Re: “Know Your GMOs: Vermont’s Labeling Law Takes Effect

That doesn't change the fact that you are whining, as usual.

Re: “Know Your GMOs: Vermont’s Labeling Law Takes Effect

Apparently you don't know that dairy, cheese, and processing aids, such as rennet, are exempt from Vermont's GMO labeling law. Just another one of the many, many things that you do not know.

Re: “The Vermont Mayors Coalition Calls for Universal Background Checks

Do these guys do anything? The streets in their cities are a disgrace. Can't fix streets so let's find a nice diversion. Let's call for more gun control!

Hope the ACLU steps in, harassing people like this is not the Vermont way. Not to mention a big waste of taxpayer money

Re: “Know Your GMOs: Vermont’s Labeling Law Takes Effect

I'd like to offer you some wine to go with your GMO cheese. The added bonus is you have to eat it in another state.

Oh, I think Dave "Free Marijuana For Everyone" Zuckerman already has plenty of chemistry in his body.

Re: “Sanders to Put ‘Hold’ on Federal GMO Deal

In re: Mr. Lurie's comment - There is a huge difference between selective breeding and inserting genetic material into food products that comes from entirely different species. For example, inserting fish genes into tomatoes in order to increase their frost resistance. I can assure you this was not occurring in the Bronze Age.

Ya know if we genetically modified Broccoli Boy he might make a halfway decent Lite Gov.
Better living through chemistry.

Re: “Know Your GMOs: Vermont’s Labeling Law Takes Effect

Meanwhile, Price Chopper says that it will lose 3,000 food products today because the manufacturers of those products won't ship them into Vermont.

Thanks for this well thought out plan, Vermont Legislature.

Re: “Financial Firm to Pay Vermont $5.95 Million in Jay Peak Case

Outrageous for many reasons the whole case is based on FRAUD & actual stealing of investors funds . This case calls for jail time as well as fines the fact that the state settled for any less is amazing.

Re: “Chittenden County Coalition Wants to Build 3,500 Homes Over Five Years

Any of these houses which are not built as net positive energy, or at least net zero, will be a future liability to Vermont. I don't see a word in this article reflecting that it is even a consideration... Maybe this was left out of the story, but I suspect not. No project is better than a bad one.

"A water taxi would shuttle people to North Beach, Oakledge Park and other lakeside locations in between."

I can see it now..........Uber takes on the "water taxi" biz, in BTV.

So - accused of misappropriating 200 million dollars, they're going to repay less than 6 million?? What a deal.

Re: “Sanders to Put ‘Hold’ on Federal GMO Deal

So, are we going to label literally every food? Because we have been modifying plants through selective breeding since the Bronze Age. My favorite example is bananas. They aren't natural either. We engineered them.

Re: “Financial Firm to Pay Vermont $5.95 Million in Jay Peak Case

The fine should go to the local contractors who fulfilled their contracts in good faith but have been shafted by Stenger and Quiros. The EB-5 investors took their chances with a risky investment and should be paid back last

Varmint - really? most of those who committed mass murders are Dems? I would be very interested in seeing the proof of that statement.
Thank you.

Re: “Redstone to Buy Winooski Block; Strand Venue Gets Green Light

Another boondoggle waiting to happen. When will the city council members start thinking about the residents of these cities and towns? They want to build build build, yet are clueless to the amount of traffic this adds. The residents are going to have to place no parking signs near their houses, as where do you think these people are going to park? They are going to start parking in neighborhoods. Always seems to be the same developers. No regards to the residents of these towns. Who cares if he is from Winooski, sounds like he is only about making more money with no regard to his neighbors.

Re: “Sanders to Put ‘Hold’ on Federal GMO Deal

Stabenow and Roberts both, should be literally KICKED out of office! This isn't just corruption. This is collusion to defraud the American people, and just for their own enrichment. Rob Bright (above) got it right! Get rid of them both and any more like them! NOW!

Re: “Burlington Harbor Marina Gets Council Approval

Who exactly benefits from this marina, 160 boaters and the guy who owns it? I'm beginning to think Weinberger gave knowyourassumptions a livable wage break or overlooked some other permit for him.
