In a city so dependent on public transportation, it is almost incomprehensible to cut service on the MTA system. But most of these cuts will happen, because no one is offering any help or alternative ideas. These cuts will strand overnight riders of bus routes, and will lead to dangerously overcrowded subways on weekends and middays. They plan on cutting service on the 7!! One of the busiest lines! The MTA wants to balance the budget on our backs, instead of cutting their executive board salaries, or raising bridge tolls. I knew this would happen without Congestion Pricing, and you can thank one man for that, by the name of Sheldon Silver, a true enemy of the people! For a complete list of cuts, go to the PDF's below. HEARING SCHEDULE: The list is so long I cant even post it here, so read the PDF's and watch the video!

3/18/2009 - Independence high in san jose vs. Silver Creek in baseball The Raiders 6-3 over the 76ers in the bottom of the 7th when stud right fielder Leio Ulu does it again. He hits his 4th hr in 4 games since making grades, and does it this time against reigning West Valley division MVP Sheldon Daquioug who has absolutely dominated indy in the past, but this time they hit well against him especially here. This dinger tied the game up, but the home 76ers went on to lose 8-6 in extras.

Albany is broken. Unchallenged for decades, Sheldon Silver has lost touch with our community and perpetuates a damaging culture of failure in our state capital. This damages not just the state as a whole but also the district Mr. Silver represents. Please visit to learn more about Paul Newell and the upcoming 64th state assembly district primary.

In addition to making music, I spend my time fighting the unimaginably corrupt Judiciary in New York State. Recently Jonathan Lippman was nominated to the become of Chief Judge of New York State, a position considered by many to be the most powerful and influential seat in the most powerful state in the most powerful nation on Earth. Unfortunately Jonathan Lippman is a corrupt, lying, power mad piece of s**t, who is basically a puppet of Assembly leader Sheldon Silver. Because I happen to have personal knowledge and clear evidence that Lippman did illegal favors for a member of the State Commission that nominated him, (who also happens to be the foremost Mafia lawyer in the state), I felt it was my duty to testify in opposition to his confirmation. On February 11th, 2009, the New York State Senate Judiciary Committee held a "Public Hearing" on the confirmation of Jonathan Lippman as Chief Judge Of New York State. There was only one problem.... in violation of state law, The Public was not notified of nor invited to the hearing. Instead, the Judiciary Committee "loaded" the hearing with fifty of Judge Lippman's friends and family, who came from all over the state to heap praise on the presumptive Chief Judge. Through an inadvertant "leak" , however, activist Elena Sassower found out about the hearing two days before it took place. Ms. Sassower, Dean Loren and myself "crashed" the "Public" hearing (how dare the public attend a public hearing) and thus were the only three <b>...</b>
