Re: “Max Tracy, Burlington's Most Outspoken Prog, Pulls No Punches

You can't be a socialist and also be for the working class.

I look forward to your dislikes.

Re: “Burlington Activist Takes Aim at 'White Supremacist' Mural

I guess the Marginalized Coalition of Victims has arrived to be embarrassingly histrionic. I hope the slings and arrows of mild disagreement wont cause any lasting injuries.

Re: “Burlington Activist Takes Aim at 'White Supremacist' Mural

Absurd, overcharged rhetoric from a vacuous busybody. Some cheesy mural didn't "obliterate the lives" of the Vermont natives, the guys with flintlock muskets did hundreds of years ago.

I say we throw up a mural of Chief Joseph-Louis Gill because he was a real person and not some broad caricature of an Indian, and reading his biography can give you some insight into an interesting part of this region's history. I'll do it for just 20 grand, but you'll have to buy me some paint.

Re: “UVM Student Cited in 'Racist and Threatening Language' Case

So basically the city of Burlington is wasting my tax dollars on what amounts to a recruiting drive for the alt right. Fantastic.

Ali B,

Re: “Back to School: Striking Burlington Teachers Reach Agreement With Board

Janvt,

The teachers have chosen to better their lives by investing in themselves and going into a well paid and comfortable career field, I wont fault them for looking after their own best interests.

I'm going to look after my own best interests by getting the hell out of Burlington once my lease is up. There's nothing in this town to entice a working class man to stay.

You suggest people channel their energy at the corrupt and greedy administration instead of the corrupt and greedy union, I'd rather channel it into finding a U Haul. I think that's the only way to see a return on my spent energy.
