Re: “Vermont LG Becomes Part of Shen Yun's Massive Marketing Blitz

Falun Gong is a propaganda machine which has roped many people in over the years. I despise what was originally a movement of resistance to the oppressive govt of China and now has become a cult profiteering an man with a big narcissistic ego. Most people don't know the agenda of this movement so I can't blame David for getting used. It will not be the last time a public official does with this group.

Re: “Dakota Access Pipeline Opponents March on TD Bank in Montpelier

In the 1960's in the Deep South, some newspapers stopped taking ads from businesses including banks that profited off racism. I won't hold my breath on this one concern concerning Seven Days since they still take money from a multinational tobacco company that uses indentured poor for making their "Native Spirits" organic cigarettes. Part of the Reynolds company impacting indigenous people. Our news media can make a major impact by not giving ad space to these companies. We are all in this struggle.

Its all blood money and supported by american capitalism which means that people die in this country because they can't afford medications, everyday, while there are multi-millionaires running this companies.

Re: “Why Are Burlington Residents Sending Tax Payments to New York?

City could have gone with one of our locally controlled credit unions. If everything is truly the bottom line for our city these days, might as well sent to money to organized crime. I'm sure we could have gotten an even better deal!

Re: “Sanders Endorsement Nets Pearson $60K for State Senate Bid

Working people who believe in change, and as someone who is to the left of Sanders, we are talking about what would be mainstream working class politics pre 1980, are sending money across the country to individual candidates they believe in. And with modern technology we can connect around the world in ways unheard of. Its better than the blood money gathered by the Koch brothers and Karl Rove spread out to corporate driven Republicians and big pharma, big insurance, and big bank money going to many mainstream Democrats. This is not the simpler times of 1968 when George Aiken spent under 100$ on postage for relection.
