Congratulations Progress Party!


After another system triumph, the murky feeling of another army of robots ready to get sworn in, to perpetuate FBK's stranglehold on SG and the Greek agenda, still makes me nauseous, still saddens me well into my alumni years. How democratic is it for a party to win 44 out of 47 seats? Any country in the world where that happens and people would cry dictatorship! It's just un-natural for any single group to have that kind of popularity. But it's not about popularity, it's about big money and block voting. Mindless, brainwashed up-and-comers hoping to get that FBK lapel, it's about mobster-in-the-making smoking their Pedro Allende rolled cigars, and cultural Judases boasting over the thirty pieces of silver the machine underpaid for its minorities - naturally..who pays minorities anything but dirt in America?

One seat...Progress '05 / Voice '05...one seat...Student Alliance '03 in the face of an Ignite sweep! One seat is resistance, one seat is resolve, one single seat means they have to work, even if they have more of everything, they still lack the one universal ingredient that only GDI's possess -- that's HEART! Break down however you wish, but HEART, keeps the good guys fighting despite hardly ever (1:10-15yrs) getting rewarded by victory. For Accesss to have won it meant many Progresses and Voices and, Student Alliances to earn less votes in elections past.

Tommy Jardon returned to the fold, that's a victory. One can only hope he will serve an architect of a spring party, one can only hope he may in fact run for Student Body President. Many new names are coming into their own...I hope to see more of Frank Bracco and Sam and the others. I hope to see Will Foster remain in a spring Progress fold, but I also would like to see more women emerge from the Independent movment, more cultural minorities. Let Gator, Swamp, the OYB Party, the Gator Stomp Party w/e new name they use to rally school spirit in a cheap way to get elected, let them get drunk with power and smoke their lungs away.

Even with a tasering that made worldwide news, that put UF in shame, even that they can strategically downplay. They are gifted in staying in power, they've been doing so at UF for decades...this has been going on longer than many of us are alive, even before our parents, and some even grandparents! The Machine takes a Ryan Moseley, (remember that classic NINA quote), and then throws him away.

To SGO:

If you are going to pull a hacking stunt, please realize you are using Google's Blogger as your CMS. Putting up an old school "hacked by" page makes no sense and using a blogger widget ( http://www.blogger.com/widgets/2927639132-widgets.js ) doesn't help your case.

We realize Ryan Day and Gator was spanked in the elections commission but you should have been watching the cocks vs UK game instead of planning this retarded stunt.

Thanks,
Will

Should we start commenting here since SGO got hacked?

Will-

Don't make assumptions. Ryan was out with friends, and if he's going to hack something he'll at last use proper grammar.

Well we can just comment here since SGO was only good because of the comment threads!

So Will you don't want to take me in front of the Honor Court anymore?

will said...

I dare you Ryan. Take me before the honor court for believing it was Gator posers who ran SGO. We'll trash you for your horrible reading comprehension.

Ryan, sweetie, you need to stop throwing around accusations and threats. Will was dealing with the fact that his apartment was turning into a pond while you were out with your friends. If you actually took the time to read Will's comment, you would realize that he wasn't accusing you at all... He was accusing SGO. I hope you aren't planning on taking the LSAT any time soon. Your reading comprehension sucks. So get off your high horse and calm the fuck down. Thanks.

Guys, I love chicken fried rice!

Cannot we all get along? I think we should schedule a meeting at Gator Dining when they are having chicken fried rice (or corn dogs, because I love corn dogs...and grilled cheese too!) to discuss this semester's election results, the election commission, how to improve voter turnout and interest, and what methods of voting should be allowed.

Well anyways, it is pledge week, so I am off to the radio station...on that note:

PSA: Don't forget to support WUFT (89.1) and WJUF (90.1) as we celebrate 26 years on air bringing North Central Florida the best in public radio. Your donations can help keep great programming on air including "The Night Bridge" (a program I host) and "Nothin' But the Blues" (a show I produce and host). Check out http:/www.wuftfm.org for more info :).

Way to tell none of you will EVER do real politics at any level higher than grassroots...

(See random bitchy comments above)

You act as if grassroots is bad? Not everyone wants to work inside an elitist system. Sometimes you have to think outside the box to engage the average individual. There is something to be said when regular turn out does even break 20 percent in many local elections.

Looks like the end of SG blogging now the SGO is down and is only for registered readers. Can someone please start a blog with actually news?

Anon 3:41 PM: WRONG! You do realize that most of the people that have posted thusfar already have experience in local, state, and even national politics. Partisan, non-partisan, and business interests are all represented above by the various authors. How about yourself, have you done anything besides live off someone else's money and pretend to have worked outside of politics at UF?

Anonymous said...

3:41: Two of those posters have already worked above the "grassroots" level. Why haven't you?

Is 3:41 ADC? She has no room to speak.
