It is pointless, unless it is enforced. That hasn't happened so far.

If you expect the movie "The Enforcer"!

Don't expect it from DOB.

They take their marching orders from the builders and those crooked politicians (yet to be unmasked)!

They keep coming up with new regulations and laws without any additional funds for enforcement.

Bloomberg keeps shoveling his BS to keep the masses thinking he's actually doing something.

The man has turned his back on the middle class of NYC.

Notice how they are all smirking in the photo. That's what you look like when you screwed the middle class. We should all remember that look. Take a good look at the photo.
