"Traitor Alert (again)! "The whistleblower complaint that has triggered a tense showdown between the U.S. intelligence community and Congress involves trump’s communications with a foreign leader, according to two former U.S. officials familiar with the matter. trump’s interaction with the foreign leader included a “promise” that was regarded as so troubling that it prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community..."

Will The Evening Sun have a reporter at tonight's NCSD BOE meeting? I think we would all like to know what the forensic audit found--as it may shed some light on why the former assistant deputy superintendent was relieved of his job.

"...please notice that one candidate has zero actual support" I noticed that one candidate already has a full time job at school. Will that overpaid employee be expected to handle town supervisor work during his existing work day? (if he is even elected). I bet the Ed won't post this bc "people may be able to deduce his name". I say he is fair game if runs for public office and his name is already on yard signs.

It's gonna be a big, bold, beautiful Blue world when President Warren, V.P. Abrams and Attorney General Harris start the clean up and restoration of our democracy. Rejoining the Paris Climate Accords, implementing the Green New Deal and passing comprehensive immigration reform and common sense gun control laws. Not to mention, restoring this country's honor and good word with its allies. Then perhaps we can once again be a voice for the oppressed and a sanctuary for the persecuted.

Remove the malignant narcissist in 2020.

I have picked the fourth person to be National Security Advisor. I am pleased to announce my very special, Er successful presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs Will be Robert O’Brien. I have worked long and hard on, Er, with him. He has been successful Er, well except for Tice, that reporter guy, and those other hostages in Iran. I picked him because he doesn’t like Obama either.

Fixing Norwich's drug problem is easy. Increase law enforcement. The problem is doing it without homeowners complaining about increased taxes to foot the bill. Nothing is free.

MFN. Thank you for the information for NCSD. Never give it a thought to check with the mail carrier or the post office.

Are you kidding me, concern over Gus Macker safety, so lets repave the street. How about repaving the city streets in Norwich that people who live here and drive on everyday. Talk about a waste of taxpayers money just so a few people can play basketball for a trophy two days out of the year. How about playing Gus Macker in parking lots there are a lot of big empty ones in the area with no businesses.

“Do to the lack of qualified people for the office of POTUS.

They got Lewandowski to admit on the record that he told Mueller everything Mueller says he told him. In other words, Mueller didn't make any of that ish up. And then they got him to admit that Donald Trump asked him, a private citizen, to communicate to the attorney general that he should unrecuse himself from an investigation of the president and lie to the American public about it.

Woman from McDonough - NCSD calendars go out to all Norwich postal patrons so check with your mail carrier or the post office to see why you aren't getting yours. You can also pick one up from any of the school buildings or the district office.

Why does management and it's corporate headquarters of a unnamed business in the City of Norwich, continue to let people loiter, let drug activity and fights continue on it's property? They ended it in one of their other locations, the neighboring business did. Many people have stopped going there because of all the trouble and concerned about their safety. They don't seem to realize it is giving their business a bad name and are losing business.

Me too. I am way better off this year. Just need to outrun Obama Care now that my Med. Insurance is 3 times what it was before that idea. I say 2020 TRUMP all the way and get the whiners below deck. I also feel we should stop giving college educations to foreigners and instead help our children born here. Stop giving anything to people entering the country but a job and identification along with citizenship application. Americans FIRST !

If you are a true Republican or an Independent voter please take note of the state of our democracy. If you are a trumper, you own this. Firstly we don't live in a democracy we live in a Constitutional Republic! Secondly your incessant whining is so embarrassing. You really need to relax, you'll get your turn in 2032 after Don junior's second term. It's in your best mental health interest to learn to say Mr. President Trump.

A great opportunity today to see a textbook example of a lickspittle. The subject is appearing before Congress and makes even the worst sycophants look dignified. Oh, Corey, what has he promised you?

If destroying our environment and jeopardizing our health is winning, then man, are we ever winning! "The Trump administration is expected on Wednesday to formally revoke California’s legal authority to set tailpipe pollution rules that are stricter than federal rules, in a move designed by the White House to strike twin blows against both the liberal-leaning state that President Trump has long antagonized and the environmental legacy of President Barack Obama."

Better (not) head back to Tennessee Jed: "Tennessee has unveiled a plan to convert Medicaid into a block grant, an idea long supported by conservatives that would rupture the federal government’s compact with states for safety-net insurance for the poor. Under block grants, the government would instead pay a state a lump sum each year while freeing it from many of Medicaid’s rules, including who must be allowed into the program and what health care is covered." MAGA Baby!

Angie, let me get this straight, you are crediting SOCRATES with a quote about George W. Bush!? Are you insane? Or are you just coming up with more and more incredulous statements to see how far you can go? Plus, your sources like NY Times and Rolling Stone, so well known for their truthful and un-biased reporting, are not serving you well. If you only read (and believe) left leaning publications than your thinking will be skewed.

25 years ago "there was nobody here." We have the cleanest water, the cleanest air that we’ve ever had in the history of our country, right now,” Trump said. Trump corrected himself after saying that the media “would get me on that one.” “Let’s say the history of our country over the last 25 years,” he opined. “I would say they probably had cleaner water, cleaner air because there was nobody here. So I have to be very accurate.”

"If America actually had free and fair elections, the last Republican President would have been George H W Bush, and the Supreme Court would have eight Democratic-appointed justices, the gerrymander would be unconstitutional, the Voting Rights Act would still be alive, the corrupt Citizens United and McCutcheon 0.1% speech decisions would not be American law, and the ACA would be functioning much more smoothly for the American people." - Socrates
