Thank you, Del. Pogge, for introducing a common sense bill. There are times when I despair of ever seeing common sense prevail in this matter. Thank you for restoring a sense of hope. If I were in your district and if I could vote, you'd have mine. Thanks again, Ric

I hear the virginia state police are against this,I don't understand why. I can only figure it has to do with money.

Well, it would create a lot of work for someone there, to notify us of changes in the laws. I would like to think that it would be mandatory from the get-go to do so. As I am fond of reminding folks, the Good Parent acknowledges the equal attendant responsibility that goes along with their power and authority. The Bad Parent only acknowledges the power and authority.

So, if someone creates a law that could put the people directly under their power and authority in jeopardy, then the responsible thing to do would be to properly notify them, so they are not harmed inadvertently ...I had to go to prison to learn this and understand the concept intimately. Not doing so cost me my freedom. I don't want to see others stepping into my old shoes. There are five forms of abuse, not just sexual. There is also Intellectual, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual abuse. Withholding information from me to protect myself is abusive in those last four forms. Clearly, the Bad Parent in action.
