For the children: striking NYC school bus drivers slash tires on buses. “Saboteurs stabbed holes in tires of two school buses and deflated tires on 10 others idled by school bus drivers’ strike, authorities and bus company employees said today.” To remind you, it costs NYC nearly $7K per student to drive them around on yellow busses, about twice as much as No. 2, LA. Maybe it’s time to consider alternatives to the public schools, busses and all.

Tag whatever union that represents the drivers collectively. They want bargain that way, punish them that way.

Of course Mayor Bloomtard would never do anything about his union pals slashing tires, he’s much too busy trying to ban transfats, soda and guns.

New York City drivers get $40.000 per year. Missoula, Montana drivers get $11.85 per hour and usually get 1.5 to 2 hours of work in the morning and the same amount in the afternoon. They need a union in Montana too.

Have em take taxi’s. Cant be any more expensive. Maybe the cab drivers and the bus drivers unions can get after each other. Perhaps a big shoot out. Where’s the downside.

Public transportation!
Between the subways and city busses, the school bus routes are redundant.

Have ‘em walk. To the nearest school.

I know, I’m a little crazy that way.
