Virginia's 13 electoral votes went to President Obama for the second straight election, and the proprietor of a store in the south central city of Bedford is not hiding his dismay. Lyons Jewelers hung up multiple signs on the windows of the shop indicating the shop would not be open for business Wednesday, including one saying the store was closed to "mourn the loss of the America that our forefathers endowed to us," WDBJ reported. "Lyons will reopen tomorrow to continue the fight against a president who seeks my demise" and "Shame on VA & USA" read two other signs.
I've started in my own small way as well. I have some work I need done around the house. I was going to call a contractor, but have instead decided to hire an unemployed (but respectable) local guy to do the work "under the table". No tax money will be going to the Feds or the Commonwealth, or permit fees to the township. Starve them.
all of this (politics and even caring) is over for me. we are all stuck with obama for four more years (and maybe forever if he doesn't want to leave) and massachusettes is stuck with elizabeth warren, a hypocrite, liar, and divider. i doubt i'll even frequent this site very often. i'll be reading books, listening to music and trying to live out my last years as healthy as i can be since there won't be any help for me anyway. 3 million less votes for romney than mccain. a tragedy, a travesty and sick making.
The last American to depart will please turn out the light. But put the key under the mat, another patriot may come along in a few years. Eternal is the hope that someone will grow a pair and impeach the child.
#15 Thanks for remembering the Bedford Boys and their small town. (It was named Liberty until the name was changed to Bedford 'cause it is the county seat of Bedford County.) My ancestors....back to one who was in the War of 1812....are buried there. Another is buried in France where he died in 1915!!! in the Canadian Army.
I am a gov't contractor. I can't believe how many people here in NOVA voted to lose their jobs. But Bedford is not in NOVA. It is a beautiful small town, probably conservative. Look them up, T. Jefferson's summer home is there, as well as the D-Day memorial, and more.
When I was 18 I RAN across the river fron Maryland to Virginia and NEVER looked back. Even then I knew instnctively where I belonged. That was 30 years or so ago. Being originally from WV I had a sense of what MD was becoming.
I've talked to many people over the years and it comes down to this. Yankees ( Libs/progeessives or what ever their current moniker) are like locusts. They invade and use up whatever wealth/prosperity is available. They take over the court systems they can to infuse their corruption in and move on to the next unsusspecting town/ city and start all over again.
Watch out Al, ms, mo, ga etc., you're next! They'll start in the coastal towns first cause they love the clean pristine beaches w/ the warm weather and ocean breezes. It'll be a while before they work their way inland.... too hot for their pansyasses. But mark my word the locusts are headed you wayif not already initiating a stronghold. Hold your 2nd Amend rights at all costs. Just look at what's happening up north. They're going to be running (read ruinning) the south.
If TX begins sessation, which was negotiated in their constitution the dominoes will begin to fall. Be ready ae armed.nd b

The start of a list of conservative-owned businesses which conservatives should patronize.
I will contact the Tea Party organizations to start a national list and state lists of "red"-owned businesses. We temporarily live in two states, and the second one has gone red. Thankfully, we are retiring to a blue state in the near future.
God Bless Texas! I just hope a WV birth cert will get me and my family in. I can shoot like an ace, grow and can any food and otherwise preserve food. Have a 6+ ft knitting macnine and a whole set of tools to machine/ weld metal. More tools and abilities than I can list here. One more thing, I have NOTHING BUT original seeds that will reproduce clean usable seeds for an eternity of food. I am more than willing to pass on my knowledge to younguns willing to learn I'd even trade teaching my knowledge In ifor gun cleaning lessons. We're survalists. BY GOD's grace we'll be the ones "left behind" to fight with God's Angels. Not something I'm lookibg forward to, but like my son and all who volunteered to serve, I won't xismiss the call.
I know it's painful, but just realize this. Ovomit sets the stage for the return of the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings. Look up, in the end the Earth will be made new and we will live with Christ Forever.
Major U.S. cellphone providers received more than $20 million from law enforcement agencies in conjunction with more than 1.1. million user information requests in 2012, according to documents released Monday by Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass. Five of the seven companies queried offered precise or ballpark figures for the revenue they received from law enforcement in 2012. AT&T said it received $10,298,000, T-Mobile USA said approximately $11 million, Verizon Wireless said less than $5 million, U.S. Cellular said $241,000 and C Spire said $55,000.
NEW DELHI— The Dalai Lama will not attend memorial services for fellow Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nelson Mandela in South Africa, where the Buddhist spiritual leader has twice been unable to obtain a visa, a spokesman said Monday. Tenzin Takhla gave no specific reason for the Dalai Lama missing the memorial service in Johannesburg and funeral in Mandela´s hometown, saying only that "logistically it´s impossible at this time." The Dalai Lama — based in the Indian hill town of Dharamsala since he fled China in 1959 — was welcomed to South Africa in 1996 and met with Mandela when he was South
Newspaper editors typically operate behind the scenes, overseeing reporters inside the newsroom and outside the spotlight. But since Ricardo Baca was named the marijuana editor of The Denver Post last month, he has been celebrated across the globe. He has appeared on CNN and “The Colbert Report.” Long-lost high school acquaintances have surfaced, with one inviting him to his friend’s basement for a smoke. Emails have flooded in from freelancers and readers, offering up their expertise on the subject matter. “We’re taking an extremely credible, professional approach to this,” Mr. Baca said. “I was surprised that it was such an immediate punch
There has been much ado about MSNBC anchor Martin Bashir´s contemptible attack on Sarah Palin, which has now resulted in Bashir resigning from the left wing network. But to those of us who write from the right his remarks are anything but unique. Despicable remarks are hurled at us all the time and the only difference about the Bashir flap is that ours usually come anonymously via email or snail mail. In my experience, the most hateful responses I´ve ever received are for columns addressing either gay rights or radical Islam. In 2007, I wrote a column for the New York
4 Things the MSM Won’t Tell You About Obama’s Inequality Speech: Now that the excitement has died down You have to admire President Obama for choosing to give a speech declaring that the fight against “growing inequality”–specifically economic inequality–is “the defining challenge of our time” and the “focus” of “all our efforts”–given that: a. Five years into his presidency he so far hasn’t done anything to stop growing income inequality–the problem has gotten worse on his watch. b. He doesn’t have any proposals (“It’s time to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act”) that come close to solving the problem as he defines it.
I’ve never been flogged in the public square, but now I have a rough idea what it’s like. On Thursday, Harvey Weinstein, the US distributor of the Judi Dench-Steve Coogan film “Philomena,” placed a full-page, color attack ad in The New York Times that screamed my name in blood-red letters. “The New York Times, Los Angeles Times and USA Today ALL PRAISE ‘PHILOMENA’ WITH A 92 % CERTIFIED FRESH SCORE ON Rotten Tomatoes,” read the ad. “BUT THE NEW YORK POST’S KYLE SMITH HAS A DIFFERENT OPINION. ‘ANOTHER HATEFUL ATTACK ON CATHOLICS.’ ” The ad (now brightening the wall over
Dayna Morales, the server who claimed last month to have been left a note about her “lifestyle” instead of a tip, was fired from her restaurant Sunday, and is reportedly returning the donations she received in the outpouring of sympathy after her story went viral. Morales, an openly-gay server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, NJ became a cause celebre after she posted a receipt informing her she had not been tipped because of her lifestyle. But her story began to unravel when the couple who left the receipt disputed Morales’ story, and provided bank statements showing they had in fact tipped
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a last minute decision not to participate in a memorial service for the late South African President Nelson Mandela, despite having notified the South African government that he would attend the event. The decision was made in light of the high transportation costs resulting from the short notice of the trip and the security required for the prime minister in Johannesburg. The Prime Minister’s Office found that the trip would have cost roughly 7 million shekels ($2.4 million) – 2.8 million shekels for chartering a private El Al plane and a further 3.2 million shekels for
