High Marks for the RCS Community Library

The RCS Community Library under the direction of Judith Wines is doing a pretty fantastic job of getting some really interesting programs out to the community. In fact, when requested, we published the public information on an unusual but apparently very interesting and needed program that’s found a home at the RCS Community Library, Thanatology Café, a program that offers the opportunity to talk about death, dying, grief, mourning and death-related subjects.

We’ve read a pretty nice post on the Thanatology Café blog that is complimentary of the RCS Community Library and it’s staff, and we really think RCS should take note of the fine work the RCS Community Library is doing for the community.

Our more than 300,000 readers know well that we have no qualms about being outspoken when it comes to our community and the Ravena News Herald, but truth be told the Ravena News Herald and editor Melanie Lekocevic apparently have been generously supportive of the library and the Thanatology Café program, if our observations are correct. Fair is fair and when the News Herald is on the up and up, we want to be the first to say Nice job! Thank you!

BUT…

Churches, Funeral Homes, First Responders

Churches, Funeral Homes, First Responders

We do have some disturbing information though and we have verified it factually. Here we have an innovative program, Thanatology Café, sponsored by a reputable and highly-respected community organization, the RCS Community Library, and even getting the support of the Ravena News Herald but WTF!!!!! We have information that about 100 information packets were sent out to local churches and public service organizations, including fire departments, EMS, first responders, and police departments, including the Coeymans fire and rescue squad, the Ravena Hose Company, and the Coeymans Police Department, just to name a few, and it appears none of those organizations responded.

Local churches have their hands out for stipends whenever a local dies but almost every church in the area does not offer a bereavement education, a death awareness, or death education program…

no handoutsWhat’s even worse is that the organizers (for the record the RCS Community Library hosts the program but does not organize it) invited local churches and pastors to announce the program and to post the attractive flyers to inform their congregations of the availability of the thanatology program, yet, according to the spokesperson for Thanatology Café, not a single one responded and there is no evidence that anyone from any of the local RCS churches bothered to attend the inaugural event. That does seem a bit strange to us and we’d like to hear from members of the congregations of local churches whether they even heard about the program from their so-called pastors. We find that strange because local churches have their hands out for stipends whenever a local dies but almost every church in the area does not offer a bereavement education, a death awareness, or death education program. We would think they’d jump at the opportunity to learn more about the program from the get go!

Why didn’t the local death businesses — Babcock Funeral Home, A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes, W.C. Brady’s Sons Funeral Home respond?

death-its-a-livingAnd you’d think that the local businesses that make a bundle of money from local deaths, Babcock Funeral Home and A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes, both right down the street from the library, would seize the unique opportunity to join in the death education opportunities offered by a program like Thanatology Café but apparently Sharon Babcock and the A.J. Cunningham staff had better things to do than join in a community educational program. We’ll be keeping an eye on our local death industry, you can be assured of that. Both Babcock Funeral Home and A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes were provided with special packets along with W.C. Brady’s Sons Funeral Home (Coxsackie) and several other regional funeral homes were provided with special packets and invitations. We have the documents and we have the questions, too, Why didn’t the local death businesses respond?

People are more aware, more interested and willing to discuss the subject, the options and the choices…death and dying, living wills, advance directives, and funeral and memorial options

We’ve done the online research and find that Death Cafes, Death Salons, discussion groups about death and dying, hospice and palliative care organizations, healthcare organizations, special interest groups dealing with infant death, suicide, traumatic death, etc. are thriving and growing because people are more aware, more interested and willing to discuss the subject, the options and the choices, and are not waiting til the last minute to learn as much as they can about death and dying, living wills, advance directives, and funeral and memorial options.

Are they scared that Thanatolgy Café might rock their comfy little boats…get people to ask the important questions?

Can our churches, first responders, funeral homes be so petty as to get involved in small-minded turf wars at your expense?

Petty, stupid turf wars?

Petty, stupid turf wars?

So we’re getting interested now, too, but especially why local churches, who are constantly preaching about death and whatnot, and local first responders and rescue squads, who frequently have to deal with death, and in particular, why the three main death businesses, Babcock Funeral Home, A.J. Cunningham Funeral Homes, and W.C. Brady’s Sons Funeral Home are so silent when an important program comes to the area. Are they scared that Thanatolgy Café might rock their comfy little boats, stir up some good and reliable information in the community, get people to ask the important questions? Maybe. We have learned that the Thanatology Café program will be providing a lot of information on pre-arrangements, available options and choices, how to go about creating your living will or Advance directive, funeral and memorial choices and recommendations, and much, much more. Stuff you need to know no matter what your age and information you’re not likely to get anywhere else.

we know where your head isDon’t you think you’d be getting a better deal from church, rescue squad, senior center and funeral home if they were better informed about death, dying, surviving, and the choices and options you should have? Can our churches and so-called pastors, our community funded first responders, local funeral homes, who cash in on the community’s ignorance and lack of information, be so petty as to get involved in small-minded turf wars at your expense? Looks like it. But keeping their heads tucked up a dark, wet spot won’t do them any good. Let’s hear from them. Let’s hear from our readers.

Town of Coeymans and Town of New Baltimore

Town of Coeymans and
Town of New Baltimore


Town of Coeymans

No, we haven’t gone AWOL on our watch. We’re working on a story about how the Phil Crandall/Youmans/Dolan mob are screwing town of Coeymans taxpayers. Didn’t we hear Phil Crandall say something about cutting the costs of local government, blah, blah, blah?

Well, apparently disgraced former village justice Phil Crandall, Psycho-bully Youmans and Dithering-Tom Dolan don’t think that cost containment applies to their cronies they imported when they took office. We’re talking specifically about the alleged overtime Crandall’s administrative clerk Nita Chmielewski is collecting hand-over-fist. It seems that old Nita is incompetent and doesn’t know what she’s doing — as if she ever did; nothing seems to change in the in-crowd in Coeymans — and she’s collecting a bundle for her incompetence and ignorance. Wonder if Mr Crandall, Mr Youmans or Mr Dolan can explain why their cronies get the overtime, while the Coeymans Police Department is consistently saving on costs, economizing, and coming in under budget under the professional supervision of a competent chief?

A contributor has demanded the production of certain documents that will prove the corruption in Coeymans town hall and the hypocrisy of Mr Crandall and his cronies

Stay tuned for the fireworks!


Town of New Baltimore

There’s word out that something’s cooking in New Baltimore about the New Baltimore Supervisor of Highways and the Highways Department and indifference, negligence and dereliction of duty and responsibility.

Thanks to the double-dealing of the Greene County Independence Party Committee chairman George Ackerman and co-chairperson, Irene Beede, and their mismanagement of a very worthy candidate, Mr Alan vanWormer in the elections last November, Denis Jordan was re-elected by a single — Yes! 1 vote! — and despite the known corruption, crookedness, incompetence and ignorance that is the hallmark of his department, he didn’t go to jail but kept his office. But that’s New Baltimore and screwy-Louie politics run by incompetent political committees.

Do you actually think YOU elect these bozos?

We have information that a pretty big law suit is in the brewing that will be brought against the town of New Baltimore, the New Baltimore Highway Department and Denis Jordan for incompetence, negligence, and indifference by dereliction of duty and violation of applicable state laws. Seems Jordan’s friends get all the highway department services while others get the finger, and can watch their property values collapse because of poor road and drainage maintenance.

A collaborator is getting the information together and talking to the aggrieved parties and we’ll be the first to release the information.

One crook is going to cost an entire town a bundle. Go figure!

AMBUSH! New Information on Coeymans vs Laraway!

We recently published an article about the town of Coeymans and another AMBUSH, this time on Carver Laraway, Give them enough rope and the Coeymans Board expose themselves, and later provided an UPDATE in our article, News Shorts to Keep You Updated…Briefly. In both articles, we exposed the town of Coeymans’ Code Enforcement Office’s pattern of AMBUSH on private citizens and businesses, and how the Coeymans Code Enforcement officers’ pattern of AMBUSH is an abuse of public office and an abuse of power. We suggested that there is a more sinister aspect to this pattern of AMBUSH, and it’s about time someone with Carver Laraway’s resources stepped forward to expose the Coeymanazi criminals for what they are: RATS.

After learning about the screw-job Carver Laraway received at the hands of the Coeymans Code Enforcement Office then they ambushed him by going behind his back to the Department Labor on a cooked up violation of sorts, we investigated the facts and found some interesting information, information that every resident of the town of Coeymans must be interested in. Here’s what we found:

unite against corruption
The Albany Times Union published a very inaccurate report on the incident involving the demolition of a derelict property at 84 Main Street in the hamlet of Coeymans. But what can you expect from the Albany Times Useless? We smelled a rat and so we started asking questions.

Initially, we had to put two-and-two together: the Crandallite board with its recycled rejects Dolan and Youmans. The firing of Laverne “Larry” Conrad from the position he held and abused for years as Coeymans Code Enforcement officer. The suspicious hiring of Larry Conrad by Carver Laraway as a consultant, after Conrad was fired by the new Coeymans board. Carver Laraway’s attempts to purchase derelict properties in the hamlet of Coeymans and the suspicious scandals that seem to arise, usually involving the Coeymans town hall. The conditions imposed on the purchase of 84 Main Street. The completed demolition of the building and THEN the suspicious involvement of the New York State Department of Labor and the stoppage of the work and issuance of a violation for some trumped up pretense.

[Editor’s Note: This is not a first-time occurrence of the town of Coeymans Code Enforcement office issuing permits, allowing a resident to complete the work covered by the permit, and then going behind the resident’s back and reporting a violation to a state agency with the issue of a violation against the resident! More on this later.]

Since the Times Union article raised the question of Who owns 84 Main Street? Well, we thought that would be a no-brainer. Why would there be any question of Who owns 84 Main Street? Certainly the town of Coeymans should know who owns the property! But the Times Union reported that the town of Coeymans was uncertain who owned the property! In fact, at a discussion at a recent public meeting of the town of Coeymans town board: it was a ping-pong match between the board members asking Who owns 84 Main Street? Well, wouldn’t the town Assessor know who owns the property? Would’t the Code Enforcement Office have to know who owns the property, in order to issue a Demolition Permit? Why would Carver Laraway be demolishing a building he didn’t hold title to? Or, if Carver Laraway was demolishing a building he didn’t own, he’d have to be doing that for the owner, Right? Well, nothing added up in this situation, so we decided to find out who owns the building.

To make a long story short, we visited the Coeymans town hall and asked to see the tax rolls. At first the property identification number couldn’t be found in the normal tax rolls, Mr Santee DeBacco, the Code Enforcement Officer on duty at the time of our visit, couldn’t provide any information, but one on-the-ball employee in the Town Clerk’s office found the property in the tax exempt properties, where it was shown to be owned by the town of Coeymans! Now WHY? wouldn’t the Code Enforcement Office or the Coeymans town board know this? Answer: Because they had something to hide. That’s why.

So we FOILed the relevant documents under the New York State Freedom of Informtation Law. We asked for: (1) All demolition permits issued for the past year, (2) All information regarding special conditions imposed on the sale of derelict or foreclosure properties in the town of Coeymans, and (3) All town of Coeymans laws, regulations and guidelines relating to asbestos containment.

First of all, the town of Coeymans produced NO documents relating to Coeymans laws, regulations and guidelines on asbestos containment. The hazards associated with asbestos in buildings and the connection between asbestos and life-threatening diseases like mesothelioma, a cancer of the lungs, have been known for decades. Literally dozens of buildings have been taken down in the town of Coeymans, most of them old and almost all of them containing asbestos in one form or another. But Coeymans has no laws, regulations or guidelines for asbestos containment. Your town government working for you. Bullshit!

So, since the town of Coeymans has no basis to screw with Carver Laraway while his crews are removing an eyesore from Coeymans Hamlet, the next best thing is to go to the State of New York —those whores will do anything to get a fine, and they’re corrupt as hell— which is exactly what the rats in Coeymans town hall did. They couldn’t cook up something so they let the state of New York do their dirty work for them, which the New York State Department of Labor, like the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is very willing to do, regardless of the facts and with no real interest in them either. State steps in and stops the work, which was pretty much done already, and issues a violation. And here is where it gets sticky.

Now remember that Larry Conrad, former Coeymans Code Enfocement officer, was fired by the newly elected Coeymans town board. Keep in mind that Larry Conrad was pretty cozy with Carver Laraway, while Conrad was Coeymans CEO, so cozy in fact that when Conrad was fired, Laraway hired him on as an “advisor.” That was Carver Laraway’s way of saying Thank you, Larry! for all the favors and support. Well, it wasn’t enough for Phil Crandall, Coeymans town supervisor, and his henchmen to just fire stupid old Larry, they followed him to Carver Laraway, and decided to kill a couple of turkeys with one shot.

The documents we received from the town of Coeymans show without a doubt that the town of Coeymans owns 84 Main Street in the hamlet of Coeymans, and owned the property while Laraway was demolishing it, and Coeymans still owns the property.

The town produced 11 demolition permits for the period of January 1, 2015 to February 1, 2016. Of those permits 5 were signed by Larry Conrad (for the period of February to December 2015) and 6 were signed by John Cashin, who was hired after Conrad was fired; Cashin signed the 6 permits issued in 2016 (5 in January 2016 and 1 in February 2016).

One of the permits issued on October 21, 2015, for the “Demolition of a Three-Family Dwelling. This dwelling has been deemed unsafe for occupancy.”, shows it to be property No. 168.12-2-3, located at 84 Main Street, Coeymans, and owned by the town of Coeymans. The permit is signed by none other than Larry Conrad. Carver Laraway is not mentioned anywhere on that Demolition Permit. Case closed! Coeymans owns the building!

We then examined the document provided by the clerk’s office regarding special conditions on the sale of derelict or seized properties in the town of Coeymans and Guess what we found there? The document is entitled: “NOTICE SEEKING OFFERS TO PURCHASE REAL PROPERTY” and is asking for “bids to purchase real property presently owned by the Town [of Coeymans].” The Notice states “the Town [of Coeymans] will provide the successful bidder with a Quit Claim Deed to the properties.” The Notice also sets forth the “terms” of the request for bids. The Notice has this to say about 84 Main Street:

84 Main Street, Coeymans, New York — Parcel #168.12-2-3. This is a three-family residence which is presently vacant, located on approximately .06 acres of land. the structure is unsafe. Therefore, the Town will require the successful bidder to tear down the building within 90 days of contract. Title will not be transferred until this condition is met. Proof of financial ability to perform the demolition must be established to the satisfaction of the Town

 So, there you have it. If the town of Coeymans provided all of the information required under the Freedom of Information Law, and did not hide anything, it is very clear that the town of Coeymans owns the property at 84 Main Street, Coeymans. What the documents do not answer is Why? town of Coeymans officials and the Coeymans town board would not admit that the town of Coeymans owns the property and Why? the Times Union published the false facts relating to the incident.

Well, it really shouldn’t come as a surprise because the Albany Times Union has always been a tool, a prostitute, serving special interests in the town of Coeymans and elsewhere, publishing anything that serves the liberal democrap agenda. This is no exception.

The same applies to the state of New York departments of Labor and Environmental Conservation. The record and history shows that at least those two New York state departments dance to the Coeymanazi tune. Larry Conrad, when he was Coeymans Code Enforcement officer was part of the machine but when he was fired by his enemies, he became the enemy.

We will be reporting on Larry Conrad’s involvement with a disgraceful AMBUSH on a local business and property owner. Again, Conrad was issuing permits, misleading the permit holder, and then going behind the permit holder’s back to the State Department of Environmental Conservation, to screw the permit holder. Conrad was good at doing favors for his Coeymanazi handlers. But now, it seems the shoe is on the other foot.

shoe on other foot

The conclusion that has to be drawn from the very documents provided by the town of Coeymans is that the town of Coeymans is the owner of the property at 84 Main Street in Coeymans. The fact is the rats in the Coeymans Code Enforcement office blew it when they reported Carver Laraway to their cronies at the state Department of Labor, who conveniently issued a violation and stopped the demolition work; the violation is or should be against the town of Coeymans, the real owners of the building and the ones responsible for the demolition or any violations. You asked for it Coeymans residents! We told you so! But you just had to put Phil Crandall, Tom Dolan, Jim Youmans back in public office so they could continue abusing you. You just love it, don’t you, Coeymans?

The town of Coeymans is still playing its stupid corrupt games. Again, they’ve been found out! Question is: When will anyone do anything about it…that is, other than us at Smalbany?

Return of the Scumbuckets! Coeymans Does It Again!

Coeymans Voters Showed that They Are Either Brain Dead or Slobbering Suckers

outraged not paying attentionBut How Can So Many People Be Crying About the Election Results if They Didn’t Vote for the Crooks? Something isn’t right in Coeymans!

The trash bags are back! Dithering Tom Dolan, a farce of a boardmember, caused a stir a couple of years ago when he was the subject of a scandal revolving around his tampering with absentee ballots from individuals receiving benefits from his Choices program in Ravena. Tom Dolan has been the subject of several scandals since then. Most recently he leaked a confidential Comptroller’s draft that his crony scoundrel Jim Youmans played to the hilt.

How quickly the residents and voters of the town of Coeymans forget that both Jim Youmans and Rick Touchette had been in public office but were dumped by Coeymans voters just about 2 years ago. They weren’t worth re-election then so what’s changed since? Only that they were involved in more scandals and unlawful conduct; is that what gets a democrap elected in Coeymans?

Well, the only thing that has changed is that they added another scandal to their list: Dolan, Touchette and Phil Crandall were all involved in the ticket fixing scam that forced Phil Crandall to resign from elected office in disgrace, never again to run for judicial office. All of them, Dolan, Touchette and Crandall were tight together and involved in getting and giving illegal favors that forced Crandall to resign from the judgeship! But you voted Tom Dolan and Rick Touchette back into office.  Even worse still, you put bully Jim Youmans back where you didn’t want him a couple of years ago! How can you do that, Coeymans?

Didn’t you read our factsheets on the candidates? Read them now and weep, stupids! Click here: What You Need to Know Before Voting on November 3rd.

Coeymans Voters Pumped Raw Sewerage into Town Hall! Dolan, Youmans, Touchette

On November 3rd Coeymans Voters Pumped Raw Sewerage into Town Hall!
Dolan, Youmans, Touchette

So what do Coeymans voters, morons that they are, do? They re-elect scoundrels to represent them and to govern the town of Coeymans. So what’s the plan here, people? You’re bitching that the town is going to the dogs. You make some progress in forcing two dirty cops, Dirty Hands Jerry Deluca and his dumpling Gregory Darlington into retirement. The police department is shining now, a real part of the community, saving money and working with the community. The town of Coeymans is in the black with the 2015 budget! And so you bunch of dullwits go and put a damper on it all by re-electing a dithering idiot loser, Tom Dolan, and then electing two known crooks and scoundrels, Rich Touchette and Jim Youmans. That’s just what the doctor ordered to fix Coeymans, people, a great police chief and an honest police department with crooks and bullies on the town board! Congratulations, you’re all now charter members of the DUMBASS CLUB.

How is it possible that Coeymans voters could put that crook Touchette in the Albany county legislature. He’s listed as one of the plaintiffs in a case that is trying to kill economic development in Coeymans; do you really think he’s going to do better in Albany? If he’s so great, why didn’t you re-elect him to the town board in 2013? Short memories or brain dead voters kill communities. You’re well on your way, Coeymans.

Apart from demonstrating that you’re all a bunch of terminal retards and dumb as a rock, the only other alternative is this: You’ve been had, Coeymans! Tom Dolan and his welfare parasites, the ghetto on the hill, sold their votes for benefits. That’s the only other way to explain this situation. It’s the only way a halfway sane community could possibly justify such dumbass election results: The Coeymans dumbocrap party used every dishonest and villainous trick in the book to get the votes they needed to keep Coeymans in the democrap strangle-hold and part of the democrat political machine run by the Albany democrat mafia. And that’s exactly what Tom Dolan and his democrap thugs did, in fact!

Dolan and Youmans show Coeymans voters what they have to offer.

Dolan and Youmans show Coeymans voters what they have to offer.

Coeymans, you really have to call for an investigation of this election. It couldn’t have been more crooked. No sane community could possibly have elected such a bunch of crooks, bullies and scoundrels without some unlawful help from the party leadership. This is outrageous and beyond suspicious!

COEYMANS VOTERS NEED TO DEMAND A RECALL, A REVOTE! SAVE YOURSELF COEYMANS!

Those of you who read this blog had all the information you needed handed to you! All of it from court records, the media, from reliable sources. We even provided you with links to that important information so you could send it to your friends and neighbors. SHAME ON YOU ALL!!! YOU DESERVE EVERYTHING YOU GET FROM YOUR CROOKS AND BULLIES YOU ELECTED, AND THEN SOME. WE’LL BE WATCHING AND HAVING A GREAT LAUGH AT YOUR IMBECILIC CHOICES.

NOW, YOU CAN EITHER SIMMER IN YOUR OWN PUTRID JUICES OR YOU CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. THE ALTERNATIVE IS TO LET BULLY YOUMANS, CROOKS DOLAN AND THEIR CONIES PLAY YOU ALL FOR THE FOOLS YOU PROVED YOURSELVES TO BE.

AND NEW BALTIMORE HAD BETTER KEEP VERY CLOSE TABS ON THEIR ELECTION RESULTS. REPUBLICANS SEEM TO THINK THAT PLAYING BY THE RULES WILL GET THEM SOMEWHERE; HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE THEM TO REALIZE THAT THE DEMOCRAPS DON’T HAVE ANY RULES. TIME TO GET THE ATTORNEYS INVOLVED.

It never ceases to amaze us how Ravena and Coeymans seem to wallow in their own sewerage — sometimes literally — when it comes to putting local wannabes and losers on the election ballots. This time around, though, the town of Coeymans seems to have outdone itself with its scatological selection of dolts, crooks, and recycled losers. What is wrong with Coeymans? Why is it Coeymans can’t find anyone to run without a laundry list of unlawful conduct, corrupt practices and outright crookery? Let’s have a look at what Coeymans has put on its plate of “Let’s have crow for dinner”.

Albany County & Coeymans Run A Bunch of Losers

Albany County & Coeymans Run A Bunch of Losers

Tom Dolan: We might as well start with this king of the loser wannabes. Dolan has a long history of non-performance but is a major backstabber waffler. Dolan is right there when the spotlight is on someone else and he’s ready to make some stupid comment he thinks will make him shine but only exposes his absolute ignorance and stupidity. But he’s chairman of the Coeymans democrap committee and he can choose and endorse democrap candidates for public office in the Coeymans communities. That’s sick!

Tom Dolan is Coeymans’ answer to Ravena’s Bill Bailey

Just his short-term history will give you an idea of who this vulture is: Remember Dolan’s voter registration scandal he created from his Choices program office? We do. He was allegedly using his position as director of the Choices program to “encourage” recipients to register a certain way-in support of Dolan’s ambitions, obviously. It was sort of buy-a-vote for benefits. Is that what we need in town government? Dolan was there for renaming Coeymans “Reubenville“; in other words he prostituted the town of Coeymans for a roast beef sandwich. He didn’t care how ridiculous it made the community appear. He got a fistful of coupons for free sandwiches (no record was ever kept of the hundreds of coupons and where they went). Actually, when we think of dithering dolts, Tom Dolan is Coeymans’ answer to Ravena’s Bill Bailey!

Dolan also lost his bid for a seat in the New York State Senate. It wasn’t just a loss, it was a political disaster.

Dolan and his cronies were key in selling out to Carver Companies and letting Carver Laraway rape the community, get tax breaks and make millions at the community’s and the environment’s expense. We’d like to know where the DEC and the EPA was when all that was going on; or where the DEC and the EPA are now that all of the crap is running into the Coeymans Creek. It sure makes a difference when and where the DEC and EPA show up when you have the likes of Tom Dolan, Larry Conrad, Jerry Deluca, Gregory Darlington and other vermin on your side, doesn’t it?


Is Laverne “Larry” Conrad, Coeymans Code Enforcement Officer, A Key Here?

Remember...

Remember…Time is running out.

It would be salvific if Mr Conrad, as he approaches death, were to consider confessing his involvement in so many corrupt and damning transactions and conspiracies; if Mr Laverne “Larry” Conrad were to come clean, seek absolution, and reconciliation with those, to whom he has caused so much suffering, he may find some redemptive merit in also bringing those whose guilt he shares, by exposing them, to seek forgiveness and peace. That would be a very meritorious Christian final gesture on Mr Conrad’s part, and a contribution to making this a better world before he leaves it, before he comes face-to-face with his creator and judge. How about it, Mr Conrad? If you want to schedule an appointment with a chaplain, just write confidentially to rcs.confidential@gmail.com.


The Carver, DEC, EPA, Coeymans Deals

The Carver, DEC, EPA, Coeymans Deals

And where are all those jobs that were created to convince the stupids in Coeymans and the corrupt EPA to give Laraway and his Carver Companies license to rape the environment and create new dangers for residents with increased heavy truck traffic and dust, Dust, DUST! Thanks Dolan!

Not only that, here we have Dolan’s own wife, My Lin Dolan, suing the town of Coeymans for a nose injury the clumsy cow sustained on town property. That’s how Dolan stewards the town of Coeymans’ interest: his wife sues the town. In a document dated September 1, 2015, from Dolan’s attorney to the Town of Coeymans, the town is served with notice of Dolan’s claim. Dolan’s response: Everyone has the right to sue. But that response doesn’t apply to everyone, of course.

But Dolan’s real failure is in his role as chairman of the Coeymans democrap party. All that Dolan could come up with is a handful of loser political recycles: Phil Crandall, Youmans, Touchette, and of course, Dolan himself.

Youmans, Crandall, Dolan, Touchette

Youmans, Crandall, Dolan, Touchette

The best way we can say is to be found in some “confidential” papers that we have acquired and go back to former judge Phil Crandall’s problems with the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct, and which resulted in Mr Crandall’s resignation from his elected judgeship after only two years on the bench (He was elected to be a Coeymans town justice and also served as a part-time village of Ravena justice alongside his backstabbing colleague, Harold “Hal” Warner, husband of village of Ravena village hall harlot Nancy Warner). (Read the Times Union report, “Coeymans town justice resigns amid charges“.)

It’s interesting to note that Crandall’s resignation was connected with favors he did for Dolan, Touchette and others while still a judge. Just as we’ve been writing and informing the community over the past 3 years, there are two classes of citizens in the town of Coeymans: those in the incest club and everyone else. As charter members of the Coeymans Incest Club (a.k.a. the Coeymanazis) Dolan, Youmans, Touchette and Crandall took care of one another and others until the water got too hot. You all know the saying, “No honor among thieves.” Well, the Dolan gang was living proof of the saying. Crandall may have done the favors but Dolan and Touchette certainly weren’t turning them down.

The examples we are providing below come directly from the Formal Complaint against Crandall filed with the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct and the “stipulation” of resignation in lieu of hearing signed by Crandall. By signing the stipulation Crandall agreed to resign all judicial offices he held and he also agreed never to run again for judicial office. You can certainly guess why he wanted to avoid a hearing at all costs, can’t you? If there were a hearing an awful lot of rats would be jumping ship or would be shipped downstate to enjoy the hospitality of the New York State Corrections system.

But All Three Freaks are Alive

But All Three Freaks are Alive

Charge I of the Complaint involves Crandall and Richard “Dick” Touchette’s son, Jeffrey, who was charged with failure to stop at a stop sign. According to the documents, Crandall met Tochette “at church” (“At church” no less! That could only be at St Patrick’s RC of Ravena. Talk about hypocrits!), where Touchette discussed with Crandall Touchette’s son’s pending court appearance. At the time, Gregory Teresi was village attorney, and his practice was to “plea bargain” friends’ tickets to parking tickets (a fine of $25.000, but that wasn’t good enough for Touchette or for Crandall, Crandall had it fixed to be an ACOD, adjourned in contemplatin of dismissal. The Commission found that to be in violation of the Constitution and in violation of Judiciary Law. In other words, Richard “Dick” Touchette, now running for County Legislature, unlawfully met with then judge Crandall to get his son’s moving violation fixed. Is Touchette or Crandall the kind of people we need in government? We say NO!

Charge II of the Complaint describes a second incident, and involves Crandall’s brother-in-law, James A. Albano, who was ticketed for an uninspected vehicle. Again, Gregory Teresi was involved. When Albano appeared in court, Crandall dismissed the charge. The Commission found that Crandall acted unethically and unlawfully by knowingly hearing the case of a close relative, his brother-in-law (Crandall is married to Albano’s sister), finding that Crandall granted a “lenient dispostion” to a relative, and so violated the Constitution and Judiciary Law.

Charge III of the Complaint involves candidate for re-election to the Town of Coeymans town council, Mr Thomas E. “Tom” Dolan, who is also Coeymans democrap committee chairman, who got Youmans and Touchette on the ballot! The Commission notes that Dolan was charged with and ticketed by a state trooper for speeding (78 mph in a 65 mph area). The case was to be heard in Coeymans court. The problem is Crandall should not have been involved to hear the case because Dolan was on the town council at the time and the Coeymans town council determined Crandall’s salary; there was a serious conflict of interest involved. Dolan appeared before Crandall and Crandall accepted Gregory Teresi’s “plea bargain” to change the ticket to a parking ticket ($25.00 fine). The Commission found Crandall guilty of violation of the Constitution and of Judiciary Law.

Coeymans seems to have outdone itself with its scatological selection of dolts, crooks, and recycled losers as candidates for public office!

clueless is no excuse

Charge IV of the Complaint involves Crandall misusing his judicial office to intervene in a dispute between local police-former chief Gregory “Duplin'” Darlington and Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca were all involved in this one. The Complaint reports that Deluca entered Crandall’s daughter’s, Jena Crandall, residence without a warrant and searched the place, which got Crandall’s “son-in-law”, Anthony Walsh, in a huff. Crandall improperly used his position as town judge to intervene and to try to get the Coeymans police to apologize to avoid a lawsuit. The Commission found this to be a violation of the Constitution and of Judiciary Law. Crandall misused is office to influence the police.

The papers include certified transcriptions of the telephone conversation between Crandall and Darlington, parts of which we found to be very interesting in terms of Crandall’s relationship with Mr Stephen Flach, Coeymans town supervisor. Somehow these statements don’t really make you comfortable with the guy’s character. Here are a couple:

CRANDALL: “…I think we can makethis all go away…This is all Steve Flach and his horde need to try to eliminate the police department again and I don’t want that.”
CRANDALL:–And I don’t want this. I don’t want any of this to go any further than here. I just want you to take care of it.”
DARLINGTON: “…And I don’t understand what — how this has to do with civil rights or Flach wanting to get rid of the police department.”
CRANDALL: “No, I’m just afraid. I’m afraid that he’ll use something like this with his dominions.”
DARLINGTON: “Mm-hmmm…”
CRANDALL: “He’ll pack a town board meeting and start raising hell, and I don’t want that.”
DARLINGTON: “Right.”
CRANDALL:”Because I want our police department.”
DARLINGTON: “Mm-hmmm…”
CRANDALL: “…Just think of how you would feel if this happened to your daughter or son-in-law.”

Well, having read the transcript, we can’t say we agree with Crandall, even if the Coeymans police department at the time was a bunch of ignorant, corrupt thugs. It appears that once the corruption was removed from the town court and from the police department, Mr Flach’s police department is running perfectly. We have a law enforcement professional in Chief P.J. McKenna who is doing a stellar job. The Coeymans police department is still there but it’s doing its job professionally. Any other questions Mr Crandall? Seems that was a very bad call, Mr Crandall. You lose again!

We have a law enforcement professional in Chief P.J. McKenna who is doing a stellar job

We also have some off-the-record information from the village of Ravena. It seems that former mayor John Bruno wanted Phil Crandall to be a village/town justice so that he, Crandall, could be elected to be Coeymans town supervisor. Apparently, Bruno and his minions felt that if Crandall were elected to that position, the village would have a chance to take over Coeymans. The plan sounds so crazy its believable given the history of Bruno’s minions, Nancy Warner, Hal Warner, Kathy and “Dirty-Hands-Jerry” Deluca and the Darlingtons, and their minions!

Here we have local elected officials conspiring together to abuse the trust the public put into them when they were elected. They’re asking for and getting favors from insiders, something none of us can do. But these are just a couple of the incidents. We’ve already published information on local officials getting special favors for their kids’ drug and vehicular offenses from the Deluca-Darlington police department and from local judges. Cathy Deluca lied to a police investigator (Jason Albert) and obstructed justice, misdemeanors at least, but the Deluca-Darlington police department refused to investigate.

While former Ravena mummy-mayor Bruno and Nancy Warner may have been prepping Crandall to be Coeymans town supervisor, Crandall obviously gave favors to the wrong people and his own turned on him (Hal and Nancy Warner), forcing him to resign or go to hearing. A hearing was out of the questions because it would have opened the floodgates for investigations into Ravena government and the cat would have hit the fan.

You can make all the excuses you want for Crandall but the bottom line is that he’s unfit for elected office as Coeymans town supervisor.

That brings us to Tom Dolan and his picks for democrap candidates, Dick Touchette and Youmans. Touchette was a member of the Coeymans town board in 2011 but lost his bid for re-election in 2011. He campaigned alongside Crandall in 2011. Touchette lost the election in 2011. Our question is what has changed to make Dolan think this community wants the likes of Touchette back in 2015? Is that the best democrap chairman Dolan can do for Coeymans is to offer another loser to the community for election? So, when Youmans and Touchette lost the elections, they decided they would retaliate by pushing to terminate health benefits for elected officials! Of course, Mr and Mrs Crandall backed them all the way. They’re an example of the good church-goin’ Christian hypocrites swarming at St Patrick’s RC in Ravena!

Dolan, Crandal, Youmans, Touchette, Masti, Miller

And isn’t it odd that John Bruno (former mayor of Ravena), Phil Crandall (former village and town justice), “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca (former Coeymans cop), Cathy Deluca (former 3x failed healthclub manager), Gregory Darlington (former Coeymans police chief), Gregory Teresi (former village attorney), Joseph Teresi (former NYS court judge) were all shown the door at about the same time. Is there some connection with “Leave or Go to Jail”? Did those exits signal an end to decades of corruption? How is it that Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares has lasted this long? He should be the next dumpy dolt to go!

In an article several months ago, we informed our readers that Touchette is director of the diocesan cemeteries. Look around Ravena and Coeymans; they’ve turned into virtual graveyards. Maybe Mr Dolan wants a professional graveyard manager in office so that cemetery management principles can be applied to Ravena and Coeymans, to Albany County. Well, so far Mr Touchette and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany haven’t managed any resurrections in the graveyards so we don’t have very high hopes that Mr Touchette, if elected to the Albany County Legislature, will be very successful in bringing life back to dead communities. Or does Dolan simply want Touchette to manage the county and our communities like a big cemetery? It’s really scary but then its Halloween time, isn’t it? No thanks, Mr Dolan, Mr Touchette!

The Touchette Touch

The Touchette Touch

More examples of how Dick Touchette is a slippery worm: Does anyone remember back in 2008, the Town of Coeymans had received a Small Cities Grant in the amount of $750,000.00 and Mr Touchette, then town councilman Touchette, moved to refuse the grant. Mr Youmans, then town councilman Youmans, seconded the motion. Coeymans didn’t receive the money. Thanks Mr Touchette and Mr Youmans.

Does anyone remember the recent lawsuits brought against the town of Coeymans, Coeymans Recycling, TCI, D. Trickey brought by Clearwater, Coeymans Heritage Society, and several citizens. Richart Touchette was one of those going after the town of Coeymans and the other defendants in that lawsuit. Apparently Mr Touchette got cold feet and lost his environmental principles when Mr Dolan approached him to run for office and but his name stayed on the list of plaintiffs. Talk about a major waffler! Richard “Dick” Touchette has no balls when it comes to sticking with the issues. But one thing is abundantly clear, our resident cemetery manager, Dick Touchette, is against anything that will bring prosperity or apparent prosperity to Coeymans. He and Youmans killed the small cities grant and Touchette and his mob are trying to kill jobs in Coeymans. Well, what would you expect from Dick Touchette — all he knows is managing cemeteries and is more familiar with dead things.

ani_rotating skull

Wouldn’t it be better and make more sense to just rally residents to enforce environmental vision and public safety through local government and demanding that the EPA, DEC, and Corps of Engineers do their business fairly and uniformly, rather than being tools of corruption, killing local small businesses? Yeah. That might take some integrity and some balls, and none of the democrap candidates have that equipment.

Yup

Yup! I’m a waffler, a ball-less wonder!
Yes, I am.

(Touchette & Youmans)

And what about Jim Youmans? Another big-time loser. Youmans took office when firebug Henry Traver was indicted for arson and had to resign from the office of Coeymans town supervisor. Legend has it that Youmans was such a vile jerk that during executive session poor Henry Traver had to have the Coeymans police on site in order to ensure that Youmans didn’t hurt someone (probably Henry). Youmans is a really poor excuse for an electable candidate. His inability to be a team player and the fact that he’s a schoolyard bully are big negatives and should keep him out of public office. And did you know that Youmans is a used car salesman? Really! He’s a used car salesman and we all know the reputation of the legendary used car salesman, don’t we? Well, Youmans gave the used car salesman of jokes galore the poor reputation they have. Do we need a used car salesman on the town board? Or the likes of Youmans? Hell NO!

Well, there you have it in a nutshell. The democrap choices for local government. Mr Dolan has no record to speak of except failures and absolutely no skills in town government. He’s proved also that he is a failure when it comes to choosing candidates for the democrap slate this November. We’ve shown above that Dolan’s choices have all been on the take in the past. What’s worse still is that Dolan’s democrap loser’s club are exactly those characters who played roles in exposing Coeymans supervisor candidate Phil Crandal’s corruption. What more needs to be said?

Well, there is more and that more is about “Matt-the-Mutt” Miller’s bid for election to the Albany County Legislature. We have a lot to say about that weasel’s arrogance and corruption and his history of abuse of his teacher’s job, his double-dipping, his questionable allegiances, and his overall crookery and corruption. It’s unimaginable that he would have any support in his bid for election but that support is likely coming from NYSUT, the teachers union. Matt Miller is the union’s bitch in RCS. He’ll be the teachers union’s bitch in the Albany County Legislature, where he’ll continue is unethical practices and corruption. More on the “Mutt”in our next article.

Blacks and Wimins Can’t Drive; Black Wimins Can’t Park (Won’t Park Legally)

animated_update_smallon our exposé of corrupt local dentists (in Greene county, NY): We are informed that our efforts and support of a reader who was a victim of Coxsackie Dental Arts, “Dr” Kurt Froehlich, have paid off. The reader’s credit card company has found in favor of the patient and has denied CDA and Frohlich payment, crediting the amount back to the patient. CDA and Froehlich can appeal the credit card company’s decision within 45 days, but Froehlich still got to deal with possible court action and possible investigation by the insurance company and the Greene County DA and NYS Attorney General for possible fraud for double-billing, billing the insurance company for services never rendered, and trying to collect from the patient!


Back to our main story:

Yeah! It’s an awful statement of a stereotype because it’s not true everywhere and always; in other words, it can’t be generalized to the entire population. But if people don’t like stereotypes or don’t like being forced into a stereotype, why do they insist on acting out the stereotype and giving it new life?

It’s An Election Year, A Big One! Shouldn’t Our Politicians Be Answering These Questions?

Do your part to put an end to “Sanctuary Cities” that ignore the law. Sign the petition at “Senate Must Act on Sanctuary Cities“.

Here’s an example from one of our readers:

Why does (it shouldn’t) color allow you to be inconsiderate, unsafe, uncivil, violate the law?

“Dear editor,
“I thought you’d enjoy this.
I shop at the Glenmont Pricechopper and sometimes use the BankAmerica ATM next door. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen vehicles parked in front of the BankAmerica facing the wrong direction and forcing buses and other vehicles to go around them, risking a mishap in the oncoming lane.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had the pleasure of noting that almost all of those lazy, inconsiderate scofflaws were “persons of color“, actually blacks.
“Today, I got a taste of “stereotype” behavior all of the PC correct whities are so careful to avoid noticing.
“I stopped and parked properly in the parking lot across from the ATM and noted a minivan type vehicle parked directly in front of the ATM on the wrong side of the street, facing oncoming traffic. A bus and a couple of cars had to maneuver around it to continue their trips. When I crossed the street I must have shot it a displeased look (no one was inside), but when I entered the ATM lobby, a black woman with alien locks was looking at me and says, “I saw that judgmental look at my car.” I couldn’t believe my ears. I responded, “It’s parked illegally and forcing people to go around it. Can’t you park properly?” She then launched into a tirade only a black could do to a white person, yelling that she saw my “judgmental look” at her car, and who did I think I was. I told I was the one obeying the law and parking properly and that she should save her paranoia for someone else. So she tells me to go “fuck” myself to which I responded, “Bitch! Get your money and leave so I don’t have to share this space with you.” She again told me to “fuck” myself.
Imagine if I, a whitie, started off on her like that and spoke to her like that. Or if I parked like that? Wonder if the Bethlehem Police would have ignored the white boy doing that?
Just thought you’d enjoy this after seeing “Black lives matter” until I want to puke!”
Thanks! You can print this if you want. It’s all true.
[Name withheld at author’s request.]

Before you get all self-righteous and politically correct, let us just agree on one point before you read on: This post is not about hate or racism or anything like either. This is a post that very clearly and honestly looks at a situation and how it came to be what it is. Very few of our readers will be able to deny having a similar experience. So let’s get on with it.

Another reader writes about his/her experience when attempting to get a price on a simple sewing job:

This is the place! Just look at those prices! Why is he charging those prices? Because he can!

“I read your blog about the dentists and I thought you’d be interested in this recent experience. [Editor’s Note: The reader is referring to our recent article, “Local Dentists. Are you being abused, taken for a ride in the chair?“, in which we discuss local dentists, especially Coxsackie Dental Arts (Kurt Frohlich) and Marvin Gertzberg (formerly of New Baltimore Family Dentistry), and their scams.]

“I had a small sewing job I needed done and figured I’d try a smallish place that had put up some signs at the four-corners in Glenmont, feeling it’s better to support a local small business than go to one of the larger establishments. It was a disappointing experience but taught me a great lesson in where we are in this country.

“I walked in and stood there watching a middle-aged man of color fussing with some garments. He didn’t say a word, or even look up at first but after a minute or two he came over and said, “What can I do for you.”

“I explained what I wanted done–seemed really simple since all I felt needed to be done was slip the thing under the sewing machine needle and stitch the material, that’s all I was asking for.

“The man started a mini-course in sewing and how this needed to be done and that had to be done. I clarified that all I wanted was for him to stitch the material. He continued, telling me that he charged for every 15 inches; there was a charge for every 15 inches of stitching. He continued by telling me that this length would be $45 and this another about $30, etc. until I was completely mindboggled that this job was already more than $100. I told him that if it was more than $25 I just was not going to have do it. I jokingly said I could get a surgeon to stitch for less money, and that he should be a doctor.

“Well, the little man then got downright insulted and told me that I was “rude and being smart,” for making such a comment. He told me that every profession has its rates of charge and that I was “ignorant” for not knowing that. I was shocked at his attitude and left saying, “Have a nice day and good luck, you’ll need it.”

“For your information if you want to print it, I’m talking about
Delmar Custom Tailor & Cleaners

(518) 475-0883.

“P.s. I’m white middle class, well educated, a decent person and well-liked, and I don’t feel I deserve this sort of treatment from anyone, white or of color.

“P.p.s. Several days after this experience, I was at Joanne’s in Northway Mall and they recommended a local seamstress, formerly a manager at David’s Bridal, who does wedding gowns and custom clothing. I called her and described what I needed done, she asked me to make and appointment to come to her shop to show her. We met. She did the work beautifully for $20.00!!! Less than 1/5th of what that nasty little man wanted to charge. I guess his customers from Elsmere and Delmar have more money than dignity or brains.”

We found it! Around the corner from Romo's Pizza!

After all, immigrants can come here and take advantage of the “market economy,” but oddly they’re not subject to our laws, or our customs, or our ethics. But they have rights.

We’re not singling out Delmar Custom Tailor & Cleaners but this guy is a good example of what we are talking about when we talk of retroracism and abuse of the white foundation of this country. Rather than be tolerant and tactful, this immigrant chose to be arrogant, abusive, and disrespectful. He seems to have forgotten that in his own native country he probably wouldn’t be earning in a month what he charges now to shorten a pair of trousers! But is the little troll grateful? No! He, like so many others, leaves the squalor and corruption of their native countries to take advantage of the let-me-kiss-your-colored-ass-please juicebags of this country. Why is it we’re such pushovers?

All of the great nations, empires of history, were very careful to secure their borders and to take care of their own.Why is it this country lets the homeland spiral into depravity and opens its borders to let every parasite imaginable cross over and infest this country? Forget about the crapola we’re being fed by the ass-kissing liberals that this country was founded on the contributions of immigrants; they were an immigrant of a vastly different kind, they had values, morals, and a work ethic. Anyone who has had great grandparents who come to the United States LEGALLY can attest to that fact. We now have immigrants who make a joke of our federal laws and cities and states that aid and abet their criminality.

“White lives count!”

Yes! They do!

We are all born into a native culture; some people have moral and civil values, others do not. Some people are born into a loving, caring and nurturing family others are born into a vicious cycle of abuse. Some people are poor but dignified others are trash. We have white trash, Black trash, Oriental trash, and just trash trash. You can decide for yourselves where you fit in. One thing is certain, though: each and every one of us has the freedom and the liberty to be better and not simply be lazy and go with the flow. It just happens that some people are born into ignorance and prefer to stay ignorant; same applies to trash.

So when we look at what’s going on in this country, it’s all about choices: What you choose to do and what you choose to be. Simple.

I have the freedom and the liberty to choose and I choose not to accept the behavior…

Here’s an example: Today, we made a rare trip to Walmart in Glenmont. There was quite a variety of types there ranging from trashy to middle-class, and you could see right then and there that you are born into a culture, you are raised in that culture and you’re likely to stay in that culture and raise your children in that culture. I thought about this when I passed a very loud group of 4 persons, including two small children. Yelling, banging, the boom box was blasting. One couldn’t help thinking “stereotypes.” There is a reason for stereotypes and the reason is that the stereotypes perpetuate the stereotype. Does that make us, the others, evil or unjust for admitting that they created the stereotype, and we are just acknowledging it. It wasn’t us that created the behavior that pegs them for what they are, and puts them in the box labeled “whatever.” So why get all in a huff when someone honestly admits that they’re what they are: stereotypical of their group. Why? Because they like it there; they have no desire to leave their place in the world. Does that make them bad people? Not at all. But I don’t need them setting the conditions for how I live, or for invading my space with their behavior. I have the freedom and the liberty to choose and I choose not to accept the behavior; I also choose to admit that it exists and not to live in denial.

We’re just plain sick and tired to the point of puking when we have to listen to all the talk of “racism” even by our racist president, Mr Obama, who is quick to play the race card when it comes to a white-on-black issue but is eerily silent when it comes to the execution-style shootings of our law enforcement people. We’d like to start a counter-movement, “White lives count!”

They use any excuse to destroy and to use racism as an excuse for criminality!

Anyone who watches the antics of the carjackers and the other urban criminals can form their own opinions. There was a video of a car-chase and then an on-foot pursuit of a [black] perp the other day just in the wake of the execution-style shooting of a law-enforcement officer, in the wake of the shooting of a state trooper, in the wake of the on-air execution of two talk-show hosts, in the wake of the shooting of two police officers, and the list goes on. Does anyone dare mention the color of the perps? The media doesn’t have the balls to say “black” but the majority–we say the majority because in a couple of the instances no arrest has been made and we haven’t seen the pix of the perps (the media tends to avoid mentioning color or, in some instances, even showing a picture of the perpetrator(s)–were, Guess what? blacks. Not Hispanic, not Chinese, not Asian, not Native American, not Irish; read our lips BLACK! And we don’t mean African black! We mean American Blacks; the product of American Black culture. The same ones that will use any excuse to destroy and to use racism as an excuse for criminality! How long do you think the self-deception, the denial, the blindness of mainstream America is going to go on before it reaches the flash point and a reaction occurs?

Racism? The American people are kept in the darkest of dark closets when it comes to the truth about racism, slavery. Anyone with any knowledge of American history cannot avoid the example of the indentured servant, or non-landed whites, or women in this country. Much of that discrimination didn’t change until the 20th century!

White people can’t save Black people from themselves!

At some point in time people have to choose to stop being victims and stop riding the same old hackneyed slogans to death. White people can’t save Black people from themselves. Black people have to take charge and clean up their own acts, clean up their own neighborhoods, create new, more positive stereotypes of themselves. It’s about time someone admitted that.

And has anyone done the history of the Italian, Irish, even Catholic Americans in this country. Did you know that plenty of Italians and Irish were LYNCHED because they were Italians or Irish! Look it up, you ignorant liberal asskissers. In the West, until the 20th Century, Chinese and Sikhs, for example, were discriminated against and their property confiscated violently. What about the Japanese and German concentration camps IN THIS COUNTRY? Anyone talk about racism in those contexts? Why not?

And so we have people up in arms about closing our borders to illegal penetrations. This country is sick, sick, sick and it is refusing treatment. If you talk about closing our borders and enforcing our laws, you’re un-American! If you talk about deporting illegals you’re un-American! If you say fix the problems in the United States, wash the shit off your own porch before you screw up other countries and cultures, you’re un-American.

The number of jurisdictions with sanctuary policies for illegal aliens have risen to an estimated 340 from 276 in July, according to an updated CIS study. The refusal of local authorities to give custody of deportable criminal aliens to ICE has resulted in the release of around 1,000 criminal aliens per month. (Excerpt from: Santuary Cities…Releasing Thousands of Criminals). Do your part to put an end to “Sanctuary Cities” that ignore the law. Sign the petition at “Senate Must Act on Sanctuary Cities“.

Tell them to go the hell home and save their countries rather than abandoning them!

We have a question we’d like you to think about: Say you go to Canada for the weekend. You get into Canada using your American passport, driving a vehicle legally registered in New York, you don’t speak with an accent. But when you want to get back into the United States from Canada, using your American passport, driving a vehicle legally registered in New York, and you haven’t picked up an accent in Canada, you a put thru a third degree? It’s almost like you’re being punished for going to Canada and then trying to get back into the United States? Makes you wonder how so many Mexicans get into the USA over the border, doesn’t it?

So doesn’t it come across like a little hypocritical, a lot really stupid when the United States is telling Hungary and other European nations to open up their borders and let the Syrian refugees flow in? Yeah! Misery likes company and if the US has it’s Mexicans why shouldn’t Europe have its Syrians? Our advice: Tell them to go the hell home and take responsibility for saving their countries rather than abandoning them, and playing the rest of the world for suckers!

The United States government is doing more spying on YOU than on ISIS!

We even hear people saying that they don’t travel anymore because of the hassle they get at the airports by goons in uniform. Is there a plan in the works here? If regular people are abused enough they will avoid moving around too much. If they’re abused by mindless monkeys, they feel violated and who wants to go through that? Do you see a plan here?

All of you blind bastards reading this diatribe had better open your eyes and recognize the fact that we don’t deport illegal aliens because they are VOTES for those in power. We don’t call a criminal black because they are VOTES for those in power. (We also don’t call them black because they behave like animals and everyone is scared shitless of what they might do. You asked for it America! You sure as hell got what you asked for!) And we don’t spend more time fixing the United States because the corporations see untapped wealth in the Middle East and elsewhere and the only way they can get to it is by using the United States Government = their paid lackeys to do it for them. Look, if the corporations are going to profit by the military actions the United States government gets bogged down in, and United States military personnel come back dead, maimed, or otherwise physically or mentally damaged, it’s the corporations that should pay for the damage, not the American people. Our military is not protecting our freedoms and liberties, people, WAKE UP! In fact, our own government is erasing our freedoms and liberties on a day-to-day basis and you don’t even realize it. The United States government is doing more spying on YOU than on ISIS!

Don’t you feel manipulated? Don’t you feel like it’s time to reclaim your brain, your mind, your soul?

We’d rather not get started on the media and prime time programming, but we have to say something about it just to be fairly complete. You are told what to think. You are told who to listen to. You are told what to eat and drink. You are told you are damaged goods and need this or that drug. You are told by your boss you can’t say “fuck” in the workplace but turn on the television or open a magazine like “Men’s Health” and you can hear and read the word or worse almost regularly. You’re a dog or a whore if you jump into bed with a different gal or guy every day but it seems afternoon soaps tell you it’s OK. Two men kissing and boinking are OK on the soaps, too. Don’t you feel manipulated? Don’t you feel like it’s time to reclaim your brain, your mind, your soul? The media are stealing your mind and your soul and you just let it happen! If someone did that with your wallet or your purse, what would you do to reclaim just a couple of bucks or credit cards? But you let media corporations steal something much more valuable and irreplaceable: your soul and your children’s souls, and you do nothing!

Shame on you, America! You’ve become homeless and have prostituted your values.

And YES! it would be a terrible stereotype if it weren’t TRUE and FACTUAL!

Stay tuned for our exposés of local politicians and their bids for election. We’ll be exposing Matt Miller (another corrupt crook for the Albany County Legislature?), Touchette, Youmans (hopefully with his arrest record), Dolan in Albany County, and of course Mr Flach opposed by Mr Crandall. And in Greene County Denis Jordan (Stupid, crooked, corrupt, and not a team-player but still seeking re-election to Highway Superintendent), Arthur Fullerton (He has already been exposed for lying and misinformation in his campaign! running for town of New Baltimore Supervisor. <GAG!>), Delisanti (No balls but what’s the alternative? He’s seeking re-election as town of New Baltimore Supervisor). We’re going to have some great fun with this bunch of monkeys!

RCS Communities Mourn a Special Son

On July 20, 2015, suddenly, unexpectedly a special son of the RCS community for more than 75 years was summoned home; a colorful, memorable, well-liked, loved and respected member of the RCS community, Rodney A. Krzykowski, died but he left an American legacy and true meaning for those of us who are still able to know the American pioneer spirit when we see it. Rodney will be truly missed by many of us. He should be missed by all of us.

In fact, you can thank Rodney Krzykowski for this Blog! This very blog owes its existence to Rodney Kryzkowski. Think back to 2012, when the crooks, conspirators and special-interest lackies (James Latter, Howard Engel, Alice Whalen, Joe Tracey, Josephine O’Connor, Matt Miller, the RCS Sports Association, and the nefarious Delucas, Cathy and Dirty-Hands Jerry) were ambushing and backstabbing, and lying their way into controlling the RCS school board and the $42,000,000+ budget. This blog was started to defend Rodney and to expose the crooks and conspirators for what they were. That was three years ago and we’re still going strong, thanks to Rodney and the raw deal the crooks were handing him.

RodneyK_FrameRodney Krzykowski was a man of few words but those words held incredible meaning. He was an honest man, a man who shot from the hip with deadly accuracy, as many of the members of the RCS board of education, like Mr James Latter, Mr Howard “Bray” Engel, Ms Alice Whalen and others too numerous to name, learned very quickly and have the scars to prove it. Rodney was intelligent and did the math before he opened his mouth, unlike the current Latter board, and when he spoke, he made sense; he never learned double-speak.

Rodney embodied a very rare pioneer spirit and didn’t have very much use for government or the crooks government seems to attract and feed. He was brilliant when it came to researching even arcane subjects and doing his homework. Unlike most of our elected officials and public employees, Rodney thrived on intellectual challenges;if it was out there, he’d find it, and when he did Watch out! Town of Coeymans. Most of the local sheeple tended to condemn him on unsubstantiated misinformation spread by the local incest clubs. Surprised? Unlike Rodney, everyone else had something to say about his politics but none of them really knew anything at all about him or his politics. We did, though, and we must admit that he was on to something, not a fanatic or an anarchist, but a true crusader, a man whose principles guided him, and a man who thumbed his nose to ass-kissers and clique-members. When you spoke to Rodney, you had an instinctual perception that the man was special, honest, had a pioneer integrity that is almost extinct these days.

dove with olive branch

Rodney was a mechanical genius. He loved his cars and he loved racing them. Yes, Rodney raced stock and modified his cars himself, frequently creating machinery to get a job done. If something needed customizing he could conjure up an apparatus to do it. Makes you wonder that he never went the patent route with his creations; the man could have been a millionaire.

Yes, he could have been very comfortable but he preferred to remain simple and work for what he had. If you knew Rodney, you would have to agree with us that you would find it very difficult to find anyone who was a harder worker than he. The man never stopped.

Whether with friends — he was always welcome in many local homes — hanging out in local automotive shops, or at the Medway Café, where you could find hm regularly, he was quiet, minded his own business, but was always available if you wanted to chat. In fact, there was no one still living who knew more about local property histories, businesses, families, and government than Rodney Krzykowski. If you needed to know anything about the property that is now the Port of Coeymans or Don Trickie’s escapades, you’d ask Rodney. He could tell you what was there, what’s still there, who put it there and, if it’s not there anymore, where it went.

tail between legs_looking rightRodney was also an avid history buff and could talk your ear off about the Constitution, the developmental history of taxation, property laws, and the list goes on. He scared the living bejeebers out of local officials, lawyers, judges, because they were ignorant of most of what Rodney had spent years researching. Most local officials rely on an ignorant community and they have their way with the poor bastards; Not with Rodney K! He’d send those dirty dogs packing with their cruddy tails between their legs. We need more Rodneys to keep things kosher in town and village halls.

Rodney owned a tavern and most recently RAK Tire Recovery and the former R.K. Winners Circle. He was not only a businessman and entrepreneur but active in community organizations, too. He was a member of the Ravena Grange and the County Grange and was elected to serve on the RCS board of education. He even raced stock cars at Lebanon Valley for many years.

Rodney was a self-made man, a good man, a generous friend. We are deeply saddened by the way his death was hushed by his family, and how his community was deprived of the opportunity to grieve his death, how Rodney’s friends and admirers were deprived of the opportunity to mourn the loss of a friend and model citizen. We were outraged by the pitifully scant obituary that was tucked away, almost invisible, in a Sunday Times Union. Rodney deserved better, much better. In fact, quite a number of Rodney’s friends and acquaintances were shocked and offended that he was disposed of like a box of old newspapers. A number of those friends and acquaintances even offered to chip in a couple of hundred dollars each to cover a proper viewing and funeral but Rodney’s daughters allegedly wanted to make quick work of it all — the Babcock Funeral Home of Ravena (NY) — a real monopoly in the Ravena area, big prices small productions — , known for its sloppy service, probably didn’t do much to help the general situation.

But the well-hidden, cheapo obituary did announce that Rodney’s memorial service was to be held on

Saturday, August 1, 2015
at 11:00 a.m. at the
Trinity United Methodist Church
Coeymans Hollow

We hope that everyone who knew Rodney will be there to show their support for this fine man, and to show that true American pioneer spirit still has a place in our decrepit culture. Let’s see how Trinity United Methodist will manage to appropriately and fittingly celebrate Rodney’s life; are they up to the task? (See Editor’s Note.)

Editor’s Note: The turnout at Trinity United Methodist Church for Rodney’s memorial service was standing room only. Rev. Meager rushed the actual service a bit and the hymns could have been a bit more energetic but overall the event was a fine tribute. The Grange did a beautiful tribute, and the eulogies spoke only well of Rodney and his contributions to the community. It was a proper tribute to a fine man, and we’d like to thank the community for showing up and doing Rodney proud.

Rodney,
You grew in wisdom, age, and grace and learned through suffering.
May the Lord bless and keep you.
May choirs of angels welcome you and lead you into paradise,
May the martyrs come to welcome you
and take you to the holy city,
the new and eternal Jerusalem,
where you may find respite in the bosom of Abraham;
where Lazarus is poor no longer,
where every tear is wiped away.

There may you find eternal peace.

StJohnsAshfield_StainedGlass_GoodShepherd

We’ll remember you, Rodney.
