Re: “Burlington City Councilor Accuses Other Members of Racism

I will only state that non-white folks in the US usually have a much better understanding of how racism works in this country than white folks. I'll go with Dieng on this one.

Re: “Scott Vetoes Minimum Wage, Paid Family Leave Bills

In ten years people who don't see the forest of future debt and more money going to the banks and the 1% because they are so focused on the trees of minor tax increases will wonder why Vermont's middle class no longer exists yet its wealthy non tax paying few thrive. Scott is using the same playbook as the right wing Scott Walker of Wisconsin. Too bad Vermonters are falling for the smooth talking lies. His vetoes accomplish the same thing that Trump does. They destroy the social fabric in favor of more profits for the few. Good luck explaining the future to your kids and grandkids. They won't understand why you didn't want to pay a few dollars more a month to pay teachers, fund healthcare and keep Vermont healthier than its neighbors.

Re: “Burlington City Council Votes to Re-Redesign City Hall Park

If development means destroying BUrlington's neighborhoods and green, then we need to reconsider development.

Re: “Cop on the Tweet: Chief's Social Media Posts Draw Criticism

Pretending to being socially engaged as a citizen on social media when you are the chief of police is not possible, especially when it is well known that the police search through social media for criminal evidence. Del Pozo can't have it both ways. His intrusion in this manner comes close to misuse of power.

Re: “Border Patrol Arrests Two Mexican Farm Workers in Vermont

The display of hate and ignorance in these comments proves one thing. The US is still a very racist and xenophic country. It will ultimately be the victim of its own unfounded fears.
