New York say hello to walking

So NYC in its constant quest to be more like Philly they have decided to have a transit strike. Unfortunately they don't know how to do it right (they are closer to Connecticut, dont be suprised they are screwin up) and it has devolved into a nasty leagal battle with an dick of a mayor creating even more of a mess than there needs to be.

The result is that the transit union is being held in contempt of court and being charged 1 million dollars a day for striking. Good old fashioned American Strike busting. Nothing like trampling the rights of the American working class because what they are doing is inconvient to you.

New York, send me a self addresed stamped envelope and I will send you a dollar and a clue. Is it inconvient? I am sure. Are you losing hundreds of millions of dollars a day? I would not be suprised. Should you bully other people just because you are bigger than them? No.

It is funny I use the word bullies, this is the first word that came to mind when i was thinking of the tactics that Mayor Bloomberg was using and in a press conference today he said

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg lashed out at union leaders for "thuggishly" turning their backs on the city, vowing there would be no further contract negotiations until the strike ends.
"You can't break the law and use that as a negotiating tactic," he said at an afternoon news conference. "This is unconscionable," he added.


There is only one thug here Mr. Mayor and that is you. Oh and nice photo op walking across the bridge this morning. I wonder how long that will last untill you start traveling by motorcade or helicopter? My guess is that the strike will still be going on when you make that decision (so it probably did that on the way home today).

So New Yorkers, I am sorry, but simply because your Mayor is a dick, I think the city is getting what it deserves.

Damn straight! Mayor Mike should put a lid on it. Calling people thugs and selfish just makes him look like a petty asshole, which is what he is being.

FYI-it's illegal for government workers to strike because they're considered a vital government service. Instead they have other ways of negotiating contracts. So really, they should be jailed. I can't say I feel that sorry for them.
