Justice for Trayvon Martin
Thursday, February 23, 2012
Well the Shelters are overflowing because PEOPLE have lost their jobs and their homes and their minds and they have abandoned their pets in apartments, on the streets, and at the shelters ...."Shelter" has become Death Camp for man's best friend. I could go on and on. I write this with passion and not intellect....I understand the odds and the problems and all of it But I don't care...this has to STOP ...Some Things are Just Wrong and this is one of them.
What happens to the animals is what the 1% wants to do with us make no mistake about it.
CarolynBBaker@ OccupyWallSt "4 Million dogs and cats are Executed in US each Year. New York's ACC are Kill Centers....Part of this problem is that people have lost their jobs and their homes and they dump their dogs and cats at ACC hoping that they will be taken care of INSTEAD THEY ARE EXECUTED BY THE HUNDREDS/THOUSANDS.
There is a cadre of Rescue groups and individuals who do their best to Snatch these animals off of Death Row...but lets say there are 20dogs to die we can save 5 ....15 dogs of which 12 have no more than a cold if that ....Are Killed. The people just brought down a bill supported by ASPCA New York Assembly Bill A05449A, which would shorten the hold period (so if your dog was lost by the time you got to the shelter the dog is dead) and add psychological pain as a Kill buzz word. We should all be Executed by these standards.
We need Occupy Wall Street to Occupy the death chambers....bring in food and supplies and help the volunteers care for the animals....bring in Occupy Vets to help care for the animals and bring the press in to EXPOSE this holocaust.....Maybe full tilt on the worse one (Brooklyn) and small watch group at the others occupying the death chambers so they don't transfer dogs to Kill. This needs to be done so that the animals don't suffer ....that people can still adopt...rescue/foster...maybe work with some of the advocate suggested rescue groups...
What they do to the animals they will do to us. I am in Los Angeles...lala land....NY has the balls to pull this off and then maybe it would take off around the country and these dogs would not have died in vain or to make "soap"! "
PS. The ASPCA whose fabulous office is close to the Manhattan shelter...is the biggest POS....they do massive publicity of stopping puppy mills etc. but if those dogs get into ACC shelters they die...They support legislation to Kill quicker and they unite with Animal Abusers....and they use donations for heavy overhead!....Somethings Just Aren't right
"We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals... In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth." Henry Beston
PS. 2/24 Susan Chana Lask, Esq. I said it before and I'll say it again; for every puppy and dog they've killed, we will give them a name, and represent them by name in court. As of today, I'm behind and on NYC's Death Row Dogs issue. HELLO AC&C, MEET SUSAN CHANA LASK AND ALL THE THE DOGS YOU EUTHANIZED THIS YEAR.
Like I said all the balls of the country are in NY...please export used ones...especially to Cali!

I am going to tell the story of Glorya Kaufman a Los Angeles philanthropist that was my client beginning in late 2007. Glorya Kaufman in spirit mirrors the famed Leona Helmsley, the notorious Queen of Mean it is amazing. I remembered when maids and others came forth and talked about what a bitch Leona was and how she victimized people. The Helmsleys (he died and she had to serve the time) spent 8 million dollars on their dream estate and then refused to pay the group of contractors, including decorators, gardeners, painters and landscapers, for their hard labor and materials, they also refused to pay taxes on the improvements and proper taxes on the value of the estate.
I almost dropped my teeth....This is Glorya Kaufman this is her estate, this is her pledge to UCLA for the Glorya Kaufman Hall , this is the State of California, this is the County of Los Angeles , she hates to pay people and she hates to pay taxes and she victimizes people who have worked or provided services for her and she victimizes the taxpayers of the state of California and the County and City of Los Angeles. Anyway read the Leona story and you'll catch a hint of what I mean.
Glorya Kaufman under the Glorya Kaufman Dance Foundation has made major donations to Inner City Arts, Mar Vista Family Center, Alvin Ailey Dance Theater, and the coup de grace Glorya Kaufman presents Dance at the Music Center. Well I orchestrated all of that under my marketing and development company using 30+ years experience brand marketing in the entertainment industry. I created the Glorya Kaufman Dance Foundation and created Glorya Kaufman as the "Dancing Philanthropist". These donations were made 'expressly' to elevate; her profile in the philanthropic community, her negative image as a shrew, a racist, a homophobe and a deadbeat with her additional desire for this cleansing and image raising would help her in her attempts to deprive her children and grandchildren of the family estate.
Hmmm, after having successfully developed unknown artists this was great... here was money that could be used to help children, dancers, etc. Perfect for me....having worked with difficult artists I could suffer through the nightmare of GK when the end result was kids and dancers with dreams helped forever! Did I mention these were 'endowments'? You may think I'm kidding about the 'I did this' but Glorya is functionally illiterate and if I was a psychiatrist I would say bi-polar so that meant content and speeches and co-interviewing etc....fighting about hair,makeup and clothing everything . A judge and at least one doctor agree with me that she needed help. The really cuckoo won't get help especially rich,mean and cuckoo.
Anyway, right after GK received major accolades and press saving the Dance division of the Music Center. She freaked out and tried to get rid of people and close down the foundation because she had made a pledge of 20 million and she wanted out of it (I've got the emails) Firing me in her mind and dissolving the foundation was a plan that she and her so called daughter (wink) Debbie Schwartz another idiot (I was at that time secretary of the foundation) would get her out of the pledge with all the publicity intact (she stopped paying UCLA owing 2million but that's for later).... she couldn't but as the year progressed she just stopped paying people and firing them ignoring contracts etc. from attorneys to gardeners....myself and Solters and Digney who I had brought to the project were included. Glorya ended owing me 35k on my contract and 35k in expenses which included her phone service and mail service for the foundation and foundation travel -including GK's. That wasn't enough,she then began to defame me with my contacts, including perjury with linkdin and WIPO. What a bitch.
I am going to write more about her UCLA stuff ... County stuff etc. later. Her perjury's and defamations have been aided by her old accountant Frank Lee, and her newest Harvey Bookstein ....Glorya is old and these two are angling for trusteeships which is ok with me but they feed the evil of her and that makes them complicit because she couldn't think these lies up on her own. I am going to write more because aside from me and my life....her actions have devastated others ....a vendor that she stopped paying lost his home his family is homeless, another will have to file bankruptcy because these are small businesses that cannot take $35k or $60k or $100k losses. But lastly, her children called and asked if I could help them with info to stop her from taking away their inheritance and their children's inheritance.... that capped it. This woman sent me into a spiral of depression that impacted my health and her defamations impacted my ability to work and thus my finances. I was silent because I didn't want her to stop paying charities like Inner City Arts ...they are paid....Alvin Ailey was another concern however their executive director's actions have created this no longer being a concern of mine.
This world is filled with people who are just plain evil and the streets of this country are filled with good people who are the victims of this same 'evil' .... I think of her children older now with children of their own still suffering the abuse of this horrible woman. Evil comes in many forms but it has one objective and that is the destruction of others I can't stop them all but I certainly can use my voice to expose this one. Some things Are Just Wrong

"In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: Not necessarily to Win, but mainly to keep from Losing Completely." Hunter Thompson
The thing that is really really sad and really really scary about the importance of the Occupy Wall Street movement and change is that if nothing changes anyone with less than 1 million dollars in cash is going down. For the 99% it will be like other countries where the wealthy live well and rule and everybody else lives the best they can with very little. The millions of the people who are unemployed inevitably will become homeless because you cannot live in this country with no income.
We can't conceive of the fact that our educational system has become a training ground for servitude....a warehousing of children who will be thrown back into their communities to do the best that they can in low wage jobs and succumb to drugs and crime the stable food of crumbling communities all over the country. Higher education is becoming more and more out of the reach of the middle class and the poor and is of questionable value in our country anyway.
Maybe by bringing everyone and everything down to the 'servant' level the corps will be able to bring manufacturing etc. back into the country and have those jobs done by Americans who will now work for any sum just to survive. We can take note of Argentina which was once the #6 country in the world with brilliant scientists etc. Through circumstances similiar to ours corruption , devaluing of the educational system etc. took the country from #6 to 3rd world. There is much much more to the silent war against the people of America....but yes We lost. People complain that the OWS'ers are doing illegal things and that they are antagonizing the police etc....this is bullshit and it is the fear of the new 'scared to death' American. If we think that the corporations are going to turn the country back over to us because we 'ASK" in a polite and orderly manner then we are Really delusional...we have seen the way change happened in other countries ...we have no history of anything changing because people marched and the otherside said OK cool we will give you back what we have stolen from you.
This is NOT a movie!!! There will be collateral damage and I just hope that the kids and people who are on the front lines know that they can NOT expect the support of many Americans who would rather starve to death than face the Truth of where we are and where this is going if there is no change.
I am encouraged as in any movement for change a few brave souls stand on the front lines and then others follow until the numbers grow and grow. I am encouraged with the elders and the police chiefs and the unions and the soldiers coming home and the young people who have witnessed the American dream crumble ....maybe this ragtag coalition can bring down the giant and help to build a country that we can all be proud of. Cause what we've got now ain't it!

& Associates and “Glorya Kaufman Dance Foundation,” formerly
Domains By Proxy, Inc.
and that Carolyn B. Baker & Associates moved the Domain Names into its own control.
there were two 1st The Glorya Kaufman Foundation, then when she wanted to do Dance The
Glorya Kaufman Dance Foundation. The websites were registered by Orabor and on the
credit card of John Schuning from Orabor. I am attaching an email from Orabor that states
that they are my subcontractors. When they resigned from the project they stated to GK
that as subcontractors to me, they were not willing to continue with the project in any way.
that they were in contact with their contractor and we had to figure out how to get them paid the
back end of their contract (by this time J.R. Reed had resigned as Treasurer of GKDF and Gk
had stopped paying everyone from marketing to her soil engineers who working to legitimize
her building without permits on the estate.
(eliminate myself and Ron from the site) so we used that as a way to get Orabor paid. They told
GK they would make changes after they received payment on their final invoice, the check
120days past due arrived in 2 days…upon receipt Orabor notified GK that they did not wish to
continue if I was not involved. Shortly there after George Merlis whom I had hired to coach GK
for the speeches I wrote for her, aggressively demanded from Orabor the codes etc. for the
website, (these former friends of mine from Warner bros are artists and not prepared for aggression
and hostility) they gave them to George, I switched the codes, GK intimidated the programmer
into giving her the new codes, I switched the GKDF.net server. She owed/owes me 30k+ in
American express expenses for events and travel with and for her and the foundation, and 25k
in payments on my contract, $2,500 April invoice for speeches and website content. $7500 in
Foundation phone service and foundation mailing address (p.o.box). The letter that I sent
holding the website hostage came from an online legal page that attempted to help small
businesses recoup their money from deadbeat clients. (attached are emails and contracts
that substantiate the claims above)
- Factual background
by GK’s accountant Frank Lee and attorney to create another trust foundation. (which Frank
would have trustee control) which was not what she wanted … when she sent me the draft I
was horrified…. I said tell them he can do all these things with your permission ….GK said well
he always asks me etc. I said well just tell them…Frank went Ballistic!!! Mrs. Kaufman was flying
to Paris and I told her that with her permission I would have a nonprofit Glorya Kaufman Dance
Foundation created by the time she returned. I hired Foundation Source; I was the contact
(attached signed affidavit by GK) and secretary of the Foundation. I also instructed with GK’s
permission Foundation Source to transfer assets of the Glorya Kaufman Charitable Foundation
and close that trust foundation. (attached my correspondence with FS and govt documents that
bear my name/ notorized authorization by G for me to point person for foundation setup etc/
portion of old foundation/emails from GK that are clear re: my position.)
to be the dance philanthropist but had no credentials and no recognition thus I created a marketing
plan and each of the above recipients worked with me to create a plan that would benefit their
needs and elevate G K’s profile in the Philanthropic community giving her entrée into the dance
ambiance. My question to them was how much do you need and what can we name to promote
Mrs. Kaufman I would put together a proposal with my contact at each and then take it to GK.
go through the 6 months of hell that it took to get anything done (basically because Mrs. Kaufman
has no understanding of how business works as her exposure to the real world was limited
however she was constantly combative and one never knew from one day to the next when
she would insist on some destructive input. (attached emails and proposal info that substantiate
you and Ailey and the City and the Music Center’…her response was, ‘how are you going to do
that? I laughed and said ”I don’t know …but I’m going to.” We’re going to have dance and
festivals called Glorya Kaufman presents I did exactly that. (attached the trail of the MC from
honoring/ award/speech/etc that substantiates my statements)
were going to NY for an event for Juilliard and at the suggestion of a friend went to see the Alvin
Ailey dance theater. I saw this as a great opportunity to credential her in dance. They were in the
midst of a 50million endowment campaign and I asked how much would it take to make GK the
second major donor (first is the Weils – Citibank) and what could we name. Inner City Arts –
The Glorya Kaufman Dance Academy, MarVista Family Center Glory Kaufman Dance Center
was one of the first projects that I got her to fund beginning to give her recognition in the community
as a benevolent patron and begin her a legacy building. (Mar Vista She had reneged on a promise
to a City councilmember for his and the Mayors favorite project which I considered to be Political
suicide especially since we were trying to clean up her image in Los $300k was the gift, somehow
the last $100k was deposited in an account that was closed in AIG stock which when discovered
by the agency had turned into $16k, suspiciously. However, GK refused to discuss this with myself
or the executive director of the charity. Her then overall accountant Frank Lee, whom I understand
remains her personal accountant, did this.)
Dance because Dance so needed a Angel. Ailey was coming to Los Angeles and the gift had
already been made to them. The Los Angeles -Ailey at the Music Center gala is a fund raising
event for the Music Center – so we came up with honoring her at the gala. The Music Center
came with the idea of the Tour-de-Force award. So that was set…in the meantime working
with the Music center I learned that the Dance department was in jeopardy because of the
economic times etc. This hit my mind as a marketing/publicity chance of a lifetime. No one
including myself thought that in the middle of a recession she would agree to this. I presented
it to her lying on the flour of her living room …and she could see it and said yes. WOW….
we (talking about Jerry Digney who I brought aboard as publicist…whom she hasn’t paid either)
held a major press conference….I wrote a major speech for her the awards night, over 300
newspapers and television picked this up as the largest gift to dance ever! The naming that I
chose was Glorya Kaufman presents (Thus when any dance comes to the music center it is
Glorya Kaufman presents the Bolshoi @ the Music Center GK’s public profile went from low
to high Between November 2007 and March 2009 due to projects created and executed by
marketing and publicity. (attached trail of emails/proposals and correspondence that substantiate
She has never been in the NYT for anything other than that. ( Part of my branding requests for
Mrs. K's endowment to AAT Proposal attachement verifies)
Center gift – orchestrated by Jerry Digney
the project in November of 2007. Mrs. K has fired Jerry 3 times…with the 2nd being – March,
and the 3rd being July. By Jerry’s contract he should have been paid through December 2009
but she stiffed him too in July.) (attached publicity results with pictures of press conference etc)
March 2009 Ms. Baker subsequently continued to work for the Complainant as an outside
contractor via her firm Carolyn B. Baker & Associates and her work included website
development work and marketing services. (I was never employed as an Executive Director of
the Foundation; I lent my considerably nationally well-known professional name as Executive
Director, so that the Foundation could appear as a real functioning entity and not a kitchen
personal foundation. Mrs. Kaufman said she wanted a public image…a legacy. Now she says
after March I was an independent contractor, which contradicts her posture to everyone else
that my involvement ended in March of 2009. …(By contract her email in July ...60 days….
payment through December by automatic 6 month renewable contract) (attached) I have spoken
with the IRS about this claim, filed and been denied unemployment because there was no
un-tax paid by GK, California State, and Social Security are all unaware of payments to me
as an employee of Glorya Kaufman or the Glorya Kaufman foundation. No FICA, SDI,
fed tax withheld, state tax withheld etc. What Mrs. Kaufman fails to mention is that I set
up the Glorya Kaufman Dance foundation was the contact (by signed notarized by GK –
attached) and served as Secretary until I resigned I believe in June of 2009 (attached documents)
concerned with the fact that she refused to operate the foundation as a Legitimate 501c3 and
I did not want my name attached to what will potentially be an IRS problem.
of any withholdings, FICA, unemployment etc. Because it never happened. (I have attached a
copy of my initial 6 month independent contractor contract signed by Glorya Kaufman and my
long term contract through 2009) I was always paid by invoice to J. Ronald Reed who paid me
and all of the billings related to her marketing and development etc so that she could charge them
to her credit card and receive mileage…after executing a successful November event at Mrs.
Kaufman’s estate, I was given a new contract and a fee raise in December of 2007. That contract
was in automatic renewal and a 60-day notice. Mrs. Kaufman has to many people claimed that
she let me go in March. I have attached an email by a person who had no authority and then by
Mrs. Kaufman, I was secretary of the Foundation and therefore couldn’tfd be fired in that manner)
by email first from a friend’s husband, and then the friend (she called her daughter –not) later Mrs.
Kaufman sent me an email. It was clear that Mrs. Kaufman and her uninformed advisors had no
knowledge of the fact that a: I only held the title of Executive Director in order to give the
Foundation credibility….and since I was an independent contractor I could NOT be paid by the
Foundation as an Executive Director, b: That a corporate secretary has to be voted out or resign
as I later did due to the continued improprieties due to ignorance or malice that were in opposition
to my ethics as a professional. I knew she was under a lot of stress and just not herself…so I
ignored her emails and as you can see she swore to in her statement to WIPO I continued as
an independent the only revision would be my Always contracted as an independent from
September of 2007 to what should have been December 2009 if contracts and truth meant anything
to Mrs. Kaufman and her current advisors. I have included some emails that show I worked on until
she sent her July termination which would mean that I was due to be paid through December of 2009
, however I was not…..Including apx 30k+ in expenses never reimbursed for overhead and
subscriptions and travel for and with Mrs. Kaufman.
November 2009, the registrant of the domain names <gloryakaufmandancefoundation.com> and <gloryakaufmandancefoundation.net> was changed from Complainant’s name to Carolyn B. Baker

reasurer of the foundation paid all bills s hat they could go on Mrs. K’s credit card for mileage,
except the closing invoice (Ron was no longer functioning as treasurer of the foundation as he
had been subject to Mrs Kaufman’s unintelligent refusal to pay vendors (she is famous for this)
Orabor worked solely with me for design approval and content/ which I wrote and provided and
was paid for by separate invoice from my monthly marketing contract fee. I have attached an
email from an owner of Orabor, stating that they were my sub-contractor and their refusal to work
with GK without my involvement. I have also included emails that show how like most of the
vendors to the foundation and estate designers/soil engineers/marketing/publicity/etc. Mrs.
Kaufman refused to pay Orabor their final invoice until she wanted an additional webpage
(one that would not include Ron or myself –attached)I instructed them to say “of course, however
the final invoice needs to be paid. “ It was sent within 2 days. After which Orabor informed
GK that as a subcontractor to me they were not willing to work if I was not involved (attached)
this was in September.
and they turned the domain names over to me their contractor. They never talked to Mrs
Kaufman until September when she called to request changes…we got Orabor paid…Orabor
resigned the project then…GK had George Merlis her speech trainer who I had hired to work
with her. Send a threatening email to Orabor demanding the codes…they sent them…. I changed
the codes. Gk called the programmer and got the codes and changed them again. (The orabor

of the Domain Names as a former employee or contractor of Complainant does not demonstrate any
