    Default NYC Mayor SCUMBAG!!

    If anyone had any doubts what a waste of human existance Mike Bloombag is...this should remove all doubt!

    This is the same man who said 9-11 afflicted firemen and police officers were looking for a "Free Lunch" in regards to having them and their familes taken care of if they should fall ill with 1 or more of the umpteen diseases many are expected to endure in the following years.

    There is a special place in hell for this animal.


    FIRE WIDOW RIPS MIKE'S 'CRUEL' TIP
    By CATHY BURKE
    NEW YORK POST

    January 14, 2007 -- At a ceremony marking the first anniversary of the Black Sunday tragedies, in which three firemen lost their lives in two separate blazes, Mayor Bloomberg callously admonished the widow of one of the fallen heroes to "move on," New York magazine reports.

    Jeanette Meyran, who became an advocate for safety ropes for firefighters after the Jan. 23, 2005, Bronx blaze that killed two firemen, including her husband, Curt, bitterly recalls the mayor's brusque advice.

    "Jeanette, you have to stop this crusade," the mayor is quoted saying in the magazine, due out tomorrow. "It's been a year. You have to move on. Curt would not want his widow to live this way."

    "I appreciate your concern," Meyran replied. "But how does that help me and my children?"

    Bloomberg looked away and said, "Take care of this woman," before leaving.

    "There's a protocol for the FDNY widow," the mother of three said. "You're in shock, then you go away. I'm not following that protocol."

    It's two weeks and a day into 2007 and Bloomturd already has a solid lock on the "mutt of the year" award!

    That says tons right there.

    I can't imagine the guys in the three members' house have forgotten. Is your "Mayor" ready to tell all of them to move on?

    Perhaps it was taken out of context? It is the media after all. Let's not be judgemental until the full article comes out. Oh wait, it's the fire service. We believe everything we read/hear/see.

    Wow, i didn't think Bloomberg can stoop this low. He is a *****, and he needs to shut is big-fat millionaire mouth up. He doesn't know how it is to lose a love one, in that kind of situation.
    Bloomberg:
    -Closes Firehouses
    -FDNY paycuts
    -Bashes a widow, whose Husband passed away, doing a job to save lives

    Bloomberg's comments demonstrates indifference to the notion that there are people out there who want to advocate the safety of firefighters. It isn't costing Bloomberg any of HIS millions and to date, what has it cost the taxpayers of NYC? Pennies?
    How anyone could trivialize the efforts of this woman who honors her husband's memory and the memory of other fallen firefighters through her advocacy is disturbing.
    He isn't a mutt; he is the excrement that FLOWS from a mutt.

    Thumbs down

    And I thought our Mayor sucked b/c of hampering us building a new house. This guy makes our Mayor look like an angel. I can imagine someone having the gall to say that to a widow of a falled brother. As said before, there's a special place in hell for this looser!!!

    First off God bless the widows and the families. Stay strong and do not give up.

    Can you impeach a mayor?


    Why does he show up to promotions, graduations, medal days, tributes like for Captain T.H. (RIP), but his actions are non-supportive of the department?

    He closed a few Firehouses, and then had the nerve to tell opened Firehouses to increase there response time. He also did paycuts to the FDNY and NYPD, it sparked a protest a few years ago.
    He thinks he can get by, because he donates some of his money to the city, and doesn't recieve any kind of pay for his job, because he is already a millionaire, if not, billionaire.

    I think he asked the active firehouses to DECREASE their response times I'm not FDNY so I didn't see the order.

    Bloomturd wants faster response times. All this while hanging any chaffeur who gets in an accident out to dry and reducing staffing on the initial assignment due to closed houses. Deputy Chief Vincent Dunn did a study years ago that showed you need two fully staffed engines to properly stretch a 2-1/2 inch line. Bloomturd doesn't give a s**t about our brothers in NYC. God Bless the FDNY (not Magoo).

    That's what I'm wondering. He shows up to FD services to have his face seen, then turns on those same people. That's total disrespect and a slap on the face to firefighters.

    God bless Jeanette Meyran. She must be a strong woman.

    Diane, I would agree about the media angle if we were talking about anyone else, but Bloomburg is a true mutt with no honor and a history of making similar callous statements. His record shows he is no friend of the fire department.

    Angry How about fair wages for Emergency Responders?

    Another character reference for this MUTT of a mayor

    Extra billion for city - what about cops?


    by Michael Daly
    NY Daily News
    Originally published on January 18, 2007

    Happy days!
    Economic boom time!

    More tourists than ever before!

    Unemployment at record lows!

    Property values still up, up, up!

    $1 billion in tax relief on the way!

    Crime down 20% over five years!

    A grateful city hiking starting salary for cops to over $52,000 with $5,000 signing bonus in the works!

    Oops! That last part about the cops was not in Mayor Bloomberg's State of the City address yesterday. That's the starting cop pay in Los Angeles. The starting pay in the booming New York remains $25,100, still $14,430 less than the starting pay for a city gardener.

    And forget about a signing bonus such as the $5,000 planned in L.A. or the $10,000 already offered in Dallas on top of a starting salary nearly double ours. You would figure the mayor could at least trim that $1 billion tax cut enough to offer our new cops a relatively modest sum upfront. That way, we might attract quality recruits who can ensure his prophecy becomes a reality.

    "How can you not feel that New York's future is bright with promise," he told the assemblage.

    The present boom began with safe streets and will continue only as long as the streets stay safe. Tourists are not going to flock to a place where they have to spend more time looking over their shoulders than at the sights. Businesses would be considerably less likely to open up and expand here if they had to worry about robberies, burglaries and muggings. Nobody is going to pay $2 million for a Brooklyn brownstone if the neighborhood reverts to a war zone.

    Virtually every property owner in the city has seen that property soar in value thanks to cops who are not paid enough even to rent in neighborhoods they brought back from the brink. No property owner should object to forsaking the whole tax cut to attract the best police recruits we can and maybe even reward the cops out there now.

    "Keeping our city safe, of course, begins with fighting crime - and no one does it better than the NYPD," the mayor said yesterday.

    His next words should have been, "And now that we've got $1 billion to spare we are going to make sure they are better paid!" He instead spoke of the NYPD's efforts to rid the city of illegal guns, noting firearms arrests were up 13%.

    "But we did more than simply make arrests," he then said.

    He went on to say the NYPD also expanded its investigative efforts. But the "simply" from the previous sentence stuck in the brain along with the "we."

    Had he himself ever actually taken a loaded gun off somebody, Bloomberg would not likely have chosen that word "simply." He might just as well have said the subway hero he had up on the stage "simply" threw himself atop a stranger before an onrushing train.

    Nobody should suggest the mayor is not acutely aware of the cops who have lost their lives. He proceeded to speak of them with true feeling.

    Those he mentioned included Detectives Rodney (Jay) Andrews and James Nemorin, whose killer happened to be the subject of a death penalty hearing just on the other side of Tillary St. in Brooklyn from the auditorium where he spoke.

    But on hearing that "simply," you had to wonder if the mayor is fully aware of the mortal danger cops face routinely day after day in the effort to keep our city safer and thereby booming.

    Just an imagined gun apparently led to the infamous 50 shots in Queens. Picture what might transpire if the quality of the average cop takes a dive and the streets become ever more dangerous.

    In other parts of his speech, the mayor exhibited innovative, truly brilliant problem solving. A mayor who can be that municipally creative should be able to devise a way to pay the cops simply what they deserve.

    Our cops have made New York the safest big city in America and we pay them less than they could earn in some suburban backwater. We do not even match the starting salary and signing bonus of some cowboy town in Texas.

    Yee-hah!

    The FDNY is in the same boat. Last I knew, they were still without a contract.

    Bloomberg sucks, this city makes millions per a day. I think, during the MTA strike, the city buisness lost around 5-6 Billion Dollars in the Manhattan Area. Now imagine the Tax, the City Gets from those buisness alone. The City Owns all the property, which it gets paid for. The people pay taxes, wouldn't this add up to alot of money for funding. Wait, the City is now building Two baeball stadiums, donating $600million ( I think) for the building of the stadiums for the Mets and Yanks. I think, that money could've gone to people like....FF, or Cops. This city is a major Joke, and the Mayor only...I repeat ONLY...tries to seem like the good guy, when he is up for re-election.
    Remember, the last time he was up for re-election, he started talking about raising the pay for firefighters and cops, and after he was elected, went back to the same old bloomberg. Life is so bloom......

    First off he's a BILLIONAIRE not a Millionaire, not that it matters.

    I believe union signed off on the pay scale, probies got less but it allowed the experienced guys to get more $, however the whole pay scale still sucks, especialy for the cost of living in NY.

    One of the biggest reasons they continue to get away with paying poverty pay for firefighters is they aren't laking applicants. Think about it if you were a Billionaire business owner and had thousands of people lined up in the streets waiting to work for you would'nt you continue to save your money and pay them a wage that obviosly people are willing to except?

    Not that I agree with it, I dont I think just about every firefighter in the US is EXTREMLY under paid especially FDNY.
