Cris Ericson, U.S. Senate Candidate, Excluded from VTdigger Debate

CCTV.org only gave me 15 minutes! I was excluded from the VTdigger U.S. Senate candidate forum, so I appear all by myself on
http://cctv.org at 6:40 PM  after the VTdigger.org Debate exclusively promoting only the arrogant male Democrat & male Republican candidates, who by excluding me, prove they are not inclusive and are disparaging of women candidates.

Watching The Queen’s Funeral Live

Did you watch the Queen’s Funeral “live” today?

If you can trace your ancestry back to the mid 1700s, the King of Great Britain was keeping track of your ancestors before then because prior to the Declaration of Independence, he was still trying to get tax dollars out of them.

While watching the proceedings of Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, I wanted to trace a piece of jewelry that I had always thought was junk jewelry because great aunt Annie called it a “trinket”.


New Volunteer Talk Show Host Needed For 2 Months

Hi! Other candidates who are not Democrats or Republicans are now complaining about being excluded from debates.

I brought debate exclusion up before here at ibrattleboro.com. I emailed other non-major party candidates but none of the other candidates responded to my emails, except one, Kerry Raheb told me to lose his number or something like that, but the rest didn’t respond at all.


Outrage! Vermonters Forced To Pay Electricity for Marijuana Grow Operations!

“As Vermont edges toward a legal recreational cannabis market, everyone paying a power bill is indirectly subsidizing the indoor cultivation of marijuana.
Efficiency Vermont, established by lawmakers in 1999 and funded through charges on residential and commercial power bills, is working to blunt the power demand of the energy-intensive cannabis businesses taking root.”

Why is this an outrage? Because we shouldn’t be forced to pay the electricity bill for any profit making business! No doubt about it, the marijuana / cannabis businesses expect to make millions in profits.


Political Endorsement: Supporting Brenda Siegel for Governor

Supporting Brenda Siegel
Last Autumn (2021), when most Vermont residents were able to enjoy having a roof over their heads to stay warm and dry underneath, a comfortable bed to sleep in, nourishing daily meals to eat and proper hydration with which to attempt to stay healthy, Brenda Siegel and others were holding vigil on the steps of the State House in Montpelier on behalf of those most in need who live without such means.

For my part, I joined them there for a single evening and it wasn’t easy or fun by any means. They did so for 27 long days and nights until the governor and his reluctant administration finally relented to their demands.


VT Digger Excludes Independents From Debate; Candidate Offers To Donate Salary

WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF ELECTION FRAUD?

It happens many different ways in Vermont!

VtDigger.org is an online news source in Vermont which claims to be a non-profit and may receive funding from the State of Vermont. They are holding a series of political candidate debates which ONLY INCLUDE the Democrats and Republicans and exclude all others.


The King Of Criminals

The last U.S. president has left a trail of crimes that are unprecedented in American history. A reasonable person would expect that such a high level criminal would have already been prosecuted for a few of the more egregious crimes, yet the man who may prove to be the most immoral and unethical person to live in the White House is free and has not yet been charged with a crime.

The American people need some degree of closure. We also need to have hope that Trump never again holds the office of President. The ball is in the court of the Justice Department and it will be up to Attorney General Merrick Garland to make sure that our legal system does not become another casualty in the Trump wars. It will be up to voters to destroy Trump’s political ambitions.


Nasty Behaviour

To the woman in front of me, with what appeared to be her partner and two daughters on the Edible Brattleboro farmstand line this morning: Your gratuitous nastiness was not appreciated. It looks like you wished to pass on ugliness to the world. Insulting and unkind behaviour is not in the spirit of the gift/sharing economy.


The Nov. 8, 2022 Ballot is Getting Crowded! There Will Be 5 (FIVE!) Independent Candidates for U.S. Senator!

Hello! I’m Cris Ericson and I am one of the 5 (FIVE!!!) INDEPENDENT candidates on the Nov. 8, 2022 ballot for U.S. Senator. It’s starting to look like the independent movement is very popular in Vermont!

I do want to report, because I mentioned this previously, that my first cousin’s son was on the ballot in Missouri, and now I am terribly sad to report that the Press reported that the richest candidate won the Democrat primary for U.S. Senator there. The richest Democrat candidate, Trudy Busch Valentine, heiress to megal millions from the Busch empire, didn’t bother to file until the last filing date, and waltzed in and started spreading her cash around Missouri. Lucas Kunce had been campaigning for a whole year, a nice guy, a U.S. Marine for 13 years, Major, JAG Officer, law degree in International Law, worked with the Pentagon, was exposed to burn pits, AND HE WAS ENDORSED BY U.S. SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS OF VERMONT.

Vote Isaac Evans-Frantz for U. S. Senate!

I strongly believe that we need the leadership of Isaac Evans-Frantz to fill our open US Senate seat. I encourage my fellow Vermonters to vote for him by the August 9th election. For over 20 years, he has sought and gained solutions to problems at home and around the world.

He’s built relationships and coalitions which benefit everyday Vermonters and everyday worldwide citizens. From improved Vermont dental care to $650 billion worth of global COVID relief, Isaac’s role was vital. His leadership led to bipartisan legislation aimed at ending our unconstitutional war on Yemen, the poorest country in the Middle East. It also provided $2.7 billion in aid to Ukraine, all at no cost to the US. This was the largest release of international funds in history.


What Is Wrong With So Many People?

https://www.cnn.com/2022/07/26/politics/cnn-poll-january-6-trump/index.html

According to a current CNN news story:

“. . . a public consensus has emerged that former President Donald Trump acted at least unethically in trying to hold on to his office after the 2020 election (79% feel he acted either unethically or illegally, including 45% who believe his actions were illegal), that he encouraged political violence in his public statements ahead of January 6 (61%) and that he could have done more to stop the attack once it had begun (77%).

“Global Warming” As A Political Issue Fails To Take Into Account That Some Hot Days Are Caused By The Sun!

How much of what people call “global warming” is NOT man made? It’s just another hot day brought to us by our Sun!

Dr. Tamitha Skove, a space weather physicist, posted on twitter that a filament of a solar storm on the Sun would arrive on Earth early July 19th.

Well, we can look at the weather forecast and see it will be warm tomorrow.


Mark Coester, (R) on Primary Ballot for State Senator, Goes to Southern Border Wall & Inspects Hole In It!

I seriously want Mark Coester to win his primary election run, Aug. 9, 2022, for State Senator because if he loses that, he told me his plan B is to run for U.S. Senator, and I see at the Vermont Secretary of State Elections Div. links for 2022 candidates that he is on the ballot for both Aug. 9th as a Republican and Nov. 8, 2022 as an Independent.
