Re: “Census Bureau: Vermont Only State to See Poverty Rate Rise in 2016

If you tell the people the reason why this is, they'll tell you "NO IT'S NOT". Then they'll keep on voting just like they have been for 20 years and wonder why it's not getting better.

Re: “Ghost-Town Center: The Dying Days of Burlington's Downtown Mall

Only in Vermont can you get people complaining about urban sprawl and then when someone wants to build an urban project in an urban center, the same people complain about that. News Flash: As cities get bigger they can build up or out, which one would you prefer? Choosing neither is not an option.

Re: “Vermont Legislators Admit to Cheating the System. Are They Justified?

Ah yes Mr. "Extract As Much Money From Government For My Personal Use As I Can Zuckerman" Is the same legislator that tried to eliminate the mortgage interest deduction on hard working Vermonters.

Mmmmmmm smell that hypocrisy, Push class warfare but line your pockets every chance you get. Say "money I get from government is okay, but the money you get is bad"

Maybe Zuckerman can head on up to Bernie's new vacation pad in the islands and they can have a barbecue and laugh at all the wool they're pulling over Vermonter's eyes.

Re: “Bernie Sanders Buys a Summer Home in North Hero

Multiple houses, nice cars, luxury living, absolutely nothing wrong with that, as long as you don't preach socialism to the rest of us, while living that purely capitalist lifestyle.

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

Two adults made a legal firearms transaction, somehow let's insert all kinds of evil "gun-nut" drama in to it, and you wonder why those of us that support gun ownership, detest the narrative.

You know in a free society, there will always be people that will use that freedom to their own means and against others. Absolutely no way you stop that it's human nature, and the freer the society the more it gives people a chance to behave badly. That is no reason to limit people in their choices.

You're a big drug legalization supporter right Paul, happy to gloss over all the downsides of it right? Personally people smoking pot and driving cars scares the living hell out of me. A lot more than the possibility of someone shooting up a bar I in, but THAT discussion about curtailed freedoms is verboten right? Cause well liberal and pot and Vermont duh, how dare you question that.

So how about less stories that are about your agenda and a little more investigative journalism about things that really affect all of us.

Re: “Wealthy Mormon Buys Up Vermont Land for Massive Settlement

Great they can replace the 20,000+ that will have fled the state because of high taxes by the time they actually start building.
