I grew up in Manhattan the heart of the city. The best place with the best of childhood times. I watched the Mayor and Gov. this morning and it hurts that the best Police and Fire Department in the world have to listen to these assholes. My wife who grew up around the corner from me and is my partner for 50 years said how did this happen.

That mayor is a little coward With no backbone Tommy. He’s a tool! He didn’t play in the same ball yard as you and me. If he tried we would’ve thrown his a$$ the hell out! The gov, he’s right there with him. His father Mario was no better. So no surprise there.

That's what I always liked about "real New Yorkers." You never need a "road map" to understand where they are coming from...they say it directly and there is little or no confusion of anyone's intentions.
I'm glad that that characteristic is still alive....thanks guys!

Addendum: My father was raised in the Bronx along with his three brothers and four sisters. I suspect he word cacophony was minted to describe a Sunday dinner or Saturday visit with any or all of them in one room...worse when at one table for dinner...a wedding in the family with the celebration following was the noisiest....I once heard my Uncle Ted tell a mouthy short man at the bar, "Climb outta the hole you're standing in and I'll paste you one!" Everything was at high decibel... but the women usually kept things under control. It all made for lots of laughs later....and now, 70 years later, I'm still laughing at it all.
I thought all this was a whole lot more interesting than the quiet, well behaved dinners we were used to at home. Jeez, those days are long gone, but not yet forgotten....my daughter would be appalled if I ever told these stories at her home among her friends.
That's what is great about the gang here...we can tell these stories and the understanding, though stretched, is proffered.

Bux ala Suffolk County, Long Island & Putnam County, NY, Canton, NY, Augusta, GA, Duchess County, NY, Boston, MA. Lancaster, PA, Chapel Hill and Charlotte, NC.

I was shocked that the Mayor actually characterized it as an act of terrorism...must have been a slipup on his part. The family of the scumbag is now whining about their treatment from law enforcement. I'm sure the Mayor will return to form and side with them.

He's known for siding with the scum Greg. With that said he loves to have his home protected by the NYPD. They come no lower than the mayor. Here's a guy who told his kid (His kid is black) that when he grows he should fear the police. The mayor left his balls on the birthing table the day he was born. He's a friggin tool!

His real name is Warren Wilhelm jr but he changed it in 2001. He is a real POS. He just allowed Colin kaeperneck to address the prison inmates on police brutality.
