Dirty-Hands Jerry: “We don’t care…”

Dirty-Hands Jerrry Has Resurfaced and Arrogantly Thinks He’s the Spokesperson for the Entire RCS Central School District: “We don’t care what the other schools do!” Well, We Don’t Care What You Care About, Jerry, Either.

Dirty-Hands Jerry Don’t Care!

 According to Gerald “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca, the RCS parents and residents shouldn’t care what other districts are doing. That profound bit of lunatic wisdom came during the public statement portion of the September 4, 2012, RCS board of education meeting, when Deluca made a cameo appearance after months of invisibility. Deluca was remarkably understated and gentle when he took the podium, even timid. We can only guess what the effects of his long withdrawal and quiet time might have been (was it imposed by the Ravena-Coeymans godfather, we wonder?). He was getting too mouthy and uppity, anyway. No one missed him or his bottle baglady partner Cathy Deluca  nor his lapdog R.J. D’Esposito. But school’s in session and they’re back so we might as well get used to it.

Damn! Just when the neighborhood started to look good again!

Deluca made the statement, apparently on behalf of the Coeymanazi mob, because all previous speakers were apalled at the article published in the Sunday Times Useless, “Big tab, mixed results. State’s per pupil cost is tops in U.S., but outcomes elusive” (S. Waldman, Sept 1, 2012) (Click here to read the entire article.)

The article reports per pupil expenses for some area school districts for the 2010-2011 school year (the most recent available). RCS is the highest cost per pupil of the entire group! Why is that?

  • Albany: $19,723
  • Ballston Spa: $16,248
  • Bethlehem: $17,026
  • East Greenbush: $17,980
  • Guilderland: $15,906
  • Niskayuna: $17,398
  • Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk: $21,011
  • Saratoga Springs: $14,760
  • Schenectady: $16,519
  • Shenendehowa: $15,014
  • South Colonie: $16,173
  • Troy: $19,792
  • Voorheesville: $18,176

But Dirty-Hands Jerry doesn’t think that’s significant because, Deluca wants us all to know that he’s there  “to remind people is that this school district does so  many good things for kids and wehn I hear people stand up and say we’re not Bethlehem or we’re not Balston Spa. No, we’re not. We’re RCS and we do very good things and we want to do the best we can for our kids. We don’t care what other schools do.”

Well, Mr Deluca, some of us do care what other districts are doing. We’re not into this isolation thing you seem to worship. We live in a world where we need to be aware of what’s going on around us. We need to compare and, by comparing, learn from others. We’re not as wise and all-knowing as you seem to think you are, Jerry. If this district is the most expensive out of some 13 districts surveyed, there’s really something wrong here. When Bethlehem and Ballston Spa and Albany can do it for less, there’s something really wrong in this district and we’d better hurry up and find out what it is. Any ideas, Jerry?

And we’d better care what the other districts are doing because the state and federal education authorities have a silly little thing they call comparisons. They tend to like to compare things, especially, school performances (and RCS’s performance, despite the hype, is pretty mediocre) costs per pupil, and they tend to ask some very sticky questions when things start to look a little odd, like in the RCS district. Didn’t you know that, Jerry? But you’re special, aren’t you? You don’t have to care. Well the rest of us do, Jerry, so Shut up and disappear, Jerry!

Jerry Deluca and his mob crammed the 2012-13 RCS school budget down your throats, now you’re seeing where that great advice got you all! What about all you Yes! voters who are now screaming bloody murder that you’re going to have to pay more to use school facilities? How do you all feel now that the teachers clique and the Deluca mob has led you down the rosey path to oblivion? Maybe now you’ll start listening to the real people, the business persons on the board of education and stop pointing the finger!

(Has anyone bothered to ask what the RCS school district is charging Cathy Deluca and her gang for the use of the school property for the so-called RCS Bottle Blitz? That’s not an official program of the RCS school district, either. The RCS Bottle Blitz is an entirely privately organized activity that has nothing to do with the RCS Central School District. So Cathy Deluca and Loraine Misuraca, you have to make a request, the request must be discussed by the BoE, and you have to pay for the use of the facilities. O.K.? Are you thinking about that, Superintentent Elizabeth R. Smith?)

Residents and Property Owners, You’d Better Start Asking Some Very Serious Questions Why the RCS CSD is Costing Property Owners more than $21,000 per pupil! There’s A Big Hole Somewhere and Your Money’s Leaking Into a Big Pit (a.k.a. a cesspool of corruption). (New Baltimore Residents had Better Start Doing Some Investigation, Too, Because You’re the Heaviest Taxed of Any of the RCS Locales! You need to consider why this is so when thinking about whether to re-elect your current town board mafia members. New Baltimore, you need to wake up, too! You’re being snookered.)

Jerry Deluca Doesn’t Care
The RCS CSD Is A Money Pit!

Unholy, Downright Evil Alliances

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

It’s Amazing…No! It’s Terrifying to Learn How Evil Finds Allies

We’ve Learned that “Dirty-Hands Jerry” Deluca Has Hooked Up With His Evil Clown-Twin, a Specialist in Special Effects, Theater Sets, and Other Sorts  of Deception, John Luckacovic.

Luckacovic was, until recently, living in New Baltimore, but has since left to pollute Columbia county. Luckacovic has little or nothing to do with RCS and, apart from owning property in New Baltimore, like so many downstaters, has little or no connection with the area, EXCEPT: A pathological urge to stick his pitted nose into everyone else’s life and to control.

The similarities between the Deluca method and the Luckacovic method are astounding:

First of All:
They Look Alike!

In a beautifully written comment, one reader recently made an appeal to the ringleaders in the RCS Coeymanazi gang:

One last thing, please if you happen to be one of the couples that this blog focuses on, for your own good, sit back, stop reading this, and enjoy your family. It is hurtful to me as an outsider to see anyone with family being made a mockery of. If you step back and get out of the limelight, it will go away and someday just be a bad memory.

We don’t think that the reader meant that you should go back into the shadows, into the Twilight Zone, and continue to do your mischief from behind the scenes; what the reader obvously meant is “Give it a rest! Give the community a rest!”  “Dirty-Hands” Deluca apparently didn’t read it that way and, instead, is making some new friends…At least that’s what we’ve learned from new information we’ve received.

You may recall that early last May we published our article “A Little History Lesson,” in which we tell the parable of the dangers of social media, misinformation, and how people who, on the surface, appear to be community spirited are, in fact, really trolls inside. Well, it may behoove our readers to keep that article in mind when reading this report.

See if you can pick out John Luckacovic below

During the New Baltimore Water Wars Luckacovic and another evil import to the sleepy hamlet of New Baltimore, Joan Ross and hubby Bob Ross, managed to divide the New Baltimore community into previously unimaginably opposing groups. Luckacovic’s and Ross’ vitriolic anonymous publications created an atmosphere of suspicion, hate, and animosity in a previously harmonious hamlet. Sound familiar? It should! Remember the tactics used during the campaigning leading up to the budget vote?

Luckacovic and the Rosses had absolutely no interest in the community’s wellbeing or in progress. Their interest was simply seizing control and they did it by ambush and deceit. In fact, no sooner had Joan Ross enlisted the unwary cooperation of several New Baltimore residents than she cleverly coined the term, New Baltimorons, for her beloved neighbors! How’s that for community spirit?  Sound familiar?

Throughout the entire process Luckacovic and the Ross pair managed to appear squeaky clean, while misusing neighbors and lackeys to go out and do the dirty work. Sound familiar?

When a neighbor found out what Luckacovic and the Ross pair were up to and what they were conspiring, he denounced them and their methods, and rallied the community to wake up and see what they were up to. Sound familiar?

The plan to provide the New Baltimore hamlet with a much-needed public water supply, thanks to the efforts of Luckacovic and the Ross pair, was defeated. The hamlet of New Baltimore continues to have water problems.  The New Baltimore water project, in the planning for years, might have put New Baltimore somewhere on the map, but its defeat condemned New Baltimore to remain in the 18th century. We saw a replay in the May 15, 2012 school budget vote. The similarity between the two is mind-boggling!

Was the Deluca gang getting tips from the diabolic Luckacovic-Ross clowns?

Then, when a local resident ran for town justice in an effort to oust the corrupt and ignorant fixtures embeded in the town administration and to bring positive change to New Baltimore, the retaliation and smearing began again. They spared no-one, not family, not children, not friends, no one! Everyone and anyone associated with the candidate, even his honorable military service was fair game to the ambush cowards. Sound familiar?

Hiding behind the smoke screen of letters to the editor and paid advertisements they tried every trick in the book to smear the candidate, even enlisting outsiders to create scandalous rumors and get them published. The frauds committed and the evil done and condoned by Luckacovic and the Rosses through their lackies and ignorant henchmen was unbelievable…but Luckacovic and the Rosses were crazy like foxes…they managed to get others to do their dirty work while they sat back and played squeaky clean. They enlisted two henchmen, Richard Benham (an Austrian, now dead) and Scott Horne (an American who denounced his citizenship and now a Canadian citizen), both of whom had axes to grind (both were rejected by the candidate when they applied for jobs).

Not enough? Well, they also enlisted the Smalbany Times Useless to print their lies and even got their lackies to feed the idiot reporter, Guess Who? Scott Waldman, to print them. Sound familiar?

They Like The Same Things:
They’re Cannibals!

The cast of characters gets even more similar. When the defamed candidate took Luckacovic and the Rosses to court to answer for their lies, he did so representing himself, since the evidence was so overwhelming against Luckacovic and the Rosses. Somehow, according to a local insurance agent who at the time was carrying Luckocvic’s homeowners (was it Sturges?), Luckacovic tried to get the insurance company to cover his defense. He must have finagled some other creepy deal because he got his defense paid for by insurance, as did the Rosses, who all of a sudden were “employed” by Luckacovic’s company…was there insurance fraud involved?The case was assigned to Guess Who? Joe Teresi, former village and town attorney, now NYS supreme court  judge, father of former village and town attorney Greg Teresi. Little did the candidate know but Joe Teresi had been disciplined not once, but twice for anti-pro se bias; in other words, Teresi was disciplined for his tendency to abuse people who appear in court representing themselves! Fancy that! The New York State Unified Court System assigns a case in which the accuser is suing and representing himself to a judge, Joe Teresi, who they must have known had a record of abuse against persons representing themseves. Well, Teresi performed his role faithfully, and let the lawyers and Luckacovic and Ross trample justice and make a mockery of the whole system. Teresi even refused to allow the candidate to take the stand and speak. Teresi dismissed the case!

Only weeks afterward did it come to light that Teresi had his own baggage; had the NYS Unified Court System assigned the case to another, fairer, judge with no record of abuse, one who would have maintained control in the courtroom, one who would have made Luckacovic and Ross answer truthfully, the result would likely have been different. Instead, Teresi created a situation where Luckacovic and Ross could lie through their teeth and get away with it. It’s hopeless to attempt to get chronic liars to tell the truth, even when under oath. Sound familiar?

So, does the justice system sound familiar, too? It should, because the same bunch of yahoos are still running things and the same conspiracies are being hatched, and the same retaliation and intimidation is being launched against people with the common good at heart. Sound familiar?

The Backstabbing Game

So, there you have it, dear readers: The scary clowns have found each other and the old saying proves true again: “Birds of a feather flock together.” But there’s another saying: “There’s no honor among thieves.” And that also proved true in the case of Ross and LuckacovicRoss, even while they were collaborating and conspiring with Luckacovic against the Town of New Baltimore, badmouthed Luckacovic calling him a “loose canon,” among other things, and stating to the very candidate they were later to libel and slander that the candidate’s manners were better than Luckcovic’s. Describing herself, Ross writes in an e-mail that she has a pattern of tearing apart anyone who doesn’t see things her way.  Talk about psychos! All of this in black and white in e-mails! Joan Ross has a reputation for e-mail campaigns.

Hubby Robert “Robby” Ross even gets charged by the state police with aggravated harassment when he uses his jeep as a weapon and attempts to run down the candidate. Nice bunch, huh? Remember a while back when the cement plant was being lambasted for emissions?  Well, Robert “Robby” Ross has had neurological problems long before he came to New Baltimore, but just to show you how psycho these activists are, they took advantage of the press Lafarge was getting and they actually blamed Ross’ twitch on the Lafarge emissions! Incredible! Ross is over 70 year old and at the time less than 10 years resident in New Baltimore! If their lunatic claims were true everyone in Ravena and Coeymans should have been dead years ago and their kids walking around with three eyes and gills! It’s in black and white, and you can read about it on one of the Smalbany Times Useless blogs (read Ross’ TU blog comments at  Heavy Metals),in one of the Ross’ famous misinformation comments to the TU!

The Ross-Luckacovic Speciality
Now the Deluca Speciality

The tactics are remarkably similar between the Deluca method and the Ross-Luckacovic method of corrupting an otherwise harmonious community:

  • They do their mischief and dirty work concealed behind the scenes, making it appear they are squeaky clean (sounds like the way the ruling families of RCS work, doesn’t it?);
  • They don’t tend to come out into the open on the blogs and social media; they prefer to lurk or take their pokes anonymously or under fake names, or  as Internet trolls;
  • They work on the emotions and fire them up; they make sure that their audience is literally flooded with emotion so that their intellects are shut down;
  • The get some stupids in the community to do the dirty work and then, when they’re done using them, dump them (Is that what happened to Josephine O’Connor and Joe Tracey?)
  • They find a starving journalist on the Times Useless and feed him or her with factoids and rumor so that he or she can fill the  tabloid press with gossip and scandal (exactly what is happening with Daylin Roman);
  • They get someone to start a social media site where you can have their lackey’s with fake names comment with scripted lies (the Times Useless blogs);
  • They show up at all the public meetings only to be visible, saying all the right things  the audience wants to hear, they make accusations, demand impossible action, sound like they want the best for the community (Oh, God! This is really getting scary…is Deluca really Luckacovic or Ross dressed up to look like a Deluca?);
  • They scandalize, discredit, try to disgrace, humiliate, try to destroy anyone who might stand in their way or who might be capable of moving the public away from their self-serving interests (that’s actually happening in the RCS community as we write);
  • They want to win at all costs! If the truth is uncomfortable for them, then they lie, lie, lie–or get someone to lie for them.

Heard enough? Convinced yet? Send John Luckacovic and “Dirty-Hands” Jerry packing! It’s an aliance born in hell, raised on self-interest, corruption, lies, deception, and smoke screens. Send the scary clowns back to the satanic circus freak show where they belong. 

Our advice to Dirty-Hands Jerry: We know the types you’re attracted to but really, for your own good and the good of the community, stay clear of your new friends. Take the advice of the reader and stay out of the limelight but stay out of the Twilight Zone, too. The characters you allegedly are courting are really bad news and are no friends of RCS.

Information Update as of July 16, 2012: According to our information, Jerry DeLuca, Ravena, New York was added to a local social media site by Cathy DeLuca about 2 months ago. John Luckacovic Director at 2Luck Concepts was added by Jerry DeLuca about 3 weeks ago to the same social media site. Since that social media site’s focus is on RCS gradutes and John Luckacovic graduated from Croton-Harmon High School, Croton-on-Hudson, NY (Class of 1967), and allegedly attended  Buffalo State College, Class of 1971 for theatre , art and design, he doesn’t appear to have any connection with RCS. Moreover John Luckacovic and his parner Eleanor Oldham give their addresses as 510 West 123rd Street, #67, New York, NY 10027 (New York County) and John Luckacovic, Box 473, 70 Reardon York, Canaan, NY 12029 (Columbia County). Accordingly, the RCS connection is very, very vague.

As for the other information provided in this article, the sources are court documents, depositions, newspaper articles, and actual e-mails. The statements and information are all verified.

The Community Is Now On Alert.

Don’t Put Up With It!

Send that Dunce Dirty-Hands Jerry Back to School!

The Price of Listening to Dirty-Hands Jerry and Bottle-Gal Cathy!
The Price of Reading the Times Union or the News Herald!

It’s Really A Shame That The Good Residents of the RCS Central School District Have to Be Exposed to Dirty-Hands Jerry Deluca’s and Bottle-Gal Cathy Long Deluca’s Abuse of the Privileges Associated with Freedom Of Speech!

They Just Dress Up the Old Lies In Different Outfits!

Freedom of Speech Does Not Mean You Can Say Anything, True or False, Or Pervert the Information or Misinform the Public, Something the Delucas and their Dwindling Gang of Coeymanazis Don’t Seem To Get. You Just Can’t Waddle Up to the Speakers Podium and Talk Any Trash You Like! You Have To Be Responsible, Deluca! You Have to be Responsible For the Trash You Talk, Jerry!

Is That You, Jerry?

I made my point in Part I: of this series that Jerry “Dirty-Hands” Deluca doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he attempts to interpret the law when reading Article 18 of the New York State General Municipal Law. “Dirty-Hands” Deluca has no background in law or apparently law enforcement but he seems to be claiming to be an expert in both, while being competent in neither. Or does your Plattsburg political science degree include a free coupon for a Harvard, Yale, or even Albany Law School degree, Jerry? Didn’t really think so.

Congratulations Jerry!
Master Baiter of Misinformation (M.B.M.)
Class of 2012

But old “Dirty-Hands” Deluca and his partner in dereliction Old “Bottle-Butt” Deluca are up to their old tricks again, trying to paint the world black so that they can appear white. They’ll never accept what they really are–neither will we. It’s too scary!

So, for our 34,000+ dear and loyal readers, and the Coeymanazi lurkers–we know you’re there–here are a couple of definitions that may help to understand what we’re talking about here:

Dirty-Hands” is our phrase for the legal doctrine of unclean hands, which means that in order to be taken seriously, anyone pointing the finger at another person and making accusations must him/herself be innocent of any wrongdoing. Well, we know that’s not true in the Delucas’ case.

Conflict of interest,” is where a person uses his or her public position or office to benefit or profit personally; it’s misusing your official position for personal gain. Again, this may also apply to the Delucas and their minions.

Contract” is an agreement with specific terms between two or more persons or entities in which there is a promise to do something in return for a valuable benefit known as consideration. The law of contracts is at the heart of most business dealings. The existence of a contract requires finding the following factual elements:

  1. an offer
  2. an acceptance of that offer which results in a meeting of the minds
  3. a promise to do something
  4. compensation or payment in some form)
  5. a time or event when the agreed service must be provided (an agreement to meet commitments)
  6. terms and conditions for meeting the commitments, including fulfilling promises
  7. providing the service or meeting the commitments.

A lawsuit a common term for a legal action by one person or entity against another person or entity, to be decided in a court of law, sometimes just called a “suit.” The legal claims within a lawsuit are called “causes of action.” To exist, a  lawsuit does not involve a meeting of the minds or any of the essential ingredients for a contract; a lawsuit is not a contract!

Notice is also critical when suing a state or local government. Many states and municipalities have “notice of claim” provisions in their statutes and ordinances that state that, before a lawsuit is started, a notice of claim must be filed within a reasonable time, usually three to six months after the injury occurs. The notice must contain the date of injury, how it occurred, and other facts that establish that the prospective plaintiff has a viable Cause of Action against the government. A “notice of claim” is not a lawsuit nor is it a contract.

So, for Dirty-Hands Deluca and Bottle-Butt to say that filing a notice of claim is a conflict of interest because it is a contract is completely off-base! Deluca simply doesn’t know what he’s talking about (like that’s something new?).

In addition, because Deluca doesn’t understand what he’s reading from his script, he’s trying to make people believe something that is false: that is, he’s trying to make you believe what the Coeymans Police Department and the Coeymanazis believe: that seeking the protection of the law to be compensated for a wrong or for an injury is a conflict of interest if you are a public official (or anyone else, for that matter)!

Deluca and the Coeymanazis are Burning it Again!

The United States Constitution guarantees equal protection under the law; it does not say that you lose that protection if you’re a public official. (But that never mattered to the Coeymans Police or to the Coeymanazis!)  In fact, many states and municipalities have made provisions for defending public officials if they are sued, whether they are right or wrong!
What Deluca is trying to make people believe is that a notice of claim or a lawsuit is a conflict of interest. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Old Dirty-Hands Jerry is trying to misinform the public so that–he and the Coeymanazis hope–members of the board of education will be forced to resign and that will leave him and the Coeymanazis in full control. (I suppose if you can’t get re-elected Jerry and Cathy, the best next thing is to steal the power. Right?) But consider these examples, and think about them…

  • An off-duty  fireman is entering a school building and a piece of concrete falls and injures him; she sues the town to compensate him for his injury and losses.
  • A voter and member of the town council is walking into the polling place to vote, he trips on a damaged piece of sidewalk and breaks his hip; he sues the municipality for the injury and liability associated with the lack of maintenance of the sidewalk.
  • A teacher’s daughter is bullied in school and suffers physical injury as well as psychological trauma due to the lack of supervision at the school; the teacher sues the school administration.
  • A doctor is entering the emergency room and slips on a wet floor, breaking his arm; he sues the hospital.
  • A person serving on a public committee is falsely accused of misconduct by another member and is arrested; his reputation is damaged and his chances of re-election are put into jeopardy. The committeeman takes legal action against the person making the false accusation and defamation.

Do you honestly feel that any of these people have to resign from their positions in order to get justice for the loss, damage, injury they suffered? Or in each of the examples, what if it wasn’t the fireman, the teacher,  member of the town council, the doctor but their spouse or their child who is suing? Does that mean that the parent or the spouse has to resign his or her position? Of course not! There’s no conflict of interest at all.

In fact, that would be depriving the individuals of their constitutional rights! But we are not saying that the person suing should have the power or authority to decide for him or herself how much money should be awarded for the injury. That’s silly! The court will decide that or a jury will determine the award. The point is: someone was hurt or suffered losses because the other party was negligent or criminal. That means that for justice to be done, the injured party must be compensated. Do you disagree?

Now, put yourself in the positions in the example. What do you think would be fair and just?

We’re not talking about what the Biscones, the Brunos, and a couple of other RCS ruling tribes (the P…o, and A…o tribes), the Delucas, and the rest of the Coeymans gang do, like: My son has a construction company and he’ll do the job (…and I’ll get a cut). Or, the town attorney will take your case and for $50,000 make your felony disappear and you get to do public service for 80 hours. Or, my daughter works for your real estate company so I’ll let you sell the town property and she can get the commission. And this real-life RCS  list goes on. I think you understand what the point is. And you’ll see the conflict of interest we’re talking about.

The way things work is that if someone or a group injures you or causes you losses, you have every right to go after them. As a parent you must defend your children and if they are hurt by the negligence of others, you have every right to be made whole again. And it shouldn’t mean that the community loses a dedicated and valuable person in the process.

Guess who?

And it doesn’t mean that good people have to suffer because the evil ones have the podium and their three minutes to spread lies! A law suit against the municipality. Note: A person in litigation against a municipality over a contract claim is not thereby disqualified from running for elected office. (see N.Y. Op. (Inf.) Atty. Gen. 1975 -272) so why would a sitting public official be prohibited by the law or any mishapen attempt by Coeymanazis to invoke some obscure  local ethics code, apparently written by ignoramuses? An important elment in the consideration of “conflict of interest” is the question of control over the so-called contract. We must ask whether the public official has “control” over the contract contract…?

That you, Cathy?

In other words, does the public official have the power or duty to negotiate, prepare, authorize or approve the contract or authorize or approve payment under the contract, or to audit bills or claims under the contract, or appoint an officer or employee who has any of the powers or duties set forth above (see Gen. Mun. Law. §801)? Clearly the answer to this question when speaking of a member of the board of education, even if Dirty-Hands Jerry and his FaceBook addict Bottle-Gal Cathy Deluca knew what they were talking about when referring to a “contract.” If what Dirty-Hands Jerry and Bottle-Gal Cathy were true, it would be saying is that no teacher or spouse of a teacher sitting on the board of education could vote on anything, especially approval of a budget, from which they would derive benefit directly or through a spouse or a child!

So here are some examples of conflict of interest to make this clearer:

  • An attorney who is town or village attorney should not represent an applicant before the local zoning department;
  • The chair of the planning board who is employed by a real estate company should not participate in the consideration of a subdivision application made by that real estate company;
  • A town planning board member who is also a geologist in the private sector may not be compensated or enter into an agreement to be compensated for soil borings on a project before the planning board.

In each of these instances, there might be the appearance that the public official might be using his position for personal gain or benefit. The simple solution is to remove one’s self from the situation, to recuse one’s self from the process, and avoid the appearance of influencing the outcome. It does not mean that you have to resign! Nor does it mean that you have to make all sorts of disclosures! This safeguarding  process also involves the administration and the other board members policing their own; in other words, if the administration or the other board members feel that one of their own is potentially exposed to a conflict of interest allegation, it is their responsibility to alert their colleague to the fact and to request that s/he not participate in the deliberations or decision in the matter. Simple, right?

What the toilet-stall genius Dirty-Hands Jerry doesn’t seem to get is that the law is referring to a business arrangement that is made by an agreement, oral or written, called a contract, and concerns compensation or payment for services rendered, and comprising the elements I listed above.

What’s Up, Jerry?

Business law 101, Dirty-Hands, stick to your own conflicts of interest (Deluca Public Affairs, Department of Environmental Conservation, ARANY, Main Street Small Business Coalition, Coeymans Police Department, the New York State Assembly, and that’s just for starters, if and only if Dirty-Hands is not lying on his published résumé) and stick to your intimidation and retaliation agendas; you’re much better at them than real law. Dorkus maximus!

(Hey! Jerry. What’s with the neurotic cud-chewing? You getting nervous or something? You were driving some people nuts with that obscene nervous cud- or gum- chewing at the meeting!)

Now, dear 34,000+ visitors, if you’re really interested in the inbreeding and conflicts of interest old Dirty-Hands Jerry knows best about, we suggest you have a look at the operations of the Village of Ravena, all departments, the Town of Coeymans, all departments but especially the Coeymans Police Department, the RCS central school district and its school staff (instructional and non-instructional) and there you’ll find plenty to squeal about! Talk about incest and inbreeding! And when you’re done there, follow the turd tracks to the Albany County Sheriff’s department, the Albany Police Department, and the Albany County District Attorney’s office. Have fun!

Boycott the Times Union (a.k.a. Times Useless)

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog NOW!

Of Penises and Post-Its
OR
How Long is the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk Community, or Any Community With Any Self-Respect, Going to Put Up with the Turdy Times Union (a.k.a. Times Useless) and Its Pulp-Fiction Journalists?

Scott Waldman & Dayelin Roman
Times Union Turd Journalists

The Only Use the Times Useless and it’s Turdy Journalists Have for Ravena, Coeymans, or Selkirk Is to Dig Up Some Sleeze or Smear, Or Create One to Sell Their Rag! People! Wake Up! The Times Union and Its Turd Journalists Show Up In This Community Only To Make Asses of It and Its Residents! All The Times Useless Prints About Us is NEGATIVE! Or Weeks Old! They’re too stupid to do any real investigative journalism to cover the reall news! Or are they silent for other more sinister reasons?

Scott Waldman and Dayelin Roman or any of the other illiterates they send out know nothing about the community, nothing about its history, nothing about its people and saunter in whenever they need someone or something to smear or slime, do their damage and run back to their pig pens. They smeared some local person or event, they sold their rag, they collect their 30 pieces of silver. That’s American journalism? Well, it is in the Albany and Capital District region. If they’re such hot shot journalists what the hell are they doing of all places at the Times Union, in Albany, and stuck with covering not news but what they fondly refer to as the “hill towns“…I guess that makes us all the hill people, then. Sounds like a title for a cheap horror flick. Don’t know if I can deal with that label! Can you? How about Pursuit of the Post-It People or Penal Penalty of the Penis Painter? Nah! Don’t do much for me either. Let’s get back to the real business before it gets really silly.

Beat it! Times Union! (Waldman’s probably beating it as we write!)

In better days when people like that showed up in our towns they’d be sent packing…or our local constable would make their lives uncomfortable. As it is, locals welcome them and their smear as if they were covering the prom queen’s first dance with her prince. No! Too positive. Are you people nutz? Do you like being made asses of? Do you hate yourselves that much? And our local protectors, our Coeymans Police are too busy harassing and intimidating local residents to give a whit about the carpetbaggers as they roll in. Maggots!

The report on the senior’s prank distracted me from Part II of the Geneology of Corruption, Residents Complain. But when I read the benign events at the high school when compared to some of the other high schools, I breathed a sigh of relief until…

I read RCS Superintendant of schools remark (as quoted by the Times Useless’ Scott Waldman, who we all know has a little trouble with facts, truth, and correct quotes):

“In an email, Superintendent Elisabeth Smith referred to the Post-It note prank as vandalism. She said the spray-painting was “most likely” a separate incident than what happened inside the school and student access to the building being investigated. She said police are looking into the spray-paint vandalism.

“As adults in this learning community, we are not willing to sacrifice the health and safety of ourselves or our students, we are not willing to sacrifice the integrity of our school building, and we will not tolerate the loss of valuable planning or instructional time,” she wrote. “These acts and any similar acts will be dealt with in accordance with our disciplinary code of conduct, and with the assistance of local law enforcement.” (“RCS seniors suspended over Post-It prank. School administrators identify 29 students by watching YouTube video,”  Times Union by Scott Waldman, Friday, June 8, 2012.)

Vandalism?” Any other place would call it art! Where are you MOMA?

Get a grip, Ms Smith! Senior pranking as benign as this should suffice with a simple single-day suspension and the commitment of the seniors to remove the penis paint! Law enforcement!?! Are you totally nutz? Who? The Coeymans Police. Don’t make me pee myself laughing! Maybe the FBI or the State Police? Yeah! That’ll be a priority case for them. Right after they arrest the entire Coeymans Police department! My guess is that it probably was a Coeymans cop, or one of your perv teachers or coaches that did the porno artwork!

I don’t doubt for a minute that you need law enforcement to control your rabid teachers and coaches, and your bullying problem, Ms Smith, or to control the lunatics on the RCS board of education in their backstabbing and conspiracy operations, but against the seniors for a prank? You really need to get some rest and reassess your policies!

If you feel like getting heavy-handed with your disciplinary and code of conduct policies, and involving law enforcement, try doing so in handling the budget vote irregularities and fraud, your looney-toon teachers and your bullies, getting the Coeymanazis off the PTO and off the board of education*! Try those for starters and application of code of conduct policies.

*There’s little hope of enforcing policies against teachers or teachers on the BoE because the Superintendant is a former teacher and principal at the elementary school; she’s in the thick of the cliques! But give her a chance and some time. Let her prove us wrong.

Goes to the Times Union

And is Shared by Collaborators
Turd Reporters Scott Waldman, Dayelin Roman, and
Superintendant of Schools Elizabeth Smith!

And let them attend their senior picnic! That’s an event that marks an important transition for them. No one has a right to deprive them of their moments…they’re entering a horrible world and need some fond memories to look back on. It ain’t been no picnic growing up in this community!

Boycott the Times Union, Cancel Your Subscription, Tell the Times Union What You Think of Their Coverage and Performance in a Letter or E-mail! Tell Superintendant Smith what you think of her public condemnation of RCS seniors, and about her handling of the scandalous situations at the RCS high school!
