    I thought things like this were checked when people filed for welfare and other tax payer funded benefits.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    This isn't 16th century Europe.

    What they did was wrong, and I have no problem fining them and forcing them to pay pack what they gained from welfare.

    "Spare the rod and spoil the child". Maybe we should return to the ideas of the 16th century every now and then, especially with vermin like they are...sucker fish.

    Plus a healthy financial penalty and possibly some time behind bars for fraud. (Do they lock people up for that?)
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Maybe we should shake a finger at them and say "bad boy, bad girl, no desert for you".

    I would have no problem with placing people back in stockades in town square.

    What does that even mean as a response to what I posted?
