Old dogs have no teeth

Chris Dodd, who has about a week to go before he’s removed from the Senate, slipped a $100 million grant to UConn’s hospital in Farmington into the Obama Care bill. But now that he’s going nowhere, the money went instead to a hospital in Ohio. So Dodd’s constituents will be sending their dollars to Ohio. On the other hand, why should Ohio’s taxpayers have subsidized Connecticut’s? A nice lesson for those states, like ours, that send more money to Washington than they ever get back.

    Monsieur Christophe, as you know, the Connecticut Land Company administered settlement in the Connecticut Western Reserve in present-day Northeast Ohio. WikiLeaks says, “The pioneers, descendants of colonial Americans, came mostly from New England and the Mid-Atlantic states. A portion were from Connecticut, settling in northeastern Ohio on the Connecticut Western Reserve, considered an inheritance by younger New Englanders.[28] They were sophisticated, educated, and open minded, as well as religious.[28] Some of the original settlers from Connecticut were Amos Loveland, a revolutionary soldier, and Jacob Russell.[28]“

    Dodd, rightfully sent off into the pasture, the old flatulent bovine that he has become. Good bye, gaseous windbag.

    Whoever described the Senate as a bunch of elderly grifters was no doubt thinking of Dodd

    Only problem is that he’s been replaced by an even more reprehensible scumbag.
