Caligiuri / Murphy: Elim Park @ 9am on Friday

From the Chamber of Commerce:

Elim Park is hosting the Congressional Candidates on Friday, October 22nd at 9:00a.m. Join Congressman Christopher Murphy and State Representative Sam Caligiuri for remarks and a question and answer segment. A Continental Breakfast will be served. The event is free of charge.

I like Chris, but voting for Sam was easy. Even before the borrow'n'spend issues comes good government issues. And like Vickie Nardello who sits silent as Mary Fritz and Tom Gaffey abuse their power, Chris sits silent as the likes of Charlie Rangel abuses his power.

I'm far from a believer that a GOP Congress will be any sort of panacea. But I'm at the point where we may just need to start cleaning house every election until we get good people in there. Jim Himes has been in only one term, but we already know he reports to Wall Street... so even freshmen need to go. And I didn't say that two years ago when Murph voted for the bailout that I vociferously opposed. But things have only gotten worse. At this point, I have zero tolerance for any of them who sit silent.

And another upcoming event:

The Chamber of Commerce and The Cheshire Herald invite you to a "Meet & Greet" on Monday, October 25th from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at Yellowfin's Seafood Grille. Many of the candidates in the local election will be available for brief remarks and networking.

I'm not sure if these are open events, but I've heard of them from different sources. So I'm guessing they're open, but you should call the Chamber @ 272-2345.

Come on, Sheldon (Chamber of Commerce),
you know that Sam Caligiuri is a state Senator, not a 'representative'.

I can't wait to go back to the good old days of no controls. Wall Street, the banks, the oild idustry, the health industry should not have any controls, they and everybody else should be able to do whatever they want, that's real freedom.

And, we should eliminate medicare, social security, the FDA, the Dept of Agriculture, the Dept of Education, the Dept of Ttransportation and others.
