Re: “Scott Vetoes Marijuana Legalization in Vermont

Our governor demonstrates that he's out of sync with the voters.

Re: “If at First You Don't Secede: Trump Could Revitalize Vermont Movement

With all due respect Naylor, Williams, et. Al. Are a little late to the party. In 1984, April 1st, I, along with a colleague, introduced a Resolution on the House floor that declared Vermont would secede from the union. Then Speaker, Ralph Wright, somewhat perplexed by the resolution, sent it off to Judiciary where it died a likely death. By lunchtime we had about 70 members approach us about signing onto the resolution. I suggested that they go back and re-read it...then look at the date.

It's a fun idea to talk about but it's not going anywhere....is it?

Re: “Brock Calls Zuckerman Untrustworthy in New Ads

I know both of these gentlemen personally and I must say that I'm surprised that Randy Brock would stoop to this level. I've known him to be a positive, formidable candidate. Taking this tact shows that he's more desperate than most previously thought. David Zuckerman is a very hardworking farmer who has sacrificed a great to serve his state.

Re: “Lisman Supporters to Lead Campaign for Vermont

OK, so Mr. Lisman dumps almost $1mil of his own money into this "non-partisan" organization not to raise his profile for a run for governor but to address issues. Then he steps down, runs for governor and gets whooped. Now he's walking away from the organization. The fact that he's walking away after getting beat and after saying he wasn't going to run for governor sort of makes it pretty clear that the impetuous for creating this group was to do exactly what Mr. Lisman has denied right along; allow him to run for governor. If that wasn't the reason then it would seem logical that he would remain involved in CFV.

Re: “Minter Gets to Talk Plenty as She Debates an Empty Chair

There's nothing that says you don't care about the voters more than not showing up at a debate. Sure there are always conditions that you don't like but you do not NOT show up. It allows your opponent to do just what Sue did; debate an empty chair. As a career politician I'm surprised that Phil allowed this to happen.

Re: “Lisman Gives Own Campaign for Governor $1.6 Million

Lest we forget Lisman also blew another million when he started Campaign for Vermont (which was nothing more than a self-funded campaign for him).

Re: “The Gun: How I Bought an AR-15 in a Five Guys Parking Lot

He should've been denied on that look on his face alone!!!
