Re: “Media Note: VTDigger Scores a Small Win on EB-5 Documents

State Auditor, Doug Hoffer, has promised a thorough audit of this EB-5 fiasco. He's been working on it for more than a year and I don't think 'the State' can prevent him from accessing this documentation. On the other hand, whether he chooses to pursue the information or not remains to be seen.

Re: “Opioid Deaths Rise in Vermont but Plummet in Chittenden County

"At the same time, the total number of Vermonters who died of an opioid overdose continued to increase."

In other words, Vermont's two State economic, educational and social status not only continues, its polarity is being exacerbated.

I implore everyone to watch economist Thomas Sowells recent interview - especially those of you not living in Chittenden County. Your community survival depends on knowing the data and being able to read between the lines of Vermont's pervasive political rhetoric.

Re: “Former Official: State Watchdog Helped Green Mountain Power, Not Vermonters

Cronyism and Government. It comes with the territory.

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Support for Pot Legalization Reaches a New High

Vermont Medical Society voted against tax and regulate marijuana legalization, saying it will increase human suffering and state budgetary pressure

"Pay Attention: Distracted Driving Could Boost Your Insurance Rates By As Much As 41%"

"The insurance industry and regulators have to ensure any rate changes they make are justified, so even though cell phones aren't new to you and me, the risks and dangers they pose for drivers have only recently been substantiated and now distracted drivers are really seeing the effects on their premiums."

While virtually everyone uses a cell phone, currently, only "... 16 percent of Vermonters smoked marijuana during the past year..."

Waiting to exhale...inevitably, law abiding citizens will, yet again, subsidize the irresponsible behavior of others.

Another 'new high'.

"Car insurance rates are likely to increase 4-6 percent in states with legal marijuana, a leading insurance industry actuary says."

What a 'rush'.....

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Will Weed Tourism Take Off in Vermont?

Re: Cannabis attracts everyone, from lawyers to truckers, ...

Sanity and redundancy aside, a stoned lawyer is one thing. But, speaking of green flow, the prospect of a sky pilot driving a 40 ton rig at 65 mph on I-89 is another, entirely. One would hope, not just yet.
