dear Sterling American,

There's a lot going on besides the fight to destroy Christmas in July. (Jump to that after these news items)

There's the refreshing thunderstorm going on. Then there's the earthquake the other day.

Governor McDonnell Leads With Surplus!

The only government in the United States with a surplus is the commonwealth of Virginia with a $200 million surplus. Congrats to Gov. Bob McDonnell and the state legislators who cooperated. Don't expect the news media or the Pulitzer Prize committee to call him about it. He will restore some paycuts to state employees of course. Only in Virginia.

California, New York, Maryland face bankruptcy. Liberals run those states.

>>>Christmas Carols Being Sung In Loudoun

Speakers are warming up to ask the board to vote down the publicly posted and scheduled vote (annouced July 7 and posted officially) on eliminating nativities and other religious displays at the courthouse.

Some are getting ready to sing. To help the singers or to help the speakers here are some links to songs.

>>>Why is the board doing this now?

Two words: Liberal Majority

Nobody is expecting a move to abolish religious expression in July. The liberal majority says people are not thinking of Christmas right now and that is why its on their agenda.

Its liberal logic. Kind of duplicitous, oddly Scrooge-like in concept.

The agnostics and their allies are relentless and have an agenda which this board of supervisors majority will respect as "decent" and "reasonable" even while the proposed policy bulldozes the nativity and religious expression.

WTOP, WAVA and WMAL running reports

Some of the early reports include debates and presentations from the anti-relgious freedom spokesmen who dominate the news media of course. "Lets keep the courthouse free of clutter" they argue. Look for those radio reports. Thank you.

>>>Crowd expected Monday Night 7 p.m.

There will be MANY speakers, a number similar to the crowd that turned out in December when the Board did a surprise attack last winter. But with summer heat, vacations and the posting of the item this past week, many speakers and a large crowd shows that year round liberals will not get away with killing religious expression.

>>>324 people from all over the USA, 1 from Italy sign the petition

1 from Italy, several from each of ten states, and mostly Virginia citizens

Is your signature on it. Have you gotten your neighbor to sign it?
(read the comments from 324 citizens too)

>>>Leesburg Town Council Asks Board to Preserve Religious Liberty

Fortunately, my "colleagues" (fellow elected officials) on the Leesburg Town Council voted unanimously to write a letter to the Supervisors urging them to allow all displays for "religious and heritage traditions." Click hear to read the story about Councilman Ken Reid's initiative on the Leesburg Council:

Thank you to Councilman Ken Reid, he is called "the Jew who saved Christmas" in Leesburg. Shalom!

>>> In Case You Just Joined Us

The Supervisors have posted a motion to kill religoius expression at the courthouse (again) as they announced July 7, for Tuesday July 20, but due to public pressure and other reasons may DEFER a decision until SEPTEMBER

I will ask Tuesday my fellow Supervisors to settle this issue now and not drag it out.

I asked them July 7 to settle it once and for all when the "judicial grounds advisory committee" brought it up again.

Apparently there is a very special reason (see above 2 words LIBERAL MAJORITY) why this the only citizens advisory committe in the history of Loudoun county to COMPLETELY ignore the 9 to zero vote to allow religious expression and come back the same year with a proposal (again) to abolish religious expression.
