Who Told Vermont To Be Stupid?
Forbes ^ | 9/01/2013 | James Conca

Posted on 09/01/2013 3:54:38 PM PDT by Vince Ferrer

In a week when we celebrated one of the greatest speeches in history, we also saw discrimination win over science. Again. Ideology defeated reason. As a scientist, I was saddened in a way I am not usually wont.

The Great State of Vermont threw away cheap clean energy this week out of ignorance and fear. Vermont chose to be stupid, and will hurt the environment as a sidebar.

Uh, the same bozos who elected Leaky Leahy?

I say let them chop up their Sugar Maples for firewood.

...another state destroyed by invading hippies and New Yorkers...I feel for the bastion of conservatives in the Northeast Kingdom, but the rest can enjoy their soon-to-spike electric bills.

Isn’t this the same state who elected Bernie Sanders?

Starting in the 60’s filthy,drug ridden hippies focused on Vermont as a new Shangri La.It’s close to their homes in Boston and Westchester Country and was sparsely populated enough to easily take over,which is exactly what they did.Lesbians in Birkenstocks and 1960’s bombers with gray ponytails now choke the streets of Burlington,the state’s only real city.

About 100,000 committed Conservatives could flip Vermont to sanity again (if they were willing to move there).

It is impossible to argue with stupidity. And it is not just Vermont it is most of America.

They should all pay much more for electricity. There should be huge costs associated with mothballing working electric plants and electing socialists.

What do you expect from the state that elects the likes of Leaky Leahy and Bernie the Commie Sanders. It’s like the really off the rails Commies from A$$achusetts migrated north to Vermont and set up shop. If you’ve ever been to Burlington, you have an idea of what East Berlin looks like. What an absolute dump of a city. Must all be on the dole there.

Entergy inc to close the nuclear plant providing 70% of the state’s energy, it does not appear the Vermont state government has a say in this so I don’t know what’s up with the headline.

There’s not enough work there, and what jobs that are there don’t pay much. NH has/had the free state movement & that did not amount to anything. A lot of well-off retired folks are moving to the 3 northern New England states & they seem to be turning the place more blue:(

There are a few thousand conservatives in Essex County...way out in the upper right corner of the state. Even liberals balk at 50 below zero.

They pride themselves in ‘stupid’ as do those in Santa Cruz as ‘weird’. Santa Cruz is ahead.

I live in Vermont and I can tell you that the VT. State government has been in a legal fight with Entergy for the past four years. Entergy got the okay to keep running the plant for the next twenty years, despite its being almost forty years old. No one saw Entergy giving up and decommissioning the plant. The hippies were literally dancing in the streets here.

650 people are going to be out of work, power bills are going to skyrocket, property taxes are going to go through the roof, but so long as the fish aren’t glowing we’re supposed to be happy. “Sigh”

No one needed to tell Vermont to be stupid, it comes naturally to them.

“Entergy inc to close the nuclear plant providing 70% of the state’s energy, it does not appear the Vermont state government has a say in this so I don’t know what’s up with the headline”
That’s my understanding also.

It’s sad what’s happened to your state.

Goddamn hippies, I wonder why they chose Vermont.

Jefferson County in the Olympic peninsula, Washington state, is another infested area according to a freeper that lives there. That explains it’s heavily rat voting pattern despite being rural. Like Vermont, another good place for a commune I guess.

They ruined San Fransisco too, that town didn’t used to be the butt of every joke like it is now.
