Freeze In The Dark Or…

So, let me get this straight.  There are people shivering in the dark in New Jersey. Some other people came up from Alabama to help turn on the lights, but they were turned away because they aren’t paying dues to the purple shirt club. Ah yes, protecting the people from the scourge of the non-unionized.  Why, they might work for sustainable market rates!  Oh the humanity!

(Oh look! Tam beat me to it.  I’m going to have to switch to energy drinks or something…)

Surely they have their priorities in order in New York.  While New Yorkers are shivering in the dark and bailing out their basements with the approved 16 oz cups, Bloomers is bringing in generators.  That’s good, right?

Or not. People gotta run, I guess.

Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

And I will give them limited capacity drinking cups and let them freeze in the dark.

  2. Oh holy {insert expletive of choice here. Heck, make it two…I’m feelin’ generous tonight.}!!!!! There’s a natural disaster going on, folks are without power, food, water, and some folks from down south are OFFERING to help, most likely on their own dime, and Noo Yawk TURNS THEM DOWN BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT UNION???? That’s about as inhumane as I think I’ve seen in a long time. Almost makes me embarrassed that they’re Americans, turning help away from fellow Americans. Heads most definitely need to roll on this one.
