I’m not happy with taxes increasing like most people who have to pay them; but when does it become THEFT vs Necessity as a Part of living in a civilized society?
Our elected officials seem to have a serious problem telling the difference between what is a WANT and what is a NEED for the state of CT…
This seems to be an extremely painful problem for our families who have to suffer under the increasing taxes to pay for all of the Fun but Not Needed Wants that the democrats want to keep imposing upon us
A big part of our budget problem in CT are all of the special projects that fall in the “Fun BUT… It’s Only a WANT” category like Pipedream Fancy “Tunnels Under the River”, Fancy Busway Bus Stops for almost empty buses that create traffic jams downtown while doing little to relieve the traffic problems that we were told they would do all to great expense to our families…
So now our poorest children will be punished because their lunches, sodas and the grocery bags that their parents use to bring home the groceries will have added taxes on them to cover the subsidies that the governor has given out to his special friends & the projects that they want to force upon us.

Well opening day is almost here… just hours away and counting down…
and THIS Year Dunkin Stadium; home of the Hartford Yard Goats, will actually open on it’s scheduled date and time!
Something which it failed to do last year due to all the many building and legal troubles plaguing the; shady done in back rooms to cheat out on the city of New Britain, town council deal from 2013/14…
Not personally a fan of baseball to start with, I was against the building of the stadium using taxpayer monies from the get go… as a taxpaying homeowner like many others I resent that due to the many legal troubles that the city of Hartford over the mismanagement of city funds that we in the suburbs are being forced to pay for this project which doesn’t really do much to benefit current residents of the north end of Hartford who lost a supermarket deal with the stadium going in.

With all of the legal stuff going on, the stadium which had problems with work stopping and starting and then off again with new people needing to be brought in to finish up, I do hope that eventually the citizens of the north end of Hartford will be able to benefit.
We can all hope that the stadium will do well, but no matter how pretty it might be (if you can call the building pretty) the questions are…
“Will the Public Come as Paying Ticket Holders?”
“Will people bring their families to the edge of the north end of Hartford which has a reputation for drugs and gags and shootings?”
After all the money that has been wasted on this project I do hope that the team stays in town and some how against the odds the stadium can turn an actual profit…
But the democrats in power seem to have a knack for making businesses and jobs leave the state after giving them millions of taxpayer dollars and tax breaks so I’m not holding out my breath on this turning out to be profitable…
So let’s see if this year at least if they can get and keep the stadium filled with baseball fans cheering
“Let’s Go Yard Goats!!! Chomp Chomp Chomp!!”
