“Take CT Back” is the theme for the convention this year
Many who are attending the convention are getting rooms Friday night so they don’t have so long to drive down for the 2nd day, If you’re going to attend & haven’t yet gotten your room I suggest that you do it quickly before they sell out.
This #ThrowBackThursday is in the spirit of fun over the “necessary evil” of paying the federal income taxes.
Do you live in a high state income tax state or a no income tax state?
How long has your state had it’s income tax? Add your comments below so we can talk about taxes in our states.
I recall back in the 90’s when I was busy raising young children when Connecticut became an income tax state.
It was a very nasty election year with Lowell Weicker winning the race for governor simply because he LIED about being willing to veto or sign an income tax bill, he claimed he was against starting an income tax in CT.
Then once he was elected in to office he started with the push to start the income tax rather than getting the state spending at a level that matched or was less than the amount of taxes collected each year.
Do you do your own taxes or do you pay a tax preparer?
If you do your taxes yourself do you use one of the popular tax preparer computer programs such as TurboTax?
Which program do you prefer to use?
But remember #TaxationIsTheft in our current system
Cross Posted Item from another Tillett for CT project
With April 18th being the due date this year for our taxes quickly approaching…
I thought I’d share this video from Remy about the craziness that we all feel about how the chore of doing the yearly taxes…
Do you do your own taxes or do you pay someone else to do them for you?

Can the Right and the Left build bridges and coalitions to be able to make the state and maybe the country a better place?
Can we find common ground to start from to solve some of the problems we face?
Map of CT Divided into 5 Congressional Districts
Can Conservatives, Republicans, Unaffiliated, Independents, Democrats & Liberals find the common ground & work together to solve the many problems in our state and country is a question that I’ve been mulling around since last week when 2 democrats showed up at a conservative meeting in late Feb that was accidently posted publicly comparing it to the town hall meetings where the “Indivisible” group members were in a “Lovefest” with the democrats vs the Bullying that was done at the republican town hall meetings….
I have friends and family that are democrats as well as republican, libertarian and unaffiliated like most of us do and when it’s a one on one discussion even if we do not agree 100% on the issues we can talk civilly and agree to disagree on some items all of the people I know agree that the destruction of property that is being shown is just plain wrong.
One thing that I have noticed is that my right leaning friends know more about many of the issues but my left leaning ones do not. In fact it seems that my left leaning friends are surprised to hear about some of the issues because they’ve not been told about the items which are the problems because the media many times do not cover an issue in full or at all…
Many times the issues that the right side groups have are not spoken about in the media or if they are the media has such a warped coverage that it’s more “propaganda” than actual news coverage…
While the leaders of the right have no real outreach into the public their message and information is not getting out to the public but the leaders of these left-wing groups have the megaphones of the liberal left-wing media newspapers, television news and radio.
One question is why is only the left-wing given the ear of the public that the right just does not have? Where can people go to get educated on both sides of the issues?
How can people work together when the proper information is not put in front of them so that Informed Decisions can be made by the public? When people have both sides of an issue we can talk about what the problems are and how we can solve the problems.
What are your thoughts about what can be done to correct this problem? Leave your thoughts below in the comments.
Other important questions you should ask yourself is “Who Benefits from an Misinformed or Under-Informed Public?” and “Why are the media going along with this?”.
