Editorial: 'Deficits? Nonsense. Tax cuts will be so great, it'll never happen.'

Posted on October 18, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



The U.S. Treasury Department announced this week that the federal deficit jumped a whopping 17 percent this past year, posting a deficit of $779 billion. That’s an increase of $113 billion over the $666 billion recorded in 2017, and it puts the deficit on pace to top $1 trillion annually before the next presidential election. Such a pronouncement used to shock Republicans out of their wits.

The Treasury’s own analysis suggest the rapid rise in the deficit has been caused by the $1.5 trillion tax cuts passed by Trump and the Republican Congress.

Editorial: A step closer to depravity

Posted on October 18, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



When President Trump first tries to cover up the blatant killing and gruesome dismemberment of a journalist critical of the Saudi government and then, when denial isn’t plausible, tries to pretend it wasn’t carried out under the orders of Saudi Arabia’s effective ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman but by rogue killers with the government, he moves America one step closer to the depravity demonstrated by the worst kind of dictatorial governments.

Ways of Seeing by Joanna Colwell: Love, and listen to, your neighbor

Posted on October 18, 2018 |
By Joanna Colwell



Colwell, Joanna ONLINE.jpg

My friend posted a photo of two men holding up a sign that read, “Love Your Neighbor. Even if they don’t: Look Like You. Think Like You. Love Like You. Pray Like You. Vote Like You.” My thoughts kept coming back to this sign. Finally I had to respond, “Even if you are voting to take away my human rights, I still gotta love you?” My friend responded to my comment that he had it on good authority, based on most of the world’s spiritual traditions, that yes, I do have to love that person.

Letter to the editor: Hardy knows school funding

Posted on October 18, 2018 |
By Dave Silberman and Eilat Glikman



Education funding has, unfortunately, turned into one of the more contentiously political issues facing the Vermont legislature. This past year, disagreement over the issue brought us two budget vetoes and an unprecedented near shut-down of state government. Yet many of our elected officials (and even more of the candidates running for office) have a very superficial understanding of school budgets, offering tidy sound bites about “quality” or “affordability,” but very little by way of thoughtful analysis.
