Justice had been considering signing a bill that would close the agency.

In a press release, Justice - who was previously a Democrat and became a member of the Republican Party last year - said that Gayle Manchin had released a press release on the issue despite being instructed not to.

9. He ran (and won) as a Democrat.

What about that fact do people not get? He was a Republican, changed his affiliation to Democrat before the gubernatorial election, and then changed back to Republican last year.

I'm sorry to be blunt about this fact, but it is a fact.

7. Pitiful .

But they have the right as a state to become ignorant and stupid if they so choose? It's a beautiful state to drive through. The views are amazing. I just never want to stop.

8. I lived there for two years ...

 

There's really no place like WV. They should put a high fence around it and let them eat their damned coal to survive. They are seriously beyond help.

11. It is such a shame. It's an absolutely beautiful state to drive through. I haven't been there in a

long time, but I imagine it's still much the same.

12. The DNC needs to get rid of members who don't meet the standards of the Democratic party.

The WV governor and that jackass sheriff from Wisconsin to name a few.

14. I'm not even sure Manchin's seat

is worth giving a fuck about this shithole state.

I'm sorry, but when Dems regain control, I want retribution against fucking red-states like West by-fucking-God Virginia.

I'm sick of my hard earned money supporting these fucking moochers, who give us nothing but fucking hayseeds in Congress.

The sooner this country splits into "Blue America" and "Dumbfuckistan 'Murikkka" the better. The only type of secession I'd fully support.
