    Virginia needs comprehensive campaign finance reform.

    With Vegas billionaires and Wal-Mart donating hundreds of thousands to local and statewide candidates, does anyone think that the citizens’ voices here in Virginia will have any chance of being heard?

    We need to cap contributions to the federal limits for individuals.

    We must end corporate and all other non-individual contributions.

    We must restrict contributions to be only from those citizens, whose primary residence is within the district (or state for statewide races).

    These reforms would restore the representative relationship between the elected officials and the citizens. Such changes will not restrict free speech, but will amplify the voices of those who actually live within the district where the election is to be held.

    Glover sentenced to 26 years
    http://www2.insidenova.com/isn/news/crime/article/glover_sentenced_to_26-years/52175/

    Why this woman did not get the full 51 years is beyond comprehension.

    When the history of these types of cases are revealed both the child protective agencies and courts seem to come up with just as lame excuses as the ones that commit this type of crime.

    Perhaps we should be sending the children to Guantanamo and placing the prisoners into the custody of CPS?

    Del. Bob Marshall: Disabled kids are God’s punishment
    http://www.wtop.com/?sid=1894168&nid=25

    Apparently Bob doesn’t realize that many of us actually choose not to abort our disabled children.

    We believe that our special children are gifts from God and our greatest blessings.

    Leah,
    Thank you for posting that link. I have always considered myself a moderate Republican and my biggest fault with the Republican party has been their desire to place themselves in my house and even in my bedroom. While I have often disagreed with Del Marshall, I always thought he was a smart man. This shows maybe I was wrong. What a stupid completely idiotic comment.

    Looks like Bob is not the only one in need of a press conference to follow up on what was said that day…..

    At the press conference, the Rev. Joe Ellison, vice president of the Council on Biblical Principles, said that when he was in college, he paid for girlfriends to get abortions. He said he still feels guilty about that today.

    Ellison said he was “declaring war against Planned Parenthood.”

    http://www.wtop.com/?sid=1894168&nid=25

    How about instead of a war on Planned Parenthood, consider a small battle against individual stupidity in the name of personal responsibility?

    That seems to be something we have failed to legislate.

    Bob is correct on a fundamental level, but he could have presented the message a little better. A woman I once knew, a friend of my youth, who had aborted her first three pregnancies. There was significant scaring on her womb, and her cervix had been weakened. She later married (while still in her early twenties), and was desperately trying to conceive with her husband. She did, three times. She also miscarried three times. After some deep depression, convinced she was paying for her earlier abortions, she managed to carry a child to term. Fortunately, the child was born healthy. Unfortunately, she was unable to conceive after that. If you were to ask her, she would swear that the miscarriages were a punishment from above. If you don’t buy that, then you cannot deny the science…the doctors told her the previous abortions directly contributed to the miscarriages, and she was lucky to have had a child at all.

    As far as it being a direct punishment, who knows the mind and heart of God? Could be. Might not be. However, the physical and mental impacts of abortion are well documented.

    Bob was not correct on a fundamental level. Here’s what Jesus had to say in John 9:1-3:

    As Jesus passed by, He saw a man blind from birth.

    And His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?”

    Jesus answered, “It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him. “

    So if one were to ASSUME that Bob Marshall is correct (and BELIEVE ME, I don’t like to get in the middle of these kind of arguments which is why I RARELY comment on them) isn’t he saying God is punishing INNOCENT children for SINS committed by adults?

    Again, I hate to comment but I think he will regret that remark.

    ESPECIALLY if he plans on running for Senate.

    Further “Ayn” it is completely disgusting that you, Bob and others would use disabled children and their parents as political punching bags to further the pro-life cause.

    Pro-life means respecting life as God respects it — and you, Bob, and those so-called pastors at the event certainly aren’t respecting the lives of disabled children and their parents by thowing us under the pro-life bus.

    Don’t assign motives to Ayn’s effort to help shed some light on what a statement like this might mean. Some of the Bible isn’t easy to understand and sometimes not easy to accept, and I think she’s trying to make an honest effort here to explain something a lot of folks are clearly having trouble with.

    There are a lot of times in both the New and Old Testament where God’s judgment and laws aren’t all that easy to take in. Jesus talked about the reason he came was to divide us into those who would be saved and those who would not. The Old Testament talks about punishing some sins down to the fourth generation of the sinner’s children. Passages like those aren’t easy to take in, and often difficult to understand in context.

    I’m not going to speculate as to whether Delegate Marshall’s statements are Biblicly correct or not — I’d have to study some of this further to make sure I was being accurate, and in a discussion like this that’s awfully important.

    The other important component here that I think might be leading Delegate Marshall to discuss this is the increased likelihood of a child being born with a birth defect after the mother had previously aborted a child. Regardless of theological efforts to make sense of why that might happen, it would seem that having an abortion correlates significantly with the occurrence of birth defects. We can speculate why without making much headway, but Marshall does highlight an important health concern here. Heck, we seem to give greater emphasis on preventing expecting mothers from smoking without understanding whether abortion is a more significant risk factor. That’s pretty disturbing.

    While we’re on the subject of Ayn Rand, whether Right or Wrong, I HAVE to “throw” this out because it seemed, at the time, a bit strange (to me).

    A while back, Ayn Rand is Right asked for proof or documentation of something I said, then posted THIS:

    I have to admit, I was TOTALLY AMAZED when I saw it (I HOPE it’s not TOO confusing)!!!

    From the “Snow Postpones Frank Wolf Kickoff” thread.

    On Feb 4, I said:

    Kevin C said on 4 Feb 2010 at 9:55 pm: “FACT: All throughout history, it’s been PROVEN that the easiest way to control the “population” is to keep them at each others throats!”

    On Feb 5, Ayn Rand Is Right said:

    Ayn Rand IS Right! said on 5 Feb 2010 at 9:50 am: “Ahem…care to reference this? You act as if there is some master-puppeteer pulling our strings, and claim it to be historical fact.”

    Then on Feb 7, Ayn Rand Is Right makes this ABSOLUTELY AMAZING statement (on the VERY SAME thread, after QUESTIONING what I said):

    Ayn Rand IS Right said on 7 Feb 2010 at 1:54 pm: “Divide and conquer is a marxist tactic and these groups have developed a decidedly marxist flavor since 1972.”

    Talk about DUH with a CAPITAL D-U-H!!!!!

    I GUESS it might have been EASIER to understand, for the less “thoughtful,” had I said, “Keeping them DIVIDED?????”

    Do you THINK Ayn Rand Is Right considers Marx a “master-puppeteer????”

    *** *** *** ***

    Ayn, for the record, what Marx did was OBSERVE what was going on, “ALL THROUGHOUT HISTORY!!!”

    That sentence shows how bad our justice system is. Human life (especially that of the young girl that was left to die in the cold) is only worth a few years in prison where the murderess will get 3 square meals a day, cable television and a warm cell.
    The fact remains, the gitl is dead and her murderer is still breathing.

    I am not defending or condemning Bob Marshall. I said he was “fundamentally correct”, but that doesn’t mean his assertion is correct. Actually, I found his assertion rather gratuitous. To explain so even “Kevin C.” can follow the logic:

    A previous abortion may contribute to a birth defect, and some evidence would point to a correlation between the two. Some women have abortions and go on to give birth to perfectly healthy children. Some who have never had an abortion give birth to disabled children. In the statistically fewer cases where a direct abortion-disability linkage can be made, the argument can also be made. However, it is gratuitous to:

    #1 Assert that it is “Punishment from God”, because a future first-born was aborted, the subsuquent birth of a disabled child is directly attributed to the previous abortion. This is gratuitous on its face.

    #2 To profess to know the mind and heart of God. As Greg points out in his post, there are several places in scripture (Ezekiel is full of such references) where God communicates a multi-generational punishment for sins. Some who read this, accept this as a truth. To wit: Alcoholism is a sin. Alcoholism tends to run in families. There is both a “physical” component, and a “environmental” component. If a person refuses to succumb to alcoholism and educates their children about the dangers, they are less likely to succumb as well. Same for family dysfunction, screwed up parents raise screwed up kids, who can become screwed up parents…. But there are many scriptural references where God does not visit his wrath upon the children of the sinner.

    #3 That God punishes any sin more or less than another. All sin is equal in the eyes of the Lord. We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. The consequences of our own sinful actions are the punishment we receive in this world. Scripture teaches this. The porn-addict whose marriage falls apart. The thief who goes to prison. The greedy man who loses everything in his pursuit of money. The glutton who dies early due to a heart attack or diabetes. The person who contracts HIV from sex outside of marriage…all examples of the consequences of sin, and yes, in many cases these consequences are felt by the family of the sinner, but they are not “punishments sent by God”. The pain we experience is to set us on a path to repentence, and ultimate salvation. Those who do not face the real punishment, face God’s true and ultimate punishment…eternal damnation.

    To Leah, I do not agree with Bob’s assertion, for the reasons outlined above. I believe that ANY child, disabled or not, is a treasure, and their worth as human beings should be measured by the character of their hearts, not by their ability to walk, see, hear, speak, etc. I am opposed to abortion on moral grounds, but I am in no position to condemn those who seek them.

    And to Kevin C., When I asked you to cite a specific example, it was because your assertion was gratuitous, as it applied to the discussion, whereas my example had specificity. Yours was “History is FULL of examples”…. Gratuitous, because of the context to which it was applied (Frank Wolf), and “history” is so broad that anyone could point to a handful of examples as equally gratuitous to directly refute your assertion, whereas mine pointed directly to a specific group, during a specific timeframe, with a specific motivation, ie. not gratuitous. If this is too much debate logic for you to wrap your brain around, try this one: Your wife says “you never pick up your socks and put them in the hamper”. If you have ever, at any time, put your socks away, and can state “I did too, in December….you thanked me for doing it” then you have refuted the gratuitous statement. Perhaps you may want to think on this instead of stewing about some blog exchange that occurred weeks ago, and waiting for a chance to say “gotcha”…and if you must, then please don’t bring a knife to a gunfight.

    First of all, it is not uncommon for the local media to have an anti-Christian bias. Therefore, if they are reporting on someone who is known to be a Christian, it is not surprising that only snippets taken out of context get reported. I’ve seen that before.

    I know for a fact that abortions can cause infertility… not in every case but in quite a number of them. I have friends who had abortions and I’ve listened to testimonies from women who had aboritons. Not only is a baby’s life terminated but there is physical trauma to the mother…also emotional. I know some of you would disagree but there is also emotional trauma to the father especially later.

    As far as God, punishment and the Bible goes…..we live in a sin corrupted world. I’ll repeat that: WE LIVE IN A SIN CORRUPTED WORLD. Just the fact that one day you will die is proof of that. When Adam and Eve decided to have life without God they brought sin into the world. Just as there are consequences when God’s physical laws of nature are broken (ex. gravity) there are consequences when God’s moral laws are broken. We reap the consequences when we sin, when someone sins against us and just by living in a sin corrupted world. It’s like pollution.

    I believe Greg was quoting from Deuteronomy 5:9 (in reference to Moses repeating the 10 commandments to the children of Israel; specifically about worshipping idols, i.e. worshipping something other than the true God): “‘You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, and on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me,”

    The key words are “those who hate Me.” Everyone is repsonsible to God for their own sin. How often I’ve seen children pick up and do the same sins as their parents. That’s what happens when God is not in their life. So God is only “visiting the iniquity” (consequences) on those who hate Him who have picked up and repeated the rebellious sins of their parents.

    In one sense Leah was right when quoting John 9:3. Let’s go a little further with John 9:1-5: As He (Jesus) passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him. We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the LIght of the world.” Jesus healed many to show that He was sent by God and that He is the Son of God, God in the flesh. The blind man was blind because as I said before it is due to living in a sin polluted world. Jesus came to save us from our sins and to forgive us. He demonstrated that by healing people.

    Also, none of us are righteous. Adam and Eve died spirtually when they chose life (really death) apart from God. Spiritually dead people can not have spiriturally alive children; so we inherited a rebellious sin nature. None of us is righteous in God’s eyes. But God in His mercy and grace sent His Son Jesus to take our sins upon Himself and die on a cross to pay for them because He loves us very much (John 3:16)! The God/man Jesus Christ took all of our sins and paid for them Himself so that we can have eternal life and so we can be with Him forever… where there will be no more tears, no more suffering, no more disease and no more death (Revelation21:3-5). That is Good News!!!

    Why do we have to worship ANYBODY? Live your life so that you can look yourself in the mirror without cringing (except for all the wrinkles, of course).

    Help your neighbor shovel snow, cut their lawn if needed, bathe often enough so as not to have BO, use your turn signal at any and all turns, left or right, don’t breath on people after eating garlicky food and especially not after smoking.

    And, Anonymous, I’ll let you rejoice in your sufferings. If they’ve made you a better person, rejoice even more. But, please, do not inflict suffering on other people in order give them perseverance and character. Please!

    Tillie, I know that Patty in fact organized a large neighborhood watch to shovel snow in the neighborhood. She’s also worked to get grass cut in the community. You might be better off telling folks who don’t regularly contribute to the quality of the neighborhood to do something else. Throwing those rocks at Patty is pretty off base. Seriously.

    I know the relative anonymity of blog identities can make it difficult to understand who we’re actually talking to here, but making assumptions like this can come back to haunt you. It’s better in some cases to just assume we’re talking to the biggest community assets around, because often we are.

    As far as why you should worship God, I just pray the Holy Spirit works in you as it has in me and helps lead you to a life with more meaning, a higher purpose, and solid answers about life you’re not going to find elsewhere. If you’ve got such fundamental questions rattling around unanswered, I feel for you. I’ve been there, and it gnawed on me continuously.

You seem to be a bit insecure, and defensively lash out at those who you perceive as challenging your intellect. In support of this assertion, I point to your first post. I will spare the rest of the readership, and save a little disk space for Greg, as I refrain from the cut-and-paste you appear to be fond of. Your post would indicate that you have been on a slow burn for some time regarding our previous exchange you have quoted. Your multiple rants on this thread would indicate you do place emotion over logic, and react viscerally to every perceived slight. If you were a dog, you would be termed a “fear-biter”. However, the dog is of marginal intelligence, an instinctual creature, not self-aware. The dog can be excused for his behavior. He is, afterall, a dog.

    “You are NOT Ayn Rand,” say that to yourself when you look in the MIRROR !!!

    Maybe THAT’LL help ????

    “Ayn Rand is Right” has been reduced to the MINDLESS BABBLING of an IMBECILE !!!!

    MAYBE what you hear (way, WAY off in the distance) is REALITY trying to get back in touch with you ??

    Next stop for you, the RUBBER ROOM !!!

    BTW, Ms. Rand (there, do you like that better? Does that STROKE your EGO?), are you trying to say that every time someone rings the doorbell, you SALIVATE ????

    Ah Kevin…as you rant, you prove me right. Fear-biter…yes indeed. As I throw the ball, your reaction is predictable. You run with anticipation, looking for it to land, so you can grab it, and carry it back to be thrown again. You don’t know why you do it, you just know, deep in your gut, that you must. And as you do so, you don’t realize that you have been completely discredited. No one will take your seriously on this forum, where you so desperately seek affirmation. Sad. But I’ll indulge you and throw the ball again, and you, according to your nature, will react. You will run to fetch it. You cannot resist. You must answer me now, or stew about it and answer me later. But answer me you will. You can’t help it.

    Kevin C, you should point out to Ayn Rand IS Right just how much of a hypocrite Ayn Rand was in real life. Her personal actions ended up costing her all her credibility. She’s seen a little resurgence of late among a crowd just now discovering her books without knowing anything in depth about her real life biography. Might be a lesson in it.

    OK folks, I think the blasting back and forth has gone on long enough. I’m moderating all of the personal rock throwing in this thread from here on out. If you got something for the broader audience, please feel free to post it. If you’re focusing on getting your digs in on one particular person, I’ll ask you to refrain.

    Does anyone know how a person can get involved in the PW Committee of 100? I have filled out their application and submitted it 3 times over the past year and haven’t received the first response-not even something telling me to beat it and stop bothering them.

    This is for any of you who currently have children enrolled in the PWCS Specialty Schools program. Dr. Walts budget is calling for transportation to be cut for those students who live outside of that particular home school. This is a great disappointment because these Specialty Schools rely so much on those students coming from other areas in the County, and this will more than likely spell the eventual end of the specialty programs. This is at the same time the Superintendent and School Board WILL be providing transportation to the Governor’s School, a multimillionaire dollar program they started knowing very well that PWCS would be facing an unprecedented budget deficit. It is also of note that PWCS will continue to provide transportation to Fairfax County’s Thomas Jefferson School.

    For many of you, the response may be, “Who cares” or “They didn’t have specialty schools when I was in school, why should they now?” In response, this is the one thing that sets PWCS apart from any other N. Virginia school, or most schools in the country for that matter. At this point the County is not even considering providing a “pay for transportation” plan, which would at least be a viable alternative.

    These programs have brought excitement to many students who totally lack enthusiasm with regards to their education. In addition, this is at least in part, a program of real School Choice. If you know of anyone with kids in the Specialty programs, please let then know about these cuts. For those interested in taking action, see below:

    The Prince William County School Board will hold a public hearing on the Superintendent’s Proposed Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 Budget and Capital Improvements Program at 6 p.m. on Monday, March 1 in the auditorium of Stonewall Jackson High School. Stonewall Jackson High School is located at 8820 Rixlew Lane, Manassas.

    Citizens may sign up to speak at the public hearing through the School Board Clerk’s Office until noon on March 1 by calling 703.791.8709 or by emailing dentaj@pwcs.edu. Citizens may also sign up on March 1 at the entrance to the Stonewall Jackson High School auditorium door from 5 p.m. until 5:55 p.m. Citizens must sign up by these deadlines in order to speak. Each speaker will have up to two minutes to make comments.

    The budget public hearing previously scheduled for February 8 was canceled because of a snowstorm.

    A budget work session will be held following the Board’s public meeting at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 3. A special work session for final markup on the budget is scheduled for Wednesday, March 17 following the School Board’s regular meeting which will begin at 7 p.m.

    The School Board has rescheduled its vote on the Superintendent’s Proposed FY 2011 Budget and Capital Improvements Program from March 17 to a special meeting on March 24. That meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the School Board meeting room in the Edward L. Kelly Leadership Center, 14715 Bristow Road, Manassas, and will be broadcast live on PWCS-TV, Comcast Channel 18 and Verizon Channel 36.
