Re: “Dakota Access Pipeline Opponents March on TD Bank in Montpelier

I wouldn't call 1868 ancient and treaties are only "supposed" if you are the type of person who uses small pox blankets to handle situations such as these.

Re: “Dakota Access Pipeline Opponents March on TD Bank in Montpelier

According to some person (I won't stoop to calling him names), only OTHER people, in distant, convenient locations, should make sacrifices in recognition of supposed ancient Native American land rights, not himself.

Re: “Dakota Access Pipeline Opponents March on TD Bank in Montpelier

In the 1960's in the Deep South, some newspapers stopped taking ads from businesses including banks that profited off racism. I won't hold my breath on this one concern concerning Seven Days since they still take money from a multinational tobacco company that uses indentured poor for making their "Native Spirits" organic cigarettes. Part of the Reynolds company impacting indigenous people. Our news media can make a major impact by not giving ad space to these companies. We are all in this struggle.

Re: “Dakota Access Pipeline Opponents March on TD Bank in Montpelier

According to some idiot, nobody has the right to oppose the pipeline unless they first abandon their homes. I'm glad there are decent people standing up for what is right.

Re: “Dakota Access Pipeline Opponents March on TD Bank in Montpelier

Please, if you have not done so already, move any money you have from banks like these to your locally owned credit union. It is a co-op. You own it, they invest your money in your local community. Put your money where your values are.

OMG. Alsop made it as high as one of several hearing officers in workers compensation cases and wants us all to know. Hey, I know someone who was promoted to senior assistant shift supervisor at Red Lobster.

Re: “Howard Dean Drops Bid for DNC Chairmanship

The Dems. Not only lost the White House they also lost the house and Senate so I think that defines sinking ship. I'm surprised you missed that knowyourassumptions. The reason they lost are countless so here are the big ones:1. Very flawed canidate 2. Not listing to the people 3. Selling a bunch of lies for the past eight years. I could go on all day but I have things to do and unlike the sore losers I'm busy thinking about a brighter future for America just like our Great president elect Donald Trump.

Re: “Howard Dean Drops Bid for DNC Chairmanship

Howard's 50-state strategy was sorely missed over the years since his leaving this post. I love Obama, but his decision not to support Dean or enlist him in his cabinet really rankles me; we lost the man who knew how to fight the good fight, and gained the woman who did not know how to run the DNC. I like Wasserman-Schultz, don't get me wrong; but her leadership was not what Howard's was, when he was chair.

Re: “Howard Dean Drops Bid for DNC Chairmanship

With a less than equal election where Dean was one of the superdelegates who helped make it less than equal.

Re: “Howard Dean Drops Bid for DNC Chairmanship

"The Dems lost an election mainly because they failed to listen to their constituents. Dean was a part of that."

Not a very responsive or insightful answer. Or a correct one. Hillary got millions more primary votes than Bernie. So I guess you're wrong: in nominating Hillary the Party listened to their constituents.

Re: “Burlington Mall Opponents Sue to Get Vote Result Tossed

"I have never said the things you allude to, nor do I attack people."

Really?

Your very first comment on this blog was a nasty attack on the people of Harbor Place (the shelter for homeless people) in Shelburne, and its supporters.

Next was an attack on the morals of the VT Land trust and the Burlington College board.

Next was an attack on Paul Burns of VPIRG because of his support for wind power development; and accusing wind supporters of being liars; and accusing VT Gas of lying; and accusing David Blittersdorf of being a liar; and accusing a wind developer of being a liar and the regulators of being corrupt.

Then there are your personal attacks on the morality of everyone whos involved in the VT Rail project in Shelburne.

Then you accused Mayor Weinberger of being a liar about student housing.

Next you attacked the motives and ethics of housing advocates.

Next you accused Mayor Weinberger and various Burlington officials of corruption because they support the mall redevelopment, and attacked the ethics of Joan Shannon.

You attacked the personal integrity of Sue Minter.

You attacked the supporters of the Burlington Air Show.

You insinuated that a Vermont Air National Guard pilot is somehow corrupt because he lives in an expensive home.

And this does not even count all of your endorsements and cheerleading and "I agree's" and "hear, hear's" when Annette Smith personally attacks the morals of wind power developers, the Governor, Chris Recchia, and the members of the Public Service Board.

Where are all the follow-up stories about how Sanders support failed to help Minter across the finish line?

Re: “Howard Dean Drops Bid for DNC Chairmanship

I was using citizen's words so I'll defer to him on the sinking ship analogy. The Dems lost an election mainly because they failed to listen to their constituents. Dean was a part of that.

Re: “Howard Dean Drops Bid for DNC Chairmanship

"Dean is part of the reason the SS Democratic Party is sinking."

So the Dems lost a presidential election after holding the Presidency for two consecutive terms.

Care to explain why that means that "Democratic Party is sinking"?

And care to explain why it's Dean's fault?

Re: “In the Final Chapter, Keven's Story Becomes Kay's

Kay you were my friend, roomate, boss and mentor when I first came out. Although we drifted apart, your influence, weirdness and humor has never left my heart. Stopped by today to see you but you were sleeping...will try again.

Re: “Shumlin: Repealing Obamacare Would Be a ‘Disaster’ for Vermont

NONE of the 178 Republicans in the house or senate voted yes to the Affordable Care Act. Re-verified with Wikipedia.

Fake news and agendas go both ways.

Dean is a rat trying to flee the sinking ship known as the S.S Democratic Party.

Re: “Howard Dean Drops Bid for DNC Chairmanship

Howard decided to "step aside" when he realized he didn't have (and wasn't going to have) enough support to win.
