"The cradle of our republic is crumbling. Sad, sad times we’re in. Guess nobody teaches history up there anymore huh?"

Indeed. My father's family's roots are CT via MA (1632). Family members were active patriots in the Revolutionary War. They were involved in both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitutional Convention, and one served in Washington's cabinet. And now CT is at the forefront of betraying all of that. Shame on'em.

Roger that. Mine(fathers side) came from the Hudson River Valley (Green County men) area in NY and several of them signed the Coxsackie Declaration a month after the Concord fiasco and a year before the Declaration of Independence. Been here since the early 1700’s as far as I can trace back. Also revolutionary army troops, civil war, Spanish American, WW I, WW II, Korea, VN, Iraq 1 and 2, Afghanistan for kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews too.
