Let's hear it again for our intelligent, compassionate governor, just voted second worst in the country. In a country as rich as this one, there should be nobody living in the street.
I grew up thinking that as time goes on society becomes more enlightened and less superstitious. Silly me.
First, the St. Patricks nonsense. Now this. If this is all they can manage to do in Augusta they ought to just pack up and go home and save us the expense of paying them to fool around.
This is what happens when the inmates run the asylum. The whole thing is probably unconstitutional - from the requirement itself to the proposal to search houses without warrants. Evidently whoever runs this ridiculous little town doesn't have enough to do.
It's frightening to think that someone like this lives anywhere near me.
What makes the mayor think that Lewiston is such a paradise that people from away are flocking to it? Lewiston has a long way to go before it becomes a magnet for newcomers, poor or otherwise.
The ad is misleading in the same way that other Protect Marriage ads have been misleading. The couple was cited for disobeying Vermont's long-standing anti-discrimination ads, not for refusing to perform the marriage. The fact that the ad mentions "Christian beliefs" is an attempt to mislead Mainers into thinking that their religious beliefs will be challenged, when it has been clear from the outset that nobody's religious beliefs will be challenged, and that churches are free to perform the ceremonies or not, as they wish.
As Protect Marriage's position continues to weaken, their advertising continues to descend into misleading scenarios and fearmongering. This time around, Mainers will know better and be able to see beyond the smokescreen; Prop. 1 WILL pass.
And do what-let them die? The attitude of this administration seems to be to try to balance the budget by imposing on those who have the least political power and are the least able to speak for themselves. What an embarrassment this administration is!
It appalls me that you would choose such a negative and ignorant quote - “The city is going to pot with that welfare," Rancourt said. "Immigration is out of hand; it's too much.” to lead this article. It doesn't encourage intelligent debate about the issue, but does reflect the shortsighted and benighted attitude that is detrimental to the future of the city.
