Heads Up NYC Freepers-- City Council To Vote on Antiwar Resolution TOMORROW
New York City Council ^ | 3/11/03 | Some clueless radicals with delusions of grandeur

Posted on 03/11/2003 2:41:21 AM PST by hellinahandcart

This is the second time they will have tried to pass this in the past month---with zero input from the public, I might add.

The first time they tried to bring it to a vote, certain hard-left elements in the council objected because they didn't think the resolution was antiwar enough, and the few conservatives on the council would not have voted for it under any circumstances. So Gifford Miller cancelled the vote. Now it's on the calendar again for Wednesday, and it looks like they are aiming for a resolution so "reasonable" that they think no one could possibly object to it.They really want this thing to pass. I am personally distressed to see that the number of sponsors to this abomination has at least doubled since their last meeting in February.

Well, they can soften the language and the tone all they want, it's still an "antiwar" resolution. Under "meeting Details" on the NY City Council website, here is what you'll find:

Res 0549-2002
Oppose the Congressional Resolution allowing President George W. Bush to unilaterally declare war against Iraq. Proposed Res. No. 549-A

And here is what they propose to vote on tomorrow (bold emphasis mine):

*******

Wednesday, March 12, 2003

* Addition

Committee(s) on Cultural Affairs, Libraries & International Intergroup Relations
Time: 11:00 AM
Location: Committee Room - City Hall

Chairperson(s): Jose Serrano

Proposed Res. No. 549-A -

By Council Members Perkins, Baez, Barron, Boyland, Brewer, Clarke, Davis, DeBlasio, Dilan, Espada, Gerson, Gioia, Gonzalez, Jackson, Koppell, Liu, Lopez, Martinez, the Speaker (Council Member Miller), Monserrate, Quinn, Reed, Reyna, Sanders, Seabrook, Serrano, Stewart, Vann and Yassky -

Resolution -

calling on the government of the United States to make all efforts to work through the United Nations Security Council in a manner that would reaffirm our nations commitment to the rule of law and the primacy of human rights in our international relationships, and to take all appropriate steps toward securing the participation of other nations and international bodies in the effort to ensure that Iraq does not possess biological, chemical or nuclear weapons and toward promoting human rights for all the people of Iraq; and further calling on the government of the United States to work through the United Nations Security Council and with other nations to ensure the unimpeded access of United Nations weapons inspectors to all areas of and facilities in Iraq and to ensure that the inspectors be given a full and fair opportunity to conduct their efforts in accordance with United Nations Security Council resolutions; and further calling upon the Council of the City of New York to oppose a pre-emptive military attack on Iraq unless it is demonstrated that Iraq poses a real and imminent threat to the security and safety of the United States or its allies or unless other options for achieving compliance with United Nations resolutions calling for the elimination of weapons of mass destruction and the means for their development have failed.

*******

Do we pay these nitwits to spend their time opposing CONGRESSIONAL RESOLUTIONS, or to concern themselves with New York City matters? Have these morons no clue as to how this is going to look to the rest of the country (and we owe the rest of the country. Big-time.) Are we really supposed to enjoy the prospect of both the UN and the NY City Council going on record AGAINST Bush this week?

Pick apart the leftist buzzwords and phrases at your leisure, but these folks have got to hear from us TODAY.

You have all been pinged because, to the best of my knowledge, you all live in New York City and have a City Councilweasel who needs a little feedback from their constituents. Please give your weasel and Gifford Miller a call today.

For those who hate being pinged, I apologize in advance. But look on the bright side. You don't even have to ask to be removed from my ping list, because I don't keep one. This is a one-shot deal.

If I pinged anyone who does not in fact live in the city, perhaps you have friends or relatives here who might be interested. Please forward this thread to them.

For those who live in the city and were not pinged, well...I hope you see this!

And, while the City Council doesn't have to listen to non-residents, my personal belief is that anyone who lives elsewhere but works in the city, OR...anyone in the entire United States who donated money, time, or simply their sympathy and good wishes to NYC after 9/11, has a perfect right to pick up up the phone and dial the Speaker, Gifford Miller.

If any of you are so inclined, please do it today.

Over 100 cities have passed these stupid antiwar resolutions. If the ANSWER/United for Peace and Justice/MoveOn/"Not In Our Name" crowd actually succeed in adding New York City to that list, then they've really bagged the big elephant, haven't they?

PLEASE make some noise about this.

Maybe there are people on the NYC City Council who think that New York still has too many skyscrapers. That's the only reason I can see that they would vote for it. If I were a New Yorker, I would call for a an immediate recall election of any council member who votes yes for the resolution.

The city council have their priorities so out of whack that they DO believe this is something they should be spending their time on.

And while I miss Rudy too, I don't think either mayor can really stop the council from getting together and embarassing the city and the nation.

For those of you who have been following the stellar antics of one of New York's brightest new political lights, Charles "I'd like to slap a white person, just for my mental health" Barron---the man who brought Robert Mugabe to New York last fall to address the City Council, and who addresses crowds at antiwar rallies---YES, he's one of the sponsors of the resolution.

And if I had to guess which weasel orignally generated this scheme, Barron would be my prime suspect.

I seem to recall that Her Heinous voted FOR the Congressional Resolution. I wonder if the city council realizes the irony of their voting to oppose HER position.

LOL.

Seriously, this infuriates me. I can just hear them now, at the "Not in Our Name" rally this weekend---"Even New York City, which bore the brunt of the tragic events of 9/11-- even NEW YORK CITY says 'No!' to this unjust, illegal, and racist war! Free Mumia!"

i think that the country would have been even more upset if the terrorists on 9/11 had attacked america instead of new york city.

It will pass with or without Bloomb!tch's help; I don't think the mayor can veto this sort of thing.

But what the heck, I'll try to find that totalitarian nancy-boy's phone number too.

to oppose a pre-emptive military attack on Iraq unless it is demonstrated that Iraq poses a real and imminent threat to the security and safety of the United States or its allies

Ok. Israel is our ally. Their security is threatened. End of story.

"If the ANSWER/United for Peace and Justice/MoveOn/"Not In Our Name" crowd actually succeed in adding New York City to that list, then they've really bagged the big elephant, haven't they?"

Actually, I'm more inclined to attribute this to a bunch of BIG JackA$$es!!

I thought I heard that the resolution will be taken up at their meeting on 3/24. Ironically enough, the day after the Rally for America to be held at the Innsbrook Pavillion (Glenn Beck is supposed to be there).

Feel free to call the Mayor and tell him what you think.
His number is 804-646-7977.

"I definitely believe there is a time for war, but I don't believe we have necessarily gotten to that point," the mayor said.

Times Distort lie, I heard McCollum on the radio this morning, no way he could pronounce "definitely" or "necessarily". Two sylables max. and forget anything w/ the letter "f".

I hope you do. What a maroon that guy is!

He thinks that if there is no war, that there'll be more federal money for education. The city of Richmond already spends more per kid than any other jurisdiction in Virginia and has the worst student performance of any school district. More federal money ain't gonna help that problem. I think Rudy needs to stick to his knitting and keep his nose out of international diplomacy.

"Mayor asking for vote on Iraq" BY JEREMY REDMON
TIMES-DISPATCH STAFF WRITER Mar 11, 2003

"Richmond Mayor Rudolph C. McCollum Jr. says President Bush has not made a convincing case for a war in Iraq. He is asking the City Council to take a stand on the issue. "I definitely believe there is a time for war, but I don't believe we have necessarily gotten to that point," the mayor said.

IMHO, Mr. McCollum, you are Without a CLUE regarding Foreign Policy!! Go back to sleep, DOLT!!

"McCollum introduced a resolution last night that says such a war may threaten the stability of the Middle East and likely increase al-Qaida terrorist threats to the United States. "Most cities and states are suffering fiscal crises where programs that benefit working people and the poor are being threatened by severe budget cuts," the resolution says, "and it has been estimated that a war in Iraq would likely cost the U.S. government over $100 billion, an amount that could go a long way to meeting our health and education needs."

SHADDUP, you MORON!!

"McCollum said Bush has not presented proof Iraq poses an imminent threat to America's security. He wants the president to report to Richmonders with an estimate for the cost of waging such a war and then rebuilding Iraq. Additionally, the mayor wants to know where America will get the money. He also poses these questions: What is the U.S. plan for stabilizing Iraq in the wake of a war? And what will the United States do to protect its soldiers and allies as well as Iraqi civilians?"

Rudy McCullom is a MORON and I will tell him so to his face!! What a STOOOOOPID IGNORANT JackA$$, just like Timmie "TheUkropsButtBoy" Kaine...ridiculously STOOOOPID...dangerously STOOOOPID!!!

"McCollum said he believes the United States should get support from the United Nations Security Council before attacking Iraq. The mayor's resolution comes as the United States and Britain face the threat of a veto from France, which has declared its opposition to any resolution that would lead to war. The mayor plans to call for a vote on his resolution during the City Council's March 24 meeting."

I'll be there, Mayor McCollum...be prepared fer some PrivateCitizenOutrage!!

I usedta work fer the City of Richmond and McCollum's a PI$$ant...just ask Charles Peters...LOL!!

"If it passes, the city would send the resolution to Virginia's two U.S. senators and all of its House representatives as well as to Bush. The mayor expressed concern the country could go to war before the council votes on the resolution. ...In Virginia, the Charlottesville City Council voted 4-1 on Feb. 3, passing a resolution against a unilateral war with Iraq "unless it is demonstrated that Iraq poses a real and imminent threat to the security and safety of the United States."

C'Ville's run by a bunch of Socialist DORKS, DWEEBS, and Ne'er-Do-Wells...HOO cares?!

"During a break between meetings last night, Richmond City Council members informally debated the mayor's proposed resolution. Some clearly oppose the resolution, while others favor it. "Our nation is under attack. We cannot second-guess the motives of our national leaders," Councilman Bill Johnson, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Vietnam era, said during an interview last night. Johnson plans to abstain or vote against the resolution. "If there is to be a call against the war, it should come from the citizens of Richmond, not the government of Richmond," he said. Councilman G. Manoli Loupassi is also critical of the mayor's idea. "We should spend our time discussing things within our control and expertise, such as the tax rate, and not waste our time with things beyond our control," he said."

Thank you fer yer sensibilities, Council-Persons Manoli and Johnson!!

"Vice Mayor Delores L. McQuinn and Councilwoman Gwen C. Hedgepeth say they will support the mayor's resolution."

'Nuff said...are there two bigger MORONS on the planet than these two DemonRAT-DOLTS?! Doubt it!!

"Council member Bill Pantele said he is undecided about the issue. Councilwoman J.M. "Jackie" Jackson declined to comment, saying she had not yet read the resolution. Council members Sa'ad El-Amin and Joseph E. Brooks were absent last night."

Sa'ad El-Amin is ON TRIAL fer Tax Evasion...too bad the Voters in his district vote too STOOOOPID to recognize that criminals shouldn't be elected!!

I just called the office of my Kew Garden's council woman Melinda Katz and I asked her intern how she was voting. The kid told me she is voting against US action in Iraq. This made my blood boil. I told the kid that Mz. Katz will not be getting my vote next time - not that I would vote for her anyway - she is a Democrat.

My parents fled communist repression in Cuba - this is my nation - I am not going to let some Left wing baby boomer vote against freedom however stupid and weak the council's vote is.

Well, my idiot council critter, Alan Gerson, will be voting for it according to the woman who answered the phone. Doesn't seem to see anything sickening about the councilman whose district includes the gaping 16-acre hole in the ground voting for this embarrassment. She seemed kind of outraged and/or confused that I was connecting the two.

But, on the optimistic side, there is a group of REAL Republicans in this city who are trying to take back the party and are focusing on the city council elections this year. www.urban-republican.com
