No More 'Happy Hookers' for FDNY

Welcome to Michael Bloomberg's nanny state. No more smoking, you better count your calories, say anything out of line and his boss Al Sharpton will be coming after you, and whatever you do, don't have a sense of humor.
MESSAGE to the Fire Department: Bring back the Hookers!

For a mom who lost her son on Sept. 11, 2001, it was the final straw.

In a blatant fit of political correctness, the brass in charge of the FDNY has won a three-year battle with a firehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn - whose men were forever known as the "Happy Hookers."

After much resistance, the department painted over the "Hookers" slogan, which had graced the firehouse forever.

Now, the mother of a fireman killed in the line of duty wants to paint it back.

"This is like putting another hole in my heart," said Dee Ragusa, whose firefighter son, Michael, was killed on Sept. 11.

"Nobody cares about 9/11 anymore. They [the firemen] are just denoted as a bunch of bums. That's what hurts."

She has written to Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta, to no avail. Now, Dee is contemplating taking matters into her own hands.
Read the rest.

These guys lay it all on the line and 343 of them made the ultimate sacrifice on 9/11. But the brass and Bloomberg treat them like little kids.

Way to pay them back for all they've done.
