I'm going to have my moment of intolerance, and nobody will take it from me. I'd like to say that 'Adam Perry' is exactly the kind of name you'd expect a student body president to have. It's just so generic, milquetoast whitebread palatable. Non-ethnic nonthreatening glad-handing brown-nosing baby-kissing suck-up name. Look for him at your next bourbon-swilling filet-mignon-eating honkey-herd $5000 a plate GOPAC fundraiser. Ask for him by name! 'The Generic One'&trade

I've never met a member of student government who wasn't a weasel in training. That's what student government is for: grooming tomorrow's self-righteous, self-entitled loads. Learn how to check your already withered conscience at the door, sell out your constituents to business interests, gerrymander districts, maintain deniability while slinging mud, patronize the little people, and more!

Funny, this is almost the exact same wording as the oath an enlisted member takes. I kind of thought that there would be something in there about command or something, but no, the only difference is the phrase "that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion."

As much of an asshole as I am -- and I am -- about politics, I still see nothing wrong with either oath.

Oh, I think my favorite part of the article is:
During the meeting, Zetts proposed Bill No. 56, which would set up a commission to “review student organization membership criteria established by the Student Government Association to determine if those requirements are being upheld.”

It's like, "Oh, 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' is discriminatory? Oh, well, we'll just change the definition of discrimination to make it okay then."

Oops.... the part I was thinking of was the next part, "This commission would also report on whether SGA should change or remove the discrimination policy."
