I am a life long resident of Fairfax County.

Gerry Connelly, a/k/a PORKCHOP has played a great part in the County's demise.

Don't beleive me -

Travel through Annandale.

Go to Culmore.

Go to Centreville.

Between the Koreans sloppy maintenance of their businesses and the illegals, teh illegals in schools, the drains on government servce, cops washing their cars at $30 a pop, this little porker needs to be voted out and let someone clean up this county.

He hasn't done nearly as much as he promised he would to remedy the flooding problems we have in Huntington. And on top of it I hear rumors that the reason the flood remediation is going so slow is that he and the County Board want to preserve Huntington as "affordabe housing". Best way to preserve "affordable housing" would be let it flood and become blighted. Wish I had known their plans when we paid $377,000 two and half years ago for a house in a neighborhood that the county wanted to keep values down in. I was raised in Fairfax County, as was my husband. First chance we get, we are selling and getting the hell out. THis County has gone so far down hill it is appalling...

Connelly is an embarrassment. He's a classic North Eastern elitist liberal that couldn't give 2 shits about the TAX PAYING working class in this county. His only agenda is protecting multi-cultural progressive movements so he can propel is political career to the next level. He could really care less about the mess he leaves behind.. He knows that Fairfax is bankrupt because of his overspending, so he's bailing to the next level (congress).

DO NOT VOTE for Connelly.

You can blame that squarely on the Republicans from the other parts of the state.

Rerun:

Believing in something after eight years of evidence indicate otherwise = you're no longer a thinker, you're a believer.

Why is there still a deficit? Why is there still welfare? Why are there still 15 Cabinet departments?

In short, what did the Republicans do between 2001 and 2006 on the issues you care about?

I thought there'd be more jobs after the tax cuts. Why is it that fewer jobs were created during Bush's Presidency than during Carter's? Why are wages still stagnating?

I thought businesses would share their profits with their workers? Oh wait, wages as a % of GDP are at 50-year lows, while profits as a % of GDP are at 50-year highs.

Why is it that the Dow is down 10% over the Bush Presidency? I thought tax cuts would be friendly to business?

More welfare = Someone that's not a Fortune 500 corporation receiving cash from the gov't -- why does that scare you so much?
Needle exchange program = WTF are you talking about?
Mandatory sentencing = so no more life sentences for stealing $25?
Neutering the military = Wait, you mean fighting two wars for 6+ years doesn't weaken the military?
Deregulation of banking = Gramm-Leach-Bliley were all Republicans. You really think Dodd-Frank-Kanjorski would've been a carbon copy of Gramm-Leach-Bliley?
Making nice with Iran = You mean like how Condi is doing?
Making nice with Syria = I guess you opposed Nixon's trip to China to split the Sino-Soviet alliance?
Making nice with Venezuela = 'Cause another war is just what the doctor ordered?
Socialized medicine = If it were so terrible, Canada and the UK would be voting in governments that abolish it. It it were so terrible, Canada and the UK would have shorter lifespans, higher infant mortality rates, and be spending more of their GDP on healthcare (Canada and the UK have longer lifespans, lower infant mortality, and spend less of their GDP on healthcare.)

Kaine on the campaign trail = So what? I don't see Republicans clamoring for a special session of the General Assembly, which meets anyway in January. Is the crisis really so severe that we need to meet now, as opposed to January?
Education taking a backseat = Hey wait, I thought you needed money to fund education?
NOVA taking it in the pants = Wait, isn't it the downstate Republicans who vote against road funding for NOVA? Isn't it the downstate Republicans who insist on NOVA tax dollars going to fund downstate schools?
Death penalty = FWIW, no one has gotten the death sentence since 1963 for anything BUT murder.

A fair trade for the seniors heading north to get lower-cost prescription drugs.

Canadian healthcare is less expensive, and yields longer lives and lower infant mortality. This is a fact.

No amount of fearmongering eliminates the fact that 50 million Americans are uninsured, and not all of these are 'healthy young people' doing so by choice.

When 'the market' stops working for people, don't act surprised that people turn against 'the market.'

It's those high taxes that are keeping Fimian down! If only taxes were cut some more, Fimian might've been able to reach his full potential! Never mind the people that did succeed during that timeframe.

The Ugly Truth About Canadian Health Care
David Gratzer


"My health-care prejudices crumbled not in the classroom but on the way to one. On a subzero Winnipeg morning in 1997, I cut across the hospital emergency room to shave a few minutes off my frigid commute. Swinging open the door, I stepped into a nightmare: the ER overflowed with elderly people on stretchers, waiting for admission. Some, it turned out, had waited five days. The air stank with sweat and urine. Right then, I began to reconsider everything that I thought I knew about Canadian health care. I soon discovered that the problems went well beyond overcrowded ERs. Patients had to wait for practically any diagnostic test or procedure, such as the man with persistent pain from a hernia operation whom we referred to a pain clinic—with a three-year wait list; or the woman needing a sleep study to diagnose what seemed like sleep apnea, who faced a two-year delay; or the woman with breast cancer who needed to wait four months for radiation therapy, when the standard of care was four weeks."

Reston,

I'm sure I can dig up some HMO horror stories where a HMO bureaucrat denied necessary care, or some horror stories from an emergency room.

So what do you have left?

Defending a system that (1) does not provide adequate care to 15-20% of the population, (2) costs 50-100% more as a percentage of GDP than other nations', and (3) does not yield superior results in terms of lifespan, infant mortality, or nearly any other measurable aspect of health care end results.

BTW, any excuses for the Katie Couric interview? Or is it 'selective editing' any time Palin puts her foot in her mouth?

If Palin can't handle ABC and CBS, how the Hell is she going to handle Putin or any of the other crazies?

formerhick76,

If so strongly desire to live in a socialist/communist country, there are plenty of places to pick from. I am not defending our medical care system, just saying socialized medicine is not the answer.

I think lifespan/infant mortality in this country has more to do with lazy Americans smoking, abusing drugs, drinking to excess, eating poor diets of junkfood, and not exercising.

The point on Palin is how the liberal media is not reporting from an unbiased position. Here is some good reading from a socialist newspaper http://www.agoracosmopolitan.com/home/Frontpage/2008/10/29/02753.html

Reston,

Don't be surprised if people start wanting more socialism if the PURE CAPITALISM isn't working out for them.

I mean, the rich folks wringing their hands about the oncoming of socialism could've hired more people in the past eight years, making McCain's election a formality in much the same way Bush I's was in 1988. It wasn't as if there wasn't enough money: corporate profits as a % of GDP reached 50-year highs.

Your claim that 'socialized medicine is not the answer' is a claim of faith. It seems to work out fairly well in other industrialized countries, and there is no large movement to dismantle socialized medicine in these other countries. (We're also near the bottom in terms of people's happiness with the system.)

Have you considered, even once, that a majority of people think Bush has done a crap job with this country, and are thus punishing Republicans and conservatives? Or are any defeats of Republicans the fault of Someone Else, a nefarious Other -- instead of just not being the right people for the current time?

Seriously, McCain voters today are like Hoover voters in 1932 or Carter voters in 1980. I just don't get it.

Socialism = National Welfare. Since 40% of Americans do not pay income tax, the redistributed wealth will come from the average tax payer = you and me. The very rich (politcians included) have lobbyists to protect them.

Who has controlled Congress since the economy took a down turn? Bush does not have complete control of this country.

FYI, I am not a Republican. The problem is neither the Republicans nor the Democrats have performed and a third party candidate does not stand a chance.

Why the Two-Party Political System Does Not Work

Reason 1
It is really one party, playing "good cop, bad cop". One side encourages unlimited selfishness, the other gullible generosity. One side is mindlessly warlike, the other mindlessly pacifist. They strive to differentiate themselves from each other, but each side serves their corporate masters, who are running the show, uncritically and efficiently.

Reason 2
The two parties act together to keep third parties out of the system except at the local level. Thus both Republicans and Democrats in Congress OK'd the introduction of electronic voting machines, whose purpose is to rig elections. Example in PennsylvaniaAs has been demonstrated in Pennsylvania, the corrupt two main parties are perfectly willing to act to prevent 3rd parties from being able to put their candidates on the ballot. The Green Party had a list of 50,000+ signatures to request being put on the ballot but because the judges in charge of verifying those lists were Democrats, the judges deliberately disqualified tens of thousands of signatures using the flimsiest of excuses possible. As a result, the Greens were artificially put below the minimum threshold for getting on the ballot. And who has the lawyer that led the charge against the Greens? Reed Smith, former attorney for John Kerry's presidential race.

Reason 3
The rise of punditry on both conservative and liberal sides means people are making money off of
-over-dramatizing fringe issues
-ignoring undramatic common issues where a reasonable concensus could be achieved
-ignoring highly important issues that elites don't want brought up.
Pundits steer clear of issues that might unite both sides, or aggressively mock and belittle anyone who brings them up -- taking any opportunity to call them fringe lunatics or conspiracy theorists, issues like:
-The systematic rigging of elections in 2000 and 2004 by removing Democrats from voting rolls, which even the Democratic Party fuss over.
-The controlled demolition of the World Trade Center by (most likely) CIA and Mossad on 9/11.
-The need to abolish the Federal Reserve, which is neither federal nor a reserve, but is the means by which bankers have rigged the US economy to make a killing.

Reason 4
The emphasis on "fair and balanced" journalism, which university journalism professors stress is so important, has meant that the only issues that are covered are ones that "both sides" approve of, i.e. the "balance" struck is between "right" and "left", and the "fairness" is fairness to them, not anyone else.
The implication is that no other viewpoint exists.

Yet the two-party system is not genuinely two independent parties in the first place, so truly the balance is essentially between two types of loyalist, at best, and the fairness is that of one loyalist against another. If you are not loyal to America's elites and their corporations, you are not allowed to take part.


To give you an example, I called up an NPR, which is partly taxpayer-funded, station asking why they had not covered the probable rigging of 2004 elections. They said they couldn't do so because it would not be a balanced show i.e. Republicans benefitted from the rigging so they would not take part. If NPR were to host such a show, which was unlikely they said, it would be a one-sided discussion involving the victims of fraudulent elections accusing the perpetrators and/or beneficiaries. In response to my assertion that the media have a duty to investigate wrongdoing, the producer simply ignored what I said.

Reason 5
Notice the mind-numbing mantra of both liberal and conservative establishment propagandists:
They say, "You must be either liberal or conservative."
Oh, really? Why believe that is true? It's a false choice. Choose neither. Liberal politicians and the liberal establishment are as useless and dishonest as conservative politicians and their organizations, because there are both merely faithful lackeys of the big business, almost always acting against your interests. In most countries there are many more political choices because they have proportional representation, which ensures that even small parties get seats in government.

Reason 6
The bogus differentiation between two parties has led to two different cultures, both freakish in their own way. Two separate cadres of culture-creators who find employment serving each mindset and demographic. For instance, there is liberal media that is inquisitive, frantic, sympathetic, and insistent that everyone is a victim. And there are conservative media are blaming, unsympathetic, morally self-righteous, and insistent that punishment cures all. Neither cadre of culture-creators wants to encourage self-criticism or critical thinking, because these defeat the mindless tribalism each espouses and profits from.

I won't argue that there are no problems with socialized medicine. However, several decades ago, my father had to have about a dozen operations on his back. While not a Canadian citizen, my father was living there legally and therefore his medical care was covered. As a grad student, I'm not sure how he would have ever paid for those operations had he been living in the states.

It's not as if our medical system is without problems. The fact is we have the most expensive and ineffective medical system of any modern industrial state. Yes people come here for the latest and greatest piece of medical electronic gadgetry..but that isnt what 99.9% of the people need. They need basic medical and preventive medical care.

I remember a recent TV news segment on the english medical system...and an American pregnant couple who happened to be living there and depending on their medical system was complaining that they had to pay for a sonargram..because their medical system didnt routinely provide them..only in cases where there is a need to they do a sonargram. Well guess what...thats probably the right answer. When my wife was pregnant that was the policy. And do you know what has driven all expectant mothers to get a sonargram? Lawsuits...and the fact that baby doctors are sued every time a perfect baby isnt delivered.
