Another reason to promote carrying a gun and pass laws forbidding prosecuting a victim for using it to protect himself. You probably can't get a gun, probably don't know the first step. This sort of crime is the end result of Bob Duff and the Democrats chasing out taxpayers and replacing them with welfare class lowlife municipal housing leaches. View Comment
Personally Id be very skeptical of anyone changing jobs so much. Norwalk has nothing GOOD in common with New Haven or Cincinatti. We need to STOP trying to be a big city and start acting like a community. If you don't live here we don't need you to work here, period. View Comment
Anybody is more qualified than the current joke. I don't much like Trump, but at least he hasn't made a living off the taxpayer. He understands money and creates REAL private sector jobs every day. Something Obama doesn't have a clue about.
You can't blame the police, thats about as stupid as it gets. And if hundreds were involved many more would be hurt. You clowns with a vendetta against the PD are a pathetic bunch at best. Of course they will be outnumbered if theres hundreds of people, grow up or shut up. The issue is that the city uses the beach to make money. We need to discourage non residents instead of marketing it towards them. Raise the non resident fee to $50 bucks. Keep people who don't live here out, let them go to Sherwood Island instead of a neighborhood park.
His greatest accomplishment? Raising racial tensions to a new high or making us look like weak kneed children in the eyes of the world, you pick. Anybody living in CT supporting Democrats needs their heads examined.
The educated people of CT? You mean the ignorant fools that continuously elect the people who have ruined us year after year, decade after decade for some 50 years? lol ok The mans a looser period. View Comment
Why not explain that Norwalk gives the state much much more than it gets back. We overpay and you guys redistribute funds in a way that is very disadvantageous to our City. So while we appreciate your grant efforts isn't it counterproductive and wasteful to tax us, redistribute in a manner that leaves us short on cash and then go through this grant process so we can provide basic services? How much of the money gets eAten up in salaries along the way? It's nice that you get to have everyone see your smiling face but how many know the truth?
You mention Norwalk housing getting grants as well. Which would again be great if the question of WHY we constantly need more units and how it benefits the city were answered. Obviously if the various social programs we also pay for to help the inner city poor were working we would see vacancies as people move up and out of the projects. Instead we see you smiling about getting money for more of them. Who will live there? Are they for Norwalks needy or are we going to market them to the public at large and bring more people who can't afford to live in the climate you created to Norwalk? These are things you should address here and on other social media. We all know you show up for photo ops and talk to children at school. But what we need is for you to do your job and put the Taxpayer first. The way your gang has taxed us nobody should need a grant for anything. Our state rakes in more than 48 of the remaining 49 states per taxpayer, why are we broke? Why are you smiling when you are a part of a state legislature that's going broke and can't pay it's bills? A long time member of the general assembly that has gotten many things passed. Shouldn't you be sad by the poor performance of your party in our state?
These are things we need to know to make a decision on your performance. Not how much you milked Hartford for, that replaces what you took and doesn't reflect well on you to thinking people at all. We shouldn't need grants and wouldn't with responsible leadership in Zhartford. View Comment
Ironic that people responsible for the sad state of affairs regarding the needy in Norwalk and CT are proud that they can hold a party to help them. We wouldn't need so many assistance organizations if our elected officials and their buerocrats actually acted responsibly and reigned in spending. How much did all those new Ford Explorers for the PD cost? ALOT more than 12 grand. How about the fire boat we don't even have dockage for? Responsible spending would go much further than publicity stunts to help Norwalkers. View Comment
These guys will run you into the ground for making common sense posts like this. Don't let them bother you. Anybody who would support the same people election after election even while the state is crumbling around them shouldn't be allowed to vote. Pretty soon they will need to tax welfare because thats all who will be left.
Why bother with that when we have people posting under names like "breaking news" etc? This site would be MUCH better if real names were required. Just like CT would be better off if tax returns were required for voting. View Comment
Umm, thats entirely untrue. Most states have far fewer taxes and I defy anybody to show one with more. Overall CT is if not the highest taxed state very close. This due to runaway progressive politics and an ever growing chunk of the population that take much much more than they give.
Our income tax is among the highest, our property tax is among the highest, our vehicle tax is also high, most states have no vehicle tax because unlike real estate a vehicle is really yours, our sales tax too is high, our sin taxes are high, we tax everything imaginable and STILL OPERATE IN A DEFICIT.
Trying to defend the Democratic policies killing us is inexcusable.
NH has NO income tax, NO sales tax, NO MV tax, they operate pretty much solely on property taxes, which are still lower than ours and thats just one example. CT is a cesspool ruined by a combination of progressive politics, greedy self serving democrat politicians and an exploding welfare class. View Comment
So the two biggest cities contributed the LEAST while the wealthiest contributed many millions more, and yet some lowlifes think that they don't contribute enough? What more do we need to prove that big municipalities and urban centers are a blight on the rest of the state? Bridgeport residents averaged only $938 a person in taxes, New Haven less, and both voted Democrat by a HUGE margin. Another sign of just who and what is killing us. The citizens who contribute the LEAST to the state have far better representation than those who actually support them. Welfare reform needs to address this, if you are getting a check from welfare you should surrender your voting privileges.Its in no way fair for places that are a net loss to all of us to be the deciding factor in elections.
