Arrogant thieving fuck !
Head on a pike
The mask comes off!
Makes me want to puke.
lol, great pic Suzie! You know what they say about little dogs having a syndrome where they can't help themselves but to yip, yap and attack all bigger dogs or predators. Me thinks that Bloomberg must suffer with the same kind of syndrome. It's either that or the little weenie (and not the dog) syndrome... if you know what I mean? ;)
Mayor Michael Bloomberg and organizers of New York City Marathon cancelled the race Friday amid growing concerns that holding the event would divert resources from cleanup efforts in the wake of superstorm Sandy.
Mr. Bloomberg had said as recently as early Friday afternoon that the marathon, scheduled to start Sunday morning, would go on and serve as a demonstration that the city was recovering from the storm and moving forward.
But other elected officials from around the city said holding it so soon after a major storm would be an insult to hard-hit residents still cleaning up and worried that it would get in the way of recovering from a storm that killed at least 41 people in New York City alone.
"We would not want a cloud to hang over the race or its participants, and so we have decided to cancel it," Mr. Bloomberg and the organizers said in a joint news release. "We cannot allow a controversy over an athletic event—even one as meaningful as this—to distract attention away from all the critically important work that is being done to recover from the storm and get our city back on track."
Marathon canceled, but generators and supplies still sit unused in park

What a run-around!
The city left more than a dozen generators desperately needed by cold and hungry New Yorkers who lost their homes to Hurricane Sandy still stranded in Central Park yesterday.
And that’s not all — stashed near the finish line of the canceled marathon were 20 heaters, tens of thousands of Mylar “space” blankets, jackets, 106 crates of apples and peanuts, at least 14 pallets of bottled water and 22 five-gallon jugs of water.
This while people who lost their homes in the Rockaways, Coney Island and Staten Island were freezing and going hungry.
Michael Murphy, of Staten Island, who had no power and no heat, said yesterday, “We needed 100 percent of the resources here.”
“If those generators were here, we maybe could have had some light for the cleanup effort,” he said. “Those generators would really have come in handy.’’
As always, things aren't as they seem.......
