East Haven Politics at its Finest

East Haven is Getting Horrible in Politics

I know I have been blogging a bit recently but this is an extremely imprtant blog to me...

It's election time in East Haven and we all know what that means- arguments, allegations, and slander all come into play. Well, I am SICK of it. Why can't the democrats and republicans get along for once? Each side says that they have the best interest of the town at heart but do they really? It is constant bashing of Mayor Maturo, the chairmen of the DTC or RTC, and even ctizens who state their views here on the Patch. But here is the thing...We ll makes mitakes, don't we? Isn't that what makes us human? So why can't we just leave whats in the past, in the past. Why do people need to bash Mayor Maturo over a comment he made about, oh I do not know, 8-10 months ago? Why must people harrass and bother the chairmen of the DTC and RTC? Because they represent their party and may be outspoken at times? Look, I get that this cirticism comes with the territory but enough is enough. Our political figures in town, some, not all need to grow up a little. I will not name names but I ENCOURAGE any reader to please name names and examples when they comment so we can actually see the truth. I am a registered Democrat and I will admit that but one, I do not and will not go around bashing the Republicans in town. Heck, I'll even be voting for a few next November. Two, it is tiring... and annoying. I will go against my party if I have to because unlike many people, I actually care about this town. At this rate we may as well wipe the entire slate clean and vote in Jacobo, Luigi, and myself (Not an insult guys just using you as an example). At least we all would be new and possibly help the town more than the people who constantly insult everything in town. So please, comment!!!!!

ASmith.... trolls are sad people, living their lonely lives vicariously through those they see as strong and successful.Disrupting a stable newsgroup gives the illusion of power, just as for a few, stalking a strong person allows them to think they are strong, too. For trolls,like yourself, any response is 'recognition'; you are unable to distinguish between irritation and admiration; your ego grows directly in proportion to the response, regardless of the form or content of that response. Trolls, rather surprisingly, dispute this, claiming that it's a game or joke; how sad do you have to be to find such mind-numbingly trivial timewasting to be funny? Remember that trolls are COWARDS.; they'll usually post just enough to get an argument going, then sit back and count the responses (Yes, that's what they do!). Troll - Angler or Underbridge Dweller?

With the November elections right around the corner, and for those really interested in what our federal elected officials in WDC have been doing these last years, there are 3 great web sights that follow votes, donated money aleigned to votes, the whole ball of wax so to say. www.govtrack.us www.opencongress.org www.opensecrets.org Want to get educated and learn - pick one and search. They are very intesting and easy sites to navigate.

now the mores I thinks about it. might have been yer missus that said the kangaroo court, it was hard to tell since ya was a both hollerin at the ole guys on the police commission and the crowd was so rowdy. so if I attributed the kangaroo court to the wrong one of yas my apologies there, but whichever of ya yelled it...it was wrong...and the way ya treated those ole fellas at that meetin...it was wrong..they was only doin their jobs. and luck at what happened now...that there fella pled guilty...so ya owes them an apology dont ya.
