Lost In Yonkers: On Andrea Stewart-Cousins

by Chris Chichester on 01/25/18

Incompetence infects our state legislature in Albany.  It is a predictable and appalling fact I first witnessed in September, 1991.  As a graduate student at the State University of New York at Albany I began a 10-month fellowship in the Capitol press office for Senate Majority Leader Ralph J. Marino.  The experience changed my life by eliminating the idealistic delusion that our elected officials are dedicated to a standard of excellence.  

Senate Democratic Conference Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins is elected in 2006. Her 10+ years in Albany is preceded by ten years as a Westchester County legislator and four years as the director of community affairs for Yonkers. In fact, she last worked in a position that did not bestow a taxpayer-subsidized paycheck for governmental stupor at New York Telephone. When Mario M. Cuomo is governor. Her life in disconnected from the free market and entrepreneurial economy.

From her official biography: 

"Since the very beginning of her tenure in government, Andrea Stewart-Cousins has espoused the values of empathy, empowerment and civic engagement." 

What a joke. 

From Merriam-Webster

Definition of empathy

1: the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner

I don't require you to vicariously experience my feelings and thoughts, Andrea. I'll call Steve Perry and ask him to put Journey back together if I require your empathy.  If you insist on empathy for any individual in our Empire State it must be directed at the imprisoned taxpayer.  Our state-and-local tax burden punishes investment, creativity, innovation and drives our citizens across the state line -- permanently. 

From "Senator Stewart-Cousins Joins NARAL Panel on Women's Empowerment" at her official site on January 19, 2018: 

"Every part of your life is governed by politics."

Wrong, Andrea. Every part of a life is not governed by politics.  Your life is an insular existence defined by constant Machiavellian calculation. Your life is fundraising, polling, franking, per-diem.  Your life is the pathetic appeasement of special-interest groups.  Your life is the constant quest for degenerate spending, insane tax increases and pork-barrel payola.  Your life is alien to 19+ million New Yorkers separated from the capital compulsion to decipher thinking in the offices/saunas that comprise the Legislative Office Building.  

At this NARAL funeral I am confident Senator Stewart-Cousins failed to celebrate total abortions in New York from 2011 to 2015.  According to the Vital Records at the state Department of Health: 

2015: 86,627
2014: 93,299
2013: 94,326
2012: 97,502
2011: 102,678
Total: 474,432

During her everlasting time in public life Senator Stewart-Cousins has not addressed the appalling numbers that define this accumulation of extinction. She must champion abortion with the fanaticism expected by the misanthropic Left. By placing a gold-embossed sign outside Room 907 of the Legislative Office Building: 474,432.  To remind every visitor that death becomes her. 

From her opening remarks in the Senate chamber on January 8, 2018: 

"I stand here today wearing all black in solidarity with women everywhere. It is Hollywood . . . "

Hollywood is certainly a city that reflects the same values as Yonkers. Senator Stewart-Cousins must invite Meryl Streep to Philipse Manor Hall State Historic Site for a news conference about oppression and objectification. Perhaps Eliot Spitzer is available to join her in black with his favorite scythe. 

Senator Stewart-Cousins is delusional given the male state legislators/gigolos alongside her.  She failed to specifically condemn constant, disgusting behavior in the offices she knows best.  Every day in Albany she receives a reminder of predatory behavior in the form of her colleagues. It is a silence that demands a retirement announcement. 

More from Senator Stewart-Cousins during her opening remarks as she identifies with the plight of the blue-collar New Yorker: 

"Last year I had the opportunity to work with Saru Jayaraman, the founder and President of the Restaurant Opportunity Center United, as we drafted our tip workers bills. She was even at the Golden Globes last night as a guest of Amy Poehler."

Ms. Poehler, formerly of Saturday Night Live, is the perfect individual to demonstrate how the Yonkers senator immerses herself in buffoonery, irrelevancy and condescension.  If I require an enhanced understanding of life from Ms. Poehler I'll watch her performance in Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo as Ruth displaying Tourette Syndrome with Coprolalia.

Senator Stewart-Cousins: 

"We must take guns from domestic abusers, require gun dealers to sell only child-proof weapons .  . . "

I live in George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four because Senator Stewart-Cousins commandeered an introduction to the child-proof weapon.  Does such a gun not fire bullets? Is it missing a trigger? Is the firing pin block damaged? Does the extractor malfunction?  I'll child-proof my Glock-17 to enhance the eternal sunshine of your spotless mind, Andrea.  By keeping it locked away from the outstretched hands of children. 

While Senator Stewart-Cousins is fascinated with Hollywood, Ms. Poehler and NARAL there is an organization in Yonkers that requires her attention: The Grimy Motherfuckers.  On December 10, 2014 United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara unsealed a superseding indictment charging 13 members of this street gang with racketeering, conspiracy and fire arms offenses.  Among other violent crimes. He said: 

"As alleged, this Yonkers-based street gang plagued the community of the Schlobohn Housing Project with drug dealing and lethal violence. With today's Indictment and arrests, we are another step closer to making the streets and citizens in this neighborhood safer."


"The 2012 arrests of the Strip Boyz left GMF the dominant gang in the area around the Schlobohn Housing Project, and GMF have continued to engage in acts of violence and intimidation to preserve their dominance of the Schlobohn Housing Projects and the surrounding areas that they previously shared with the Strip Boyz. In order to protect their territory and enhance the reputation of the gang, the GMF members have committed numerous acts of violence, including murder, attempted murders, stabbings and assaults. 

"The 10-count Superseding Indictment, United States vs. Da'Quan Johnson, et. al., charges DA'QUAN JOHNSON, JAMES JOHNSON, KENNETH MOORE, JAMEKE BROWN, DAQUAN COUCH, DARIN FIELDS, ANTHONY FORD, FLOYD GRAHAM, CHRISTOPHER GREBINGER, RONNIE KING, GERALD MARTIN, JAMES McCALLUM and WILBUR RANDOLPH with conspiring to violate the RICO statue and with using, carrying, possessing and discharging firearms during and in relation to their participation in the conspiracy."

The Google search for "Andrea Stewart-Cousins + Grimy Motherfuckers" is: Your Search Did Not Match Any News Results.  This gang is a disgusting presence in her hometown and there is nothing available online to reflect a syllable of concern.  She is indifferent to the vile reality in this city of 195,976.

You, Andrea, must assist the Strip Boyz with punctuation and grammar. B-o-y-z. Why can't these gang members spell? It is shocking.  The other gangs marauding your city streets are the Cliff Street Gangsters and the Elm Street Wolves.  I am disappointed the Sharks and the Jets are not cited in the indictment. Perhaps if George Chakiris danced for these sociopaths the quality of life will improve in Yonkers. 

The ineptitude afflicting Senator Stewart-Cousins fails to draw the attention of Governor Andrew "The Situation" Cuomo.  Our 56th governor must work productively with the Senate Democratic Conference Leader to implement a legislative agenda. It is a cruel fantasy. Given the bankrupt confessions on her official site the leadership required to reverse our long, slow decline into oblivion is an impossibility. 

Empire State, R.I.P.
