New soda tax
New gas tax
New property tax
Has Shumlin and the VT Legislature missed anything?
Oh yeah, if it causes you suffering you can kill yourself!

People in Verment arent adjusted to high Taxs yet?
#4 Feb 14, 2013
You think Vermonters are little bit upset, read the comments on this WCAX story.
Vt. lawmakers may pump up gas tax

It's for the children so just stop crying and pay.
Part of the transporation fund is used for education so shut the hell up and pay more and more, it's for the children who will need to leave the state after they graduate school because of no jobs and high priced housing because of the stop development tree huggers.
nationwide state and local taxes in 1970 $128 billion
in 2013 $2.7 trillion
If they had just risen at the inflation rate they should be only $757 billion
America, a nation of financially illiterate emotional basket cases with no problem solving skills throwing tantrums.

Well thank God if it IS for the children, that is the one reason I agree with raising taxes.....but I don't believe you Governor Shumlin, I don't think it's about the welfare of our children at all! I think government use children as a smoke screen.

Total U.S. credit market debt (government and private) grew from about $1.5 trillion in 1970 to $5 trillion in 1980 to over $55 trillion presently.
Old people are still in denial their ponzi scheme economy for over 30 years is about to implode.
Vermont needs to lower it's cost of living big time by starting with cutting school spending in half and overhauling the zoning laws to drive down the cost of housing and dump act 250.

"Old people are still in denial their ponzi scheme economy for over 30 years is about to implode."
-the unconstitutional Ponzi scheme of the banksters started in 1913 it's called the (non-federal)'Federal' Reserve Act, 20 years later they had the Emergency of March 9, 1933 and Bankers Holiday and took away the gold backing, and right after they killed JFK they took the silver money away so now there is no lawful U.S. currency/money at all, just a Huge phony Dept the banksters contrived and foisted on to We the Sheeple
"Vermont needs to..."
-secede from the union, deport eliminate the flatlanders ninnies and twits

where in the constitution does it give the states the right to put people in school prisons who are under 18 years old who haven't done a thing besides live in the state ?
Forced indoctrination into the cult of american stupidty is all it amounts to and training to follow orders from people in supposed authority who violate the childrens rights every day.

idjit, no law mandates people have to have their kids go to govt. school facilities in the first place
Ever hear of HOMESCHOOLING?
There are plenty who do that and I know some who do and their children are smarter than average as evidenced in testings and the fact that National Spelling and Geometry Bees etc. tend to be won OFTEN by home schooled ones.
The parents who do homeschool or use private schooling are forced to pay the local school tax even tho their children don't go to the govt. schools- THAT's something We the People ought to fight, and we'd be able to shoot it down completely if EVERYONE took their kids out of the G-d Public Fool System
BTW, neither the federal Constitution nor any State Constitution grants any Rights! Those documents Enumerate our Rights. Where Rights come from is pointed out in the first part of the Declaration of Independence, and the key tenets of that document/engagement are legally incorporated into the federal Constitution via Article VI clause 1
Home Schooling is Growing Ever Faster

ever heard of being able to afford to home school ?
all you posted was wealthy people can buy their kids way out of government school prisons.Over 1/3rd of the kids get free lunch so it's not like their parent can quit work and stay home.
What's it lke to be a mental midget ?

-I don't know, EWE Tell Me!
When ewe ASSUME ewe make an ASS out of U says ME
I never said anything about wealthy people, I said I know people who homeschool, they use the programs of dvds that kids watch showing a teacher in a classroom and are somewhat interactive. These are reasonably priced teaching lessons of dvds and books etc. that many middle class and lower middle class people use.
Ewe obviously are a product of the Public Fool System and probably a dropout. Logically ewe ought to support homeschooling as the best alternative to the system ewe rightfully despise but are so stubbornly ignorant and negative that apparently nothing would please ewe

In NY it is legal to carry marajuana but illegal to carry a large soda. Can we all agree that the world is messed up?
#15 Feb 18, 2013
and I call them wealthy, just because your definition of wealthy differs from mine don't mean jack sheet considering you are a member of a financially illiterate soceity.
#16 Feb 18, 2013
Try getting your facts straight dummy.
#17 Feb 18, 2013
That is a great idea. With a declining population, Vermont would be no more in a matter of generations.
#18 Feb 18, 2013
. You wish resident blowhard. Carrying 25 grams or less in NY has been decriminalized. Now try to keep up.
#19 Feb 18, 2013
Ignorance of the law is no excuse and believe me, you are very ignorant.
#20 Feb 19, 2013
Update, add to that a new property tax and heating fuel tax. If this isnít Socialism than what is it?
