Good point. You can tell it burns the people who profit off the sheep to see you post that it got 7 Xs in 3 minutes lmao! They WANT it to stay in the toilet.<quoted text>
I think people who are Utica natives (thank goodness i'm not) can see just fine, unfortunately many of them seem to lack the critical thinking ability to see past the whitewash put forth by city hall and the media.
Yes, the media. WKTV and the OD are nothing more than public relations departments for city hall. Did you read the article about the PD & FD salaries? It was incredible - a few facts and enough numbers at the very beginning to make it casually pass as objective, the rest of the piece is just fluff. The usual spinsters were happy to defend their exorbitant salaries, because there is no dissenting opinion.
People read stuff like this, watch similar tripe on WKTV, and happily accept that not only is nothing wrong - it's getting better. My co-workers thankfully don't have the long term memory problems that other natives do, they know that empty promises like Nano are just that - by the time everyone realizes that it was a pipe dream, the people responsible are out of office and we go on to the next pie-in-the-sky idea.
It's sad really. I believe that most of the people around here are genuinely nice and good. Maybe too nice, they refuse to hold people accountable for the failure of the city.
Best thing is to get out and throw gas.
