I’ve Never Been Among So Many Heroes at One Time

Last week’s rally in Trenton was soggy. Today’s was downright cold. But for anyone standing among thousands of firemen, police, corrections officers, emergency response personnel, and even a handful of supporting teachers, the atmosphere was electric. Speakers were union leaders and just about any Democratic politician in the State House – with one exception.

You would think that this crowd would portray Chris Christie as the bogeyman – and you would not be disappointed. But the overriding theme was expressed in the repeated chants of “Where’s Sweeney?”

Senate President Steve Sweeney’s capitulation to the anti-union interests was foremost among the concerns of the endless sea of blue uniformed men and women in front of the State House.

    The purpose of the rally was to ????

    A. Get members rehired

    B. Not pay any additional money  

       for health care

    C. Bash Christie

    D. Bash Sweeney

    E. Protect Collective Bargaining rights that are currently not being attacked.

    F. Not reform the pension fund

    G. All of the above

    Not being there I can only ask, did they accomplish anything ?

    Are they lobbying against S2718 ,the Sweeney/Beck health care bill?

    Are they for tax increases ?

    Please,someone tell me why they were out in the cold today.
