A majority of our progressive/socialist neighbors in Montpelier, including the satelite socialist Bernie, want to mandate a $15 per hour minimum wage. It is an enticing marketing concept. It is designed to convince the largest group of voters to support and elect them, because They Care ™. What do these folks actually mean when they …
Ha! Ha, ha! The State has literally no idea who is voting. None. The best we’ve got are the great town clerks and volunteers who, might often, recognize a.voter or two, here and there.
Beyond that, without any identification, we could have platoons of Russians voting and we wouldn’t be the wiser.
Making a stand on the “who’s a resident” nonsense? Only by virtue of the size of the town did the Victory case come to light. Period.

I’m sure the Secretary of State will be looking into these matters soon.

Think about that for a moment, then read the article.

For the record. I’ve received no replies to the email I sent out to about a dozen Reps and Senators a week ago, asking how to explain their decision to my young adults. Neighborly? You be the judge.
A Reader’s Comment: A Facebook visitor asked why I didn’t list VGNP as a pro-gun site. I answered that VGNP is pro rights. The gun thing is just really pressing in our lives up here currently and, I feel a need to share my thoughts on the subject. In particular, infantilizing our young adults. (I’m …
For folks who are concerned with courteous and thoughtful representation in our state: It would seem a motion was made, at our state house, to postpone voting on the contentious S.55 for two weeks, presumably, to receive public input. That courtesy was denied.
