Limited Scope

In a guest commentary in the ODE, Cimmeron Gillespie railed against fiscal conservatism as a means to amplify the current funding issues of sexual abuse programs here at the UO.

Of course, this is all very well and good, if it weren’t for gems we’ve been expecting to hear from Gillespie for some time like, “The election of any group who calls for increased scrutiny of the incidental fee or ASUO funds doesn’t understand that there is already huge bureaucracy and oversight.”

The rest of Gillespie’s column goes on as a thinly veiled attack against Alex McCafferty’s presidential bid. Of course, McCafferty has been chair of the ACFC twice and Senate president, meaning he fully understands the ASUO funding process. Or rather, “he speaks with some authority.”

In a conversation with former OC publisher Guy Simmons, he told me this, “You know why this magazine–a conservative voice–is the most popular magazine on this liberal campus? Because everyone thinks governmental waste is bad. Period.”

Well, everyone except for one member of the “anarchist collective”.

    Team CamRod just can’t come up with a decent argument.

    Cameron sounds bitter he has no friends (frowny face)

  3. Larry Hill says:

    This article did not refute anything because most people who read the Commentator already know the refutation by heart. If you are really dying to know what every Commentator reader was thinking, go ahead and read my letter to the editor in the Emerald today:

  4. Cameron says:

    I like how this article refutes nothing and just continues the immature slander the commentator is so known for. It is entertaining from time to time though for that very reason, I’d say that that is probably why you see yourselfs as being so “popular”. lmao. Whatever crackpots.

  5. Former Dummy says:

    People need to remember that it was Emily Mclain that reduced funding to SASS, and she was right to do so. I disagree with her a lot, but she went after that contract because it WAS duplicative services between SASS and the Health Center.
