Re: “Vermont Democrats Slam Scott's Corporate Cash, Defend Their Own

Hey, knowyourassumptions, that's unfair. It's only Kafkaesque if Scott becomes a lame little allegorical short story that every 9th grader is forced to read in English class.

This is just supreme hypocrisy.

Re: “Rutland First: Vermont's Homegrown Opposition to Syrian Resettlement

Egmatic, why does the ethnicity of most of Rutland matter?

Why do you hate those of Scots-Irish-French decent so much?

Please, let's not bring race or ethnicity into this.

This is about property taxes.

You're an anti-white bigot, quite frankly.

Re: “Rutland First: Vermont's Homegrown Opposition to Syrian Resettlement

Continuing, Egmatic, I never said education is bad. I made a joke about a "Master's in something worthless" such as social work or something.

A doctor or an engineer with a Master's in solid state physics isn't worthless. Although, the only Masters that matter are in hard sciences.

However, most "education" these days is propaganda. The 60's radicals are now strangely government cheerleaders. Weird.

Furthermore, you never addressed the "who's going to pay for this stuff" part. Who, indeed?

What are your property taxes looking like this year?

Mine are 4.5K. And I'm not exactly living in Shelburne Farms.

I don't have kids, I've literally (and by literally I mean literally, not the way my Millennial cohorts usually use the term) never borrowed a dime in my life. I'm supposed to pay for other people to...

a) learn English at a rate of $50K a year (that's why BTV property taxes are so high. the share education money pool brought to us by Howard Dean via Act 60, baby)
b) feed, clothe and house them. All because of somebody else's bad decisions. or because Obama declared an undeclared war in Syria over a pipeline issue with Russia. Look it up. That's what Syria is about.

Re: “Rutland First: Vermont's Homegrown Opposition to Syrian Resettlement

Egmatic, here's the response.

First off, you responded to both me in and the O'Brien guy in the same post. Solid.

Keeping tracking of things is for suckers.

There's a bunch of things I can nail you on, but this it Seven Days, which is awful outside of food recommendations so I'm not sure why I'm doing this. Maybe I'm a glutton for punishment.


Every time a libertarian person makes a statement, a "cultural marxist" shows up and says "CITATION NEEDED". It was sort of a joke. And also turning the tables. A libertarian aka "right wing" person needs to provide facts.

A massively left-wing person needs to make a statement and let other people do the research.

Re: “At Health Care Rollout, Scott Leaves Key Questions Unanswered

Here's the deal, Heintz.

Scott didn't build it. And he didn't break it.

He's going to be the next Governor. Deal.

Shumdog Millionaire commissioned this $300 million piss-away of a website. I'm pretty sure you could recreate Amazon for that cash.

The guy doesn't precisely, down to the exact detail know what to do with this abortion.

Nobody else does.

It'll get figured out.

It's astonishing that Shumlin or anyone with a "D" or "P" next to their name on a ballot gets carte blanche and anyone that doesn't know how to fix the ensuing dumbassery gets The Third Degree when it comes to their detailed plan to fix something that should have never happened in the first place.

It's like asking "How do you plan to solve that tsunami that hit Japan a few years ago?"

Good lord, go back to Connecticut. Take a 100,000 of your transplant buddies with you.

Re: “Rutland First: Vermont's Homegrown Opposition to Syrian Resettlement

Oh, one more thing, Egmatic, the whole dot dot dot (...) aka ellipses thing is obnoxious. And condescending. And indicative of somebody with at least a Master's in something that really shouldn't be a field of study who gets off on seeming superior in comments sections but who backs down the second they're questioned on their faulty logic.

Use a period. Or a question mark.

Get it together, dude. I'm sure one of the Syrians you'll be housing in your own home can educate you on the finer points of grammar sometime in the mere 8 months it takes them to learn English. Make that 12 months. Make that 3 years. Make that... (ooh, see what I did there?)

I'm such a clever little cuss.

PS. Oh, and Paul Heintz, go back to working for Welch or whoever. You're better when you're out of sight and out of mind. Even if we're still paying Lizard Man's salary and you're his toady.

Re: “Rutland First: Vermont's Homegrown Opposition to Syrian Resettlement

Ya got me sold, Egmatic.

By the by, do you live in any of the cities mentioned there.

Also, [CITATION NEEDED] on the claim of those rejuvenated cities. Last I checked, most of them are s-holes or on their way to becoming one. Cite some economic stats, please.
