Re: “Bernie Bits: Sanders Talks Pot, God and Electability on Jimmy Kimmel

Tell you this much, if enemy forces come to our shores I for one will be happy that the top of the line US Air Force jets don't have too far to go to protect my posterior ;). I hope it never comes to that but if it should.

Re: “Environmental Groups Ask Board to Kill Massive Randolph Project

Not trying to stir up the hornet's nest, but if Vermont wants to attract jobs and make it's way into at least the 20th Century...baby steps people ;) , then they need to stop with this aesthetic whining because you can't have 21st Century luxuries and jobs if you demand Colonial aesthetics and laws and lifestyles like we do here in Vermont. Get real Vermonters you're trying to defy logic and reap the gains of modern day luxuries with Colonial tactics. Do you really believe that Vermont cares about Vermonters! They only care about the flatlanders! They have the money that this state DEPENDS on to survive. That is why they charge just as much and most times MORE for the SAME products here in Vermont as they charge down in Boston! Yet Vermont jobs don't pay nearly as good as jobs down in the Boston area? Our food and gas prices here in Vermont are ridiculous compared to down in the Boston area. I heard a gallon of gas in my old hometown of Woburn is $2.37 a gallon! Why are we paying .30+ cents more a gallon up here...because we are a TOURIST STATE and the flatlanders will pay that much for gas to visit us and therefore WE must also pay that much :(. If this state really cared about Vermonters it would have (2) prices for everything. (1) price for the TOURISTS and if you can produce a valid Vermont driver's license with proof of address, then a discounted price for our own since we don't get paid as well as the tourists who can obviously afford our "TOURIST STATE" prices ;)
