Re: “Secure Lockers for the Homeless Proposed in Burlington

It's not apples and oranges just cuz you say so. Your snarky (but totally predictable) anti-mall comments imply (along with Leaterhune's) that Mr. Sinex is anti-homeless, that his affordable housing commitment is "token," and that he has some duty to house the homeless because the mall is "a business." There is no basis for any of those attacks. But, then again, that never stopped any of the anti-mall zealots.

And the subject of this article was the Salvation Army and the homeless, not Sinex or the mall. They're not mentioned in the article. But leave it to Leaterhune and you to turn any thread into an excuse for your never-ending anti-mall rants.

When you open your own house to the homeless, or when you buy a private property on Church Street and donate it as a homeless shelter, feel free to come back with another snide and baseless attack on Sinex for being "anti-homeless."

Re: “Secure Lockers for the Homeless Proposed in Burlington

"Sinex doesn't want the homeless bringing down the property value of his mall. He will build his token affordable housing in the basement because he has to but there is no money for him in helping the homeless."

Is your house open to the homeless? Yeah, didn't think so.

Re: “'Rebels' Yell: Protests Build Over South Burlington's Mascot Change

"Hey Kiya Batmanglidj, Corey Mansfield, Dan Emmons and the rest of the RA; one of your ilk is threatening to shoot up the SB high school. You all proud of how your 'populist revolt" is going?"

Wrong! Wrong, wrong, wrong! Are you -- and all the rest of the commenters on here who blamed the anti-name-changers for being behind the violent threats -- going to apologize now?

Re: “Vermont Senate Votes 21-9 for Marijuana Legalization

@ FruSessions

Guess you didn't read the article. Democrats in the Senate voted against this legalization bill, and the House, which is against legalization altogether, is Democratically controlled.

Get a clue.

Re: “Vermont Court Ruling Leaves 'Gaping Loophole' in Public Records Act

Government officials use private email accounts in conducting government business for one reason: to thwart the open records laws, to hide public records from the public, to keep their bribe-taking secret, to keep their unseemly deals from being exposed to light of day. And now they've got a judge who admits that the use of private email for public business is "disturbing," but who chooses to interpret the Vermont public records law in a way that essentially tells these government officials: go ahead, keep using your private email accounts for government business and no one will find out what you're doing.

I read Judge Mello's interpretation of the law. It could just as well have gone the other way.

I have no beef with private email. Private email is fine. Private email is lovely. Private email is beautiful. Private email is for PRIVATE shit. Private email is not for your GOVERNMENT shit.

I say, make it a felony and an impeachable offense for any Vermont government employees, especially governors, lieutenant governors, and attorneys general, to be caught using a private email account to discuss their GOVERNMENT business, and let's see what happens.

Re: “Bernie Sanders' Campaign War Chest Nears $3.9 Million

"Bernie Sanders' Campaign War Chest Nears $3.9 Million"

Sanders personifies exactly what he says is wrong with U.S. politics. What does he need this yuuuge pile of money for? To make sure that no one will even consider running against him for the Vermont Senate seat in 2018? He is the biggest hypocrite on the American Left.

Re: “Bernie Sanders Brings His Message to Ben & Jerry's St. Albans Plant

"Sanders is scheduled next week to begin a tour with Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez and other party leaders to rally supporters in eight states, including Maine, Kentucky and Florida."

He's got time to fan the flames of his own egomania, cult of personality, and fundraising, but not the time to speak to any Vermont media.
