Elections-2014
Making Moral Decisions in Accordance with Reason and Good Conscience


Christianity, in line with most religions of reason and divine law, teaches us that “by reason of their special vocation it belongs to everyone to seek the Kingdom of God by engaging in temporal affairs and directing them according to God’s will.” We participate in the affairs of government in a special way as to illuminate and order all temporal things with which we are closely associated, so that they may be always affected according the will of God and the glory of the Creator.

With those words, we’d like to bring our readers to the serious matter of the looming critical mid-term elections on Tuesday, November 4th. Now is a good time to remind our readers to remind family, friends and neighbors of our important duty as Americans, as Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, whatever, but all as members of the “American family” to participate in playing our roles in the governance of our troubled country by voting according to our consciences. Faced with these conscious moral choices we can make either a right decision in accordance with reason, and the divine law, or on the other hand, we can make an erroneous judgment that departs from all reason and from divine law. Which will you likely do?


Anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear will see through the half-truths of the messages we hear…

It’s an unfortunate truth, dear readers, that our county no longer is a participative democracy and no longer a multi-party system. Our major political parties, the Democrap and Republican parties, have sunken to abysmal lows in their decadence, depravity, and dishonesty. Anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear will see through the half-truths of the messages we hear over and over again from both parties’ candidates. Are the candidates, their parties, their campaign managers wilfully trying to confuse us? Are they that unscrupulous? Is that all we’ve become to them, nothing less than sheeple?

We have been disgusted on an almost daily basis by the political ads from an absurdly immature and hypocritical ultraliberal, Sean Eldridge. His campaign ads have simply been so childish and inordinately vile that they have to cast him in a very negative light if you really see and hear the message. Eldridge is an arch-hypocrite and worse still, he’s so obvious but he still continues trying to put on a fake face of sincerity while lying through his cosmeticized whitened teeth. When he’s not trying to give his man-wife Chris Hughes one up the chute, he’s planning to give us a good one. Say NO WAY! on ELECTION DAY! and send Sean Eldridge back to his gay gala with Cecilia Tkaczyk (pronounced “cat-shik“) and same-sex hubby Chris Hughes.

We don’t need another democrap pervert in Washington.

Eldridge has pissed all over everything traditional, everything sacred, everything valuable but wants voters to believe he’s the girl/boy next door. Nothing could be farther from the truth, dear readers. He’s as phoney as the white of his teeth! One of Eldridge’s most glaring hypocricies is his mantra: “I want to bring the Internet to rural areas.” Well, that shouldn’t surprise any of us, after all he’s in a same-sex marriage with none other than Chris Hughes, the Facebook mogul. Sure Eldridge wants to put the Internet in everyone’s home so that he and his same-sex hubby can make their millions by putting the depravity of asocial media under more noses. Don’t we have enough of these anti-family, anti-community bastards already? No thanks, Mr Eldridge, get a real job — maybe your same-sex hubby Chris Hughes will give you a cushy job with Facebook — but we have enough perverts in government, we don’t need another democrap pervert in Washington.

Eldridge himself, in an interview with ultra-liberal Jew, Alan Chartok, admits that he, Eldridge, has pretty much financed his own campaign, saying that he’s matched his actual outside fundraising. That means that Eldridge can afford to buy his own election—and is buying his way through his campaign—, almost literally saying he doesn’t have to depend on the people for support, while at the same time he’s criticizing Chris Gibson for getting his financial support from a vast network of private and business supporters. So, now do you think Sean Eldridge has any idea what the 99% need or how they feel? Eldridge operates from the penthouse of the ivory tower! He has no idea nor does he care about us. (You can hear the bullshit interview on WAMC with Alan Chartok at: Eldridge bullshits Chartok.)

Tkaczyk is dead in the water; a political suicide.

As for Eldridge‘s and his same-sex hubby Hughes favorite fag-hag Cecilia Tkaczyk she’s shown her colors for the past two years. Her loyalties are NOT with US, people. Tkazcyk‘s with New York City and where the big bucks are. She may have appeared a bit more defensible if she weren’t so very close to Eldridge and Hughes — so close as to deserve the name “fag hag” — just look at the three hypocrites together at a major gay, lesibian, bisexual, transgender gala earlier this year (photo below). Need we say more? (Please see our recent article: Sean Eldridge: Does he even know how to represent the 99%?) Tkaczyk actually appeared on the ultraliberal Jew’s (again Alan Chartok) WAMC to interview. What a disaster, she completely lost control to Chartok, who interrupted her, led her by the nose, cornered her into mouthing what he wanted her to say. Is that the kind of representation we are looking for in a state senator? She can’t even take control of a radio interview! But she can cow to a silver-spoon girly-boy and his same-sex hubby! In our real world, Tkaczyk is dead in the water; a political suicide.

The Democrap Offering
The ‘Pink Obama” Sean Eldridge with his hubby Chris Hughes and New York state Senator Cecilia Tkaczyk

New Baltimore democraps haven’t even been able to cough up a token opponent!

Barbara Finke, Appointed Interim Town Clerk, Running Unopposed, North Korea Style!

Why even cast a vote for her; if no one votes for her and if only she votes for herself, that 1 vote counts as 100% of votes—a landslide victory! New Baltimore voters, don’t even bother voting for Barbara Finke; don’t even give her numbers! You don’t have to vote for her if she’s unopposed. Let’s see just how many votes she gets if you protest North Korean-type elections in New Baltimore!

In fact, the democraps even at the local level have become irrelevant. Not only did they get trounced in the last elections, losing almost every single seat in local districts, in the town of New Baltimore, where Barbara Finke (R) is running unopposed for the office of New Baltimore town clerk, the democraps haven’t even been able to cough up a token opponent. That’s not democracy, people, that’s how they elect candidates in North Korea! (Please see our article on this subject at: Barbara Finke, Interim New Baltimore Town Clerk, For Example…)

north korea electionVote NO! to Sean Eldridge and his fag-hag Cecilia Tkaczyk.

We are looking at George Amedore, who is seeking re-election this year, and running against Eldridge’s fag hag, Cecilia Tkaczyk. We also have Peter Lopez and Chris Gibson (running against the “Pink Obama”, Sean Eldridge). Paul Tonko is also running for re-election. Our 19th and 20th Congressional districts are at risk. Although we hate to say it, “better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.” Let’s face it, they’re politicians, and unless they have some very conspicuous and glaring faults, we have to understand that they won’t be able to please all of the people all of the time. Eldridge and Tkaczyk have major faults that no one with any sense at all can ignore. But let’s face reality, people, our local and congressional Republicans have it all; they’re the best we have at this moment.

We endorse George Amedore: He made his money by the sweat of his brow, through hard work!
He’s a family man, too!

Say what you will about George Amedore. Yes! He is a millionaire. But he made his millions working his butt off in a family business that just happens to be successful. He has a beautiful family. He respects family values and is a hard worker. That means he gets our votes.

Eldridge and Tkaczyk have desecrated our most sacred values: marriage and family

And for those of you who think we may have a soft spot for Gibson, please read what we have to say in our articles: Don’t Ya Just Love It?, Congressman Chris Gibson Here on October 2, 2014! Be there!, Wow! McCartney-DiAcetis’ Stupidity Goes National, International. We’ve called him out for pussy-footing around the RCS anti-military bias, until DiAcetis (RCS high school principal) and Alan McCartney (RCS CSD interim superintendent) backpedaled until they reversed themselves!).

Eldridge and Tkaczyk have desecrated our most sacred values: marriage and family. Marriage by any definition is between a man and a woman to create children and to raise them responsibly. If Eldridge gets a pair of testicles and Chris Hughes gets a pair of ovaries and they parent a child, we may consider them a “family”. Maybe Cecilia Tkaczyk would play surrogate mother? What do you think, voters? Nah-h-h-h doesn’t work for us either. They’d still be two pervs and a fag hag, no matter how you cut it. George Amadore has our vote.

Peter Lopez: A Man with a Heart and a Brain.

Peter Lopez has been an incredibly accessible and compassionate man in the Assembly representing this district. We’ve seen him several times and find him very interested, very active, very responsible, and very responsive. The man’s got a heart and a brain—makes you wonder what he’s doing in politics, doesn’t it? We say give Peter Lopez your vote; he’s got ours!

We Endorse Colonel Chris Gibson over and against the Pink Obama, Sean Eldridge

Chris Gibson has disappointed us with his performance in investigating the RCS t-shirt scandal; as a retired National Guard officer he was just too quick to sweep the whole thing under the carpet and have done with it. We didn’t like the fact that he didn’t kick more ass and throw some weight around. But after our report on this blog, all of a sudden his campaign ads started touting his military experience. So what? It’s campaign time. Pull all the stops. Gibson’s not off the hook, not by a longshot. But we still feel that he’s the man to re-elect, given the choice between him and the “Pink Obama” Sean Eldridge. Gibson’s got our endorsement and our vote.

Paul Tonko. Again, the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t. Tonko has been a disappointment but he apparently comes up with the bacon now and then. It’s up to us to build a fire under his ass if we want to get something done. Let us know and we’ll provide the matches. If Tonko can commit to giving us his congressional support when we apply for education, healthcare or law enforcement grants, we’d be ready to support him this time around. What do ya say, Pauli, you gonna produce?

Candidates: Are there plans to run a large oil pipeline down from Canada, along the NYS Thruway, past our back yards, down to New Jersey? Come clean!

Here’s a homework assignment for our readers: You may or may not know that there are plans to run a large oil pipeline down from Canada, along the NYS Thruway, past your back yards, down to New Jersey. Did you know that? What do you think of that? Well, have you heard anything from Ms Tkzczyk, Mr Lopez, Mr Gibson, Mr Tonko or anyone about this plan? Well, we have four days before the elections. If any of you know how to contact any of the candidates, please do! And let them know we want to know before November 4th, what they know and where they stand on this serious threat to our local environment and homes! Any of the candidates can post a comment on this blog with their statements and positions. Right here where you all can read it. So if you have a way to contact any of the candidates, hit them with that question and see what they have to say.

In the meantime, before we all get depressed, let’s just remember that we still have a vote and, fortunately, there are many of us who will vote according to our well-informed consciences. We urge you to get involved. This is a culture war and it’s ours to win only if we fight. We may not be in Iraq or Afghanistan but our homeland enemies are just as dangerous as Al-qaida or ISIS, and you know it in your heart of hearts.

Gibson, Tonko, Lopez, Armadore

Gibson, Tonko, Lopez, Amedore
Maybe Astorino but then there’s always

News Herald Still Tries to Polish a Turd

For our readers’ convenience we have inserted links to articles on this blog that are referenced in this article. Just click on the links and read the article.


The Ravena News Herald never seems to miss a chance to impress us—negatively, of course—and this latest issue (Ravena News Herald, October 9, 2024) is not an exception. In fact, start sockpuppet Bryan Rowzee again betrays local readers with an unusually slanted and biased report—even for lackey Rowzee— on the town of Coeymans discussion on eliminating another duplication of services that is eating up taxpayer dollars in Coeymans: the outdated dispatcher services. But Rowzee simply repeats what some of RCS’s star hypocrites and liars dribbled at a Coeymans town board meeting two weeks ago. Yes, readers, Rowzee’s report is two weeks old! The devious Rowzee and his editors make readers think the information is recent by not giving the date of the meeting, making it appear that it’s more recent. Don’t be deceived, readers, you’re paying your $1 for local news that’s two weeks old. Rowzee and the morons he quotes in his “report” don’t provide any facts or figures, just pure speculation and unfounded opinion—most of which is quoted from the turdy lips of local elected officials, public servants, and former board members, the very people you’d expect to get up and talk facts and figures. But, Hold on! Have we forgotted where we are? This is RCS. Not exactly the land of truth, reality, facts and figures.


Don’t be deceived, readers, you’re paying your $1 for local news that’s two weeks old.

So how do you, some of you readers of the rag, Ravena News Herald, and stupid enough to pay $1 to do it, know what they’re talking about? When you get no facts or truth, it’s like climbing stairs to nowhere. You can’t get to the second floor without steps or a ladder, and they’re keeping you from getting the stairs or ladder.

Here’s another example many of you might be more familiar with. It’s in the town of Bethlehem, just about halfway between Ravena and Albany, very visibly positioned to be seen and read by people traveling on 9W towards Albany.

No Mr Ratmeyer, this is not God's handwork?"

No Mr Ratmeyer, this is not God’s handiwork?”

What this is, really is:

  • A distraction from the real awesomeness of God’s handiwork (which the sign is obliterating)
  • A poor quality, computer generated, enhanced, artificial excuse for the real thing (which if you weren’t reading Ratmeyer’s signboard, you’d actually see God’s handiwork!)
  • An example of the incomplete and flawed theology that local churches are feeding the famished faithful (Do they really know what it’s all about ?)
  • A very good example of the general misinformation and dysinformation that the American people are getting from their elected officials, their media, and—as our example shows—even from their churches! (Misinformation overload!)
  • A silly and feeble attempt to inspire a materialistic and individualistic mass of flesh passing by to come to their senses and recover, to salvage what’s left of their inheritance.

What it is, really is: A Lie.

In fact, it is a gross perversion of Calvin’s two-book theology of revelation: The book of Holy Scripture and the Book of Creation. The Reformed Church of America, an offshoot of Calvinism, like so many of our local churches, especially those of the minor and miniscule denominations, preach a misguided and misinformed theology to a very badly spiritually and religiously ignorant community. Ratmeyer’s Bethlehem Reformed Church isn’t the only one on the path to hell. We reported on this blog the demise of the New Baltimore Reformed Church under the misdirection of Ms Susan Kerr (read the article at: New Baltimore Reformed Church: Slow Agonizing Death).  But Ratmeyer’s signboard is nothing more than a feeble attempt to send a message, a very poorly thought message, to an audience who haven’t a clue what he’s driving at. In fact, it’s such an offensive perversion because Ratmeyer appears to have fallen victim to the very thing that is destroying the soul of the very humanity he is so impotently attempting to reach: the electronic video screen. How many souls has the electronic video screen already destroyed by drawing the observer’s attention into its nothingness while at the same time distracting the victim from reality, from the real world, from the real beauty around him or her. What was said of television a decade or two ago was that had torn families apart; today it’s the home computer, the iPads and so-called smart phones (that are smarter than their victim users) that are finishing what television started: the destruction of a social, family-oriented, community-conscious society. And the misnamed, insidious so-called social media like Facebook (Pink Obama” Sean Eldridge’s same-sex hubby Chris Hughes’ contribution to the decay of America—and now Eldridge wants your vote to make him a national lawmaker, a US congressman! No gay way!) which is in fact asocial, antisocial media that has disabled interpersonal communications and relationship building to new levels.

Now let’s get to our point, polishing turds.

Brian Rowzee and the Ravena News Herald Use a Lot of this.

Brian Rowzee and the Ravena News Herald Use a Lot of this.

So let’s get back to the News Herald and it’s misinformation and lies. While Rowzee makes very certain all of his friends get quoted, he conspicuously avoids any facts like:

  • How many dispatchers are concerned
  • How much money is being spent on the dispatchers and the dispatch office(s)
  • How much money will be saved if the dispatchers are eliminated
  • How many calls the dispatchers handle in a week, a month, a year
  • What kind of calls are they handling (life-and-death, car doesn’t start, cat-in-a-tree, etc.)
  • The fact that Albany County has a very sophisticated network of 911 dispatchers who can handle just about every emergency
  • That most of the dispatchers are family members of town and village employees (No surprise, right?)
  • That if Coeymans keeps the dispatchers, they will necessarily have to spend a bundle to update their outdated equipment and more money to train the dispatchers, something that you’re already paying for in your tax dollars because Albany County provides the dispatching service.
  • That if the dispatchers are eliminated, the town of Coeymans can save more than $350,000 in the budget.
  • That now that do-do cop Gregory Darlington has finally left the Coeymans p.d., the town can leave that position unfilled and save another more than $100,000 (Darlington was paid more than $100,000 if you include his benefits, pension, and town vehicle he drove around).
  • How does that pan out in terms of eliminating the Coeymans police department overall and letting the Albany County Sheriff and the New York State police do what they’re being paid to do. (Read our article at: Supervisor Flach: On Eliminating the Coeymans P.D.)
  • And finally, What brand of turd polish are you using to make local shit shine, Mr Rowzee?

So let’s ask Mr Rowzee and his editors, and his bosses Mark Vinciguerra and John B. Johnson of the Johnson Newspapers Corp., the corporation that owns the Ravena News Herald and Mr Bryan Rowzee, who is also part-owned by the village of Ravena: Where are the facts, the figures, the real meat and potatoes of the issue?

Looking at Rowzee’s so-called report:

Nothing you're likely to get from Bryan Rowzee or the Ravena News Herald!

Nothing you’re likely to get from Bryan Rowzee or the
Ravena News Herald
!

It seems that Mr Tom Dolan, local democrap party official and sitting town of Coeymans board member, didn’t attend the information-gathering meetings with the other board members, when they met with Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple. Why doesn’t Mr Rowzee dig a bit deeper into the reasons why Dolan fell short of his obligations to this community to do everything possible to be as well informed as possible?

Rowzee reports that “two visiting village [of Ravena] trustees” attended the meeting and commented. Wait a minute, wasn’t it the village of Ravena who a couple of years back told the town of Coeymans that town employees could not address the village board meetings? And didn’t Michael Biscone, village attorney at the time, put that in a formal letter to the town? (Read the article at: Business as Usual in Ravena: Violation of Constitutional Rights!) And of all people from the village to make any comments on anything, we have Ravena’s Bill Bailey and Nancy Warner making statements!

That’s the same Bill Bailey who was told a couple of months back by town code enforcement officer Laverne Conrad in a public meeting on water delivery that Bailey was “telling the board a load of crap” (Read the article at: Conrad to Bailey: “You’re telling this board a load of crap!”). While we have little regard for that snake Laverne Conrad and his crooked deals and illegal land development projects (Rea our article at: Got Creek? The Case of the Missing Stream…,  , he’s right Bailey does talk crap. He’s known far and wide to talk crap. He never has any solid facts and mumbles any shite that happens to make its way into his muddled head. But Rowzee quotes him voicing his concern about New Scotland and Rensselaer, Westerlo, says Bailey, “I don’t believe…pay for dispatch and receive the service.” Duh! What’s your point Bozo? And, excuse us, isn’t Rensselaer a city and a county on the other side of the river? What in hell does Rensselaer have to to with Coeymans? How does Rensselaer compare to that hovel New Scotland or Westerlo? Any answers Mr Bailey, Mr Rowzee? Oops, they’re talking a load of crap AGAIN!

Typical Rat Response

Typical Rat Response

Both Mr Bill Bailey and Mr Tom Boehm, who lost the public’s confidence in the last elections when he was voted out, were apparently concerned with “timing,” and that the town’s inquiry is being made around budget time. Duh No. 2. This is a question, Mr Bailey and Mr Boehm, of trimming a considerable amount of money from the town budget. When in hell else should it be considered you two morons? Are you suggesting that dead wood should be kept in the budget and the budget approved, then the dead wood discussed and possibly eliminated. Sounds like the way Bailey runs Ravena and Boehm used to run Coeymans: put the cart before the horse and wonder why nothing happens.

And of all people to be talking about behind-the-scenes meetings, and decisions made in secret, sounds like Mr Boehm is losing it. He was voted out of office because of his secret meetings, his fake press releases and conferences, his general dishonesty. But now that Boehm is out, he’s got a lot to say. Well, who would know better than Tom Boehm about sneaking around and leaving the public out of the loop. Answer: Ravena sitting trustee-who-can’t-be-trusted, none other than Nancy Warner. That’s who!

Nancy Warner should know all there is to know about making decisions behind closed doors and secret meetings. Just about two years ago she conspired with Cathy Deluca and insider Robert Fisk to purchase more than $40,000 in used fitness equipment from Fisk. The equipment was used in a health club under Cathy Deluca’s management that failed. The club and its contents were owned by Ravena insider Bob Fisk. That purchase was made behind closed doors but the history gets even more scandalous.

pack of liesNancy Warner and others on the Ravena village board met secretly with Cathy Deluca and decided that Cathy Deluca would get a health club in the space occupied at the time by the RCS Community Library. So Nancy Warner and the Ravena village board made life as miserable as possible for the library and even raised the library’s rent by more than $600 a month, punishing them for not moving out. But nothing was said that the premises into which they were to move was not yet ready because the cousin, Don Persico, of sitting Ravena board member, Rocco Persico (voted out of office in the last elections but still employed by the RCS school district as a school psychologist), because Persico was waiting for the bank to approve a loan so he could continue the work. Smell a rat yet? If you do it’s called a Nancy Warner!

It gets better. Well, the village of Ravena board under Warner and Bailey, then create the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, without public input and go on to budget more than $100, 000 to support it in its first year in the Ravena budget. $40,000 for used equipment, no public input, secret meetings. $100,000 for an unnecessary health club, no public input, secret meetings.

Coconspirators & Losers: Nancy'Warner's Team.

Co-conspirators & Losers: Nancy Warner’s Team.
Rocco Persico, John Bruno, Martin Case

Then, they appoint Cathy Deluca to be the director of the Ravena Health and Fitness Center—by this time she’s already managed two previous health clubs into oblivion and failure—, she has no qualifications at all—except that she’d previously managed two health clubs into oblivion—, and then fraudulently push through her position as a civil service position, non-competitive, with associated benefits–the director of the Albany County Civil Service Department who approved the application lost his job shortly after we started investigating the misuse of the process— (Read our article at: Ravena Laws Unconstitutional! Violation of Protected First Amendment Rights AGAIN!), and Warner pushed to pay Deluca more than $30,000 plus benefits. $40,000 for used equipment, no public input, secret meetings. $100,000 for an unnecessary health club, no public input, secret meetings. $30,000 for an unqualified insider, Cathy Deluca, to manage the illegal Ravena Health and Fitness Center, using the illegally purchased used fitness equipment. No public input, no public meetings, all behind closed doors.

But Rowzee quotes Nancy Warner as saying, “If this is going to involve the entire town and include the village, I think we need to just be made aware of what is going on.” Really, Nancy? You thieving hypocrite!

Shame on you, Nancy Warner.

Shame on you, Nancy Warner.

You’ll remember last year when Nancy Warner and former mummy-mayor John Bruno were targeting the kids in Ravena, getting ex-Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington to harass them with his patrols. That stopped abruptly when we reported on the situation and filed a notice of claim against Ravena and the town of Coeymans police department for violation of civil and protected rights. Have you all forgotten Nancy Warner’s involvement in the misdemeanor and civil right violations charges against Cathy Deluca and the obstruction of justice complaints brought against the Coeymans police department when Cathy Deluca filed a false report and lied to the Coeymans police, trying to bring a harassment charge against a local resident who was visiting the Ravena Health and Fitness Club. Even though the resident recorded the entire visit, from the point of leaving his car to the point of driving off, completely proving that Cathy Deluca had lied, she was kept employed. (Read the article at: Criminal Complaint: Catherine M. Deluca a.k.a. Cathy Deluca, Claude A. Wheeles, Ravena Health and Fitness Center) Then officer Jason Albert, now “detective” Jason Albert, investigated but like a good little soldier obeyed when told to drop it, was rewarded for his obstruction of justice and playing the favorites, insiders game with that promotion to detective. (Read the article at: Criminal Obstruction of Justice & Official Misconduct: Gregory Darlington, Coeymans PD)Isn’t that enough on its own to eliminate the Gestapo Coeymans police department and fire all of the thugs employed there? Wouldn’t that be enough to fire Cathy Deluca? They fired a village employee for using a village postage stamp but kept criminal Deluca on? (Reade the article at:Village of Ravena Served: Cathy Deluca and Ravena Health and Fitness Center under Fire and Bruno, Deluca, Warner Squirming to Cover It Up) Go figure!

Oh! Did we mention that Nancy Warner “supervises” the village of Ravena court? It just so happens that her husband, the corrupt, civil-rights abuser ex-Albany cop, Harold “Hal” Warner is the Village of Ravena justice. Pretty cozy, isn’t it? But the notion of conflict of interests, abuse of public office, and public corruption hasn’t yet entered Ravena’s vocabulary, and, if what we’ve been able to observe in Ravena mayor William “Moose” Misuraca’s performance, it’s not likely those words will be used very soon either.

By the way, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center pays no rent, does not pay for the facilities, is failing to attract enough members to even come close to paying Cathy Deluca’s salary, let alone the $100,000 budgeted for the money pit, but Ravena mayor William “Moose” Misuraca and his village board have not made a single step towards eliminating Cathy Deluca’s playpen and wasting Ravena tax dollars. Why is that Mr Misuraca? Why is it, Mr Rowzee, that you never utter a peep about these issues that are so important to residents and this community?

Bryan Rowzee has been reporting for the Ravena News Herald at least for as long as all of this has been going on. He works in the RCS Community Library (see the photo on the same page of the October 9, 2014 Ravena News Herald, where he’s posing with other library employees). But Rowzee, whose wife is employed by the village of Ravena as a secretary in the building department, is very careful to report just the right things and quote the right people, isn’t he. Bryan Rowzee is just as guilty as the crooks he paints in such rosy colors in his so called reports. Why? Because the village of Ravena employs his wife!

Another insignificant loser to take the speakers podium was former town of Coeymans board member, Dawn Rogers, voted out in the last elections, and a close collaborator of Guess who? You got it, Tom Boehm and Tom Dolan. She makes up the third in the Coeymans Three Stooges Losers’ Club. Dawn Rogers never had much to say while on the board but she’s pretty perky when it comes to joining in with the crooks’ choir, isn’t she? Rogers couldn’t be heard or when heard, believed while on the board, why should she now have such credibility? Maybe Mr Rowzee can answer that question.

The others, other than Jolene Hopkins, who was staged together with her prop-child to tear at some heart strings and support the other phoneys, was not an Oscar-winning performance. It was too easy to see through her and her story. Why is it these crooks always get the kids involved? That should be a form of abuse of a child!

Coeymans ex- police chief, Gregory Darlingon, did what all good rats do.

Coeymans ex- police chief, Gregory Darlington, did what all good rats do.

The other speakers are really insignificant because their statements were made only to protect their own turf, their own jobs, the jobs they got with the town for their relatives. Fire chief Travis Whitbeck, former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington (who announced his abrupt resignation later that very night) really had their own pockets in mind and had nothing, really, to say about facts and figures or anything constructive. Even Darlington, the coward, chose to resign rather than stand his ground and fight for his dispatchers and his department. Like a rat, he abandoned ship. (Our guess is that race-ticket-carrier Albany County district Attorney, another corrupt rat-keeper, P. David Soares, is expected to take Darlington in. Darlington will then be able to sit next to his wife, who already works for “Pudenda” Soares.) Albany will never change as the capital of corruption. But did we expect anything else?

Maybe if local residents boycott the Ravena News Herald and the other newspapers owned by the Johnson Newspaper Corp. (like the The Daily Mail • Chatham Courier • Windham Journal • The Mountain Eagle • Ravena News-HeraldGreene County NewsRiver Chronicle) and its officers like Mark Vinciguerra and John B. Johnson, they might give Mr Bryan Rowzee some guidance on how to report real news, true facts, and genuine figures so that the community is informed and educated, not just fed gossip and propaganda! Hell! We might even be able to get recent news honestly reported and not reports on events that are more than 2 weeks old!

extraAnd We Thought the Village of Ravena Couldn’t Stoop Any Lower
They Can!

There’s one other story that needs to be covered here. That’s the one where Ravena resident Regina Palmer has had to appear before the Ravena village board to be humiliated into asking to make installment payments for charges levied by the village of Ravena for “discovering” a water leak in the delivery line from the water mains. Maybe Ms Palmer should inquire with the village authorities about the village’s offer in the late 90’s to foot the bill for residential service lines from the village mains to the resident and to foot the bill for the digging! It’s in the public record! Dozens of homes got it done, and it’s still done for insiders ‘quietly’. Doesn’t that make better sense? Do you think Palmer should have had to pay twice for the digging? We think NOT! Not while they’re paying crooks like Cathy Deluca $30,000 a year for What? And more than $100,000 a year for an illegal health club? And how many tens of thousands on botched up roadwork? It’s no wonder there’s no business in Ravena-Coeymans. It’s no wonder half of Ravena-Coeymans’ properties are either distressed, vacant, or up for sale. Way to go Ravena! Just try that on our property and learn what a good ass-kicking feels like!

Ms Palmer has kindly provided more specific details on the situation. Please see the comments for more information: We would like to correct the report we posted on the Palmer property and water line leak between the main and the Palmer home.Property where Gina Palmer resides in is not in Ravena. The location that the digging occurred was not on Ms Palmer’s property, it was in fact under the road. When they discovered the leak, they did indeed show me where it was and told me it was my responsibility since the leak was in the residential line not at the main. After inquiring about how I would go about fixing a leak that was under a state road, Henry did provide Ms Palmer with the names of local contractors who could do the work; however, Ms Palmer suggested that since it was already dug up that they should go ahead and fix it. Palmer was told that there would be a charge and she agreed to have them do the work. Palmer reports that she personally thought the fee they charged was more than reasonable compared to what other contractors may have charged for this same work. Palmer says she appreciates that the Ravena board accepted her request to make payments.

Our response: It was improper for Henry Traver to have recommended local contractors to Ms Palmer. That should have resulted in a complaint to the village Board. If the leak was under a state road, we don’t understand why Ms Palmer agreed to pay for the repair. Why didn’t she inquire further how Traver and his crew of dunces established the property lines. If they were digging under a state road, how could they know that the leak was on Palmer’s property? Why  would Palmer agree to pay for the digging before a proper investigation had been conducted? Seems to us that Palmer falls in to the general category of Ravena self-made victims. We think that what Palmer did in this instance is like handing a drug addict a joint. Palmer actually enabled these crooks to continue their unlawful and crooked games with Ravena residents.

Nevertheless, Ms Palmer is an adult and can do whatever she likes. We consider what she does in its effects on the general community, however.

Sean Eldridge: Does he even know how to represent the 99%?

No Politician is the Perfect Pick. In fact, every politician is an imperfect pick but some politicians are more imperfect than others. When they forget their imperfection they become incompetent and dangerous.

Sean Eldridge: Can he really represent the 99%?

Is This the Altrnative? Lord Help Us!The 'White Obama" Sean Eldridge with his hubby Chris Hughes and New York state Senator Cecilia Tkaczyk The [Disgusted] Editor,/big>

Is This the Altrnative?
Lord Help Us!

The ‘Pink Obama” Sean Eldridge with his hubby Chris Hughes and New York state Senator Cecilia Tkaczyk

Question is really, can Sean Eldridge even acknowledge we’re here, let alone understand our needs. Are his ears attuned to voices so different from ours that he is deaf to the 99%? In fact, isn’t Sean Eldridge a bit overly arrogant to think that with his disconnection from the rest of us not only in job experience, in life experience, in moral values that he can possibly represent but a small part of this constituency? Do we need another arrogant deaf politician in Washington? Our answer is NO! Sean Eldridge is so vastly different from us that he cannot possible appreciate who we are and what we need.

First of all, he and his “hubby“, Chris Hughes (of FaceBook bucks), are multimillionaires, members of the exclusive 1% club. They live in different worlds than we do. They inhabit planets that revolve around different suns, different centers, than ours does.

In fact, both Eldridge and Hughes should be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail for having co-created that monster addiction, FaceBook, that has our dimwit young people and many half-witted adults glued to their electronic devices, oblivious to the world around them, while they squander their lives on ASOCIAL media, pouring out their impoverished emotions and souls into empty cyberspace. You’ll have to agree that Facebook is the farthest thing from “social media” and has created a culture of illiterate zombies. No thanks! Mr Eldridge and Mr Hughes! If that’s your idea of serving America, you might just as well put on an ISIS uniform and just decapitate America!

What is the 1%? Who is the 1%? Read the truth in Forbes Are You Rich Enough? The Terrible Tragedy Of Income Inequality Among The 1%

Secondly, Sean Eldridge and his kind they talk to different people, their own kind, who, like Eldridge and “hubby” Hughes, are members of the same country club, the 1% club, and have different priorities, values, ethics, morals, and very few needs and many greeds.

Is Cecilia Tkaczyk Eldridge's Fag Hag?

Is Cecilia Tkaczyk Eldridge’s
“Fag Hag”*?

* What in hell is a “fag hag“? Read about it here: Fag Hag.

And speaking of “their own kind” Cecilia Tkaczyk is one of Eldridge’s clubmembers. In the picture we selected above, most of Eldridge and Hughes gender-orientation community would call her a “fag hag” in that picture (she’s posing with Eldridge and “hubbyHughes at the Hudson Valley Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender 2014 Gala where Eldridge spoke) ; that is, a woman who hangs out with gay men. She’s OK with that and—believe it or not—, so are we. Here’s why: she saves us the trouble of wasting any more words on her. One picture is worth a thousand words. She’s telling us in unmistakeable terms who she is, what she is, what she supports, and that she doesn’t deserve to be re-elected. Actually, she allegedly wasn’t elected in the first place but we won’t comment further on that scandalous misuse of the democratic process that put her in single-term office.

For an entertaining discussion of fag hags etc. (Warning: this article can get a bit steamy 😉 ), visit Why Do Gay Men Need Fag Hags?

Thirdly, Sean Eldridge’s values, morals and ethics—more accurately we should say his lack of values, morals and ethics—are far different from ours. First of all, how many of this constituency think same-sex marriage is acceptable, even necessary? Isn’t marriage by its very definition a union between a man and a woman, for the purpose of procreation, and then protecting those children and educating them to be good members of the community? But Sean Eldridge believes that marriage as an institution needs to be redefined to fit his chosen lifestyle. How many of us agree with that self-centered point of view? But then, when it’s convenient for him, he uses a loophole in the Defense of Marriage Act, federal legislation he opposes, to avoid full disclosure of his and his “hubby’s” actual financial status, how much they really have! You see, millionaire Eldridge wants to flash that he’s “married” to millionaire Chris Hughes but argues that the Defense of Marriage Act does not recognize same-sex marriages, so in the “eyes” of DOMA, Eldrige and Hughes are not married, not spouses. So Eldridge reasons that he doesn’t have to disclose his and Hughes’ combined income. Sean Eldridge wants his cake and he wants to eat it too. But we’re not invited to the party.

Read more about Eldridge’s hypocricy at DOMA Limits House Candidate Sean Eldridge’s Financial Disclosures

Eldridge and Hughes didn’t get their millions by not supporting corporations and ensuring that their investments pay off. But when corporations “pay off” and their investors become millionaires, somebody else is paying. Guess who that is? Do you think that he’s going to refuse the dividends on his investments because the corporations are screwing the little guy? Do you really believe Eldridge when he says he never took a dime from a corporation? Then where did he and “hubby” Chris Hughes get their millions? From the Easter bunny?

easter bunny money

Sean Eldridge, in his pretty-boy poses with his “hubbyChris Hughes, just oozes phoney! His sugary and equally phoney campaign ads are just as flaky as he is. We don’t need another snowflake in Washington claiming to represent us. We have an Oreo snowflake in the White House now who got there riding the race card and has all but destroyed this country with his lack of experience and total lack of leadership. We don’t need the “Pink Obama“, Sean Eldridge, moving his shaved butt to Washington only to promote his club’s agendas, and making his offensive contribution to plunging this country into deeper distress, anxiety, and moral decline.

Moving-animated-picture-bunny-hopping-easter-eggs-basket

Sean Eldridge is not the Easter Bunny!
Sean Eldridge is a much bigger fake!

Sean Eldridge’s hypocrisy shows through his facials and manicures. He’s as phoney as his cosmetic smile. Voters need to get the failure Barack Hussein “Oreo” Obama out of Washington, and keep the “Pink Obama” from setting up shop in Washington.

The “Pink Obama”, Sean Eldridge, wants us to give his ego a free ride to Washington on our backs and at our expense.

Sean Eldridge is not the Easter Bunny!He's a much bigger fake!

Don’t become a bunch of hopping eggs in Sean Eldridge’s bunny basket!

We’re not saying that any politician is or can be perfect; most politicians are human (at least on one side of the family tree) and thus by their very nature are imperfect. The problem arises when they start to think that they are not imperfect, and forget that some are more imperfect than others. Sean Eldridge is one of those wannabe politicians who forgets his imperfection, who has lost the connection with who he really is, and by doing so is starting to believe his own lies; Sean Eldridge is more imperfect than his opponents.

Don’t Vote for Sean Eldridge or Cecilia Tkaczyk—the Antichrist Duo!

There are better alternatives.

Congressman Chris Gibson Here on October 2, 2014! Be there!

Your United States Congressman Chris Gibson will be in our area on October 2, 2014, we are advised by New Baltimore Republican Club president, Jeff Ruso.

american spirit
Congressman Chris Gibson Here on October 2nd!

“I received confirmation that Chris Gibson will be at the New Baltimore Republican Club meeting of Oct. 2nd.  This will be at Pegasus’ Restaurant. We start at 7:00, but the Congressman is not expected until about 7:45.  George Amedore, Peter Lopez and others also are confirmed.” *
 * Editor’s note: There may be a donation at the door but there is usually food, door prizes,
and a 50-50, which make it a bit more fun.

 This might be a great time to take an evening, have a little bite to eat at one of our area’s leading eateries, the famous Pegasus Restaurant, to meet your neighbors, and to grill your legislators.
Colonel Chris Gibson United States Congressman

The New Baltimore Republican Club is a very welcoming, friendly group of neighbors, and we’re sure they’d be more than delighted to welcome anyone of any party affiliation from the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk communities, as well as neighbors in Greene County.

It may be a good time to also address the local problem of anti-military bias in our schools, and hear what the national legislators think of the RCS scandal raised by Mr Tom DiAcetis, principal of the RCS high-school, and Mr Alan McCartney, RCS central school district interim supervisor. That scandal united 19 local students to challenge DiAcetis and McCartney, who were shredded on national media, and mobilized parents to hand out National Guard t-shirts at the recent RCS homecoming game. (See the front-page report in the Ravena News Herald, October 2, 2014). DiAcetis and McCartney are desperately backpedaling but it’s doing them no good, except to further mark them as liars and incompetent as leaders. The Ravena News Herald appears to be providing DiAcetis and McCartney with excuses but when Bryan Rowzee of the Ravena News Herald quotes Alan McCartney as saying, “McCartney went on to explain that the recruiter personally ‘apologized for his actions…”! Well, Mr McCartney, the recruiter is not the one who should be offering apologies, you ASS! You should be apologizing all the way to the door, together with Tom DiAcetis, and your special-interest biased RCS board of education! You should be apologizing for your anti-military bias, your double-talk to the taxpayers and parents of this district, and your lax attitude with renegade and maverick school administrators and crooked teachers! No, Mr McCartney, the unnamed recruiter doesn’t have to apologize.

outrageAnd Thank you! James Staats of South Bethlehem for your short but very to-the-point letter-to-the-editor of the News Herald in which you give DiAcetis and McCartney the lashing they deserve! Mr Staats writes: “McCartney went on to explain that the recruiter personally ‘apologized for his actions and agreed to meet with students concerning the shirts.” We’d like to note that the News Herald’s and Rowzee’s attempts in the extensive positive coverage of the RCS school district in the October 2, 2014, issue is an obvious attempt to distract readers from the seriousness of the DiAcetis-McCartney scandal. In fact, it’s insulting to read that McCartney says that the recruiter “personally apologized”! For what? Mr McCartney. It’s not the recruiter who owes us an apology, you ASS! It’s YOU and Tom DiAcetis! Our legislators, Mr Gibson, Mr Lopez and others (Amedore) need to weigh in on this scandal; after all, they can lean heavily on education officials in the state and federal departments of education to discipline such violations of civics and civil rights.

Open Letter to all RCS board members:

While I know many of you, I want to address the full board on a matter of extreme importance.

As a graduate of RCS and an Army veteran, I am outraged by the decision of  Interim Superintendent AlanMcCartney to ban the wearing of tee-shirts handed out by the National Guard to students. This is a graphic of a soldier standing sentinel in defense of our freedoms. This should not be offensive to anybody but should invoke pride that we have courageous men and women to serve our country.

I would like an answer from each one of you; not in political gobbeldygook, whether you agree or disagree with his decision. I would like to remind you that this is not just about budgets but our basic freedoms that our soldiers have fought and died for.

I am calling for an immediate firing of Dr Alan McCartney. We don’t need to pay $600 a day to disrespect our military and further erode our hard fought freedoms.

James S. Staats
South Bethlehem

We’re publishing Mr Staats’ letter in its entirety because we believe he’s right. But the Ravena News Herald reaches less than 3,000 readers each week; we get that many in a day! Published here, it reaches thousands of readers locally, nationally, internationally. It expresses many residents’, voters’ sentiments and sentiments that our legislators like Mr Gibson, Mr Lopez and potentially Mr Amadore are well-advised to keep clearly in mind.

Question: Where is George McHugh, an Army JAG officer, and Terry Kindlon, a marine, on all of this. You’d think they’d be out prosecuting DiAcetis and McCartney as well and the members of the RCS CSD board of education pro bono for their un-American activity! Hello! Guys, where are you?!?

Not only should local veterans and others mobilize and make the October 2 NBRC meeting to meet our legislators, you should appear in support of the United States Armed Forces. Yeah! Ask Mr Gibson, Mr Lopez and Mr Amadore where they stand on these issues.

What does former Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington do while all of this is going on? He throws a sissy-fit and resigns. We think that ex-military law enforcement like former NB constable, the late Don “Squeaky” Tanner and former police chief Frank “Babe” McCabe, two proud veterans, would have gone down there and taken the cowards by the scruff of the neck and kicked some anti-military ass. They were law enforcement who had family values, morality, had the community spirit, watched everyone’s back, and cared for every kid as one of their own! Not like the beasts we have in local law enforcement now who make our young people Public Enemy No. 1 and their ticket to an undeserved pension.

Remember: Candidates need the support of major political parties to get on a ballot and run. That’s the way it is. But once they’re in office, no matter who elected them, they have an obligation to represent the best interests of EVERYONE, not just the ones who supported them, in their district. It’s our responsibility to remind them of that fact.

We hope to see many of our loyal readers at the Pegasus Restaurant (10885 State Route 9W, Coxsackie, NY 12051 Tel. (518) 731-9200),  on October 2, 2014, to meet Mr Gibson, who is running against pretty rich-boy liberal Sean Eldridge (the ‘White Obama’).

October 2nd, at Pegasus Restaurant, promises to be a blockbuster! You may want to phone ahead to make your reservation: (518) 731-9200.

Bring your questions and pet peeves with you for the legislators.

Editor’s Note: As stupid as it may seem, the town of Coeymans is holding its town board meeting on the same evening, October 14, 2014, as the RCS-CSD board of education is holding their meeting. Both the Coeymans town board meeting and the RCS-CSD BoE meeting need your attendance because both have especially important issues on the agenda. Local residents and taxpayers should not have to make a choice which of these meetings to attend. We urge the RCS-CSD BoE and the town of Coeymans to get their empty heads together and stagger their meetings to allow citizens to be involved and to participate in the democratic process.

We also urge all military, ex-military, veterans to make it a special point to attend the RCS-CSD BoE meeting on October 14, 2014, to show support for our military men and women and our veterans, and to tell Mr DiAcetis and Mr McCartney and the nazis on the RCS BoE exactly what you think of their un-American policies and their disrespect for the loyalty and patriotism of their students and the National Guard! Be there!

Be There on October 2nd! And don't forget the BoE meeting on October 14. We won't forget! The Editor

Be There on October 2nd!
And don’t forget the BoE meeting on October 14. We won’t forget!

Coeymans Town Board Meeting: Circus of Imbeciles, the Insane

Listening to the Absolute Ignorant Bull on Channel 11’s Coverage of the Coeymans Town Board Meeting would Make a Maggot want to Vomit!

Coeymans Board: We Don’t Know. We don’t have the facts.

The Coeymans Town Board Meetings are the Best Freak Show in Town

The Coeymans Town Board Meetings are the Best Freak Show in Town

First of all, the fact that the Coeymans town board admits that it doesn’t have the facts and figures it needs to intelligently discuss the proposal of eliminating the pool of so-called dispatchers–actually a group of family members of the Coeymans police department; just check out the names and the relationships–is the usual embarassment.

Supervisor Steven Flach has fallen on his face innumberable times these past months starting with the zoning debacle, to the Carver Laraway sell out, the fairytale of job creation, the continuing untold story of adverse environmental impact of the businesses to which the Judas administration has sold out, law suits (these are nothing new, we’ve collected documentation of literally dozens of Notices of Claims, mostly against the Coeymanazi police department) and the list goes on and on. The problem is that voters don’t have the chance to elect people who know what they’re doing, they elect a bunch of amateurs with little or no government savvy and now they have to live with it.

Then we have the Gestapo Coeymans police chief, Gregory Darlington, smoozing the ditzy demented old women who get up and make absolute fools of themselves but are pandering to Darlington who is eating it all up like the glutton he is. Darlington’s a cheap act but like most low-life, he’ll do anything to survive.

What came out in tonight’s Coeymans town board meeting (September 22, 2014) was what we have been observing over and over again in the past: No one seems to know what they’re talking about and no one has any facts. What’s worse still is that what we’ve been saying for months now about the Coeymans town board–even after Flach got the majority and dumped Tom Boehm and Dawn Rogers, two shameful supporters of Darlington and his money pit police department, is this: Flach and the board simply don’t do their homework and have the despicable habit of acting on ignorance or halfbaked notions. In fact, most of the board, including Supervisor Steven Flach actually said they “don’t know”. How in hell can they appear for a meeting and not have their ducks in a row. But it happens again and again. No wonder residents are furious and frustrated.

you dont know

And enough already. We thought we heard the end of Tom Boehm’s smoozing of his harlot Coeymans police department and its main pimp, Gregory Darlington. Boehm to his discredit has a bad memory and doesn’t have the sense to keep his mouth shut–especially when Tom Dolan throws his own words in his face! But we’ve said that so often before about Boehm. But then, Coeymans weasel Tom Dolan is a perverse opportunist, as we all know when he speaks against the zoning when the zoning scandal was hatched on his watch together with Flach, Boehm and Rogers. It’s only now that the stuff is hitting the fan. But still, Flach sets himself up on the defensive only have to defend more and more of what he’s doing.

Mary Driscoll’s glowing but demented endorsement of Flach’s performance, of Darlington’s department, of small and large government, centralized schools, and worse still, her support and total ignorance of how the 911 dispatch system works only confirms our assessment many times published on this blog: Some of the local residents who are most vociferous and outspoken should really be on drugs, sedatives actually. We have some advice for Mary Driscoll: Listen, dear, it’s not emotion, it’s dementia.

It's Happening Before Your Eyes

It’s Happening Before Your Eyes

What we heard at the Coeymans town board meeting was total misinformation and uninformed blather. Someone, perhaps even someone on the Coeymans town board, should actually learn how 911 works in terms of dispatching emergency services. Maybe then Mr DoDo Darlington won’t be so smug or so brave when his lies and the misinformation is replaced by hard facts and a rational report. $300,000 is a good chunk of money that’s being paid from taxpayer dollars to fund a small bunch of insiders who are duplicating a service already being provided very professionally.

Why was Coeymans police chief so amused by all of this?  We’ve already made the point that when all of this is going on the Coeymans police are pretty scarce.

Driscoll: I get so emotional!

Driscoll: I get so emotional!

One speaker, again speaking from a very self-centered and extraordinary point of view, did make some good points while exhibiting her infant (Was that a prop intended to make a point we wonder?). While her sole justification for wasting taxpayer dollars was her own pregnancy, she did rub Darlington’s nose in some nasty stuff but he didn’t seem to catch on. The woman made the point that the trucks terrorizing Coeymans and Ravena streets are a danger to life and limb; a real threat to local residents and children! Why was Darlington laughing and smiling through all of her statement? The speaker also made the point that the trucks are racing through the hamlet of Coeymans and Ravena, certainly going more than 30 miles an hour. She also made the point that they’re on phones or doing something, certainly not paying attention to their driving. Again, Why was Coeymans police chief so amused by all of this?  We’ve already made the point that when all of this is going on the Coeymans police are pretty scarce. So, Mr Darlington, wipe that smile off your stupid porcine snout and answer the question: Why is this happening and where are your Coeymanazis when all of this is going on?

We know where they are, Mr Darlington, they’re harassing the residents who are attempting to clean up that cesspool of Coeymans. Handing out parking tickets to residents unloading supplies to renovate the distressed properties. On Coeymans police chief Darlington’s orders, according to one Coeymans gestapo. Yes, there were witnesses when Darlington’s monkey made the statement. And Yes! Coeymans, you can ask yourselves, Will the retaliation and intimidation never stop?!? Our answer: Yes, as soon as you clean out the nest of vermin in the basement of Coeymans town hall!

vermin

As we watched and listened, it became apparent that Mr Darlington was manipulative as ever and that Mr Flach was as timid as ever. Even though not speaking in an official capacity, Tom Boehm was speaking as the smoke and mirrors artist, as always, pandering to his friends in the Coeymans p.d. Tom Dolan, was doing his carnival sideshow, trying to appear like he knew something and was the only one who did. All of them were in the dark of their own diseased egos.

Coeymans: You’re like alcoholics, who know the bottle is killing them but it’s all you have, so you cling to your addiction even though it’s killing you.

FEAR!

But one thing stood out clearly: At least the speakers, if not the entire group present at that meeting, seemed to think that in the perhaps hundreds of communities across New York state, most of which do not have expensive duplicated services in their budgets, that their pregnant citizens are bleeding to death on their kitchen floors or their elderly are being eaten alive in their garages by “rabid” dogs because they don’t have local dispatchers! How stupid! What we heard under all the words are the voices of a couple of frightened people who didn’t trust their elected officials. The speakers were speaking from their own traumatic or imagined encounters with their own mortality. They also represented the essence of addiction and attachment: No matter whether good or bad. You’re like alcoholics, who know the bottle is killing them but it’s all they have, so they cling to their addiction even though it’s killing them. A sick kind of greed, where you have something and you cling to it too anxious to let go of what you have, too scared to take a risk.

And we can also add for the benefit of the concerned resident with the infant: You would have gotten to St Peters just as fast if you simply called 911. And if you get rid of the duplicated services in Coeymans, that is, the dispatchers, the $300,000 saved in the budget may help to put those sidewalks and safety measures in place that you claimed were so desperately needed to keep you and your children safe. Maybe if the Coeymans town board looks at things with some foresight and vision and stops playing knee-jerk, there’d be less waste, better services, and a safer, more vibrant community. All that’s been done so far is promote deterioration and unsafe conditions, spoiling our streets, our air and our environment, endanger our children and residents, while supporting unnecessary and inefficient fixtures like the Coeymans police department and its little club of friends.

Mr Boehm and others, but especially Mr Darlington, you are transparent not because you have an ounce of integrity or honesty—it’s clear to those of us with eyes to see and ears to hear that you have neither integrity nor honesty—but because you are so see-thru, so insubstantial, so common. Voters got rid of Boehm but left Darlington. Big mistake. The Coeymans town board hasn’t got the brains or the balls to tackle this problem or any of the grotesque problems facing Coeymans. Unfortunately, most of Coeymans isn’t up to the task either.

You are being sucked dry by a small group of parasitic sponges

You’re so terrified of losing something that you lose sight of the fact that you are being sucked dry by a small group of parasitic sponges. Either they are there padding their own nests with salaries that are far beyond their abilities (Darlington and most of the Coeymans p.d., the Ravena Public Works Department); you elect amateurs who are using you all like an army of AAA batteries to run their sick egos. No wonder you’re terrified! You take an incompetent blond bimbo off of the streets and where do you put her? You put her in the high-school! Why don’t you just lace the kids’ food with Ebola? You allow your stupid RCS board of education to put Danielle Crosier in the high school as SRO and then let her instruct in road safety! Are you all nutz? She rams parked cars, rides the shoulder of the road, endangers a minor in her custody, and you put her in the high school! Darlington and his pet cockroach, Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca used you and continue to use you to provide them with a playground and those two parasitic sponges, as stupid as they are, used and continue to use you up. Lucky for Coeymans the dorks at the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs were imbecilic enough to take Deluca off our hands. But we’re still stuck with mummy-mayor John Bruno’s senile legacy, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, another money pit that he provided to another parasitic sponge, Cathy Deluca, and one which the present amateur, bartender-become-mayor, monkey mayor Bill “Moose” Misuraca hasn’t had the balls to eliminate. And you’re worried about getting rid of the parasite sponges in the dispatcher’s den? Imbeciles!

High-School Principal Tom DiAcetis “Intimidated” and “Offended” by National Guard T-Shirt.
A Real Educator!

After seeing the National Guard T-shirt, DiAcetis talks to his therapist.

After seeing the National Guard T-shirt, DiAcetis talks to his therapist.

And then you have cowards like the high-school principal, Tom Diacetis, who suspends a student for wearing a tee-shirt handed out by a National Guard recruiter authorized to be on school property, because the shirt “intimidated” and “offended” him. Diacetis and all the others who are intimidated by anything that represents selfless service to community and country; the same cowards who never put on a uniform but are there to educate our kids in morals and values (while they’re humping each other in the coach’s office or doing someone’s harlot). The National Guard recruiter was told to leave the school. Oh! Did we mention violation of civil rights, abuse of First Amendment protected speech, Mr DiAcetis? As principal of the RCS high school you must have heard of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights, haven’t you?  Yeah! Harlots in the halls, cowards in the offices, bullies on the playground, and parasitic sponges in town hall. RCS education at its best and a real model system for the districts with real grad rates! And you’re crying about having to cut fat from the budget? Get a brain!

The bottom line: Ravena-Coeymans continues to be a cesspool of ignorance and corruption; Retaliation and intimidation continue as business as usual, and the same stupid sockpuppets get up and puke their pablum making the parade of clowns complete. It’s a circus of the insane.

They Publicize Their Ignorance: RCS Does It Again!

The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District and the Community of Ravena-Coeymans Has the Uncanny Ability to Continuously Prove Our Claim that They are COMPLETE DUMBASSES!

RCS Grad: Sponcer. S-P-0-N-C-E-R. Sponcer

RCS Grad: Sponcer. S-P-0-N-C-E-R. Sponcer

  • The voters in the RCS Central School District approved a school budget of more than $42 million and it’s still failing

  • The RCS Central School District Interim Superintendent of Schools, Mr Alan McCartney, has been accused of plagiarizing all or part of his commencement speech given at the recent RCS graduation ceremonies, and he has offered no defense, explanation or apology

  • The RCS Central School District Board of Education is bought and paid for, wholly owned now by the teachers union, New York State United Teachers, NYSUT, and taxpayers have lost all input in the operation of the schools.

In Ravena Coeymans there’s not a single village idiot; they’re all village idiots!

And still, again, something new comes up that convinces you that there’s just no end to the stupidity, the bare-faced craziness in this community. Small wonder that it’s hemorrhaging residents and businesses. Small wonder it’s the laughing stock of the entire region! If it isn’t creating special village fitness clubs for its political friends and handing them fitness centers together with salaries and benefits, if the judges aren’t violating the United States Constitution, if the Coeymans police department isn’t harassing, retaliating, intimidating residents and violating their civil rights, and if the village and town boards aren’t poisoning the air we breathe or the water we drink while playing Russian roulette with our lives and property, they find some stupidity to keep us on our toes. In Ravena-Coeymans there’s not a single village idiot; they’re all village idiots! But you’d think that RCS residents would smarten up!

Not Gonna Happen! Instead, residents just roll their eyes, shake their heads, and sometimes even show enough interest to shake their fists in the dusty Coeymans aire, when they read what we have to say and the facts we uncover. Truth hurts only when it ought to. Well here’s another one for you; read and weep:

On Monday, July 14, 2014, while driving along Route 9W we noticed a very large sign posted at the intersection of Rt 143 and Rt 9W in Ravena, probably the busiest intersection in the entire area. The sign is right in front of the now empty Crossroads garage, across from the RiteAid plaza. Now you know the sign is in a very, very visible position and can be easily seen by countless commuters, visitors, tradespersons, students, parents, etc. traveling both South and North on 9w and East and West on Rt 143. The sign is announcing a Brooks Bar-B-Q event and is embarrassing:

Show the entire world how ignorant you are, RCS! And you wonder why you're a laughing stock? You ask for it!

Show the entire world how ignorant you are, RCS!
And you wonder why you’re a laughing stock? You ask for it!

Hasn”t anyone seen this sign? Hasn’t anyone said anything to the people posting it? Where is the Ravena Village Board, the Coeymans Town Board, ANYONE? Where are the teachers, the board of education members on this one? Where are the parents? Don’t the students even notice? Maybe that’s why this RCS district is such a failure! Plenty of money to throw at the schools, plenty of corruption to fill the seats of the board of education, plenty of money to pay a superintendent to plagiarise a commencement speech but not a peep when the Ravena Grange “sponcers” Brooks Bar-B-Q. Let’s just hope they don’t “sponcer” a spelling bee any time soon! And who is the illiterate bumpkin at the Ravena Grange Hall who posted the announcement?

Now which of you geniuses wrote the text for the sign?

Now which of you geniuses wrote the text for the sign?

The fact that the sign is even there, still there and has been there for all to see proves one thing: You’re all ignorant and brain-dead, and you want the entire world to know it! You should be mortified that no-one until now has come forward to demand that the sign be corrected or removed!

Enjoy your Brooks Bar-B-Q. Or maybe you should invest what you’d spend on toxic food on a cheap dictionary. But then the Brooks Bar-B-Q fundraiser might be to raise funds to teach standard English spelling in RCS schools. Perhaps we’ve been too hasty?

Did RCS CSD Superintendent Alan McCartney Plagiarize 2014 Grad Speech?

Amid a small flurry of FaceBook exchanges it appears some parents believe that Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District interim Superintendent, Alan R. McCartney, may have plagiarized all or part of his RCS Class of 2014 commencement speech. Some even suggest that the 2014 graduation speech is substantially a repeat of McCarney’s 2013 graduation speech; that would mean that this is the second incident of plagiarism by the superintendent with an already stormy and shady past. What will the school district parents do? What will his special-interest-loaded board of education do? What will the Commissioner of Education do?

RCS CSD Superintendent McCartney Steals Yoda’s Laurels!

RCS CSD Superintendent Alan R. McCartney Receives an Very Generous Salary from the Taxpayers of this District. Wouldn’t you think he’d take the time to at least write an original graduation speech to send off the new graduates? Do RCS graduates now have to deal with the stigma of having their superintendent steal his material for their rites of passage into the adult world? There’s an old saying that the “Fish rots from the head down.” We re-live that saying every day in the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School Districts, don’t we?

Plagiarism_2

What is plagiarism? Plagiarism is defined as “To take and use as one’s own the thoughts, writings or inventions of another” (Oxford English Dictionary). Plagiarism therefore has two elements: (1) taking another’s work and (2)using the work as your own.

Several local residents have asked McCartney’s office for any recordings of the suspect speech and we have made a direct request to McCartney himself, putting a deadline for his response at close-of-business on July 3, 2014. The McCartney speech, it is alleged, used material from a speech published by one Jonathan E. Martin entitled “Yoda’s Teachings.” A parent attending the Class of 2014 graduation event felt there was something odd about McCartney’s speech and investigated further (see the extract from the parent’s FaceBook post on RCS Friends and More). In response to Mr Perrotte’s observations and conclusions other parents chimed in with their comments.

We have demanded a response from Mr McCartney and have notified all members of the RCS CSD board of education. We want this clarified NOW! Here’s what we wrote (Susan Starr is the clerk of the RCS CSD; McCartney’s e-mail address is not published):

Dear Ms Starr:
Please advise Mr McCartney urgently of this matter.
We urge you to respond immediately with any recordings of Mr McCartney’s 2014 graduation speech. It seems that a number of parents have expressed the concern that Mr McCartney may have purloined all or a substantial part of his graduation speech from an Internet source on the same subject, Yoda.
Unless we receive Mr McCartney’s explicit and express denial of such plagiarism together with a copy of any recording of the actual speech delivered at the 2014 RCS graduation event by no later than close of business (5 p.m. EST), we intend to publish the allegations and to prosecute Mr McCartney’s resignation.
Our interim publication of the allegations will note that we have made this demand; our final publication will reflect your response to this demand.
Please confirm receipt of this communication.
Assuring you of our best intentions,
 
The Editor
Smalbany Blog

We’d like to clear this up once and for all but to do that we need Mr McCarntney to either deny the allegations and to provide a recording of the speech he delivered at the RCS Class of 2014 graduation event OR to show convincing evidence that he gave credits for the allegedly purloined material used in his speech. We’d also like to remind our readers that such conduct by a person in McCartney’s position has resulted in resignation by the school official.

This is a preliminary report of the facts as of 10 a.m. on July 3, 2014. This report will be updated as we receive more information. If you have any information or a recording of the McCarney speech delivered on June 28, 2014, on the occasion of the RCS Class of 2014 graduation, please provide a copy to rcs.confidential@gmail.com as soon as possible.
