Mayor Kaiser Wilhelm II Did Not Plow The UES of NYC, but WHY?
Mononymous1/Wordpress ^ | 1/22/2014 | Mononymous1

Posted on 01/22/2014 12:55:46 PM PST by mononymous

The UES wasn’t the only area in Manhattan that wasn’t plowed; in fact, as of 4:00 p.m. yesterday, it is KNOWN that most of the area shown in red in the following map was NOT plowed – not even once:

http://project.wnyc.org/election2013/

The traffic on all major avenues in the red area was pretty much at standstill. Now, in fairness, I don’t know if all of the areas in green was plowed but someone ought to know.

If the UES wasn’t plowed when, for instance, the UWS was, it’d seem that Kaiser Wilhelm II wasn’t going after just the 1 percenters but everyone in blocks upon blocks of Manhattan where he LOST the vote. In the red area of the Manhattan map at the link, there are many hospitals, schools and so on.

Kaiser, you are nothing but a scumbag because either you did this deliberately or else you need to learn very quickly; however, you probably lack the ability to do so. I am sure the sanitation guys (yes, your union buddies) were only too happy to wait to get the avenues done overnight because of the overtime! Investigation, anyone? Naw, this is NYC…

The rich can just hire a private service to do it.

In most US cities not plowing the snow is a sure way to be thrown out of office.

If it’s not the union playing games, it’s the mayor.

Guessing that is sarcasm. That said, the unfortunate reality is that the sanitation tucks, which double as snow plows, rule the city. They are not gonna let an non-city-union vehicles on the streets.

Background for those fortunate enough to not live in NY City: there are basically two types of surface streets in NY: uptown/downtown, and cross-town. Uptown/DT tend to be broad multiple lane roads. Cross-town tends to be narrow single lane roads. The sanitation drivers learned long ago that one or two trucks blocking a couple of cross-town roads brings traffic in and entire neighborhood to a standstill. Anytime they aren't getting their way, they just block a few cross-town roads and the city's traffic comes to a near complete stop.

I suspect that heavy snows need to be scooped up and dumped in the river. A private firm would need too many permits to be able to operate if the City didn’t want them to.

Winter Storm Anus?

Is that what that little red and white thing is supposed to represent?

I've heard of the "Eye of the Storm."

But the Anus is a new one on me.

I grew up in the tony NY suburbs of Rockland County but left the area in 1977, partly because of the political culture there. Who wants to live in a society governed by secret connections and privileged access? Sheesh. Close the bridge to punish? Leave streets impassable because of household income? But tax evermore the achievers. Who needs it?

Most of the snow gets piled up on parked cars, where it seems to immediately turn to ice. To shovel out a parked car, you may well need a pick.

Some of the snow goes into the rivers, but a lot goes into "heated dumpers" that melt the snow into storm drains. As soon as you tried to bring the dumpsters in from a private party, I have no doubt that it would become a victim of a snow-plow accident within a couple of hours.

I agree. BUT, the mayor playing games results in a windfall for his union friends - just a small scale repayment for their support, you see.

I expect that they’ll leave town before it gets to this and we’ll see if the re-dsitributors can figure out why.

Who needs it is a good question. I think some people are just naturally inclined to want to stay in a place they are comfortable in; some prefer the suburbs, some cities. I believe at some point though, like Hannity, one has to weigh the circumstances and answer the question sincerely.

Actually, some did. But, according to the map I linked to, most people on the UES and some further south (not just the rich) did NOT vote for him and this may be the real reason for the payback.

The storm will be Ross Perot’s “giant sucking sound” as most folks leave and then the mayor will have no one left to tax but the middle clase and then no one at all until we get to Detroit. I hope I am wrong.

When will this be dubbed “Plowgate”? or must the mayor be republican?
