Colapietro endorsed by pro-choice group

The NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut PAC just released a list of candidates it's endorsing this year who are "deemed by the PAC to be 100 percent pro-choice."
Only one Bristol candidate appears among those endorsed - state Sen. Tom Colapietro, a Democrat who has represented the 31st District since 1992.
"All candidates endorsed by NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut PAC pledge, if elected, to vote against anti-choice bills, including those that would restrict access to the full spectrum of reproductive health services – from contraception, to carrying a healthy pregnancy to term, to choosing a safe and legal abortion. Pro-actively, endorsed candidates support comprehensive, age appropriate sexuality education that is based on medically accurate information, and all support equitable and timely access to emergency contraceptionm," according to the group's press release.
“We are so pleased to have so many candidates who are advocates for women’s reproductive health,” said Cari Carter, PAC chair, according to the release.
"The NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut PAC is confident that if elected, each and every one of our endorsed candidates will protect choice, work to improve access to emergency contraception, and defend against amendments and bills that attempt to chip away at our reproductive freedom.”

ABORTION IS MURDER!

That's why Colapietro is disliked as a Senator by Catholic Priests (like Father Nick).

Thanks for the lay up 1:23PM:

We hate Colopietro and his politics that tax and spend like drunken sailers. He would not know a tax cut if it caused him to bleed to death.

Hamzy wanting to give over 3 million dollars of Taxpayers money. But that's OK cause he is a Republican right? Get real or leave this State. We don't need people who don't have the courage to stand up and be counted.

What's wrong with this blog? Politicians names can be mentioned all the time but not Republicans like T.J. , Mocabe or Alex Carros?

What's worse than calling a politician a baby killer than that? It's OK to call politicians names and protect the names of these namecallers ?

I don't know the names of the namecallers -- and neither do you. They're anonymous, for better or worse.

Agreed that's why I'd like the same right as the namecallers that's all.

"What's worse than calling a politician a baby killer than that (sic)?"

--How about the killing of an unborn child?

--How about being endorsed by a group that promotes such action?

Steve Collins said...

To 5:16 a.m.:
I have no problem with people mentioning anyone's name in a reasonable context as long as they're not making the assumption that some anonymous posting was written by a particular person.
Politicians are, by and large, fair game. So is TJ, who is the GOP chairman in town, and to a lesser degree Mocabee, who remains some kind of GOP official.
But Alex is, as far as I know, just a regular citizen.

The Catholic Church has paid dearly for accepting homo-sexuals into the clergy .

Wait until the homo-sexual school teachers stop being protected by the unions .

Anonymous said...

Colapietro was against civil unions and gay marriage until the Democrat leadership and the AFL-CIO told him what to do on that issue. He's just a silly pawn.

The term "baby killer" was a joke in regards to Toupee Tom. Lighten up you whining hacks. He's sure to win again this year anyway.

Hey 8:27 "Colapietro Hater" As usual you clowns don't know what your talking about or your just plain liars! Colapietro Voted for Civil Unions and against gay marriage. As far as doing what anyone tells him you apparantly don't know him as well as you "Want " people to think you do. You just want him to do what you want, and apparantly he won't! (thank goodness) At least you know he doesn't hide his name or what he does.

They weren't homosexuals, they were child molesters...big difference...and the Catholic Church hasn't paid nearly enough for the hell that those children went through with those pervert priests.

The problem here is that being pro-life is a staple of the Roman Catholic Church (a great entity and stop commenting about child molesters aka gay-pedophiles).

Tom Toupee's opponent is divorced which makes him seen poorly with abiding Catholics as well. An example of the inept local GOP.

Being Pro-life just gives you something to complain about. But you're right it is a staple. "a pointy little object"

This endorsement by pro-abortionists is one more reason not to vote for Tom. My other reasons include him pushing past myself and my two young children on a street corner years ago in order to swear at Barbara Bush as her car took her to Muzzy Field. My children, now grown, still remember "that bad man." He's a poor example.

I know him and I don't know of anyone saying he was ever as rude as you republican liars. How many years ago are you talking about ? Your just grasping at straws like you always do. Boo Hoo !!!!!

My kids are now 25 and 23. Some years later, when I was a councilman, Tom came to our meeting and asked what the issues were in town. Yes, it was during campaign season. Being our senator, you'd think he might have noticed what problems we were dealing with. We filled him in, but didn't see him again for two years.

Anonymous said...

Obviuosly 5:49, :54 and 6:13 is the same imbecile.


Colapietro is the rudest, crudest politician Bristol has ever known. He was rude to a non-abortionist a couple of election cycles ago. He referred to Bobroske's fund raising as "Barnes money" and stated he "was not afraid...(of her or it)". Even his colleagues in the legislature from the Democrat Party have scolded him.

"5:49" is obviously an ignorant, blind, fool and a Colapietro groupie.

Seeing as we all know Tom Colapietro is on here I would like to ask what is he going to do to help lower taxes in this state and in this town? He loves to say his whole career has been for tax relief, but does anybody remember any tax relief since he got in office?

And 1:10 Pray tell us what good can you do when all you do is call people names on here? And of coarse coach your three goons on who to call names.What taxes are you willing to cut ?

Anonymous said...

First off I never call anybody names as I don't see what the point is and it seems childish and unproductive. I am asking Tom what Taxes he would cut! I think the business entity registration tax should be cut and I also think the gas tax should be cut or capped as why should the state make more money if the price of gas goes up and up! Seems like a windfall profit to me and how much of that extra money is actually going to road improvements in the state?

Anonymous said...

And how would you pay for it and who would you cut? And really we on here don't think that much about what people with no name want. Do you haave a name? Hus is well known by all of you name callers.

And the oil companies get greedier and richer under your philosophy. That's OK with you right ? That sounds like greed not windfall tax.

I would start with cutting the color used in the elected reps mailings done in their districts if not the whole mailings. I also would cut back on Blumenthal’s travel budget as I read somewhere he racked up over 100k of miles last year alone. Maybe we should try and spend less money in Hartford as what has been the return on the taxpayers’ investment in that city. I also would cut back on the amount of money people get to run campaigns for state races, why does somebody need 100k to run a state senate race?

So the state is being greedy as they rake in more money as the price of gas goes up? Isn't that what you just said? I totally agree with you on that front.

Funny how a person posting anonymously attacks another for posting anonymously really doesn't carry much weight.

Your whining means absolutley nothing!!!Except to T.J. A.M. and A.C. among a couple of others.

It doesn't make sense to attack somebody anonymously for posting anonymously!! Not once have you said anything of consequence, but attack, attack, attack!! Not once did I attack Tom I just asked what taxes he would cut in a polite manner. All the name calling and screaming is done by you.

Then you asked what taxes I would cut and what services I would cut and so I answered, not once ranting or raving like you. I thought this blog was a place to have meaningful discussion on issues in our state and town, so I try. Why should I put my name out there, when not once have you added anything to the discussion on hand? Do you want to attack me personally? Is that why you want my name? Do you have nothing to offer, but personal attacks? Try to have an actual discussion and not some diatribe that doesn’t make sense. What does this mean?

“It's obvious who you are and it is funny how you can try anonymously run the world! LMAO nobody cares what someone who doesn't have the courage to run or let anyone know that you care about or what the people want only that your beloved Republicans are smarter than anyone”


Just want to know what taxes Tom would cut? Not really out to run the world, just asked a question that many people are wondering out there, you should really try and do some relaxation exercises, it is not good for your health to be so angry.
