Re: “ICE Arrests Immigrant Worker Outside Burlington Courthouse

wow Bob - seems you don't like migrant people very much. You know this guy was MARRIED in the US, worked and paid TAXES in the US and has CHILDREN in the US. So - what's your talking point other than bigotry?

Re: “Bus Service Resumes but Hard Feelings Remain

Alright guys,
Enough with this CCTA nonsense. We the consumers have the right to strike back against the union, and the company.
I propose that if there is any bit of decency in you as a human being you consider Boycotting CCTA once services are restored. People are losing jobs because of lack of transportation, it has also incurred travel expenses that folks cannot afford - this is unacceptable. The union is hurting us the folks that depend on their services to go to work, school and live our lives.
WE MUST boycott their services, and hurt them where their wallet is - just like they have done to us.
If CCTA were to lose enough passengers say 40% it would have a disastrous effect on the company's ability to pay their employees and continue operations.
Their business model requires two things for them to stay afloat, money from tax payers, and fares from passengers. Let's take a big cut out of their pie and send a message to all parties involved so they know the public finds this juvenile bickering and disagreement unacceptable.

Re: “A New Queen City Resident Weighs Her Internet Options


I totally agree with everything you said, and I agree I was very passionate and probably out of bounds for what should be acceptable in this great and open forum.

The truth is, I am very passionate about the good work BT has done for the community. Even though there has been some problems with them paying off their debts, we all agree that BT is singlehandedly one of the best things that has happened to Burlington in the last 10 years.

My biggest gripe with Ms. Freese was just the utter lack socio-political implications of her giving her hard earned cash to the corporate machine. It almost feels in someways that her article was an attack on the fellow Burlington folk that provide this excellent service to us with little consideration to the fact that her 39 or 60 dollars a month would be ensuring that someone, in her town could have another meal to eat, taxes that pay for our wonderful city services like snow plows, etc... and felt that it was just too shallow of a reason to turn her back on our neighbors.

Call me old fashioned, but I really try to be as out spoken as possible when it comes to BT - the fact that they laid fiber all through the city is helping secure Burlington as a technological center where innovation is possible.
