    Excellent points! This REALLY is disturbing.
    Thanks from Southern Dad and Madeline

    Maybe they are all for mass immigration...as long as they don't live in THEIR state.

    Lots of people are EXACTLY like that

    Much like our member who says we need more immigrants, yet won't lift a finger to help them.

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.
