    2. Taking completely unsubstantiated hearsay and reporting it as the undeniable truth is lying. People that lie are called liars.

    Might not put the snowplow operator in much-of-a-bind, but the guy supervising the snowplow operator might have to answer a few questions. Yes?

    The comments from the hufftards on that link are particularly delightful.

    I'll wait until I hear it from another source than the Post.

    Furthermor*e If I'm the mayor of a city and I know a snow storm is going to hit and I find out that 12% of the sanitation workers are calling in sick. There should have been a backup plan. Did Bloomberg not know this. A snow storm is going ot hit call you sanitation people make sure that they are ready.
    Hey if Chris Christie doesn't feel the need to show up for work, why should the sanitation workers. It just goes to prove that, when it comes down to it, America needs the people who actually do the work instead of the blowhards who only talk down to those who do the heavy lifting. Maybe if your willingnes*s to pay taxes was matched by your fake moral outrage against ACTUAL WORKERS then the problem would be resolved.

    You can think what you like there dude, But I grew up in Lansing MI, Worked for a Pepsi bottler in Maryland that was Unionized, (I had no choice to join or not), and have seen the utter destruction, and self involved crap unions, and their members inflict on society. Take a stroll through Flint MI, Detroit MI, Hell, even through Dundalk MD, with what the Steel workers unions did to Beth Steel. Unions are short sighted thugs that couldn't care less about the communities they destroy.

    I moved out of MI as fast as I could in my 20s because I saw the future, and I was right.

    blah blah blah...you lived in michigan, thats great j, so did i....how many meetings did you attend when you were union? how involved did you get in your union....i bet you never got involved at all, because if you had been involved, you would know that unions are not the monsters you make them out to be, that they arent all powerful when it comes to getting a contract, that the reps don't just walk up to management, and tell them how its going to be....good god, please don't speak about things you have no understanding of, or that you choose to be willfully ignorant of. it is really unbecoming.
