HOW THE STEINBRENNER SCAM WORKS & WHY
TABACCO: I know Michael Bloomberg doesn’t need the Money, but Capitalism is all he knows. So for 3 Terms, Bloomberg has made Real Estate BACKROOM DEALS to benefit himself. I guess that adage is valid,
“You Can Never Be Too Thin Or Too Rich!”
The New York Yankees cannot move ANYWHERE!
How does the Jersey Yankees strike you? I thought not!
How does the Tokyo Yankees strike you? I thought not!
How about the Phoenix Yankees, does that make the cut? I thought not!
Neither does the Boston Yankees, the Brooklyn Yankees, the Staten Island Yankees, the Texas Yankees or any other Aberration! The Yankees cannot get out of the Bronx even if they wanted to! And, trust me, the Yankees didn’t want to!
But the Yankees wanted a New Yankee Stadium badly, respects to Babe Ruth and all that. The Steinbrenners had 2 Choices:
1 – The Yankees could build the Stadium themselves for $1.3 Billion, or
2 – The Yankees could get the Taxpayers to pay for half of it!
Needless to say, the Yankees selected Option 2. It was a lot cheaper for them. How is that? Well, if the Yankees built their own Stadium (Option 1), they would have spent $1.3 Billion of their own money.
In selecting Option 2, the Steinbrenners had to pay Mike Bloomberg a Service Charge (under the table of course) – a lot less than $450 Million both the Yankees and the Voters had to ante up. The Yankees never wanted to move to Tokyo, NYC or NJ. Those were simply “red herrings” to put fear in the hearts of Bronxites and New Yorkers!
The Yankees needed a RED HERING and a high-powered Politician to effect it! They got both!
But to get the DEAL, Mayor Bloomberg had to SELL NEW YORKERS the idea that the Yankees might move out of New York. FEAR is the best Motivator. You scare people, and you can initiate Wars or build humongous Sports Stadiums. No, the Idea was NOT ORIGINAL. You might research the Deal in your own Metropolitan Area, supported by Fear-Mongering Politicos!
So now you know how Big Sports Stadiums in Large Metropolitan Areas are financed!
HOW VANESSA BAIRD-STREETER GOT TO PLAY STEINBRENNER BALL WITH THE BIG BOYS – ON A SMALLER SCALE OF COURSE
Vanessa inherited her Dancing Biz from her mother. Nothing unusual about that! But Vanessa had big plans. Big Plans involved making friends with Politicians in high places. So Vanessa set her sights on a high-profile, up and comer in the Democratic Party. Without even so much as a Screwdriver or a Corkscrew, Vanessa twisted her way into Power, undeniable References and mahvelous referrals. That Powerful Politico has moved on to even greater heights, but Vanessa’s References are still A-Rated!

2 OLDEST PROFESSIONS
FOR FUN & PROFIT !
Similar to the Steinbrenners’ in Basics, but different in Tactics, Vanessa has been plying the same scheme all over Long Island. She’s been excised from better places than Wyandanch. Not exactly excised, more pay for the privileges or make like a tree and leave!
The Venettes sport 4 different Dance Programs, which are paid for by the Parents of the Tykes, who are Vanessa’s Danseurs. Then there is a Stiff 10-ticket purchase to be made for Graduation Day. Most Wyandanch Parents cannot afford the Gratuities – in fact, few actually do. Personally I know of 4 – 2 of which are on the B.O.E. Not exactly Parents themselves, they do have small relatives, who participate in the Venettes. Because of their VESTED INTERESTS in the VENETTES,
Charlie Reed and
should RECUSE themselves, but don’t hold your breath waiting for that!
Formerly Charlie Reed’s daughter was a Venette. Now he has another little relative who is. Shirley Baker has several Venettes in her Klan. Can you say, “Vested Interests”! Can you say, “Recuse yourselves!”
Let’s get down to Brass Tacks!
Shirley Baker, at July 10th Meeting, spoke up in an embarrassed way to permit the Venettes to use the School, destroy the wood flooring, cost the Schools money for Security Guards on Saturdays, who would NOT be there or paid were it not for the Venettes. Then there’s Insurance etc. The Cost is
payable by Vanessa Baird-Streeter.
But Shirley and Charlie are angling to get that FEE FORGIVEN. That means the VENETTES, a Capitalist Organization, which charges PARENTS, would get to use the School without paying a dime!
Vanessa got away with it in Amityville.
Vanessa got away with it in Deer Park.
She got away with it in other communities before she hoodwinked Wyandanch!
For the past 2 years, the Venettes have paid the Wyandanch School NOTHING; but Vanessa gave Donations to 1st Baptist Church! Now where have we heard that name before! That’s how Vanessa has been SCAMMING THE COMMUNITY!
If she gets away without paying a dime this coming year, she will undoubtedly make another
KICKBACK, err “Donation” to the 1st Baptist Church of Wyandanch. But in addition, would anyone like to bet against Charlie Reed’s little relative and Shirley Baker’s little relatives getting BIG DISCOUNTS from the VENETTES if not a
That’s how POLITICAL CORRUPTION works, folks! Not just in NYC, but in Wyandanch and everywhere else in America!

I’ll Scratch Yours)
We need your ATTENDANCE on Wednesday, July 17th at 7pm, Wyandanch Administration Building. Show your DISPLEASURE with the VENETTES, with Charlie Reed, with Shirley Baker and any of the other B.O.E. MEMBERS, who vote to EXCISE THE $64,699.00 FEE the Venettes should pay to exploit the School!
Charlie Reed has learned the Art of Political Doubletalk – he speaks in Generalizations while saying Nothing! Shirley Baker just looks like a “Deer in the Headlights” Run-of-the-Mill CROOK!
Come on, Charlie Reed, we want names of Wyandanch Parents, whose tykes have received those $3,000.00 Venette Scholarships! And we want PROOF, not just your Word!
Of the 500+ Venettes, I’ll bet you cannot find 10 that actually live in Wyandanch! C’mon, Charlie Reed, we want PROOF, not PONTIFICATIONS!

I filter out the irrelevancies and trivialities to save both the time and effort of my Readers and bring consternation to the enemies of Truth & Fairness! When you read Tabacco, if you don’t learn something NEW, I’ve wasted your time.
