    garbage cans

    My we were up late putting that little diatribe together weren't we? You paint a very vivid picture there though one that I strongly doubt comes from a healthy imagination, no a picture painted that well comes from the minds own eye, a recollection of events and memories of the past. No wonder your so hateful. The things you must have seen, you poor thing. Still amongst your many shortcomings you may also count reading comprehension, allow me to help......"I put a name to my posts".... notice the quotes? That means you can find that statment verbatim in my post above, what you may also notic

    garbage cans

    The reason you know who I am is because I put a name to my posts, if I had something to hide I would log in as Guest. Interesting how you say it's funny when your post shows nothing but rage, you are a very angry person (sad?), in so far as stuffing me into a garbage can you do know where I work and when I'm there as we've had this discussion many times before and as always the invitation for coffee remains standing. Whats funny (or maybe disturbing) is how easy it is to rattle your cage, I expected your response and you didn't disappoint, thanks for the grins, lol. Maybe up the meds? jus

    You busted your azz to shovel that spot out so you could get your car out, if you could have gotten in and driven away without touching a shovel thats exactly what you would have done. I've seen people blocking spots in front of homes they don't even own, classy. On my block a garbage can in a parking spot has a lifespan that can be measured in nanoseconds once I see it then its back on the sidewalk where it belongs. yeah I'm that guy. Want a reserved parking spot? Buy a house with a driveway. jus sayin
  5. Easy there Butchy you don't want to vaporlock on us now do you? What would I do for free entertainment? All the facts are easily verifiable by you but you're not on a quest for the truth now are you? 1) Regardless of what the voices are telling you I am not an Officer, hence the use of "we" when I referred to the Firefighters Union. 2) The bulk of the $119,000 per year the Town allowed toward raises for all Firefighters went to those Firefighters in steps as it should have considering that even in doing this they still did not recieve the actual step raise they were due beca
  6. $150,000 grand a year AND free dry cleaning, well thats a new one,lol. Uniforms are supplied by the Town as required by law, cleaning of uniforms is the responsibility of the Firefighter and there is no uniform allowance. Also Nomex is not to be dry cleaned. 2% raise? Nope the Town held the Firefighters to the 2% cap and with much of the Department still in steps most of the $119,000 a year we were allotted for salary went to the Firefighters still in step and required us to extend those steps from 8 to 15 in order to be 2% cap compliant. So actually the men in steps recieved the bulk of tha
  7. Except for a one year period during the Vartan administration where the TOWN switched the public employees health benefits to NYLCARE the health care provider for the Kearny Fire Dept. employees has always been New Jersey State Health Benefits. If I remember correctly HFD changed providers as a savings to the Town when NJSHB was one of the most expensive plans, obviously things have changed since then. Doc I could write a very long post responding to your statments but I'm sure you wouldn't appreciate my candor so I'll leave it at this, I am a Professional Firefighter for the Town of Kearny a
  8. Funny thing, Years ago when the NAACP initiated it's litigation against the Town and it's residency requirement there was a hiring of 5 RESIDENT firefighters during the process. The NAACP took exception to this and wanted the RESIDENT FIREFIGHTERS dismissed until they had their day in court of course expecting to prevail (obviously they did) and then have non-resident (read Newark) residents hired. These men had quit their jobs and were now forced to pool their money to hire legal representation in hopes of keeping their positions with the KFD. I along with many other Kearny Firefighte
  9. Kearny Engine 1 in who's district the fire occured along with Squad 2 (Kearny Avenue and second due engine to Dukes St.) were in South Kearny participatng in a drill with Kearny Engine 4. The remaining uptown Engine, Engine 3 were on the scene of another incident leaving Truck 1 as the only available unit at the time with 3 men. Not quite as dramatic or scandalous as "Guests" post but more importantly.....factual. Regardless, fire extinguished, residents unharmed and the home and surrounding homes saved. Intersting that you never mentioned the injured and hospitalized Firefighter or at t
  10. Hmmm, it appears I've struck a nerve and such language oh my! Strange most clowns are happy when they make people laugh, you must be one very sad clown. jus sayin
  11. Hahahahahahah! You never disappoint in your predictability, I just knew you were going to head straight for the homosexual innuendo, your posts drip of your preoccupation with it, haven't you ever gone back and reread them? Has it not ever occured to you that you (and only you) spend an awful lot of time questioning others sexual orientation? Why is that? I believe the appropriate term for this is transference. Since you are also preoccupied with where I am and what I'm doing I'll tell you, today I'm laughing....... At you You really need another angle this one just doesn't seem to be wo
  12. Well I can tell you what I'm not doing with my summer, I'm not spending it obsessing about where YOU are, LOL! Interesting that you know how long it takes for an Escort to get to your house. "You're Creepy" Yup that pretty much says it all. jus sayin

    Peruvian Day Parade

    "May all residents of West Hudson enjoy the Peruvian Day festivities graciously hosted by the Honorable Mayor Santos" Really? What a guy! Oh wait the Honorable Mayor Santos doesn't own a home in Kearny and therefore pays no property taxes. Mayor Santos isn't "hosting" anything. We are. My best wishes to the Peruvian Community and their parade. jus sayin
  14. Well I am trying and I appreciate your noticing my effort, baby steps, right? It's all about being accepted. Triple D, Yup I intentionally omitted that fact ,funny how it wasn't brought up til now and not by my biggest detractor, hmmm I wonder why that is? Potiticians, funny people ain't they? jus sayin
  15. Everybody shiould start their day with a smile so here's yours, I sat down and began writing down the names of those I know retired on the 1st of July and came up with 8. Thirteen was wrong and unlucky. The 1.5% vs 35% I will not even debate that, you have a problem with how it's being enacted? Write Gov. Christie it's his referendum we had no part in it's creation if you want it done differently tell him, I see he handles criticism very gracefully and will appreciate your input. jus sayin

    Great job HFD! A good stop. jus sayin
  18. Allow me to introduce you to one of "Guests" most recent posts on the Harrison side of this Forum.... "What a disgrace the Harrison Fire Dept. is and they have proved it again. The towns full compliment of fireman had to push the panic button AGAIN to put out a little ol' fire. When the HFD arrived after quite some time (you know, the I'm tired, five more minutes syndrome) they didn't even know how to operate the equipment until one of 5 other towns arrived. They just stood there and watched until another dept. got there. In my opinion, it was one of the worst cases of cowardice by the HFD I
  19. Well if you read you'll get your answers, that said the Town of Kearny hires out of town Firefighters the town council has seen fit to not push for a residency requirement a big mistake and disservice to the Kearny residents and their children in my opinion. I am of the opinion that there should be a residency requirement, there was one when I was hired I see these kids at fires and am saddened that they'll probably never get a chance to do this job and that's just wrong. But in the end read some of the posts on this Forum would you want to live with people that have such a low opinion of you
  20. Aww you missed me and you learned a new word, nice language do you kiss Mommy with that mouth too? I just love reading the comments about how we should have a volunteer fire dept. It's never I'm going to start one or I want to be a volunteer,how about stepping up to the plate yourself after all it's an easy job right? And you already know so much about it. Lets do some math, what's 1-1+1=? here's a hint the number is right in front of you, that's how I don't come out ahead. Fire dept. Spokesman? Government worker spokesman? Nah but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last nite. Play nice
  21. Lets see how many questions I can answer just using information that already exists in this thread. 1. "you've also never told us what it is exactly that you do for a living, are you ashamed?" Yes, a question and not the first time I've asked it....still no answer but he likes to tell us what kind of underwear he prefers. 2. Yes, I was paraphrasing Guests/ Georges post....."I cannot see why a person's name is required to post an opinion. It is the content of the post that matters, not who said it. For instance, Mr. FMBA would have been better off not using his name and associating himself
  22. Angry? Your kidding right? Mildly bemused would be a more adequate description,lol. A personal attack? Not hardly, trust me if it came to my mind to go down that road there'd be no doubt but there are people out there that have very thin skins and find themselves easily threatened, don't like what I have to say or how I say it? Just move your little mousey on to the next page and all the bad mans words will go away. You come to this little tete a tete years late my friend I suggest you do some reading of past posts and educate yourself or you can continue on the assumption that you know th
  23. Ok lets see if I can take a stab at this,lol.... 1. I'm not an Officer promotions are a matter of management (Town Council/ Mayor) and wages are a part of negotiations between the Town and the Officers Union of which I am not a part. 2. Asking a person what they do for a living is hardly a personal attack it is in the manner of polite conversation a common subject between two persons especially when the conversation is about jobs that said if you asked a person what they did for a living and they responded with the type of underwear they preferred.....well there's your sign. 3.The statemen
  24. Nice post, what's it mean? As far as your knowledge is concerned you have yet to show any, you just throw out inane numbers,facts and accusations with no substantiation whatsoever. Over the years I've volunteered to show you anything you'd like to see or know and told you where to go to find any documentation you may want for proof yet you choose ignorance time and again. I guess that's why they call it bliss, you've also never told us what it is exactly that you do for a living, are you ashamed? As you stated in your past post there's no reason to put a name to it because the content is a
  25. George, The above referenced statement is about reduced spending maybe you missed that. Wanna talk about money? The Firefighters of Kearny voluntarily gave hundreds of thousands of dollars back to the Town by agreeing to wage freezes and comp-time last year in an effort to preserve a minimum manpower level for the Town and it's taxpayers. Don't you remember? You wrote several scathing little tirades stating that we had sold out the younger Firefighters in doing so. Guess you changed your mind. Now after all the Unions of ALL civil service workers in this Town have done to help in con
