De Blasio ‘getting back at us’ by not plowing: UES residents
nypost.com ^ | january 21, 2014 | Jennifer Gould Keil and Frank Rosario

Posted on 01/21/2014 3:56:43 PM PST by lowbridge

It really is a tale of two cities — this time with the tony Upper East Side getting the shaft!

Huge swaths of the UES had been not been plowed by early Tuesday evening, according to the city’s own map of snow-plower activity.

“He is trying to get us back. He is very divisive and political,” said writer and life-long Upper East Side mom Molly Jong Fast of Mayor de Blasio.

“By not plowing the Upper East Side, he is saying, ‘I’m not one of them.’ But we have everyone in this area on the Upper East Side. We have rich people, middle class people, and housing projects. We have it all.”

Maybe it’s just because Hannity lives on the UES.

If DeBlasio was a Republican, reporters would find the one elderly person who died of a stroke when the ambulances were delayed by unplowed streets, and call DeBlasio a murderer.

New York is really doing its darndest to drive out its taxpaying citizens. It’s unfortunate, because too many of them vote for this crud and then are surprised when they get it and its not some academic game where they get to speechify and play radical like they’re still in college, but it doesn’t really affect them. Cuomo and Blasio are going to play for real, and that will drive these wanna-be radicals into other states for them to start their same old crud, because they never connect the dots or at least won’t ever admit that this is what their politics lead to when someone really means it for a change.

Wouldn’t surprise me in the least. I didn’t see the particular streets, but the Upper East Side has a few mega-rich streets and then the rest ranges from glass boxes from the 70s and 80s now lived in by young recent-grad upwardly mobile roommates working downtown, to miscellaneous modest buildings with working class Hispanics and struggling knowledge workers. So de Blasio’s zeal to punish may not work out well for him.

““DeBlasio is trying to hurt the more wealthy people by ignoring us but there’s no logic to that,” Cisse said.”

Left wing elitists are morons. They think that the Marxist crocodile won’t eat them. You leftist idiots got what you wanted - a commie radical. Deal with it. Maybe you can hire right wing death squads to create political balance. I hear there’s contras in Nicaragua looking for work. Dial 911-OPENBORDERS.

If you missed the SciFi episode of either “Night Gallery” or a similar show (perhaps “Tales from the Dark Side),in the 80’s or 90’s., then you don’t remember the story “RED SNOW”.

Well now you do!

RED MAYOR!
RED SNOW!
RED SNOW JOB!

Communist payback is a bitch and you are now DeBlasio’s “BITCH”.

He will appoint neighborhood organizers (aka political commissars) who will force all of the residents out to shovel the streets, otherwise their property will be declared public domain and seized by the people’s republic of NYC government.

Hannity is leaving New York for either Florida or Texas.

Had enough of communists and RINO aholes like Bloomturd.

His show’s new title “Escape from New York”.

For those on the Left Coast, it is “Escape from LA” (and SF and Oakland, etc).

Calling Kurt Russell. We have a followup sequel to Escape from NY. This time you rescue Sean Hannity and a surviving group of conservatives so that they can establish a resistance movement in the South.

Probably few to none. But only a tiny percentage of New Yorkers voted anyway, and this group could certainly not have outvoted those who were driven to the polls in the union or church buses.

This is a made-up story. I have spent the past few hours in lower manhattan and brooklyn, and nothing seems out of the ordinary compared to previous storms. I haven’t been up to the UES, but I looked at the snow map (the one cited in the article), and there does not appear to be any difference between the UES and anywhere else in the city.

Bloomberg was notorious for having the area around his house (on the UES) plowed faster than anywhere else — the people who are complaining today are probably just used to that favorable treatment, and are complaining now that they’re not getting it.

This is why conservatives must move to red states and starve the socialists in the blue states.

Sanitation Comm.: Map Showing No Plowing On UES Was Due To Bad GPS On Salt Truck

January 21, 2014

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York City Sanitation Commissioner John Doherty said a map that showed streets going unplowed on the Upper East Side was due to a faulty GPS system on a salt spreader.

You guys on the UES get to enjoy the beauty a bit longer! Why is everyone so negative about snow? He’s doing you a favor. UWS snowplows have created huge snowbanks that make it make it an expedition to cross the street. Enjoying it all anyway. Rejoice in the Lord always.

Maybe DeB will follow up with an announcement that due to budget restraints the City can no longer waste police manhours on safe neighborhoods such as the UES where there has been very little crime.

I fear he is driving out its tax-paying and liberal voting citizens and that they are moving to my state. When they get here they will note how low the taxes are and how much nicer people are to each other then Mr. will turn to Mrs. and say,"You know, Honey, this place is almost perfect! It just needs some more services," and their voting pattern will not change as they fashion a new socialist hellhole from which they or their children will flee.

Vote commie - get commied!

PS The Whaaambulance doesn’t make Neu Yuk Sh*ty calls - the increases in the cost of ammo for the tail gunner made it financially prohibitive.
