I heard on FOX News that the union is going to be fined a million dollars for every day they're out. Yikes!

I guess since this is a caption thread, I'd use $$$$$$Zzzzzzzzzzzzz....

What would Reagan do?

I know! Give them 48 hours and fire them and impose a lifetime ban on rehiring.

I think the real question is: Aren't they entitled to a raise?

F*** em. I jogged 35 blocks from Penn today to my apartment. Good exercise. New Yorkers can adapt.

Everytime I see that a$$hole thug toussant on TV I feel like throwing the remote through the picture tube. I am all for roughing this out to teach these communist scumbags a lesson.

I turned the TV on this afternoon for the first time in I don't know how long (it's on occassionally for football, Animal Planet or the Travel Channel) and I'm listening to them on Fox going on about the strike.......

OK - I feel for the folks in NYC being inconvenienced by it, and now understand the financial ramifications that I didn't understand during the last strike.......but come on..........when did NYC get infested with so many whining crybabies?

Granted, the last strike was not smack dab in the middle of winter and the Christmas season........but NYers pretty much took it as a part of life - I know I did. I biked or walked and laughed a lot.

You're wrong. The big victim of this strike will be Bloomie. The union won't regret a thing.

The 1990s. They made the city uninhabitable to the likes of me. :-)

think about it

impatient freezing NYers waiting for hours in line to cram in to over crowded commuter trains, hours to go a few blocks in a car, hours to get into Penn Station, $50 a day extra costs for some to get into the city.

is it like Katrina or 9/11? No.

Is it a Metropolis sized pain in the ass? Yes.

>>>"Oxygen thieves at work"<<<

There ought to be a Law

(I think we have too many Laws, and that for every new Law passed 8 should be repealed and in 30 or 40 years we might get a handle on what is Lawful and what is not, Outlawing these folks from sucking Oxygen / Public Funds ever again would be a Good Law)

Didn't he just get re-elected bigtime?
What's he got to lose? The strike is pissing off millions of Nyers. I'll be in the city in March. They better be over this by then.

Actually, I dislike the straight, balding, backward baseball cap wearing, wear shorts all year round, throwing up his guts on Bleecker Street on a Wednesday night even more. And the women who love them.

The fruitcakes are ok in comparison. Well, the oldschool fruitcakes, anyway.

A leader needs to have some kind of consensus to lead. If the bottom falls out of Bloomie, he will oficially be a lame duck before he is sworn into his second 4-year term in office.

Good on you! They should be fired. I'd start with firing those easiest to replace, token booth workers, porters, etc. Every day a new set of workers would be fired.

As many problems as I have with Bloomy, part of me thinks he won't cave on this. He got re-elected with a huge margin, I think he thinks he's got the public on his side. And if this strike goes through Christmas, he will, for sure.

The taxpayers are going to get pretty sick of people who want to get rich driving that train. I actually heard some union guy (not Toussaint, a white guy, Mahoney? Something, sounded like an typical NY Irish type for sure) say he thought they should all make 80 grand a year: 'cause dat's wat it takes to live in Nooo Yawk.

And I lived in NYC my whole life, until I was 30 years old. But these folks are f.o.s. and I am just glad I am not there now.

Stinking commies, they should ALL be fired.

"...impose a lifetime ban on rehiring."

Yes. that IS the key. If they don't like it, they can lump it.

Problem is Reagan had military trained ATCs to call upon (my brother in law is one of them). Don't know what the NY folks would do for highly trained staff. See my prior post for more of my thoughts on this.

"FINE THEM!" "FIRE THEM!" "JAIL THEM" "F THE TWU!"
