Oh well, why expect an intelligent outcome when this has been the norm for decades and decades. Congrats Bob, please TRY to help the working people this go round if you have time between photo ops with the poor people, created by Dem policies.
A quick look at the comments here and the way democrats invent new identities to post as different people shows clearly the level of intelligence we are talking about. Idiocy must be a Democrat requirement. View Comment
The pollution you talk about has been here for decades, the issue at hand was a more recent fast developing one, banning those pesticides seems to be helping. That said I'm not hiving Bob Duff, Perone or any legislator credit for it. They just happened to be there, they didn't look for an answer or care about the problem. The issue was brought to them, they did what anybody in their position would do and don't deserve credit for it. Just as they ignore most things unless it can make them look good they ignored the lobster issue until they got a photo op. I'm not a fisherman a pond I knew something was wrong just by living here and noticing how the lobster men disappeared. I wouldn't say these men are hanging around with politicians. The politicians just used them to get pictures for the election. Just like Duff has been at the ST Anne's club serving the last two monthly dinners only because of the election. Never see him until election time and that says a lot about his priorities. The CT Democrats are a bunch of self serving people only interested in getting elected. They killed our state and still boast about "Standing up for you" nothing is further from the truth. Best thing we can do is clean house and tide ourselves of the poison in our state, the Democrat majority in Hartford. View Comment
In CT its simple. If the Democrats haven't gotten it right yet, and its obvious they haven't, after decades and decades, then its kinda silly to think they're going to. Lets NOT saddle the country with our poor decisions by flooding Washington with our Liberal Democrats. Vote smart, vote Debicella! View Comment
Just for the record the idiot spouting garbage in the thread isn't me. Just a typical liberal doing what they do best, pretending, fantasy is how they get by. Jim is a disgrace to CT and a part of the reason why our state and nation are in a pitiful state. CTs refusal to admit that the Democrats as directly responsible for ALL out state issues is baffling. The fact that people consider a mans efforts to thwart, not the gun lobby as the writer claims, but all of our basic civil rights, a good thing says much about the level of ignorance needed to vote for the people dragging us down. Going against the intentions of the founders of not only our nation, but the state itself should be shameful, but they brag about it. Ignoreing the obvious reality that liberal gun control, passed by first washington & then CT Democrats, is the biggest contributor the deaths that spawned the most recent law here.
Vote the Democrats OUT everyplace you can. They ARE in power and they ARE the ones who created the state we live in. View Comment
A voice of moderate reason in a sea of liberal sewage that is the CT legislature. My only issue is she voted for Malloys "Let honest people get killed" gun bill. Our issues are widespread here and while civil rights matter most to me our finances NEED at least as much attention. Thirty years of liberal folly have almost buried us.
Did I miss it or did the Daily Voice not mention Travis Simms arrest for breaking the law that his fellow Democrats shoved down our throats? Thats MUCH more newsworthy this close to an election that three kids smoking pot. This guy is held up as a role model, an example of people moving up from the projects to a productive life. And he leaves a loaded gun in a car in a bad neighborhood, along with a banned magazine loaded beyond legal limits, yet nothing? View Comment
Its a no brainer. Mickey Mouse should be able to beat Malloy today. Hopefully the CT voters will look around long enough to notice the everything and anything wrong with CT today is due to the Democratic party. View Comment
He did the right thing. We need to do the right thing too and vote out the people who try so hard to ensure people can't save themselves. A much better outcome would have been a passenger or the driver shooting the guy before anybody got hurt. View Comment
Anything is better than what we have now, and what we have both now and for thirty years is pretty much a Democrat dictatorship. When we have a Republican governor they're neutered by the constant Democrat controlled General assembly, and when we have a Democrat governor everything gets rubber stamped. Yet these clowns sit and try to blame republicans on our problems.
Every time I look in here it reminds me of a kindergarten classroom.
Anyway I like some of his ideas but don't think exempting some businesses is any kind of answer. Lowering taxes for ALL of us on the other hand is a great idea. We should be looking at the states with the LOWEST tax burden and learning from them. I suspect that discouraging, rather than attracting, low income residents might be key. Its impossible to have a vibrant economy when you steal from the productive to attract unproductive which it exactly what we do. A start is to get rid of all incumbents who support the direction we have been on for the past thirty years of Democratic totalitarianism in CT. Rep or Dem if they support the progressive agenda that has been sucking us dry they need to be voted OUT OUT OUT.
Wonder why we never see Duff or Malloy mention this in their campaigning? Smiling faces ignoring a pitiful state seem to go far for CT voters. We sure can't be electing these guys because of good effective governance. Only thing we are tops in are taxes and unemployment. View Comment
It's a place to commit a crime because the Democrats keep importing low life's by building more and more public housing. And there's more and more people needing help because of the cost of living imposed by those same Democrats. View Comment
Of course he's going to campaign for Malloy. Not like we have anything needing his attention, no reason to actually go to work when he can hang out with other Marxists and push his agenda. Its sad that Malloy, or ANY well known incumbent feels a need to campaign. The fact that they do so simply proves they know that their performance alone is not worthy of continued employment. Voteing for somebody who everyone knows but still feels a need to plaster his/her face all over the state like they need recognition is about as dumb a decision a person can make. The Democratic Party in CT cannot run on results, so they just keep pretending they're something new. Hey guys! Did you see all the Bob Duff lawn signs! He looks like such a good guy, lets give him a chance! Idiots. At least the nation has tried Republicans in recent history, CT hasn't had any real influence other than Democrat influence in thirty plus years. ANYTHING wrong in CT was done by the Democrats, anything good too, just hard to find anything good about CT though these days. View Comment
Why did I expect intelligent adult conversation when I clicked this link? Pathetic. People blame those who haven't been in power in CT for three decades or in DC for 8 plus years. Cant take a single step forward until we admit where we are and that's a DNC run society. View Comment
Voteing for Himes shows about as much grasp on political reality as voting for ANY Democrat does, none. Himes is more worried about milking the dead kids of Newtown for popularity than he is about fixing a single thing wrong with this state or country. He's a spoiled rich Greenwich brat. View Comment
Where? In CT they are responsible for NOTHING, so any issues you have here are the result of Democrats. Get over it, the Democrats of today are just like the ones that MLK fought, they're just like the ones that implemented Jim Crow laws and fought to preserve slavery.
Why even debate? The Democrats have had firm control for 30 years now. EVERYTHING wrong with CT TODAY has grown to be what it is under their control. Quite simply they have run us into the ground. If people continue to vote for them then THEY are the problem. If we need a debate, if theres really any question about whats better, then its obvious that our citizenry has no concept of responsibility or ability for logical thought. View Comment
