Day 76 – Is Helen airing out her dirty laundry?
I am sorry I just couldn’t resist… As you can see the nursing home had put out their dirty laundry on their driveway at about 10am. It sat there all day until about 3pm when I started taking pictures and the administrators started moving the bins around.
This looks like it should be a health code violation, but then again Department of Health claims they are in the nursing home everyday so if they are they would see this no? These bins sat there all day and all night, at about midnight I took this picture.
What happened to the laundry company? What about the residents inside? Is there enough clean linen inside to keep all the residents in clean and dry beds? So the quality of care has been better since the strike began according to Jacob when he spoke to Channel 4 News. This doesn’t look like good quality of care to me.
I want to address a comment that was brought up the other day about the rally. The question asked was what was the point of the rally? If you have to ask this question then you really don’t know what is going on, however I will address it by showing who attended the rally and then you can form your own opinion as to what the point of the rally was.

If you took a look around you would see all the support that the striking members had. The amount of people and the political power that was there was unprecedented. If you think that this doesn’t mean anything you are sorely mistaken. Things are moving along now and everyone is looking at Kingsbridge.
Speaking of looking at Kingsbridge, we found out that Hon. James G. Sheehan, NYS Medicaid Inspector General was in the North West Bronx today, we wonder if he found the time to stop by Kingsbridge?
I wonder what Helen must think about all these people that are supporting the striking workers? How does she feel when she looks at her cameras and sees thousands of people right outside her door, not there for her but there in solidarity with the striking members? It amazes me that Helen can still possibly believe she is right and all these people are just fools.
Till tomorrow, STAND STRONG!
