My comment is regarding a letter under "Your Views" on Tuesday's editorial page titled “Beware of a wolf in sheep's clothing." I applaud her opinion that we should be aware and cautious of those voices on the Board of Supervisors who are calling our elected officials in Virginia “tyrants.” My comment is directed at those supervisors. Please show us, the public, the evidence used as the basis for those serious charges. It is so easy to throw out spurious serious charges without producing any evidence and many times those words are accepted as truth when they are empty without evidence.

In Jan of 2019, when democrats gained full power in Va, one of the first things they did was go for a gun grab of "assault weapons". In the initial version of the bill, there was a provision that legal gun owners, after either being force to register their weapons, submit to a "buyback" or just plain hand them over, would be also forced to "demonstrate compliance".

Fortunately, the gun grab was defeated, but only because there were two democrat Senators from rural districts that voted against it.

"Demonstrate compliance". Sounds a little tyrannical, don't you think? But that's the way unfettered democrats think

Doc Samson

Nah! When the Prog-Left employs tyranny, it's out of love, compassion, diversity and , ultimately, for our own good! You and I are just too darn stupid to understand that!

TheOneAndOnlyNuri

Well, I never said you were stupid. Ignorant and misinformed, yes. Afraid to own up to your own words? Most definitely.

Doc Samson

Asking for proof and then dismissing any proof provided is a great way to engage in critical thinking! Fascinating to watch the Prog-Left cult groupthink as they can do nothing but project onto others the exact accusations of which they are guilty. [lol]

Yes Doc, we hear you! You DEMAND to know what happened Jan 6th….by looking looking through a microscope into protesters actions the prior summer! Makes about as much sense as going all-in on an authoritarian wanna-be loser President who twice lost the popular vote, twice was impeached, and who’s personal friends, family, and business are under multiple serious, criminal investigations. Perhaps you should’ve joined the Moonies. Still a cult, but less volatile.

Ms. White, haven’t you learned now that Republicans don’t need proof or evidence. They can just lie with abandon.

Trump has established a cult of lies and conspiracies. That’s all it is. People are gullible, uninformed, and easily led enough to believe it. That’s the really sad part.

Says the Democrat who for 4 years cried foul over anything Donald Trump did throwing false accusation after false accusation with no facts to back up anything. Just partisan political lies with nothing to back up anything that Democrats said for years. Democrats have been lying to us well before Donald Trump came on the scene, so Blackhorsegirl would certainly know a lie when she saw one. That, truly is the really sad part!!

How many in tRump's inner circle have served time for their crimes during his reign of ignorance? Let me help you, three time more than any President in modern times. You tRujmp supportters have no morals, no character, no real patriotism. You are for the most part like tRump, lying deplorables. Lying deplorables who attempted a coup on this nation all in an attempt to install a pathological lying dictator. How crazy is all of that.....

Mr Incredible

About as crazy as this post.

Thank you Mr. Brown. Since they have no argument, how quickly they resort to adolescent tantrums and name calling. I think I’m going to stick with the “Happiness File.”

Those of us who know the truth don’t have to defend ourselves. Liars have to keep shrieking their lies or wallowing in the sewage of those lies loses meaning.
