It's our 12th anniversary

Hi all,

This blog was started 12 years ago today. Not much has changed. Actually, as we're sure you've noticed, it's only gotten worse.

Many crappy returns.

I was going to say, "Different faces, same crap" - but in many cases, it's the same faces but in different jobs, as our political hacks rotate among jobs, passing them back and forth like a joint.

Congratulations for your great blog and mostly being a true open forum for opinions and discourse. (Unlike the feckless wimps at EV Grieve and Gothamist)

Happy birthday crappy. Keep the crap coming. Wish there wasn't so much crap in this city to blog about to begin with but we now live under mayor dumbdumbs ruling. So let the crap festivities commence!

Its a shame crappy that the people have even less backbone then when you started - hopefully the trashing the honest joe crowley got is a hint of the future.

Cheers to the crappiest blog in NYC! Keep up the good work.

Happy CRAPPY Birthday................and here to to many more years of CRAP and other nonsense that we all know will continue to new heights or CRAPDOM.

And, in those 12 years, NOTHING has changed——except of course YET ANOTHER publicly unauthorized pay raise (again) for the city council ($165,000/year), and NOW it's the worthless troglodytes of the vapid and insipid Assembly's unearned and undeserved turn, all of whom used to steal $79,000, but who can now successfully lift FIRST an initial $110,000, that jumps to $120,000 and finally $130,000 in 2021, while everyone else's petrified paychecks and starvation wages (death by the installment plan!), is locked into unconscionable wages below $30,000 a year (that never keeps pace with ever climbing inflation), and why the taxpaying fools don't riot in the streets over this tyrannical government of CLASS WARFARE, CLASSISM and CLASS STRUGGLE, and their lawless-and-corrupt henchmen, is the greatest mystery of all, when these empowered idiots have so completely betrayed all pretense of public trust, ethics, integrity, accountability and transparency, that they now collectively DEVALUE honesty itself——to pathologically high treasonous, traitorous and anarchist effect——and, the ever languishing public be eternally duped, bilked, RAPED, robbed, scammed, SCARRED FOR LIFE, and damned!

Alas, ALL filthy politicians (not public servants) continue to find security in a lot of strange ways that always rely on the dehumanization of the lives of others (their purported constituencies!), with impunity; they are desiccated leaves that the wind blows——from one filthy gutter to another!

If We, the People can't get a raise, than neither should these filthy politicians, who are ALL PAY and NO WORK! It's a disgrace and depravity that now surpasses the greatest crimes of which these voracious, predatory and rapacious thieves are now THEMSELVES, the 'Greatest Welfare Queens' of them ALL!

I'm a great fan of this blog and read it daily. I either totally agree with or vehemently oppose what is written here. That's what makes it a great blog.
We can always hope for progress in the New Year.......

Cappy deserves a rest. Leave him/her be for a while. Some of you could use a holiday rest too.

JQ LLC said...

Not to worry everyone. Crappy is still busy and forwarded me an email from someone who tried to get a video he saw to be published on Gothamist and their snowflake editors refused to oblige him.

It's a latino guy impersonating a cop stopping people from farebeating by walking through an emergency gate. All for viral pranking on Instagram.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eURzZlpqg_c&feature=youtu.be

It's relatively new.

Gary W said...

Disgraceful he is only pranking people of color. This prankster needs Federal oversite to make sure all people regardless of color, race, creed, religion, sexual orientation get pranked equally.

Crappy is 'Busy' - at what?

That's the BS we hear all the time. Try getting a pol to fund or even pay attention to something that is not on their agenda.

That is what you hear.

Somethin's up.

Oops!? Looks like Ocasio-Cortez put good old crappy OUT OF BUSINESS. Like Lord & Taylor, Christmas windows and jolly old St Nick, our lovely Gringo world is kaput. Adios Queens Crappy we loved you.

You're comparing a paid public servant vested by law with decisions over your life to a blogger who on his own time finds and curates news for you for free? Crappy doesn't owe you anything and it isn't any of your business what he's doing. Take a deep breath there, bucko, and use this intermission to recollect yourself.

We all have lives

A joyous anniversary to you.

Thank you for a forum where we can voice our concerns, complaints and opinions without retribution, or being followed into a restaurant by a violent angry mob for a differing opinion, and and having friends and family harassed...
These are Gestapo tactics from communists rebranded as "progressives"!

it is refreshing to see ALL the comments without the thought control police on the other social media sites.

You are providing a fine public service!!!

Thank you and keep up the good works!

Happy Anniversary, Queens Crap

georgetheatheist said...

Folks, until the Crapman returns:

What does the lettering say on the green chair's white pillow? Last word maybe "Cheers"?

Zoë said...

It would make one interesting Christmas, Anniversary, or July 4th party to have all these interesting people like Atheist George, Mussolini Joe and others attend together at once.
To bad none are in or running for office or put brains together and do something other then bitch and moan like cows that wanna be milked
I would even volunteer to sing and play guitar

Dear Crappy - Thank you for providing a space for public discourse and exposing the tweeding of queens county.
I hope you continue this blog. While it certainly is a cynical and hard slog, this is really the only place where the people can go for the kind of journalism you bring.
Please don’t go…

Auntie Invasion said...

All is forgiven, come home Crappy.

@Zoë . . . a party on Christmas or the 4th? I'd love to party on Valentine's day with you.

Sorry George, My P.O. says I can't party until I'm off probation.
You want his number ?

Yeah, good luck with that.

georgetheatheist said...

@Z . . Maybe, but first tell me what you were collared for? (I'm doing statistical research.)

JQ LLC said...

I hope the reason for Crappy's absence is just a long deserved break and not that the site is being censored for airing remarks that lean radically conservative or radically liberal, or even the occasional xenophobic comment that people vent from time to time. Because google (which owns blogger), facebook and twitter has been monitoring their platforms like a bunch of nitpicking fascist nannies.

Just a thought from someone who is banned from other blogger sites.


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone.

Where is crappy?

Auntie Invasion said...

Did it ever occur to you cranky commies that just maybe Crapper is working overtime and has no time for your crap or Queens Crap?

JQ LLC said...

No, auntie.

Follow the bouncing ball and sing along:

"There's a holdup in the Bronx,
Brooklyn's broken out in fights.
There's a traffic jam in Harlem
That's backed up to Jackson Heights.
There's a scout troop short a child,
Khrushchev's due at Idlewild . . .

Crap 54, Where Are You?"

@Z George --Some young buck about to jump me then cried to a cop about my 007 knife @ the Halsey street L station. It was a total BS charge---That neighborhood is reverting back to shit, all kinds of weirdo's at night.

About Crapman, perhaps the weirdo's got HIM?

That blue light was the Highlander returning to Queens

https://youtu.be/_j6_H-PSml0?t=159

We await your own return Crappy. Like the Highlander, you are one of the immortal bloggers.

I like to use this platform to announce my candidacy for public advocate. The day I take office I will abolish the position. To vote, just write in my handle name.
My platform is that we don't need a redundant public advocate office because the mayor and city council have always been and are supposed to be advocates for the public.

Posts don't appear unless QC approves them, so you can be assured he/she IS around. Nothing wrong with a hiatus once in a while.

Crappy has retired from the blog and told me in an email that he/she was tired of doing it because "it became a burden", and has offered to make me an admin for this blog.

While I appreciate it, and I was mightily surprised and very honored with this honor, I can't do it alone because I have my own blog and I wonder if anyone else who has a blogger account can be an admin too to post articles of interest. So I suggest anyone who does should give Crappy an email. I think it would be better if this forum had more contributors and more ideological viewpoints(since I lean progressive). Being that this blog can continue to thrive and be a true open forum as stated by the John Adams quote above.

Thanks to all. Lets keep the Crap going. Because the crap will never stop in this borough especially with Bezos in town, and our governor and mayor keep fucking it up

JQ, though I (long time QC reader) don't always agree with you, I think you'd make a fine administration of QC. Since you can be so humble as to admit your PoV is not above bias, I think your head is on straight, and the majority of the forum's readers would stick around. Though I occasionally read your blog, QC has a much bigger following and you should consider carefully whether having a wider reach might be worth it. It was my understanding that Crappy gets a ton of inbound content, so you probably don't have to go hunting for a wide variety of viewpoints anyway.

Think about it!

Crappy did enough, a blog is a pain in the ass. Especially one owned by Google. All of New Yorks future was murdered the day all the stupid re-elected the the socialist Mayor & Governor. Nothing can be done. New York is simply overrun with to many stupid who actually WANT communism & socialism. --Include dam thing else our ancestors fraught and died to prevent or escape.

I wish Crappy good luck in any new endeavors and to everybody else may I suggest you spend less time ranting on the Internet and concentrate on locking up your assets.

Anonymous said...

That's too bad. We will miss him/her. Good luck if you take over the reins. I've had enough crap from NYC and am moving out in April. Going to Montana. Big Sky country!

There are still those of us looking for signs of life from Crappy. Glad to see JQ LLC's post; thank you for the news.

This blog always knew everything that was going on. This is the first place I would check every morning. Perhaps a once-a-week post would be a slow down method. We really miss you, Crappie!

JQ LLC Hope you can and will help! Always enjoyed your comments.

The "Crap" must go on !

ron s said...

I hope that the blog continues in some form, as stated above, it is in the first five things I read very day. I have little to no technical/blog/site skills, but would be happy to assist someone otherwise if there is need for someone to intelligently read articles, screen things coming in, or other content-related tasks.

Ned said...

Crappy has gone far above the call of duty and has likely climbed some sort of political ladder. (my guess anyway)
In which case one would need to be in some sort of club to "get in" and you could NEVER have a blog like. Especially this when entering the pond to fight Marxists, communists and socialists.
I hope Crappy becomes mayor and cleans up all the mess Democrats and stupid voters have made of what was once the greatest city in the world. -a once paradise now reduced to a 3rd world dumping ground by socialist progressive scum.
Good luck Crappy

JQ LLC said...

Thanks to all who wrote back. Much appreciated, I wanted to get reader approval first which is why I waited a bit (and also because I'm still in the midst of writing my posts for my own blog, Impunity city, that's my baby after all)

I am going to update this blog as much as I could, I am going to keep this going in the same format Crappy did with posting news items, mostly from the "worlds borough". I hope this works, this blog is going to look pretty raw for a while, my writing isn't that good and I don't have any web or photoshop skills (or even photoshop), but at least y'all will have a place to vent.

I have to get a new email account though so I can post requests.

Good Luck to you in keeping up the site. There is a great need for the blog!!
