Well, after eleven years, the time has finally come to move away from the Blogger platform and transfer HatCityBLOG to Wordpress.
I designed this site backed in 2005 and after years of patching the design code, this site is simply unable to meet today's demands.
Over the next few weeks, you will see some rather drastic and long overdue changes to this site...and hopefully once the dust settles, a new HatCityBLOG will emerge that will easier to navigate on mobile devices.
Hang in there folks...I'll be back to FULL speed VERY soon.
In Connecticut’s U.S. Senate race, Democratic incumbent Richard Blumenthal holds a wide lead over Republican state representative Dan Carter, 54% to 33%. Almost six out of 10 likely voters (57%) view Blumenthal favorably, and 34% have an unfavorable opinion of him. Voters are not familiar with Carter. His favorable/unfavorable ratio is 9% to 18% with 42% undecided about him and 30% who have never heard of him.
Sixty days till election day and thirty percent of voters have no clue who Dan Carter is?
Someone please explain to me again why Dan Carter is running against Richard Blumenthal?
On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.
The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.
Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.
Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
