The trouble is, the President with his Executive Orders and Congress with new legislation are jumping the gun (no pun intended) before a thorough
investigation is completed. Don't you think politicians should at least get all the facts and do their due diligence before reacting in such a
So? That doesn't change the fact that the OP is misleading. Anyone in the United States can go to CT-N and see the replay of this testimony on
their computer from the website, it was not deleted, it was not censored, and all of out local media (CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, Radio, Newspaper) did
stories on this guy's testimony, and nowhere was it censored or did anyone claim that our state politicians had their rears handed to them. It was
civilly done, the legislators all thanked this gentleman for his testimony and they went on to the next person.
I don't see the national media posting video from other states that have public hearings, so why is it such a massively huge deal that they aren't
posting Connecticut's legislative hearings, where's New York's hearings on the subject or California's, that's right,, they aren't there either,
and I would venture a guess that every state has someone like this person that is passionate and has spoken out, it's part of the process.
I have always been opposed to reactionary legislation and rule making, I speak out against it every single day, albeit locally and with regards to the
new draconian security measures they have put in effect at our schools, which makes it impossible for a parent to get in at all without being
subjected to TSA style harassment from school staff. That was reactionary, they didn't think first, they just classified parents as the enemy, and
went from there. That's not on the national media either, gee.. is that some large conspiracy? No not really, I can't see CNN or FoxNews carrying a
hearing from our town where residents threatened to kick out the entire Board of Ed and Town Council for the fact that they were reacting, rather than
being rational. It's a matter of how these things are done, CT-N has it's own network, it's only on cable in Connecticut, at the time of the
hearings, even our local stations had to get the footage from CT-N to run it, anyone could ask for it in the 24 hours before it was up on the web,
it's public, not hidden, not censored and costs nothing....
So I stand by my comments, the OP is misleading, and patently false, and just because it didn't make National News doesn't mean it was not discussed
as nauseum locally, which, unfortunately is where it SHOULD be discussed..it was after all a Connecticut hearing......for Connecticut.
