Re: “Burlington Expected to Update Public on CityPlace Next Week

"while we're at it: it's past time for TERM LIMITS for mayor."

It was well past time for term limits when Bernie served 4 terms, Clavelle served a gazillion, and Bob Who? served 2. Miro is stuck fixing some of the things that the long Prog Reign of Error didn't do: building virtually no housing, ignoring infrastructure, ignoring pension liabilities, and the list goes on.

Re: “Judge Allows Construction, Tree Removal to Proceed at Burlington's City Hall Park

"Researching the actual issues, you will find many reasonable arguments. They cannot be dismissed so easily, as you shall see."

Reasonable arguments? That cannot be dismissed easily? Really?

Are you a lawyer? Because it took the judge only a few hours and less than a page of text to throw you undemocratic old whiners out of court because your request for an injunction was legally baseless. And this was the second time your gang's attempt to halt the park renovation plan in court has been rejected. Your gang doesn't give a damn about majority democracy, public order, or whether your court challenges have a sound legal basis.

Re: “Judge Allows Construction, Tree Removal to Proceed at Burlington's City Hall Park

*Most of our attackers use pseudonyms*

And many of your supporters do as well. But I dont see you complaining about them.

*Seriously, folks, if you will go to the Park and see how this project goes, it may open your eyes.*

I am looking at the project right now and I am looking forward to City Hall Dump being renovated, and I know lots of people who want the dump renovated. It is arrogant for you to suggest that you and your band of aging hippie obstructionists have superior insight and that those of us who want the park upgraded dont *have our eyes open.

Re: “Despite Lawsuit, Burlington Preps City Hall Park for Construction

*Leas is concerned that . . . Burlingtons historic park could be irreparably damaged.*

Translation: Leas and the usual gang of aging hippie obstructionists don*t want any changes to the run down eyesore that theyre used to.

Re: “'Did You Just Swear At Me?' Bodycam Captured Violent Encounter With Burlington Cop

What is it about Kilburn being disruptive at a hospital, illegally being in an emergency ambulance spot, refusing to leave it, and then smartmouthing and assaulting law enforcement, that you don*t get. If your mother*s emergency treatment was delayed and she suffered as a result of the ambulance not being able to get her into the hospital fast enough, youd be suing the hospital and blaming the police for not removing Kilburn fast enough.

And you have no evidence that the hospital staff was being tyrants. In fact, if you watch the entire video you clearly see Kilburn being a disruptive jerk from the beginning. He*s not at a bar. Hes at a hospital, where you dont have the right to be loud and disruptive.

The man wasnt leaving. He was in an emergency vehicle spot. He was being a jerk.

Re: “Stickin' to His Guns? The NRA Helped Elect Bernie Sanders to Congress. Now He's Telling a Different Story.

"@knowyourassumption: You concede that politicians are ultimately statist thugs, but evidence support for 'gun control' all the same? Your cognitive disonance is noted."

First, nice try, but I never said anything like "all politicians are ultimately statist thugs." What I said is that Bernie and Trump are hypocrites and liars, and many of their followers are blindly loyal and don't want to hear anything critical of their idols. That is a far cry from saying "all politicians are ultimately statist thugs."

Second, whether or not all politicians are "statist thugs," the idea that we're all gonna need assault rifles so we can rise up and overthrow "the gub'men" is silly.
