Queens Crap remakes a modern musical

Following on the success of "How Green Was My Council", Queens Crap proudly presents our latest: a modern day musical, inspired by the 2006 hit movie Dreamgirls.

Some lyrics from "This Land is Our Land"

Chorus:
This land was your land, but now it’s our land
That’s Willets Point, on ol’ Long Island
From Flushing Creek to Flushing Meadows
This land was made for us to take

As we were walking a ribbon of highway
We saw above us planes in the skyway
We saw below us an Iron Triangle
This land was made for us to take

Chorus

For many decades, we’ve wanted Willets
So we treated the place like a pile of shi-it
But now we’re ready for shiny condos
This land was made for us to take

Chorus

What we need now is a convention center
We think it will look just so much better
And it means lots more developer money
This land was made for us to take

Chorus

Big Evan went there while they were working
But when he got there, they started squawking
Looks like we’re headed to court to show them
This land was made for us to take


Coming soon to the Trylon, Elmwood and RKO Keith's Theaters.

A masterpiece which defines the gruesome actions of the Bloomberg Administration to a tee!

This isn't just fiction, its based very closely on a true story.

An egomaniac and his squaking bitches conspire to ruin the American dream, backed by a bunch of asswipe lobbyists.

I think we need a photoshop of Comrade Michael Stalin Bloomberg burning the American Flag.

How about a sequel, based on the life of Michael Bloomberg called 'I'm a Yankee Doodle Dipshit'

What's next? Sgt. Bloomberg's Lonely Tweeders Band?

Queens Crapper said...

Excellent idea! I can put all the do-nothings from the administration behind him. Lots of heads to Photoshop for that album cover.

Why is there no investigation of this:



Monserrate draws donations from Willets Point opponents
Hiram Monserrate
By Adam Pincus

Businesses opposed to the massive redevelopment of Willets Point in Queens gave at least $37,500 in contributions over the past six months to the city council's most vocal critic of the project, according to the latest campaign finance records.

Queens Council Member Hiram Monserrate, a candidate for the state senate seat representing Corona, Jackson Heights, Elmhurst and East Elmhurst, received another $19,250 from other real estate interests among his total of $240,114 in contributions since January.

Monserrate, a Democrat, is running in the November election unopposed for the seat now held by Democrat John Sabini, who announced his retirement in June.

Members of the Willets Point Industry and Realty Association, which has been fighting the plan to redevelop the area with the use of eminent domain, contributed the bulk of the $37,500.

Member firms that donated included Tully Construction Company, which gave $21,000 through several different entities; Feinstein Iron Works and its president, which gave $5,000 combined; and the trash hauling company Crown Container, which gave $3,000.

Other major donors to Monserrate's war chest include unions and private contributors.

Monserrate said he was defending small businesses against the Bloomberg administration's $3 billion redevelopment plan.



Yeah right. He lining his pockets with some of that hot foreign immagrant money.

Truman Harris said...

Isn't it sad that the businesses of Willets Point have to donate to their elected officials in order to get them to represent their interests like they were elected to do in the first place?

A real shame.

The city is a mob. A legal mob that is now legalizing theft, but only when they steal. You and I still can't.

From a friend who owns a business at Willets Point:
He told me that when this projected was introduced they were contacted by the so-called mega developers personally to ascertain the value of their properties (and businesses)..Then came the KELO decision in 2005 by the 'lefties' on The Supreme Court that allow any municipality (Whatever the reason) to 'take' peoples land based on tax revenue alone. Suddenly, with that decision, NYC is SO EMPOWERED by the virtual indiscriminate use of eminent domain, they are railroading these people. But using all the niceties that you expect from politicians with agendas. And the lackeys like Claire Shulman and Helen Marshall jump on the 'not so subtle' gravy train. What hedonistic immorality!
