  THIS is to announce that Gary cannot rest in peace because  of  the greater depth this administration has fallen since his physical departure.  So he has arisen in spirit and has directed that his thoughts continue to be heard here on his blog.

The problem, I think, is that the President obfuscate the facts. This  coverage is for pre-existing conditions, but,  the State can ask for change. Viola, change in an effect!

What if Trump is really working for the Russians. What if his job is to sow discord within the US? What if he really works for the Russian? Remember the Manchurian Candidate.

We had spies in our memories, lots of them. It is not so far-fetched.

Fiona the hippo has captured the hearts and minds of the Zoo going public in Cincinnati. Here's a picture of her hamming it up with her mother

Oscar Pistorius's 6-year prison sentence was more than doubled by a South African court. He was convicted of killing his girlfriend in 2013.

BANGKOK — A chemical spill that devastated the coast of central Vietnam last year claimed another casualty on Monday when a 22-year-old blogger was sentenced to seven years in prison for posting reports on the disaster.

I know a  President who would like to do this.

About sexually harassment of our women:-

How Far Does This Have to Go?
Now that they’ve got the ball rolling, it would probably be easier to identify the few men who HAVE NOT sexually harassed a woman in the workplace or in public or private.
I wonder how far this has to go before proper behavior will be expected. Should a line be drawn? Like from today on you all will be fired for your bad behavior.....because in the end 99% of all men will be guilty of some form of sexual harassment from the maintenance guy on up to the president.

Actual rules and policies need to be created to differentiate between actual harassment, sexual harassment, sexual assault, and “oh, he made me uncomfortable.” — DE, Tucson

A True Story

There was a conference in France where a number of international
engineers were taking part, including French and American.  During
a break one of the French engineers came back into the room saying,
"Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done?  He has sent
an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the Tsunami victims.  What
does he intend to do, bomb them?"

A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly:  "Our carriers have
three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they
are nuclear powered and can supply emergency power to shore
facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000
people three meals a day; they can produce several thousand gallons
of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen
helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from
their flight deck.  We have eleven such ships; how many does France

You could have heard a pin drop.

Scandals - 10A

Read SCANDALS 10, -- about Capital Improvements and who pays for them.  This subject matter needs to be expanded.  The truth must come out and you must take notice.  Are you stupid; are you just plain stupid, -- a nit-wit?  Well, if you’re not, then stand up and scream “Of course I’m not stupid.”  Then band together and do something to stop not only those who are stealing from you, but also those who can do something about it and won’t.  We are talking about one hell-of-a-lot of money.  If you wish to travel back in time, -- the monies stolen from you could have purchased both club houses.

Let’s get right down to it . . . THE PURE FACTS
A Capital Improvement is the addition of a permanent structural improvement or the restoration of some aspect of a property that will either enhance the property’s overall value or increase its useful life.  Capital Improvements can be applied to buildings themselves and individually to structural components, which also include, heating & ventilating, plumbing, electrical, fire protection, security systems and elevators.  Capital Improvements enhance the value of the property in the nature of a betterment; extends the useful life of the property; improves the efficiency of the property; improves the quality of the property; it is the addition of upgrades of modifications to the property; and improvements that put property into a better functioning condition; ameliorates a material condition or defect in the property; and provides addition of new or replacement components and material sub-components to the property.
 (This information was retrieved from several sources, including but not limited to: CPA’s,  IRS, Investopedia    Wikipedia, The American Institute of Architects, The Society of American Registered Architects, American Bar Association, and others.)

Stay with me.  According to the Millennium Operating Agreement, all Capital Improvements are to be paid one hundred (100%) by the Management Company (WPRF/Benenson Capital).  That is in print . . .  a fact.  So, why are we paying for Capital Improvements over and over, with no end in sight?  We’re talking about millions of dollars.

It is because the Management Company is big and powerful and there’re willing to spend huge sums of money to defend their position, whatever that may be.  You should know that if we disagree with their conclusions, we reserve the right, under the Millennium Agreement, to bring the matter to Arbitration, also known as Dispute Resolution.
Why won’t the president of UCO, David Israel, bring the matter to arbitration?  An experienced person in this type of scenario will tell you that the president is a gutless person, or that there is something going on that greatly benefits him for remaining mute.  Is he involved in a criminal act of some type?  Why won’t he act on behalf of the people in CV?  He needs to be forced by a judge
Why don’t you pick up the phone and call Mark or Irwin Levy.  Ask either one of them the interpretation of a Capital Improvement as it applies to CV.  They won’t discuss it with you.  They’ll refer you to their attorneys.  Ask them where it states that Management interprets and makes final conclusions relative to the Millennium Agreement.  There is nothing that gives them that power.
This is a SCAM.  It is the biggest scam that has ever been put forth upon the Village.  And, who wrote the Millennium Agreement?  It was the Management’s group of lawyers who were all friends with one another and the UCO attorney who was forced to roll over.  But, in their secret way to favor the Management Company – they made mistakes in the Millennium’s language.

They won’t acknowledge their mistakes because it exposes their jeopardized position, and we’re talking about millions of dollars of which they become responsible.  The Statue of Limitations relieves them of monetary responsibility, but we can still recover heavy sums, and furthermore, protect our future from their ongoing scam.
Charge the UCO office and tell Israel what needs to be done . . . done NOW.  Or, have him dragged before a judge, and we’ll see if he ignores the law as he has done in Century Village.


Scandals - 11


 More than just interesting, -- it’s shocking! When you conceal items involving money, in my opinion, it’s the same as stealing. Concealing things in Century Village seems to be commonplace among people who control the money, and the good guys continue to wear blindfolds, earplugs and duct tape over their mouths. To put it bluntly, nobody seems to give a fiddler’s f—k as to what is going one. Only when it becomes ridiculously expensive to live in CV, will the moaning and groaning start and then finger pointing.

 Let’s have a look at one particular issue … PAVING! To get a good idea of what I’m talking about, browse Eduardo’s Scandals articles, which can be found on MY VILLAGE BLOGGER. On 9-4-2017, Donald Foster, LCAM, the CV Property Manager, reported: “Paving – Federal Maintenance made repairs to walkways and bus stops at various sections. New job list was submitted to contractor for estimate. Walkway, bus stop, and roadway maintenance is an ongoing project.” Patching of walk ways, bus stops and roadways, has been going on secretly for a considerable period of time. Logically, one has to ask” “Why is that? All of the paving is only about 5 years old.” If the paving was done PROPERLY, it should last between 12 and 15 years under normal wear and tear. Obviously, it isn’t going to last because it is and has been cracking up, wash-boarding, the surfaces are prematurely deteriorating; it is coming up because of lack of bonding, improper heating of bituminous concrete, perhaps improper rolling, and lack of proper preparation of existing pavement.

 When Dorothy Tetro was the CV treasurer, she set up seven individual accounts relating to the budget. In the event there was an emergency, you couldn’t use any of the dedicated money unless you got the Delegate’s approval. Everything was above board and nothing was concealed. When Ed Black took over the treasury, sanctioned by David Israel, all of the monies were moved into a single “Reserve” account. Israel and Black could use the “Reserve” account money for anything they wanted without anyone’s approval. The goal was a concealment of the facts. 

 Get out the blindfolds, earplugs and duct tape over the mouths of the good guys who turn their backs. So, what does all of that mean? It means that when the walkways and roadways fell apart prematurely, Israel and Black took the money, whatever amount of money, and repaired these areas. Where are the competitive bids? Where are the bidding documents? Where are the invoices? Who explains why the work is necessary? No doubt, hundreds of thousands of dollars have already been spent on re-paving the new paving job and this should not have been necessary …. consult any architect or engineer and you’ll get the same response. Mr. Foster states that the “walkway, bus stop and roadway maintenance is an ongoing project.” He tries to wiggle out of a serious statement by using the word “maintenance.” Patch paving a 5 year old re-paving job is hardly maintenance; it’s a cover-up for a failed paving job that was improperly performed. Mr. Foster no doubt ordered patch paving to be done so that when the walkways and roadways are inspected by the defendant’s professionals, it can then be reported that nothing appears to be wrong with any of the “original” work. You don’t need a private detective to figure this one out. Right before your very eyes, the paving contractor will spread dirt free of pebbles and rocks on a large roadway patch so that it will not look new. The dirt swept around will make the new patch blend in with the existing roadway. There is a word for that … deception. Mr. Foster, with the approval of Israel, and Israel’s button pusher – Black, are spending your money. In reality, the paving contractor, M & M Paving Contractors, should be paying for all of this work from day one of walkway, bus stop and roadway failures to present date and beyond because they knew, or should have known, that failures were going to occur rapidly due to labor and material deficiencies. 

 Inasmuch as Israel and Black permitted a single page contract for a paving job costing over five million dollars and disregarding their fiduciary responsibilities, and their actions and non-actions creating an extremely poor paving job, then they should be responsible for the cost of all patch repairs past and future. Israel and Black need to be stopped cold in their tracks and be held fully responsible for concealing the facts and causing extreme monetary damage to the people of Century Village. By the time enough money is saved for a new paving job throughout the Village, the patch paving “ongoing project will probably exceed a half million dollars. Hey you! – with the blindfold, earplugs and duct tape over your mouth, -- who are you going to blame, Vivian Walsh or Kurt Weiss? A better question – when patching of the patching of the re-paving job comes about – who do you hold responsible – anyone that Israel and Black names. 

 I remember what an elderly woman at the Hastings pool once said – “I don’t care if they steal, as long as they don’t steal a lot.” God bless women over 90.

$$$$$$$$$$$$      SIXTEEN GRAND      $$$$$$$$$$$$$
You gotta be kidding ? all that money to wrap lights around the trees at the entrances. They say it's beautification, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder
The lights they are talking about are the kind you see wrapped around everything at a strip club or a bingo hall. 
Those lights were popular for a while, but they seem to be on a decline now as people move out of the disco headspace.
And what about energy conservation? And the rising FPL bill that goes along with the deal?
Let's not make Cv look like a strip club.

A scathing indictment of UCO

A hard hitting, no holds barred article about the mismanagement of CV money and the consequences of the lousy paving job, was published by EDUARDO as part of his "SCANDLES"series of articles.
It seems that UCO is quietly repairing sections of paving under the guise of "Maintenance". That means CV is paying to have it done! M&M Paving, who did the repaving job about 5 yrs ago should be fixing up their job at their expense.
The full article is published in the latest CV Messenger. If you haven't read it yet. You should!
If you haven't read the "Scandals series of articles by EDUARDO You should! You can read them right here on this blog.

Oh, the pompousness of it all!

Oh, the pompousness of it all!! What a pompous ass! Yes indeed, the man is a legend - in his own mind! The writing of a piece of paper and calling it a White Paper. What, does this compare to a statement of policy by the State Department, written with a great many pages or a highly technical and/or awaited paper of policy from the British Foreign Ministry?
 So what is this? This is a piece of paper drawn up by David Israel which contains the very same information stated by Ed Grossman at the previous Delegate Assembly. For daring to state the truth, he had the honor and privilege of being screamed at - literally - by David Israel sitting there on his high horse on the stage, and called a LIAR!! Telling lies. Following that, we had the ugly picture or sight of David Israel screaming and shouting for Security!! Call PBSO!! So frightened is the man for his safety and why? Because he was caught once again in telling lies or in omitting the truth and allowing the anger at being caught to overpower his own brakes?
   So let us examine this "white paper' in all its glory. First why is it here? Well, it was tabled at the last DA to wait till we have more delegates here as it is a major issue that should be voted on by more than a handful of delegates. But then again, that is how David gets his way, by using the scarce ranks of delegates as his go to tool. He did that with term limits as well as other items so here he is again. He is intending to bring this up again on Friday and has so said at a committee meeting.
   Back to the paper. Forced to tell the truth, he now admits that there is value to the building and even though he has tried to disguise it as rebuilding costs, it is actually listed as depreciation value but the man can never stay on the path of truth, can he? And there are all sorts of points that are better than that of the shed, that empty gutted shed in the backwaters of the Village. That little shed of 1274 square feet is alternatively supposed to be for the Rag, for the studio, for AB, has a lack of parking spaces, needs to take up some of the already limited parking with some kind of a hut or shelter for the infinite copies of a paper that few read, but anyhow - that is the story there. So a tad cramped, yes!!! Oh and do not forget that there are trucks from Seacrest that now park there right by their own building.
   Notice that the value is less than the CV building. Notice that once again the truth of the Camden business comes out that once again we are on the hook to fix it all up on our dime even as Levy once again takes the value and the profit as we fix his property. However, it is still cheaper than the alternatives. But wait, there are yet other questions. The Camden building is already done, being painted as we speak, so where and how is that figure arrived at and where is that contract that states all this. As usual, another contract without the delegates being clued in. Another David deed. But let's look at them.
   Camden. Maybe. Telling CV to move out of the Village and we replace the building and WPRF keeps the shed. Maybe. But why would we have to replace the building? There are many other realtors who are busy selling the units. Schechter will not stop this profitable business of his but in any case, he is not the only outlet we have. As far as the building is concerned, I have recently been in there and I noticed no floors sagging or squeaking and so what if they squeak? I smelled no mold and if it were so bad, the workers could and would not stay there or perhaps we should check that out by having code enforcement and the health department come check it out and oops, find yet more lies? A possibility indeed.
   Replacing the building. As I said why replace and why now. We have other issues to take care of first. And another temporary or prefab? What, so it could go merrily rolling along in case of strong hurricanes and I wonder why if this is so bad why it remained in place in wind storms? Hmmmm.
   Finally ,we are told that all this will be done and borne by the Levy family business but quite frankly, every time we are told about a contract by David Israel, there are clauses he keeps secret or adds on after approval. I would like to see that contract already worked out as he so stated in committee and I would like to have that signed in front of everyone after double checking the contract that nothing was changed. And as for the need to find room for the so called paper? Who cares!!! Put it in the Treasurer's office since no one is there or in Bob Marshall's office as he is not there or let them join David in his office as they shill for him anyway!
  White Paper indeed. Pomposity personified and truth be damned again.

What a country this is!!!  People walk around angry as hell, like "Good Morning Madam Sunshine," -- response: "It was, asshole."   They are just pissed off about everything, including, but not limited to:  Statues of Civil War Confederates, Neo-Nazi congregations, suicide bombings around the world, Dump Trump marchers, the horrific weather due to planet warming, people in constant pain and robo-calls.  You could fill ten pages, and then some.  Let's lighten up a skosh and see if this bit of a quip rings your bell for about 5 seconds.  If it does, it was worth it 

   A woman meets a gorgeous man in a bar.  They talk, they connect, they
   end up leaving together.

   They go back to his place, and as he shows her around his apartment, she
   notices that his bedroom is completely packed with sweet cuddly teddy bears.
   Hundreds of cute small bears on a shelf all the way along the floor.  Cuddly
   medium sized ones on a shelf a little higher.  Huge enormous bears on the top
   shelf along the wall.

   The woman is surprised that this guy would have a collection of teddy bears,
   especially one that's so extensive, but she decides not to mention this to him,
   and actually is quite impressed by this evidence of his sensitive side!
   She turns to him, invitingly...they kiss...and then they rip each other's clothes
   off and make hot steamy love,.  After she had this intense night of passion with
   this sensitive guy, and they are lying there together in the afterglow, the woman
   rolls over and asks smiling, "Well how was it for you?"

What is happening out there?

Riots, demonstrations, uprisings, people getting hurt or killed.  God Bless The USA.  It's history.  Do you believe in HISTORY? Was there a Civil War?  You would have to be a little uneducated to not believe the million parts of our nation's history.

Slavery did happen.  We all know that; the wickedness of our history.  So, statues were erected, hundreds of them, revealing the heroic characters of those times when people owned slaves.  Now, they want those statues such as General Robert E. Lee, taken down and stored in some remote barn or cellar, and hidden from public view.  Those were the days of slavery; it was a part of American Culture. These statues, most especially erected in the south, were not praising confederate soldiers for what they did to maintain slavery, but rather, it is all a part of HISTORY, a whole series of many happenings and events.  You can't obliterate history.  You can't change the history books.....it all happened, so why can't they leave the bloody statues alone?  The next thing that you know may be if you hang a confederate flag on your house, you'll be committing a felony.  After that, they'll want to burn history books.

Look, for instance, at President George Washington and President Thomas Jefferson, -- they were big time slave owners for decades.  Were they criminals? Wouldn't it then be proper to blow up the Washington Monument, level the Jefferson Memorial, or drill their faces off of Mount Rushmore?

Can you equate Hitler , the most wicked man in the history of the world, with, say Jefferson Davis, the President of the Confederate States of America? --- an advocate of slavery and states rights?  Of course not, but the historians who twist history, and radicals, want to tear down statues of an historic president.There are literally thousands of pieces of art of Nazis throughout Europe and Asia that remain in the hands of governments and private collectors but they are prohibited  from being prominently displayed.

We can go further, -- much, much further.  ASSUME that Hillary Clinton beat Ding-Dong-Donald.  She's then the President of these United States.  HISTORY clearly reveals that Hillary Clinton did, in fact, own slaves.  It can only be disputed by a "Hillary Clinton interpretation" of hundreds of facts already on record.  So, what do you do with that Hillary Clinton bronze bust and paintings of her face?

I don't really fully understand,  -- why can't these hate people just leave HISTORY alone and not try to change it to something much more ugly.  In other words, leave the frigg'n  statues alone, -- same for George Washington.

Fake news

I am trying to keep up to date on the building swap. It is very hard. It seems to me that this blog is full of information on the building swap. We even got a letter fom Dorothy Jacks' office clearly explaining the value of both properties.

To these remarks Israel says it is lies, all lies. Fake news.

Can you believe him?

Sunday, August 6, 2017

Here we go again!

Rather than address the concerns raised by Ed Grossman about the proposed building swap, the administration, led by you know who, again embarked on their usual tactics of attacking the character of the person raising some serious questions.

Ever since the initiative to swap these two buildings was raised, the administration and the committee have said that there is no assessment or evaluation registered at the county assessors office. That claim was decidedly put to rest when Ed Grossman produced a letter from the Palm Beach County Property Appraiser's office showing that there is a current assessment for both buildings.  The assessments showed that the building and property proposed to be given in trade for the realty office's quarters is worth a fraction of the value. In other words: The swap is unfavorable as far as the interests of CV is concerned. 
Not having a credible answer to the revelation, David Israel immediately pronounced that Ed Grossman is a liar, and also that the County assessor is in the same category. Israel's posting on his blog before the assembly also smeared the reputation of the objectors, but didn't have an answer about the huge difference in value of the buildings and property. A difference that was ignored by the committee, who maintained that the buildings had no assessments. They either didn't know, because they didn't do their homework, or hid the real truth in their quest to push this initiative forward. 
It's a disgrace that an elected leader and his so called "team "  would resort to tactics like this. It's a shame that the committee would accept the distortion or concealment of the facts without so much as a whimper.   
When another concerned resident spoke up at the assembly. Israel told him to keep quiet or he would bring up some dirt on him. That is a very troubling statement. If there is something about the delegate that is of concern about his character, Israel should reveal it, Not use it to intimidate him into silence.
The assembly turned into a circus when Ed Grossman approached the committee on the stage and was accused of perhaps carrying a gun and suggesting he is plotting an assassination. That is one of the most ridiculous statements ever heard .  Ed Grossman has never threatened anyone. Israel's asinine squealing to call the Sheriff was just a tactic to avoid the questions and evade having to answer why he is not furnishing the residents with the whole story. He didn't answer any concerns about anything. When challenged as to why the Atlantic Broadband contract was altered after the vote, his only reply was to grunt and change the subject. 
We can look forward to the usual finger pointing and accusations of people disrupting the meetings for some vicarious thrill.  We can look forward to not getting any answers to the issues being raised. It's just the way David Israel and his team do business. Israel implied that the objectors are just causing trouble, and trying to shut down the whole initiative to swap buildings, this is another gross misrepresentation of the facts. The real idea behind the objections is to make sure that CV is getting a good deal in the swap. Not just to destroy the whole thing.
Keep in mind that the whole swap is about giving Atlantic Broadband space at $1.00 a square foot, a clause that was illegally entered into the contract after the ratification vote at he Delegates Assembly. 
Keep in mind that Israel attempted to deny the residents a vote on the matter by pushing a motion at the committee to put the decisions in the hands of the UCO officers, leaving the residents out of it. He voted in favor while the rest of the committee turned it down.
Keep in mind that if this piece of property is acquired by WPRF, or whoever it is that the deed will go to, it's gone forever. When the time comes that CV residents want to buy out the Levy family, it's another asset that adds to the value of their holdings. It's another asset that will add a nice increase to their asking price. 
Keep in mind that the construction shack that CV will acquire has a considerable tax bill attached to it, something the realty building does not have attached to it. When Atlantic broadband is done with it, CV is going to be left with .... What ? A building and property that really has not much going for it that will need ongoing maintenance, taxes and utilities. 
Keep in mind that the original deal giving the realty company the use of the building on East Drive, gave the village newspaper free use of space at another facility owned by WPRF. Now that the original deal is compromised due to the building being unfit for occupancy, the newspaper is using space in the clubhouse, space that all residents pay for. That's not the deal ! There's no quid pro quo there. CV realty has a pretty good deal and still gets to use their building pretty much for free, while we are expected to pay for the facilities to use the clubhouse for the paper. That's not the way it works! WPRF agreed to give the paper free space , that is not happening, the terms of the agreement are void, there is no agreement as long as WPRF doesn't hold up their end of the bargain.
It would be better for CV to get a 99 year lease at a dollar a year on the construction shack, just like the deal that the realty company enjoys, do their own renovations, and keep the property on East Drive. 

The latest is that this was put on delay to be taken cared of at a  later date. - Gary

I have been forbidden from writing and answering on Dave's blog. If you read his current post you will see that he is attacking the malcontents for having an opinion on the status of his real estate swap. An opinion which is wrong and is bordering on lies.

Let's get it straight. Israel can react to anything he wants on 'My Village Blogger' but I am not allowed to post on his blog.

His opinions are allowed on My Village Blogger, but my thoughts are not allowed on his very private blog.

So David Israel is allowed to state his opinions on My Blog, but my opinions are not allowed on his.

This is typical of the way the Dictator thinks and acts.

Wrong and Sad.
