National Insanity Hits Mathews CountyThe

Posted by Marsha Maines on Thursday, July 30, 2015

 The war against history that has been raging for weeks now has moved to Mathews County.  The supposed threat that history posses on some people who are ignorant has no end in sight.

The 4 clips above come from a popular Walt Disney cartoon featuring Donald Duck.  They promote racism and nazism.  Yet there is no public outcry against Walt Disney for having created a bunch of these types of cartoons.  What is interesting to note is the Nazi swastika is a slight variation from a very ancient religious symbol.  Everyone cries that we should not forget our world history so that we do not ever repeat it.  So one has to ask, if everyone is removing Civil War American History, we will be doomed to repeat that which some say is racism.  So are we really being told that these folks want a return to slavery?  People being bought and sold on blocks like cattle?  The Confederate flag was a sign of Confederate state rights.  Nothing about slavery.  Slavery did not come into play in the Civil War until Abraham Lincoln threw it in at a much later date well after the war started and the Confederate flag was created.

General Robert E Lee, Recollections and Letters from Chuck Thompson

Take a look at Robert E Lee's account of the Civil War and one has to ask if it was about slavery.  Slavery was an issue since it started in Colonial America and was despised by many.  The first slave owner in the Colonial America was a black freeman who had to take his claim to court in order to be allowed to own a slave.  The problem today is ignorance.  Its a lack of many of a true history education and that is by design.  Stop believing what you see on TV.  Its only entertainment and not designed to be accurate.  Liberal liberties are taken everywhere to keep you dumbed down.  The Confederate Flag is still a symbol to so many of American Freedom and rights.  Not about racism as only a very few claim.  Once again it seems we are going to let the few control the majority and allow the violation of our own rights and thoughts just dwindle to dust.

Gloucester, VA What The Daily Press Didn't Tell You, July, 2014

The Daily Press newspaper had an article shown above in the Sunday, July 6th, 2014 edition.  In that article a mother daughter family was brought up along with animals they once owned.  The Daily Press only gave you a part of that story and we contacted them with more information and yet they decided it was not in your best interest to ever hear the rest of the story.  The Mother Daughter team are the LaFrance's.  We covered the story from the very beginning here on this site, however we did not use their name during that time.  That nightmare began over a year and a half ago just days before Thanksgiving.  Gloucester Animal Control charged the family with Failure To Perform Duties of Ownership on 26 different charges.  Problem with that is that the title of the law was in violation with state code and hence not at all valid.  But that did not stop the county attorney from continuing to prosecute them under this disgraceful ordinance.

  The charges were dropped way down later in court, but in the mean time it forced very harsh and undue consequences on the LeFrance's and there is some serious questions as to harassment from Animal Control officers in regards to the LeFrance family.  We have a statement that was offered to the Daily Press and they did not want to even hear it and never covered the invalid charges from Animal Control that we showed them.  The statement is as follows:

"Mathews County knew about the exotic animals in question with the above article as we applied for and were given a Mathews County business license.  To get this license we had to disclose that we were running an exotic animal education business and what animals were involved.  The business had both a USDA and Virginia Fish and Wildlife permits which meant regular inspections for quality care and animal health.  The business had a great reputation and performed programs in schools, nursing homes, churches and private programs in five counties.  We used small and gentle exotics of all species including gentle reptiles and everything was well received everywhere we went."

  Animal Control of Gloucester came in and inspected the  LeFrance's animals while the LeFrance's were in the process of moving out of one place and preparing to move to another.  Literally packing up a truck when Animal Control came onto the property.  Also, the circumstances behind the horses being taken while the LeFrance's were in Mathews County are also very highly suspect as to what happened there.

If the local papers are not willing to tell you the entire story, then we will.  And we are going to start doing so on a regular basis.

Book Review, Across The Color Line, by Lizzette G Carter

Photo's by; Chuck Thompson

From time to time we include book reviews about local authors or books that cover the local area. Lizzette G Carter's new book, "Across The Color Line", is the latest book in her career as a writer. Lizzette Lives in Mathews County and is a superb writer and a wonderful person. We met her at the Daffodil Festival this past weekend and she did a marvelous job explaining the book to anyone interested.

Okay so what is the book about? Well here is the story line off the back cover of her new book;

It's a happy New Year and great start for Lacie and Tony's interracial relationship. But turmoil ensues once Lacie meets Tony's parents - namely his mother, Abigail. Circumstances get even more complicated for the couple as they work on a lucrative business deal with a new associate, Trevor Weeks, who is quite vocal about their relationship. Surprisingly,
Joe, Tony's best friend and Lacie's ex- fiance, returns to team up with them on the business deal. However, the friendly reunion sours once the identity of Joe's secret lover is exposed.

In the prequel, the question whether Lacie would have enough courage to cross the color line was answered. Now the follow-up social novel with compelling twists and emotionally charged dialogue, gives a raw and honest look inside the struggles of an interracial relationship and poses another question: Will Lacie and Tony be strong enough to survive being Across The Color Line?
