Very Important Note to my Virginian Friends.
Many of you know the good work our Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is doing for our state, and if you are reading the news at all you are also aware of the attack’s he is receiving in the press.
A couple weeks ago I had the privilege / opportunity to attend a fund raiser for our Attorney General (AG). I know and trust the organizations who were stressing the importance of financially supporting AG Cuccinelli’s office, but I was having a hard time understanding WHY? Didn’t he just get elected? During the fundraiser, I had the opportunity to meet him, and I asked him that very question. He told me that while the press has been extremely critical of all that his office is doing, they were not providing his office a forum to respond to the criticisms. THEY WERE NOT EVEN PRINTING HIS LETTERS TO THE EDITORS in response to the attacks! He mentioned to me over five prominent print media outlets in our commonwealth where this was the case.
Therefore, the private funds he was raising would be used to educate the Virginian Citizenry about the issues facing our commonwealth and the lawsuits his office has initiated – SINCE THE FREE PRESS was not adequately reporting his side.
I left that fund raiser so angry. Honestly, I thought if I WAS taking my family on a family vacation this year, I would cancel my vacation so I could financially support his effort (among others) like this. I was so angry – I could not believe that OUR “F-R-E-E PRESS” was so biased that they would not even print letters to the editor written by an Attorney General, THAT WAS ELECTED by we the people, the citizens of our Commonwealth.
After reviewing the web-site and noticing that the donations given on his web-site state they are going to his campaign fund, I called and spoke with the Director of his local office in Fairfax. The previous Saturday, I had only 2 – 3 minutes actually speaking with the AG. His Director gave me the unvarnished truth of THE BATTLE that they were up against, and that while the contribution web-site wouldn’t change, that within a week the public would begin to see evidence of things that the funds were being utilized for.
First and foremost they would be conducting educational forums to present the various issues. The frequency and venue’s of these forum’s would vary, but knowing that private funds were being utilized they do their best to utilize the funds in such a way they would get the biggest bang for the buck.
The least costly venues he stated would be webinar’s (which would be the first medium used), and conference calls but that the AG would also be speaking throughout the commonwealth at various events and there could be some selective Print and a Media advertisements. If you are part of an organization that would like to have the AG come speak, contact his office. The primary focus would be educating the citizens about the issues, and each opportunity would be on different issues and the frequency would be AT LEAST once a quarter. He informed me the first one would be on the Health Care Lawsuit.
I write all that for two reasons:
1. If you can support his office, please do:
2. His first event is a Web-Cast, and is Wednesday June 16th at 10 PM.
Please Register to be on this web-cast, and get as many folks as you can on this. To follow is information directly from his office:

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has received a great deal of national attention recently for the lawsuit that the Commonwealth of Virginia has filed against the Federal government regarding the newly passed Federal health care law (Commonwealth of Virginia vs. Sibelius) The Federal government responded on May 24, 2010 with a motion to dismiss the suit. This was an anticipated response and only the second step in a multi-step process that will play out in the coming months.
Join us for a free live town hall meeting interactive video webcast, Wednesday, June 16, 2010 at 8 PM as Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli explains this multi-step process. In addition, Attorney General Cuccinelli will discuss the Constitutional issues involved and respond to questions from the participants.
Following the webcast, there will be a question and answer period with AG Cuccinelli. But, you must sign up at either http://www.Cuccinelli.com/ or http://www.tvworldwide.com/vents/cuccinelli/100616/ to view the webcast.
The Attorney General's Office confirmed that another e-blast will go out to those that have signed up in advance, prior to the June 16th Town Hall Webcast. If you want to be in the know, then it is critical that you sign up now, or your name will not get entered in time of notification of events.
The Healthcare Law Suit is Not Specific to the State of Virginia, but to the entire United States Citizens. Congress did not listen to us, now it is a Federal Judge that will listen to the Constitution and Rule as to the Constitutionality of the issue under Law. Whether you agree or disagree with the Obama-care mandate, the Constitution.
I am also going to post this as a note that you can share with your friends.
Folks – ROME IS ON FIRE. The bias in the media is already rampant, and THE NEXT BAIL OUT could very well be the media that is financially bankrupt. I know I sound like a broken record, but we need to wake up.
Tell your friends.
