Clearly you are wrong.
I live in Hanover County, referenced in UncleFester's WaPost article. Cantor support DROPPED PRECIPITOUSLY from his landslide in 2012. It certainly wasn't Dem support he lost.
Yes, my buddies and I met last night and shared a toast to Dave's win. We were all former Can...

It's a win for the hapless Virginia Repubs.
Virginia was a reliable Red state when I moved here in the 90's, but with the growth of NOVA, the populace has voted for Dems for state office, US Senator, and Pres here in the last 3-4 years.
If you love in NOVA, maybe you SHOULD pay att...

I couldn't disagree more. I've been managing developers for 20 years and would LOVE it if I could be like some of my guys: very few meetings, get handed designs, get to do the creative things with a language to solve a problem while rocking out with their headphones on. Of course, they don't make ...

It's just like when the brilliant Va GOP'ers picked Olly North to run against a tainted Chuck Robb for Senate a while back...one of the few people in the free world that could actually lose.
Cuccinelli always seemed like an unyielding jerk while in office, with his social agenda on his sleeve. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: When and Why did you become an LSU Tiger? - chrome_daddy on 4/23/13 at 1:46 pm|
I wasn't one of the fortunate ones that had family or friends that were Tiger fans. I grew up primarily in South Carolina in a household totally devoid of any kind of sports fanaticism. My parents both worked alot and we didn't watch much TV when we were home...strictly blue collar.
I became a...

Do you really think LSU didn't want to score more than 9 in the first match up? [/quote]
This is what PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND!!! LSU, unlike Bama, did not take any chances in that game. They only took what Bama gave them. That was the gameplan...to play defense and special teams and n...

Does it say something about whether someone is open-minded or not? Do you think that some of you all lived sheltered lives? Are you all not risk takers? Did you all grow up in country clubs and have never experienced the hard edges of life?
I don't smoke and never did much as I didn't like the...

| Political Talk|| re: Webb (D-Va) won't seek re-election - chrome_daddy on 2/10/11 at 9:33 am|
From my view in Virginia, Webb was only elected due to the growing discontent against the Bush administration and all the wars, which he promised to fight to put an end to. The NoVa libs put him in office. Allen was seen as a reliable party-line Bush supporter, which hurt him in the end and probab...

Bingo...and Virginia is the 8th most populous state. VT fans across the state are loyal and rabid (much more so than the ones from Mr. Jefferson's University). This would be a great move by the SEC. Let's just skip over NC....

Weed is for Losers. JMO. I've personally seen how lazy it made my former tenants, and me too back in my days in Natchitoches Parish. I don't like it's affects...would much rather drink.
That said, it should be legal and we should encourage any economic development around it and tax the livin...
