Re: “Walters: The Leahy-Gorsuch Two-Step

In the end, none of the "dancing" willl mean a thing because the GOP Senators will vote as a bloc and Gorsuch will win the day because Sen. Leahy and his Dem Senate colleagues rashly invoked the nuclear option and ended the 137-year-old 60-vote requirement to end a filibuster. Now the Dems will pay for that ill-considered bit of idiocy. And the Dems better hope Ruth Bader-Ginsburg stays healthy or Trump will get to place a second justice on the SUPCO.

Re: “Walters: Bernie Sanders Gets the Rock-Star Treatment

Bernie and Trump share a repugnant trait inasmuchas both have reaped the political benefits of hatefully attempting to divide America: Trump's nascent political success is partially due to his efforts to encourage voters to despise and distrust Moslems; Bernie's longtime political succees is entirely due to his efforts to encourage voters to share his odious class-envy to despise and dustrust "the wealthy."

Re: “ICE Arrests Two More Immigration Advocates in Burlington

Breaking into a country doesn't make you a citizen just as breaking into a house doesn't make you a homeowner.

Re: “Former Rutland Mayor Describes Election Loss in VICE Interview

Former Mayor Louras' obviously knew that bringing in the refugees was unpopular because he arrogantly opted not to share his plans with the public until the deed was done. His back-handed tactics outraged many voters. In many ways, Louras' elitist strategm was his way of calling Rutland voters "deplorables."

Re: “ICE Arrests Immigrant Worker Outside Burlington Courthouse

I would urge Seven Days to publish the arresting officer's affidavit of probable cause and any ancillary evidence such as Carrilo's BAC IN THEIR ENTIRETY that were the basis for the state's decision to charge Carrillo with DUI in the first place. The documents are public and immediately available upon request for a small fee at the courthouse. Why did Seven Days NOT include that information in this article? What is being hidden? This is only half a story at best. Exactly why did the prosecutor dismiss the charge in this case?? IF the charges were dismissed to avoid a conviction in some misguided attempt to be politically correct to assist Carrillo then every Vermonter should be outraged. I happen to believe DUI is a very serious offense as it annually accounts for more homicides, injury, and property damge in Vermont than any other single crime according to FBI and Nat Highway Administration data. Every Vermonter currently charged with DUI should get the fact base in this case and use it to seek dismissal, if their case is at all similar. Furthermore, every lawyer presently representing a DUI-charged client should hustle down to the Costello Courthouse, obtain the affidavits and ancillary evidence in this Carrillo case, to determine if they should seek immediate dismissal for their clients based on the precedent set in this Carrillo dismissal.

Re: “Walters: Students Channel Shumlin With Pete’s Tweets

To quote Shumlin's good buddy Hillary Clinton (referencing the murder of the four U.S. heroes martyred in Benghazi): "At this point, what difference does it make?" Shummie was an irrelevancy BEFORE he left office.
His attempt to self-resurrect is frankly kind of sad and pathetic.
