Ask Questions Then Ponder the Answers

I was watching the people who came in & went into the polling station in Windsor on Tuesday May 12th 2015

It was interesting to see just how many people who showed up to vote actually didn’t even know why they were there & what the answers would mean if they made one of 2 choices

Frustrating as I worked the polls was that people would ask to see an explanation but there wasn’t one that actually clearly explained what the 2 options would mean to the voter & working the polls we workers have to be Unbiased so we can’t give detailed answers as to how people should vote

A YES vote = Higher Taxes if the Budget Passed

A No Vote = No Higher Taxes Wanted & if the Budget Failed it goes back to the Town Council to Adjust

The School Board portion of the budget is almost 3 times that of the rest of the town budget but no one really understands why it costs so much because “the powers that be” aren’t really honest about where & what the budget money is being spent on (besides the excess of 6 figure employees) so parents are conned into thinking that pre-k is the solution to a problem that is actually created by the flawed system that is designed to fail the students …

Below a clip from Jonathan Pelto’s blog on CT education…

“So Connecticut parents and taxpayers;

When you are being abused or hearing about children and parents being abused and harassed for opting out of the unfair and discriminatory Common Core SBAC test or when you are paying more in taxes and watching important school programs and services cut, now that thanks to our elected and appointed  officials we are pissing away $100,000,000.00 a year forcing children to take a test that will tell us that students from rich families tend to do better and student from poor families tend to do worse on standardized tests.”

Can you afford an out of control Board of Ed that spends money without consideration of the costs for both our taxpaying families now but also in the future 3, 5 even 10 years down the road?

Can you afford to allow an out of control Board of Ed to experiment with your children’s education with implementing programs that do not work. These schemes are only profiting big corporations while giving our children a substandard education as is being proven time & again with the common core not only here in Windsor but across the nation?

Can you afford to not start asking questions about why the Board of Ed so divided?

Why the democrats are refusing to answer the questions that the Republican BoE members are asking?

Why are the democrats complaining about the Budget Referendum Voting Process when they lose but not when they win?

Why are the democrats trying to push for our Right to Say NO to the Budget AWAY? Who are they to say that We the People who Pay the Taxes Do Not Deserve Our Right to Say NO?

Taxation Without Representation ring a bell? The rich tyrants in the democrat party are trying to force us into debt & out of our homes so that they can pay their crony friends 6 figure salaries at our expense! The tyrants are angry because when we vote NO to their budgets they have to cut back the plans they have to give away our money to their schemes…

Can you afford to keep granting more & more money to the Board of Ed when they have mismanaged the money they already been given over the years? The school budget has been steadily increasing but we’re not seeing positive results from all of our sacrifices. Private & Magnet Schools spend less money & graduate their students at a higher rate & better educated.

The problem is how the administration of the schools & the expensive testing being done that takes away from learning time & the common core curriculum

If you are tired of paying increasing taxes while not seeing results in education & suffering reductions in town services; then it is time for you to call the town hall & tell them to #StopTheOutOfControlBoardOfEd

Life is Changing Quickly

Who knew how much our lives could change in only a few short years?

This time last year I was merely a member of my RTC helping our local town council & board of ed members get elected, this year…. well surprise surprise I’m an actual candidate for state senate. LOL who saw that coming? I didn’t see it but I have gone ahead & made the choice to take an active part in the political process & work to make positive changes in our government at the state level.

Seeing politics from the eyes of a civilian that has not been politically active, it has been quite an eyeopening experiencectgop constitution dont mess with it abe lincoln quote Not just about the all the things which go into trying to run a campaign but also the process of it all. It’s been both a positive thing as well as negative in seeing just how dirty our elected officials have been in making certain that they stay in power.

I’m not liking the nastiness from people who have been friends fighting over their candidates, I do now understand why people say the 2 things never to talk about are politics & religion – some of the things I’ve seen & heard by people who have been at rallies together & picnics & bbqs… well some of it is way past mean & hurtful but down right heartbreaking to see from people that I respected & once held in high esteem

I’m also saddened by just how many people in the state do not even know what is going on but actually chose ignorance because they do not want to take an interest but only complain about what is wrong & nothing at all to fix it

So LIFE Changes Quickly sometimes for the better sometimes for the worst

We have choices in some of the changes & others we do not.

The most important thing is like the well known Serenity Prayers says “Change the Things that We Can”; I’m not 100% sold on the idea of accepting the line about “Accepting the Things We Can’t Change” because I’m not 100% sold on the idea that there isn’t anything that can’t be changed in some manner by Prayer & by Action of some sort

I pray that people near & far take some time to seriously consider life & what it offers & start to get active in it & start making positive realistic changes (0;} will you join me on the journey to make at least 1 positive change in life?

#StandWithCT #2AClapBack #CTChoosesLiberty

This week will be Rant & Rave on the show at Around the Cabin. The 1st of April was another awful nightmare addition of the gungrabbing laws forced upon law abiding citizens.

There will no longer be allowed Long Gun sales if a person doesn’t have a pistol permit.

Where a Hunting license was enough to be able to buy a long gun that is no longer the case now in CT.

No more long gun sales private citizen to private citizen now ALL Sales MUST Be RECORDED WITH THE STATE OF CT APPROVAL

 

There is a rally up in NY state that I have seen pictures coming back via facebook.

There wass already a 2A Rally scheduled at the Capitol in Hartford on the 1 year anniversary of the signing of SB1160. The Bloomberg funded GunGrabbing Mommy groups actually tried again to get the permits cancelled. When they were unsuccessful in that the racists turned over to the social media tool ThunderClap to use social media to bully the elected to bowing to their will.

This time we law abiding citizens are answering this attempt to silence us & bully us with using the very same tool to send our reply ENOUGH!

The gunowners group CTCarry has started their own ThunderClap demanding the repeal of the unconstitutional law & declaring that CT Chooses Liberty.

We law abiding citizens have been adding our voices to this message.

We invite you to add your social media voices to ours if you Stand With CT & Protecting Our Constitutional Rights including the Right to Keep & Bear Arms.

Click the link below add your Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr & then at Noon on the 5th of April at the start of our 2A Civil Rights Rally in CT a single message will be sent out.

Once you have signed on Share with your Friends & Family the link so they can also Make Our Voices Be Heard
