You’re gonna die

You're gonna die. Yeah believe it or not whether you eat only whole grain never use sugar and are never exposed to second or even 5th hand smoke you are gonna die the same as the person who eats trans fats, sugar and smokes tobacco . The person eating the "evil" food and smoking may die a little sooner or maybe not. I think they'll enjoy their life more by doing what they enjoy. No one gets out alive no matter what the health and safety Nazis say and seem to think. Let them live(?) their lives the way they want but stay out of mine, I want to live, enjoy and experience life. I read a short story once back in the 60's it was about some guy who was pretty messed up after the war of 1812 and 7 doctors told him he had a year to live, he out lived 6 of them and the 7th was going downhill pretty quick he said. But his moral was too many people are so worried about dying they go thru life with one foot in the grave because they're so scared they never really live so when they die it's no big deal just putting the other foot in. He believed in living life to the fullest then dying and being done with it. Or as a friend of mine says

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, poles in one hand, beer in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "Holy Shit, What a Run!""

So to all you safety and health Nazis out there and that's what you are Nazis you want to impose your will and fear of life on others leave me and those like me alone. Don't eat the evil food that's your right but don't make me live on your diet and fears that's not your right. This use to be the home of the free and the brave thanks to the safety and health Nazis it is now the land of the cowards and wimps.

I have a question for our elected officials.  Connecticut has an income tax, sales taxes, business taxes, gas taxes, professional license fees, drivers license fees, transfer taxes, death taxes, motor vehicle fees, to name a few of the revenue sources that feed the insatiable financial appetite of the government.  Yet it is not sated, so it has a gambling operation called the Lotto and all its games but still not enough money, so for desert the insatiable beast collects money from the casinos.  Can you imagine how high our taxes would be without these sources?  You would think a fiscally responsible government having the Lotto and the casino income would eliminate either the income or sales tax.

With all this revenue how can any elected public servant ask the overburdened taxpayers of CT for another penny in taxes?

Due to increases in day to day living I have had to trim my home budget.  Why should the government not have to do the same?  Elected public servants are in positions of trust to do the best they can for the taxpaying citizens of the state.  So how can they justify any increase in government taxes or spending? Yet all I hear is we have to raise this or that tax. How about NO INCREASES!  Cut expenditures, just as every taxpayer has had to.  Why should we the citizens always have to give up our part of the American Dream to satisfy the insatiable hunger of a government that was put in place to serve and protect us?

Any politician care to answer this?
