When we stop subsidizing unwed children to have feral babies, that's when the violence will stop.

a tisdale,'ABCD', and 'bridgeport violence' all in the same sentence... When will they announce that it's all because of discrimination?

oh wait - it gets better:'sandy hook', blumenthal, himes, lanza, finch, malloy, and "a U-shaped table" are in the story too! Now we know how much not to believe and how little to expect from the event.
"By working together we have made some progress," Malloy said, "but we have a long way to go to convince our young people not to shoot each other."
To classify this quote "retarded" dose not do it justice.
The governor said state officials are committed to finding community programs aimed at stopping violence in Bridgeport, and he read a list of grants that have gone to the city this year. Malloy warned, however, that the state will not continue to fund projects by community groups that cannot show they are having an impact.
And THAT's because Bridgeport AIN'T Hartford - where EVERY community program is (of course) WONDERFUL and BEAUTIFUL and RACIALLY PROFITABLE and beneficial to the ENTIRE STATE!
He said he has appointed a staff member to examine the viability of programs.
Translation: he'll now have sufficient and plausible isolation from the matter to claim ignorance when the whole thing is exposed as an expensive and colossal f**k-up.

Deport all the Illegals..Check all welfare applicants for Drugs(positive=NO $)...Cross check all Aid requests with all other states and P.R. To prevent Double Dip... ALL welfare children must have a FATHERS NAME on record;Must contribute by $witholding. Violence will be cut by 70% since that will be the reduction in population after the leeches are thrown out,pushed out and leave for "Greener" pastures...

Don't forget to DNA the kid, the father, AND the mother - just to make sure you have the right ones responsible for the kid's future maintenance.

..........You mean like getting the civil servants to be civil and do their job? That seems to only be for insiders. Ask the people living at 46 or 48 birch hill road. They pay no taxes or mortgage and the Town Hall commits felonies just to keep the deal under wraps. But to actually do the job they were hired for? That's a laugh, would cut into their graft and bribe money.

You need to have about 1/4 to 1/3 of the cops to lock themselves up first!

obama keeps telling lies about ACA. Wait until the web site works and people see how much "free" health care is going to cost . This train wreck is going to get much worst.

It doesn't HAVE to be in spanish - the beaners get the top-level care automatically and for-free. Why should they have to READ anything?
