This should increase ridership for Buses and Trains:

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)— A legal fight over freedom of speech is spilling into New York’s subway tunnels. A sign about “Jihad” is set to debut next week. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says it crosses the line, but a judge disagrees.

WCBS 880′s Paul Murnane On The Story

On the region’s subways and buses, most ads we see don’t get much attention. But that may change with a pro-Israel ad that will soon grace MTA property which reads:“In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat jihad.”

The ad is a clear swipe against radical Muslims.

“It’s going to create problems for no reason, you know?” Maguid El Ghazzawi of Astoria told CBS 2’s Sean Hennessey on Wednesday night.

At a Manhattan Mosque, not all were pleased with the fact the ad will soon go public.

“It is negative, not positive,” Harlem’s Abdus Khan said.

“I think it is something stupid. For somebody they are very ignorant,” El Ghazzawi said.

For almost a year, the MTA fought the running of the ad, saying the words “savage” and “jihad” demean a group, but in the lawsuit a federal judge ruled that barring the ad violated the First Amendment and the “….fundamental importance of the free flow of ideas…”

“What the court said,‘no demeaning’ is too general a phrase,” said Leon Friedman, a constitutional law expert at Hofstra University.“Government just can’t say ‘I like this ad, I don’t like that ad.’ They just can’t do that.”

While the MTA said its hands are tied, the ad’s sponsor celebrated the victory.

“Political speech is the most protected speech,” said Pamela Geller of the American Freedom Defense Initiative.

Geller said the ad isn’t anti-Muslim, but a response to an anti-Israeli ad the MTA ran last year.

Unions have their place, but in many cases, they have overstepped their original intent and place. Unions should not be running the countries government through their paid politicians!
But given the direction of the Republican Party and Right to Work States, it will not take long to go back to abusive work places! No more 40 hour work week, no more over time, no more sick days, no more vacation, no more lunch hour, no more health insurance and so on. Becareful what you ask for, you might just get it and not like it!

Yep those nasty unions. All they did for us was to provide a 40 hour work week, paid vacations, a tolerable living wage, ridding us of child labor exploitation, safer and better working conditions and I could go on.
I might suggest, that is if you are capable of comprehension, that you read a few chapters of a book by John Spargo called "The Bitter Cry of Children". Now to make it easier for the likes of you, you don't have to read the whole book, most chapters are 3 or 4 pages long, detailing the ordeals children went through as part of the work force. Don't know where to get the book? Try the Mid York Library. You do know what a library is, don't you?
Indeed. That's the impression I have as well. New York Rapper

RFD,unions saved American workers from corp. thugs.That's why repukes want to destroy them,and put out so much bull shit,for their dimwitted dupes to believe.Most of these anti-unionists have never even heard of the Triangle Fire,The Bethlehem Steel strike massacre,The lethal Alcoa strike,the Anaconda copper mine strike,or any of the other acts of courage,union members displayed to make life better for the people of today.It took guts to strike,when you knew company goons and police were going to try to beat you into a bloody pulp,and kill your family in the bargain if they had too.Books will do no good,they are either too lazy to read them,or do not have the skills to comprehend what they read.

furious,do you think corps. are lily white.Corruption in unions is an exaggerated myth,for the most part.The vast majority of unions are scrupulous and honestly run.If not their union leaders are jailed.I find it curious,that you make no mention of corps. that don't bat an eye at getting workers killed due to unsafe conditions.Please see BP refinery and oil platform explosions,or Massey energy coal mine cave ins,resulting in workers deaths.Or check the lengths that companies go to,and the dirty tricks played,to keep workers from unionizing.There are 2 sides to every story.Remember the majority of jobs outsourced overseas were not unionized.

A bunch of emotional Charles Dickens foo-foo that is COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT to the PUBLIC SECTOR unions that are the issue.

Go ahead - tell us all about the horrendous cases of courageous PUBLIC SECTOR workers standing up to the vicious and eeevul GOVERNMENT employers exploiting and oppressing them.

There is no moral or economic justification for public sector unions - period.

Before you vote republican, ask yourself why. Do you really want to work until you are 70 years old? Do you really want to give Obamacare that says the insurance companies have to spend at least 80% on your care and not CEO salaries. Do you think they should continue to pay bonuses to employees who deny your health claims? Picture New York and New Jersey right now without FEMA. Its on their chopping list along with any other group that has money that they want. Republicans want privatize government agencies. How will they generate wall street profits in the future from the Prison systems? Think about it? Scary huh. Do you know that they also want the highway systems given to them. You will pay a fee for 390, 81, 17, 86, etc and they'll maintain the road -- RIGHT!!! Kiss your social security goodbye and vote because you're a loyal party member.

Swallowing the 4 year old incompetent Obama snakeoil is not good for your health, nor that of the nation.
