Hunger in Vermont?

Free food being offered for the youth of Montpelier.
But nobody showed up.

They made it more attractive by freshening up the sandwich board.

But it didn't make the youth of Montpelier hungry, I guess.

"We've Heard About Cecil"

We've heard about Cecil
An African lion
Lured from sanctuary
Not such much about Cecille
An American lyin'
About selling baby parts
To the highest bidder
After murdering the innocent unborn
From the womb.

"How in the World"

"I love cats, too, and I think Cecil is a great name for a lion. In fact, if I ever get another cat I'm gonna name it Cecil in honor of this one. . .  But how in the world can you get teary-eyed and misty-eyed and sad over Cecil and, at the same time, participate in burying what's happening at Planned Parenthood? Can somebody explain that to me?"

"A Knee-Jerk Ideology"

"Liberals think of themselves as very open-minded, but that’s simply not true! Liberalism has sadly become a knee-jerk ideology, with people barricaded in their comfortable little cells. They think that their views are the only rational ones, and everyone else is not only evil but financed by the Koch brothers. It’s so simplistic!"

"Far More Profound"

"I’m speaking here as an atheist. I don’t believe there is a God, but I respect every religion deeply. All the great world religions contain a complex system of beliefs regarding the nature of the universe and human life that is far more profound than anything that liberalism has produced."

"Over the Edge"

“We don’t even know how far we’ve gone, or if we’ve gone over the edge. There are tipping points, feedback loops. This is not some linear set of problems that we can predict. We have to take measures against an uncertain future which may well be something no one ever wants. We are talking about extinction. We are talking about climate regimes that have not been seen for tens of millions of years. We’re not there yet, but we’re on our way.”
