1st Congressional CT GOP Governor Candidate Debate Video

The CT GOP is trying something new this election season with the governorship at stake…

For the first time they had on Facebook Live streaming on both the Fox61 & CT GOP pages the video streaming of some of their candidates debating.

 First Congressional District Governor Candidate Debate at the Windsor Public High School 6pm to 9pm .

Only a few of the candidates were up on stage because they met the fundraising qualifications set by the party chairman. My understanding is that $75,000.00 minimum had to have been raised to be invited to the debate. There is a combination of both Declared as well as those who only have Exploratory Committees.

Declared Governor Candidate Joe Visconti who did not meet the fundraising qualifications was doing a competing Live Stream on his facebook page so that his critique of the candidates, their answers and some rebuttal to the debate questions – this is similar to what Jill Stein did back in 2016 when she was excluded from the debates.

Below is the video of the debate so that you can watch.

The CT GOP Chairman had a private poll after the debate which the results are being touted on the CT GOP facebook page but sadly the wider republican voting body was not privy to that poll which is quite disappointing. I hope that a better for CT GOP members poll will be emailed out for a true measure of who are the debate winners.

The Pinch

Sharing this repost from last year because the New General Assembly members are now officially seated & they need encouragement & reminder calls about why we voted for them to be in office

The democrats have been in power for many decades, some of them have been in office for longer than 30 years. They have gotten arrogant in their attitudes & they have grown protective of their expensive pet projects that benefit only their crony friends while putting our families at both financial as well as physical risk.

The democrats have gotten to be experts at both spending our tax money on wasteful projects & luxury items for themselves but additionally they have become experts in hiding the true costs when they roll items up & put them into the bonding.

Cross posted item from another Tillett4CT project

Call your elected officials at the state capitol this week

Tell them to Work on Balancing the Budget by making the cuts that are needed instead of cutting services that help our families.
Now is the time for our elected officials to get to work towards starting the much needed downsizing of our government.
They can start by cutting the extra expenses that they have forced us to pay for like big cuts to the CEP Program.
The CEP aka Citizens Election Program gives taxpayer money to the candidates that have “qualified” by raising certain levels of money. The amount varies by race & party but the amounts are in the hundreds of thousands of dollars for state senate & state rep positions & in the millions for the statewide races.
That money can be better spent making certain that we have the needed services for the families that are needed.

Did CNN Crew just joke about Trump Plane Crashing?

Wow just at a loss for words at how disrespectful for life they are over at CNN & especially the life of the president of the USA is just beyond comprehension…

Wayne Dupree posted this clip of the CNN Reporter & her off camera producer speaking

I did see some articles pass through the social media timelines that mentioned a firing due to the off air remarks but to see that they got it on video… to see it is quite disappointing but this year seems to be just one big disappointment after another with the major media not acting as it should.

Seriously is it approriate to joke on the job about planes crashing, especially the presidents plane in this day of terrorism? 

During the set-up for Trump’s Carrier speech, at about the 1:20 mark, a producer in the background says,

“Trump’s Plane is about to land. If I do this, he’s landed”

And then she says, “If I do this, he’s crashed, hopefully.”

You can see Suzanne Malveaux snicker and roll her eyes when she hears this.

Quitting Smoking using Vaping eCigs 2015

Had this in drafts for the longest time & finally went ahead & published it

We’re in the process of becoming “Successful Quitters”

The only Quitting that is acceptable is quitting an addiction to cigarettes or any other unhealthy habit that has taken a strong hold in our lives.

Although not fully smoke free Hubby is almost & I have cut down on the number which I’ve been smoking with the help of the e-Cigs.

Think that in Jan we’ll try to totally give up the tobacco & just use the vaporizers until we can give those up too.

Anyone looking to also give up smoking in the coming new year? Want to start a “Quit Club”, a support group online & off to get through the rough patches? Any successful quitters want to chime in on how you dealt with the quitting process?
