McCartney, DiAcetis, RCS Fail at Education

When so – called educators don’t educate and indiscriminately create and enforce knee – jerk policies, and superintendents stupidly announce “Rules are Rules”, that’s not education people, that’s fascism, totalitarianism, extremism. It’s not education it’s automation, creating sheeple out of sensitive and responsive minds. Is that the plan underlying today’s “education”? Is the plan to create either sheeple or criminals? Black or white: “Rules are Rules,” OBEY!

RCS high-school principal Tom DiAcetis, Superintendant Alan McCartney’s Education

McCartney’s “Rules are rules” mantra simply doesn’t work. Where’s the education in all of this? This sort of model is used to train dogs and monkeys, not adolescent human beings. The overriding policy is: Ban it, Don’t explain it.

failed

With the deterioration of American family systems, the marginalization of religion and churches, the national and local lies and propaganda, the criminal corruption and hypocrisy we have not only in our courts, legislatures and town halls but in many of the homes where many of these young adults live is bad enough. But when we put cowards and fools in executive and administrative positions in our schools, OUR SCHOOLS, and they are contradicting everything of value, ethical, moral and civil, that’s where we have to shout very loudly: WE’VE HAD ENOUGH! GET OUT!

BAN THIS BITCH!!!

BAN THIS BITCH!!!

This is one of those times where we have to say: The students are right!

Isn’t it the job of the teachers we pay outrageously high salaries to teach our young people not ways of watching but ways of seeing; not ways of hearing but ways of listening; not ways of simply being but ways of be – ing, experiencing. Using this most recent example of the failure of our teachers, principals, administrators, isn’t this yet another example of the failure of education in our RCS schools? This is exactly what we saw during the Bruno – Warner dictatorship in Ravena when they were openly violating rights protected by the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It’s the very thing we’ve been writing about in our essays about the corruption and obstruction of justice in the Coeymans police department. That same corruption and obstruction of justice, the violation of protected rights has found its way into our schools, people, because we have allowed it to happen by loading our board of education, our district offices, and our school administrative offices and classrooms with individuals who are self – serving and members of an exclusive club –  – exclusive because although they want our tax dollars to pad their pockets, they don’t want anything to do with us or hear from us.

We are a nation of laws. We are NOT a nation of justice.
As RCS Superintendent Alan McCartney says: Rules are Rules.

In our opinion, the RCS school system and its district offices are the homeland enemies, not a bunch of camel – jockeys six thousand or eight thousand miles away! It’s actually principals like Tom DiAcetis, union-lackeys, crook teachers like Matt Miller, superintendents like Allan McCartney who are confusing the hell out of the kids and making them schizoid. Is that the plan? On thtake back americae one hand, we have a president and a congress who just last week were handing out high military honors, the Medal of Honor, to men already dead or nearly so on national television. Then we have the president of the United States announcing (finally) his “strategy” (Strategy? Well, he seems to think it’s a strategy. Sounds more like a smoke screen.)  to weaken alleged terrorists in Syria and in God knows how many other areas. What’s Obama going to use in this battle against terrorism? Chitlins? The ideology taught by our RCS teachers and represented by the RCS board of education and their parasite superintendent, Alan McCartney? We have advertisements for military organizations and military recruitment and careers everywhere you look. We have the National Rifle Association organizing huge rallies. We have “Repeal the Safe Act” everywhere you look. We have a tradition of Rod and Gun Clubs, Sportsmen’s Clubs. One of our traditional activities is hunting. We have a Second Amendment, too. Then we have our educators—and I’m using that term very loosely, indeed—banning T – shirts because they might have a depiction of a firearm on them! WTF! These people in our schools call themselves “educators”?  They’re imbeciles receiving outrageous salaries and benefits. Worse still, most of them are cowards living off the sweat, blood and sacrifices of others!

In fact, aren’t most public meetings opened with a sort of prayer called the Pledge of Allegiance? Don’t we erect monuments at public expense commemorating veterans and past wars? Don’t we have a federal holiday called Veteran’s Day? Aren’t all of these somehow connected with the Armed Forces, or something like that? Where have our so-called “educators” been through all this (probably dodging the draft or living the good life while others are dying the patriotic death). We don’t need or want cowards teaching our kids or running our schools and towns!

They still are required to teach the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights in our public schools, aren’t they?

The feminist pastor of the New Baltimore Reformed Church decided a couple of years ago that the American flag did not have a place in front of the congregation, near the lecterns, and moved the flag to the back of the sanctuary. Some in the congregation raised hell; some even left that congregation because of that action. Several years ago, the pastor of the Roman Catholic Church of St Patrick in Ravena, offended parishioners when he refused to have the coffin of dead veterans draped with the American flag in the church (he was complying with ritual instructions, actually). Again, parishioners raised hell and many went elsewhere. And, dear readers, those are churches; remember separation of church and state. What those so – called pastors failed to recognize is that their congregation members and parishioners are Americans 6 days out of the week and Christians only one day, if that. They live the American way 6 days a week; they worship only one, and many not even that.

It used to be that our schools taught us how to be good citizens while exercising our rights. Our schools and teachers taught us values and morality. Some of those values was loyalty, respect, honesty, integrity, fairness, gratitude and—surprisingly—the notion of patriotism, a form of loyalty and respect, very close to family values, actually.

Our schools and educators are sending mixed messages, the wrong messages. Parents are not carrying their fair share of the load; our local, state and national governments have become so corrupt and dishonest that the only way to cover their tracks is with propaganda, misinformation and control. Our schools, obviously, are following that same evil example.


take it back

DiAcetis’s and McCarney’s Warrior Option: Pee on’em!

Editor’s Comment. It’s obvious to us that there’s a great deal of dishonesty and hypocrisy involved here on both sides: the Ravena – Coeymans – Selkirk Central School District (RCS CSD) and the National Guard. There’s also a very deep and dangerous gap in the RCS CSD’s understanding of proper notice, due process, protected rights, and a large number of other issues of neglect or indifference. On that latter note we really have to ask why we are paying DiAcetis and McCartney salaries of more than $100,000 plus benefits to run such a shoddy show.

DiAcetis: I pee on you! I win!

O-14-00369​1

We also have to ask whether the RCS CSD gives any consideration to the trauma and damage that they cause to adolescents by the principal’s, the school employees’ and the superintendent’s arbitrary and overly discretionary so – called discipline. What if the kid’s wearing the shirt to honor a fallen friend or relative? What if the student is wearing the shirt as an expression of solidarity with the armed forces? What if….? Aren’t these school officials supposed to be trained in some level of psychology? Or are they indifferent to the effects their own conduct is having on these young people?

We’d like to know where the RCS CSD dress code is published. We can’t find it anywhere. And was it at some point subject to public comment at, say, a RCS board of education public meeting? If the RCS CSD dress code is intended to control behavior, to limit free expression, to do anything that might even remotely affect a person’s rights, it should be subject to public comment and should be published. Does anyone know where it is, apart from in DiAcetis’ desk drawer?

What is the RCS CSD position and policy regarding the United States Armed Forces, exactly? We have to assume that the recruiter just didn’t stroll in and hand out shirts…or can we? The RCS CSD is aware that the National Guard and other branches of the US armed forces used weapons from time to time, even deadly force. Aren’t they? What’s the big surprise that a shirt should show a military personnel with a rifle? Does Mr Diacetis or Mr McCartney think that wars and battles are won, that terrorists are subdued by the US military by our men in uniform meandering up to the enemy and threatening to pee on him if he doesn’t give up? Interesting notion but we don’t think that tactic would work on the battlefield. Weapons carried by trained warriors have proved to be effective.

Actually, in these times of US military action in so many places all over the globe, we think it’s disgraceful, scandalous bordering on the treasonous, to show such disrespect for young people’s patriotism not to mention for the efforts of our men and women in uniform. Shame on you you pitiful examples of RCS CSD cowardice!

McCartney's Secret Weapon: Pee on'em!

McCartney’s Secret Weapon: Pee on’em!

We also find it disturbing that the National Guard would even consider pandering to these cowards’ by “sanitizing” their promotional shirts. Does the National Guard really think that if their shirts don’t feature a weapon that anyone is going to think that they are going to use the “pee threat” on terrorists, looters, etc.? It’s shameful that the National Guard is acquiescing to the scandal by superficially denying the use of deadly weapons in their activities. Does the National Guard believe that by caving to the cowards that the kids are so stupid to think that guns are not used in defense activities?

Isn’t denial and hypocrisy already out of all control in our community and in this country? Can’t we just be honest for a change and call a spade a spade?

What will the cowards want next? Do we have to remove all weapons from our military displays, monuments, recruitment advertising. Perhaps a big peeing penis would be more their taste in support of the “pee threat.”

Is it too much to ask parents to know who their children are? To know where they are? To know what they’re doing? Is it too much to ask parents to tear themselves away from their smart phones, their computers, the TV and give some attention to their kids so that they don’t resort to mass murder to be heard? Go figure!


We cannot treat an entire sector of our population, a well – informed, inquisitive, powerful, and activist group like our high – school students, like a bunch of budding criminals, a bunch of retards who as soon as they see a weapon on a T – shirt they become serial killers or mass murders. We have to give them the credit they deserve for having brains and a reasoning process going on in there. We have to stop sending the mixed messages because they will call us on that and we, as adults, lose credibility with them. That’s not a good thing.

Taxpayers, residents, parents of RCS students: You have to take some responsibility for this injustice being done to our young people! We have to get the cowards, the harlots, the adult bullies, the egoists, the crooks and the scoundrels out of our schools. We have to allow our young people to develop good values, ethics, morals and character; when they express good values, ethics, morals and character we must not demoralize, criminalize them. Stop allowing your schools to create sheeple out of thinking human beings or pay the price of Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China, and Obama’s United States: Propaganda, Fascism, Totalitarianism, Rule by the Elite. It’s the another step in poisoning America.

DiAcetis, McCartney. Do it NOW!

DiAcetis, McCartney. Do it NOW!

DiAcetis and McCartney must apologize to the students, to the community, to the Armed Forces of the United States.

DiAcetis and McCartney must then RESIGN.

We believe in Choices. Given DiAcetis and McCartney a choice: RESIGN OR GET FIRED!!!

We believe in Choices.
Give DiAcetis and
McCartney a choice:

RESIGN OR GET FIRED!!!

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.

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!

Elizabeth “Betsy” R. Smith a.k.a. Superintendent Double-Talk

Mr James Latter Recently Informed the Community that The Superintendent of Schools ‘Does Not have to Answer Residents’ Questions.’

Well, Mr Latter, Although You Were Out of Order and Very Wrong to Have Written that, You’ll Be Pleased to Know that RCS Central School District Superintendent Elizabeth R. Smith Doesn’t Answer Residents’ Questions.

She Just Double-talks Them to Oblivion!

Well, That’s Being Too Fair, Actually, She’s Apparently Dyslexic … We’ve already Established That She’s Illiterate (see our article,  The RCS District RFP Is an Embarassment and a Sham!) but We Now Think She Has a Much More Serious Problem: Indifference!

But she did little when she was in the job, now she’s given her notice–after she’s padded her retirement checks with the $140,000 salary she’s ending with–and so she can wait it out another month or two, she’s a shorttimer now. She’ll leave the mess for the next crook who gets hired to the position.

We covered the illicit, delinquent, and illegal conduct of the RCS athletics coaches when they asked students to sell raffle tickets on behalf of the RCS Sports Association (see our article, Raffle, Anyone?). It was clear in that article that there was serious misconduct going on right under Brian Bailey’s and Elizabeth Smith’s noses!  We also published Superintendent Smith’s idiotic response (rather, refusal to respond) to that situation, as well in our article, No Response From District Office, Ms. Smith. It gets worse, still, because when we published our article on our suspicion of illegal money transactions at the National Bank of Coxsackie by the RCS Sports Association, there was still no action taken (see our article More Money Questions…Who’s Cashing the Checks?)

No Answers, Betsy?

So, even after all of that scandalous misconduct, we are still asking why the RCS district offices, the Superintendent, especially, and the Board of Education, too, have not addressed these concerns and put their foot down squarely on the culprits’ necks?!? We’re still asking WHO? is the RCS Sports Association, WHAT? are they doing having the coaches hand out raffle tickets to students to sell, and HOW MUCH? the RCS Bottle Blitz is paying to use school facilities!

We recently obtained a copy of a letter request addressed to Superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” R. Smith, dated September 11, 2012 and received at the District Offices on September 12, 2012, in which a concerned resident requests information regarding the action taken against the RCS athletics coaches who writes:


“Could you please advise me of the action taken with the coaches that told the students to sell raffle tickets? It is my understanding that this is illegal and the students again were placed in a situtation that gave them no recourse except to do what they were told for fear of reprisal. Also, who is collecting this money, and who and what will these funds be used for? Many community members are very concerned that inappropriate behavior on the part of our teachers/coaches continues and feel it is essential that administration take immediate, legal action against any and all staff who continue to disregard policy and law further damaging the welfare of the students as well as this district’s reputation.
[Name Redacted]


The letter is very clear in that the writer asks specific questions:

  1. What is the action taken with the coaches who unlawfully told students to sell raffle tickets?
  2. Who is collecting the money?
  3. For whom and for what will the funds be used?
  4. The question is also asked impliedly “What action the administration is going to take against any and all staff who disregard policy and law, endangering students and damaging the district’s reputation?”

The questions are pretty clear, aren’t they? You’d expect the Superintendent of schools to be able to read and understand such simple language, wouldn’t you? After all, it’s clear English, and it’s really quite clear and plainly stated, isn’t it?

But the question is nagging: Why doesn’t Superintendent Smith simply answer the questions? She simply refuses to answer our questions or those posed by residents! Why is that, we wonder!?! So, here’s your Superintendent of Schools, Ms Elizabeth “Betsy” R. Smith‘s “answer” to the resident’s written questions:


Thank you for your letter, which I opened today.  [Name Redacted] delivered it to me after our Building, Grounds and Transportation meeting yesterday.   All RCS coaches of fall sports were notified of the law restricting raffle ticket sales to adults 18 and over. 

“Community Organizations and Parent-Teacher Organizations may conduct fund raisers and raffles.  Those organizations can be contacted for information about their fund raisers.

Regards,
“Betsy”


Am I missing something, or what? “Thank you…[Name Redacted] delivered the letter…All RCS coaches…were notified of the law restricting raffle ticket sales to adults 18 and over.” What about the coaches distributing the tickets to students and telling them to sell them? Did you miss that Betsy? Didn’t you understand the question, Betsy? Need your eyes examined, Betsy?

Wot Duhn’t U Understand, Ms Smith?

“Community Organizations and Parent-Teacher Organizations may conduct fund raisers and raffles.” Duh! So what, Betsy? Who cares?
Those organizations can be contacted for information about their fund raisers.” What in hell are you blathering about, Betsy? Have you lost your mind? Who cares? Answer the damned questions, why don’t you?!?

So parents, residents, community members, on September 18, 2012, at the very next board of education meeting, we urge you to press Ms Smith for a more detailed, responsive answer to these questions we’ve raised in our article about the raffle ticket sales (see Raffle, Anyone?), Smith’s command of the English language, and the progress made in getting the required documentation from the RCS Sports Association that verifies their legality.

Who’s Cleaning Up the Money?

We will also be interested in parents, residents, taxpayers, and community members pressing Ms Smith and the Board of Education to know how much the RCS Bottle Blitz was charged for the use of the high school cafeteria on September 14th. As an outside program not affiliated with the RCS school district and not a registered organization of any kind, the RCS Bottle Blitz would be subject to hourly charges for the use of the school property, just like the community sports clubs are being charged. We need to know, How much? Who’s paying for opening and closing the building, the insurance, the utilities, the clean-up, etc.?

Superintendent Smith’s Legacy to the RCS Central School District
(+ A Couple of Lawsuits)

So, Superintendent Smith, we have just one last question for you: If YOU, the Superintendent of Schools for this RCS central school district, can’t read and comprehend simple English in a short letter asking very clear and concise questions for the purpose of answering them just as plainly and concisely, how do you intend to convince parents, taxpayers of this district that they are getting what they think they’re paying for.

Also, will you please now answer the questions the resident asked in the above letter. Thank you!

It’s Those Voices In James Latter’s and Elizabeth Smith’s Heads that Are Causing
All the Problems!

Boycott the Times Union (a.k.a. Times Useless)

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

Of Penises and Post-Its
OR
How Long is the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk Community, or Any Community With Any Self-Respect, Going to Put Up with the Turdy Times Union (a.k.a. Times Useless) and Its Pulp-Fiction Journalists?

Scott Waldman & Dayelin Roman
Times Union Turd Journalists

The Only Use the Times Useless and it’s Turdy Journalists Have for Ravena, Coeymans, or Selkirk Is to Dig Up Some Sleeze or Smear, Or Create One to Sell Their Rag! People! Wake Up! The Times Union and Its Turd Journalists Show Up In This Community Only To Make Asses of It and Its Residents! All The Times Useless Prints About Us is NEGATIVE! Or Weeks Old! They’re too stupid to do any real investigative journalism to cover the reall news! Or are they silent for other more sinister reasons?

Scott Waldman and Dayelin Roman or any of the other illiterates they send out know nothing about the community, nothing about its history, nothing about its people and saunter in whenever they need someone or something to smear or slime, do their damage and run back to their pig pens. They smeared some local person or event, they sold their rag, they collect their 30 pieces of silver. That’s American journalism? Well, it is in the Albany and Capital District region. If they’re such hot shot journalists what the hell are they doing of all places at the Times Union, in Albany, and stuck with covering not news but what they fondly refer to as the “hill towns“…I guess that makes us all the hill people, then. Sounds like a title for a cheap horror flick. Don’t know if I can deal with that label! Can you? How about Pursuit of the Post-It People or Penal Penalty of the Penis Painter? Nah! Don’t do much for me either. Let’s get back to the real business before it gets really silly.

Beat it! Times Union! (Waldman’s probably beating it as we write!)

In better days when people like that showed up in our towns they’d be sent packing…or our local constable would make their lives uncomfortable. As it is, locals welcome them and their smear as if they were covering the prom queen’s first dance with her prince. No! Too positive. Are you people nutz? Do you like being made asses of? Do you hate yourselves that much? And our local protectors, our Coeymans Police are too busy harassing and intimidating local residents to give a whit about the carpetbaggers as they roll in. Maggots!

The report on the senior’s prank distracted me from Part II of the Geneology of Corruption, Residents Complain. But when I read the benign events at the high school when compared to some of the other high schools, I breathed a sigh of relief until…

I read RCS Superintendant of schools remark (as quoted by the Times Useless’ Scott Waldman, who we all know has a little trouble with facts, truth, and correct quotes):

“In an email, Superintendent Elisabeth Smith referred to the Post-It note prank as vandalism. She said the spray-painting was “most likely” a separate incident than what happened inside the school and student access to the building being investigated. She said police are looking into the spray-paint vandalism.

“As adults in this learning community, we are not willing to sacrifice the health and safety of ourselves or our students, we are not willing to sacrifice the integrity of our school building, and we will not tolerate the loss of valuable planning or instructional time,” she wrote. “These acts and any similar acts will be dealt with in accordance with our disciplinary code of conduct, and with the assistance of local law enforcement.” (“RCS seniors suspended over Post-It prank. School administrators identify 29 students by watching YouTube video,”  Times Union by Scott Waldman, Friday, June 8, 2012.)

Vandalism?” Any other place would call it art! Where are you MOMA?

Get a grip, Ms Smith! Senior pranking as benign as this should suffice with a simple single-day suspension and the commitment of the seniors to remove the penis paint! Law enforcement!?! Are you totally nutz? Who? The Coeymans Police. Don’t make me pee myself laughing! Maybe the FBI or the State Police? Yeah! That’ll be a priority case for them. Right after they arrest the entire Coeymans Police department! My guess is that it probably was a Coeymans cop, or one of your perv teachers or coaches that did the porno artwork!

I don’t doubt for a minute that you need law enforcement to control your rabid teachers and coaches, and your bullying problem, Ms Smith, or to control the lunatics on the RCS board of education in their backstabbing and conspiracy operations, but against the seniors for a prank? You really need to get some rest and reassess your policies!

If you feel like getting heavy-handed with your disciplinary and code of conduct policies, and involving law enforcement, try doing so in handling the budget vote irregularities and fraud, your looney-toon teachers and your bullies, getting the Coeymanazis off the PTO and off the board of education*! Try those for starters and application of code of conduct policies.

*There’s little hope of enforcing policies against teachers or teachers on the BoE because the Superintendant is a former teacher and principal at the elementary school; she’s in the thick of the cliques! But give her a chance and some time. Let her prove us wrong.

Goes to the Times Union

And is Shared by Collaborators
Turd Reporters Scott Waldman, Dayelin Roman, and
Superintendant of Schools Elizabeth Smith!

And let them attend their senior picnic! That’s an event that marks an important transition for them. No one has a right to deprive them of their moments…they’re entering a horrible world and need some fond memories to look back on. It ain’t been no picnic growing up in this community!

Boycott the Times Union, Cancel Your Subscription, Tell the Times Union What You Think of Their Coverage and Performance in a Letter or E-mail! Tell Superintendant Smith what you think of her public condemnation of RCS seniors, and about her handling of the scandalous situations at the RCS high school!

Atheist Teachers, Criminal Athletic Association, Neonazi Students

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

Atheist Teachers, Criminal Athletic Association, Neonazi Students…Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School Has It ALL!

Bully Assault & Battery at
RCS High School

With the New York State Dignity Act, an important anti-bullying law going into effect this month, it is baffling, especially in view of Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk schools’ very poor record in curtailing and preventing school bullying –teacher-on-student, teacher-on-teacher, and student-on-student bullying– how it is possible that a particularly brutal attack could happen in the RCS high school only last week!

Here’s what happened and what was caught on video:

A male ninth-grade student is attempting to pass through a door. Another male student appears to be making way for the first student to pass but then jumps the first student from behind. The attacker brutally hits the first student in the head and then claws his neck, leaving numerous lacerations and fingernail marks on the first student’s neck.

The first student was able to free himself from the attacker’s grip but not without injuries.

The entire incident was caught on video tape. The parents of the injured student demanded that the New York State Police be called; the Coeymans Police responded but were allegedly sent away by the school principal, who was instructed by the parents to allow only the State Police to investigate.

Because of fears of retaliation against the injured student that were expected on the basis of previous bullying incidents at the high school, several of which were directly attributed to the instigation of teachers having made imprudent and inappropriate remarks relating to a student, the parent of the injured student had earlier called the school to advise administration and teachers to be vigilant that day. A lot of good that precaution did!

We have previously reported on the bullying problems at the RCS high school, the reports of a teacher, Matt Miller, proclaiming himself to students to be an atheist when not reciting the “one nation under God” part of the pledge of allegiance (see  “One Nation Under God”…Maybe not.)  (Miller is president of the RCS teachers association/union), two teachers at least are known to have made inappropriate remarks about students or student’s family members which led directly to bullying incidents (see Stop the Presses…EXTRA! Bully Gangs at RCS and  Real Bullying at School is By the Teachers), school administration has either been slow to respond or totally non-responsive to incidents, including even a gun on school grounds (see Gun at School &amp; Budget Vote Irregularities…Did you see… ), and the attacker in the most recent incident, a 15-year-old minor and resident of the Ravena community, Oakbrook Manor, is a self-proclaimed neo-nazi!

Because the attacker is a minor, the New York State Police have allegedly informed the parents of the injured student that no charges can be made against the attacking student! This was clearly a premeditated violent assault and battery on another student without provocation whatsoever! What’s this shite about not being able to charge the attacker? That’s utter nonsense! Charge the juvenile criminal and do it now or expect to see more bold attacks…and more lawsuits, including criminal charges against administrators and teachers! (On top of everything else, the RCS district is plagued with a corrupt and tainted police department and a serious retaliation problem. See Corrupt Coeymans Police Effectiveness Compromised!!!, Can You Explain This, Jerry?, This Is Your Town, Coeymans! Do you like it?).

Teachers are mandated reporters of such violence under the Dignity Act but at RCS they’re involved with the bullying! Many of the teachers don’t have the brains or the training to know the difference between opening their mouths and letting crap fly out and keeping their manure chutes shut!

And Brian Bailey, principal of the RCS high school, allegedly responds that he “Will take care of it [?]” (RCS has a record of non-response (see Schools, Superintendent:  No Response to Allegations of Bullying…)  Idiots! Brian Bailey is barely able to cross the street unassisted (see INCREDIBLE!!!)…what in hell is he going to do about this violent assault and battery on a student on school grounds? A neo-nazi, no less! Bailey can’t even be relied on to implement emergency security procedures when there’s a gun on school grounds! Who cares WHY the gun’s there! It’s there! You ask WHY? after you implement the security procedures, you DORK!

If school violence is not enough for your tax dollars, RCS residents and taxpayers, we also have our greedy little friend Matt Miller double-dipping and getting a stipend on top of his teacher salary (see A Fable of a Swimming Pool and Acquatic Sports and other Horror Stories). We have a RCS Athletic Association that’s come under fire for alleged criminal activity like misrepresenting itself as a non-profit, failing to file the required tax disclosures, illegally misusing Association funds for political purposes (see Sports Scandal Quiz: RCS Sports Association? and James Latter). There’s also the sociopath wanabe teacher, Josephine O’Connor, who does a “He called me fat!” dance for voters (see Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!) and then gets a village idiot, her estranged father, Joseph “Joe” Tracey,  to harass and intimidate and then to file a false charge against the president of the Board of Education, getting the innocent man arrested! (see This Is Your Town, Coeymans! Criminals Gone Wild, Part II) And then we have the reall perp and pervs, over and above Josephine O’Connor, who go unscathed despite egregious violations of confidentiality in violation of the federal FERPA law, like James Latter  (see James Latter: Why Is He Still On the Board of Education?).

The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District Recently Put to The Vote and Approved a $41,729,185 budget for the 2012-13 school year. While the proposed budget allegedly reduces spending by $708,681, or 1.7 percent compared with the current school year it increased the tax levy on property owning residents by an additional 6.8 percent! The final total was 1797 Yes votes to 1602 No votes (53 percent to 47 percent). The very close, almost a tie, provides a clear clue as to the sharp division in the community regarding this highly charged and controversial issue, not to mention the brutality and nastiness of the Yes! supporters in the campaigning leading to this vote. A large number of voting irregularities are currently under investigation by various authorities. (See More Irregularities in the Voting?, Gun at School &amp; Budget Vote Irregularities…Did you see…,, Secret Meetings on Budget at Public School?)

Your Tax Dollars Working For You and Your Children!

Bullies are Pussies!

Retaliation is a Crime: Part II

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

If you haven’t read Part I, Please go to Part I.

Retaliation Is A Crime! You Need to Run the Criminals Out of the Community! Only Then Will You Be Able To Walk the Streets, Drive Your Car, Speak Your Mind, Send Your Children to School with Peace of Mind! Get Rid of Retaliation in Coeymans and Live Your Lives In Peace! Learn What Retaliation Is and Complain!

Fight Back…NOW!

When you think “retaliation” you must think of it in terms of how the law defines it. If you don’t use that standard definition, anyone you speak to or complain to won’t know whether you are talking about what the law protects you against. That’s the way it works. If you use the right terms and understand what they mean, you gain credibility; if you don’t, well, the criminals will rule.

So, when you talk or write about, or when you file a claim against a public official or department about retaliation, here is a good definition to work by:

 A definition: Retaliation is defined and prohibited by a number of laws and is illegal, it is a crime. We are provinding a good working best definitions of retaliations as itis expressed in most lawas against retaliation and coercion:

(a) No private or public entity shall discriminate against any individual because that individual has opposed any act or practice made unlawful by the Constitution of the United States, state or federal law, local law or custom , or because that individual made a charge, testified, assisted, or participated in any manner in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing under the United States Constitution or any of its Amendments, the Bill of Rights, state or federal law, local law or custom or any part thereof.

(b) No private or public entity shall coerce, intimidate, threaten, or interfere with any individual in the exercise or enjoyment of, or on account of his or her having exercised or enjoyed, or on account of his or her having aided or encouraged any other individual in the exercise or enjoyment of, any right granted or protected by the the  United States Constitution or any of its Amendments, the Bill of Rights,, state or federal law, local law or custom.

(c) Illustrations of conduct prohibited by the laws against retaliation or coersion include, but are not limited to:

(1) Coercing an individual to deny or limit the benefits, services, or advantages to which he or she is entitled as a resident or citizen;
(2) Threatening, intimidating, or interfering with an individual who is seeking to obtain or use the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations of a public accommodation;
(3) Intimidating or threatening any person because that person is assisting or encouraging an individual or group entitled to claim the rights granted or protected by the the  United States Constitution or any of its Amendments, the Bill of Rights, federal or local laws, custom to exercise those rights; or
(4) Retaliating against any person because that person has participated in any investigation or action to enforce civil or constitutional, natural  or human rights.

The dictionary definition of retaliation is misleading: “retaliation, n. -Syn. vengeance, reprisal, punishment; see revenge,” and that’s why it’s so important for you to use the legal definitions of retaliation and to provide details and facts that show that the misconduct is a violation of the legal definition of retaliation or coercion.

Retaliation happens against students by teachers, against parents through their children, government through police or other agencies against citizens, landlords against tenants, employers against employee. Because people live in fear of retaliation and ignorance of the law protecting them, no one really knows how widespread retaliation and coercion is in communities, or how often it occurs; but the people experiencing it know it exists and how it affects them. You, reader, may be one of them so pay attention. You don’t have to put up with it anymore!

 Yet, wherever parents or citizens gather and whenever they talk among themselves, the topic of retaliation receives lively attention.

Anyone who advocates for children  or for justice and fairness in the community or for freedom of speech or freedom of association as guaranteed under the United States Constitution can become the target of retaliation. (Individuals across the country are winning million-dollar lawsuits against schools, teachers, government, police for illegal retaliation and coercion.)

Retaliation or coercion is the act of using official power or authority or resources to illegally “punish” residents. The causes of retaliation are no mystery and there are two key ingredients: power and accountability – too much power and not enough accountabilty.

The mechanism that seems to trigger retaliation is effective advocacy. Retaliation occurs in an environment where officials view any opinions differing from their own or any questioning of their power as an unwanted imposition or as a way to develop an alternative power base or community action. When school officials or public servants translate their responsibilities and duties to citizens, residents, children and families into unquestioned, absolute decision making power over them. The profile of such officials can take two forms: openly hostile or smoothly deceptive, the latter preferring passive aggressive resistance.

Hostile officials on the other hand use their position as an instrument of power to openly intimidate and even punish citizens, students, parents, even groups. (Without what is called due process, this is a violation of the provisions of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights!)

Most people never encounter retaliation because they are “sheeple,” people who unquestioningly and stupidly accept anything they get fed. Those who do experience retaliation and coercion however, are usually strong advocates for citizens’ rights, the betterment of the community (advocates for cleaning up politics, change), special disadvantaged or marginalized people without power such as the poor, the elderly, children. Regardless, retaliation does occur and the fear of retaliation inhibits many citizens. This gives school and government officials and the police wide latitude to become dictators, tyrants, to do what they damned well please.

Patterns of retaliation can be classified into three levels. Level I, the most frequent, is low-level passive activity, with the goal of delaying the process. Level II is more overt; the goal is to scare parents. Level III is the form of open hostility and the goal is to punish you. Level III retaliation is rare, but costly, dramatic, and damaging. After you read the descriptions below, you’ll probably have no doubts that you have been the victim of retaliation and coercion!

Level I – Delay. The goal at this level of retaliation is to reduce your effectiveness as citizens, residents, or as parents effectiveness by passive resistance, such as the introduction of delays and obstacles in the many processes involved in responding to problems or to complaints. There are numerous ways officials can achieve this result. One is simply playing dumb. This allows officials to effectively ignore the law and your rights under the law. Another is “forgetting” to do things. An official may repeatedly forget to follow-up on a commitment, such as getting back to parents with further information, or fail to schedule further meetings without several reminders. Being “away from the phone,” so often that parents give up on some important issue is also effective. Yet another technique is overly technical interpretations of laws and regulations. Level I does not appear hostile, but it can be extremely effective.

 Level II – Fear. Level II retaliation is not hidden. At this stage officials may appear to be openly frustrated and hostile. They will state that they won’t for example, allow you to have records or observe a process, or a class, or won’t permit certain kinds of activities. The list of “can’t do’s” is quite long. Most of it however, is bluff.

Level II retaliation is based on putting up a tough front in an effort to scare citizens or parents and reduce their advocacy. It is is all based on their expectation that you are ignorant of your rights and of the law. While it can be very effective, you can break through this barrier by learning more about the laws and regulations and simply insisting on compliance. Once past the obstacles, you will usually find that resistance is eliminated, because you will probably know more than they do (this is especially true when faced with ignorant village and town justices!).

Level III – Punishment. At this level, retaliation can get ugly, with officials or police openly threatening and actively trying to punish you. In this war-like situation, officials and police have a variety of weapons to choose from. One is the fair hearing (due process hearing) process. Government, and schools, too, (because YOU give them the money by accepting their budget!) have vast financial resources to transform hearings into major trial-like proceedings. Since there is no accountability to taxpayers for the large sums spent in such legal adventures, officials have free rein to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars (HamiltonCounty TN v. Zachary Deal is a case, where the school district spent at least 2.8 million dollars on attorneys’ fees to fight parents of a child with autism), and you have no say in it! You gave them a budget!

Aiding and abetting this practice is a network of attorneys who specialize in fighting citizens and parents. These attorneys are organized into a professional group which holds national conferences and training programs at the local level. School and government officials are invited to attend these conferences where they are tutored in the finer points of “aggressive action,” in the form of strategies to be used before a due process meeting or at the pre-hearing conference of a due process or fair hearing. There have been recent reports of a menacing new form of retaliation involving the fabrication of child abuse charges against the target parent. Such allegations can trigger an investigation by Child Protective Services which has police-like powers. Pending the outcome of their investigation, they may choose to remove children from the home. Level III is so serious that most people need an attorney to protect themselves.

Therefore, it’s extremely important to nip retaliation and coercion in the bud; to tell government, police, and schools they have their power and authority because YOU allow it…YOU give it to them and YOU can take it back.

But as you can see in the patterns of retaliation and coercion, the longer you let it go, the more difficult it is to get rid of. It’s like any disease: you neglect it and it’s going to kill you!

 Only YOU can put a stop to retaliation in the community. The Coeymans Police Department, certain members of the RCS CSD Board of Education, certain members of the RCS teachers association, and the village idiots that they recruit to do their dirty work are all agents of retaliation and coercion. Those people are interested in hanging on to their criminal power and will retaliate and coerce to keep that power. You know who they are and it’s time you stand up, speak up, and fight back. We’re providing you with the information and the tools to do just that! Fight Back! Take back your freedoms, your peace of mind, your lives!

Stop Being Pushed Around!

Here are some useful links:

And Remember….

A strong community represents the residents in the trenches and not the interests of the people in power”.

An administration that allows its members to be disrespected, is an administration that no longer deserves the respect of its residents.

When our educational leaders ignore input from the community, the programs they push are destined to fail.

Retaliation Is A CRIME! Let’s Go After the Criminals!

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

We’ve Been Hearing About and Receiving Information About an Unusually Large Number of Allegations of Retaliation in the RCS Community!

Not Any More, Sucka!

Because of the many allegations we’ve been informed of and the number of actual complaints provided, mostly against the RCS schools and teachers and especially against the Coeymanazis in the Coeymans Police Department, we’ve been making some inquiries and doing some research. We’d like to share what we’ve found with you.

First of all, many of you don’t know how to get  information or how to make a complaint. So, before we get started, we’d like to provide you with a Complaint Contacts List that you can use immediately. We’re also providing a model Freedom of Information Law (F.O.I.L.) letter that you can use to request information from public and government offices and departments about public employees, their activities or the activities of the government or public offices or departments, and much more. There’s a lot of information available to you but you have to ask for it, and you have to ask for it properly. We can help.

  • To View or Download the Contact Sheet for Complaints (government agencies for investigation of citizens complaints against government, police, judges, schools, teachers, etc.)
  • To View or Download the Model F.O.I.L. Letter Click FOIL Model.
  • To View of Download the Complaint Form for a Complaint Against a Judge click CJC Complaint Form.

Click here to go to Part II of Retaliation is a Crime: Part II. (This page provides information on how the law defines retaliation and some good reading links. When making a complaint, you have to properly define the grounds, so use the official definitions!)

Click here to go to Coeymans Rule: Lie! Part II. (This page is still under construction. We’re waiting for some official documents so that we can provide accurate information. We’ll post a Special Notice when it’s ready!)

Trailer Trash In A Double-Wide

Somehow It Seems Appropriate That the Coeymans Town Administration and Police Department Should be Housed in What Appears to Be A Converted Cargo Container or An Oversized Double-Wide Trailer

Town Of Coeymans
Town Hall

It’s also not surprising that search as I may, I just can’t find a photo or an image of the Coeymans Town Trailer? Can it be that it’s such a gem of the Hudson Valley, such an Objet d’Art that they need to keep it a secret?

Or is it, more accurately, because it’s such a den of corruption and iniquity that only those poor bastards unfortunate enough to have to appear there and be humiliated by the ignorant but arrogant town justices, an ex-cop and a former cafeteria manager, or abused by the hirelings of Coeyman’s police department chief Gregory Darlington and his troupe of  sadist pervert investigators and Albany PD rejects (McKenna and Johnson, included). I’d go for this latter option.

Moreover, it’s really unfair to even use the term “trailer trash” when discussing the town hall thugs. Trash they are but it’s doing a terrible injustice to those poor persons whom the elite disparagingly call “trailer trash.” There’s plenty of so-call “trailer trash” who would put the community élite to abject shame in terms of morality, virtues, values, and ethics. So, understand that I am using the term “trailer trash” in it’s most literal form, not in the manner that the hypocrites might use it to disparage persons less fortunate than themselves.

Now That I Have Your Undivided Attention…

That may at first blush sound pretty uncharitable and it probably is if you don’t think about it. But that’s the problem: You simply don’t THINK about things; more accurately, you don’t REFLECT on things, and you really ought to.

It’s only natural… that when someone comes and stirs up the scum in your pool you’re going to get pissed because the scum is stirred up, not because you were negligent and didn’t do what was necessary, the work, to keep it clean. Same thing for your community.

It’s only natural…that when you find that someone is pointing out your fat ass, and mentioning that it means trouble for your overall health that you become indignant at being called “fat,” and curse the person for the insult. But you know you’re fat and you know you eat unhealthfully and you know you don’t exercise enough but still, he called you “fat.” Same thing for your community, you know what’s wrong but you decide to live with it, deny it, work around it, and then you’re pissed because someone tells you something’s wrong and that you can fix it…if you care to.

It’s only natural… that you should all rise up and complain: “All teachers aren’t greedy!” Or “All teachers aren’t bullies, there are some very good ones.” You cry this out but you don’t also take into consideration that teachers, police, doctors, judges, men and women elected to public office are all in a special position in society; they want special respect but in return society holds them to a higher standard. Either they tow the mark or they go.

You want to wear crown? Well…

These privileged statuses also want to do their own dirty laundry, take care of their own. And so, when it becomes public that there are bad apples in the barrel, it becomes the task of the good apples to clean up the bad ones…or they can be included in the bad bushel, too. You want to wear the crown and wield the authority, enjoy the perks, do the dirty work guys and gals; clean up your litter boxes.

Find’em and Fix’em

It’s only natural….that because it was YOU who elected them to their privileged statuses that you will get pissed and want to kill the messenger when it becomes obvious that you or those to whom you have delegated your decision-making authority have put jerks in those power positions. But rather than kill the messenger, why don’t you bite the bullet and lay down the rules for the perps and pervs; you put them where they are and you can kick them out. Why do you let yourselves be silenced by those at the head table? Remind them that they are public servants, not tyrants!

Caught cookie-handed!

So you’ve been caught with your hand in the cookie jar?  It’s really humiliating for the crook to be found out and actually be called a crook. And it’s those types that get the angriest and the most vindictive when found out. Rather than ask forgiveness, seek reconciliation and change their ways (turn around), they retaliate. Same thing in the community: You call the crook a crook and he lashes out at everyone within reach. Low self-esteem is a very volatile condition and that’s what makes bullies, student bullies, street bullies, teacher bullies, cop bullies. But if the community were to have done its duty and if the community were to be a moral example and conduct its business ethically, Guess what!? Most of these uncomfortable situations could and would have been avoided.

Morality is a question of character; ethics is a question of what you do. If you are a liar or a cheat, that is immoral, it is a question of character: your character is who you are. Character doesn’t happen overnight, my friends, it starts as behavior that becomes habit that becomes character, the person. It is your character that governs what you do, when you do it, and why you do it. So, if your character that of a liar or a cheat, your ethics is that of lying and cheating. Your character is you; your ‘you’ doesn’t change unless you truly do something about it.

We can only hope that more Laszlo Polyaks, more Donna Pasquinis, more Ann Marie Vadneys, more Jerry Bogardis, more Pam Powells come forward and speak out like those citizen residents do on a consistent basis. Only then will this community be able to rid itself of the tyrany of the Jerry Delucas, the Gregory Darlingtons, the Donna Hommels, the McTigues, the Matt Millers, the Bartletts, the James Latters, the Josephine O’Connors. Only when the community spirited among you become the role models can you take back control of your lives, property, children; the fearful and anxious majority in this community must shake off the fear and anxiety and return to controlling your lives and your destinies.

Please don’t misunderstand what I am teaching here. I’m not calling for lynch mobs, for banning, exiling, or ostracizing anyone but what I am preaching is that some really tough love might be in order for you to forgive, not forget, and to reconcile or not to reconcile with those individuals who have blackened and darkened this community and kept you silent all these years. It’s time to call out the bullies and to discipline them; its time for fair play, justice and fairness. It’s time to put them outside the community and allow them back into the community only after their moral and ethical lesions have been cleansed and are no longer a threat of infection to the rest of us.

It’s time to teach–not just talk about–the lost values of honesty, integrity, charity, simplicity, respect, humility, and generosity, teach those values to the children you all claim to love and cherish; why then do you expose them to indoctrination, propaganda, and indecent role models? They’re your flesh and blood; you have to fill them with morality, good ethics, and love. Smiles covering fear and anxiety just won’t work; nor will convincing them that sacrifice is a bad thing. Teach them good judgment not simply judgment.

Do A Family Virtue Pick!

Listening and watching the videos of public meetings you hear trembling voices, high-pitched tension, you see downcast eyes, suspicious, defensive  body language. People these are not the signs of a happy hobbit community; these are signs you’d expect to see in a concentration camp! Look at yourselves!

When self-interest and self-preservation lock horns and complacency becomes the only coping strategy, there’s no compelling religious, spiritual, civic alternative–community evaporates and each one of you becomes an island with only the delusion of freedom in community.

We are going to give the RCS Central School District a bit of  a respite for the time being; we are going to give the community the opportunity to step up to the plate and to help itself, to file their complaints with the New York State Education Department, the Office of the Attorney General, and other authorities,  and give those authorities some time to show their colors and to do their jobs,  investigate, audit, discipline. There are fish to fry in the town hall and in the police department; we’ll busy ourselves with them in the next several weeks. Stay tuned!

Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog now.

This Post Published By So-called School “Teacher” Josephine O’Connor Is A Testimony To The Addled And Confused State Of Some Of The RCS CSD Teachers To Whom School Children Are Exposed On A Daily Basis.

THIS is FAT, Josephine! So Shut Up, Already!

This so-called “teacher’s” idea of a “teachable moment” is protesting her lack of self-esteem, her “weight problem” and “yelling the insult up and down” a “hot hallway full of people waiting for election results.” This is a real RCS role model at work!

If this is representative of the mental coherence and level of self-esteem of even one teacher in the cohort at RCS it is pitiful This post is being published only because Ms O’Connor actually invited it’s publication! [Editor’s Note: We avoided fixing any of the grammar or editing any of the content so that the reader can appreciate the contradictions, the confusion, the perverse irrationality of the post. We’d also ask you to note below those who are responding and to compare the names on the list of Pieter B. Coeymanazis on the PTO who feel that bullying children and local businesses are also “teaching moments.”]

Before you read O’Connor’s post and our comments, we would like to inform you that we have received information that Ms O’Connor is not entirely truthful in her posting; she is not a teacher in the RCS CSD or anywhere else (In her posting she states “Since I am a teacher…Where do you teach, Josephine?!?!)! In fact, she is not a teacher but the RCS BoE board member who arrived late (“Not in attendance at the start of the meeting… O’Connor, it turned out, would later make the meeting and turn the tide on a crucial vote….Just before nine p.m., board member Josephine O’Connor arrived and apologized for not being in attendance for the bulk of the meeting due to other obligations and asked that the board go into executive session so she could be brought up to speed on what had occurred.” See this link Daily Mail, April 26, 2012. O’Connor had the unenviable reputation for being absent or late for BoE meetings.) with some display to break the tie vote on the most recent exhorbitant RCS CSD 2012-13 school budget; furthermore, Ms O’Connor, as a sitting board member voted to give her husband, a teacher in the RCS district, tenure–an act that is somewhat questionable, ethically speaking, since her vote to give her husband tenure was tainted by personal gain and vested, conflicted  interest; ethically, she should have abstained from that vote O’Connor didn’t run in May 2012; apparently she was satisfied with the damage she had already done, and she got her husband tenure so why stay?

Now let’s move on to Ms O’Connor’s posting…we comment in green:

“I am so proud of everyone that worked so hard on the budget. You made a huge difference in people’s lives. [Editor’s Note: Yeah! Can’t wait to see the difference it makes!]

“On another note…

“I want to talk about what was said to me tonight while waiting for the results. A fellow board member asked me why I hadn’t called him back on the telephone. Frankly, after being verbally abused and berated at a board meeting, I don’t feel comfortable calling him. I only want to talk to him with others present because of how I have been treated in the past month. [Editor’s Note: Do you have the date of that BoE meeting? We’d like to review it in order to confirm your statements. You’ve lied already once in this posting.]

“So I replied that I wouldn’t be calling him, that emailing would suffice. [Editor’s Note: Now that’s mature; and real leadership behavior. It’s called avoidance and is a type of denial behavior; very common in the RCS district. Probably why nothing constructive gets done.]
He looked at me and said “it looks like you’ve put on some weight” and turned away.  [Editor’s Note: Any witnesses to the actual statement? That would lend some credibility to this report.] Now, if you think I’m posting this because the specific insult bothered me, you’d be wrong. [Editor’s Note: Really? Well that’s not what we get from the rest of your rant below.] Instead of being reduced to tears or standing shamefully [Editor’s Note: We hope you don’t teach English!]  in the corner, which is what I gather he expected me to do, I did something that I have never done before. [Editor’s Note: As an adult, we would hope not but you do something even more childish, immature, and absolutely SILLY!]

“In that hot hallway full of people waiting for election results, I raised my voice and said “hey everyone: Member of the Board X just said I look like I put on weight, anyone else want to chime in?” I yelled the insult up and down the hallway. I invited anyone who wanted to agree with his judgement of me to jump right in. Simply calling the insult on the carpet gave me a sense of liberation that was amazing. I did it because what was said to me shows what a kind of person that HE is, not me. [Editor’s Note: No, Ms O’Connor, you just made a DumbAss out of yourself, an histrionic spectacle, which is why this post was sent to us: You made yourself laughable with your clownlike display!]

“Since I’m a teacher, I just had to write this; it’s a teachable moment. [Editor’s Note: OMIGOD! She claims to be  an RCS teacher doing this! Am I really surprised? And this is what RCS calls a “teachable moment.” Puhleez! More like a lunatic moment!]

“To even think that I would be embarrassed by being called fat in 2012 is the joke here. [Editor’s Note: But you obviously did, on fair assessment of what you’re writing in this post!] I thought: “that’s all ya got?” My weight? I would laugh if it weren’t such a tragic commentary on the nature of misogyny, which is alive and well I might add. [Editor’s Note: But what about your own self-esteem problem? Even if there were “mysogyny,” wouldn’t a competent, mature adult, a teacher no less, come up with a better public statement than “yell[ing] the insult up and down the hallway”? Most of us would agree that there are more adult ways of expressing one’s self.]

“That’s right, a fellow board member couldn’t think of anything intelligent to say so he insulted my physical appearance. That’s all he had to try and hurt me with. [Editor’s Note: We don’t know you but are you overweight? Is that your own body image? It seems you have an unhealthy fixation on your physical appearance as representing your self or your essence to the detriment of any other qualities. is that so? Sounds like a really big problem, Josephine. How will you manage in a high school with all those slim divas around you?]

“To all of the little girls, young women, middle-aged women, old women who have been verbally pummeled and made to feel less-than for any reason: try yelling the insults from the rooftops. [Editor’s Note: No. Please don’t try that. It’s likely to get you arrested and comitted for psychiatric observation. Have more dignity and you’ll be taken more seriously. And Ms Josephine O’Connor, please don’t teach that sort of behavior to students, they have enough problems finding positive role models as it is!] Because those words have nothing to do with you and everything to do with the awful, twisted, weak-minded and hateful person spewing them. [Editor’s Note: Well, Josephine, that’s not the message you shared in this post! You seem to have thought it had a lot to do with YOU, and the fact you’re sharing it seems to reinforce that observation.] I hope that you find sense of exhilaration that comes from knowing that only your own opinion of yourself counts.” [Editor’s Note: That’s exactly the problem with society today: teachers encourage students not to live, work, and associate as members of community but to isolate themselves as being self-important. The very basics of ethics is missing in that statement! Josephine O’Connor, you are an endangerment to the youth of this community! You obviously never took an ethics course!]

Ms O’Connor concludes her post with the words, “Feel free to pass this along.” We have done that. Thank you, Josephine!

Of course, the usual Coeymanazis chimed in with their usual bovine mooing of chagrin and disgust: Cathy [Long] DeLuca (of all people! and with her history!), Sarah Berchtold Engel, and a couple of others commented, though not on the substance of the post from what we could read. But if you know any of the main commenters named above, you’d wonder why they would want to direct attention to themselves! Especially when weight is the subject!

This is no joke; Josephine O’Connor is a not a real-life teacher (she lied in her posting), but she really did post the message on FaceBook, on an account called “Save the Arts at RCS.”

Read a companion article on another crown dingleberry of the RCS CSD, Matt Miller, self-proclaimed atheist teacher and president of the teachers association (just a nice way of saying teachers union!) at Matt Miller: “I Seen The BLOGGER!!!!”
