More Dysinformation Misinformation by the Ignorant Pundits


The “Just Curious” Trivia Question:
Who can identify the stupid blond female Coeymans cop who was sitting in a Coeymans patrol car parked on the wrong side of the street (at the end of Russell Ave.), no lights on, car’s nose stuck out in oncoming traffic on Main Street, forcing Main St. traffic across the double line into the oncoming lane to get by her. She was slurping s.t. from a paper cup.
Spotting Time: Saturday, April 20 at 10:07 a.m.
That must be Coeymans’ idea of public safety, right?

“Fitness Club Floozie” Cathy Deluca, “Dirty-Hands” Jerry Deluca Should Keep Their Cakeholes Shut if They Don’t Know What They’re Talking About!

Caution! They may talk but they're solid wood, nothing in there but dead wood!

Caution! They may talk but they’re solid wood, nothing in there but dead wood!

That’s the impression we get when we hear Cathy Deluca or Jerry Deluca or any of the teachers clique speaking: It’s like watching a ventriloquist’s dummy talking. We know it’s a dummy and we know someone else is doing the talking but we still watch the dummy and listen to what it has to say. Go figure!

Who's doing the talking?

Who’s doing the talking?

At the April 16, RCS board of education meeting, “Dirty-Hands” Jerry Deluca waddled to the speakers podium to “Give his voice” to the discussion.  Here’s what he had to say:

Deluca: “If we cut the budget too much this year, we will pay for it next year by cutting programs or raising taxes…You cannot continue to cut this district to the bone…Just because we have some extra money doesn’t mean we have to just cut the tax rate.”

Now, I want you to note that Jerry Deluca refers to the “tax rate” in his statement.

Cathy Deluca, of course, has to get her two cents into the discussion and in a public statement writes:

Cathy DeLuca: “After watching the video of the BOE meeting it appears that some people are confusing the tax Levy with the tax Rate. Understandable, it can be quite confusing. Please understand that the tax Levy is NOT the same as the tax Rate…it appears that with a tax levy between 2% to 3% we would have a tax RATE of -5% to -8%, YES that means a Decrease in your tax bill. The key word is tax “RATE” not levy.”

Can you two Delucas get it straight for just once in your lives? It seems that the local loudmouths, Cathy and Jerry Deluca, don’t know what they’re talking about and, although they’re cohabitating, they don’t seem to communicate much.

[Editor’s Note: While the two Delucas, Cathy and Jerry, give a lot of advice about taxes etc. neither of the pair has any qualification or training to give such advice. Neither has training in accounting, finance, or law. Neither of the Delucas has been licensed or certified by any agency to qualify them to give such advice or information.]

What Cathy doesn’t mention is that her own partner, Jerry Deluca, is actually the one person, not “some people” Cathy, Your husband, Jerry Deluca, is the one who is “confusing the tax levy with the tax rate”! Bring it where it belongs, Cathy, right at home, your husband doesn’t know what he’s talking about. But that’s nothing new, is it?

house moneyHere’s another point you residents need to keep in mind regarding the so called speakers at the April 16, 2013, RCS board of education meeting:  The speakers were almost exclusively teachers and all stand to profit from a higher levy (more than 2%).  By profit, I mean receive personal and professional enrichment; I mean they personally profit from more programs and fewer cuts! (It’s highly unlikely that RCS students would notice any change at all with a lower levy!) Here’s what they had to say (not in order of speaking):

whalen

Alice Whalen: Retired Teacher and Board Member Wants More!
I’m completely against the 2%
Why is she talking to a water bottle?

The first speaker: Sarah Engel is a teacher and the wife of sitting board member Howard “Bray” Engel (but she seems to be silent on both points). She wants a higher than 2% levy. Why? As a teacher and wife of a teacher, she stands to profit.

Maureen Perrot, identifying herself as a “faculty member,” “taxpayer,” and “parent”–in other words, someone who stands to profit from a higher levy–spoke in favor of a higher levy (more than 2%).

Elizabeth A. Varney, another public school employee (but didn’t mention this fact) and a member of the New York State Teachers Retirement System (NYSTRS), got to plug for the higher levy.

The second speaker: A lovely little 5th grader, Maddie McTigue, was apparently put up on exhibit to sell middle school programs and to put in a good word for a favorite teacher and her program. I think it’s scandalous to use a child to parrot the agenda of the adults! It’s downright abusive! That’s downright devious, putting a child up to pitch your agenda! Shame on you! Parents and teachers!

The third speaker was our local double-dipper, bully-monger, NYSUT union rep, Matthew J. “Matt the Mutt” Miller. It’s only natural that he run at the mouth in favor of a higher levy because it will benefit his constituency, the teachers, and their union, the New York State United Teachers a.k.a. NYSUT. But he had the gall to act like a Joe Average taxpayer and flaunted his own tax returns (When was he last audited, I wonder?) as “proof” of something (We’re still not sure what it was to prove. Maybe his stupidity and insincerity?). According to Miller, 2% is “imprudent” and he wants a levy between 3-3.5%. But please note, readers, anything over 2% can cause complications in the number of votes required to pass such a budget.

Did you know that NYSUT filed a law suit to prevent the tax cap? According to NYSUT president Richard “Dick” Iannuzzi:

“… whether children attend a low-wealth or a high-wealth school district, they should be able to receive a quality education and local voters should have the opportunity to decide how much money their district spends on education.”

“We believe very strongly in the principle that every student, no matter where they live or go to school, should have the opportunity to receive a quality public education,” Iannuzzi said in a statement. “In challenging the constitutionality of the tax cap, we are fighting for that principle, just as we are fighting for the democratic principles of ‘one person, one vote’ and for the right of citizens, through local control of their schools, to determine for themselves how much they want to spend on their own community’s schools.”

What You See versus What You Get

What You See versus What You Get

That’s a pile of teachers union bullshit!  Pretty words hiding an ugly message. Like powder and paint hiding someting you don’t want to see. We think this means that the teachers union, NYSUT, wants no cap and wants to go hog-wild on the property owner with taxation. What it’s saying is that if you own property, you need to foot the bill for your local social services recipien’ts’ children, even if you have no children. Now is that fair? but that’s the teachers union and Matt Miller talking about your property and your money.

According to our analysis (Yes. It’s oversimplified): Those who want a levy of more than 2% can benefit in two ways, at least:

  • If the higher levy demanded by the teachers and the Delucas is approved by the board and the voters accept the budget, the teachers and the teachers union benefit by having more taxpayer (property owner) money to spend.
  • If the higher levy is approved by the board (the deadline for the budget  is April 26, 2013) and is sent to the public for the vote and fails, the Coeymanazis will blame the present board for putting out a budget that is too high, and the district will have to go to the contingency budget. Not a pleasant thought and that could mean more negative publicity for the community and the district.

[Editor’s Note: For those of you who want more information and greater detail, please visit the links below.]

Either way, the community and the district suffer…that is, the taxpayer suffers.

Did you know?

new york property taxes cap

That 2% you’ve been hearing so much about is only a small part of the so-called “Tax Cap Law.” In reality, it’s just one part of an eight-step formula that determines the maximum allowable tax levy the school district can pass with a simple majority. You can read more about the process of how the levy is determined here:

NEW YORK STATE’S PROPERTY TAX CAP A Citizens Guide
Understanding New Yorks Property Tax Cap

This is a short video put out by the Bethlehem School District:
Understanding New York State’s New Property Tax Levy Cap
But keep in mind that the video was produced by an organization with a bias in favor of schools, teachers, and superintendents. But despite all that, some of the content is helpful.

Since the state government allocates a portion of property taxes received each year to the various public school districts and the government also provides tax relief to property taxpayers in the form of a credit (STAR), the relief is in the form of the school levies credit. Tax rules govern the annual levy and relief.

property taxEvery property owner must pay the school levy property tax even if he has no children attending public school in this state. And, as the law now stands, you may own property in the district, such as if you are a business, but don’t reside in the district and you will not be able to vote on the budget! Now that’s fair, isn’t it? This is based on the government reasons on the founding principle that all children should be educated at the public’s expense (this actually is a Protestant, Calvinist, principle that entered the government’s principles). Since the state and local governments have the legal responsibility and mandate of managing public education, it levies taxes for this purpose.

Tax Cap: In 2011 the New York state legislature passed, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed into law the historic property tax cap. The law requires the local governments and school districts to raise taxes no more than 2 percent or the rate of inflation, whichever is less. As important is that the tax cap is not a dictate from Albany.  Communities may raise or lower property taxes according to the needs of the community. If the taxpayers want to pay more taxes they can, and they can override the cap with a 60 percent vote for schools and by a 60 percent vote of the governing body for local governments.

Tax Rate: The rate at which your local government determines your property will be taxed. For example: You own a home assessed at $100,000. Your tax rate is $30.00/1000. Your tax bill will be $3,000.

Property owners often confuse property taxes and assessments. For instance, some taxpayers attempt to “grieve” their taxes. You can grieve your assessment, but not your taxes.

Assessments not taxes – Assessments are determined by local assessors when they determine the value of your property

[Editor’s Note: We have it on unconfirmed information that the Town of Coeymans will be announcing on or about May 1, 2013, the news that single-family homes in the town of Coeymans are decreasing in value. Do you wonder why? Just check out the town’s feeble-minded plan for rezoning! Or would you want to live in a place that gets the pubicity that RCS has been getting from the Times Union? Sure, everyone likes Nazis, especially everyone wants Coeymanazis to run their lives for them! Sure buy property in the town of Coeymans and regret it for the rest of your life…]

Tax levy – is the term used to describe the amount the school board, town board, etc. needs to recoup to meet their budget requirments. If the budget goes up (more staff, more services, more programs, more spending) the levy is likely to go up. If staff, services, programs, spending are cut, the levy is likely to decrease to zero or even become negative. (The terms “tax levy” and “to levy taxes” are only distantly related; they are not really the same.)

Taxes are determined by school boards, town boards, city councils, county legislatures, village boards and special districts.  These jurisdictions are responsible for taxes, not assessments.

  • Your assessment could increase, and your tax bill decrease.
  • Your assessment could increase, and your tax bill remains the same.
  • Your assessment could decrease, and your tax bill increase.

For example, the illustration below might help to understand this:

This figure illustrates how tax assessment, levy, tax bill interact. source: Assessments vs. Taxes

This figure illustrates how tax assessment, levy, tax bill interact.
[Source: NYS Department of Taxation & Finance, Assessments vs. Taxes]

(If you feel your assessment is too high, you should discuss it with your assessor and consider contesting it.)

So, you see, dear readers, it’s confusing only if certain people want to make it confusing. I guess they figure if your head’s spinning and your ears are ringing you’ll do anything just to make it go away. Even vote they way they want you to vote. We’re here to make certain you vote as an informed voter and not as a ventriloquist’s dummy.

[Editor’s Note: If you want to read about how the state formula works for figuring out the levy in relation to the tax cap, here’s an interesting read from the NYS Education Department: Tax Cap Guidance (NYS) March 2012.]

P.S. for John Rousseau, who  recently publicly commented that he

” …had some time so I thought I’d pull out some old records and do some ‘math.’ Did a quick random sampling (that’s an actual statistical term, for all you math-folk) [Editor’s Note: Very impressive, John; thanks for prejudging everyone to be ignorant! But maybe you should take a closer look at the socio-demographics—that means the affiliations and the composition of the board at the time, John.]

  • animation_turkey_head_looking_aroundUnder Scott Hughes – 98%
  • Under John Bonafide – 99%
  • Under Gerry Deluca – 99.875%*

That’s as far back as my records go. I’m sure they aren’t completely complete. But why should accuracy get in the way of statistics.
Mathematically speaking, those guys were pretty good too, right?”

Wrong! All that your figures show is that you’re a sure winner when you play with loaded dice or with a stacked deck! All you have to do is get your clubmembers on the board and Hey, MAGIC! The numbers soar! That’s not statistics nor is it math. It’s Coeymanazi politics!

Moreover, if Rousseau has that much time on his hands to do that kind of statistics he really needs to find a life.

More Rogue, Retaliative Teachers

It Would Be an Understatement to Say that the State of Affairs at the RCS High School is Literally Ass-End-Backwards; And It’s the Prima Donna Teachers Who are the Delinquents, Not the Students!

Why Does RCS Have So Many Pinhead Teachers?

Why Does RCS Have So Many Pinhead Teachers?


Readers Comment

One reader asks: “Why is it we seem to get stuck with all the lunatic teachers and the good ones don’t stay?” Well, there’s some local wisdom that goes something like this: “Shit sticks…” While that’s only partially true, we do have some good teachers but they mind their own business and teach. The bad ones know a good thing when they see it; besides, they have nowhere else to go, nobody was someone else’s problems. And, furthermore, because we’re actually stuck with them, the community goes into denial, and forces itself to believe their precious assets and can do no wrong. It’s similar to having an old junker and putting money into minor repairs, finally, when the biggie comes up, we’ve got so much invested in it already we justify to ourselves going that extra mile. In the end we still have a junk car but we’ve invested a new car’s value in it! Doesn’t make sense but we do that. Same with teachers, elected officials, police departments. We have to admit to ourselves what is real and what is unreal or we’re doomed to remain an ongoing backwoods scandal. Another reader mentions that “unions are for bad teachers, the good ones don’t need a union!” How true. But the unions are there and they’re doing their damage…until we change that fact. Union or no union, parents and the community have the real power to make things change but we have to use it. This blog is an example of local power, and that local power has gone beyond community, county, state, even national borders. Our issues are now on the international map!


Now, that having been said… Here we have this character, and character he is, a character from some second rate Dork Tracey comic strip. Robert Dorrance. Excuse me, “ProfessorRobert Dorrance (it seems he really likes himself, thinks he’s pretty smart. But he’s actually quite, well, pathetic.) or so he likes to call himself. Sorry, Bobby Pinhead, you’re misrepresenting yourself when you give yourself titles like “professor.”  You’re simply an overpaid high-school teacher, bud.

Well, Mr Genius Dorrance recently stepped in a pile when, true to the abuse tradition at RCS High School, he writes up a student for not showing up in his class. Sounds like a reasonable thing to do, doesn’t it? Well, if you think so, you’d better pull your head out because if it looks normal and it’s RCS it’s probably really bizarre. And so it is. You see, several days before wonder-boy Bob Dorrance writes the kid up, his parents send in a notification that the student will be out for medical reasons; he was to have surgery.

You’d think that the geniuses at the High School would have the sense to communicate (for more on communications at RCS see our article “Zombification“). No way, José! Communicate? So, the student is out on a Thursday and a Friday, in surgery, recovering, and dud Dorrance writes the kid up. Nice going, Bobby “Pinhead” Dorrance!

We’ve received unconfirmed information that “Professor” Bobby “Pinhead” Dorrance is his own hospitality center, too. Seems that the teachers at the RCS high school are very special people, far above having to give a second thought about energy. Just set up your own hospitality corner in your classroom! Coffee anyone? One lump or two? Cream? Isn’t that the way it goes “Professor” Dorrance? Is that coffee pot and hospitality nook still in your classroom, Bob? Real energy conscious. Now where’s that principal, what’s his name, Brian? Brian Bailey? Isn’t he responsible for enforcing policy in the high school?

What's the next step, Mr Dorrance, table service?

What’s the next step, Mr Dorrance, white-glove table service?

Look, there is a distict policy that prohibits coffee pots, fridges, hotplates, and the like for personal use on school property. The main enforcers of the policy are supposed to be the head custodian and the principal. Yes, that’s Brian Bailey, isn’t it? HELLO! Principal Bailey, head custodian…look under your noses…waddaya see? Maybe they should be hauled in to explain to the RCS board of education, to the interim superintendent in public session, why this is going on in the high school. Can’t we expect teachers, administrators to be adult enough not to need personal supervision? Are these the people who are supervising the students!?! Is this nutz or wot? Ass-end-backwards is what it is!

Gimme my stipedn!!!

Gimme my stipend!!!

This is the same Bob Dorrance who was running the early morning weights room…for a stipend. Yeah, he’d go in early and open up the weights room for the guys but it wasn’t out of dedication or fellowship, it was for a stipend. $ MONEY $ Everyone in the system has to grab as much of the budget as possible. That’s why the highest-rated course at RCS high school is GREED, and the course is taught by real experts. Well, the district wised up when the teachers clique lost their majority and Bobby Boy lost his stipend. Bye-bye stipend. Enter evil Bobby Biatch…teachers get that way when they get caught with their hands in the taxpayers’ cookie jar…we now have a very unhappy “Professor” on the loose and he’s going to test the ice every chance he can, and punish anyone he can. Well, he can try…and he’ll answer for it, too!

And, lest we forget, this is one of the RCS Sports Association geniuses, you know the bunch of Coeymanazis who didn’t have have to answer to anyone. You know, the bunch who were an inch away from tax fraud…did I say an “inch” away? The same ones who finally didn’t come up with any documents but the did come up with an new RCS Sports Association with a new board etc. I guess it was easer to come up with a new association and board than it was to come up with the documents. Right?

Yes! I am your evil, greedy role model!</big?

Yes!
I am your evil, greedy role model!

And last but not least, we’ve put this guy in a central position as a role model for our young men: “Professor” Bobby Pinhead Dorrance is a [$ paid $] varsity football coach! Just the kind of role model we need for the young men…just the kind of guy we want them to grow up to be. A real hero! NOT! We have published plenty on our fine athletics coaches: abusing players, foul language losing matches, etc., etc. So Dorrance’s having found a cozy niche with the other clique members shouldn’t be a big surprise to anyone–except the parents of the athletes.

Foul-mouthed RCS coach loses match for athletes!

Foul-mouthed RCS coach loses match for athletes!

So, dear residents and taxpayers, we have a runner-up for the Matt “the Mutt” Miller American Kennel Club Butt-sniffing Award: Mr Robert “Bobby Pinhead” Dorrance for irresponsibility in the energy conservation efforts, student abuse, ignorance, and greed. Another product of your New York State United Teachers union ensuring that teachers get away with anything at your and your childrens’ expense. Your tax dollars at work, keeping hypocrisy alive and well in our RCS community!

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:

Resignation or Termination: Matt Miller’s Choice

בס”ד

The Buzz Is That There is a Letter Out and Circulating that Demands that the Commissioner of the NYS Education Department Accept Matthew J. Miller’s Voluntary Resignation or, in the alternative, Proceed with a Termination Process.

Is Matt Miller Almost Out the Door>

Is Matt Miller Almost Out the Door?

We have received a final copy of the letter that is allegedly intended to go first to the New York State Education Department Commissioner, with copies to the RCS CSD interim superintendent of schools, to the RCS CSD board of education, and to the New York State Attorney General, with a request for investigation.

To read a copy of the letter to the NYSED Commissioner, click on this link: NYSED Commissioner Letter re Matthew J Miller_redacted We will adapt the letter so that it can be personalized and sent by anyone in the district who would like to join in the effort to remove Matthew J. Miller from this district. We will publish the template letter on this blog over the next couple of days.

It seems that a considerable volume of incriminating evidence has been assembled and is ready to go out that is likely to put our favorite mutt, Matt Miller, in the hot seat.

Whatcha Gonna Do Now, Matt?

Whatcha Gonna Do Now, Matt?

We have received disclosure of documents demanded under New York’s Freedom of Information Law that shows that Matt Miller collected far more than we had originally expected during his profitable stint as double-dipping Energy Educator/Manager in the RCS school district. We’ll publish that information, too, as soon as we can verify it.

Citizen residents are really taking the reins on these issues, we’re pleased to say and we urge them to continue the good fight. Well done, so far.

It’ll be interesting to see just what the New York State United Teachers, NYSUT,  is made of and how far they’ll go to support one of their membership and who is a local teachers union rep,  and who appears to have no morals or ethics at all. Not that unions are the role model for honesty or ethical conduct, but they do tend to be survivors and, as we all know, there’s no honor among thieves.

We’ll also see, if the letter actually does go out to the Commissioner of NYSED, the NYS Attorney General, and to state and federal lawmakers, what the ripple effect  might uncover.

Support your RCS CSD board of education non-teacher citizen-resident members.

Flex Those Muscles, People!

Flex Those Muscles, People!

Sorry, but it’s getting late and I have to head off the the RCS CSD board of education meeting to do some investigative reporting. We’ll continue this later. Thanks for your patience!

Is The Teachers Union, NYSUT, Behind the Libel?

Special Note: Did you think NYSUT wasn’t watching? We published this article at 12:57 and between 1:03 p.m. and 1:28 p.m., that’s in the first 30 minutes, NYSUT had visited this blog and this article 5 different times! They’re staying on top of this one!

 We Have to Consider Whether the New York State United Teachers, the Teachers Union Represented by Matt Miller in the RCS Central School District is Behind the Outrageous Attacks on This Community, Our School District, and our Board of Education Members.

Teachers Union (NYSUT) & Times UnionLYNCH MOB

Teachers Union (NYSUT) & Times Union
LYNCH MOB

And we have to seriously consider whether teachers union, NYSUT, is connected or behind the Albany Times Union, our own regional whore-paper, that is consistently attacking our community, our school district, our board of education. After all, the Times Useless is a liberal rag and NYSUT is a union, after all, with loads of money to flash around.

Isn’t It Interesting That Just Days After We Published An Article Criticising Matt Miller and His Supporters that the Times Useless Publishes an Editorial Attaching the RCS Board of Education? I See a Connection, Don’t You?

We recently reported on local teachers union flapperdoodle Matt Miller’s corrupt practices (double-dipping as energy manager) and his hypocritical double standards (he and his supporters trash parents who file complaints against the district for real problems while Matt Miller files complaints because his double/triple dipping was stopped!).

We also pointed out that Matt Miller, as NYSUT’s local representative in our district, is putting in only about 1/3 teaching and in the other 2/3 of his time he’s doing union-connected activities. Even if it were the other way around, you should not be paying for his time as a union representative!

Matt Miller to New York State United Teachers Union & Times Useless: HELP ME!

A Very Dirty Pot Dares to Call A Clean Kettle Black

 The RCS District’s Very Dirty Pot, Matt “the Mutt” Miller, Continues His Ridiculous Campaign of Harassment Against a Respected Board of Education Member, and It Has the Foul Smell of Retaliation.

Talking-out-ass


Stop Talking, Matt!
We know where you’re coming from!

What does our very humiliated and disgraced teachers union representative and employee of the RCS School District, Matt “the Mutt” Miller, with all of his baggage have to say about an elected community representative who has done nothing but good for the community, but who has been made to suffer attacks from the Coeymanazis, we may very well ask.

RCS high school science teacher Matt Miller has a lot of baggage and isn’t the most credible spokesperson for any organization. who are you to judgeThis article reminds readers of this shady character’s history and provides an analysis and comparison of Matt Miller’s past and why he would be well advised to lay low, stay out of sight, and shut his mouth. But he’s too stupid to realize that his attacks on others only draw more attention to him and for the worst of reasons. We can conclude that parents and residents should take a closer look at the people in sensitive positions to whom our young people are exposed, and what kind of role models they represent, what morality they are exemplifying for our developing citizens. We suggest that teachers like Matt Miller are not the best we should offer in our schools. We can and should do better.

In fact, Matt Miller shows all the signs of a drowning, desperate man, grasping at anything floating by to save himself, even at a straw. Buzz is that he’s lost all effectiveness as a representative for the teachers union, he’s lost credibility, lost face, lost support of those he’s representing. That’s true, isn’t it Matt?

Matt Miller’s most recent gaff, there have been so damned many, I’ve lost track, is an example of repeated misinformation and distortion of facts that lead to our community believing a lie to be true.

I don’t think it’s necessary to repeat the lessons on sovereignty, autonomy, legal personhood, corporation because either you know or you don’t want to know. We are all sovereign which means we all have a right to govern ourselves and make decisions that affect us. Government is created to serve the people, not the other way around. That went out when we got rid of the king. But we are living in a perverse system, still. We allow ourselves to be drowned in lies that, if told to us often enough, we believe are true. Anyone with any intelligence and guts looks at the situation and becomes angry, very angry and does what he or she can to fix at least his or her personal situation.

wolf sheeps clothesI do draw the line, however, at my representatives in Washington and the Supreme Court giving corporations legal personhood and rights that I should be enjoying. Many of you marched to the corporations’ Black Friday and Extended Black Friday drumbeat, like a bunch of rats dancing to the tunes of the Pied Piper, to interrupt your family holiday meal to rush out and trample each other to get to buy crap the corporations have told you you need, most if it Chinese, and which will likely be either broken or you’ll be told is outdated by January 2nd. Pretty soon, Congress and the Supreme Court will give my toaster the right to vote.

So, my advice to anyone, but Matt Miller, especially, is that if you want to pick on “someone” for not paying taxes, go for the biggies: the corporations, your legislators, the 1%, and stop picking on the local working man.

The result of all of this is that the sheeple run to hide behind locked doors, and the wolves are free to wander the streets, to make the rules. But there are still a few intrepid, brave hearts that venture out to kick a wolf, or at least to throw a stone. Where are the rest of you when it’s happening right here in your community?

First of all, let’s do a little review: In May 2012, a school budget was passed under suspicious circumstances, circumstances that threw the RCS community into a scandal and led to investigations and audits by the state authorities. The RCS board of education was updated and the balance of power shifted. The citizen-business group (Krzykowski, Lukens, Robbins, Sylvester, Vadney) were now in the majority and the teachers clique (Engel, Reville, Latter, Whalen), all teachers or married/closely related  to teachers, were now the minority. With more than $42 million at stake, the teachers clique and their supporters started to fight really dirty, and the misinformation and downtalking was out of control.

The entire scenario was complicated by the involvement of Matt Miller, the teachers union rep, and former Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, teacher and then superintendent, who was totally incompetent and had no control over anything, except padding her retirement check. She announced her intention to retire giving short notice and jumped ship.

The Coeymanazis, a group of loudmouthed hypocrites who lost all credibility once the voting irregularities were made the subject of public investigation, and their hyped up claims and promises could not be backed up, stood by and got desperate. They upped the ante by continuing their attacks on Mr Rodney Krzykowski, but also instigated a botched up frame up of the school board president, Mr J. Vadney, whose family was threatened and even attacked, and they spewed unsavory comments about other citizen-business boardmembers through the Times Union (a.k.a. the Times Useless) newspaper and the Times Union blogs, until they were caught using multiple phoney names to post multiple comments.

None of the Coeymanazis have any official positions, except for Matt “the Mutt” Miller, who is the RCS school district teachers union representative. Mr Miller has his own baggage to check, as you’ll see as you read on.

First of all, let’s not be mistaken regarding Mr Matt Miller. He is a teacher and he is the local representative of the New York State United Teachers (NYSUT). His interests are in protecting the rights of the teachers and promoting their interests. He has no interest as union representative in protecting your children, parents’ interests, or the community.

(We recent acquired a copy of a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) demand for disclosure of information regarding the RCS CSD energy manager position. Read the FOIL demand at FOIL Request re Matt Miller_redacted.)

Here is the NYSUT mission statement. See if you can find students, parents, community anywhere in it:

Through a representative democratic structure, New York State United Teachers improves the professional, economic and personal lives of our members and their families, strengthens the institutions in which they work, and furthers the cause of social justice through the trade union movement.

And Mr Miller is working a reduced teaching load (2.5 hours) and devotes the rest of his day to his union work. Mr Miller receives his full teacher’s salary ($80,000+), full benefits, professional enhancement perqs, etc. at your expense. In other words, you are paying his teacher’s salary, the majority of which is going to fund his union work. That’s like Congress funding the salaries of the Washington gun, pharmaceutical, or automobile manufacturers lobbies!

Quite frankly, I don’t really care if this arrangement is in his contract. It’s wrong. If he’s doing union work at the school, the union should be reimbursing the district for the time he spends as union rep. Or, if it’s so important to Mr Miller, maybe Mr Miller should do his union work on his own time or take personal or vacation time to do it. Or the Union should pay Miller directly. After all, the New York State Teachers Union apparently isn’t hurting for money, judging by their building at 800 Troy Schenectady Road in Latham, New York. It’s incredible!

Snatch it and Run like hell, Matt!

Which brings us to a subject near and dear to our hearts: Mr Matt Miller’s double dipping. Yes, we consider Miller to be a double-dipper. Worse still, we point to the fact that until the current RCS board of education majority put a stop to it, Miller was actually triple-dipping! Yes! Triple-dipping. Your darling Matt Miller, part-time teacher getting a full-time salary at your expense, was actually getting an additional $10,000 payment (some say as much as $18,000) a year to be district energy manager: He told people to switch off lights, for example, turn off computers, close windows when the heat was on. DUH! That was being paid for the same time Miller was (1) supposed to be teaching, (2) doing his union work, (3) playing energy manager. Triple-dipping at taxpayer expense.

(We recent acquired a copy of a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) demand for disclosure of information regarding the RCS CSD energy manager position. Read the FOIL demand at FOIL Request re Energy Manager redacted.)

One of the very first actions taken by the new majority (Krzykowski, Lukens, Robbins, Sylvester, Vadney)  on the RCS school board under president John Vadney and vice-president Mike Robbins, supported by all of the citizen-business members and opposed by all of the teachers clique, was to dump Miller and his energy manager racket. Needless to say dear Matt Miller was not a happy camper and it seems had vengeance in his bald little head: he always had something to say about parents filing grievances for injustices and abuse done to their children, now Matt Miller files a grievance against the RCS school district. But that’s not all, he launches a campain of negative statement against the district, too.

Matt Has Reason to Feel Depressed

Matt Has Reason to Feel Depressed

Well, if the teachers were doing their jobs and Matt Miller were doing his teaching for which he was being very well paid, maybe our graduation rates wouldn’t have been in the 70% range. Think about that. Maybe the teachers and the students would have had brains enough to turn off the lights, too!

Well, the citizen-business majority of the RCS board of education (Vadney, Robbins, Krzykowski, Lukens, Sylvester), after having gotten rid of Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, took the step of hiring a proven heavy-hitter, no-nonsense, superintendent, Dr Alan McCarthy, whose experience, wisdom and know-how kept the Vorheesville school district in the high 90% range in graduation rates.

The teachers clique, and especially union rep Matt Miller, saw the writing on the wall. Dr McCartney would not put up with their antics, so they went on a smear campaign, led by the teachers clique (Engel, Reville, Latter, Whalen), the Coeymanazis (led by Jerry and Cathy Deluca), and of course, Matt “the Mutt” Miller, the teachers union representative. Failed again. McCartney took control, held meetings, gave instructions, and had the mess under control and assumed command. Bravo! Dr McCartney!

Dr Alan McCartney was and is a force to be reckoned with and knows how to handle obstreperous and unruly children, even if they happen to be teachers. So it was, after a public outburst performance by Matt Miller, Miller and Dr McCartney had a “a cordial meeting of the minds,”  according to a reliable source. Our interpretation: Miller was put on notice.

Dr McCartney is preparing his justification and proposal for reinstating the 5 p.m. bus run for students who stay at school for remedial support; the justification will be  presented to the RCS Board of Education for consideration. Dr McCartney is making this important proposal by finding the funds already there–that means without it costing taxpayers more–to provide remedial help for students lagging behind (why would that be if RCS teachers are so great?), and forcing the teachers to stay and provide the remedial help. Of course, this doesn’t go over very well with the teachers, the teachers clique, the teachers union,  and least of all with Matt Miller, the district teachers union representative. Imagine that! Teachers are being held accountable for what they’re being paid to do! Added services at no additional cost to the taxpayer! The sun’s starting to shine again on RCS!

Under superintendent Elizabeth Smith, bullying and student abuse was rampant in the RCS schools, especially at the high school. We’ve already published the fact that there is evidence that teacher Matt Miller was involved in inciting acts of bullying and placing students at risk. The bullying was common knowledge, even parents were being treated with disrespect, the athletics coaches were abusing students, and the list goes on. Where were the teachers while all of this was happening? Where were the principals? Where was Elizabeth Smith? Where was Matt Miller? Yes, that’s all history now. But the disease is not cured until you cut the entire cancer out, leave a single cancer cell in the body and it can flare up again! There’s still disease in the RCS school district that needs to be excised before we can say the disease is cured.

This week an article appeared on the RCS School District website that reported on the RCS Greenhouse, Community Greenhouse Project To Benefit RCS Students in which Matt Miller is mentioned for his contribution, and of course the teachers get top billing, while the real promoters and workers are relegated to a list. Well, the record shows that one of the principal obstacles to that greenhouse was none other than Matt Miller and his gang. So what’s new. We’re still giving postive honorable mention to people who obstruct progress. Nothing new but things are changing, fast.

(By the way, I think it’s time that the articles that appear on that RCS School District website start to give names of the persons who write them. We’d like to know whose opinion we are reading. Isn’t that fair? After all it’s a public information source for community and residents and we’d like to know who’s doing the writing.)

Matt Miller is just a small fish swimming in a cesspool of bigger caprophages (shit-eaters). Here are just a couple of examples that we’ve areadly reported on but we feel you need to be reminded:

  • Coeymans supervisor Flach together with Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple has proposed a gem of a proposal for eliminating the Coeymans Police Department and replacing it with a local, professional law enforcement force provided by the Albany County Sheriff. Coeymans keeps local law enforcement but the uniforms and cars change, and the town saves about $500,000 each year in the first four years and about $750,000 in the fifth year. Anybody with half a brain would jump up and shout, “No-brainer! Yes!” But not coeymans board members Thomas “Tom” E. Dolan, Dawn Rogers, and Thomas A. Boehm, who oppose anything that might make a positive difference in Coeymans. Dolan, Rogers, and Boehm have to go! They’re losers. Say YES! to Supervisor Flach’s vision and YES! to Sheriff Apple’s offer to save us from the Coeymanazis!
  • Put the Ravena village council and mayor John Bruno on the carpet and ask what the F***K is going on with this scandalous insider wheeling and dealing with the Bruno-Deluca-Warner Memorial Fitness Center. Everything went on behind closed doors from the decision to have a fitness center after they throw the library out, to who was going to run it (Cathy Deluca), to spending on their own $40,000 of taxpayer dollars to buy used fitness equipment and transport it from the failed fitness center location to space formerly occupied by the library. You citizens had no say whatsoever in all of this and you need to ask WHY? Someone has to be held accountable for this illegal action by mayor John Bruno and his minions.
  • There’s an awful lot of croneyism, corruption, double-dealing, conflict of interest in the Ravena-Coeymans community.
You Thinking What I'm Thinking?

You Thinking What I’m Thinking?

The first thing that comes to mind is the Michael Biscone Syndrome. That’s where sonny boy follows in daddy’s corrupt footsteps and takes over everything legal and illegal in the community. That’s where law steps all over justice and the scheister tells the courts what’s to be done. It’s where Michael J. Biscone operates both as village attorney and as a private attorney in matters involving the village, submits vouchers for payment as village attorney and makes money billing privately for basically the same thing. There are a lot of Biscone vouchers in Ravena village hall that need to be audited and audited NOW!  We might want also to ask how is Biscone misusing his corrupt positioning to cash in on village resources? Take for instance a certain trailor park on property owned by Guess who? on Winnie Avenue, and a certain water line that was laid to that property owned by Guess who? And there’s more, much more than that. But if you don’t ask you’ll never know.

  • Main Street Ravena-Coeymans is fast becoming a ghost town. The ruse of leaving up business signs (Bush’s, Ledger, etc.) in front of long dead enterprises is losing its effect. I can’t help but think that instead of spending $40,000 and more on used fitness equipment the money could have been spent more wisely on some sort of promotion of the village and hamlet, perhaps to attract the interest of new enterprise. But given the record of retaliation, corruption and special-interests in this community there’s not the chance of a snowball in hell that anything is going to happen until we get the sinister plans of the Biscones, the Brunos, the Persicos, Albanos, Delucasand their Coeymanazi henchmenunder control and we take back the community. Clans like the Brunos and Biscones don’t want to share what they’ve got and don’t want to miss out on what little remains to be had. They’ll try all of their old tricks and a few new ones to suppress anything that isn’t going to benefit them. That’s the problem we have with the village idiots who serve them and the retaliation and intimidation that’s done to anyone who doesn’t bend over for them.
  • And let’s not forget that BoBo-cop phoney, Jerry Deluca and his partner in conspiracies, Cathy Deluca. There’s so much about those two characters on this blog that all you have to do is start typing their name and you’ll get literally pages of incriminating facts.

And the henchmen doing their dirty work come from the most unlikely places, like in the schools. Right, Matt Miller?

So, good people, loyal readers, it’s time to really get together and make the good things happen that are already popping up, at least in the schools where Dr McCartney and the citizen-business board members are doing great positive things. With a great leader at the help of the schools and a community-oriented majority on the board, the schools appear to be in safer hands now than ever. Now that parents and residents can trust the superintendent and the citizen-business board members to protect their children and their interests, we can now turn all of that energy that was spread everywhere and concentrate that energy on improving the RCS community overall. We can start locally and start saying positive things about our superintendent and school board members and stop tripping them up only to bruise ourselves. Start thinking in positive terms. Let’s clean up the village Of Ravena and the hamlet of Coeymans by getting to the core of the corruption. Take back the community, people!
