Well I Thought, No I Was Expecting The Leader Of This Mayoral Circus Ring To Make Herself Shine From Another’s Bad Publicity. Only When Bad Press Befall’s An Opponent Does She, Christine Quinn Shine.

Like This:

In a public spanking, retired public-school teacher Peg Brunda refused to shake Anthony Weiner’s hand after telling him his pervy behavior made him unfit to be mayor.

“Had I conducted myself in the manner in which you conducted yourself, my job would have been gone,” the 30-year teaching veteran told Weiner during a visit to Superstorm Sandy-damaged homes on Staten Island.

“In the privacy of your home?” asked Weiner defensively.

“In the privacy of my home . . . I don’t quite understand how you would feel you would have the moral authority as the head administrator in this city to oversee employees when your standard of conduct is so much lower than the standard of conduct that’s expected of us.”


Having Been For Year’s In The City Council As A Member Then As It’s Ringleader,Who Best To Detail Another’s Dysfunction While Ignoring One’s Own Failing’s Christine Quinn Is The Epitomy Of Hypocrisy To Call Anthony Weiner Unfit To Lead NYC As It’s Mayor.While It Is True That Disgraced Former Congressman Anthony Weiner Is UNFIT To Be The leader Of NYC, We Must Never Ever Forget That The So Called Speaker A Democrat Saw Fit To Overturn Through Sheer Gall, Two Voter Referendum’s Voted On On Two Seperate Occassion’s To Limit A Mayor’s And City Council Term’s To Two, Four Year Term’s.

Like This:

“Today our government chose to empower itself rather than the people it serves,” said Thompson in 2008, who’s again running for mayor.

In an email, Thompson’s spokesman Brendan Brosh wrote, “The term limits vote was a dark moment for the people of New York where the will of voters that was expressed on two separate occasions at the ballot box was overturned by the Mayor and the Speaker of the City Council. Voters have long memories and will remember those elected officials that knowingly disregarded the will of New Yorkers in 2008.”

She Oversaw The implementation Of CityTime, The 911 Emergency System, The Theft Of Water Front Properties By The Wealthy And Well Connected Developer’s, The Explosion Of The Homeless Population To Level’s Bot Seen Since The Great Depression, The Closure And Fire Sale Of Our Precious Hospital’s, The NYPD Ticket Scandal, The Wholesale Closure’s Of NYC School’s, The Invasion Of Private Charter School’s Into Our Public School Building’s, And The Loss Of Thousand’s Of Rent Regulated Apartment’s.

The List Of Failures Is Quite Endless For This Circus Leader, More Of A BIG CLOWN If You Ask The Populace.

Of Course Next To Her Greatest Democratic Failure Of Overturning Term Limit’s There Is Her Participation In The Infamous Slushfund That Saw A Few Official’s From The City Council On Their Way To Prison, All Under Watch.

Like This:

After a spirited, emotional and at times raucous debate, the New York City Council voted, 29 to 22, on Thursday afternoon to extend term limits, allowing Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg to seek re-election next year and undoing the result of two voter referendums that had imposed a limit of two four-year terms.

The vote was a major victory for Mayor Bloomberg — a billionaire and lifelong Democrat who was elected mayor as a Republican in 2001, won re-election in 2005, became an independent last year, and decided just weeks ago that he wished to seek a third term for himself in 2009 — and for the Council’s speaker, Christine C. Quinn. But the intense acrimony surrounding the decision left a sharply divided Council and could ultimately damage the mayor’s popularity. Read the rest of this entry »

I Can Not Say That Should I Have Been Born In Germany, As A Jew Or A German, Witnessing The Advancement Of Rules And Edict’s  Made Only For The Purpose Of Propaganda Or Control Of A People, That I Would Not Stay Silent Or Object And Say Nothing.

No, I Would Love To Think That I Would State As A German My Opposition, And Had I Been A Jew Would Have Had The Telemetry To Flee.

That Slushfund Quinn Is Concerned For The Youth Of This City, That She Proposes Saving Them From Themselves By Changing Around Old Rules And Calling Them Original Is Quite Hilarious….What I Found Hilarious Was That She Loves To Label Her Greed As Concern….She Was So Concerned For The Low Wage Worker Of This City So Much Care And Concern For Them That She Stalled A Bill To Give Them Sick Days Pay For Over 1,105 Day’s….And In The Last Year Of Her ILLEGAL Third Term…..So Much Was Her Concern…

Not To Be Seen As The Weak Candidate By Those That Have No Opinion Of Her Past 8 Year’s As Leader Of A Corrupt, Often Times Dysfunctional City Council, Slushfund Tinged City Council Speaker  Christine Quinn wants to raise the minimum age to buy tobacco from 18 to 21.  Never Mind That As Soon As Any Person Turn’s 18 Year’s Of Age They MUST By Federal Law Register With Selective Service’s For Whatever Purpose’s The U.S. Government May Need Them For In The Future.

Here Lies The All American U.S, Government's Empowered 18 Year Old's That Under  Christine Quinn's Misguided Policies Could Not Even Buy A Pack Of Cigarette's, Like Those Many African American's That Went To War Yet Came Home To Discrimination.

Here Lies The All American U.S, Government’s Empowered 18 Year Old’s That Under Christine Quinn’s Misguided Policies Could Not Even Buy A Pack Of Cigarette’s, Like Those Many African American’s That Went To War Yet Came Home To Discrimination.

That The Federal Government May Use A Person To Fight And Perhaps’ Give Their Life Over For Military Purposes Say’s That In The Eyes Of The U.S. These Individual’s Are Old Enough To Partake In Event’s That Require A Committment That May Be Detrimental To Their Own Health Speak’s To The Federal Government’s Committment In Empowering These Individual’s With Responsibilities.

Yeah Volunteer But Dont Think Of Excerting Your God Given Right's In American NYC.

Yeah Volunteer But Dont Think Of Excercising Your God Given Right’s In America, NYC.

Again As A Matter Of Point How Can You Tax Without Representation And Ignore The Fact, That Any Individual That Work’s, Pay’s Federal, State And City Taxes Can Be Denied The Right To Purchase Tobacco Product’s If Not Under The Age Of 21?

Yet Here  Once Again We Have These Selfish People Proposing And Presuming That Someone Under The Age Of 21 Cannot Make Life Changing Choices And That, The Government Knows Whats Best For Them, While At The Same Time Saying To These Very Same Individual’s That They Are Old Enough To Give Their Life For The City, State And Federal Government.

At What Point Do The Resident’s  Of NYC And NY State Say Enough Is Enough, And Enough Of This Baby Sitting Corrupt Infused Government.

That Mrs. Quinn Loves A Vagina Is Her Preference, I Myself have Had A Few Vagina’s In My Hayday……Mean’s Nothing, But To Use Her Status As An Out And Open Homosexual To Gain Voter’s That Are In The Life Is Appalling, And That Making Proposal’s Without General Consent Using Only The Approval Of Other Agencies Is Incredulous To Say The Least.

I Marveled At The Countless Homosexual’s That Volunteer For Her Campaign, Only As A Way To Be Seen, We Gay’s Do That Often, Often Occasionally Showing Off Our Vogueness, Our Face’, In Fact Only Showing Our Asses…To The Merriment Of The Many Like Myself When I Attended The Mayoral Forum At Baruch College.

Of Course The News Came Out That The Speaker Has A Whole Secret Department That Cost The Tax Payer Over A Million Dollar’s Within City Hall That Churn’s Out Political Propaganda To Benefit  Her Public Persona Under The Cover Of Constituent Services.

Tell The Homeless Youth That Her “Fangness” Will Deny Them Their Cigarette’s And We Will See These People, 18 Year Old’s Mind You, Turn Like If They Were On A Runway At Fashion Week. Many Only Volunteering For Her Because They Lack What She Passes Off As One Grande Vagina…They Have VAGINA Envy. Oh Well…….

While She Is Called A Democrat, That Is Obvious In Name Only As Far As Her Record Is Concerned And  That She Would Deny American’s Of Legal Military Age The Right To Purchase Product’s That They Choose, Regardless Of Studies That May Or May Not Be Accurate Is Anathema To The Democratic Process As Smacks Of Bloomberic Nannyism, A Condition Brought On By One Being Inferior In Height Or Status.

That 12, 13, 14 And 15 Year Old’s Are Being Infected By All Sort’s Of Infectious Sexual Diseases Leading To Death While Her Concern In This Election Year Is To Follow Suit With Her Mentor On Their Personal War On Tobacco And This Dictator Bloomberg And His Policies That Circumvent The Whole City Council And The Rules Speak’s To Her Ignorance Of Our Knowledge Of The System.

She Has Used The Tobacco Issue Only To Make Her Impression On The Voter, While Her Homeless Policy Has Lead To Almost 50,000 Families Living In Squalor, On The Street’s, In Unsecure Condition’s And Questioning Their Very Existence.

That Those According To The Bloomberg Administration Will Graduate This Year 2013 And Become ELIGIBLE To Vote But Not Be Able To Purchase Tobacco Product’s Is Anathema, Contrary To Any Known Or Practiced Political Stratgedy, No Thought By Her Homosexual Operative’s On What Count’s Or Is really Important To Our Emerging Youth…..The Right To Purchase, Be Respected As A Tax Payer, The Right To FREE Choice Has Absolutely Eluded Their Multi Colored Blind Ambition’s.

Yet This Is More Important That Living Secure In A Bed, Cooking A Meal At HOME, Showering In A Private Residence That WE All Call HOME.

Yeah I Have Witnessed The New Democratic Party Here In Brooklyn, Those So Called Progressive’s That Used Word’s Like Fuck Bill Thompson For Backing This Or That Candidate, And Fuck This And That….Many Of These So Called Progressive’s ARE Still In The Closet…..Never Actually Making The Move Forward Independent Of  A Party….Useless Fodder, That At The End Of The Day Will Get Paid But Never Actually Ever Progress, Like That One Term District Leader…WHAT A Freeken Joke…Then Kissing The New Brooklyn Democratic leader’s ASS…Yeah I Saw The Photo Op…What A Shtetl Gay Tramp. That Restlor…

Did You Think That I Would Stay Shut, While The New Democratic Party, The Gofer’s And Those That Would Ignore Corrupt Legislation And Legislator’s Who Submit Proposal’s That Interfere With Due Process, And That Our Basic Right’s As Tax Payer’s Are Offered On What I Consider “The Slave Market Back In Sharecropper Day’s”….Buy Us…Sell Us At Whim And Will…….I Have My Ball’s And My Will……F**k YOU!

Imaginary Sweatshop’s In A Press.

So What Harm Could A Little White Lie Cause…….After All A Little White Lie Is Only Effectively Believed Only When It Is Repeated Often Until It Becomes A Natural Part Of A Person’s Persona.  That’s What John Liu The Current NYC Comptroller And Candidate For The NYC’s Highest Office, NYC Mayor Believe’s And Has Defended Today. 

City Controller John Liu officially kicked off his mayoral bid Sunday by touting that he worked in a sweatshop as a child – a biographical claim the Daily News debunked years ago.  Speaking to supporters from the steps of City Hall, Liu pitched as cherished fact his childhood work alongside his mother in a sweatshop — but his parents said during the Democrat’s 2009 campaign for controller that their son’s version of history was incorrect.  Upon Hearing This I Recalled With Much Amusement The Old Abbott And Costello Routine:

BUD: Didn’t I see you at the race track yesterday?
LOU: Yeah, I was there. I like to bet on the nags.
BUD (grabs him): Don’t talk like that about horses! Do you realize that I have one of the greatest mudders in the country?
LOU: What has your mother got to do with horses?
BUD: My mudder is a horse.
LOU: What? I will admit there’s a resemblance.
BUD: Now stop that!
LOU: Is your mudder really a horse?
BUD: Of course. My mudder won the first race at Hialeah yesterday.
LOU: You oughta be ashamed of yourself, putting your mudder in a horse race.

See Here For The Rest:

While This Newly Refreshed Controversy Play’s Out In The Public’s Eye, Let Us Really Understand Who John Liu Really Is And What He believe’s.

I Had The Privilege In 2009 To Volunteer On The Former NYC Comptroller’s Bill Thompson’s Campaign For Mayor Where I First Met John Liu During One Of My Many (GOTV) Get Out The Vote Assignment’s, Where I Was To Place Campaign Literature To A Local Political Club’s Endorsement Of Bill Thompson For Mayor.

I First Met John Liu In The Lobby Of This Hotel Where The Meeting Was Being Held In One Of Their Office Suite’s. Naturally I Was Ignored And Considered A Nobody By Mr. Liu And Seeing That He Was Then A Candidate For NYC Comptroller Meant That He Posed No Competition To Bill Thompson’s Candidacy For Mayor Of NYC.

Happy Liu

Much Later In Bill Thompson’s Campaign I Realized That Bill Supported John Liu’s Campaign For NYC Comptroller And Bill De Blasio For NYC Public Advocate  And That Mutually There Would Be A (GOTV) For All Three Candidate’s, Bill Thompson, John Liu (Candidate For NYC Comptroller) And Bill De Blasio (Candidate For Public Advocate)  That I Was Assigned To Infuse Into My Volunteer Work.

I Quickly Read The Background’s Of  These Two New Addition’s To My Volunteer Workload, And Mentally I Had No Reservation’s Except For This John Liu Character….That Coming From His Not Wanting Conversation At The (GOTV) That I Described Earlier. I Listened To The Messages That John Liu And Bill De Blasio Touted As Their Idea’s And Disapproval’s They Held Against Mayor Bloomberg’s Past Two Term’s And Their Reason’s Why He Was Not Fit To Receive A Third Term All Of Which I Agreed With.

Little Did I Know That I Would Have A Rude Awakening And A Good Damb Lesson On Politic’s As Usual From People  That I Not Only Voted For, But Freely Gave My Time And Breath And Even Marched In Parade’s Repeating And Extolling Their Qualification’s For NYC Comptroller And Public Advocate.

NYC Candidate For Comptroller, John Liu.

Not Too Soon After Becoming NYC Comptroller I Became A Facebook Friend To John Liu Who Later Went On Facebook To Solicit Nationally For Candidates To Fill Position’s In The NYC Comptroller’s Office, Something That During His Campaign He Railed On Mayor Bloomberg,  For Doing The VerySame Thing For His Administration And Contract Deal’s.

Of Course I Answered This Status Update With A Comment Of My Own Challenging His Intelligence On This Request To Search From Outside NYC For Candidate’s To Fill Position’s In The NYC Comptroller’s Office And Questioning Him And Reminding Him That In NYC Their Are Over 8 Million People And Why He Did Not Think That He Could Find A Few Qualified Individual’s Out of This 8 Million To Fill These Position’s

Not Long After I Found That My Facebook Friend John Liu Had Deleted Me As A Friend, How Childish…..But The Story Is Not Over……

In June 2012,  The six 2013 New York City mayoral candidates appeared together on stage for the first time at a forum sponsored by City & State. The forum was part of a morning-long series of panels on MWBE issues in New York City, which also included opening remarks by Mayor Michael Bloomberg. There was a bit of disagreement over whether the next mayor should create the position of “chief diversity officer.”



“We don’t need a diversity officer to make diversity a priority,” Liu said. “We need a chief executive officer who will make diversity a priority.

Mr. John Liu Repeating Some Phantom Conversation With City Hall Folk’s States That The Folk’s At City Hall Have A Sheer Lack Of Diversity And Readily Admit It, But That’s Because We Only Look For Merit….Then Get’s Offended And States The Same. I Agree With My Many Friends That NYC Voter’s Need To Take Heed From His Past, As Well As From His Current Predicament In A Campaign Corruption Scandal.

The campaign treasurer for New York City Comptroller John Liu was arrested Tuesday in a widening investigation into Liu’s fundraising practices. Liu is planning to run for mayor of New York City in 2013.

Well Here Is A Link (With A Little Music):!/photo.php?v=426276334132759

Watch How An Official Like Comptroller John Liu, That Control’s Billion’s Of NYC Taxpayer Fund’s, Lies To A General Public Of Educated Individual’s… — with John C. Liu at NYC.

The Parties Over Mr. Liu….I’ll Never Waste Another Vote On You Nor On Anyone Else Like You For That Matter, Ever Again….Your Welcome For The Free (GOTV) That You Never Thanked Me For, And Again Thanks for Deleting Me From Facebook, That Was The Best Thing That You Have Done, For Me That Is…

As For Me And My Future Vote For NYC Mayor, I Prefer Bill Thompson, Someone Who As Of Today Has Met Every Qualification To Get A Chance To Share His Vast Leadership Experience With And For The Resident’s Of NYC.

Media’s Racist Turn In A Press.

As I Open And Turn On My Computer To Read The Latest Headline’s  I Always Try To Understand Which Paper Or Which Writer Today’s Current Event’s Stories Emerges From, Of Course This Plus The Subject Of The Articles Paints And Form’s A Clear  Picture For The Day’s Mood.

By Now We Have All Read Them And Either Cast Them Aside Or Talked About Them.  These New Story Headlines Tend To Push Aside Yesterday’s Main Topic’s, Issues And On Most Occasion’s National Concern.

Through This Manner I Paint And Form My Own Views On How Much Weight To Ply On Any Given Story.

That Gun Control And The Fiscal Cliff Agenda Are the Current HOT Topic Of The Day On A National Scale, Homelessness, Poverty, Death By COP, Racism, Hate, And The Fact That One Month Later, Affected Homes From Hurricane Sandy Are Still Without Power, Heat And Hot Water Speak’s To The Nature Of That Great Beast, The News Media

This NY Post Article Placed On The NY Post’s Online Electronic Newspaper Paper Jumped Right Out At Me, Mainly That It Was At The Top, The Very First Story My Eyes Beheld To Form My Own Agenda For The Day, That Of  Tawana Brawley And Her Then Allegation’s Of Rape.

While We Never Saw from This Newspaper The 25 Year Anniversary Of   Borough Of Queens, President Donald Manes (Who Was Embroiled In The Infamous NYC Parking Violation’s Bureau Scandal Under The NYC Mayor, Ed Koch Administration And Who Committed Suicide In His Hospital Bed While The Scandal Was Unraveling.

Racism In Media

Racism In Media

I Applaud That The Reverend Al Sharpton Faced The Onslaught Of The Racist Media And Is With Us Today Still Making Change Happen, It Is Unfortunate That Donald Manes Is Not.  Who Know’s How Far The Parking Violation Bureau Scandal Would Have Went And How Many Of Today’s Public Leader’s Would Have Been Affected Had He Lived And Not Taken The 5th (Literally) Violating Countless Biblical Percept’s And Public Trust…

That Federal Legislation Has Stalled And Relief Not Fully Delivered  En masse , Because Some Politician’s Have Decided  To Add Funds For Projects On The West Coast Even Though The Hurricane Disaster Was On The East Coast Some 1,000 Plus Miles From The Affected Area’s…Go Figure The Greed And Gall Of These Not So Few Opportunist’s., Many Beneficiaries Of The Handy Work Of Our Media Today.

That The Current Administration Lead By Mayor Michael Bloomberg Has Jumped On The Issue Of Gun Control In Such A Manner That Even His Own Supporter’s Were Taken Aback On How He Can Confuse Illegal Gun Control With the Tragedy In Connecticut, Where Legally Obtained Firearm’s Were Used Show’s The Bias Of The Media. 

His Need To Have The Last Word Is Not Suprising When They Paint Him In A Favorable Manner And The Media Eat’s it Up Like The Now Defunct Twinkies…Yet His Debacles Like Citytime, The Death’s of Citizen’s During The Blizzard Of  2011 Fumble, And Many Other Articles That Cast A Truer More Unfavorable Picture Of His Administration Are Not Remembered Nor Do They Resurface. I Have Enumerated Some, Had They All Been Named, One Could Write A Book.


It Left A Sour Taste To Witness The Manner And Depth The NY Post And Several Other Media Outlet’s Have Downgraded Their Priorities In What To Write About, In Which Way To Post These Articles And What Weight To Give Them.

We Normally Open Our Mailboxes And Discard The Usual Junk Mail Glancing Casually Over Them For A Second And Forever Discarding Into The Trash And Our Memories.

I Glanced At These Two Pieces Of  Junk Mail 26 Year’s Ago And Discarded Them,  But Then 25 Year’s Later We Receive The Same Junk Mail.

This is Was Today’s Junk Mail In Today’s New York Post. Thank You New York Post For making My Brain Foggy With Your Clutter!

He Came To Heal In A Press!

Michael Bloomberg


The List Is So Huge That One Writer Alone Would Have To Use Several Blog’s To Enumerate The Failure’s Of This Boston Transplant And His Connecticut Educated Scheming Sidekick, Slushfund Chris Quinn. An Invader Maximus, A Blemish In The History Of The Office Of Mayor That As History Will Bear Out, Have Made  Even The Annal’s Of The Historic Tales Of Tammany Hall BLUSH!

In 2008, Quinn backed Mayor Bloomberg on a controversial bill that overturned voter-approved term limits and allowed for the mayor, city Council Members (including her), and borough presidents to run for third terms, reversing the results of two successive public referenda.[18] The Public Advocate and Comptroller both denounced this move; neither sought a third term. In June 2009, the City Council passed a budget that imposed a 40% budget cut on the Public Advocate’s Office.[19] No other city agency had its budget cut more than 6%.[citation needed]

The Corruption, Mismanagement Of City, State And Federal Tax Payer Fund’s Is Staggering To Leave One With No Place To Hide Their Dropped Jaw’s At The Knowledge Of This 12 Year Fiasco.

The Puppet‘s Use In This Game Of Bait And Switch Is Notorious, With Local Historic Writer’s Having A Field Day In It’s Retelling Of How Mayor Bloomberg, And His Sidekick Another Notorious Hatcher Of Scheme’s Christine Quinn‘s Defacto Administrative Takeover Of The NYC Charter’s Rules, Regulation‘s And By-Law‘s….

Yes It Will Take Me Month’s To Enumerate The Failure Of The Voter’s, The Cities Agencies, The State Agencies And The Court’s On How Could One Effeminate Man And One Lesbian Could So Hypnotize A Society As A Collective, While Avoiding City Administrative And Criminal Charges.

I Will Attempt To Enumerate Several Instances Of Behavior So Egregious As To Be Borderline Criminal In It’s Scale…One Such Example Is This Story In Today’s New York Time’s A Local Paper That Opine’s And Rallies To The Aide Of This Oppressor’s Hitleristic Frame Of Mind.

At Loft Conversion, City ‘Stop Work’ Order Failed to Stop It for Long

The building sits in the Greenpoint-Williamsburg Industrial Business Zone, created by the Bloomberg administration in 2005 to Preserve Manufacturing jobs. The designation seeks to prevent the conversion of industrial buildings for Postindustrial purposes. Residences were not approved, though hotels, nightclubs and a few other uses were. The fashionable Wythe Hotel is one such exception.

Previous owners of 239 Banker applied to create a hotel but built lofts instead — not only exploiting a loophole in the zoning rules, in local planners’ view, but also affronting the spirit of the rezoning.

“It’s not crime and disinvestment that’s the enemy of the working-class jobs here anymore,” said Leah Archibald, the director of the East Williamsburg Valley Industrial Development Corporation, a nonprofit entity that administers the Industrial Business Zone. “It’s gentrification that’s become the enemy.”

Yet after only a few months, construction restarted. This summer, the building began filling once again, advertised on Craigslist under varying names, like “the Sweater Factory Lofts” or “the Rustic House,” for $2,800 to $3,800 a month.

And the violations piled up. The building has been cited for, among other infractions, working without a permit, lacking the necessary certificate of occupancy and violating a stop work order.

The building manager, who would give his name only as Reuven, said most violations were the responsibility of the previous owners. He said he was speaking on behalf of a company called North Side Lofts LLC, which took over in October. (The Web site of the city’s Finance Department lists different owners, but those people said they no longer owned the building.)

This Above Is Just An Example Dating Back To The 1980’s Followed By The Election Of Rudolph Guliani Who’s Only Claim To Fame And Contribution Prior To Being Elected Mayor Was To Prosecute Drug Dealer’s, Prostitution Rings And Organized Crime Syndicate’s.

Was This A Prelude To The Delusion Of The Requirements For Mayor, Could NYC Voter’s Have Elected An Educator, A Family Man Or Perhap’s A Social Worker.  Voter’s Were Given Choices And Decided That They Needed A Prosecutor As Mayor So As To Clean Up Times Square From It’s Adult Entertainment Grime As Well As The Street’s From It’s Prostitution Aura.

Poverty Level‘s Continued To Rise, People On Food Stamp’s And Welfare Rose, Indeed Things For The Poor Never Seemed Bleacker. And The Poor Never Knowing Anything Better Became Adjusted To Sustained Poverty. Indeed Crime Level’s And Homelessness Stood Stagnant Rising And Falling Unchecked, While The Public Service Sector Job’s Rose Especially In The Law Enforcement Portion Of The City’s Budget.

The Racism And Bigotry In The Public Sector Continued To Rise As More And More Of The White Population Received Work To The NYPD And NYPD, While The Number’s Of Non White’s Lowered Even Further.

It Was An Age Of Racism Capped Off By Crown Height’s Riot’s And Violence In Brooklyn’s Neighborhood’s.  The Crack Epidemic And the Ignorance Of The Ignorance Of The Mostly All White State Legislator’s In Albany Led To The Experiment Named “The Rockefeller Law’s” That Led To Thousand’s Of Arrest’s, Indictment’s And Incarceration’s (Of What We Now Know To Be The Victim’s Of Social Inequality And Racism). 

This Filled The Penal Institution’s To Full Capacity And In Many Cases Led To The Double Bunk Fiasco, Where Inmates Bed’s Were Placed In A Bunk Bed Style Configuration Making This The First Mass Use Of Air Right’s In A Human Form, Imagine The Law’s Granting The Incarcerated A Minimum Number Of Personal Space And Placing These Alloted Spaces On Top Of Each Other To Maximize Space. In Fact This Situation Threatened To Explode In Mass Riot’s In The Penal Institution Until This Concept Was Implemented Only To Be Eliminated By Court Order Year’s Later.

The Explosion Of The Development Of Newer Institution’s Boomed In Upstate New York, In Just About Every County There Was. Employment Sky Rocketed In These Area’s Where An Institution Was Erected, Yet Those Employed Were Local Resident’s And Tended To Be White, A Double Bonus For The Status Quo Of Racism And Discrimination.

Then Came 9-11 And The End Of The Giuliani Administration, Enter Bloomberg From Boston To Lead NYC Through One Of The Worst Times For Resident’s Lacking Food, Shelter, And Fund’s For Their Day To Day Existence.

While NYC And The Nation Grappled With The Aftermath Of The Attack’s Or Implementation of A New World Order Mayor Bloomberg’s Administration Took Advantage Of This Confusion And Insecurity To Bolster The NYPD Rank’s As Well As The Devastated FDNY Number’s, Still 90 Percent White….In Fact Lawsuit’s Were Filed And Won Against The Bloomberg Administration On The Racially Discriminatory Exam’s Given To Potential Candidates For The NYPD.

While The Developer’s Of Upper Income High Rises Grew And Waterfront Properties Were Being Set Aside For The Rich And Influential Population, The Homeless Steadily Grew To Overshadow And Over Burden Local Hispanic And African American  Communities Of The Poor And Disenfranchised During The Giuliani Administration’s Pogrom’s.

Developer’s Saw A Chance To Rebuild These Area’s Devastated By The Historic Black Out Of 1977, Only To Then Charge Exhorbinent Rent’s Not Affordable For Those Of The Latin And African American Communities Displaced By The Fire’s That Followed. These Area’s Witnessed A Major Influx Of Mostly White Gentrified’s Who Had The Prerequisite Disposable Income Required By These New Developer’s From Williamsburg Hasidic Community.  While These Special Developer’s Were Given Tax Break’s, Bank Loan’s. All Types Of Local Property Land Use Variances As An Incentive To Build Here, But With No Requirement That They Need To Offer Low Income Apartment’s As A Condition To Resident’s Dispossed By These Fire’s, It Was Mayor Bloomberg’s A Proponent Of Development And Wall Street’s Constant Cheerleader, That Began A Wholesale  “Fire Sale” Of The Area’s Housing The Poor And Disadvantaged.

All This While The Homeless Population Number’s Exploded To Number’s Never Before Seen Since The Great Depression. Indeed While The Mayor’s “Fire Sale” Continued The Services For The Poor Diminished, Cut Back, Sometimes Eliminated As In The Advantage Program.

Indeed The NY State Legislator’s Passed A Law A Bill that would have offered more rent relief to roughly 11,000 New Yorkers with H.I.V. or AIDS, Only To Have It Vetoed By Governor Patterson.  Let’s Not Forget That Mayor Bloomberg Wrote The Governor Opposing This Legislation Stating That 10 To 15  Million Will Devastate NYC’s Deficit, All The While The Mayor’s Pet Project’s And Financial Fiasco’s Like CITYTIME Continue To Devastate The Budget’s For Social Services, Education, Housing, Hospital’s, Transportation, And Infrastructure’s Such As Highway’s.

Meanwhile Back On Earth The Homeless, The Mentally Disabled, Low Income Earner’s And The Uneducated Mass’ Suffered Further When The Cycle Of “Charter School’s” Were Created….A Concept Unheard Of Beforehand….The Idea To Allow A Private Educational Institution To Utilize And Occupy Public Education Space Is Mind Boggling If Not Criminal To Say The Least.

The Blizzard Of 2011 And Now Hurricane Sandy Have Devastated The NYC Population Causing death’s, A Few Attributed To Mayor Bloomberg Incompetence As A Planner On Emergency Preperation’s…He Just Goes With The Flow.

How Much Of The Space’s Of The Poor, The Loss Of Public Education, The Loss Of Public Hospital’s, The Increase Of Fee’s For City Service’s And The Basic Tax Base Will Be Given Away By The End of This Mayor’s Tenure….Who Know’s…..

Jumaane You Know I Support You 110%

With All Due Respect To You CM William’s. I Am Reading The Comment’s On Your Facebook Post About This Article:  


CM Jumaane D. Williams, CM Ydanis Rodriguez at Zuccotti Park 1st. Anniversary.

First And Foremost What Is Needed Is The Education Of Voter’s On How To Properly Fill Out A Ballot Form.

Whle The B.O.E Is There To Serve The Voter’s, It Is The Responsility Of The Voter’s To Get Educated.

Having Worked For 15 Straight Hour’s Serving All Voter’s As A Poll Inspector/Scanner, My Poll Site Went Well. There Are Many Issue’s That Need To Be Addressed, But They Should Be Addressed Individually. We Had 2 Scanner’s And I Ran Both Of Them.

I Also Assisted In Processing Affidavit Ballot’s, Assisting In Filling Out The Ballot Form Questionaire On The Envelope Themselves, Making Sure That All Pertinent Question’s Are Anwered By The Voter Who Was Given An Affidavit Ballot For Whatever Reason They Were Given An Affidavit. This Was Done In My 2 Language’s.

I Also Filled Out Referal Slip’s So That Any Voter That Was Not Assigned Our Location As A Poll Site Would Get The Correct Poll Site. Please Remember That All Voter’s have An Opportunity To Cast A Ballot Only 3 Times, Then They Are Required To get A Court order To Cast A Ballot Thereafter, So I Make It My Job To Inform The Voter’s The Proper Manner In Which A Ballot Should Be Cast, i.e. No Circle, X Mark’s, Check mark‘s, But To Fill In The Oval Next To Their Perfered Candidate.

I Also Reminded The Voter That They Can Only Cast A Vote For Only 1 Candidate For Any Specific Office. I Cannot Begin To Tell You That Even With All My Concise And Detailed Information, Many Voter’s Had To Return To The Inspector Tables To Request Another Empty Ballot Form. It Is Time Consuming.

So Before Any Individual Decides To Opine On The Board Of Election’s As A Whole, Please Consider The Process That I Just Detailed, And Mutltiply That By The Number Of Poll Worker That Worked This Past November 6th. Yes There Are Many Flaw’s That Need To Be Addressed, But Blaming The B.O.E. As A Whole Is Not One Of Them.

I Did Not Add That Because Of One Voter, One Of The Two Scanner’s Incurrured A Paper Jam, Causing That Scanner To Be Put Out Of Commission For 1 Hour Until A Technician Arrived To Repair It.

In An Emergency, These Scanner’s Are Equipped To Accept Emergency Ballot’s, And The Board Of Election’s Has A Process For Emergency Ballot’s And We Are Trained In This Emergency Process Procedure.

Today On WNYC They Displayed A Hearing By Coucilmember Joel Rivera Who Chair’s The Oversight Committee That Oversee’s The Board Of Election’s.

At That Meeting They Voted To Re-Comfirm A B.O.E. Commissioner from The Queen’s B.O.E.

He Practically Blamed The Poll Worker For All The Ill’s That Have Occured To The B.O.E. And He Went As far As Too State That We Lack The Knowledge To Serve The Voter’s Well.

Of Course Having Taken Many Classes I Beg To Differ…To Blame 40,000 Plus Poll Worker’s Is Just Ignorant And Dangerous.

I Suggest That Instead Of Having A City Council Committee Meeting, Where Councilmembers Shower Praise On These Commissioner’s, That Perhap’s Ciy Council Member’s Should be Required To Actually Attend These Classes So As To Ask These Commissioner’s The Correct Question’s.

It Can’t Be Said Too many Times, EDUCATION Is The Key To Finding Solution’s…..How Can You As A Council Committe Ask The Correct Question’s If You Have Not The Slightest Clue Of The Actual Work That Poll Worker Are Required To Follow?

Give A Person A Fish To Feed Him/Her For The Day, But TEACH The Person To Fish And You Would Had Fed Them For Their Entire Lifetime!

What The Coomittee needed To Ask Or Suggest To The Commissioner’s Is The Following:

Leave The Voter Roll’s ALONE.

If A Person Register’s To Vote And They Do Not Excercise The Right To Vote In Every Election, Why Are They Placed In The Inactive Status And Their Names Removed From The Voter Roll’s.

I Had One Individual Who Has Not Voted In A Few Year’s, Literally Get A Letter From The B.O.E. To Be Allowed To Vote.

The Right To Freely Cast A Ballot SHOULD Not Be Like An Experience One Has At Our Local Dentist Or Emergency Room.

If And When One register’s To Vote, Then Their name Should Never Be Removed/Erased From The Roll’s Unless That Individual Passes Away.

The Only Time That That Data Needs To Be Changed Is When They Move Or When A Maiden Name Or Name Change Has Occured.

Again, Please Educate Yourselves, Education Is Free……..

I”m Hearing On 1010WINS News That More Female Staff Have Come Out To Denounce The Disgraced Chairman Of The Kings County Democratic Party…It Really Does Not Look Good For Vito Or For Sheldon Silver….

Latest Update:

August 29,2012

Vito Lopez

Brooklyn‘s longtime Democratic powerhouse, is resigningfrom his powerful leadership post but keeping his Assembly seat, he announced this afternoon.

Lopez, who was censured by the Assembly for allegedly sexually harassing staffers, denied the allegations in a statement but said the pressure has become too great for him to continue serving as Brooklyn Democratic Chairman.

“I will not be seeking the position of party chair,” he said. “The onslaught of character attacks has put enormous emotional pressures on my family and close friends. I cannot sit by and allow that to continue.”

The Assembly paid $103,000 in hush money to settle some of the claims against Lopez but sources say there were other complaints as well.

Hello Mr. Ramos, my name is Peter Kaplan and I am a political reporter from, looking to interview Charles Barron supporters for a piece I am working on, I noticed that you are a participant on his Facebook page. If you are available for an interview today either via telephone or e-mail, I’m very interested in speaking!

Thank you,

While I Support Barron 100% I Have No Daily Working Knowledge With Him. I Have Followed His Political Work Closely. I Did Attend The Campaign Kick Off For Jesus Gonzalez In Bushwick And Have A Quick Conversation With Him. I Have Voted For Him For Governor Of NY. I Really Listen And Research Politician’s Histories And Do Not Easily Accept Their Campaign Propoganda. I Think He Is The Firebrand Needed In Congress To Shake Things Up Over In D.C.I Do Not Believe That He Is Anti-Semetic But Like Myself Freely Rejects The AIPAC Ideal’s And Use Of The USA To Further A Zionist Agenda With Capital In Lives And Funds…..In Any Case I Am Willing To Have A Chat, But Don’t See How Much I Can Contribute To Your Piece.

I Do Not Give Out My Number Out, But In This Case I Will.

It Is 1-347——— And Please Feel Free To Call At Your Most Convenient Time.

Respectfully, Luis A. Ramos


I Received The Call And Mr. Kaplan Was Focused On What Mr. Barron Stated Many Years Ago, I Of Course Informed Mr. Kaplan That He Should Question Mr. Dov Hikind On His Visit To Israel To Buy Property That Belonged To The Palestinian People, And I Questioned Him On How Was It Possible For Mr. Hikind To Find Fault Of Mr. Barron When Mr. Barron Never Gave Material Aide To A Terrorist Organization Like Mr. Hikind Has Done, Whe He (Hikind) was a follower of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane’s Jewish Defense League, which has been identified as “a right wing terrorist group” by the FBI,[9] knew Rabbi Kahane very well, and is active in right-wing Jewish causes. And That In the summer of 2005, Hikind visited the settlements of Gush Katif to express his concern for the residents who were slated to be expelled from their homes. In the summer of 2006, along with a group of fellow legislators and community leaders, Hikind visited northern Israeli communities during the time of the Hezbollah rocket attacks on Israel. He and his group spent the time there distributing funds and material aid.



Mr. Kaplan Was Present During The Latino Endorsement Of Charles Barron For Congress Covered By NY1, On The Step’s Of City Hall Last Week, Of Course As My Friend And I Approached He Immediately Pulled Her To The Side To Interview Her….She Left Perturbed After This And Felt Confused And Dumb Founded At The Thought That Mr. Barron Was An Anti Semite…I Explained To Her His Aim…We Both Laughed, But I Have Passed This On To Mr. Barron To Be On The Look Out For This Propaganda Infiltrators Of The People’s Work.

The Following Are Comments Made To This Story Written By: Peter Walker Kaplan

Barron has devoted a significant portion of his activism to support for Mugabe, Qaddafi and Hamas. Now that he’s running for Congress, the former firebrand seems to be pulling his punches on those issues. I also wonder what he could mean when he says that “we should establish a Palestinian state”. Does he believe that the U.S. should act unilaterally to do this? The question may give him too much credit. He seems to care less about the finer (or even broader) points of foreign policy than he does about making boilerplate allegedly anti-imperialist statements of support for various dictators and against the U.S. and its allies.


Markus Rose · Bard College ·

i am unfamiliar with him as a non-New Yorker, but he’ll be a one-termer if he makes it to congress and doesn’t quash his rhetoric. someone in the CBC or perhaps Sharpton will tutor him on what happened to Earl Hilliard and Cynthia McKinney.

My Response:

Well To You Both I Am Familiar With The Honorable Mr. Barron. He Hail’s From A Place Called Brooklyn, Once A Part Of A Racist State That Has Discriminated Against The African-American Community And The Latino Community For Decades…..He Has Never Advocated To Take Someone’s Land, House, Apartment, By Proxy, Unlike What The Zionist Movement Called AIPAC. He Knows, Like We All Do That AIPAC Is Behind The Lines Here In The US Supporting And Giving Material Aide To The Terrorist State Of Israel….Please Discontinue Acting High And Mighty Like You Do Not Know Or Were Not Aware Of The Atrocities Committed By Israel. By Doing So You Yourselves Have Committed The Very Same Thing That The German’s Committed In The 40’s..Where Did That lead To…..You Act Educated So Please Let’s Not Banter With The Past That Serves No Service To Brooklyn’s Future Or That Of The security Not Of Israel But Of America…..It Is A New World, Not Thank God Led By People Of Your Intellect…….That Leads Us Into Follies Of destruction, And Poverty!!!!!

Yeah, Luis. You qualify to be a Charles Barron supporter.

Backyard & Basement Use In A Press

When In Doubt

Search It Out!

I Recently Had A Discussion With The Property Manager Of My Building Regarding Use Of The Backyard.


She Has Stated That She Does Not Want Me, Not The Landlord But She, To Use The Backyard And That It Was Not Part Of My Lease Amenities.


She Stated That She Would Put That In Writing.


I Countered That The Landlord Has On Several Occassion’s Complimented Me On The Upkeep And The Vegetable Garden That I Have Sown In The Outer Area’s Not Covered By Concrete, As It Was Intended For.


I Stated That No Matter What She States I Will Continue To Freely Use This Enclosed Area, Since My Back Window And That Of My Neighbor’s Window Is The Only Access Apart From The Basement Exit Door On The Ground.


I Have Always Had Access To This Area Prior To Her Company Purchasing The Property, As Well As The Basement Area.


As Noted By The Enclosed Court Hearing On The Matter, The Tenants Had Property Confiscated By The New Landlord, Thereby Acknowledging That The Area’s In Question Were Previously Used By The Tenant’s.


Here Is The Garden Area As Well As The Enclosed DHCR Administrative Court Hearing Minutes.

         The above-named petitioner-owners filed a timely petition for
         administrative review (PAR) of an order issued on April 23, 1993
         concerning the housing accommodations known as 382 12th Street,  
         Brooklyn, New York, various apartments, wherein the Rent
         Administrator determined the tenants’ complaint of a reduction of
         certain building-wide services.

         The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the record and
         has carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to the
         issues raised by the petition.            

         Three rent stabilized tenants commenced this proceeding by filing
         a complaint asserting that the current owners discontinued the
         tenants’ access to the basement for storage and of the backyard,
         permitted by the prior owner.

         The owners denied the allegations set forth in the complaint, and
         asserted that they were never services provided by the former
         owner, who was aged and infirm, and not able to prevent unauthor-
         ized use.  The owners also stated that neither of the services were
         registered by the then owner in the initial 1984 services registra-
         tion, nor provided for in the tenants’ leases.

         In response to a request for additional information, the tenants
         reiterated that they had always had access to the basement for
         storage and to the backyard for recreational and other uses.  The
         tenants also stated that the owners had removed and discarded the
         tenants’ property from the backyard.  Copies of the tenants’
         responses were mailed to the owner.  There is no record of a
         response from the owner.


         Thereafter, an inspection of the subject premises was conducted by
         the DHCR inspector who confirmed that the tenants did not have
         access to the storage facilities and backyard at the time of the

         The Rent Administrator ordered restoration of these services, and
         further, ordered a reduction of stabilization rents.

         In the appeal the owners reiterates that access to the basement
         storage space and to the backyard were never required services, and
         that such services were not registered nor authorized, and not set
         forth in the tenants’ leases.

         After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion
         that the petition should be denied.

         Pursuant to Section 2523.4 of the Rent Stabilization Code, DHCR is
         required to order a rent reduction, upon application by a tenant,
         where it is found that an owner has failed to maintain required

         The tenants asserted and the owners denied basement storage space
         and use of the backyard were services provided by the owners.  
         However, on appeal the owners confirmed that the tenants had been
         directed to remove their possessions from the basement and to cease
         use of the backyard .  The owners also stated on appeal that from
         1986 through 1988 the building was managed by a professional
         managing agent and thereafter by the executrix of the incapacitated
         prior owner until transfer of title.  If the services were not
         authorized initially, failure to take appropriate action when the
         facts became apparent to them constituted a waiver.  Accordingly,
         the owners, as successors in interest, remain obligated to continue
         these services.

         The owners are in error in raising the initial 1984 building regis-
         tration to establish that the basement storage space and use of the
         backyard were not contemplated as services.  Tenants can assert
         decreases of required or essential services at any time.  Whether
         or not the services were listed in the tenants’ leases is also not
         relevant.  Required or essential services are not confined to
         services set forth in the lease.  It is the actual services
         provided on the base date or thereafter, not lease provisions or
         registered services, that control.


         The one tenant’s request to withdraw the complaint cannot be con-
         sidered since the order was issued properly, and must therefore be

         New York City, the City Rent Control Law, and the Rent Stabiliza-
         tion Law and Code, it is

         ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied, and

This Story Is The BOMB, To Why The City Council Is At This Moment Attacking The VILLAGE VOICE’S AD,S On The Back Pages…Like When Was The Last Time You Heard A Pre Pubescent Teenager Complain About Them…..Ad’S…We learned last night that a federal judge has granted class certification to a lawsuit which claims the NYPD‘s quota policy is unconstitutional and results in summonses and stop and  Frisk‘s being done without probable cause. The lawsuit, which could turn into a fairly big problem for Mayor Bloomberg, relies heavily on tape recordings of police supervisors ordering officers to hit specific monthly summons numbers–all of which was first reported in the Village Voice‘s award winning “NYPD Tapes” series.
