Re: “Shumlin: Vermont Will Continue to Welcome Syrian Refugees

The refugees I have seen photos of were military age males. And they will stand in front of our State Capitol and scream for all of the things they would not fight for in their native countries. Be prepared. This will get ugly. It's not immigration, it is an invasion.

Re: “Confederate Flag Riles Some City of Burlington Employees

It never ceases to amaze me the lengths to which some people will go to control what other people legally do or say. We played "yankees and rebels" as a child in Tennessee just as other kids played cowboys and indians. Get over it! This is one American who could start spouting off about what offends me but I excuse things because I believe in our freedoms!

Re: “Senate: Hands Off Cellphones at Stoplights

Honestly, I am a delivery driver for an auto parts store and I see more than most folks do on the roads. Making cell phone use illegal has not done much to curb use among "classic" offenders. There are too many people who feel that rules do not apply to them. I have seen little, if any, enforcement measures. Let's face it, with police departments stretched to their limits, the officers have little time to just sit around and wait for someone with an active phone conversation to drive by. I don't know what the answer is. Perhaps auto makers could add cell signal blocking devices to cars that would activate when the vehicle is put into gear?

Re: “One Year Later: Was Opiate Addiction Addressed?

I still wouldn't walk the streets of Rutland at night without a gun. I don't think much has changed. The thugs get busted and they just move to another dump house and setup shop again.

Re: “Faced With Revenue Downgrade, Shumlin Orders Budget Cuts

Typical of a Socialist Democrat... Mr. Shumlin might be seeing what working conservatives have been preaching for the past 6 years. Socialism only works up until the point you reach when you run out of other people's money to spend. What we need in Vermont are some productive and well-paying jobs and a whole lot less spending on people whom are not willing to be productive. It seems that good jobs are not service industry or retail minimum-wage positions. Perhaps we could look at making Vermont friendly to industry?

Re: “Burlington Voters Approve Gun Control Measures by Big Margins

The only people whom should fear the guns of a law-abiding citizen are those that have done something for which they should be shot. Of those nine homicides in 2013, how many were drug related? Why don't we address the real problem and leave average gun owners, good people, alone?

Re: “Legislature Poised to Raise Campaign Contribution Limits for Candidates, Parties and PACs

No! This is nothing more than another way to protect Government For The Wealthy! It's bad enough that our "leaders" (I use the term loosely) are so out of touch with the ever dwindling middle class working people already. We are tired of big government. We are tired of people who vote for a living. We are tired of leaders who answer only to those rich enough to buy their loyalty. We are tired of leaders who take care of themselves at the expense of working taxpayers. We are damn tired of those who choose social services as a way of life. End the madness! This is nothing short of INSANITY!
