Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Is It Really Over?

Is the budget stalemate really over? It is according to the RTD.
Just yesterday it looked like the negotiators wouldn't be able to get a budget this week, but now it appears they have.
I guess my friend who said this thing would get done this week was sort of right.

The Senate is supposed to go back Monday to pass the budget, with the House doing it Tuesday.

    So far this year I have been able to fly to 39 different campaign fund raising events all across this great nation on my own personal 747 at your expense to inspire folks to give truckloads of money (almost $150 million) to good Christian conservative politicians. All the while I have promoted increasing the national debt limit to over $8.1 trillion dollars, assuring that your children will most likely never be free of what I and my friends have imposed on them in order to make my good friends very, very wealthy. I have worked hard, and believe me, IT'S HARD, to make sure that the country is more divided than any time since the American civil war.

    I'll be back in just a bit, I want to go try to choke down a pretzel.

    Lowell Fulk has another post and survey on Republitarian

    How did the voters in Rockingham not see the obvious difference of candidate quality?

    It's been said that Rockingham would vote for Satan if he ran as a Republican and not vote for Christ if he ran as a Democrat. It's an odd place politically ... no women on the Board of Supervisors. Women don't even run. Hopefully in another 10, 20 years the knee-jerk voters will have died off, and people with think before they vote.

    I am very heartened that across the country evangelical Christians are seeing that more than bedroom issues matter. If this happens in Rockingham County, we'll get better candidates running as Republicans. Right now the bar isn't very high.

    Glad to see places like Alexandria are so progressive a GOPer couldnt win there if it was Christ.
    Matter of fact, Christ would probably do worse than typical Republicans.

    Nothing was accomplished with this budget. It in no way moves the transportation situation forward.
