Virginia Lawmaker Wants To Protect Residents From The Coming Of The Anti-Christ

    Having covered the Virginia state legislature in times past, it's always been an interesting body that our national Congress seems to take cues from. In that, I mean a body encompassed by generally unedcuated twits that is so gridlocked it's a wonder anything of substance gets done. Rarely does that happen though.

    Enter one enterprising lawmaker who wants to protect you from what could, possibly, end up being the mark of the beast should you decide you don't want it. He's not a theologian, mind you (his words, not mine), but apparently he's heard about the stories in the Book of Revelation and, well, it's time to legislate!!!!!!

    This sentence in the story stuck out for me:

    "I just think you should have the right to control your own body," Cole said.

    Yet, Cole is a pro-lifer who has sponsored legislation against abortion:

    That was a great punch with that quote at the end.

    "At least when Nero fiddled, they got good music."

    Idiot. Next thing you know one of Pat Robertson's buddies will be occupying the governor's mansion and a guy obsessed with homosexuals will be attorney general.
     
  5. Those are not incompatible opinions.

    I'm just thankful Obama did not take away my robot insurance.

    So is Cole defending his child abducting constituents? What about his lost and disoriented elderly voting base?

    I'm with him on the microchip thing. No way I'm in favor of that, albeit for far different reasons than wingut legislator is.

    The antichrist stuff? Well, I'm tired of this notion that I should have respect for religion when respect for religion means I have to be respectful of stupidity.

    Good cause.

    Specious reasoning.

    Simply, all necessary roadblocks need to be thrown up against Corporates Uber Alles. F that bullshit.

    Then stop using your cell phone and use cash for everything. Stop using those discounts cards that Kroger or CVS gives you.

    If something can be placed in me that tells people I have a metal plate in my leg or that I have some allergy or what meds I am currently taking if I have a terrible car crash 500 miles from home, then cut me open.

    That's your choice. It should stay that way.

    Exactly. It's the involuntary implants that are questionable.

    And I want them to stay truly optional, not optional in the sense that "You don't have to, but nobody will hire you, you can deal with the government in any way, and you can't get health care" sort of way.
