|Lord, aren't they lovely in their fury?|
Let me mention that two Democrats, Sens. Charles J. Colgan (D-Prince William) and Phillip P. Puckett (D-Russell), joined the nut fringe, avoiding a 20-20 tie and keeping the Lt. Governor from having to break that tie with an all-Repub vote. They need to lose their seats.
The Richmond Times Dispatch points out this morning that "Virginia ranks 49th in the nation in the ability to adopt the foster children in its care, of which there are more than 5,300." We're already next to last and these anti-abortion types take away yet another option to caring for those children, claiming religious freedom.
The real religious issue here is whether the government should be supporting religious organizations, a situation that was brought to full fruition during the Bush II administration and one that has resulted in nothing good.
Look like today lines up as a big one for the anti-woman, pro-gun agenda of our fearless leaders in Richmond. The Rape by the State bill looks like a sure thing as do any number of gun bills that promote the 17th century values of these lovely people.
