The Vermont Chamber of Commerce actively markets it's cool climate and scenic view as a reason to have your convention in Vermont. Vermont's Lake Champlain works hard to draw tourists from all over the country, including these six states.

    On what level was this a good idea? I understand that it was a symbolic gesture but at the governor level to do something like this? Yes, I know he's a Republican. That really doesn't change the situation.
    Excellent analysis. Do you see other states retaliating?

    Yes.. I was going to hold a convention in Stowe for the American Society of Medical Technologist in Stowe.. I guess Trump Tower in NY City might be a better choice.

    Make sure your vacation plans exclude Vermont. WE need to resettle all incoming refugees in Vermont and encourage all third world immigration to settle there.

    I think sarcasm is much much too complex communication for liberals to grasp.

    States retaliating? No, but event organizers that have or are trying to attract participants from those states. It was just a stupid thing to do. Want to send that kind of message use fictional places. Have you seen New York's campaign to try and attract businesses to move to their state? Every state has one. Imagine you own a business in Pennsylvania, would you be thinking about moving your business to Vermont after seeing something like this actually signed by the Governor?

    That needs to go on social media...encouraging refugees to settle in Vermont. We'll see how residents in Vermont like the idea. Maybe the president can push the idea. Maybe encourage a few tens of thousands of Somali's and Pakistani's to settle there. I'm sure Vermont citizens will get on board with mass multiculturalism.
