Re: “Walters: Effort to Revive Full Cannabis Legalization Flames Out

All of a Sudden, Home-Grown is Such A Bad Thing ?

The supporters of commercialization and regulation are just money-grubbers willing to sell out Vermont's future (especially the future of our youth) for the fabled "thirty pieces of silver" !

We have legalized personal possession and cultivation, shouldn't we observe how that "sugars out" before giving in to the profiteers whose motivation is to see every Vermonter sedated into submission !

Their urgency is spawned by their greed and fear that the public will awaken from their slumber and realize what a destructive result big weed would bring to our Green Mountain home.

Re: “Nonprofits Urge Vermont Lawmakers to Ditch Tax Change

How Worthy Are They ?

If people won't donate to your cause unless the donation can be used as a tax deduction - is it possible your organization isn't all that charitable ? Are wealthy donors motivated by the ability to avoid paying taxes or by the worthiness of the organizations charitable works and acts ? Every dollar donated represents the avoidance of desperately needed tax dollars the Legislature is looking to confiscate in order to finance their own "charitable" agenda - something has got to give !

Re: “Scott's Education Plan Includes Proposed Tax Penalties

Who the hell cares about student to staff ratios ? The real problem is with those districts with high per student costs - an entirely different figure ! Many small school districts have high student to staff ratios and yet have some of the lowest cost per pupil numbers in the state !

These fools have no idea what they are doing !

Re: “Walters: Hallquist Launches Vermont Gubernatorial Campaign

A Different Kind of Vermonter

Christine may be ready to be Vermont's next Governor, whether Vermont is ready for her to be Governor - only time (and a vigorous campaign) will tell !

Re: “Walters: Vermont Dead Last in Sending a Woman to Congress

Let's Elect a Woman This November, It's About Time to Give Peter the Boot !

They can't win if they don't run ! To the best of my knowledge, with the exception in Cris Ericson of Chester, no Vermont woman has ever run to represent the state in Congress ! I understand she is running against Welsh, maybe we should let he bypass the election process and give her the job !
