That Takes Guts!


We often talk about people being brave and usually look over to our service personnel in Iraq & Afghanistan as primary examples - and they are, rest assured. But there's other examples of bravery, courageous people that are determined to living their lives 'by any means necessary' (TY Comrade Malcom).

I was at this awesome alternative diner last night and saw a really awesome looking person. I wasn't sure if he was a dragqueen (stylistic persuasion) or Trans (a bonafide gender identity) person. What I was sure about is that this person was alive, vibrant, and having a blast with friends.

Before leaving I bought a slice of cherry pie, with whipped cream, a la mode and walked over to their table. "You look awesome," I began and handed my present over. She was so happy and touched that she got up and gave me a huge hug. I'm guessing she was around 6'2 or so and had 6" heels, so she actually towered over me, lol.

She insisted we exchange numbers and said that what I had done was the sweetest thing anyone had ever done for her. I told her she deserved it and left.

I met a really nice person that loved life and lived on her own terms and you should all know, there's no other way that's worth living.

Progess/O&B deal? Fuck that shit, you should be talking about the Unite/Keg deal. That will blow your mind.

The use of the English language on the Progress page is EMBARRASSING to all Gators.

Simmons obviously had no part in this...

Ben Dictor is my heroz for sticking that in my about mez.

Will said...

Christian,

How can you support Benjamin Dictor when he asserts that O&B espouses online voting in its platform but the leadership does nothing about it.

You are fully aware that Jardon and Sam worked with Joe Little to ask the courts for a writ of mandamus compelling UF to allow online voting.

That case is still in the system.

So I ask this: Why do you think Ben Dictor is truthful about anything else he claims?

Maybe you have a reason and I would at least like to hear it.

Christian Duque said...

I'm thinking they'll be waiting a long time, as this would clearly fall in the category of political question.

Without getting to entangled in a legal argument, let me remind you that even within the Indie community, online voting remains divisive.

francisco said...

Um yeah, you do realize that the Court just ordered that UF turn over its initial Brief and Records at the beginning of this week right??? This case is moving forward like a bat out of hell. The hearings might just start around graduation time, giving us old geezers plenty of time to sit in the peanut gallery and watch the case progress as the summer begins.

Will said...

Christian,

That reply is entirely non responsive

Let's recap what happened. The Progress Party and Orange & Blue Party both announced they supported online voting. Ben Dictor then appeared in a Progress Party video saying that unlike some other parties, Progress Party will fight for online voting instead of just putting it on their platform.

Again, please explain why you support someone who is that willing to distort the truth?

The political question doctrine apply. Please read http://www.solveuf.com/8thJudicialCircuitOrdertoDismiss.pdf you should find it interesting.

An absolutely unmitigated victory for the Orange & Blue executive candidates tonight at the debate.

Second place goes to the awesome job the debate moderator did!!!

Third place to Frank Walch of the Keg Party.

And there were some other people up on the dais as well... but they were unimpressive and completely forgettable.

If you think O&B won at the debate then you're living in a dream world. Brandon sounded like a fool the entire time, just bashing JJ, until JJ shut him up in his closing to the sounds of laughter in the entire room, including from his own party. McShera looked/sounded disheveled and came off as his douchy self. I liked Stacey, that's about it. In fact, all the Treasurer candidates sucked at the debate.

Tommy Jardon said...

Since I've remained largely silent on this issue and have refrained from even reading this site the past few months, I feel it necessary to briefly address something.

I remember when Online Voting first re-entered the Indie consciousness in the Summer of 2004. So does Christian - we were both on the same committee. Since then the fight to bring Online Voting to this campus has had many soldiers spend countless hours either collecting signatures or arguing before one kangaroo court or the next.

NO ONE ever had the temerity to do what Sam and the Progress 2.0 kids did. I only (belatedly) wrote the language. They collected the almost 6,000(!) signatures to place the constitutional amendment on the ballot.

Now, I was at those meetings, too. And Ben Dictor promised to lend his minions to the endeavor. I think they collected even fewer signatures than I did. For him to now claim the Online Voting mantle, exclusively, is the highest form of narcissistic blubbery I've ever seen on the Indie side of things since, well, Josh Simmons pretended to lose his virginity.

Can we discuss how O&B (running Brandon White) and Unite (running Larnell Vickers and individuals directly involved in BSU) may effectively split the Black community. Though it is ambitious for White to step out on his own, he will, in essence lose and be shunned by SG in his last year. That is not smart for a person interested in FBK and other SG-related positions. His fraternity and supporters will suffer in future years.

Your tone, Anon 1:18 AM, makes you a weak and pathetic human being. It's garbage like you that I hope to keep from ever holding public office.

People like you make MLK roll in his grave and make his death seem in vain.

Good to see haha89 has found TR in addition to The Alligator. Your special brand of being a completely hopeless idiot and blind tool will bring much giggling to the intelligentsia that reads this site.

Anonymous said...

@1:18 you must not know Brandon if you think he's interested in FBK.

Anonymous said...

Brandon isn't interested in FBK, his community attempted to force him to apply this past semester and he refused.

Anonymous said...

Now, Tommy. We know you're bitter that Simmons got to sleep in the same apartment as Ben Grove for two years and you didn't, and it's completely understandable that you're a little touchy about your recent weight gain, but let's be realistic.

No one is desperate enough to lie about losing their virginity to Caitlin Clause.

Anonymous said...

STFU, 1:18. Brandon White is a boldfaced liar and opportunist. BSU kids don't like him-the best split you can hope for is 90-10, especially since BSU has like a million fucking kids on the Unite slate.

don't be an idiot and drink the o&b koolaid.

No way that is really JCB...

Of course that is JCB.

Anon 8:38, Glad I've made a name for myself, sorry I don't find it easy as you do to blindly follow indie idealism. It's okay, though, instead of arguing a point, you'll be satisfied calling me names to hide the fact that you're incredibly lost. Then we both win.

Will said...

"Will", how the HELL would you know...last I remember you were bickering at each other in court room over that whole stickers thing...people can post under any name here...just look at what happened to Brandon...I don't know you but my point is just that people on here can hide behind their computer screen like a coward and all they do is hurt people...they should be careful...

See...
