    Yes, I'm sure there was a lot of state travel to Indiana for CT government employees.

    OMFG on CT's religious freedom law. OMFG. I should laugh at his ignorance, but I have a lot of friends who still live in CT and I feel sorry for them now.

    Malloy needs to get back to his efforts to capitalize on Sandy Hook and leave the lawmaking to the smart people.
    We are also getting another tax hike after the largest tax hike in state history when he took over. WEEEEEEEEeeee.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Yes, because people who experience righteous anger when losing their human rights are just as bad as people who experience defensive anger when called out for oppressing others' rights. Epic fail, CC.

    Also, yes, we have a version of the religious freedom laws from the 90s. HAhahaha.

    "Righteous" is subjective, and you just did precisely what I said. BOTH sides have legitimate positions on this issue. The problem is the application of those issues.

    The state should do its job and protect the private property rights of its citizens. It doesn't have to "sanction" anything by letting free people make choices about who they want to associate with and who they want to hold custom with.

    That story in your signature line. Did that news make it to the Netherlands?
    In the Netherlands judges go to a school for judges.

    You first need a university law degree and between 2 and 5 years of relevant legal work experience outside of the court system.

    You also need to have demands on the personal level like a good analytical mind, have insight in legal issues and has to be comfortable making decisions. Working under stress should have no consequences with regard to the quality of your work. You have to have excellent communicative qualities and you need to be able to make transparent and pure decisions. You also need to have decent social experience.

    Then you need to go through 11 weeks of interview processes, a process of 13 steps including the person officially filling out an application, then there is a review based on the application to review if all the demands were met, then the candidates are checked through the police and court records, then an analytical test, pre-interview, all your references are contacted and checked, a psychological assessment, 3 interviews with the selection committee, decision of the committee, first job interview with the court that is looking for new judges, intake interview where the length of your education/schooling will be decided with member of the court and representatives of the education institute (specifically deciding which study subjects need extra attention), an interview in which the specific working conditions are discussed and it ends with the education itself.

    The education process is very extensive and if you are interested you can read about it here https://ssr.nl/uploads/Pdf-documente...0programme.pdf

    After that someone will be appointed as a judge. That is at least how it goes in the Netherlands.

    I must have come in when you were leaving. I moved to Fairfield County in 1995. I moved back to Ohio in 2011. And not a moment too soon. To borrow a line from Samuel Clemens, if I owned Connecticut and I owned hell, I'd rent out Connecticut and live in hell.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.
