Bix Beiderbecke was a leading jazz musician in the late 1920’s, tragically dying in 1931 at age 28 from poisonous”bathtub gin.”  One of his great hits was “I’m Comin’ Virginia” a classic double meaning, “cute” title for it’s time.  It could be the theme song for Tuesday, November 7, 2017 election for Democrats.  Virginia is today the political equivalent of the 20’s.

Virginia has 95 counties with one containing the District of Columbia, also known as Washington, DC so Virginia surrounds the one area in America that has an ethic quite different, if not opposed, to that of the nation.

Throughout all of America the ethic is that you get what you earn.  You are paid for what you make, but in Washington, DC you get paid for what you take.  The mindset of the District of Columbia is very different, in fact totally opposed to that of the people supporting it; those who pay for everything.  Thus we now refer to DC as “The Swamp” and those working in DC as “The Swamp People.”

One of the few places the ethics of the Swamp People appear is in the 15 of 95 counties of Virginia where they sleep.  They also eat, defecate, breathe, flatulate and vote in Virginia as they did on November 7, 2017 in an election much celebrated by Democrats who in the last eight years have lost over 1,000 Federal, State and local offices during the reign of President Barack Hussein Obama our first “black” and “white.” likely Communist and Muslim President.  We got the whole shootin’ match in one very tall, skinny guy with really big feet.  He could be a clown: He already has the shoes.

Meanwhile back in Virginia Swamp Republican Ed Gillespie runs for Governor of Virginia.  Ed had objected to Mr. Trump in the Primary Election and never kissed “The Donald’s” ring after his nomination or election so Ed was due for a political lesson and he got it when Ralph Northam, a non-descript Democrat beat him 54% to 45%.  Democrats were thrilled to the point most folks felt they should not be watching their enjoys.

The fact of the matter is that if Virginia had an electoral college system on the order of what we have nationally Swamp Republican Gillespie would have run away with it as he took 80 of the 95 counties running away with 75% to 25% voting margins!  So the truth of the matter is this election affirms the engine that put Donald J. Trump in the White House still has full steam in the boilers and is ready to crank out another national victory when the time comes as the malevolent media have been throwing acid for one year and Mr. Trump is still giving them the Twitter.

Meanwhile back in the swamp:  Donna Brazile released her book”Hacks” which is a “back up the Andy Gump truck” dump on Hillary as the Wicked Witch of Winnetka now rumored to be a preliminary, if not death blow to the Clinton’s ownership of the Democratic Party so Michelle Obama can run for President in a move to slip Barack back to where he can put his size 16 brogans on the desk in the Oval Office while Michelle plans multimillion Dollar vacations and Barack goes back to work to “make American grovel again!”

And so, as the sun sets again on Washington DC we settle down to an evening of CNN and MSNBC comedy shows where every panel has at least one, if not two, “black” journalists on it saying “ax” for “ask” to remind us of their culture, our guilt and why we should not be allowed to challenge them in any way for whatever they do.  At the end of the evening we will crawl into our adult size Dr. Dentons with “non-slip” rubber feet, say our prayers by the bed asking for God to send us an small asteroid to take out DC, preferably when the Trumps are abroad “Making America Great Again!”

Adrian Vance

Trained as a science teacher, with eight years classroom experience, he has been writing professionally since the age of 15. He was the youngest person to be published in Journal of the Illinois Academy of Science at 17 as a result of a paper he wrote suggesting a revision in the science teaching curriculum. Publication was accidental as his teacher headed the selection committee and his paper was sent to the printer in error. Nonetheless, it received positive response. It proposed teaching General Science, then Physics followed by Chemistry with Biology in the senior year given the then new molecular focus in Biology. During his college years he worked on the school newspaper, primarily as a photographer and did an occasional feature, some of which caused him to be called to the Dean's office. "You don't like the way we do things here?" was the usual opening remark followed by the expected suggestion. After his third year, exhausted and without direction, he left for one year, but returned, when Sputnik and Admiral Rickover's books documented a crisis in American education. He felt called to teach and completed a B.S. in Physical Science at Illinois State University with a major in chemistry, minor in biology, near minors physics and education. He did graduate work in both Illinois and California completing a California Life Diploma teaching credential in 1962. While teaching he saw many needs and opportunities in educational publishing so he wrote and produced educational materials, primarily filmstrips and sound recordings. He also wrote for photographic magazines as film work put him in touch with many photographic and production problems. He has 325 screen credits in educational, industrial film and filmstrip as a writer-producer. In 1976 he won the Learning Magazine “Best of the Year” award for his “You in the Universe” filmstrip series and the New York Film and Television Festival Silver Medal for “An Introduction to Cells” filmstrip series. For a partial database of Adrian’s publications please click on and you will see them listed by series title and publisher. Each series title included four to 30 filmstrips and all are not fully listed in this database. The grand total is over 800. Over that 30 years Mr. Vance also wrote other material: two books, published in New York: “UFO’s: The Eye and the Camera” for Barlenmir House and “Audiovisual Production” for Amphoto Books. He wrote and illustrated over 100 features and columns for photography magazines. He was a Founding Contributing Editor for Peterson's PhotoGraphic Magazine and the West Coast Editor of Popular Photography from 1974 to 1978, writing a monthly column for the magazine. As a result of underwater photography work he contributed to SKIN DIVER magazine in the 70's. His "Timing Waves to Enter The Sea" article, first appearing in SKIN DIVER, is now a chapter in a classified U.S. Navy Seals training manual. "UFO's, The Eye and the Camera" documents his "Two channel information theory for the analysis of events simultaneously seen and photographed." It is the first comparative analysis of vision and photography written with the idea of combining information from both sources into a single analysis that can be used scientifically and forensically. Mr. Vance is also credited with solving the mystery of how complete maps of Earth were drawn in antiquity and he rediscovered Captain Cook's secret method of locating Pacific islands so well their positions have only recently been improved. He is cited with discovering the method in the seventh edition of "The Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings," by Dr. Charles Hapgood and he later contributed to a definitive article on cartography in antiquity for The Smithsonian Magazine as they confirmed his method. On February 19, 1976 Mr. Vance got a “Certificate of Appreciation” award from the Los Angeles Police Department “in grateful recognition of his generosity in make available to officers of this Department the talents and training of his German Shepherd, Boris. The ready willingness of Mr. Adrian Vance to become involved and to make available his valuable dog in a potentially hazardous situation deserves the gratitude and approbation of the entire Los Angeles Police Department.” This incident was critical to the LAPD administration’s realization that trained dogs could be of value in police work and they are now employed by the LAPD. When the computer replaced film the school market audio-visual field he switched horses at full gallop and produced 460 computer educational disk systems for the Apple II computer over 15 years. During that time he became a professional broadcaster in the 90's to promote the State Water bond issue in Santa Barbara, California as he felt it was critical for the town. He was publicly credited for having been one of the top ten reasons the measure passed thanks to his book “Drought in Paradise” and radio work. The collapse of his software business when Apple Computer discontinued the "II" machine line in 1995 crystallized the failure of his second marriage. With no clear direction in the school market supplemental materials field he sought a career in broadcasting in Las Vegas, Nevada doing shows on both KDWN and KXNT. This was unsatisfying due to the "star" economics of commercial radio where a few performers make millions and everyone else starves. Mr. Vance has also been a day trader, strategist, system developer and author on the equities markets and trading. He now trades stock, land and develops residential property. His website and trading information service, "The Stock Surfer" was a leading Internet service for seven years. He has been developing “The Young Americans” series of Young Adult novels promoting conservative values as well as his personal memoir, “A Long Way From Normal.” You can buy Adrian Vance’ books or downloads at December 21, 2010 he was awarded US. Patent 7,855,061 for his “Fuel Farm” that makes a gasoline equivalent 100 Octane fuel, butanol, from CO2, water and sunlight with algae and bacteria.
