Quote of the Day

[Trigger warning for disablism; eliminationism.]

"I wish we had a Siberia so we could ship them all off to freeze to death and die and clean up the population."—New Hampshire State Senator Martin Harty, who is of course a member of the Republican Party, on how government could best serve, in his words, "the mentally ill, the retarded, people with physical disabilities and drug addictions—the defective people society would be better off without."

Honestly, Shakers. I just don't even know what to say anymore.
