Gun at School & Budget Vote Irregularities…Did you see…

If You Think Election Fraud and Misconduct Are OUTRAGEOUS, Ask Superintendent Elizabeth Smith and Principal Brian Bailey About a Recent
Gun on School Grounds

and Why Established Security Procedures Were Not Followed!!!

Guns On School Property!!!
Get Answers…NOW!

An anonymous report and unconfirmed details indicate that there may have been an incident of a student bringing a firearm weapon on school grounds. Giving all benefit of doubt, we don’t know whether the alleged weapon was a toy or the real thing. We also don’t know whether it was a simple mistake or if there was something more to the incident. What we DO  know is that the informant, a parent, was VERY outraged that the established emergency security procedures were not immediately implemented for the safety of the children and the personnel. We urge you to contact the Superintendent for details, if available. Contact information is at the end of this article.

Now Back to Election Fraud, Misconduct, Abuse and Bullying of Students at RCS.
Ain’t Yer $$$$ Doin’ Great Work???

 FLASH Update:  May 16, 8 p.m.  We are receiving new information from residents who have stepped up! It appears there are some serious irregularities in the administration of the voting on May 15th. Stay tuned!

  • A resident reports having returned to the voting location and was asked by one poll attendant, “Do you want to vote again?” The resident laughed and respondeld, “Sure!” The attendant replied, “Well, people are doing it.”  WHERE WAS THE ELECTION INSPECTOR, THE POLL CLERKS?!?
  • There are numerous reports that proof of residency was not asked for or presented by attendants.  IRREGULARITY!
  • There are several reports of students wearing vote YES! t-shirts in the immediate arey of the voting, and in the halls leading to voting. ABUSE!
  • There are several reports of vote YES! posters/signs in the immediate area of voting and in the halls leading to voting. VIOLATION!
  • The “receipt” chips handed out apparently to show that the voter had reported in and signed in, were no longer handed out after 6 p.m. No control or monitoring of voting, voters, or procedures. ELECTION IRREGULARITY!
  • A senior election “supervisor” William Schwartz (a retired RCS school superintendant!) left the polling area for an extended period of time, during which the voting was not supervised.
  • There are reports that there is a discrepancy between the sign-in books and the number of votes! CONSPIRACY? FRAUD?
  • And what were all the police doing there? Uniformed, unmarked cars, plain clothes, especially our Main Man, the Intimidator-in-Chief, so-called police investigator Gerald “Jerry” Deluca (see our exposé ( Click Can You Explain This, Jerry? on this former RCS CSD BoE president…his legacy was that money pit pool! Why was he parading around if  not to make a statement in support of his Yes! campaign efforts? That was WRONG, WRONG, WRONG! INTIMIDATION!
  • Did anyone see that idiot J. O’Connor’s clown act? “He Called Me Fat?” (the same Josephine O’Conner, “mostly-absent, always-late,” got my-husband-tenure-bye O’Connor; see our article, Josephine O’Connor: A Role Model of Maturity and Mental Stability…NOT!)? ENTERTAINMENT!

This is OUTRAGEOUS! Misusing middle schoolers and highschoolers is ABUSE and BULLYING by teachers or students! This is also a case of election fraud and misconduct! Report it! Demand Action! Contact those in charge of the district:

Ms Elisabeth R. Smith, Superintendent
RCS CSD District Office
15 Mountain Rd.
Ravena, NY 12143
Phone: 518.756.5200
e-mail: ersmith@rcscsd.org

And the entire RCS CSD Board of Education at e-mail: BoardMembers@rcscsd.org

and demand an investigation and a public report by the Board of Education and the Superintendant.

Very Important: We and the New York State Education Department want to now and others want to clarify whether these irregularities need to be investigated by the authorities, and whether prosecution and discipline is required. Obviously, the answer to that question is a Yes! 

DEMAND AN INVESTIGATION!

Please continue to let us know if at any time during the voting on May 15, 2012, at the RCS High School you saw any of the above irregularities occurring!

You can let us know by confidential comment or by e-mail to CONFIDENTIAL. Please be sure to include the word “Confidential” in the subject line of your e-mail or comment. That will ensure that it is not published and your personal information will be kept secret. All confidential communications are destroyed after review; communications are published at the Editor’s discretion.

Thank you!

Know What It Feels Like to Be BLED to DEATH?

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

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

The Teachers Will Suck You Dry

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

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

You’ll Know Why When You Read This!

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

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

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

    What You’ll Be Screaming If the School Budget Passes

But the Teacher is Your Friend!

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

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

Loaded Dice:
Teachers Win=You Lose

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

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

VOTE NO!
On May 15th

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

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!
 

Readers Corner: A Readers’ Contribution…

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

A Reader Writes…

Mr Laszlo Polyak of Ravena submitted this article:

I guess I will be the advocate for the children, and RCS  High School seniors, who have commented on this blog and try to present it in a  way that both sides can understand.  First off, I have a business teaching degree so I have my bias too.  Second, there are good teachers all around not just greedy ones. [Editor’s Note: While I am still adamant that the seniors who commented in the way they commented were uncivil and inappropriate, I would be the last to overgeneralize and condemn an entire group, teachers or students.]

Let’s start from some carved in stone facts that are beyond the control of this community.  Two million people have moved out of NY in the last 10 years.  Locally this means there are 2,000 fewer people in our school district.  Fewer students means fewer teachers needed.  Example – sixty kids in third grade in any district. – six third- grade teachers.  Obviously at least of 3 teachers have to go.  That is beyond our control. There’s also the loss of two million dollars so there is even less money to support the situation. Less money from government sources (state and federal). Thank you! Governor Cuomo! The state legislators and the governor of the Empire State don’t seem to give a damn whether your schools sink or float! They just push it on to local governments and pass the ole buck! [Editor’s Note: Mr Polyak makes some good points here.]

The recent concert at the high school the principal said it best — everyone will be receiving some information and facts at home.  I really urge you all to read it carefully.  Do your homework and make a reasonable, informed decision when you vote.

If you want one fine example of a truly great teacher, you have Mr Wamsley.  As a music teacher he has done an excellent job with the kids in band and drama.  He entertains us with high school plays that are Broadway  quality.   He has been here only a few years.  There was talk when budget cuts were needed to let him go. The public stood up and backed him. [Editor’s Note: Music and language/literature are foundations of our culture. I would agree with Mr Polyak that a gifted teacher in the humanities is a must in any school.]

Perhaps I can explain some of the issues this way.  There are residents on fixed incomes  such as social security and retirement pensions.  Perhaps your grandma or grandpa.  They have not received an increase in their check for two years straight.  And yet their taxes have gone up and up and up.  Of course, they want the best education for their grandchildren, great grandchildren and children [But do they have to forego medicine or nutritious food to make that possible? There’s a moral dilemma here. The ed.].  But they are down to eating cat food.  How do you expect them to afford a 6.8% increase? Some of them, simply frustrated, are a portion of the two million who have left New York state. 

Take a walk down Main Street.  Again you’ll see fewer people there, fewer businesses than you did last year: this means less of a tax base and more of a burden on those still here.  Then we have three big industries.  plastics, railroad and the cement company.  The reason why we have this short fall is because they went to court and got their property values dropped 10 yrs ago and will do it again. [Editor’s Note: Excellent point! They’re paying almost no tax and yet you jump up and down with glee when they make a pitiable gift or donation! See thru the smokescreen!]  And they can afford to go to court.  Or just close their doors and move out.

Have you forgotten that we are in a depression, and I will call it that. We are in a depression its over the place.  I wrote a letter to the blogger questioning their motives about the kids blogs. I told the blogger that these are children/young adults. And they are trying to express their opinions.  In a week some people will go and vote Yes! and some will vote No!  And we will cross that bridge when we get there.  But we need to remind ourselves that it is OK to be conservative, it is OK to be liberal.  And we need to express ourselves without bitterness, frustration and hatred. The young people tried but sadly, their teachers were laughing and not explain to them the truth  The kids don’t lose  we do!  [Editor’s Note: I disagree. The young people were cheated of a very valuable lesson and experience; the teachers lost nothing. The community lost something, too!]  Are we name calling just because we have different viewpoints? Are we the children or the adults, the educators?  Every community has at least two viewpoints, and they can co-exist in harmony.  A healthy community might have hundreds of viewpoints and solutions, too, but can pull it all together and get the job done .

Perhaps when you write to the blogger, you should show some examples of solutions for the current situations and problems that we face. [Editor’s Note: Great advice, Mr Polyak!]  As I showed my leg brace for my cerebral palsy at the RCS board of Ed meeting, I did not bother to show my ID showing that I was a walker or I had to walk over a mile each way to my junior high and high schools.  I even attempted to link and show different school districts for comparisons and email sites too. There were NYS dept of Ed individuals who were present and willing to assist us to find solutions.  Some of them even came down and sat in the audience and took notes but to their disappointment.  If they have to take control it wont be the kids who will be hurt; it will be half the teachers and the Administrator. They noted that no one really placed the kids first.  And some of those followers of the blog are the Dept of Ed officials, as it is part of their job to monitor the situation.

I also set out examples of the YMCA taking over the pool.  It doesn’t matter whether the teacher’s contracts were handed in weeks before or 5 minutes before.  The teachers’ unions are not as powerful as you think they are, and they give nothing back. Some good teachers are struggling to make ends meet, too, and are not greedy at all!  They answer to a much more powerful organization, the NYSED who certify and license them; they can’t teach if their license is revoked. And NYSED answers to “us, the People”.  They are just sitting back, waiting to see what the district votes . You haven’t read about Rhode Island, where the state fired all their teachers.  And then a few months later all the teachers begged for their jobs back at 80% of what they had.

We are in depression; deal with it  people! Don’t believe me, please go on the internet and check.  There are people who have worked in the RCS school district for 10, 15, 20 years who are not teachers.  And they still make under $20,000 per year. [Editor’s Note: In the RCS central school district the teachers average out at about $63,000, up to over $70,000. You don’t want to know what Superintendant Elizabeth Smith is pulling out of the district!]  Some of them would have a better life living on welfare!

Again If anyone wants I will personally bring them to the Dept of Ed  personal so they can hear it straight from NYSED If its a No! votes them teachers and staff are gone and the kids still have sports and music. If it’s a Yes! vote the Dept of Ed  brings in its auditor line by line and the waste goes! This is what the Governor wants to see happen across the state because he does not want to see another 2 million residents leave the state!  The kids will not lose they will have music and sports at the bad or not so good teachers’expense! [Editor’s Note: Thank you! Mr Polyak! That’s a very important point you’ve just driven home. I hope the readers pick up on it. Teachers beware!]

On of the main  issues here is the inequity of employment.  Where and how we are going to fund programs.  And avoid another 2,000 people moving out of our community or a major company from shutting down or moving out.  So what is your solution?  I will always be out in the open. All are always welcome to knock on my door to discuss any issue and I will present them with the government records so they can draw their own conclusions.

Just stop dragging the kids in the middle they enough problems growing and finding their own identity; they don’t need to be made pawns in the battles waged by the adults!

Editor’s Comment: Thank you Mr Lazlo Polyak for a very reasonable and balanced article. We may not have agreed with everything you write but we do appreciate the time and effort you put into this. We are pleased to publish it with minor edits. Note: Mr Polyak is solely responsible for the content of his article; we have not checked the facts but are assured that Mr Polyak has done so.

Our position is and remains that the residents of the RCS Central School District should vote NO! on the budget and all other issues on the ballot on May 15, 2012.

Vote NO! on May 15th

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.

Topple the Teachers Tower on the Board of Education

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

The Teachers  and False Prophets Are Building A Fortress to Push For Their Special Interests on the Board of Education. We Have Some Suggestions On How to Topple the Teachers’ Tower!

Teachers Association Building a Tower of BS

Step 1:

Stop being afraid! Stop fearing your neighbors! Fight back, damn it! That’s exactly where the perps and the pervs want you: afraid and quiet. They’re bullies and as soon as you come out and defy them, watch the bastids run for their rat holes! 

You’re Being Bullied! Stop the Coeymanazis!

 Step 2:

Urge your fellow residents to Vote NO! on the entire ballot on May 15th. Discuss the vote everywhere you go. Print out pages of this blog or the Vote NO! flyer we provide at  Why You Should Vote NO!

Step 3:

Get the Vote NO! signs up and watch for sign vandalism. There have been a large number of reports of sign vandalism in the district. When the Vote NO! signs are being destroyed you can bet it’s not the residents who oppose the budget! What more needs to be said? If it’s kids, where are the parents? If it’s adults, well, that’s why we need to be getting the cops involved…but then with people like Deluca, Darlington, and the perps in uniform on the Coeymans Gestapo force…Nah! Small chance. The best bet is to call Agent Holly at the Albany FBI (Telephone No. Phone: (518) 465-7551).

Confidential = Secret!

A reader is asking for help in getting text and graphics for Vote NO! signs; you need to get together to create the signs, to form groups to put them up, to form groups to distribute flyers. Let us know in a CONFIDENTIAL comment if you’ll be willing to host a sign-party, be an organizer, join a Vote NO! group. Send us the CONFIDENTIAL comment and we’ll make sure it get into the right Vote NO! captain’s hands (CONFIDENTIAL comments are secret!). You need to act NOW! Time is running out!

Step 4:

Start drafting write-in candidates. Find people who are not teachers or married to teachers, good role models, no criminal or anti-social skeletons in the closet, intelligent (intelligent doesn’t mean having an MA!), and truly interested in the community. Spread their names around as write-ins. Spend $10 to have some flyers printed and distribute them. Write yourself in, if necessary, to prevent the Teachers’ Choices from getting the numbers!

Step 5:

Put a Vote NO! sign on your lawn or in your window! Let everyone know your position on this issue of uncontrolled spending and giveaways.

Step 6:

Be unafraid! Be a role model for your neighbors! Stand alongside victims of intimidation! Be a fighter, damn it! Be the anti-bullying champion in your community! 

Topple the Tower!

What Your Kids Were Doing in School at RCS Today…

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

If You Are Wondering What Your Kids Are Doing When They’re At School–And You Really Should Wonder–, Here are some Examples.

Misfits Just Don’t Fit Neatly Anywhere.

 After Reading This You May Want to Think Again Why RCS is A Failing School and Whether Your Teachers and Their Supervisors Are Worth the Money!

You may also want to question whether your kids are  using those electronic gadgets you provide them with to best use, and whether your paying for telecommunications and computers so that they can write stuff like this:

This young man, whose real name is Timothy, started off with a pseudonym, “jack’s inflamed sense of rejection” and you might know him just by that assumed name if he’s your kid. “Jack-O” writes from e-mail kph@nycap.rr.com at 9:43 a.m.:

This is a vapid, short sighted, deceitful and overwhelmingly ignorant blog. Instead of real facts it is filled with morons who are appparently as anti-progress as they are anti-intelectual. I feel like the short sighted coward who runs this blog lacks any courage to present his “arguments” (I say this loosely because very little of what is posted here has enough truth behind it to even constitute as a real argument) in public to those he has singled out for dissent. Do the “smalbany” community and leave it. Remember that passing a 0% budget, rather than the well thought out 6.8%, would not only severely damage the school and town’s infrastructure but it will damage the lives of the children who attend it. Please keep this in mind next time you post you disgusting pedo-sadist.
“Sincerely, The Concerned Students Of RCS High School.”

Jack-O’s thought processing is a bit strange as is his language, but that’s what your paying for…this guy’s allegedly an RCS senior ready for the world!

Jack-O writes again from kph@nycap.rr.com at 11:10 a.m:

“Well seeing as you responded to not a single issue that I have placed before you and rather dodged the topic I see fit to dodge yours. You call me immature yet you reference my perceived ignorance with sphincter anatomy, how laughably asinine and poorly thought out. Now I know that on top of a blinding sense of self superiority you are also a childish megalomaniac who seems to succeed only in dodging real challenges when placed before you. Now to adress our anonyminity; and your own seeing as you are equally hyopcritical and cowardly. We are a group of students, mostly highschool seniors (amazing how someone pressumably half your age seems to work with twice the level of intelligence and decorum?) If you wish for names we are more than willing to oblige, knowing that you will remain hidden while shackled by your fear. As students and educated citizens (quite unlike yourself) we see it only fit that you either write a “fair, truthful and complete” blog as stated above, or remove your ill-conceived filth that you parade as “fact” from the internet. In the mean time please resume with your unbacked lunacy and borderline slander of otherwise upstanding rcs faculty.
Sincerely, Timothy, Cassie, Karin, Tyler, Sierra, Brandon and numerous other students”
“PS: I’m hoping your next argument might actually provide. Debatable counter points rather than the shallow and quite lack luster presentation you provided us in your previous attempt at a rebutal”

Well, our little backwoods Conan the Barbarian certainly can get riled, can’t he? Wonder how much class time he’s getting in today?

“Jack-O” the inflamed and rejected one writes AGAIN from kph@nycap.rr.com  at  11:50 a.m. (busy little beaver tail isn’t he?):

“Well after some recent enlightenment and research it is now apparent who we are truly dealing with. Failed justice and confirmed fraud [Redacted. The puerile little clown thinks he knows whom he’s addressing.]. Dishonored by the military and rejected in many aspects of life, it seems one might grow bitter over time. Lying about educational qualifications when applying for an appointed position seems about as intelligent as any argument you’ve presented today. At first there was anger at your short sighted attacks, now I find only pity for you. I wish you well in your future endeavors because good fotune is something you’re clearly lacking, [redacted].
“PS: commenting on grammar and spelling is usually the first sign of someone losing an argument, please keep this in mind when trying to construct arugments in the future. For someone who claimed to have such solid educational credentials you seem to be lacking in the most basic, maybe lying about your degrees wasn’t the smartest road you could’ve taken in life.
With pity, RCS High School”

After a diatribe like that you really have to wonder what his application essays look like…failing schools and substandard teachers…”rejected and inflamed” kids lashing out. Yup! Yer paying for the whole Magilla mom and dad. Ain’t you proud?

And again “inflamed and rejected” Tim a.k.a. Jack-O writes from his kph@nycap.rr.com at 11:52 a.m.:

“” Also guessing you missed the Fight Club reference. Maybe you and your adopted brother can rent it this weekend”

And again, our little inflamed reject Tim writes from kph@nycap.rr.com  at 3:08 p.m.:

“You refuse to publish anything I might post, [redacted]. How does it feel to be confronted with your lifes failures, turn blindly away and then miscontrude what you heard only to fit your ill percieved goals? A complete failure as a linguist, stripped of military awards and rejected as an appointed official due to aggregious fraud, this is what highlights your life. You hold a very self righteous demeanor (fitting for such a pompous theologian as yourself) but it all crumbles when somebody finds who you truly are, or worse; when someone begins to beat you. Also, I wish that you refrain from presenting me and my classmates as adults under our pseudonyms. Is the thought of losing intellectually to a high school senior too much for your poor battered ego to take? I’d like to think so. Expect more in the future, [redacted].

Our little “inflamed” and “rejected” Jack-O is a real candidate for counseling. There’s a lot of anger and frustration there. What happened to your little boy? Too much exposure to RCS high school environments. Is this person really going to be turned loose on the real world in June?

Then, for a little change, karin.rachael@yahoo.com chimes in at 12:28:

As I am reading the argument in the previous comment, I’m wondering why tearing down an innocent high school senior is “proving your point” at all. Yes, we are in high school and I will send you my transcript if you don’t believe me. You call him “incoherent” and “prepubescent” yet he is bringing up more of a valid argument than any other post on this page. His comment that started this mess had valid points as to the budget itself, our school, and truth backs every one of his arguments. Yet who ever is calling him out on his “anonymity” (which, ironically, we don’t know who that is yet) his/ her only point is to bash someone for pointing out the truth.
To put in my own two cents here, Why is this blog even up? I have seen nothing on here of truth until Tim [Aha! So Jack-O is actually Tim! thank you Karen Rachael!] started commenting, and everything else has been stretched out or straight up lies. For wanting to keep “an open forum for discussion” you don’t exactly want to hear the other side of the argument.
And yes, we are a product of our teachers, but the last thing I will do is take that as an insult. We have had a wonderful education which is proved by the high end vocabulary used that you so clearly need a dictionary for, seeing as you are misinterpreting EVERY word we say. [Well, isn’t this little minx feisty! “High-end vocabulary” without grammar…well, OK.]
“The reason our school district is turning to gumbo is because of ignorant websites like this one. You take the time and energy out of your day to post trash about whatever you can get your hands on, yet someone challenges you with the honest truth and the only thing you can do is insult them. How about we keep an open mind an actually read what he was saying in the first comment that you so rudely chose to ignore:
“Remember that passing a 0% budget, rather than the well thought out 6.8%, would not only severely damage the school and town’s infrastructure but it will damage the lives of the children who attend it.” Bringing up an honest, researched point is no excuse to insult someone.
“I am embarrassed to be living in this district after reading this and I hope some of what we are saying gets through to you. Just because we’re in high school doesn’t mean you can overlook us. We’re the future of this town. Thanks”

Well, young lady, it’s pretty hard to overlook you when you spend all day long bombarding us with comments using such “high end vocabulary”…and K. I believe high-end is hyphenated…but I’ll have to use a dictionary to be sure; you do the same, why don’t you?

And now Seamooney987@gmail.com vents at 12:34 p.m. [We haven’t edited anything for grammar or structure]:

“You are a decietful person who is not with whatthe people want.you are going to be the dick who makes the rcs school an awful boring school for the next to come so, you can have just some extra cash in your pockets.well I hope you happy. Wait, I have an idea, grow a pair and vote yes for the younger generation s”

Now that was eloquent and a real example of what RCS is pumping out…

Seamooney987@gmail.com at 1:11 p.m.

“Now you just follow some guy behind a screen and do something good for the community. Why not fight for the rest of the kids in the RCS schools.thats what you should do not rejected the people fighting for the schooland its kids.so vote yes from the while rcs student body. Ps. This website is for the nonbeilevers!!!!”

karin.rachael@yahoo.com at 1;33 p.m.

“I’m going to respond as calmly as possible because frankly your ignorance is driving me insane. I am not a minor, I am an 18 year old senior at RCS high school, believe me or not. While I was typing this, I was lunch, where I’m allowed to use my cellphone, and the other students commenting were right there with me so, yes, I AM convinced that it is a “high school senior”, thank you. My teachers were there as well, laughing at your idiocy.
“And who is the “WE” when you write that we are “misrepresenting every work WE say?” That would be an interesting question to have answered” and you will have it answered! Tim, Cassie, Brandon, Sierra and I, as Tim mentioned in his other comment, you probably didnt even read.
But again, you are straying away from the points I made, just to insult me. Believe me, sir, we (the students of RCS, incase that is in question again) are the ones shuddering. Because people like you, ignorant and disrespectful, are the ones making the decisions for our school. I’d prefer it if the students voted, we have half a mind as to what goes on around us, unlike yourself. But don’t worry, we’re too “irresponsible and incompetent”
Have a great day.”

K. is apparently losing it, letting histrionics take control of her. So, her teachers were there with her “laughing” I really would like to know what else they were doing…the mind boggles, doesn’t it.

Finally, the editor Fides Qua Creditur replies to the “Concerned Students” at 1:39 p.m.:

“Any further communications from you or your mentors that are of similar tenor or content will be sent immediately to trash. You are some of the worst examples of bad-mannered, poorly tutored, disrespectful, children presuming to be adults that I have ever had the amusement to have encountered. You have made no points, no credible suggestions, and make the impression only that you are being goaded by some toad into writing these comments.
 “Again, please refrain from your puerile diatribes until such time that you can dispense with the ill-informed tabloidism and the infantile bleating; otherwise we shall have no other alternative than to trash your comments without further consideration.
“Thank you in advance for your understanding.”

Enough is enough already. These unsupervised children have spent an entire morning pumping out diatribes, being disrespectful, insulting and even admitting that their teachers were there with them allowing themselves to be amused by their little pets. Scandalous, indeed!

A 2:09 p.m. karin.rachael@yahoo.com checks in with yet another installment of drivel:

“Sir, that was my exact point right there. The fact that you wont even LISTEN to us, our side of the story, shows how single minded you are. [Editor’s Note: They never presented their “side of the story” in any of their comments. All they did was FLAME!] Throw this comment to trash, go ahead. Because I will make a print out, I know it was sent. [So big deal!] But I know that I’m not bad mannered or poorly tutored, and as for disrespectful, who is the man bashing a teenager, and who is the one making valid points? [What the devil is a teenager doing writing crap like you children have been writing?!? Who’s doing the bashing?] You should have to trash your own comments because I have never said one bad thing on this page, yet somehow saying “you seem to have your head stuck up beyond at least two anal sphincters” is alright to say here. Pathetic, thats what you are. I’m guessing you run this page as well. Nicely done, youre showing the entire community how vastly incoherent you are. Please, feel free to respond to this with more ignorant comments. I’m through here for the sole reason that I fear that your idiocy is contageous. Have a fantastic life.

And then our little furry friend, Tim, pipes in from kph@nycap.rr.com at 2:58 p.m.:

“Thank you for your well though out (sarcasm) and very truthful (extended sarcasm) post. It appears you didn’t answer my 3rd post due to the nature of it calling you out as a failure and fraud. I hope the FBI enjoys your raving lunacy and overwhelming incompetance as much as I and many fellow students do!

Why thank you very much for your acknowledgment, Timmy. Likewise, I’m sure. So that’s the sum total of your upbringing and education, is it?

But Tim is back again [!] from kph@nycap.rr.com at 3:08  [Did he get lonely?] this time with a new pseudonym, “[redacted] encompassing sense of failure” formerly “jack’s inflamed sense of rejection”at 3:24 p.m.:

“Oh and one last addendum: for one who does nothing but debase others over the internet, why must you be so sore when the same happens to you, [redacted]? Also, I look forward to whatever frivilous legal action you might seek to impose (knowing how well that went over with your neighbors I’d say it might not be the best course of action for you to take!)”

This kid’s a real loose cannon! He really gets off on himself, doesn’t he? He’s been at it most of the day!

Then Seamooney987@gmail.com takes his cue at 5:04 p.m.:

“Well you and your blog followers are some of the most one sided absent minded peopleI have herd.the school is one of the poorestscolds put there but with the budget voting yes we can pull through this.but with the rude inconsiderate people in this town.if you think that you are an assault that is responsible(which your not) then vote yes.don’t do it for your 14 followers but for the student body. Have the best days in your life.”

Poor seamooney’s RCS education is really showing in that message. If you are his parents, you really should get him some therapy. I’m really sorry but I couldn’t make out what he was trying to say. If you can, I’d be interested in knowing.

It got really worse when Tim (Remember “inflamed rejected” Tim?) sent a threat note at around 9:30 p.m. “Please keep this in mind as you continue posting, nice house by the way. Maybe I’ll stop in for a face to face conversation? (Shouldn’t be hard seeing as you spend the majority of your time there) I’d hope you’d be up for a little debate seeing as you’re so articulate when voicing opinions over the internet.”  Would it be reasonable to say that this kid has some major problems? The note was reported and copied to the school authorities and to law enforcement.

So there you have it. What your RCS seniors are doing all day long today while their teachers are with them “laughing” at the idiocy. Really makes you proud, doesn’t it.

It was at about midday that we decided to put op a notice to the effect that the blog is only for persons over 17 years of age. But even that didn’t help–not that these teenagers would respect the notice. They apparently have not received the education or the upbringing that includes respect.

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention one articulate and very impressive student comment–although it bore the signs of orchestration by others–that came from a writer identifying himself as “Kieth” and as an “18 year old individual with the legal rights and responsibilities that go with it.” His comment disagreed with our position but was civil and asked for more information. His comment was so impressive we responded privately and at length. Bravo, Kieth! (Now the poor kid will probably get death threats from students and teachers alike!)

Really, if you’re the parent of any of these kids, you ought to be ashamed and very, very concerned! And if you’re the parent of one of these kids, you’d better get your butt down to that school and find out who those teachers were, and why your [b]rats have so much time on their hands!

These incidents are so embarassing and criminal that we are not asking you to forward the link to friends, relatives, or elected officials. It’s dirty laundry that needs to be handled inhouse…and by law enforcement.

Parents: Do You Know Where Your Children Are?

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

Parents! When you put those kids of yours on a school bus and wave bye to them for the next 7-9 hours, do you expect that they might be under the supervision of responsible, competent adults? It’s a reasonable expectation, you’d think, wouldn’t you?

We Report Computer Crime.

While they’re at school, you’d think that someone, anyone would be aware of what they’re doing…that they’d be monitored and watched to ensure that they’re getting what you’re paying the teachers and the school district for: teaching, education.

Well, imagine our surprise when we received a large number of comments on this blog from an individual or individuals identifying him/herself /themselves as students at RCS highschool or highschool seniors and signing as the “Concerned Students of RCS High School.” Some of the comments are rather long and so vile and vitriolic that they  initially really raised some suspicion that it was not a student or a group of students writing the comments, but an adult masquerading as a “student.” Unfortunately, our suspicion proved false; the writers are, in fact, students at RCS highschool!

In one comment the author(s) actually sign off using the name s “Timothy, Cassie, Karin, Tyler, Sierra, Brandon and numerous other students ” Moreover, one of the writers, Karin Rachael, identifies her co-operators by name as Karin, Tim, Cassie, Brandon, Sierra.

What’s worse, sill is that in a comment, Karin Rachael actually emphasizes that their “teachers were there as well, laughing at your idiocy,” while  the students were writing their salacious nonsense.

The comments were sent from about 9 a.m. throughout the day until about 6 p.m., one or two coming in later at night. One commenter, Tim, even managed to pump out a threat note which we promptly sent to school authorities and law enforcement. (Click here to  read the comments). The comments were, as we’ve said, rather long, not very nice, and rambling, touching upon a number of issues that probably wouldn’t be high on a teenager’s list, unless coached by an adult. As mentioned above, teachers were involved.

 But the basic question is: What is a student, who is or should be at school, doing sending comments to a blog? Where are the teachers? Where is the supervision? The students could be enjoying pony-porn or sending bully messages to another student for all they know! An interesting scenario just after the question of bullying was raised at a Board of Education meeting and was answered by the Superintendent to the effect that things are under control in the RCS CSD! Baloney!

Well, we finally had enough and we sent an email to the e-mail address verified for the poster, and sent copies to schools superintendant E. Smith and to the entire Board of Education for investigation.

If that is the use to which the RCS students are putting taxpayer funded computer equipment it is a serious issue for reconsideration of how taxpayer money should be spent in future!

But what is especially worrying is what one commenter identifying herself as Karin.Rachael writes: “While I was typing this, I was at lunch, where I’m allowed to use my cellphone, and the other students commenting were right there with me…My teachers were there as well, laughing at your idiocy.” This is especially regrettable when one thinks that the students may be being goaded by teachers with a special vested interest in getting the impressionalble to do their dirty work for them. Imagine the scenario: you have your views at home and then you send your kids off to be indoctrinated by teachers who might be using them to promote the teacher’s interests, even over against those interests of the parents! Just who were those teachers standing over the students busilly pecking away at their cell phones sending their dictated messages? Can we have some teachers’ names, maybe? We guess now that at least one of our questions has been answered: The kids didn’t find the blog on their own; they had some help from their teachers!

What emerges most conspicuously from the comments made by the so-called high-school seniors is their immaturity, their infantile frustration, their anger, their confusion, and their mastery of disrespect and incoherent but spiteful language. Well done RCS CSD educators! You’ve coached them well to be an embarassment to us all! Another crop of misfits is released on the world! It’s scandalous!

We are also sending separate copies of the comments and the identifiers to the NYS Department of Education with our questions, and to the FBI field office in Albany, because we feel if it is students then the supervisors and teachers have to answer some questions; if it is an adult or adults, then we take it very seriously when adults pose as minors or misuse/abuse minors to achieve some perverse objective.  (Read our e-mail at: Gmail – Your Comments to the Smalbany Blog_5-3-12_1225_Notice)

Whatever the case, the matter is currently being investigated and we hope to have identified the culprits in short order, because we have an e-mail address, an IP address for the sender and the origin. In addition, the high school should know who is online at the times the comments were sent and should be able to trace the perps. Once that’s done, it’ll be quite easy to find out who was supposed to be supervising the delinquents.

It if turns out that it’s actually a fraud or a conspiracy perped by adults, that’s an entirely different kettle of fish, and will be dealt with appropriately.

You’ll see how these fit.

Parents: Do you really know where your children are and what they’re doing when you put the teachers in charge?

This is really something you should be investigating yourselves! Send a link to this blog to your Board of Education members, to the Superintendent, to the School Principal, to the FBI offices in Albany, to your elected officials and ask WHY?
