Re: “Welcome Wagon: Vermont Pays Up as Internet Migrants Settle In

So, our tax dollars are subsidizing people that can afford to come here and pay $350k and $450k for their homes while while many of us struggle to afford to have our homes remodeled, weatherized, painted, etc. partially due to low wages and the high tax burden that come with living in Vermont. We middle income people continue to get the shaft as our pockets are picked by the state for the benefit of others. Im okay (up to a point) with my money going to benefit the poor and help them get on their feet but this, subsidizing the well heeled, is another thing.

Re: “Media Note: Kurt Wright to Take Over WVMT Morning Show

Just what Vermont needs, Kurt Wright on the radio spewing his right wing nonsense and trashing up the Vermont airways. I guess the right wingers ( there is no such thing as a moderate Republican, they are all deplorable!) dont think they have enough representation on right wing talk radio.
In any event, he lost his election and hopefully well never see him in elected office here again. Maybe he should move to Alabama or Missippi. Those people are way more receptive to his political philosophy and world view.

Re: “Walters: House Panel Approves Abortion Rights Bill

Why is the legislature spending time on this do-nothing bill? Once again our legislature reacts on an emotional level to a non-issue (in this state anyway) rather than tackling real problems that need to be solved. If ever a womans right to obtain an abortion is threatened in Vermont, Ill be fighting right along with those in favor of the right to choose but until then, how about focusing on actual issues?

Re: “House Passes Plan to Delay Some Forced School District Mergers

As long as Vermonters continue to fight against any and all efforts to control school spending they really need to stop their incessant whining about property taxes. Having all of these teeny tiny schools with teeny tiny graduating classes is just really, really expensive, stupid and self indulgent.

Re: “Max Misch Pleads Not Guilty to Possessing High-Capacity Magazines

Col. Cashman its always amusing to read the gyrations that an extreme right-winger such as yourself will use to defend and condone the behavior of every other right-winger, no matter their behavior. Whats really interesting is how you continuously show your true character (or lack thereof). If it was a lefty breaking the law youd be singing a different tune. But its good to know that you condone breaking the law (as long as its a right-winger doing the law breaking), racial harassment of a public official, etc. As youre the one bringing Nazis into the conversation, Id suggest you take a good long look in the mirror.

Re: “Vermont to Allow State Workers to Bring Their Infants to Work

Oh for Gods sake, now the office becomes a daycare center. As it is now, people without children in my office are picking up the slack for parents who are constantly out with snow days, school in service days, school holidays and out with children who have the sniffles (some of these children are well into their teens and way past the age when daddy or mommy needs to stay home to tend to their sniffles). Now, as parents are allowed to bring babies and toddlers into the workplace, were going to have to pick up the slack while they attend to their little darlings every need during the workday. Further, babies ARE disruptive and anyone who says they arent is just lying. The office has been one of the few places people can go where they dont have to listen to someone elses screaming kid and now thats kaput. Why should I have to work in the middle of a daycare center because someone else made the decision to have children? And yes, I dont like children and like even less the parents who inflict their children on the rest of us.

Re: “Charm Offensive: Team Scott Reaches Out to the Legislature

We have been open and approachable, but apparently there's a perception that we have not,"

What universe is Young residing in? Scott and Governor Gibbs have hardly been approachable and continually attempted to legislate by ambush and Republicans in the legislature allowed them to get away with it. Hopefully the minority will get pretty beat up this session to perhaps teach them that it wasnt the best way to behave as Democratic veto proof majorities will become more common and its doubtful that Republicans will gain the majority in Vermont any time soon - if ever.
