So What Is Your Legislature Wasting Its Time On?


Egads.. The Connecticut legislature may consider legislation to establish an official state punk rock song. Our state already uses "Yankee Doodle,” as their official state song, but this legislature is considering adding both an official polka, and maybe even an official punk rock song.

These are the same people who want to give themselves raises and make it a full time legislature.

So this super-majority Democrat legislature apparently doesn't have anything better to do then to consider adopting a bill declaring “Connecticut Fun,” a 1983 tune by a band called Punkestra, the official state punk-rock song.

This is certainly more important than .. say.. protecting CT citizens from eminent domain abuse.. or giving us tax relief.. or developing an energy plan.

I am so glad these people have their priorities straight.
