A good idea from Don Surber...

In a column at the Charleston Daily Mail, Don Surber comes up with a great idea. He seems to be upset about some of the idiocy that goes on in government. Can't say I blame him.

Well, it's great in theory, but practically, we need them to do a little more than just pass a budget. For instance, here in northern Virginia, we have some serious transportation problems, and a new transportation plan was needed, and is being dealt with. However, the Republicans had to fight off a proposed half-cent sales tax increase for Northern Virginia. A tax increase in an absurdity when the state is running a budget surplus.

It would also be nice to get some changes in the laws as well. How about making raping a child a crime that will get you the death penalty? Maybe get rid of a few laws as well?

This line was priceless:

There also is a Senate bill that proposes penalties for failure to report to the state's Alzheimer's disease registry. What if you simply forget?
