Re: “The Parmelee Post: Gov. Scott: Higher Wages a Slippery Slope to Being Able to Afford to Live in Vermont

Dont let the Grover Norquist wannabe Gov fool you, he couldnt give a damn about struggling Vermonters. Not one bit. He, like all of his Republican cronies are driven only by two things - hate and greed. Every policy decision he makes is about lining his own pockets and the pockets of his wealthy buddies. And dont be fooled into thinking that his objective in not using surplus funds to pay down unfunded pension liability is to help everyday Vermonters on taxes. Hes taken a page out of the Paul Ryan playbook - avoid paying what the state owes to the pension fund so he can use the shortfall to decimate benefits and hopefully break the fund altogether. Phil Scott trys to come across like a nice friendly guy but the truth is, hes just another rotten apple in the festering barrel of ultra right wingers.

Re: “Lunderville to Leave Burlington Electric, Serve as CEDO Director

Lunderville is a smart guy, no doubt about it, but what we saw during his stint as Secretary of Administration is that he's also mean spirited, petty and totally devoid of empathy, compassion and a sense of fair play. That Miro would appoint him says something about Miro's character - or rather lack of character. Its all about money.

Re: “Bernie Sanders to Seek Reelection to U.S. Senate

And the long con continues and the grifter and his family just keep on keeping on.

Re: “Walters: Scott, Lawmakers Clear Path to Special Session

No chance of keeping Gibbs on a leash - make no mistake about it, Gibbs is running the 5th floor with his hyper partisan my way or the highway mentality. Scott and his flying monkeys have not negotiated in good faith with anyone nor have they engaged in any meaningful discussions with the legislature until making half baked, really stupid proposals at the last minute, proposals based on faulty assumptions. Its time the Dems grow a spine, refuse to budge on their reasonable budget and tax legislation and let Scott shut down the government if he refuses meaningful compromise.

Re: “Walters: Advocacy Groups Try to Pressure Scott

Will it be Coca Cola or clean water?
Seriously? Scott is a Republican. There isn't a Republican alive that gives a hoot about clean water or the environment.

Re: “Betrayed: Can Gun-Rights Activists 'Take Back Vermont'?

These nuts are absolutely the current day take back Vermont mob - they are irrationally combative against common sense gun laws that are supported by the majority of Vermonters. They scream my rights are being violated my rights are being violated without thinking about or caring about the rights of the majority of Vermonters who actually care about the safety of others - much like the anti gay crowd felt that their rights to discriminate outweighed the rights of gay people. Quite frankly, most of the gun nuts that Ive met are the same people that were involved in the anti gay take back Vermont movement.
Im a veteran, I own hunting guns, Im not anti gun - Im pro rational, common sense gun laws.

Re: “Vermont Senate Guts the House Plan to Fund Waterways Cleanup

Its pretty evident that clean waterways are pretty much last on the list of priorities for the Senate. Its irresponsible and sad.
