Bill Clinton Rushed to New York Hospital


Bill Clinton Has Coronary Artery Procedure!

Bill Clinton the former President was rushed to the hospital Thursday after experiencing pains in his chest.  Doctors did surgery placing two stents in his coronary artery, a close source adviser, Douglas Band, said Clinton was doing well after undergoing the procedure at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Bill Clinton had quadruple bypass surgery in 2004 to open four blocked arteries and has been doing well since then until now.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, United States Secretary of State met with President Obama as scheduled on Thursday and then rushed to the hospital to be by her husband’s bedside with their daughter Chelsea.

The next Morning Bill Clinton left the New York Hospital and went home to Chappaqua about 45 minutes North of New York City, three SUV’s with tinted windows pulled through the gates of his home in Chappaqua Friday Morning at 7:45 a.m..

Douglas Band said in a statement that Bill Clinton left New York Presbyterian Hospital in excellent health and he looks forward in the days ahead to getting back to work at his Foundation helping Haiti with recovery efforts and raising relief funds.

Cardiologist Allan Schwartz said he could be back at work by Monday, he had a clogged heart artery opened after suffering discomfort in the chest, he had chest pains and he had a medical procedure, two stents, a tiny mesh were placed inside the artery and this procedure is quite common for people with severe heart disease.  Bill Clinton had quadruple bypass surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital more than five years ago.

MTA Buses Handicap To Yonkers Casino


Handicap people are losing their disability checks at the Yonkers casino, and the MTA is busing them there from all over the Metro Area.  The Westchester News.Com broke the story and now it hit the networks and airwaves:

NYC Transit began taking the disabled to Yonkers’ casino last year after the federal government said it had to cross into Westchester County, officials say.

For years, NYC Transit only provided trips to the disabled within the five boroughs.

The federal Transit Administration two years ago said the Americans with Disabilities Act required that Access-A-Ride take passengers just over the Bronx border into a swath of Westchester, MTA spokesman Jeremy Soffin said.

The Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway is near the Woodlawn and Wakefield sections of the Bronx.

I find this shocking. Everything is wrong with such an arrangement.

1) Access-A-Ride is supposed to be a substitute for the regular bus and subway for those whose disabilities prevent them from using it. Since when did NYCT buses and subway start going to Yonkers?

2) At a cost of $66 per person per ride, the Access-A-Ride service is a massive loss-making enterprise that survives only because it would be political suicide to argue for it to be cut. You would think that the disabled would keep this in mind and use the service for essential trips, such as medical appointments, groceries and, for children, going to school (assuming that no alternative, such as ADA-compliant buses, exist). Instead, people rich enough to gamble away half their money are using it to ride to casinos to do precisely that, while the ordinary taxpayer pays the $63.75 that is not covered by a MetroCard swipe. If the riders have so much disposable income, they should take a taxi or livery cab instead.

3) This frivolous use of the service keeps vehicles occupied and unable to serve those with a more debilitating condition or those needing to make emergency trips.

4) The $450 million yearly Access-A-Ride bill keeps the  from improving other services (e.g. bus rapid transit, subway station rehabs etc), that might provide alternatives to disabled people.

Department Of Labor Meltdown


Department Of Labor Meltdown

They’re blowing off people who are filing claims, these people lost their jobs and are laid off, these are unemployed Americans who are being ignored.  On the phone, New York State has an animated phone robot sending people on a wild goose chase, they pawn them off, back and forth to each other, the website tells you to call the New York State Department Of Labor.  When they call they get an animated phone robot.  They tell them to go to the website, but, not everyone knows how to use a computer. It takes about 3 days to get through to a real person and they pass you onto an animated robot, and it starts all over again, and when you call back all phone lines are busy and then another animated phone robot is saying  “Call Back Later.”

A Christmas Story


When my mother was a teenager, she lost her youngest Uncle, when the Japs attacked Pearl Harbor, his name was Charlie Petrone, and every Christmas Eve my mother played that song over and over, “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” and she sat there and cried and talked about what a great person Uncle Charlie was,  and she kept his memory alive every Christmas, that’s the reality of war.  I will never forget that Uncle Charlie never made it home, and till this day every time I hear that song it reminds of my Uncle Charlie, I never got to meet.

Since 911, I personally stopped riding the subways in New York, and unless I really need too, then I will.  The television news coverage about the terrorist has totally convinced me that the subways are the terrorists playground,  and New York is a danger zone.  The News coverage has convinced me that it’s not about if, it’s about when its going to happen, hopefully it won’t happen, but if it does, God be with us, and keep His Holy Angels charge over us and our loved ones.

Recently, my husband and I were flying back from Florida, and the pilot announced for everyone to buckle their seat-belts for landing-and then three men got up to use the bathroom at the same time, and stood up in front of the plane for quite sometime.

I started thinking, not good, they might be terrorist, not good, and then whispered to my husband, “If their terrorist they’re going down.”  Well, being as it may, they were just three men with weak bladders.  Trust me, I was whispering to my husband, “we have to take them down before they put the red bandana on their heads, and I wasn’t kidding. I was thinking of what I could use as a weapon against them, it was a horrible feeling.  I don’t like flying. I don’t feel safe.  People laugh when I tell them the story, but I’m serious.

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM ALL OF US

Empire City Casino Beware It’s A Scam


The Biggest Empire City Casino Scam

You Must Read this Updated Story on

The Westchester News.Com

You heard it here first on The Westchester News.Com

The Empire City Casino Scam in Yonkers, New York: Consumers Beware this casino is scamming the people with lots of false advertising and marketing tactics that are one big lie, this casino is a scam.

People have shared their personal feelings about the Empire City Casino in Yonkers, New York, and they feel that this casino is robbing them and using false marketing tactics and false advertisement on the radio 106.7 and cable channels and Fox 5 network.  The casino is enticing people to come there to gamble, making them think they’ll win lots of money.  The machines at this casino don’t payout a lot of money and people are losing their shirts in this place.  One woman told me she spent her entire paycheck tonight, another said it’s sad what they’re doing to the people, they’re robbing the people, they’re robbing them of their hard earned cash.  The people running this casino are a bunch of thieves and New York State should shut this casino down.  They’re scamming the people in this place and it starts at the management level down.  They think the people are stupid, and they spend everyday and night laughing sitting behind those cameras in the ceiling, they sit there watching all the people lose hundreds of dollars, all the peoples money is gone just like that sucked up into these vacuum slot machines.  They just take everybody’s money.  Its like you’re flushing your money down the toilet.

New Yorkers are the saddest people in the United States and this is the reason “Our Government is robbing us and they’re taking advantage of us, a source said,  “You can’t even get a free beer in this place, it’s terrible.”

Empire City Casino is a scam, a close source said, they’re scamming the people out of hundreds and hundreds of dollars.  An investigation by the FBI is needed because behind the scenes at this Casino, it’s one huge scam.

It’s important for me to share my experiences with you,  these are personal experiences that I had at the Empire City Casino.  Therefore, please allow me to say this when I left the casino the other night I was completely in tears.  Listen carefully because I am about to give you some valuable information about the people who patronize this casino.  Most people who walk through the doors of Empire City Casino walkout losers, and the most powerful truth is this,  you will absolutely “Not” win any money in this place, and if you do win, you will definitely “Not” walkout the door with your winnings.

Listen Carefully, if or when you do win about $20.00 dollars on a machine take it and run with it because what will follow that deceiving little win is a big loss, the machine will discreetly go cold quickly.  You will end up losing every penny in your pocket and then you will go to the ATM and take more money out, you’ll spend more and more,  just to win your money back.   This casino is robbing the patrons blind and in the blink of an eye your money is gone, just like that, it’s gone.

Recently, I lost $100.00 dollars, and let me tell you it was painful to walkout of that casino without anything to show for it, not even enjoyment or a little thrill, and literally I was in tears.  My husband and I ended up in an argument because I wanted to keep playing and keep trying to win our money back, unfortunately, we were like most of the other couples who lose their money and end up arguing for the same reason, losing money.

My advice to anyone who likes to play slot machines, if you have a lot of money to throw away, than, go to Empire City Casino.   This casino has a lot of bells and whistles, but there is no payout, it’s all smoke and mirrors.  When I listen to all the people on the bus ride to the parking lot, I could hear the same painful tone in their voices,  full of disappointment and worry.  When everyone walks through the doors of this casino, it starts out exciting and fun, but by the end of the night, everyone has tired long faces.

Please read the story below, every bit of it is the truth about Empire City Casino.  Don’t let this casino rob you of your hard earned cash.  Play Wisely!  Beware of the win because the loss will rapidly follow.

This story is a story you must read, if you gamble and you can’t seem to win, if you have spent $20.00 dollars or $200.00 dollars, the odds are the more you spend the more you will lose at Empire Casino.  The patrons come in bus loads from Long Island, and many come from the Bronx weekly to try their luck at winning a Jackpot.  Unfortunately, almost everybody leaves broke, aside from a few smart ones, who play fugal.  If anyone wins in this Casino they just end up putting it back into the machines.  The casino can bring in 75 million in one night!  They advertise on Fox News at Ten, and 106.7 radio.  The element has changed at the casino and there is a hostile environment among the employees, although,  most of the security guards are upbeat, friendly and try to be helpful and want to do the right thing for the patrons, but unfortunately,  they are limited by casino management, and are told to mislead patrons and look the other way, a close source told The Westchester News.

The Teamsters Union Local 456 is trying to take control of the Security Guards by trying  to recruit the Casino Security Guards into Local 456.  The Teamsters Local 456 have men out of work who have been in this union for 30 years and not working, men without steady work, no jobs and no power.

The people that I have interviewed in the past year are extremely disappointed in the service, and one hispanic man told me that a black woman screamed at him for calling her to help him with the machine, she was talking to a security guard laughing, and he interrupted her conversation, and she cursed at him.   Then another hispanic woman told me when she took the shuttle bus to her car in the parking lot, the bus driver a black man was very rude and nasty to her.  Then one night I had the honor to meet that bus driver, and trust me, she wasn’t exaggerating.  The parking lot could be a scary place, drunk men pissing on people’s cars, vomiting, and rudeness is just a few of the observances.

The bathroom’s smell like urine at times, one woman said they didn’t have proper disinfectant for the bathrooms.  The women’s bathroom has urine all over the seats, women are not using the toilet seat covers, they are pissing all over the seats and floor, it’s really disgusting.  This could be a disease incubator because thousands of people are using these facilities, and without the proper cleaning products, people could end up spreading diseases. Do they wash down the seats and machines daily?  This is disgusting hygiene, and it’s not only happening at the Empire Casino, it’s happening all over.  Why do women urinate on the toilet seats?  Who does this?

This is a complete story about the Empire State Casino at Yonkers Racetrack, it’s about the truth,  what really goes on behind the scenes, the screens, and behind the machines at Empire Casino.  Why do the slot machine “Screens” roll out of  control when people are playing them?  Well, I recall that’s why they are under investigation for fixing a contest, and that’s what happened when a woman won twice two times in a row.

The contestants complained and felt the contest was fixed, and witnesses came forward acknowledging that the “Empire Casino Marketing Department” is shady and contests can easily be fixed with these computerized games.  My advice to anyone going to any Casino, just go to play for fun, don’t go thinking you’re gonna win big because the odds are not in your favor.  The only thing that you are going to try to win, is your hardworking money back.

Ex- employees have come forward saying that they have lost their jobs for complaining.  The financial numbers are not meeting up, and security lay-offs have been discussed, this casino needs more security officers.  Patrons have to pay for drinks, a Martini is $9 dollars, Beer $5 dollars, Rum & Coke $7 dollars.  There is no happy hour in this place. The Empire Casino can be fun for the moment, it’s a lot of bells and whistles and smoke and mirrors, and party goers beware it’s a very costly night.  There has been fights inside the casino, a man was brought out in an Ambulance after passing out one night and that can be scary when you are dealing with crowds of this multitude, a male kicked the taxi sign in anger and then got on a packed bus, no security to be found. People fighting over handicap parking and the list of complaints continues to go on and on. However, all the security guards have always made me and my crew feel comfortable, but, sometimes the crowd can get a little rough, you have to keep your guard up at all times at this casino.

The Empire Casino Television Commercial that you see advertised is very misleading to the public. The element has changed there it’s a stressed environment.  There are less whites going there on a daily basis, the majority of its clientele are blacks and hispanics. The Latino music is very loud.  The food is not that good either, the buffet tastes like dried up leftovers, the buffet had dried up rice and beans, mac and cheese,  beef, and more, it seems that the casino is catering to a Latino clientele.  The Restaurant buffet manager is a very nice man, however, we did tell him about complaints that we received from patrons, and about the restaurant service and quality of the food, and when we returned to casino restaurant after a couple of weeks, the casino did nothing about any of the complaints, absolutely nothing was done.  Now,  about the other restaurant at the casino, its expensive, but from what I understand you can get a good steak for $39.99 a person, although everything on the menu is a’ la carte.  The Casino knows how to lore people in by sending the locals $5 & $10 dollar coupons monthly for a free play, and the discount coupons are to eat in the cafeteria, by the way the pizza is pretty good, and they hand out cheap gifts, meanwhile, people are maxing out their credit cards to try and win back their losses.

You Can Shout About It! Empire Casino Rant

The best advice I can give you is if you win a few bucks, get out leave, hold on to your wallets tight. It’s definitely over crowded inside the casino, once a machine pays it will then suck you in and in the end, you will definitely lose a lot of money if you are not careful, and the parking lot has it’s  problems too.  People are coming out of the casino long faced, feeling deceived, angry, depressed and broke.  The slot machines hypnotize you, did you hear me, I’ll say it again, the slot machines hypnotize you, so make it a point to print out your ticket when you win, and put a smaller bill in the slot machine, if you decide to keep playing the same machine.

There is a lot of shady things going on in this casino, we saw it on a couple of occasions there was definitely scamming going on.  People put a twenties into the slot machine, then, they hit the button and they win, then they quickly print the winnings out of the slot machine, and quickly put another twenty into the slot machine, taken off the pile of twenties in their hand and they continue this method over and over and in a matter of minutes they’ve won large amounts of money, and we reported it to the management of the casino.  We wrote down the time, the number of the machine, and the day and a description of the people, and we gave it to the management so they can investigate this scam.   Remember,  the casino has plenty of camera’s up in the ceiling, it’s too bad the security officials who sit behind those camera’s don’t pay attention to the shady activity going on.  They should react quickly, but they don’t.  Recently, it was told to The Westchester News that security is investigating a lot of this shady activity that is going on inside and outside the casino.  We’ll keep you posted on the scams that we are informed about day to day.

Instead of going to this casino, you might want to go play bingo, where you can control your spending or maybe you can buy yourself something special, go see a show in New York, something that can make you happy inside, something you can hold dear in your heart as a special memory, something like an entertaining movie or a Broadway show or an oldies show or a nice quiet dinner, maybe something like Westchester Broadway Theater,  just somewhere nice or maybe you can give your money to your children or maybe use the money to pay for your children’s education because this casino certainly isn’t going to pay for your children’s education or your household bills.   Please think about how you’re throwing your money away, think.

Local politicians have their fundraisers at Empire City Casino, recently, Nick Spano had a fundraiser at the Casino in there VIP room.   I wonder who paid the bill?  Did the taxpayer pay for his political party or does the casino comp these elected officials or former officials?  Did the casino do it for free?   Where is all the money that is supposed to be going into the Yonkers Schools from the profits of this casino, I’ll say it again 75 million in one night!  Where is it?  Yonkers School System is the worst and The Westchester News broke the story WATCH THE VIDEO.

One customer said,  “You cannot win in this place, forget about it.”  They come from all over to Yonkers Empire City Casino, and they all say the same thing you can’t win.   The General Manager Bob is a very nice guy, but that doesn’t change the fact that people are not happy with their visit to this Casino.  Patrons are getting robbed, but the security management thinks it’s not the casino’s fault because these patrons are losing there money at their own free will.  We say it’s not the patrons fault because if they drop their wallets on the floor and management doesn’t think that their obligated to return it, somethings wrong, management is misleading the public.


Remember, this guy Fredrick Zappulla he killed his roommate in New York City, and then he cleaned himself up and came to Yonkers to play the slots before getting arrested.  Can Yonkers get any worse?  Geeze!

Empire City Casino in Yonkers is a losers playground it reeks of disappointments, losses and despair.

One thing that I saw there that I though was very sweet was a mentally challenged adult group home, and a mentally challenged man started screaming I won, I won, I win the money, I won, and he might have won $300.00 dollars on a .75 cents bet.  I was so happy for him, and it made me feel good inside to see that precious moment.  I don’t know if he really won, but if he did, good for him, if he didn’t shame on Empire City Casino and New York State Officials for targeting the mentally challenged group homes who are coming there in bus loads, shame on this casino for taking advantage of the slow and disabled.

Handicap people are losing their disability checks at the Yonkers casino, and the MTA is busing them there from all over the Metro Area.  The Westchester News.Com broke the story and now it hit the networks and airwaves:
