outraged not paying attentionBut How Can So Many People Be Crying About the Election Results if They Didn’t Vote for the Crooks? Something isn’t right in Coeymans!

The trash bags are back! Dithering Tom Dolan, a farce of a boardmember, caused a stir a couple of years ago when he was the subject of a scandal revolving around his tampering with absentee ballots from individuals receiving benefits from his Choices program in Ravena. Tom Dolan has been the subject of several scandals since then. Most recently he leaked a confidential Comptroller’s draft that his crony scoundrel Jim Youmans played to the hilt.

How quickly the residents and voters of the town of Coeymans forget that both Jim Youmans and Rick Touchette had been in public office but were dumped by Coeymans voters just about 2 years ago. They weren’t worth re-election then so what’s changed since? Only that they were involved in more scandals and unlawful conduct; is that what gets a democrap elected in Coeymans?

Well, the only thing that has changed is that they added another scandal to their list: Dolan, Touchette and Phil Crandall were all involved in the ticket fixing scam that forced Phil Crandall to resign from elected office in disgrace, never again to run for judicial office. All of them, Dolan, Touchette and Crandall were tight together and involved in getting and giving illegal favors that forced Crandall to resign from the judgeship! But you voted Tom Dolan and Rick Touchette back into office.  Even worse still, you put bully Jim Youmans back where you didn’t want him a couple of years ago! How can you do that, Coeymans?

Didn’t you read our factsheets on the candidates? Read them now and weep, stupids! Click here: What You Need to Know Before Voting on November 3rd.

Coeymans Voters Pumped Raw Sewerage into Town Hall! Dolan, Youmans, Touchette

On November 3rd Coeymans Voters Pumped Raw Sewerage into Town Hall!
Dolan, Youmans, Touchette

So what do Coeymans voters, morons that they are, do? They re-elect scoundrels to represent them and to govern the town of Coeymans. So what’s the plan here, people? You’re bitching that the town is going to the dogs. You make some progress in forcing two dirty cops, Dirty Hands Jerry Deluca and his dumpling Gregory Darlington into retirement. The police department is shining now, a real part of the community, saving money and working with the community. The town of Coeymans is in the black with the 2015 budget! And so you bunch of dullwits go and put a damper on it all by re-electing a dithering idiot loser, Tom Dolan, and then electing two known crooks and scoundrels, Rich Touchette and Jim Youmans. That’s just what the doctor ordered to fix Coeymans, people, a great police chief and an honest police department with crooks and bullies on the town board! Congratulations, you’re all now charter members of the DUMBASS CLUB.

How is it possible that Coeymans voters could put that crook Touchette in the Albany county legislature. He’s listed as one of the plaintiffs in a case that is trying to kill economic development in Coeymans; do you really think he’s going to do better in Albany? If he’s so great, why didn’t you re-elect him to the town board in 2013? Short memories or brain dead voters kill communities. You’re well on your way, Coeymans.

Apart from demonstrating that you’re all a bunch of terminal retards and dumb as a rock, the only other alternative is this: You’ve been had, Coeymans! Tom Dolan and his welfare parasites, the ghetto on the hill, sold their votes for benefits. That’s the only other way to explain this situation. It’s the only way a halfway sane community could possibly justify such dumbass election results: The Coeymans dumbocrap party used every dishonest and villainous trick in the book to get the votes they needed to keep Coeymans in the democrap strangle-hold and part of the democrat political machine run by the Albany democrat mafia. And that’s exactly what Tom Dolan and his democrap thugs did, in fact!

Dolan and Youmans show Coeymans voters what they have to offer.

Dolan and Youmans show Coeymans voters what they have to offer.

Coeymans, you really have to call for an investigation of this election. It couldn’t have been more crooked. No sane community could possibly have elected such a bunch of crooks, bullies and scoundrels without some unlawful help from the party leadership. This is outrageous and beyond suspicious!

COEYMANS VOTERS NEED TO DEMAND A RECALL, A REVOTE! SAVE YOURSELF COEYMANS!

Those of you who read this blog had all the information you needed handed to you! All of it from court records, the media, from reliable sources. We even provided you with links to that important information so you could send it to your friends and neighbors. SHAME ON YOU ALL!!! YOU DESERVE EVERYTHING YOU GET FROM YOUR CROOKS AND BULLIES YOU ELECTED, AND THEN SOME. WE’LL BE WATCHING AND HAVING A GREAT LAUGH AT YOUR IMBECILIC CHOICES.

NOW, YOU CAN EITHER SIMMER IN YOUR OWN PUTRID JUICES OR YOU CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. THE ALTERNATIVE IS TO LET BULLY YOUMANS, CROOKS DOLAN AND THEIR CONIES PLAY YOU ALL FOR THE FOOLS YOU PROVED YOURSELVES TO BE.

AND NEW BALTIMORE HAD BETTER KEEP VERY CLOSE TABS ON THEIR ELECTION RESULTS. REPUBLICANS SEEM TO THINK THAT PLAYING BY THE RULES WILL GET THEM SOMEWHERE; HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE THEM TO REALIZE THAT THE DEMOCRAPS DON’T HAVE ANY RULES. TIME TO GET THE ATTORNEYS INVOLVED.

New Baltimore: Just a Hint of Corruption?

New Baltimore: Do Benway, Norris Recommend Conflict of Interest in Choosing Insurance Carriers!

Can you spell that for me? Sure: O-R-O-R-K-E + B-E-N-W-A-Y + N-O-R-R-I-S = CORRUPTION.

Can you spell that for me?
Sure: O-R-O-R-K-E + B-E-N-W-A-Y + N-O-R-R-I-S = CORRUPTION.

In her biased article “Dispute arises over insurance carriers” that appears in the March 6 issue of The Ravena News Herald Jessica Mosier (Columbia – Greene Media, Johnson Newspaper Group) reports on the deliberations by the New Baltimore Town Board on whether or not to jump ship from their present insurer to an insurer recommended by board members Lisa Benway and Chris Norris, NYMIR. Problem is: NYMIR has some pretty shady background when it comes to pals Susan O’Rorke, Lisa Benway and Chris Norris, and we probably should throw in their media mole Jessica Mosier, who seems to lose a lot in the translation.

Here’s what we managed to dig up:

In a recent e – mail communication from Lisa Benway to Shelly VanEtten (recently elected to the board with the Dellisanti team that ousted the tyrannical O’Rorke mob), Benway writes:

“I have looked over our current policy again, the Trident Renewal proposal and the NYMIR proposal…I know that people get nervous about changing policies because they are unsure of the service they will get from the new carrier. I can tell you that NYMIR has a very good reputation for claims service and overall service in general….To sum up, based on my years in the business and my interpretation of the policies, I would recommend to the board to take the NYMIR policy.” [emphasis provided]

In the Ravena News Herald article, Mosier reports Norris as having publicly recommended NYMIR “based on savings” not on coverage terms, and Benway agreed. Crazy! You say? No! Just crooked. Because O’Rorke, Benway and Norris have a very cozy—but is it too cozy—connection with NYMIR.

Junk-journalist Jessica Mosier of the Ravena News Herald, a division of Johnson Newspaper Group, and edited by Mark Vinciguerra, a former Albany Times Useless employee, don’t do their in-depth reporting, and manage to stay ignorant—or just don’t report—the dirty connections in which their pals are involved. So here are the facts:

Benway had the gall to admit that, “No two companies for commercial insurances are identical, that I can guarantee you!”

And, Guess what! We know why Benway would make such a statement! It all revolves around conflicts of interest and campaign contributions made to Susan O’Rorke and the New Baltimore Democratic Committee under Diane Lewis made by NYMIR – associated agents, agencies, and people. The donations were made to former New Baltimore supervisor Susan O’Rorke and to the New Baltimore Democratic Committee under chairperson Diane Lewis! Of course “no two companies are identical”! One is paying you and your party off and the other is providing legitimate insurance services! Never a truer statement made! You see, Susan O’Rorke works for Wright Risk Management (WRM), the parent company of NYMIR insurance, the insurer Benway and Norris are pushing the board to hire to insure New Baltimore!

Here’s the real dirt: our late and not–so–great New Baltimore town supervisor, Ms Susan O’Rorke, is an employee of Wright Risk Management (WRM), which is the management company for, NYMIR. (Makes you wonder if O’Rorke had not gotten the boot, would the three stooges, O’Rorke, Benway and Norris have still pushed the NYMIR recommendation? Now that would have been a story leading to a conviction! But it’s a question we should still ask Lisa Benway: Would she still so strongly have recommended NYMIR, and for the same reasons?)

But that, in itself, doesn’t build a very strong case for conflict of interest or charges of corruption. Or does it?

In the period of September 25, 2009 to November 4, 2013, WRM or NYMIR or high – ranking management of those companies or their founder, William Fishlinger made contributions to the O’Rorke Campaign or to the New Baltimore Democratic Committee in the amount of more than $2,500.00.

Contributions? Maybe, maybe not.

Contributions?
Maybe, maybe not.

An unconfirmed report is that O’Rorke has given presentations to municipalities pitching herself as a town supervisor and recommends NYMIR as a recommended insurer. She may still be doing that but we have no confirmation of her present activities.

Now we have a leftover pair from the O’Rorke administration, Lisa Benway and Chris Norris, who are recommending NYMIR, the insurance company run by O’Rorke’s employer WRM, as the preferred insurer for the town of New Baltimore, and in fact, vote against the proposal to have the policy renewed by Trident; they favor NYMIR.

Now, we are inches away from corruption and abuse of public office here in the case of Benway and Norris, who have been pushing to give NYMIR the contract for insuring New Baltimore, but both Benway and Norris have gone on the public record pushing for NYMIR and Benway even strongly recommends NYMIR in her communication to vanEtten.

Does anyone see the ghost of Susan O’Rorke at work here? Or even the New Baltimore Democratic Committee and Diane Lewis. Sure, they’re hungry for more campaign contributions from WRM, NYMIR, and their founders. Best way to get it? Send them some business. Then Susie O’R. can go out and sell more municipal insurance policies for NYMIR and make a ton of money for her friends at WRM, NYPIR’s parent company, and the founders, William Fishlinger and others at Congdon, Flaherty, O’Callahan, Reid, Donlan, Travis & Fishlinger.

Great plan, Lisa, Chris, Suzie. But you were caught again doing naughties! Maybe the Attorney General will be interested in this tidbit of incriminating research?

Thank you supervisor Dellisanti, boardmembers Ruso and vanEtten for your attention to detail and your diligence in asking the villains the right questions, keeping this town of New Baltimore and its residents out of the hands of crooks!

Stupidity or Entrapment?

As Often as We Try to Give the Coeymans Cuckoos the Benefit of Doubt; As Often as We Try to Think of Them as Competent, They Manage to Pull the Rug from Under Us!

Is this Stupidity or Entrapment?

Is this Stupidity or Entrapment?

For several weeks now I’ve been driving down Rt 144 entering the Hamlet of Coeymans and I’ve been seeing this sign while driving in the southbound lane. The sign reads “Trucks Entering” and, as you can see, is equipped with red flags, so you are on the alert for trucks. So while you’re looking for the trucks, you may miss the 30 mph sign that is completely hidden by the warning sign.

Is this Just Stupidity or Is It Entrapment?

But if you leave your car, walk to the other side of the road, this is what it looks like.

It's Stupidity!

It’s Stupidity!

How many times do you think the Coeymans Police cruise past this sign and can’t help but notice that  it’s completely blocking a 30 mph speed limit sign? The speed limit before the sign is 55 mph so if you don’t know the sign is there, you’re doing 55 mph in a 30 mph zone—25 miles over the “posted” speed limit. What do you think that will cost you? But the warning sign blocks the “posted” speed limit from view!

Now, I’ll ask again: In the several weeks that I’ve been noting the blocked speed limit sign, how many times do you think a Coeymans patrol car drives past it? At least once a shift? More? It would take only once for a cop with a pair of eyes and half a brain to notice the problem. But that’s giving the Coeymans police too much credit.

So, your coming down 144, see the “trucks entering” warning and you’re looking for trucks. Right? Then you see the second 30 mph speed limit sign farther down the road BUT TOO LATE!

Too Late! DoDo Cop is Hiding and Has Already Clocked You! You're Cooked!

Too Late! DoDo Cop is Hiding and Has Already Clocked You! You’re Cooked!

So, I have to ask you readers, residents, visitors, victims: Is this simple stupidity or is it calculated entrapment?

Any reasonably thinking person would expect law enforcement to ensure that posted permanent speed limit signs are not obscured by temporary warning signs. In fact, if the “trucks entering” signs belong to a private company, the fact that they are so placed that they obscure a lawfully posted speed limit would subject the owner of the sign to a violation citation, you’d think. But maybe Coeymans just doesn’t care!

The sign is there, you should have seen it. It doesn’t matter if there’s another sign blocking it and you’re looking for the killer trucks that are entering. But too late, you’re cooked.

Yeah, Sucka! You Been Had!

Yeah, Sucka! You Been Had!

The Coeymans Police have again disappointed us with their conspicuous stupidity and their indifference to the safety of residents, citizens and visitors. Common sense would demand that if a Coeymans cop sees that the speed limit sign is blocked that he take steps to correct the situation for everyone’s safety. The “trucks entering” sign would be just as effective behind the speed limit sign. But that would require a brain, wouldn’t it?

We think that this might be an instance of entrapment. They don’t expose the speed limit, you’re supposed to have x-ray vision, you’re doing 25 mph over the speed limit, DoDo cop’s hiding just beyond the second 30 mph speed limit sign, zapps you and you get to plead sucker before jingle-judge George Dardiani or Phil Crandall. They downgrade the offense, you pay a steep fine but count yourself lucky, and everybody’s happy! NOT!

We’d like to ask someone to FOIL the speeding tickets issued by the Coeymans Police Department over the past month, but if you do, make certain you specify that you want the location where the ticket was issued and the speed. You don’t need names or personal details, just the location and the speed. We’ll do the rest.

New Baltimore Democrat Country Club: The Sequel.

 Our Slogan Has Always Been: The Truth Comes Out No Matter What.

gutter politics

New Baltimore: Why so nasty, Dems?

A frequent criticism of the Republicans overall is that they come across as wimpy when compare to the in-your-face aggression of the Dems. That’s a gross mistaken impression because Republicans, at least real Republicans, aren’t wimpy at all, dear readers. Republicans are decent, have values, and respect one another and you, too! They’re not called the Right for nothing!

A frequent cry among most Republicans and Conservatives in recent years has been how the Dems run really nasty campaigns. Sure, the Dems are appealing to what the Democrat strategists perceive as the unwashed masses, they tend to reinforce the idea that if you’re poor, unemployed, not white, not college material then you’re a victimhelpless, and…stupid..  (and on closer examination, that very presumption makes the Dems even more corrupt and pandering). Perhaps the Dems perceive themselves as having to lower themselves and their campaign behaviors to the beastial level simply to ensure that they get all the marginalized votes. They presume voters to be victims, not dignified persons. Republicans, in contrast, have strong values and moral appeal, and in the long haul, represent that morality in the way they conduct themselves locally and nationally.

Now, let’s be clear: I’m talking about the “official” party approach to the campaigning, and I’m not including what privately run supporters might do on syndicated radio or other media, or in their paid political announcements. Most of those so-called supporters are supporting only one thing: their own agendas and don’t represent the reall Tradition.

In one of my recent articles I lambasted the New Baltimore country club that meets in the New Baltimore town hall. I noted in that article how the New Baltimore supervisor, Susan K. O’Rorke, and her minions, the majority of the New Baltimore town board are not what they appear to be and are all in bed together. (see my article, “New Baltimore: Coeymans’ Evil Twin…Part II” )

What I didn’t include in that article was the observation that in this central New York state region, the observations I made of the hypocrisy and nastiness of the Democrats in the area, including candidates, elected officials, and their supporters, generally fit the bill of hypocrisy and nastiness. You’d almost think it was a prerequisite to register Democrat.

(In fact, a recent visitor from outside of the area, noted how no one seems to smile…she was referring to a group of glaring local Dems!)

Now, I’m talking about how two major political parties present themselves, not how government works, and that’s an important distinction to be made. In all honesty and as a purely non-political observation, I’d like to make the following practical comparisons before I move on to a real-life example:

  • Republicans are the values party; they lead the country in a direction of religious values and faith based initiatives. They advance positions of morality and ethics; they oppose, for example, certain forms of abortion, desecration of the sacrament of marriage, family values.
  • Republicans, no matter how you feel about politics, support community and responsibility. Republicans recognize that our institutions are what make us what we are (for better or for worse, as well see further on in this article).
  • Democrats on the other hand are indifferent to our established institutions and try at every turn to make quick changes (Obama’s chant was “Change”).
  • Democrats are indifferent even hostile to reglion and faith, they advance “secular humanism”, they want to make everyone equal despite the fact that nature makes us different, they want to drive a wedge between religion and state (no Bible, no prayer, no God in public places, offices, events), they are the party of the individual as opposed to community.

    Why is itThe Republican Slogan is Faith and Family ValuesAnd the Dem Slogan is: Change?

    Why is it
    The Republican Slogan is
    Faith and Family Values

    And the Dem Slogan is: Change?
    (What is it that the Dems want to change in Faith and Family? Atheism and abortion, perhaps?)

Again, I do want to emphasize that these are my personal observations and you are free to check the facts for yourselves. You might want to go to a Democrat club event and then visit a Republican club event; make a comparison of how you were welcomed, treated, who spoke to you, etc. What they talk about.

Now if you look around your community, with the rare exception, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a “real” Republican in any of the public offices or key positions. Most of the so-called Republicans are RINOs (Republicans in name only) and have gotten into office by misleading the voters and prostituting themselves to get Democrat support. More on this later.

Again, if you look around your community, you’ll be able to confirm what I’ve been writing for some time now: Our communities are made up of three basic groups:

  • Those in power,
  • Those who think they have no power (and they’re wrong), and
  • Those who observe the dynamics between the two.

Now those in power include their minions and those people who feel they need to identify with the alphas to ensure that they don’t end on their shite lists (see what I have to say about the Stockholm syndrome and victims in my article “Just a Friendly Reminder“). The tag-alongs get a false sense of security if they stay close to the gangleaders. Those who think they have no power and so remain powerless are by far the majority. It’s that majority who the third group, the observers and the prophets, call out to to mobilize.

Where's honesty, integrity...?

Where’s honesty, integrity…?

In this immediate area, the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk district, the town of Coeymans and the town New Baltimore we have a Democrat machine operating. It has a long history in Albany County, a shorter one in Greene County. If you don’t think there’s a Democrat machine running over you, just check out the party affiliations in the majority of public offices and if they’re not Democrat, take a closer look at how they vote or whom they support and you’re likely to find a Democrat in disguise, like a RINO. And what’s more, ask yourself something about how they behave. More than likely you’ll have to admit that even my amateurish comparisons hit pretty darned close to the mark. Don’t they?

So, dear readers, we come to the main point of this article, a real-life example of what I’m talking about:

A reader recently sent me a letter from a group in New Baltimore endorsing the local Democrats and several Republicans (the RINOs named in my last article) for public office. At first blush you’d probably say: “Gee, that’s really nice. It’s great to see people crossing political lines and actually endorsing people who can do the job, regardless of their party affiliations!” Well, you’d be too hasty with that conclusion. And you’d be dead wrong, too!

The letter is dated November 3, 2011, and is addressed to “Fellow Democrat.” New Baltimore residents Robert “Bob” Knighten, Judi Bensenfelder, and Ken Rebusmen signed the letter which starts off telling the voter, the Democrat voter, that it’s “an important and unusual year for our local government in the Town of New Baltimore”… but it never gets to tell us Why? it’s important much less unusual, because it describes business-as-usual!

But what it does tell us is that three RINOs are running as pseudo-Republicans, Chris Norris, Lisa Benway, and Denis Jordan, and the Democrat writers are urging New Baltimore voters to vote for them!

kbr_troika_monkeys

Writing about Chris Norris, Knighten, Bensenfelder, and Rebusmen get all warm and fuzzy, it’s a Democrat lovefest in honor of their very own pet RINOS, Norris, Benway, and Jordan. We get a taste for their aggression only a sentence on when they refer to the “Byas/Meredith/Finke troika.” A bit of background on this very simple but loaded phrase. A troika is a sled or wagon drawn by three horses but is a symbol of Russia, so the image is that Byas, Meredith and Finke are as unamerican as Soviet Russia, where during the Stalin era, a commission of three judges (a “troika“) would pass judgment. Mr Byas was not re-elected but Meredith and Finke were. But the point is, the Knighten-Bensenfelder-Rebusman troika was a pot  calling the kettle black (a Democrat speciality, it seems). As the election turned out, Meredith and Finke, both Republicans in “good standing” were re-elected. Too bad for the Knighten-Bensenfelder-Rebusman troika. But don’t we refer to the Dems as the left? Aren’t leftists communists and socialists by nature, definition and politics? Go figure!

pot-calling-the-kettle-black

Moving on, that same letter then describes Lisa Benway, a RINO, as “a voice of reason and support for Supervisor O’Rorke on many occasions.” Out of one side of their mouths these citizen representatives of the Democrat party trash three residents in good standing, all Republicans, but now they have one, a RINO, a democrat running as a republican, who admittedly is “a voice of…support for Supervisor O’Rorke on many occasions.” Thank you, Ms Lisa Benway!

Facts are...

Facts are…

The writers then describe both Chris Norris and Lisa Benway, Republicans, remember, as having “earned them the enmity of the old line conservative Republicans who control the Republican committee purse strings,” and that they were not supported by the town Republican committee. Wonder why?  Why spend money on people who are working for the other side, not that there should be an “other side”?  But who cares, really. Why trash the town Republicans?  And besides, it’s obvious that they don’t have the backing of their own local party. So take them, Dems, they’re yours already, aren’t they? What point is that, you ask? You’ve already got Norris and Benway in your pockets; doesn’t that prove your point…and ours?

The point that Norris and Benway are hypocrites and deceptive, that they are RINOs, that they are tools of the local Democrat machine. They’re loved by the Democrats but they still run under the Republican name. Sneaky, eh?

When we get to the hype and spin about keeping New Baltimore Highway Superintendent Denis Jordan in his job, we really have to try not to guffaw. The Knighten-Bensenfelder-Rebusman troika writes: “Under his leadership town highway department staff provide excellent, cost effective service…[he] has worked diligently with his staff and Supervisor O’Rorke and Deputy Supervisor Norris to control costs.” Drive along Hamlet roads and you’ll see how O’Rorke, Norris, and Jordan are practicing cost-effective management; if you fall into one of those potholes you’ll know. And how many times a year do you have to fill the same hole? How much is that costing? Cost-effective management? For whom?  They’re controlling costs all right…sending us all to bankruptcy!
potholeCost-Effective Highway Management
à la New Baltimore, New York
Don’t Fill the Potholes!
 
You can read the entire letter at Knighten-Bensenfelder-Rebusman troika.

So, dear readers, what was merely an amateurish observation by a non-political community observer was actually proved to be accurate, factual, and true by the New Baltimore Democrats themselves. Thank you Bob Knighten, Judi Bensenfelder, and Ken Rebusman. You and Joan Ross and Bob Ross with John Luckacovic make our job so much easier, indeed!

My recommendation to you, Knighten, Bensenfelder, Rebusman would be to thorougly review anything you write and send out in future. With a little practice you might even come up with a pursuasive communication that pulls the community together instead of driving wedges, something you appear to be very good at. I’d also recommend that you choose your examples with more care; turncoats, hypocrites and the like don’t do very much for your own credibility.

New Baltimore: Coeymans’ Evil Twin…Part II

Each of Us, With Very Few Exceptions, Likes Integrity, Especially in our Elected and Public Officials. We Put Great Trust in them, and The Power and Authority that they Exercise on Our Behalf Should be Exclusively for the Good. But What Should We Think When they Are One Thing on the Surface and Another under the Skin?

When Discussing New Baltimore Candidates and Elected Officers, I have to Ask Myself:What Is It, Really?

When Discussing New Baltimore Candidates and Elected Officers, I have to Ask Myself:
What Is It, Really?

Can We Really Trust People Who Are “In Name Only”?

We’ve done a lot for the RCS community in bringing out the truth about the village of Ravena and the crooks in Village Hall, and we’ve set the town of Coeymans’ teeth on edge with the exposure of the corruption and hypocrisy that’s going on in the Doublewide on renegades’ Russel Avenue.

Just recently we’ve taken a shot from the hip at Coeymans’ evil twin down the road, New Baltimore. Exposed some nerves with the publication of that wake-up call and now the little club on Route 51 is a bit shaken.

But now we take a look at the real phoneys, the Democrats who are Democrats in Name Only a.k.a. DINOs, like Susan O’Rourke, and the Republicans who are Republicans in Name Only a.k.a. RINOs. It’s pitiful, but here’s the real story.

But who are those masqueraders who meet to get a cheap power rush at the expense of New Baltimore taxpayers? We’ve received some personal impressions from a local correspondent who knows the New Baltimafia from the inside out, it seems. Here are some of those impressions:

The Supervisor from Hell

New Baltimore Town Supervisor:Control! Control! CONTROL!

New Baltimore Town Supervisor O’Rourke:
Control! Control! CONTROL!

Supervisor Susan K. O’Rorke – She claims to be a Democrat and runs as a Democrat- but she’s actually a DINO – Susan O’Rorke is not actually registered as a Democrat, she is “NOP,” which is the election board designation for someone with no party registration.  Of course, she is nominated by the New Baltimore Democrat machine, and she gives money to the Dems (sorta buys her nomination), etc, but she doesn’t have the guts or the commitment to register as one of them, as a Democrat.

New Baltimore Town Board members

They're Republicans in Name Only![They're Owned by Dems]

They’re Republicans in Name Only!
[They’re Owned by Dems]

Christopher Norris – Runs as a Republican (but in fact is just a RINO), O’Rorke controls him totally, voted contrary to her on one single resolution only in more than 3 years. Shame on you, Christopher!

Lisa Benway– Runs as a Republican (another RINO) Only on the board for 15 months, has yet to vote contrary to Susan O’Rourke. Shame on you, Lisa!

Michael T. Meridith – Runs as a Republican.  Likes to get along with everybody, nice person actually, but will get his back up once in a while. Is that enough, though, to represent the people who put him in office? And does he have the cojones to be a real Republican, and represent real Republican values and morality? To oppose Susan O’Rourke’s peverse agenda of Democrat amorality and secularism? Well, Mike, do you?

Barbara Finke – Runs as a Republican.  The only person who challenges Susan O’Rourke, however is usually voted down by O’Rorke, Norris and Benway.  Has voted NO! on numerous proposals that Susan O’Rourke puts up, but a resolution that is 4-1 or 3-2 passes anyway. But BRAVO! anyway, Barb. Thanks for the gutsyness and the fortitude!

This is what happensWhen a real Republican meets a RINO!

This is what happens
When a real Republican
meets a RINO!

Other Officers

Janet Brooks – Town Clerk- Democrat. A chameleon, really. Changes colors with the temperature and mood. And she stays afloat. Don’t let the smile mislead you…there are teeth in there.

Denis JordanHighway Superintendent, supposed to be Republican but  is totally 110%  in Susan O’Rourke’s  pocket.  In return he hands her the votes of the highway department employees and their spouses. The usual Democrat line of promises: he tells them that Susan O’Rourke will take care of them via raises and benefits if they support her.  Actually, he’s throwing your taxpayer money away in so many ways, O’Rourke’s just one of them. Shame on you, Denis!

Diane Jordan Recently appointed Town Tax Collector, wouldn’t be there if she weren’t Denis Jordan’s wife and a very special butt-kisser to Susan O’Rourke. She’s also supported in more ways than one by O’Rourke; in fact O’Rourke hand-picked Jordan and nominated her to be appointed when the previous Tax Collector stepped down for health reasons.  Like her husband Denis, Diane is a “registered” Republican but is owned by the Democrats. O’Rourke owns her and her husband. No shame, Diane!

Town “Justices”

[Editor’s Note: We really must apologize for using the word “Justice” when referring to these guys but that’s the official title. Has nothing to do with their performance or their ethics, unfortunately.]

New BaltimoreTown Justice at Work

New Baltimore
Town Justice at Work

Joseph A. Farrell Jr. – All that we’ve ever said or written about the ignorance and ineptitude of the New York State system of town and village courts is packaged in Joseph A. Farrell, Jr. Totally vanilla, nothing about the man is dignified, he’s a puppet of the worst kind, carved out of wormy wood. All he’s really good for is to collect speeding tickets, which he has been doing for quite a while now. An alleged adulterer who has the balls to show up in the local church with his fluff only during campaign periods to pander for re-election. Now his Conchita is married to “el juéz” and it’s classic melodrama on Peyton Place, New Baltimore. Disgusting pile of fetid flesh; Walking hypocrisy! And a Democrat all the way! Can it get any better than this?

Is it really written in the New York State Code of Judicial Conduct and the Judicial Law that our judges and justices are held to a higher standard than the citizen at large? If that is so and if the judges are such sleezebags, what can we expect from the New Baltimore citizen at large? I certainly hope they have their shots because they could be deadly!

Lee Davis – Davis is a registered Working Families Party member, which is a more radical branch of the Democrat party. Davis has only just been elected, rather “appointed” since we’re talking about New Baltimore now, to be a town justice. All we can honestly expect from Davis is that he’s going to march in lock-step with the rest of the club members and won’t buck his riders.

So, there you have an insider’s evaluation of the people who run the show in New Baltimore. There’s more coming up but we are working on checking the facts. It’s much dirtier than it appears at the surface, we regret to say.


Finally, we’d like to extend our special thanks to Joan Ross and Bob Ross of New Baltimore for their efforts in keeping everyone informed and for distributing this blog to the community. Thanks to you both for your behind-the-scenes involvement. It’s town residents like you who make all of this possible. (One of your many admirers threw you in!)

OUTRAGEOUS: Short Reports

Here are a Couple of Short Reports to Show You Just How Outrageously Idiotic Some of Our Local Elected Officials Really Are.

WHY?  Because we let them!

When you finish reading this, insert your face here!

When you finish reading this, insert your face here!

Outrageous!

RCS School Board Members Latter, Engel Demand Vote without Reading the Background Material! Shame on you!

That RCS Central School District board of education members James Latter, Howard “Bray” Engel, Alice Whalen, Edward “Teddy” Revelle insisted at the March 5, 2013, board of education meeting that members vote to proceed with a grant application without reading the details about the grant or its application process. Their logic: “Well we’re just applying, we’re not accepting anything. We may not even get it so what’s the problem?”

Well, the problem is this, as Mr Michael Robbins and Mr John Vadney clearly stated at the meeting: “We cannot in good conscience vote on something we have not yet read. That would be a betrayal of the public trust in us. We need to read these things before we vote on them.”

(The RCS district offices provided the board members with the write-up on the grant the morning of the meeting. It was more than 40 pages long!)

It’s outrageous that the teachers clique (Whalen, Engel, Latter, Revelle) would insist that the board vote on an item before they had the opportunity to read what they’re voting on!

More Outrageous!

RCS School Board Members Latter, Engel, Revelle Don’t Know the Procedure! Clerk embarasses teachers clique. Board President Vadney 100% correct!

ATTITUDEWhalen, Engel, Latter, Revelle

ATTITUDE
Whalen, Engel, Latter, Revelle

It’s outrageous that RCS Central School District board of education members, speaking specifically of the teachers clique now, are so ignorant that they don’t know the procedural terms that have been in place for years. James Latter and Howard “Bray” Engel disputed the term “to table a motion” in public session, insisting that board president Mr John Vadney was using a wrong procedural term. Well, they were properly embarrassed when the district clerk clarified the matter by reading out the definitions of the terms “to table a motion” and to “postpone a motion”.

Turns out Mr Vadney was completely correct. It was the teachers who were proved to be dumbasses!

The lesson for today, Mr James Latter and Mr Howard Engel is: Keep your fat cakeholes shut until you know what your talking about! And stop embarrassing this school district with your ignorance!

Even More Outrageous, Still!

Mayor John Bruno, Village of Ravena Raise RCS Communiity Library Rent by $600, Shyster Greg Teresi Sends Eviction Letter! Shame on you!

Ravena Village Hall Brain Function

Ravena Village Hall Brain Function

The News Herald Newspaper, the “official newspaper” of the village of Ravena, in a front-page story in the March 7 issue (vol 139, No. 3), reports:

Library signs a lease at 95 Main Street.”

The RCS Community library has signed a lease to move into the location at 95 Main Street, Ravena. But they can’t move in because the owner, Don Persico, hasn’t finished the renovations, and couldn’t get a loan to do the work until the Library signed a lease. But Guess what? Those villains in the Ravena village offices, hot to get their fitness center attracting hotties, have been hard at work hatching new conspiracies to make the library’s life more miserable. For starters, they’ve raised the library’s rent by a whopping $600! If that weren’t bad enough, they’ve had Coeymanazi shyster lawyer Greg Teresi send the Library an eviction notice. Of course, minghia mayor John Bruno was tight-lipped about the sleazy doings.

Duh! Let me think about that!

Duh! Let me think about that!

It’s kinda bizarre to think that the village of Ravena is so cut-throat, even cannibalistic. You see Josephine “Josie” Bruno is trustee of the RCS Community library and related to mayor John Bruno. Another member of the Ravena incest club is Nancy Biscone-Warner, wife of the disreputable coeymans town justice Harold “Hal” Warner. Nancy Biscone-Warner is also a village of Ravena trustee. So topping off the incestuous network and conflicts of interest, she’s also deeply involved with the unlawful Ravena fitness center that is to occupy the library space. Even more bizarre is that Don Persico, the guy who has to get a loan to complete the renovations for the library’s new location but needed a signed lease to get the loan, is cousin to village of Ravena trustee Rocco Persico! Get the spellings right now: Bruno, Biscone, Bruno, Teresi (how’d Warner get in there, anyway?). Trustee! Hell! I wouldn’t trust any of these characters as far as I could throw them! But you can see the incredibly idiotic mess they’ve created in Ravena, can’t you? And you know who’s paying for it, don’t you? YOU ARE! DUMMIES!

But isn’t it really OUTRAGEOUS, that the RCS Community Library is and has been an important community institution and its budget is funded by you, the taxpayers. In fact, when you vote for the school budget, you are also voting for the library budget at the same time. So why is it that the village of Ravena, mayor Bruno and Nancy Biscone-Warner are literally stealing your tax money by raising the library’s rent another $600? What’s the sense? Who is Bruno, Biscone-Warner and the other jackasses on the Ravena village council punishing? And for what? The Ravena fitness center, the brain-fart of a handful of crooks? What are you waiting for, people? Throw them all out on the street, now!

We’d like to inform the entire RCS community, a community that spans two counties, Albany and Greene, that this corruption and misuse of public office, this abuse of a public institution, this misuse of public treasury must and should be brought to the attentions of both District Attorneys in Albany and Greene Counties, to the public corruption investigators at the Albany Field Office of the FBI, and to the New York State Attorney General. If citizens, residents, taxpayers do not cry out for justice, justice will never come to your aid!

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.

a.k.a. Bobo Cop

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.

Thomas E. "Tom" DolanChampion of MidHudson Cablevision Deals

Thomas E. “Tom” Dolan
Champion of MidHudson Cablevision Deals

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!

Claim your prize. It’s yours!

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

Matthew J. "Matt-the-Mutt" MillerNYSUT Union Rep at RCS

Matthew J. Miller
“Matt-the-Mutt”

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.
