As far as gun control, I assume you want all handguns confiscated? That was the weapon of choice at VT. Also knives and blunt objects, as they kill more people. And cars. God are cars ever instruments of death!

I'm not worried about tax increases; I typically vote for those. In fact, I expect and welcome it for higher government services and a pay increase for certain sectors, particularly education. I contend most teachers should make a minimum of $80-90K.

And no, I do not want all handguns confiscated. But stronger regulations are necessary, although it'll take a national effort. It won't matter what we do here if you can hop to West Virginia and get a firearm anyways. But it's a step forward in that national effort.


CA teachers are highest paid in the nation. The state placed 46th out of 50 in student proficiency. So, good luck with that.

If you raise taxes enough people won't just hop to West Virginia, they'll move there. What's the commute time from Charles Town to DC?

Virginia’s problem is 1/3 of the state’s population is in densely populated, deep blue, liberal, Northern VA. Most of them aren’t native Virginian’s, but liberal transplants. Most of the rest of VA outside the cities is deep red.

Taxes will go up, cost of living will go up, they’ll be going after people’s guns, etc. I’d scratched it off the potential retirement list decade ago.

VA would have been better off if Northern VA had gone to Maryland or WV when WV seceded from VA..

I ride a motorcycle and a long commute (which I have had in 2 out of 4 countries) is the BEST part of my day. Thanks for reminding me of what I have to look forward to... especially in fall when the leaves are turning

Oh... and I get to ride in the HOA lane and avoid several tolls... WINNING

Is your stash of powerbars hidden somewhere around Harper's Ferry, or was that SW VA?

Neither.

Do you ever get free garage parking on your motorcycle? I was surprised the parking lot at the medical center I worked let me in for free. Had spots just for bikes too.
Everything is better with Montana.

My current plan is to retire in WV, but it'll be deeper into Almost Heaven than Harper's Ferry.

Btw, I was just there in June with my kiddos and the traffic was a bitch. That alarmed me. I don't want to be near people when I retire. I hate people.

That’s not a valid excuse. Between two pieces of shit people chose a beefier piece of shit.

There were better options. Like Kasich.

He has not been known to commit adultery since his presidential run. However, he had been known to lie repeatedly. He is violating one of the 10 commandments right now by bearing false witness against Biden. Not that most politicians don't bear false witness. But he's doing it. There is absolutely no indication that he is a different person than he's been during most of his previous life when he was living by routinely lying, cheating people, scamming people, etc.

I hear this thing about him changing from my Sister in Law. It's ridiculous. The guy is the same moral atrocity he's always been and it's obvious. Christians who support him are either in denial or they are hypocrites.

That is the big thing that indicts the current Republican base. They had other options. Clinton was a very flawed candidate and a number of Republicans would, if everything else happened as it did with the Russian involvement along with Comey dropping the late bomb on her, have beaten her worse than Trump did. They did not have to pick an atrocity like Trump to win. But they did.

Just to put into perspective since you mentioned Kasich: The last RealClearPolitics average of polls for Kasich vs. Clinton was reported on May 4, 2016. It had Kasich up on Clinton by 7.4 percentage points. That is a lot. On the same day, that average had Clinton up on Trump by 3.2 percentage points. So Kasich was running 10.6 percentage points stronger against Clinton than Trump was.

Yes that's popular vote and the Electoral College picks the President. But get real. Kasich would've been a much stronger candidate against Clinton.

Yet the Republican base chose this totally immoral, dishonest man over a thoughtful, honest man like Kasich. It tells you something about the Republican base. The Republican base is a problem for both the Republican Party and for this country. The people that remain in it need to be defeated. They don't need to be coddled. They don't need to be understood. They need to be defeated.

There are variations. But yes I've been posting the same sort of things. And I will do it again: For many years I defended the Republican base. Liberals said Republicans are ignorant, hateful people. And I argued that wasn't the case.

But then Trump happened and the Republican base chose Trump when they had other options who were much better people and who would've beaten Clinton worse than Trump did. So I had to face reality. The liberals had been right. Maybe not in terms of ALL Republicans. But the Republican base does have a critical mass of ignorant, hateful people. And that mass is controlling the Republican Party right now.

Plus a lot of the people who were Republicans who are NOT ignorant, hateful people have now left the Republican Party. So it's even worse.
