Please don’t Mug Me! Just Pot Me!

Think: FOLLOW THE MONEY!!!

Curaleaf: Jordan Laraway McHugh KREMLIN !?!

We can’t produce fresh fruit or vegetables that aren’t rotten when we buy them or are rotten two days in the fridge, or we have to import them from Mexico or Canada, but we can build, maintain, and secure cannabis pot facilities all over the place!

Import Rotten Food but Grow Fresh Pot Locally.
Isn’t that just plain crazy?

Coeymans’ Very Own Russian Connection
The Alien – Jordan – McHugh – Laraway
Russky Collaborator George McHugh is running for Coeymans Town Supervisor. Will he get your vote, Komrad?

Yes! We spend billions a year on rotten fruits, vegetables, and meats and throw about 30% of it into the garbage because it rots before we can us it. But we import all of that produce and much of the meat and seafood, the meat and seafood arriving who-knows-how-old because it’s frozen. China, Mexico, Canada and other foreign economies are gobbling US dollars, your dollars, much faster than we can save our groceries from the transfer station.


Editor’s Aside: Curaleaf is the new name for the former PalliaTech. Boris Jordan is the CEO of Curaleaf. In an Albany Times Union article, the TU reports that the “Albany County Industrial Development Agency’s approval of roughly $450,000 in sales tax exemptions for equipment purchases to get the facility set for production” was OK-ed! Almost a half-million dollars in sales tax exemptions to retrofit a private company?!?!? Who approved that one, Mr Cuomo? Duh! A private company to grow What? You must all be on drugs.


In a personal communication from a local gas manufacturer in Glenmont, he tells us that his company’s major consumer of nitrogen gas is the food transportation industry. They cover the vegetables with inert gases like nitrogen or gases like ethylene dioxide while shipping them so that they don’t ripen during travel. But then, when they arrive at the destination, they go through accelerated ripening and rot faster!!! But who cares? By then they’re in your fridge. (Read about American waste in “Why Americans Lead the World in Food Waste,” — but the article doesn’t cover the additives to prevent ripening during shipping — but a trade article on how to prevent losses during shipping does cover the silent subject in the article,  “Preventing losses and preserving quality in food cargoes.”)

Canada gets the Blue Ribbon for taking care of their own.

We have to hand Canada the blue ribbon for taking care of their people. You see, Canada, with about one-tenth (35 million) of the US population (320+ million) and about the same size in terms of total area with Canada topping the USA in area (Canada 9,984,670 sq.km. vs USA 9,833,517 sq. km.).

But here’s an amazing difference: Canada has 44.5% agricultural land while the United States has 6.8%; Canada has about 17% arable land compared to the USA with about 7% Still wonder why we have to import our food? Oh, you say, most of Canada is woods and snow. Not true! Canada and the USA compare almost equally in terms of forested land: 33% and 34%, respectively. So why can’t we feed our people? Why can Canada feed their people and supply ours? Why does Canada have approximately the same land area but  only 1/3 the agriculture — but still feeds Canada and the USA —, while the US government is paying American farmers NOT to produce?  And why  Canada can produce beautiful produce hydroponically even during inclement seasons, and the US concentrates on growing pot? It’s actually a question of where government priorities are and the Big Plan for the few to control the many (only in the US, though).

You may not be able to afford these but Carver Laraway and Boris Jordan can. Smoke more pot!

They serve you rotten veggies and Chinese drugged up chicken, and provide fresh pot salad, while you’re vaping your cannabis oil they’ve sold you.

Minds like Boris Jordan’s, Carver Laraway’s and George McHugh’s and others around us function almost pathologically: Greed is a disease and excludes all other considerations. As Boris Jordan states in a CNBC interview, and we paraphrase, ‘Why stay in the Canadian pot market with only 36 million potential users when we can come to the USA and have 322 million potential users. The market growth is in the USA.’ We’re talking about pot now. Remember the stuff you’d get arrested for having just a couple of years ago?

Listen to the entire interview (about 6 minutes) at: Curaleaf chairman talks going public in a wild market for pot stocks.

Now greed mongers like Boris Jordan and Carver Laraway, with the help of the likes of George McHugh and Michael Biscone, are influencing legislators to change the laws (to make pot more accessible and put more of your money in their pockets. Don’t you see anything wrong with this picture? They serve you rotten veggies and Chinese drugged up chicken and provide fresh pot salad, while you’re vaping your cannabis oil they’ve sold you. Just listen to the interview above; Boris Jordan unabashedly talks about changing the laws!

Mug me! Pot me!

Americans want drugs; everyone knows that!
Americans are like midnight strollers in Central Park with big fluorescent letters on their backs: Mug me! Rape me!

Americans want drugs. There’s no question about that. The Columbians knew that and cashed in. The Mexicans know that and cash in. Afghanistanis know that and cash in. The Russians know that and are cashing in. Your American job-creators (That’s a joke!) are aiding and abetting the crimes against the American people. Americans are like strollers in Central Park with big fluorescent letters on their backs: Mug me! Rape me!

“All you need to do is trust us. We ask only that you trust us.”

The Russian, The Alien, The Russian-American
Is there a resemblance or is it us?

American business is based on a market economy: Give the market what it wants, that is, supply the demand. Enter Carver Laraway, George McHugh, and Boris Alexei Jordan. Remember the Twilight Zone episode, “We have come to serve you“? If not, let us remind you; watch the episode clip below:

And if that doesn’t amuse you, the clip where a Russian diplomat — interestingly Boris Jordan did his B.A. in Guess what? Russian diplomacy!!! — asks the alien: “Precisely, what are your motives for coming here quite uninvited. Are we to assume that there is no ulterior motive beyond this vast humanity you speak of?” And the alien replies: “All you need to do is trust us. Only that you simply trust us.”

The punch line comes in episode 3:

Government says: If there are laws prohibiting it we have to enforce the laws. That means we need a law-enforcement infrastructure and that costs money. This democratic market-economy so why not provide what the people want and do it legally. So we change the laws to make drugs legal that were once illegal, and government cashes in on the thing. Now if there’s no drug law enforcement, we don’t have to pay law enforcement to control drugs. Right? If it’s now legal, government and private enterprise make money. Right? If it’s legal, we don’t have to spend money on enforcing laws. Right? You don’t need so many law enforcement personnel or agencies. Right? More money saved. You make it legal and the street drug dealers go out of business. Right? WRONG!!! They create new, more potent, more deadly alternatives!!! Haven’t we learned from past failures?

We spent billions in the war on drugs…and lost the war. Now we’re joining the enemy. Nice!

Shocked? You should be.
(Figures up to 2015)

And just a couple of years ago, politicians were getting themselves elected by supporting the so-called “War on Drugs.” The stupidity of it all is revealed in the stats above and in the article, “Time to End the War on Drugs,” in which the argument is not that we should legalize drugs but should curb drug use but that we’ve been doing it all wrong for decades! Nobody in Washington or Albany seemed to read the writing on the wall.  We spent $$billions$$, NO! $$trillions$$ of taxpayer dollars in the “war on drugs.” And, like past wars, we came out with egg on our faces. Since VietNam, we’ve learned one thing: If you’re going to fight a war, make sure somebody gets rich and somebody gets re-elected. That’s the drum to which Washington and Wall Street march. So now we make marijuana legal — a drug that sent tens of thousands to prison and ruined tens of thousands of lives — but now is OK. Do we purge the criminal records of the kids that got caught? Do the convictions go away and does the stigma disappear? Maybe we should be asking questions like that.

We can’t buy a week’s supply of antibiotic to fight an infection without a doctor’s prescription but we can now get pot legally. Oh! Sorry, “medicinal pot.” We still need a practitioner’s prescription. Well, until we get beyond the “medicinal stage”, and move smoothly and legally into the “recreational stage,” like they are doing in Canada. But Hey! Boris Jordan is working on getting legislators to change the laws. All it takes is money, and he’s got plenty.

Sign on a downtown Montréal building.
(Translation: Smoking, Vaping, Cannabis Prohibited)

In a CNBC inteview of Boris Jordan, Carver Laraway’s backer and George McHugh’s financer, Jordan says: ‘In Canada there are 36 million people; in the United States we have more than 320 million people. Where do you think the market is? Where do you think the money is? The market’s in the USA.’

Don’t you feel like you’re being used? Why are the American people allowing themselves to be treated like mudroom doormats? Everybody, Chinese, Russian, Mexican gets to walk all over us. Is that right?

You’ve become the doormat and they’re walking all over you!

 

Sex for Sale: The Follow-up II

It’s not a question of whom you choose to love, how, or where. That’s a very personal right.

But it is a question of who is offering services, what services, how and where. There’s a difference between love, sex and Sex-4-Sale? There’s a difference between the backseat, the bedroom and the public arena, even if that arena appeals to a small segment of society.

We play too many games with language and fail to understand that language is connected with meaning, and meaning with values, and values with emotions. Just think what we have done to the simple four-letter word “love” in American English. We’ve destroyed it. Now just think about what “friend” meant at one time. and what “friend” means now in the post-Facebook era. “Friend” has become meaningless. When the basics — those little things most people take for granted and which make human beings into persons, that is, the things that change them from a What? to a Who? — lose their meaning and value, so do you and everyone else.


Have We Become Meaningless as a Doormat?

The United States once had meaning and value. It’s not only a question of ideology, or policy, or of how we think and what we do as a nation. It’s also a question of who we let in the country legally and what they do once they’re here. That’s a specific question of what our government is doing to protect the American way of life and living; literally, what it means to be the United States and the American people.

Are They Doing Their Jobs?

Or Are They Tantamount to Traitors?

Are you doing your job?

One of the questions we should expect the United States State Department and the Department of Homeland Security when vetting an applicant for entry in the United States and even more seriously, when admitting an applicant for entry in order to operate a business. The State Department and Homeland Security have been miserable failures in the past, and their failures have been the source of a great deal of tension, anxiety, dispute, anger, and suffering here in the American homeland. All of it unnecessary if our government would stop squabbling among themselves and do their jobs.


Editor’s Aside: The State Department authority for issuing visas is the Consular Service in the particular country. In the case of the UK, the applicant must have a valid UK passport, and will be able to obtain a visitor’s visa that is good for 90 days. Once here, no one — well, almost no one — keeps tabs on the “visitor;” he or she can do pretty much whatever and go pretty much wherever he or she wants. Many will take the risk and work illegally, and get away with it. But that’s no surprise to a nation who has been taking it from behind for so many years at Mexico’s pleasure. When the going gets really tough, the US government just makes them another US territory and pays them benefits without taxation, just like what happened with Puerto Rico. Everybody likes screwing Americans, even Americans.


We’ve recently had George McHugh and Carver Laraway in our sights because they are perpetrating a fraud on Coeymans, and need to be brought under control and fast. Residents are coming out with some very scary stuff about McHugh and Laraway, and our fact-finding is confirming much of what is being said. You don’t have to go far, for once the Albany Times Union is picking up on what McHugh and Laraway are up to, and more recently an individual with some very inside information has come forward and is ready to tell it all about McHugh and Laraway.

We’ve already raised important questions about George McHugh and Carver Laraway and their involvement with Russian businessman, Boris A. Jordan, and their marijuana businesses. We’re wondering why the Albany Times Union and the Ravena News Herald haven’t picked up the story, and Why? both papers are silent on the Russian connections in Coeymans. Well, it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to guess why Mark Vinciguerra and his — or should we say George McHugh’sRavena News Herald haven’t uttered a word about the Russian connections.

Back to “Sex for Sale”

Is T4GM Selling Sex Services on a US Visa?

But that’s another story. We’re getting off track so let’s get back to “Sex for Sale” and our continuing follow-up and investigation.

Washington County, NY, District Attorney
Jordan J. Anthony
Are you doing your job?

In two previous reports we drew attention to an unusual case of a British subject calling himself Jason Tantra, who claims to be in the US on a visa issued in the UK, and operating a business in the US, again authorized by the US consular authorities in Britain. We reported our concerns that Mr Tantra does not give his real name, does not publish or disclose any information about his business registration, no address, and no tax information. Yet the United States government has issued Mr Tantra a visa to be in the US, to work here, and to operate a business here in the United States.

We have reported that Mr Tantra — if that’s his real name, which we seriously doubt — operates a sex and spirituality business called Tantra 4 Gay Men, a business that provides massage services, instruction in what he calls Tantric sex practices, and even calls his operation a “school” that provides instruction and even issues “diploma certificates.”

That’s it in a nutshell. If you want to read the previous articles, please go to these links:

Our initial interest was the fact that this Mr Tantra had the balls to have a website removed because the site had published critiques of Tantra’s operations and his claims. That was important because we very strongly believe in freedom of expression and the right of every citizen to express an opinion. We also questioned the right, the legality, and the ethics of silencing a citizen because some pervert doesn’t like what he or she has to say. In other words, we had concerns about violation of constitutional rights by both the Internet service provider and by Mr Tantra.

Are you doing your job?

Well, the case has taken on an energy of its own, and we totally support the continuing investigation of Mr Tantra, his company Tantra 4 Gay Men (T4GM), his collaborators in the United States, including the LGBT retreat organization, Easton Mountain (Greenwich) in Washington County, New York, and the law enforcement officials in several states.

Our Government is Stooping to Record Lows

We agree that IF Mr Tantra and T4GM have been granted authorization to operate in the United States, that is, IF Mr Tantra actually has a visa to work in the US, and IF T4GM has actually been approved to operate in the United States as a business operation, our government is stooping to record lows. What possible contribution can a fraudulent, yes we said FRAUDULENT company make to any economy, local, regional, or national, to merit its authorization by the US government? On the other hand, Mr Tantra and his business may be operating without authorization, and what he has shared about his visa, the authorization to operate T4GM in the United States, his tax status, and his qualifications — apart from his statement that his services are “unregulated,” a statement with which we have taken issue and with which we disagree — then there’s a serious problem here that needs to be investigated. That’s exactly what one citizen is demanding.

We have documents that are addressed to a number of government agencies, demanding that Mr Tantra and his T4GM be investigated and that the truth be told. We  have contacted Mr Tantra at his organizations UK email via his T4GM website (What a mess that is!) and Tantra has responded with some very contradictory and defensive reactions, including threats of legal action and blocking further communications. So much for openness.

Mr Tantra has no idea about the big mistake he made by doing what he has done. So, we looked further into his operations and his collaborators’ operations, and we’d like to share some of the content of the documents we have.

Are you doing your job?

One citizen has send demands for investigation to the following local, state and federal government officials:

  • US Citizenship and Immigration Service
  • Homeland Security (Albany, NY, Regional Office)
  • District Attorneys in Washington County (NY), Suffolk County (MA), Miami-Dade County (FL)
  • The Attorneys General of New York, Massachusetts, Florida
  • United States Attorneys for the Northern District of New York, the District of Massachusetts, the Southern District of Florida

The concerned citizen has also contacted several newspapers in Washington County, NY, and Her Majesty’s Home Office (UK), Department of Fraud Investigation.

Here’s an excerpt from the letter sent to the officials:

I am writing to you with a concern relating to the following areas:

  1. Operation of a sex services business by a foreign national in the United States, the state of New York, and sister states.
  2. Collaboration with said operator by a New York group operating as the Easton Mountain Retreat Community, located in Washington County, New York,
  3. Granting of “Diplomas” in a three-module series of training for payment by an unaccredited and unauthorized “school” of Tantra
  4. Provision of instruction, therapy, massage services, health services, psychological services, etc. by unlicensed individuals or individuals not qualified or credentialed to offer such services in the state of New York or elsewhere
  5. Questionable state and federal tax status and filings, reporting by Jason Tantra/T4GM
  6. Visa status and the nature of the business approved for operation in the United States and the State of New York granted to one Jason Tantra or T4GM.
  7. The possible perpetration of a multifaceted fraud by Mr. “Tantra” and his business, and his collaborators in the United States and in New York state, and elsewhere (e.g. Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, etc.)
  8. Violation of civil rights by Mr. Jason Tantra by causing the suspension of an entire blog for criticizing Tantra’s operations and his T4GM operation in the United States. Mr. Tantra has admitted to demanding the suspension of the site once he was notified of the existence of the posts.

On information and belief and on the basis of personal communications received from one Jason Tantra, a British subject sojourning in the United States on a so-called visa, and the operator of a vaguely described business not only in New  York State, particularly in Washington County, at the venue calling itself the Easton Mountain Retreat Center, where said Jason Tantra by and through his so-called business T4GM, ostensibly provides a variety of sex-oriented, psychological therapeutic, instructional, etc. services, some of which I allege require accreditation, approval or licensure, which the operators do not have, or appropriate supervision for which the operators are not qualified or do not provide at all.

The fact that Mr. Jason Tantra — whether that is a pseudonym, an assumed name for the purposes of selling his snake-oil programs, or is his actual name is in question — is a British subject in the United State on a visa of some sort, and alleges that the business he is operating in the United States under such visa has been vetted by the United States authorities, is far from credible, and if true, raises significant questions of how such a visa should be granted to operate such a business in the United States at all!

Hey there! Georgie Boy! This song’s for you…

This is some really serious stuff so let’s start out with a little nostalgia, the 1966 hit song, “Hey there, Georgy Girl.” Of course we’ve adapted the lyrics for Georgy McHugh.

Georgie as Carmen Miranda singing “Hey there, Georgy Boy!”
We’d like to wish Georgy a Happy Pride Month!
(But Hey!,Isn’t that Georgy’s identical twin by a different mother, Chlamydia MuckHugh?)

Hey there, Georgy boy
Swinging down the street so fancy-free
Nobody you meet could ever see the loneliness there inside you
Hey there, Georgy boy
Why do all the boys just pass you by?
Could it be you just don’t try or is it the clothes you wear?

You’re always window shopping but never stopping to buy
So shed those dowdy feathers and fly a little bit

Hey there, Georgy boy
There’s another Georgy deep inside
Bring out all the shit you hide and, oh, what a change there’d be
The world would see a new Georgy girl

Hey there, Georgy boy
Dreaming of the someone you could be
Life is a reality, you can’t always run away
Don’t be so scared of changing and rearranging yourself
It’s time for jumping down from the shelf a little bit

Hey there, Georgy boy
There’s another Georgy deep inside
Bring out all the shit you hide and, oh, what a change there’d be
The world would see a new Georgy girl

(Hey there, Georgy boy)
Wake up, Georgy boy
(Hey there, Georgy boy)
Come on, Georgy boy
(Hey there, Georgy boy)
Wake up, Georgy girl

[Lyrics adapted from the 1966 movie of the same name. Set in London, the film is a comedy/romance starring Lynn Redgrave. We thought it really described Georgie McHugh.]

OK. Enough of the pleasantries, let’s get down to the dirt, the dirt that’s called George MuckHugh.

They’re not really dead, they’re just playing possum…fake dead.

A bit of advice to :  “You lie with a dog, you wake up with fleas,” or some other creeping pestilence. Your choice, your teamed up with two losers but then the saying goes: “Birds of a feather flock together.”

Or with George McHugh and his pet rats in your bed.

The Coeymans Comeback Team

There are just too many cozy relationships in Ravena and Coeymans, especially when it comes to George MuckHugh and his band of elves, Zach Collins, Brandon LeFevre, and George Langdon, who call themselves the “Coeymans Comeback Team.” They’re more like the “Coeymans Bareback Team,” and guess who’s going to be “bottom.”

The McHugh Deception Team. Hands in front of crotch body language means they feel vulnerable. Ever wonder?

When Dick Bleezarde died in 2008 and left the Ravena News Herald without leadership, McHugh rushed in to buy the local newspaper and cash in on “guiding” public opinion, and to ensure for himself a soapbox for his future. When McHugh soon thereafter sold the News Herald to the Columbia Greene Media group  (Johnson Newspaper Corporation as Columbia Greene Media). In 2018, Columbia Greene Media then sold the News Herald to Mark Vinciguerra, who previously ran Columbia Greene Media for about 5 years, and Vinciguerra created Capital Region Independent Media LLC, a publishing and consulting company owned by Vinciguerra, after having purchased the weekly Ravena News Herald newspaper from Johnson Newspaper Corporation. Now Vinciguerra is running the News Herald and George MuckHugh is running Vinciguerra. (See the article, “News Herald Moving Down the Road,” for details.)

Initially, the Ravena News Herald continued to occupy it’s long-time and familiar offices on Main Street in Ravena, a property actually owned by George McHugh, but then, in 2019, for some undisclosed reason, the Herald moved from there to McHugh’s former offices across the street in Ravena. Now when you drive or walk by the historic News Herald’s former location, you’ll see “Law Offices” and “George McHugh” plastered all over the storefront. How degrading!

So it’s no coincidence that McHugh is running full-page ads in the Ravena News Herald, now a McHugh whore — just another one in McHugh’s harem. Right, Bobby? [BL is one of McHugh’s disposables and knows a lot about him — Hate him she may but like so many cowards in the area BL is tight-lipped. Well, she’s tight-lipped for the moment but may burst any time now. And we’ll be there to publish all when the cat hits the fan! After being one of MuckHugh’s live-in girlfriends for a couple of years, we’re certain Bobby has some beans to spill.]

The bottom line is this: Given the close and cozy relationship between Mark Vinciguerra and McHugh, Vinciguerra’s landlord, we wouldn’t trust a word printed in the Ravena News Herald if McHugh’s mentioned in it. There’s nothing “independent” about  Mark Vinciguerra’s Capital Region Independent Media, the publisher of the Ravena News Herald. Make no mistake about that!

Making Eau de MuckHugh
The Comeback Team will create jobs.

Next Item: McHugh’s most recent full-page pile of steaming bullshit in the Ravena News Herald (Thursday, June 13, 2019). And it’s steaming bullshit at it’s most odiferous! You can’t avoid the stench. It’s Eau de MuckHugh.

The Coeymans Comeback Team’s Message to Voters.

First of all, the so-called “Coeymans Comeback Team,” is just that: a bunch of losers is coming back to have another shot at public office in Coeymans. McHugh got elected for two years back in 2000-2001, and finagled some deals and couldn’t get re-elected for a second term. Why should he have wanted to? He had purchased the Blaisdell farm property for his housing project and fixed it so that the property, formerly in the Town of Coeymans, would be annexed to the Village of Ravena so that he could get water for the project. McHugh takes care of McHugh. So now McHugh wants back in. He wants to get back into the Coeymans Town Supervisor’s office because he has deals to make, most probably with Carver Laraway and Carver Companies.

Even the Albany Times Union has picked up on this especially cozy relationship between Carver Laraway and George McHugh. You see, not only did McHugh pick up one of Carver Laraway’s ex-wives, McHugh worked until very recently as Laraway’s corporate counsel!

In the Times Union article, “Is Coeymans candidate too close to port owner?”, Times Union staff writer, Lauren Stanforth, writes:

“How a voter in this mostly rural Albany County town feels about the candidacy of attorney and realtor George McHugh likely depends on how the voter feels about the ever-expanding reach of the Port of Coeymans and its owner, Carver Laraway.

“That’s because McHugh isn’t just the former general counsel for Carver Companies, a job he said he resigned from March 1. He’s also a realtor representing a Carver warehouse at another port location in South Carolina. His son runs the Carver port in South Carolina. And McHugh was last year on the board of managers of a Carver limited liability company that dealt in commodities, according to research by the Times Union.”

Carver Laraway doesn’t have a very clean record: His company was fined $10,000 in January 2019 by the state Department of Environmental Conservation for allegedly using potentially tainted construction and demolition debris to fill in and expand the port. Laraway has also launched a campaign to purchase properties in the Coeymans Hamlet and elsewhere, most of which he determined couldn’t be saved and were torn down, according to the Times Union report. Bye-bye tax base for Coeymans. Thank you George McHugh!

The report also notes that the most vocal critics of Carver Laraway’s operations worry about Laraway’s plans for their small town, and fear the election of McHugh would give those business interests free rein. That’s not science fiction, people, that’s how Carver Laraway and his pet George McHugh operate. Oh, did we mention that Michael Biscone, the fat shyster crook is now working for Carver  Laraway. Now if that isn’t a read den of thieves we don’t know what would be!

Port of Coeymans owner Carver Laraway seen outside a house at Church and Fifth streets in Coeymans on Jan. 13. 2016 that he purchased from a bank for $20,000. Laraway said it’s part of his vision to help rehabilitate the withering historic hamlet. However, the house had since been demolished in 2019. (Lauren Stanforth, Times Union)

(Read the entire TU article at McHugh too Close to Carver Laraway)

There’s a lot to say about McHugh’s being in bed with Carver Laraway but you can google the dirt yourself. It all in the Times Union and other news media.

Back to the dumbass “Coeymans Comeback Team”:

If it isn’t obvious that their slogan, “Take Back our Town and Get the Coeymans Comeback Started,” means that the only one’s we’ll need to take the Town back from is Carver Laraway and his bosom buddy, Georg McHugh and McHugh’s band of monkeys, George Langdon, Brandon LeFebvre and Zach Collins. Think of it this way: You lie down with dogs and you wake up with fleas.

But let’s take a closer look at what McHugh and his pet rats are offering to do with their “Comeback Plan”:

1. Revitalize the town by attracting businesses through less government regulation and lower taxes.

Our Reaction.

Let’s be really real. You attract businesses by giving them tax breaks or some other incentive. So the lower taxes will have to be for the businesses in the form of tax breaks. That means someone else is going to have to foot the bill. Guess who?

As far as McHugh’s ability to make good on “less government regulation” that’s a load of steaming sewerage, too. The Town Supervisor has absolutely no power to work anything with government regulation. Period. Government regulation comes from state and federal laws. Period. Not from McHugh or any other local yokel. So that vaporizes No. ! of the Comeback Plan. It’s total misinformation and  your’re the target of the lies.

2. Support important quality of life initiatives including redirection of heavy trucks form Main Street, and expansion of services for youths and seniors.

Your Reaction.

If Mr. McHugh is so concerned about quality of life initiatives, why did he oppose the Coeymans Clean Air Law?  Answer: LaFarge and Carver Companies didn’t like it. Isn’t clean air a part of our quality of life? McHugh was corporate counsel to Carver Laraway when he was allegedly dumping contaminated fill at the Coeymans Port. Where was McHugh on quality of life initiatives then?

Again, the Albany Times Union comes forward with the story that connects McHugh, LaFargeHolcim and Carver Laraway with McHugh’s opposition to the Clean Air Law supported by current town supervisor, Phil Crandall:

“LafargeHolcim, owners of a cement plant on Route 9W in Coeymans, are urging defeat of a proposed town law that could prevent the firm from burning waste tires as part of the making of cement.

“COEYMANS — A cement company interested in burning old tires as fuel in its Route 9W kiln is moving against a proposed town air pollution law that could bar the practice.

“Meanwhile, the former lawyer for Carver Laraway, the owner of the Port of Coeymans, has launched a bid for town office. And one of Laraway’s companies is in the midst of a three year state contract in the waste tire business.”

Wonder why you didn’t read a word of this in McHugh’s whore, the Ravena News Herald? Ask Mark Vinciguerra why? Better still, ask McHugh’s Comeback Team.

Read the entire article by Times Union reporter Paul Buckowski at  “Proposed town pollution law draws cement plant challenge.”


Editor’s Aside: The DEC is a pack of whores, too. Here Carver Laraway is allegedly dumping contaminated fill at the Coeymans Port and he gets slapped with a mere $10,000 fine. That’s pocket change for a guy who connives with Cuomo-the-Homo for state contracts. But the DEC has gone against local businesses for practically nothing and almost ruins them for practically nothing. That’s New York justice for you! Corrupt as always.


What’s more, the NY State of New York Department of Transportation is the authority for state-owned highways, even if they do run through Coeymans and Ravena, as does Rt 143 (Main St.). The Town and the Village have no authority to redirect traffic on state-owned roads without a long and likely unsuccessful battle in the courts, because everyone, including heavy trucks, have a right to use state highways! McHugh is talking through his anus! But some things never change.

Furthermore, where will McHugh “redirect” the heavy trucks from Main Street? There’s nowhere for Carver’s huge trucks to go!!! Unless, of course, Carver has a new Thruway plaza (entrance and exit) or an arterial in mind. Well, that won’t reduce traffic, that’s for sure. But it will be good for Carver and McHugh. We wonder if that’s not the reason the land deal with the County of Albany fell through on McHugh’s watch.

Luckily for the area, the deal fell through when McHugh dropped the ball and the bomb and offered a number of idiotic excuses why the deal didn’t go through. McHugh is a veteran pimp and experienced whore for Carver Laraway. Laraway wanted to create another Carver theme park right under our noses by building another “industrial park”  that would have increased heavy traffic and destroyed our environment. There was something very fishy about the deal, too, when you think that it was right in the middle of federally protected wetlands. Where was the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation [DEC]  when all of this was going on? Why weren’t they all over this deal while it was threatening “protected” wetlands?  Well, the DEC was right in Carver Laraway’s back pocket, right there with Cuomo-the-Homo. (Read the entire article in the Times Union piece by reporter Amada Fries, “Coeymans property sale for Albany scuttled.“)

Any expansion of services for youths and seniors would cost money. New businesses won’t come to Coeymans without promises of tax breaks. That leaves the question, unanswered by McHugh and his monkeys, of where the money for the expansion of these services will come? From the welfare cases lounging on the porches? Probably not. From the trailer trash and trailer park druggies? Definitely not. We can guess where the money’s going to come from but we’d like to hear from McHugh or one of his pet rats. Where’s the money going to come from, Georgie?

Of course, there’s money that might be available from the county, the state, the feds, but someone’s got to write the grant applications and that takes money, too.

So, we guess that we’ve shot down McHugh’s “Comeback Team” plan No. 2.

Our interpretation of the Comeback Team’s basic message.

3. Improve town government through consolidation and regionalization to benefit the residents and taxpayers of Coeymans, and update Comprehensive Plan to allow for new investment.

Everyone’s Reaction.

First of all, what does McHugh expect to consolidate? Services? Town departments? There’s nothing to consolidate. A big word that means nothing!!!

And “regionalization.” Another lawyer-word that means nothing to Coeymans.

But wait a minute. Regionalization can mean two things: the tendency to form decentralized regions, but that doesn’t make much sense in a small town like Coeymans. But maybe the second definitions of regionalization does: land classification or land RE-classification. Does McHugh propose to reclassify land in the Town of Coeymans? And if so, does that plan have something to do with his cozy relationship with his friend and bedfellow, Carver Laraway and his empire plans?

If that’s the case, how, we wonder, will that possibly benefit Coeymans taxpayers? Which taxpayers? The “new businesses” and investors who have been attracted by paying little or no taxes or can McHugh mean those rest of us holding the bag to support local services and the inflated RCS Central School District budget.

The Coeymans Comprehensive Plan is already being updated — you’d know that if you were paying attention, Mr McHugh and your “Comeback Team” — so why does it have to be re-updated? Perhaps to accommodate some of McHugh’s plans for “new businesses,” expansion of Carver Laraway’s empire, increase of McHugh’s own empire in the Town of Coeymans.

McHugh’s “Comeback Team” plan No. 3 is just as scary, unclear, and shady as Nos. 1 and 2, and it seems all three are aimed at doing the same thing: enriching the few and impoverishing the Coeymans taxpayer!

4. Oppose an unfair reassessment of property that will result in higher taxes.

Now that’s the one that really makes us want to upchuck, that is, to puke!

Properties have to be reassessed on a somewhat regular basis.  If that were not the case, we’d be paying taxes on property that was valued at 1950s values. That simply doesn’t make sense. You make more, your property increases in value, you want better roads, better schools, more services, you have to pay for those things. If you get something for your tax dollars, there’s nothing unfair about it.

BUT: Here’s the problem with McHugh’s plan: the only unfair reassessment of property might be the reassessment of Carver Laraway’s property, or any property that McHugh has his eye on for development. Now, any reassessment of Carver’s or McHugh’s property would be, in their opinions, unfair. But they’re not thinking of you.

Furthermore, McHugh isn’t telling us that for the most part, taxes are not controlled by local authorities but by state and federal authorities. McHugh, who wants to be supervisor, is talking bullshit again, still. The Town Supervisor may be chief financial officer for the town, that’s true, but he has to come up with the money to support the Town Budget, or cut services, etc. He doesn’t control one of the biggest gluttons in the area: the school budget!

Property assessment is governed and regulated by New York State laws and enforced by the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, Real Property Services, NOT by the Town Supervisor.

So, Mr. McHugh might want to explain how he is going to do anything at all about any assessment of property, especially given the fact that he has no control over the operations of the Office of the Town Assessor! Sure, he can “oppose” anything he wants to oppose but the supervisor has no power or authority to control or regulate assessments! That’s again a load of McHugh bullshit foisted upon would be supporters.

What will result in higher taxes is shifting the tax burden from Carver Laraway, George McHugh, Michael Biscone, and the other parasites in the Town of Coeymans, and from any “new businesses” or investors, shifting the tax burden from them to YOU!

Read what McHugh is feeding you and think about it for a minute and see through the lies and deceptions.

MuckHugh’s Team will crash and burn!
