Re: “Some Councilors Cry Foul As Obeng Gets Residency Exemption

GeishaGirl - none of the people living outside of Burlington in this article, including Obeng, are elected officials.

Re: “Some Councilors Cry Foul As Obeng Gets Residency Exemption

If they broadly don't enforce the rule, they should drop it. What's the point of giving tons of exemptions? It basically means anyone who doesn't want to follow the rule doesn't need to.

I think there's a little bit of special prejudice on display in the comments here, who cares if he's from Canada or anywhere else? He doesn't need to "secure U.S. citizenship" because being able to vote isn't a job requirement for a school superintendent.

He can't send his kids to Burlington schools while living in South Burlington because that is illegal (his school taxes are paid to SB, not Burlington district schools). Just accept reality and change the rule, or enforce it against everyone.

Re: “Montpeculiar: A Message of 'Anal Sex' in Front of the Statehouse

I wonder if this is the same Alia that posted a GoFundMe campaign for $9m for living expenses while she travels the world looking for a new home?…

Re: “Vermont Tax Chief Declines to Detail Education Funding Proposal

Controlling growth in spending is never a bad idea. But a governor can't govern by simply making demands. Broad outlines aren't proposals. If the governor has something more concrete than a thought bubble about how to accomplish the changes he demands, he should offer it. Otherwise, it's akin to ordering the legislature to build a ramp to the moon. "How do we do that, sir?" "I don't know, just get it done!"

Re: “'Shame On You': In Milton, Pro-Gun Crowd Slams Vermont Politicians

A deranged guy without a gun is a lot less likely to kill people than a deranged guy with an AR-15. This fact seems to be lost by all the "guns don't kill people" parrots.

It turns out the U.S. isn't the only nation in the world with schools. However, we are the only nation with a major school shooting problem. The main difference? Most of the rest of the world doesn't have hundreds and hundreds of millions of firearms floating around, largely unregulated, in the hands of anyone who wants one.

Re: “Vermont Hemp Company Responds to ‘Unfounded’ Lawsuit

Emily, while the bank could force the sale of the entire property for a debt that is much less than the value of the property, that doesn't mean it keeps 100% of the proceeds. It will keep what it is owed, plus any costs for initiating the foreclosure, and then Hausman gets the remainder.
