Re: “Union Claims Howard Center Tried to 'Stifle' Federal Investigation

The Howard employees should earn no less than state employees doing the same work. These "designated agencies" are a white collar sweatshop. The low pay is insulting and outrageous. The legislature will not support fair pay for these employees until they become much more militant. Just like massive expressions of dissatisfaction by teachers in WA, so too must these workers say "ENOUGH."

Re: “GOP County Chair Deletes Tweet That Said Kavanaugh Accuser 'Was Having a Sexual Fantasy'

You all make me laugh.. Have you even been following this at all. Ford claims she called her friend on the cell phone that night. Mmm cell phones didn't exist in 1982. lie #1 The first cell phone came out in 1983 with a hefty price tag of $3,995. Why did Dianne Feinstein. hold the letter secret for mos? Why didn't she investigate it? Why sit on it till the last minute? Ford claims to be a victim, why didn't she report it. ? I was attacked when I was 16, I fought back, kicked, screamed bite and scratched and he was bigger then I was. I went right to the police.. I didn't wait for 36+ yrs. He was arrested within 2 hrs. He had the marks on him that I gave him. There's so many holes in her story. She's not just hurting herself but she's hurting every real victim who was attacked/, raped out there. When they find out Ford is lying that's going to make it hard for other women. Remember a while back when a girl a college student name male students who assaulted women. Some of the males were expelled and come to find out all the ones she named were innocent... She ruined their lives. Think about it !!!

Re: “Leahy: Firing Rosenstein 'Would Scream of Cover-Up'

What planet are these unhenged comments coming from? Leahy is deep state, and they are all being taken down. We are a nation fighting against globalist left wing communists. The arrests of Obama, Hillary, McCabe, Comey, Rosentein, and a whole lot more are soon to happen. Tired old guard guys that continue to profit from this corrupt deep state are in trouble. 51,000 sealed indictments, last count reported. No to liberals, no to Progressives, no ti Rinos. Trump supporters MAGA. #RedWaveVT.

Re: “Leahy: Firing Rosenstein 'Would Scream of Cover-Up'

Mr Leahy, turn in your resignation papers, your too old for your job, you are getting senile. You democrats have a blind eye, Rosenstein made the remarks about secretly recording Mr. Trump and about the 25th Amendment which is against the law, but you approve of that. You all wanted Comey fired, you democrats hated him except
for Clinton because he said before the investigations that they won't find anything.. When Pres Trump did fire him you all were in an uproar. Both Comey and Rosenstein both committed treason, they both lied. They are both crooks. Why don't you stand up for all the people instead of the liberal elites? All you politicians need to remember YOU WORK FOR THE CITIZENS we don't work for you WE ARE YOUR BOSS!!! You have been in TOO LONG.... I don't understand why you democrats always stand by liars, would you all ever stand up for an honest person??? Leahy, Sanders, and Welch have had their pockets lined plenty of times..

Re: “Bove's Launches Monthly Pop-Up Dinners in Milton

Just a reminder that the Boves are predatory landlords. Even if our elected officials are friendly with them and take their campaign contributions, we shouldnt tolerate their business practices that prey on vulnerable and low income Vermonters. You can read a bunch of stories from real Vermonters at

Boycottboves.com.

We hope youll join us in boycotting this event and all Bove products until they fix up their predatory business behavior.

Re: “Leahy: Firing Rosenstein 'Would Scream of Cover-Up'

Those old republican men have a closed mind and need to be replaced and voted out of office. They are determined to nominate kavanaugh no matter what it takes. What is the hurry other than they know they are going to lose the election and this is their last chance

Re: “Leahy: Firing Rosenstein 'Would Scream of Cover-Up'

Leahy must be as dense as a rock if he doesn't understand by now that there is no gutter too deep for the Republicans not to dive in to in order for them to maintain their power.

There will be no "Constitutional Crisis" if the Mueller report shows that Trump has committed any crimes as the Congressional GOP has shown itself to be void of ethics or morals or any common decency, much less any spine in being a check on Presidential power. The GOP will sit on its hands if Trump should shut down the Mueller investigation.

This is the total Corporate Capture of the government by some of the worst people on the planet. Trump's real slogan is "Make America Bleed to Death".

Re: “Burlington Voters Will Consider $100 Million in School, Wastewater Bonds

Here comes Miro's "Shock Doctrine". These higher taxes will hit lower income residents the most, drive up rents and property taxes for what few lower middle class homeowners there are , which will help Miro do what he really wants: drive out the poor folks and gentrify the city.

I also can't help but wonder, if BHS is in such disrepair for so long, what was former mayor/ vaudeville song and dance man Peter Clavelle doing the whole time he was in office besides not properly funding the city pension fund? Now he shills for that out of state parasite, Sinex.

If taxation was progressive, these bond proposals wouldnt unfairly hit renters hardest.

Leahy has tired of pretending he has an independent mind. He now sounds like a softer gentler version of Dianne Feinstein.

Re: “Making a Stink: Man Protests Burlington's Wastewater Dumps

I loved the "what about the cows!" comment. So typical of the Burlington progressive mindset. This time though its pretty difficult to blame rural hillbillies for your failed plans. Its Burlington's waste, no one else's. Fix it, and don't expect the rest of the state to pay for it.

Re: “Burlington Officials Unveil $30 Million Fix for Wastewater Problems

Dumping human waste into Lake Champlain? Is this the face of the progressive agenda that Burlington wants to foist on the rest of the state?

Re: “GOP County Chair Deletes Tweet That Said Kavanaugh Accuser 'Was Having a Sexual Fantasy'

I am so glad that women today feel empowered to speak out about these issues! I was a victim of a date rape (apparently drugged) but blamed myself, thinking "how stupid was I to go to this guy's place to get his help with a writing project??" This was in 1975; I was a sophomore in college and in South Carolina. I got pregnant from the assault (yes, it WAS his) and had an abortion, thank you, Roe v Wade. I never said anything to anyone about it, but I did drop out of the creative writing class so I would never have to see him again. Honestly, in that era, there was no other option.

Why is it, one wonders, that over 90% of Twitter hijackings happen to right-wing Republicans who drink a lot of alcohol?
