The Obama administration is claiming these detainees are only noncriminal or low-risk individuals, but at least one of them, one Anthony Orlando Williams, a Jamaican, was first arrested on charges of child abuse and simple assault and battery. Low-risk, indeed. I’m sure Mr. Williams is a fine, upstanding gentleman, but it makes me wonder how many of the other detainees are in that same category? And one more thing; since when did someone breaking our immigration laws become a noncriminal? Isn’t that a legitimate question to ask?

Smitty on The Other McCain tells us about Susan Stimpson, a Republican candidate for Lieutenant Governor in Virginia. Yeah, she’s a babe, but she also has one heck of a good record.
- Cut overall real-estate taxes 3 years in a row, 7 cents below the equalized rate ($11M)
- Abolished the business tax (BPOL)
- Reduced the boat tax
- Zero’d out the Rt 17 tax district
- Eliminated Falmouth/George Washington District Impact Fees
- In 2010, 2nd consecutive budget less than the year before (not done since 1965)
- Rolled back general admin staff to 2004 levels
Sounds like a great candidate to me!
