    He's a conductor, whatever that is. Doesn't sound more important than a teacher. Not jealous at all. Just feel sorry for tax payers who have to cover wages like that.

    Here, I found the video of him tearing pages from the Quran.
    I don't know about anyone else but this video makes me angry. Where are his rights? What did he do that was so awful that he was escorted away by the police? We have to put up with people burning flags and any number of dispicable things and just say oh well, they have a right. Then this guy, gets taken away for calmly ripping pages from a book? Ridiculous. The world's upside down with political correctness.

    i edited my post. why would you bitch a bout a person's salary when you don't know what his job entails? seems to me that's part of the disease of paying way too attention to right wing talkers. think a little bit first.

    I didn't want to get into a spitting match about how public workers are bankrupting the country. This is a thread about a man done wrong.
    I wish I hadn't noticed that he is probably way over paid. That's not his fault, but since I noticed and you won't leave it be....

    Derek Fenton, who sparked a national firestorm and condemnation from Gov. Chris Christie during his protest on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, will be reassigned to his $86,110-a-year job and get $25,000 for pain and suffering. The settlement, dated today, also says he will get back pay equal to $331.20 for every day since his firing.

    He shouldn't have been fired. But he's hardly a "good guy."
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    I want everyone to get stinkin' rich and not have it all taken away in taxes. If the Public Transit wasn't "public" but private I'd have no problem. I wouldn't have a problem with a million dollar salary for a conductor or a janitor. However, these are not private employees, but employees being paid by tax payers from both sectors.
