Re: “24-Hour Handgun Waiting Period Clears Vermont House

Speaking of sanctuary cities... Not everyplace is as A$$ backwards as Vermont

Four Rhode Island towns have declared themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries in the last two weeks.

Four Rhode Island towns, Burrillville, Hopkinton, West Greenwich, and Foster, declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries in the past two weeks. Just two months ago, a similar policy was passed in 25 of New Mexicos 33 counties as they also adopted Second Amendment Sanctuary status. The New Mexico county sheriffs are under no obligation to enforce new gun controls passed by the Democrat-controlled state government

Re: “24-Hour Handgun Waiting Period Clears Vermont House

WHEN in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Natures God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.

WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of HappinessThat to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

In it's blatant disregard for our rights and our will, this government has gone beyond destructive. I hereby revoke my consent to any and all authority over me by any government officials.

Re: “Burlington Councilors Press del Pozo on Police Use of Force

@Martha Molpus
"We the people need a citizen review process for the BPD, INDEPENDENT of city control. Is that possible in Burlington?"

Is it possible? Not while "The People" continue to act like they need the consent of their public service employees to do it.

Don't ask for it, do it. You don't require their permission. Form a common law Grand Jury of 25 PEOPLE, who understand the difference between a Citizen of the Corporate United States and the free people of the several states. Nobody from the BAR Association, no 14th amendment citizens of the legislature. People of the constitutional republic. Any public official attempting to interfere with the business of a Grand Jury is subject to arrest and prosecution on numerous federal charges.

Re: “Activists Demand Burlington Fire Cops Involved in Violent Incidents

It boggles my mind that some, not all, as I will endeavor to not succumb to gross over generalization, some of the people descended from those who fought so hard to overcome segregation continue to put that cloak back on whenever it is convenient to them and segregate themselves by endlessly describing themselves by the degree of pigment in their skin and then ceaselessly complain that everyone else only sees them that way. Continuing to propagate that beast, again, mostly when its convenient but some just cant seem to form a sentence without their pigment level being part of it and have no concept of how alienating it is to everyone else.
Indeed propaganda specialist find it an exceptionally powerful tool to steer a conversation completely away from the initial subject and cultivate the bickering between others, drawing the attention completely away from its initial intention. Just look where this one has gone.
The police see only two colors, blue & not blue. I dont believe the actions of any of these cops were those of a racist. They were the actions of a psychotic completely lacking in moral character. Try to keep the focus people.

Re: “Tough Guy: Does Public Safety Commissioner Tom Anderson Speak for Phil Scott?

..."but at the end of the day we're just trying to keep people safe in Vermont."

The common good of a collective -- a race, a class, a state -- was the claim and justification of every tyranny ever established over men. Every major horror of history was committed in the name of an altruistic motive. Has any act of selfishness ever equaled the carnage perpetrated by disciples of altruism? Does the fault lie in men's hypocrisy or in the nature of the principle? The most dreadful butchers were the most sincere. They believed in the perfect society reached through the guillotine and the firing squad. Nobody questioned their right to murder since they were murdering for an altruistic purpose. It was accepted that man must be sacrificed for other men. Actors change, but the course of the tragedy remains the same. A humanitarian who starts with the tragedy remains the same. A humanitarian who starts with the declarations of love for mankind and ends with a sea of blood. It goes on and will go on so long as men believe that an action is good if it is unselfish. That permits the altruist to act and forces his victims to bear it. The leaders of collectivist movements ask nothing of themselves. But observe the results. - Ayn Rand

Re: “142-Room Hotel Proposed for Burlington YMCA Building

A stucco & glass rectilinear monolith built onto that beautiful old brick building with such great classic lines? That's ugly as sin! What the hell are these people thinking? You know, besides $ $ $ $ $ $ $... This architect should restrict his work to Florida and stay out of Vermont entirely.

Re: “Violence Caught on Camera Leads to Brutality Claims Against Burlington Cops

Charlie.

The Burlington PD polices the community by that communitys consent and that consent can & should be revoked.
It is fully within the rights of the people to do away with this heinous & corrupt failure of a government, in part or in its entirety. Fully within the rights of the people to tell these criminals that theyve dishonored their oath of office at every conceivable turn and that theyve lost the privilege of holding any office here. More than just being removed, they should be investigated and charged for crimes against the people & held to account for what theyve done.
When a government or any government agency becomes so corrupt and that corruption has festered and grown cancerous for so long, that it becomes the only way they know how to operate, there is no talking about it anymore. Its time to hit the hard reset button.
If a new police force was to be installed at any point, those police should not undergo any training by any state or federal police organization, that would only stamp out more above the law sociopaths.
