How apropos, the Seven Days file picture of Bernie above is Sanders campaigning in Iowa.

BDE: TPrice: I hope this isn't a new revelation for you. Seven Days IS a left paper.

When the left is now implicated in treason, seems like a good time to disavow criminal activity and start searching for the truth. There is such a thing, you know.

This lays the groundwork for the legal charge of treason.

Re: “The Big Four: The Donors Who Fuel Vermont Conservatism

Seven Days consistently pushes left wing ideas. The stories feature promotion of Soros, Media Matters, deep state style propaganda, imo. Have been looking for your income sources. We have a problem with Communists destroying America and so many people are waking up. Getting at the media causing the damage is important. We need to call them out for who they are. Please direct me to your financial reports so we can learn who supports your lopsided, and frankly, uneven and biased reporting.
Appreciate it. Thank.

Re: “The Big Four: The Donors Who Fuel Vermont Conservatism

"If forced to choose a favorite, I'm partial to the rather salacious occupation of Money Bundling", as the term invokes a romantic, colonial-era image of sharing a bed with one's lucre and ill-gotten gains, but using a bundling board or sack to avoid sexual intimacy."

Sounds to me like you're jealous of other people's success. And, judging from your choice of florid imagery, you might benefit from some therapy.

@ knowyourassumptions: "There is no such word as Plenipotenary"

So true! You've whittled Skipper's lifetime achievement "earnings" highlights down to:

Dark Overlord of a convenience store empire,
Gas price-fixing collusionist, and
"Money-bundling" Bush Ranger.

Re: “The Big Four: The Donors Who Fuel Vermont Conservatism

We are witnessing the unraveling of the deep state coup against our President. We are learning about the treason the Democratic Party has committed, so there is an urgency to support conservative who defend our Constitution against globalist fascism. There is no more important consideration than to remove all Democrats, socilists, progressives, from political office. #WalkAway. MAGA WWG1WGA.

It was cool when Jason Gibbs abandoned his car to avoid a DUI conviction in 2010 during his unsuccessful run for Secretary of State.

Re: “The Big Four: The Donors Who Fuel Vermont Conservatism

I respect Walter Moses right to publicly express his heartfelt if nave, belief that Mr. Vallee somehow "earns" the money he showers on Conservative political candidates - surrogates for his own failed multiple attempts to purchase election to higher office in Chittenden County.

But please, folks, whether Conservative or Liberal, Progressive, Libertarian or Liberty Union, can we agree to put aside personal biases, keep the fall campaign positive, and refrain from using incendiary and culturally insensitive language that references Skips "earnings".

Im positive that we can commit to civil discourse and find common ground, whether one thinks of Mr. Vallee as the dark overload of a convenience store empire, a gas price-fixing collusionist, a "money-bundling" Bush Ranger, or simply a former Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenitpotenary.

"Money in politics is what is wrong with America. Troublingly undemocratic."

Agreed. Applies to Repubs, Dems, and Progs.

They should donate to organizations that are trying to raise money for low-income housing or homeless shelters and not just politicians

Re: “The Big Four: The Donors Who Fuel Vermont Conservatism

To inherit wealth and toss it away on useless politicians is one thing. To earn it as some have, and toss it away really boggles the mind. So many possible good deeds to be done with money, that throwing it at what we have for candidates is like lighting the proverbial cigar with a $100 bill.
Yeah Skip, that's you.

Re: “The Big Four: The Donors Who Fuel Vermont Conservatism

It is always so amazing to me that one could inherit great wealth and find nothing better to do than throw it at politicians. All the imagination of a cinder block.

Re: “The 'I' Word: Why Welch, Leahy and Sanders Aren't Ready to Impeach

"No one can say what law President Trump has violated."

We'll see about that when Mueller is done.

In the meantime, how about the "law" against every single damn word that comes out of his mouth being a lie? The latest one being that NBC "fudged" the April 2017 video of him being interviewed by Lester Holt and admitting that he fired Comey because of the Russia investigation. President Dumbbell never said anything about that video being "fudged" before yesterday. But he's finally figured out that his admission on that video was an incredibly stupid thing for him to say (even though it was true), so now, 18 months later, he suddenly claims that NBC "fudged" the video.

Or the one four months ago where he told the reporter he didn't know anything about Stormy Daniels being paid off, and didn't know where Cohen got the money for that payoff. Only to have it come out on an audiotape that he knew all about it and paid Cohen back himself.

Or how about the "law" about not being a big fat pathetic baby when an American hero (who didn't claim "bone spurs" to avoid military service) dies and takes some attention away from Trump, and not lowering the White House flag?

He's a disgusting, corrupt, petty, lying, piece of dirt.

Re: “The 'I' Word: Why Welch, Leahy and Sanders Aren't Ready to Impeach

Trump has violated the Emoluments clause of the Constitution every day since he took office. If Obama had done the same thing, leaving aside all the other asinine things Trump has done and said, the Congressional GOP would've had 20 different "investigations" going. Instead, what little sense of ethics and spine the Congressional GOP had is being buried with John McCain.

The only thing more anti-American and pathetic than Donald Trump himself are those who excuse, defend, or cheer on his actions.

Re: “The 'I' Word: Why Welch, Leahy and Sanders Aren't Ready to Impeach

No one can say what law President Trump has violated. His campaign employee "May" have violated tax laws, that is not Trumps fault since it was back in 2006. The money to the porn star was a non disclosure contract that is legal. Similar to what Clinton did on one of his many sexual assaults. And if he used his own money to pay her off there is no crime. Just a Witch hunt. The left just can't get over that he is President and Hillary lost.
