Virginia store closes for a day
to 'mourn the loss of America'

Washington Times, by David Sherfinski

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/8/2012 2:21:50 PM

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 closed my mind...to liberals. And I've closed my ears...to Obama.

From now on, both will be greeted with either the mute button on the remote,the volume control on the radio or the plugs in my ears.

Ahhhh, blessed peace...

What do you expect with all of northern VA dependent on the Federal Govt for their payrolls? The last time I heard the count in DC was 91% for The Child.

Good for them; according to their website, it looks like a lovely store. Shame on Virginia for also adding Kaine to our misery.

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.

From a review of the book, "The Bedford Boys" -- "The small town of Bedford, Virginia, lost 19 boys on D-Day alone and three more before World War Two ended."

More dead on D-Day than any comparably-sized town in America.

The nearby D-Day Memorial is well worth seeing.

We're at the least very, very near a tipping point, IMHO.

"There is sobbing of the strong,
And a pall upon the land;
But the People in their weeping
Bare the iron hand;
Beware the People weeping
When they bare the iron hand."

#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

Lyon's Jewelers, Bedford, Virginia

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.

Sorry, be ready and be armed.

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.

Ed Snowden, Russian TV star,
hands Putin a propaganda coup
Fox News, by Howard Kurtz    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/18/2014 7:28:50 AM     Post Reply
What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

Detroit bailout plans just paper over
the problem with more money

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Fox News Poll: Voters say Obama covering

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

Disputed Call: Obama Tries to Shrug
Off House Leader´s Public Rebuke

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

As everyone knows, Brandeis publicly announced that they would award Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary doctorate--and then, under siege by nearly 30% of their professors, and by thousands of their own students, they publicly disinvited Hirsi Ali. This campaign was orchestrated by the Muslim Student Association and by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization which is the American face of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Someone sent author Naomi Wolf a copy of my latest article about this scandal: “Brandeis Feminists Fail the Historical Moment.” It was my response to Brandeis’s shameful dis-invitation of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

F. Reid Buckley, a novelist, columnist, founder of a school of public speaking and, in family lore, the most literary of Aloise and William F. Buckley Sr.’s 10 children, including former Senator James L. Buckley and the conservative commentator William F. Buckley Jr., died on Monday in hospice care in Columbia, S.C. He was 83. The cause was cancer, his son William Huntting Buckley said. Mr. Buckley had lived in Camden, S.C., since the early 1970s. He was often mistaken for his brother William, the founder of the conservative magazine National Review. The brothers not only looked alike. They also shared political

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
