“It is useless for the sheep to pass a resolution in favor of vegetarianism, while the wolf remains of a different opinion.”
— William Ralph Inge
What country in the world passes a law valid for a mere two months? Obama and the Democrats are putting politics ahead of our country and also common sense, again. Shame on the Republicans for caving in, they should have held fast and let Obama and the Senate own the consequences if they failed to pass a one year extension.

I’m writing today to thank the person or persons who angrily vandalized my car, in the middle of a Sunday afternoon, while parked at the Dion Tack Shop on Rte 116 in Amherst, MA! As it was the only car damaged sometime between 10AM & 3PM on a Sunday, in a rural area devoid of street punks, side walks and foot traffic, I have no doubt it was targeted by a patron because of the “Tea Party Patriot” bumper sticker on my rear window and not because it bore a Connecticut license plate! Connecticut being more “liberal” than Massachusetts if that’s possible. Thank you for proving once again that you who claim the high road and accuse those having opposite political views of being intolerant and hateful, will stoop to the level of street punks.
I also thank you for demonstrating that nearby Amherst, Smith and Hampshire Colleges have only NOT instilled civility in the populace but encourage such actions through infiltration by radical, left wing professors of the Bill Ayers persuasion. People have had enough and this nation has woken up, our difference is that we’re not street punks or paid protesters of the Obama and union supported occupy wall street ilk but hard working, self made people in a country where the freedom to excel also gives you the freedom act as you do. I believe you’re actually doing good for the country by demonstrating who and what you are, keep it up you’re precisely what’s wrong with this country!
Our current, but soon to be former leadership encourages actions such as yours by painting the opposition with your own attributes. Being greedy, self centered, misguided, intolerant, hateful and racist are just a few epithets the left wing loves to use. By your actions you’re proving your hypocrisy by committing those very acts and acting under those persuasions.
Happily, your message is getting through as the local police and those we’ve spoken to show no surprise that someone from your region of left leaning, ultra liberal colleges would commit such acts against a fellow citizen, but no one would expect one of us to act accordingly. Therein lies the difference between you and us and one that I’m proud of.

In following news of fraudulent claims for losses occurring from storm Irene, published reports highlight a deeper problem within the Malloy and the Obama administrations, as well as the system as a whole. Both Malloy and Obama were elected with significant help from non-working, non-taxpaying and assistance receiving voters, who in their self-interest support individuals who continue to expand dependence on government largess. Therefore it’s no surprise those administrations show a decided lack oversight, and in Malloys’ case a false sense of outrage. Why false? The initial news reports claimed the 800 State workers who received benefits was a “significantly” higher ratio of workers vs. claimants compared to the private sector. Though no percentages were given in that report, a figure of 80 State employee claimants were initially reported as being highly suspect. In following reports it was reduced to 40, then 24 and now down to 15 apparently fraudulent claims made by “highly paid” State workers. I doubt that many more will be identified and wouldn’t be surprised if these few were further reduced. As this information is provided by the Malloy administration one can only surmise that the Governor, unable to put a lid on in altogether, is trying to whittle it down to a very few individual sacrificial lambs in order to cover the wide spread fraud the government conveniently overlooks.
By creating and expanding generous “assistance” programs to increase support for their socialist policies there’s no pressure to find and prosecute cheaters, and the cheaters know it, especially those government employees in the know! I have no doubt that frauds of this nature are rampant throughout Connecticut and the United States as a whole. The only way to put a stop to this is to elect individuals who are committed to return the system to help for the truly needy and not a remedy for a redistribution wealth that promises to completely destroy the policies which made this country great.
One final thought, why is any state worker who enjoys 35 hour work weeks, generous salaries, state cars, every “holiday” under the sun and golden retiree benefits, all which don’t apply to the average taxpayer in private employment, eligible for government assistance?

How the Social Security lock box scam works. Every payday you put part of your wages into a lock box marked retirement. The next day you take the money out to pay for everyday expenses and leave an IOU. 45 years later you retire planning on living off that lock box retirement money. Sadly it has no real money, only your IOUs!
This is the current status of the Social Security lock box. Our government must now tax or borrow over 2 Trillion dollars to redeem the IOUs yet claims Social Security will add not 1 dime to the national debt.

During the presidential campaign, Obama released just one brief document detailing his personal health, while GOP opponent John McCain released what he said was his complete medical file totaling more than 1,500 pages. The Obama campaign eventually released some routine lab-test results and electrocardiograms for Obama.
Obama refused to offer his official papers as a state legislator in Illinois and did not produce correspondence, such as letters from lobbyists and other information, from his days in the Illinois Senate.

Obama declined to release his college records from Occidental College, where he studied for two years before transferring to Columbia University.
Obama’s campaign refused to give Columbia University, where he earned an undergraduate degree in political science, permission to release his transcripts. Such transcripts would list the courses Obama took, and his grades.
Obama’s college dissertation, reportedly titled “Soviet Nuclear Disarmament,” has disappeared from Columbia’s archives.
Obama did not agree to the release of his application to the Illinois state bar, which would clear up intermittent allegations that his application to the bar may have been inaccurate.
