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".


this message brought to you by American Cannibals for Koch Brothers' Prosperity . . .have a nice day. :)

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?

Re: “Can Republicans Bring Down House Speaker Mitzi Johnson?

How I wish I could vote for Leland and Michael Morgan, both of whom I believe are far more grounded in reality than Mitzi and her Montpiler golden domers who live in another universe. I hope The Morgans kick butts out of office. And that many new faces are also in Montpelier next year!

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

Maslack Fields Mary: If you'd ever been sexually assaulted, you'd remember it, no matter how much time passes. I remember exactly what happened in 1972 when I was riding an overnight train, and woke up to find a strange man in the seat next to me with his hand in my crotch. I know I was I was travelling from Munich to Paris, but I can't tell you the train number or the day of the week. But it happened. In 1976 I was hitchhiking with my sister from Indianapolis to Bloomington in broad daylight, when the driver who stopped for us grabbed my breast as I was leaving his truck and said something so vile I won't repeat it here. Can't tell you the day of the week or where he dropped us off, but it happened. You don't forget. You never forget. And my experiences are nothing like what Dr. Ford experienced. Yes, #MeToo and yes, #BelieveSurvivors

Mr. Greenwood's story is laughable, especially given how much of a Trump supporter he's been on the pages of VT Digger. It's entirely consistent with his political outlook.

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

In all fairness... Who remembers what was said or allegedly done at a teen party some 20-30+ years ago. C'mon, this is really stretchingggg.

And btw, what's a 15 year old girl or boy doing at a party with 17 yr. olds?

So, he's doubting Dr. Ford's memory for lack of unimportant details of 33 years ago.

But can't remember whether he posted a vile sick disgusting tweet YESTERDAY.
