Still Violence in the RCS Schools. WHY?

But it Does if you're a Student in the RCS Schools

But it Does if you’re a
Student in the RCS Schools

That’s an important point of investigation that is very likely to be made when the facts of a recent Notice of Claim come before the courts, and the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District has to cough up an explanation Why? after a history and a pattern of student-on-student violence, attacks, ambushes, even suicide attempts have been allowed to continue!

An outraged parent recently served a complex Notice of Claim on the RCS-CSD asking just those questions and demanding, among other things, answers. Seems that a school district with a budget consistently larger than that of local municipalities combined and the biggest employer of morons in the area should be able to come up with the right answers. But looking at what we have to deal with in terms of teachers (if Martin Case or Matthew Miller or Brian Bailey are to be taken as examples) or support staff (like Rocco Persico, a school psychologist on the RCS payroll) or even principals like Pam Black or  Brian Bailey, well-liked (Why? Because he’s a dolt! A wingnut! That’s why he was made assistant superintendent for curriculum: to get the dolt, the wingnut out of the school! Wake up!), the causes are obvious.

Before the most recent board of education elections when the board was literally drowned with new teachers-clique members by re-electing of all people James Latter (known best for his abuses and breaches of confidentiality), Peter Brown of the Mary Partridge-Brown/Matthew Miller odd-couple (Now it appears it’s a threesome. Patrick E. Brown, of Brown & Weinraub, an Albany law firm, Mary Miller’s — Oops! Brown’s — husband, was elected but we know all too well who’s really on the RCS board of education: Matthew Miller, double-dipping teacher and teachers union rep), and newbie Jason Hyslop, a space-occupying lesion on the board, similar to a Edward “Teddy” Reville (drowsy-dog; and his name is not “Teddy”). So out of 9 seats on the school board, 6 are now occupied by teachers or member married to a teacher, or teacher tools (Brown & Hyslop). Can you tell where this board is heading? Does Latter’s wife or Miller’s wife get the principal’s position they’ve been hankering for but never got because they’re incompetent?

Well, back to the Notice of Claim… (Click here to read it in it’s entirety: Polyak Notice of Claim polyak_redacted; see also Village of Ravena, Town of Coeymans Police Department Served with Notices of Claim).

For six years Mr John Vadney and his colleagues on the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District board of education fought against the teachers clique on that school board to redirect attention from the administrators’ and teachers’ pockets to student safety and education.  While the teachers clique had the majority on the board under the closet guidance of the teachers union, New York State Teachers United (NYSUT) and its local representative, Matthew J. Miller, a high-school science teacher, who at the time was double-dipping to the tune of $18,000 a year from the school budget and on a reduced teaching load (and still is) so that he could (and still can) do his union work on the school budget tab, members James Latter, Alice Whalen, Howard Engel, and previously Gerald Deluca and Cathy Deluca (subsequently voted off the board) saw to it that the teachers and administrators were well taken care of while graduation rates in the RCS high-school plummeted and school violence thrived.

Once the non-teachers were voted into the majority, positive things started to happen in the RCS school district and Mr John Vadney and his team were able to make considerable progress in getting rid of the incompetent local teachers’ choice superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith and hiring Dr Allen R. McCartney to come in and clean things up. Matthew Miller and the teachers clique vehemently opposed McCartney’s hire but were overruled by those with the best interests of the district, Vadney, Robbins, Sylvester, Krzykowsky, and Lukens.

Total lies; total business as usual for the teachers union and the teachers clique.

dirty little lies

The teachers clique and their moles on the Coeymans police department (Gregory Darlington, Kerry Thompson (Darlington’s brother-in-law, and Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca) attempted everything to discredit the non-teachers on the board of education from framing the then board president, John Vadney, to intimidating Jeff Lukens when he came to his son’s defense (as any father would do), to libeling and slandering Rodney Krzykowski for exercising his civil rights, to even inciting bullyism or retaliation on the children of board members. Readers will certainly recall how one student thug ambushed and injured Mr Vadney’s son as he entered the high-school—but that was kept neatly under wraps and, when Vadney’s wife filed a Notice of Claim for the incident, the “Friends of RCS” the teachers clique electioneering arm, the Delucas, Mary Partridge-Brown (wife of lawyer Patrick Brown, now a RCS board of education member) spread the misinformation that Vadney was suing the school district. Total lies; total business as usual for the teachers union and the teachers clique. For the “Fiends of RCS” if it’s illegal or immoral or unethical, it’s OK. And they were elected to the majority on the board of education and promptly took full credit for all the good that Vadney, Sylvester, Robbins, Krzykowski, and Lukens were able to get jump started—such as improving the graduation rates and getting school safety underway, complying with state mandates for anti-bullying programs and training, etc., financial responsibility, accountability, and transparency — all opposed by the teachers clique, James Latter, Alice Whalen, Howard Engel, Edward “TeddyReville, on the board and now joined by Patrick Brown (that is, Matthew Miller and NYSUT) and James Hyslop!

prevent child abuseThe Vadney board was student-centered, not teacher-centered as it is now. The Vadney board focused on keeping students on track, and above all, safe! But the teachers clique, getting more and more defensive and desperate as time went on, unanimously opposed anything the non-teachers proposed, And it’s not as if no one ever heard of the bullying in the RCS schools or of the Dignity Act passed by the NYS legislature in order to make school personnel accountable and responsible for preventing bullying. Anyone with two eyes to see with and two ears to hear with couldn’t possibly have avoided the regular pleas of Mr Laszlo POLYAK at almost every RCS board of education meeting pleading with the superintendent, the teachers, the administrators to do something about the violence in the schools. Mr Polyak was a regular speaker addressing the superintendent and the board asking when they were going to comply with the requirements of the Dignity Act (principals and school administrators were dragging their feet when required to start-up training programs and enforcement of the Act in the RCS schools).

And then Mr Polyak’s own daughter is brutalized during a recess period while supposedly under the supervision of an aid. And she was attacked and injured by a well-known offender who was known to have done the very same thing a number of times in the past!

So, readers, when gentle, then in-your-face New-York-style persuasion doesn’t work and you’re ignored, your child is injured, it’s time to take some serious in-your-face New-York-style legal steps. And that’s what Mr Polyak was forced to do when he filed his Notice of Claim. The violence in our schools must stop and if it takes a $10 million lawsuit to do it, What the hey! Go for it if it’s the only think this school district understands (besides its $10 million the teachers union and the crooks in the school system won’t get their dirty hands on!)

The Vadney Board made it happen and got the wheels rolling but the Vadney board didn’t have enforcement powers in the schools, the administrators, teachers and principals had that. Nor did the board have police power or the authority to compel the local police, the Coeymans Police Department, to do their job and get proactive in terms of prevention of the violence and enforcing or collaborating (with what?) in compliance with the Dignity Act! If the RCS schools were non-compliant, slow to implement the procedures, indifferent to the violence, the Coeymans Police were just as guilty. Some of the duties of the town of Coeymans Police chief Gregory Darlington, according to his job description, are:

  • Administers and directs the operation of the police department;
  • Recommends organizational changes to the Town Board and directs necessary procedural changes;
  • Keeps Town Board abreast of major developments in law enforcement that affect department activities;
  • Represents the department at conferences and meetings;
  • Thorough knowledge of New York State Penal Law, Criminal Procedure Law, Vehicle and Traffic Law and all local laws and ordinances, regulations pertaining to police work.

Now we don’t think it’s stretching it when we ask: When the Coeymans Police Department has to respond to student-on-student violence, kids with guns in the trunk of their cars in the school parking lot, suicide attempts on school property, known bullying, coaches’ abuse of athletes and parents, violations of FERPA confidentiality (right James Latter?), reports of kids being denied boarding school buses and having to walk along Route 9W to get home, etc. wouldn’t you think the police chief would wake up and smell the coffee—the blood? Wouldn’t you think that the police chief would take the initiative and get proactive with acknowledging the problem? Wouldn’t you think the police chief would reach out to the board of education, to the school district with a plan? Wouldn’t you think the police chief would make an appearance at school board meetings to reassure the public that the problem is a priority for the local police? Maybe. But not in the Coeymans Police Department and not with police chief Gregory “DoDo cop” Darlington. And not with Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca lurking and, together with teacher/union rep Matthew “Matt-the-Mutt” Miller,  harassing local women at BoE meetings.

DUH! Wadda I do? The Coeymans PD's Response

DUH! Wadda I do?
The Coeymans PD’s Response

So the Coeymans Police Department is included in the recent Notice of Claim and rightly so.  If the Coeymans Police Department would act more like a community public service  organization rather than a Gestapo police state band of thugs hell-bent on retaliation, intimidation, and violation of protected civil rights, maybe the Coeymans Police Department and its police chief could avoid being named in lawsuits. Nah! That would require a Coeymans Town Board that did its job, that is, supervise the Coeymans Police Department and it’s police chief, Gregory Darlington, and do some disciplining where needed. But then, if the Town Board started coming down on the Coeymans Police Department, the board members and their families wouldn’t get special consideration and treatment, the felonies and misdemeanors wouldn’t disappear, would they?

 So what’s the deal Coeymans town supervisor Stephen Flach, board members Peter Masti, Thomas Boehm, Thomas Dolan, Dawn Rogers? When are you going to start doing your jobs and ensuring the Coeymans Police Department and its wimpy chief, Gregory Darlington, are doing their jobs, or else?

Mayor John Bruno and councilwoman Nancy Warner are too busy harassing the Teen Center and bitching about kids congregating around the Pulver Street gazebo

dirty tricksAnd then there’s the village of Ravena. The RCS middle and high school are in the jurisdiction of the village of Ravena, aren’t they? So what’s mayor John Bruno and village of Ravena councilpersons Nancy Warner, Martin Case (himself a teacher at the high school!), Rocco Persico (a school psychologist at the high school!) or William Bailey doing while all of this is going on? ANSWER: Not a damned thing! CORRECTION: They’re too busy whining about their water treatment and sewer bills from the town of Coeymans. Mayor John Bruno and councilwoman Nancy Warner are too busy harassing the Teen Center and bitching about kids congregating around the Pulver Street gazebo; they’re too busy cruising the gazebo at weird hours of the nite and getting the Coeymans police in a feeding frenzy over the “No Loitering” law (the subject of another Notice of Claim because the law is unconstitutional and unenforceable!). That’s the extent of the village of Ravena’s response to the violence!

See the recent article (click on the link):  Village of Ravena, Town of Coeymans Police Department Served with Notices of Claim.

More parents should take control and follow Mr Polyak’s lead

 We have already provided a link to the complete Notice of Claim served on the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District and the Coeymans Police Department. If you’re interested in reading it, just click on the link above. We’ve redacted the minor student’s name from the NoC but it’s in all other respects complete as filed. More parents should take control and follow Mr Polyak’s lead. Maybe then the RCS CSD, the town of Coeymans, the Coeymans Police Department, and the village of Ravena will take these important matters more seriously.

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:



“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:

Clinically Speaking…

When I originally started this blog, I intended to cover a much wider area and range of topics. It seems, though, that in Ravena-Coeymans, I can find all the material I need. I don’t really know if that is a compliment or not. 

Ever try working together?

I may have written that I have no interest in what is playing out in the RCS Board of Education meetings and that might have been a bit of a fib. Once I established that there was a problem, and a problem there is, I began reviewing the videos that are published on the Internet, and I have found them to be a rich source of clinical material, indeed.

A couple of weeks ago I presented a presentation on crisis intervention and conflict management to a group of graduate students at a local college, and one of the topics in my lecture was the emotional element involved in conflict, specifically the unconscious emotional contagion that can occur. As I watch, study, and analyze the speakers in the videos, I sure wish I had known of them when I was preparing my lecture. They are must-see’s for a clinical course in crisis intervention and conflict management.

You see, the speakers are in crisis and there is a major conflict that needs managing or it’s going to tear you all apart. But do you realize it? I wonder.

Problem is, most people in conflict enter into a phase called “simplification” where the issues are either too unwieldy or there are too many issues, so you simplify things down to what you can handle. It’s natural but not very helpful. Simplification is followed by polarization, where, in order to more easily pigeon-hole things, you turn the issues into black and white, good and bad, right and wrong. That requires minimal mind work and you don’t have to get involved with details. That, too, is natural but not very helpful.

What I also see in those videos is a bunch of people who are emotionally flooded and have lost control of themselves, the issues, and the conflict; they’re spinning their wheels down to the axles.


I observed one woman who speaks at almost every meeting, always choked up, always befuddled, always with a neurotic squeal and breathlessness to her voice; we’ll call her Ms H. At the March 27 meeting she opens her remarks with, “I’ll try not to cry this time.” Well, you try hard, honey.  Thank you! Ms H. No emotional histrionics? Would the spectators find that boring? I think Ms H. welcomes the attention, needs it in some sociopathic way.  Ms H., the choked up and weeping performance means only that you are unsure of your intellectual presentation so you need to move people with something more primitive. What you got? Emotion. No-brainer! But not very helpful.

Scared and Lonely

What about the guy, we’ll call him Mr J., again at the March 27 meeting. His bag was:  ‘Look at me! I’m a patriot!’ “I’m going to Afghanistan.” (We understand he’s Nat’l Guard and clerical, not combat.) Again, he’s not appealing to issues, he’s parading himself, probalby hoping it will give him credibility, authenticity. Maybe. But he would have been more convincing if self-control were part of the preformance. This became even more obvious when he spent a good deal of his 3 minute slot to chiding someone on the board for…NOT MAKING EYE CONTACT! Do you think you’re that pretty or interesting Mr J? One wonders if Mr J. were in love or something. But that revealed a lot about Mr J’s need for attention and recognition. I don’t believe that Mr J’s self-esteem issues were before the board that evening.

 The main performers of the evening–they appear to be regular features in many of the videos–were Ms Amy Bartlett and Mr Gerald “Jerry” Deluca, who were joined with  the cameo  guest performance by Ms Cathy Deluca. (Hear the fanfare? NOT!)

There’s definitely a good deal of narcissism going on in these perps, to be sure.

This is how you come across. Really!

 These performances are regularly characterized by toxic aggression in the form of unbridled criticism, insult, accusation, and brimming with Guess what? Emotional flooding!
As I have said, the videos are classic material for a clinical colloquium on conflict, but regardless of whether the performances are clinically interesting, they are being played out in a public forum and that is dangerous, indeed. For all the notoriety the performers are deriving from their public self-pleasuring, they are infecting others with their irrationality. I mentioned emotional contagion and that’s what’s happening: these irresponsible braggards are infecting others with their negative contagion. This happens, really, and it’s happening almost every time Ms. H., Ms Bartlett and Mr Deluca take the floor–and you don’t even know it’s happening because it’s happening in your unconscious minds.

Not very pretty, but it's you!

There’s also a phenomenon known as triangling. This happens when two parties are in conflict and one of the parties involves a third party. A two-party system, like Deluca and a boardmember, is unstable because it tolerates little tension before involving a third person. But a three-party system, a triangle can contain much more tension without involving yet another party because the tension can shift around three relationships. If the tension is too high for one triangle to contain, it spreads to a series of “interlocking” triangles. Spreading the tension can stabilize a system, but nothing gets resolved. That’s what I see happening.

People’s actions in a triangle reflect their efforts to ensure their emotional attachments to important others, their reactions take on too much intensity in those attachments, and the result is their taking sides in the conflicts of others. This complicates the conflict enormously. That’s exactly what’s happening in your meetings but none of you seem to care. That’s why I’m departing somewhat from my satirizing or parodying you to trying to help you with a different approach.

Actually, if I genuinely thought you wanted to resolve your conflicts or reframe your issues, I’d offer to sit down with you and mediate or intervene, but from what I can see, a couple of you are really thriving on destructiveness and would probably reject any attempt to transform your destructiveness to constructive or functional conflict. That’s really too bad, because in most systems functional or constructive conflict has a great number of positive outcomes, and serves very effectively in problem solving.

Patience is the Companion of Wisdom

But on a positive note: I am amazed at the boardmember’s patience and fortitude in the face of your aggressions, and I have to commend them all for their patience, dignity, and courtesy to you when you probably should be banned from speaking. It takes a lot of self-control to be able to say Thank you! after being unceremoneously abused by the very people you are giving up time and resources to help.

As I frequently tell clients, “It takes two to make a marriage but only one to destroy it.” It’s obvious to me that some of you are trying your damnedest to break up the party.

I’ll continue monitoring your cases and reporting back. In the meantime, thanks for the material.

Angry!? Disgusted!? You have some nerve!

A reader raised my curiosity, so I reviewed the RCS BoE video of the April 3, 2012, session, and was amazed at the arrogance of two of the speakers, two whose conduct has been addressed on this blog.

Don't Swallow Your Pride! You'll choke on it.

You’ve commented publicly; We are exercising that same right.

But this has really nothing to do with the RCS BoE, so don’t get the impression I have any interest whatsoever in its members or its operation. I don’t. And as for the players, I don’t know them, I have little or no interest in them except for what they represent, and if some of them were on fire on Main Street, I probably wouldn’t pee on them to put it out. So don’t let your imaginations get the best of you. This is solely about principles.

That having been said, I am amazed at the speakers who expressed indignity at having been the subject of questions on this blog but never once responded to the questions, or left a comment or an explanation, or even claimed that the allegations are untrue! It’s much easier to respond to these posts here than it is for a victim to respond in the Times Union.

Ladies and gentlemen. (Ms Bartlett and Mr Deluca, too) this is the forum where this is playing out. Here. Right here. Nowhere else. We’re at a loss why it’s being paraded at, of all places, a school board meeting! That’s inappropriate, idiotic! And you should be ashamed and embarrassed for your displays there. I know I was and I wasn’t even there!

It seems one of Bartlett’s and Deluca’s  main concerns is not their conduct but the fact that they don’t know who is posting the questions. They’re not protesting the truth or falsity of  the allegations, nor have they responded to them; they’re interested only in the fact that they don’t know where they’re coming from. The reason, if we may guess: They need a physical person to attack–hence their continuing personal attacks on the persons on the school board; they can’t cope with dealing with abstracts and concepts like morality, ethics, principles. (You’d think a “properly trained” and “qualified” lector in the Roman Catholic Church would be able to do so; does he even have a clue what metanoia means? Ask Fr Kane.)

Ms Bartlett, Mr Deluca: Truth doesn’t need a name or a face.

Contrary to what you might think or say, when you put yourself in the public’s face you become a public figure, and you should be held to a higher standard than most but you’re not even meeting the minimum; your morals and values DO count and we DO notice! No matter what you might say in your scripted remarks, your morals and ethics speak louder, especially when you are a public figure. But public figures do have rights, too. If you’re elected you are accountable for your actions on behalf of the public and, yes, you do have to answer for and to them. But everyone, EVERYONE, has a right to his or her own beliefs and political affiliation–as long as it’s not harming others. When you intrude into that unpublic sphere, you are trespassing. We have enough recent examples of such trespassing in our government’s recent antics. Learn from it.

And when your own example, the example of your conduct, morally, ethically, socially is substandard, unacceptable, we would caution you to think twice and very seriously about “fighting for what’s right” –your sense of ‘right’ might be grossly perverse–and proselytizing about “our children’s education” –the education you are providing by example may not be the best.

Rather than go into the numerous contradictions in the scripted remarks that the two addressed to the Board in a public meeting, we’d like to say that everyone reading this blog has the opportunity to comment on the posts. In fact, we actually request anyone who finds the information incorrect or misleading to let us know so that we can either further check the facts or make corrections. Mr and Ms Bartlett and Mr or Ms Deluca have refused to do so. 

In law there is a concept: Qui tacet consentire videtur

(One who remains silent admits)

The speakers may or may not have read the posts on this blog but they do continue to chant their tired and boring refrains. So for their benefit, we are including the links to the relevant postings on this blog. The first one of interest and one with which you should be familiar is Coeymans, New York: A Nest of Hypocrisy, and the other is The Times Union Newspaper: Print Bullyism. Visit those posts, read or re-read them as appropriate. Think about what’s being said and examine your consciences.

Print bullyism and the comments in public media such as the Times Useless speak for themselves. Little or nothing in the concerned article had anything to do with the board of education; but a couple of big- mouths made it their business to make certain the world knew their opinions, while they and the idiot reporter exposed personal details and irrelevant connections with no good purpose. And what recourse did the victim have? Yes! The victim. Predators!

If we had no sense of dignity or ethics we would put in print here what we think of your tactics and tell you in the clearest of terms where you could stick them. But you manage to continue to embarrass yourselves by stepping back into the spotlight, so hungry and starving to be noticed, the predators-turned-victim. You save us the trouble of embarrassing you; you do it yourselves. Give us a break and take one.

No! Mr Deluca and Ms Bartlett, you are flat wrong!  The people of the RCS community are not intimidated by a blog, they are intimidated by neighbors and predators who may live just down the street or in the community. They are intimidated and scandalously misled by unscrupulous and scurilous reporters and editors who have no ethics. They are intimidated by ignorant, incompetent, and disrespectful  judges and officials; the are intimidated by corrupt police and law enforcement; they’re indimidated by a system of incomprehensible laws, fictional justice, and greedy lawyers. And they are intimidated by a gaggle of destructive, angry, self-loathing destructive lemmings that waste pubic time with their nonproductive whining!  They are intimidated and fearful of speaking out because they live in a mini police state called Ravena-Coeymans, populated by a handful of Gestapo, Gestapo who are not beneath retaliation and ambush, reading Scripture now and shooting you down minutes later (Good church-going Christians that you are), and what harm and damage those Gestapo can do when given a podium. You’ve already proved that.

Talk about fighting for what’s right; talk about community! Cannibals!

Amy Bartlett herself mentions her remarks at the March 27, 2012, session. I reviewed that tape and was flabbergasted at Bartlett’s vitriolic and threatening accusatory public remarks; Next came “Cathy” Deluca, still persisting in obstructing democratic process and stutteringly demanding the removal of a board member for no good cause–except for the no-good cause she and her minions advocate and pursue with a vengeance. It’s an egregious embarrassment. I have never heard such nastiness from locals! Such self-loathing, anger…You’ll have to see and hear it to believe it. View the streaming video of March 27, 2012.

So, you don’t want to be noticed? You don’t like it when the shoe is on the other foot? The solution is simple: Shut up! Leave others alone. Stop trying to destroy and try to be constructive. Because if you think you’re “disgusted” and “angry,” you obviously  have no clue how the rest of the community feels.

Finally, one of you in your overall  insulting diatribes to the board mentioned “board members” with poor commands of English. Well, let me remind you that plenty of hard-working individuals with poor English were instrumental in building this country, its infrastructure, its bridges, dams, neighborhoods, economy, and plenty of individuals with poor English are continuing to do so–what’s more, they have higher standards of morality and ethics, and values than many of the loudmouths I’ve been hearing lately. If the shoe fits, please wear it.

P.s. To the 8th grade school teacher having difficulty explaining to her children what is going on re: the Times Useless article: If you find it that difficult to explain to your children what’s going on, I wonder what you’re doing teaching 8th grade! Or teaching at all! Try telling them the truth…give them a lesson in life 101.

Truth stands steadfastly on its own; it’s bright and beautiful, and  has no need of a name; Pride and arrogance is an ugly troll that needs to have its name on every lip saying how pretty it is.

Share a link to this blog or e-mail it to a friend! They’ll be grateful for it.

Brain Size and What It Tells Us

I’ve been reviewing some of the RCS Board of Education video recordings and  have attempted to make sense out of what Mr David Bartlett and some of the other witchhunters are driving at in their questions of a board member’s ability to uphold the provisions of the United States Constitution. Really.

Several questions arise:

Are Mr Bartlett and his supporters questioning the boardmember’s citizenship? If so, then attorney May’s response at the January 24 meeting is on target. That also raises the question of whether Mr Bartlett and his cronies would exclude from the board any person who is not a US citizen. This would, of course, include any individual in good-standing not yet having taken the citizenship oath: a foreign business person, a green cardholder, someone waiting to take the citizenship oath. That’s a very interesting suggestion, Mr Bartlett, and it would be very interesting to hear your response. If a non-citizen Canadian businessperson offered a $200,000 no-strings-attached gift to the school district, Bartlett would probably send it back because the donor is not a citizen. Go bloody figure!

The targeted boardmember is accused by his detractors of “not paying his taxes.” I would guess that most of the detractors are pig-ignorant of the actual circumstances of the case. Right? I would further guess that the majority of the detractors are pig-ignorant of the tax codes. Right? So why are these pig-ignorants opening their pie holes anyway? Every citizen and non-citizen working in the United States can contest and then appeal any provision of the tax code, including whether or not he or she is liable for a given tax. Wake up and shut up until you know what you’re talking about! The targeted boardmember is fully within his rights!

Some of the detractors have questioned why the boardmember won’t speak up. Again, shut up until you know what you’re talking about. Any statement made publicly by the boardmember relating to an issue in controversy can and probably would be refashioned and distorted and held against him. The only prudent and cautious thing to do is not to comment. Only a fool would risk satisfying the pig-ignorant with a public statement and then risk his entire standing and case. Wake up or shut up!

But what really irks me is when I hear people like David Bartlett and his ilk making comments in pulbic meetings and in the comments on some of the newspaper blogs that are so general it would take weeks to first figure out what Bartlett is asking specifically–Does he even know or is he just being a nuisance?–and once figured out, to even attempt answering the question, that is, if the question is even relevant. (Which at this point it is not!)

Mr Bartlett is specifically attacking the boardmember by referring to the boardmember’s pending tax case and the boardmember’s competence to uphold the Constitution based on what I think I hear to be (1) the pending tax case and/or (2) the boardmember’s secured party creditor status and his claim of natural sovereignty. (If you or any of your minions, Mr Bartlett,  have any questions on natural sovereignty I would refer you to John Locke and Emanuel Kant!)

The pending tax case is as normal as vanilla ice cream and is no business of the board or you, Mr Bartlett, or your co-conspirators. Period.

The fact that the board member disagrees, strongly or otherwise, with a provision of the United States Constitution is also irrelevant, as it does not affect in any way whatsoever the boardmember’s fitness or competence to serve efficaciously on the Board of Education in whatever capacity the Board deems appropriate. In a democracy, Mr Bartlett, you voluntarily  delegate some of your decision power to the officials duely elected by the majority (Or did you forget that in your minority standing?). Wake up or shut up!

If Mr Bartlett and/or his cronies were to continue the overly broad and vague accusations, they would only further add to their appearance of pig-ignorance, since they make no impression that they have any idea of what they are in fact accusing the boardmember of that obviates his competence! Neither Bartlett nor any of his chorus of sharks has stated specifically which part of the US Constitution he alleges the boardmember to be incapable of upholding. Or is it the entire US Constitution, which is idiotic even to suggest.

The Sixteenth Amendment (Amendment XVI) to the United States Constitution allows the Congress to levy an income tax without apportioning it among the states or basing it on Census results. Initially, the legislatures of the following states rejected the amendment without ever subsequently ratifying it: Connecticut, Rhode Island, Utah. Virginia.Furthermore, the legislatures of the following states never considered the proposed amendment: Florida, Pennsylvania.

While today individuals and businesses in all 50 states pay federal income tax, residents in 41 states also pay state income tax. Nine states have no state income tax: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington and Wyoming. The states of New Hampshire and Tennessee tax their residents only on income earned through interest and dividends.

But check this out:
Number of Americans Paying Zero Federal Income Tax Grows to 43.4 Million  And that was during 2006. At that time Tax Foundation economists estimates that roughly 43.4 million tax returns, representing 91 million individuals, will face a zero or negative tax liability. That’s out of a total of 136 million federal tax returns that will be filed. Adding to this figure the 15 million households and individuals who file no tax return at all, roughly 121 million Americans—or 41 percent of the U.S. population—will be completely outside the federal income tax system in 2006. Were you aware of that Mr Bartlett & Co?

It gets even better:

Most Companies Pay No Federal Income Tax  Two-thirds of U.S. corporations paid no federal income taxes between 1998 and 2005, according to a new report from Congress. That number has grown since then and we all know the local example of GE who pays NO TAX. Want to talk about the notorious 1%, the Bloombergs, Gates, and Zuckerbergs of the American “classless society?” What are you preaching about them, Mr Bartlett? Wake up or shut up!

Now, back to the Constitution: Abortion as we all know is murder and a crime against the unborn; a movement of the Culture of Death. But it’s been made legal under the United States Constitution under the due process provision of the 14th Amendment. So, Mr Bartlett, according to you any right-to-lifer would be barred from serving on the Board of Education because s/he does not support the Constitution.

Another example: Ownership of automatic weapons, assault weapons. Accoding to Bartlettian logic, anyone who advocates gun control or the ban on automatic or assault weapons cannot defend the Constitution because s/he opposes the 2nd Amendment. By that reasoning, therefore, if someone quite capable and valuable wants to serve on the BoE but opposes the 2nd Amendment right to own automatic or assault weapons s/he is ipso facto and de facto, even de jure  barred from serving. Right?

What about the religion provisions of the First Amendment? If I am following your logic, Mr Bartlett, according to you and your friends, only atheists would be eligible to serve. Right?

So, here’s a little exercise for you: Can you identify the most accurate depiction of your brain in the the image series below ? 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Next Part of the Test: What do you feel when you look at this picture?

Porking the Goose That Lays the Golden Egg.

Porking the Goose That Lays the Golden Egg. Stifling Diversity.

One more to go. Now be patient:

Does this picture accurately depict the evolutionary path taken by the Constitutional wizards attacking the boardmember?

Danger! Keep away from geese!

Thank you for your participation!

You’re now officially a Constitution Defiler.

Why not just burn it, Bartlett?
