Re: “After Ad Is Pulled, Sean Hannity Fans Bash Keurig Machines

Smash them all...they produce enough non-recyclable pods to wrap the globe...perhaps wrap it twice by now.

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

Barbara Alsop, 2,200 groups across the globe have formed in self-defense against the damage that these projects present to both human and non-human lives and ecosystems. That you haven't personally encountered these damages does not mean they do not exist. They exist not all that far from your address, I expect. Would you give up your home to reclaim your health if it were damaged? Sleep soundly tonight but know that others cannot.

The collective WE demands growth, growth that is insatiable but not very creative. In VT that occurs in one county, demanding more housing, parking, and a widening circle of commuters creating more demands. Directing that growth to areas that are losing population, have ample housing stocks, and want local opportunities is one solution. Require new commercial building to include rooftop solar. It's past time for solar parking lots. Favor mass transit over ECars that enable single occupants. We need a new economy that lives smaller - but the money is in big global corporate technology. If the money (and neoenviros' shoulders) were put to such, perhaps we wouldn't be battling among ourselves and could all sleep at night, and bears wouldn't be displaced from their habitat in Vermont's national forest land today.

It is all too easy and simplistic to proclaim your support for this industrial "answer" when you have not been harmed or threatened by it.

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

Walters' long-known bias colors any writing he does on the topic.
It's unfortunate that he gets to inject that bias on the topic in Seven Days.

The machine appeared

In the distance, singing to itself
Of money. Its song was the web
They were caught in, men and women
Together. The villages were as flies
To be sucked empty.
God secreted
A tear.
Enough, enough,
He commanded, but the machine
Looked at him and went on singing.

(poet R. S. Thomas).

Those Vermonters who buy a lot of items online w/o paying sales tax and then claim ZERO on their tax forms are undermining the abiity to keep our taxes down. Who should pay for your dishonesty?

Re: “Policy Wonk Nicole Mace Lands in a Swirling Political Storm

Those pols who are lockstep, never give an inch democrats have proven themselves unwilling to open their thinking. How is an unworkable situation to evolve if a brain is in lockdown, Mitch McConnell style?

Evolution can be disruptive, but stasis can be deadly.
Here is a democrat brave and smart enough to look beyond politics towards constructive reality.

Re: “Heroism 2.0: Vermonters on the Front Lines of Health Care Debate

I appreciate the first section..real people putting themselves on the line to protest a bad idea.

Skeletons is a different kettle of fish, and better suited to wrapping same.
