“John only members of the Southwest Neighborhood Association of Saratoga Springs can sit down in a chair”
I responded “Pat as a disabled individual who suffers from peripheral neuropathy, diabetes, a Charcot left foot and did I mention I have cancer, I’m protected by the Americans with a disabilities act which clearly states that reasonable accommodations must be made for people with disabilities and make no mistake about it Pat I will sue your ass and besides Pat there are a lot of chairs.”
Oh it gets worse when the meeting started Devin DalPos - grand poobah and exalted leader of the Southwest Neighborhood Association announced that “No recording devices or cameras will be allowed anyone found in violation of these my rules will be asked to leave” THEIR WAS A POLICE OFFICER PRESENT TO BACK UP HIS CLAIMS. Then he said only ‘CARD CARRYING MEMBERS OF SOUTHWEST NEIGHBOORHOOD ASSOCIATION COULD SPEAK”
Then he looked at us lesser mortals with a sneer to reinforce his mandate.
Reminded me of the old song “Signs” by The 5 Man Electrical Band
Now, hey you, mister, can't you read?
You've got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat
You can't even watch, no you can't eat
You ain't supposed to be here
The sign said you got to have a membership card to get inside
Pat Kane the man behind the Brent’s skirt came up behind me to reinforce "if I was even to touch my camera I would be removed"
Then Brent gave a nice speech about how open and transparent he would be. Fucking hilarious. Mark my words if this clown was ever elected cameras and voice recorders would be forever banned from the city council meeting and metal detectors would be installed,
I find Pat Kane quite funny. I understand he is a trainer for salesman at GE and I see a lot of his techniques in play. The body language the touching at the elbow the gentle forms of non-verbal communication meant to get the upper hand in conversations and to bond with your target and yes NXIVM uses the same techniques
Next Chris Mathiesen got up and continued his campaign of fear calling for more cops to patrol the mean streets of Saratoga and calling for a new Fire Station because you know “never been a better time to bond money”
But the funniest person of the night was Michele Madigan who proclaimed that people “should be able to pay their property taxes ten years in advance and with a discount”
No mention of how the city could possibly calculate what your property taxes would be ten years down the road or why the City would want to blow ten years of revenue in 365 days, but I don’t believe the gum smacking Madigan has ever had a deep thought in her life.
Till next time breath free just don’t take any pictures of Brent or Pat Kane might have you removed from the State.
