Re: “Proof Negative: Auditor Documents Lack of Evidence for Business Incentives

Taxpayer funded welfare for Corporations . . austerity for the poor.

Gotta love the Corporate capture of government at all levels.

"Free market capitalism" as practiced today is a suicide cult.

Miro and Sinex sure love it.

Re: “Walters: Campaign Donations Are Light in Race for Governor

GOP Dark Money is waiting to see how unhinged Stern sounds in comparison to Scott. If Stern is more rabid and removed from reality then he will get the lion's share of outsider loot. Scott is being seen as a "liberal" because of the weak kneed attempt at gun control legislation he signed earlier this year. If Scott wants to win the GOP nomination he better start taking his policy cues from Alex Jones and StormFront, which is the heartbeat of Republican politics.

Re: “Professional Fundraisers Keep a Large Cut of the Cash They Bring In for Nonprofits

Paid fundraisers are nothing but obscene Capitalist vultures. But that does fit with the creeping Fascist times we live in.

Re: “The Champlain Valley Fair Is a Rite of Summer — and a Nonprofit

You can bet that if revenues from the Fair keep dropping at the rate they are Shea will sell this 130 acre prime piece of property in a heartbeat. Then watch what gets built there . . . Miro-itis will infect Essex.

Re: “UVM Medical Center Seeks to Hire Hundreds in Advance of Strike

Here come the scabs. If Hotel Vermont accommodates these people then the 1%er Hotel Vermont should be boycotted and workers should have a sit-down strike.

GOP/Trump's Amerika= Gut the middle class and kill the poor, making the world kneel to the Capitalist Cannibals.

Re: “Nurses' Union to Serve UVM Medical Center With a Strike Notice

You know that the hospital CEO will bring in scabs to fill in while the strike happens. The nurses are worth everything they are asking for. Where are all those "living wage" politicians? Haven't heard squat from any of them. You know, the ones on City Council who talk about this when they aren't bending over for some real estate developer.

Re: “Burlington Officials Lay Out Vision for Memorial Auditorium Process

Here's how this will go: Miro/CEDO will let folks give their input which they will ignore then do what the Mayor wants anyways, which is to level the entire block and construct a huge monstrosity. This idea of building an arena in the same location goes back to the days of our former mayor and Vaudeville act Peter Clavelle. Clavelle now carries water for developers like Sinex. Ka-ching!

City council will be complicit in this, calling anyone who dares defy our Dear Leader of being an "obstructionist" and not being "vibrant" enough to live within city limits. The local media will be what they usually are: stenographers and cheerleaders for Corporate Interests and mostly ignore anyone who wants to keep Memorial for future generations and instead giving hours of air time and miles of ink to those who will shill for the Mayor and his Money Buddies.

Miro intentionally stopped funding for the repairs on Memorial auditorium years ago to bring it to the point of collapse, just like Trump/GOP has done to the funding for Obamacare. Which is further proof that arrogant Real Estate developers should never have power in elected office, they are too prone to greed ,corruption and over-reach. Which hopefully will be the undoing of both.

Welcome to the End of the Empire, fellow Romans. Drink up, enjoy the "Arts", clothe yourself in the finest, eat the best while it all falls down around you. But can't dare ask our Rulers why there is no more clean, safe drinking water with a straight face. You have happily sold your soul to the Culture of Bread and Circus and Endless Consumption.
