    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 notice is that what it doesn't say is that I put.. MY.. name to my posts. Right Guest? Again if you'd like to know my real name (many on this site already do) and as a matter of fact you yourself have stated that you knew who I was then stop by have a cup of coffee and I'll be more than happy to show you my drivers license,lol. I will give you a little tidbit about me though I didn't go to Kearny High. Now what were we discussing? Oh that's right garbage cans.lol Take a deep breath and calm down your blind hatred is letting your inner ignorance come screaming out. Oh..Mom says Hi... jus sayin

    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 sayin

    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 because of the Towns unwillingness to deviate from the 2% cap. To make it simple for you the contractual step raises far exceeded $119,000 therefore the Town did not pay them. Looking for the document that proves it? It's called a contract and is part of the public record. 3) Kearny Firefighters do not earn anything near $150,000 a year if I did I'd retire tomorrow, neither does a Captain for that matter and I feel safe in saying that no Firefighter in the State of NJ earns that amount. The truth is it's just an outrageous made up number you chose in order to inflame readers of your posts that you rely on to be as ignorant as you. 4) Moron? LOL. Thats pretty funny, sorry was that supposed to make me angry? You know Butch in retrospect maybe you should consider a slight change in your screen name, maybe swap that "U" for an "I" I think it would fit you better, don't you? jus sayin
  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 that money and Sr. firefighters recieved about 1%. Boat Payment? No I don't own one but if your alluding to unused sick or vacation time payouts we don't have those either, a Firefighter only gets paid if he's out sick you cannot accrue sick time, vacation time is also required to be used in the calander year it is earned and can only be carried over with the approval of the Chief, again no payouts. Promotions? They are a decision made by management (Chief) to fill vacancies or as needed, the Firefighters Union has no hand in promotions most obviously because we do not represent Officers, they have their own Union. How promotions create layoffs is beyond me, common sense would say if your going to reduce manpower then a corrosponding decrease in management would also be occuring but maybe not in your world. Interesting you consider Harrison FD doing great in the wake of 5 Jersey City firefighters being injured in a Harrison fire this past year and local headlines and Mayors calling for Harrison to step up their manpower. As I understand it Harrison is presently attempting to gain a SAFER grant that would allow them to substantially increase their Dept. manpower. Whenever I read posts such as this I often wonder if the person posting is ignorant of the facts or just posting prevarications out of malice. So Butch which are you? The idiot or the liar? jus sayin
  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 and have been one for 25yrs now, I am also a lifelong resident of Kearny, I was born here. This is my job I don't play at it and I don't interfere with others doing their respective jobs. Your ambition to become a paid firefighter is quite apparent, your arguments to achieve that desire through various "plans" are to put it lightly and politely, unfeasable. What annoys me is that you know it and if you don't then you have no business commenting here. Your have a little knowledge but that doesn't make you smart, just dangerous. BTW I was at the FE Rogers fire and am intimately aware of the actions of the E Newark FD during that fire and many others over the years, out of common decency and a show of respect I've always chosen to keep my thoughts to myself and not air them on this forum, food for thought. Harrison Senior I see your ongoing battle with the truth using your army of ignorance is alive and well and as usual..... failing miserably. jus sayin
  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 Firefighters went to Judge Marion Barry Trumps courtroom to show support for these men and their families, residents all, when she made her decision. I don't remember seeing any of you Conserned Citizens there. You guys are a day late and a dollar short. jus sayin
  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 the very least the residents and their losses. And I do believe the residents may differ in opinion in regards to your "small smoke/fire condition" comment. jus sayin
  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 working out real well for you though I do owe you a debt of gratitude you gave me my first good laugh this week and for that I thank you. Good luck with the Escorts regardless of their gender. jus sayin
  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
