Opinion: Canadian friends invite me to move north

Posted on March 10, 2016 |
By Peter Grant



Canadian friends are inviting me to move to Canada before Trump has a wall built, paid for by Canada.

No one has asked how Trump will force Mexico to build a wall. How many bombs will it take before Trump realizes that Mexico can’t afford to restrain its criminals, much less pay for a wall? Does Trump think before engaging his mouth?

I remember when people around the world were laughing with puzzlement when Reagan was elected back in 1980.

By Elizabeth Hewitt of VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — Vermont’s four candidates for governor agree that something needs to be done about Vermont Health Connect, and now both Republican candidates have made campaign promises to abandon the exchange.

Opinion: A Comment on the Political Scene

Posted on March 10, 2016 |
By Lawrence Jones



Once upon a dreary time,

Those who would be president

Tapped the country’s discontent

To make a brand new paradigm.

 

Two candidates talked policy,

And with each other disagreed.

Though each, of course, wants to succeed,

Neither descends to lunacy.

 

Six or eight, though, parody

An elementary schoolyard brawl.

Except for two, they all look small,

And most should be in custody!
