they sound like prime candidates for working at AIG and all of those places.

This corruption should not be tolerated.  They are an affront to all those who have served honorably.

 

These corrupt individuals should be stripped of their pensions entirely. 

 

It would be the quickest way to discourage such corrosive behavior in the future.

Agree even though the title suggests that it's only cops and firefighters. Maybe I missed it but how many of these were neither. And in a city as big as New York this is actually kind of low

Totally agree.

 

But I'm also in favor of completely doing away with all government pensions.

 

I was (got out a long time ago) a 3rd generation firefighter, father served for 42 years, and just retired, and this type of thing makes me very sad.

I'd like to apply this to ALL politicians as well.

    • A hot steak straight from the grill tastes 1000 times better than any of that stuff to me. I've tried to lie to myself and tell myself it doesn't but it won't work, lol.

    • I like Funchess, but it wasn't that long ago there were huge threads in here about moving KB to TE, trading him or cutting him. I knew throwing in Steve Smith would cause people to compare KB and Smith (not my intention) and not take a real look at how well KB has actually done. I love Benjamin and after two years (one rookie and one post ACL) I think we've seen him dominate enough games to not poo on him as much as we do.

      I want Funchess to take the next step but I sure don't think of him as capable of replacing Benjamin as our top WR. If he gets to that point then god help the defenses we face.

      One note on the lab disappearances last year. He was coming of an ACL injury which normally means your first year back isn't as good. Wes Welker is a guy I remember that had the same injury and came back a bit earlier and wasn't the same after a 10 month rehab. 40 less catches and 500 less yards. KB had 13 months but you could see how well he started and I think he was going too hard too soon. He looked dominant his first two weeks against Denver and SF. After the season Proehl admitted they thought he was ready too soon and that the strength coach who said he wasn't ready was right.

      I'm expecting big things out of KB this year and I'm on his bandwagon already and I really hope the memes have him motivated with a huge chip on his shoulder. I also hope that our new weapons open things up compared to last year where defenses knew we weren't throwing it to our WR3, TE2 and RB. Cover Olsen, KB and Ginn and blitz the rest. Cam didn't stand a chance. I think we may have opened up our WR3 and RB now.

    • To each his own. I think they are supremely flavorful and delicious. Romaine, raw spinach leaves, and cabbage (shredded or in the form of slaw) are pretty much "accepted" ways to eat, but my wife and I (and sometimes my teen son) have just taken it a step further. And let's not talk about all the delicious red, yellow and green peppers. Yummy! Not saying this is you, but sometimes you just have to reprogram your mind and your taste buds. Each veggie and fruit has a flavor and aroma all its own. We destroy so much of the natural flavor and aroma during the cooking process. BTW, nutritionally, blending is superior to juicing.
