New Baltimore: Coeymans’ Evil Twin to the South

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this page NOW or get your parent to supervise your visit!


Special thanks to fingers-superglued-to-the-keyboard Joan Ross of New Baltimore for her special efforts in distributing this blog to her friends in New Baltimore and the Town Hall. We can always rely on old Jealous Joan and Bitter-balless Bob to do our work for us.


What Can We Even Start To Say About A Town that Sports All of 14 Mediocre Businesses and 2 Dying Churches, No Schools, A Deadbeat Town Board, A Moron Town Court, A Couple Of Rabid Pseudo-Sophisticates, Plenty of Real Estate For Sale, One of the Highest Tax Rates in the State, No Services…Google Anywhere Else and You’ll Get Hundreds of Hits.
Google New Baltimore and Get…Nothin’?

I only hope we're reading this right!

I only hope we’re reading this right!

Why would that be, you might well ask?!?

Another question we might well ask is: Why is it that small towns like Coeymans and New Baltimore have attained legendary status as hotbeds of injustice, conspiracy, corruption, inefficiency, and downright nastiness?

Well, back to our subject: The entire town of New Baltimore is about as big as Ravena, NY, in terms of population, and it’s just as corrupt. For example, the Town of New Baltimore has an area of a total 43.1 sq mi and a population (2010) of about 3,370 souls, well, most of them have souls. Compare this with Coeymans, New York, covering a total area of 53.1 sq mi and a population of 7,418 (2010). Both towns are losing population as more people move out looking for a better life.

The Town of New Baltimore consists of several small populated areas, mostly clusters of homes, including Deans Mill, Grapeville, Hannacroix, Medway, New Baltimore Hamlet (on the Hudson River),  Otter Hook, Paradise Hill, Roberts Hill. West Coxsackie is also located in the Town of New Baltimore.

Town in General. The region was part of the Mahican homeland, and was settled around 1700 and was included in early Dutch and English patents. New Baltimore was formed as a town in 1811 from the Town of Coxsackie. In the 200 years not much has been happening if we judge by population growth: in 1900, the town population was 1,536; in 2010 it was 3300 people.

Town Government or the New Baltimore Circus: Puts new meaning into the old dog-and-pony act. Main witch-on-a-stick is supervisor Susan K. O’Rorke (we won’t even mention what people are doing with the “K“) is the main clown. Once a Republican stronghold in its heyday, in the past several decades it has experienced decline, while the town has been run down by the Democrat inner circle over the past several decades, making its own rules and shoehorning its candidates into key positions. Much of this was due to the poor leadership in the Republican party and the party’s tendency to play fair against unscrupulous local democrats. The Republican party is starting to get smart, however, and is learning to fight fire with fire. But I’ve already said too much about politics on an apolitical blog. Where the former supervisor David Louis (wife of Town of New Baltimore Dem = DINO chairman, Diane Louis)  was a bit of a wet mop, the present supervisor is a haridan and not well-respected even by her own board. Not a good administrator, power-crazy, and generally a control freak, ensuring nothing positive gets done.

Like Coeymans, New Baltimore Justice is Badly Broken!

Like Coeymans, New Baltimore Justice is Badly Broken!

Town Justice or All the Justice You Can Buy or Let’s Make a Deal. New Baltimore disbanded its town constabulary years ago and, until recently, was served by the Greene County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police, who did a fine job. With the inauguration of a very competent and ethical Greene County Sheriff, Sheriff Greg Seeley, the department collaborated with the Town of New Baltimore and some forward-thinking board members (now extinct) to install a satellite station at the New Baltimore town hall. Sheriff Seeley’s deputies have been doing a great job.

Unlike the situation in Coeymans, NY, with its corrupt police department and town court, the problem in New Baltimore is only (only?) the corrupt New Baltimore town court. It’s not so much corrupt, really, as just incompetent and ignorant. We’ve written quite a bit about town and village courts and, like the moronic village court of Ravena under Harold “Hal” Warner, and the idiotic Coeymans town court under in-justices Phillip Crandall and George Dardiani, the New Baltimore town court fits the bill with a poster-boy of ignorant town justices Joseph Farrell and his crony, Lee Davis, both tools of the Democrat machine in New Baltimore.

The Clowns are In Town!Actually in Town Hall.

The Clowns are In Town!
Actually in Town Hall.

Town Politics the International Unemployed Clowns Association Meets Regularly in the New Baltimore Town Hall. The clowns’  new name: the New Baltimore Town Board [of Clowns]. Again, lousy with Dems, the board is generally dysfunctional and lorded over by the witch-on-a-stick mentioned above, town super-biatch Susan O’Rourke. Over the years most residents, as in Coeymans, have become so disgusted with the games the town has been playing for years that the majority avoid the meetings, making them a convenient playground for the Democrat club and its members. That’s really too bad and people need to get involved and take back their town.

Church. Broken and Split.

Church. Broken and Split.

Town Churches. 1 and one-half and dying. The town claims to have two churches: one in the boonies and one of the new-fangled feel good congregations. The single church in the hamlet/national historic district lasted more than 175 years before a woman pastor was assigned who, contrary to every rule in the book, immediately started making changes and spending money. It wasn’t long before she drove out most of the generations-old congregation and depleted the handsome financial portfolio. Recently you had to drive by to see a “Save Your Church” sign out front. You had to snigger a bit because it wasn’t our church any more. So, like the town hall, the old church has suffered under the ravaging control of a woman pastor with a feminist agenda, whose wild spending makes Michelle Obama look like a black austerity measure.

That brings us to the subject of schools. New Baltimore can’t afford its own schools so it buses the students either to Coxsackie or to the scandal-ridden Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk schools. It’s scandalous what’s being done to taxpayers in New Baltimore. As if it weren’t enough being raped with some of the highest taxes in the state just to live in 18th century conditions, a large part of the town has to pay RCS central school district school tax to a district that has one of the highest per student costs in the state ($21,000 per student) and one of the lowest regional graduation rates (in the mid-70%), compared with almost any regional school.

[Editor’s note: While the RCS school district has in the past been made the whipping boy of the local rag media, this blog has done much to draw public attention to the culprits, largely the teachers union, New York State United Teachers or NYSUT, and a group of Coeymanazis in the Ravena-Coeymans area. The attention has largely silenced the evil-doers and has allowed the non-teacher faction on the RCS CSD school board to clean things up and get some real work done. Under the leadership of Dr Alan McCartney the district started to turn around but in recent weeks, McCarntney’s luster has begun to fade. Is he just tired or have the Coeymanazi forces gotten to him? He’s either losing steam or pulling back.]

 

A lethal combination of high costs and low graduation rates!

A lethal combination of high costs and low graduation rates!

Town Services. The Town services run into the negative. Yes, the roads are paved, somewhat. But the New Baltimore Thruway Department is a bunch of woodchucks brandishing shovels and following a truck with some asphalt. All they seem to be able to do is throw a shovel or two in a pothole, watch it steam for a spell, while leaning on their shovels, and when the excitement over the steaming asphalt abates, they move on to fill another pothole and watch it, etc. This goes on until a corpse would get bored watching! Well, the problem is that they’re all on salaries paid by New Baltimore residents and they’re wasting time, money, equipment, and supplies–and don’t seem to give a damn. Once it rains and a couple of cars roll over the “patches” the pothole’s back and the ritual repeats, and repeats, and repeats…

bad-waterWe have a public sewer system but no drinking water. One of the previous administrations about five years ago spent a bundle on a project to bring municipal water to the Hamlet, where most of the wells were contaminated by the old septic tanks. Well, the battle that was waged by a handful of amoral lunatics who were, in fact, newcomers to the town, and who had nothing better to do, ran the town into its own cesspool of hate and fratricide in opposition to the water project. The Ross-Luckacovic coalition and its band of what Joan Ross affectionately called Newbaltimorons, nearly destroyed the community and the repercussions can still be felt in the hamlet. John Luckacovic, one of the hate mongers, moved to Columbia county with his partner, Eleanor Oldham. Bob “Robby” Ross and Joan Ross still reside in the hamlet where they still spew their venom. Idle hands do the devil’s work, it seems.

But that’s not the end of the water fantasies that seem to occupy the empty spaces between Democrat ears in New Baltimore. While Joan Ross and Bitter Bob and their loose-canon ally, John Luckacovic, managed to nearly destroy the community with their misinformation, lies, and backstabbing, the Democrats in the Town hall had wet-dreams about a huge recreational water park in the town, new NYS thruway construction, etc. etc. But hamlet residents would be allowed (thanks to the Rosses and Luckacovic team) to go dry. But, again, fantasies and idiot’s dreams are doomed to dry up…just like the New Baltimore Reformed Church’s patrimony, portfolio, and congregation, and just as the Town of New Baltimore is doing as we write. Drying up.

Small Government at Work for You

The anti-water campaign was a travesty of free speech but a banquet of misinformation and backstabbing. Unconfirmed reports say that John Lucakcovic is close to the Coeymans gang, most notably Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca and his Coeymanazis. If that’s true, Joan and Bob Ross wouldn’t be able to resist getting involved.  We may never know the truth because they don’t have the cojones to do their mischief in daylight and work by ambush and darkness: typical of the rodents they are.

Overall, the town is dying thanks to high taxes, no real businesses, and general apathy. This paves the road for vultures from downstate to take advantage of cheap property values and an indifference to local culture to come in and destroy almost 300 years of history. The people moving in and displacing the locals who can no longer afford the area are nasty, asocial, and controlling. What’s worse, they find it easy to cajole the local politicos and have their way.

Carpetbaggers are in town!

Carpetbaggers are in town!

Here’s an example: In the National Historic District, through some corrupt finagling, a downstater bought up several homesteads on the river, demolished the historic buildings, and erected what can be best described as a chicken coop on steroids, an absolute eyesore. But, somehow they got the permit to put it up and desecrate the historic district. Small town greed and big town money at work, it seems.

To the man (and woman) all of the damage that has been done to New Baltimore has been done by outsiders coming in, whether you consider town hall, the murderous water campaign in the hamlet (Ross and Luckacovic), the indifference to the local historical culture and architecture, etc. The ME First! people have come and walked all over the local people. What’s next, oil derricks in the hamlet, Ms O’Rourke? I wouldn’t put it past her, really.

We can, of course, thank the carrion-eaters in the area, like Tracey Burton, real estate monger, of the real estate office Victoria Real Estate, who is the ambulance chaser of local properties. Burton has the morals of Stalin and is about as loyal as Benedict Arnold. But she’s somehow gotten her foot in the New Baltimore door (one shudder’s to think how she did that…orally or anally or…). She’s one to be wary of (from personal experience) she’ll make it yours and you’ll have to make it shine while she collects her ill-gotten commission and leaves you to figure out what went wrong. (Sellers be very wary. She’ll get you dragged into court for her stories and then wish you, “Good luck!“).  She’s typical, though.

Town Businesses. 14 Nothing worth noting.  Most business tends to skip over New Baltimore to settle in business-friendly Coxsackie, the next town south of New Baltimore, and one that’s showing considerable promise.

Conclusion

brokenAs we develop our research and our collaborators canvas, sort and send in new information, we hope to provide residents, taxpayers, and investigating authorities with little-known facts about what is going on in New Baltimore.

We expect that the information and the facts as they are checked and verified will provide the same material for investigation as our first year of operation has done in the case of the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans.

Because we have made such headway in garnering the trust and confidence of our friends and neighbors in Coeymans, and the word has gone out to surrounding communities, our work has been made significantly easier in the case of New Baltimore, because New Baltimore residents have been watching our successes in Coeymans.

New Baltimore Democrats: You need to consider the alternatives. You have a bunch of losers in the New Baltimore town hall and you need to get some winners in there. Winners like the people who made New Baltimore a thriving, welcoming, friendly community; not an exclusive club and the town hall their clubhouse! Even the churches are suffering in the present climate of hypocrisy!

The Charges

criminal chargesPL  140.05 Trespass
A person is guilty of trespass when he knowingly enters or remains unlawfully in or upon premises.
PL 145.00(3) Criminal Mischief 4th
A person is guilty of criminal mischief in the fourth degree when, having no right to do so nor any reasonable ground to believe that he or she has such right, he or she: Recklessly damages property of another person in an amount exceeding two hundred dollars.
PL 155.30 Grand Larceny 4th
A person is guilty of Grand Larceny in the fourth degree when he steals property and when the value of the property exceeds one hundred dollars and the property consists of a motor vehicle, as defined under section one hundred twenty-five of the vehicle and traffic law, other than a motorcycle, as defined in section one hundred twenty-three of such law.

Background

screenplayIn their depositions, the victims state that Scott M. Lendin was told to leave the victims’ property and to stay away. Lendin trespassed and committed the other alleged crimes. The depositions allege that Lendin, while trespassing and attempting to remove a motor vehicle from the victim’s property, damaged several other vehicles, amounting to more than $1200 in repairs, and that Lendin, while trespassing, stole a motor vehicle from the victims’ property.
On information and belief, Lendin also stole a computer from a construction vehicle belonging to a local construction company. On investigation the theft was confirmed. Lendin installed the computer in a similar vehicle and sold that vehicle. He was never charged with the theft (the company made an insurance claim, got paid, and didn’t follow up. Neither did the police!).

A disturbing aspect of this case is the fact that Lendin allegedly bragged to local business owners about what he had done, claiming he’d never be caught and that he had friends in the Bethlehem police department.

Another disturbing aspect of this case is the fact that the case was in Steve Prokrym’s hands but somewhere along the line it was reassigned to Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, with the approval of his boss, DoDo-Cop Gregory Darlington, could sit on a case for months, obstructing justice, and not be disciplined, fired, or brought up on criminal obstruction charges! But it seems to us that there was a conspiracy in progress and Deluca was the one to make sure the retaliation was effective. How does that work? Would it work for you or me? And what about the cops who knew what was going on, all about the retaliation etc., Contento, Crosier, and others? Weren’t they obstructing justice?

Is Kerry Thompson a Mole in the Sheriff's Department?

Is Kerry Thompson a Mole in the Sheriff’s Department?

And then there’s the mole in the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, Kerry Thompson, who is Gregory “DoDo-Cop” Darlington’s personal assistant and married to Darlington’s sister. Smell a rat or a whole nest of them yet?

Yes! We should remove that mole!

Yes! We should remove that mole!

And what about the theft of the computer from Fink’s? The police know about that but haven’t gone after Lendin. Facts are the computer was stolen, Finks knew about it and filed an insurance claim and got paid. Lendin allegedly admits to the theft. Why doesn’t the insurance company go after Lendin to recover for the amount paid in the claim? Have Lendin arrested and charged? What’s going on here? In fact, we have received unconfirmed reports that the actual bulldozer (and the computer?) are on Scott Lendin’s property at this very time! Where are the police investigators now?

The Outrageous Events

The Failure of the Coeymans Police Department: The Coeymans Police Department managed to take the complaint, but sat on it for months despite numerous calls to chief Gregory Darlington and others in the Coeymans P.D., even to supervisor Stephen Flach. According to a member of the Coeymans P.D., Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca sat on the paperwork for months and did nothing.

The Intervention of the Albany County Sheriff’s Department: Thanks to the professionals in the Albany County Sheriff’s Department under the leadership of Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, the Coeymans police department was forced to do something. If it weren’t for Sheriff Craig Apple and investigators Eric Barnes, William Rice, Mark DeFrancesco the victims’ rights would have amounted to zilch, nada, zero, and the perp, Scott Lendin, with his “friends in law enforcement” would have walked…thanks to Coeymans town Justice Phillip A. Crandall and the bozos at the Albany DA’s office, Lendin pretty much walked anyway.

The Charging, Arraignment and Arrest of Scott Lendin: Despite having taken the complaint and after Jerry Deluca sat on it for months, the perp Scott Lendin, was finally charged, arraigned and arrested. But that was only after the victims asked the Albany County Sheriff to get involved.

The Albany County District Attorney’s Plea Bargain: After all was said and done, and after more than a full year had lapsed, it took the bozos from the Albany County District Attorney’s office and a no-balls Coeymans judge to violate every orifice Lady Justice owns. P. David Soares treated Lady Justice like a common whore, and Coeymans town justice held her down while assistant DAs Weafer and Sharp had their way with her. Shame on you! Scott Lendin and his friends in law enforcement (Deluca, Darlington) stood by and snickered. Coeymans town Supervisor Stephen Flach  stood by and made believe nothing was happening.

no-balls-no-brilliance-Phillip A. Crandall’s Acceptance of the Plea: Coeymans town justice Phillip A. Crandall made a mockery of the judiciary and of his oath of office by sitting on the case knowing that there were local politics and agendas involved. Crandall is just as much a criminal as Soares, Weafer, Sharp, Deluca and Darlington are. They were all involved in a scandalous conspiracy to pervert justice. This was a clear example of abuse of, misuse of the public’s trust, and a corruption of public office.

The Release on a Ridiculously Reduced Charge: So you have a self-confessed thief on the loose, thanks to the Coeymans Police Department, the Albany County DA, and the Coeymans town court, the dishonorable Phillip A Crandall, presiding.

What message does that send to the rest of us when we know that someone can come on your property multiple times after being thrown off, to steal your property and, while perpetrating the theft, damages other property, and who admits yet another theft yet goes free as a bird? What does that mean to this community?

cryng libertyThe Abandonment of the Victims’ Rights: The business operators and property owners in the town of Coeymans, the victims, taxpayers to the max, people who support the Coeymans and greater regional community, have been abused by the very agencies whose salaries they are paying: the Coeymans P.D., the town of Coeymans administration, the Coeymans town court and its bozo Coeymans town  justices. That’s a real engraved invitation to business to stay out of the area, don’t you think so? Who’d want to go through all of that and then pay our property, school, and other taxes? With Soares and his monkeys in Albany, and with the thugs in the Coeymans police department, and the no-balls Coeymans town justices, the law-abiding resident, much less the business owner in the town of Coeymans, don’t have the chances of a snowball in hell!

But there was also a caseworker from the Crime Victim and Sexual Violence Center,  a Bernard Amador, who was supposed to be coordinating restitution for the losses caused to the victims by the thief, Scott Lendin. That part of it was also screwed up by the Coeymans police department when they couldn’t figure out the amount of the damages, despite the fact they had it in the complaint documents. So, the make it easy on their dumbasses, they simply reported “more than $1” ( the actual amount of damage done to property was more than $1200!). Assistant DA Stephen Sharpe was just as big a dimwit as the Coeymans cops! So, after all is said and done, Bernard Amador derailed and crashed, too! All of these morons and idiots are being paid by taxpayers!

The Conclusion

First of all, the Coeymans police department under it incompetent chief Gregory Darlington fell flat on their fat faces and, again, were a scandalous embarrassment to this community, and to the Albany County Sheriff’s Department and to the New York State Police, and to law enforcement, generally. It’s a rotten shame that the few decent cops in the Coeymans police department have to carry the stench of Darlington, Deluca, Thompson, Johnson bobos in the department. But, as the saying goes, you lie with dogs you wake up with fleas. Sorry boys!

cut throatThe fact that Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca a.k.a. BoBo-Cop, sat on the case and the paperwork lay on his desk for more than 3 months without him having lifted a fat finger would be grounds enough anywhere else to can his fat ass. But in Coeymans, under DoDo-Cop Darlington and the impotent and feeble mindless “leadership” in the town of Coeymans Deluca got away with his passive retaliation, that is, until outside professionals were brought in.

Craig D. Apple Sr.Alabany County Sheriff

Craig D. Apple Sr.
Albany County Sheriff

It is to the great credit of Craig Apple, Albany County Sheriff, and his detectives, investigators, and deputies, that he was able to get involved and, despite having his hands tied by jurisdictional courtesies, was able to shake up the Coeymans police department and get Dodo-Cop Darlington to start doing some chiefing and get his team of bobos off their triple-digit asses, and catch a criminal. Sheriff Apple got right on the case and assigned real professionals to start the investigation that the Coeymans police department was either unable or unwilling to do. Only after Apple’s department and personnel were involved did the investigation start, the warrants issued, and the perp, Scott Lendin, apprehended, arrained…but that’s where it got dicey, thanks to the Albany County DA P[udenda] David Soares, assistant DA Kenneth C. Weafer, assistant DA Stephen M. Sharp, and local shysters Michael J. Biscone (Ravena) and Brian W. Devane (Delmar) managed to intimidate local town justices George Dardiani and Phillip Crandall. Soares’ little gremlins Weafer and Sharp managed to further damage the community’s confidence in law enforcement and in the justice system by playing into the hands of the criminal and telling the victims to take a hike. The arranged a plea bargain and never even communicated to the victims what was going on. The Coeymans police were just as stupid because they managed to screw everything up from the very start, but couldn’t even get the paperwork right even after three attempts!

So, when the perp, Scott Lendin was finally brought in to face the charges of trespass, criminal mischief, and grand larceny, he had already been dumped by the shyster Michael Biscone, and was represented by shyster Devane. Meanwhile, the DA’s office was totally confused and one hand didn’t know what the other was doing, so they did what they do best: help their friends (the criminals) and make a deal.

no ball sign

Do you really need a caption?

 When assistant DA Stephen M. Sharp was asked by the victims after the plea bargain was accepted by Coeymans town justice, Sharp’s reply was: “I don’t know anything about it.” Makes you want to ask then, “What in hell are you doing here, then? Who does?” Apparently, assistant DA Kenneth C. Weafer was on the case, left the DA’s office, and somewhere along the line Sharp was assigned to the case…and did NOTHING. There you are! P[udenda] David Soares, the Dodo-DA, at his best and at the taxpayers’ expense. [Monkey] Business as usual.

Albany County JusticeCoeymans Style

Coeymans Style

But no-balls Phillip Crandall, the judge on the case, dropped the ball all together. How could Crandall, having been involved in the case once it had started moving, after Coeymans town justice Dardiani got a mouthful from shyster Michael Biscone, who refused to bring in his client because the Coeymans police had screwed up the paperwork (according to a reliable source in the Coeymans police department who asked to remain unidentified, there was no problem with the paperwork…they had their “orders” and had to do what they were told). No-balls George Dardiani took it like a real wimp, and Biscone and Lendin went free for another day. Dardiani subsequently was no longer on the case when no-balls Crandall came on board.
So, after all was said and done. The perp walks, and the DA tells the victims that they have to go after Lendin in civil court to recover their damages. Great work DA DoDo’s.
Meanwhile, the Coeymans police are going after old ladies, pretty girls, and rowdy high-school kids. And you, the taxpayers of this community, are footing the bill for shoddy amateur police work, retaliation, intimidation to the tune of about $1,000,000 a year. Makes you feel real good, doesn’t it?

Epilogue

This is bizarre: Where was the Police Blotter entry on this crime and botched investigation? We don’t seem to be able to find it in the News Herald or anywhere! And where was the local media coverage. There were police all over the place once the Sheriff got involved. No Times Useless. No News Herald. No News 6, 10, 13. No reporters and cameras showing up for the arraignment of a real criminal! Why was that? Don’t you wonder why the place is lousy with reporters in some minor instances but in others, they’re nowhere to be found? Looks like the news media is in cahoots with the DA and the other criminals in the county. [Editor’s Note: If any of our readers saw a report in any local news media, please let us know. We’d be very interested in correcting our inability to find anything.]

no-justicePhillip A. Crandall has a reputation for being some sort of religious crusader and is attracting some criticism that his version of Christian practice is to go easy on criminals. That’s not how it works, Philly! Perhaps if you had any knowledge of jurisprudence or of the law or of judicial ethics you’d know that your sole function is to interpret the law fairly and impartially. Fairly and impartially means you leave all of your personal baggage at the door when you put on the robes of the judiciary. You took an oath of office and if you can’t do the job, then RESIGN!

Same goes for Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach. If you can’t leave your pulpit and be a tough administrator, then RESIGN, Stevey. You have taken an oath of office and if you can’t fill the shoes and get tough with the town employees and other officials, including your own town board, the Coeymans police department and the town courts and their dizzy town justices, then RESIGN.

But after all is said and done, there is a bright side, a positive side. While they may have turned a petty, small time thief loose, at least we know about Scott Lendin, he’s a marked man now. So the bright side, the good news is that at least we have all the real criminals consolidated in places where we can keep a close watch on them. The real criminals are all together in two places: the Office of the Albany County District Attorney and the Coeymans Police Department.

Postscript

Logo_PSOur readers will recall that we reported on the harassment of a local woman business owner by Joseph Tracey, Josephine Tracey-O’Connor’s demented father, over Josie’s “He called-me-fat-dance” at the high-school last May. We shared with you the fact that when the woman tried to file a complaint against Joe Tracey, Coeymans police chief Darlington’s “personal assistant” Kerry Thompson refused to take the complaint. In confidence, a female Coeymans police officer, who requested to remain anonymous, allegedly contacted the victim and told her Thompson should have, had to take the complaint and that she, the officer, was going to put the information in the file. Wonder where that file ended up? Any ideas, Jerry Deluca? How about you, Gregory Darlington?

Albany Times Union Publishes Sequel to Our Articles!

We’ve Said It So Many Times Before! And It’s Still True As It Ever Was!

Well, Maybe Not New News...Just Old News.

Well, Maybe Not New News…Just Old News.

 We Scoop the Albany Times Union (owned by the Hearst Corportation) and Local Comatose Rags by Publishing Solid Facts Way Before the Times Useless and the Hudson Catskill Newspapers (a division of Johnson Newspapers Corp.)

The Albany Times Union’s Fred Lebron Follows Our Lead And Writes on Public Corruption and Schools! But it’s the Times Useless’ undisguised usual finger-pointing, doom-and-gloom, anxiety- and fear-mongering. Factoids. Why do they even bother?

You're Burning Down Your Own Houses.

You’re Burning Down Your Own Houses.

In our recent articles on this blog we pointed out the major obstacles to making life livable in this community and in the bigger picture.  This blog actually started back in May 2012, when we had to come out and draw the public’s attention to the corruption that was going on in the schools, especially what was going on in the RCS central school district budget voting and the deception that was created by the RCS CSD teachers association, its president, double-dipping, bully-mongering, loose-lipped teacher Matt “the Mutt” Miller, the idiot interim superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, a teachers union lackey, and the teachers clique on the RCS CSD board of education, Alice Whalen, Howard “Bray” Engel, James Latter,  former member Josephine Tracey-O’Connor of “He Called Me Fat” fame, and former member Tracey Traver, together with the Coeymanazi mob under the direction of Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca, assisted by his partner, Cathy Deluca, and their minions.

Dumb-as-Dirt David Soares

Dumb-as-Dirt David Soares

And we’ve courageously gone after that scandal-looking-for-a-place-to-happen,  P[udenda] David Soares, the renegade Albany County District Attorney, the disgrace of a chief county law enforcement officer, Soares, when he’s not getting a reprimand by federal judges, or hes not dipping his pen[is] into company ink[wells], he’s getting his inkwells special appointments, or simply maliciously prosecuting local residents. Pundenda-obsessed Dave is merely a tool of the machine; he’s to stupid for anything else and too corrupt and immoral (read: amoral) for any other place. A graduate of the boys’ club called Albany Law School, he’s ethnic, and a West African immigrant, he’s in like flint as the “token” in the in-appearance-only ultra-liberal Albany political machine (when it comes to pandering for votes) as long as he kisses his handler’s mechanically conservative asses (the spirit of Erastus Corning delights). Soares has no self-esteem and no morals so he’ll do just about anything…or anyone. He’s gotten his share of space on this blog, too.

We followed the harassment and conspiracy that was hatched to malign board of education members by the Coeymanazis, no doubt with the assistance of the teachers association and the backing of the New York State United Teachers union, NYSUT.

As residents and citizens started to see the light and the writing on the wall, we moved on to uncovering corruption and the crooks in the RCS communities, most conspicuously the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans, especially the Coeymans Police Department. There was plenty of scandal to go a long way, and it kept us busy for a year reporting on the truth while the Albany Times Union and its junk journalists concentrated on partisan (read Coeymanazi) low-life scandal reporting, obviously fed rubbish by the local Coeymanazis and their keepers in Albany.

His Honor, the Mayor.John Bruno is Mayor of Ravena, NY.

His Honor, the Mayor.
John Bruno is Mayor of Ravena, NY.

And then there’s Ravena. What would Ravena be without a nest of corruption housed in the village hall. What would Ravena be without a senile ill-tempered godfather in Depend®, mayor John Bruno,  presiding over his court of blathering inbred Bruno, Persico, Biscone, Albano dwarves, the Delucas and the Warrens cowing and bowing to get their carrion-toxic talons into anything of value. We covered their latest larceny: the Bruno-Deluca-Warren Memorial Fitness Center and their feeble and misguided attempts to oust the RCS Community Library so that Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warren could prance and pose in their “own” fitness club–or is it a dairy farm–they “purchased” with Ravena taxpayer money to the tune of $40 grand!

eat-more-brainsYes! We were then and continue to be the bastions of Truth in this community while the Albany Times Union (a.k.a. Times Useless), the Ravena News Herald, and other local rags, including the local television sharks on  News Channel 10, News Channel 6, and News Channel 13 continued their tabloid journalism licking at the stale blood drawn by the Coeymanazi ambushes, and writing award-winning pornographic fiction based (almost) on slightly true facts creatively altered and embellished, but a final version of “facts” a.k.a. factoids. When they weren’t doing the Coeymanazi’s dirty work in print, they were days, even weeks late on the so-called stone-dead-cold “stories”, and stories they were, most of the time following on the heels of articles already posted on this blog. And you pay for the stale pulp fiction reported in that mass of advertising called  the Albany Times Union or that major collection of public notices called the Ravena News Herald. I just don’t get it.

Those of you who have been regular readers and who have signed up for e-mail notification of new articles and comments (You can follow this blog by clicking on FOLLOW ME in the upper right margin and entering your e-mail.)  Are very well-informed about the goings-on beneath the surface on the board of education, in the schools, and in the village and town boards.

More recently we published our observations about the Coeymans town board’s outrageous decision to award MidHudson Cablevision a 15-year exclusive contract for cable and Internet services (read Ravena-Coeymans: The Land of Goofy!) and followed that article with a sequel and update on that shameful betrayal by the Coeymans town board of residents in the town of Coeymans (read Sequel to “Land of Goofy”).

We drew attention to the fanatical and villainous presentation by John Anthony in the recent presentation that totally distorted the doctrine of “sustainable development,” striking fear and anxiety in an already paranoid local population. We tore that stupid propaganda a part in our article, Need More Unconstructive Anxiety?, and cast shame and disgrace on the organizers for having imposed such arrogant and misinformation propaganda on local citizens and voters!

Again, in an idiotic article degrading the pages of the already base Ravena News Herald by Bryan Rowzee that centered on local Coeymanazi building inspector Laverne “Larry” Conrad, while misquoting American poet laureate, Robert Frost, and quoting Laverne Conrad.

You may remember Laverne “Larry” Conrad as  part of the comedy duo, “Laverne and Surly“, who appear regularly on the Coeymans Comedy Channel (MidHudson Cablevision’s public access channel 11), featuring cameos by Tarty Tom Dolan, BoboCop Jerry Deluca, DodoCop Gregory Darlington, Bobo and Dodo doing their ” Wild West Keystone Cops” clown act, the Surly Siblings (Stephen Flack, Thomas “Tom” Dolan of MidHudson Cable fame, Peter Masti, Thomas Boehm, Dawn Rogers) as well as the Juggling Justices Gregory Dardiani and Harold “Hal” Warren who dress up as judges and make a mockery of the law (assisted by evil shyster clowns Gregory Teresi and Michael J. Biscone).

Well, in that News Herald article, Rowzee quotes Frost incorrectly and makes the mistake of quoting Laverne “Larry” Conrad. Read our article at Coeymanazi Building Inspector Conrad and you’ll get a good laugh…or a good cry.

Our article on the reverse Robin Hood shell game being played by Washington with taxpayer money focused on the reality of the misuse of the American taxpayer and how the feds take the food from your mouths to pay for the foor placed in the mouths of dictators and revolutionaries (covertely, of course) private jets of foreign government officials.
Waxing Whimsical: Why the US and You Have no $$$ ! tells the true story of why our communities, businesses, schools, and communities are in such dire straits.

And now Democrat Sec’ty of State Kerry and King Obama bin Ladin are prepping us to get involved in the Syrian conflict! More taxpayer $$$BILLIONS$$$ hemorrhaging out of the country to support causes of little or no interest to the Coeymans or Selkirk resident–or to anyone with any serious interest in day-to-day survival! When are you going to say STOP! In the meantime, you can continue collecting empty beer cans à la Cathy Deluca to send your kids on school field trips, while she’s posing for mayor Bruno in their “community” fitness center with Nancy Warner–at a cost of more than $40 grand of your tax money, plus their salaries! Disgusting!

Now back to the Albany Times Union, Fred Lebrun, and the Sequel to Articles on this blog…

A reader drew our attention to an article that appeared in the Albany Times Union on Sunday, February 24, 2013, and written by Fred Lebrun, a fossil writer for the Albany Times Useless who occasionally pops up with an opinion. The article is entitled: LeBrun: Tax cap denies a ‘sound, basic’ education system and is basically a commentary (now you know how much fact it contains).

We’ll just post a couple of quotes from the article with some short comments, and you can make the rest of the connections and draw your own conclusions.

The governor’s beloved 2 percent tax cap was challenged in a lawsuit filed by the New York State United Teachers union in state Supreme Court in Albany. The suit offers multiple arguments why the tax cap is unconstitutional, asserting that it locks in unequal funding between have- and have-not school districts across the state, ”while pushing many school districts to the brink of educational and financial insolvency,” in the words of NYSUT President Dick Iannuzzi. [my emphasis]nysut

NYSUT Union Rep at RCS

 Right away, you should see red: our beloved special interest, rape the taxpayer organization, the New York State United Teachers, NYSUT, godparents of our very own teachers union lackey, Matt “the Mutt” Miller, is bringing the suit. Now you know it’s not good news for the taxpayer no matter what Lebrun says. But you must already know what’s coming next: doom, gloom, suspicion, dark days ahead, you’re losing your schools, your children are going to be eaten by aliens, etc. You know, the same-old-same-old whenever NYSUT raises its double-dealing-double-dipping head.

It is irrefutable that the effect of the incomplete tax cap passed in June 2011, while politically popular and a contributor to the governor’s high standing, has been disastrous for school districts and local governments.

Your tax dollars at work.

Your tax dollars at work.

That self-destructive attitude and the greed of the teachers union and its members, the teachers, are what’s killing the districts. Millions are being spent on the mismanaged, wasteful money pits we call schools that are turning out idiots at graduation. Why? Because the majority of parents and taxpayers are indifferent and don’t get involved with how their districts are managed or how their elected officials in Albany and Washington are turning their backs on their communities.

Just read some of the articles on this blog and you’ll know too well why our schools and local governments are turning into liquid waste.

Sadly, we are watching a catastrophe unfold that will deeply affect many of our children at their most vulnerable ages, and which will have consequences for the rest of their lives.

The State Education Department has warned that between 100 and 200 school districts will be insolvent within two years.

Mr "Fred-in-a-Funk" LebrunWrites on Our Schools. DUH!

Mr “Fred-in-a-Funk” Lebrun
Writes on Our Schools.
DUH!

Lebrun must have been asleep for the last several years! The catastrophe has been unfolding for some time now, Mr Lebrun. We’re right in the epicenter of it. DUH! Yes, Mr Lebrun, we are all aware of that fact but not many of our readers, sadly, have the guts or the balls to open their eyes, tighten their belts, and turn on the lights to see the writing on the wall. Again, read our articles and learn why the schools suck, why the kids are idiots, why the board of education is stymied in getting anything really effective done with the teachers special interests working against them, and why the local communities are drowning in their own raw sewerage with Coeymanazis like the town of Coeymans board, the local Coeymanazi police force, and the Coeymanazis on the street doing everything they can to have it their way or no way. Do you really think that business want to operate in a backwoods, Neanderthal community that is so business-unfriendly, corrupt, or that families want to live like that. Look around you and watch the exodus!

The multi-year highway to insolvency for many of them will be already littered with discarded teachers and administrators, dropped programs and advanced placement courses required for college admission, and cuts, cuts and more cuts impacting the core teaching mission.

Look, this didn’t happen over night, people! And it’s not going to get cured over night, either. What Lebrun is writing is crap, to be very honest. He, like so many others, are doing your bloody thinking for your and framing your life according to their views! YOU NEED TO DO YOUR OWN THINKING. BUT FIRST YOU HAVE TO GET BACK TO REALITY!

Reality.

Reality.

Look, you bunch of lemmings: You can’t keep taking without putting back in, people!

  • Do you drive your car without replacing the fuel used? Of course not. You’d be stuck in nowhere in no time!
  • Do you drive your car with a flat tire? Of course not, you’d cause more and more damage to the car the longer you drive! What was a small repair now is a major disaster!
  • Do you keep driving at 55 mph when you enter a 30 mph speed zone, even when warned that speed is checked by radar? Of course you don’t. If you did you’d lose your driving privileges in a very short time and be taking a mortgage to pay your fines and super-fines!So why do you drive the economy by taking away without replacing or not making necessary repairs and adjustments? Why do you damage the environment without repairing the damage you cause?

Why do you keep taking from the cookie jar without replacing the cookies and then complain that there are no more cookies? That’s the simplified state of facts. It all starts with Y-O-U!

Yes, the fast track to damnation will be littered with teachers, programs, administrators, advance placement programs. Why? Because they are not working and are costing an arm and a leg. They are NOT WORKING and are killing what does work: You and Me!

Look teachers are nice but they’re out for themselves. To think differently means you have your head in a fog. What the teachers don’t grab to make their lives easier the teachers union will grab for them. Guess who’s going to foot the bill for the $80-120 thousand plus salaries plus enhancements, plus benefits, plus summers off, and some very hefty pensions (after they move out of the district, like former interim superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith has done after padding her pension!). You and Me!

You’ve been paying for programs and administrators that have been substandard and that’s not only in this district. Sure they have to go! You’d have to go if you did on your job what they manage to do and stay employed! Abusing students. Indifference to student welfare. Bullying students. Having students bully other students. Just being jerks.

And “advance placement programs?” What a load of purest propagandist rubbish! Why isn’t “advanced” the standard like it is in Germany, Japan, Russia? I’ll give you a little hint: because parents like to delude themselves into thinking that little Johnny or Ginny is something special. WAKE UP! They’re far from special and in comparison to students in other countries they’re far below average! Our colleges are crap, too, because they attempt to educate the average who come to the colleges with below average abilities. Why? Because our colleges are not in the business of education…they’re more in the business of doing research for corporations or are in the real estate business! Our kids get advance placement on the international stupids list!

There are plenty of statistics and studies to document just how poorly the American student is doing in comparison with Europe and Asia. It ain’t pretty. Here are just two: Alliance for Excellent Education-Fact Sheet (March 2008), USA Today: In ranking, U.S. students trail global leaders. It’s downright embarrassing! And to think that with a graduation rate in a mid-70% range at the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk  Central School District  our per student expenditure is more than $21,000, we should be asking some very hard questions, indeed!

Why is that, parents? Don’t blame it all on the self-serving teachers. The teachers want the same thing you do: cars, houses, money, vacations, time off, etc. Blame it on yourselves for your own greed and indifference to the welfare of your offspring! Try parenting instead of getting more stuff. Try socializing your asocial cave creatures. Try teaching them respect (for others and themselves). Try teaching them how to be members of a community. Try teaching them how to love and be loved (and I don’t mean loving their own stuff or someone else’s–translate “stuff” any way you please). Give them a home not a car to live in. They don’t need A.S.A.P. programs or Teen Centers, they need parents. Real moms and dads!  Need I go on or are you finally catching on.

Or what's left of it.

Or what’s left of it.

As for the so-called adults among us: You had a brain at birth but through chronic misuse or unuse it’s gotten a bit screwed up. Maybe you’re reading the Times Union pulp fiction too much, or watching your MidHudson Cable ripoff too long. But you really need to make some corrections in your own lives, in the community, and then you can start on the bigger picture. But first you have to relearn how to use what gray matter might still be left after exposure to the fiction you have been fed by the media, by your leaders, by yourselves.

And the Times Union and the other media can start with themselves or suffer the consequences. The local elected officials who have been screwing you for years have to go. What we need is an ethical print and electronic media system that publishes true facts and less mistake, error and fear. The media and the government is misusing you and misinforming you, controlling you by making you suspicious of others and keeping you anxious and fearful. You actually have control if you’d only take it.

You need to get involved, though. You have to stop leaving it to someone else. That’s not how it works. Or you can stay stuck where you are. It’s your choice.

Sequel to “Land of Goofy”: Thanks Coeymans Town Board!

We Recently Posted an Article about the Stupidity of the Coeymans Town Board Approving a 15-year Exclusive Franchise Award to MidHudson Cable.

The real problem with village idiots is that they get elected to public office!

The real problem with village idiots is that they get elected to public office!

We were astonished that the town of Coeymans town board could do something so stupid and so damaging to the residents of Coeymans and we posted our insights on Ravena-Coeymans: The Land Of Goofy! Screwed Again by Coeymans Town Board! If you haven’t read it yet, click the link.

Of course, the town of Coeymans board members didn’t utter a peep in response. In fact, they should all have been tarred and feathered and run out of town.

Supervisor: Stephen FlachBoardmembers:Peter E. Mast,Thomas E. Dolan, Dawn Rogers,Thomas A. Boehm

Boardmembers:Peter E. Mast,Thomas E. Dolan, Dawn Rogers,Thomas A. Boehm

Maybe you should e-mail your town board and let them know what you think about their brilliant deals:

pmasti@coeymans.org

Dawn Rogers
drogers@coeymans.org
Current Term expires December 31, 2013

Thomas A. Boehm
tboehm@coeymans.org
Current Term expires December 31, 2013

But it doesn’t stop there. We, at least did some of the research and obtained some really scary numbers for you neighbors in the town of Coeymans to choke on.

With the cooperation of some interested readers, we found out that MidHudson Cablevision does offer an Internet connection service only for customers who don’t want to use MidHudson’s television offerings. But look at the cost:

  • MidHudson Cable television package includs cable TV and Internet: about $78.00/month
  • MidHudson’s stand-alone cable Internet (Internet only, no TV) connection ( repeat: no TV service): about $73.00/month

So, it looks like there’s no savings at all if you just want an Internet connection only, like most other providers like Time Warner provide at reduced cost. MidHudson Cablevision is going to gouge you no matter what you want, they do it because they can. The town boards of Coeymans (and New Baltimore) have seen to that.

But wait! Maybe the brilliant elected Coeymans town board negotiated special substantial discounts for Coeymans residents owing to the extraordinary 15-year contract. Or did the Coeymans town board negotiate to obtain frozen rates for 5 or 10 years so that residents would not have to face constant increases and added service charges. After all, that would be fair. MidHudson gets a 15-years exclusive concession for providing cable and Internet service, and residents get special rates or frozen rates. Do you think that’s what happened?  Let’s ask. You ask and I’ll ask.

But any report would be incomplete if we didn’t look at speed of service. But that’s kinda difficult if you don’t know how to do the number crunching, because the suppliers, especially Midhudson Cablevision, play the misinformation game here, too! Here are some examples (we’ve converted the megas and the kilos for you):

Time Warner offers the same service, 3 Mb for about $29.99. Midhudson Cablevision offers the same thing to us for $72.95!

Here’s an interesting comparison, too: the average cost for equivalent services costs:

  • in the USA: $47.00/month
  • in South Korea: $38.00/month

Ever wonder why that is? Ever wonder why we’re years behind Europe and Asia with our cell phones and Internet services? Ask your elected officials. Ask them why US Corporations are holding back and why the US government is suppressing cleaner faster services! Think it might have something to do with money and greed?

But the insanity of giving one supplier exclusive rights to the community for 15 years is beyond belief! Looks like no other supplier will ever consider coming to Coeymans or New Baltimore and that means we keep our primitive, second-rate services for a real long time. Now that the Coeymans board has handed the gift of a 15-year exclusive franchise to backwoods MidHudson  no real provider is going to make the investment to come into the area and compete with MidHudson, so we’re dead in the water, folks!

Here are some interesting sites you might want to visit to do your own reading:

Coeymanazi Building Inspector Conrad: Good fences make good neighbors! More Laws Better…

Local News Is Fast Becoming Scarce  If Not Ultra-Commonplace. A Sure Sign that The Times Useless and Its Step-cousin, the Ravena News Herald are Scandal-Starved.

boys on fenceJudging from the front page of the Ravena News Herald and from the items–they’re not stories, actually, nor are they professional journalism, by the way–the local-bulletin-board-wannabe-newspaper is fast becoming advertisements in disguise  while continuing as a local propaganda rag. (Example: “Free” kempo karate demos at library for children; parents will pay after the kids get a taste. Can’t a library just be a library anymore?) Just look at the latest edition of the Ravena News Herald to see what we mean.

In a front-page piece on the “Scouts”  meeting in the Roman Catholic Church of St Patrick in Ravena, we read that

“…dozens of community members gathered at St. Patrick’s Church in Ravena to witness the Cub and Boy Scouts of Troop 1067 reaffirm their commitment to reverence, “to be reverent toward God, faithful in his [Ed. note: God’s?] religious duties and to respect the beliefs of others” in accordance with the law of the Scout put forth by the Boy Scouts of America.”

That bit of scurrilous reporting which, if you read the news outside of Ravena-Coeymans, is the epitome of misinformation and hypocrisy, given the BSA’s refusal to stop being a pillar of discrimination, exclusion and hate, where even the federal government has long ago legislated against such practices. I think it’s the part about to “respect the beliefs of others,” that got my attention. But more on that some other time.

But the most glaring first-page gaffe is the caption under the large photo on the first page. (Can you find it?) More about this later on.

This was followed by a rather lengthy “prayer” read by Brian Searles, BSA troop master, which runs more than 144 words and takes up 2/3 of the first page text. That “prayer” runs along the lines of the Prayer of St Francis of Assisi that starts, “Lord, make me an instrument of your peace…”

“Dear Lord, bless all those everywhere who contribute to shape the hearts, minds and bodies of young people. Let us remember what they have taught and apply it daily.”

I have some serious questions as to the “what they have been taught,” and if the scout leader is referring to the explicit policy of discrimination and hate espoused, defended, and ipso factotaught” by the Boy Scouts of America espouse with regard to certain groups. Searles continues:

“When facing deceit and dishonesty, let us be trustworthy. If we see hypocrisy and faithlessness, let us be loyal. Where disregard for others and where materialism prevails, let us be helpful. In an atmosphere of ill manner, let us be courteous. Where some measure manliness in brutality and crudeness, let us be kind. Though law-breaking and rule-scoffing are common, let us be obedient. While others grumble and grouch, let us be cheerful. In an environment blighted by waste and extravagance, let us be thrifty. When confronted with danger and temptation, let us be brave. As we see filth and pollution everywhere, let us be clean. While witnessing impiety and irreligion, let us remember to be reverent. In short, in a world that has for generation after generation lamented the lack of good examples, let us Scouts stand out, grow up and be real adults.”

Clumsy as Mr Searles plagiarized prayer might be, his complaints are quite clear–we all know what he’s talking about, don’t we?

Actually, had Mr Searles simply read the Prayer of St Francis, maybe someone in the group would have more completely appreciated the intended prayerfulness of the moment and would have actually attempted to live the admonitions promoted by the holy example of the saint, and centuries later distilled shortly before the First World War into the now popular and familiar verses. (To read and download a copy of the Franciscan Peace Prayer I’ve prepared, click this link: The Story Behind the Peace Prayer of St Francis )

It’s rather ironic, too, that these lofty confessions of what our society and community have come to represent: “deceit and dishonesty,” hypocrisy and faithlessness,” “disregard for others,” “materialism,” “ill manner” ( must admit, I’m at a loss to really understand what that is supposed to mean), “manliness in brutality and crudeness,” “law-breaking and rule-scoffing,” where our neighbors “grumble and grouch,” and in a culture that confronts us daily with “danger and temptation,” where we find “filth and pollution everywhere,” and in our very churches we witness “impiety and irreligion” (irreligion is an interesting word meaning hostility towards religion. I don’t think that’s the problem though.), “lack of good examples.” In a word, doesn’t this sound like the routine in this community, in the local schools, in the entire Smalbany  region? The entire country–with few exceptions? And let’s ask ourselves how long the Scouts have been in the RCS district? And where do they go and what do they do if they graduate from our schools, move on from the scouts?

We also read in that same issue of the Ravena News Herald that–like Ravena-Coeymans–there’s no news in New Baltimore. We say this because on page 4 (it’s interesting to note that in the News Herald, page 2 reports on “Around the Town” news from Albany, Vorheesville, Rotterdam (?!?), under the heading “New Baltimore,” we read that the ailing, lonely, only church left in New Baltimore is hosting a food and fellowship luncheon. We then turn to page 9 of that same issue and read an exact duplicate of the article. Nice editing. But my point is this: Has New Baltimore descended, deteriorated to such an extent that there’s nothing better to report than to repeat an announcement of a church luncheon?!?

RCS residents pay a buck to read that sort of amateurish, poorly written, unnewsworthy stuff

So we finally come to the stuff of our title, “Coeymanazi Building Inspector Conrad: Good fences make good neighbors?” How does that fit in with the Ravena News Herald and its misshapen and moronic reporting? Read on…

R. Frost (1874-1963)Probably Turning in his Grave!

R. Frost (1874-1963)
Probably Turning in his Grave!

In a misinformative and pitifully distorted version of both American literature and reality, idiot reporter Bryan Rowzee, in the front-age item, “Coeymans. Keeping Coeymans on the map,” Rowzee starts off his item with a quote from Robert Frost’s memorable poem, Mending Wall. But in true News Herald Fashion, Rowzee misinterprets and so falsifies to his readers the meaning of the poem, and does so by taking one familiar line out of the context of the whole poem, similar to what’s done business as usual in the RCS community.

For starters, the poem is a lament of fences, how walls and fences are something that are unnatural:

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.

And throughout the poem Frost questions the necessity for fences and even characterizes the neighbor who builds the fence (in the poem a stone wall) as being

…like an old-stone savage armed.
He moves in darkness

In fact, Mr Rowzee, Frost’s poem has nothing good to say about walls or fences; in fact, the entire poem is a statement against walls and fences! Mr, Frost, describes his neighbor likening him to a menacing caveman as he puts a rock into the wall, and repeats, “Good fences makes good neighbors.” So, either Mr Rowzee is trying to be cute and is using the Frost quote in total ignorance of what the poem actually says or, Mr Rowzee is being sneaky and using the quote to ridicule Larry Conrad in the article. Difficult to say unless you read the item in the News Herald, and until you reach the paragraph

“Conrad said the town loves growth and wants growth but needs growth that follows the laws created to help the whole community. He said he hopes that this business and others will benefit from clearer zoning maps and believes this may lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.”

Mr Conrad has a motley history of contradictions and obstruction; he’s not much different from any other small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty official. Of course, Mr Conrad loves walls and fences, they’re unnatural and intended to isolate and obstruct. He’s been building unethical walls in the Coeymans community  for years and has gotten very good at it.

Moreover, there’s nothing small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty officials like more than passing laws that make them appear more powerful and make their jobs more secure, while at the same time make everyone else’s lives more complicated, and unpleasant, increase the already insufferable red tape and corruption in the area, and offer more opportunities for the small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty official to do “favors” for special people.

Like so many in the Ravena-Coeymans élite, Conrad talks out of both sides of his face

two-facedYes, Mr Larry Conrad, Coeymans Building Inspector, does come to us with a long history and a mighty load of dirty laundry in his baggage. The are some very unsavory legends about the connections between Larry Conrad and Bobo-cop Gerald “Jerry Dirty-Hands” Deluca, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (Deluca claims to be a consultant with the DEC. Consulting on what?), and a tract of land on Route 9w, a certain family of lawyers in Ravena (did I say “Biscone“?  Oops!), and an alleged shady deal made to bamboozle an elderly couple out of their property for a song. Greed was the motivation, of course. And the lawyer (did I say “Biscone” again?  Oops!), made it all seem legal. But when the deal collapsed and the property was sold to a local family for a fair price, the retaliation began! And who was at the center of the “legal” harassment and retaliation? Why do you need to ask? Mr Larry Conrad.

Like so many in the Ravena-Coeymans élite, George Dardiani (violates the Code of Judicial Ethics), Ravena mayor John Bruno (plays loosey-goosey with public money), Cathy Deluca (runs a close second to her double-talking husband and has a teflon surface with her supporters), Michael Biscone, (is he village attorney or does he just bill the village? Whatever he is, he’s great at covering some apparent real conflicts of interest. We’ll FOIL his invoices for services and the payment vouchers from the village very soon!) and the list could go on and on,  Conrad talks out of both sides of his face, but as a made Coeymanazi, he’s loyal to the godfathers and to his protectors.

So you can really understand, given Conrad’s associations, history, cronies, and the mob he hangs out with, we take a very close look at statements like “the town … wants growth but needs growth that follows the laws created to help the whole community. He said he hopes that this business and others will benefit from clearer zoning maps and believes this may lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.”

Conrad apparently believes that more laws controlling what residents and neighbors do and “help the community,” and that more laws “will lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.” Which side of his mouth is this coming from, I ask?

Mr Conrad, the only way that misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and village/town officials can be lessened is not by creating more laws but by streamlining the administration. This may very well entail eliminating the village of Ravena and consolidating it with the hamlet of Coeymans under one single administration, an administration that will first of all put an end to the corruption and coercion that has hallmarked the Ravena-Coeymans system of oppression for decades! It will involve elimination of the money pit and den of thugs we popularly call the Coeymans Police Department and purging the crooks and dumbos calling themselves law enforcement! Replacing the Coeymans Police Department with a professionally trained corps of law enforcement like the Albany County Sheriff’s team would be the wisest move ever for this community.

Before you create new laws or bring in new systems, Mr Conrad, there’s a hell of a lot of healing that has to be done to “lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.” 

The Ravena-Coeymans community has been hemorrhaging small businesses while being poisoned by the large corporations and oppressed by the special-interests in and around Albany that are feeding and fostering the small-minded, small-town, power-drunk petty officials who all believe they have their positions for life and can hand them over to their designated heirs.  And the Conrad-Biscone-Deluca-Bruno-Persico cliques have all but silenced the democratic process in the town of Coeymans. Clean out village and town hall completely and maybe the fresher air in the town of Coeymans will attract business-health conscious entrepreneurs. To date all that the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans have attracted are corpse flies feeding on the dead and dying local economy. What businesses are left standing after the Conrad Crew and the Coeymanazis have finished are disillutioned, angry, and suspicious of anything that comes out of the village and town halls!

Larry Conrad hasn’t a clue what he’s talking about! Before you create new laws or bring in new systems, Mr Conrad, there’s a hell of a lot of healing that has to be done to “lessen misunderstandings and strained relationships between community members and town officials.” The TRUST and CONFIDENCE in local government has to be re-established after decades of a local corrupt machine of self-interests and special interests have made this entire community into a community of paranoid recluses! Thank the  Brunos, the Biscones, the Delucas, the Warners, the Darlingtons, the Teresis, the Neris, the Rotellos, the Persicos, and Yes! the Conrads of the area, and their Coeymanazi minions.

Rather than Building Fences or Proselytizing that “Good Fences Make Good Neighbors” or that Laws Lessen Misunderstanding and Heal Strained Relationships, the News Herald and the Scouts Should be Proactively Tearing Down Fences and Building Community in spite of the Hypocrites, Whether Religious, Social, or Political Hypocrites!

The Moment of Truth is NOW!Make Positive Changes Now. Tweak Later.

The Moment of Truth is NOW!
Make Positive Changes Now. Tweak Later.

So back to page 1 of the Ravena News Herald. We can start by not asking God to do what we ourselves are very capable of doing ourselves if we simply follow the ethical principles taught by the Gospels and especially the Beatitudes (Sermon on the Mount). If you’ve forgotten what they are, find a Bible and read them again, if you ever have read them. The entire law condenses down to, “Love God totally and love your neighbor as you love yourself!”

Careful How You "Pray"!

Careful How You “Pray”!

Misusing prayer to make a political appeal to empty hearts is a sacrilege and involving God in that conspiracy is blasphemy! In the precincts of a Roman Catholic sacred space used for secular purposes, the prayer should either not have been done or the real experts in screwing up prayer should have been invited to invoke the petition to the divine: either the pastor of the Roman Catholic Church of St Patrick or the bishop’s minion, the deacon at St Patrick’s. At least the screwed up prayer would have been screwed up professionally. But to have such a “prayer” come from the lips of a representative of an organization that conspicuously and publicly discriminates and offends the dignity of members of the community is an affront to fair play and justice.

But certainly, the merit that can be taken from the so-called prayer is the enumeration of the darkness that the speaker finds in the community, society, and the world. But just publicly displaying awareness of those evils, evils that are right outside our doors, is not enough. Solutions are needed but no solutions are offered. That doesn’t work for me at all.

The newspapers at one time played an important educational role–they now churn out chum, crap!

The public media have lost all sense of dignity and continue to fail in their obligations to the people of our communities. Where the public media, the newspapers, played an important role of sharing good information while playing fair, and demanding quality in the information they send out to the public–yes, the newspapers at one time played an important educational role–they now churn out chum, crap! The conspicuous cover photo accompanying the article, “Scouts reaffirm their faith in God in annual service,” regrettably demonstrates this point. In the caption we read: “Weblos of Pack 1067 illustrate the deadline sin of gluttony in a skit at the Scouts Own Service on Sunday.” What is a “deadline sin”? Doesn’t the editor know gluttony (actually intemperance in moral theological terms)  is a “deadly sin“? Shame on you!

Poor editing, poor attention to detail, poor reporting: No news in New Baltimore. Church luncheon announced instead and in two places. Shame on you News Herald and New Baltimore!

But giving Rowzee the benefit of doubt, maybe he was doing both tongue-in-cheek.

And again, the glaring ignorance of Mr Bryan Rowzee and his pitiful misrepresentation of a renowned American poet laureate’s poem, Mending Wall, reveals the deplorable level of teaching the humanities, even important American literature. Rowzee’s gaffe reveals two things at least: the carelessness and indifference of the print media in terms of accuracy and reliability of facts, even well-established facts, and the failure of our education system in teaching our American literary heritage to such an abominable degree that an allegedly “qualified” journalist (a term used very loosely, indeed, in this discussion), one whose prose is made public as if it were credible, doesn’t have an inkling of understanding of what he’s writing about. If Mr Rowzee knew anything of what he was writing about he would have used the line from the Robert Frost poem correctly, and Rowzee would certainly have known better than to have printed the Conrad quote. But giving Rowzee the benefit of doubt, maybe he was doing both tongue-in-cheek. We can only guess!

Throw the Jew Down the Well…

Update: We Scooped the Times Union AGAIN! After we published this article the Times Union published “Reply made in RCS tussle. School board member says claims in petition for removal are off-base.” (Kristen V. Brown) Read their follow-up article at RCS Tussle. Looks like the Times Union can’t even get something published on the Internet before we do! And the Times Union is still twisting the facts beyond recognition!

Borat Sings “Throw the Jew down the well so my country can be free…” Bigotry is Alive And Well in the USA and In Our Own Communities, and We Need A Brit To Tell Us!

You all have your own jews!

You all have your own jews!

Matt Miller, Activist-Atheist Teacher & NYSUT union rep at RCS, Submitted 107 pages of Total Nonsense to the NYSED Commissioner, Dr John B. King, Jr., and Makes Us All Look Ridiculous!

I’m not writing this blog to malign anyone or to defend anyone. I’m writing this blog because I’m so disgusted with what people like the Coeymanazis, the Unionazis, the corporations, and our crooks in government are doing to solidly good citizens. And I’m totally disgusted that those same solidly good citizens are letting themselves be victimized and submit to the abuse, misuse and lies. I’m further disgusted by the fact that when another solidly good citizen stands up and screams, “I’ve had enough of this shite!” that scoundrels like the Millers, Delucas, Biscones, BrunosDarlingtonsDolans, Ross’, Luckacovics, Coeymanazis, Unionazis, RCnaziS, and others come out and slander and libel him, and willfully misinform the public! In other words:

I AM TOTALLY DISGUSTED THAT THIS COMMUNITY IS PLAYING INTO THE LOCAL BORATS’ HANDS AND LOOKING FOR A “JEW,” SINGING

“THROW THE JEW DOWN THE WELL!”

“Throw the Jew down the well!
So my country can be free.
You must grab him by his horns,
Then we have a big party.”

(Click throw the jew down the well for the entire lyrics!)

"Throw the Jew Down the Well!"

“Throw the Jew Down the Well!”

(I’m also asking myself who the next Jew will be to go down the well? Will it be you, your neighbor, me?)

Well, Unionazi Matt “the Mutt” Miller has found some other bigots to join him and Selkirk resident Tavia Rauch, and some cowardly unidentified Cow-eymanazi, calling itself A.B.,  to join in Miller’s campaign of libel and retaliation against the RCS school board!

We see at least three obvious  reasons for his cowardly campaign:

  1. Revenge for having been given the boot as energy manager and losing his $18,000 dollars a year extra plus travel expenses paid by YOU taxpayers in addition to his $80,000 plus teacher salary. Greed is alive and well in RCS!the boot
  2. A desperate attempt by recruiting all the Coeymanazis and local lunatic RCnaziS to oust a duely elected board member so that the teachers clique and the teachers union, New York State United Teachers, can have a majority on the board and control your tax dollars and the school budget.
  3. An ego trip to get brownie points with his union and to keep stirring dissent and scandal in the RCS community. That’s the kind of person your darling teacher and union rep Matt Miller is! If things are peaceful, Matt’s right there to stir things up and keep your blood pressure up there!
  4. Actually, but he hasn’t caught on yet, stupid mutt that he is, he’s giving the district more rope to hang him…no one’s happy with him, he’s turned into a lone wolf, and the district will be very happy when he goes…one way or another but simply that he goes!

    Miller, Now.

    Miller, Now.

So, Matthew J. Miller a.k.a Matt “the Mutt”, official Unionazi of the RCS school district, has mad an ass of himself twice with his failed petition with Selkirk resident Tavia Rauch, which has sputtered out, and his complaint filed with the New York State Education Commissioner, Dr John B. King, Jr.

So the Brit tells us to throw the Jew down the well and our local Twit wants us to throw his “Jew” down the well!

Unionazi Matt Miller

Unionazi Matt Miller

Has Mr Miller a different set of standards that apply to himself and his friends and another that apply to people not in Mr Miller’s clique? For example, where was Matthew J. Miller when:

  • the polling and voting irregularities were happening?
  • the athletics coaches were abusing the athletes?
  • the bus drivers were refusing to transport students home?
  • all the bullying was happening (Oops! We know one of the answers to this one, don’t we? Matt Miller was inciting the bullying naming children of board of education members who opposed the school budget!)
  • students were being attacked by other students in the high school?
  • parents complain about teachers and athletics coaches’ misconduct? (We know the answer to this one, too! Matt Miller, as NYSUT teachers union rep, must protect the interests of the teachers and other members of his union, not students or students parents!)
  • multiple instances of overpayment in the tens of thousands of dollars to RCS CSD employees were discovered by auditors, in addition to other discrepancies? Did Miller step up to make a statement about that? (No, of course not! He actually was a double-dipper until the board of education canned him!)
  • And where was Miller when the wrestling team had to forfeit a match because of the foul mouthed comments of the coach?

Yup! We have some real classy role models in the RCS schools and Miller’s right on top of keeping the worst of the worst, including himself, sitting pretty.

Matt Miller and NYSUT at Work

Matt Miller and NYSUT at Work

Is being a so-called “sovereign citizen” worse than

  • Matt Miller, when he declares himself to be an atheist in the presence of students?
  • Matt Miller, when he incites students to abuse other students?
  • Matt Miller, when he abuses his position and violates sound ethical principles that apply to polling places and voting?
  • Matt Miller, when he unethically collects untold thousands of taxpayer dollars, in addition to his teacher salary, during the same time he’s supposed to be teaching? (That’s called double-dipping! The rest is triple-dipping (see next bullet)!)
  • Matt Miller, when he accepts a full teachers salary while doing only part-time teaching, and taxpayers are paying for his time to do NYSUT union work?

Is the fact that a citizen-resident is appealing and aggrieving your tax assesments in the courts, exercising a right we all have (or should have), and doing something we can (or should be able to) do under the Constition. Is that worse than:

  • What’s going on in the village of Ravena and the scandalous abuse of public interests in the matter of the Ravena Fitness Center?
  • What’s going on in the village of Ravena and the scandalous abuse of the public good in the matter of the RCS Community Library relocation?

    triad of terror

    The Terror Triad

  • What’s been going on in the town of Coeymans police department and the Coeymanazis’ abuse of residents’civil rights?
  • What’s going on in the village and town courts with the unethical conduct of the village and town justices, constantly under investigation for ethics violations?
  • What’s going on with the Biscone and Teresi law practices in the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans? Conflicts of interest and billings as private attorneys doubling as village and town attorneys?
  • The favoritism and nepotism that has been going on for decades in the village of Ravena village government?
  • The bizarre financial mismanagement in the village of Ravena and the glaring silence that followed the audit scandals, when mayor John T. Bruno’s response was, “I didn’t know that!“? Good Lord! John T Bruno has been on the Ravena village board since 1976 and has been mayor for the past 20 years! And he “doesn’t know” what’s going on in village finances? Has he been braindead or in a coma for the past 20-30 years?!?
  • The fact that Sabic, a Saudi Arabian corporation is deeply entrenched in the RCS district and is on the RCS school board! Sabic! SABIC (Saudi Arabian Basic Industries Corporation) (Arabic: الشركة السعودية للصناعات الأساسية ، سابك‎ ) is a manufacturing company, active in chemicals and intermediates, industrial polymers, fertilizers and metals. It is the largest public company in Saudi Arabia and the Saudi government still owns 70% of its shares. SABIC is the largest company in the Middle East. By the way, Saudi Arabia is Osama bin Laden’s country of origin and where his family still lives! But where money is concerned people seem to go blind unless it’s a “sovereign citizen”! (Editor’s Note, this fact is not important to Matt Miller or to NYSUT because James Latter is married to teacher Amanda Latter; in order for Miller to go after you, apparently  you have to be a non-teacher, a kid, or black!)
  • The fact that another RCS CSD board of education member, James Latter is a financial analyst at SABIC? That’s what I meant when I said Sabic is on the RCS board of education! Does that mean James Latter has terrorist connections, too, Mr Miller?
  • What about when one of Matt Millers co-Coeymanazis Donna Leput-Hommel made the statement on Facebook that residents should punish businesses with their checkbooks if they don’t support the Yes! vote in the last school budget elections. So, with the economic situation the way it is in this country, with the district hemorrhaging jobs, residents, and businesses, Matt Miller’s gang and the Coeymanazis want to punish the businesses that are left! Nice agenda! (P.s. Anybody punishing Sabic? Or is it just the American small businesses and residents that Donna Leput-Hommel and the Coeymanazis want to “punish”? ) And you’re worried sick about some self-declared “sovereign citizen” who’s fighting his tax bill?!? Asshats!

    The Real Terrorists

    The Real Terrorists
    at our board of education meetings

Matt Miller’s petition to the NYSED commissioner includes a large  number of Internet pages in which we get to read the word “terrorist.” Matt Miller is trying, albeit unsuccessfully, to use unverified, lunatic, propaganda sources to support his petition. This is nothing new, though. Miller and the Albany Times Union have been calling a peaceful, quite, unassuming citizen a “terrorist,” since day one.  (By the way, according to a National Safety Council report you are 8x more likely to be killed by a policeman than by a terrorist attack!)

The bulk of the petition recites tax claims and tax codes. Tell us, Matt Miller, since when have you started working for the IRS, the Department of Taxation and Finance, or the local tax collector? Have you earned a CPA no one yet knows about. Fact is, you, Matt Miller,  have absolutely no standing whatsoever to argue tax questions or issues in your complaint. None, Mr Miller. You’re totally out of order! Not that that is news to anyone. But you seem to insist on pointing out your stupidity and ignorance to the world. Why is that, Mr Miller? (SearchAdult Children of Dysfunctional Families” for the answer.)

The term “terrorism” has become highly emotionally  charged.  Government and government agencies take advantage of that fact when they want to manipulate public opinion; so do Matt Miller and NYSUT! Furthermore, its indiscriminate and careless use misinforms the public and creates an unnecessary state of anxiety, rouses suspicion and incites hate mongers. That’s exactly what Matt Miller, Unionazi, and his mob want to do when they play up the fictional association between “sovereign citizen” and “terrorist”! Totally misleading, totally misinforming, and totally w-r-o-n-g!

By definition, a terrorist is not peaceful, does not act on his own behalf, does not support the community in which he lives. A terrorist incites and attempts to change entire groups and countries to political change and revolution. A terrorist incites his followers and others to violence to bring about change and to spread his ideologies. A terrorist uses any means possible to manipulate public opinion in favor of his group or movement.

Don’t these methods sound an awful lot like the methods being used by Matt Miller and the Coeymanazis? Well, most common definitions of terrorism refer only to:

  •  violent acts or inciting violent acts
  • acts that are intended to create anxiety or fear (“terror”)
  • acts that are perpetrated for a religious, political or, ideological goal
  • acts that deliberately target or disregard the physical or psychological sense of  safety or security, well-being of  civilians.

Sounds an awful lot like what Matt Miller and the Coeymanazis are doing. But it doesn’t sound much like what Mr Rodney Krzykowski is doing. So, given the above points, who are the terrorists?

In November 2004, a United Nations Secretary General report described terrorism as any act “intended to cause … serious … harm to civilians … with the purpose of intimidating a population or compelling a government or … an organization to do or abstain from doing any act.” The serious harm does not have to be physical injury or death; it can be psychological or economic, it can be intended to cause anxiety or distrust in a community, it can be intended to intimidate citizens or residents, or for wrongful reasons to compel a government or organization to act or not to act.

Moreover, since 1994, the United Nations General Assembly has repeatedly condemned terrorist acts using the following political description of terrorism (paraphrased):  “Malicious acts intended or calculated to provoke a state of fear and anxiety in the general public, a group of persons, or particular ersons for political purpose are under any circumstances unjustifiable, no matter what the considerations of a political, philosophical, ideological, racial, ethnic, religious or any other nature that may be invoked to justify them.”

Terrorist or terrorism as a word can be summed up in the saying, “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.Imagine, Martin Luther King or Malcolm X, Mahatma Ghandi, Jesus Christ could all be called terrorists by Matt Miller’s definition.

Matt Miller doesn’t seem to have much use for the democratic process, especially the process of democratic voting by residents. His latest shenanigans and attempts to deprive voters of their rights by attempting to libel a sitting board member out of office is not the only time Miller thought the majority of local voters were dumbasses and didn’t know what they were doing. Miller and his RCnaziS and Coeymanazi friends seem to think that if it isn’t their way or their mob’s way, it’s the wrong way. (Editor’s Note: We’ve already written about Matt Miller’s comments on FaceBook criticizing the democratic voting process when the candidates he and his NYSUT teachers union lost the board of elections in 2011!)

And wasn’t it Matt Miller who was quoted by the Times Union, “Matthew Miller, president of the RCS Teachers Association, said the hiring of McCartney would bring ridicule to the district.” The only thing that brings ridicule to this district is asshat teachers like Matt Miller. In fact, hiring Dr Alan R. McCartney looks like the best thing to have happened to this RCS school district in decades! Really, how many of you readers would now agree with Miller’s statement?

Racist-Dog-Granny-CartoonAnd wasn’t it Matt Miller who was involved in the retaliatory, racist, and scandalous conspiracy to harrass and remove principal Hakim Jones, an African American, and to get the job for Miller’s wife, Karen Miller? Only after Jones filed a complaint and grievance was that plan foiled! Nice role model, Miller. I wonder, how does a racist, atheist, union rep stack up against a so-called “sovereign citizen” who minds his own business and volunteers his time to improve the school district?

We’ve demanded the petition that Matt Miller sent to Dr John B. King, Jr., New York State Commissioner of Education. The petition was filed by Miller and an unidentified party, A.B., and the New York State United Teachers union, the union that Miller represents in the RCS district. The fizzled out idiots’ petition signed by a handful of local loonies and a number of people outside the district, including multiple signatures, and even a dog signed it, is yet another example of the kind of crap this moron Matt Miller is cramming down peoples’ throats.

The Miller petition to Dr King is 107 pages long and consists of 83 numbered statements or allegations. It’s Miller’s idea but was drawn up by the NYSUT teachers union lawyers. Now, do you think the NYSUT teachers union is pursuing this for YOUR benefit? If you do, I have a bridge I’d like to sell you!

ignoranceThe petition is totally nonsense! And, guess what: Miller and his co-conspirators includes about 92 pages of “exhibits,” mostly printouts of tax receipts and a number of Internet downloads that are obviously included to convince some half-wit that there’s a terrorist loose and serving on the RCS school board! All the Miller complaint to Dr King says is: “I agreed with my tax bill and I paid my taxes. Mr K. didn’t agree with his tax bill and so went to court.” The name-calling in the petitions and the rest of the lunatic documents are simply distractions from the fact that there is no case or legal basis for Miller wasting time and money on all of this. Miller is being paid by this district to teach and he’s just being a union nuisance. Is this why you’re paying him more almost $90,000 a year? Is this why he’s given a reduced teaching load at the RCS high school? He’s the terrorist by definition and we’re paying him! What does that make us?????

cryng libertyYes, I read the whole thing, I’m sorry to say. All I can say is this: Lady Liberty, after tossing her cookies, is still weeping bitterly. Lady Liberty is weeping because people like Miller and his Coeymanazis, and the NYSUT teachers union, have thrown the United States Constitution on a garbage pile and have set it aflame! Miller and his Coeymanazis and the NYSUT teachers union are misusing and abusing the grievance and complaint process for wrongful purposes, for purposes for which it was not intended. What’s worse is the fact that we have a person, Matt Miller, who is playing both sides of the fence from a trusted position, and has consistently abused that trust. That, people, is common knowledge in this district. We also have a union doing the same thing. Unions were once the champions of the working class; now they’re self-centered, lobbying, power brokers with multi-million dollar budgets, who trample the working class! And NYSUT is one of the worst because it represents the interests of a group that considers itself to be superior, to be an elite class; to hell with working parents and the underclasses, in other words. Yes, Lady Liberty is crying her eyes out right now, watching her children suffer abuse and lies at the hands of the elite!

From where I’m watching, dear readers, it’s not the so-called “sovereign citizen” who is the terrorist in this community, in this school district, its Matt Miller, his Coeymanazi supporters, and the NYSUT teachers union! That bunch of terrorists have to GO! not the “sovereign citizen!” 

You can watch the Borat “Throw the Jew Down the Well” clip here. We’d like to note, however, that the irony is that Borat is a Jew and he’s actually poking fun at all the bigots of the world who are singing the same tune but for their own “jews”. Just look at the audience’s faces in the beginning and at the end. The change is diabolical! Now, think about who your “Jew” is!

Update: Some readers have asked to see the documents filed by Matthew J. Miller and the RCS CSD answer. You can view them at the links below:
