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

Always interesting to see the comments on a Bernie story in 7days
Where do the Bernie haters come from on this site I doubt many are voters in VT.
At least two commenters so far bringing up Bernies nearly 50 year old essay on rape. Please. nice try but try for a more recent example - how about something in the last generation.
I am surprised some of you Bernie haters havent found a way to start moaning about his lakefront weekend place your favorite topic. As if a man who has made well over 100K a year for nearly 30 years should not be able to afford a 600K weekend house.
I am sure some hater can find a way to combine the 50 year old rape essay + jane's B College deal and the lake front house - please try - you can do it.
What you haters cant get over is that Bernie has more integrity in his left nut than trump and his thieving criminal family combined.

Re: “Carina Driscoll, Bernie Sanders' Stepdaughter, Considering a Run for Burlington Mayor

She would have to be better than the developer in-chief mayor
Mayor developer has been an unmitigated disaster for Burlington
His damage will be hard to undo
His priorities are for the rich, the connected and especially real estate developers
He has been enabled by the likes of the dinosaur fake progressive councilor lifers like jane k
He must go but unfortunately his out of scale behemoth mall give away and the condos on the church waterfront land and the Burlington telecom deal will all out last him and be his lastly terrible legacy

Re: “Filipino Cuisine Comes to St. Johnsbury

i give this place six months to a year
if its open next Oct it would surprise me
st j is where restaurants go to die
the mexican place - good example - got all sorts of great press -
decent prices, decent enough food - and
a cuisine Americans are familiar with and which is successful all over the country -
what happened ? it bit the dust in less than a year -
this place - no chance -
i checked out the menu the other day when i passed by - i think just about every dish had pork in it
there might have been one or two that were maybe vegetarian
i am doubtful this place makes it
there is not enough critical mass in that area to support this place -

Re: “Trump-Bashing, Romney-Advising Political Operative Stuart Stevens Finds Himself in Vermont

way too long and not interesting enough - why wasn't this edited down?
who really cares this much about some political consultant in vermont??
better would have been more on the terrible, lousy, no good, crummy folks this dude helped put into office -
just cause trump hates him is not enough of a reason to like this scum bag
and paul - you should pay some writer's fine for using "abode" as a verb - awful - just dreadful - (he abodes in NH . . .) - what were you thinking?? does 7 days employ editors ?? it seems not

Re: “Notorious Transient Accused of Assaulting Burlington Business Owner

three words - Lock him up.
let this drain on society dry up in prison
for a nice long time -
i bet that would make him pretty unhappy - and do his liver a favor
it boggles my mind that he can be arrested 117 times and have 31 convictions
and he then assaults someone and gets released ! again
mental illness, alcoholism - who cares
he should not be on the street
there should be some punishment or consequences for his actions
releasing him sends a message that there are zero consequences to actions

Re: “Leahys in Love: A Senator and His Spouse Weather Cancer

I thought this was perhaps the weakest FG column Walters has done.
Why did 7 days think a full page of their political column devoted to the Ls marriage and MLs 14 year old cancer diagnosis was newsworthy.
Really, who cares? Or who cares that much? A full page? BORING! What is the relevance? Maybe this belonged in the 7 days love issue in February. This is suppose to be where you go for the weekly CURRENT VT political news. I kept thinking why is he writing this long long piece on these two and their relationship and her cancer scare that is over a decade in the past???
I suppose late August is a very slow news period. Question for 7 Days: Where was his editor on this? The editor should have called BS on this and told Walters to hack this down or find something relevant to write about.
