Guilani went from bad to worse. According to Huffingtonpost.com:
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) defended his accusation that Obama doesn’t love America by arguing that Obama’s upbringing by a white mother and attendance of a white school made his statement not racist.
“Some people thought it was racist — I thought that was a joke, since he was brought up by a white mother, a white grandfather, went to white schools, and most of this he learned from white people,” Giuliani said in an interview with The New York Times on Thursday.
All the GOP candidates now will be asked if they agree or disagree. They need to throw Rude Rudy under the bus. He was always too big for his britches anyway. How can anyone assess how much someone else loves their country? Political tomfoolery.
His 9-11 big-shotting would gag a maggot. He can’t claim to be more deeply affected than everyone else.
Giuliani keeps digging himself in deeper and deeper. Let the comedy begin.
Or let’s put it another way–Prince William County, you cheap bastards.
Today I listened to the budget presentation from the Tuesday night BOCS meeting. I was appalled. Tonight I looked at it online. The new budget sickened me.
Prince William County is not a poor county made up of poor folks. It is quite wealthy and has a lot going for it. It’s also, by Northern Virginia standards, a fairly affordable place to live. So why are some people, especially those in my district, clamoring for lower taxes?
For that matter, why would our Board of Supervisors agree to make libraries the untouchables in a draconian budget slashing caper? Why would money be taken away from the performing arts? Why would poor children be denied dental services and drug rehab programs be eradicated? It isn’t even our poor and most vulnerable who will lose services. It’s everyone.

Prince William County is #12. That’s not too shabby. Half the households make more than $93,744 annually and half make less. Loudoun, of course, puts us to shame with a top median household income of nearly $118,000 per year.
Is it cold enough for everybody yet? It’s just perfectly dreadful, in my opinion and the wind makes it so much worse.
Does anyone have a plan to stay warm? I just keep trying to sit close to dogs.
Last night was definitely a three dog night. My faithful friend kept my feet warm all night. Actually, I think he was using me.

MOBILE, Ala. — A federal judge here ruled on Thursday that the local probate judge cannot refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, potentially adding some clarity to a judicial quarrel that has roiled Alabama for most of a week.
The order by Judge Callie V. S. Granade of Federal District Court came after a brief hearing and prompted cheers and crying in the halls of the probate court here, where several couples obtained licenses and were married before the license office closed.
Today I read some unpleasantness on a local blog about illegal immigration. The blogmeister(s) made the mistake of quoting F.A.I.R. For the uninitiated (read Baptism by Fire), F.A.I.R. is the Federation for American Immigration Reform. F.A.I.R.’s objectives are to secure the border (southern), to stop illegal immigration and by their own admission, limited the number of legal immigrants into the country.
Here’s the reality of the situation. Supervisor Candland, whether rightly or wrongly, is associated in many people’s minds with the blog where I read the diatribe about unaccompanied minors and the remarks and report by F.A.I.R. He does not want to be associated with F.A.I.R. nor does he want to appear to be anti-immigration.
