Re: “A Gunshot Survivor Aims to Secure Background Checks in Vermont

I think maybe it's time somebody file charges against Seven Days for their persistent and intentional lying & misrepresentation of the facts. This isn't journalism, it's one sided wanton ignorance.

Re: “Virginia Candidates Win Office With Help From Vermont Group

While I might agree with some of the ideals these people espouse, I can't help but find it laughable that they really believe the democratic party is going to represent them or that it gives a dam about them beyond the voting booth and the continued professionally contrived distraction of "us against them". Should rename that soup "We the Party".

Re: “Sound and Fury: Wind Foe Unleashes Blast of Rhetoric

Part two - Blame the word counter

Then on the other end of the light spectrum is the well known Ultra-violet, another part that isn't visible to our eyes but we know it was there when we have a severe sun burn like we spent the day in an oven at 350. Ultra-violet light is at a frequency that penetrates the clouds that block the visible light and degrades almost everything outside from our roofing materials to paint on our homes and cars to rubber and plastics, most of which we now have UV inhibitors in but are still eaten away slowly by UV.

Sound waves also have a spectrum, the parts we can hear/perceive and the parts that go well beyond our hearing and like light, are the most dangerous parts. The vibrations of sound waves interact with and alter the vibration of everything they hit and can do serious damage. Think about how microwaves cook meat by penetrating and altering the vibrational frequency of the molecules. The military has used sound wave weapons that will rupture a persons organs from a long distance and goes straight through walls. European countries have already documented all of this and set standards and limits that, of course, our big corporate wind people just want to ignore, because they are too inconvenient and get in the way of their profiteering. And this is all aside from the damage to the landscape, water quality, hunting and fishing grounds etc etc etc.

Re: “Sound and Fury: Wind Foe Unleashes Blast of Rhetoric

Part 1 - Blame the word counter

There is a very clear demonstration of a serious ignorance here on the part of people saying they stood right next to the towers and couldn't hear anything, so it couldn't possibly be causing harm. I'm sure some of that is willful & intentional ignorance, otherwise known as misinformation & propaganda but there is also just a lack of real understanding too.

These turbines produce infra-sound, sound that is beyond the range of our hearing and can't be perceived by our ears but still penetrates and interacts with everything that those waves hit. Just like sunlight has a visible spectrum that our eyes perceive along with infra-red that our eyes can't see but we can certainly feel on our skin as heat, even from the sun that is millions of miles away. Our wood burning stoves and radiators produce infra-red light as well. We can see it with infra-red cameras. You don't see any light coming from the front of your wood burning stove but you certainly aren't going to be happy holding your hand too close for too long are you?

Re: “ACLU Sues to Protect Homeless Encampments in Burlington

Miro Weinberger wants Burlington to become a "Sanctuary City" for immigrants. (because there's incentives to be had...) but for the citizens of Vermont, not so much.

Re: “Vermont Huts Association Launches Statewide System of Trailside Cabins

"The one thing that I was most surprised about, though: lack of backcountry accommodations.

That is, by definition, what makes it the "backcountry". And those of us who like such places do have "accommodations", typically I use a tent.

Re: “Trump-Bashing, Romney-Advising Political Operative Stuart Stevens Finds Himself in Vermont


Agreeing with most of what you say, there is no fixing the political parties... They are, definitively, what is the most broken with our entire political system.

As for the clown this article is about... the entire thing could have been summed up with "Master immoral spindoctor moves to Vermont.
