A junkie died and now the family is trying to blame everyone but the junkie. Why is this not a surprise?

Re: “Supreme Court Orders New Trial for Former Senator Norm McAllister

So, even in Vermont rape is perfectly ok, encouraged even if youre a lawmaker or wealthy and the victim is poor. This is another disgusting opinion from our disgusting Supreme Court. The state shouldnt bother retrying old Norm, the Vermont Supreme Court will never, ever let a conviction stand. All Vermonters should be ashamed.

Re: “Scott, Zuckerman and Fellow Incumbents Dominate Vermont Public Media Poll

Ah well, its not surprising that youd consider the truth as being unhinged.

Anyone who votes Republican is certainly no better than turn-a-blind-eye pre-WWII Germans. In case you didnt notice, Neo-Fascism has taken over US Government and become the guiding philosophy of American conservatives.

You can certainly try to spin Scott as a moderate but the truth is, he moderates only to get elected. He, Gibbs and the rest of his flying monkeys on the 5th floor would have Vermont politics looking a lot like Texas if they thought they could get away with it.

And really, to compare Scott to Howard Dean is low, even for you.

Re: “Scott, Zuckerman and Fellow Incumbents Dominate Vermont Public Media Poll

Scott is just another right wing conservative who, like all conservatives, is driven by nothing but hate and greed. The Vermont Democrats who vote for him are either just stupid and believe the false narrative that he has put forth, painting himself as a moderate or they just dont care. These are the same type of people who claimed not to know as the Nazis exterminated millions.

Re: “Iconic Tech Firm MyWebGrocer to Be Bought by Florida Company

It would be interesting to know how much, if any, of Vermont taxpayers money went to this company over the years either through tax breaks or small business development incentives.
As for there being no planned job losses, well thats more than likely a lie. These Vermont companies always sell out and always state that there will be no job losses but of course, there always are.
This sale has noting to do with serving customers better and has everything to do with making a buck. Why do they feel the need to lie about it?

Re: “Walters: Scott, Hallquist Draw Clear Contrasts in Second Debate

He asserted that boosting the economy will bring organic wage growth instead of an "artificial" boost in the minimum wage.

Does Scott really believe this nonsense? Corporate profits continue to hit record highs as they have for years but wages remain stagnant for the vast majority of people. Business puts those profits only in the pockets of their shareholders and executives, not their workforce. Scott is being disengenuous at best.

That being said, I dont believe that a $30,000+ per annum minimum wage is reasonable or warranted but what were doing now isnt working and simply pretending that wages will increase equitably with a stronger economy is just absurd.

Scott is just trying to sell more extreme right-wing pablum in the hopes that well buy it.

Re: “Backseat Driver? In Gov. Phil Scott's Administration, Chief of Staff Jason Gibbs Takes the Wheel

This shouldnt come as a surprise. Gov.
Gibbs is a nasty, mean spirited, extreme right-wing political operative who will lie, cheat, and manipulate everyone in order to push an extreme right-wing agenda. Hes known for this and thats why Gov. Scott hired him. Hes smarter and meaner than Scott but they both have the same agenda. This facade that Scott has put up as a nice, affable, centrist kind of guy is just fake. He is, like all conservatives, driven only by hate and greed.
