In Case You Missed It
Next Meeting of the Middlesex GOP Committee
Due to a conflict with the public hearing about the 2019 proposed Budget by the Board of Supervisors, our upcoming MCRC meeting will be Wednesday, April 18, beginning at 7:00 p.m. at Cooks Corner Public Conference Room, 2693 General Puller Highway, just east of Saluda. Come a little early to enjoy some time to socialize.
"A conversation with Jacob Walker" will be the program. Jacob, a recent high school graduate, lives in Middlesex. He's articulate, ambitious, and innovative with some interesting accomplishments already under his belt.
Politically, he's conservative (we'll learn how that happened). Jacob is beginning his undergraduate work at Rappahannock Community College with plans to attend M.I.T. He has some ideas about starting a young conservatives group at RCC--something MCRC has wanted to do for a long time. We hope you will make plans to come, meet this young man!
The FY2019 proposed BOS Budget will be given public hearing the following night, April 19, at the historic courthouse beginning at 7:00 p.m. All of us should be interested in attending this hearing and about what is being proposed for $26,246,196. The budget proposal will be an item for discussion at the MCRC meeting.
Please note: This change of date is for April only. MCRC will return to our regular third Thursday night meetings, May 17.
Guests and Members are invited to attend.
BEST POLITICAL QUOTE OF ANY ERA:
"The Budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome will become bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance."
Cicero, 55 B.C.
So, we've evidently learned nothing over the past 2,073 years!
1. The Governor of California was jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumped out and attacked the Governor's dog, then bit the Governor on the ass.
2. The Governor started to intervene, but reflects upon the movie "Bambi," and realizes he should stop, because the coyote was only doing what is natural.
3. He called animal control. Animal Control captured the coyote and billed the State $400 testing it for diseases and $700 for relocating it.
4. He called a veterinarian. The vet collected the dead dog and billed the State $800 testing it for diseases.
5. The Governor went to hospital and spent $4,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote, and, on getting his bite wound bandaged.
6. The running trail got shut down for 6 months while Fish & Game conducted a $400,000 survey to make sure the area was now free of dangerous animals.
7. The Governor spent $50,000 in state funds implementing a "coyote awareness program" for residents of the area.
8. The State Legislature spent $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.
9. The Governor's security agent was fired for not stopping the attack. The state spent $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with additional special training on the nature of coyotes.
10. PETA protested the coyote's relocation, and filed a $15 million suit against the state.
1. The Governor of Texas was rolling along in his wheel chair with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumped out and attacked his dog.
2. He shot the coyote dead with his state-issued pistol, and kept rolling. The Governor spent $2.50 on a .45 ACP hollow-point cartridge.
3. Buzzards ate the dead coyote.
And that, amigo, is why California is broke, and, the great State of Texas prospers.
Looks like Florida has a sheriff like Arizona had.
Polk County Florida Sheriff - "You kill a policeman it means no arrest....no Miranda rights...no negotiations...nothing but as many bullets as we can shoot into you...PERIOD."
Another deputy was wounded and a police dog killed.
The murderer was found hiding in a wooded area. As soon as he took a shot at the SWAT team, officers opened fire on him. They hit the guy 68 times.
Naturally, the liberal media went nuts and asked why they had to shoot the poor, undocumented immigrant 68 times.
Sheriff Grady Judd told the Orlando Sentinel: "Because that's all the ammunition we had."
Now, is that just about the all-time greatest answer or what??
The Coroner also reported that the illegal alien died of natural causes.
When asked by a reporter how that could be, since there were 68 bullet wounds in his body, he simply replied: (BEST QUOTE ever) . ..
"When you are shot 68 times you are naturally gonna die."
To many Americans, conservatism and environmentalism are mutually exclusive ideologies. But to residents of Virginia's Middle Peninsula, the two go hand-in-hand.
Like his father, his grandfather, and his great-grandfather, J.C. Hudgins has spent his entire life in Mathews, Va., making his living off the Chesapeake Bay. Read Full Article HERE.
THOUGHTS about PROGRESSIVE SENSITITY
It’s been in the news recently that the rest of the EU is very upset with Poland complaining that Poland is not taking in its fair share of muslim migrants. Poland is refusing to take them in. So now the EU is proposing strict sanctions to punish Poland. Poland responded in saying that they’ll take the sanctions over the migrants. Ha! Kudos to Poland!
WELCOME to the Republican Party
Recently, while I was working in the flower beds in the front yard, my neighbors stopped to chat as they returned home from walking their dog. During our friendly conversation, I asked their little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said she wanted to be President someday.
Both of her parents are Democratic Party members, and they were standing there, so I asked the little girl, "If you were President, what would be the first thing you would do?"
She replied... "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."
Her parents beamed with pride!
"Wow,... what a worthy goal," I said. "But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that!"
"What do you mean?" she replied.
So I told her, "You can come here to my house, mow the lawn, pull the weeds, trim my hedge, and I'll pay you $50. Then you can go over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use to buy food and a new house."
She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over to do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?"
I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."
Her parents aren't speaking to me anymore.
