    Now I'm in on the conspiracy! Leave it to you. Sometimes you remind me of the crazy uncle at Thanksgiving that insists Obama was born in Kenya and Israel is responsible for 9-11. That said, I do appreciate when you bring facts or insights to the discussion. The analysis over in the thread on Peak is a good example. I can respect that. Not the nutty conspiracy stuff though.



    My dog in the fight is the state of Vermont. I think that the unsupported allegations of fraud ultimately hurt future investment in the State. I for one would like to see them finish the work they've started at Burke. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt until I see some evidence that suggest anything other than a run of the mill dispute between two parties to a contract. What those (few) investors are doing is straight from the business litigation playbook. What I won't do is go around trashing the reputations of the folks who work at the Center and Jay- without something more concrete.

    And before you accuse me of being a fanboy for the Q family, go over to the Burke thread and read what I think about Jr and his business judgment. He's taken some concrete steps and said things that make it pretty clear he doesn't have a clue how to handle public relations. In a perfect world, I'd like to see the investment continue, but with someone else at the helm. The way they've treated the locals is atrocious, and bodes poorly for what are likely going to be future decisions that more broadly affect the community.

    And I think there's a difference between being critical and critical thinking. I haven't heard any of you propose how to improve the program (despite specifically asking) and instead seem intent on tearing it down.

    I know BD wants to shut it down, but what do you others think? Do you want to shut down the center and end EB-5 investment in VT?

    This is going to end up in a political debate. Educate me in US politics. The horse-people are the democrats or the republicans ? Romney is a horse person is he ? But is he really a republican ?

    I believe the inaugural horse and dog fight on Satan's Staircase has been postponed indefinitely because, well, politics...

    Only if you are okay with a balloon payment. You should also have VT Digger on speed dial.
