The City of Troy, New York, "Where Henry Hudson Turned Around."

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

WE'LL TURN THIS BLOG AROUND

First, we are proud to unveil our newest feature. The Jim Gordon Countdown Clock. This clock shows the number of days Gordon has to consent to the release of the 911 call from his home* made by his wife- when she overreacted - and then later regretted making the call. It's an easy thing to do and it would make all the voters feel much better.

Second, we have stored up a number of comments that will not be posted. A number of them attack Mr. Gordon with unverified rumors. They will not be posted. Again, we will not post comments that accuse a candidate or another of something that is potentially defamatory.

We have also refused to post a number of comments about Mr. Cooper as well as former Mayor Tutunjian and a few others. Again, some of these comments are fine except for the addition of an unverified accusation: such as so-and-so molests lemurs. Ain't going to post it.

And no, we are not going to allow the old city hall crowd to viciously attack Mr. Cooper or anyone else for that matter. Mr. Cooper did not view us as an interloping competitor in the political/social media world when we re-entered the fray. He re-posted some of our posts which drove visitors to the Troy Polloi. We do not agree on all things with Mr. Cooper but we are not going to allow people to throw unsubstantiated accusations his way. Ain't going to happen.

Why? Cooper is a citizen who has opinions. He is not in office. He is not running for office. He is not gnawing away on the public teat like Chris Christie attacking a carnivore platter for two at Dakota. He also doesn't need us to defend him. He appears quite capable of that himself. But, we will. Cooper doesn't like Mr. Tutunjian. In that, judging by the last two elections, he is hardly on an island.**

On the other hand, Tutunjian is on the public teat. Tutunjian is one of Jim Gordon's primary backers and chief advisors. It's not really Gordon's fault. Tutunjian is the GOP equivalent of the elder statesman of the party. Sometimes you draw a royal flush. Gordon drew 2 of a kind. Why is this a big deal? Tutunjian, as mayor, used his position to punish people who publicly criticized him or his administration. In particular, he wielded the code department like a tin-horn dictator. This is a demonstrable fact. The Jim deSeve incident is only the most notorious of these efforts. That effort failed (go figure) but it is well documented. The fact remains, we cannot countenance any candidate associated with someone who illegally attempted to intimidate the opposition. It is not about taxes, budgets, charters  and all that silly crap. It is about someone who would have been more at home in  some Central American palace than in the mayors office of an upstate New York city. It cuts to the very heart of our democracy.

So yes, we will not allow Mr. Cooper to be defamed. We take care of our friends. That's how we'll do it. That's fair. After all, it's not like we're giving Cooper and his family county jobs because they can't find work in the private sector.

If you don't like it, we don't know what else to say. There are other political sites out there. Feel free to visit them. Or start one. Attack us all you want. Bash our chosen candidates. Criticize public officials. Question authority. Lets dial back the craziness. But not too much.

*It may also be the number of days before Gordon is elected.

** Unless its a very large island, maybe like Australia***

*** Australia is actually a continent so maybe like New Zealand****

**** If it were as big as Australia

Couldn't get a county job but there are county orange jump suites available. As far as the "friends" aspect of your latest blog my father used to tell me two things 1.) you lay with dogs you get fleas 2.) you are who you hang with. Jim Deseve well they come in 3's and there's your third. I guess WNYT isn't a good source. Now you run with the Jim 911 tapes because that will do for you what the Geppetto mailer did for Rodney. HG4YN.

6:04 you are delusional, comparing the Rodney mailer to a possible domestic violence incident? Are you serious? No wonder you can't get elected to save your life. Your pitiful

Post it in the TROY page Bobby

Please lets tone down the rhetoric. Even Mr.Deseve isn't angry at Harry any more. And there's more to having children than just paying child support. I watched the WNYT clip and it's a fact the elderly are easily confused. You should block that HG4YN person.

PS: Mr Cox, I don't agree with the theory Ernest was used to siphon the votes of blacks from Rodney. The Everett signs I have seen in Troy were on the properties of whites which leads me to believe he had many supporters.

Are you kidding me, you wont post about cooper because you like him but I have read many bad comments about Harry and gordon and let that go through because you hate them.you let cooper post what he wants (and yes calling names)but wont let people post against him, this site is no better the troy page that he created and blocked if you disagreed with him about harry.

6:58 how do you know what comments are posted or not posted unless you were the one posting them? You seem to know a lot about comments not posted, how is that possible unless your the author?

Thank you Ernest.

It's interesting that people think Wade put Ernest up to running for Mayor. Lots of influential Dems tried to counsel Everett to run for City Council his first time out. Everett insisted on Mayor. Yes, it may have helped Wade in the end, but Wade must be some amazing Zvengali to convince a young, up and coming guy to go for something he was sure to lose. Wade isn't the wizard of Oz, you guys are giving him way more credit for manipulation than he deserves.

They're obsessed with Wade. McCashion has wet dreams about him nightly. It's all the poor man can talk about. It just underscores Wade's influence, hes laughing all the way to the polls.

Let me know how prison food tastes Harry when you inevitably end up there. I never made it to taco Thursday's, but I'm sure you would have been the inmate running around eating all the leftover food left on the trays.

put a picture of your driving report.

Drew Cooper said...

Not enough space for that

Drew Cooper said...

You keep posting about my driving record and your going to cost me the election! Wait, I'm not running for anything! Your obsession with me is starting to worry me..........Not! Keep it fake

Randy, why even respond to these people. Anyone who knows you knows you are as real as it gets. That's why they harass you on all the blogs. Your a good man and a better father! Keep your chin up and keep doing what your doing. You must be on to something because Harry Tutunjian doesn't like you calling him out for what he is, and we all know what he is. We also know what you are, a decent man and a great dad. Keep your chin up Randy, you have many fans.

I'm sorry, refresh my memory, how many anti Harry comments on Franco's tailspin were ever printed? Zero! You clowns are crying like little children when they can't get a lollipop. The situation is the exact opposite now and it pissed you people off. Such hypocrisy

Drew Cooper said...

Thank you for the kind words. No one believes a word these losers say anyway. Why they go through the trouble of lying about me i dont know, must be bored down at the county building. But to be honest the more they obsess about me the more it shows how pitiful they are. They aren't even men enough to put their name on their comments. Big cowards. I thank you for the kind words, they mean alot

8:07, you want a tissue?

8:07, you obviously are not a member of the Troy ny group. Not everyone hates the Troy republicans in that group and there are plenty of people who defend them in that group who don't get kicked out. So your spreading lies trying to discredit that page, but that page has become way more than just Randy Cooper. So before you bash people, get your facts straight. Or better yet, join the group and find out for yourself!
