Re: “Letters to the Editor (11/14/18)

"Redstone's Erik Hoekstra is a large donor to the Weinberger campaign."

Lots of people donated to Weinberger's campaigns. And lots of people donated to Driscoll's campaign. Please define "large."

And are you suggesting that therefore Mr. Hoekstra's dissenting view on CityPlace should be taken seriously, or should not be? What is your point here?

Re: “Vermont Panel to Propose 26 Percent Tax on Retail Weed

"....to generate sufficient revenue to self-fund the administrative and public health and safety program costs resulting from marijuana use ...". What costs? What is this about, to bail out failing prescription drug businesses, the alcohol sharks, and increased government job padding? 17% tax will definitely result in a massive blackmarket. Oh well, government is always eager to waste money and make others pay. Bernie taught you this didn't he? MAGA

It appears the guy was too tired to drive. Give him a lecture, send him to CRASH, or maybe even diversion. Hopefully he will be more careful from now on.

Re: “Lawsuit: Feds Used an Informant to Infiltrate Migrant Justice

I was at DMV South Burlington the other week and was amazed at the stream of 'non locals' coming in getting enhanced ID's.
ICE should be set up in the parking lot

Re: “Letters to the Editor (11/14/18)

I've observed a number of small children and dogs in that fountain "reflecting". God forbid we actually change the use of the park to what people actually use it for and get rid of dying trees to replace them with healthy new trees. Burlington is changing. Get. Used. To. It.

Re: “Lawsuit: Feds Used an Informant to Infiltrate Migrant Justice

As a reminder; those who entered this nation without obeying our established immigration procedures are criminals. Every single day they remain without permission of our nation they are re-offending. Their motives for committing their crime are irrelevant to their guilt or innocence. It is only after guilt / innocence is established that mitigating factors become relevant. So if you are a criminal, why are you surprised when the police come?

Re: “Lawsuit: Feds Used an Informant to Infiltrate Migrant Justice

Good point, Lone Ranger. I hate how godless the bible is. Isaiah 1:17, Jeremiah 22:3, Amos 5:11-15, Luke 4:18-19, Deuteronomy 16:20, the list goes on and on. It's almost as if one of the primary morals of the bible is to help those who are oppressed. But you're right, it's heresy.

Re: “Hole in the Mall: It's a 'Precarious Moment' for Burlington's CityPlace Project

Ms. Grape - At this stage of the game, the CityPlace rectal muscles appear played out and are prolapsed for all to witness. Neither a determined 4-5 finger phalangeal insertion by the developer, nor a temporary cranial obstruction from the most fat-headed municipal grandee, let alone a forked mayoral tongue, will be sufficient to plug the gaping hole downtown.

Re: “Food Shortage, Money Woes Lead to Takeover of Three Senior Housing Facilities

I commented on the article of the fourth facility today but this same exact thing is happening in Tennessee at Maybelle Carter Senior Living owned and managed by none other than East Lake Capital/ Andrew White. I have been filing complaints and notifying organizations since May and Tennessee has yet to do anything. I have a court ordered judgement and my father's estate is still due almost $4,400.

Re: “Court-Appointed Receiver to Manage a Fourth Senior Living Facility

The same exact thing is happening at a facility in Nashville TN managed by East Lake Capital named Maybelle Carter Senior Living. I have been trying to collect my father's estate refund since February and they also were not depositing checks. But Tennessee doesn't seem to be doing anything.

Re: “The Whole Tooth? Vermont's Head Warden Targeted for Covering His Tracks in Bear Case

Definitely and transparently an attempt to simply make the F&WD department and the commissioner look bad our of the frustration that the outlawing of trapping, then hunting then fishing is not happening in Vermont.
