Re: “Opinion: Can a Democrat Be a Revolutionary?

Taking Chomsky's quote at face value [which I don't always do] it is a sad commentary on how the country has changed that Bernie is viewed as threatening by anyone today. The "Reagan Revolution" certainly at least started us on the sad path we are on now. Judith, if you would feel more comfortable just calling Bernie a "Counter-Reagan Revolutionary" I'd compromise and not quibble with your historical memory of the 60's, when perhaps you were a little, shall we say, impaired.

Re: “Council Approves Preliminary Agreement With Burlington Town Center Developer

Any public servant who approves a "predevelopment agreement" which is only intended to insure this speculator is treated differently, has not only given away the sacred trust he/she was given by the voters, but has also violated the oath of office he/she took. Shame on you.

Article 6. Officers servants of the people
That all power being originally inherent in and consequently derived from the people, therefore, all officers of government, whether legislative or executive, are their trustees and servants; and at all times, in a legal way, accountable to them.
Vt. Constitution Chap.1.

The Oath or Affirmation of Office
You __________ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that you will faithfully execute the office of __________ for the __________ of __________ and will therein do equal right and justice to all persons, to the best of your judgment and ability, according to law. So help you God.
