Re: “Slideshow: White Supremacist Rally Fizzles but Fascist Fighters Show Up

ksully, no, words very much have meaning which is why I object to your specious description of the Nazis as "socialist", which is just false.

Oh, their name is a shortened term for "National Socialist"? Well, I guess then we should believe them, everyone knows Nazis never lie!

Re: “Culcleasure Vows to Remain in Burlington Mayoral Race

" It is extremely UNdemocratic to demand, coerce, pressure a candidate to drop out of the race in order to restructure the competition "strategically."" --dogsforcats

Unfortunately with the First Past The Post voting system we use from a pragmatic perspective this often the only viable strategy if it is clear the vote is going to be split. I don't like it. Assuming you don't either I suggest working to change it. Personally I'm a fan of Condorcet voting methods, but really any Rank Choice systems would be better than what we have today.

Re: “Slideshow: White Supremacist Rally Fizzles but Fascist Fighters Show Up

ksully the Nazis were "socialists" like the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (i.e. North Korea) is "democratic". Words mean nothing in the hands of liars. In fact one of the first groups they targeted was organized labor and the means of production largely remained in private hands.

So yeah, maybe you should "stop throwing around words like Nazi and Fascist [and Socialist] if you don't have even the slightest inkling what they mean."

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

Intersex people exist. Some Intersex folks identify as male or female, and some do not. That in and of itself should be enough to justify another marker for those who wish it. Mr. Finley is trumpeting his ignorance.

Re: “Burlington Progressives Endorse Carina Driscoll for Mayor

re: lindamathews64's comment:

1) It is a caucus, not a primary.
2) Progressive's are not the only ones to use this legitimate and legal tactic. Just two elections ago Dave Hartnett lost in the Democratic caucus, yet ran (and won) as an Independent.

Re: “Backpedaling: Burlington Residents Challenge Plans for More Bike Lanes

marianne1 did you fail reading comprehension in school? I never said anything even close to: "we all should bike in the winter because he does".

I said: "Of course [committed motorists] think riding in Winter cannot be done, they've never tried it. "

Dispelling the demonstrably false notion that one cannot bike in Winter is hardly the same as saying everyone should do it, although plenty of people already do with more joining in every year. (_)

Get off your high horse and accept that folks are going to continue getting around lots of different ways. Focusing all our transportation resources on motoring fails the third of Burlingtonians who don't drive.

Re: “Backpedaling: Burlington Residents Challenge Plans for More Bike Lanes

Why talk only to committed motorists Seven Days??? Of course they think riding in Winter cannot be done, they've never tried it.

Here's a hint, it's actually not hard! Put on some studded tires if you like, dress in layers like whenever you do outdoors activities in the winter and just ride. You'll make plenty of heat once you get going, in fact the rule of thumb is "If you're warm when you step outside you're overdressed."

We can have either on street parking or people on bikes not in the general purpose lanes, but there is not space for both, so decide which one pisses you off less :D
