Re: “Rope-a-Dope: Scott Elusive on Future of Pot Bill

"He doesn't have a good grasp on the number of people ticketed for marijuana possession."

Re: “Walters: Did the Governor Just Wave the White Flag?

As John as said here, this was a political move more than anything. This had nothing to do with education. Both sides knew that they could not change union negotiations in the middle of them by waving a wand. This was a grandstanding affair by the governor, showing how tough he could be for his base and election next year. He was clever to use the ruse of property tax relief, for reasons we all know, when he was really trying to destroy collective bargaining and the unions and take that $26 million and put it somewhere else and the property tax payer might have got $10 or $20 bucks back. He was also clever in doing it at the last minute. Yet, I wonder if this was not something else too. Since when does a governor order a legislature to do something as though he or she is boss of it?

Re: “House Dems Narrowly Win Vote On Teacher Health Care Negotiations

"The governor was pushing a plan that came as a result of the Republican-despised ACA."

Oh, they like big government alright just as long as it benefits them, and only them, in a big way.

Re: “Verexit? Secession Movement Gains Steam After Trump Election

"what a riot- VERMONT CARRIED TRUMP so guess who's fault that is....besides Bernie's!"

Vermont carried Trump? WTF?

I am among those 21%, though they did not poll me:( We have not been a country for decades, just the United States of Corporations, and its time to leave it.

Re: “'Mob' Attacks Middlebury Prof and Controversial Speaker Charles Murray

"If the American Enterprise Institute and their nefarious Koch Overlords had conspired together for months to make speech police activists look bad, "

I wonder who these outside agitators were and if they were even connected to Middlebury or if the enterprise group brought them in to make the lefties look bad in the comment sections.

Re: “'Mob' Attacks Middlebury Prof and Controversial Speaker Charles Murray

"Morally Superior Ultra Left"

I wonder how many of these "outside agitators" were police informants trying to stir up the crowds in order to bust the ringleaders of the protests. No matter what, I do not condone what happened here.

Re: “Scott 'Resistant' to Using Vermont Guard for Immigration Roundup

"This state is in bad shape.. low employment, our young adults leaving the state, high amount on welfare, refugees comes first instead of Vermonters, liberals in control of the legislation, wants more Vermont citizens, yup more higher taxes.."

Prove it.
