CHARLESTON- After President Obama's unsuccessful attempt to dissolve the state of West Virginia last year, relations have been strained between the occupants of the similar looking Capitols. The move was rumored to have been in response to the traditionally Democrat stronghold voting Republican in last few presidential elections. This week, Earl Ray Tomblin attempted to heal the rift by becoming one of a handful of Governors to openly support Obama's healthcare law.
Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this. It's easy to check out, if you don't believe it. Be sure and show it to your family and friends. They need a little history lesson on what's what and it doesn't matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts.
Republicans and "so-called" conservatives are at it again. They are claiming that the Constitution gives people the right to have guns without the permission of the government. If that were true, then how could New York and Chicago have laws against it?
CHARLESTON- After being hit with a devastating storm early last week, West Virginia is still feeling the effects of hurricane Sandy. While not getting hit quite as hard as New York and New Jersey, West Virginia has joined a growing number of states extending Election Day. Madam Secretary of State, Natalie Tennent, made the announcement late Sunday night via her Twitter account. A press conference is scheduled Monday morning.
A good friend of mine recently complained about the choices in this election cycle and chided my confidence in my choice by saying, "Voting for the lesser of two evils, is still voting for evil". THIS is my response:
LINCOLN COUNTY- WV State Police are looking for suspects that have been vandalizing cemeteries in several WVa counties. Vandals are reportedly placing political stickers on tombstones that read, "I AM DEAD AND I VOTE". The stickers also have the tag line, "Paid for by the 2012 West Virginia Democrat Zombie Coalition." Police also reported finding a few Obama 2012 stickers.
MARTINSBURG- The forecast was sunny, but it felt overcast. Flowers lost their pleasant smell, the birds stopped singing, couples argued for no reason, and babies did nothing but cry. Tuesday, the unthinkable happened. A GOP Campaign office opened in Martinsburg, West Virginia.
Sure, the Muslim Brotherhood is now in charge of Egypt and considered one of the Arab world's largest and most influencial Islamic movements, but it hasn't always been so well-revered. Why only last year FBI Director Robert Mueller told a House committe that elements of the Muslim Brotherhood are in the United States have supported terrorism here and overseas. And their ideology has inspired terrorists such as Osama bin Laden. It has also been called one of the world's most insidious and implacable jihad organizations [LINK].
It's a good thing Nick Joe Rahall is so open-minded. He was supporitive of the terrorist-friendly group before it was cool.
Don't forget the next two days have been set aside as the Primary Election for West Virginia.
Anxious Charleston citizens and Lawmakers have been calling the National Weather Service with fears about an ominous cloud looming over the West Virginia Capitol.
