This Great (?) Commonwealth
This is turning into a banner year here in this glorious Commonwealth in which I live. First, the state's budget is in dire straits - there's no disputing that. But our legislators, in their infinite wisdom, have decided to balance that budget by cutting health care for the poor and disabled and reducing education funding.
It probably comes as no surprise that most of the legislators are good old boys whose children are grown and healthy.
Today, however, I discovered the icing on the cake.
State Delegate Bob Marshall of Manassas says disabled children are God’s punishment to women who have aborted their first pregnancy.
Now I understand. God has spoken and His apostles are just following His commands. Or so they think.
Jerks - big stupid jerks.
In this morning's Richmond Times Dispatch newspaper, Delegate Marshall claims we misunderstood him. Too little, too late, Bob...
