Re: “A Vermont Lawyer Says He'll Take Payment in Bitcoin

Interesting, but is the bill issued in BTC or USD? If it's issued in USD, accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment is more like accepting a credit card. The swings in BTC prices won't matter if you have to convert BTC to USD to find out how much you owe on the bill.

Re: “I'll Be Droned for Christmas: A Seasonal Tale From Church Street

Scott is right. The FAA regulations change if you are using one for commercial reasons. The NY Giants got in trouble for this.

Re: “I'll Be Droned for Christmas: A Seasonal Tale From Church Street

That was a very windy night. I remember seeing the drone and thinking how irresponsible it was to be flying over wall-to-wall people in those conditions. This could have ended very differently.

Re: “I'll Be Droned for Christmas: A Seasonal Tale From Church Street

As has been said before: can't wait for the inevitable drone meets 12 gauge shotgun. It will happen even if the Church Street Marketplace, a privileged group, is responsible for the drone.
Half-hearted apology huh? Ron Redmond ought to get his act under control.

Re: “A Year After Al Franken's Visit, Vermont Dems React to His Scandal

Lets keep track of the politicians that have the courage to demand that someone from their own party step down! You won't need a calculator! All that we will hear is excuses for those offenders and then comments like "they apologized so that makes it OK". Where is the outrage from Women's groups? Where is the outrage from Bernie who is outraged about everything? The democrats and republicans will go into full attack mode if the offender is from the other party, but will always protect their own. Do any of them have the integrity to stand up and say "this disrespect of women is WRONG and you have to go!" No excuses! Just resign! Enough is enough. I look forward to our elected officials from Vermont doing the right thing!

Re: “A Year After Al Franken's Visit, Vermont Dems React to His Scandal

Yup these liberal democrats perverts are all the same... Protect their own kinds... Look what they did for Billy Boy Clinton, he lied to the American public, "I did not have sex with that woman", he had sex/raped women when he was Governor of Arkansas, but they didn't do a thing to him.This Al Franken is a sex pervert period. If you ever watch Joe Biden caress young girls, whisper in their ear you would see how perverted he is. Just because these bast--ds are politicians does not give them a free pass to get away with this. They should be impeached, their pension taken away from them and they should do prison time... this goes for democrats and republicans. They were voted into office to work not have sex. Leahy should have said, Franken needs to go

Re: “A Year After Al Franken's Visit, Vermont Dems React to His Scandal

So typical of the Democrat Double Standard . . . Leahy, Minter and the rest of the uglies will excuse or at best lightly chastise the offensive and often corruption of one of their own while screaming to hang any Republican who is even a used of anything remotely similar. The whole lot of you make me sick.

Re: “A Year After Al Franken's Visit, Vermont Dems React to His Scandal

Look, I am a guy and I like females, BUT, really, how is touching someones breasts, or butt, exciting if it is not mutual. This is 8th grade stuff, do these idiots grow up ?. I will say it again, even though married many years, I still look (duh), but I do not get my rocks off by touching anyone,. Trump is just as bad as is Wiener and the rest of these kids

Show me one government agency that this has not happened in the past, it has happened in the congress and even the guy who thinks he is a president has done it, state government and federal government. It has happened everywhere..

If a photo surfaced of President Trump reaching for a sleeping woman's breasts, Democrats and CNN would be calling for the death penalty.

Re: “A Year After Al Franken's Visit, Vermont Dems React to His Scandal

I worked very closely with Al on SNL for five seasons. He is a wonderfully smart and creative comic force. He was always great to work with in the wee hours as we created show openings like his Stuart Smalley segment. I have to assume from what I have witnessed recently that he brings the same tireless work ethic that he had at SNL to his exciting work as a Senator. This recent attempt to take him down is careless and stinks of self promotion. Perhaps Al should call up Stuart Smalleys famous quote: Im good enough. Im smart enough. And doggone it, people like me! Stay strong Al!

Re: “A Year After Al Franken's Visit, Vermont Dems React to His Scandal

So far Franken has no problems with me ( Who knows what comes next) 2 weeks playing around with a comedian & a showgirl and they think the picture of a comedian acting for the camera is forced sex is nuts. In my lifetime 78 years, I have seen this innocent scene played out plenty of times. This is not my definition of sexual harassment. this is an overreaction ( all publicity is good) when you are an entertainer. Some could consider it bad taste but we all know female abuse when we see it .This is not it.

Re: “A Year After Al Franken's Visit, Vermont Dems React to His Scandal

Let's see what the Ethics Committee comes up with? Areas the ethics committee investigates: Gifts, Travel, Campaign Activity, Conflicts of Interest, Prohibition on Unofficial Office Accounts, Constituent Service, and Franking. Either political party has an effective veto over the actions of the committee. Men are in the majority, 8-2 House Ethics Committee, 5-1 Senate Ethics Committee. Rarely have the committees taken action to expel or even censure or admonish a member. "Let's see what the ethics committee comes up with" is a way of sidestepping calls for resignation and squelching public discussion.

Good people at DPW, Burlington is lucky. I can't imagine city officials anywhere else I've lived coming to my home to investigate a potential problem.

Re: “Burning Question: Was it a Neko Case of Mistaken Identity?

My sister lives next door to the house and my brother in law helped move equipment for the fire fighters the night of the fire. Ive seen Neko walking by their house several times when Ive been there. I never knew who she was before the fire but after seeing her picture on the news we put two and two together. Its to bad about the fire the barn and house were very nice.
