There was a very good reason I didn’t give the money to the Court

July 20, 2010, I signed a stip agreement with the Calello Agency in the presence of their lawyer, that in return for paying my July rent , they’d make repairs and exterminate bedbugs by the end of July. That didn’t happen, as I knew it would go down that way.

On Aug 2, I hand-delivered this letter:

August 2, 2010
[Address removed]
Dear M—,
Under the terms of the stip we (You, the Agency Lawyer and I) signed on 20 July 2010, certain conditions were to me be met in order for the rent of July 2010 t be paid.
My July/August rent is now in escrow pending the complete fulfillment of the July 20 stip.

Unfortunately, there is more to that stip than simply providing me that which should have been provided in March when I took possession of my apartment located at [address removed], namely my mailbox key; I am still awaiting the following portions of the stip to be addressed:
The broken window
the torn screen
the fire escape (Charlie coming in with a workman to “measure” or any other nonsense meant to assuage me that it is being addressed will not be considered addressing this safety issue)
The bedbugs. Under NJ state law, you are obligated to deal immediately with the issue, not three plus months or longer after being informed of the infestation. Again, Charlie coming in to improperly deal with this issue will not be considered to be fulfilling the stip. The chemical used is highly toxic, and if the way Charlie “sprayed” for roaches is an indication, the result will only bed bugs that are more resistant to the chemical than they are at present.

If you or Charlie cannot reach me by phone, it takes little effort for Charlie to stop by and slide a note under my door regarding the above issues. Unless of course, Charlie   (or you) prefers to be required by Court order to act.

Sincerely yours,
[my signature]

Please note, I indicated in the letter, that I was withholding both July and August as they had not honored the agreement. There was no objection to my withholding my July rent at that time. Fast forward to August 13, 2 days after they got around to repairing the windows and “exterminating”: I was mailed a three day notice to quit for, get this; NON-PAYMENT OF RENT. They went to get the withheld monies from the court without completing the terms of the Stip – fixing the fire escape, and got spanked.To make it better, Charlie intimated, that they weren’t going to make the fire escape repair, saying that the struts under the landing was sufficient.

The same day as I received the letter, I was the recipient of this as well:

The pestcide sure worked, Charlie

I’m still being bit. They want me out. I’m looking for relief for the breach of contract.

Activism, Rumours Gin Mill, Theocracy NO

Pray for (or Prey On) Newark?

Pray for Newark seeks not to make our streets safer, but to make Newark a Christian Theocratic city as it was in its founding in 1666. As a non-Christian, this concerns me, Mr Mayor. You have endorsed the program, but Mr. Mayor, are you aware that the program is tied to the “Kill the Gays Movement in Uganda? from a current post about PfN:

Pray for Newark was founded by Newark suburb resident Lloyd Turner, who in October 2008 spoke at an Argentina conference of the International Transformation Network (ITN), whose CEO Ed Silvoso wrote, in his 2007 book, Transformation: Change the Marketplace and You Change the World, that homosexuality is caused by demon possession and that HIV and AIDS can be cured through faith healing and prayer. According to Silvoso, the entire national police force of the Philippines is being indoctrinated in this ideology.

You are a vocal supporter of GLBT Rights, yet, you have endorsed these medival minded people?
Demon possession? Really, Mr. Mayor? or uses military language to describe the work?  That credits Jesus with the drop in crime? Does that imply that only non-Christians are dying here?

supports the “Seven Moutains” program which calls for born-again Christians to take control of businesses and governments?

here are 7 Mountains of Influence in Culture…
In 1975, Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade, and Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth With a Mission, had lunch together in Colorado. God simultaneously gave each of these change agents a message to give to the other. During that same time frame Francis Schaeffer was given a similar message. That message was that if we are to impact any nation for Jesus Christ, then we would have to affect the seven spheres, or mountains of society that are the pillars of any society. These seven mountains are business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, the family and religion. :

Simply because almost everything and everyone “pray‐able” has an address somewhere. Your family. Your neighbors. Your workplace. Your school. Your church. Your investments. And so on.

When you ADOPT YOUR STREET, you are signing on to bless, fellowship with and minister to the felt needs of your community and those around you, and when the power and presence of the Lord touches them in some way, proclaim to them that it has a name. It’s called the kingdom of God, and it has come near to them. We call it “prayer evangelism” – talking to God about others before you talk to others about God. When you ADOPT YOUR STREET, you will be linking up with a vast army of people just like you in your own community and all around the world who are doing the very same thing. You will be able to find them on the site’s virtual map and you will be able to connect with them through comments and forums. You will never be alone.

Mr. Mayor, How can you claim to support Gay Rights, when Prayer For Newark and its ilk do not. IN fact, consider it to be “demon possession” what do they consider us non-Christians? They are very quiet about that. Mr. Mayor, if a Muslim organization came to you for support in their efforts to “take back the streets for Allah” and make them safer, would you endorse that?

“Pray for Newark” has MAPPED our city, Mr. Mayor. That means, they know where every church, mosque, synagogue, stores that sell merchandise they find “aberrant” are located. If they infiltrate the Police Department, how safe will the LGBT Community or anyone not on the 7 Mountain plan feel? They want to TAKE CONTROL OF NEWARK. CULTURALLY, SPIRITUALLY AND ECONOMICALLY.

Now, what was that about “none may buy or sell….”?
