These garbage men really stink.

Selfish Sanitation Department bosses from the snow-slammed outer boroughs ordered their drivers to snarl the blizzard cleanup to protest budget cuts -- a disastrous move that turned streets into a minefield for emergency-services vehicles, The Post has learned.

He has bought his three elections and overturned term limits because “we need him”. Yeah, like we need smallpox!

Why are we calling on Congress to fix a state and local issue? Not every state has this problem.

break

From the Glodsmith article:

Back in 1996, a similar monster storm struck our city. It dumped 20 inches, closed airports, and left drifts 20-feet high.

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani not only declared a snow emergency and ordered all nonessential vehicles off the road, he took 3,300 city buses out of service so they wouldn't block sanitation trucks and rescue vehicles.

Giuliani also asked then-Gov. George Pataki for help. Pataki dispatched 400 national guardsmen with 100 Humvees that were used as ambulances to transport medical supplies and health workers.

I don't want him for president but I sure wouldn't mind Rudy as mayor if I were in a big city.

...’slowing down’... is all any union is good for.

Just retired, was a union guy in 5 different ones and they were all the same. ‘Slow down you’re working too fast’.

Thanks for ruining our wonderful country union dupes!

Just a couple of days ago, Mayor Napoleon was scolding us that it was just an “inconvenience” and that we should just shut up and go to a Broadway show.

Baghdad Bob’s got nothing on this guy.

Anyone know if private citizens could file a class action suit against any union that participated in a slowdown?

Good question.

Mark Steyn is talking about this story RIGHT NOW — filling in for Rush, on the Rush Limbaugh show.

He is been ripping into nanny Bloomberg for at least 2 days now.

Unions... in the private sector (and even moreso in the Public Sector) or now functionally no more than organized-crime syndicates, extorting money from taxpayers, and funneling it to themselves and favored politicians.

That pretty much says it all. Spot on!

I drove from LaGuardia into Manhattan and up the Henry Husdon Parkway to the George Washington Bridge yesterday.

If roads in Manhattan were as bad as I saw, I can’t imagine what it must be like in the other boroughs.
