• • Virginia Republicans returning us to the bad old days
David W. Driver, News Leader (Staunton, VA) Atheism |Atlas Shrugged | The latest school shooting in Chardon, Ohio, should encourage Gov. (Bob) McDonnell, Del. (Richard) Bell and Sen. (Emmett) Hanger and the rest of the Republican ghouls to hand out firearms on sidewalks in front of schools. After all, they have weakened gun laws just bout as much as they can. [....] This attitude toward dangerous weapons is just part of the overall philosophy as espoused by Speaker (of the House John) Boehner, whose Bible is the atheist Ayn Rand’s magnum opus, “Atlas Shrugged.” You can sum up the current crop of Republican leaders simply as cynicism, sarcasm, objectivism and orgasm. Their view is simply to abolish government and let the strong subjugate the weak.
