Dear Delegate Plum:
How dare you speak of Fear. You have no idea what fear is in Virginia. I am a small family farmer and my family and children LIVE IN FEAR every second of every day because of government over regulation and bully local county boots on our necks. It is more like TERROR because at any second the local county can fine and arrest us and I could lose our family farm. This is REAL FEAR. The fear of not being able to feed your family or pay the bills or keep the family farm. We are afraid constantly because we MUST be able to supplement what we produce to stay alive. This is the reality of the small family farmer in Virginia - constant fear and terror because of local county government abuse.
You make fun of the hundreds of busloads of people that came from all over Virginia as "comedy". Really? The poor family farmers that drove over 5 hours with hungry tired children to have a voice are a joke to you? Disgraceful. YOU are the real joke Delegate Plum. Did the PEC that owns your soul write this immoral commentary for you? It is no secret that you are in bed with the PEC and sneak around family farms unanounced to steal farmland and drive the family farmer off the land.
2013 is supposed to be the Year of the American Farmer, but NOT in Virginia. If you want to know real fear and terror in Virginia, spend a day with my family on the farm and know what it is like in the dead of winter to keep up with bills and keep food in my children's mouths. In fact, the farmer you speak of had a "Farm Store Business" License issued by that county. What happened to that farmer should never ever happen in Virginia.
You bafoons are haggling in Richmond over us farmers selling a postcardor giving a farm tour, while we have to decide if we can feed our children or the livestock every day. You are a disgrace and an embarrassment to the nation.
We the people do NOT WANT YOU ON OUR FARMS and do not want you in office. You have too many conflicts of interests including the PEC in your veins and should get a new job.
Glad you think the suffering of the Virginia small family farmers is "comedy". We can all tell our children when we see you that you are the man that killed off the Virgnia small family farmers.
Signed, A Virginia Farmer Living in FEAR Every Day because of Government Over Regulation
In response to:
Fear can be a powerful influence in our lives. A healthy fear of something that is harmful may keep us safe. Fear of the unknown can cause helpful caution or limit our perspective. Too often fear can be misused to manipulate the actions of others. In Richmond, as elsewhere, fear is evident and at work in many aspects of the legislative process.
