Re: “Middlebury College Cancels Forum Featuring Conservative Polish Leader

The US constitution guarantees freedom of speech. That means freedom to discuss topics that may be opposed to your own set of beliefs. That is one of the main tenets of our freedom and one that is being ignored more and more.
So who gets to decide what is ok and what is not ok? Just because the opinions differ, they have as much right to express them as you do yours. I find the current trend to silence opposing views by groups like this similar to the way other countries like China now and Germany in the 30s shaped public opinion and people were not allowed to make up their own minds.

Re: “Middlebury College Bristles Over Planned Forum Featuring Polish Conservative

Oh my, the poor psyches of the students who do not want to tolerate any opinion other than their own. One of the basic tenets of our democracy is the ability for different points of view to be allowed. Unfortunately we now have a younger generation who thinks they are right and there is no need to listen to any other opinion that may disagree with their own. I have always tried to listen to different sides of issues and make up my own mind, not just bury my head in the sand and ignore anything that is different. I see the professors and politicians promoting this one sided approach as a means to solidify their opinions as the right ones

Re: “Sanders Takes On General Motors Near Shuttered Chevy Plant in Ohio

Bernie how about you live up to your promise and release those tax returns. If you do not then it is just another example of your hypocrisy

Re: “Man's Death Following Fight With Burlington Cop Ruled Homicide

It is so easy for the arm chair quarterbacks to determine right and wrong actions, but how many have been in a situation where things escalated and a reaction was needed?
It is a scary situation and depending on the action you may decide you need to protect yourself and meet the actions with similar reactions.

Re: “Mueller Summary Insufficient, Says Vermont Congressional Delegation

knowyouras...
Do not try to find more excuses and try to say the reason so many do not like Hillary is because of misogyny it is because of the way she lied about Bengazi, how she acted like she was the heir to the presidency, how she ignored the electoral college process, how she clearly violated security with her own email server and then made it sound like it was no big deal. She lost the popular vote in over 50% of the states so the electoral college did what it was supposed to, allow for those states to be heard over the 5 or 6 main population centers.

Re: “Mueller Summary Insufficient, Says Vermont Congressional Delegation

Of course after 2 years with no charges, how can it be true? Maybe Bernie and others need to come to grips with the fact that there was not collusion or it just was fabricated to explain why Hillary lost and then was a very ungracious loser.

As for the popular vote issue, the electoral college was a smart addition our founding fathers added and the fact Hillary and her team did not understand it or dismissed it just shows how her hubris showed

Re: “Critics Say Gov's 'Piddly' Electric Car Plan Can't Go the Distance

Perhaps when the economy started to pick up, people were more concerned with righting their own finances than spending a lot more for electric vehicles. EVs make sense in Chittenden County but when you get outside of Chittenden County, people do not have the extra income to buy more expensive cars, they are buying used vehicles and driving 25 to 30 miles to work. Keep making it more expensive to live and see what will happen..
