    Re: Sanitation Department's slow snow clean-up was a budget protest

    Lol and here MaggieD comes ever so predictably jamming words down our throats. Perhaps Maggie you could point out where I said this is untrue?

    I'll save you the time and let you know that you can't because I haven't even offered a position on the story, but merely pointed out that the OP and his cronies are lying by portraying this hearsay from unnamed sources as true.

    And now here you come lying yourself by deliberately misrepresenting my post so that you can claim that I'm "just as bad".

    Were you not thinking that I would catch your lie? Or were you just not thinking at all when you wrote that post? I'd give you the benefit of the doubt but I can't decide if it's worse to be a liar or an idiot.

    I am from the planet where you stand tall and be a man. In my employment history i did not hesitate to take on my employer several times and never once did it hiding behind the outhouse pretending it was not me.

    So, naturally, anyone who 'does' want to initially hide their identity for any reason, is a coward compared to you?

    My experience is that if you want to be taken seriously, you stand up and be counted. Eventually, you usually have to do so anyways if it gets anywhere. In addition, I, just like these workers, had union protection so their status as whistle blowers should be protected several different ways. And with the god-like Rupert Murdoch and his bastion of shining journalism on their side, who would dare try to retaliate against such righteousness?

    Like I said... because 'you' have no fear of anything, that attitude should apply to everyone... and if it doesn't, well, they must be lying or trying to hide some important fact, right?

    Not everyone is a shining bastion of bravery and power like you, Hay.

    BTW... seems like you've already decided they are not being honest in this situation... without even the benefit of an investigation. hmmmmmmmmmmmm, weren't you whining about that kind of attitude on the part of 'conservatives' in a couple other threads?

    I fully support any investigation if there is reasonable cause to go forth and have one. People here are constantly complaining about government spending and protecting the taxpayer. Lets do it here also. If people come forward with credible information and it bears out, have the investigation and let the chips fall where they may. The key there is people coming forward and being willing to do what is right.

    I do NOT think I am any sort of paragon of bravery. I simply do as I was raised to do. In this world you can only die once. Might as well do it standing up like a man. But in this case, these are supposedly union members with protections and due process plus you have whistle blower laws also. I was never much for anonymous letters or whisper campaigns behind somebodys back. It always struck me as not the right thing to be doing.

    Sources told The Post several neighborhoods were on the workers' hit list -- including Borough Park and Dyker Heights in Brooklyn and Middle Village in Queens -- because residents there have more money and their politicians carry big sticks.

    "It was more targeted than people actually think," said a labor source. "Borough Park was specifically targeted [because of] . . . its ability to sort of gin up the p.r. machine."

    The plan worked. Residents of those neighborhoods -- who, after three days, were still trying to dig out their cars -- are apoplectic.

    Sources said Sanitation bosses issued verbal directives during the clean-up to give priority to streets near the homes of agency heads and other city bigwigs. "This happens all the time," one Sanit worker said. "They make sure the bosses and politicians get taken care of."

    the damage is done---politically---probably mostly because it all rings so true

    happy new year, all

    more men without names or faces acting as "sources".

    I think this all rings so true to you because Paul Simon was right...... "a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest".

    btw - how did all those hundreds of miles of streets get plowed in the union workers were not plowing them properly?

    Re: Sanitation Department's slow snow clean-up was a budget protest

    I never understood the work slow down concept. Isn't the idea behind asking for a raise because you are an efficient employee that is worth the extra money? Seems by not doing your job well you'd be counter productive in both the job and the negotiation. What is the point in pissing of the people of NY? Don't you want them on your side?
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
