HERE WE GO AGAIN?

It's that time again, who should we vote for?
Sadly our choices seem to be limited to the very individuals who created the mess we are in today. The few who seem to show more promise, are the ones we are not aware of!

SOLUTION =
1- There needs to be a law with equal advertising for all candidates..
2- Those who are running should all get equal air & media time for us all to make a fair decision.

Let's be realistic, how can one complete with those who have so much money behind them? You know why these laws do not exist... it is because those with money create the laws! And until we speak out, we will vote in the same individuals who have been & will continue to control us. What is quite disturbing is, that we pay them so they can tell us what to do, (it's should be the other way around)!

One person who seems to show great promise is
Sal Ejaz have you heard of him, well if you havent, I encourage you to look into his plans for NYC Comptroller (the person who over sees how our tax dollars are being spent (in the existing case, hides millions of waste!).

For some more info on all the candidates, go to:

NYC Voter Guide
or Board of Elections.

MAKE A CHANGE! This is our city, if we don't vote wisely & speak out, nothing will ever change. Contact your NYC & State officials, go to NYC.gov call & email all of NYC agencies & officials until something is done, unfortunately once will never change anything in NYC, repeated calls, letters & emails will! It's up to us to make a change!
Our government is a government of the people, for the people, and by the people. Thus, if you do not challenge or hold the government accountable, you endorse it.

CONGESTION Pricing Plan!

Bloomberg's Congestion Pricing Plan was a very poor excuse to reduce the traffic in NYC. If the Mayor & city Council were serious about reducing the congestion & NYC pollution, they first need to implement & enforce 3 fundamental things:

1- End the Taxi double parking to pick up or drop off passengers & agressively enforce it with stiff fines, with each one being greater!

2- Make it mandantory for all who are working & blocking any streets (this includes all city agencies) to have signs posted (or someone directing traffic) many blocks in advance, warning drivers & providing alternate routes!

3- Fine any NYC agency vehicle, ie: traffic officer, police, ambulance, etc. who blocks any portion of a road unless it is a serious emergency & citizens should be allowed to make a 311 report & make certain they get fined!

These rules need to be implemented & agressively enforced throughout the tri-state area, (including our expressways), too often we see minor fender benders, or construction crews causing MILES OF ENDLESS TRAFFIC, wasting our time our fuel &creating major pollution, why is this still allowed, this needs to end! Now unless there is a serious injury, (or if the vehicle is inoperable), those who are creating major traffic need to be stiffly fined & each additional fine greater!

Oh yes, how can we forget how treacherous some of our NYC streets are & how inferior they are being repaired, (which also cause so much traffic & damage to our vehicles), Bloomberg, why don't you focus & end the the Millions DOT is wasting ripping up perfectly fine streets?

Let's get with the program Mr Bloomberg, these are very simple solutions to ease our congestion & reduce pollution, what seems to be the problem here, I'm quite certain you don't run your corporation in this blind manner?

DOT Corruption or Ignorance?

Many of us have witnessed city streets which are like war zones, massive pot holes, cave in's that can swallow a truck & the inevitable contractors who open up our streets to gain access & then leave our streets poorly finished! We wait years for roads to be repaired, some of us never live long enough to see repairs! Now to witness DOT ripping up a perfect street with not even one defect to repave it & leaving streets which are complete nightmares is either "corruption, or complete ignorance"? And who pays for it, we do, our TAX DOLLARS, through higher taxes, higher rents & list goes on & on! And the waste material created only adds to our overloaded landfills to further destroy our decaying environment!

MAKE A CHANGE! If you witness this, contact our NYC Comptroler & follow up. This is our city, if we don't speak out, nothing will ever change. In addition contact our NYC & State officials, go to NYC.gov call & email all of NYC agencies & officials until something is done, unfortunately once will never change anything in NYC, repeated calls, letters & emails will!

NYC/DOT robbing drivers by TRICKING them...

This sign should read NO PARKING ANYTIME!!! But it is intentionally posted in the manner to manipulate us! We are aware how Bloomberg raised every possible NYC violation, but using manipulation is a crime & those behind it should be be prosecuted! The sign above is just another example of how NYC takes advantage of us (knowing they can get away with it), this is just another example why so many of the working class New Yorkers are struggling to make a living! When are New Yorkers going to realize that Mayor Bloomberg (& his administration) are only concerned with making money at our expense! This sign is a perfect example of how NYC tricks drivers into getting violations, why, to make an extra dollar! When we complain they just tell us "fight it"... why should we have to fight their error (or manipulation) at our personal time, expense & all the stress related to it. The problem is, NYC makes it easy for them & this is why they give out violations so freely (and what is even more disturbing is our tax dollars pay these NYC workers to abuse us - many for their own personal satisfaction)! What needs to be done here is, if we are found innocent/they are found guilty, they should be penalized and we should be compensated for every minute of time we lost! I am quite certain NYC & (those issuing violations) will be more careful before giving out violations! The problem is, our elected officials & all of the Mayors "administrators"are supporting this malicious behavior, which is a crime & all those behind it should be prosecuted & penalized the same we way everyone else is! WE all need to fight NYC & demand a law that penalizes the very people/agencies who are responsible for situations like this (& so many other violations which none of us should ever get)!

We need to SPEAK OUT & fight back to his administrators & our "elected officials"! NYC has a $4.4 billion surplus (at our expense) the hard working NYC tax payers, lets be honest, what does he care, he's the 112th BILLIONARE in the world! "Dear Mr Bloomberg & Elected officials, you are treating the NYC working class like slaves to create a surplus (at our expense) it's obvious you are doing it for the #'s, as we all suffer & struggle each & every day, meanwhile your administrators live comfortably, enough is enough!

Bloomberg Does it AGAIN this time directly insulting NYPD!

When are New Yorkers going to realize that Mayor Bloomberg (& his administration) is only concerned with themselves! He has shown us his true colors once again, this time by insulting an NYPD officer James Zadroga, who put his life on the line after the 911 attack & died from an illness. Bloomberg has show us how much he lacks compassion for the New York people to the point that now he insults those who have sacrificed their lives for New York! (And once again he tries to change his story around!) He is the reason why so many of the working class New Yorkers are struggling to make a living! He raised every possible violation from simple Parking tickets, to how much rent we have to pay (because the real estate taxes went totally out of control, which have forced homeowners to raise rents)! And our elected officals & all of the his "administrators" who aggressively enforce it all, are supporting this, because he makes sure they live comfortably, (maybe if they didnt, this wouldnt be happening! We have only ourselves to blame, because we do not SPEAK OUT & fight back to his adminstrators & our "elected officials"! NYC has a $4.4 billion surplus (at our expense) the hard working NYC tax payers, lets be honest, what does he care, he's the 112th BILLIONARE in the world!

WEST NILE SPRAYING is killing vital insects!

Have you noticed the silence... no Cicadas this year?
Interestingly before 911, they made a big deal out of
"one" elderly death, so NYC decided to spray like it was the end of the world! Since then many "vital" insects have been killed, insects which are needed for a healthy eco system! NYC pollution does enough damage to those necessary insects, now we are intentionally killing them not because of west nile, it's an excuse so someone can make money selling insecticide, WHAT A SCAM! Let's face it, the mosquito has been around for 170 million yrs & will out survive a nuclear catasrophe, if our gov thinks they will control the mosquito, they are terribly mistaken! Lets put things in perspective here,
thousands die each year from drunk drivers! NYC wants to "save lives", they need to take "OUR" money & invest it in saving lives where people die on a daily basis, our NYC roads, drunk drivers, drugs & guns on our streets... not on west nile spraying based one case of west nile, these are over exagerated & totally misleading facts! Cicadas are gone, what about the insects that we can not hear?

STOP THE SPRAYING! If we don't speak out, nothing will ever change & all the vital insects needed for our struggling eco system will die!

NYPD Hwy Patrol hasn't seen a raise in 3 yrs!

NYC has a $4.4 billion surplus (at the expense) of the hard working NYC tax payers. Yet Mayor Bloomberg reduces the starting pay for NYPD & makes it just above the amount to qualify for section 8, what does he care, he's the 112th BILLIONARE in the world! He hasn't given NYPD's Highway Patrol a raise in 3 years, however he uses their services for his protection. With so much surplus (which came from us), the NYPD (who risk their lives), should be gettting a fair raise, after all Sanitiation does! "Dear Mr Bloomberg, you are treating us hard workers like slaves to create a surplus (at our expense) it's obvious you are doing it for the #'s, becasue here we all are suffering meanwhile our streets are in such bad shape and when something is repaired, it is done poorly, enough is enough!

What NYC & the Government does not want you to know!
The Major Cause Of NYC Middle & Lower Class struggle...
The HOMELESS epidemic and
The Real Estate disaster which is unfolding...

NYC has a $4.4 billion surplus at the expense of the NYC tax payers. It's no secret how difficult is has become for the working class to pay rent in the NYC 5 boroughs, what most are not aware of, is NYC is to blame. Why, because NYC increases the Real Estate Taxes every year at a far greater rate than the working class wage increase! Tenants blame the owners, BUT THEY NEED TO GO AFTER NYC! Owners are forced to increase rents in order to pay these astronomical R/E taxes, insurance bills, gas, electric, maintenance etc. Many apartment owners are indeed working class, who have saved up for many years to own a piece of income producing property, only to find themselves giving not only all the profit to NYC instead of making a profit, but also having to use their personaly savings before NYC confiscates it from them. Sadly, many have lost thier homes & have ended up in homeless shelters because they lose their properties to NYC! They increase r/e taxes until the owners are paying more than the income & then they take it away from them... something is clearly wrong here! All they say to them is, "this is the law". Well that is wrong, we are all suffering for their mistakes (or corruption)! Here is the problem: NYC increases R/E taxes = owners must increase rents = working class can not afford = Working class struggles or becomes Homeless = NYC needs "more" money for shelters, programs etc.= NYC increases R/E taxes... it's an endless downward spiral and we will all suffer until the system colapses! Well it's finally time for this to change! None of us should be paying these high rents but we are! And to add more insult to injury, with such a high surplus, we still find so many of our streets in hainous conditions & trying to get anything repaired is like pulling teeth & when do make any repairs, they are done poorly!

MAKE A CHANGE! If we don't speak out, nothing will ever change. Contact our NYC & State officials and demand a change today! Begin by emailing the Mayor & the Governor, don't stop there, go to NYC.gov call & email all NYC until something is done, once will never change anything, repeated calls. letters & emails will!

NYC... Salting DRY Streets with our TAX dollars!
See 2nd VIDEO
We are all aware how NYC Dept of Sanitation did not clean our streets during the 2/14/07 snow fall. It was Valentines Day and alot of people & business' suffered from it. As if that was not enough abuse, our Mayor had the nerve to give us hard workers violations for not being able to move our vehicles, how cruel! There have also been many reports made to us that on 1-29-07(video above) & after this BIG 2-14-07 disaster, for Saniation driving around certain areas & spreading salt on DRY streets... HELLO, where are you when the snow actually falls! They don't care, why, because it is done with"our TAX dollars"! This is something physical that we can all instantly see! Just one example of the many (corrupted) things that are costing us. But our Mayor dismiss' & deny's it, because he does not want us to see the truth. Just look at our cost of living (ie Rents /High R/E taxes) in NYC, it is totally out of control! Nothing will change unless we all SPEAK OUT! He is no dummy, he gives homeowners a refund check (a form of manipluation to make us beleive he is doing us a favor , but at the same time he increases the R/E Taxes). He is also making us pay in many other ways, high priced violations for everything imaginable & with no mercy... think about it, he was making us pay for parking on Sunday's, til we spoke out! Why are rents sky high & getting higher, because he keeps raising the R/E taxes. No one even wants to own property, because most of the profit goes to NYC! Lets face it. we are modern SALVES to NYC! This is our city & we are paying Taxes for services, NOT abuse and to get ripped off. This has to end, before the working class people in NYC snap! We cannot be blind to what NYC is doing to us anymore!
