Pro-gun nuts, whether or not they believe in religious mythology, often say things like "if you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns", and "if more people had guns, there would be less gun crime." In fact, police departments will tell you, law-abiding gun owners are the main source of illegal guns, through theft and sale into the black market. And if you're the victim of an armed robbery and you whip out a gun, the criminal is likely to shoot first, to avoid getting shot; whereas an unarmed victim is more likely to just get robbed and not killed.  (Apr 16, 2011 | post #26)

PC or Hannaford going out of business?

The new Mall-Wart will not be a threat to Bratt's supermarkets. Most Mall-Wart shoppers are going there for things other than groceries, like clothes & household items. When it's further away in Hinsdale, fewer people from Bratt will go there, especially for things like groceries which they can get just as well without leaving Brattleboro. I have a feeling that this Mall-Wart move may turn out to be a bad investment.  (Apr 16, 2011 | post #73)

Oops! Renewable Energy Costs Oregon Billions

Read what you post, before you comment on it, will you? The renewable energy surcharge amounts to $2.13 per household per month on average; that's not enough to be the determining factor in a household's inability to pay its utility bill. It's truly ridiculous that there are still a few individuals who believe that nothing needs to change, that we can just go on using fossil fuels forever, like it's still the 1950s.  (Apr 16, 2011 | post #6)

Vt ranked as greenest state according to new rankings

It's good to know that Vermont is characterized by pro-active citizens acting on the information that scientific research provides, to prepare for the future. It's also amazing how the United States, alone among industrialized countries, has so many people in denial about climate change, the need for renewable energy, and other sustainability issues. In red states, politics and mythology are put ahead of science and information. It's probably also not a coincidence that this country is in such sharp decline.  (Apr 16, 2011 | post #5)

Krazy Kontest for the Repugnican Nomination

First we had clueless quitter Sarah Pailin turning into a Faux Snooze rotweiler; then Michelle Bachman spewing hate and confusing New Hampshire with Massachusetts. Now we have Donald Trump digging up dead conspiracy theories. What's next, Repugnicans? Barack Obama may only have 50% approval ratings, but with the current competition, he couldn't possibly lose the next election.  (Apr 14, 2011 | post #1)

Jubilant GOP wins the House, falls short of Senate

Republicans think they have invented a time machine, where we can magically go back to a time when America was hard-working and prosperous and respected, without actually working hard or saving and investing or acting respectable. We'll see if it works.  (Nov 5, 2010 | post #68)

Dean, Bankowski on transition team

My my, listen to the extreme-right idea-less blowhards scream. Full of complaints, never any suggestions of how to govern better. Squawk squawk squawk.  (Nov 5, 2010 | post #4)

Vernon polling controversy resolved

That's not actually a state law. Different municipalities have their own rules about how far away the signs have to be. They just can't be inside the polling station. In Townsend there were lots of signs on the town office lawn, of all parties.  (Nov 5, 2010 | post #4)

Time to pull together

Goody two-shoes for you, smug elitist. A lot of people, on the other hand, are tired of being taken to the cleaners by insurance companies and then getting cut off or denied coverage for one excuse or otherWhy would I have to do that? You've made it abundantly clear you're the kind of person who would see an injured person on the ground and just step over themI know, I know, you're not big on moral codes. Live & let die and all that. You got yours, screw everyone else, it's the tea-bagger way. That's what America has come to.  (Nov 4, 2010 | post #20)

Time to pull together

Because the Party of No nixed the public option. The individual mandate was then the only other known way of getting everyone in the system, without which any reform of health insurance is both pointless and impossible. I don't like the individual mandate either. It just funnels even more money to the same crooks. I'll be interested to see if John Boehner has a better idea of how to get everyone into the system.  (Nov 4, 2010 | post #19)

Jubilant GOP wins the House, falls short of Senate

So, after most people just lost a big chunk of their retirement savings in a bad market, are you actually proposing the privatization of SS? You realize, don't you, that the rush of so much money into investments would create a huge bubble, which would of course have to burst at some point, deflating people's retirement savings still further? Or don't you study the markets, as many of us do? Would you also propose borrowing $700b over 10 years to finance extending tax cuts for the rich, even though economists agree that this would not lead to job creation, but only contribute to the national debt? So much for fiscally-responsib le conservatives. Do you also deny the OMB's analysis that the health care reform already passed will save the government money over the next 10 years? Inconvenient, huh? Tea-baggers complain about the deficit, but after all it's just a lot of mindless screaming with no substance behind it. I like balanced budgets; I'd be happy to discuss putting entitlements on a sustainable footing, as well as bringing down the military budget to something our economy can afford. But the tea-baggers aren't going to be any help, they're just another bunch of something-for-noth ing hypocrites.  (Nov 4, 2010 | post #53)
