Re: “Hogan's Return: Longtime Public Servant Blasts Mega-Prison Plan

Excellent points Roy, I too am discouraged by both political extremes. While I lean left, it is disturbing that Vermont and Burlington are controlled by mostly single party politics. There is only ONE Republican on the Burlington council. Too many taxpayers are being left out. That is not what Democracy is suppose to look like.

Re: “Media Note: Top Burlington Free Press Editor Fired After Controversial Tweets

This story is very troublesome. It is soooo blown out of proportion and has resulted in a man loosing his livelihood. Such psychological violence!!! So what Finley doesn't support the latest liberal view.

I'm not a liberal basher; although their self-righteousness disgust me. They have gone too far with this. Great shame on them.

This is a cult that needs some internal soul-searching.

Re: “Media Note: Top Free Press Editor Sparks Outrage on Twitter

Oh, how self-righteous liberals love to pounce on every statement and action that they consider incorrect - not their's.

I think it is unfair to fire Mr. Finley just because he has conservative opinions.

He, like myself, grew up in a different time and with different societal norms. It is insanity to expect people with deeply ingrained conservative values and beliefs from another time, to flip a switch to satisfy today's liberal (of which I once labelled myself - not anymore) opinions.

So, trans can now identify themselves on their license. Big deal. It's not awesome - it just is. Why start a battle over it that has now cost a man his livelihood? Who can possibly feel good about that now?

A man's career has been destroyed. Was it worth it?

Re: “The Brazile Brouhaha: New Book Underscores Strife In Democratic Ranks

even Days: Would you please ban Donna Boutin from posting? Her EXCESSIVE abuse toward the Democrat/liberal parties is nothing more than angry hate mongering. For goodness sake they are only political parties. That intense kind of ignorant negativity is scary! What's with her excessively being allowed to pollute these comment pages with her intense hate?

What a way to go through life!

Re: “Family Describes Troubled Life of DCF Shooter Herring

Roy: Are you a psychiatrist and have you examined Jody Herring? If not, stop pretending to be one.

Re: “After Tie Vote, Burlington Telecom Bidders Will Attempt Compromise

Of course Paul is going back to her job after the vote - manipulation is the name of the game here.

Re: “Former Vermont State Senator Ed Flanagan Dies

I agree, the mention of the Y incident was tasteless and reporting at its worst.
