The much abused promote the general welfare clause.

Note the words CT Constitution.

There is no general welfare clause in the "CT Constitution". I was surprised as to the brevity of the document and the lack of overall specificity.

Just because URL says darien doesn't mean that I am in darien , also doesn't mean that I live in darien.

The dss was created through statute implementing the federal welfare.
There are many states with general welfare clauses, CT is ingrained in statute.

Did you forget about the surge?
No, did you forget whose whose surge it was?

Bush focused less on Afghanistan after the Taliban had mostly left for Pakistan. Then in 2009, Obama sent 30,000 more troops..I guess his intelligence sources weren't any better then than today.
All the while, he's surging up in Afghanistan, and OBL was holed up in Pakistan. So it took 30,000 more troops in Afghan to figure out that OBL wasn't even there. Amazing..can't make this stuff up.

Wrong again, sweetie!
"(Reuters)- Long famous for its top-notch highways and passion for cars, the United States is letting bridges rust as traffic chokes overburdened roads, threatening a pillar of its economic strength...
....The United States has fallen sharply in the World Economic Forum's ranking of national infrastructure systems. In the forum's 2007-2008 report, American infrastructure was ranked 6th best in the world.
The 2011-2012 report due in September will show America at No. 16, with South Korea overtaking the United States during the last year, according to a copy of the rankings obtained by Reuters.
The quality of American roads is about on par with those of Malaysia. They lag Hong Kong, whose infrastructure tops the overall list..."
http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/08/16/uk-...
Wrong about what? I didn't bring up roads and bridges - MadMax did. My only comment was that something happened to the stimulus money, cause it sure didn't get used on R&B.

<quoted text>You don't appear too neglected. Obama's unemployment has increased in all sectors of society, especially in his pet groups. The stimulus should've rebuilt thousands of bridges. It's the economy stupid.
" Recovery.gov counted and the amount of jobs stimulus created under 751,000.... In the areas that saw gains, most of them were because of government jobs.... workers make 60% more than the private sector and four times as much in benefits"
..like we need more government employees.
TOOL....Rep will increase taxes on middle and low people. Giving tax relief to the 2% rich. Your an idiot to vote Republican. Businesses should be taxed 30% TOOL. They have loads of flexability, not like middle folks. Dumb TOOL PLUS...Obama will not start stupid wars on credit. AS--SSS--Hole

" I don't believe in extorting money from someone else to support the causes I believe in."
Really?
Does this apply to military spending? Defense and support of Israel?
No, I mean like Flukey's contraceptives and abortions. I really don't care if people have abortions - it's kinda creepy, but then I wouldn't tell anybody that they can't have an abortion if it's what they really really want.(or need).
I'll bet it's a Republican plot to come out against abortions just so Democrats will whine about it and get more of them. A devious Demographic plot against Democrats. How clever.

And also I mean like Egypt,Libya,Turkey, and all those other countries with which we have no RECIPROCAL agreements. In other words, take the money please,(how do you think Mubarak got so rich?) and then puleeze be nice to us. That's our normal foreign aid strategy. Is this so difficult to comprehend??

Let me explain it once more about Israel. Of the aid we send, over 85% MUST be SPENT HERE in purchasing goods and services of U.S companies which keeps people working here. This is probably the 50th time I've pointed this out here and elsewhere to anti-Israel types. Not that you are, just saying.

Military - last I looked, a standing army and the support thereof was still in the constitution. Of course, it's been a while since I checked, and Obama's still in office, so it might've changed.

Anyway - now that I've had my say..take care and be safe up there.

1. And, therefore, I was correct when I said that the CT Constitution has no general welfare clause. And, I was correct when I said that Frijoles was not addressing the federal constitution.

2. There is no relationship between the federal general welfare clause and the department of social services from CT. The relationship, at best, is the 10th amendment. Then it is up to the state of CT to enact social services if it wishes. Since there is no limitation in the CT Constitution against just about anything, the CT General Assembly can do just about anything it wishes and not be unconstitutional according to the state constitution. As I said, I was surprised by the brevity and lack of specificity of the CT Constitution.

ARRA was used for many other projects other than roads and bridges. At least here in the northeast. Down where you are I think you guys were not as creative or welcoming. Again, you have my sympathies.
Aw, shucks. I suspect we could be less skilled in tracking down the golden carrot. It also could be viewed as something to be proud of. Robert G. Byrd wasn't known for his reticence in getting other people's money :)

Does your state provide snow removal, leaf pickup, recycling and the rest? Wow, you're getting ripped because it's probably costing way more than if the local municipality did it, or even better, competing companies which we have here for some of those services. Road service and Police, Fire, and EMS is by county.

Dont forget that CT is home to 2 of the most spectacular bridge failures in American history - both over the I95 corridor
I95 Mianus Bridge in the 80s - of course you remember that - you were probably living 1 mile away
Bridgeport I95 Bridge - 2002 or 2003 - though that failure was hastened by a burning truck if I recollect
From what I've heard about that area, probably poor quality concrete - all those bodies tend to weaken the mix. What's the name of that swamp around Hamden?
