Glad to see that appearances matter more than what they were truly elected for, preserving OUR RIGHTS, Im not making light of environmental issues, but when they hold up their right hand they swear to protect & uphold the constitution. Voting against our civil rights trumps being politically correct about the environment. McKinney MUST GO! View Comment
I hope nobody gets hurt with these overreactions becoming so common. Not a single corroboration or sighting and we just go all out nuts. Be funny if it weren't so serious. Id imagine theres always people with guns near or on campus anyway, its not exactly a nice area.
Whos responsible for the timing? You must be kidding right? Newtown is NOT the only place to ever suffer this sort of thing. Sympathies for them have been real costly to the citizens of this state. If you want to ask about timing why not ask how on earth our legislature drafted & passed legislation in response to this BEFORE they or ANYBODY had a report to read?
The sad fact is Malloy & his chorines shoved their law down our throats useing those kids deaths to push an agenda, nothing more or less & not one child would have been saved if the new laws were in place last year.
Dog parks, or off leash dog parks, are a bad idea no matter what I think. My dog was attacked at Taylor farm too, but by a pair of very aggressive German Shepards. When I was a kid all you heard about was Dobermans & how they turned on their owners and attacked kids etc. Anybody can see that pitbulls are very strong & determined dogs. But Im not ready to buy that they bite anymore than any other dog. Iv known dozens in my life that never hurt anybody. No question though that if they decide to attack theyre alot more dangerous than many other dogs.
Cant imagine losing an arm to a dog, sad sad deal.
No staff can handle a situation because our legislature has worked real hard to ensure that nobody can effectively resist an assailant. Nothing on this list will save one kjid, none of it will prevent anotrher mass shooting. All it will do is help police pick up the pieces. As a father of two public school kids I hold our legislature, governor & chief of police assoc directly responsible for all the victims of violence in our pubvlic schools. When you arbitrarily deny citizens their state & federal civil right to bear arms to protect themselves YOU accept responsibility for their saftey. The sad fact is our rage is mis-focused, we ELECT those responsible for pretending to care. Its a game to Msalloy, Duff, Perone, Cafero, Wood & the rest. A game they need not worry about because in their gun free zone WE pay people with assault weapons to protect them. Personally Id rather my kids be protected & the legislature defend themselves.

This is a good thing, but Duff supports ANYTHING that the democrats dream up. why not support tax reform that would take ct off the highest taxed state list so everyone could afford it here better?
These vets fight for ALL of our freedoms & rights, not just those the current elected leaders find useful. Bob Duff and the majority of our legislature voted in a law this year depriving us all of basic civil rights, even veterans. Its a very sad day when these people use a tragedy like Newtown to erode our rights and then expect praise for helping people who wouldnt need help if these same legislators didnt abuse us with over taxation.

So what? Just because someplace is worse is no defense. If you put together our total tax burden I bet its well over 50% of the average persons income in this state. If they work for a living anyway. View Comment
Duh, who needs ask Kiplinger to know this? We have every tax imaginable & all near or at the top of the scale nationwide. Its whats needed to run a liberal cesspool such as CT, even with a huge deficit. These bozos dont care at all if the things they pass cant be funded with real money. Just pass it & move on.

Oh, and the ONLY way the feds get money is thru taxation. True theres many different taxes, but thats the only place they get it. They, just as the state & city exist only at our expense, they generate no income & the only benefit to us of their existence is responsible governance. View Comment
No I dont know all the people in here by name. YOU chose to try being familiar by useing "Kenny: instead of Ken so I figured we may know one another.
Im very familiar with the way grant funding works & find it unethical. We pay taxes to them to run the federal govt, not create schemes to keep us in their pockets. What it does is it goads people into spending money even if they dont need it just so they can say "look what we did". Ever think somebody someplace might need this more than we do for a few meaningless cute signs?
If you truly believe that we are recovering money that the govt took from us you would be wise to lobby against collection of excess taxes simply so the govt can act like its doing us a favor. Theses grants also often come with conditions which is one reason why Norwalk finds it more important to create houseing for those who cant afford it here rather than trying to cut programs & make it truly more affordable so we can swap deadbeats in projects for productive citizens.
Im not your buddy, thru YOUR choice not mine & I stand by my opinion that you are at best rude and frequently ignorant. Thats all, I wont stoop to your childish petty insults, because, unlike you, I am not rude or ignorant.
Broad River. just where do the feds get their money? Sometimes a little knowledge can expose a lot of ignorance. And if you know me itd be polite to let me know who you are no? Otherwise your not only ignorant, but rude too. View Comment
Moccia kept this bozo in check as best he could. Him & the other municipal unions. We should note, everyone should note, how quick these unions which always supported Moccia dumped him like a hot potato when Rilling entered the race. Hypocrisy says alot about people. Like Rillings hypocrisy representing first the police union, then swapping sides as chief and now Mayor. As a mayor he is OUR advocate, who really believes he'll put the taxpayer over the PD or FD or anybody drawing a city check?
Sad sad example of the easily manipulated voters around here. View Comment
Sad these clowns are worried about gay rights and other progressive things but work so hard against the basic civil rights that are a foundation for all the rest. Even sadder that the CT voters put them in office to erode all our civil rights while supporting those of a chosen few that benefit their party affiliation.
