Jim Webb has decided that it is his time to lead the nation as President of the United States:
"“I understand the odds."
Every Wednesday I deliver about 4000 copies of “The Commons”, a weekly newspaper which is familiar to most of the people reading this.
This Wednesday, something very mysterious happened – most of the papers I delivered have disappeared.
It is as if someone was following me around and removing the papers from the racks I filled just a few minutes before.
I wonder if it could have anything to do with the layoffs at the “Reformer”.
I thought it might be nice to re-read the Declaration of Independence, to look again at how this country of ours began.
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

"Congressman Peter Welch Gets Richer While Depriving Poor Vermonters!"
Do members of the United States Congress get special hints telling them to buy stock at a certain time, and then sell it, to reward them for voting a certain way on a certain Bill?
Chris Christie has the idea that it is his turn to become president of the United States.
"America is tired of hand-wringing, of indecisiveness ... in the Oval Office. And that is why, today, I am proud to announce my candidacy.”
What are rCredits?
The rCredits system is a cooperative mutual credit organization providing online credit card, debit card, and cash card services.
In this economy, it’s hard to find US Dollars to pay for things. With rCredits we can fund what we need, without having to depend on US Dollars. rCredits are simply a way for us to give each other credit in our local community, so that, in effect, there is more money to go around.
You can spend rCredits and be paid with rCredits just as with US Dollars.
WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Peter Welch today issued the following statement following the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision to make same-sex marriage a right in all 50 states:
“The wall of marriage discrimination in America has finally come down. The Supreme Court affirmed today what Vermonters recognized years ago -- that the quality of love between two people is more important than their gender,” Congressman Welch said.
When Peter Shumlin announced he wouldn't be running for Governor again, Rep. Peter Welch announced he would consider becoming the next governor.
He's decided — to run for Congress again. Here is the statement:
Bobby Jindal has announced his intention to become the next President:
"I’m running for President of the United States of America. Join me."
I find it interesting that one of the outcomes of the shooting in Charleston appears to be the dismantling of the imagery that appealed to the shooter. Overnight, the Confederate flag is something for politicians to distance themselves from, and calls for its removal from license plates, statehouses, and other official uses are being acted upon. Long a symbol of southern pride, its days seem numbered.
Dylann Roof probably didn’t anticipate this reaction, but he accomplished it.
