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."
