Re: “Vice President Mike Pence Comes to Vermont, Gets the Finger

When a politician who happens to be a piece of human excrement takes a swim in Vermont, does that cause a Blue Green Algae outbreak?

Re: “Police: Essex Man Used Racial Slurs, Waved Pistol at Store Clerk

Sorry, Copper. I don't care what he did in high school...if he pulled a loaded gun and stuck it in another person's face, he deserves to be in jail for a very long time Frankly, 6 years probably isn't enough.

Those of us that own firearms and use them in a responsible manner need to be at the forefront of pushing for stiffer penalties for those abusing other's rights because they can't act responsibly. I want to continue to be able to own a rifle for hunting season, and d-bags like this are the ones threatening that right, not lawmakers pushing for gun control measures in response to morons like Sheldon. We should be pushing the state to throw the book at this guy.

This a-hole ought to lose the right to own a gun permanently because of this incident, but the NRA won't be having it

Re: “UVM Medical Center Nurses to Return to Work Saturday

The hospital can afford to do it, Gi, because they're gouging the rest of us. To heck with increasing costs...how about cutting them so that the government doesn't need to mandate heath coverage to ensure that it can fund essential programs? A lot of non-healthcare folks have to work overtime just to afford health care, and they're going to have to work more overtime if costs go up.

Re: “Nurses Picket as Strike Starts at UVM Medical Center

The US average monthly health insurance premium is 321 dollars for an individual. That's about 3850 per year. For most individuals, this is far more than what they actually spend on healthcare. If this potential raise is going to increase the cost of my healthcare even more, just hire their replacements full time and let the striking nurses find other work. Healthcare costs are already beyond ridiculous.

Re: “Contract Talks Yield No Breakthrough for Nurses, UVM Medical Center

I guess health care costs aren't ridiculous enough already...

I'm all for paying these people more once the government does something to get healthcare costs under control, but it's already ridiculous. Jacking up the cost of these employees with a 24% raise is just going to ensure even less people can actually afford their services. Why don't we focus on prescription drug costs first, and then work on wages?

Re: “Montpeculiar: A Message of 'Anal Sex' in Front of the Statehouse

This isn't fake news, it just isn't news at all.
