Sounds like the rectal thermometer should have been inserted with prejudice.
People do not realize that big government does far more to harm, then it can ever can do to help. This is a prime example. The next time you are standing in a line that you are required to stand in to acquire some government license or pay some fine, just ask yourself, is this government doing more to help its citizens or doing more to harm its citizens ?
That HAD to feel really, really good.
What a bunch of statist knuckleheads. I'll bet these east coast Barney Fifes wouldn't have been so quick to quote regulations if they had lost everything and been left hanging by the government. In fact, I'm thinking that bowl of chili would have looked awfully good to them.
no surprise here; and it wouldn’t have surprised me if Bloomberg himself had personally sent those particular inspectors
Guys like Eustace, and many of us here are the backbone of America. The need is recognized and we don’t ask what absurd governmental hoops do I need to jump through, we step up and get it done. Screw Bloomberg, screw nanny-state big government mentalities on both sides of the aisle. These self-important bureaucrats can all rot in hell.
“I’ll stop serving when you pry the soup ladle from my cold, dead hands...”
Bureaucrat Fascists that need a dose of democratization. Anything bad that happens to bureaucrats like that? There is always jury nullification...
I commend the fire fighters and everyone else pitching in to help but I have to ask. What did the people in NYC think they were asking for as they continued to re-elect nanny bloomberg and all the rest of the ‘rat bastard statists who want to run every aspect of everyone else’s lives? This is what you folks asked for.
Everyone should read the outraged and hilarious comments that follow the Hamill piece. Finally - finally - NYers are seeing what this tinpot mayor is about.
Somebody fetch a rope....
The unions are deterring electricans, plumbers and carpenters from out of state and the government is deterring volunteers to help the people stuck in this disaster area. Unions are driving up the cost of repairs and slowing down recovery.
It’s a limo-liberal Utopia.
I’m really glad volunteers are helping out up there because fema would have never showed up. There are a lot of old people who are suffering and dying. The city is too busy harassing volunteers to find places to relocate the poor and weak and to help them apply to FEMA for temporary housing aid while their places get repaired. It is the responsibility of the city help people understand FEMA and to help clueless and poor people learn to locate places to go. NYC is putting New Orleans to shame in the stupid and careless department.
Everyone works so hard after a disaster, except liberal government workers and union bosses.
Sadists with the monopoly power of government doing what sadists always do — cruelly abusing people.
Proof that even a billionaire can be a crack-pot! But then, we already knew that.
Brooklynites, Brezzy Pointers, and Rockawayans, you disappoint me .......Back in the day these clowns would have been grabbed from behind , blindfolded and tied to the nearest light pole.
An announcement would have been made, that they would be turned over only to Blombers himself,then they would have tied his a$$ up, and enjoyed dinner...
