Obama tells voters to pressure Congress

While I agree with all of the above we can do something about it. We have the one tool that will change things. We have a VOTE. Its all we have left so we must use it wisely. We must change Congress along with the so called leader. All must go. BTW where are the Virginia congressmen? In 13 years as a resident I have yet to see one. I know we are rural but really!! We get to vote at a store that is manned by??? and how are our votes entered or counted?? I have to wonder.  (Aug 15, 2011 | post #275)

Hinkle: Cuccinelli raises hackles by being correct

I would like to see where any church in the area has done anything except for maybe their own. They are tax exempt so why are we coddling them with further money? Show me some good works they have done for any community. The poor do not need a ministry they need food and shelter and a means to help themselves. I will likely be crucified for this.  (May 28, 2011 | post #1)

Pagans and Heathens!

Pagans and heathens???? What???????? Does this mean that anyone who disagrees or thinks differently is a Pagan or a Heathen???? I am a Buddhist!!! Does that make me a pagan or heathen??? I respect all life and ideas. Its called Freedom of thought and ideas folks. Virginia is comprised of a bunch of close minds that only adhere to what someone else tells them and they gather in small groups and denegrate those who do not conform. Your ancestors migrated from Europe for religious freedom and brought with them the same old bullcrap that they now place on others who do not think as they do. This is called oppression. I find it to be a beautiful State full of stupid people. Open your minds and take a look around. There is more going on in this great land than your closed community. Its called knowledge. Be kind to those who do not think the same. There is room for all. Worship your snakes if you like. Do not reduce to name calling me because I love the entire world. Grow up and smell the flowers instead of trampling them.  (May 23, 2011 | post #7)

What's Coming Up in Your Kitchen Garden?

Spinach and kale survived the winter in my garden. At this time I have tomatoes (four feet high) radishes, carrots, sweet potatoes, romaine and other lettuces, peppers rhubarb and an assortment of herbs. I also have a new hive of Mason Bees started. The increased growth of my garden, both vegetable and flower, is the addition of fish meal. It does wonders to the soil.  (May 21, 2011 | post #1)

Pagans and Heathens!

My experience with the bible belt is they are a gossiping bunch and do not like outsiders other than immediate members of their particular sect. I would have to say practice what you preach. Reach out in love and kindness and realize that not everyone is a sheep. Partake of the knowledge others may bring to your lives. Its a big wide wonderful world full of interesting ideas. Practice what you want in private but do not shun others for not being as close minded. I have been here 13 years and have yet to see the welcome wagon. Stop being selfish and critical of others. Religious or thinking freedom is what America is supposed to be. Many of the churches refer to their "flock" does this mean sheep???  (Mar 16, 2011 | post #5)

Now's just no time to hike taxes

While the suburban areas are expanding and requesting more services one neglects to consider the rural areas that receive almost no services and yet have to pay the taxes like everyone else. If you are going to expand services then you must include the rural areas also. This county is mostly rural and so does not receive much for their taxes. Many do not want to live in the cities or the suburbs where most of the crime and problems take place. Why should we be punished for what the suburban areas bring along with their needs for more recreation, overcrowding of schools, lack of parenting. I commend the so called conservatives for considering the entire county and not just the suburban or Danville area. Clean up your city and then we can talk.  (Mar 16, 2011 | post #1)

Farm Bureau looks to help farmers provide safe, ample foo...

I would like to be updated on the mining issue. I do not feel it will be good for the County but the information we seem to be getting is not very inclusive. I am a resident of Callands and I use only local beef and vegetables when I can get them. I would like to use local milk but there seems not to be any outlet. I used to live in the Garden State (New Jersey) and they had local markets all over the place. Here we do not have the same and no one seems to grow anything. Perhaps if they did and the locals had access we might develop a new industry for the area. We can probably feed ourselves if we use the land. I understand the need to ship our goods elsewhere for profit but what about us who live here. It is a vast wasteland. There is much more to Virginia than Fairfax county. RuraL Virginia is lost or non-existant. I have hopes for the new appointment and that he will consider using some of the resources we have to better rural /Virginia. Thank you.  (Jan 9, 2011 | post #1)

VA Property Tax Exemption for Veterans, Question 2

I think all veterans disabled or not should get an exemption. I also think all males and females should be required to serve their country.  (Nov 5, 2010 | post #397)
