I grew up in Martinsville. It’s a small mill and furniture-manufacturing town in the Piedmont district of Virginia. The ever-decreasing population is an eclectic mix of socialists, rednecks and chronically unemployed “victims” governed by a nest of corrupt democrats. I fit in there like a foot in a glove.
My husband of 30 years comes from beautiful Richlands, VA (Richlands….aaaahhhh), but he grew up in Canebrake and Berwind West Virginia. We’ve lived in Henrico, VA for the past 25 years. Our first grandchild was born on Sept. 29, 2007. Our son is 31 and is a computer programmer. Always a groomsman, never a groom, he’s an all-around nice guy who loves to travel.
I’m a black and white kind of person who doesn’t have much use for “nuance”.
The word intellectual makes me a little nauseated.
I believe in good and evil and could care less what happened in someone’s childhood that made them evil.
I believe that God created Heaven, Earth and mankind. It always amazes me that folks who consider the Holy Bible some kind of ignorant, right-wing, religious fanaticism are the same ones who believe in a giant galactic explosion that created organisms which turned into monkeys that magically transformed into humans.
I am an unapologetic, flag-waving, patriotic Republican.
I believe that corn is food, NOT fuel.
I believe the National Education Association has turned the public school system into a machine that manufactures little androgynous socialists.
I believe in mandatory sentencing for anyone convicted of raping a child and I loathe those who advocate for “rehabilitation” of the rapist as much as I loathe the rapist.
I believe that our colleges and universities should NOT hire PLO spokesmen, domestic terrorists, members of the KKK or members of the Soros Open Society Institute.
