Re: “Seriously: Who's Driving This Thing?

Bryan wants you to believe that you only have two choices, and he wants you to vote early before you find out about your other choices. You have 4 more choices of candidates for Governor. AS you all may know in your heart there are more issues to face than simply broadband and solar and keeping VT taxes low, we have crimes against the people and against humanity going on in our name by governments of both parties. Vermonters should be seeing all the candidates debate against one another, and VERMONTERS should be the ones to make the choice. VERMONTERS are far better suited to make that choice than the press. DOES seven days think Vermonters are too stupid to choose between more than 2, and have they decided the elections pretty much in advance? Voters may want to take the policy suggestion from one and have the candidate they vote for employ it. Vermonters may want a leader who will create a new paradigm, like myself. Our democracy is in more danger every time another reporter suggests you are only have the choice between 2 when you really have 6 to choose from. Somehow, the press has decided that their freedom gives them the right or responsibility to end your freedom of choice, that their freedoms should be used to maintain the two party system by censoring a fair competition. The same two party system that mass incarcerates its people and separates children from families and drops 144 bombs a day on 7 countries we aren't at war with. Are these parties going to stop the rat race and let us get to work on climate change? Ask yourself- could there be another choice that may lead you to a new paradigm, a choice that 7 days covers up? You can't make a choice you don't know exists. When 7 days assumes you don't need to see a fair and open democratic coverage process with all 6 of your choices, they undermine democracy. You may have a better choice that you don't know about, a choice that will lead Vermont to higher moral ground. empeyton.com

Re: “Bernie Sanders Declines Democratic Senatorial Nomination

If he turned down the nomination shouldn't the other person running as a dem get it?

Re: “Union Slams Scott Administration Over Prescription Drug Changes

Maybe readers should begin to look at the State for what it is, an Incorporated For Profit enterprise.

Re: “Vermont Hemp Company Responds to ‘Unfounded’ Lawsuit

Thank you Nate I do appreciate the edification on the point of return should the foreclosure sale reap more than the minor amount of debt. But is not the intrinsic value of happiness and stability of keeping a family on their farm worth more than the dollars that are made up in cycler space to begin with? And while I appreciate the 'fairness' of the bank ( tongue in cheek here), Nate, can you address the bigger issue of the lack of consideration, or fair vale that is contributed by the bank. The Bank has, in my mind by moral law, no business making demands of interest that are not in circulation to begin with!!! The bank puts the amount of the loan into common circulation, as do all the ether banks with all their other loans, but none of them are putting the amount they demand in interest into circulation to begin with. This is why and how capitalism ( which it really is instead a faulty monetary design) has created chaos, war, planetary detraction and laid waste to an alive planet that would otherwise give us an abundance, heal us and guide us. A planet that gives us cannabis. Here we have a Joel Bedard, and true my experience of him has been as others have had, one that is not very evolved in his person, one who puts the love of money above the love of neighbor. Yet, the conversation needs to go deeper, It needs to go to a place of where and when did we allow the the enforced competition and the deceitful scarcity of cash from a monetary system that is filled with made up numbers!!!????

Re: “Vermont Hemp Company Responds to ‘Unfounded’ Lawsuit

While Joel Bedard mistakenly pursued the love of money over the love of neighbor ( had he dug deep and paid her due, regardless of the sale of the crop he would have earned a life long loyalty that would repay itself in many times the value of his 35 K ( later 45 K), however, the real villain is yet unnamed. For the value of an employees half a day labor and 12 computer generated mailings each year, perhaps in total $300, to be truly generous, the bank has defrauded the farmer out of 2.5 times the value of the land purchase. This is fraud, legalized to be clear, but fraud nonetheless. IN legal terms that bank has not offered any consideration for their part of the deal, in other words they have done nothing of value to deserve the farm. Certainly the legalized fraud continues in that the farmer certainly has paid ( I don't know the figures but no doubt for some substantial time) a substantial amount already. That the bank has done nothing of value comparatively is legally allowed to theive the farm and resell it without a nickel of compensation to the farmer for the value already paid is the criminal treason of our times. The farmer could be short the very last payment on the mortgage and that bank would steal the entire property even after its received 99% of the terms. Joel is befuddled in his heart, but lets be real with who is doing the harms.

Re: “Lawsuit: Vermont Hemp Company Founder Lifted Cannabis Crop

We at Hempfully Green avoid Bedard, after finding out he isn't out for the gopd of all. He has boasted to me how his wife is an attorney, makes a lot of money...... Looks like they both don't mind screwing people over in a rush to be Burlington's king of the crop.

Re: “Vermont School Districts Must Save $13 Million Under Legislature’s Compromise

Government is the best employer in this state! They just have to keep getting more creative and inflating their fees, taxes and regulations to pay for this awesome employer! They will tell you what to do and take your money right out of your wallet to do it.
