Pandora today, and a song by Shane and Shane came up that was PERFECT for today: “Before the Throne of God Above.” Before the throne of God… More In preparation for Resurrection Day (also known as Easter *grinz*)

Bob Marshall and Jim McKelvey (former candidate for the Republican nomination for the House in VA-5),moderated by Pat McSweeny, and I didn’t post anything about it… It was quite interesting, and I wish I had video, but my battery wasn’t properly charged (*facepalm* –… More Ready for Day Two of the Virginia Tea Party Convention

It’s rather amazing to find such idiocy on a casual search

I was poking around the Internet yesterday, looking at State parks in reasonable driving distance. We have a lovely RV that hasn’t been anywhere in too long, and I thought I’d look around and see if anything piqued my interest. I remember that may years ago we stayed in the general area of Phohick State… More It’s rather amazing to find such idiocy on a casual search

Obama is not operating on all cylinders

In declaring that it is time for Middle East peace “without preconditions,” President Obama used his speech to the U.N. General Assembly Wednesday to fire a warning at Israel that “America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.” Obama’s stark declaration, which drew applause, was coupled with a call for Palestinians to end… More Obama is not operating on all cylinders
