Re: “Don't Panic: In Advance of Trump Inauguration, Burlington Activists Perform Hysteria

Public expressions are opinions and not invitations for debate. Outlaw "frivolous or silly or not normal" expressions and you make us all pirates and I don't want to be a pirate.

Albert how do you know I'm not a woman. Just because I don't agree with the actions these women are taking does not make me misogynistic, it just means that I don't think their action will result in any real change in our country. Also try tell the Democrats voting never changed anything. Everyone in this country the exercised their right to vote for Trump proved that voting can change things. But I not sure why I'm telling this to a self described anarchist you have already given up on the American political process I'm sure.

Election time surely does bring out the crazies. And another day goes by.. Incredible how time continues to pass, and how the world, despite all things political, manages to keep on spinning. Miraculous really. Keep breathing people, this is not the end, and could very well be the beginning of something not fuled by hate at all, but by justice, in a way we've never yet experienced. Time will tell. Until then, lets all try to be more focused on loving the people around us, rather than fearing the ones you only know through television PROGRAMMING.

Re: “Playtime: Chance McNiff, 'thoughts count'

Chance creates a life rhythm that enchances our prespectives. I had a few pictures of the Tower Hill Botanical Garden in Massachusetts that were just static by themselves. When l combined one of Chance's tracks to the video, the plain became majestic and mysterious. see for yourself at youtube..Also the art work by Ms. Jewett is the portal into the realm where Chance resides.

Citizen.............we anarchist like to say that if voting ever really changed anything then the capitalist class would have outlawed it long ago. By suggesting that these women "take off their dish gloves" and put their "big girl panties' on you not only reveal your women-hating misogyny but your ignorance of the role of protest in the United States. On MLK day, reflect on how immoral this country has been from genocide against Native Americans to slavery to Hiroshima to Vietnam to Jim Crow to Black Lives Matter to Standing Rock, ad nauseum. Read a book instead of lecturing people with your limited range of understanding and vile value system

And by the way Beyonce is no feminist she is still married to a man that has cheated and probably still cheats on her. She sounds like a real strong woman to me. NOT.

Hey good luck with your protest. In 4 years when the sky has not fallen and the world is a safer place due to President Trump be sure to stop protesting long enough to vote.

Citizen, in the words of the feminist Beyonce, "boy bye." Best of luck to you engaging in thoughtful and respectful civil discourse with your fellow citizens these next four years.

Re: “Don't Panic: In Advance of Trump Inauguration, Burlington Activists Perform Hysteria

LLU MULVANEY STANAK when did I suggest using violence again't you? I only gave you a suggestion for what you and your group could do with the items you stated you plan to hand out at your next event. I never suggested I would be involved. You sound like one of those democratic soldiers that went to Trump rallies to incite violence and then tried to blame the violence on Trump supporters. You Democrats play a dirty game. Then when people stand up to your lies you wine like babies. Maybe you and your group should leave America for awhile because you lost the election and things won't be going your way for sometime here in the good old USA. P.S you calling me a troll is very uncivil. I'm to tall to be a troll.

Re: “Don't Panic: In Advance of Trump Inauguration, Burlington Activists Perform Hysteria

Citizen, I am saying you are hiding behind your anonymous profile and not posting your name with your comments. I am. Also, today is MLK Day, hence my switched photo honoring him. Your gross and inappropriate comment about stuffing panties in my mouth is indeed a violent comment. You have no substance in what you have commented here and again, clearly no courage to actually be public in this forum. I have no interest in a public debate with someone who presents such sophomoric and nasty commentary as yourself.

Re: “Don't Panic: In Advance of Trump Inauguration, Burlington Activists Perform Hysteria

I'm in no way expressing violence but I would love to have,a public debate with you. And I notice that you keep accusing me of being afraid or unwilling to come out publicly but I notice you apparently think you are the great Dr. King judging by the pic. you post with, so who is hiding. Like I said please let me know where and when your next public event will happen and I'll be there. You will know it is me when you see my sign it will read "I am Citizen." We can discuss real issue the Trump administration will be facing and the real policies they will implement not the fake hysteria you and your group are spreading.

Re: “Don't Panic: In Advance of Trump Inauguration, Burlington Activists Perform Hysteria

Oh Citizen my dear, how would I know who you were at the next action when you don't have the courage to be public with your opinions or comments? Your quick ascent to using violent threats against me only further showcases why speaking truth to trolls like you matters more than ever. Where is your substance on the actual content of this article and the the issues we were raising about the policies the Trump administration are about to put in place? Seems like all you want to do is be misogynistic, inflammatory, and cowardice.

I'm glad to see that there are only 8 crazy people roaming church street these days. Looks like your ideas are really gaining support LLU Mulvaney Stanak. Maybe you should put off handing out the panties till summer that way more people might show up. Hmm.

Re: “Don't Panic: In Advance of Trump Inauguration, Burlington Activists Perform Hysteria

Oh, "Citizen!" Clearly from this comment and the other comments you make on Seven Days articles you totally represent why actions like these are important now and forever. Thank you for posting and giving us an idea for our next action---handing out big girl panties on church street! I wonder how many feminists could fit into one really, really big pair of big girl panties. Hmmm.

Isn't it so much easier to critique, especially online and anonymously, than it is to get out and actually do something?!

Re: “Don't Panic: In Advance of Trump Inauguration, Burlington Activists Perform Hysteria

"This is not normal" that is for sure. The actions of these people is ridiculous. The transfer of power is a normal part of the American process of democracy. If Tina Escaja and Laurie Essig are the caliber of professors teaching at UVM and Middlebury I will not be sending any kid of mine to those places. It is time to grow up people. Take your dish gloves off and put on your big girl panties ladies. Your time might be better spent thinking of ways to work with the new administration instead of playing chicken little on Church Street. The only thing you got right in you act is encouraging people to get involved in the political process by running for office.

Peter Shumlin is no JFK. Not even close.

Re: “Outgoing Governor Shumlin and August Burns Unveil New Portrait

Thank you, Rachel, for providing the background. When I first saw a photo of the portrait, I immediately thought, "Where have I seen this before?" It did not take long to locate JFK's official portrait. Technically, I imagine it is a lovely painting, certainly much more artful than my stick-figure drawings. Yet, it seems derivative and most importantly, in my view, clashes with the reality of former Gov. Shumlin's personna.

Ironically, Aaron Shikler mentioned that he drew his inspiration from a photograph of Ted Kennedy standing by his brother's grave at Arlington cemetery. http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-pho…

Re: “Outgoing Governor Shumlin and August Burns Unveil New Portrait

Guess I have to "opine" here. It's a great portrait, but not of Peter Shumlin. Not sure where the artist got that nose from, but it's not Shumlin's.
