Re: “Notorious Transient Accused of Assaulting Burlington Business Owner

Mentally ill or just unruly; the guy can't go around slugging people.117 arrests, eight for felony crimes... and they release him? This guy should not be on the street.

Re: “Fight in Burlington's City Hall Park Ends in Stabbing

"At the time of the stabbing, Lucas was awaiting sentencing for domestic assault and violations of conditions of release, police said. Hed been arrested previously for aggravated assault, domestic assault, theft of services, unlawful restraint, disorderly conduct and disclosure of sexually explicit images without consent."

So WTF was he doing on the street? Seriously... did he post bail? And if so, why was that even an option?

Re: “Leahy, Sanders Condemn Senate Obamacare Repeal Vote

So here's the process from here. The Senate puts out something everybody hates but can get 51 votes with Pence.
Then it goes to Reconciliation where anything good will be stripped out of it.
John McCain made a grand speech. But this sausage factory ain't about to straighten up and fly right.

Re: “Ditching Donald: Will Trump Doom Vermont Republicans?

I would just like to respond to the Addison County Republican chair Jon Christiano, who suggests that guys have "all said similar things".
That is not so.
I have strong political opinions; this post isn't about them. It's about the basic standards of decency that are, for me, a large part of what being a Man is all about.
My respect for women is not dependent on cameras. It's based in my most basic principles in general, and as regards sex and romance in particular.
I have been married to an amazing person who is a woman for 23 years. This is my first and only marriage. Despite challenges our marriage endures because it is based on mutual respect.
Before I was married I was very fortunate in my romantic life and enjoyed the company of a number of different women. For me, a big part of the enjoyment of these relationships was the excitement of mutually desired sex. "Grabbing" women "by the pussy" is the antithesis of the idea of mutuality. It's not what a healthy Man wants from or with Women.
If Addison County Republican chair Jon Christiano thinks otherwise I feel genuinely sorry for him, and wonder what the women in his life ... like his mother or any daughters he might have...would have to say about his opinion of what being a man entails..
And I also feel obliged to point out that any transgression... either physical or verbal... against the women in my life would be met with a blunt, proportional response.

Re: “Dean Doubles Down on Trump Cocaine Comment

Trump denies having allergies or a cold.
Heck, he's even denied sniffling.
I found the denials odd.

Re: “Unarmed Winooski Man Shot Seven Times in Deadly Police Shooting

Body cameras are only useful if the footage is released.
The article is silent on that point.
Will the footage be released?
