Editorial: GOP–Heartless and reckless?

Posted on March 9, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Initial reports of the GOP’s replacement of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act has ranged from the Washington Post’s characterization of it being “heartless and reckless,” to Republican conservatives vilifying it for being fiscally irresponsible, to Trump labeling it as ‘unbelievably fantastic, so much better than the ruinous Obamacare,’ or something so similarly outrageous that no one takes him seriously.

Letters to the Editor: Energy costs are driving economy

Posted on March 9, 2017 |
By David Van Vleck



Gov. Scott has said (Burlington Free Press, Jan. 20, p. 6A) that Vermont needs more immigrants for budgetary purposes: to pay taxes and produce income for storekeepers. This is good short-term thinking, typical for politicians, but poor long-term thinking and unsustainable over the next 100 years. The reasoning is simple: The population that an area can support depends on natural resources, especially cheap energy, and those resources are decreasing.

Letter to the Editor: Current minimum wage serves as a ticket to poverty

Posted on March 9, 2017 |
By Millard M. Cox



At our Ripton Town Meeting last evening, Rep. Peter Conlon did us the service of visiting to bring us up to date on legislative matters. Thank you, Peter. It was much appreciated. Peter mentioned that the effort to raise the minimum wage in Vermont to $15 per hour has been placed on the back burner for now in order to study the effects of that increase. I believe he meant to examine the effects on business and the Vermont economic climate.

Letter to the Editor: Emphasis should be on regenerative agriculture

Posted on March 9, 2017 |
By Thomas Vanacore



I read with interest John Flowers’ article on Sen. Chris Bray’s legislative initiative S.51 “Consolidated Clean Energy Planning and Economic Opportunity Act.” This all goes back to the Vermont legislature’s stated desire to move away from fossil fuel dependence in order to address global warming, the rationale being that a move to renewable energy would somehow mitigate catastrophic climate change. The problem is none of the favored technological fixes do that.

Letter to the Editor: Giving back to others is part of the American tradition

Posted on March 9, 2017 |
By Edwin James



As the years go by, I find myself more and more worried about our country and the direction it seems to be going. Some of our countrymen seem to be forgetting our heritage and what this country stands for in the world. We hear some politicians are going to make America Great Again! In my opinion it was never not great. Why is half the world trying to come here?
