Re: “Walters: Ehlers Dances Around Gun Restrictions

As usual, Ehlers is talking out of both sides of his mouth. Didnt we all have enough of this dishonest doublespeak during Scummy Shummys administration? Doesnt Vermont want someone who doesnt lie every time they open their mouth?

Re: “Walters: Sanders' Campaign Has $7.6 Million in Cash

These are interesting comments. On the one hand, you have Philo for whom Sanders can do no wrong. I'm pretty confident that Sanders could murder a small child on Main Street in broad daylight and Philo would find a justification for it. On the other hand you have Ms. Boutin who will assign criminal motives to everything that Sanders does. Of course, the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Sanders is no different most other politicians - not a saint or the Antichrist but a somewhat dishonest, and extremely hypocritical self promoter more interested in promoting himself than in actually coming up with realistic solutions for the problems facing his constituents.

Re: “Leahy: Trump's Supreme Court Pick 'More Than Frightening'

Kavanaugh is, like the rest of the conservatives on the court, a neo-Fascist. He and the extreme right justices are little more than highly educated skinheads in black robes intent on pushing the far rights agenda no matter the cost or how many people get hurt. They are driven, not by reasonable constitutional interpretation but by hate and greed, to support a platform that places corporate interests above all else, that espouses racism, sexism, homophobia and xenophobia and one that will ensure a never ending extreme-right congressional majority by rulings of tortured legal logic that allow unfettered cash donations to far right candidates, upholding partisan gerrymandering in favor of the far right and diluting or eliminating all election law that protect the voting rights of minority voters. These are not honorable men intent on preserving justice in the United States, they are men for whom honesty and integrity take a back seat to their own, extreme personal political agendas. Justice for all is an ideal that is now dead in these (dis)United States and the myth of an independent judiciary has been shattered for good.

Re: “Utah Millionaire Abandons Plan for Futuristic Community in Vermont

Good riddance! The last thing Vermont needs is an extreme right-wing cult with 20k members.

Re: “Walters: Scott, Legislature Still Talking Past Each Other

Everything the Scott administration does is dishonest and in bad faith. Its too bad that Ms. Young has become just another one of his flying monkeys as she used to be trusted and respected on both sides of the aisle. Everyone now understands that she is, along with the rest of the vile people in this administration, just interested in playing extreme right wing partisan politics. Its too bad. After Scummy Shummy people were hoping for better.

Re: “Scott Vetoes Vermont Budget as July 1 Shutdown Looms

If people want to put the breaks on rising property taxes they need to stop voting for ever expanding and absurd school budgets. This is so typical, people cant vote fast enough for any expenditure that is linked to school or "the children" but then they don't like it when they have to pay the price for those votes.

I totally agree with the legislature on this one, but they are fighting a losing battle. Stupid people believe that their should be no consequences for their votes and Scott is more than willing to shut the government down to give that to them and the legislature will be blamed for the shut down. Phil Scott is a vile human being but he has the upper hand in this battle.

Re: “Walters: Vermont Senate Fast-Tracks Budget Bill

Take back Vermont from whom Donna? The majority who voted for the liberals that you hate so much? Seriously? The low percentage of Republicans elected in the state would indicate that you and your other hate-filled, extreme right wing buddies that want to take back Vermont are just out of luck and if its going to make you so constantly apoplectic perhaps its time to migrate to Alabama or someplace that is politically more in tune with your backward hate filled beliefs.
