Where's the opinion on the new CSEA contract? Big raises and benefits were awarded during the worst economic time in 70 years. Newsday has no opinion? This contract is an outrage. What about the taxpayers? Calif. and NYS are looking to cut salaries. Nassau county gives raises, no story there? Hey editors, adjust your attitudes, your bias is showing.

What ever happened to a fair days pay for a fair days work. These days everyone just seems to feel like they are entitled to rip off the public in every way possible, from the greedy bankers to the greedy unions, the attitude is what can they can get.

I think this all starts with our politicians, who set the example with a complete lack of morals and ethics, spending taxpayer money to help themselves, their cronies and supporters, to staying in office despite any number of ethical if not criminal violations. How Charles Rangel is still in office, and even a committee chairman is beyond belief.

Our congress even just gave themselves a raise while the rest of us are barely making it. Until there is accountability starting at the top, things will never change.

They will change when Joe taxpayer votes out every incumbent, regardless of party affiliation. That will send the message that union money, lobbyists and patronage jobs are meaningless, when everyone gets off their duff and votes. It is coming, the taxpayer revolt is almost here. We needed the 2nd great depresssion, but people are finally waking up.

Although this sounds outrageous, this was BUILT IN to the officers contract! Newsday should be blaming the politicians in Malverne who agreed to this contract, NOT THE COPS!!

WARNING, newsday is now using bogus calls to "save the tax payers money" to advance their left-wing social agenda. check out today's viewsday op-ed called, the immigration boondoggle. it argues that enforcing immigration laws costs too much money. newsday has no shame. newsday has never cared one bit about wasting tax payer money and they will use any bogus argument or tragic incident to get their left-wing social agenda (like a total amnesty for all illegals currently in the country) enacted into law. so, beware of the newsday's vile, lying, despicable tactics. they could CARE LESS about saving you money. and cancel this bleeping paper. it's your enemy!

So if someone leaves a stack of money on a table by accident, it's OK to take it because, hey-the person left it there, it's not your fault. Maybe if these greedy jerks had the decency and moral fortitude NOT to take the days off and then claim pay for them, we'd all have a better taste in our mouths when we say the word 'policeman'.

The Pigs approved the contract. The politicians approved the contract. If the fools on Gold Place or Cornwell ave or anyone with a brain in Malverne had just read the contract before it was signed. Was it made public? Will anyone in Malverne hire a lawyer?
