It’s all all about context. Can’t we just move on?
It’s been a bad, bad couple of weeks for President Obama since he turned off the teleprompter and started to tell us what he really thinks.
This week, he said at a campaign stop in Oakland California that “We’ve tried our [economic] plan, and it worked.”
Seriously? More than 40 months of unemployment north of 8% and “it worked?”
I’ll have what he’s having. Except I’m pretty sure it’s illegal in all 57 states, even for medicinal purposes.
I’m sure the spinmeisters will once again say that was out of context. But as the GOP pointed out “The More Context You Get, The Worse it Sounds.”
On Monday, Governor McDonnell signed HB958 sponsored by Delegate and Attorney General Candidate Bob Bell. SB159, the companion legislation in the Senate was sponsored by Senator and Attorney General Candidate Mark Obenshain.
The bill adds a mandatory minimum term of confinement of three years for a second or subsequent conviction of manufacturing, selling, giving, distributing, or possessing with intent to distribute a Schedule I or II drug (now five to life) and increases the mandatory minimum term for a third or subsequent conviction from five years to 10 years.

It’s not uncommon for the same or similar piece of legislation to be introduced in both Houses of the General Assembly. What’s a bit more unusual, or at least chuckle-worthy is how that bill signing is portrayed on Facebook.
Shortly after the signing, Mark Obenshain posted this picture and caption.
A couple of page refreshes later, Rob Bell posted this.
There was nothing wrong with either picture. Just a little amusing that neither recognized the other. It’s kind of like Baptists in a state-owned liquor store.
But in case there was any doubt, the un-conventional (so to speak) race between Bill Bolling and Ken Cuccinelli won’t be the only hotly contested primary in 2013.
Earlier this week Brian Kirwin wrote about the intolerance of the left with regard to the CEO of chick-fil-A speaking out regarding his opinion of traditional marriage. Chick-fil-A issued a statement clearly emphasizing that they do not discriminate in whom they hire or whom they serve. That should have been enough. It wasn’t.
At this point. There’s only one solution. The chikins must die.
And when their dead, they need to be deep-fried in peanut oil and slapped on a bun with a pickle.
Wednesday, August 1, 2012 is Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.
