Re: “Bernie Sanders: Trump Should 'Think About Resigning'

All we are getting is Moore Trump a combination that is just outrageous and I consider an insult to all that the United States stands for and fights for. Just outrageous , actually the country has all ready SHUT DOWN its moral compass.

Re: “A Year After Al Franken's Visit, Vermont Dems React to His Scandal

So far Franken has no problems with me ( Who knows what comes next) 2 weeks playing around with a comedian & a showgirl and they think the picture of a comedian acting for the camera is forced sex is nuts. In my lifetime 78 years, I have seen this innocent scene played out plenty of times. This is not my definition of sexual harassment. this is an overreaction ( all publicity is good) when you are an entertainer. Some could consider it bad taste but we all know female abuse when we see it .This is not it.

Re: “Walters: Scott Ponders New 'Everyday Jobs Tour'

I would like to see Gov. Scott spending time on the BIKE LANES ( WE DO NOT HAVE ) and seeing firsthand what risks Vermont bikers take. Imagine the increase in tourism we could have if we invested in actual bike lanes instead of narrow dirt filled paved shoulders. We are not saving money when we rebuild roads without real safe bike lanes especially in the many parts of the state that the only real industry is tourism. I have heard talk about this for 40 years but see very little actually being done.

Re: “Gubernatorial Candidates Spar Over Taxes, Guns at Final Debate

Scott has been in office 17 years , I do not think we want life time elected officials.

Re: “Minter v. Scott: The Race is On

Every candidates priority has to be ideas that bring more income to Vermont. Yes cutting cost is important but the real opportunity is increasing the revenue of the state and citizens. Hopefully all these potential state leaders make raising all income the priority.

Re: “Financial Firm to Pay Vermont $5.95 Million in Jay Peak Case

Outrageous for many reasons the whole case is based on FRAUD & actual stealing of investors funds . This case calls for jail time as well as fines the fact that the state settled for any less is amazing.

Re: “Smoked: Why the Pot Legalization Bill Failed

The vote should be considered as a support for marijuana . But for sure it is a vote of illegal undergound and non taxed transactions. Nothing changed except the industry is still in the hands of the underground.
