Re: “Burlington City Arts Foundation Buys Building on Pine Street

BCA and a bowling alley next door is/would be wonderful for the south end. The only thing I request, please no Burlington prices. What would seem ideal for families could easily be rendered too expensive and like so much of Burlington and so many events around here, a playground for young professionals to get drunk.

Re: “Burlington City Council Passes Amended Impartial Policing Policy

The self-loathing, confused dolts with massive white savior complexes are the usually progressive activists that somehow are convinced that there are groups of people that need to be saved by them. That these oppressed groups of people are either too stupid or uneducated that they cannot defend or speak for themselves. There is a rigidity in these white saviors dogma that is akin to religion, where reason and empirical evidence is of less value than faith in their beliefs. It is amazing that these experts on black and brown people are almost always lily white people usually from lily white priviledged neighborhoods who migrate to lily white Vermont and get radicalized by their lily white professors. There is a whole world out there filled with all types of people who are self-determined and perfectly capable of speaking for themselves. THEY DO NOT NEED YOUR SAVING. They do not want your saving. There is a sickness in Burlington and similar progressive enclaves where people view others as perpetual victims. It comes from inexperience and a lack of understanding, mixed with a disturbing level of white guilt. In the instance of this article our city council pandered to these people because they screamed loud enough, for long enough. And in the meantime there are actual real problems that need attention.

Re: “‘Big Tuesday’ a Big Setback for Sanders

Bernie needs to submit. If he truly means what he says it is time to go all in supporting Biden and stop tearing down the obvious Democratic candidate. The only reason he performed so well in 2016 was Hilary's massive deficiencies as a candidate. He misread the electorate this time and went full-frothed Socialist. America answered with a definitive and resounding NO THANK YOU! Now it is time to be a big boy and accept reality, which is not a Bernie strong-suit. Try to fight it out, play dirty and tear down the Dem candidate and Bernie will be Trump's best friend. There is no saving Bernie’s staggered campaign.

Re: “You, Me and the Void: A Millennial Valentine's Lament

Oh. I have a solution for you. Put down your %^$# smart phone and break up with the artificial, melodramatic, closed feedback loop of marketers that have hijacked your mind.

Re: “With Iowa Results Unclear, Sanders Declares, ‘Onward to Victory’

Bernie's paranoid militants demanded to change the process and data streams that were to be reported. This should be a small example of how it is easy to shout platitudes and wave your arms, and demand that we tear things down, but it is completely another thing to competently build functioning products that work. Vermont is the American capital of unintended consequences brought on by impractical aspirational politics. How much time and treasure has been squandered in this state incompetently chasing feel-good aspirational pipe dreams? If this is the first glance at a rollout which ends up in the dismantling of our most complicated systems and building supposed new idealized versions, then we are #$%^$^.

Do Vermonters not remember the technological debacle of Vermont Health Connect that is still not really working? If so, here is a quote that will remind you, “It’s just been a spectacular crash, really,” said State Representative Chris Pearson, a member of Vermont’s Progressive Party. “We’ve gone from this vision of being the first state to achieve universal health care, to limping along and struggling to comply with the Affordable Care Act.”

Re: “CityPlace Burlington Developers Provide Glimpse Into New Plans

"And they STILL don't have financing??!! This doesn't speak well for how banks view them."
No. It doesn't speak well for how banks view Burlington.

Re: “At Iowa Rally, Sanders Allies Slam Clinton, Bloomberg and Biden

Bernie's militants lecturing the Democratic Party on corruption? "The DNC sabotaging Bernie" you say? If Bernie or his many cowardly followers, looking directly at you TSR, had a drop of integrity, he would run as a Democratic Socialist, Independent, Liberty Unionist, or Progressive. But no, he disingenuously runs as a Democrat and then his minnions seek to "cleanse" the Democratic Party of non-believers. Where have we seen that before in world history? Where has this kind of rigid dogma and demagoguery led to before?

I admire Bernie for his consistency, energy, and near-miracle ability to bring his beliefs and movement to where it is today. He simply is not a Democrat and the democratic party does not need to be "cleansed" by his self-righteous "warriors" who crave an American purge.
