Re: “Stickin' to His Guns? The NRA Helped Elect Bernie Sanders to Congress. Now He's Telling a Different Story.

This is news? Tell us something we dont know... and just about everybody in Vermont (with the exception of the quite young and the oblivious) already knew all of this. My, how the standards of journalism have fallen at Seven Days. Peter Freyne, who fully covered all this at the time, must be spinning in his grave. Shame on you Paula and Pam.

Re: “South Burlington Council Wanted a Say in Burlington Zoning Change

I guess South Burlington should have thought of things like that before they succeeded from Burlington. Sorry, SoBummers, you dont get a say in what Burlington decides to do, because you chose to give up your say in the affairs of Burlington. You should have thought to buy the airport, too, back then, but you were too busy whipping around Confederate flags and making your high schools mascot a traitorous Confederate Army colonel. The people of South Burlington have no one else but themselves to blame for this. Tough nuggets, Rebels.

Re: “Burlington's Magnolia Bistro Shuts Down

What goes around comes around. Businesses addicted to low-wage jobs should die. Good riddance. (ps -did anyone else laugh out loud at the irony of an alcohol purveyor decrying addiction?)

Re: “UVM Medical Center Seeks to Hire Hundreds in Advance of Strike

Any place that accommodates these scabs had best be prepared for protests and pickets on their doorsteps. I wonder how the rest of their guests will feel about that. Image how the Yelp, Travelocity, and other reviews will look afterwards. Those businesses have to stay here after the scabs go, and the members of the community will remember which side these hotels and restaurants are on. Count on it.

Re: “UVM Medical Center Nurses Serve Strike Notice

No, David Brizendine, I'm talking about the 1.4 BILLION dollars in revenue that flows through the hospital every years, making it one of the 50 biggest hospitals in the nation by revenue. (hard to believe, I know, but it's true.) I'm guessing you have zero understanding of how hospital finances work, including "days cash on hand," the real measure of how much money UVMed, or any hospital, really has. You might want to learn something about healthcare finance before you open your mouth and confirm your ignorance again, sir.

Re: “UVM Medical Center Seeks to Hire Hundreds in Advance of Strike

Anyone who trusts their healthcare to a bunch of scab nurses who can't get regular jobs is out of their mind. Don't trust your mother's or child's healthcare to these mercenaries who truly are in it only for the money. If you've ever experienced a strike you already know to cancel your healthcare appointments for July 12th and 13th NOW! UVMed can protest all they want, but the simple fact of the matter is that care in the hospital will be both sub-standard and unsafe on those days. Don't be a fool; cancel your July appointments today!
