Here is a simple question everyone is avoiding but the answer is obvious: How stupid are the American people?
On October 30, 2008 Barack Obama said, "We are five days from fundamentally transforming the United States of America." And so the stupidest people in the world (oops! I gave away the answer) voted for a man who said he was effectively going to throw away the United States of America and replace it with......what? He didn't say. Well, how stupid is that? Think about it. On July four, 1776 the Representatives of the United States of America declared the intentions of the people to fundamentally transform the British Colonies in North America.
For the most part I appreciate the Dr. Footsie cartoons, subject matter and presentation, but I think VNS should get away from the toilet humor. There are too many other ways your cartoonist to stay on the ‘edge’ of major issues without resorting to ‘fecal funnies.’
Brandon Clinton Chesapeake

The following this article which details the goof-up's during the Clinton administration in the war against terror when anti-terror officials completely disregarded intel that put Muslim jihadists behind plans to hijack airliners.
Does that Clinton era attitude differ at all from today's FBI being warned twice by the Russians that the Tsarnaev brothers were up to no good in Boston? What do these FBI guys do to become so ineffective? How do you train to ignore the obvious?
I present an abbreviated list, (due to word count restrictions), of “Current Communist Goals” from 1963:
* Do away with all loyalty oaths.
* Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
* Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
* Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy making positions.
It's a sad day in America when "conservatives" go around spreading lies that a mother has a "fundamental right" to slaughter her child without mercy.
There is no such thing. If Americans understood how the US legal system works and cared about it, abortion would not be the #1 cause of death in the USA.
There is NO right to murder in the US constitution. Many states are passing laws recognizing the fact that the
pre-term baby is a person worthy of protection under the Bill of Rights.

"One-Stop-Shopping" Website Announced for
Education Improvement Scholarship Tax Credit
The Thomas Jefferson Institute for Public Policy today released a new website designed to assist Virginians in taking advantge of the new "Virginia Education Improvement Scholarships Tax Credit."
Located at www.vataxcreditscholarship.com, the website is designed to be a "one-stop-shopping" website to help parents interested in finding a scholarship for their child, donors in identifying potential scholarship foundations to support, and schools in determining how to work to receive students with such scholarships.
Taking effect for the first time in January 2013, Virginia Education Improvement Scholarship Tax Credit works much like similar programs in 12 other states, where more than 150, 000 children are helped to receive a better education.

Obama Care is the worst disaster to hit America since the Great Depression. Obama promised: You can keep your insurance and you can keep your doctor. There was also speculation that premiums would go down approximately $2,500.
Hidden away inside those 15,000 pages of hope & change was this little caveat. 40 to 67% of customers will not be able to keep their policies. Obama knew this. So did Pelosi and Reid and all the others. Our economy is headed for another depression. That is the Obama plan.
Hurricane Katrina: Why did Obama refuse the aid of so many nations offering to help? Two Reasons: Countries offering assistance did not employ union workers. And Obama wanted to make the point that oil is bad. He doesn’t like coal either so he’s shutting down our coal mines.
BREAKING NEWS: THE VIRGINIA SUPREME COURT OVERTURNS TOLLS RULING:
In a surprise ruling against the anti-toll foes of Tidewater, the Virginia Supreme Court Thursday morning ruled that a Portsmouth judge erred in a decision declaring the Feb. tolls on the two tunnels linking Norfolk and Portsmouth unconstitutional taxation.
The ruling disappointed a lot of people who felt the legislation as drafted constituted illegal authority for a private entity to level taxes for more than then next 50 years without local or legislative input or control.
The Supremes disagreed, ruling the tolls are user fees, not taxes. A negative ruling would have cost the state considerable money since the contract for new facilities have been let and work started.
BREAKING NEWS: SUPREME’S RULE THE STATE WAS NOT NEGLIGENT IN MASSACRE SUIT:
Atty. Gen. Ken Cuccinelli issued a statement saying, “While words cannot express the tremendous sympathy we have for the families who lost their loved ones in the Virginia Tech shootings of 2007 -- including the Prydes and the Petersons -- the Virginia Supreme Court has found what we have said all along to be true: The commonwealth and its officials at Virginia Tech were not negligent on April 16, 2007. Cho was the lone person responsible for this tragedy."
Families of victims sought to prove negligent on the part of school and state officials.

Quote OF THE DAY
"If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones - you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots."
From the Internet
"Necessity, especially in politics, often occasions false hopes, false reasonings and a system of measures, correspondently erroneous."
--Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 35, 1788
