NYC Dems Wants OBL Reward For Unions

From an unquestioning Associated Press:

NY lawmakers eye bin Laden bounty for 9/11 victims

Sun May 8, 2011

NEW YORK – Two congressmen from New York City say that up to $50 million in Osama bin Laden bounty money should go to first responders, survivors and families of victims of the Sept. 11 attacks.

The Rewards for Justice Program established a bounty of $25 million in 2001 to help bring bin Laden to justice. In 2004, Congress passed legislation providing the secretary of state up to $50 million to award for information leading to the capture of bin Laden.

Bin Laden was killed last week. It’s unclear whether anyone is eligible for the bounty.

U.S. Reps. Anthony Weiner and Jerrold Nadler said Sunday that the funds should be redirected to organizations that assist first responders, families and survivors affected by the 2001 terror attacks

Organizations probably directly run or indirectly controlled by the New York City public sector unions.

But you know, whenever there is money to be had, Messrs Schumer and Weiner are always ‘first responders.’

Still, why shouldn’t this $50 million dollars go to all the families of soldiers who have been killed or maimed in this war on terrorism?

After all, the first responders in New York City are public sector union employees who enjoy wonderfully high salaries and wonderfully lavish healthcare and pension programs. The 9/11 families have already received millions of dollars in compensation for their losses.

Meanwhile, the men and women who have actually waged the war on terror have gotten nothing but their meager pay and meager benefits.

But of course these two Democrat hacks would want this money to go into New York City’s public sector union’s coffers. That way a portion of it will be sure to find its way into their own campaign war chests.

    A reward or bounty is an offer, and it can only be claimed by someone who performs the terms and conditions of the offer.

    A policeman or soldier is already under an obligation to capture the outlaw and therefore cannot claim the reward.

      Police have unions fighting for them when they are shot or hurt on the job.
      Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen stand alone against an ungrateful government that would sooner see their demise than offer REAL help.
      I personally know these horrors and try to help fellow Veterans navigate the Red Tape and Rings of Fire purposely place there by the very same assholes who sent them into harms way.
      When you are missing a limb, blinded, wounded, ect…..these are HUGE obstacles. To make a long story short…….if anyone deserves the money, I vote for those that have “EARNED” it!!

    It’s tough to top Schumer in sheer sociopathy and in-your-face-without-a-care corruption. Sadly, there are many Demoncraps who have that ability. They seem locked in their own capitalistic inter-mural competition to see who can be the most vile.

      Chuckie has to profoundly regret that he isn’t half black half white, half American half foreign, half Christion half muslim half athiest, half gay half bi, half educated half not, half smart half stupid, half marxist half not.

      Chickie’s strategy of being 100% corrupt, 100% anti-american, 100% athiest, 100% marxist, 100% hate-filled, 100% demagogue, 100% lip-curlingly disgusting just isn’t taking him to the top of the shit-pile.

      “… half black half white, half American half foreign, half Christion half muslim half athiest, half gay half bi, half educated half not, half smart half stupid, half marxist half not.”

      And that my friends is the making if a half arsed president. The only thing presidential about him is the seal on the podium, the other half of him is pure… bull****.

    Off the track here perhaps (I should be posting in the Amtrack thread even) but I was ruminating for a moment, on the day after elections in Nov 2012 after Obama has been soundly thrashed, and my mind quickly went to “turn it over to the S&L creative geniuses” as to Obama’s rants over the next weeks, Michelle’s statements of the shame she feels about America, his finger pointing, jabbing actually, pardons, executive orders,and appointments, and Eric Holder doing all sorts of dirty work to get convicts, Muslims etc back out on the street and funded, or provided with free cars, houses, etc from dealers/bankers otherwise undergoing the Rev Jackson treatment.

    Then again, there is the open house thrown at the White House for the DC residents who are slaves due to their lack of statehood and voting power, and the place is turned over to the incoming Pres West or Cain or Pawlenty or Daniels in a shambles, or to Trump for him to “re-develop.” Of course, there could be riots in Chicago with Grants Park being trashed, the owners of the White Sox being forced to change the team name. If we are lucky, Obama flees the country with the $50m reward money (I Got OBL) after being offered the crown or septre to rule some newly formed utopian state carved out of the Sudan, or an island in Indonesia or the Philippines that has declared Sharia law and independence. He can wear his Nobel Prize medal as his medallion of State while remaming his new home Naboob and work on Transcendental Locomotion (sorrry, Bedknobs and Broomsticks fans)….

    Wonder if Moochelle will follow, and cut holes in her burkha for her bare arms….

    I look forward to the day, hoping we survive the next 17 months with our sanity and our freedoms.
