good point!
here is what sliver203 posted back in 2007 about Connecticut and Newtown and he said too "If you don't want to live among Liberals, then Connecticut may not be the place for you. Even the conservatives here, as I stated before, lean more left than your average American Republican." which dont say too much about Connecticut which I already knew that New England States are Ultra Liberal which dont matter if Republican or Democrat and Romney was Proof.

Southwestern Connecticut is among the most conservative areas in New England - mostly fiscally - but would be considered more socially liberal to those in the south and the heartland. Westport leans more liberal but still has a good percentage of conservatives.

The very wealthy towns of Greenwich, Darien, New Canaan, Ridgefield and Wilton vote overwhelmingly Republican. If you can't afford homes in these towns (the median price being close to or over $1m in most of the "Gold Coast" area), then other very conservative communities in SW Connecticut are Southbury, Oxford, Middlebury, Shelton, Easton, Monroe, Newtown, Seymour and Brookfield. These towns are also more fiscally conservative than socially, and prices are cheaper than those in lower Fairfield. Still, most of these communities are within a 30 minute drive to Bridgeport and Norwalk.

If you don't want to live among Liberals, then Connecticut may not be the place for you. Even the conservatives here, as I stated before, lean more left than your average American Republican.

As for eastern CT (Groton area), the towns there are generally more liberal than further west. I believe the vast majority of Middlesex, New London and Tolland Counties are very liberal.

I guess it all depends on what you can afford. If you want a conservative community and can afford the price tag of $800k and up, consider Greenwich, Darien and Wilton. If prices in the 500s are more realistic for you, then consider Southbury, Newtown or Oxford where you can get more house for your money.

More on the family of the killer in the NYT etc apparently the killer was autistic, the mother hadn't worked at that school for a few years. What a disaster

Without firearms innocent victims couldn't protect themselves against the criminals.
Get rid of the criminals and crime will also decrease.
Believe it or not that will stop crime quicker than outlawing guns ever will. A good place to start would be your minority ghetto's where 80%+ crime occurs.
So you're suggesting the 5-year-olds that were murdered today could have protected themselves if they had been armed?
Good people become criminals because they have guns.
Columbine, Co., Aurora, Co., Portland, Or. and Newton Conn. are not minority ghettos.

<quoted text>The songs, the shows on TV, and the video games are not the problem themselves, carol. They are a SYMPTOM of the larger problem, which is the willingness of people to LISTEN to, watch, and play with that sort of cosmic dreck. Plenty of 'Rock-n-Roll' glorifies objectification of women, and celebrates death: think Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, and Jim Morisson, just to name a few.
Country music glorifies cheating, alcoholism and gun violence far more than rock and roll or rap music. That's why most redneck NRA gun nuts listen to it.

What do today's events and the events of last week's mall massacre have in common? Both shooters stole their weapons from "legal" gun owners. Proof positive that "legal" gun ownership is a major contributor to violent crime. America needs to get rid of all these guns.

I have volunteered time, at my leisure, and not at the government's command. Apparently you don't understand what the word "voluntary" means, nor "mandatory".

If you can't keep up with the grown-ups' conversation you should go sit at the kiddie table.

Drunk Drivers Cause More Deaths Than Firearms
http://www.capemaycountyherald.com/article/85...
Liberal media are loathe to report stories about how a gun saved someone's life or the life of a loved one. If you wish to find these statistics, you have to hunker down for the long haul. Those stories are plentiful but you have to search for them.

But if a drunk parent leaves a loaded gun in their nightstand and kids get it to hurt themselves tragically, bada-bing, bada-boom, it's on the NY Times front page and the evening news' lead story.
And then here comes the Jerk-In-Chief....talking BS about his children and how he learns from them(puke, puke), yada, yada, yada.

And then he sends thousands of illegal guns to Mexico's drug cartel with hundreds of deaths occurring as a consequence.

Americans, especially Liberals, are suckers for sensationalism. Remember the Yellow Journalism of William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer? Hearst started the Spanish-American War with published lies and Joseph Pulitzer tried to outdo him.

Sensationalism works. Tried and true, it always sells. Gun Control Nuts eat it up like candy. Who could possibly be against saving the children? Horrors! A Fool and his self-dignity are soon parted.

People have volunteered to work for the American Red Cross only to find corruption at national levels.

People have volunteered to work for United Way only to find out the highly paid United Way CFO dines at London Chop Houses twice a week and the Charity picks up the tab for the trans-Atlantic flight and meal - including his/her friends. This has happened multiple times over the last two decades.

Volunteer to do the dishes at the Christmas Family get-together. Volunteer to mow your shut-in neighbor's lawn. Volunteer to ring the Salvation Army Bell.

But don't waste your time with Red Cross, United Way and the Boy Messiah Suckazz Club.
