FUN FACT: Five worst American mass shootings were all Democrats
The five worst mass killings, where a firearm was used, have a common thread. Hint #1: They didn’t belong to the NRA. They don’t fit the stereotype of the “red-neck” gun owner.
Check it out …
Columbine: Too young to vote; both families were registered Democrats and progressive liberals.
Connecticut School Shooter: Registered Democrat; hated Christians.
Common thread is that all of these shooters were progressive liberal Democrats.
The Virginia General Assembly likes to keep their proceedings a secret. Missed the live webstream of a debate or discussion about a bill? You’re out of luck—there’s no way to watch them later.
But. The Virginia General Assembly sellsvideo of their proceedings for $10 per DVD. For the past five years, Richmond Sunlight has annually managed to cobble together the funding to buy a copy of each and every one of those DVDs, rip them, and put them online (on Richmond Sunlight and the Internet Archive) for anybody to watch.
That’s where you come in. It’s expensive to buy all this video. There are guaranteed to be at least two DVDs per day—one for the House, one for the Senate—but some days they go long and two, even three DVDs are created for one or both chambers. Legislative staff tell us that it’ll cost us $1,240 to buy the DVDs for all of 2012, and the video for 2013 will run approximately $930.
So that’s $2,170 to acquire approximately 81 days of video. With the 5% Kickstarter fee and the 5% Amazon Payments fee, that’s a cost of $2,387 to acquire the 2012 and 2013 video, or an average of $14.73 per day per chamber (the House and the Senate).
Richmond Sunlight makes no money off of this—all contributions will be passed along directly to the legislature to buy these DVDs. In fact, Richmond Sunlight has no money, and never has. It has bank account, no revenue, no way to pay for anything at all. (As a result, the IRS counts this as taxable personal income for me, so I’ll probably have pay a few hundred bucks out of pocket come April 15.) In short, if you don’t donate, this won’t happen.Period.
$15 will pay for one day’s video for one chamber. $30 will pay for one day’s video for both chambers. $150 will acquire one week’s video for both chambers. For every $15 you donate, Richmond Sunlight will permanently credit you on one day’s video for one chamber, thanking you for buying that video to make it available freely.
Support transparency. Join us in liberating the 2012 and 2013 Virginia General Assembly video.
Seriously, if you can afford a Starbucks latte, you can afford to help back this project.
Ordinarily, if you want to start a new business or offer a new service there is a simple test to find out whether your new business is needed: You open the doors and tell the world. If people need your business, you will have customers. If they don’t, you won’t. That experience—of learning what people need and how new types of services can fit in—is familiar to anyone who has ever been an entrepreneur. Indeed, it is familiar to anyone who has ever been a customer.
It is also an experience that the state of Virginia turns entirely on its head for people who want to offer new healthcare services. If you want to offer new healthcare services, even something as routine as opening a private clinic, you have to obtain special permission from the state government. And permission is not easy to come by: Would-be service providers have to persuade state officials that their new service is “necessary”—and they have to do so in a process that verges on full-blown litigation in which existing businesses (their would-be competitors) are allowed to oppose them. Not surprisingly, this process can be incredibly expensive, and it frequently results in new services being forbidden to operate at all.
To be clear, this requirement (called a certificate-of-need or CON program) has nothing to do with public health or safety. Separate state and federal laws govern who is allowed to practice medicine and what kind of medical procedures are or are not permitted. Virginia’s CON program only regulates whether someone is allowed to open a new office or purchase new equipment; it is explicitly designed to make sure new services are not allowed to take customers away from established healthcare services.
In short, Virginia’s CON program is nothing but a government permission slip to compete. It ensures that more money flows into the pockets of established, politically connected businesses, and it accomplishes this by trampling entrepreneurs’ economic liberty and reducing Virginians’ choices for medical care.
But patients and doctors—not state officials—are in the best position to decide what healthcare services are needed. That is why Colon Health Centers of America, headed by Dr. Mark Baumel, MD, and Washington Imaging Associates Maryland, LLC, headed by Dr. Mark Monteferrante, MD, have joined forces with the Institute for Justice to challenge Virginia’s protectionist CON program. The Constitution protects individuals’ right to earn an honest living free from unreasonable government interference, and it prevents states from putting up unnecessary barriers to interstate commerce. The Virginia CON program does both, and that is why the federal courts should strike it down.
GOP Senate candidate proposes state-run Virginia bank

One that is backed by gold and silver.
He should take it to the next step and propose secession from the union.
Promoting the merits of “small government” may be all the rage for national Republican figures, but in Virginia a GOP politician collecting signatures for a U.S. Senate campaign is proposing something slightly different.
Delegate Bob Marshall, who has represented his northern Virginia district since 1992, introduced a curious piece of legislation on Dec. 27 to establish a joint legislative subcommittee aimed at “establish[ing] a bank owned, controlled, and operated by the Commonwealth.”
Last week news outlets reported that Marshall is weighing another Senate run. He lost the Republican Senate nomination in 2008 to former Gov. Jim Gilmore by a razor-thin margin.
A cursory reading of Marshall’s bill reveals that he is fond of North Dakota’s state-run bank and would like Virginia to follow in its footsteps.
If the idea seems peculiar, the legislation makes it clear that Marshall considers the money-making possibilities a potential boon for his state’s budget.
“[T]he state of North Dakota currently engages in the business of banking, owns, controls, and operates a bank known as the Bank of North Dakota,” the bill notes. “[Virginia] is expected to have a budget shortfall of between $1.8 billion and $3.6 billion in 2010 and North Dakota is expected to have an $800 million budget surplus.”
During a March 1, 2009 appearance on ABC’s This Week, Rep. Cantor said that the government can’t create jobs, “And what we see in this budget, frankly, is an attempt, again, to try and stimulate the economy through government expenditure. And, you know, at best what that can do is redistribute wealth. It can’t create jobs; it can’t create wealth. We’ve got to get back to focusing on job creation and creating prosperity.”
Newsweek has uncovered letters that show Rep. Cantor requesting hundreds of millions of stimulus dollars for his district at the same time; he was publicly claiming that government can’t create jobs.
Just a month after going on ABC and claiming that the government can’t create jobs, Cantor sent a letter to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood to request almost $75 million in federal stimulus funds for the I-95 high speed rail project. Cantor along with Rep. Bobby Scott wrote that, “High speed rail provides a sensible and viable solution to our region’s transportation challenges. It is estimated that creating a high speed railway through Virginia will generate as many as 185,500 jobs, as much as $21.2 billion in economic development, and put nearly 6.5 million cars off the road annually.”
