The US government talks the talk about Covid vaccination but doesn’t walk the walk. The CDC and the FDA say “get vaccinated” but they don’t act as if they really believe in the efficacy of the shots.

Since December 2018, “Vermonters for Vermont” Initiative has been talking about educating every Vermonter about freedom, liberty, individualism, independence, innovation and personal responsibility. We have been defending and promoting our Constitution, Free-Markets and taking risks. We have been working to educate and encourage Vermonters to learn what Montpelier and local governments are doing.

There isn’t enough money coming into Washington. But, then, there never is. This is why the budget is never balanced and the national debt grows ever larger. Congress votes enthusiastically to spend. Reluctantly to tax.

In the last few weeks of the session, two committees in the Vermont House and Senate were at an impasse over a bill that was important to both sides. One colleague kept saying to me in increasingly exasperated tones, “Their position doesn’t make any sense. We could clear this up in a few minutes with just a very small amount of money. Why won’t they take the deal?” Shuttle diplomacy (over Zoom) wasn’t working. Conversations between chairs and leadership teams couldn’t seem to break the logjam. We were all discouraged, and the conflict felt intractable. But then I remembered High Conflict, a new book by Amanda Ripley.

The Bush-Cheney Administration responded to 9/11, not with an internationally supported manhunt for perpetrators but by invading two Muslim countries. Their response was based on rightwing research into how the US could dominate the world, detailed in their 2000 document “Rebuilding America’s Defenses.” Page 51 concludes the plan’s realization likely to be difficult “absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor” (or 9/11).
