Endorsements & Ravings
Wow is all I can say....I was at an excellent SIFE party last night and will have one at my house soon...as my first paycheck will be coming in shortly....the beer at this party was amazing and I met a couple of people that read my blog....I was stunned!! The conversations were great and a very, very close friend of mine made comments that Jared would probably wind up being an ambulance-chaser attorney, I pointed to a magnetic sticker of this Begin dude (a ambulance chaser lawyer) and we laughed hard. I wonder if Pete or Tom have any beers in the fridge, I think I'll steal one. In any event, I worked eleven hours today and I'm told in three weeks I'll be in a management program...soon I'll be able to buy all the choice bodybuilding supplements...but really....who cares?
Alrighty then....I read a fantastic breakdown of the SG elections here: http://notanti-greekanti-system.blogspot.com/ , I give it five stars!!! If only Ken Kerns could write like this guy, you might be able to buy his publications at bookstores. I also sent a message to Adam Roberts yesterday morning just reminding him that even though I think he's a political mobster and that his party has sold out the independent community that I still think he's an ok guy (LMAO) and that this is purely politics. As usual he was very professional, I've never said anything to the contrary, he was very nice and offered me his number and really wanted me to call, which I didn't. One thing about me, is that calling would probably have been the best thing to do, maybe I am totally wrong, maybe I need to talk to him,....but ya know what....Ken Kerns, James Argento....these kids aren't Greek, they have no idea what goes on behind closed doors and with the support UNITE's got...I know better than to buy into the Dennis Ngin approach to politics. Dennis was an honest guy, a good guy....and they f*cked him. Now all of a sudden Adam's in charge, they're just as honest and taking a 1/3 of the Greek vote and running 40% athletes and they haven't made any deals they'd deny in the public eye....highly unlikely.
I see no one said anything on the Chris Chase interview....I guess people can't exactly say I'm using old info or ancient sources b/c Chris actually knows more than most of you, no offense, so I guess it boils down to choosing your battles =o) ... that was kinda the point;c). I gotta say that even though I've been trying to choose a side, I can't think of a good reason. I do love those Impact shirts....I use them to work out and the name sounds great, but even though I could use a few extra free shirts, I don't really want them so badly that I'd support either Swamp or Unite, I'd actually rather be an inmate at Camp X-ray in Gitmo and be subjected to brutal torture involving sleep deprivation and DieHard Gold batteries and mattress racks than support either mainstream party. Sorry. I do believe the most competent person fielding for exec is Lydia Washington, however.
For the presidency I would like to declare myself NEUTRAL (I think the best vote the students could cast between Boyles & Hernandez is scribble in this phrase: "NO CONFIDENCE") However, I do think Lydia Washington is an amazing candidate, so if ur ok with voting for presidential candidate based solely on his choice for veep, then I guess you could have a party to vote for, but I wouldn't vote for the chief executive based on his #2. I would however like to officially endorse Susan Vas Henriques for Student Body TREASURER.
I got Lola into Senate not James Argento, I have the emails and I also have a micro-cassette tape with people I can't mention where I outlined what I'd do to the Fall-2004-sellout-Access if the 4 Voice candidates were not put on the slate. As I've said before....I chose Lola, Fernando Nin chose Analiz Velasques, and Kathy Valle chose Ansell Fernandez....Danny Martinez' pick bowed out for personal reasons. Argento has no claim to Lola being brought into SG, she was an Accion/Voice pick, that's it! However, Lola went Gator and I have no respect for people that sell out, even if to extend their SG careers....for shame!! LOL (Extending your SG career isn't moral ground to sell ur ass for crack rock...LOL) So, once you go Gator, Innovate, Ignite, whatever and you wanna come later, you'll find that the locks have changed. If UNITE weren't so far mainstream I'd apply the same principle to Boyles, but UNITE have out-mainstreamed SWAMP, who'dda thought that was possible? Not I.
I won't go into detail on endorsements for senate, but I will for my old College...I will be pushing for Gavin Baker and his four colleagues to get elected. Gavin Baker reminds me so much of myself, he has his own .com like I did when I ran, he goes to org meetings and fights for his party like I did, he works for his senate seat like Jared works for this presidency...Gavin Baker is not a bozo milking his letters and he's not a jock, he's also not lame or stupid looking like many of the pencil neck dweebes that haunt indie parties are...he's a GDI because he's chosen to be one, not because of circumstance...and I believe a vote for him and his four colleagues is in the best interest of ALL LS students. Gavin Baker will definitely fight for you, so please give him & the UNITE senate candidates your support in Liberal Arts & Sciences.
