Re: “Hosts Are Wary of Proposed Burlington Regs on Airbnb-Type Rentals

Surprise, surprise, surprise, the hospitality industry, slum lords and their political toads want to crack down on those nasty free market capitalists. The nerve of them to try and earn money on their investments!

Where is Bernie when we need a strong socialist mayor to whip a little eminent domain on these folks and turn private property into subsidized housing?

Re: “Can You Hear Us Now? 5G Tech Is Spooking Some Vermonters — Before It's Even Here

While the science community has yet to determine the harmful effects of RF emissions from 5G, it doesnt mean that the average Vermonter should not take protective actions.

Over the years the Tin Foil Hat and pasta caldron has widely been proposed, however, this not a good solution as Aluminum Foil is not an effective shield against electromagnet forces, lacks the material properties for longevity of a clothing product and has yet to be deemed fashionable.

Copper, however, is widely used by top secret agencies and corporations for foiling (pardon the pun) electromagnetic eves dropping. This all-natural element is readily available at your local scrap yard, highly malleable and, unlike lead, far safer to handle.

Common Lamp wire is the best as it is comprised of very small diameter copper strands that mimic the knittability of a good heavy wool. Any good knitter can easily crank out hats in all the popular fashions. Skull caps, traditional snowboarder caps with the flappy ears, feminist pussy ear hats, kippot, cat in the hat style, the possibilities are endless. Over time Copper will take on a lovely green patina or you can polish it regularly to a mirror like finish.

I see the production of copper knitted hats as a win win for Vermont! It would be truly unique and fitting with our character. It promotes recycling and does so in a manner that has minimal impact on the energy consumption in the recycling process. Its a perfect job fit for home workers or those looking to augment their minimum wage incomes.

While I can understand how the progressive party is torn with how to address the 5G issue they certainly should be able to get behind a grant or two to help fund the reclamation & redistribution of discarded lamp wire.

Re: “Climate Strikers Talk Climate Anxiety and Their Future

I'm curious how the "Future Generation" will handle a bunch of climate protestors laying down in the streets blocking their entrance to school on finals day? Or to their Graduation? Or Prom?

How many will take "The Pledge" to boycott riding of all diesel school busses?

Re: “UVM Apologizes for a Eugenics Survey That Ended in 1936

Perhaps we could add The Eagles "Get Over It" playing in the background as a sound track.

Re: “Middlebury College Cancels Forum Featuring Conservative Polish Leader

Perhaps for graduation instead of caps and gowns all the kiddies can wear brown shirts with red sashes.

Re: “Walters: Leahy Elicits Striking Answer From Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford

Politics aside - but the only lady to believe in this cases like this is "Lady Liberty".

Anything else is nothing but pure speculation and in this case a blatant transparent witch hunt.

Perhaps Leahy and Sanders should re-read "To Kill A Mocking Bird"

Trump sucks and so to they.
