Re: “After 20 Years, Hardware Store to Open in Downtown Burlington

"Don't be blinded by the hardware store."

Good news. Oh, wait, this is bad news because it somehow involves Mayor Weinberger. I love all the folks who will always see a silver lining and find a gray cloud.

Re: “After 20 Years, Hardware Store to Open in Downtown Burlington

Curtis Lumber on Pine Street has a good amount of hardware-type stuff if I remember correctly, although it may not be an official "hardware store". I have not been there in a long time and have no affiliation with it whatsoever.

Re: “After 20 Years, Hardware Store to Open in Downtown Burlington

Doesn't Curtis Lumber on Pine count as a hardware store? It's closer than the 3 miles north in the NNE?

Re: “After 20 Years, Hardware Store to Open in Downtown Burlington

Good! The nearest semi hardware store is Curtis lumber but there's a lot of things they don't have so this will be great except for the parking problem that was made by the defunct shopping mall problems made by Don the con and the ongoing street construction on ST. Paul St.

Re: “After 20 Years, Hardware Store to Open in Downtown Burlington

Don't be blinded by the hardware store. This is just another classic example of Miro partnering with a business man to pad his own pockets and take away from the City. Why is this store in downtown? Who benefits from it? The Marketplace? Students? What about the real citizens of Burlington? I smell a rat.

Wonderful, wonderful news! A hardware store has been sorely missed since Hagar Hardware closed on Church Street!

Re: “Supreme Court Orders New Trial for Former Senator Norm McAllister

They tried to railroad him. The woman who lied under oath should be charged and go to prison.

Harry Truman said it best when he said when it comes to voting for a Democrat or a Democrat the people will vote for the Democrat every time.

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

"People with gmail accounts get those just about every week. That isn't evidence of anything."

You're absolutely right: it isn't evidence of anything. And yet, it's exactly the kind of non-evidence that our President uses to make all kinds of wacky and blatantly false allegations. Like that Obama "tapped" his hotel room (no evidence ever produced). That there was massive voter fraud in the 2016 election (DISproved by his own commission). That there was massive voter fraud in the recent mid-term elections (no evidence cited). That there are "middle east terrorists" in the caravan of Honduran asylum seekers coming to the U.S. border (no evidence ever produced). The list goes on and on and on.

"Before her arrest, Palacios Rodriguez had received an electronic notification that an unauthorized individual had tried to access her email account."

People with gmail accounts get those just about every week. That isn't evidence of anything.

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

"In our Bennington DMV office, we have detected some changes where people are coming from outside of Vermont and trying to get a drivers privilege card. Our investigation has determined that theyre not residents of the state of Vermont, Glen Button, director of the Department of Motor Vehicles Enforcement Division, told Vermont Watchdog.

As originally reported in the Brattleboro Reformer, the Department of Motor Vehicles recently discovered 130 invalid applications in its Bennington branch, in the southwest corner of the state bordering New York and Massachusetts.

Were still working our way through that, but it appears that a number of those applications were fraudulent, and we will be taking action to suspend those privilege cards, Button said."

At least you know what you're going to get. In a store it won't be treated with poison.

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Numbers Game

As usual VT. maintains their reputation for the highest tax state. Medical marijuana is already way more expensive than street pot. I'll go to Maine for a couple day vacation and buy my pot. Spend money on food and fun. Screw VT.

Re: “Supreme Court Orders New Trial for Former Senator Norm McAllister

"This is another disgusting opinion from our disgusting Supreme Court."

What's disgusting is your shocking attitude toward the rule of law. Hey, you know he's guilty of whatever he's accused of, so why bother giving him a trial based on admissible evidence? Actually, why bother giving him a trial at all?

You know who thinks exactly like you do? Donald Trump. Congratulations.

With your attitude toward the rule of law, you should hope YOU never get charged with a crime.

PTSD is not a qualifying medical condition for a medical marijuana card unless I'm missing something in the statutes...
