Re: “Clinton Campaign Manager Meets With Vermont Delegates

I will never vote for Hillary or Trump. I have said it often enough that people are finally getting the message. I am proud that our delegates are staying strong. Anyone who claims that Hillary got all those extra votes hasn't been paying attention to the vast amount of voter fraud that has gone on in this primary season. If for nothing else, ask yourselves why the mainstream media canceled their request for exit polls on 6/7. Studies of exit polls and actual results show that in many of the states that Clinton won, there was fraud that the US would have found actionable in a foreign country but not here, apparently. There was no fraud found in the states that Bernie won by large margins. Anyone who says to the contrary hasn't looked at the history of exit polls and the fraud that variance between exit polls and final results establishes.

Re: “Proposed National GMO Labeling Standards Would Nix Vermont Law

Shumlin was adamantly opposed to Vermont's GMO labeling law. Until he was for it.

Re: “Sanders Says He'll Vote for Clinton in November — but Won't Concede

Where the real travesty lies, is that Seven Days and almost all other media outlets has continued to pander to the two party catastrophe that is ruining this country and hasn't said word one about Gary Johnson running with the Libertarian Party or Jill Stein with the Green Party. Nice of Paul and Seven Days to be so completely biased and limit our choices for us before we even get to the election booths. Who are you people working for anyway?

Nice to see the man wanting our top law enforcement position in the state "TJ Donovan" mince words afraid to lose votes as usual.

Re: “Clinton Campaign Manager Meets With Vermont Delegates

"Presumptions"....

These Bernie fanatics believing that Bernie is somehow going to still be the nominee despite the fact that he lost the popular vote, lost the delegate count, lost more states, and has no mathematical chance of winning the nomination really says something.

Because Hillary won the most votes, the most delegates, the most states, and has a majority of the delegates indicates that she will be the Democratic nominee. Claudia needs to ease off on the Kool-Aid and check back with reality.

So if private sales are the problem, where are the statistics of mass shootings involving private sale firearms? So far all the firearms were purshased leagally or stolen from someone who purshased legally.

Re: “Newport Reels Over Jay Peak Fraud Charges

"$200 million worth of foreign investment" is not taxpayer money.. it is money from outside the United States. It sucks, because it damages our local reputation to other outsiders who might otherwise invest.

Re: “Clinton Campaign Manager Meets With Vermont Delegates

I am voting for Bernie if he is the Democratic candidate or if he runs as an independent. If he does not run I will not vote for Clinton or Trump. I will vote for Gary Johnson. We need to break the hold that the two party system has on our political process.

Re: “Clinton Campaign Manager Meets With Vermont Delegates

I attended the meeting. It was agreed at the request of one of our fellow Sanders delegates that the conversation was off the record, so I do not feel free to reveal what was said. But I don't think that prevents me from revealing what was not said: no one was asked not to vote for Bernie Sanders at the Convention.

Re: “Clinton Campaign Manager Meets With Vermont Delegates

I like the ratf*cking element of trying to get Sander's home state delegates to stab him in the back while he campaigns for downballot candidates in NY.
Even mild mannered grannies are going to end up Bernie or Bust at this rate.
The convention is in 4 weeks & they can't wait? Clinton must be sweating about those server problems. I wonder what she did?

Re: “Sanders Says He'll Vote for Clinton in November — but Won't Concede

Gee, is there anyone like me who feels more than just a little let down that Bernie is a traitor to his own campaign? How can we believe his claims now that he was in this election to win?

Every election, we're told, is *crucial.* It is and it isn't. Reagan was a horrible president, turning the US into the largest debtor nation in the world during his term. The Bushes were horrible presidents, respectively starting and pursuing a series of Mideast wars that continue today, and abrogating democracy and the rule of law in our own country. Trump would also be a horrible president, but the country has had just as bad or perhaps worse and survived.

I urge all the Bernie supporters to disregard Bernie's cave-in to Clintonism and the Democratic Party, and do as I will, vote for Bernie on election day. Perhaps one day we'll get a truly independent candidate, one willing to disrupt business as usual in the presidential elections in order to reform our electoral system and break its two-party duopoly.

Re: “Clinton Campaign Manager Meets With Vermont Delegates

There is nothing that will convince me to vote for HRC. I refuse to vote from a place of fear. That will only perpetuate the slow steady decline that our nation has been experiencing. I encourage Senator Sanders to run as an Independent. Thank You!

Many many years ago I thought there was a law if a bull was over 1 year old they could not go out to pasture. Is this true I don't know if you find out let me know I believe it is.

Re: “The Gun: How I Bought an AR-15 in a Five Guys Parking Lot

I have to wonder how many of these mass killings, with guns or otherwise, were committed because someone became unhinged after reading a specific published article of propaganda that set them off? It's very easy for any writing, article, story or blog, to light the fuse on these psychopathic time bombs that are just sitting out there cruising an internet the founding fathers never imagined would exist when they wrote the 1st amendment.

I think people like Paul and sites like Seven Days, should be required to have a license to publish these assault articles. And that they should be limited in how many of these articles they are allowed to write every year. There should also be a severe penalty for any mis-truths and/or blatant lies. They should be required to check & document every single fact and opinion against a government sanctioned database before the article is allowed to be published and their licenses subject to revocation if their opinions are not in line with what the government considers to be the "correct opinions"

Are not now, every employee in every journalism office all over the country, in danger of a mass killing/bombing/arson or shooting because someone reading this endless diatribe finally gets fed up and loses it. Could be 20 such events just in the next month because of the extensive reach of modern journalism, the founding fathers surely never envisioned.

"Laws don't mean a thing to criminals"

Well said. Problem is, common sense and facts don't mean a thing to would-be journalists or politicians.

Paul, you bought this horrible, terrible, evil weapon without any background checks, and how many people did you hurt with it? ZERO! Exactly the same as 99.99999% of all the other gun owners out there.

Enforce the laws we have. Prosecute & actually punish criminals and stop persecuting the rest of us.
