#27 is more stupid comments from Ava who know nothing about corruption in Connecticut since she lives in South Carolina. Her state has a lot of corruption in public offices. Shame on her for not writing about her state corruption.

Have a conservative come to college and try to talk and see what happens. A college in Madison WI had a bunch of students shout them down. A very conmmon thing these days.

I do too. As long as those values are moral and ethical. Get what you need and leave the rest for those who still need. Unfortunately a lot of families in Ct., especially those involved in politics, consider "Get all you can before someone else does and screw the rest" to be their top family value. Look at your electric bill, gasoline bill, rent, propane, food, etc. These bills are some of the highest in the country thanks to our politicians. Blumenthal got rid of the "Generator Monopoly" on the electric bill, and replaced it with the supplier Monopoly. The crooked road contracts create a lot of the gasoline tax, highest in the country, remember Rowland? Crooked road contracts never stopped, Blumenthal signed those and hasn't stopped signing them yet. The current protests on Wall Street, a lot of those people whose paychecks are being protested live here in FFLD. County. Love thy neighbor is sorely needed here, not love what I can steal from my neighbor as has been the case with virtually all that work in controlling the state.

You are so right about that 'ethic'. That's a big reason I moved out of fairfield county. In the midwest, decency is still in fashion, thankfully.

Without a Brain?? Hey, if I can know the difference between know and known and send and sent, I'll be good with that... Not to mention if I was brainless I would never have to worry about mental issues, would I??? ;)
And if you think I'm going to give you any information about myself, especially after what I've seen you do to good people on these forums, let's just say I'm not the ONLY one without a brain...
