Re: “Vermont House Approves Budget as Governor Digs In

Gov. No-New-Taxes would raise taxes on half the towns in Vermont even under his so-called fiscally responsible budget. The remaining towns would would join the tax party next year with a hefty post-hangover tax bill once the bonus money is gone. These are facts the governor and his supporters choose to ignore.

Meanwhile, debts accrue that the right clearly has no intention of honoring because of their war on anyone left of Ted Cruz. And Repub legislators scramble to backtrack on a budget they already approved. It would be funny if it weren't so consequential.

It's time for the legislature to stand up to right-wing bullying tactics.

Re: “Keurig Green Mountain Lays Off 35 Vermont Employees

"Stop trolling the internet to advocate for your partisan Prog beliefs and get back to work."

Yeah, leave trolling pontification to conservatives without jobs.

Re: “Despite Opponents' Efforts, F-35s Still Scheduled for Burlington

There's no greater irony than jingoist celebration over ear-piercing Cold War machinery while simultaneously complaining about the volume of the voices opposed to it. It seems that "freedom" has a strange new definition.

Re: “Walters: Team Scott Turns Up the Heat on Lawmakers

"There are times when local control is not the best choice..."

It seems that it's not the best choice only when conservatives float a proposal.

If liberals governed this way, the right would be donning torches at rallies demanding heads. Maybe just once the reactionaries could treat situations the same whether their ideological friends OR foes rolled them out.

Re: “As Scott Signs Historic Vermont Gun Laws, Protesters Call Him a ‘Traitor’

Would not have considered voting for a Republican prior to this move. This changes things. Now it's clear where real courage lives and is worthy of support. Ditto for the leaders of the House & Senate.

Looking forward to the courts affirming the full legality of this legislation and sending the orange-wearing entitlement mentality a clear message (hint: it appears within the first three words of the Second Amendment).

Re: “Burlington Police Department to Roll Out New Emergency Response Vehicle

I applaud the focus on non-lethal intervention. We're all well-served by removing lethality from decisions made at one moment in time. Nice work, BPD!
