Re: “Protest Planned at Franklin Graham Event in Essex Junction

This man alleges he's a Christian. Given that Jesus allegedly hung out with bad guys, prostitutes, and other lowlifes, maybe Graham could take some lessons on what his "savior" actually stood for. Instead he touts some Old Testament weirdness and bigotry while taking in millions of dollars. I recall something about heaven, rich men and the eye of a needle. Hmmmm.

Re: “Three Arrested After Climate Protest Halts Vermont House Action

Check your privilege at the door. The climate catastrophe is real and present. The others are not.

Re: “Three Arrested After Climate Protest Halts Vermont House Action

The protest was timely and urgent. Our elected officials can't even agree on financing the cleanup of our bodies of water. This is just a small piece of the environmental catastrophe we are facing and our legislature is bogged down in turf wars. When will they address the big issues of pollution from vehicles and animal agriculture? Probably not until it way too late. We have less than 12 years to fix our bad habits, and the legislature is turtle slow in addressing the issue.

Re: “24-Hour Handgun Waiting Period Clears Vermont House

Hey, Doom, maybe they were disliking the editorial comment and not the Declaration. Ya know, if you read the whole post, there's an addendum to the Founders' words.

Re: “As Legislature Winds Down, Clean Water Funding Remains Murky

Normally, I'm a bigger fan of the Senate than the House. But now I've got to say that the Senate is falling down on the job. We need clean water, and we needed it yesterday. Water, after all, is life. And the life-blood of our tourism industry. They should take their work on this issue a little more seriously.

Re: “Three Women Sue Burlington Telecom for Sex Discrimination

Maybe Miro and his cronies should listen to the women. This is the tale many women tell, but they aren't heard. And heaven forbid that women actually hold important positions in business. Makes it harder to screw them, but looks like Barraclough has it all figured out

Re: “24-Hour Handgun Waiting Period Clears Vermont House

Love the gun fanatics' comments. Every woman I know would rather go to a safer place than shoot the man they may still love. These victims are people, not some monolithic thing, and they have enough problems without adding a gun to the mix. Don't know when a gun ever has solved a problem, rather than creating more.
