Re: “Vallee Accuses Sanders of Seeking Legal Retribution 'To Make a Point'

Im no fan of Bernie Sanders but Valllee is a crook and everyone has known this for years.

Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Seeing Through the Haze

Tom Andersons position is just puzzling but typical of law enforcement. A high percentage of Vermonters currently use pot on a regular basis and the likelihood that a big number of the folks who dont are suddenly going to be rushing to pot shops to take up using it is just absurd. Im all for coming up with a reliable way to test for impairment but really, those that are going to drive around stoned are already doing it and the cops seem to be able to figure out when they are impaired and arrest them.
The long and short of this is that prohibition doesnt work and is really just stupid. There isnt any shortage of pot or pot smokers so we might as well regulate it and tax it.

Re: “Family of Drug-Addicted Woman Whose Obit Went Viral Sues for Answers

A junkie died and now the family is trying to blame everyone but the junkie. Why is this not a surprise?

Re: “Supreme Court Orders New Trial for Former Senator Norm McAllister

So, even in Vermont rape is perfectly ok, encouraged even if youre a lawmaker or wealthy and the victim is poor. This is another disgusting opinion from our disgusting Supreme Court. The state shouldnt bother retrying old Norm, the Vermont Supreme Court will never, ever let a conviction stand. All Vermonters should be ashamed.

Re: “Scott, Zuckerman and Fellow Incumbents Dominate Vermont Public Media Poll

Ah well, its not surprising that youd consider the truth as being unhinged.

Anyone who votes Republican is certainly no better than turn-a-blind-eye pre-WWII Germans. In case you didnt notice, Neo-Fascism has taken over US Government and become the guiding philosophy of American conservatives.

You can certainly try to spin Scott as a moderate but the truth is, he moderates only to get elected. He, Gibbs and the rest of his flying monkeys on the 5th floor would have Vermont politics looking a lot like Texas if they thought they could get away with it.

And really, to compare Scott to Howard Dean is low, even for you.

Re: “Scott, Zuckerman and Fellow Incumbents Dominate Vermont Public Media Poll

Scott is just another right wing conservative who, like all conservatives, is driven by nothing but hate and greed. The Vermont Democrats who vote for him are either just stupid and believe the false narrative that he has put forth, painting himself as a moderate or they just dont care. These are the same type of people who claimed not to know as the Nazis exterminated millions.

Re: “Iconic Tech Firm MyWebGrocer to Be Bought by Florida Company

It would be interesting to know how much, if any, of Vermont taxpayers money went to this company over the years either through tax breaks or small business development incentives.
As for there being no planned job losses, well thats more than likely a lie. These Vermont companies always sell out and always state that there will be no job losses but of course, there always are.
This sale has noting to do with serving customers better and has everything to do with making a buck. Why do they feel the need to lie about it?
