“There are more then 50 people buried there and now the community is footing the bill for 24 hour deputies at the cemetery now. this is a rural community and not a big city. I give it 48 hours and the body will be gone.”

“It is not a small town but a huge tourist area, home to Kings Dominion which attracts thousands of people everyday from spring to fall and employs hundreds. It also is home to the Virginia State Fairgrounds so in no way the rural community that some would like to paint it as.”

Help Me Nominate Five Glamour Women of the Year

Commented May 26, 2012 at 08:49:29 in Women

“Ok, so I get it. Especially Ashley Judd who does so much for the third world children. But on this Memorial Day weekend and with this being Military appreciation month, there are so many deserving Military spouses out there who should be included in this. Really, they are the unsung heroes in this world and they need to be counted as well. while I can't name names, I am sure that your research people could find a few. But I will nema one woman who, while not a military spouse, contributes wholeheartedly to the cause and that would be Mrs. Gary Sinse. She and her family sacrifice so that Gary can be there for our troops, in harms way in Afghanistan or even in Washington, injured in a car wreck on the way to visit our Wounded Warriors at Bethesda/Walter Reed. So please take a moment and consider her and the rest of our military women in this group.
Thank You,
A Military Mom!”

“Why is it that someone,in this case a 30 something year old responsible adult (responsible because he may have been a licensed driver) goes out and breaks the law drinking and driving, speeding at top speeds and wrecking the sports car so bad that all that was left was the frame. and for some reason people speak the truth and it is suddenly their fault? And yes friends don't let friends drive and I am sure this will be seen once the bodies are buried and the lawsuits are filed. one by the passenger's family against Ryan's estate, and one by Ryan's family against who ever served those drinks and let them leave and get behind the wheel. In cases like this the responsible driver (responsible for the wreck) walks away and innocent people are usually involved, killed and/or maimed. Yes two people are dead and a lot of people are now left behind to get angry. Well get angry with Ryan for doing this. Learn from this and make it your goal to not drink and drive and to not let your friends drink and drive. I am positive that if the drinks he drank reported are legit, the tox reports will come back well above the legal limit. I am sorry for the deaths and that two families and friends are left behind to pick up the pieces. I would hope people would learn from these deaths and not let them be a waste.”

“Thanks for you remembrances. When the band settled in between gigs back on the Jersey Shore, CC made his home in Sea Bright and made many a morning appearance at Victors Cafe for breakfast. Now Victors had the best breakfasts around those parts in those days. When you ate breakfast with Clarence no one cared who he was or what he did. We were there to eat breakfast and shoot the bull. Clarence could regale us with his tales of life and living. He loved kids and was always ready to give a high five to my son Andy who was a tot and who loved this CC's big grin. We loved CC and we loved his music outside of E Street. A few weeks ago I found the vinyl of Clarence Clemons and bought it though I still have my cassette of it. She asked and I said this is the man playing on Gaga. When Edge of Glory came out I let her learn how to know when it was CC playing his sax. She was hooked. She fell in love with the Big Man, the same way most of us did, including Gaga. I grew up with the parental lines about some music that "it would never last". Well when I get to heaven I am looking forward to hearing that sax live and wailin' and grateful that my daughter got a chance to admire and respect Clarence Clemons in a way I never could show her.”

“This coming from the woman who left DC schools not much better than they were and indiscriminately fired hundreds of teachers that will now cost the District millions and possibly more since a judge has ruled they were fired illegally, owed back pay for the past several years, and must rehire the teachers. Also, had a principal manipulating test scores for graduating seniors, fired the folks that tried to blow the whistle and also misappropriated a $100,000 grant from AARP to be used for a special program in the DC schools.

Should We Arm the Libyan Opposition? The Short (and Long) Answer Is No

“NO!!! we have our Marines and service members being shot in Afghanistan with American made bullets. We supplied stuff years ago to the. Arms we supplied to the countries such as Egypt have had our American marked weapons and other stuff we supplied, used against the folks for the revolution when they protested in the streets. WE have US Marines on the ground despite what Obama wants to say embedded with the rebels. This is a fact known by the Marine parents who have kids that in some cases just came back from the Stan and have had to go to Libya. This is a crock and the American people think spending is out of hand, we have spent billions already over there!”

“Yes, I am saddened to say he would be shocked, appalled and angry. During the 60s; his followers stood up for themselves, were accountable and responsible for the consequences. They RESPECTED themselves. Today it is the older generation that remembers Dr. King and those that stood beside him and in some cases died for what they believed in. The young people for the last few generations have taken on the attitudes that they are victims, he is owed something, and everyone is out to get them. they wear clothes that go against Dr. King's beliefs and that basically disrespect themselves. I do not ever remember Dr. King or any of the other leaders in his group acting this way or wearing their trousers down over their underwear. These young people have opportunites that others gave their lives to attain. They are the ones that disrespect his memory the most.”

“If you wish to do something against this war, then do it in support of our troops not against them. Get active and write to Capital Hill. Start with the Rules Of Engagement that help the enemy and get our kids injured or killed. You want to be political then do so. But making political change and putting a stop to political corruption begins at home with us, not with more of the very thing that you are trying to fight. And before you make comments about these documents in support of the Wikileaks, read them. Read them and look for the names of people you may know personally. You will be shocked at what you find and may even change your attitude towards this man and his accomplice.”

“I've read many of them. I wouldn't even be shocked if my name was in there. But I wouldn't care. I'm all for sunlight shining on the truth of our actions.

You say, "Start with the Rules Of Engagement..."

I say, "Start with the fact that Congress has never declared nor authorized either of these wars or any hostility on Pakistani ground. Bush *DICTATED* these wars. Get it?”

Social Security: The Coming Cave-in

Commented Dec 13, 2010 at 13:09:18 in Politics

“Mr Obama's handpicked committee. Alan Simpson made it clear the little guy would get blamed. SS recips: he left them with an insult that causes NOW to demand for his resignation or remove. Neither were forthcoming. NOW's plea fell on deaf Obama ears. Simpson chastised Viet Nam vets and and tried to shame them in abusing the system and collecting for their service related illnesses. Folks in Washington or where ever else they come from are not clueless. They just don't care. Why did the family of Sens' Ted Kenendy and Robert Byrd. collect their salaries for a solid year after they died.Will SS recip family collect the SS check a for a year after a loved one dies? No. There needs to be strictly enforced rules on members of the house and senate governing pay/raises/perks We need to remove the get rich scheme that allow them to make money off of us, the legislation they pass/don't pass, the money they make off the Armed Forces.
One way to help social security. End the war.Consider the average age 18-24 of these kids that will be collecting full SS and disability for the rest of their lives from the injuries they have received ( yes, they deserve these benefits), calculate the number injured to date and the average to be injured if the war goes on til 2014, Add in the SS beneficiaries of those killed. Hmmmm!”

And, I am not bashing True Blood as we watch it, but some stuff from last season to me pushed the envelope.”
