Utility workers pelted with eggs
after Bridgeport, Conn.
mayor blasts provider

FOX News, by Cristina Corbin and AP staff

Original Article

Posted By:CEP, 11/2/2012 1:58:06 PM

Angry residents pelted utility crews with eggs as they tried to restore power in Bridgeport, Conn., after the mayor claimed the local power company had "shortchanged" the state's largest city as it tries to recover from superstorm Sandy. United Illuminating workers reported eggs and other objects being thrown at them a day after Mayor Bill Finch said the utility was taking care of wealthy suburbs while his constituents suffered. The unrest caused United Illuminating to pull its workers out until the city agreed to provide police protection.

Having lived through worse conditions than these folks are facing living on gulf coast most of my life you do not upset these workers who have a hard enough job as it is.

The utility workers can probably be more productive elsewhere. Put these morons at the bottom of the priority list.

Not sure if this is one of the places that would not allow non-union crews in to help. If so, instant karma. If not, my bad.

There's no excuse for this kind of behavior-I don't care what kind of trauma you've lived through.

Some things never change.

January 2003: Bridgeport's mayor, Joseph P. Ganim, will be on trial on 24 counts of federal bribery, corruption and racketeering charges, the fourth big-city Connecticut mayor in 13 years to face criminal charges.
Sentenced to nine years in Club Fed.

June 2006: Bridgeport Mayor John M. Fabrizi admitted to cocaine and alcohol abuse while serving as mayor.

May 2007: Fabrizi announced he would not seek re-election, but served on the Democratic State Central Committee of Connecticut for the 2008-2010 term. Currently, Fabrizi is a supporter of Bridgeport's current Mayor Bill Finch.

October 2012: Mayor Bill Finch, of Bridgeport CT, was caught joking about corruption saying, “We will get the votes even if they are a few days late”.

The common thread? All are DemocRATS.

The people of Bridgeport are getting the governemtn they deserve.

The true irony, folks. From the front lines. I live in one of those "wealthy" burbs to which the dimwit mayor refers.
No electricity still. Have not seen a single utility truck yet. And you know why? They're all in freaking, non tax paying Bridgeport!

The more I hear about and from some of these "Sandy" victims...the less concern and respect I have for them. Let's see you are without power, someone is there trying to restore it and you throw eggs at them. WTH??? I live in Houston and in Ike and Alicia, our home was without power for 2 weeks. There was NEVER any behavior remotely similar to this anywhere in TX. Is this how all "yankees" behave? or just the repulsive liberal progressive ones? I'm appalled that these people are Americans. That mayor is repulsive and so are these people throwing eggs a blight/pox(deservingly so) on all their(liberal progressive) houses.

That people would attack those who are there to help and working long hours in dangerous conditions is absurd and shows the real 47% entitlement mentality. Pack up and leave guys.

It would be extremely interesting to learn what is in the minds of those throwing eggs at utility workers trying to restore power. Have any of the egg tossers been interviewed by the media? I would really like to know what their justification is for behavior that seems obviously counterproductive. There must be an angle here I am missing. Nobody is that stupid, not even Obama supporters.

Well. . .maybe I should reserve judgment. The kinds of people who vote for Obama have in the past been known to burn down their own neighborhoods and attack firemen if they are unhappy with something. But that is riot and mob mentality. I have never before heard of people throwing eggs at utility workers who are there to restore their power for them.

If they have a beef with the utility company, go to the office go to the higher ups. If I was on one of those trucks, I would have gotten in my truck and left for my own safety, they can sit in the dark.

Very telling. Kudos to #24. End Times prophecy: But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.

It is not an optimistic scenario.

In the latest case of Muslim militants seeing a secret agent with wings and a beak, Iranian-backed Hezbollah forces are keeping the eagle under lock and key after it was found by hunters near the town of Ashkout, northeast of Beirut.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft
