Re: “Vermont Democrats Counter Scott With Mandatory Paid Leave Plan

Phil Scott's plan making it "voluntary" guarantees that the people most in need of this benefit will never see it. Why am I not surprised? Thankfully, the legislature is no longer constrained by his heartless vetoes.

Re: “Walters: Lyons, Benning Named Senate Committee Chairs

Doug Hoffer is right, but we should add planes as a large contributor to atmospheric disruption.

Re: “In Second Inaugural Address, Scott Vows to Grow Vermont's Workforce

When Phil Scott says he'll work with the legislature (which he has shown little inclination to do in the past) he might also want to try to work with his Lt Gov better too. He has a tendency to not listen to his opponents, a deafness that didn't exist when he was a senator. I suspect I know the cause, as do many others.

Re: “Right to Fight: Paco DeFrancis Is Burlington's Sole Republican City Council Candidate

Paco's regular nastiness on-line combined with his arrogance will likely not stand him in good stead in this race. So sad!

Re: “Walters: Baruth to Propose Waiting Period for Gun Purchases

All the gun fanatics are crying about their rights again. Give it a rest. If you really, really want another gun, you can wait a mere 48 hours to get one. With proper planning you will have your gun for hunting or whatever purpose you have for it. If it saves one life, it is a good piece of legislation. People whining about personal responsibility have no conception of the state of mind of a suicidal person. Two deaths in the last five years that we know of could have been prevented with such a law, and I firmly believe that is a valid public policy. I applaud the senator from Chittenden County for understanig this.

Re: “A Single Family Remakes the Image of South Woodstock

The haves have once again created a special place where the only have-nots who get to play are long time friends and buddies. I doubt they would welcome unknown have-nots to come join in their revelries. It's a shame since many poor artists and writers would love to find shelter in such a place for a few weeks or months of quiet work without the worry of finding housing and heat. If they were truly the haven they say they are trying to create, they might find they could learn some interesting things from have-nots.

Re: “Vermont Public Utility Commission Slams Proposal to 'Raid' Funding

Another Scott appointee running roughshod over stakeholders under her operation. Why am I not surprised? Have to do better next time? Why not revisit the one she screwed up?
