Community is Fed Up with Constant Rehashing of Krzykowski Story

Coeymans Town Board Member Peter Masti Comments “Privately” in Ravena News Herald

fed up pissed off express

The abuse of freedom of expression has reached a high point in this district when a Coeymans town board member, Mr Peter E. Masti, an elected official in this town, has to come out publicly and remind this community that the voters, when they speak through their votes, speak in one voice.

Jackass Journalism

Jackass Journalism
News Herald Trademark

In the Ravena News Herald (January 17, 2013, page 3) writer Melanie Lekocevic rehashes the already stale news of Mr Rodney Krzykowski and his exercise of his Constitutional rights. The story, already almost a year since the Albany Times Union picked up on it through the local Coeymanazis, is ancient history–ironically it appeared alongside the column, “News from the Past“. But apparently the News Herald found it newsworthy and printed it. Well, we all know that the Ravena News Herald, like the Albany Times Union specializes in Jackass Journalism, but we did expect that the News Herald would be a bit more sensitive and less indifferent to the community it allegedly serves!

Well, in that same rag, the Ravena News Herald (January 24, 2013, page 10), Coeymans town board member Peter E. Masti, comes out in a letter to the editor saying, “It is sad to see the matter being brought up again.” Yes, Mr Masti, it is “sad.”

Mr Masti correctly observes that the rehashing over and over again of this issue “gives the town of Coeymans another black eye.” And notes further that “[t]he fact of the matter had to have been known…before he was elected, if anyone sought to find out.” Again, Mr Masti, you are right on target.

Mr Masti raises the point that this has gone far beyone “a personal feud,” and although Matt Miller is taking advantage of his right, Mr Masti questions whether it is “helping out the school and the town?” Mr Masti writes that it is not and is adversely affecting this community and adds: “All the publicity only hurts a lot of innocent people.

Mr Masti, himself and elected official on the town board of Coeymans, he correctly observes that “with with every election good or bad results are due to the people who vote or fail to vote…that is how America works.”

We agree 101% with Mr Masti’s reasoning and wisdom. We, too, feel that Mr Matthew J. Miller’s ill-thought scheme to pursue his personal agenda and ignite a personal feud brought ridicule and scandal to this community. Miller’s feud and personal vendetta’s were open and undisguised; they couldn’t possibly be mistaken for community spirited action.

Come Up for Air, Matt

Come Up for Air, Matt

We would go further to say that far from Mr Masti’s words of wisdom, Matthew Miller’s example is very poor indeed and reflects only his lack of character and his ulterior motives of self-enrichment, egomania, and his clear loyalty to New York State Teachers United, his union, and his disregard, insensitivity and indifference to what matters in this community. Matthew Miller’s message to this community is clear: Miller, Tavia Rauch, and the so-called “Unidentified Resident” a.k.a. “Cowardly Rat Turd”, don’t give a rat’s butt about the voice of the community, the democratic process, the voters. Miller’s conduct is purely selfish and motivated by a damaged ego and loss of an ill-gotten paid position that was eliminated in the community’s best interests.

Matthew Miller, although he does claim to be an atheist, as a biology teacher, even an atheistic one, can and should be aware that community, whether human or otherwise, means interrelatedness. As Martin Luther King, Jr. famously and prophetically argued, “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.”  Those are wise words that we should all heed and heed well!

Mr Krzykowski was elected by the RCS district and community, he was not appointed by Matthew Miller. Mr Krzykowski should be allowed to complete his term of office and to do the work he was elected to do without these stupid distractions. If and when Mr Krzykowski decides to run again in this outrageously ungrateful district, the voters will decide, not Matthew Miller, NYSUT’s local lackey.

“One Nation Under God”…Maybe not.

When students noticed that a teacher was not Saying the Pledge Correctly–He Omits “Under God” from the “One Nation Under God”–

The Teacher Justifies His Editing By Telling the Students He’s “An Atheist!”

And it's not negotiable in schools!

When offered an inch human beings tend to go for the whole 12 inches, and then want the stick you measured it with. Call it human nature but people need something bigger than themselves to keep them in line: rules, laws, parents, faith…God maybe?

One of the big problems that hit the world in the late 20th century was the great leveling of society and normalization of literally everything. No more differences, no more rules, no more nothing. Some called it freedom, others diversity, others still, chaos. We human beings need something higher than ourselves to guide us; when we tear down the gods, we have nothing but ourselves–and that’s trouble.

Just like the ancient Greeks and Romans. As long as the gods were mysterious, inexplicable, they were held in awe; once they started looking and acting like us they become comic strip characters. (The Jews did well by keeping Yahweh divine; thanks to them we got Chrisianity and Islam, and the Jews are still here with very alive morals and community, it’s why they stick together: they share.) Once the churches made everybody members of a “common priesthood”–all hell broke loose, literally. Equality is unnatural; necessity is natural.

But back to the subject of this post: a nation under what? God!

It’s been said that the American nation is a Christian nation (apologies to the Jews and Muslims and other faiths!)–only because the Christians were a majority and didn’t want to admit the Jews were really running things, albeit from the back room, a sort of Wizard of Oz scenario. Not to confess a belief in God or a god was unthinkable, monstrous! To be an atheist was to be an outcast, an outlier, even….communist (ask kids nowadays what that is. Thanks teachers!) Oh! How things have changed

We now have teachers in our schools, one in particular has come to our attention, let’s call him Matt Miller, who refuse to recite the pledge of allegiance words, “one nation under God,” and when asked Why? by students answers: “I’m an atheist.”

Scandalous! Why not put a white supremecist in the classroom teaching American history? Why not have a Southern Baptist teaching biology? What the hell is an atheist doing in the classroom with your kids? What bloody right does that atheist have to flaunt his personal defects in front of impressionable youth? I compare his statement to indecent exposure of his genitals but symbolically.

Look, once a person has reached a certain age and has gained life experience, that person can pretty much believe what he or she wants. Generally, school-age kids, even those in highschool, have not yet reached that phase in the life cycle. Sometimes, however, it’s to everyone’s benefit if it’s just kept to one’s self. But when one is placed in a highly privileged position, in a position in which the impressionable young are highly sensitive to what they see and hear, one loses some of one’s privileges of opinion, dissent, freedom of speech. The position of the teacher is precisely one such privileged position. Once a teacher forgets he has boundaries…he’s gotta go!

Here you are, parents, teaching your children good Christian or Jewish or Muslim or Buddhist, etc. morals and urging them to bible study, worship, to be good Jews, Christians, and Muslims, etc. whatever, to be God-fearing and good, and then you’re sidelined by some screwball at school influencing them, confusing them. Even if you leave spirituality and faith questions up to your kid to freely choose, what right does another adult have to unfairly influence that kid, your kid?

What are you going to do about it? Why not ask Mr Matt Miller, teacher and president of the RCS CSD teachers association,about his now-known-to-have-been published–by himself!–his moral meter or lack of it. How can someone who has no higher authority other than the crippled authority of humankind be an example or be trusted to make moral and ethical decisions? How does Mr Miller’s “atheism” affect his judgment, his interpretation of the world, his teaching? If he can’t keep his oddball beliefs to himself and out of earshot of students at the school, how can you trust  him? My personal answer would be: “You cannot trust someone with such lack of discretion.” It’s just plain scandalous!

Read another report brought home by RCS students to parents about Miller’s conversation with Vish, click Loose Lips.

It’s time now to put the Superintendent and the Board of Education on the spot: What are you going to do about this? What will you say when the public asks what you know about the teachers hired to teach in the district? It’s not that the questions might be asked…the question IS being asked.

This one you watch for.

This one admits it publicly.

The last elections booted the immoral clique, the adulterers, the phonies off of the board of education. They were all publicly supported by Matt Miller and his special-interest group, the RCS teachers association.

That was a step forward for the district. Now it’s time to look in the closets at the schools and get the skeletons out in the public’s view. Here’s a place to start: Ask Mr Miller about his public statements regarding the pledge of allegiance!

If you enjoy this blog, please send a link to it to your friends and relatives, but especially to your elected officials and tell them you want answers. NOW!
