Mike Bloomberg and the white disconnect...

Bloomberg keeps saying those striking are breaking the law, well mister bloomberg, some times the law must be broken. Rosa Parks broke the law, and at one point the law said that black people were property. Using the "they're breaking the law" argument just doesn't fly, being a billionaire seems to have made you forget that.

Pataki give it a rest!

Both George Pataki and Michael Bloomberg went to the same school of political melodrama. Both men are treating the TWU like criminals, technically they are, and refuse to discuss the situation as long as they are on strike...

Ok, hold up... when was the last transit strike? 1980. 25 years ago. I could understand treating these blue collar workers like criminals if they went on strike every year... but 25 years is enough time to give them some leeway.

Put the pressure on the MTA, George.

Hey Mike! Stop being such a corporate tool!

I think it says a lot about Fernando Ferrer that people voted for Mike Bloomberg for reelection of NYC. That said, Bloomberg is a prick. His attitude towards the TWU "illegal strike" is just appalling, Bloomberg seems to have forgotten what it was to not be a corporate thug. Bloomberg's tactic is to lay all the blame on the workers, and not the MTA (Metropolitan Thugs Association).

The MTA's history is less then honest (hidden money) and yet Bloomberg is not threatening them, or pushing for a complete accounting of their business practices, instead he goes on tv and verbally bullies the TWU.

I voted for Bloomberg, I knew what I was getting into, I think that speaks more to Ferrer then anything else.

Bloomberg its time to get behind the workers, the MTA has no reason to have your loyalty or backing.

Metropolitan Thugs Association

Strike looms in NYC, the group of thugs called the MTA (going your way, just not when you want to) are going to allow the first strike since the 80s to occur, the same MTA that claimed there wasn't enough money so they had to raise fares, then it turns out they had cooked the books but still raised fares, then turned out they had a multi-billion dollar surplus, so instead of giving the employees a fair contract they decided to give a pathetic token gift of 10 extra days on a limited amount of metro cards that you had to pay for in cash at booths... uh what?

I don't want a strike but the MTA is a bunch of thugs, they need to deal, so that I can take the bus, not that the bush shows up in time for me to take it anyways.

As a child would speak...

How is it bush sounds more and more like a spoiled child when talking to the country? I am listening to him, and the annoyance in his voice is so prevalent.

On a side note, he meant to say Osama Bin Laden and instead said Saddam... guess they trained him too well.

mister president you shouldn't blame the press for leaks, you should blame yourself. If leaks occur it is because people feel that what you are doing is ineffective.

Stop acting like a spoiled brat and more like someone who is president of the united states.
