Re: “Vermont Democrats OK Staff Union, Elect New Leaders

Adam, youre a pretty good example of the fact that people like you on the extreme left are just as toxic as those on the far right. There isnt a snowballs chance in Hell that moderate Democrats are going to jump on board the progressive crazy train and the bile that you spew certainly isnt going to pursuade anyone to get on board with your political pipe dreams.

Re: “Vermont Democrats OK Staff Union, Elect New Leaders

And with the election of Terje Anderson the Prog takeover of the Vermont Democratic Party is complete. There is no longer any room under the tent for moderate Democrats. Its pretty sad.

Re: “UVM Student Announces Burlington City Council Run

The kid has a pretty good chance of winning. Burlington has a history of electing vapid, entitled progressives with no experience or record of accomplishment. It would be funny if it weren't so pathetic. Hopefully the voters will send this Bernie Sanders wanna be packing back where he came from. We need serious people to help solve serious problems, not just another empty progressive suit.

Re: “Family Describes Troubled Life of DCF Shooter Herring

"Her poor family did not need this pain."

Seriously? What about Lara Sobel's family's pain? While you're wringing your hands and crying crocodile tears for Jody Herring there are 2 little girls that no longer have their mother, a husband who no longer has his wife, parents and a sister that have had one of the bright lights of their lives brutally extinguished. Jody Herring knew exactly what she was doing and she deserves to spend the rest of her life in prison.

Re: “The Brazile Brouhaha: New Book Underscores Strife In Democratic Ranks

Doug, whether or not you take me seriously is really of supreme indifference to me (and, it would seem that as you felt compelled to respond to my comment, you took me somewhat seriously) and yes, I am suggesting that a third of the Vermont population is feeble minded. As Bernie Sanders was an abject couch surfing failure at everything he ever did until becoming an extreme left wing politician and as he has been in politics for a couple of decades with very little record of accomplishment, I'd have to say those that support him and subscribe to his very unserious "everything free" positions are a bit addled. Further, if Sanders' policies were to be enacted in Vermont with the accompanying tax increases I'm pretty sure that his support would be in the toilet. Its pretty easy to support such policies as long as you're not having to pay for them. I would think that you of all people Doug would understand the difference between serious practical solutions to our national problems and feel good, pie in the sky hogwash.
Rightly or wrongly, Americans are not willing to be taxed a huge percentage of their hard earned wages to pay for the policies of the far left. The strength of Republicans everywhere outside New England and the West coast is a pretty good indicator of that.

Re: “The Brazile Brouhaha: New Book Underscores Strife In Democratic Ranks

There are a lot of folks who believe the DNC backed Clinton," acknowledges Vermont Democratic Party chair Faisal Gill. "

The DNC should have backed Clinton. Sanders is not and never has been a Democrat. The DNC should have never allowed him to run as a Dem and he should have had enough integrity NOT to attempt to use the Democratic Party and should have instead run as an Independent, a Progressive or a Democratic Socialist. But then again, Sanders is hardly a paragon of integrity. He's just an opportunist/con man that has been feeding off the adoration of his feeble minded supporters but offering no real or practical solutions to the nations problems.

"The wounds of 2016 are nowhere close to healing yet," says Terje Anderson, who supported Sanders' presidential bid and now serves as one of Vermont's DNC members.

Why is Anderson one of Vermont's DNC members? If he supported Sanders, he is obviously NOT a real Democrat and should be working with the Vermont Progs instead.

The extreme left is just as bad as the extreme right and Anderson and the rest of the Sanders supporters have more in common with the Tea Party than they have with actual Democrats. They are just the other side of the extreme coin.

Re: “Mexican Restaurant Agave Coming to Maple Tree Place

How about calling this something other than a "Mexcian" restaurant? There is so much more to Mexican food than tacos, taco salads and burritos that the moniker for a place like this does the term "Mexican" a disservice.
