    The rain is the tears of Virginians, because they know the state has been destroyed by the plague of carpet baggers fleeing the host’s they have already destroyed! These same people flee places like MD, NY, MA, and NJ to get away from the horrendous taxes at all levels, then continue to vote for the same kind of people that destroyed those states!
