MADE THIS WHEN GOVERNOR DANNEL MALLOY WAS ELECTED (KINDA ELECTED WITH THE HELP OF AN AMAZING ABOUT OF VOTES ‘FOUND’ WHEN NEEDED…
It’s all too true… The worst place to retire in the country and that doesn’t say much for people who have not retired… This place is the pits.

Check out this story from WFSB in CT:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) – A new bill being proposed would make public all the names and addresses of handgun owners in the state of Connecticut.
The bill, introduced by state Rep. Stephen Dargan of West Haven, would make the information public under Connecticut’s Freedom of Information Act.
The bill would reverse a decision to keep the information private.
Dargan told Eyewitness News that he wanted to start the conversation on gun reform.
He said the information would be valuable for parents and help them make decisions on what friends’ homes they would allow their children to visit.
YARBZ: Not only would this be ‘help’ to parents deciding on which homes their kids can visit, it’ll help criminals and ne’er–do–well’s all across the state when deciding on which homes to visit… The Connecticut State Legislature… What a bunch of retards.

They began having happy hours in the outdoor beer garden where liter beers are the price of half liters and the meter and half meter boards are half off… Wonderful!

This was on our home page this morning. I think it’s a very nice thing to do. Only the names have been changes to protect their identitiy and certain peoples employment…
A Message from [Leader of SCIC]
I have been a part of this wonderful organization since 1992, and over these almost 20 years, I have become convinced that there is something very special – even extraordinary – about the SCIC family. If it’s possible for an organization to have a spirit, I believe we do. It is carried in the hearts of more than 30,000 employees who feel an unusual connection, an attachment almost, to the organization. It is extraordinary, and it is one of the elements that make working here so very exceptional.
I’m sorry to share with all of you the sad news that one of our own has lost one of her own in service to our country. We learned that Ben Osborn, the son of Beverly Osborn of our Glens Falls, New York office, was killed in service in Afghanistan. Ben’s funeral service will be held later today. I know that all of you will feel deeply for the entire Osborn family as they mourn the loss of their son.
I recognize that there may be other members of employees’ families who have served and been lost. If you have lost a family member in active service, please send me a comment through this link, and we will post the names of others who have died serving our country so that we can recognize them all.
I also want to embrace a tradition that began during World War I but that carried throughout the wars of the 20th century. Flags were displayed from homes, businesses, schools and churches to indicate, through the use of a blue star on the flag, each active service member in the U.S. military. If a family received notification that their loved one had been lost, the star was changed to a gold star.
For the next year, our company stationery will be printed with a small star at the bottom of the page. The star will have no explanation, but it won’t need one. We will all understand that it is a silent recognition of Ben’s and others’ remarkable service, and it will serve as a daily reminder to all of us – about the service of all young men and women who stand in harm’s way every day.
My wife, [Leader-in-law], and I extend our sincere condolences to the entire Osborn family and to other families who have lost loved ones in the service of our country, and we hope that the wonderful memories of these sons and daughters will warm their hearts.

This post card image is kinda small but I found the information on the back to be interesting and sad. Sad because Hartford is now nothing compared to what it was. That’s what Hartford and Connecticut deserve given the poor management and anti-business policies and tax rates in the city and state. The politicians of Hartford rival any and all crappy corrupt politicians in any city in any state.
While were on the subject, why don’t politicians have to pass tests like claims handlers have to? We’re required to take CE (Continuing Education) with classes dealing with the technical issues we deal with as well as ethics. Before we can get our adjusters license we have to take a State administered test showing we have a solid understanding of the applicable laws and ethical standards. Politicians should be required to do the same, ethics in particular! Everyone running for office should have to show a solid understanding of business principles. Can you imagine the uproar and screams of protest from the often stupid, ignorant, uneducated blithering idiots running our cities towns and states? We must make this happen. Government is business, if you know nothing about how to run a business you are out!
Anyway, here is the postcard and the info that was on the back:
“Hartford, Capitol of the State of Connecticut, is an important commercial and manufacturing city, called the insurance city because forty-six nationally known Insurance Companies maintain home offices in Hartford. The Travelers Tower, 527 feet in height, is the tallest in New England while the Aetna Life Insurance Company is housed in the largest Colonial structure in the world. The State Capitol is a beautiful building erected in 1877 at a cost of over $3,000,000. The city has many parks including Elizabeth Park, scene of an annual Rose festival in June.”
