Ward Armstrong Gets His Wish

Obama is heading his way.

How excited the Democratic delegate from Collinsvile Bassett must be.

Or not.

Here's Ward Armstrong a few years ago::

"If ever there was a region in this state that needed Barack Obama, it is my district."

That was in 2008.

Any bets on whether he'll be in Danville when Obama's herse pulls into Danville, just down the road?
Obama's Bus Tour Headed to Virginia
By Bob Lewis, NBC Washington

President Barack Obama is taking his bus tour to the Virginia cities of Danville, Charlottesville, Newport News and Fredericksburg this month to pitch his jobs package to the people.

A senior Democrat said the four cities are part of his pitch to voters in key battleground states to pressure congressional Republicans to approve his $447 million economic revitalization bill. [link]
I can just see every Democratic politician in Southside Virginia lining up to be on stage with Mr. Wonderful.

Yeah, I can just see it ...

News Out of Virginia's 8th District

Provided by the office of Delegate Greg Habeeb:
Habeeb Announces Endorsements from AgPAC, NRA; receives high marks from NFIB

Salem – Delegate Greg Habeeb (R-Salem) announced Friday several major endorsements that include the Farm Bureau AgPAC, the National Rifle Association and the National Federation of Independent Businesses.

Habeeb was endorsed Thursday by the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation AgPAC, the organization’s Political Action Committee. Habeeb also received high marks from the National Federation of Independent Businesses.

The endorsement from the AgPac comes based on the recommendation of local farmers.

“Each of these candidates has demonstrated a clear understanding of the needs of agriculture and forestry or has a favorable voting record in support of agriculture and Farm Bureau issues,” said Wayne F. Pryor, Chairman of VFBF AgPAC and VFBF president.

“I am grateful to have the endorsement of the Farm Bureau AgPac,” said Habeeb. “Agriculture is a fundamental part of the Roanoke Valley economy and I have worked hard to represent their interests in Richmond. I look forward to working with the Farm Bureau in the future.”

Habeeb also received high marks from the National Federation of Independent Businesses. The NFIB called Habeeb a “truly good friend” to Virginia small business.

“Small businesses make up 98% of the Commonwealth’s employers and are important to our economy. We would like to commend you for recognizing this and continuing to support Virginia’s small businesses,” said Nicole Riley, State Director of NFIB Virginia.

The NFIB represents over 6,000 small businesses in the Commonwealth.

“Small business is the backbone of our nation and our state’s economy. I understand this and have worked during my time in Richmond to promote growth and opportunity so small business owners and entrepreneurs can do what they do best – create jobs,” said Habeeb.

Habeeb also announced Friday an endorsement from the National Rifle Association. The NRA endorsed Habeeb’s re-election campaign and assigned him an “A” rating, the highest possible score.

Habeeb is the Republican candidate running for re-election to the Virginia House of Delegates in the 8th District. The 8th District includes the City of Salem, part of Roanoke County, Craig County, part of Montgomery County and part of the Town of Christiansburg.
Doin' the people's work. That's what I'm sayin'.

Whatever Floats Their Boat

Be honest. When was the last time you went to the theater and sat through a Woody Allen flick?

If you're like me, you'd answer: I never have. I'd rather have my lungs extracted with a pair of oversized, rusty tongs than endure one his snooze-fests.

Yeah, I've sat through all or part of "Mighty Aphrodite," "Bullets Over Broadway," "Radio Days," "Zelig," "Annie Hall," and others, on video, at home where I can easily find distractions and am not contributing (as much) to Allen's bad choice of professions.

I heard the other day that he's got a new movie coming out. I leaped with joy.


So when I read this I shrugged and said, Why not? I'll not be watching it either:

Allen Eyes [Michelle] Obama For Movie Role

It's at this point that I'd dream up and pass along some snarky suggestions for a movie role for our First Lady - something having to do either with the size of her ass or her interest in telling the rest of us what we will be allowed to put in our mouths from this day forward.

But I really don't care enough to comment.

Michelle Obama and Woody Allen are made for each other. May they knock themselves out (figuratively) putting out a blockbuster of a movie that nobody outside of Manhattan will give to squirts about.

Go for it, losers.

Time To Choose Sides

You know what frosts my behind about this whole "Occupy Wall Street" thing?

While the Chinese are working overtime to produce the goods that keep America's pampered youth in food, clothing, and iPods ...

 American youth go down to the local park, plant themselves on their fat asses, and demand that someone else pay the student loans they've accumulated because they really don't want to have to work - overtime or otherwise - to pay them themselves.

I might as well start learning to speak Zhōngguó Yǔwén now. We're doomed.

And They Don't Care

Remember, not long ago, when the rising national debt was Barack Obama's most serious concern?  A concern so troubling that he sought and received the formation of a "super-Congress" to deal with it?

How long did that last, a week?

And those students "demonstrating" (their deplorable ignorance) in parks around the country - suppose they have even the first clue as to what the national debt even is?

Well, they'd all better wise up.  Because this is going to really ruin their play time:

Obama Has Now Increased Debt More than All Presidents from George Washington Through George H.W. Bush Combined

Well, make the rich pay it down, the uneducated and woefully ignorant college students will shout.

And when "the rich" have all left our shores, what then?

Well ... make the government pay it down ... or something ...

The future leaders of America. Good God.

Let Me Get This Straight

The self-described anarchists who are "occupying Wall Street" are joined by government employee union members?

Don't they have interests and concerns that are polar opposites?

Doesn't the one group want the end of government while the other wants as much government fattening their wallets as possible?

Shouldn't they be at each other's throats?

I get really confused with all this.
