Gov. Phil Scott recently attacked Vermont GOP leadership for “continu[ing] with what I perceive as white supremacy dominating, racial inequity, and so forth.” That leadership’s sole offense?

The total of the two pension funds and expected OPEB obligations went from $4.637 billion a year ago to the present $5.657 Billion. That’s an increase in required expenditures of over a billion dollars in a single year. How did we get to this dismal situation?
In the weeks since the November presidential election, numerous liberals, leftists, and other opponents of President Donald Trump have called for a purge of him and his supporters from public life. Just days ahead of the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on Jan. 20, those purges have begun in earnest.
Since the dawn of civilization, the tactics of those who seek absolute power are the same: demonize and dehumanize your political opponents.
