Woman robber wearing Cat Mask attempts to give cats a bad name- She robbed Arche by Astor Place

http://www.nypost.com/video?vxSiteId=fe3e21a8-49f1-4cec-9ba5-cfe372fa6572&vxChannel=PostUsFeed&vxClipId=1458_980946&vxBitrate=700

Sexist misogynist The New York Post's term "sex pot"

This is a comment on The New York Post's use of the term sex pot to describe women.  The term sex pot by guys from the NYPost sounds  like a bunch of guys just lusting for women that would reject them unless they pay them for sexual favors --- came up with that term.

Sex pot -- means someone who likes sex?  Isn't that a good thing?  In theory shouldn't everyone be pro-sex but when it comes to females the NY Post male writers always have this negative misogynist double standard that not only is offensive but oozes with lust and rejection.

Mike Bloomberg above the law + is his camp paying someone to harass me -- aggravated harassment

Mike Bloomberg paid Haggerty out of his private account wiring him money.   As I understand it this is not legal.  

What else has Bloomberg done that we the people don't know about and rely on The New York Post or The New York Daily News to expose if they do at all?

Harassing someone on the computer is aggravated harassment.  Is Bloomberg or his campaign people paying someone to harass me -- actually aggravated harassment.

Suzannah B. Troy Amazon book review The Girl Who Played with Fire

The real title is "The Men Who Hate Women", not the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo so I call this book part 2 and it is excellent.  The Girl Who Played with Fire is even better than the 1st book although both are important because they address violence towards women, prejudice, corruption, and so many other important thought provoking issues.  It is sad that Larsson died without knowing his books are such a huge success.  It is also very disturbing that he did not make a will and his father and brother speak of his live-in love as his misogynist characters describe Lisbeth.  Read this book and experience an entertaining, disturbing read.  Lisbeth Sander is an unforgettable woman fictional character techno-equipped for the  21st century that many of us wish we had on our side; ditto: for Bloomkvist.  I feel like a combination of them both writing and YouTubing about corruption here in NYC.  My YouTube thoughts on movie and books.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQUYaqQ3EVY

Bloomberg and his mini-me Quinn save fire houses yeah right!



Jun 29, 2010
Bloomberg closed firehouses after 9-11 and he did this pushing population growth which is even more reckless! Don't trust Mike Bloomberg and his mini-me Christine Quinn, also known as Mike Bloomberg's puppet, back room deal that he would support her run if she did his dirty work pushing thru a 3rd term vote in front of corrupt city council being investigated for stealing tax payer money. The firehouses keep coming back to the chopping block and under Bloomberg. When it comes to cuts FDNY and NYPD are first under Bloomberg and Quinn who allowed the NYPD starting salary to be lowered! Starting NYPD officers probably were earning less than a bloomberg receptionist.

St. Vincent's protest posters removed, someone write, This hospital Saved Our Lives!!!

Why do I think Mike Bloomberg and his mini me Christine Quinn had all the posters taken down because it isn't pretty to hear the shouts, screams and cries of the community demanding a hospital.  All the thanks to the staff are now gone.

Does this signal Bloomberg and Quinn getting ready to make sure we do not have a hospital because they doing some deal with real estate buddies of Bloomberg?

Larry Roland read his poem dedicated to African American jazz greats, known and unknown.  Larry Roland told me when I interviewed him after the gig that "Jazz", America's Art form was kicked off by slaves.  Larry told me his concerns for jazz greats known and unknown some in homes, forgotten, with no health insurance.  He expressed a real feeling for Giuseppi Logan.  He told me jazz greats known and unknown are dying and their spirits come down...Dying quietly.

Con Ed makes the call use less energy

How sad, Con Ed is actually calling customers to use less energy but it is easy to see how energy is being massively wasted almost like a very slow mo oil spill in the East River but it doesn't count until it hits us in the face in away we can't ignore.

I do resent the fact in my opinion Con Ed like many commissioners needed to say to Mike Bloomberg and his socialite mega millionaire city planner Amanda the people's Burden -- their tsunami of development was too rapid and reckless and they had to slow down and put the safety of the people and infrastructure concerns including a safe smart expansion and they did not.

I believe our Con Ed bills have gone up to pay for infrastructure expansion.

It is so out of control that Con Ed is constantly hiring outside contractors. Con Ed was not going to say no to Mike Bloomberg and we are paying in many ways.

NYU evil real estate magnate Venture Capitalist

NYU is branching out from being a community crushing real estate magnate to venture capitalism!  Crain's  reports NYU is launching their own venture capital fund

Dear Blog Readers:  NYU's president is John Sexton.  He ran down to City Hall to testify Mike Bloomberg must have a third term.  Let me translated John Sexton' who is paid 1.8 million a year plus real estate and other perks courtesy of NYU.  NYU has big financial deals and real estate investments -- huge greedy goals that good friend Mike Bloomberg and socialite mega millionaire Amanda the people's Burden will aid and abet and a mayor and a real city planner -- that actually cares about the people would have said "NO!".  No is a word that NYU can't seem to understand when the community says no more mega dorms, no more supersizing our neighborhoods, no to supersizing.


I posted this comment on Crain's website and see my YouTube on a letter I wrote President Obama asking the President of the United States of America to help protect our community from NYU and helping us to get community outreach resource centers in every mega dorm where NYU and universities copying NYU's real estate greed use the term, "community facility" to exclude the communities.

By the way I continue to ask if NYU's president, John Sexton can even vote here in NYC?  Sexton supported Mike Bloomberg flushing democracy down the toilet by denying us, the people a referendum so Mike could buy, steal, win a third term -- nice example for NYU students.

Parents of NYU students, visit 120 East 12th Street and see the facade of St. Ann's Church from 1847.   St. Ann's survived everything all these years except NYU's need and greed to build yet another mega dorm.

Here is the comment:

Good to know NYU, the evil empire, posing as higher education so NYU can buy up and displace as many people and small businesses as possible is expanding their endeavors.  Karma served NYU by hiring someone who was suckered by Bernie Madoff.  NYU could care less about the communities where they occupy and gobble up prime real estate.  NYU only has one focus "greed" and being a big business that uses "higher ed" as a tax shelter for "higher greed".

Gas leak infrastructure mess Tompkins East Village LES on going disaster NYC





See my YouTube from this morning that shows all the Con Ed trucks, DEP vehicles where it looked like a bomb dropped by the North West entrance of Tompkins Square Park which was closed off by the Parks Dept. for safety.

I wrote Dollar Bill Dan Doctoroff before the steam pipe explosion by Grand Central and alerted him to William Yardley's piece in The New York Times as well as my letter in AM New York the month before Yardley's piece concerned for infrastructure and safety.

I was told by DEP it was a water main break but in actuality a source told me it was a gas leak and the FDNY responded first.

Watch the YouTube to get more of a visual of how much of the street they are tearing up and for those unfamiliar with the area DOT is getting ready to pave 2nd and 1st Avenue but it will be a short term mess in my opinion because we have had too many infrastructure breaks and I don't think they root problems have been addressed so I believe the "new" streets will be looking like this one Sunday morning.


I have a YouTube documentary series plus NY1's coverage of a water main break on 2nd Avenue and 7th Street from 3 years ago and part of the intersection keeps reopening.


I am going to be repetitive because I am tired and I want your attention.


This morning the FDNY responded and I am told it was a gas leak. A DEP guy told me it was a water main break but I heard it was a gas leak. What ever it is it looks like a bomb dropped and this is Mike Bloomberg's streets of New York ever since he pushed a reckless, stupid, greed driven development to help his rich buddies and the construction industry but at the expense of the people of New York in way too many way.

We need more press coverage on this.  We need the press to make city gov tell us how many infrastructure breaks we have had since Bloomberg came to office in each section of NYC and we need to examine how we can stop what feels like another Bloomberg Titanic problem and finally put the safety of New Yorkers first.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0oiUtXoG5c

Yes this is the YouTube from this morning in case you missed it.

I don't know what else to do except hire a hot air ballon that says "Safety First!" stop the reckless tsunami of development mayor Bloomberg and for once put the people first.  Enough is enough!

Mike Bloomberg decided that the commissioner of DOB did not have to have an architectural degree or an engineering degree. Mike and the city have been sued on this issue and lost the first round. I am assuming the judge is a friend of rich developers and blind to how many deaths and injuries suffered by this Bloomberg's reckless tsunami of development.

As told to me BP over ridded their engineers advice and I get the vibe this was the same here in NYC.

More on that later.  I have heard some news and I think news reporters will be reporting more on this soon.

The East Village, Lower East Side looks like a bomb dropped and Cooper Union next zone buster has been put on hold for 2 years while the area around the building where I filmed a YouTube voicing my concerns for the safety of the community looks like bombs have dropped and Con Ed is also a main stay there.

The tsunami of reckless development was as stupid and greedy as what brought the implosion of Wall Street on and the streets are in the worse shape they have been in years.  DOT repaving them appears to be a wasteful band-aid because the infrastructure problems have not been addressed and as the old infrastructure problems keep busting open, Mike is pushing more infrastructure expansion but all of this -- old and new expansion should have been addressed city wide before the reckless development.

Go to YouTube and search under Suzannahartist and street conditions,  Suzannahartist infrastructure and you will also find my playlist on Mike Bloomberg' streets of NY including a fire truck on the upper west side, the front wheel falls in to a hole in the street that was from infrastructure problem.  I tried to supply you with links but who knows because there is so much and I am one person.  I even show you the subway station at Union Square with water on the ground from a pipe leaking with gauze around the pipe like a broken limb.

Mike and his developer friends only cared about their reckless development and not that the city was in bad shape and not able to absorb the development including Columbia University, NYU and Cooper Union as well as hotel and condo developers all busting through zoning and wanted the people displaced and cared nothing about our safety and the conditions of our streets, way lay beneath them and a rotted, dilapidated subway system where the stations are rotted and leaking and there are so many rats I call it the MTA Rat Circus for New Yorkers standing waiting for trains.

Welcome to king Mike's "new" hideous New York.

Marlene sad news homeless, aging, vicious cycles

I spoke with Marlene today.  She hugged me.  She was wearing shorts with a stain on them.  Her breath smelled of alcohol.  I asked her if she was drinking and she said last night.

I can't express what bad news this is that she is back at the park, drinking.

I asked her if she could contact her family for help.  I gathered she could call in an emergency.

I feel badly for her family.  I know from dealing with Jim Mosaic Man Power that helping means he will strike out at you -- if not physically most certainly verbally as well as lying and being very destructive.  I can only guess Jim treated his family the way he treated me.

Homelessness, aging, and other issues like drinking etc. which can add to vicious cycles that need breaking and treatment.

Aging they are just getting worse.

I agreed to buy her breakfast but sadly the more we talked the more verbally violent she got threatening to punch me in the face.  Sober and lucid she is a good soul but drunk or coming off being drunk she is abusive and can get physical.   She deserves compassion not being demonized especially by ignorant racist people that seem very sick and photographing her topless when drunk out of her mind  or  other homeless men(?) having sex with her seem like more forms of abuse and exploitation of a homeless and mentally ill person struggling,  in my opinion.

You can't force someone to go in to rehab.  Today she would not even consider rehab.

You can't force someone to take shelter or housing.   I know she has been offered all of the above.

The city has failed her as well and there is nothing that can be done.

I will call Beth Israel.  I got the names of Phoenix House and Day Top as well to call and see if they have ideas but you can't force her to take housing or shelter that she refuses and or medical care.

Note: 1:29 Sunday called and left a message with the social worker dept.  at Beth Isreal that works with homeless.

I left a detailed message and they  should call me back this week.


She needs rehab and she needs to stay away from the park and deep down she knows this because in sober moments she has said this herself.

She just seems to be getting worse.

Karl was back visiting today.  I didn't get a chance to say hello but he has shelter now and has cut down on drinking although sadly he still does drink.



I called 311 for help but all they can do is put me through to a group that would drive by and offer her shelter.  She would most likely say no so their seemed like little point.

The sad part is it is not the NYPD's job but the city of New York and perhaps the USA have failed the homeless people that most especially are mentally ill and also addicted.  There has to be a better way to help people but there are no easy answers and it is not black and white.  I know the 9th has found housing and she refused it.

Any amazing activist with Cooper Square got Jim Power housing but he too refused it.

No easy answers just sad and angry causalities that don't want help and sooner or in some cases much later it means prison, hospital or psych ward.

I spoke to my MD about Marlene and Jim and she said they need trained professionals.  Well where are they?

Mixed Martial Arts could help NY Budgetary Crisis by Alexia Krause

http://newyorkfocus.blogspot.com/2010/06/mixed-martial-arts-could-save-ny-state.html


Alexia Krause wrote me and Zennie and I agreed to post her piece on New York Focus Blog.  I posted it on my central blog as well.

You can read Alexia's piece here as well!


Mixed Martial Arts May be the Key to Saving the New York State Budget
By Alexia Krause
With the New York state deficit hitting $8 billion, steps need to be taken in order to right the ship that is the state's budget. Recently New York Gov. David Paterson stated that the projected deficit for the upcoming fiscal year has grown by an additional $750 million. There's no doubting that the Empire State is in dire straits trying to fix their deficit.  It is extremely difficult trying to balance a state budget at a time when the country as a whole is going through some of its most difficult economic hurdles in recent history. This forces us to take a fresh look at which programs will continue to receive funding. As a result, the state has been forced to cut, reject, and outright shut down many state programs and projects in order to make some type of movement out of the red and back into the black. Many of these budget cuts (like closing down state parks and cutting funding to public schools) were rampant and have cast an unfavorable light on politicians in Albany in the eyes of many New Yorkers. However, something must be done in order to fight the ailing state economy. As coincidence has it, a good fight might just be the answer to the budget problems. 
On June 16th, the New York State Senate passed a bill to legalize MMA in the state in an effort to help amend the state's financial problems. Opening the floodgates for MMA in New York would be more of a benefit to the state than it would to the MMA Industry. For years, promoters have happily held venues in nearby New Jersey. Mixed martial arts competitions like UFC, among others, have been banned in the state because many lawmakers felt it was too brutal of a sport (even though other legal sports like football and hockey can be just as- if not more- brutal). With the passing of this new bill, fans will finally be able to support their home state and local venues. MMA events would potentially have access to one of the most active metropolises in the world- New York City. There are dozens of great venues surrounding the state who have been capitalizing on this opportunity for years. At the UFC's most recent event held in New Jersey, there were more New York residents in attendance than NJ natives. Fortunately state legislators have finally come to the realization that legalizing MMA will open access to a new revenue stream that it gravely needs. 
By welcoming MMA in the state, as much as $11 million in economic activity could be generated for each event held. This activity ranges from salaries paid to venue workers, to an increased interest in martial arts training academies and dojos, and to tourism dollars spent in the surrounding area. At every step of the way, tax revenue is generated. Governor Paterson expects over $2 million generated annually if the bill is passed. The MMA organization UFC (who would play a large role in scheduling events in the state) is broadcasted in over 170 countries, made $5.1 million in Pay-Per-View sales in 2007 alone, and averaged 30.6 million viewers in that same year. This is 3 years ago mind you; the figures projected for the next fiscal year are much higher. This type of outreach is bound to benefit the state and bring thousands to events, thus helping the economies of struggling New York state cities.
Holding events isn't the only way that this bill will help bring money to the state of New York. In fact, the broad reach of allowing MMA to be legalized is something that will affect participants in the sport from top to bottom. For example, people who run mixed martial training gyms and programs will see a huge revenue generating boost in enrollment that will give many the chance to train and compete in their home state. This bill may even have the effect of preventing violence instead of causing it (which opponents of the bill argue) because it will allow many kids to go someplace safe after school. Studies have shown that when at-risk children are trained by mentors in a disciplined sport such as MMA, they are less likely to become involved in criminal activities. This is one of the most important aspects of the bill from a human perspective, and one of the greatest reasons why this bill needs to be passed. 
Every once in a while, a sport can transcend its origins and become a true cultural phenomenon. This is what MMA could be for the state of New York and that is precisely why this bill needs to be passed. The New York budget is going through one of its worst economic times ever, but by legalizing MMA, it can help to fight back against the deficit and make a difference in the lives of millions of New Yorkers. 
Alexia is a lifelong fan of sports and fitness. Recently, she's been obsessed with MMA. As a result, she has joined forces with MMA Industries- purveyors of widely popular MMA shirts and gloves. Alexia has been writing about the latest developments in MMA training equipment for the past few years, and continues to bring you the latest news in the mixed martial arts world.

Vince McMahon Mixed Martial Arts Albany Doomsday by Suzannah B. Troy

Is Vince  McMahon going to welcome a new kind of fight club if Governor Paterson succeeds in passing a measure that would allow "mixed martial arts" here in NYC or will this cut in to his and Linda's mega-bucks cash cow, the WWE?   The accidental governor is trying to push "mixed martial arts" here in NY because New York State is in a budget catastrophe and it is correctly believed this form of fighting will make big bucks and raise money for the city and state.  The only people besides peace loving vegetarians who won't be welcoming mixed martial arts are the McMahon family and martial art purists perhaps?

Note:  I called Vince McMahon at the WWE's offices but it is Saturday and there is no way to leave a voice mail asking him for a comment for my blog posting.

I posted this comment on The New York Post website on the article, "Ultimate fight for every dollar".


Quick call Vince McMahon and ask him if he welcomes mix martial arts to NY if they accidental gov passes this.  Better yet let's send McMahon and his tv crew to Albany to film the clowns of Albany.  Maybe we could get the public to pay attention to the fact the people are being ...... you pick the verb.

This Moron and all the his Cronies in Albany have it ALL WRONG!!! 25% ACROSS THE BOARD CUTS, NO EXCEPTIONS!! IT IS TIME FOR CHANGE FROM POLITICS AS USUAL!!! Bring in Ultimate fighting is like putting a band-aid on some one who just lost their head!!!!!



For those who have not checked in recently the budget deficit is currently 9.2 billion dollars and the clowns of Albany have not yet balanced the budget.

The budget was supposed to be balanced April 1, 2010.    Monday is "doomsday part 2" and this will be the 2nd Monday this year where we find out if we will have a historical shut down by the clowns of Albany.  They avoided a humilating shut-down last time and again if they don't they plunge the State and City of NY in to a possible official depression and I am not talking an emotional state but an economic state of depression although some New Yorkers are already living that way....sad to say.



For more info on the clowns of Albany read "Gov's doomsday deadline".

From NY1 a report that leads us to believe Albany will not shut down tomorrow.

Hold on tight and stay tune...

Hamilton Fish Pool Pitt Street & Houston, circa 1930's
Harry retires the end of September and my goal is to share bits and pieces of Tompkins Square and NYC Parks Dept. history if possible!

More to come!!!!!!!

For instance: The inception of the Dog Run.


Monay Germain lead the battle to get the first dog run and it was in Tompkin Square Park! That is why the dog run at Tompkins is called 1st run.


Henry Stern, the famous quirky NYC parks commissioner would bring his dog Boomer to Tompkins Square Park to the 1st dog run ever for Boommer's birthday.


NYC Parks Commissioner Henry Stern with with the late Sandra Turner.  Sandra Turner created The East Village Conservatory.


Trevor and me.   I wrote NYC parks commissioner Benepe and I organized a petition to keep Trevor employed and it worked.  The parks dept. could not keep him on year around but they have continued to hire this hard worker when ever they can.

I, Suzannah B. Troy am part of Tompkins history to.  Not the riots but getting bathroom doors returned to the women's bathrooms.  They were removed because of drugs and prostitution.  I asked for doors to be returned but make them a bit smaller to discourage activity that did not involve the reason the toilets are there in the first place.

Harry designed a low cost way to try and make the soap dispensers tamper proof.
Thanks Harry!!!!!!!!!

Apple IPhone 4 Hell news from an Apple Lover by Suzannah B. Troy

I have bought every Iphone model since the first one.   I wrote Apple constantly telling them if I had a better quality camera with zoom I could have made the Giuseppi Logan documentary on my phone, hopefully the first to make a doc on their phone and show at Sundance.

When the 3GS came I had no problem picking up the new model but this time around it was Apple hell.

As far as I am concerned, the Apple Store that I had my IPhone reserved at, in my opinion  "stole my Iphone" and gave it to someone else.  The Apple manager claimed I was sent a notice that if I did not pick up the phone within 24 hours the phone would be given away.

We searched my mail and we could not find any such notice.

My last experience with the 3GS which gave me no clue nor did any Apple sales person that I might have to stand in line for many hours, perhaps even half a day.

If any sales person had told me that I would have to stand on line for hours, I would have said mail it to me when I reserved my IPhone.   I have had occasional problems finding emails, contact info, dates in my calendar but I can't tell if that is NYC's hectic pace, me or tech.

I did not have the new IPhone mailed to me because I read in The New York Post thieves were stealing IPads right in front of the Apple Store on the Upper West Side.  I thought if my IPhone gets stolen better it is stolen being delivered to the Apple Store than to me.

Big mistake.

Although the dynamo Steve Jobs has battled cancer when it came to picking up Iphones at stores in NYC it was only the young and fit,  for people that have time and stamina to stand on line.  Also people wealthy enough to pay people to stand on line and for celebrities as exposed by The New York Post including, Jason Bateman who was booed as Bateman past the reason Apple is a success, loyal customers.   Steve Jobs and Woz and many others are extremely rich -- thanks to  the loyal long term customers...like those that stood in line for enormous amounts of time that Bateman just breezed past.  Thank goodness for booing.

I have had 2 knee surgeries and I have other health issues that would make the line impossible.  I was stunned at the insensitivity by Apple  to people with handicaps and health issues but it seemed  Apple got carried away in the marketing and did not give a dam about their customers except for those willing and healthy enough to stand on line for hours and in NYC it was close to 90 degrees.

I love Apple and they radically changed my life and others I have helped like Giuseppi Logan for the better but this rates as the most awful Apple experience ever.

Everytime I walked up to a Apple customer service person and asked about the long lines and the wait -- it was their responsibility to warn me if you don't pick up your phone you reserved in 24 hours it will be given away.  I was never told that.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2ME0sWl8kM

I thank Apple computer in the YouTube above for helping me to help Giuseppi Logan reunite with his son 40 plus years later who thought his Dad was dead.   I believe my filming Giuseppi, using Imovie, Apple teacher Ben teaching me how to put my work on YouTube helped Giuseppi Logan to make his first record in 40 years and to give his fans who bought his records in the 1960's great joy that he was in fact alive, eager to compose more music and more...

Here is the video I found right away when I posted my first YouTube on Giuseppi Logan


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSb-JgMIeuA
I never imagined the little boy in this YouTube from a british film maker thought his father had died and I would reunite them 44? years ago....   My first YouTube of Giuseppi Logan playing Begin the Beguine and the clip on YouTube by the British film maker were written up in Signal to Noise by the publisher Peter Gershon in his powerful piece "Out from the Shadow".

I felt my YouTube series, Pete's powerful piece, Giuseppi's drive to continue to compose, play is about being so lost and yet so late in life finding some kind of dignity and redemption through the power of music and for me the power of Apple teaching me and opening up my world with their technology and education.

If I had the IPhone I got today and was filming with the phone 2 years ago I believe I would have had the first film made and edited on an Iphone.

With the new IPhone I can now do this and with the lessons I learned in Apple one on one.

Throwing out my Dell and buying an Apple MacBook was the best choice I made.  Wish I had had an Apple as a kid.  I can't imagine how much better my life would have been.

Buying this newest Iphone was an awful experience.  I would never reserve an Iphone and pick up at an Apple store ever again.   It was like age and health discrimination with no warnings.  It wasn't pretty to put it mildly and the communication on this and the fact APPLE WOULD GIVE AWAY YOUR PHONE if you didn't pick it up in 24 hours and I did not know this is just DISGUSTING.

It was a rotten apple experience but Apple is so good and their teaching and support is out of this world, excellent I am sticking with Apple.

I can only say this was the worst experience ever in my short love affair with Apple and the IPhone nightmares of calls dropping still lives.  I try to remind myself to hold the phone anywhere but on the sides at the bottom because it disrupts the antenna but telephone calls are dropping.

I was interested in buying the protective cover called a bumper but they were all sold out.

Another Apple hell note:  I was forced to sign another 2 year contract with AT&;T.  I deeply resent being forced to sign contracts for years with companies that are providing service that is not as good as let us say Verizon.  Verizon has 4G.  Let's do math...what is better, 3G or 4G?

I will be over 50 when my contract runs out.  I hope by that time Apple gets their act together and that means a better Iphone with no contracts and choices in carriers.

Apple got me a replacement phone for the one in my opinion they stole from me and gave to someone else since I was never aware of any notification sent to me if I did not endure standing in extremely long lines that my phone would be given away.

So far I am still having trouble accessing the internet in certain places in NYC with 3G and E which is short for Edge meaning the phone is worthless as a computer and Apple would say that is an AT&T problem but Apple makes me use AT&T.   Phone works as crappy as before in terms of phone calls dropping, actually worse than my 3GS getting my emails,   but the screen is some how crystal clear sharper and the camera video options way better.

Mel Gibson Yiddish for anti-semite low life accused of slapping his newest baby's mom

Adulterer, liar, anti-semite Mel Gibson is back in the news again and it is not for acting like a good Christian.   Surprise!  Surprised?  Not at all!

Mel Gibson is Yiddish for anti-semite, low life.

Adulterous partners in sin, Gibson and gal pal,  have both filed restraining orders against each other  but Gibson is rumored to be the violent one here.    He got her preggers and had a baby girl while married which doesn't make him a poster boy for being a good Christian but apparently makes him an expert on Christ.   The girlfriend and mom of their illegitimate daughter accuses him of beating her up badly according to TMZ.

TMZ at the forefront of Celebrity Dish and Disasters has the newest installment and that is Mel says she is lying.    Do you think Mel Gibson is an expert on lying?  I do.


I don't mention her name because she is of no interest to me except that she is a victim of alleged violence at the hands of a rich, Hollywood brute and America's most famous  anti-semite who has done his best to spread his hate and propaganda message using his movie.  I don't mention the name of the high tech propaganda flick embraced by Rome which is very telling as well. 


Let's see....I believe, poster boy for the Church, Mel Gibson still is legally married to his wife,  who he has 7  children with.  The wife married him when he had no money or fame.  Do you think what's her name would have given Mel, the construction worker, the time of day?  I don't think so.

What's her name  accuses him of domestic violence.    Mel being the charming, classy guy that he is is rumored to be playing hard ball with her not only fighting the charge but filing a restraining order against her!  Mel the anti-semite, drunk, adulterer has never been one to step up to the plate and take responsibility.

Why should he?  In America if you are rich, a celebrity, a politician, "connected", you don't have to plead guilty.  The well connected have a special plea just for them..."no contest" something like that...it is a plea designed for spoiled rotten people so they don't have to plead guilty when they are as guilty as sin!


That is the American justice system blinded by money, celebrity, etc.

Classy guy, Mel the anti-semite and maybe the Pope will plug him as "Father of the Year"!   I would be happy to fly to Rome and discuss  this with the Pope why I think it is deeply anti-semitic and very disturbing for the Church to embrace Mel Gibson and his anti-semitic film.  True or false?  The Pope has an email and I emailed him this piece.  True.

How a vile, low life like Mel Gibson even could make an anti-semitic film  so over the top in every way about Christ is so "Holly-woo-woo-Babylon"  and didn't  a woman die of a heart attack  watching it?  The film was clearly too much for her.  Is that considered murder?


I don't care about these creepy people but if you do Radar on Line has an exclusive interview with Mel's ex-girlfriend, mother of his newest child and she claims to be the victim here.  I do believe her.  I just don't think she is a nice person.

I care about the oil spill crisis and the massive destructive effects including the mass murder of sea life and long range results.  I can't help but feel greed and stupidity are to blame for devastating effects people can't understand yet but when I read about Hollywood's most famous drunken anti-semite I have to speak up.

Mel Gibson's father is a Holocaust denier.   I would like to sit down with the Pope and discuss Mel Gibson, adulterer, liar, cheater and also Holocaust deniers like Gibson's creepy, vile dad.


And what does the Pope and Rome do?  They take a film by such a low life,  Mel Gibson, a man that forged his fortune selling sex, violence and used Jesus who was Jewish and to make an an  anti-semitic film! 

Mel Gibson being exposed as an adulterer and liar....do you think that was the first time?  If he did hit his girlfriend, do you think that was the first time he roughed up a woman?  Gibson turning around and blaming the victim if true...do you think that was a first time?  He has  been exposed for adultery -- I am sure that was his first time (not.) 

Mel Gibson likes to tell people he has Jewish friends.  I am so glad I am not one of Mel Gibson's Jewish friends.  I am glad I am not married to him.  I don't date married men although I have met men that pass themselves off as single when they are not but it is hard for Hollywood celebrities who are married to pass themselves off as single so Mel's newest baby's mama knew she was dating a married man and she and Mel in theory knew how to use birth control.   I would not want to be in a car with drunk driving Mel Gibson who makes anti-semitic comments to a Los Angeles Police Officer and gets away with it.

Mel Gibson is disgusting...He is worse than disgusting.  I am sure the little girl he had out of wedlock is the newest Mel Gibson victim based on his vile behavior and if someone made a film right now exposing Mel Gibson including how uses money and religion Rome would not be eager to embrace the Mel Gibson further exposed now as anything but a good Christian.  Mel Gibson is not qualified to make a film on Christ and apparently he is an awful husband and boyfriend and father.

Mel Gibson is such a creep and yet he can easily find people willing to kiss his rotten to the core ego.

Mel Gibson is a big mess and he has as much chance of cleaning up his emotional oil spill as BP but I care about the oil spill off of the Gulf, all the deaths because of it and the long range disaster as well.  I don't know how this happened and ditto for Mel Gibson making a proganda film on Christ that Rome would back but Rome also let pedophiles abuse innocent children for way too long.

Richard Izquierdo Arroyo goes to jail and.....?

Below see link for The NY Post article and my comment but first read this comment not by me:

GAH
06/25/2010 6:58 PM
"
It was also revealed in court that both Arroyo and his gay partner hold political-patronage positions, with Arroyo serving as chief of staff to an unidentified state Assembly member, while his boyfriend works for an unidentified member of the city Council."

Hey NY Post: do a little research and tell us who these "unidentified" politicians are!

It is amazing he only got one year and the city council woman and assembly Arroyo's continue to avoid jail time all though so far 2 connected with them are going to jail.  City Council woman Arroyo voted to extend term limits and many believe she is guilty of similar actions as her nephew.  Didn't I read an editorial in another paper something like "All in the family" about this.  I don't understand why there are not more indictments.  Also can the tax payers see on NYC gov website how much we are paying for top white collar crime lawyers for Christine Quinn and her staff. Sally Goldenberger wrote about top law firms including one that Goldman Sachs uses so our Christine Quinn and staff use same law firm as GS but tax payers pay.  How about a follow up article on that.  Lucky most New Yorkers don't seem to know.

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/politically_connected_crook_gets_0aqunyQELYzJ7A2OSaaVqL

and or....don't care....

Hey Mike Bloomberg, thanks for denying us a referendum and putting the vote on term limits in front of a city council tainted with corruption so much so they have hired top defense attorneys that specialize in White Collar Crime.

FDNY fire houses saved for now but CAUTION

I just want to warn you -- Albany and corrupt politicos that for some reason avoid prosecution for stealing tax payer money from Albany to City Hall and even manage to get re-elected have been us in a hellish situation.

If Albany does not close the budget deficit which last time I checked was billions of dollars anytime soon, NY and NYC in particular are in for a hellish ride and maybe even an official depression and some New Yorkers are already in one and I not talking about the emotional kind....but the economic.

Sorry to be a kill joy but Mike Bloomberg had no right to push development and shut firehouses after Sept. 11.

We have so many infrastructure breaks from his reckless tsunami of development and his continued population push most especially with housing we need more fire houses open.

It is disgusting to close senior centers.  I have demanded every mega dorm that uses the term community facility yet exclude the communities give us community centers in the zone busting NYU, NY Law, Cooper Union, SVA, Cooper Union all gobbling up the East Village.   NYU mega dormed the East Village to death.

Don't start celebrating fire houses saved.

It may be another fake-out like Bloomberg claiming the budget was flush when it wasn't-- all smoke and mirrors with Bloomberg and when the going gets tough Bloomberg cuts the NYPD and FDNY usually right away.

The Albany ego-maniacs, clowns, thugs has still not resolved the big crisis and if they don't we will go from a continued decline in quality of life except for the rich -- we will go from bad to worse.

But on your safety belts and your hard hats.

What goes around comes around hope this guy gets prison justice

Columbia University NYU's evil twin Dark Day for democracy NYC yet again

It was yet another dark day for democracy here in NYC.  The big apple has seen so many dark days under Bloomberg, a mayor who denied the people of New York City a referendum so he could push threw a third term to crown himself king of New York also pushed a reckless tsunami of development and aided and abetted his developer friends.  Ditto for in my opinion the worst city planner in NYC's history, socialite mega-millionaire Amanda the people's Burden.

Amanda the people's Burden knows her reputation is shot so word on the street is she tells people she is doing Mike Bloomberg's bidding.   She and Mike may be one of the largest mass displacement of New Yorkers if you don't include the original real Natives, the American Indians.  King Mike, the nanny mayor,  has managed to piss them off too.  Mike Bloomberg was not smart enough to figure out if you displace people and than call them and ask them to vote for you either their telephone numbers are now disconnected and or they and their friends will hang up on your campaign staff.   Team Bloomberg found that out and also set a record for the most expensive -- $110 million campaign price tag for the most humiliating win.  Lucky for Teflon Mike The NY Post is not doing anymore investigative research on how Mike spent  109 million dollars and Cy Vance seems unwilling to give king Mike even a slap on the wrist for wiring money out of his personal account instead of the campaign account.   Mike Bloomerg also holds the purse strings to Cy Vance, the Manhattan DA's budget allotment.  Ouch.  Back to today's dark day and Columbia University doing everything but holding a gun to the peoples' heads to get them to move.   Who needs thugs when you have judges that side with ruthless developers and not the people?

Norman Siegel won a powerful first round against Columbia University but it was no surprise he lost round two since this was the very same set of judges that ruled in favor of eminent domain abuse in Brooklyn.

Read the Crain's article and decide for yourself.  My opinion is this is very sad  news.  A dark day for the people.   Watch my YouTube playlist and hear directly from people being abused by Columbia University's abuse of eminent domain.  http://www.youtube.com/my_playlists?p=8C438F43D7335594  Watch  interviews of people being evicted by Columbia University abusing eminent domain.  I also have an interview with Norman Siegel at a protest on the Columbia University campus where even students joined the protest and sad "Not in our name!"




This is all part of the mass displacement under Bloomberg.   

Seabrook still saying he is innocent, Mike Bloomberg's term limits deal ordeal

Denial is Mike's crack cocaine so he refuses to understand one huge stain on his legacy is flushing democracy down the toilet, denying us a referendum and placing the vote in front of city council tainted as were their votes with corruption.


Suzannah B. Troy
06/24/2010 3:21 PM
Seabrook, Stewart, Martinez, Arroyo all voted to extend term limits. So far Martinez is the only one honest enough to plead guilty and admit he was stealing tax payer money from the get go.




p.s  Sally Goldenberger did a killer expose on Christine Quinn and staff using large amounts of tax payer money to pay for top defense attorneys including the same firm Goldman Sachs uses Sullivan and Cromwell among others.  Is The New York Post ever going to follow up on this story?
Would the NY Post consider an AP for the iphone -- a running ticker on how much Christine Quinn and staff's defense attorneys are costing tax payers?

Gary Newton volunteer Sing for Hope piano in Tompkins

Gary Newton has the combo to the locks on the piano in Tompkins so that makes him a very important volunteer for the program "Sing for Hope" -- "Arts Activism in Action".

I attended a meeting last night downtown and past two more pianos in a small Tribeca park but no one was playing them. Some how I have a feeling if they were in Tompkins all the pianos would be in use.

YouTube Google creepy

Not new news but my newest YouTube has over a thousand hits but when I click on it, it only reads 304.  I notice the over all hits for my tubes seems low.

I have been trying to send movies from my phone and YouTube won't accept my password.

More and more Google is trying to force users to only sign in with gmail owned by Google.

There are more very uncool stories but I will write about that later....

stay tuned.

Tom Robbins, We care that Mike Bloomberg is a rip-off artist!!!!!!!!



Tom: Great piece.  One error, a lot of people care that Bloomberg is a crook.  My new YouTube series refer to him as Teflon Mike and the new pet name resonates for the little emperor of NYC.  I got damming info sent to me about Cy Vance's campaign irregularities and who hold the purse strings to the Manhattan DA's office but Mike Bloomberg?  Just like certain city council members have said they are afraid of retaliation by Mike's mini-me, Christine Quinn if they attempt to confront her and Bloomberg about things like CityTime, the tax payers Titanic.  In the info I was sent on Cy Vance, it stated something to the effect that Guma who worked on Cy Vance's campaign and Vance is paying Guma the debt he owes him -- this Guma is married to Maura Keaney who was working with Haggerty on Mike Bloomberg's campaign. This is the same Maura Keaney who was written up with Christine Quinn by Jim Dwyer http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/03/nyregion/03about.html ethic lapses and I think Christine Quinn and Maura Keaney are accused of intimidation of Union people....  What Mike Bloomberg did denying us a referendum was criminal and who encouraged him to run for a third term? Steve Rattner who now may be banned by the SEC for 3 years who had to pay 12 million in fines for his pay to play pension scandals.  Remember Rattner thought he was Teflon Steve as well and that at worst Quadrangle would take the fall so he moved Mike's 5 billion for charity out of Quadrangle and created a new firm who's name we do not know and now if he gets banned he won't be able to money manage Mike's 5 bill for charity.  Oh, John Sexton the president who is paid 1.8 million to be the real estate magnate emperor for NYU, the purple reign of terror ran down to city hall and testified Mike must have a third term.  How can NYU tear down and bust through zoning without Mike as king of New York?  Can John Sexton even vote in NYC?  Do NYU students and faculty even know or care that NYU spends big bucks to beat down community law suits and ditto for Cooper Union (NYU jr.).  We care Tim but what are suppose to do?  Ask Cuomo to be sheriff or have a revolution?  Any ideas?

NYer's agree our government from Albany and I will add City Hall stinks!

Activist sends forwards Housing Here and Now: Appellate Division affirmed Casado v. Markus


Subj: Appellate Division affirmed Casado v. Markus (the minimum rent RGB case)
 

Today the Appellate Division, First Department, upheld the decision of the NYS Supreme Court in Casado v. Markus.

The Supreme Court invalidated the “alternative minimum rent adjustments” that the NYC Rent Guidelines Board had imposed in 2008 and again in 2009.

In 2009, for example, the rent adjustments were for 3 and 6 percent. But for apartments renting for $1,000 or less and where the tenant had been in occupancy for six years or longer, the alternative minimums were $30 and $60. Thus a tenant paying $500 per month would pay a rent increase of 6 percent for a one-year renewal, instead of 3 percent.

These rent increases were struck down by the Supreme Court and the Appellate Division has now unanimously affirmed the Supreme Court decision.

The decision is attached.

Congratulations to Ellen Davidson of the Legal Aid Society and the other attorneys who worked on this lawsuit.

Earthquake Canada shakes NYC + Soceer + Taylor indicted by Suzannah B. Troy

Time for the NYC round-up live from New York!   The USA soccer team won!   There were loud screams of joy I witnessed and show you for a mili-second here in NYC.   If you felt your home shaking here in NYC and it wasn't from passionate love or a subway line running under your home than it must have been the 5.5 magnitude earthquake from Southern Ontario, Canada.

I think it was about 1986, I remember feeling slight tremors from an earthquake so it wouldn't be a first for New Yorkers.



On to sad bad news.  LT, Lawrence Taylor was indicted for having sexual intercourse and oral sex with a minor.  The New York Post wrote this, "Taylor, 51, a Hall of Famer with a drug-plagued past, was slapped with felony rape, misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child and other charges in the May 6 incident."
and this as well.

 Taylor's agent, Mark Lepselter, told The Post today, "The bottom line is, there was no surprise" from the indictment. "We weren't blind-sided."  


How ironic is that statement about being Blind-sided when Taylor is the crown jewel of the best selling book and film that won Sandra Bullock an Oscar and proved she was blind sided when it came to her cheating husband.  Ironic for Taylor because he could have ridden the wave of the success of The Blind Side which was pays tribute to him in the opening lines of the film but instead he road his way in to self destruction, yet again.


I feel most sorry for the young woman that was exploited and pray she achieves her dreams and or at least is safe among friends..




http://www.nypost.com/p/blogs/knickerbocker/nyers_agree_our_gov_stinks_YtkY2GEZcanpRG2x0IuHxK  The New York Post reports New Yorkers think government that is Albany and I will add City Hall STINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


On to happy news.  I have more footage of Giuseppi Logan who will be playing a gig at the 5C Cultural Center Sunday at 5:30.  GIuseppi composed and played sax on his two successful albums by ESP records in the 1960's before he self destructed and disappeared.  But I filmed him 2 years ago in Tompkins Square Park and he is no longer lost but on the road to redemption late in life.  He has a new album, his first since the 1960's and the album is well received.





























Giuseppi Logan is playing the piano in Tompkins Square Park. The piano is there as part of a program called "Arts Activism in Action."  Volunteer, Gary Newton unlocked the piano so Giuseppi Logan could play.  I am told GL played the bag pipes, flute, sax, clarinet and piano.







He told me he wished he had a piano in his home.







Right now we can't even get his phone up and working.  Hope to have that resolved soon.

Earthquake shakes up NYC

So mind blowing to me that there is this earthquake in Canada shaking NYC.

I remember maybe 1986 here in NYC feeling an earthquake shaking the building where I lived and I have a short story "Murderville in the East Village" and I have two possible endings and in one there is a massive infrastructure collapse and all these new hideous buildings that were built to fast on old NY's infrastructure collapse....

I wonder if the tremors of this earthquake will effect NYC's dilapidated infrastructure and "new" builds....?
hmmmmmm
