Re: “Schurz Communications Seals Burlington Telecom Deal

Now that Miro has jettisoned a city asset into the private sector let us see what else he wants to sell off. As a very satisfied BT customer I can't help but feel that BT will be diminished into another "free markets solutions" mediocrity like Comcast once Schurz starts to bleed it out of every penny it can get. But then again, Neo-liberals love this kind of stuff.

Re: “Sanders Camp Says He's Best Positioned to Defeat Trump

It is amazing how many Putin loving TrumpChumps show up on an article about Bernie. Slow day over on the StormFront website?

Bernie won't be a frontrunner for long. The DNC and their Wall Street Masters will see to that. They are waiting on "Status Quo" Joe Biden to save them from all of this "socialism" run amuck.

Re: “Freeman Unseats Incumbent Knodell for Burlington City Council

Congrats to Perri and Jack. Now we can have some representation on City Council besides Max Tracy that will not roll over for Miro.

Maybe now the gentrification that is being rammed thru can be stemmed. I'm also glad to see the downtown expansion giveaway to the local oligarchs and Miro's Money Buddies went down in flames. Had it passed Downtown would start to become a gated community for the Elite and Elect to enjoy fine dining and shopping without all those pesky and dirty poor folks and homeless folks. We can't have that and be "vibrant"., now can we?

Unfortunately Jane Knodell sounds like Hillary Clinton in defeat: bitter and entitled. What a disappointment, I thought she was better than that. Guess not.

Re: “The Bern Rekindles: Sanders Kicks Off His Second Bid for President

Bernie will run again and once again the Wall Street Democrats will do their best to cripple his campaign like last time. The hit job has already started at MSNBC. You can hear them talking about "socialism" with their 1%er guests and "experts" in dark and hushed tones. They are smiling upon Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar at the moment. If Joe Biden gets in then they will all run to him because he is so "practical".

The DNC will not let Bernie anywhere near the nomination as that will piss off their Goldman Sachs Masters. Plus I'm sure that the Hillary Harpies are out yelling "Bernie Bros" ( a trope baked up at Hillary's Special Victim's Unit). You can already see the Democratic Establishment types like Pelosi, Schumer, et al pushing back against the Green New Deal and trying to keep the Progressive newcomers in line.

The DNC is so inept that they managed to lose to a vulgarian and ignoramus like Trump. They are not the party of change or any real progress, whether nationally or even locally. They are the party of money and profits, theirs, not yours. They are only interested in throwing poor folks just enough crumbs to keep them voting for Democratic candidates. Without a viable third party this country is doomed as the Republicans and Democrats are both Corporate Fellatio Artists and nothing more.

Re: “Vermont Senate to Vote on Corporate Contribution Ban

This bill will ultimately fail when it is challenged in the courts. That is because there are two stupendously idiotic ideas that pervade American "democracy". They are : 1) Corporations are "people" and , 2) Money is "speech".

Corporations seem to enjoy all of the pleasant and profitable things of personhood with out being burdened by any of the responsibilities and they are usually being run by a psychopath . If money is indeed "speech" then whoever has the most money talks the loudest, drowning out those who, because of their lack of monetary vocal cords, will not be heard. Some folks like to refer to this as "American Exceptionalism" and "liberty and freedom". It is oligarchy and cannibalism.

But we do live in cannibalistic and kleptocratic times, in fact it is celebrated in many quarters. Just watch the goose steppers on Fox News or the supposedly "liberal" MSNBC and see for yourself. It is all right there in plain sight.

Re: “Weinberger Uses PAC Dollars to Lobby for Burlington Ballot Items

The slime that has always been Miro's administration is finally coming to the surface. That our Real Estate Huckster boss should use campaign funds to push for his own ego-fed projects is no surprise, or the fact that he is funding a toadie like Shannon.

Perhaps we should just build a 120 foot statue on the waterfront, like the Colossus of Rhodes, with our enlightened mayor's face on it, raising his right arm over his head, holding a globe with lightening bolts coming out of it. On the plaque it will read ," Look upon all that I have created and bow down in amazement , for behold, I AM a GOD".
