  • In Virginia, a Lot of White Women Voted for Anti-Choice Ken Cuccinelli

    This woman happily voted for Cuccinelli. He won married women by 9 percentage points.

    I would like a woman who was “afraid” of him to explain to me how it “empowers” her to butcher herself, put her life in danger doing so, kill a fetus and then live with it for the rest of her life?

    Anectdotal, but this morning at 7:30 in Loudoun, I did not see anyone take the proferred Dem sample ballot. I told the guy I would rather die. Other women waved it off as well.

    Four conservative women hid out in my federal government office bathroom in Prince William County to talk about the race. The mother of one had experienced malfunctioning voting machines that switched Cuccinelli votes to McAuliffe. She caught it and that machine was “retired from service to be re-calibrated.” I suggested to the others that they use paper ballots.

  • NBC/WSJ poll: Obama Approval Sinks to New Low (Personal approval under water at 41%)

    Spot on. Cuccinelli knows it, that’s why he won’t overspend.

    I was a poll watcher in Loudoun County (Northern) Virginia for 12 hours last November. People were being bussed in and walked through the polls. They could barely speak English and certainly couldn’t tell you their addresses. Which did not appear to be in the precinct where they showed up to vote. The Dem poll workers just smirked.

    We’re expected to navigate the tax code, but it’s too burdensome to produce picture ID?

    I remember. I just don’t see ANYONE who is willing to do anything about it. It reminds me of how Germany must have been circa 1933. I listened to Larry Kudlow on a drive home Saturday night and all he could do was yell and rant about Cruz and Lee and argue that we had to get back to, essentially, the status quo.

    There isn’t any legal fine print justifying brownshirts closing open air parks or failing to pay death benefits to war widows. The Pay Our Military Act was designed to pay those benefits. But the White House and DOJ ordered the Pentagon to “make things as painful as possible.” I do wonder how long people are going to put up with this.

  • Capitol a ghost town as reality of government shutdown sets in

    I agree that government workers should not be unionized. What is truly disgusting is the “100 percenters,” who are paid to work only on union business. They, like the government EEO offices - whose employees are paid by the government to intake, investigate and move EEO cases AGAINST the government through the pipeline - should be dumped.

    But this is what FDR, LBJ, Carter, Clinton - and now Obama - wanted. A permanent class of leftists populating the executive branch.

    The thing is, the most entrenched libs are the ones who are there declaring themselves “essential,” whether they are or not.

    The majority of federal workers ARE Obama supporters, most out of sheer ignorance., like the majority of the U.S. Population. (I won’t say U.S. voters or citizens, since from what I saw at the polls last November, many Obama voters weren’t eligible to vote where they voted, if at all.). A fraction of federal workers are hard-core, with the union “welfare queen” mentality. But many are subject to a collective bargaining agreement without being dues-paying members of the union.

    I’m not a fan of union agreements, but when you hear things like I heard yesterday, about a whole group of people being fired from a bank with no warning, some balance in what you can do to workers seems appropriate.

    Also, AFGE backed Hillary in 2008, so Obama doesn’t slobber over AFGE like he does over SEIU. AFGE backed themselves into a corner. Obama knows that like most lefty groups, they aren’t going to leave the Democrat Party. So he can treat AFGE like they’re a desperate girlfriend with low self-esteem. He only shows up when he wants something, and they give in.

    There is no indication that DoD civilians currently out of work due to the shutdown furlough will be paid for the time lost beginning yesterday. In fact, they were ordered to work yesterday morning to accomplish an orderly shutdown, but further ordered not to record their time for October 1. They may be paid later for October 1, but that is not certain.

    Thus far, DoD civilians have not been paid for the 6 days of administrative furlough that took place this summer as a result of the sequester.

    I am all for the active duty military being paid, because of the potential for them to be placed in harm’s way - even if they are not currently and may never have been in harm’s way - as well as because of the personal autonomy they forfeit in order to serve. But it is a fact that many active duty military are currently assigned to sit right next to civilian “chair warmers.” And many of those military members are rather concerned this morning about what they do not know and what is not going to get done, likely for many days to come. And if those civilians do come back, they will be expected to catch up on the backlog of work via night and weekend work that they do not record.

    Given the perverse nature of the current Senate, which thinks it has a political winner on its hands, this furlough may continue for a while.

    I’m not watching Fox anymore. I’m over it. The country went over the brink. Theres no more “hoping” for the election to bring us back to our senses. I wonder if their ratings have dropped since the election

  • McCain to pro-lifers: State your position, then ‘leave the issue alone’

    McCain should shut up and sit down on every issue except Benghazi. Stick to that, John. Better yet, get someone else besides you or Lindsey to be the point man.

    We women - who are not already doing so - need to step up and challenge other women when they babble about their “abortion rights”. I recently had That experience with a woman who claims to be a libertarian. She ranted at me that she - and single women in general - would not vote for the GOP because Republicans were against civil rights and abortion rights and wanted to overturn Roe. Overturning Roe is of course highly unlikely and would only return the issue to the states.

    I told her that women such as herself had no credibility as advocates for “rights” when they would not extend them to the most vulnerable, the unborn. And would instead vote for someone who - in The Illinois legislature - advocated that babies born alive after abortion should be left to die. I said that abortion benefits men, and damages women physically and emotionally, and that women should acknowledge as much to each other. We have to say this to these pro-choice women. Many of them take these positions because they want to fit in with other women. Challenge and ridicule them as hypocrites and see how firm their convictions are.

    I added that all these women ranting about rights actually wanted to give up their autonomy to the state - to pay for their abortions and birth control and everything else. To become “Julia.”. Which is the furthest thing from libertarian that you can get.

    So-called libertarians need to consider that their social liberal views will always overwhelm their supposed fiscally conservative views. The two cannot co-exist. Social liberalism is all about big government.

    And the mainstream media went down to King County to report on its alleged “racism”.

    We never hear about black racism against whites. I was hoping that one good thing would come from Obama’s 2008 election - that we could put away some of the racial tension in the US. That was a pipe-dream. Obama is a race and class baiter. In my experience working in a large, very diverse organization, many blacks have become overtly hostile towards whites in any type of authority, particularly since Obama’s re-election 2 weeks ago. Blacks are refusing to attend meetings, follow rules, or take training that everyone has to take. I see white supervisors afraid to address it, for fear of EEO charges being filed against them, which is only making it worse.

    The people I met whom the Romney campaign sent into Northern Virginia from Boston were kids. They’d admit that they didn’t know the area. But the Romney door knocking volunteers were pretty determined. And the only guy I’d seen around the area registering Obama voters was sitting at a table across the street from Whole Foods. The Obama GOTV didn’t make an impression on me AT ALL until I showed up to poll watch on election day.

    My experience was echoed by other poll watchers who called WMAL, a major DC radio station. They saw people who could not state their own address being “helped” by the poll workers. Is it 1234 Elm Street? They too believed people were being bussed in. They were registered or gave names of those who were registered.

    In VA, we have to report it to the state board of elections, which will decide whether it wants to ask the AG to investigate. He can’t do it on his own initiative. I’m going to report my experience.

    So true. I went to my doctor this week and she said that perhaps some of my past problems stemmed from taking digestive enzymes, which I had only begun in the past 2 weeks and which she confused with Probiotics. Actually, the enzymes have helped me a great deal.

    But whatever poison Big Pharma wants to dish out, that’s fine. Until the drug goes off the market for killing people. Then they say, Oh, that’s unfortunate.
