VOTING AND VALUES IN CONNECTICUT

August 27, 2010

0

Understandably, perhaps, voting-age citizens are not interested in “values”, nor on issues unrelated to the economy and governance, in this ‘barely-post-recession’ year.  The media, especially, has tuned out any ‘America’s values and ethics’ debate (it was a topic in the previous decade).  Even conservative radio talk-show hosts steer away from discussion of Life, abortion, euthanasia, […]

UNDERSTANDING CONNECTICUT’S ABORTION STATUS

August 23, 2010

The Connecticut Department of Public Health’s annually published statistics on abortions in the state are consistently 40% lower than the Alan Guttmacher Institute’s survey count of abortions in Connecticut.  The Department of Public Health somehow overlooks some 4,500 abortions a year in Connecticut. For 2005, the CT DPH lists 12,110 abortions in-state, while the AGI […]

August 22, 2010

Under no illusions as to the perceived important issues facing voters this November, namely jobs/economy/tax increases/deficit/ healthcare/Afghanistan/environment/illegal immigration and all the rest, cccf nevertheless proposes that LIFE – in particular “Viable Life in the Womb” (at or after 22 weeks’ gestation) and the massive abortion by D&E Dismemberment of these potentially viable children in America […]

THE N.Y.Times TRASHES CONNECTICUT’S McMAHON

August 21, 2010

On Friday, August 20th, N.Y.Times’ editorial “At The Far Edge” introduces an anti “far-right-of-the-spectrum” (i.e. Republican) candidates’ story with the trashing of Linda McMahon as Connecticut candidate for U.S. Senate, who “made millions” as CEO of the “sex and violence”-oriented World Wrestling Entertainment. Professional wrestling is not a sport, it’s a form of entertainment, watched […]

COMMENT & CCCF RESPONSE RE DELAURO & JERRY LABRIOLA

August 18, 2010

0

Connecticut’s 3rd District has Jerry Labriola running against Rosa DeLauro for U.S. Congress in 2010.  DeLauro is the original Emily’s List Executive Director (the entity promoting pro-abortion Democrat women to elective office) and is the most pro-abortion Catholic legislator in Washington, D.C. Previous cccf posts have touched on DeLauro’s pro-abortion positions, ‘manifesto’ and votes against […]

TIME TO RECAP AND ASSESS

August 16, 2010

0

Returning now from a (necessary) trip, it is past time for cccf to assess what happened in Connecticut in the primaries, where things stand vis-a-vis Life and Late-Term Abortion – and to evaluate the candidates for Senate, Congress, Governor. Will anyone mention Life as an issue?  In the past – “Not likely, not in this […]

CONNECTICUT RACE FOR DODD’S SENATE SEAT

August 8, 2010

1

The Republican Primary is in two days and the local papers are full of stories about former Congressman Simmons’ turnabout re-entry into the Senate seat race, Schiff’s attack ad against McMahon showing her kicking a pro-wrestler in an embarrassing place, and McMahon already planning for a victory celebration. Not a pretty picture. Simmons’ main home […]
