Virginia Group Raises Another Massive Confederate Flag (See Photo) Over Highway

1

Motorists traveling a major Virginia highway now have a second supersized Confederate flag to catch their attention, even though the first banner drew protests and debate.

The Virginia Flaggers, a group that celebrates the heritage of the Confederacy, raised the 20- by 30-foot (6- by 9-meter) battle flag on Saturday alongside Interstate 95 near Fredericksburg, some 60 miles (96.6 kilometers) north of the state’s capital of Richmond.

The group raised its first flag last year along the highway, immediately drawing complaints that it promoted racism and slavery, and leading 24,000 people to sign an online petition against its display.

(2 of 2) Virginia – Republican candidate: Evolution false because chimps can’t talk

1

Via: Raw Story

The Republican nominee for lieutenant governor in Virginia believes that biological evolution is false because chimpanzees cannot speak like humans do.

BuzzFeed revealed on Tuesday that E.W. Jackson made the claim in Ten Commandments to an Extraordinary Life, a book he published in 2008.

In the book, he noted that scientists had taught chimpanzees to use sign language. He said this finding was wrongly used as evidence that primates were our ancestors. Jackson said the scientists were incorrect because spoken language was a gift God provided exclusively to human beings and “no other creature.”

personal thought:

The GOP/Xristian Xrazies/GOP seem to me obsessed with chimps, apes, and other primates.

I’m thinking it must be a ‘sex thingy’, correct?

GOP leader Cantor OPPOSES Senate ‘cliff’ bill

1

Via: Yahoo

The No. 2 Republican in the House leadership says he opposes a Senate-passed measure to avert the so-called fiscal cliff.

Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor (see GIF) told reporters after a two-hour closed-door meeting Tuesday with his GOP lawmakers that he did not support the bill.

He said House leaders were looking for “the best path forward” and that no decisions had been made.

The Senate passed the measure early Tuesday by a sweeping 89-EIGHT vote. House passage of the measure would send it to President Barack Obama for his signature. The bill would increase taxes on family income exceeding $450,000 and delay across-the-board spending cuts for two months.

House GOP leaders were considering amending the measure and sending it back to the Senate, but that step could  WILL produce a deadlock.

‘Romney’s Secret Plan to [Fill in the Blank]’ – Alan Grayson

Via: Huffington Post

I watched the presidential debate last night. There was a general absence of NASCAR moments, although Romney’s insistence that the president actually didn’t say what the president actually did say about the Benghazi attack came close. Leaving that aside, the impression that I was left with is that Romney is running a giant con game, and the American people are his marks.

Romney has a secret plan to cut unemployment.

Romney has a secret plan to eliminate the federal deficit.

Romney has a secret plan to cut the cost of higher education.

Romney has a secret plan to eliminate tax deductions and exemptions and credits.

Romney has a secret plan to cut federal spending.

Romney has a secret plan for equal pay for women.

Romney has a secret plan for health care reform.

Yeah, right. Whatever. And that was just the first 30 minutes.

Many elections turn on the issue of CREDIBILITY. This presidential race will turn on the issue of GULLIBILITY.

The Romney campaign begs the question:

Are we really so easily taken in?

Are we all babes in the woods?

Did we all just crawl out of the cabbage patch?

Has Uncle Sam become Uncle Sucker?

I hope not.

Courage,

Alan Grayson

Q: Since you live in Thailand, are you planning to go to the Virginia Plantation?

A: Actually NO, because I plan to wait for the opening of the Northern Thailand ‘Belle Grove’ – hopefully, soon.

It’s one thing to hear crap like this coming from, say, Rush Limbaugh; but quite another to hear it from a representative.

Disgraceful!
