Watch out Virginians. Fat Cats always find a way to make themselves receipients of enormous sums of money. Why else would they be promoting this give-away. The ports have made the state money for many years, and should remain that way.
Our politicians know they will reap hugh personal rewaards from the sale of Virginians property. It needs to be stopped NOW.
