Politics

Here are a couple short but sweet notes from the Vermont political landscape.

First, I'm a big fan of author and VPR commentator Philip Baruth's blog, Vermont Daily Briefing. His insight and wit are intriguing and fun. Yesterday's post takes the cake. In Tarrant Openly Taunts Workers: “It’s All Mine! Whoo!”, he details the Republican billionaire candidate for Senate's campaign theme song, Bachman Turner Overdrive's Taking Care of Business. The lyrics for the song highlight "a very rich man openly mocking the workers who don’t control their own destinies." Truly amazing and, as Baruth points out, rivals Reagan's attempted usage of Born in the USA.

The second note is pretty glum. Douglas to veto seed bill. Sad day for Vermont. If you want to do something, contact the Governor today to request that he sign S.18, The Farmer Protection Act. 802-828-3333. Click here and here for more information.
