Just like 'ol Castro... If they disagree with you or do not sing your praises

If they disagree with you or do not sing your praises, just kick them off the plane. If they have a differing opinion than you, put a restraint on them. I suppose the Obamanites just figure that resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.

You may ask why it's important to get out there...

Because the competition already has...
Carl Jensen of South Riding started recieving mail from unions and Obama. As an undecided voter, he wondered why his mailing address was on any particular group's radar. Then he noticed something peculiar. The mail wasn't even addressed to him. It was addressed to Shashonia Gilliam. After sending the first couple of pieces away with the "Not at this Address"...
The mailings did not stop. Further investigation revealed that Ms. Gilliam actually has a residence in Oregon. How she found Mr. Jensen's address is still somewhat of a mystery, but his thoughts (and ours) immediately went to contacting the BOE to check out their voter rolls and find out who they have registered at the South Riding address. Suffice it to say they would not release that information to the local Party unit. So, I suppose that the lawyers retained by the McCain team may have some job security after all.

Further reflection on this matter makes many of us wonder: How many times has this action been repeated , and will it be investigated before the election?? Or is stealing elections becoming a normal occurence with Democrats?

UPDATE: Look , folks. I'm all for a totally fair election, and I'm prepared to live with the results of a contest that was conducted on the up and up. Then we have the reports of the idiots who purposely degrade that process start to roll in...
In Reston , there is an Election Official handing out "vote democrat flyers" with absentee ballots.
And in electronic voting machines, it appears that if you use the extra large font setting, The Republican candidate goes to a second or third page, thus forcing the voter to figure out the "scroll" function...opening the gate for more chances to hit the "touch" screen in a way that registers a vote for whoever was listed on that first page instead of the candidate that the voter actually wanted to choose.

As we approach the 72 Hour mark in this campaign....

It's time to spit, or pass the pot. We need boots on the ground at this very moment, people.
We cannot sit at home and "hope" that this goes our way. It requires those that want a better result to commit to time for the candidates.

As a wise man said: "There are three kinds of people. There are those that MAKE things happen, there are those who WAIT to see what happens, and there are those that WAKE UP and wonder what happened!

We all have to look inside and admit to ourselves which bunch we fit in with, or live with the results afterwards. There are needs for phone banks thru Tuesday. There are Precinct Walks every day including Tuesday. Please volunteer for an opportunity near you.

These elections do not "just happen". There are an awful lot of people who've stepped up to make things happen. The Sterling Office is abuzz with activity by people just like you. Will you be one of us? We need people to push right now. You can't wait till Tuesday, because trying to get a message out that day is too little , too late.

Log onto : and send us your info, and we'll put you to work in a precinct near you, and you'll be a part of the 72 Hour push, not just an observer on Election Day. .There is a huge difference.

Obama's full disclosure of the tax situation

Whether he would disclose it, or not....we will...
We know Sen Obama will raise taxes for those making more than $250k. He won’t tell you, however, that people earning less than $250k will also pay more as well. Here are 4 clear ways that he WILL make the middle class pay more Taxes!

1. He has stated that he WILL let the Bush Tax Cuts expire. This will cause ALL American’s to pay 2000 level taxes...which are higher than today at every Income Level.

2. Senator Obama has proposed lifting the $94,700 payroll cap to support Social Security, adding an additional 12.4 percent tax on every dollar earned above that cap -- and in spite of his promise, impacting all those who earn between $94,700 and $249,999.

3. He will raise capital gains taxes from 15 percent to 20 percent. He says he's aiming at "fat cats" who make above $250,000. However, while only 1 percent of Americans make a quarter-million dollars, roughly 50 percent of all Americans own stock – and while investments that are through IRAs, 401Ks and in pension plans are not subject to capital gains, those stocks in personal portfolios are subject to capital gains, no matter what the owner’s income is.

4. Senator Obama has promised to raise taxes on businesses -- and to raise taxes a lot on oil companies. From both theory and practice, I know what businesses do when taxes are raised. Corporations don't "pay" taxes -- they collect taxes from customers and pass them along to the government. This means that the people who Obama promised tax relief will pay more for goods and services instead of taxes.

Four clear ways that Sen Obama will NOT live up to his promise that people making less than $250k will not pay a penny more in taxes....this claim is just not true!

Read on....if nothing else, it will help you make an informed decision on Nov 4th.

The only other point to make is that history proves that lowering people's taxes and dropping the Capital Gains tax are a sure fired way to jumpstart the economy. JF Kennedy did so, and we rebounded from the start of a recession. Reagan did so, and we pulled out of the Carter tailspin.

Sarah the Barracuda in Leesburg!!

That's County Board of Supervisors Chairman Scott York (I) standing beside BroadRun District's Lori Waters (R). Eugene Delgaudio -Sterling (R)- was in the audience, and we chatted briefly.
Scott handled the opening at 9:00 and as an Independent, he endorsed McCain and Palin. Ms. Waters led us all in prayer after Scott's remarks. There was a rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, and a couple of other speakers, although I was trying to catch up to a couple of folks in the audience at around that time.
Sarah....The Barracuda.

Palin arrives on stage, waiting to be introduced. Tito "the builder" did the honors, so I'm sure that the Democrats are already busy mining for his personal info on a Government computer somewhere.

The attendance is good for a Monday Morning, especially with the first real cold front moving thru the crowd, dropping the temps from a mild 55 degrees to a chilly 40 degrees with wind. Because many had not brought heavier clothing, the crowd that toughed it out to see Palin began to leave immediately after she'd addressed the crowd. I took a decent coat...and even I was chilled by the weather bursting in. I did a rough count of approximately 4000 folks at somewhere near the end of the gate backlogs.
Due to the layout of this blog and my huge pictures... The last picture only seems to display about half of the "inner circle" (those VIP and activists who are the boots on the ground, house to house and phonebanking corps.) If you look at ther second Palin pic, there are actually three people standing to her left in the original picture....same thing.
The last pic in it's entirety... and reflecting a mere half of those in the stadium portion of the event. The microphone on stage is just visible in the far left of the pic, right under the star on the "Country First" banner.

Hell, everybody else did it....

So, I'm going to jump in to complete the pool out there.
My absolute favorite in polling is done by the Investor's Business Daily (which foretold the winner of the 2004 Presidential race by 3/10ths of ONE PERCENT). As far as polling goes, it doesn't get a whole lot closer than that, Ladies and Gentlemen. To put this in context, every other polling source (alright, to be fair...most of them) had Kerry up smartly going into the last 4 days.

Today, IBD has McCain and Obama neck and neck....both are just skirting the three percent over/under. 46.5 and 43.3 respectively. This was with 886 likely voters.

And today was the worst of the news in the past three days. The last survey to use 1060 likely voters was Oct. 23, where Obama had 44.8, and McCain showed a tight 43.7 trail. (That's ONE FRIGGIN POINT, ladies and gentlemen.)

Now, if you'll remember, I said Kerry was up going into the 2004 contest's last days.

Presidential Hopeful John Kerry Has a 5.3% Lead Over President George W. Bush According to Newly Released Results in WHYY West Chester University Poll.
Publication: PR NewswirePublication Date: 29-OCT-04

And finally, in past years, Ralph Nader has garnered up to 4% of the final vote. If and when his name appears on the 2008 ballot, will it pull the same support ?

But WAIT!!!!!!! It gets better!!!
Actually, there appears to be a simple methodical error in the polls, and we can actually quantify it and adjust for it. This error is the hang-up rate, i.e. people who refuse to participate in the polls. It is far higher this election than previously. This makes sense, after all, what do you do when you get junk phone calls? You tell them to pi$$ off and hang up. Now suppose, instead, it's a pollster, and you decide to participate. But then they tell you that they have 100 questions, and will you take 45 minutes to participate -- NOW, will you tell them to pi$$ off? Don't laugh, some of these polls are as bad as that. Specifically, the CBS/NYT poll asks 100 questions, and they consistently show a 12%-13% lead for Obama. It's pretty clear that they are measuring only those people who are willing to answer 100 questions. If you look at other polls, the trend is plain -- those polls which ask the fewest questions show the best results for McCain. So this is the systematic bias in today's polls -- they don't count people who won't particiate, and those people are overwhelmingly McCain voters. So, why has Obama's lead been increasing lately? Simply because people are losing their patience with the left-wing biased media, and are hanging up at an increased rate as the campaign progresses. And that's all it is, the hang-up rate, and not a swing to Obama at all. Simple, eh? Lastly, we can remove this bias by treating the hang-up rate as a certain percentage McCain vote, and seeing what hypothetical percentage yields consistency between the polls, if you add them in. My rough rule of thumb calculation shows 80% McCain, and does not include the "excess", that is, those voters who just hang up right away, regardless of how many questions the pollsters want to ask. This all makes sense, as with all the junk phone calls we get, people don't have the patience for telephone-led processes like they used to any more. It's like the old famous Willkie phone poll, which showed only how a systematic bias controlled the result, well, today's sytematic bias is the vastly greater hang-up rate, which are McCain voters overwhelmingly. Look for a decisive McCain win on November 4.

Posted at Ace Of Spades by a genius named "proxy" at October 26, 2008 04:58 PM
I fully think "proxy" is definitely onto something here.

And all this is absolutely lacking in a discussion of the "Bradley Effect" which I believe will actually set some networks back on their heels when they see just how far off their exit polls were from their realtime results.

Results for Oct. 27th indicate that Obama's lead has decreased from 3.2 to 2.8 undecided voters appear to be joinging McCain in larger displays.

October 29- Exactly 4 years to the day of Kerry's 5.3 Lead in the polls in 2004, and with 9.2% still undecided, Obama goes from 4.0 points up yeserday to a mere 3.0 points over McCain today. And the margin of error? +/-3 points...

October 30th... Obama is up today by 4.1%, and his people have already admitted their need for a 7% lead to overcome "Bradley's Effect". I think we're closing in Pennsylvania and leading in early voting in Florida.

The short case against Barack Obama

And then the long one.

First up is Capital Gains taxes. If these rates go to 30%, as Obama has indicated he will strive to achieve, you can kiss job creation goodbye. By trying to appeal to the job seekers and the working class by actively using Class Warfare, Obama can effectively curtail any new job creation with a single sweeping rise in Capital Gains taxes. Those that have the money actually do reinvest that money to make more money. One of the biggest side effects and benefits from them doing so is the creatiuon of jobs. These folks generally make 25% on their initial investment, but it's risky because of the high return. They could make the 25% ...or with equal ease, they could lose their initial investment. As if the stakes weren't already high enough, Obama could stifle all that activity by a rise to a 30% penalty for removal of those monies from protected areas ...immediately trouncing the 25% gamble that these folks already face.
In short, don't hate these folks for trying to make more money and providing employment for millions as they do very afraid when they decide not to gamble and just leave the money in the protected "floorboard cracks" as they acrue a modest 3 to 4% on what they already have.
And they're in a prime position to just leave it there until Obama is gone, which is exactly what will happen when he produces no jobs over his four year reign.
This is complicated by the view he holds on socialism... or "spreading the wealth around".
He's said he'll give 95% of folks a refund. Since 40% already get a refund, or better yet...don't even file a tax form, this amounts to wealth redistribution... again on the shoulders of those who provide the jobs in the first place.
JUST IN: an important confirmation about Obama and wealth redistribution. In this recording, from a 2001 call-in Public Radio talk show in Chicago, Obama (who was then a university lecturer) explains that the Civil Rights movement's primary shortcoming was that the litigation it pursued failed to address redistribution of wealth. This puts the lie to assertions such as the one made by General Powell that he is a moderate and does not intend to pursue such policies.

Has anyone ever had a poor person or one that makes a $100K household (that's Daddy AND Momma) earning give them a job? ...and mowing their grass once a week doesn't count.

Next up is his healthcare plan. What Hawaii learned sometime back as they presented a dead ringer for Obama's plan is that presented with those who pay for insurance, and those that recieve it free from the governent...those that previously paid for it would let their paid insurance go, and opt instead for the "free" coverage. This worked so well for Hawaii, that they actually halted the program after a mere 7 months, and it ended up severely in the red.

We continue with the intolerance of his campaign to hear dissenting views. They'd rather not be bothered with people who shoot legitimate holes in his plans, and they're ready to use the courts to shut those people up for good. There will be no freedom of speech under Obama, because his minions have already demonstrated that they're prepared to use Gestapo tactics against anyone who does not fall in line.

Further, Obama's standing as a legitimate candidate is in jeopardy due to the fact that he will not produce a birth certificate for inspection. Despite the fact that no trash can in Alaska has been left unturned, a simple request for a birth certificate and school records has never been provided.

If we go further, his associations with domestic terrorists (let's go further, and call them UNREPENTANT domestic terrorists) is of grave concern. If Obama claims the highest post in the Nation, a domestic terrorists will have the ear of a sitting President. This would have never been tolerated during the Bush years by the opposition, yet Obama is excused, and his minions are all too happy to explain it away.

And as the last issue I'll address (but not nearly completing a list of the deficient qualities of "the One") there is his uncanny ability to be all things to all people. Bill Clinton even had trouble with this one. Obama is smooth. But his record is thin. Very thin. Aside from writing a book or two, he has no accomplishments. He sat thru (and we mean SAT THRU) his Illinois Senate period, with 150 "present" votes. He has scarcely 134 days in the Senate before he began to manage his campaign.... He failed to come back to Washington to excercise his responsibilities as a sitting Senator, and his minions even poked fun at McCain for doing exactly that.
He failed to vote for the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac regulation asked for by McCain in May, 2006 (while Frank, Waters, Dodd, Schumer and others voted against it, Obama must have been hiding in the Cloak room... doing one better on his previous "present" votes.

The Obama camp is pretty clear on their vision for America

If you like throwing out everything that is America right now, and replacing it with rampant socialism.

A very well written piece that uses the words of the Obama supporters and associations to explain exactly why you WILL be taxed under Obama, and how he sees the world, and how he intends to change it. Trust me, America...after four years under the Obama Regime, you will be begging for another change. But by that point, it may be too late. The damage will be done, and there will be no fixing it with another election.
Look ...Carter made an inexpereinced decision on Iran (and who we'd support there ) way back in the late 70's. THAT MISTAKE is at the root of our problem with Iran even today, thirty years later. There was no "do-over", there was no reversing the damage. There are members of our armed services that died very recently because of Jimmy Carter's vision for Iran in 1977.

This guy needs his own show!!!

A good friend sent me the link to this guy's Youtube appearances.
Check him out. What a breath of fresh air.
You all knew that I want to look around in the Republican Party and see at least as many African-Americans in attendance as there are caucasions, right? We are the natural choice for those that want to break out of the shackles the Democrats want to keep them in.

And check the comments below the piece. There are links to some of his other pieces. This guy was destined to have his own show if he'd have been selling Obama.

We still need those phone banks manned. Two locations!!!

These final days are where the rubber hits the road people!!
This is obtainable. This is within reach!! It just takes manpower and enthusiasm.

We need volunteers for phone banks. You can call Melinda Davis in the Sterling location at (703) 340-0702, or e-mail her at The office in Sterling is located at 46950 Community Plaza, Unit 201 A, Sterling, VA.

For those in the West, or closer to Leesburg, call Ken Reid at (703) 779-8777 , or e-mail him atCouncilmanreid@FDAINFO.COM He is opening his office on an appointment basis to make phone banks available in Leesburg.

Senator Obama has a rally in Leesburg.

INTERESTINGLY, however, were the massive amount of Maryland and D.C. tags that lined every street that I traversed in my efforts to find a parking spot.
And then again, as I tried to navigate North on Rt. 15 towards Lovettsville that evening after the event. The road was all but choked with Maryland and D.C. tags.

Since all of Judy Feder's campaign money came from Montgomery County in the Socialist State of Md. ---is it too far of a fling to see them coming across the river to see their Messiah?

And what a tolerant bunch, too. Several of us were in the VIP area, when we whipped out McCAIN/Palin banners right in front of "the One". One of the supporters actually came over and grabbed those signs. So much for the pesky First Amendment, right? (I've seen Obama signs at McCain Rallies and they were not grabbed, but the rest of those attending all got a good laugh at the misguided idiots holding them--since we all recognized that without alot of those in attendance, their right and ability to display those signs would have been squat.)

I ended up in an interview with BBC when the reporter who had seen us raise the banners asked me how I felt to have had it ripped away. I summed it up quickly, and hope that it ends up in full report, and not lay in pieces on the cutting room floor.
This country is proud of the right to voice an opinion where the mere utterance is not cause for torture or retribution towards the speaker after or during the fact. I then offered the same point that I made above regarding Obama signs in Republican events.

All in all, this was not such a large rally. There were somewhere around 8000 people in attendance, far below the projected nubers I'd heard before the event. And when we take into account that ALOT of those present were ACTUALLY from Maryland and the District, it impacts the actual numbers representing Loudoun.

The other shoe will drop on Monday when Palin is scheduled for a rally in Leesburg. I promise not to yank any Obama signs out of any misguided hands that day. I am, after all, a very civil and gregarious kind of guy.

UPDATE: LeeJ has again lost his mind and is ranting again.
” So Monk how did it feel to have your McCain sign ripped away from you????”

To tell you the truth, it’s exactly what I expected from an intolerant blowhard with regard to my first amendment RIGHT. (you remember those don’t you- because I can assure you that the very people who thought that the Bush Patriot Act was “the devil” just turned around and did it one better ). That I didn’t put a foot in his gut and fight to keep that sign is a testament to my temperment. It was all about drawing the EXACT reaction from those there that I got. It was my desire to be documented on BBC and a couple of other news outlets that I did interviews with after the incident. And it highlighted the fact that those people will gladly trample the rights(especially the First Amendment to the Constitution) of those who don’t share their lunacy

Another Broadlands group...but on the up and up, this time.

Broadlands Residents for BRMC has started a website. This group is not funded by HCA, whereas Concerned Citizens of Broadlands is financed in large part by INOVA. INOVA publicly acknowledged giving the group money, so this is not news.That this Resident's Group is paying their own freight tends to give me a better window into the unbiased truth over there.

And for more facts that make quite a bit of sense, go here:

UPDATE: I attended the public input last night. INOVA, in usual fashion, bussed in employees to parade in front of the Commission, and I've got to say that I was appalled with the behavior of the INOVA crowd. They were reminded SEVERAL times thruout the evening to remain civil and tolerant to the opposing views, but they remained defiant and obnoxious thruout the evening. HCA supporters were not only tolerant, but very respectful of the opposition points.
This may have backfired on INOVA, because I noticed several of the Commissioners were annoyed with the INOVA supporter's behavior.

The "Death Spiral" has begun

Unless Americans wise up and pay attention to the facts of the leadup to the failed Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac debacle. Most Americans outside of those of us who watch events unfold minute by minute are oblivious to those facts, and as such, they will ignorantly suppose that Bush and Republicans are behind this chapter. Unless the biased press starts doing it's job and reporting that Barney Frank and Chris Dodd had a whole lot more to do with this failure than any Republican, the situation and it's outcome is bleak.
Now the Market falls under 9000. To most Americans, again , who ignorantly trust the mainstream media....this is directly proportionate to the "bailout".

In truth, it isn't. Companies and individuals who will have to pay higher Capital Gains taxes under Obama are moving their assets into places where they'll be safe until 2012. Until then, rather than invest those assets, they'll stuff them away and collect interest on them. If McCain is elected, this all stops dead in it's tracks on Novemebr 5th, and reverses course. With someone who understands the impact of Capital Gains Taxes on the flow of money to the markets at the helm, companies and individuals will open up those floor boards and will invest in growth again.
But if Obama wins, they'll close the floorboards and sit it out for four years (that'll look an awful lot like 1976 and Carter's administration).

As they continue to do this, the market, already in a precarious position due to democrats manipulation, will continue to fall. Those ignorant of the situation will see this, and be even more determined to vote for Obama, because they lack the information to reason that he and his ilk are exactly the ones who put us here.

So, in the end, those too ignorant to follow the breadcrumbs for themselves will inevitably connect the last remaining parts needed to gear a "Death Spiral" of electing Obama.

And there, at the bottom of the well, is where we'll sit for four years.

An excellent read.

I have a party to attend tonight, so I need to be brief.
I did come across a very interesting article to share with those who hadn't found it yet.

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

The 'ol man I was waiting for just showed up.

The right person finally got to McCain's ear this week. They must have whispered "Nice guys finish last".
All along this political season, McCain was hesitant to open up and just flat out blast Obama on a number of proven facts. He kept his claws sheathed, and his powder dry. Tonight, refreshingly, he came out full force against Obama and FINALLY laid the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac carcasses at his feet.
He schooled the younger man on the finer points of exactly "how" we build an alliance with Pakistani tribes (as we've done in Afghanistan after Russia failed), Beirut, Iraq and ,yes, even Vietnam.) instead of announcing that we'd attack them if they do not rid us of the Taliban/Al Queda factor hiding in their mountains.

He bested Obama so well, that the younger man wanted to revisit subjects even after his number of rebuttals were exhausted.
Obama was so frustrated, that he actually made the statement: "The senator is trying to imply that I'm green behind the ears". Let's get real here Obama. One is "green" OR one is"WET behind the ears". You are BOTH, and you just announced it in front of a NATIONAL audience.

McCain was on fire and on point tonight. I just wish he'd done it sooner, because nice guys do finish last.

The skit from SNL just dissappeared?

Saturday Night Live does a skit that enrages two of the culprits in the bailout, and NBC pulls the skit and reworks it?
I'm tickled that someone had it saved, so that it can be stored for posterity.

And Michelle Malkin does further background on the reasons it was pulled.

Anyway you shake this out, the results do not look good for Herbert and Marion Sandler (portrayed by Darrell Hammond and Casey Wilson in the skit). When this news gets out to alot more people, they might want to move....but to where?

ACORN just keeps on chugging along

Despite NUMEROUS charges in NUMEROUS states, ACORN keeps on being allowed to register voters. We might as well get ready for the Stealing of the Election.

John Fund has written a book called "Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy"

Phyllis Schlafly over at points out:

"Among those who are not eligible to vote are those who are dead, who are not residents of the precincts where they vote, who are registered to vote in another state, who are underage and especially those who are not citizens. Votes cast by any of those can cancel out your vote and, in close elections, decide the winner.
Fund describes how easy it is for unscrupulous politicians to buy voter impersonators with a little cash and get them to cast illegal votes. The Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals explained "the extreme difficulty of apprehending a voter impersonator. He enters the polling place, gives a name that is not his own, votes and leaves. If later it is discovered that the name he gave is that of a dead person, no one at the polling place will remember the face of the person who gave that name."

Chicago is ****'n FAMOUS for this, aren't they?

Tell ya what I betcha.

The markets suffered again today as more and more corporation money gets shoved down in the cracks before Obama's Reign of Terror. These businesses have looked down the road, and they've already imagined the damage as Obama raises the Capital Gains taxes on their money.
In an extremely short-sighted view, Obama really thinks that these companies will pay more up front to help him out of a budgetary "black hole".

What he, and every other democrat (they seem to really believe that "it's not fair" equals an economic degree) think that if they collect more money from the big guys who earned it, they can redistribute it to the more "needy". What they effectively overlook (and any REAL economics degree can tell you) is that that Capital Gains pool is brought out and reinvested into jobs and production when the penalty is not so severe that it trumps the return on that money.

These corporations and companies do not owe anything to any of us. They reinvest the Capital Gains back into the market to get a return on that money. They gamble enough as it is. The investments at that level of the game can make huge returns....or crash and burn on the whim of the market.
It's that nature of the stakes that the "hope and change" candidate does not now, nor will ever understand, because in all of his life, he may have made large sums, but he's never reinvested it, nor has he been on the "paying" end of a Capital Gains tax.

I'm going to stick by my guns. If Obama is President on January One, we're headed straight down into a deep recession. If McCain wins out, the floorboards open and the wealth of investment that lead to job creation will flow again. It's 1976 all over again.

The number one thing that we need at this point is job creation (in itself it is a sort of wealth redistribution--although those that recieve their paychecks from that job creation do indeed have to work for it) and without that....the 16% unemployment rates and interests rates that bring inflation can't be far behind.

At what point do you stop being a vital, vibrant part of your community ?

At what point do you stop being a vital, vibrant part of your community--and become the County bully?

I've watched for over 6 monhs as Inova Hospital has spent millions upon millions of dollars to battle HCA from building Broadlands Regional Medical Center. The Center should be a much welcomed relief for a Loudoun population that is already overburdening Inova's hospital services ...compared to neighboring counties number comparisons. Beds per residents....

Not to mention that the competition brought by the addition of the second entity will level the playing feild, and should adjust charges by a lone institution with no comparable franchise. I think that competition is healthy, even in getting out the word to the people of the county. I do not expect Inova to sit on it's hands and allow this HCA proposal to go forward unanswered. But I do intend for Inova to keep it clean and go after public opinion on the up and up, with the purest of motives...survival and market share of the medical needs of the county.

Recently, Inova violated that trust with me, and arguably, with the people of the county. They hit below the belt in so many ways, it would take a rather lengthy column here to define the error of their ways in my eyes.

But the latest example of their overreach is unfolding, and to tell you the truth, I'm stunned by the arrogance, the audacity, and the underhandedness of it. As many in the west out here know, we've been waiting for Inova's satellite services in Lovettsville, Purcellville, and Middleburg for about 5 to 6 years..maybe longer.
Purcellville has gotten so far that the building is finished, and ready to fill.

What Inova did recently was address AT LEAST (There are probably a number of attack points that I haven't witnessed yet in these towns) the Ruritans in Purcellville, and as I hear it--told them in no uncertain terms that if they wanted the Inova center out on Hatcher, they'd better become vocal advocates for Inova (more to the point, they'd do well to speak out against the HCA Center in Broadlands.) or else, Inova won't be able to afford to fill these satellite offices.

I'm still waiting to see how pathetic this gets, because I've long since lost count of the money spent by Inova on full page advertisements in at LEAST 4 weekly publications, and a couple more that escaped me in other publications. They've given money to "Concerned" groups, and alot of other money has been infused into the anti-HCA agitprop that hasn't even all been accounted for yet.

If you go to the Public Input session on October 15th at EagleRidge Middle School, you'd best be prepared to see the Mayors of Lovettsville, Purcellville and Middleburg testify that they think HCA coming to Loudoun is absolutely horrid. Just understand when you see them speak that it appears from my view that Inova finally decided to resort to extortion and these three Mayors fell for it hook, line and sinker.

BRING HCA's BROADLANDS REGIONAL MED. CENTER (and the $3.5 to $4 MIL a year in commercial taxes) TO LOUDOUN NOW!! It is overdue.

Update: Broadlands Residents for BRMC has started a website. This group is not funded by HCA, whereas Concerned Citizens of Broadlands is financed in large part by INOVA. INOVA publicly acknowledged giving the group money, so this is not news.
That this Resident's Group is paying their own freight tends to give me a better window into the unbiased truth over there.

So, we might say that the left-leaning media pulled a fast one?

Consider this. Palin did VERY well in her interviews with Gibson and Couric, but America will never know that because the 70% of the interview where she trumped these windbags is still laying on the cutting room floor. And every liberal in America has just had their feet whipped out from under them when the FULL transcripts are read in context and in their entirety.

No wonder Palin became frustrated and seemed to not want to answer some questions. She probably already knew she was damned if she did, and damned if she didn't. The "editing" of the tape by political hacks already in the bag for Obama should ENRAGE every voter out there who still believes in straight shooting and an honestly nuetral approach by journalists.

What the liberal-leaning press has done here is breached it's trust with Americans. We can no longer believe what they tell us. We will gravitate to Fox News in droves upon the revelation that we were lied to by someone we were supposed to be able to trust as our information source.

The fallout from this will be huge. After years of sly manipulation from the shadows, this year, the emboldened mainstream media finally stepped in it for all to see.

Let me tell you about some dumbasses who live-blogged

Since they say"two can play the game". What if Palin were to turn around and misquote or point out the mass ignorance of turds like this...

"Agenda said: a huge state that onle has 6000 citizens"

Good lord, but I can only assume that this retard is grasping for a description of Alaska. Just so the rest of us are clear... the damned Government up there employs 115,000 people, and assuming they all avoid LONG ASSED COMMUTES, I think we can safely put it to rest that there are indeed more than 6000 people in the state.

This is only the tip of the iceberg that is democrat ignorance and obedience to "The One".
You can point them to a real, honest to God tape from CSPAN of McCain's Speech on the Senate floor in May, 2006 telling us exactly what would happen in a little less than three years from that date, and then they hear Biden say that McCain voted for deregulation at around that same time...and their take?

Well, Joe wouldn't have said it if it weren't true, right??

Here's a clue, people. Biden technically lied, meaning he knew McCain's real intent, but calculating that the average joe out here doesn't follow the technical stipulations of the Senate Chamber. The sad part....he's right. The American populance has been purposely "dumbed down" for the better part of fifteen years, by my count.

Ouch...this'll leave a mark. Police State, anyone?

Evidently, Obama and company have thin skin. You can't talk bad about them or they'll arrest you. I think the last ones to throw around the "Hitler" reference WERE the Democrats....right?
