Re: “ACLU Sues to Protect Homeless Encampments in Burlington

Miro Weinberger wants Burlington to become a "Sanctuary City" for immigrants. (because there's incentives to be had...) but for the citizens of Vermont, not so much.

Re: “Vermont Huts Association Launches Statewide System of Trailside Cabins

"The one thing that I was most surprised about, though: lack of backcountry accommodations.

That is, by definition, what makes it the "backcountry". And those of us who like such places do have "accommodations", typically I use a tent.

Re: “Trump-Bashing, Romney-Advising Political Operative Stuart Stevens Finds Himself in Vermont

Isay,

Agreeing with most of what you say, there is no fixing the political parties... They are, definitively, what is the most broken with our entire political system.

As for the clown this article is about... the entire thing could have been summed up with "Master immoral spindoctor moves to Vermont.

Re: “Former Burlington Cop Charged With Lying About Drug Bust

Yet another lying disgrace to the badge. Of course, with their opportunity for overtime, promotions and pay scale all being "performance based", (more busts = higher pay), this problem isn't going away any time soon.

Re: “Million-Dollar Question: How Much Should Nonprofit Hospital CEOs Earn?

Angela Allard
So, how about we relieve their strain and let them see their families. For those salaries we can divide up that money and hire seven more people to do that same work.
For the joker making over two million, we could hire 20 people at 100K/year to do his job and more.

Re: “Million-Dollar Question: How Much Should Nonprofit Hospital CEOs Earn?

I'm not sure how this "Nonprofit" stuff works really, but those numbers sound pretty darn profitable to me... For the right people of course.

Re: “Papers, Please: The Feds Reach Deeper Into Vermont

This is seriously disturbing, on so many levels. The "Patriot Act" needs to be called out for the blatant treason that it is, it's drafter's & supporters put on trial and the federal government put back on a leash.

White River Junction will become a black hole for me and my family. I will no longer do business in that area at all and will avoid the area entirely. How long before someone is shot & killed by these federal enforcers because they reached for their phone too fast? Maybe it's time to move deeper into the midsection of the country, where this kind of federal incursion isn't allowed. I'm not going to live in a place that resembles cold war Soviet Russia & Nazi Germany.

The most despicable part about it is, it's all about the cash. Federal "security" & all it's equipment & funding is big business these days.

"But area residents and travelers should get used to it." - No, they should push back and INSIST it stops, immediately.
