Wednesday's Thoughts

Over the past few days several individuals have asked me either to try to explain certain issues and or situations that have occurred over the past few weeks.
This week I will try to explain and give my thoughts on several issues that were brought up.
1. Why are the New Britain Rockcats moving to Hartford in a new stadium which is estimated to cost $60 million dollars?  I really do understand this move other than there must be some massive economic incentives being offered to the Rockcats.  I also have no idea how a city as broke as Hartford is coming up with this money for a new stadium and why is it a priority for them.  I know I will have little incentive as a fan to go into Hartford at night to see a game. My feelings are at the last minute the state will come up with a plan to pay for most of the stadium through our tax dollars and the Rockcats will be moving out of the state within five years.  It is truly a lose, lose for New Britain, Hartford and Connecticut taxpayers.
2. Why are candidates running for state office not stating what their goals and plans are if they get elected?  With the exception of a handful of the more conservative candidates I along with you know little about what is going to be done to turn our state around.  We know as taxpayers and voters that Mr. Malloy and Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule do not discuss specifics until they either jam down our throats another tax increase or spending program.  We also can see fringe candidates making third party attempts to run for Governor with extreme Lieutenant Governor candidates running along side of them.  And we should be realistic in the fact that Connecticut is basically broke with (pick your figure) of over $100 billion dollars in unfunded liabilities, a budget deficit of $1 to $2 billion dollars for fiscal 2015 and negative economic growth.
Thus what is the plan by any candidate?  The concern seems only to be to qualify for taxpayers monies to run their campaign.
3. IRS Scandal.  What is going with this-not much since it continues to be in my opinion fully covered up by the Obama Administration.  Same with VA Hospitals, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Immigration, Telephone records, the list keeps growing by the day with no resolution to anything.  Many moderate and conservative Democrats continue to pull away from this Administration and Mr. Obama continues to look totally unprepared attempting to hold the highest office in the land.  The National midterm elections to me will turn out to be a cleansing on both sides of the aisle.  Washington to me no longer represents the voters who elected them into office.  Senators and Representatives for life have ruined our government along with a massive bureaucracy which entraps our free market system and the exchange of free ideas in our economy.  The tide is turning against the established Washington way in 2014.

We are at a turning point in American history on June 11, 2014.  The corruption that engulfs government is ruining our way of life.  We are still looking for leadership in both Hartford and Washington.
