"New York Is Drowning In Bribes And Corruption"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Miachel Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Public corruption, based on all the evidence, appears rampant. And the ranks of those convicted in office have swelled to absolutely unacceptable levels. State Senators as well as State Assemblymen; elected officials as well as party leaders; city council members as well as town mayors; Democrats as well as Republicans.

- Preet Bharara, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York (the district that has failed to rein in the serial crimes by Wall Street’s biggest firms)

ilovenNY

It’s no surprise to me that New York is exceedingly corrupt. It’s a huge city, with a ton of wealth and massive income inequality. That’s basically the primary breeding ground for wide-scale corruption. However, it also comes as no surprise to me that the situation has gotten a lot worse in recent years. After all, NYC is the headquarters of some of the largest financial institutions in the world. As such, some of the worst actors in the recent financial collapse call the city home. The whole world watched as these criminals and shysters not only evaded criminal charges, but were also rewarded trillions of dollars of public support for their efforts.

The example was set. Crime pays, and now the entire city seems to be following their lead.

Pam Martens has written and excellent article about corruption within New York’s legal system. Some excerpts from Counter Punch are below:

The insidious greed and public looting that Wall Street has nurtured to an art form in New York City is metastasizing like a virulent tumor strain throughout the state, fraying the social fabric and crushing people caught in its grip like bugs.

 

On Tuesday evening, September 17, 2013, Seema Kalia was scheduled to give testimony before the first public hearing of the New York State Moreland Commission on Public Corruption.  But according to Michelle Duffy, a spokesperson for the Commission, when Kalia’s name was called that evening, there was no response.

 

Kalia could not respond because she was abruptly arrested in the foyer of a courtroom on the very morning she was set to give testimony, ostensibly for contacting her ex husband, a portfolio manager on Wall Street, seeking back support payments. Kalia is being charged with violating a court order barring her from contact with her husband because she is alleged to have thrown one of his own men’s shoes at him in 2012 – a device characterized by the District Attorney’s office as a “weapon.” Typically, a misdemeanor charge of this nature would not result in jail time.

 

In Kalia’s case, however, she has been jailed at Rikers Island since September 17 and when she went before a Judge on October 4, she was sent back to jail for another 33 days after she declined to plead guilty to attempting to do bodily harm with a “weapon.” Her bond was doubled from $7,500 to $15,000. The earliest she might be released is November 7, her next court date.

 

When it came time for the general public to testify about public corruption, it wasn’t legislative leaders the witnesses railed against, it was corrupt judges. Multiple witnesses testified to having real estate property stolen through corrupt court proceedings. One witness, Dale Javino, said he was cheated out of his life savings in bankruptcy court and what happened to him “is like what happens in Nazi Germany…”

 

Janice Schacter, a retired attorney, said that the Thomas Street location of the New York State Supreme Court “is pay to play; orders are not enforced, laws are not applied, domestic violence is treated with derision and conflicts of interest are ignored. Deference and preferential treatment are given to wealthy spouses and lawyers of prestigious firms.” Schacter also testified that the judge involved in her case attempted to censor her contact with the press by threatening to send her to jail at Rikers Island for 20 days. She said she was still having nightmares about it.

 

The one thing that sets the two apart is that Seema Kalia is behind bars in Rikers Island over a misdemeanor charge which is incorrectly listed as a Class D Felony at the New York City Department of Correction inmate lookup web site. I provided the correct information to the Department of Correction, showing that the shoe-throwing incident had previously been reduced to a misdemeanor by the District Attorney’s office, and asking if someone might have provided phony documents to incarcerate Ms. Kalia. A response was promised by my deadline. None was forthcoming.

 

In 2007, New York State Supreme Court Judge Gerald P. Garson was convicted of accepting bribes from divorce attorney Paul Siminovsky. During an eight-month investigation by the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office, a video camera secretly placed in Garson’s chambers captured Siminovsky plying Garson with expensive cigars and cash. In court proceedings, Siminovsky testified that he entertained the judge with drinks and meals in exchange for favorable courtroom treatment. Siminovsky pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a year in jail.

 

After years of appeals, Garson, who had heard over 1,100 divorce cases, served only 2 ½ years in prison before being paroled on December 23, 2009. His maximum term could have been as much as 15 years at the time of sentencing but he received a sentence of 3 to 10 years. His early release set off protests with signs saying “Crime Pays In New York City” and “Justice for Sale.”

 

If one needs the ultimate proof that New York cannot heal itself, consider the amount of the bail bond that was set prior to sentencing after Judge Garson was convicted of accepting bribes while seated as a New York State Supreme Court Judge. His bond was set at $15,000.  That’s the amount set in Seema Kalia’s case for a misdemeanor charge stemming from throwing a man’s shoe.

A $15,000 bond for a woman throwing a shoe at her Wall Street ex-husband, and a $15,000 bond for a state Supreme Court judge for accepting bribes. That pretty much sums it up.

Good thing Mayor Bloomberg is focused on arresting Banksy when the city’s legal system has become one giant cesspool of fraud and corruption.

Its no surprise this corruption happened.  Its all because the People let it happen; plain and simple.  People will find out about this and will still do nothing.  What will it take for the People to take action?  What will it take for the People to kick these politicians and CEOs to the street?  These people in power will not punch you in the face or break in your house.  They are more sublte.  They will steal your wealth, steal your rights and keep you as their modern-day-serf.

 

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."  - US Declaration of Independance

Locke:

But force, or a declared design of force, upon the person of another, where there is no common superior on earth to appeal to for relief, is the state of war: and it is the want of such an appeal gives a man the right of war even against an aggressor, tho' he be in society and a fellow subject. Thus a thief, whom I cannot harm, but by appeal to the law, for having stolen all that I am worth, I may kill, when he sets on me to rob me but of my horse or coat; because the law, which was made for my preservation, where it cannot interpose to secure my life from present force, which, if lost, is capable of no reparation, permits me my own defence, and the right of war, a liberty to kill the aggressor, because the aggressor allows not time to appeal to our common judge, nor the decision of the law, for remedy in a case where the mischief may be irreparable. Want of a common judge with authority, puts all men in a state of nature: force without right, upon a man's person, makes a state of war, both where there is, and is not, a common judge.

If "society", or "government", cannot discharge its most basic duty, then it is null and void.  We run barefoot where angels fear to tread.  So be it.

Not only is this news, it's not even all of the "news". There is more to the story of Seema.

"Millionaire financier's wife wages online war against top prep school"

(http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1378104/Millionaire-financiers-w...)

Seems like Seema, (sorry, I just had to do it), likes to bark up the wrong trees all over the place. No wonder the judge tossed her ass in the can and is keeping her there. I doubt if throwing shoes at her ex and fucking with the prep school all the judges, lawyers and hedge fund managers in Manhattan send their kids to is the limit of her... indiscretions.What's the old saying about pulling on Superman's cape and pissing into the wind? Oh yeah, don't do it.

With all those accusations it's a wonder why the prep school didn't sue her for defamation and slander, unless those accusations are true. ??? So her arrest still points to an abuse of power and very suspicious considering the timing of the arrest.

Billyburg is now the home of trend-chasing Californian RE bust washouts who haven't yet learned the proper lesson in buying low.  The hipster "phenomenon" was centered around  the downtown startup hive itself a derivative of cheap money accessible to the fringes/dropout element of the 1%. They had afforded low salaries for their fresh young creative and technical minions and said minions thus needed cheap 2-stop access to Manhattan, or a sunny-day bike ride across a bridge.  Cheap money is also now erecting tower condos on the East River waterfront from Dumbo all the way to Astoria.  In the sunset shadow of these towers you see the skeleton of the old post-industrial gentrifiers.  The rule of outerborough value correlates with the availibility of mass transit vis a vis subway stops.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying "GTF out".  Personally I'm happy where I live, not far from the East River waterfront, and I can afford my lifestyle.  That's the key to enjoying the City - and as Banzai implies, there is much to enjoy.  In any case, part of the value of those properties is that 1) they are not Manhattan 2) They back up onto either down-zoned residential areas, industrial swaths, or otherwise impenetrable neighborhoods.  Bed-Stuy, for example.  Good luck walking your baby stroller on the same sidewalk as a Hasid clan as a gentile in some parts of Brooklyn.  In any case, if you buy in WB for Manhattan prices, you miss the point entirely.

Escape from New York is a 1981 American science fiction action film co-written, co-scored, and directed by John Carpenter. The film is set in a then-near future 1997 in a crime-ridden United States that has converted Manhattan Island in New York City into a maximum security prison

This is hardly surprising. When the people see the corruption in Washington, it is a wonder that anyone has any respect left for the law. The corruption trickles down to state, county, and local government, and eventually to the man on the street. The end result is a total decay of the social fabric and the USA returns to the days of the wild west.

One could follow the DOJ's lead and stop prosecuting pretty much any large institution.  Sure makes the crime stats look good!  As a bonus, it frees up manpower to vigorously pursue whistleblowers.

Dear good folks,

Sad is the Heart that hangs down the head with Tom Dooley.

Little did we know about how we would grow up in America to one day face the great unreality that we would have our own govt declare war on We, the American People. How naive we as a country were to ever believe these evil criminals that inhabit the places of leadership running the rudderless ship aground for the profits and gains of a few. How foolish the poor TV drug watching masses are to allow this insanity of the destruction of America to continue as the looming crash and coming war on America comes closer. How perfectly planned and foretold and more so, how stupidly ignored>:

http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/przion1.htm

Yo, coming to a theater near you soon!

http://video.ilmessaggero.it/index.jsp?videoId=15379&sectionId=87&t=cort...

For a few weeks now, the Heart has been singing this song. What is a bank holiday? Why is it so obvious that a well planned economic crash will happen any day now, maybe even on November 7th or 8th to prevent the impending bank runs. Soon, the masses will find out the babylonians are broke, and are taking the country down with them.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kk3RjKcSBz4&feature=c4-overview&list=UU6j...

Here comes the open window for the head puppet soterobama to throw the martial law card to lock-down the country and implement the tyrannical insanity of the Bolshevik takeover in the new killing fields. He needs this to cover up all the scams and crimes of many of these babylonians. Most especially, his own. It could come as a false flag event involving an pre-planned EMP attack, a bio-weapon, or grid shut down drill. THIS has already been foretold years ago. The too big to fail whale is sinking the ship as the dead stench of the years old skuzzy maggot infested carcass reeks among the crew. No one cares. They watch and bet and cheer as the grand old sailing vessel lisps on the sun setting horizon of oblivion to kingdom come.

It is bad. So bad to be here almost trapped for the shutdown and closing of the gates to begin the wholesale slaughtering using all the methods and technology they have used to murder millions around the globe. All that was, and is just practice for what they plan to do to the American People. And what the most insane in the brain and hurtinest thing about all this freaking twilight zone madness is; THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE PAID THESE MURDEROUS CRIMINALS WITH THEIR OWN TAX DOLLARS TO TRAIN AND BUY THE WEAPONS AND AMMUNITION FOR ALL THESE FOREIGN EVIL MERCENARIES AND TURN-COAT TRAITOR AMERICAN MILITARY KILLERS THAT ARE ABOUT TO CRAWL OUT OF THEIR HOLES TO MAKE CHAOS AND WAR ON EVERY SINGLE FREE THINKING AMERICAN.

GOT THAT? READ IT AGAIN PILGRIM!

This has to be the most out of control world that allows this heinous criminality to continue day after day unabated, or even addressed in the public square. No one cares. It is like pigs eating their own and shating it out, and eating it again and again and again. Talk about PIG madness! Fark! Stick a tongue in it and turn on the darn TV, for Pete is waiting for this busload to get off the Popsicle of what ever it is that allows this craziness to keep going on to the planned day of the BANK HOLIDAY!

What is that? Hummmmmm….

What is more alarming, there are more good hearts that are on the same wavelength. Here is a story that has come up lately. What the babylonians do not realize is, those who are connected to truth in their own hearts are all receiving the same messages there. Everybody knows because of the greater Spiritual dimensions coming into play. Of course, that is a whole different arena on the other side. Not for sale here.

http://12160.info/group/a-republic-if-you-can-keep-it/forum/topics/lock-...

Look your loved ones in the face and realize America, it is already too late to stop the coming planned insanity of chaos. Death may separate you soon. Prepare your communities now. Stock up on everything you need in a year. Prepare to be self-sustainate. Form community watch groups. Talk to others in your neighborhood, in the stores, and where ever you go about emergency preparedness. It could all happen soon.

There is only one way:

United we Stand…Divided we Fall…

Family and Community…will save us All!

Several optimists have told me humans today aren't like that, they're progressively changing for the better.

Of course I shot them painlessly from behind, without warning. Better that than to have some evil bastard cut parts off for their dogs while they were still alive, right? I must say I've had some fairly disturbing doubts about it though. I'm left wondering if I could have handled it a bit better? Maybe used them as impromptu decoys or distractions if an armed-gang shows up? I think I've really failed to make the most of all my resources, and to tell you the truth I'm a bit disgusted with myself, and regret it. But I learned a bitter lesson from this. I figure I can use them for several useful purposes before they die, next time. I've been thinking I should write my experiences up for others, who find themselves in a similar situation, and don't know the best way to respond for survival? What do you think?

{Please don't judge me, I'm just trying to get the right state of mind operating for when SHTF decision-making time comes along, I don't want to not recognize it, or hesitate in the important moment, or make the wrong survival choices which could mean bad things happen.}

2 Thessalonians 3:10: Those who won't work don't eat.

Matthew 7:6: Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs.

if you believe what you said, you think this bullshit is real. It isn't. Or perhaps you are postulating your claims on the msm shitstorm. No matter how diligent your analysis, thats not real either, because its based on bullshit.

America is in the heart. America is freedom. Freedom is Free Will. Free Will is the base premise of the statements alleged to Jesus Christ, and coincidentally, to Ayn Rand. The opposite of Free Will is hierarchical domination. Slaves and masters. Pharisees.

Some wanker proposed that the measure of intelligence is the ability to hold opposing ideas at the same time and not see them as conflicting. Its not complete, but used properly this is a good tool. Ayn Rand hated collectivism, the principle of masters dictating to slaves. Jesus condemned the pharisees, the hegemonic liars who cheated their brothers into slavery so they could rule. The church hates Ayn Rand. Ayn Rand agreed with Jesus. Jesus taught/preached Free Will.

No existing church of any scale to play politics preaches Free Will. None.     

Can you see? 

If you read it right there is much to learn from the bible. But reading it is perilous to children, those who do not read it the right way. The right way requires maturity, perspective, a developed ego, or at least a hand up by someone who is mature. Depending on others for a hand up is perilous. This world is screwed up because of the age of magicians, bullshit laid on uneducated people for profit by exploitation. Or as you call it, politics. And fraud.

The debate is whether the free choices individuals make is better than some self appointed tyrant dictating their vision on everyone else. I believe we can each change the world, by our choices. Invest everything in your education and you'll actualize the former. There is much about our existence that noone can explain. This reality is as far beyond our comprehension as the mind of any god that would allow the worse than death suffering I have witnessed.

You are on your own. Do not follow anyone. Reference their ideas, but don't believe anything you can't yourself prove.

So, she declined to plead guilty and not that she declined to enter a plea at all? LOL!  Who writes this crap?  Truly, if you can't stick with the facts I won't read further.

While I don't doubt public corruption in New York for one second, hanging all of the city's corruption on the banks is ludicrous. Politicians have been taking bribes for city contracts of all kinds for eons. The district attorney isn't focused on public corruption because he's looking to make a name for himself as a sort of stepping stone into higher public office.

RE: NEW YORK FEDERAL RESERVE:

 

Obama & Hillary take notice. No Secret Service, NSA, or snipers around. You had this guy killed to install someone else. Another uproar in Libya is currently unfolding.

 If we’re a democracy,  why not drive through the same city & the same google map that Gaddafi took with your head peered out of your unarmored vehicle? See, the global community has figured you out.  As you will see, the guy you had killed traveled without any military protection. Why not duplicate it?  Show your love in removing this tyrant by driving down the same city path without the need for armed services to look after you? Watch this video step by step.

The days of living in a glass house are over. We are America. Your gig has died and we’ll send you [public servants] to whatever country that wants to slowly torture you over fucking someone over.. You no longer represent the United States of America core values.  Not a bullet will be shot when we hand you over.

It is about a concentration of power. NY is an economic hub of the world and this focused power makes corruption irresisable, just like politcal power is focused on DC.

Come again?  I agree with the rest of your post though.  And these cancerous growths (NY, DC, most of California) are doing damage to the rest of the body.

What's worse is that cells from the most cancerous parts are breaking off from where they developed and spreading to other areas, often not knowing why or having only a vague notion of why and then spreading their diseased notions to other areas (think Californians heading to Nevada or Arizona or Austin, TX; or Bostonians moving to New Hampshire and Vermont) seeding and rooting their rot.

I remember digging a hole in North Carolina with a kid who had never left Queens, Manhattan, and the Bronx for the first 19 years of his life.  Had never been to Statan Island and was unsure if he had ever crossed into Brooklyn. 

Trying to get him to not be scared in the woods at night was fun, but he made it through by doing the New Yorker thing trying to appear tougher than he really was at the moment...

What I'm trying to say is that some people won't make it out because they literally know nothing else. 

Having been to 41 states and over a dozen other countries it's crazy to think that there are people who haven't been outside of a single city (in his case just parts thereof) or just a couple counties....yet they exist, and probably by the millions just here in the US.

N.Y. Corrupt?  What is the history of the N.Y.P.D. for greater than two centuries?  New Amsterdam was settled by which people (superior to all others) with no guilt allowed for how they treated their cattle?  I don"t know why someone brought up comrade obama concerning this topic.  Barry who learned so much at the feet of Mr. Davis in Hawaii seems to resemble this famous communist far more than the Kenyan. I have a feeling the whole birth certificate issue is meant to discredit doubters and distract from his tutelage under Davis.  There appears to be some photographic evidence that his mother really liked the guy ( if you get my drift). We rant and rage about religious fanatics around the world, however this country is well controlled by people (wether they be believers or not) who are members of the religious aristocracy of three religions.  The adherents to these religions are for the most part ignorant of what their heirarchies are involved in and what they truly believe.

New Amsterdam was settled by which people (superior to all others) with no guilt allowed for how they treated their cattle?

actually not exactly true.   the Dutch at least had a strain of understanding of tolerance, respect & equality for other cultures.   much of that understanding got filtered back from the streets of New Amsterdam and further infiltrated their political & legal systems.

but yes, the Dutch elite ultimately lost their crown jewel because they went around killing the natives and starting unnecessary blood feuds between them and the common citizens, using them both as pawns in a chess game between Empires.

same as it ever was...

I was in a life or death  fight with a gun toting off duty cop who was drunk and screwing with my girlfriend in a bar.  I had asked politely three times for him to piss off and quit bothering her.  We went outside as he reached in his jacket for a handgun on our way out the door I kicked him when he turned around and it broke his knee and he went down.  Six police who had me in lock up were proceeding to beat me within an inch of my life with billy clubs and their boots when a cop friend of man walked in and said I kill the next guy that touches him again.  He went with me before the judge the next morning and I walked out facing no charges with chipped teeth,  both eyes swelled nearly shut and both lips busted and scabbed over.  I was ninteen and this was 1974 and I was too scared or ignorant to hire an attorney what with the publicity and all it would result in.  I have been on the wrong end of the law in a few occasions.  The rule of law in this country is you are usually outnumbered and most certainly outgunned.  You take your chance in court and not on the streets.  This country is being eaten from the inside out.  It is rotten and it is all levels.  See,  life isn't a game.  It has never been a game.  I had a black professor in college in a class discussion on a heavy snow day with only 8 kids in the class what we saw as the biggest problem in the inner cities of America.  I said that Fathers Day was the most confusing day in the ghetto because it wasn't celebrated all that much.  He gave me a B. I graduated with honors with a perfect GPA except for his B.  I fought it but it was a subjective grade based on his final exam style.  I offended a minority.  I lost  a game warden job due to Affirmitive Action programs when they were first introduced and a man of darker skin was given the job even though the man who had done my interview told me he didn't know a turkey from a pheasant from a quail.  Life isn't a game.  There are consequences for our actions.  Those who live above the law, above the rules of finance, above the rest of us will be put on notice.  I have raised my kids,  I have paid my taxes,  I have paid all license fees all excise taxes, all sales taxes, 35% of my income in my peak earning years,  given to charities,  supported our local police,  smiled as teachers and firefighters are worshipped as the only ones in America who work hard and deserve all their obscene pay and pension plans.  I am a quiet one.  I am not an ignorant one.  I grieve for what my country has become.  I grieve for what has become "acceptable" behavior in our society.  I grieve when I look to the future.  I have four grandkids now.  I am a quiet one.  I want them to have a future.  I want my children to watch their granchildren to grow up in America.  We cannot go back and we profit little in looking back.  I think this country is made of men just like me.  Men who are well aware who works hard in this country.  Men who are well aware of what goes on in our courts and by the police on our streets.  Men who have paid every tax and license fee and penalty ever thrown at them.  Men who have also had just about enough.  See,  I think a man grows old when he looks backward more than he looks forward. I call on all men in this country to keep looking forward. Let us grow old together in America.  An America we may be called on to change.  An America we may be called on to sacrifice more than just taxes and fees to help change.  We are out here.  We are tired.  We sadden when we see the corruption on all levels, in all offices and all locations of power across our land.  But we will not lay down.  We will not always look the other way.  We will stand up.  It will take a spark but the powder is there.  Stay hopeful.

I recognize there is a certain presumptuousness in this, a certain audacity, to this announcement. I know that I haven't spent a lot of time learning the ways of Washington, but I've been there long enough to know that the ways of Washington must change. People who love their country can change it.

In Africa, you often see that the difference between a village where everybody eats and a village where people starve is government. One has a functioning government, and the other does not. Which is why it bothers me when I hear people say that government is the enemy. They don't understand its fundamental role.

Over.

Which one are people starving in? The one with government or the one without?

Just trying to figure out if it is the same as in America, or the opposite.

Alleges: "Junk Justice" in Queens Mortgage Fraud Case

[Sunny Sheu had his home improperly foreclosed upon. He had the evidence proving it was improper. The foreclosure judge ruled against him. Mr. Sheu investigated what he believed was judicial corruption. He said the judge threatened him. Now he is dead.]

Activist Dead Weeks After Posting Video About His Fears

Part One of a Series

Since his death last summer, associates of Sun Ming Sheu, an activist fighting alleged judicial corruption in New York, remain convinced that he was murdered and that police aren’t investigating his death because of a coverup.

They point to the alleged kidnapping and death threats by New York Police Department (NYPD) officers Sheu reported to the FBI, the highly suspicious circumstances of Sheu’s injury, the contradictions in the official reports of his death, and most conspicuously, the lack of any investigation by law enforcement, even after the manner of Sheu’s death was ruled “undetermined” by the Medical Examiner, making an investigation legally mandatory.

They also cite a motive- the silencing of Sheu three days after he declared that he had discovered proof of felonies by a New York State Supreme Court Judge.

Perhaps the most ominous evidence of foul play, the associates say, is the video Sunny Sheu made weeks before his death – now posted on Youtube – in which he predicts his own murder and names the parties he feels will be responsible; parties including a sitting State Supreme Court Judge and two detectives of the Queens District Attorney office whom he had claimed “kidnapped” and threatened him months prior.

NYPD are not police. They're Bloomberg's army.

How much happier would the world be if that entire shithole of a city was wiped clean to the state it was in before they ripped off the Indians?

What a joke. Bharara was Schumer's lawyer. Didn't he know who administered pay to play for Schumer's spreading around NY cash to other Senators' campaign coffers? Bharara's office has multiple complaints of judicial and NYC and NY State corruption which he keeps under his rug. Cuomo ran his own pay to play, wherein he funded his governor's run with cash collected from lawyers with actions against NY State in which Cuomo as Attorney General represented the State. Bloomberg buys justice with cash and his appointment of judges.

In the latest, Cuomo's recent publicized Moreland Commission holding public hearings on NY State corruption refused to hear public complaints.
It's not there's something rotten in NY; it's everything is rotten in NY.

We'd have to go back quite a way before NY wasn't drowning in bribes and corruption. Back to the point where native peoples lived there.

Not far enough. The indian tribe that sold Manhattan to the Dutch didn't actually own it. They were just visiting. When the real owners came back, the Dutch had to pay for it again. This may not be the first New York real estate scam  but it is the first on record.

Real owners? My reading of this history is that Native Americans simply couldn't grok the Western idea of land ownership. They were tied to the land through tradition and their ancestors laid there, but my sense is that they didn't think of property the way we do these days.

William your map of Manhattan looks incredibly like a side of hanging beef to me.  That may be my meat cutter past when we still broke quarters of beef but I think that may be how the elite look at us.  Like slabs of meat to be fed on.  Very fitting I think.  Keep up the good work.

Once when I was a kid I worked at a hog farm and I actualy fell into a pool of pig shit that was a foot deep. The funny thing about shit getting on you is after awhile you can't even smell it any more even when your knee high in it.
