Tomorrow is Election Day Nov 7th 2017

It has been a long campaign season and tomorrow it will end when the polls open at 6am until they close at 8pm and the votes are counted.

2morrow is election day remember vote

 

Met many people in Hartford, Bloomfield and Windsor as well as others from across Connecticut. I enjoy meeting people in the state whether they are in my district or in another persons district where I am helping.

Lot’s of discussions about harmful regulations and the oppressive taxes and what can or should be done to fix our state and our cities and our towns.

Tomorrow is The Day why so many people put in many hours of hard work and I thank each and every one of you that have worked to educate the people about the candidates that are running for office.

Tomorrow is Election Day 2017 and it is the day where we chose the direction of the country, the state and our cities and towns.

The choices are quite distinct to choose to go down the same path towards the destruction of our nation with old socialist / communist policies that have never worked; or we can chose to go in a new direction and turn towards policies and principles that will #MakeWindsorCTGreatAgain .#MakeCTGreatAgain and #MakeAmericaGreatAgain

We will choose to Vote for new Mayors and City-Town Councilors to represent us at the city halls and choosing the direction of our schools with the Board of Ed candidates.

I hope and pray that each of you WILL Get Out To VOTE Row B

Then when you get out in the parking lot that you call those in your household to remind them to get out to vote if they have not voted yet.

CT is in need of a change of direction, we need your help in making that change happen.

If you have a couple of hours to volunteer please give a call; we can use any and all assistance tomorrow.

We need people out on locations through out the state & we have things for people who are housebound to be able to assist as well.

The only way that we can have a #FreshNewStart is if we Vote Out Incumbents that are career politicians who are raising our taxes and wasting our money on special projects for their crony corporate friends…

To get out of this mess we need New People with New Ideas and who know what it is like to live under the oppressive rules and regulations.

#SharingIsCaring so please share this post on all of your social media networks

 

 

#BrokeBronin talks in Rocky Hill 12-12-16

#BeggingForBailOut tour stopped in Rocky Hill CT on Monday Dec 12th 2016

It was almost a full house after all, the video camera view that I initially saw showed a bunch of empty seats but another video showed that the room was mostly full & some people were standing together in the back of the room talking among themselves…

I watched a live stream of the meeting while it was happening in Rocky Hill

Mohegan Sun to open a Korean location

There will now be an International Flavor for the Mohegan Sun Brand 

This report has the newest expansion being put over in South Korea & it will be a big expansion…

In light of this news the question that comes to my mind is why the push for a new rinky dink casino in CT on non-tribal land?

Are they just looking for a quick boost to finance this project overseas?

How committed are they planning to be to us in CT when they’ve slashed their own profits in CT already by opening a competing casino in the tourism region of the Poconos PA?

There are only so many gamblers in CT, MA, NY & NJ… where there was little competition in the past they now have other casinos but they additionally slashed their own profits (and ours too since CT was supposed to get a cut of the pie) by opening in PA.

Since it’s opening in PA which was drawing away people who wanted to do several things on vacation the profits have gone down here in CT.

Better Tourism  Dept in PA was part of the key for CT’s profits loss because many people decided if they were going to drive for 2 hours they would rather have a destination that offered more than just drinking & gambling & expensive shopping.

PA has it’s tourist destinations clearly marketed & it’s actually warmer longer there earlier in the year.

The question is why are CT’s Historical Sites being destroyed for cookie cutter crap instead of promoting CT’s History Richness?

NC Enters Year 4 of Common Core and Reading Retention for 3rd Graders Increases Statewide

Those who are fighting common core have been made fun of the parents fighting common core & the administrations in most states have gone on the attack to try to drown out the voices of those concerned & knowledgeable enough to stand up & say “NO This is Very Bad for our children & we do not want it”

With each passing year the schools make excuses after excuses for why the students are doing poorly…
Then they demand more money because they think that if the test scores are bad then of course they must spend more money on the worst educational system that was developed…

#ParentsRights are being denied as many school officials try to hide the curriculum & lessons & tests from the parents. Teachers & Administrators have gone against what are in the best interest of the children in their push to add more highly paid staff with titles to do worthless studies…

Our children are worth more than the crazy experiments which these testing corporations are doing. We can not afford for our children’s lives to be ruined by these people.

#StopCommonCoreInCT end the moneypit waste that we have going on in every town in CT.

Learn All that you can about this program & then get down to the town halls & demand for the removal of this mess from our state & towns! #TakeBackOurSchools

New gang in Chicopee recruiting kids as young as 12 years old – Western Mass News – WGGB/WSHM

I came across the article below
After hearing about some recent bike thefts & seeing some complaints & debates about the gangs of children on bikes riding recklessly in Windsor neighborhoods on facebook; I’m wondering if this might be what is going on.

Parents want to put their heads in the sand & think that their children would not act in such a manner but reality is that in the times in which we live we possibly could have such a bike gang problem going on.

Parents we have to talk to our children & their friends parents so we can know where our children are. I think that it might be a good thing to have our police departments to compare notes to see if there is a possibility that this gang in Mass is also operating here in CT.

What is there for our youth to do to distract them from this type of activity that is quite dangerous?
With all of the money spent on the schools aren’t there after school activities for the children to be a part of?
What activities are offered at the community centers that our children can take part in so they aren’t playing in the streets?

A new gang in Chicopee has police on high alert because the group is recruiting kids as young as 12-years-old.  Officers are now continuing their efforts in providing safety for residents.

Windsor Budget Vote May 12th

Windsor Voters it is time once again to get your paper & pencil & sit down & figure out how much more this year your family can afford to spend paying for the high & inflated budget which has been put in front of us to pay with another tax increase on our property taxes…
Keep in mind that our state officials are also planning to increase our income taxes & adding taxes on items not previously taxed, in addition to raising the taxes on items we’ve got to pay for our gas, cigarettes, & wine

Many do not have the ability to attend the town hall meetings on a regular basis due to family & work obligations, but were you aware that even if you do not get cable tv into your home you can watch many of our town hall meetings online?

Below is a clip of the last portion of the Windsor Town Council Meeting that was held on April 27th 2015 from the town website.
Clicking the link will open the video in a new window for you to see the last 15 or so minutes of the 2+hours that took place.

2-22-14 Common Core Forum Portland CT

This video is a Live Stream of the forum in Portland CT Feb 22nd 2014 that was put together by parents fighting common core in CT

It has some glitches & the lunch break was recorded because the way that the setup for the Live Stream worked to turn off the stream for the breaks would have lost the connection that the Live Viewers saw

Driving in Winter – ugh I Hate Snow on the Roads

Yes it’s that bane to unicorn fart believers time of year – WINTER

When freezing temps & lots of snow is falling & we in the frozen lands ask “Hey can you send some of that global warming over here?”

I hate driving in winter during snow storms or afterwards when there is a hit or miss on will the roads being traveled be plowed & cleared.

Sometimes it can’t be helped people have to go to work & children off to schools & snow storms have their own schedule.

What is in your car as you’re driving around this winter?

I’ve been lucky to not have gotten stuck in the snow on the roadside but they have shown on the news this winter how others have not been so lucky.

I’ve done my best to stay off the roads when possible when snow is falling but a couple of times have had the unpleasant experience of being out when the snowstorm starts.

People yes we all want to get home & out of the snow but SLOW DOWN!
What good is speeding home to hit an ice patch & have an accident that causes not only you but everyone on the highway after you to spend an even longer time stuck in the cold in a traffic jam?
Saw that happen on my way home from DC earlier this winter.

Emergency Kit Backpack

Emergency Kit Backpack

Do you have a blanket or some sort of throw inside the car to reach for if you get stuck for an extended period of time out in the mess? If you have children then an old twin blanket for them in the back seat will reach across the seat to cover them all fold in half lengthwise to add warmth & a 2nd one for the adults in the front seat.

With it being winter try to never let the gas tank go below 3/4 full would be ideal but reality is not as easy to do as we’d like. The danger in letting the gas tank go below 1/4 is that in a traffic jam you could run out of gas or more common is that in this cold the gas lines will freeze. To help against gaslines freezing in the car adding some drygas to a full tank once a month has helped me over the years.

While it’s not snowing take a few minutes to gather items for your next trip out to the car
Snow Scraper with Brush – reminder the new law passed we have to remove car roof snow too
Extra Mittens to just leave in the car
Sunglasses – glare from the sun & snow means sunglasses are year round requirement for driving
Blankets or Throws – 1 for each row of seats
Flashlights & a RED film covering for signaling to show up against snow day or night
Some munchies to leave in the car like granola bars or protein bars that are wrapped & not affected by freezing or heat for a month
Candle in a Tin & Matches – hey save gas & battery life with a candle in a tin if stuck on the roadside adds a tiny bit of heat too
First Aid kit – pick one up at the store & add what you need to it & put it under the front seat

There are websites that offer more in depth details about what to have in an emergency kit for the car & home. One of the sites which I have been involved with is http://AroundTheCabin.com/Campfire This is where we can chat, ask questions & discuss all sort of different ideas about life in a world without electrical power or emergencies like Katrina / Sandy style events.
They start 8pm eastern Sunday through Friday nights & will be expanding their times on air as they bring on more hosts.

Take Action & Call All of our congressional leaders #MakeDCListen
CT has a total of 7 members in the 2 arms of congress make a call to ALL 7

Or if you want to brave the weather & can get a few friends to join you then grab some signs & walk around the block that the office is on & show your displeasure #OccupyCongress

We might be able to afford to be able to go down to DC to make our elected listen to us but we can each afford to call all 7 of our elected officials that are in congress & we should be able to make some time to also stop by their offices here in CT
If you want to call their DC offices & send faxes of the signatures that you’ve gathered in support of Free Speech on the Internet check the Sec of State website http://www.ct.gov/sots/cwp/view.asp?a=3179&q=515402
