Another “When Lady Liberty Weeps” Feature

What Is Going On In these United States of Suppression and Tyranny?

Are You Ready To Be
Bound and Gagged?

While Our Local Officials Are Holding Secret Meetings Planning Projects and Spending Your Tax Dollars Without Public Input, Our State and Federal Elected Self-Servants Are Busy Making Certain YOU Stay Silent! How Long Are YOU Going To Keep Quiet?

(Remember when I wrote on this blog about scoundrels taking kids hostage to ransom them for a vote? Well, here’s another example of concealed tyranny. These scoundrels in the legislature are stealing your rights by telling you “It’s for the kids!”  Sound familiar? You swallowed it last time, are you ready to choke on it this time, while you’re being gagged?]

We thought you all would like this information.  Think about this: you  might never get another letter to the editor printed or a blog comment published, much less a blog!  

Jim Conte, a New York Republican, has declared himself an enemy of the First Amendment and the Constitution. He is pushing the so-called Internet Protection Act, legislation that would make it illegal to post anonymously on the internet under the guise of protecting children who are victims of “cyber bullying.”
 
Call up these REPUBLICAN State Senators and tell them how you feel about restrictions on the internet.

Do it NOW before you CAN’T any longer!

Speak Out While You Still Can!

Oh! By the way: When you’re crucifying the sovereign citizens in the community think about what you’ve lost and are losing while you’re distracted by the propaganda being put out by your “democratic” government! You, too, were once sovereign citizens until your rights and privileges were slowly eroded away by your “all-American, patriot, democratic” state and federal representatives, and while your were sucking up to your lying, self-serving local nazi bands!  Just like you enjoy the free speech in your local community, right? Have you ever thought of yourselves as a bunch of lemmings following your leadership off a clff!

As You Plunge Into Perdition!!!

Trailer Trash In A Double-Wide

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

Town Of Coeymans
Town Hall

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

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

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

Now That I Have Your Undivided Attention…

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

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

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

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

You want to wear crown? Well…

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

Find’em and Fix’em

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

Caught cookie-handed!

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

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

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

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

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

Do A Family Virtue Pick!

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

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

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

Times Union Doesn’t Like My Comments…

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

The Times Union Blog Page On The RCS Vote Apparently Doesn’t Like My Comments, While Printing Every Perverse Sort Of Blather Possible, The Vast Majority Of Which Has Nothing To Do With The Topic, And Simply Is Mutual Bloodying Exchanges Between Disembodied Misfits

So the Times Useless doesn’t like what I have to say. Who gives a flying waffle, anyway! I even wonder why I bothered to share anything with that putrid rag in the first instance. But I did…Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa! So I’m a candidate for the DumbAss Award (that reminds me: We are awarding that this week…stay tuned!).

The Times Useless’ Star Reporter

With the daily numbers on this blog–three days straight we’ve topped the all-time single-day Readers figures and are now more than 1000 readers a day! On Tuesday, May 15th, more than 1450 readers visited the Smalbany blog. Thank you very much! The Times Useless site had less than 90 at the time, and most of those by a handful of sadomasochists pleasuring one another with back-and-forth parrying, inflicting minor mental lacerations so the actual number was probably 1/4 or even 1/5 of that 90, probably a maximum of 15 or 16 actual individuals, assuming they didn’t change their screen names multiple times, which is something that happens a lot.

Typical Times Useless Commentor

You’re probably seething to know what I wrote that the Times Useless found objectionable and not on a par with the overall Neanderthal-quality of the other contributors? Far be it from me to keep you drooling…here are my comments:

After reading some of these comments I occurs to me that they are very likely authored by a group of adolescents from the RCS high school who had attempted to pose as adults and comment on the Smalbany blog. The immaturity shows through as does almost identical wording of some of the comments; identical to comments that were disallowed on the Smalbany blog and TRASHED.  (They’ve obviously found a new home on the Times Useless blog.) Despite numerous warnings not to visit the blog and especially NOT to leave comments, they have tried every name in the book to get around it but their IP addresses give them away every time. Two arch delinquents are Timothy HOUGHTALING and Seamus MOONEY…two obnoxius little worms with egos bigger that the words they misuse. Here “JustTheFacts” would be a prime candidate for one of the RCS unparented, unschooled delinquent children.

Depite numerous warnings and requests to their principal Brian Bailey to intervene and help them to avoid a misdemeanor harassment charge, and to get their parents involved in parenting these two future criminals, they continue to ignore the warnings.

They repeatedly refer to idiotic social media sites for their facts and continue to disseminate their idiotic drivel and speculations. There’s an entire page dedicated to their initial attacks in which one of the gang, some Karen Rachael, even states that “their teachers were there laughing” while they were making their foul comments on the blog. That said it all for me regarding the RCS teachers and their teachers association.

You can read some of the school children’s comments at What Your Kids Were Doing in School at RCS Today… http://wp.me/p2jPFe-eX and Parents: Do You Know Where Your Children Are? at http://wp.me/p2jPFe-ey.

You know when a brainless adolescent is writing when you see names named and they can’t possibly be sure. Moreover, their sources are reminiscent of the addled ravings of one Joan Ross, an Albany transplant bored-as-hell-wannabe-sophisticate of New Baltimore, who out of the one side of her face would recruit her New Baltimore neighbors for her activist causes and then, after a drink or two, delight in demeaning them and calling them “newbaltimorons.” Same perverse logic: Please accept me, if you don’t I’ll try to destroy you. Purest narcissism.

Thank you. Please have a look at those two pages and compare with some of them here. You won’t be disappointed.

We Asked…You Responded: Thank You!

After I submitted that one, I submitted another once I read this comment:

89.No. 86 post really sums this up best! Not too late to get out and VOTE YES!! Don’t let these thugs scare you off! Stand up for your community. Your vote is the best way to get your voice heard. The other good way is to note which businesses are connected to this no-vote-campaign being waged by the [redacted]. Then vote with your checkbook and boycott! Comment by  Sanity — May 15th, 2012 @ 6:20 pm

“Thugs,” indeed! If you’ve read my article on the Pieter B. Coeymans PTO and the group of Coeymanazis taking aim on constitutional dissent, freedom of speech and opinion, and bullying the businesses who DARE to have an opinion (Thank you RJ DEsposito, Marlene McTigue, Sarah Berchtold Engel (a subject for NYSED moral conduct complaint), Donna Leput Hommel, and the Pieter B. Coeymans PTO FaceBook gang), you’ll  know the mentality of that bunch. But the commentor mentions “vote with your checkbook and boycott!”  Now that’s a reall pro-business, pro-community bit of advice, isn’t it? Real AMERICAN, too, if you have an opinion, we’ll punish you! The incarnation of the Pieter B. Coeymans PTO slogan, ““We are the PTO of Pieter B. Coeymans Elementary, A place to learn and grow.” Now…easy does it…get that foot into your mouth…you’re doing fine… (I know it’s hard to see what you’re doing when you have your head so far up your ass!)

So, after seeing that and even before my first comment was apparently trashed, I submitted a comment in response to a previous commentor who suggested that “This needs to be investigated,” referring to his/her drug-induced delusions (ironically this very same commentor uses the handle “Sanity,” that has to be the poor soul’s most severe delusion!).

My comment reads:

Yes! I agree. It does need investigating DESPERATELY. Especially the criminals who are deceiving the public in the secret meetings and the biased news media; or by not publishing the necessary facts; the criminals who are [fired by other departments and], Coeymans police officer McKenna, hired to the Coeymans Police Department by Gregory Darlington despite being found guilty of 9 counts of misconduct, lying to and misleading his supevisors, and fired by the Albany Police Department; the Coeymanazi Jerry Deluca (Deluca-Darlington’s Darling), who harasses women candidates and intimidates residents, the adulterer who was caught in flagrante delicto and now is a reader and a churchgoer at Saint Patrick’s RC in Ravena (Sundays only! Any other day he’s a Coeymanazi and horndog);  the ex-cops in judge’s robes using ex-cop tactics like Harold Warner (a person-of-interest to the New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct; can’t seem to shake the cop role); the self-avowed atheist teacher like Matt Miller at the RCS High School (a subject for NYSED moral conduct complaint); the breaches of confidentiality and abuse of special ed children by James Latter, a BoE member whose wife, Amanda Latter,  teaches math at the RCS Middle School, the idiotic judge who broadcasts prejudice and bias on his front lawn like George Dardiani (another person-of-interest to the NYS CJC), the teachers who abuse their students by recruiting them to advocate for special interest campaigns like the RCS Teachers Association (Matt Miller), the recruitment of bully gangs at the RCS High School by teachers (a subject for NYSED moral conduct complaint), the numerous students in the RCS schools who have had to be taken out because of bullying and home tutored at taxpayer expense. Lies? Sorry, but all of this comes straight from publicly available documents and resources. For example the Supplemental Memorandum of Agreement forced on the RCS BoE by the special-interest (teachers union) majority (teachers and teachers spouses, still on today’s ballot + 2) that was never published because it would have gotten the teachers union lynched! Need more, visit the Smalbany blog!

Need to know about the cyberbullying etc. visit A Little History Lesson on that same blog. There’s nothing hidden on that blog, friends. It’s all out in the open and all verifiable.

Links, documents, resources, you name it, we provide it on the Smalbany blog! So where are these ignorant TU  liars getting their material that they’re posting. It’s obvious, RCS Central School District does not offer a reading course, obviously; if they have visited the Smalbany blog, it’s simply to look at the pretty pictures!

So far only 4 visitors to this TU site have visted the Smalbany blog. Why would that be? more than 90 comments here, quite a few speculating on who the blogger is etc. but out of those 90 only 4 have moved their asses to see for themselves. Pitiful but predictable.

After that comment disappeared from the blog…the Times Useless is probably going to take that information and do some stories, taking credit for the research. I wouldn’t put it past them!

It’s getting pretty obvious that when Beavis and Butthead don’t have anything better to go on, they pick a name, any name, rip it to shreds and then find another. No issues, just factoids and names. No constructive suggestions, just factoids and names.

Say, for instance, you feel that something is wrong or fact is being misrepresented. Do you leave a comment at the source? Hell no! Why do that? You might get an answer to your question. It’s far better to scoot around and attack from the rear, right. Then you’re sure of getting your rocks off with a sucker punch! That’s how things are done by the RCS mob…from behind!

The Ol’ RCS Sucker Punch
They Like It From Behind

What I find particularly symptomatic and idiotic is that the topic of this site is the RCS CSD 2012-2013 school budget vote and other budget items, plus the BoE elections but what you people have been doing is mauling one another, picking on anyone who has the balls to come out and express themselves, and very pitifully few of you have any hard facts. You’re apparently a bunch of turdologists!

What’s even more disgusting is that a few of you have taken aim on individuals whom you feel have such immense power that they are the only ones with the leadership ability who will move the NO! side to defeat the budget! Do you really think that by slandering, libeling a couple of individuals you’ll make your point. The only thing that will defeat one side or the other is the people, the vote! Are you that ignorant of the issues and the real problems in the RCS district and the town of Coeymans that you need to pick easy targets because your atrophied inbred brains can’t handle the bigger issues. You need physical solid targets because you can’t handle the abstract! Or can it be that you are so desperate and so full of anxiety you think you’ve been slighted and need to retaliate, or that you’re so frightened you need to get the first shot, or that you’re next on the exposed list? Good Lord, do you need counseling! If only self-esteem came in a bottle; I’d have a market in the RCS district that would make me superrich overnight!

And what can we read in all of these idiotic handles and fake names. Doesn’t that in itself speak volumes?

So some of you fantasize that you  have done the world a real public service, have you, by unveiling the identity of the mystery blogger of RCS. OK. So you [think] you know who Fides qua Creditur is? That means that this was written by me, FqC; you claim you know who that is so I’m really not using a pseudonym; I’ve been outed. Are you going to come out now, too?

Peace

 So, there you have it! I hope I didn’t prematurely give away the coming issues to be prosecuted in the near future but if I did, well, c’est la vie; c’est la guerre!…since this writing the 2012-13 school budget has passed so there might still be a foreign language curriculum at the RCS high school…so I won’t translate the French 😉

Your’s Truly,

Know What It Feels Like to Be BLED to DEATH?

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

We have just acquired a copy of the so-called Supplemental Memorandum of Agreement between the Teachers Union a.k.a. the RCS Teachers Association and the RCS CSD and what we see in that document, submitted by the teachers union, is absolutely SCANDALOUS!

The Teachers Will Suck You Dry

If you vote YES! on the 2012-13 School Budget You’ll Know What it Feels Like to Be BLED TO DEATH!

Once you read this you will have to agree that the only way you can vote is NO! on the 2012-13 School Budget…and you’ll also have to agree that the teachers on the RCS Board of Education have to go!

You’ll Know Why When You Read This!

It’s all in the Supplemental Memorandum of Agreement offered by the teachers union and Matt Miller (remember him? the atheist teacher, also president of the RCS teachers union) and friends on April 17th, 2012. Before you misunderstand the document, it is a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) NOT a “contract,” and the terms of the agreement go into effect ONLY if the 2012-13 RCS School Budget is passed. So you must vote NO! to avoid being bled to death.

The teachers offer “a partial” = temporary “wage freeze” but subject to some pretty one-sided conditions (of course, the actual conditions were never made public for you to know!):

  1. According to the MOA, the Board must submit “a tax levy of 8.6%…or 6.8% based on efficiency measures that DO NOT NEGATIVELY IMPACT THE ASSOCIATION.” (#1 of the MOA). In other words, the teachers agree that you, the voters, can pay the 6.8%…everyone else can drop dead but the teachers association cannot be touched. Nice, right?
  2. The teachers’ 2010-2013 negotiated contract will be extended for two years, to 2015, with a 2.5% pay increase in each year of the extension. (#2 of the MOA).Wait a minute, this means the teachers get a raise when everyone else is cutting back! Now that’s a real sacrifice, voters!
  3. The teachers who initially do not receive the 2.5% per year pay increase will start to receive the 2.5% pay increase on February 1 [2013]  (#3 of the MOA).So, even those teachers who don’t initially get the pay increase get the pay increase on February 1st. Nice deal for the teachers! Pay me now, pay me later–win-win for the teachers! Do you like that, voters?
  4. On July 1, 2012, all members of the teachers union would still receive all increases in the 2010-13 contract. Another win-win for the teachers.
  5. There would be NO losses of full or part-time positions for teachers union members (#5 of the MOA). In other words, ALL teaching jobs would be safe, cuts would have to come from somewhere else but not from teachers! That’s really a sacrifice…ALL teachers’ jobs are safe, get raises, to hell with you, voter!
  6. Any savings from the Supplemental Agreement would be used only to offset tax levy but NOT to increase reserve funds or for any other purpose (#6 of the MOA). Only the teachers benefit, in other words.
  7. Number 7 of the MOA really gets us sick: “three sick days can be converted to personal days…above and beyond” (adding time off to the already generous time off without excuse)! Nice! Teachers get more paid  time off for themselves!

    What You’ll Be Screaming If the School Budget Passes

But the Teacher is Your Friend!

The key to stopping this ridiculous arrangement is to vote NO! on May 15th. If the budget is defeated these self-serving, shameless teachers’ demands will NOT go into effect! There is NO sacrifice of any kind in this Agreement, it’s a LOAN agreement and you, the voters, will have to pay for it plus interest!

 That’s the TRUTH behind your wonderful teachers! They are out for themselves and this proves it and you have to thank Matt Miller, David Dykeman, and Bridget Engelhardt of the RCS teachers association for cutting your throats, and the traitor teachers, teachers’ spouses and retired teachers (Engel, Whalen, O’Connor, Traver) on the Board of Education for pushing this monstrous deal through.

Loaded Dice:
Teachers Win=You Lose

If you vote NO! the teachers lose nothing and will continue according to the negotiated contract for 2010-2013.

We are including a scanned copy of the Supplemental Memorandum of Agreement for your reading “pleasure,” and so that you can see for yourself that everything we report on this issue is true and factual. Just click here to read the actual document: RCS CSD -Supplemental Memorandum of Agreement.

VOTE NO!
On May 15th

By the way, did you know that Howard ENGEL, a candidate for re-election to the RCS CSD Board of Education is a teacher married to a teacher, and is head of the teachers union at Averill Park? Did you know that candidate for election to the RCS CSD Board of Education Edward “Teddy” Reville is married to Engel’s sister? Sunilda Swan is also a former teacher. A. Whalen is a retired Teacher. Sitting board member James Latter’s wife is a math teacher at the RCS middle school. Particularly disturbing is the Board of Education meeting of November 1 at which residents call for the immediate resignation of sitting Board member Latter for breach of confidentiality and endangerment of a student, RCS Sports Association misuse of funds, questions regarding the RCS Sports Association’s non-profit status and 990 tax returns (non filed). O’Connor is a teacher. An you still don’t think the teachers are running the RCS BoE? In the name of fair play, get the teachers off the Board of Education!

This Blog Has Been Publishing News on the RCS Community Almost Non-Stop Since About March 29; As of Today We Have More than 11,000 Readers! We Notify Almost Every School Official in the Albany-Schenectady-Schoharie BOCES, officials of the NYS Department of Education, and Others, who Have A Need to Know.

Bailey, Is that You?

Can Someone Please Explain to Me How the Principal of RCS High School, Mr Brian Bailey, Can Write that He “Been Focused on the Teaching and Learning Within My Building and Have not Accessed This Blog.”

Some of our readers may have missed the main point: Bailey should not have to access this blog to know what’s going on–that is, if he’s interested–in his school, district, and community. On the other hand, he might simply be playing a game, he’s a teacher after all, and doesn’t want to s–t where he eats. He’s a member of the teachers association, the teachers union, and he works with the very people he’d be investigating. “Ignorant” he may really be–or just playing ignorant–but stupid he’s not. Right?

RCS high school, Bailey’s school, is a hotbed of the problems we’ve been discussing, his seniors, under the influence of their teachers, authored disgraceful comments, the Superintendent of Schools was notified (didn’t she even mention it to Baily?!?), the RCS Board of Education was notified (didn’t the teachers on the board recognize the seriousness of some of these issues?), his teachers are implicated in improper behavior. What in hell is Bailey doing all this time? Sure, he’s “focused on the teaching and the learning” but Where? on Uranus?

 What is RCS Superintendant Elizabeth Smith doing when she receives notifications of possible misconduct, of teacher’s possible involvement in retaliation against students? Reports of bullying? Well, she’s playing in the sand, too!

Superintendent Elizabeth Smith Focusing on Problems in the RCS Central School District.

Almost everyone in the RCS district must be talking about this blog; we know that the teachers are discussing it…the kids are bringing the conversations home to their parents. By the way: Isn’t that what the teachers lounge is for? Are they that idiotic that they discuss everything in the corridors? They’re worse than the kids!

We are not going to be awarding the coveted DumbAss Award this week because this is an occasion for a truly special award, which we would like to confer on none other than Mr Brian Bailey, principal of RCS high school, for his level of knowledge and awareness of what’s going on in his school and his community. Here’s to you, Bailey!

The Coveted Head-up-Yer-Butt Award goes to Principal Brian Bailey.

Background: A reader/contributor contacted Bailey (principal of RCS high school) and Pam Black (principal of RCS middle school) asking:

I would like to inquire what the RCS senior high school administration is undertaking in response to the allegations made on the Smalbany blog relating to (1) student misconduct in comments made on the blog, (2) the statement made by one student commentor that her teachers were involved in the comments, (3) the very serious allegation of teacher involvement in retaliatory bully gangs at the RCS middle and high schools.”

Bailey responded”
“I have been focused on the teaching and learning within my building and have not accessed this blog.  I will look into the information that you have shared with me and will work to discover suitable resolution to any possible issues.”
 
The issues have been published almost daily for more than a month. Doesn’t the man get out of his building? Doesn’t he listen or talk to his teachers?
 
Damned, if I received a request like that I’d be on that blog in a heartbeat…I wouldn’t come up with some asinine excuse like “I have been focused…” Focused on what? Someone should focus him out of his overpaid job!
 
Doesn’t he talk to the Superintendent of Schools? Doesn’t he talk to the members of the Board of Education? Is the man alive and on this planet????
We understand that Pam Black, principal of the RCS Middle School was contacted with the same questions. She’s apprently out to lunch (get my drift?) and apparently hasn’t seen fit to respond. We’ll get a report when she does, if she does, so stay tuned.
 
Parents, isn’t it time to ask some really tough questions? Is this how interested the principals are, the superintendent of your schools is? Is this why you should cough up more for their raises? Get a troupe of monkeys and get a better response!
 
I’m beside myself. I can’t believe this community. It’s scandalous!
 
Send a link to this blog to your relatives, friends, neighbors, elected officials. Make copies and hand them to those who don’t have access to the Internet. Vote NO! on May 15th! Send these leeches a very strong message…no more $$$ for ignorance!!!   

The Rule of Thumb at RCS
