Top To Bottom...

graft and corruption in Connecticut. My pet peeve!
Connecticut Official Who Admitted Taking Lavish Gifts Now Holds State Job Investigating Government Fraud
NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- A state official who helped send former Gov. John G. Rowland to prison in a corruption case told a federal grand jury that she received many of the same expensive hotel getaways, lavish dinners and limousine rides that were used to bribe the governor's office. Yet Kristine Ragaglia made a deal for her testimony that spared her prosecution and allowed her to keep the $104,000-a-year state job she now has investigating government fraud.
Through sealed grand jury transcripts, FBI reports and personal diaries examined by The Associated Press, Ragaglia detailed how she took the luxuries while head of the state Department of Children and Families and helped steer a $57 million detention center contract to a developer who had provided gifts to Rowland. [continued]
Textbook - how to get the big fish... Karl? How does keeping your $157,000 pay and being spared prosecution sound to you? Naaaaaah, I got the goods on all of you already. ;)

The prison guards call her "The Fraud Broad." See the Hartford Courant for the rest of the story.

P&F Central.

Want more dirt? See my website.

I'd like to note that the DCF took my kids in retaliation for exposing their crimes and they literally wrote in their Order of Kidnapping that I was insane and dangerous to be saying "Rowland should be impeached for using the DCF as a federal money farm for the Tomassos."

Shucks. I said that in October 2003 and we had to wait 15 more months for the SOB to go to jail and over two years for my assertions about Ragaglia to hit the front page.

Welp, in Oct 2000 I predicted we would get "more war, more terrorism and a global economic recession" if we got Bush, and that was posted to the newsgroup.

If only I could wait until after stuff happens to predict it's gonna happen.

whew! I missed the last line the first time I read this, and thought you were offering complete absolution in return for Karl's knowledge! I'm glad to see it's not needed.

Two recommended reads, today:

Bush Age: The Meltdown

and Jane Hamsher's "Gold Bars Spins Back" at

Is anyone tracking all of this in a detailed timeline, complete with information flow charts?

Well it might sound like she got away with her crime but she will forever be labled a criminal. Time is not always good to evil doers who as they say get away with their criminal acts. New leaders new appointments and where does she go from there. Its like having the mark of Cain on her for head for everybody to she forever.

Thank you. Wolfie's a chemist, too, remember. That's where to look. Indonesia is a great place for us rock-collectors because of all of the naahsa crystals.

Gemstones. Another chemist's hobby. (We know where to look.)

Apparently the Corruptor/Decider in Chief of I'm above the Law, has proclaimed this Law Day.

I think an Indictment Day would be more appropriate.

I don't the rock of which you speak, but I have a lot of other rocks and crystals. I have some Labradorite, too, which is my favorite. Someone I worked with at Pfizer went there and brought me some back. That makes it a double treasure, ya know? Someone sees a special rock, and they think of you. Warms yer heart, don't it?

As a state employee, I am very offended how many my fellow public servants betray the trust of hardworking taxpayers.

I am ready to get back to the private sector in DC for good. I don't know how much I could take making less money and deal with mediocre work ethics.

Any takings for a workers comp paralegal?

Dear Contessa37,

I strongly recommend you watch the three videos on my website about scientific validity (I), valid markers of illness (II), and psychotropics-induced brain damage (II).

The same brain damage which occurs from street drug use, occurs from taking psychotropics and pain meds, since psychotropics ARE anesthetics, mechanistically.

Addictions to street drugs are every bit the valid brain damage that one acquires from Rx psychotropics.

All of youz lawyers ought to be looking at this science. The problem that we Lyme victims have is that no lawyers understand science.

There is a great chasm between our thinking styles.

Good Luck,

And Stay out of Corrupticut!!! if your value your life and your kids lives. They already did all their worst damage to me and my kids. That's why I stay and fight.

I'm fighting for the future victims.

Remember this is where Lyme disease started. And they bagged me and called me a terorist? And I had to plead guilty to that?

It was the science about the brain damage from psychotropics that so scared the crap out of them, because all they do is KID-NAP and KID-DRUG.

Eliminating their right to brain damage children would put more than half of the DCF and DMHAS out of jobs, and Yale would have no more pediatric psychotropics guinea pigs to experiment upon.

It's the same deal with the AIDS meds and the "no-nexus" foster children, that they experimented on that there was such a fuss about.

"No-Nexus" equals "Pediatric Guinea Pig."

Peace Takes Courage

by Cindy Sheehan, Gold Star Families for Peace

I have a new friend. She is a 15 year young peace activist named Ava Lowery. She is disgusted with the war and with the Bush regime and she started to use her talents for animation to make cartoons that oppose Bush and the war in Iraq.

She first came to my attention when I read an article about all of the ugly hate mail she is getting on her site for a particularly poignant and brilliant animation she has called: "WWJD." It is a heartbreaking piece that has a child singing: "Jesus loves me" and during the song she shows pictures of dead, wounded, bloody, and screaming Iraqi children. She wanted to show how Jesus loves Iraqi children also which is apparently a frightening concept to the people who practice Bushianity.

Sorry to hear about the corruption in Connecticut but then again a majority of the states have corruption, graft, and issues thanks to political favors by the Gerbil Administration. Folks, you have to understand that the corruption that you are reading and hearing about started before the Gerbil crawled into office before 2000. There were political favors and exchanging money from certain politicans from various states for the Gerbil's hidden agenda. I hope Connecticut can rally around Ned Lamont and give the buttkisser and buffoon Lieberman the golden boot!!!
