Asses and lipservice

Breaking down the individual ingredients of your standard hotdog ain’t a pretty thing. This tasty vittle incorporates the most undesirable of parts of multiple dead animals, which are then ground to a paste and mixed with enough salt to raise the standard person’s blood pressure off the charts. And that’s before they toss in the preservatives of mysterious origin.

In fact, were those who scarf down wieners on a semi-regular basis in the know of the process involved in the making this curious link, they probably wouldn’t be too thrilled at the prospect of buying them, much less from a pushcart in the park.

And the franks Ed Miller sold from his carousel-side dog cart were no exception. But Congress Park strollers liked ’em, and they made it evident in their massive outpouring of comments since the short-lived vendor was expunged by City Hall. To these walkers, he offered a cheap way to load up and move on while meandering through the park on a sunny day. The only problem was that he had no real legal right to sell his fare in the park, as a law suit would soon alert the city.

Sure enough, if one fellow seems to have a good thing going, another capitalist is going to come along and look for a piece of action. That capitalist was Kathy Kahl, who was chagrined when the city refused to stamp her permit to operate a similar cart in the park. The rational given by then-Public Works fixture Tom McTygue was that Kahl’s operation could be the beginning of a long line of vendors looking to edge in on the action. He also noted that her cart offered a bit more than the standard dish of asses and lips, along with a menu of Italian ice.

So here starts the fervor. First, newly installed DPW Commissioner Skip Scirocco tells Miller he’s banished from the park because the citys ordinance simply doesn’t allow vendors to sell there, with or without a permit. Simply put, he’s right. While Miller could set up in a variety of public locations outside the so-called “central business district,” he’s simply not allowed to defile the tranquil beauty of Congress Park.

Automatically, the anti-McTygue contingent threw up its arms and blamed the whole debacle on the deposed commissioner, claiming a variety of conspiracy theories that allowed Miller, a self-admitted personal friend of McTygue, to set up shop in the park. The problem is, McTygue was one of three commissioners to sign off on Miller’s permit two years in a row. Among the others were McTygue’s ally in Accounts, John Franck; and McTygue’s enemy-by-association in Public Safety, Ron Kim.

So basically, all three commissioners either tacitly or physically signed off on Miller’s permit without bothering to check if it was actually legal. Former Mayor Valerie Keehn claimed she raised the subject with the council, but determined it was “a political fight not worth fighting,” according to the Saratogian. So instead, she simply convinced Kahl to sue to city. Now that’s good government at work.

Let’s pan to the present. Kahl is moving hotdogs outside the beer store on Excelsior Avenue, Miller is prepared for a season without customers and hungry pedestrians in Congress Park are wondering what in the asses and lips happened to their carousel-side franks. The strange part about everything is that the city recently revisited the vendors law, meaning that all involved parties should have had a cursory knowledge of the ordinance and could have revised it to incorporate a modest number of stands operating in the park.

Instead, the public has Citzen Scirocco claiming no permits will be issued for the park until a “fair solution” can be meted out in the halls of government. With May just a week away, it’s not likely to happen this summer. Any amendment to the ordinance would require at least one public hearing, which would need to be scheduled a month after city officials discussed the matter and developed a law. Given the glacial pace of city government, an amendment isn’t something that's likely over the next month, much less this summer.

All of this all could have been resolved years ago, had someone used an ounce of gray matter. But because the commissioners and their full-time deputies lack even a remote sense of the city’s skewed ordinances, the vendor issue is back on the table. the asses in City Hall can playing lip service to the press, and everyone else gets a heaping helping of ‘go fuck yourselves’ to take to the bank. Looking on the bright side, at least the reporters will have a new ‘issue’ to focus on instead of the ones that will truly wreck havoc on this city.

The city seems to be taking a look at all ordinances as of late. Sandwich boards are being questioned (are there permits in place, is the placement 30 inches from the brick and mortal building, do buildings have permits for awnings, etc). It has gone beyond the asses and lips sold in the park.

And speaking of asses and lips, does anyone in the Collamer building feel that the city could have picked a better time to block access to their building? Just when walking traffic starts to pick up, City Hall decides to rape the tax payers of $210,000 for steps and all but shut down the sidewalk. STEPS! Steps to a building that everyone is screaming is unfit for its tenants. $210,000 for STEPS?

Ho,

McTygue didn't want her to horn in on his action. So what you are saying is Tommy had his guy in there and that was enough. Another vendor would cut into his profits. I have to say it is not surprising. He had the same kind of arrangements with certain caterers renting out the Canfield Casino.

Ed Miller did not sell your usual Hot Dogs. The man was a professional who took great pride both in the quality of his food and in the cleanliness of his cart. This kind of professionalism is sorely lacking in most of the other low rent food vendors in the city. He also was a very upbeat character who was funny and cheerful. Did I mention his Hot Dogs were $1.50?

Enter Kathy Kahl, she had a cart that was in front of the arts center staffed by gum smacking distracted eighteen years olds whose idea of personal hygiene was to wipe their hands on there pants. Needless to say she quickly went out of business.

Enter Valarie Keehn always looking to pick a fight with McTygue she recruited and paid for Kahl’s lawyer to file a Lawsuit. Keehn all but guaranteed Kahl that she would be re-elected and would reward her loyalty with the plum spot in the park regardless of the quality or cleanliness of her cart. She was after all a card carrying progressive and one of Val’s Pals.

Ah the best laid plans of mice and Keehn often go astray. Now the lawyers will argue of Kings and cabbages for the next two years. The People of which Keehn proclaimed herself the mayor of will suffer the loss one of the last cheap pleasures of the Park.

The elites will partake of their Twenty dollar boxed lunches from Putnam Street Market with little concern that there little private school spawn will witness the spectacle of one of the hoi poli dripping mustard on there shirts.

Oh the horror!!! These sensitive youth could suffer permanent scars that only years of therapy from a proper life coach like Val could ever hope to correct.

Our world is all about the almighty dog now. Is it just me or are we still suffering from post election syndrome? We still are fighting the same Keehn/McTygue bullshit. The difference here is now Scirocco has been dragged into it because it is an obvious McTygue fuck up. Skip has done the right thing for the city trying to avoid a lawsuit. What I don't understand is why is Commissioner Franck getting a free pass on this? Because he and McTygue are in cahoots!

I had one of those dogs last year. Then it became a footrace back home to lose it out the back end in some spot other than my trousers.

Ah, but it's such a nice touch for this make believe city, Mr Hot Dog Man and all.

"Look, Johnny, there's a handicapped man selling hot dogs from a cart -- just like they used to do in the old days!"

This matter is real simple: the ordinance says "no vendors". That leaves two options: enforce the current ordinance or change it.

Of source, Val Keehn again showed her true competence in all this, didn't she? Sue the city, she advised? Why am I not surprised?

This city used to work effectively and efficiently. But that changed when the Bored Hoousewives Club moved into town, with too much time on heir hands and no sense of the city's past.

Now we've become a bunch of boobs on one hand; and a 21st century version of Clifton Park on the other. Congratulations, carpetbaggers.

BTW: I saw a black guy downtown yeasterday while driving thru. First time in quite a while.

What are the odds he is a city resident? I am more inclined to predict he is a restarant worker, from out of town.

The Progressives Philosophy of Deception.
Rule One: Deception


This is a typical example of the way the Neo-Liberals operate. They encourage someone in this case a third Party {Kahl} to indirectly attack your political enemy or in this case a friend of your political enemy {Miller}. Using this method they are able to distance themselves from the attack. A more serious example was the bogus FBI and DEC investigation against McTygue or the even worse State Police investigation against Bruno.

Rule Two Power of Press. Using a sympathetic left learning media {Saratogian} to get your message out with unfounded headlines that cry things such as Civil rights allegation lodged against DPW. This when the newspaper knows that you, in this case {David and Val Keehn} are behind those very same allegations. Again back to rule one deception.

The power of Press Conference. The most basic public relations tool you can use to convey your message through the sympatric media to the general public Example {Scott Johnson is using illegal methods in a grab for power} Make sure your lies get front page coverage.

Rule Three Fear
Use aggressive and belligerent tactics to convey a sense of fear in the populace. Political power can be maintained only if it is united by fear. Underlying much of the intra-progressive warfare in recent years has been a steady debate on just how angry and alarmed to sound. Political battles are for both the hearts and minds, definitely never flatter, or be gracious, and always seek to outrage others. Define your opponents as crooks thieves and dangerous to your children. Take no prisoners never except compromise.

Rule Four
always seek to outrage others. This happened tonight at Mayor Scott Johnson's first quarterly address, called Saratoga Speaks. The topic tonight was recreation. Keehnacs started attacking Johnson for taking away the outdoor field at the south side, and replacing it with an indoor facility. These are the very same people who supported it when it was Keehn's idea.

Now all the elements are brought together.

Deception.
It appears this is grassroots opposition but nothing could be father from the Truth. This is called Astroturfing The goal which is to disguise the efforts of a political entity {Keehacs} as an independent public reaction to the Rec Center. Any thing that Johnson does will be ridiculed and attacked.

Next get the Saratogian on board to make it appear as legitimate opposition and not a political front.

Next instill fear. Our children will be put at risk because of the loss of outdoor playing fields

Finally in your face rude and obnoxious behavior like shouting down the Mayor.

Mayor Johnson's "Saratoga Speaks" was a fine success. The new Rec Facility looks like it will go without a hitch. A few neighbors had concerns but are fine with the idea. Former Mayor Keehn did a great job calling out a local developer and his attorney who wanted to sway people to be against it. Once that happened that developer who wants to build Mansions there left with his tail between his legs. The guy in that 8:05 post was totally fabricating anything he claimed happened there. Not one person was shouting down the Mayor or anyone else for that matter. Everyone was for that location for years now but it was always held up by one DPW commish for political gain. He's gone and so moves ahead with the Center.

BREAKING NEWS! HOT DOG MAN MILLER BROUGHT IN FOE QUESTIONING!

Just released on Channel 13 News was a press conference by Mayor Johnson that Ed Miller, the hot man is being questioned in connection with the McTygue ring that has been already under their own investigation for illegal dumping, oil spills at the DPW garage as well as slave labor. Apparently Ed's hot dog cart was under scrutiny for the strange favor in his sauce his hot dogs were dipped in. The EPA and the DEC both concluded after testing of the strange substance that it in fact was a match with the blacktop McTygue stole from the city for his farm and the oil that was spilled in the city garage. They found that when mixing the two it was identical to Ed's mystery sauce. One source has said that it is now being investigated to see if it was actually a spill at the garage or just a secret storage tank for the hot dog sauce. Either way, it is becoming clearer that the piece of shit Mctygue is responsible. Also the Mayor mentioned the IRS is involved checking out Commissioner John Franck who has filed tax returns on behalf of Mr. Miller.

Here's an idea. If you want to eat these disgusting hot dogs why not tell Ed McTygue or Tom Miller to start a delivery service. Part in the lot across the street from the carousel with the hot dog cart in the back of your truck. Have the customers call in their orders from the park and you can deliver them across the way. This way that lazy bastard McTygue can get some exercise in the process.

So I got closer to find out what was up. Much to my surprise it was a rally! They are ready to announce their next candidate for Mayor of Saratoga. Their nominee is none other than Ed "The Hot Dog Man" Miller. A few were sceptical at first but I guess they came to a consensus. These Dumocrats just can't get it right!

Oh, Ho! Aren't you so clever and funny. Who's your informant? Well, it's time to get a new one, because you are starting to become as boring and bad as the very news outlet you so pompously put down. Where is this massive outpouring of complaints that Tommy's toyboy Big-head Eddie can't sell his slimy hotdogs in Congress Park anymore? On this blog? Don't you know there are only about 15 knuckleheads that even read this blog and about five who have nothing better to do with their time than to take out their childhood frustrations or their own feelings of inadequacy on some blog that nobody cares about. I suspect some former Finance Commissioners and former Independence Party candidates are among those five and maybe even a former spouse. It's the guessing that keeps us comin' back.

By the by, I have it from a very reliable source (once again, Ho, you should get one of these if you want to be taken seriously), that it wasn't the KFC Mayor Johnson that your gal Val was putting in his little place, but the slimy (there's that word again) attorney representing Dave J-helleneck, who happened to be sitting right next to him, and happened to have built most of the Mcmansions that overlook the scenic Jefferson Terraces and the southside park. Hmmm, does Mr. Ionello (can you say hair implants) really think anyone believes that either he or his buddy Dave give one hoot about recreational opportunities for anyone in this City? Probably not after last night. Too bad Mr. Mayor didn't recognize this developer and call him out first. Then he could have been the hero of the night, instead of the Val gal. I guess Dave hasn't needed to be bailed out of jail yet. In due time. Get ready for that call, Scotty. Although, you might be getting one from Uncle Joe, first. At least that's what my sources are saying.

Der Valkyrie Keehn showed up late for Mayor Johnson's meeting with her toadie, finneran, in tow. Her body language telegraphed her intent to disrupt. She interrupted a speaker who had the floor and was asking legitimate questions regarding the rec proposal since his home is located next to the proposed site. She demanded that he identify himself, accused him of representingdeveloper who builds "McMansions" as if that was some kind of crime. Her attempt to discredit and to disrupt is aregular tactic of cultists and she used her two years at the council table to hone her skills. Lets not forget she alone stonewalled this project because of her jealousy for McTygue. Let's not forget she accepted campaign contributions from one of the biggest and wealthiest developers (Newkirk) in the capitol district while at the same time she doubled the size of her own house on Benedict St. Her emotional outbursts and bogus accusations are counterproductive and lendAno nothing to public discourse.

Another good reason Mctygue got the boot from city hall being that the general public grew very tired of his smoke and mirror routine. Promise the world at election time. He would make the usual promise to the lowly tax paying slob and in the end would reward the developer or the big campaign contributor. If this jackass fixed the steps when they should have been years ago it would not have been half that amount of money. Same with him holding up the police facility and the Rec Center.

Nothing could be done there without his say so. I've got news for you idiots! McTygue doesn't and never did own the park. That park was there long before him and doing fine and will be there long after he's dead. Did he do any of the planting there? No! Did he do any of the construction? No! Did he do any other work on Spit and Spat or the beautiful stone work? No! The
ponds? No! Did he profit off any of this work done in the park while he was in office? Absolutely! Can you say Kickbacks?

Again I violate my policy of not responding to people who lack an IQ higher than their age. But let's go to the races, shall we?

Are you wondering who reads this blog? Well, I'll direct you to the tiny number at the bottom of the page indicating that roughly 67,000 people have pulled it up for whatever reason in the past year. So if that somehow translates to 15, then please show me the math. Among those 67,000 people are members of the media, the city government, the local police, state legislators and one illiterate bloke named YOU, as a routine glance at iSaratoga's IP log shows.

And furthermore, it doesn't take "sources" to attend a meeting. It take citizens using their god-given right to be involved in civics. We could use a few more of them, and not jackasses that rely on 'sources' to bring news back from a public meeting.

Lastly, go fuck yourself. Please do us all a favor and play in rush-hour traffic on the Northway. Don't worry, we won't call an ambulance. Have a nice day!

But it's communication. And that's what this site was intended to foster. I fear some of these bullshit posts, while humorous, might thwart somewhat intelligible readers from lending a voice. Anyone care to offer an opinion on this quandry?

My Input, as per your request.

Your posts are good and valuable.

It's the theComments that have fucked up the site and turned it into something not-so-good.

The answer, of course, if your own use of the Delete button. I sense of bit of trepidation on your part in heavy moderating of comments, but I don't think you should feel as such.

I think your Rules of Engagement should be as follows:

"A comment does not make it onto the board unless it is:

a) Directly related to the original post

b) Presenting a logical, coherent and on-point Opinion, Reaction or Rebuttal to that post. "

Until you initiate some sort of policy along those lines, your Board will remain what it has unfortunately become: a political graffitti wall for agenda-driven
political activists.

Just filter out the BS -- nobody is going to hold that against you with a "Freedom of Expression" argument. You should not feel obligated to provide a forum for the half-dozen or so nut jobs, who are in essense using your space for "unpaid political commercial messages."

Well, will hold it agsins tyou except the offenders themselves. Let them start their own baord, bitching about you, then.

Get rid of them, and you will improve the quality of the disources, increase your audience (attracting new readers as well as brining back former ones) and better serve tham all with your answer to the "failings of local journalism".

Hey, Ho Hum. The main thing that is thwarting somewhat intelligible readers from lending a voice is your own writings. How to fix your quandry? Hire a real journalist, or be content with what you have created....nothing that will "foster communication". I sense that you are feeling a bit embarrassed about your juvenile fit early. To say something like, "go f--- yourself", and then write that you want to "generate good dialogue" is just way too funny.

You spew lies and then get defensive when someone challenges you. So sorry to have hit a nerve, but you have NO credibility. This little piece of cyberspace is nothing more than an amusement, and for some a sick one.

While one thing the Keehacs can never be accused of is humor. The problem Horatio is the Keehacs just won’t go away on the contrary they are akin to a resistance from of bacteria. You just can’t get rid of them. They are ideologically driven simple minded and absolutely convinced of the righteousness of there cause. They don’t measure success against actual results only in the disruptions that they can cause.

Much like Hitler in Berlin in 45 who would rather see Germany destroyed than survive without him they would rather see the quality of life in Saratoga denigrated to a point that we are little more then a Clifton Park, if they cannot hold the reigns of power. To them Val’s defeat wasn’t a defeat at all just a temporary setback. Even when faced with the loss of the Governor who they saw as an ally and one of there most prominent members stint in an Alcohol Rehab center in Newburgh they are as undeterred as ever. The very nature of their plan is to grind down the opposition, and you Horatio are seen as one of the opposition. So please don’t fall into their trap they hate you with there usual passion and have gone to great lengths to find out who you are. So please hold your nose and carry on. Nothing would make them happier than to see you close.

Another beautiful day in Saratoga. Took some out of town friends for a stroll in the Park.

WHAT A DISGRACE

The carousel was closed and dirty.

The ponds were empty and fifthly

Some poor pathetic ducks were huddled in a stinking mud hole were the pond should have been,

Even the Portal Potties were gone.

The once great Italian Gardens looked like a dump.


Skippy you have seemed to mastered the art of saying No

No Hot Dogs

No Carousel

No Portal Potties

So now that you’ve figured that out how to say No TRY DOING SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE For a change.

I post on here sometimes and some I admit is to be funny. But let's be real. This one poster who uses several names does nothing but attack Keehn and some of her supporters. He is a democratic committee member who is a big reason for the committee's disfunction. He's a McTygue relative as well as Lew Benton's relative so it is kind of tricky.

AHHHHH-my-friend-HA!

I can hardly imagine the drivel you've deleted... given what has oozed through the filters. Your noble attempts to keep the kids from wiping boogers on the underside of the blogotable have destined you to become CyberSisyphus.

It would have been nice to see more response...or lack of same... to the Sacandaga post. What you HAVE proved is you can silence debate on a whooped-dog post by creating a new post. But that's a lousy burden to place on you. AND understand that I don't fault you for pouncing on genuine news on a timely basis.

To that end, I missed Mayor Johnson's neighborhood talk about the recreation facility. From the coverage in the papers, it seemed newsworthy. A worthy topic for your musings and the insights of your educated community. But of course WAY to easy for the myriad one-joke wonders.

In the news broadcast now behind me, the host introduced an author who just wrote "The Death of the Grown-up," with the subtitle "How America's Arrested Development Is Bringing Down Western Civilization." It is incredibly timely because I've been wrestling with a way to articulate my failure to grasp why so many of the kids out there have to demonstrate how many 4-letter words are in their vast vocablulary. I think I may have advanced the ball by the first use of "boogers," raising the bar to 7-letter childishness.

From Lenny Bruce, it was ground-breaking originality. From Jerry Rubin, it was high-stakes political discourse. But from your ANONs, I guess they giggle with delight when they see their best prose on a site worthy of far better stuff.

This started about poor Eddie an honest man selling a good product at a fair price now just collateral damage in the on going Keehn wars.
Keehn Finnegan and Kim the unholy trio that still want to bankrupt the City. While here’s what’s going on, at the next city council meeting Kim will get his public safety assistance position. Then he will Waste no time in appointing another piece of political deadwood that happens to be unemployed at the moment,he will immediately tap Linda Benton for the position. This after he has given repeated assurances to other council members that he wouldn’t appoint her and would only appoint a fully qualified candidate.

Yea right like he did with Finnegan. How long is it going to take before Johnson realizes the kind of lying self indulgent scum he is dealing with? When did it become the cities responsibility to employ and in some cases give free housing to every member of the Benton Clan aren’t you rich enough?

Can the elections of 2009 come soon enough? Getting rid of Keehn was a good start but Kim must go to finish the job once and for all.

Truer words were n'er spoken.

Everyone else,

Read this post, because this is the policy I'm contemplating. It's nice to have such spirited conversation, but much of the message is getting lost in the ongoing Keehn-McTygue dialog. The fact that there is still such a conversation is rather remarkable, in my opinion. However, it's grown to a fervor that I can no longer moderate.

12:50,

As my father once said, don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out. Good riddance to foul rubbish. Unfortunately, you'll be back. And you'll probably post too. This is why I suggested you do a little tap dance on the Northway. Maybe take up drinking bleach and ammonia in the meantime. It's the only way to ensure I won't have to deal with you any longer.

THis post is exactly what you wanted. McTygue IS directly responsible for this mess as is John Franck and Ron Kim. These three voted for this guy to set up shop illegally. Has nothing to do with the hot dog guy himself. He's just a poor stiff trying to make a buck. Although being friends with Tommy McT does raise eyebrows.
As far as that assistany's position, that job is already filled. It will a transfer from Franck's account's dept. who is sick of who else? McTygue's girly Sthephanie Voight. She pissed off all the staff in DPW and then Franck did a political favor and took her on in his dept. Now she is wreaking havoc in Accounts as well. Why to go Franckfurter.
Talk about finishing the deal! Let's vote Franck's ass out in 2009. This will be the last of the McTygue leftovers.

Look at your blog compared to other local blogs.
You generally have numerous comments while the other blogs often have no or very few comments. Some of the people who comment are hung up certain issues and people. But like everything else in life, you have to take to good with the bad.

Compare these idiotic comments to reading a newspaper.
Who reads every sentence in the newspaper? Most people skip over articles and writers that they don't like and only read what is of interest to them.

How can anybody even begin to take seriously people like Eileen Finneran a defunct school teacher who keeps MAGIC CRYSTALS on her desk? Or Ron Kim calling the Mayor dishonest while he pounds on his chest. How about the whole much of them kneeling down in front of some guy called Vanguard, The fact Linda Benton will soon be joining this circus as Kim’s assistant is so reprehensible it doesn’t even deserve to be the subject of reasonable dialogue.

Here's a guy who travels out of the country to third world countries to smuggle bizarre items back into our country. He's been tailed by Iraqi extremists for a little over a month now. He's also been using smoke and mirrors to keep from people watching him. Examples being accusing others of cult activities such as Nxvium or Vanguard.

Anyone care to offer an opinion on this quandry?"

I always thought it would be an interesting idea to flag and maybe isolate in a seperate folder titled "posts i would have banned or otherwise considered s---canning." Perhaps with annotations by you if needed. That way people can see what standards you have, and with the appropriate caveat emptor dispensed, visit the sewer as often as they like.

I have no idea if this is technically possible, or maybe too much work to consider--but you asked, and i think if you could do this it would be a way to serve a lot of needs.

Mamie Or LT maybe your right if I didn’t support McTygue and jumped on the Keehn and Benton bandwagon I could have gotten one of those free apartments Gerard gives out. But then I’ve have to become one of the NEXUM flesh eating Zombies like you.

You keep telling yourself that's how it went down. JohnFranck is a snake and bringing that bitch from DPW to Accounts will be his downfall. More trouble coming!

after anon 11:27 is done with diarhea of the mouth he will have diarhea at the other end from the nasty hot dogs. Serves him right. He's the only poster that is allowed to talk trash. A legend in his own mind. Maybe if he had a city job he could afford something better. Once a loser, always a loser.
