Re: “Scott 'Resistant' to Using Vermont Guard for Immigration Roundup

"This state is in bad shape.. low employment, our young adults leaving the state, high amount on welfare, refugees comes first instead of Vermonters, liberals in control of the legislation, wants more Vermont citizens, yup more higher taxes.."

Prove it.

Re: “Walters: Sanders Alums Back Purity Test for Senate Dems

Mt. Philo you are correct Bernie does not owe 7days a thing but he does owe the people of Vermont everything. And 7days is reed by Vermonters every week for free so you would think he would want to use 7days to get his message out. But Bernie only cares about money and a 7days interview does not pay the bills. He is a sell out so it's time to wake up and vote him out. He no longer represents real Vermonters. #timetovotethebaldguysout

Earl was a great guy, and hard core goose hunter until the end. Decoying birds was the only way to hunt- pass shooting and sky busting for losers. we hunted every single day of the goose season up until this past September at 92 when he finally hung up his shotgun for good. We will miss you each goose season old friend. Jamey

Re: “Legislative Roomies Share Boxed Wine and Political Strategies

Nina Gaby, hang around Montpeculier for awhile and you will conclude it is fun. Don't see much progress on making Vermont more affordable do you? Lotsa BS about happy hour and illegal aliens, not much else happening. Oh yes, the ethics committee. As senator White said, "that's not going to happen", and it didn"t.

Re: “Walters: Sanders Alums Back Purity Test for Senate Dems

I think it's time that we, his constituents, start demanding Bernie speak with local media. He needs to be held accountable to the people he currently represents (sorrynotsorry if it eats into his precious book tour time).

For those of you who want to do something tangible to hold your elected officials accountable today, please contact Sanders' at any of the locations below and demand that as a Vermont Senator he make himself available to the Vermont press:

Washington D.C.:

U.S. Senate
332 Dirksen Building
Washington, D.C. 20510
tel (202) 224-5141
fax (202) 228-0776

Burlington:

1 Church St, 3rd Floor
Burlington, VT 05401
tel (802) 862-0697
tel (800) 339-9834
fax (802) 860-6370

St. Johnsbury:

357 Western Ave. Suite 1B
St. Johnsbury, VT 05819
tel (802) 748-9269
fax (802) 748-0302

Re: “After Fighting for Refugees, Louras Battles to Remain Rutland's Mayor

I think the residents of Rutland Vermont should deny Louras reelection to the office of Mayor because he was deceitful to them.

This whole process under Louras was well hidden from the public because he wanted to get his way..

This isn't just a matter of allowing refugees to come in to Rutland Vermont it is a matter of security that was completely ignored Louras.

If he wanted to act like a mayor he would have let this issue go to vote and let the people he supposedly represents decide what they felt was best for their community.

I don't think the residents of Rutland can trust this man in any way to represent them in the future.

Re: “At Public Meeting, Federal Officials Seek to Calm BTV Airport Uproar

@Senator Bernie Sanders, "progressive", "democratic socialist", and self-styled "revolutionary" fully supports military-corporate SACRIFICE ZONES. And of course they're in the poorest towns and neighborhoodo, where neo-liberlistas' donations don't attraCT action. He and @Senator Patrick Leahy have sold out working people to keep the corporate donations and the blessings of their military controllers.

Re: “At Public Meeting, Federal Officials Seek to Calm BTV Airport Uproar

I trust Jamie Longtin, who posted below about her experience living in Arizona, where they are already flying the F-35A. The forced VT basing of the F-35 fighter jet, against the Air Force's own wishes and own objective ratings system, is a failure of politics. A classic example of why so many people have tuned out altogether. When Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders refuse to even meet with a single constituent losing their homes thanks to their interference to force the F-35 here, the country is going to end up with someone like Donald Trump because "the opposition" refuses to offer an alternative.

Former NY Times journalist Chris Hedges has described the "sacrifice zones" across America of neighborhoods and people's lives destroyed for the profit of corporations like Lockheed-Martin. On the one hand, the rhetoric of Hedges is hyperbolic: Its the willingness on the part of people who seek personal enrichment to destroy other human beings And because the mechanisms of governance can no longer control them, there is nothing now within the formal mechanisms of power to stop them from creating essentially a corporate oligarchic state.

On the other hand, if you are among the immigrant refugees; working poor; or elderly of Winooski, South Burlington, Williston and parts of Burlington, among others, it rings true. Fortunately, there is still the legal system and the 5th Amendment/Takings Clause of the US Constitution, which, if applied by nonpartisan judges, will require just compensation to every property owner within the newly expanded "not suitable for residential use zone."
