|Gubner Andy Lacks Facts|
Well I guess we can't call Gubner Andy a liar now can we? He opened his "fraud" comments with one of the truest statements I've heard escape a politician's mouth in a long time : I don't know all the facts..." So right you are Gubner, or ARE you? When Prince Andrew let fly with his sound byte heard round the world, insinuating that the M.O.U. -- aka Memo of Understanding, a common asterisk in the world of labor agreements -- is "borderline fraud" he really stuck his pointed head in a hornet's nest.
For starters Gubner, isn't "borderline fraud" a lot like "borderline pregnant?" Last I knew the legal world had no rulings on "borderline" cases and unless maybe you're describing your own personality disorders, you'd probably ought to avoid such Glen Becklike verbiage. See Andrew knows fucking well there's no such thing as "borderline fraud" but once again the real intent here is to bloody the waters so what's left of his union hating knuckle dragger constituency will seize on a chance to criminalize them danged teachers even if it's only by the most specious and serpentine manipulation of language. Cuomo and his attack chihuahua Commissioner King thrive on fanning the anti teacher fires and every chance they get they attempt to hold teacher executions in the kangaroo court of public opinion. Gubner Andy also throws around the phrase "side deal" conjuring up images of cigar smoking Phil Rumore cronies - never seen Edie gnawing on a Cohiba, but why let reality tarnish a good fantasy right Andy? -- and Pamela C. Brown, Ph.D. Harvard draped in a fur stole sporting bling up to her eyeballs signing some shady document on the back of a supplicant who's running an emory board around her toenails. Yeah Andy, them side deals. While Rumore attempts to shout down their bullshit pointing out that about half the districts in the Empire State have some sort of M.O.U. attached we get the usual mealy mouthed little league softball response from Mr. Korn of NYSUT who actually challenges Rumore's numbers and says he has no way of tracking such data. Thanks Korny, we will all be sure to remember you and your fearless leader Dick Resignutti come election time. Do the words Ianuzzi and Resignation have anything in common ? Oh I think there's a common musical note between the two and the former ought to engage in the latter. If anyone else is feeling as though the state of public education in New York State would be best captured by an Hieronymous Bosch painting at this point you are not alone.
|NYSED Executive Committee Meets to Discuss More Testing|
Dr. Pamela C. Brown PhD Harvard has waffled, flip flopped and finally weaseled out the conclusion we all knew she was searching for, the one that will forward her career chances with the likes of John King and his edubiz connections. She refused to talk to the newspaper and flubbed the email she promised she'd send. Was she consulting the psychic friends network or Tony Robbins playbook? Was she emailing James Williams for directions for his input on What Color is Your Carpetbag? No, she was just trying to figure out a way to save face, stick it to the teachers and keep everyone in Albany thinking she is still their girl. Well done, Pamela C Brown PhD Harvard. Now all you have to do is live with your cowardice surrounded by backstabbers in City Hall who are all ready telling Mary Pasciak of the Buffalo News "she's in over her head." What could possibly go wrong huh Pam? Oh and two of your supporters on the Board of Ed have inadvertently dropped out of the contest because they have trouble counting. Roz Taylor, a member of the Sorority Majority who proudly welcomed the fellow sister to town and honorary sister Ralph Hernandez who switches sides with the alacrity of a Pashtun warlord have been dropped from the ballot due to insufficient valid signatures. Taylor congratulated herself for working hard but admitted she hadn't worked smart. Yeah, no shit. Look who you brought in here as a Superintendent. Ralph is going to appeal his D.Q. I guess he might as well, it will get his name in the paper one final time before he resurfaces as a candidate for elected office in the next year or so.
The latest from BTF is the BEST news I have heard in a looooong time. Screw appealing the validity of the MOU. According to the News and Phil it looks like we're just going to invalidate our compliance with the whole stinking APPR which is what a lot of us wanted to do in the first place. Let the Lilliputians in Albany keep money from our kids and let's see how well Cuomo's little attack chihuahua and NYSED fare in that court of public opinion they love so much when the parents who are all ready looking to murder them for their bullshit testing realize they're screwing our kids again in an attempt to bully teachers. In case these knobs haven't noticed they're not exactly winning any popularity contests these days. It's nothing short of genius for Rumore at this point to completely slam the door in their stupid faces and say go ahead and keep the money. And if anyone asks me I will be the first one on the line for a pre-Regents Exam strike. What would make these bureaucrats crazier than disrupting their sacred testing in June ? I think we'd all find out pretty quickly if Lil John King has a Psych Rider on his health care package. And if he doesn't I guess he can just pay out of pocket or get Whitney Tilson from Democrats for Ed Reform to scratch him another check. In case you're still wondering, It's ON fools.
Stay tuned for a little tour of Andrew Cuomo's FRAUDLENT pals and associates. If anyone knows FRAUD, it's this guy.
