Re: “Griping Postal: Milton Residents Angry About Costs of Receiving Mail

Why doesn't the bill go to the sender? Seems odd to bill the receiver...
Don't pay it, mail it back to the post office and tell them to take it up with whomever sent it. I've sent stuff twice that didn't have the required postage, it came back both times???

Re: “Lisman's Group Accuses House Democrat of Solar Conflict

I would say his paycheck would act as evidence. Many utility companies have already stopped allowing net metering. If there is no net metering McCarthy is out of a job, by increasing the mandate on net metering that means there is more work for McCarthy. That's a pretty clear direct interest.
I think it's a great program and I'm glad the bill passed. But that doesn't change the fact that McCarthy should have recused himself.

Re: “Lisman's Group Accuses House Democrat of Solar Conflict

"We've got a citizen legislature," says McCarthy, who went to work for
SunCommon in July 2013. "Farmers vote on farm bills. Teachers vote on
education bills. We have a doctor who votes on health care bills. That's
part of what makes the state kind of special."
Um yeah I guess it's special when our legislature has zero inclination to follow the rules set forth in our consititution. You have to be a total retard to not realize that farmers should not vote on farm bills and that teachers should not vote on education bills.
For crying out loud even the morally devoid US Congressmen and women recuse themselves. It is just awe inspiring that a person thinks it's actually ok. We really really need to have some type of intelligence test and criteria that people have to meet before they can actually vote.

Re: “Cornwall Board Takes Aim at Vermont Gas Pipeline

Mary, it's great that you made a commitment to your wallets as well as the enviornment. You acted in a manner that you feel was in your best interest. Why not let others do the same?
Also I ask your preference, should IP burn tires, oil, coal or natural gas? Which would be your preference? And if VT gas does not supply IP do you think a NY based company will?
Here's my take, IP needs a cheap source of energy. Of their options natural gas is the best for the enviornment and for their wallets. If VT gas doesn't run a line some other company will.

Re: “On Paid Sick Leave, Top Vermont Dems Are Noncommittal

A sick worker is an unproductive worker, who only infects other workers who are then unproductive workers. As someone who generally leans to the right this is one Obama's proposal I would actually get behind. I don't need my colleagues get me sick only to spread it to my kids who then have to stay home from school. It's also funny they mention health connect... which would benefit from people staying home when they are sick.
The only question for me would be how to make sure it isn't being abused by employees who just want a day off...

There is more to life then money... especially when you have enough of it. What's a pellet furnace these days $15-20K?

Re: “Cornwall Board Takes Aim at Vermont Gas Pipeline

Yeah, lets hold up one of the cheapest forms of energy ... par for the course in this state. Anything that could help people's wallets is opposed.
I wish Vermont Gas would run a line up my street. Instead I'll continue to pay several thousand dollars in heating oil...
