Politicial Science Class in Session

Oh, the political intrigue. My business partner and I were talking this morning about some financials for Village Works. "I heard Denise Nappier giving a speech," she said, "and she said that the business entity tax is no more!" What?! That is truly good news, though we haven't been able to get a confirmation on that yet. Still, if she heard it, then it should be out there somewhere and for small businesses, this is a gigantic deal. The thought is that crazy taxes like this is part of what is keeping business out of Connecticut or driving it out. We're currently talking about $250 we could be putting to other use. I don't know if larger corps foot a larger bill or not but it's the small businesses that employ most Americans, believe it or not. That Denise Nappier rocks, by the way, in case you didn't already know it. She is moving and grooving with the Connecticut state budget and making strides. Hate to lose her but Barack and Hillary ought to take notice.

And speaking of, I am no poly sci fan so my knowledge is limited about the whys and wherefores of our questionable system. So it was nice to see this explanation of superdelegates on ABC News recently.

Oh, those super delegates! Now you can see there truly is power in the single vote. Watch and learn.
