Really stupid observation here...
Do you think the “ negative” stigma around the state (not just in here) is related to state pride?

When I was in South Carolina people have the state stickers in their cars and they seem to have pride living there. How many CT stickers do you see on cars? Even Mass cars I see all the time have state stickers. Just a silly observation I was thinking about driving around today. I even have a South Carolina sticker on my truck but no CT one.

(Sticker from South Carolina is related to fishing because I fish down there a lot)



Side note: I over heard 3 older people (one clearly retired, one on her way and one about 50) all complaining about CT today at a cost cutters. It was actually funny to listen too because honesty some of what they were saying was so ridiculous is made no sense.

This forum does not reflect the majority of CT residents. Its the same 10 complainers here every day and it has driven away a lot of good posters.


I stay for LOL's - some of the stuff you complainers come up with is hilarious.
Youíre right. CT has incredible job growth, massive migration in, little to no poverty, rock bottom tax rates, is majorly in the black, is gaining millionaires and is overall very happy with their tax happy governor.

Hereís something a bit more scientific: About half of CT residents want to move to another state.

Again, unscientific but donít underestimate public opinion.

CT has one of the lowest poverty rates in the United States.


As people leave CT new people come in to replace them. If people are leaving who is buying all the houses they leave behind ? or is everyone who leaves CT a renter ?



There is no suburb in CT that has swathes of empty houses and burnt out buildings.


CT is expensive because its desirable. No amount of complaining here will ever change that.



I guess Virginia is better though.

Only 9 states had a net population loss last year. Connecticut was one of them.
