It never ceases to amaze me how Alden Graves can use a nice article about home town news for his usual Bush-Bashing. Every article, like clock-work, Bush bad,Tea Party bad, Conservatives bad,Republicans bad-how long do we have to put up with this~Bennington Banner, get rid of this A-hole once and for all and get some new blood!

WE get it Graves, you want Big Daddy government to run and control all aspects of peoples lifes.We would be better off if things went back to your friends time when as you stated people helped each other and didn't need the government you want to run their lives. Everybody wants healthcare but not the kind where government runs it. I sometimes probaly buy something that I don't really need but it's MY money that I worked for and I can spend it as I please and not have to answer to people like you who believe I should give my money to other people who haven't worked for it. I know there are some people who really need help but I also know there are many out there just looking for something for nothing. Maybe Obama should be getting them jobs instead of haveing 48.1 million on food stamps and keeping them needy so Big Daddy can give them what they want. I do give to as many charities I feel need it and try to help, i give it because I want to help if I can. Not being taxed more so the government can give it to who they say needs it.
