Mega Budget, Bad Laws, Drag Queens, and Hair Discrimination

Dear Friends,

As we look forward to the 2020 Session of the Virginia General Assembly, please pray for our Commonwealth. Here are a few updates on issues which may be of interest to you:

  • 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Resolutions
  • Parental Rights - Vaccinations
  • Loudoun Schools fundraising for the LGBT extremists supported by your tax dollars
  • Bad Budget Proposals from Gov. Northam
  • More bad bills filed - by category

2nd Amendment Sanctuary Resolutions

As the Virginia Democrats move toward dismantling the foundations of liberty which were birthed in Virginia, patriotic citizens are not retreating. Check out this video of one patriotic Virginian sharing her concerns with her local elected officials.... I encourage everyone who can to attend VCDL Lobby Day on January 20th- more info here.

Parental Rights - Vaccinations

Virginia, there is a pre-filed bill on the table that will emancipate children to make medical decisions regarding vaccinations without parental consent.

However you feel about vaccines, this is about parental rights.

The government is trying to come in between parents and their children. We have the right to have input on our children’s medical care. This is a complete overstep. No one knows children better than their parents do. More information is available here....

 

Loudoun Schools Fundraising for the LGBT Extremists

If you are the old-fashioned type like me, when you think of schools, you think of academics and maybe sports. Fast forward to today. Taking a look at the category of :

THINGS YOUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE DOING WITH YOUR TAX DOLLARS

The hideous and often demonic-looking misfits called Drag Queens, who have recently found a niche in kid’s story hours in public libraries (funded with tax dollars), are the featured entertainment in a fundraising event hosted at Northern Virginia Community College (also funded with tax dollars). The proceeds of all this will go to DC Pride, an organization that promotes preferential treatment for sexually deviant activity (in schools funded with our tax dollars).

Promotional emails advertising for this Drag Queen fundraising event were sent out to parents of Loudoun Public School Parents through the school email network, (also funded with your tax dollars).

Parent and Child Loudoun will be meeting on January 13th; topics include: Drag Queen Fundraiser, Chromebooks, Diversity Books, Impact of Policy 1040, Family Life Education and hear from newly elected LCPS School Board Member, John Beatty! Light refreshments will be served.

RGGI has little, if any, impact on overall carbon emissions, according to the Congressional Research Service (CRS). "From a practical standpoint, the RGGI program’s contribution to directly reducing the global accumulation of GHG [Green House Gas] emissions in the atmosphere is arguably negligible," CRS wrote, noting that the program's impact is more political than environmental.
