    As the daylight hours grow shorter, it is more important to be aware of your surroundings, especially when withdrawing money from an ATM.

    The Mount Vernon Government Center and South County Government Centerhave Fairfax County Federal Credit Union ATMs inside their buildings, providing a safe, well lit place to make cash withdrawals.

    South County Government Center
    8350 Richmond Highway
    Alexandria, VA
    ATM is located in the main lobby next to the security desk

    Mount Vernon Government Center
    2511 Parkers Lane
    Alexandria, VA
    ATM is located in lobby in front of the police information desk

    Yours in public service,

    So I had to respond, with:

    This truly scares me.

    Can I presume you are thus willing to work against the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors' Legislative Agenda item that would further restrict carry of firearms?

    Or is there some new safety procedures that say I should bank only with Fairfax County Credit Union?

    Or are they willing to rebate their fees since I go there on the advice of my Supervisor because the rest of my locations aren't safe?

    Please clarify.

    Glad you're on our side, Tess. (smile)
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I just hope you are not holding your breath waiting for a reply from a Fairfax politician about gun policy as he will have to get a group of lawyers (at Taxpayer expense) to find his answer for him.

    There is an ATM at my bank across Rt. 1 from McDonalds not far from where I live and although it is well lit, it is close to a hang-out for various shady characters. Across the street in earshot of the atm is an independent convenience store where, years ago, the owner was stabbed to death one night.

    Not long after that, His Brilliance Jim Moran sent out a flyer telling us how Congress needed to get "tougher on guns" and how good ole' Jim was the man to do it.

    I sent him a letter asking him to come to my bank and stand by that ATM at night and hang out in the breezeway of the shopping plaza where his less-literate teenage constituents hang out, and tell me I have no right to bear arms.

    I can't remember if I got a reply, if so it was the usual form letter BS.

    And people wonder why Northern VA is the heart of defense-rights activism.

    I understand a Crimson Trace laser-grip is wonderful for bringing the light of understanding to those with darkness in their heart. Only when the proper conditions come together to justify it, of course. Don't want to waste enlightenment onmere shadows of evil past.
