Here they come Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule and Dannel Malloy's cuts to the state budget.  How about more cuts to social service programs that help disabled Connecticut citizens?  That is the essence of these cuts.  In showing their strength and fears of taxpayers backlash,&nb...

Bob Swick's Blog: What Is The Point? I Could Write About?
1/17/15 3:25 AM
I do not know what is the point? I could write more about the Dannel Malloy and Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule continuing, never-ending budget deficits.  These are the same deficits that did not exist during the campaign according to Dannel Malloy and Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule....

Bob Swick's Blog: Skeptical-The Malloy Plan-More Taxes, New Tolls, More Taken Off Budget and Hidden From Taxpayers View
1/10/15 2:54 AM
Skeptical.  Would Tom Foley have made a better Governor than Danell Malloy?  I am certain he would have.  I am skeptical of the Malloy "Plan" that Mrs. Malloy alluded to in her recent attack on Tom Foley. I am skeptical of the Malloy "Plan" as we still have not seen a coherent "Plan" ...

Bob Swick's Blog: Hartford's Spoils System Continues Unchecked
1/3/15 3:28 AM
From my last post on 12/27/14 I mentioned the enormous raises that Dannel Malloy is giving a small minority of his political inner circle using taxpayers monies.  In a year of supposed fiscal restraint who cares about this $1.4 million dollars of taxpayers monies other than the taxpayers whose ...

Bob Swick's Blog: 2015-The Year Of Higher Salaries For Connecticut Commissioners 2015-The Year Of More Fiscal Mismanagement
12/27/14 3:47 AM
2015 is around the corner.  I wrote about many different ways that Connecticut and Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule have misappropriated money, lost money and in general did a rather poor job in spending taxpayers monies.  Their reward was reelection in most cases.  Thus we as tax...

Bob Swick's Blog: Malloy Owns It Or Do Connecticut Taxpayers Own It?
12/17/14 3:49 PM
He owns it now.  Dannel P. Malloy says he's righted the ship and is ready to set a new course-12/17 Ct Mirror.  Governor Malloy has stated It took him awhile but Connecticut is now on the right track.  What right track?  The track of probably pushing more spending off budget ...

Bob Swick's Blog: Do Legal Citizens and Taxpayers of Connecticut Have Any Rights?
12/3/14 2:57 AM
Just curious if legal citizens and taxpayers of Connecticut have any rights?  Do we have any protections based upon law and the Constitution of the state of Connecticut which protect us?  Or are we now legally bound economic serfs to an omnipotent state government which at its own whim can...

Bob Swick's Blog: The Malloy Deficit-Or When A Deficit Is Not A Deficit
11/18/14 12:57 PM
Confusion.  When is a deficit not a deficit?  When Dan Malloy is running for reelection along with Hartford's Omnipotent One Party Rule.  The Governor who apparently cruised to reelection making up campaign laws as he went along won by a whopping 25,000 votes in an election where over...
