Re: “Sanders to Return to Iowa in September

It would be a revolution if he ran & won as an independent and, at the same time, helped flush the senate and congress of the republicans and democrats. Just imagine this country with a solid and unified government that actually represented the interests of the people again.

Re: “As He Ponders a Presidential Run, Sanders Crushes Off-Year Fundraising Record

I like Bernie Sanders but I have to say, I don't like seeing him standing under the Democratic Party sign. Both the DNC & RNC should be tried for Treason. We will not again have an government of, for and by the people while these two parties hold a monopoly on our political system.

Re: “ICE Halts Deportation of Migrant Activist Danilo Lopez — For Now

You would think law abiding citizens would want their Senators to uphold the oaths of office they swore when they keep getting reelected. To support and defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Not circumvent the Federal government employees from doing their jobs, and showing poor examples to the public by ignoring the law and preventing the Federal government law enforcement officers that you fund and are undermining for cheap underhanded election maneuvering for your next "photo op". Shame on you! We used to call people traitors for less.

Re: “Vermont Police Take Hands-Off Approach to Investigating Massage-Parlor Prostitution

I'll play devil's advocate here. I've been to Rub Maps and here in the states and Rub Maps has more protection and leeway. The reviews are spot on with what you're getting. The real problem here is the lack of govt regulation!! The sex trade is just like the drug trade, if it wasn't for our Puritan politics, things like these can easily be monitored and regulated.

Re: “Williston Landlord Charged With Allowing Prostitution, Customers May Be Identified in Court

Does anyone see this listed on Rub Maps? I'm trying to find it cause I'm shocked something like this could happen. What is this world coming to, I never such a world of "happy endings" existed.

Re: “Sanders to Return to Iowa in September

Sanders would certainly serve the interest of the majority of Americans. The question is whether the majority will acknowledge that or whether the marketing techniques of big money will prevail.

It would be a revolution indeed.

Re: “As He Ponders a Presidential Run, Sanders Crushes Off-Year Fundraising Record

Our Senator and Congressman are, of course, shocked and appalled at the role money plays in campaigns, especially the protection of incumbents.

Re: “Burlington Will Investigate Alternatives to Buffer Zone

A person has the right to access a health care facility protected from "obstructing, detaining, hindering, impeding, or blocking a person's entry or exit from a clinic." No one questions that part of the ordinance which has survived the Supreme Court's ruling.
Why is there an "urgency" to protect anyone from speech that they would rather not listen to? Isn't being subject to unwanted speech the price we pay for our own ability to speak our minds?

Re: “Oh, Boies! Shumlin's Campaign War Chest Dwarfs Milne's

I am a candidate for Governor with a growing base of support. I am fascinated with Paul's insistence that I am not worth his time to cover. Can anyone explain it? For the record, I am spending my own money, roughly $2000 so far in the race. I really want to get money out of politics, but Paul wants to keep it the singular bench mark of viability it would appear.

Re: “Burlington School District Asks City for a Loan of up to $4.8 Million

So your lack of preparation and ability to operate within budget is now everyone else's problem?

A concern I have is this could be used to circumvent the voting process. Instead of cutting costs especially at the bloated administrative level. If the citizens vote to not approve budget increases but yet they borrow money to meet an increase who pays that loan back? The citizens naturally will be forced to pick up a tab they don't approve of.

Not saying this is the case here. Just that hopefully checks and balances are in place.
