Re: “Vermont's Last Dairy Farmer-Lawmaker Is Selling His Cows

Very good article.
I concur with Walter Moses in that the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, by direction from legislature, has shifted emphasis from supporting the industry to that of the harsh regulator of the myriad of laws and environmental mandates that that legislature spews out each year - Rodney Graham and his family made a good run and did their best to work with a system that all but guaranteed his demise.
The Global Climate Change hoax will not stop at agriculture as it promises to decimate the rural economy.

Re: “As Impeachment Hearings Wrap, Welch Says Trump 'Betrayed' Oath of Office

Peter Welch is thoroughly partisan, totally leftist and hopelessly entrenched in Washington D.C. swamp politics. What has become of Democrat party?

Re: “Good News? Evangelicals Are 'Planting' Dozens of Churches in Vermont's Rocky Soil

Revival has come to New England in the past and with it a wonderful shift in cultural norms. Revival comes to individuals and in a corporate manner - Truly, the only hope for mankind is Jesus Christ, Him crucified and risen again.

Re: “Vermont Youths Join Massive Global Climate Protests

To attribute this well organized, centrally orchestrated and nation-wide display to students is absurd.

Re: “What Are Those New 'Trees' Being Planted in Fields Across Vermont?

As wonderful as it sounds hemp is destined to be the next agricultural poster child for failure. UVM, Vermont Dept. of Ag & USDA are grasping at every straw to avoid the elephant in the room which is the dismal state of American agriculture.

Re: “High THC Cannabis Found at Farm Linked to Champlain Valley Dispensary

The publics hunger for a high and the potential profits that can be realized open the door to all kinds of mischief, I predict that there will many more incidents of shenanigans as the state of Vermont continues down this dark path.

Re: “Housing Advocates Say State Back-Rent Payments Could Halve Eviction Rate

When the state is tough on landlords there are several unintended consequences
1. Legal requirements will drive up rent as landlords experience the savvy renters who know how to get "free" rent for months at a time.
2. After a terrible experience we sold one of our rental units - prior to our experience this was an affordable and well kept home. No rent and in the end the house was trashed - even though we provided trash removal (curb side removal) I made 5 trips to the landfill with a pickup and a trailer - bags and bags of trash. There were no arguments and the tenant was not threatened beyond the fact that she was leaving me with no choice but eviction.

Fewer rental options and higher prices - landlords will build into their rent the cost of eviction and clean up.
