Re: “Burlington City Councilor Accuses Other Members of Racism

Old white Petrarca is a parody of himself and he doesnt even know it.

In the name of anti-racism, he should be out there now painting all the white sidewalks in Burlington black! Why are sidewalks white?! Who said concrete should be white?! White sidewalks are proof that Mayor Weinberger is racist!

OMG, why does the Mayors office order WHITE paper for writing and printing at City Hall?! Thats so racist! In solidarity, Burlington should be using only black paper!

Why does the City allow anything to be white?! The police cars shouldnt be black and white! They should just be black! Or Hispanic! Having any white on a police car is racist!

Why does the city allow any houses to be painted white?! Why do we allow the municipal parking garages to be made of white concrete?! Why do we allow City Market to sell white bread and white sugar and white flour and vanilla ice cream and white cottage cheese and white yogurt?!

Please go find a white public toilet to clog as a protest.

Re: “Vallee Accuses Sanders of Seeking Legal Retribution 'To Make a Point'

I remember the "gas wars" of years past..On Riverside Ave, Shel Rd..wherever there was a group of gas stations..For some
reason, this now never happens..Gas prices are close to exactly the same anywhere in northwestern Vt.. Gas retailers have stopped competing. I thought Vallee and his right wing friends were all for free enterprise? Thanks Sen Sanders for doggedly looking into this...

Re: “The Strength Within: Kelly Breeyear Helps Fellow Moms Fight Addiction

A long article about the trials and failures of "opioid use disorder" mothers and what's best for them. Very little on what's best for their children except an implicit belief that what's good for mom is good for them . Sometimes perhaps. I understand this sounds cold but frankly I'm much more concerned with the outcomes of these kids then that of their parents . Actually this article doesn't seem too concerned with the fathers .

And I thought court diversion was ONLY for people under the age of 18

Re: “Vallee Accuses Sanders of Seeking Legal Retribution 'To Make a Point'

The documentation here shows that Sanders and his staff intentionally misrepresented what the FTC reported to them in 2012 in order to support Bernies attack on a group of family-owned businessses in Vermont. They lied to the public and the legislature and the press never dug deep enough to question these claims. You might not like Skip Vallee or the price you pay for gasoline, but you ought to be in favor of some kind of integrity by our elected officials.

Come on... He was just seeing if she got home okay, just like he does with all his male coworkers and employees...

Re: “Church Street Mural Vandalism Suspect Avoids Criminal Charges

What if the mural was actually a veiled criticism of our lack of diversity and we just didn't get it? Nah...

If anyone is curious, Samuel de Champlain was actually French (born in France, not Vermont).

Re: “Church Street Mural Vandalism Suspect Avoids Criminal Charges

For the record, many people consider the never-ending we-know-better-than-the-rest-of-you acts of self righteousness by a handful of sad old white hippies in Burlington to be a serious offense against our community.

Re: “Vallee Accuses Sanders of Seeking Legal Retribution 'To Make a Point'

I have and always will boycott all Maplefields gas stations. I refuse to enrich Vallee and enable him in his slimeball tactics and right-wing extremist politics. Sorry Skip, but you do not deserve my hard earned cash when you undermine people in your community through your greed.

Re: “Burlington City Councilor Accuses Other Members of Racism

I don't live in Burlington anymore, and I don't know anything about this resolution, but I know Ali and I know he is a very good man with a very good heart who has worked very hard to make sure the underrepresented have a voice. Based on this, I believe if he is calling foul there is something foul.

Re: “Walters: Baruth to Propose Waiting Period for Gun Purchases

Baruth needs to take a flying leap. If not for rampant voter fraud he would not be in office.
He does not represent Vermont or Vermonters. On behalf of many many Vermonters.
WE WILL NOT COMPLY

Re: “Church Street Mural Vandalism Suspect Avoids Criminal Charges

Burlington wimps out on justice should be the headline.
Even considering the Abeneki agrees the vandal went over board.
Thus also showed contempt of court when the vandal (and he admits to it so he is a vandal), when he blew off the court date.

Did Maier agree to this? For the record, many people consider the racist mural to be a serious offense against our community.

Re: “Scott Defends Vermont National Guard, Says No Investigation Needed

Scott is one of the boys, and he mirrors Cray's weak, permissive leadership. Why anyone expected better from him, I don't know. Dems have got to stop falling for GOP "nice guy" masquerades. Sue Mintner would have dealt with these good ole boys firmly and justly. Rallying issue, future elections.

Re: “Church Street Mural Vandalism Suspect Avoids Criminal Charges

Why would anyone be surprised as this non-punishment comes from the very same Ms. George who thinks coddling drug addicts by providing them with safe injection sites is a way to combat the opoid epidemic? In the case of Maier, she is simply rewarding criminal behavior under the guise of bringing the community together and all that warm and fuzzy liberal rhetoric. Yet another glaring example of why I am leaving this (dare I say it here!) GOD forsaken state called Vermont. And I could care less if Trump's whining lawyer who doesn't have a set and now cries "Foul!" paid off Trump's sex partners. I thank GOD every day that Trump's president and not Clinton.
