Vol. 36, No.1 March 20, 2007
IF YOU VOTE FOR THE
THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
You will be required:
- To attend at least three out of four performances each week of the movie "Bankrupting the Welfare Fund: the PSC Story", featuring Barbara Bowen and Steven London, directed by Stanley Aranowitz. Commentary by Susan Farrell on the effect of loss of medical benefits on women's health, and how this should be borne with love for the "common good". Cello music by Her Majesty, the Queen of Released Time Susan O'Malley.
- To participate in a candlelight vigil in front of President Peruggi's home. (After all, the New Caucus' Bowen/London did it in front of Chancellor Goldstein's home. Why not Lloyd/O'Malley in front of Peruggi's home?)
- To mass protest in front of Marty Markowitz's Office in Borough Hall for bringing an immediate cessation of the war in Iraq (Our own Jack Arnow believes and says that causes and events like these should be more important to the union over issues of salary and benefits - the union is for "social justice" only - but love the "world" - our faculty be damned!)
- To block traffic on Oriental Boulevard and demonstrate in front of the gate in protest of
the inhumane and indiscriminate killings
of rats by speeders on this street.
- To demonstrate on Emmons Avenue restaurants in support of meatless menus.
- To demonstrate against the KCC administration for not properly feeding the hungry seagulls on KCC beaches.
- To participate in an afternoon of protest in support of abolishing vending machines on the campus for dispensing unhealthy drinks.
- To demonstrate in front of the Library in support of banning ALL parking on the campus in an effort
to make the campus environmentally healthy.
- To demonstrate in front of Panda House's cafeteria and the
Barnes and Nobles Bookstore in support of unionizing its employees and bringing them into the PSC. (Bowen wants to expand her empire by unionizing everyone.)
To support recruitment of peaceful appearing Tibetan Buddhist monks with brightly colored robes as Security Guards
to replace current
uniforms on the campus. Jack Arnow, a Yoga buff and a member of the Peace and Justice Committee will fight for this unique and important privilege at KCC.
- To stop traffic on Coney Island Avenue during a few evening hours in protest of hit-and-run drivers worldwide who kill
stray rodents and donkeys.
- To make four ten-mile marches on Flatbush Avenue, from Marine Park to the Brooklyn Bridge, for PEACE, LOVE AND JUSTICE. Patrick Lloyd, a member of the Peace and Justice Committee* thinks that, here at Kingsborough, there is not enough authoritarian
reverence, nor is there Amazon Jungle kind of "Peace and Justice" that he prefers. So prepare yourself for a nonstop marathon of festivities and groupthink courtesy of our local chapter at Kingsborough.
IF HISTORY IS ANY GUIDE FOR HOW YOUR DUES MONEY HAS BEEN WASTED BY THE CURRENT PSC'S NEW CAUCUS, DON'T BE SURPRISED BY THE ABOVE "NO-ACTION" ACTIVITY AGENDA FOR KCC. THEY TOO WOULD WASTE YOUR TIME AND DUES MONEY ON RIDICULOUS, NONSENSICAL THEATRICS, ON THINGS IRRELEVANT TO YOUR NEEDS, AND FILL YOUR MAILBOXES WITH A CONSTANT BARRAGE OF LETTERS, FLYERS AND PHONE CALLS TO DEMONSTRATE, PROTEST AND SIT-IN FOR EVERY WORLD-WIDE CAUSE, WHILE IGNORING YOUR NEEDS!
DO YOU WANT THIS IDIOCY?
IT'S TIME TO RUN THESE "NO-ACTION" CLOWNS OUT THE FRONT GATES OF KINGSBOROUGH.

We respect the American Arbitration Association's long-standing reputation for accuracy in mailing ballots, honesty in vote counting and staying impartial in contested elections. We also firmly believe that they will not be influenced a bit by the fact that they are getting thousands of dollars of business from Barbara Bowen of the PSC. However, just to be on the safe side, we advise members of the KCC/PSC Chapter to make copies of their completed ballots before placing them in the envelopes for mailing. Keep the copy in your safe deposit box or mail it to the Patriot Office at P.O. Box 290713, Brooklyn, N.,Y. 11229 and we will keep it in our safe deposit box. You never know when and how it will come in handy.
