Re: “Bernie Sanders' Campaign War Chest Nears $3.9 Million

This seems like an appropriate time to bring this up, when Bernie was running for president why didn't he ever disclose his finances like everyone else did? He missed 3 deadlines. What was he afraid of...maybe his trashing the 1% would not go over so well if people saw he was one of the 1%. How many middle class people do you know that can put down over $600,000 cash for a seasonal camp?

Bernie, maybe if you publish your tax returns, then maybe Trump will follow suit?

Re: “Montpeculiar: Feeling Spurned, House Republicans Threaten to Boycott

ej...This is Vermont where you can pick and choose which laws and rules you want to follow and ignore the others. There is quite a precedence for this. Guess it depends on the group that decides to not follow the rules

Re: “Vermont Lawmakers Float Carbon-Combating Proposals

David Z,
In this age of texts, online comments, etc where you cannot pick up on the normal nuances that would communicate you are having fun or joking around etc, are not present and end up being misconstrued.
Even innocuous emails should be read before hitting the send to see if they might be misinterpreted. It is one of the big losses of our connected times

Re: “Vermont Lawmakers Float Carbon-Combating Proposals

Hannah, do you really think they will reduce the sales tax and return money to low income people? You obviously have not watched how the Dem controlled legislature has behaved over the past 20 or so years. Do you have any idea how this will negatively affect the rural areas of Vermont where there are no local stores, no local doctors, no local jobs? Where you have to drive 12-25 miles or more to buy food, or see a doctor. These are the areas where there are more elderly, more low income people than in Chittenden County.
Perhaps it is time to stop finding ways to take money and find ways to save money

Re: “Weinberger Discusses Refugees and Plans in State of the City Address

I would disagree with RB, I think Miro has done very well moving Burlington onto more sound financial footing without all the smoke and mirrors that went on under Kiss and Leopold.

Re: “House Leaders Accuse Gov. Scott of ‘Shirking Responsibilities’

For years the DEMS/Progs in the Legislature have been spending as if there is no bottom to the amount taxpayers can afford. The budget deficit was the result of this continual spending frenzy and now Scott is saying to the legislature, you figure it out. He presented a budget that was immediately rejected with no attempt to discuss or compromise so it was dropped back in the legislature's lap. Now they are the responsible ones and cannot hide behind saying "The governor made the cuts", now we will see if they can be fiscally responsible or not.

Re: “'Mob' Attacks Middlebury Prof and Controversial Speaker Charles Murray

I find the students' actions deplorable. So their are disagreements over opinion, Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Unfortunately this was also shown evident during the presidential campaign and after. "It is ok to have an opinion as long as it does not disagree with mine, if it does then I can act in all manner of disrespect and even resort to being a thug because they should not disagree with me." is the mantra of a lot of these people. Then to say they were afraid for their safety, they should be sent home to their parents and disciplined like the spoiled little children they are
