In America one can rise above one's birth and circumstances, but you can't rise above your level of intelligence. Kerry seems to have been born lucky, and married lucky, but beyond that seems to have not one single mitigating, socially redeemable trait. The Moron Cycle of Life:
- Morons will be morons
- Morons don't KNOW they're morons.
- In fact, morons typically think they're BRILLIANT.
- Most do-gooders, big-government types, and authoritarians are morons.
- Morons breed with other morons and give birth to an inordinate number of little morons.
- ...who grow up to breed with other morons and give birth to...well, you know.
- Morons elect other morons to office with depressing regularity.
- Go back to number 1 and repeat.
This "Moron Cycle of Life" is killing America.
Thus endeth the lesson.

We have suffered another humiliating attack at the hands of one (or more) of the human / animal hybrids espousing a religious theology that condones violence against women and pedophilia, among other quirks, like beheadings.
Supposedly standing between us and these animals is our fabled FBI and NSA.
Where were these agencies as the shooters hatched their plots in Fort Hood, the Washington Navy Yard, Garland, TX, and Chattanooga?
Wait a minute. Did the FBI know that Major Nidal Hasan was in email communication with a radical sheik in Yemen who was later killed with a drone?
Yes, as a matter of fact they did knew all about that communication. Did 13 people die as Hasan climbed on top a table, shouted 'Allahu Akbar' and pulled the trigger repeatedly? [Click Read More below for rest of the column]
In light of the recent terrorist event in Chattanooga, will the Beach City Council now withdraw its approval of a mosque in our midst?
Probably not, but we really must consider removing the Confederate monument at Princess Anne.
Council continues to be of the belief that there are such things as "moderate" mohammedans, the result being that citizens of Virginia Beach will continue to be sold down the river in the name of political correctness.
I am disgusted and frustrated. One crazed white person, who just happened to have had his picture made with a Confederate battle flag, goes on a shooting spree and his action is cause enough to call for the destruction of Southern heritage.
Yet, a crazed mohammedan goes and kills several of America's finest and everyone wants to know his motive instead of addressing the threat.
It may just be me, but: [Click Read More below to read rest of the letter]
Submitted by a reader in Portsmouth from the Internet:
Here is an e-mail purportedly sent to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune after an article he published concerning a name change for the Washington Redskins. (Original author unknown)
Dear Mr. Page: I agree with our Native American population. I am highly insulted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins.
One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward.
Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians. If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.
The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone. It's offensive to us white folk.

Former Talk Radio Personality Known as The Specialist
Retired from his radio show June 1
It’s a Bird, No it’s a Plane, No it was a DOG!.....A golden Lab
Before we go to the Lab I guess we should go back to June 1st when I officially retired from Broadcasting.
Almost a decade broadcasting was a nice run but I felt it was time to pursue other endeavors while there was still time and I was still able.
Shortly after June 1st I was walking on the beach reflecting on my future with my new trusted ice water tumbler when I was struck from behind by a 60 lb. golden lab chasing at full speed a ball. I am told they run as fast as 18 miles per hour. That day I was knocked semi-unconscious, fractured 3 ribs and punctured my left lung which completely collapsed.
When I reached the ER they did an emergency Hemo-Thorax surgery on my chest cavity………NOT PRETTY.
Well kind reader, you are probably wondering where this story is going…….?
I was trying to recover from my injuries and realized I could finally do the story I had always wanted to do, so I went to Disney World in Orlando Fla.
Attached is the second ad paid for personally by City Treasurer John Atkinson saying “No to Light Rail” that was in the Beacon on Sunday, July 19, 2015.
It gives an update of the response that John has received and what he would like to do in the future to keep this issue alive and bring a referendum forward.
Please forward this on to friends and family to continue to voice your “No to Light Rail” and assist John in this effort.
I am going to continue to support John in this endeavor so that the city does not waste our current and future tax dollars.
Everyone working together will help to reach our goal.

Trying to have a normal conversation with a liberal is like trying to eat Jello with chop sticks.
I used to engage liberals in conversation. I found their minds to be completely nailed shut. A fellow I worked with years ago called me a hater because I wrote an article criticizing Bill Clinton.
I asked a lady I know in Atlanta about the difference between good and evil. She told me it’s all gray area, we are not to judge. Now we’re racists if we criticize Barack Obama.
Millennials are kids who came of age around 2000. Many of them are politically liberal. About half blame the United States for most of the troubles in today’s world. They have little knowledge of US history, WW II, Korea, economics, or the reality of what we’re facing in the Middle East.

President of the Thomas Jefferson Institute for Public PolicyNow that the Supreme Court has determined that the Obamacare entitlement is here to stay, let's work toward reforming our health care system in ways that make sense.
Virginia is one of 36 states that still has Certificate of Public Need laws (COPN) on the books. This law stems from a federal mandate more than 40 years ago, and it has not substantively changed in nearly 20 years. Some states have wisely chosen to rid themselves of these antiquated and burdensome regulations. Unfortunately, Virginia is not one of them.
In the Old Dominion, if a healthcare provider wants to add beds, purchase an MRI machine or start performing open-heart surgery it must first go through a lengthy and costly application process so that state regulators can determine if there is "a public need" for the service.
