Re: “Oil Baron Seeks Sanders Aide's Testimony in Price-Fixing Suit

Skip cannot handle Costco competing with him in only one location, because Skip has a big problem. He can't hoard enough money. He is fat and greedy and wants more more more, at the expense of---well, he doesn't care who makes him richer, does he? Hey Skip: Go mate with Donald ya greedy f..k

Re: “Critics Say Burlington Telecom Deal Shortchanges Taxpayers

With no input from taxpayers, city officials diverted tax dollars to BT. Seventeen million of them. It was fraud.

Re: “Developer Has Not Sought Foundation Permit for Massive Burlington Project


One person's gossip is another person's discussion of possible explanations for the strange behavior of City Place's developer. To not press on with the construction when everything appears to be in place is strange behavior. Mr. Sinex is not about to tell a member of the Great Unwashed (like me) why the project has stalled, hence the speculation, or what you, BDE, would deem destructive gossip. You do realize this is a public project? A comment on a public project in a public forum is free speech, BDE. Get over yourself.

Re: “Developer Has Not Sought Foundation Permit for Massive Burlington Project

I'm in the Vermont construction business. Perhaps six weeks ago my commercial decorating company was contacted by PC, Inc's arch-rival, Whiting-Turner, to price the City Place project. I thought this was an exercise in futility and told the W-T estimators that in my opinion Don Sinex was using them to keep PC honest. Then I heard that PC lost 70 million bucks in their last fiscal year. It could be that they reviewed their deal with him and determined that it wasn't profitable enough.

Later, while talking to a PC estimator about a different job, I was told Don doesn't have the necessary funding. You can't do work on promises alone. How embarrassing, huh?

Re: “Coyne Releases Orphanage Victims From Confidentiality Agreements

A few years ago I found out that in Catholic doctrine the clergy are viewed as higher and closer to God than the laity. (Laity means common shlubs like you and me.) Not so long ago all masses were given in Latin, which was a deliberate way for the clergy to appear all-knowing, better than the average believer. What a crock, of course. These men--the nuns aren't much better if they are better--have lorded it over and tithed innocent believers for centuries. They have used the good faith of people to enrich themselves and abuse children. The whole rotten edifice of the Catholic church--including its tax exempt status--should come crashing to the ground. Sorry, but how many get out of jail free cards are we to give them? Enough is enough.

Re: “Vermont Inmates Moving to CoreCivic Prison in Mississippi

Shoulda thought things through before victimizing people, huh, you boys in the striped pajamas? While basking in that Mississippi heat you might want to work on your impulse control...
