Sudsy Wants You to Join the Oregon Commentator

Introducing SudSquatch

We may have damaged livers, but not damaged hearts. In partnership with the American Red Cross the Oregon Commentator is proud to present SudSquatch. All proceeds for the event will be donated to the Haiti reconstruction effort and low income families in Eugene that have been affected by flood or fire damage.

It only cost five dollars to spend a lovely Friday afternoon jamming out to Indubious and Sea Bell on the EMU lawn.  You can even charge it to your student account!

    You know what we should do about Haiti?

    Nuke it from orbit. It is the only way to be sure.

  2. Andrew says:


    there’s a pretty significant difference between the Commentator’s advocacy of conservative I fee spending and social relief for Haiti. Last time I checked thousands of I fee funded groups were not dying from starvation. But you know, details and that whole thing.

  3. Java says:

    Free market capitalism is the single most effective generator of jobs and wealth. Capitalism with a conscience uses some of that wealth both freely given and as taxes to maintain the infrastructure of the system. Whether because of altruism or an understanding that a healthy society is insurance against revolution or collapse, some commitment has to be made to fair taxation – likewise its just distribution. That seems to require individuals of character.

    Once I have to spell the word socialism, my my keyboard gets a little jittery.

    Cims, are you being facetious, or are you really that dense? I know this might be a hard distinction for you to wrap your head around, but we don’t oppose voluntary acts of charity. We oppose the government forcing people to be charitable through taxation.

    So are you an anti-statist or do you support a huge, tax-happy central government? You don’t seem very consistent.

  5. Cims G says:

    When did you all start caring!!! I thought you advocated apathy!

    I am glad you are doing this, but it seems inconsistent with your platform- Doesn’t this go against the whole no-taxes, everybody for themselves, personal responsibility, free market thing you’ve been touting. This seems like a good benefit, so good luck.

    But I would have figured you would advocate something like:

    ‘it’s the responsibility of haitians to pull them selves up from poverty,
    or this would be a hand out and is going to encourage all those lazy Haitians to get more handouts.’
