Civil War event at DuCard Vineyards
Stonewall Jackson “March on DuCard Vineyards”
August 6, 2011
Join us for a great Civil War 150th anniversary commemorative event. Stonewall Jackson and his troops will be visiting the tasting room and we'll be releasing our new 2nd Corps wine for his, and your, enjoyment. This limited edition wine commemorates his march over the mountains down the road from DuCard, with 25,000 troops on the way to the battle of Fredericksburg.
The re-enactors will also make camp that night at the winery and will be available to demonstrate life of soldiers on the move, including demonstrations of cooking, weaponry, fife and drum music and more. It all should be quite a spectacle !
Event is free. Family and dog friendly. (Actual march time scheduled for 2 PM)

And most of all, the Cut, Cap and Balance Act is a much-needed plan that will return the United States to the path of economic prosperity and freedom for which our Founding Fathers knew we were destined."
Congressman Randy Forbes
OUR HEAVENLY FATHER , GREAT ARCHITECT OF THE UNIVERSE AND GIVER OF LIFE.
WE THANK YOU FOR THIS CIRCLE OF FRIENDS AND FELLOW PATRIOTIC AMERICANS. AS WE ALL PRAY FOR THE SURVIVAL OF OUR NATION. "ONE NATION UNDER GOD" WE HAVE THE FAITH IN YOU, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER THAT OUR NATION WILL CONTINUE TO BE IN YOUR HANDS. WE SEE THE FAITH AND WISDOM HANDED DOWN FROM OUR FOUNDING FATHERS RE-EMERGING ACROSS OUR GREAT LAND.
WE MUST BE PATIENT AS THESE TIMES WILL PASS AND OUR NATION WILL ONCE AGAIN BE ABLE TO CARRY ON AND CONTINUE IT'S DESTINY ON A JOURNEY STARTED OVER 235 YEARS. WE MUST REMEMBER THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IN THIS WORLD. WE SAY THIS NOT OUT OF ARROGANCE, BUT OUT OF PRIDE AND GRATEFULNESS.
THERE ARE TIMES WHEN WE ARE GOVERNED BY FOOLS AND MAD MEN AND THERE ARE TIMES WHEN WE ARE GOVERNED BY GOOD AND RIGHTEOUS WISE MEN. WE MUST NEVER LOOSE FAITH IN OURSELVES AND ESPECIALLY NEVER LOOSE FAITH IN OUR COUNTRY. WE MUST FIGHT THAT THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION IS PROTECTED.
WE PRAY HEAVENLY FATHER THAT YOU WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE US OPTIMISM AND COURAGE TO CARRY ON IN OUR FIGHT TO PROTECT THIS COUNTRY WHICH HAS GIVEN FREEDOM AND LIBERTY TO MILLIONS AND MILLIONS FROM AROUND THE WORLD. WE ARE STILL THAT BEACON OF HOPE FOR MILLIONS OF SUPPRESSED PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD.
WE SHALL COME TO THE AID OF OUR COUNTRY IN NOVEMBER 2012.
WE PRAY IN THE NAME OF THE GOD OF ABRAHAM AND OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

Same-sex advocates have no intention of declaring victory in New York and calling it quits. The goal is not to advance “equality,” the goal is to redefine marriage until existing sexual norms are no longer in existence. Counterfeit forms of marriage cheapen and undermine real marriage. The union of a man and a woman in a committed marriage is the foundation of a stable society. Traditional marriage and family are too important for society to experiment with to advance a political agenda.
Social science and history concur: men, women, and children are more likely to succeed emotionally, financially, and educationally within a two-parent, mother-father, married family. Marriage, properly defined, matters."

I find this so sad. She truly earned this medal... American Lindsey Vonn will have to forfeit her Gold Medal on Friday.
The International Olympic Committee announced today that it has taken back the gold medal previously awarded to American skier Lindsey Vonn and given it to U.S. President Barack Obama.

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

Most understand that we can only spend what we bring in.
Come to GCRC:Alive! to hear Thomas G. Matthes deliver the story of “The Pencil and the Broken Window” and see how that maxim pertains to Washington and the Debt Limit Talks.
The early 20th Century debate between F. A. Hayek and John Meynard Keynes has reared again amid the fiscal insolvency with our Federal Treasury. Mr. Matthes, journalist, teacher, writer, and historical advisor, will distill economic theory down to everyday examples in our lives.
This open forum is sponsored by The Greene County Republican Committee and will be hosted by The Blue Ridge Café in Ruckersville on Monday evening, July 25th, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

“It is ridiculous for the current administration to devalue the currency and then complain oil companies have higher profits. Nor is it fair to rail against so-called Big Oil. After all, it is you and I who own Big Oil.
Mutual funds own 29.5 percent. Pension funds own 27.0 percent. Individual investors own 23.0 percent. And 14.0 percent is held in IRAs. About 5 percent is owned by other institutional investors, and only the last 1.5 percent is held by corporate management.”

“Today, there are those that would say that America is not great. There are those that believe our nation is no different from other nations around us. There are those that are willing to allow our nation to fall to the same fate as countries like Greece. There are those that would express regret for America’s success. These notions are frightening, because the moment we begin to apologize for America is the moment we begin to spread roots that choke out any seeds of success for our nation. The moment we stop believing that our nation is special is the moment we will cease to be special.
I refuse to buy into the idea that America is mediocre or that she is like any other nation in the world. America is a nation that was born to be extraordinary. The American experiment is worth preserving. Our freedoms are exceptional. And to boast about these freedoms is not only allowable, it is necessary.
I believe America’s greatest days are ahead of us, but we must realize that the direction of our nation's future lies within our own ability to cling to the uniqueness of America. That is what the Fourth of July is. It is a reminder that the freedoms we enjoy as Americans should not just be acknowledged – they should be celebrated.
So this weekend, as you give your child or grandchild that extra popsicle, gather with friends and family at the beach or around the grill, or sit with your loved ones on the old quilted blanket watching the glittering display of fireworks go off in the sky, remember that you are a part of something exceptional. And that exceptionalism is worth celebrating.”
Congressman Randy Forbes
