The New Dominion?


There is a new look coming for a new decade. I hope that those of you who have followed this blog stick around. Obviously it's not finished or in place, but it is coming...eventually.

The Old Dominion - now a New Dominion?


When you look at the Virginia State Flag, does something stand out for you? It's just a blue flag with the state seal. There is a figure, possibly a lictor, standing on the chest of a fallen tyrant and the words below describing what you see, "Sic Semper Tyrannis" (Thus always to Tyrants)


It's a Latin phrase attributed to Marcus Iunius Brutus, one of the people who assassinated Julius Caesar. It is a shortened version of the phrase "Sic semper evello mortem tyrannis" ("Thus always I bring death to tyrants")

Am I the only one who sees profound irony in the fact that this flag flies over the Virginia Statehouse? Do those new legislators or the donkey the progs elected governor ever look UP? 

No, I'm not calling on anyone to end these elected morons, I think that they will be voted from office and that balance and sanity will be restored to Virginia. 

I simply find that the firearms issue is the hill that they wish to make their last stand on - in Virginia. Liberal Massachusetts has allowed itself to be owned by people very different from those who founded the place, but Virginia? Really?

Tyrants have a difficult time establishing a beachhead when everyone around them is armed to the teeth.

  1. There's little reason to believe politicians can read English, much less Latin.

    1. One thing is certain. They don't read history (providing that they can read).

  2. As a former Virginia resident, I don't even recognize the place anymore. How on earth did these God fearing, decent folk fall so far from reason?

    I lived in Prince William County, VA for three years (1997-2000), and the state was solid red. Beet red. What happened?

    1. Yes, and I was there before that. But perhaps it was a result of rampant Obamanation?

    2. That's my guess. I've read the majority of the demonrats live near DC where they work.

    3. The Obama Administration saw exponential growth in government hiring, and most of them were Democrats.

    4. D.C. leaked all over the place, is what happened.

      The Virginians didn't change, they just got demographically overwhelmed by commuters.

  3. Likely they don't view themselves as tyrants. After all they're doing all this for the good of their constituents who cannot be trusted to do the right thing.

    1. Yes, of course. Colonists are like naughty children who need to be controlled and occasionally spanked.

      That was the language used (almost exactly) by King George and Lord North when they provoked a revolution.

  4. The concern I'm getting over Virginia is the stuff we read about them gerrymandering the state so that no constitutionalist will ever get elected again. That's the stuff that has to be watched, and I'm afraid it can't be undone by court cases or anything except another administration doing it.

    1. I don't know how this situation will be repaired, if it is to be repaired.

      The election of Donald Trump forestalled a lot of trouble that would have happened had Hillary been elected. The situation in Virginia is the same and not the same.

    2. Seconded! Multiple reports and analyses all point to these Tyrants (Democrats) creating a legal environment in which they can never be removed from power through the ballot box or the jury box.

      After the op-ed put out by NBC, I would not be surprised if the Virgina Democrats are not trying to figure out how to pass a law that will make it illegal to vote conservative because we don't believe in all of their claptrap. Maybe a poll test to make sure you are not rascist, non-pro LGBTQ..., not pro-life, not anthroprogenic climate change, etc..

    3. Oh, they can be removed. I'm not suggesting retroactive birth control, which these progs shouldn't mind because they're all about abortion. But the solution to the problem that they cause is one that nobody wants to discuss (including me) when it gets to a certain point.

    4. Yes, gerrymandering is okay when you're a demonrats; but not if you're Conservative.

      Delete
  5. Almost a certainty (P)regressives are intent on happenings in Virginia so they can replicate Virginia in their own states. Add to that billionaires willing to pay them to do it and more will come.

    Do I have answers? Not for publication.

  6. As we have our own problems with donkeys here in the PNW, the good people of Virginia will have to resolve their issues themselves.

    I am looking forward to the new look, LL.

    Thanks for the post.

    1. The new look will include a Virtual Mirage search engine that won't link the search back to the searcher. In that it's not unique, because Duck-Duck-Go offers that too. But I'm trying to create something cool in conjunction with the blog.

    2. Sweet! I do like the new look.
      As for Virginia, Massachusetts, and this whole country; I find myself wondering how we got to this point.

      But then I remember the demonrats have removed God from almost everywhere and that explains a lot.

    3. Yes, LindaG, it's their strategy and methodology.

    1. That's just the logo for the new look. The new view will be very different, and hopefully better.

  8. New is good. When we get a bunch of democrats in control, it's amazing how they can ignore the will of the people. Of course we've been watching this in California for ten years.

  9. well you know the old saying, giving someone enough rope to hang himself with. that's the feel of it right now. we as a people are going thru the peaceful steps to resolve this already long train of abuses so we will have the moral high ground and hopefully the blessings of GOD almighty when we go to other means. we recognize that taking a life is a terrible thing and don't enter into it lightly. that said, the dims are about to run out of rope.... you won't believe it. they filed a bill to prohibit the releasing of more than one balloon into the air per hour per person. it's like they're making fun of us now. like, look at me I can pass any crazy thing in the world and you can't stop me. we're looking alright, and getting madder by the minute. ....I wouldn't plan any va. vacations for the spring or summer.

  10. I'm looking forward to the new, gentler, inclusive face of VM. And I'm looking forward to the Bloomberg shill goon squad getting the order of the boot when the Old Dominion votes.
