An Editorial: Where’s the Pioneer Spirit in Ravena-Coeymans?

Intermission: An Editorial Opinion Article

“Qui tacet consentire videtur ubi loqui debuit ac potuit.”
“Silence is admission when when the accused ought to have spoken and was able to.”

Special Notice: We make every effort to be truthful, complete, fair, and balanced on this blog; therefore, if you see anything that you know to be false or incorrect, or if you have additional information to clarify any issue, please let us know by e-mailing your information or by leaving a comment. It’s very important to us that we don’t fall into the same category as those whom this blog is intended to expose. Thank you very much in advance for your coöperation and assistance!

pionee spiritYou Can’t Be Indifferent Once You Read This Blog. You Either Love It Or Hate It. And We Know Exactly Who Hates It.

The two features that characterizes the Blogger and the freedom-loving Americans who contribute to this blog either by writing, commenting, or sending in leads for stories are good old American pioneer spirit and courage. Yes. A pioneer spirit that dares to push the frontiers, to test the mettle, to challenge the powers and the elements. And courage. That virtue that draws the line between cowards and sheeple and those of us who are not afraid to call a crook a crook or to confront a corrupt cop or politician, or to challenge an illegal law. We don’t suck anyone dry. We don’t kick you when you’re down. We don’t pick on kids and old women. We call a spade a spade and shout “Screw P.C.” We tell it like it is!

We are the real Americans in word, deed and spirit.

Do You Have Any?

Do You Have Any?

And what about the rest of you. You eat away your denial and depression. You approach 400 pounds and then cry you have no benefits to cover your heart disease and your diabetes–yours and your fat kids’. Or you isolate yourselves in closed groups or gated communities emphasizing the fact that you’re detached and isolated from the real world. You go to the polls knowing little or nothing about the people you elect and you don’t ask or demand to know. Or you do know them and you’re voting not because they’re good but because they share your own corrupt and misguided ideas about life and society—most of them greed-driven. You go to church on Sunday and promise love of neighbor, and leave church with a strategy on how to screw the living life-blood out of your neighbors on Monday. You close your eyes to the evil around you and so become complicit in it and an accessory to the very crimes and abuse you complain of.

you witness violation of civil rights and scuttling of democracy in your front yard without a whimper

You scream civil rights and democracy but you witness violations of civil rights and scuttling of democracy in your front yard without a whimper, and then beat the war drums when it comes to some distant land you can’t even locate on a map if you had to do so. Democracy begins at home, you know; here it’s long dead so we try to reinvent it elsewhere…and fail.

Americans Have Become The Pussies And The Bullies  Of The International Community

Everyone knows there’s a Constitution and a Bill of Rights but hasn’t a clue what they mean. Sure, all you gun-toting, law-abiding hunters and “sportsmen” scream bloody murder when it comes to your Second Amendment “rights” (that’s the “right to bear arms” one, you know) and are Gung ho!  when it comes to shooting a helpless wild animal or at a painted target; but you’d likely shit your guts out if confronted by a 250 pound 6 foot hairy Syrian with a slingshot, though. Americans have become the pussies and the bullies  of the international community (fact: bullies are really pussies) thanks to the abuse they get at home by their lying, cheating so-called elected officials and law enforcement (fact: bullies were/are victims of abuse). By the way, how many of you overweight armchair heroes out there were ever in uniform, cops included, and we don’t mean a Hot Shops uniform, or a Halloween police costume (Yeah! You! Gregory Darlington and “Dirty-Hands” Jerry Deluca.) And we don’t mean those of you who play the macho Latino superhero…you know, the National Guard desk jockeys who, underneath the macho walk and talk, are pink little pussies.

How Many of You are Pink Pussies?

How Many of You are Pink Pussies?

How many of you actually walk the walk and talk the talk of real liberty, spirit, and American community? Not many from where we’re standing. And you know it’s true. So, what are you going to do about it? Probably get really pissed off at this blog because it’s telling it like it is. AGAIN, STILL. Or are you going to wake up, smell the coffee, and do something about it? Are you going to admit that your Coeymans police department is inefficient, corrupt, even criminal and demand…DEMAND PUBLICLY, that is, that the Coeymans town board take the rudder and do some disciplining and firing. Demand that the Ravena village board and the Coeymans town board remember who elected them and why. Demand hat the town board stop playing cookie-jar to the Coeymans police and stop feeding the money pit they’ve created. How about some transparency—and a new police chief who doesn’t threaten the town clerk’s employees when they obey the laws of New YorkState because doing so might expose Gregory Darlington and Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca and others in the department for the thugs and criminals that they are.

Ravena News Herald/Times Useless Reporter Looking for a Story

Ravena News Herald/Times Useless Reporter Looking for a Story

Maybe somehow, if we all got together and demanded some accountability and some respect for laws in our village and town halls and in our police department we could, just maybe, become a real community instead of a backwater source of scandal for rags like the Times Useless. Maybe if the local “official newspaper,” the Ravena News Herald would print some real local news instead of love-fest reports and news from Schenectady, Rensselaer, and beyond. Maybe if the News Herald were not such a bunch of prostitutes they might even investigate some of the facts we publish and publish them, too. Wouldn’t that be a welcome change? Truth, reality, and real facts in the Times Union and News Herald. Maybe we should say NO! to our village and town hall becoming a family business instead demand a center for excellence in small-town government.

Have a Look a the Real World Outside of Your Constricted, Selfish, Individualistic, Materialistic Pin Heads

This Community Has Become a Bunch of Pinheads

This Community Has Become a Bunch of Pinheads

Do you even know how many of our local official’s sons, daughters, cousins, buddies are actually working in their friends’ and relatives’ departments in the village of Ravena or the town of Coeymans? How many are being given jobs at taxpayer expense and you don’t even know that the village or town is getting them civil service status unlawfully or by lying outright (Right? Mayor Bruno, Nancy Warner, Cathy Deluca). Do you know what that means to you? You will soon because we’re going to be publishing the incestuous connections, the favoritism, the croneyism that’s been festering right under your noses and has been insidiously making this Ravena-Coeymans area a ghost town, a cesspool of corruption, an asylum of denial and fear, just the place where people want their kids to grow up. Right? Maybe those of you who are members of the special clubs like Friends of RCS (Wadda joke!), Save the Arts at RCS, RCS Sports Association, RCS Friends and More should take a step out of the holy of holies of your special little groups and have a look a the real world outside of your constricted, selfish, individualistic, materialistic pin heads! Look around you! Breath the LaFarge air deep into your collapsed lungs! Take a ride down the pothole pocked streets or a swim in them during a heavy rain! Try to find the creeks and waterways your Coeymans code enforcement officer, Laverne “Larry” Conrad, and your local shyster, Michael J. Biscone, have buried and have evaded the attention of the NYS Department of Environmental Corruption! Your tax dollars at work, you know!

Take a closer look at the composition of your Ravena Coeymans Selkirk Central School District Board of Education. Did you really intend it to be a nest of self-interested, greedy bastards—most all BoE members are teachers or married to a teacher—who now have control of more than $40,000,000 (yes that’s millions) of tax dollars and how they pad their pockets by appointments of family members and friends? All this while the bullying and student-on-student attacks continue, per student costs are nearly the highest in the state,  and graduation rates remain the lowest in the state! Do you even know how many teachers or relatives of teachers are on your board of education. Or that the very man they cursed and defiled, interim superintendent Allen R. McCartney has no balls and now is a friend of the very people who vociferously demanded he not be hired? By the way, keep a very close eye on the board of education, they’re gradually crowding you, the public, out of the inner circle of information, making decisions behind closed doors without your knowledge and inputs. In other words, the RCS BoE is starting to operate on the corrupt model of the village of Ravena. We’re starting to believe the Ravena syndrome is an infection; the corruption started when the RCS BoE moved into the Ravena offices building, you know! Your tax dollars going into their pockets. How do you feel about that?

Your Coeymans police chief, Gregory Darlington, a mere employee of the town, has threatened the Coeymans town clerk’s office with consequences if the clerk’s office continues to process residents’ F.O.I.L. requests for information about what’s going on in the Coeymans P.D

BoBo & DoDo Off-duty

BoBo & DoDo Off-duty

New York State has laws that say the public has a right to information. One of those laws is the Freedom of Information Law or F.O.I.L. What do you think of the allegation that your Coeymans police chief, a mere employee of the town, has threatened the Coeymans town clerk’s office with consequences if the clerk’s office continues to process residents’ F.O.I.L. requests for information about what’s going on in the Coeymans P.D. The Coeymans police chief, Gregory Darlington, has violated his oath to support, protect, defend the United States Constitution and the laws of the United States and of the State of New York and now he’s threatening the office of the town of Coeymans clerk, a town official ELECTED by the people and who has also taken an oath to support, protect and to defend the Constitution of the United States, if her employees obey the law. Here we have a dumbass fat man threatening a highly experienced, competent, professional woman and her female staff members who are doing their jobs extremely well and in excellent service of the residents of this town. How far are we going to let this garden gnome Darlington and his jelly-belly bimbo-chaser, Deluca, push this community into becoming a police state.

“Indifferent to truth, willing to use police-state tactics and vulgar libels against inconvenient witnesses, hopeless on health care, and flippant and fast and loose with national security. ― Christopher Hitchens

And then there’s the village of Ravena with its lunatic mummy mayor John Bruno and his band of dithering winged monkeys (Remember the Wizard of Oz?) — Warner, Bailey, Case, Persico, Demitraszek, Deluca — sucking the life out of what was once a vibrant model village community. Ravena has become  a withering, wincing, whining, shadow of a stain on the map of AlbanyCounty. Why? Because the vampires in the Ravena village hall and the Coeymanazis have one thing in mind: squeeze everything and anything of value out of this community and leave the rest to the maggots. Mayor John Bruno and his hatchet woman, Nancy Warner, and the three stooges, William “Bill” Bailey, Martin “Marty” Case, and Rocco Persico, have violated just about every ethical principle, human and constitutional right imaginable. They’ve done this under the gavel of a viscious, lunatic, mendacious, clown of a mayor, John Bruno, supported by the greedy, vile, sweaty, bloated local shyster of the Biscone tribe, Michael J. Biscone, who has attempted just about every evil trick in the book, including attempting to censor freedom of speech at village meetings. (Yes! Reported in the Ravena News Herald in 2009 and more recently on this blog.)

Mr R. Houghtaling, the former very competent Coeymans town supervisor and a very smart man, told Ravena mayor John Bruno to get lost and read him the riot act on the First Amendment and Bruno and jerky-boy, Michael “Fix–a  Felony–for–a-Price” Biscone tucked their impotent tails between their scrawny legs and turn-tailed backed off.

Anything Good Will Contrast So Sharply with What’s Been Going on It Will Show Them Up for the Villains That They Are

Now the John Bruno–Nancy Warner gang are trying to destroy anything good happening in the village of Ravena and the hamlet of Coeymans because anything good will contrast so sharply with what’s been going on it will show them up for the villains that they are.

Of course, the Coeymans police department and Do-Do cop Gregory “Diddling” Darlington jumps on the bandwagon of rights violations, most recent atrocity has been reported here on this blog about the Ravena gazebo and Ravena’s unconstitutional loitering law. They’re trying to get to the adults, again, by using the kids.

How is it that this RCS area has gotten into the despicable and vile habit of pushing their agendas through on the backs of the children of this community. Every nasty scheme and political shenanigan has been either “for the kids,” “about the kids,” or in the case of the Bruno–Warren–Coeymans Police campaign, “against the kids.”

Are Bruno, Warner, and the cops trying to intimidate or retaliate against the kids, the Teen Center?

In fact, we have witness reports about mayor John Bruno, Ravena board member Nancy Biscone-Warner, and the Coeymans police driving by the gazebo multiple times in a single night when the kids are at the Teen Center. Is this passive aggression directed at the kids, the Teen Center? Are Bruno, Warner, and the Coeymans cops trying to intimidate or retaliate against the kids, the Teen Center? Don’t the Coeymans cops have anyone to harass now that the kids are off the streets, enjoying a beautiful place under a caring competent adult’s supervision, staying out of trouble. Are the Coeymans cops getting bored? Are Bruno and Warner afraid something good is happening in town and they don’t have control over it or are not making some sort of profit from it or getting a take? You can figure this out on your own; all you have to do is wake up and see reality around you.

Elections are coming up soon and you have to ask yourselves some very realistic questions:

    • Do you enjoy living under the thumb of a corrupt Albany Democrat machine and its lackeys in Ravena and Coeymans?
    • Are you O.K. with the abuse of the civil service system by the Albany County Civil Service Department under Mr Michael Cummings and the slick way they tried to slip Cathy Deluca in as Fitness Center Director on a non-competitive civil service job title?
    • Do you want to have your village and town governments turned into family businesses like what’s happened in Ravena and what’s happening in the town of Coeymans now?
    • Do you like being left out of the public information links?
    • Do you want to know what’s going on in your community?
    • Do you want the vermin from the village of Ravena insiders club, the very ones who have implemented mayor John Bruno’s ghost town plan and the Biscone plan to own Ravena outright, to get their hooks and claws into the government of the town of Coeymans?
    • Do you really need someone like Martin Case or William Bailey to extend mayor John Bruno’s agenda of scorch-and-burn, then buy cheaply, to the town of Coeymans?
    • Do we really want a Coeymans police department that is sucking the public treasury dry, botching up drug raids (raiding the wrong apartments etc.), that is obstructing justice, that is abusing public office, outright threatening our honest elected officials, intimidating and retaliating, changing this community into a mini-police state because then they can do the bidding of the Brunos and Biscones in the area. Then they can keep everyone quiet–well, not everyone–and in a police state of terror
  • Do your want to give the RCS board of education, now dominated by special-interest crooks and cronies, unsupervised, unmonitored free rein with millions of taxpayer dollars?
  • Since the last so – called election, the RCS board of education is now more of a membership – only club than an elected body; it’s now more of a special-interests lobby (and their interests are not yours!) than a public service group; Unless you demand accountability and transparency you’re not going to get it from them willingly! In fact, there’s a very scary connection between the BoE and the village of Ravena, did you know that? (We’ll be publishing some interesting facts on that connection of corruption soon, too!)
  • Are you happy with the way the village of Ravena (like the Ravena Health and Fitness Center scam) and the town of Coeymans (the new police cruisers, the hiring irregularities, the lack of supervision) are spending your money? How many patrol cars does the Coeymans Police Department need, anyway? Maybe a safe driving course would be better for some of them. Maybe making most of them unemployed would be best for all of us.
  • How much more of the village of Ravena has to disappear or lapse into the hands of the Biscones, the Persicos, the Brunos, the Delucas, the Conrads, the Perrines before residents stand up and put a stop to the mismanagement and abuse?
  • Are you willing to make the town of Coeymans a big Ravena by putting someone like Martin Case in the Supervisor’s office?

Dear readers, royalty and special privileged classes were rejected with the blood of colonial Americans who revolted against tyranny. They gave us a Constitution and later a Bill of Rights. For generations since those courageous steps, men and women of noble heart and love of liberty have shed their blood in defense of the liberties and freedoms granted by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In recent years, men and women of evil intentions and traitorous hearts have eroded those rights and liberties for their own gain, and they’ve done it by stealth, deception, lies, and cheating.

There is a saying that all politics start in the home. If that’s true, we really had better take a very close look at what’s going on right at our dinner table or in our living rooms before it’s really too late, and we have to live in the police state they’ve created for us and which we have allowed them to create.

The Editor

P.s. A few political quotes I’ve selected for you to think about:

“A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.” — Edward R. Murrow

“You’re not to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it.” — Malcolm X, By Any Means Necessary

“Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip.” — Winston Churchill

The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them. To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. — Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

“All war is a symptom of man’s failure as a thinking animal.”— John Steinbeck

“In politics, stupidity is not a handicap.” — Napoleon Bonaparte

“Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.” — Ronald Reagan

“If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don’t bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay home if you want, but don’t bullshit yourself that you’re not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard’s vote.” — David Foster Wallace, Up, Simba!

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” — C.S. Lewis

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.” — Dwight D. Eisenhower

“People are always shouting they want to create a better future. It’s not true. The future is an apathetic void of no interest to anyone. The past is full of life, eager to irritate us, provoke and insult us, tempt us to destroy or repaint it. The only reason people want to be masters of the future is to change the past.” — Milan Kundera “Indifferent to truth, willing to use police-state tactics and vulgar libels against inconvenient witnesses, hopeless on health care, and flippant and fast and loose with national security.” ― Christopher Hitchens

“The fact is that the modern implementation of the prison planet has far surpassed even Orwell’s 1984 and the only difference between our society and those fictionalized by Huxley, Orwell and others, is that the advertising techniques used to package the propaganda are a little more sophisticated on the surface.
Yet just a quick glance behind the curtain reveals that the age old tactics of manipulation of fear and manufactured consensus are still being used to force humanity into accepting the terms of its own imprisonment and in turn policing others within the prison without bars.” ― Paul Joseph Watson

“Qui tacet consentire videtur ubi loqui debuit ac potuit.”
“Silence is admission when when the accused ought to have spoken and was able to.”

Criminal Obstruction of Justice & Official Misconduct: Gregory Darlington, Coeymans PD

Most Citizens Are Unaware of Laws that Can Be Used in Self-Defense Against Rogue Public Servants and to Bring Public Servants to Justice.

 

Obstruction of Justice, Official Misconduct, Personal Injury, Violations of Protected Rights BRING THEM TO JUSTICE!!!

Obstruction of Justice, Official Misconduct, Personal Injury, Violations of Protected Rights
BRING THEM TO JUSTICE!!!

That Includes Police Chiefs and Police Officers, Government Elected Officials, Other Public Employees, Too!

New York Penal Law (hereinafter called NYP) § 195.00 Official misconduct. A public servant is guilty of official misconduct when, with intent to obtain a benefit or deprive another person of a benefit…he knowingly refrains from performing a duty which is imposed upon him by law or is clearly inherent in the nature of his office. Official misconduct is a class A misdemeanor.

§195.05 Obstructing governmental administration in the second degree. A person is guilty of obstructing governmental administration when he intentionally obstructs, impairs or perverts the administration of law or other governmental function or prevents or attempts to prevent a public servant from performing an official function, by means of intimidation, physical force or interference. Official misconduct is a class A misdemeanor.

US Code – Chapter 73: Obstruction of justice. Obstruction of justice is a serious federal offense where someone tries to impede the interfere with the legal process. This can include actions that impede the criminal process during the investigation stage or during the trial. There are many different ways that someone can be charged with obstructing justice such as: Attempting to influence a judge, court employee or a jury member; threatening, assaulting, blackmailing, retaliating against or taking other actions against someone for participating in a criminal investigation or prosecution; Lying to law enforcement officials about important information such as Knowingly altering, concealing, or destroying evidence or potential evidence.

Ways to Commit Obstruction of Justice

Obstruction of justice is a crime which can be charged in a number of scenarios. It can be committed by a judicial official, an elected official, attorneys and people obstructing the justice system. The following are ways that the crime of obstruction of justice can be committed:

  • Interfering with the work of prosecutors, government officials, other officials, police, investigators or other professionals doing work to promote or ensure justice can constitute obstruction of justice.
  • When a person who is questioned during an investigation lies to the police, this can result in obstruction of justice charges when the truth is discovered. The right to remain silent protects individuals who do not wish to cooperate with an investigation if it may incriminate them.
  • Altering or destroying physical evidence can bring about obstruction of justice charges. 
  • As a government official, a police chief or district attorney has an increased duty to uphold justice and enforce the laws, and his failure to do so can result in charges of obstruction of justice.
  • Perjury can bring about obstruction of justice charges whether it is committed by an official or anyone in an official investigation.

In new york obstruction of justice is a class “a” misdeamenor.  maximum punishment is up to a year in jail.

So, What Do You Think of When You Think of the Coeymans Police Department? Official Misconduct? Obstruction of Justice? Violation of Protected Constitutional Rights? Personal Injurty (Physical, Reputation, Loss of Income, Property Damage, Medical Expenses, etc.)?

Enough is Enough: Village of Ravena and Town of Coeymans Police Department to Be Served!

When Scoff-Laws are on the Street Ít’s Bad Enough

But When the Scoff-Laws are

Making the Laws or Enforcing Them It’s Downright Criminal!!!

But That’s What We Have Going On In The Village Of Ravena Village Offices And In The Town Of Coeymans Police Department And The Albany Democrat Machine Is Playing Right Along. But It Ain’t Over Til The Fat Lady Sings!

Village of Ravena and Town of Coeymans PD to be Served

Village of Ravena and Town of Coeymans PD to be Served

The village of Ravena and the Coeymans Police Department are playing a game of chicken with the New York State Public Officers Law Article 6 Sections 84-90, better known as the New York State Freedom of Information Law, or F.O.I.L. for short. They have been playing loosy goosey with the law for some years now, according to a number of local residents who have been trying for years to get the village of Ravena and the Coeymans Police Department to cough up documents and information that citizens have a right to see and know about. But Ravena and the Coeymans PD have been refusing to obey the law and have been making stupid excuses why they don’t produce the information citizens are demanding to see. Ravena and the Coeymans PD make all sorts of excuses why they don’t have to give you what you want but none of it’s going to work from now on. They are not above the law and the jig is up and they’re going to hear the old refrain, “You’ve been served!”

[Editor’s Note: It is important to make clear that the culprit in the town of Coeymans is the Coeymans Police Department, not the Town Clerk’s Office. Mr Gregory Darlington and his hand-picked Coeymans PD thugs are the problems—due largely to their ignorance and loyalty to their Coeymanazi godfathers—and are apparently indifferent to the principle of law and laws. The staff of the town of Coeymans Town Clerk’s office is non-partisan, professional, and knowlegeable of their duties and obligations to the public. The village of Ravena could learn a great deal from the Coeymans Clerk and her staff.]

We have been informed that Notices of Claim are going out to the village of Ravena, the Coeymans Police Department, and the RCS CSD putting them on notice that lawsuits are just around the corner and that they’d better be prepared to explain to the judge why they feel they don’t have to comply with New York’s laws.

PUBLIC OFFICERS LAW, ARTICLE 6 SECTIONS 84-90 FREEDOM OF INFORMATION LAW states:

The legislature hereby finds that a free society is maintained when government is responsive and responsible to the public, and when the public is aware of governmental actions. The more open a government is with its citizenry, the greater the understanding and participation of the public in government.

As state and local government services increase and public problems become more sophisticated and complex and therefore harder to solve, and with the resultant increase in revenues and expenditures, it is incumbent upon the state and its localities to extend public accountability wherever and whenever feasible.

The people’s right to know the process of governmental decision-making and to review the documents and statistics leading to determinations is basic to our society. Access to such information should not be thwarted by shrouding it with the cloak of secrecy or confidentiality. The legislature therefore declares that government is the public’s business and that the public, individually and collectively and represented by a free press, should have access to the records of government in accordance with the provisions of this article.

So why is the village of Ravena and the Coeymans PD so tight-lipped? And why is the RCS CSD so hard to get information out of? Well, we all know that there’s plenty to hide and if some of it gets out there, there’ll be no place for the crooks and criminals in town to hide. They’d rather take their chances giving citizens the runaround and bullying them into giving up. They’d rather take their chances hoping that citizens will despair and just say “Forgettaboutit!”

A Thing of the Past Make them Listen!

A Thing of the Past
Make them Listen!

But things have changed. We’ve been informed that the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans Police Department are to be served with Notices of Claim, the first step in the process of suing a municipality, putting them on notice that they’ve violated the law for too long and it’s time to pay up. The same applies to the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District where it seems the teachers, union reps, coaches, and board of education members like James Latter can violate confidentiality rules and the laws protecting student and family information but then turn around and refuse to release information when requested by parents and concerned citizens. Kinda looks like they’ve gotten things ass-end-backwards but we’re here to set the poor backward dolts right. And we’d like to hear from you and we’d like your help to do just that.

In fact, we’ve agreed to be a clearing house for Ravena, Coeymans, Selkirk, and New Baltimore residents who have had less-than-satisfactory experiences with the village of Ravena, the town of Coeymans Police Department, the town of New Baltimore, the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Central School District offices or school administrators when trying to get information you have a right to have.

Now that the Notices of Claim are going out to the village of Ravena, the town of Coeymans Police Department and the RCS-CSD, we’d like to hear from you, residents, citizens, parents about your problems in getting local government to share information to which you have a right. If you’ve had problems, we want to know about them. We’d like to to tell us about your experiences and even send us your requests for information that have been denied or that have gotten “lost” by Ravena or the Coeymans PD or the RCS CSD. Help us eliminate this unlawful and unfair practice and write to us at rcs.confidential@gmail.com to leave your confidential information and story. No names or identifying details will be published so when you write to us at rcs.confidential@gmail.com you are sharing information that stays with us. We may contact you once we hear from you for clarification but no one else will see your messages. Or you can leave a public message here, on this blog, by leaving a comment.

One final word…

About the Committee on Open Government

The Committee on Open Government, is a unit housed in the Department of State that oversees and advises the government, public, and news media on Freedom of Information, Open Meetings, and Personal Privacy Protection Laws. The Committee offers guidance in response to phone inquiries, prepares written legal advisory opinions, and provides training to government and other interested groups. Recommendations to improve open government laws are offered in an annual report to Governor and the State Legislature.

The Committee is responsible for overseeing and advising with regard to the Freedom of Information Law, the Open Meetings Law and the Personal Privacy Protection Law (Public Officers Law, Articles 6, 7 and 6-A respectively). Staff of the Committee gives advice by telephone, email, written advisory opinions, and training classes conducted throughout the state. Advice is offered to the government, the public and the news media.

The Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) pertains to the public’s right to gain access to government records. See the FOIL Advisory Opinion Index. The Open Meetings Law (OML) concerns the public’s right to attend meetings of public bodies. See the OML Advisory Opinion Index. Both statutes are based upon a presumption of access and, since their initial enactment, have undergone significant changes based largely upon recommendations made by the Committee.

(Source: NYS Department of State, Committee on Open Government website at http://www.dos.ny.gov/coog/index.html)

Unfortunately, like most government offices, especially those headed by political tools like Robert J. Freeman of the Committee on Open Government, are all but useless when it comes to solving local problems. There’s always a glitch. Always a kink and nothing gets done.  Sure, you’ll get to read all the flowery statements and all of the empty promises on their websites. And you’ll get to read all the promising mission statements and empty promises but to be very realistic NOTHING IS GOING TO GET DONE UNLESS YOU MOVE YOUR ASSES AND DO IT!!! If you think that government has your interests in mind, whether it’s the village of Ravena, the Coeymans Police Department or the RCS CSD, you’re dead in the water, friends. Roadkill. And that’s the way they want to keep it.

Write to us with your story, your information, your demands and let’s get the information out to you. You have a right to have it. The law says so!

Get the Information You Want! You Have a Right to It! Stop the Frauds! The Editor

What’s the Village of Ravena Trying to Hide? Disclosure of Legal Fees.

As Many of Our Readers Know, Getting Disclosure from the Village of Ravena is As Easy As Finding  a Chicken’s Teeth! 

We Found'Em! Ravena Can Run But They Can't Hide!

We Found’Em!
Ravena Can Run But They Can’t Hide!

Let’s see: Ravena Village Clerk. Isn’t the office of the village clerk an elected office? Let’s ask Kristine Biernacki or Annette Demitraszek, they should know, right? Actually, anywhere else, the village clerk would probably be elected. But not in Ravena! Village law allows the mayor to appoint and the village board to approve the mayor’s appointment to the office of village of Ravena Clerk. Smell INCEST here?

Ravena Village Trustee Nancy Biscone-Warner. Isn’t the office of village trustee an elected office? Well, is it Nancy Biscone-Warner? And what about the office of the mayor of the village of Ravena, that’s an elected office, isn’t it? Well, isn’t it John Bruno? Well, aren’t public servants, elected officials supposed to serve the community? Aren’t they supposed to serve the best interests of the community who put them in office? Well, can anyone tell us why Demitraszek, Biscone-Warner, Bruno are doing their best to stonewall? What are they trying to hide? Wouldn’t you think they could come up with the documents and the figures for the village of Ravena’s legal expenses? It’s public information after all!

Committee for Open Government (NY Department of State!) and Robert J. Freeman.  Nancy Biscone-Warner is really working hard to keep it all under wraps, even upstaging the village clerk Demitraszek and passing on misinformation to a club member at the Committee for Open Government (now that’s a joke!), attorney Robert J. Freeman, who plays their cute little game with them. The incest club hard at work. Well Robert J. Freeman is a political appointee and has been occupying the executive director’s office of the Committee for Open Government for more than 36 years! Isn’t there something wrong with that? It sounds like somebody’s getting rewarded for some hefty favors, doesn’t it? Sorta like our own little nest of thieves rewarding Cathy Deluca with the Ravena Health and Fitness Center and the position of director. Right Nancy Biscone-Warner? Must be Nancy’s “Biscone” showing through. Right, Nancy? Stinks of raw sewerage from Albany all the way down to Ravena village hall. And you’re paying for it all…through the nose!

We Could Start With Ravena Village Offices

We Could Start With Ravena Village Offices

What’s theVillage of Ravena Trying to Hide?
The Request to Disclose Legal Fees Paid to Attorneys Between 2000 and 2013.

We have acquired documents served on the village of Ravena under the provisions of the New York State Freedom of Information Law (F.O.I.L.) that demand that the village of Ravena produce documents showing the amount and the recipient of legal fees and payments. In short the demand for disclosure and production of docments read:

“For the period of on or about January 1, 1990 to on or about January 1, 2013 all invoices, statements, requests for payment, expense reports, demands for payment, or vouchers, or such documents that otherwise authorize or show payment in an amount certain for legal services provided by the law firm or partners or associates of the law firm of Michael J. Biscone or the law firm of Biscone and Neri, or Louis Neri, Esq., or Michael J. Biscone, Esq., including but not by limitation any compensation for activity as a public official for or on behalf of the village of Ravena.”

Other parts of the F.O.I.L include similar requests for payments made to Joseph C. Rotello or any law firm of Joseph C. Rotello, or Joseph C. Rotello, Esq.; the law firm of John T. Biscone or any law firm of John T. Biscone, or John T. Biscone, Esq.; the law firm of Gregory Teresi or any law firm of Gregory Teresi, or Gregory Teresi, Esq., and further requests

“Please note that if the particulars (the attorney invoice number, the matter number, or the substance of the matter) of the service for which payment is requested is not stated in the voucher, this request also demands production of any document specifically identifying the specifics of the service (such as the attorney invoice) for which payment is being authorized but not the documents memorializing the matter itself.”

Having served the F.O.I.L demands, the requestor adds:

“Please find attached my demand for disclosure under the provisions of the NYS FOIL.
“Please contact me promptly if you have any questions relating to this demand.”
The first village of Ravena response received by the citizen making the request reads:

“Please be advised that your request for legal services payments does not reasonably describe records in our possession because our vouchers are fiiled in chronological order not by subject.” (Kristine Biernacki, Village Clerk)

Isn’t that interesting? The request for “legal services payments does not reasonably describe records” in the village of Ravena’s possession.”  And why? Because the village of Ravena’s filing system is in “chronological order not by subject.”  Now, we’re not talking the Borough of Manhattan, we’re talking about receipts and vouchers for legal services paid by the village of Ravena. But you see where this is going, don’t you?

The requestor replies:

“The FOIL is not required anticipate, to comply with or to allow for record-keeping idiosyncrasies of the custodian of the demanded records; the fact that you state that records particularized and specified in the FOIL might represent a “request for legal services payments [that] does not reasonably describe records in our possession” is clearly insufficient grounds for refusing to produce the documents demanded in the FOIL. The fact that the village of Ravena maintains its payment vouchers chronologically does not reasonably represent an absolute impediment or imppossibility of production whatsoever. It simply means that your search will necessarily have to be made chronologically in the absence of a more crossreferenced or alternative system of records keeping. That has no bearing whatsoever on the demands of the FOIL in question. [emphasis provided]
Not having heard a peep from the village of Ravena, the requestor writes:
“Can you please provide an update on the progress of your fulfillment of the production demand of the amended legal fees FOIL.”
Biernacki does the Dancing Turkey

Biernacki does the Dancing Turkey

Ravena village clerk Kristine Biernacki replies on March 19, 2013:
“I am extremely busy right now collecting for Village water/sewer bills and I am working alone now with a part time person,  so it will be some time before I am able to fulfill your request.”

Reading between the lines: I’m too busy right now collecting money for mayor Bruno to waste my time complying with state of New York laws.

The Requestor writes back:

“Thank you, Kris, for the heads-up. I appreciate it. 
“Please do keep me updated.”
Sounds friendly enough, right. First the village tries to get out of producing the records because they claim the request doesn’t reasonbly describe the records being requested. Now, they are saying that they can’t get to it because they’re collecting water and sewer bills. All along, the requestor is obviously patient and courteous.
 
So, along comes April 1, 2013, and the deadline for the village’s response is just days away, and the requestor contacts the village:
“I am following up on the production in response to my foil below. 
“Can you please provide a date certain when you expect to have the Village’s response ready?”
Are you getting the feeling somebody’s getting the run-around? I do!
So April 10, 2013, rolls around and the requestor has to write again:
“I need to know when I can expect the information demanded in the legal fees FOIL.
” I am willing to wait until Friday, April 12, 2013, 12:00 noon for the full response; after that, I’m afraid I shall have to presume that the village of Ravena is refusing to comply with a lawful demand, and I shall submit a complaint to the Office of the State Attorney General together with a request for investigation. 
“My last two emails have gone unanswered and I presume that to be the village’s attempt to avoid responding.”
So, on April 11, 2013, over a month after the request was made, and after several excuses already, Kris Biernacki writes:

“I am not able to provide you with most of your FOIL request regarding legal services payments due to the fact that they can not be reasonably obtained.  However, with respect to the records that can be accessed,  I will provide them to you by August 2, 2013.”

Flabbergasted at this incredible response, the requestor writes:

“Am I reading this correctly? Are you telling me (1) that you can’t provide the village of Ravena’s records for legal expenses? That they are cannot be “reasonably obtained?” and (2) that the records that can be accessed can be provided by “August 2, 2013?” Or is that a typo?”

Let the cat out of the bag!

Let the cat out of the bag!

Biernacki writes back, now she’s telling the requestor that Mr Robert Freeman of the Committee on Open Government (Yeah! Right!) is telling her:

Per Robert Freeman, Executive Director of the Committee on Open Government, your demand for the legal services payments dating back to 1990 is not a reasonable request.  The recent information that I can access will be provided to you by the date stated.

So, the requestor, patient and cooperative as always, writes:

“You could have said that earlier. I am amending the request to 2000-present.
” Notwithstanding the amendment, I have been extraordinarily patient in working with the village of Ravena, and agreed to extend on your request for more time because were involved with sewer and water billing. 
“In future and in the case of any future FOIL demand, I would expect the courtesy of a timely response and timely advice if you or your office find a request unclear or “unreasonable.” The handling of this request has been unacceptable.”
 In order to make it easier, the requestor knocks off 10 years and sits back waiting for the next excuse. He doesn’t have to wait long. Kris Biernacki writes:

“This is in receipt to your FOIL amendment.  Again, I will have the information to you on or before August 2, 2013.”

The village of Ravena is saying that it will need more than 114 days to find it’s records on payments made to lawyers. By now the requestor is reasonably irked and writes:

“That, I repeat, is outrageous.
” The FOIL continues as is and the village of Ravena is now in default of its affirmative obligations under the Freedom of Information Law.
” I expressly do not withdraw the FOIL in its currently amended form. The amendment was offered as a courtesy and to facilitate the village of Ravena’s compliance within the time provided by the Freedom of Information Law. “The law is explicit and clear, Mr Freedman does not have legislative authority. The times set forth in the law are explicit and clear, as are the disallowed “excuses” for failure to comply.
” I hereby demand immediate compliance or the village of Ravena’s explicit written refusal to comply.
 “You may want to pass this by Mr Biscone if he’s not too distracted by his sanctions battle. Yes, I’m watching that play out with considerable interest as I hope the local press is.”
 

 scam don't let them con youThis is incredible. It’s outrageous. It’s Ravena. By the way, Mr Robert J. Freeman is “executive director”, of the New York State Committee on Open Government. He’s been on the payroll of the NY Department of State since about 1974—a bit too long, in our honest opinion—Freeman has worked for the New York State Committee on Open Government since its creation in 1974 and was appointed executive director in 1976. He’s a bit too comfy in his little nest he’s created for himself.  Don’t you think there’s something bizarre about a state employee being executive director for more than 36 years?!? Isn’t that a little, corrupt?

Robert J. Freeman

Robert J. Freeman

So here you have this guy, Bob Freeman, who’s really firmly established in what we can reasonably call his little nest for more than 36 years, bloated with power, and making decisions on who gets what from government. A snotty little turd if there ever was one. And guess who’s talking to him about the disclosure of Ravena’s payments to lawyers (Teresi, Biscone, Rotello, Neri): Nancy Bicone-Warner, wife of village justice and ex-cop Harold “Hal” Warner. The same Nancy Biscone-Warner who is knee-deep in Cathy Deluca’s little scam, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. Yes, it’s the same Nancy Biscone-Warner who haunts the village of Ravena offices 25/7, who has everyone there by the short-and-curlies. Now she’s passing on inaccurate information to the Committee on Open Government, trying desperately to avoid having to disclose the village of Ravena’s payments to the local legal incest club.

We know that Nancy Warner was faster than lightning on the phone to Freeman trying to get out of producing documents in regard to another F.O.I.L. And Bob Freeman is playing right along with them. Committee on Open Government? Guess again! Apparently it’s a committee of one: Bob Freeman.

Do you expect anything different out of Albany, the cesspool of democrat corruption. Freeman’s a lawyer. No doubt with connections with Joe Rotello, a clerk  in the Court of Appeals, the Teresis, Ravena shyster Greg Teresi and dirty old dad, Joe Teresi on the NYS Supreme Court, Michael Biscone in Ravena, theyve all got their hands in the cash-box called the village of Ravena. And watchdog gatekeeper Nancy Biscone-Warner ain’t letting anything get by her to upset the little party boat they have floating in taxpayer cash. And don’t expect any help from the Albany County DA, P. David Soares. He likes to party, too.
 
Just a note: The town of Coeymans responded to the very same F.O.I.L. within a couple of days. Now, do you think something’s up in the village of Ravena? Why are they fighting tooth-and-nail to avoid coming up with those documents? Do you think there’s something they don’t want residents to know. Maybe they’re scared shiteless that if you get it, we’ll see it. Do ya think?
 

This Just Adds Another Nail to Ravena’s Coffin. The Village of Ravena Should Be Eliminated and Combined with the Hamlet of Coeymans, Administered by the Town of Coeymans.

Smiling Piggy Wins in the End

Smiling Piggy Wins in the End

Don’t hold it against Kristine Biernacki or Annette Demitraszek. They just do as they’re told— like good little soldiers. Imagine if they make waves or use a village first-class postage stamp on a private mail item, they’re on the street. Mummy mayor John Bruno and hatchet-woman Nancy Biscone-Warner don’t like people with brains (shows them both up). Ravena Mayor John T. Bruno and Nancy Biscone-Warner apparently don’t take prisoners, they just take advantage.

Ravena Continues Criminally Irresponsible Financial Neglect

The Village of Ravena Publishes the Proposed 2013-14 Budget: $115,500 for the Village Fitness Center;
Cathy Deluca to be Director making $30,000+.

Illegal, Exclusive, Expensive

Illegal, Exclusive, Expensive

Do the math: If there are 500 households in Ravena, the fitness outfit will cost each and every household at least $300.00 in 2013-2014!

The Village of Ravena Refuses to Disclose Legal Fees
Financial Irresponsibility Continues in the Village

Village Mayor John T. Bruno is Still Clueless

Mayor John T. Bruno

Mayor John T. Bruno

In a Times Union article following the Office of the NYS Comptroller’s audit of the village of Ravena, ” Audit slams Ravena board. Village officials fail to monitor finances, comptroller warns,” we read:

The Village Board has little control over finances…The audit revealed scant oversight by the board and said the village treasurer has almost exclusive control over finances…It found that the board is not aware of purchases, does not monitor the actual cost of operations versus the budgeted cost, does not approve budget transfers, did not audit the treasurer’s records or the justice court and filed annual financial reports late…
None of the transfers were approved by the board, the audit said… The audit called the village’s purchasing policy outdated, said the policy is not being followed and the board is not monitoring purchases… Two out of three department heads said they were unaware the village had a purchasing policy, and in reviewing claims, a substantial portion of them did not have proper documentation attached…”The mayor stated that the board was not aware that audits of the treasurer’s and the justice court’s records were required to be completed,” the audit said.

More than thirty years on the village payroll and Mayor John T. Bruno still hasn’t got a clue. ‘What, records? Us, keep records? Nah! I don’t know nothin’! Get outta here!”

And Nancy Biscone-Warner, wife of village justice Harold “Hal” Warner, has been treasurer for more than 20 years, and has been re-elected to the position by dumbass voters (probably the Brunos, Biscones, Persicos, Albanos, and a handful of Coeymanazis were enough to vote her in). Now she’s haunting the corridors of village hall 25/7. Why are the village Ravena, NY, reading reports of such incompetence and voting these clowns back into office?!? We don’t get it!!! Shouldn’t these walking-dead from the past be exorcised or something?

Nancy Warner Still Haunts Village Hall

Nancy Warner Still Haunts Village Hall

This blog has reported extensively on the village of Ravena’s backroom deals to evict the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Community Library and create the Ravena Health and Fitness Center. The planning for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center was business as usual in the village of Ravena: it was done secretly. No public hearings, no public comment. Then the village of Ravena went ahead and purchased about $40,000 in used health club equipment from another insider. The $40 grand came out of the public treasury. Again no public hearings or inputs.

We published our prediction that the Ravena-Coeymans Incest Club, the Brunos, Biscones, Warners, Delucas would be setting up a cozy little private spa for themselves and their croneys, as well as providing a plum position for one of their own. Well, as usual our prediction is correct.
The proposed village of Ravena budget is out and here are the figures for the Ravena Health and Fitness Center, which already has its own e-mail and designer logo, again a done deal behind closed doors.

Cathy Long-Deluca

Cathy Long-Deluca

As we predicted, Cathy Deluca has been given the position of fitness center director at a cool salary of $30,000. Is that being paid out of taxpayer monies? Yes! Does it include benefits that not many of us are likely to see? Yes! Is this an insider pick? Yes!

Actually, Cathy Deluca does have some fitness center mismanagement experience. She managed a fitness center when she was still Cathy Long. Remember the fitness center on Main Street? The one that failed?

So let’s have a look at the “budget officers estimates” of what the fitness center is going to cost (the figure below is taken directly out of the proposed budget):

7180 Fitness Center  
130 Director (Cathy Deluca) 30,000.00
151 Hourly Employees 30,000.00
290 Equipment 30,000.00
424 Telephone 500.00
429 Repairsto Equipment 20,000.00
435 Outside Services 2,200.00
436 Unclassified 3,000.00

The Ravena Health and Fitness Center is Estimated to Cost Ravena Residents $115,500 in 2013-14. Can you afford that?

We’d like you to have a close look at item s 290 Equipment and 429 Repairs to Equipment. The village plans to spend another $30,000 on equipment for this misconceived misuse of public money. But what’s really irking us is that they’re budgeting another $20,000 for repairing equipment. They just bought about $40,000 in used equipment, and now they’re planning to spend another $20,000 repairing it. (Do the math: $60,000 in junk, scrap!) Our question is obvious: Who got the kickbacks?

There’s no business plan or anything like planning so the other $5,200 for items 435 Outside Services and 436 Unclassified are still mysteries. But let the imagination go wild on this one!

multicolor rhfcWhile I do not generally advocate taking local dollars out of the community, I must admit that nothing, nothing that the village of Ravena can do can even come close to the opportunities in Glenmont, just down the road with Planet Fitness and it’s beautiful facility, including changing rooms, tanning, instructors, events, sanitation, etc. And all at a ridiculously reasonable price and a variety of plans. But then, the Ravena Health and Fitness Center with all of its misleading hype, is not for you or me, it’s for the Ravena-Coeymans in-crowd.

Once the Coeymanazi bunch makes the Ravena Health and Fitness Center its watering hole, do you think the rest of us will be welcome? Guess again!

BigFatDancingDeluca_sm

How comfortable will you feel with Jerry Dirty-Hands Deluca behind you?

So, cruising down Main Street in Ravena we can take in the Bruno legacy as we approach a centennial: empty storefronts and empty residential buildings. But Ravena has $115,500 dollars in the 2013-14 budget for a fitness center. Go figure!

Moreover, wouldn’t it have been more responsible to have budgeted that $150,000 to support say the RC Teen Center’s programs for the benefit of youth, or perhaps to invested some of it in the RCS Community Library programs, after all the Library is in the geographical territory of the village of Ravena, or maybe some billing software to keep village accounts, especially water and sewer billings, honest. Speaking of water and sewer, how can the village board of Ravena in good conscience budget $150,000 for a health and fitness center of dubious merit, while neglecting the necessary repair of a 100-year old village sewer and drainage system! It’s criminal and Mayor John T. Bruno and his lunatic band of clowns William Bailey, Rocco Persico, Martin Case, and Nancy Biscone-Warner need to do some jail time with co-conspirators Cathy Long-Deluca and Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca!

Lady-Kiss-Hips

Cathy D.: “Gimme a health-club, Mayor Johny!”

We’d also like to remind our readers that the Bruno-Warner-Deluca fitness scam is also at the expense of a community institution, the RCS Community library. The library is funded by tax dollars that property owners in the town of Coeymans pay. You voted on its budget at the same time you voted for the RCS central school district budget, and the members of the RCS school board. The RCS Community Library serves residents of two counties as a result of the funding (actually the town of Coeymans (Albany County) and part of the town of New Baltimore (Greene County). In other words, the RCS Community Library is a publicly funded institution that serves the entire RCS CSD region, plus. The village of Ravena has done everything possible to make the library unwelcome, including raising its rent by an additional $600. That’s $600 of your money.

One of the reasons the RCS Community Library could not leave its location in the Ravena village building is because D. Persico, board member Rocco Persico’s cousin, didn’t have the money to finish the required renovations, and had to qualify for a loan. Normally, when a contractor renegs on a commitment, there are penalties, like Donnie, you’ve got to eat the rent hike? But that’s not how business is done in Ravena-Coeymans, especially in the Incest Club. Rather than impose penalties on the contractor-board-member-cousin who doesn’t have the money to finish the job, the village of Ravena raises the library’s rent by $600!

This situation has to be investigated and we’ll be publishing forms for residents to fill in and cover letters that can be used for submitting complaints to the Office of the State Comptroller and to the Office of the Attorney General, demanding that the operations in the village of Ravena be investigated.

Rocco Persico

Rocco Persico

Isn’t it odd that Rocco Persico is a psychologist on the payroll of the RCS school district and he’s on the village of Ravena board. I really have to ask myself what kind of psychologist Persico is if he’s on the Ravena board and this crazy shite still goes on? Maybe that’s why the high-school kids are so whacked out.


And the Financial Irresponsibility and Criminally Poor Recordkeeping Goes On and On and On…
What is Ravena Shelling Out for Legal Fees?
In Other Words:
What is the Michael Biscone Racket Being Paid?

FOIL
A Local Resident Filed a Demand for Production and Disclosure of the Village of Ravena’s Legal Expenditures. The demand was made under the New York State Freedom of Information Act, which requires public entities–with the exception of courts–to produce and disclose all public access information within a specific period of time.

§84. Legislative declaration. The legislature hereby finds that a free society is maintained when government is responsive and responsible to the public, and when the public is aware of governmental actions. The more open a government is with its citizenry, the greater the understanding and participation of the public in government.

*****

The people’s right to know the process of governmental decision-making and to review the documents and statistics leading to determinations is basic to our society. Access to such information should not be thwarted by shrouding it with the cloak of secrecy or confidentiality. The legislature therefore declares that government is the public’s business and that the public, individually and collectively and represented by a free press, should have access to the records of government in accordance with the provisions of this article.

Yes, every one of us has the right to demand disclosure of information from our government and public agencies. The government and its agencies work for you. Don’t let them forget that fact!

There are laws, the Freedom of Information Law, for example, that lay down the who, what, where, how, and when. And you should know about all of this. For example:

§89. General provisions relating to access to records; certain cases. 3. (a) Each entity subject to the provisions of this article, within five business days of the receipt of a written request for a record reasonably described, shall make such record available to the person requesting it, deny such request in writing or furnish a written acknowledgment of the receipt of such request and a statement of the approximate date, which shall be reasonable under the circumstances of the request, when such request will be granted or denied, including, where appropriate, a statement that access to the record will be determined in accordance with subdivision five of this section. An agency shall not deny a request on the basis that the request is voluminous or that locating or reviewing the requested records or providing the requested copies is burdensome because the agency lacks sufficient staffing or on any other basis if the agency may engage an outside professional service to provide copying, programming or other services required to provide the copy, the costs of which the agency may recover pursuant to paragraph (c) of subdivision one of section eighty-seven of this article.

And so far, the village of Ravena (and the RCS CSD district offices, Dr McCartney. But more on this later.) have obstinately broken the law!

It seems a local resident submitted a demand for disclosure of the village of Ravena’s legal fees, because of the observation that wherever you look there’s either a Biscone or a Teresi doing legal work for the village, the town, private individual, on their own. And given the NYS Comptroller’s observation that nobody seems to know who’s doing what or where the money’s going, it apparently seemed like a good idea to get the official word. Normally, a FOIL works…unless there’s something to hide.

Well, the resident got the runaround and then it was “we need more time because we’re mailing out sewer and water bills.” OK . Call him stupid, but the resident agreed to give them more time. And then…SILENCE. He contacted the village and the clerk tells him that the request is unreasonable, that she does not have access to the records, what she does have she’ll produce by August 2, 2013. WTF! Read the law (especially the parts quoted above)!

For all we have to say about the town of Coeymans, who apparently got the same request at the same time, the Coeymans town clerk responded in a matter of days! Why is it that Ravena needs almost 6 months from the time the FOIL was submitted to the time the village clerk expects to have the records? No way, José!  Well, maybe they don’t have any records. Maybe they don’t want to surrender the records. Maybe someone doesn’t want the records public. Maybe all of the above.

So now the village of Ravena has a choice: either get the documents to the resident or face the consequences. Now we’re on the case and we’ll see it right on through to the Office of the Comptroller and the Office of the Attorney General. And we know of quite a few other residents who’ll be more than happy to join the movement.

Well, dear readers, the law is the law for you and me, and for the village of Ravena. The village of Ravena is now breaking the law and it’s time to go public and demand that the Office of the State Comptroller and the State Attorney General do some poking around. Where are the records, Ravena?

Actually, we’ve hear that Michael Biscone is having his own problems these days. It seems he’s allegedly being sanctioned by the court for some sort of misconduct. We’re trying to lay our hands on the papers and will publish as soon as we can find out the facts. A former partner of Biscone’s, Joe  Rotello, is now in the Appellate Division, the New York State Unified Court System division that is responsible for disciplining attorneys. We just want all concerned to know that we know and that we’ll be watching for any messing around. May Biscone get what’s coming to him!

Obama and Soares Don't Lose with Dignity

Soares, Like His Godfathers Cuomo and Osama, Don’t Lose with Dignity

Here we have a Democrat State Governor, who like a sneak in the night, passes an anti-gun law, violating citizens’ constitutional rights. We then have to hear the Times Useless report that the state of New York is complaining that protestors caused $60,000 in damage to state capitol lawns by walking or standing on the grass. According to the Albany Times Useless:

The Feb. 28 rally at the Capitol building in Albany, NY, will mean a $60,000 bill for the state Office of General Services, the Times Union is reporting. OGS will spend that much to repair the grass at West Capitol Park, in the shadows of the state Capitol.

The Times Union reports that it was a combination of wet, muddy conditions and the large crowd at the rally. The rally was organized to oppose New York’s newly adopted gun control law.

[Source: Business Review, “Albany gun rally led to $60K in Capitol lawn damages,”  April 3, 2013.]

Of course, there’s no mention in the Albany Times Useless that the citizens were exercising at least three rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States: the right of peaceful assembly [and protest], freedom of speech and expression, the right to bear [and own] arms. Gee! Why would the Albany Times Useless support citizens when it can kiss Democrat ass in Albany? No, it wasn’t citizens protesting an ambitious, arrogant Democrat governor’s illegal and immoral act, it was the lawns!

Now, seriously, do you think anything, a single word would have been said if the demonstrators were black or hispanic? Now be honest. The majority of protesters were white men and women, people who own their guns legally—or should I say owned them legally—so they were the usual fair game. Need I say more?

Sore-ass Soares’, he’s got a case of sore ass after getting it kicked so often by federal and state judges, of course he has has a bad case of ego-dysfunction a.k.a. minority complex. But, of course, as a minority, he can do no wrong. So we’re going after the Oreo!

David_Soares bearded

Soares: “It’s nobody’s business.”
Sorry, Bucko, (you arrogant b*&%#@d) you’re an elected official (or did you conveniently forget that fact). It is our business what you do in your office with your personnel! Especially if it involves BOINKING!

And speaking of immoral acts, we must also mention the Albany County District Attorney, P.[udenda] David Soares, who likes to dip his pen[is] into company [p]ink and then, when he gets caught, finds his piece of sugar fluff a job in county government. (Soares’ reaction to reports that he is in a relationship with a legal secretary in his office is that it is “not improper” and is “nobody’s business.” What do you think?) And what about that paradigm of Democrat values, Governor Andrew Cuomo and his live-in girlfriend. Even Roman Catholics are up in arms about his concubinage and his receiving sacraments from ultra-liberal Roman Catholic bishop Howard Hubbard! (Read about it at Cuomo’s Catholic Concubinage.) [Editor’s Note: It must be mentioned that Howard Hubbard’s practices and programs ares not representative of or supported by the mainstream Catholic church hierarchy, most RC bishops, and the majority of Roman Catholics. Obviously, Albany is the best place for him and his supporters.]

Yo' Go Daddy So'Ass. Yo' Got Ma Vote!Now break off a big piece o'dis ass-candy!

Yo’ Go Daddy So’Ass. Yo’ Got Ma Vote!
Now break off a big piece o’dis ass-candy!
Try to control yourselves David, Mario. This is a public blog.

When you really come down to it, when you have no program, no delivery, no convincing message, and you got no style, you have no choice but to pander to the unwashed masses, promising bread (and delivering stones), and you can’t afford not to use the race-card. That’s the only way our Arrogant Oreo Club of Stooges manage to get elected. Look at Barack Hussein Osama…oops! Obama, P.[udenda] David Sore-ass, and Andrew “Sneak-it-in-the-Backdoor” Cuomo, who did all his race purchases while HUD secretary, and promptly blew it all away with his overenthusiasm with the gun bill!

But Here’s the Ultimate in Harassment and Retaliation as Only P.[udenda] David Sore-Ass and His Nazi Keepers Can Do:

P. David Sore-Ass and the RCS Coeymanazis/Albany Political Machine Are Appealing Judge Ryan Donovan’s Decision to Dismiss All Charges Against RCS Board of Education President John M. Vadney.

This is the same tactics used in Nazi Germany and in Stalinist Russia: Take over the police, the courts, and then use them to harass and retaliate. Intimidate the citizen. Overrule justice and law to achieve your nefarious political agendas. Once they make sure everyone knows that the police do not serve and protect and the courts do not administer justice, then we are all slaves to the system.

Obama, Cuomo, Soares, and little trolls like Deluca, Miller and their Minions are Burning the Constitution

Obama, Cuomo, Soares, and little trolls like Deluca, Miller and their Minions are Burning the Constitution

Now, really, we have to ask ourselves several questions:

  • Who is so obsessed with pursuing a case with no merits, no hard evidence, no facts, and no hope of success? Everyone had a fair chance to present what they had, to put their cards on the table, and an impartial judge found that there was no case. What more is to be done, other than retaliate and harass, Mr Sore-Ass?
  • What is the motivation to pursue a case that dragged on and on for almost a year? If the D.A.’s office has such a good case, why didn’t the so-called special prosecutor move forward with it and go to full trial, like Mr Vadney has been demanding all along?
  • Why, if the case was such a slam-dunk, didn’t Soares’ so-called hot-shot special prosecutor run with it, make quick work of it? After all, if the case is worth pursuing and, despite a judge’s ruling dismissing it, still looks so good,it would surely be a no-brainer and “easy money.”
  • Why is this case so important that the Albany County District Attorney, P. David Soares, feels it’s so important to spend more public money and valuable time on it? This isn’t a brutal  murder or robbery case. This isn’t a horrible rape case. This isn’t a high profile political bribery case. In fact, it’s a case that state high court judges have called “unconstitutional.” Several New York state high court judges have refused to prosecute harassment cases because they claim they violate 1st Amendment free speech and free expression rights! So we really have to ask Mr D.A. Sore-Ass, what’s your agenda, Mister? Whose axe are you grinding? What are you getting out of it?

If P. David Sore-ass would take our good advice, he’d benefit from listening to the sentiments of RCS residents regarding the dismissal of the charges against Mr Vadney (go to the RCS Board of Education site and review the video of the April 2 meeting). Residents who took the podium congratulated Mr Vadney on the news of the dismissal and to a man/woman, expressed relief that it was finally over. To a man/woman they admitted that it was a sham and that there was no truth to the charges. Now, Sore-ass, if you can’t read the writing on the wall, let me do it for you: Vadney has community support. You don’t. They think you’re a drug adled jerk for keeping this thing alive.

But then, Albany County D.A. P. David Soares has been made to look stupid by so many judges already, maybe he’s turned into a judge-hater and is just trying desperately to make a come-back. Or maybe he’s just a despicable self-loathing troll who is more into bullying and intimidation than doing a good job. Maybe he just doesn’t have the right stuff and, like Obama, got snookered into getting elected because the Dems like to play the minority card when in a corner.

It’s a he-said-she-said case of one man allegedly calling another man names! Name-calling is what’s being prosecuted and there’s no evidence that Mr Vadney called anyone names. All witnesses will testify that the allegations against Mr Vadney are simply not true!

It’s a case where the first defendant Joseph Edward “Joe” Tracey allegedly has a history of alcohol and drug abuse and Lord knows what else, went ballistic in front of witnesses, harassed Mr Vadney on the telephone with witnesses while on speaker phone, bad-mouthed the Bethlehem Police and got himself arrested and arraigned, had an order of protection issued against him several times, violated the order of protection at least once and admits it in a sworn statement.

We then have this character Joe Tracey making a complaint against, defaming a respected member of the community, a member of the Board of Education, twice elected to be president of the Board of Education, never exhibiting any behavior like that described by Tracey in his complaint. Anyone who knows Vadney knows him to be the picture of dignity, decorum, respect in his conduct of public business as board president, a loving father and husband, in other words, the guy you want to be your neighbor, your friend (and, by the way, he is!). Mr Vadney is the man this Community elected to be their representative to decide what’s good for their children and the RCS community has done that at least three times. His board members, also elected by the RCS Community to make education decisions for their children and their schools, have elected him to be their president, TWICE!

And some nobody, Joseph Edward “Joe” Tracey, a social derelict with a lunatic daughter who was estranged from him for years pops up out of nowhere and harasses not only Mr Vadney but threatens Mr Vadney’s family so that Mr Vadney has to get an order of protection against Tracey to keep him away from Vadney’s family. What does Tracey get from the special-prosecutor assigned by Albany County D.A. Sore-ass Soares, read it in the Albany Times Useless: 6-months probation! That’s the kind of guy you want in charge of your kids’s education, right. That’s the kind of guy you want as your neighbor, right? That’s they kind of guy you want to invite over for spaghetti and meatballs before the game. Is it, really?

Or maybe Soares is so insecure that he’s ashamed that his malicious and prolonged harassment of Mr Vadney on a no merit charge was judiciously and fairly dismissed because of the lack of truth and factual basis. lee kindlonOr is it that Soares’conspiracy with his political sewer friends in Ravena-Coeymans has been foiled by the law firm of his former opponent, Lee Kindlon,  the former prosecutor in the US Marine Corps and son of prominent lawyer Terence L. Kindlon. A smart young attorney, G. Calabrese, of the Kindlon law  firm is representing Mr Vadney. Soares has no military record, much less one that comes even close to Lee Kindlon’s brilliant service (read more about Lee Kindlon here). In fact, Soares, apart from his seedy intimacy with the Coeymans police department, has a reputation for being soft on drug crimes (do you really wonder?) and made some comments at a conference in Vancouver, Canada, that angered American law enforcement, attracted criticism from Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings, and harsh comments from the Police Union, including demands for Soares’ resignation. Maybe his softie attitude on drugs and his animosity towards professional (not Coeymans p.d.) law enforcement should get Soares disbarred (see A call for David Soares to resign). He’s had some serious ethical problems and has been reprimanded a number of times. Let’s see, soft on drugs, doesn’t like law enforcement, minority votes. Is there a connection here? Do you think Soares is pandering for his minority votes?

The Coeymanazi Trio of Stooges: Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, Jerry’s Bleach-Bottle Cathy Deluca, and Matthew “Matt-the-Mutt” Miller
A toxic Mix of Police Corruption, Moll and Union Involvement ties in With the Abuse of Public Office and Albany Corruption by D.A. Sore-Ass

We’ve reported extensively on all of these characters: the Deluca Duo and Matt-the-Mutt. The Deluca Duo have a long history of Coeymanazi activity. Miller has an axe to grind because the Vadney board refused to renew Miller’s plum double-dipper position as “energy manager” that netted him a cool additional $10–18K a year of taxpayer and school budget money in addition to his outrageous teacher salary and benefits. Miller is the local teacher union, New York State United Teachers a.k.a. NYSUT representative. Miller’s been knocked down to size by the board in recent months, thanks also to superintendent Dr Alan R. McCartney’s zero-tolerance of trouble-makers.

Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” has a colorful history. BoBo Cop allegedly received a degree from SUNY Plattsburg in political science (Do you believe that?) but apparently has no law enforcement or criminal justice education or training that would qualify him for his position as “police investigator” on the Coeymans police department. Apparently also, he’s extremely unpopular with the department, except for his adoring relationship with police chief Gregory Darlington. So why’s he there? Ask thug-collector Gregory “DoDo Cop” Darlington.

Deluca has his fingers in a number of pies, besides Cathy’s. He says in his online résumé that he’s a consultant with ARANY, an automotive recycling organization. He says he’s a consultant with the NY state Department of Environmental Conservation, a principal in Deluca Public Affairs (no pun intended), and a director at the so-called Main Street Small Business Coalition. He also says he was a former employee with the NY state Assembly (No one we contacted at the NY state Assembly knows anything about him, though). But his alleged connections with the DEC and with ARANY (note that bottle-blond Cathy is wearing a pink ARANY sweater in the pix above) raises some questions of conspiracy and misuse of public office, given some of the harassment that has been going on recently of local businesses and residents by the DEC and local officials close to Coeymans town government, especially the town building inspector, Laverne “Larry” Conrad, and others.

So, either Deluca is falsifying his résumé and he is lying about his business contacts or he is telling the truth and is compromising his objectivity as a police employee, and possibly misusing his public position and privileges to benefit his other “business” activities. I say an investigation is in order here and call upon the State Attorney General to investigate Deluca’s “connections.”

Deluca recently made a very disturbing remark at a school board meeting when he allegedly stated that he knew how people voted. (Board of Education Meeting of 3/26/13. Deluca: “Last year there was a number of people on the board that voted for the budget here at the meeting. I am concerned that some of those who voted for it at the meeting went out and voted against it.”) Now how and where would he have access to such information. Isn’t our vote supposed to be secret? Is Deluca misusing police information resources? But how would the police get our voting information? Or is he working with someone else, too? Board president J. Vadney responded: “The board of education approves a budget to go out to the public; the personal votes of the members are personal, confidential, if not secret.” Didn’t you know that BoBo?

But maybe that’s the secret to Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca’s longevity. It’s very possible that Deluca has been misusing his police privileges and access to privileged information all along to access background information and then to use it to his or his friends’ advantage. Now wouldn’t that be a nice fat official investigation. Could send old “Dirty-Hands” down the river for a couple of years. Nah! His bed-buddy Soares probably would get him off with 6-months probation. Maybe he’s got some dirt on Soares?

Is Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca A Dirty Cop?

Is Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca A Dirty Cop?

And then we have the local Coeymanazis and the teachers clique on the RCS Board of Education. You must have noticed that there’s a power war going on between the teachers and the teachers union, New York State United Teachers, represented locally by Matthew J. Miller a.k.a. Matt the Mutt. You can’t have forgotten already the underhanded tactics used by Miller, the Deluca pair, Dirty-Hands Jerry and his Bleach-Bimbo, Cathy Deluca, and you can’t ignore the results of the investigations and the complaints by residents centering on the voting and polling irregularities? You’d have to have advanced Alzheimer disease to have forgotten all of that already, especially with new elections just on the horizon.

So, our guess is that our Albany County D.A. friend, P. David Sore-Ass, is working hand-in-glove with the Coeymanazis and the teachers union, New York State United Teachers (NYSUT, Matt Miller’s godfathers) to attempt to oust Vadney from the BoE. Once Vadney’s gone, they will go after the other members supporting Vadney. When that’s done, your at the mercy of the union and the Coeymanazis. Next, they’ll get rid of Dr McCartney and put one of their puppets in the position. Now the teachers, the teachers union, the Coeymanazis in Ravena-Coeymans, and the Democrat Machine in Albany has control of the schools here, and the school budget. Watch RCS become a ghost town before your very eyes!

You can’t have overlooked the attempts by board members and teachers or teacher’s spouses on the RCS board of election to force other elected board members to resign. Of course, the public saw through those stupid attacks and told Alice Whalen, Howard “Bray” Engel, James Latter, Tracey Traver (former member, not relected), Josephine Tracey-O’Connor (disgraced former BoE member, daughter of Joe Tracey of misdemeanor harassment fame), and Edward “Teddy” Reville, and loudmouths Deluca, and their Coeymanazi mob to “Shut up” and get on with board business! Even Matt-the-Mutt Miller of double-dipping-bully-monger fame has had to curb his union-speak and shut up for once.

They all came out in arms and screaming when they found out Dr Alan R. McCartney was to be hired to fix the mess created by outgoing teachers union lacky Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith. Matt-the-Mutt Miller was frothing in his denunciations of both the Vadney-led board and of Dr McCartney, as were “concerned” parents. Sure, they loved being the bottom feeders of the regional schools with the highest per student cost ($21,000) in the region, maybe even the state, and some of the lowest graduation rates. How dare they consider Dr McCartney, who had Vorheesville’s grad rates up in the high 90’s. They dreaded McCartney. Why? Because he is a professional superintendent hell-bent on getting results and trimming fat. McCartney’s not one of the local teachers, like Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, whose loyalties were clearly not with the residents and taxpayers! (Are you surprised that after having taken the superintendent’s position she stayed long enough to pad her retirement check (less than a year) and then hit the community with a surprise retirement announcement?)

And then there are the loudmouths who have some pretty shadey connections. Take local loudmouth Gerald “Jerry Dirty-Hands Deluca” who, as we mentioned above,  is on the payroll of the Coeymans police department as an “investigator.” Deluca has no police investigator credentials, was fired by the previous police chief, and re-hired by the present Coeymans police chief Gregory Darlington (who had to take the chiefs exam at least 3 times before he could pass the thing!). Darlington has also hired local Psycho-Cop Ryan Johnson (a reject from the Cairo p.d.); Johnson’s likely to be the driver of the Coeymans police vehical that races down the road in a bad case of road rage. Darlington also hired his brother-in-law Kerry Thompson to be his personal admin assistant at more than $31/hour, and who employs a number of part-timers from outside the community to police this community.

If you’ve ever driven in the town of Coeymans and seen a police vehicle coming from the opposite direction and can’t stay on its side of the road, or if you see a Coeymans police  vehicle with its wheels in the air, you’re also likely to see a blond female behind the wheel. That’s Coeymans police officer D. Crosier–drives like a drunk, crossing the centerline, migrating over to the shoulder, occasionally wrecking a Coeymans police vehicle. She’s another prize bimbo addition to Darlington’s credit.

Stop This Brew Before It Infects You, Too!

Stop This Brew Before It Infects You, Too!

Add to this toxic stew the unbelievable involvement of local Coeymans town attorney Gregory Teresi (Dem), son of NY state Supremse Court judge Joseph Teresi (Dem)  (formerly a village and town attorney in Ravena-Coeymans), the corrupt practices in the village of Ravena government with its incestuous relationships and intermarriages between village trustees and town and village justices, the involvement of the shyster family of Biscones and their former partners the Rotellos, who is now working with the NY state Appellate Divison, the NY state court that hears appeals and is in charge of attorney discipline. Then you have the real-estate moguls and their connections in village and town government and the abuse of public office that goes on between the town of Coeymans, the office of the building inspector, and the DEC, and you can’t but hold back the vomit.

weeping liberty 1

Yes, there’s a very toxic stew brewing, as you can see. There’s Albany County Democrat Machine Corruption, local corruption in the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans, and then there’s union involvement with the New York State United Teachers.

We eased off the scoundrels in recent months because they seemed to be quieting down but they’ve been quietly hatching plots. Crooks never give up because they’re infected with the worm of greed and avarice. They’re lousy with the lice of pride. But they’re blind to their own evil and that’s where we get them.

Albany Times Union Publishes Sequel to Our Articles!

We’ve Said It So Many Times Before! And It’s Still True As It Ever Was!

Well, Maybe Not New News...Just Old News.

Well, Maybe Not New News…Just Old News.

 We Scoop the Albany Times Union (owned by the Hearst Corportation) and Local Comatose Rags by Publishing Solid Facts Way Before the Times Useless and the Hudson Catskill Newspapers (a division of Johnson Newspapers Corp.)

The Albany Times Union’s Fred Lebron Follows Our Lead And Writes on Public Corruption and Schools! But it’s the Times Useless’ undisguised usual finger-pointing, doom-and-gloom, anxiety- and fear-mongering. Factoids. Why do they even bother?

You're Burning Down Your Own Houses.

You’re Burning Down Your Own Houses.

In our recent articles on this blog we pointed out the major obstacles to making life livable in this community and in the bigger picture.  This blog actually started back in May 2012, when we had to come out and draw the public’s attention to the corruption that was going on in the schools, especially what was going on in the RCS central school district budget voting and the deception that was created by the RCS CSD teachers association, its president, double-dipping, bully-mongering, loose-lipped teacher Matt “the Mutt” Miller, the idiot interim superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith, a teachers union lackey, and the teachers clique on the RCS CSD board of education, Alice Whalen, Howard “Bray” Engel, James Latter,  former member Josephine Tracey-O’Connor of “He Called Me Fat” fame, and former member Tracey Traver, together with the Coeymanazi mob under the direction of Gerald “Dirty Hands Jerry” Deluca, assisted by his partner, Cathy Deluca, and their minions.

Dumb-as-Dirt David Soares

Dumb-as-Dirt David Soares

And we’ve courageously gone after that scandal-looking-for-a-place-to-happen,  P[udenda] David Soares, the renegade Albany County District Attorney, the disgrace of a chief county law enforcement officer, Soares, when he’s not getting a reprimand by federal judges, or hes not dipping his pen[is] into company ink[wells], he’s getting his inkwells special appointments, or simply maliciously prosecuting local residents. Pundenda-obsessed Dave is merely a tool of the machine; he’s to stupid for anything else and too corrupt and immoral (read: amoral) for any other place. A graduate of the boys’ club called Albany Law School, he’s ethnic, and a West African immigrant, he’s in like flint as the “token” in the in-appearance-only ultra-liberal Albany political machine (when it comes to pandering for votes) as long as he kisses his handler’s mechanically conservative asses (the spirit of Erastus Corning delights). Soares has no self-esteem and no morals so he’ll do just about anything…or anyone. He’s gotten his share of space on this blog, too.

We followed the harassment and conspiracy that was hatched to malign board of education members by the Coeymanazis, no doubt with the assistance of the teachers association and the backing of the New York State United Teachers union, NYSUT.

a.k.a. Bobo Cop

As residents and citizens started to see the light and the writing on the wall, we moved on to uncovering corruption and the crooks in the RCS communities, most conspicuously the village of Ravena and the town of Coeymans, especially the Coeymans Police Department. There was plenty of scandal to go a long way, and it kept us busy for a year reporting on the truth while the Albany Times Union and its junk journalists concentrated on partisan (read Coeymanazi) low-life scandal reporting, obviously fed rubbish by the local Coeymanazis and their keepers in Albany.

His Honor, the Mayor.John Bruno is Mayor of Ravena, NY.

His Honor, the Mayor.
John Bruno is Mayor of Ravena, NY.

And then there’s Ravena. What would Ravena be without a nest of corruption housed in the village hall. What would Ravena be without a senile ill-tempered godfather in Depend®, mayor John Bruno,  presiding over his court of blathering inbred Bruno, Persico, Biscone, Albano dwarves, the Delucas and the Warrens cowing and bowing to get their carrion-toxic talons into anything of value. We covered their latest larceny: the Bruno-Deluca-Warren Memorial Fitness Center and their feeble and misguided attempts to oust the RCS Community Library so that Cathy Deluca and Nancy Warren could prance and pose in their “own” fitness club–or is it a dairy farm–they “purchased” with Ravena taxpayer money to the tune of $40 grand!

eat-more-brainsYes! We were then and continue to be the bastions of Truth in this community while the Albany Times Union (a.k.a. Times Useless), the Ravena News Herald, and other local rags, including the local television sharks on  News Channel 10, News Channel 6, and News Channel 13 continued their tabloid journalism licking at the stale blood drawn by the Coeymanazi ambushes, and writing award-winning pornographic fiction based (almost) on slightly true facts creatively altered and embellished, but a final version of “facts” a.k.a. factoids. When they weren’t doing the Coeymanazi’s dirty work in print, they were days, even weeks late on the so-called stone-dead-cold “stories”, and stories they were, most of the time following on the heels of articles already posted on this blog. And you pay for the stale pulp fiction reported in that mass of advertising called  the Albany Times Union or that major collection of public notices called the Ravena News Herald. I just don’t get it.

Those of you who have been regular readers and who have signed up for e-mail notification of new articles and comments (You can follow this blog by clicking on FOLLOW ME in the upper right margin and entering your e-mail.)  Are very well-informed about the goings-on beneath the surface on the board of education, in the schools, and in the village and town boards.

More recently we published our observations about the Coeymans town board’s outrageous decision to award MidHudson Cablevision a 15-year exclusive contract for cable and Internet services (read Ravena-Coeymans: The Land of Goofy!) and followed that article with a sequel and update on that shameful betrayal by the Coeymans town board of residents in the town of Coeymans (read Sequel to “Land of Goofy”).

We drew attention to the fanatical and villainous presentation by John Anthony in the recent presentation that totally distorted the doctrine of “sustainable development,” striking fear and anxiety in an already paranoid local population. We tore that stupid propaganda a part in our article, Need More Unconstructive Anxiety?, and cast shame and disgrace on the organizers for having imposed such arrogant and misinformation propaganda on local citizens and voters!

Again, in an idiotic article degrading the pages of the already base Ravena News Herald by Bryan Rowzee that centered on local Coeymanazi building inspector Laverne “Larry” Conrad, while misquoting American poet laureate, Robert Frost, and quoting Laverne Conrad.

You may remember Laverne “Larry” Conrad as  part of the comedy duo, “Laverne and Surly“, who appear regularly on the Coeymans Comedy Channel (MidHudson Cablevision’s public access channel 11), featuring cameos by Tarty Tom Dolan, BoboCop Jerry Deluca, DodoCop Gregory Darlington, Bobo and Dodo doing their ” Wild West Keystone Cops” clown act, the Surly Siblings (Stephen Flack, Thomas “Tom” Dolan of MidHudson Cable fame, Peter Masti, Thomas Boehm, Dawn Rogers) as well as the Juggling Justices Gregory Dardiani and Harold “Hal” Warren who dress up as judges and make a mockery of the law (assisted by evil shyster clowns Gregory Teresi and Michael J. Biscone).

Well, in that News Herald article, Rowzee quotes Frost incorrectly and makes the mistake of quoting Laverne “Larry” Conrad. Read our article at Coeymanazi Building Inspector Conrad and you’ll get a good laugh…or a good cry.

Our article on the reverse Robin Hood shell game being played by Washington with taxpayer money focused on the reality of the misuse of the American taxpayer and how the feds take the food from your mouths to pay for the foor placed in the mouths of dictators and revolutionaries (covertely, of course) private jets of foreign government officials.
Waxing Whimsical: Why the US and You Have no $$$ ! tells the true story of why our communities, businesses, schools, and communities are in such dire straits.

And now Democrat Sec’ty of State Kerry and King Obama bin Ladin are prepping us to get involved in the Syrian conflict! More taxpayer $$$BILLIONS$$$ hemorrhaging out of the country to support causes of little or no interest to the Coeymans or Selkirk resident–or to anyone with any serious interest in day-to-day survival! When are you going to say STOP! In the meantime, you can continue collecting empty beer cans à la Cathy Deluca to send your kids on school field trips, while she’s posing for mayor Bruno in their “community” fitness center with Nancy Warner–at a cost of more than $40 grand of your tax money, plus their salaries! Disgusting!

Now back to the Albany Times Union, Fred Lebrun, and the Sequel to Articles on this blog…

A reader drew our attention to an article that appeared in the Albany Times Union on Sunday, February 24, 2013, and written by Fred Lebrun, a fossil writer for the Albany Times Useless who occasionally pops up with an opinion. The article is entitled: LeBrun: Tax cap denies a ‘sound, basic’ education system and is basically a commentary (now you know how much fact it contains).

We’ll just post a couple of quotes from the article with some short comments, and you can make the rest of the connections and draw your own conclusions.

The governor’s beloved 2 percent tax cap was challenged in a lawsuit filed by the New York State United Teachers union in state Supreme Court in Albany. The suit offers multiple arguments why the tax cap is unconstitutional, asserting that it locks in unequal funding between have- and have-not school districts across the state, ”while pushing many school districts to the brink of educational and financial insolvency,” in the words of NYSUT President Dick Iannuzzi. [my emphasis]nysut

Matthew J. "Matt-the-Mutt" MillerNYSUT Union Rep at RCS

Matthew J. Miller
“Matt-the-Mutt”

NYSUT Union Rep at RCS

 Right away, you should see red: our beloved special interest, rape the taxpayer organization, the New York State United Teachers, NYSUT, godparents of our very own teachers union lackey, Matt “the Mutt” Miller, is bringing the suit. Now you know it’s not good news for the taxpayer no matter what Lebrun says. But you must already know what’s coming next: doom, gloom, suspicion, dark days ahead, you’re losing your schools, your children are going to be eaten by aliens, etc. You know, the same-old-same-old whenever NYSUT raises its double-dealing-double-dipping head.

It is irrefutable that the effect of the incomplete tax cap passed in June 2011, while politically popular and a contributor to the governor’s high standing, has been disastrous for school districts and local governments.

Your tax dollars at work.

Your tax dollars at work.

That self-destructive attitude and the greed of the teachers union and its members, the teachers, are what’s killing the districts. Millions are being spent on the mismanaged, wasteful money pits we call schools that are turning out idiots at graduation. Why? Because the majority of parents and taxpayers are indifferent and don’t get involved with how their districts are managed or how their elected officials in Albany and Washington are turning their backs on their communities.

Just read some of the articles on this blog and you’ll know too well why our schools and local governments are turning into liquid waste.

Sadly, we are watching a catastrophe unfold that will deeply affect many of our children at their most vulnerable ages, and which will have consequences for the rest of their lives.

The State Education Department has warned that between 100 and 200 school districts will be insolvent within two years.

Mr "Fred-in-a-Funk" LebrunWrites on Our Schools. DUH!

Mr “Fred-in-a-Funk” Lebrun
Writes on Our Schools.
DUH!

Lebrun must have been asleep for the last several years! The catastrophe has been unfolding for some time now, Mr Lebrun. We’re right in the epicenter of it. DUH! Yes, Mr Lebrun, we are all aware of that fact but not many of our readers, sadly, have the guts or the balls to open their eyes, tighten their belts, and turn on the lights to see the writing on the wall. Again, read our articles and learn why the schools suck, why the kids are idiots, why the board of education is stymied in getting anything really effective done with the teachers special interests working against them, and why the local communities are drowning in their own raw sewerage with Coeymanazis like the town of Coeymans board, the local Coeymanazi police force, and the Coeymanazis on the street doing everything they can to have it their way or no way. Do you really think that business want to operate in a backwoods, Neanderthal community that is so business-unfriendly, corrupt, or that families want to live like that. Look around you and watch the exodus!

The multi-year highway to insolvency for many of them will be already littered with discarded teachers and administrators, dropped programs and advanced placement courses required for college admission, and cuts, cuts and more cuts impacting the core teaching mission.

Look, this didn’t happen over night, people! And it’s not going to get cured over night, either. What Lebrun is writing is crap, to be very honest. He, like so many others, are doing your bloody thinking for your and framing your life according to their views! YOU NEED TO DO YOUR OWN THINKING. BUT FIRST YOU HAVE TO GET BACK TO REALITY!

Reality.

Reality.

Look, you bunch of lemmings: You can’t keep taking without putting back in, people!

  • Do you drive your car without replacing the fuel used? Of course not. You’d be stuck in nowhere in no time!
  • Do you drive your car with a flat tire? Of course not, you’d cause more and more damage to the car the longer you drive! What was a small repair now is a major disaster!
  • Do you keep driving at 55 mph when you enter a 30 mph speed zone, even when warned that speed is checked by radar? Of course you don’t. If you did you’d lose your driving privileges in a very short time and be taking a mortgage to pay your fines and super-fines!So why do you drive the economy by taking away without replacing or not making necessary repairs and adjustments? Why do you damage the environment without repairing the damage you cause?

Why do you keep taking from the cookie jar without replacing the cookies and then complain that there are no more cookies? That’s the simplified state of facts. It all starts with Y-O-U!

Yes, the fast track to damnation will be littered with teachers, programs, administrators, advance placement programs. Why? Because they are not working and are costing an arm and a leg. They are NOT WORKING and are killing what does work: You and Me!

Look teachers are nice but they’re out for themselves. To think differently means you have your head in a fog. What the teachers don’t grab to make their lives easier the teachers union will grab for them. Guess who’s going to foot the bill for the $80-120 thousand plus salaries plus enhancements, plus benefits, plus summers off, and some very hefty pensions (after they move out of the district, like former interim superintendent Elizabeth “Betsy” Smith has done after padding her pension!). You and Me!

You’ve been paying for programs and administrators that have been substandard and that’s not only in this district. Sure they have to go! You’d have to go if you did on your job what they manage to do and stay employed! Abusing students. Indifference to student welfare. Bullying students. Having students bully other students. Just being jerks.

And “advance placement programs?” What a load of purest propagandist rubbish! Why isn’t “advanced” the standard like it is in Germany, Japan, Russia? I’ll give you a little hint: because parents like to delude themselves into thinking that little Johnny or Ginny is something special. WAKE UP! They’re far from special and in comparison to students in other countries they’re far below average! Our colleges are crap, too, because they attempt to educate the average who come to the colleges with below average abilities. Why? Because our colleges are not in the business of education…they’re more in the business of doing research for corporations or are in the real estate business! Our kids get advance placement on the international stupids list!

There are plenty of statistics and studies to document just how poorly the American student is doing in comparison with Europe and Asia. It ain’t pretty. Here are just two: Alliance for Excellent Education-Fact Sheet (March 2008), USA Today: In ranking, U.S. students trail global leaders. It’s downright embarrassing! And to think that with a graduation rate in a mid-70% range at the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk  Central School District  our per student expenditure is more than $21,000, we should be asking some very hard questions, indeed!

Why is that, parents? Don’t blame it all on the self-serving teachers. The teachers want the same thing you do: cars, houses, money, vacations, time off, etc. Blame it on yourselves for your own greed and indifference to the welfare of your offspring! Try parenting instead of getting more stuff. Try socializing your asocial cave creatures. Try teaching them respect (for others and themselves). Try teaching them how to be members of a community. Try teaching them how to love and be loved (and I don’t mean loving their own stuff or someone else’s–translate “stuff” any way you please). Give them a home not a car to live in. They don’t need A.S.A.P. programs or Teen Centers, they need parents. Real moms and dads!  Need I go on or are you finally catching on.

Or what's left of it.

Or what’s left of it.

As for the so-called adults among us: You had a brain at birth but through chronic misuse or unuse it’s gotten a bit screwed up. Maybe you’re reading the Times Union pulp fiction too much, or watching your MidHudson Cable ripoff too long. But you really need to make some corrections in your own lives, in the community, and then you can start on the bigger picture. But first you have to relearn how to use what gray matter might still be left after exposure to the fiction you have been fed by the media, by your leaders, by yourselves.

And the Times Union and the other media can start with themselves or suffer the consequences. The local elected officials who have been screwing you for years have to go. What we need is an ethical print and electronic media system that publishes true facts and less mistake, error and fear. The media and the government is misusing you and misinforming you, controlling you by making you suspicious of others and keeping you anxious and fearful. You actually have control if you’d only take it.

You need to get involved, though. You have to stop leaving it to someone else. That’s not how it works. Or you can stay stuck where you are. It’s your choice.
