The Smell of Elections

Boy, oh, boy, do I love election season.

You know why? Because people start bitching. And if they have been bitching, they start bitching LOUDER. Diego Hernandez starts writing more in the Emerald with empty accusations of racism. People actually respond. Other people start forming ‘Take Back the Campus’ coalitions that address issues that aren’t even affected by student opinion. Grievances go up by 100% (because no one files grievances during the rest of the year). And the rest of the student population actually pays attention to the ASUO.

Stay tuned, shitstorm to follow in the next couple weeks. 🙂

    Anyone who wants to cut OSPIRG funding is a hottie in my book. Good luck, kids!

    Johnny looks like a douche bag and is from west linn. i am not so sure about him. sam gets my vote. what a hottie.

  3. Osprig sucks says:

    There has been a lot of talk about OSPRIG and the funding they get. Some friends of mine are running a campaign for ASUO exec and I am totally behind them. One reason is because they are going to substantially cut funding to osprig and use that money directly to subsidize textbooks at the UofO bookstore. Osprig gets way too much money, 120K next year! So you guys should look at my friends campaign, Johnny Delashaw, and Sam Dotters-Katz. I think they are putting up their website and facebook group sometime soon. You should support them for this reason, and because they aren’t just the same old bulshitters, check them out!

    The brilliant thing about fries is that they come with any number of sauces globbed on top. My favorite is the curry ketchup; it is sort of like currywurst sauce.

    I appreciate the retrospect. I try to imagine how much easier my life would have been if we would have taken that recess. But of course, Nate and Co. wanted to be sure no one had their feelings hurt. Feelings take precedence over many things in the ASUO; logic, reason, accountability, common sense to name a few.

    Brussels is great. I am going to go watch Night Rider in Dutch…yes, Night Rider is helping me learn Dutch.

    All haters will perish under the glorious regime of Jesse Hough, ASUO Exec 08-09. Take Back the Campus is just the beginning.

    Neil, how cool is it that Diego Hernandez is illegally serving as a senator and PFC member? Do you remember saying something along the lines of,

  7. Ossie says:

    So are there any slates running on the “None of the above” platform?

    Chinese people don’t have their own plans? Weird, you’d think that such an ancient and fairly successful culture would’ve made a few plans in its day. What about that Mao fellow, didn’t he make a few plans?

  9. make a plan! says:

    a liberal can make a plan

    A Chinese can steal a plan

    A Conservative is born with a plan

    Correction, I filed a grievance in September. Oh those were the days. I think I am going to write in Jacob Daniels, maybe thrid time’s the charm.

  11. Sean says:

    Bryan, I’ve decided to put it in the next issue.

  12. Bryan says:

    What happened to your 750+ word update? I was seriously disappointed when this post came up short, Sean.
