Re: “Cash In: Sanders Leads Pack in Fundraising

A course sanders has millions, when he dropped (paid off) out of the race, guess you don't have to pay back the donations you got... Why is he campaigning in other states? He lives in Vt or does he not know this...He sure isn't acting like a senator of Vt, he cares more about his greedy self than the Vermonters...Other states don't vote for him, oh wait, he's getting money from them...having all those houses it cost a lot for upkeep....Think there should be a limit on what politicians can spend..maybe sanders is getting tired of being worth millions, he wants to be a billionaire...

Re: “UVM Student Cited in 'Racist and Threatening Language' Case

This is a joke right?? A hearsay?? Since when was it against the law to talk on a cell phone on the campus? Seems to me someone(s) is stirring up some trouble. Not getting enough attention? Afraid to walk alone, walk in pairs. Is there a white student union? Do they have an annual event organized by the White Student Union? It's amazing that these snowflakes students are afraid of words.
Ok now remember don't talk on your cell at UVM, someone will hear you and they will have to run to their safe place and curl up in a ball and suck on a pacifier ...

Re: “UVM Responds to Student Demands on Race, Diversity Issues

Sounds like these demanding students think they own the college, it's their way or else!! How many of these students have done something wrong??? Taking down a BLM flag is not against the law, would they have had a fit if someone had taken down the American flag? What would happen if an all lives matter flag were put up or a Confederate Flag was put up. They would have fits... BLM flag is no better than any other flag. Thought there were there to learn, not demand that the college carter to just them...

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

Also, don't the facts and figures get shared with the people who deal with Social security increases? What increases!!! For yrs, SS didn't get any cost of living increase. They got one last yr, Wow a whole $3.00. hell that won't even buy a gal of milk.. people think you make a bundle if you're on SS... you work all your life and paid into SS and you get crap, yet they give it to illegals who never should get it...Social Security is from the working people, not the government. The government doesn't pay for it, but they have taken TRILLIONS from it and has no intention of paying it back. I have done a lot of research on this, and know what I'm talking about.President Roosevelt on August 14, 1935., the new Act created a social insurance program designed to pay retired workers age 65 or older a continuing income after retirement. The federal government is not allowed to borrow from either; any surplus from both is invested in special non-tradeable Treasury bonds.The Government has borrowed roughly 2.8 trillion from the Social Security trust funds alone. They say SS will run out of money 2030. if it runs out it's because of the Government borrowing from it to pay for stupid things which they have no right to touch it.
