Re: “Wrongful Eviction Lawsuit Against City of Burlington Clears Hurdle

Tweet @MiroBTV to thank him (not) for running such a regressive city.

Miro (the alleged mayor) is the clown who exploits the less fortunate for his own political aims. He puts on a good show for those who don't realize what really he is all about.

Besides your Tweeting his account (which he will eventually block you out of if you dare criticize him but do it anyway before he's on to you) send an email to: mayor@burlingtonvt.gov.

Register your protest. Tell your friends.

Re: “Chief Praises Officer for Not Shooting at Suspect in a Car

Show of hands - who wants police restraint in the face of growing crime?

[http://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/story/n…]

When our wonderful police are fighting crime and thugs, we the law-abiding taxpayers want no restraint.

Who is holding Burlington Police Chief Brandon del Pozo to this new soft-on-crime standard?

The mayor?

Council president?

If either one or both of their families were being threatened, would they preach restraint? Of course they wouldn't. Not on your life. They'd want the cops to come fully ready to sacrifice their lives.

They preach restraint because they think their liberal political base likes it. Oh, the base loves it because talk is cheap and it's so sexy to sound progressively against what they like to call police excess - until, of course, some thug is assaulting or robbing them or their relatives.

The police chief knows this.

If some lunatic is out of control, we want our great cops to do whatever necessary to neutralize the threat, for our good, our children's good, for every law-abiding citizen's good.

The law-abiding, taxpaying public is 100 percent behind our police - if they are tough on crime.

We don't want restraint when we are confronted by dregs.

Re: “FBI Continues to Investigate Jane Sanders’ Burlington College Land Deal

If Jane Sanders diverted college funds to her daughter's school, then her potential criminality related to any false claims made to support a college-development loan could pale.

Re: “Letters to the Editor (4/19/17)

Clean up Church Street? Take a bite out of crime?

Hats off to ex-deputy state prosecutor Ben Luna for being idealistic enough to think that Burlington's power elite would have such a concern.

Murders? Where? Stabbings? Keep on moving, nothing to see here.

The truth is, Mayor Mirror (sic) Whineburger (sic) has a bigger priority - coming up with a design for a new city flag.

Can't make it up.

Meanwhile, clear thinkers such as Luna recommend a police station at the corner of Church and Cherry.

Not a bad idea, but in reality just a way to spend more money on a meaningless project. Unless cops are given the OK to, sorry, arrest thugs, all the police substations will make little difference.

Great idea in theory, but as Luna has figured out, Whineberger and his safe-space fellow city councilors are more concerned with finding the Church/Bank street vagrants a place to harass the public, lest they - the so-called city officials - come off as anti-welfare.

The mayor is so enamored of my ideas he has blocked me from his Twitter account. A little sensitive to the truth, mayor?

Re: “Burlington City Council to Consider Biking and Walking Master Plan

If you want to understand why the mayor would spend $2.5 million of your hard-earned tax money to paint some bike lanes, you need to understand what his ilk - and the city councilors - do to retain their cushy jobs.

It's called keeping the liberal welfare class satiated.

Elections in Burlington are about keeping the city the way Bernie Sanders left it - in a mess.

The way these clowns keep their offices is by following the Willie-Sutton method: Go where the votes are.

And where is that? In the liberal enclaves of Burlington.

Re: “Critics Crowd Burlington Meeting to Oppose Building-Height Increase

The height is a diversion to the real issue - spending $22 million in taxpayer money to reopen streets that were closed once with millions in, yup, taxpayer money.

The insanity never stops.

Don't be fooled by the height - it's an ancillary issue designed to keep your eyes off the real scandal - $22 million in good tax money after bad.

Re: “Burlington Police Chief Appointee Faces Questions

"Weinberger said Thursday that he wishes he’d known about del Pozo’s racial profiling paper, but that he’s unshaken in his support for the 40-year-old Brooklyn native."

But the story never splains why the mayor wishes he'd known. Why does he wish he had known? What difference would it have made? Any? Why or why not?

Weinberger has a tin political ear and always has. He's vulnerable because his supporters - the leftists - are always a whisker away from cashing him in for someone else who can give them a placarding cause to while away their idle time.
