Victor Nuovo: Burke and the English Constitution

Posted on April 19, 2018 |
By Victor Nuovo



Nuovo, Victor ONLINE.jpg

Editor’s note: This is the 11th in a series of essays about political liberalism and conservatism and the two-party system.

Edmund Burke (1730–97) was born in Dublin before Ireland was an independent republic. His father was a successful lawyer, a Protestant, and a member of the Church of Ireland, the Irish counterpart to the Church of England. He was educated at Trinity College in Dublin, which was then a staunch Protestant institution. He began his career as a writer.

Editorial: Bottom line on minimum wage

Posted on April 19, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



Bill H.302 — currently within the jurisdiction of the House Committee on General, Housing & Military Affairs — calls for raising the state’s minimum wage from the current $10.50 per hour to $15 per hour by 2026. A similar bill, S.40, passed the Senate back in mid-February. Even if supporters pass the House bill, and compromise legislation is reached with the Senate in time to send a bill to Gov. Scott’s desk, the governor has misgivings about the initiative and has said in the past that he would veto the legislation.

Editorial: Needless nastiness in Vermont

Posted on April 19, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



In a nod to the journalistic admonishment to always read past the headline (which is particularly troublesome in today’s era of reading just headlines, Twitter feeds and shout-outs on social media), there’s the story of Gov. Phil Scott meanly vetoing a bill that “regulates children’s exposure to toxic chemicals.” I mean, how could he! Everyone wants to limit children’s exposure to harmful substances; why not Vermont’s governor? And he seems so rational on so many other issues, like gun control.

Exactly.
