From the River to the UC

March 30, 2010

It’ s old news, but people are now gearing up to override the veto.

To recap, a bill passed the ASUC Senate urging divestment from companies that allegedly supplied Israel with the materials to bomb Gaza, and was vetoed by ASUC President Will Smelko during the spring recess.

Here is the article about the passage of the bill.

Here is the article about its veto.

Here is a toxic and hysterical editorial celebrating the veto. Here is a less toxic, though even more hysterical editorial condemning the veto.

Here is a new article with more updates.

My thoughts:

I am not terribly excited about my student government grand-standing over foreign policy issues, particularly when they can’t seem to manage their affairs at home. But…

Here’s a quote from the pro-veto editorial:

The measure attacks Israel, an open democratic society that has long been a close American ally. Its government is elected and subject to the rule of law. Its judiciary is independent; its military is under civilian authority; and its press is free.

On the other hand, the measures favor Hamas, an extreme Islamic group that expelled the opposing Fatah party in Gaza by force after winning a 2006 Palestinian election. (Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005.) The rulers of Gaza offer no protection under law, no independent judiciary and no free press.

They permit no opposition. Rather than building a civil society, they launched a rocket war against innocent Israeli civilians from behind schools, hospitals, mosques and government agencies, using their own residents as human shields. Yet, the bill holds them blameless for the Palestinian plight. That the supporters of this action singled out Israel for rebuke while ignoring the fanatical regime in Gaza suggests that their agenda is political not ethical.

And here is a graph!

weeaboo

I know it’s been literally an entire semester since I’ve posted a Weeaboo Wednesday, but look, I actually don’t know that much about Japan. I guess I could have kept reviewing weird hentai that I “accidentally” came upon, but I am pretty tired of getting hits from search terms like “world of warcraft tentacle” and “kkids fucking”.

In any case, I HAVE SOMETHING TO SHARE WITH YOU, SOMETHING ABOUT ANIMES!! CLICK HERE FOR JAPAN BOINIC BOOBS SKUNK FU HENTAI TENTICLE

For some reason it is hard to find the full set of Feed the Animals videos, but THE INTERWEB CANNOT FOOL THE ELITE SQLOG CORPS. Here is the full set, taken from several different sets of uploads– hopefully the intranet po-po won’t get up on this shit. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14

Yeah, seriously, fuck Weezer.

Hippo Time!!!

  • The Washington Post is dead: “The good news is that religious conservatives continue to breed like rabbits, while secular saboteurs have shut down: they’re too busy walking their dogs, going to bathhouses and aborting their kids. Time, it seems, is on the side of the angels.”

*”That’s the creepiest thing I’ve ever heard of.” – Brian Harvey, from a totally legit source, bro!

Hey, and if any of you non-porn-surfing readers still care about Iran (or ever cared), the Iranian Student Alliance in America (what a mouthful) is holding a rally at 12 on Thursday, on Sproul Plaza (of course). Other happenings that day:

2-3:30 – Tilden Room, MLK Student Union, 5th floor – Panel Discussion with Dr. Arash Naraghi and Omid Memarian

6:30-9 – Chevron Auditorium, I-House – Documentary screening (subject matter: the June election), Theatrical Performance, Panel Discussion with Dr. Nayereh Tohidi, Reese Erlich, and Alireza Eshraghi

9-10 – Sproul Plaza – Social Justice Week Candlelight Vigil

These are some really interesting people they’ve snagged for the event, so if you were glued to your screen during the Week that Twitter Did Something Useful (… like I was…), you might want to check this out. That said, if you were glued to your screen during the Week that Twitter Did Something Useful, like I was, you are probably also a pale, fragile shut-in who can’t stand being around so many yelly people.

Haha just kidding I am totally awesome and cool I AM NOTHING LIKE THAT

  • America definitely not founded by secularist humanists, but by Judeo-christian* artists with poor Flash skills. (* And by Judeo-christian, we all know I mean Judeo-christian.)

“If the goal of the furlough program is savings to the general fund, I think our conclusion is quite clear that this program is poorly designed,” said Ken Jacobs, chairman of the Center for Labor Research and Education at UC Berkeley, which conducted the study.

“Also, I just got a better offer over at Tulane. See ya!” Jacobs added. He swiftly turned on his heel, hoping to make a quick getaway, only to find that the exit to the University was now crowded with a veritable legion of quality academics, all of whom had received more appealing job offers at private universities.

The line was moving quite slowly, and he was beginning to tire of the smell of tweed and Camembert. A younger professor, his youthful eyes yet retaining a spark of eagerness, turned to Jacobs. “I think I will miss this place.”

“Eh,” said Jacobs.

The episode that transfixed the nation last week — a spaceship-like balloon floating through the Colorado skies with a 6-year-old boy named Falcon believed to be inside — was declared “a hoax” by the Larimer County sheriff’s office on Sunday.

“It has been determined that this is a hoax, that it was a publicity stunt,” the Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden said at a news conference in Fort Collins, Colo., one day after re-interviewing members of the now-famous Heene family about the case. “We have evidence to indicate it was a publicity stunt done with the hope of marketing themselves to a reality television show sometime in the future.”

[…]

Richard Heene and his wife have been enmeshed for years in the culture of reality television and self-promotional Web postings. The family appeared twice on the ABC show “Wife Swap,” including as recently as last March. Mr. Heene wanted his own show about his family, and he had worked with at least one production company on a proposal. On Friday the cable channel TLC said it had turned down the proposal months ago. He has posted YouTube videos claiming to show proof of life on Mars, asking whether Hillary Rodham Clinton is a “reptilian.”
