a lady outside just told me “Elizabeth Taylor is a medusa”
She also said “I’m a medusa and married to Jim Morrison”, “Can you spare a cigarette”, “I used to be a police officer but felt stupid so I quit” and ended with class by screaming “Buncha Santa Cruz N******, I ain’t afraid of you”
This just in: Disaffected impetuous college kids of privilege will protest inequality something or rather tomorrow at UCSC. Plan for delays on the West side.
When did Fuck Yeah Santa Cruz turn into Fox & Friends featuring Instagrammed pictures…
Seriously, FYSC? Ok, I get it. You are a “cool local,” but honestly what the fuck. Student activists make up a part of your audience…
Delays on the west side? It’s one day. Don’t get your panties in a bunch.. What I am worried about is the imminent “clusterfuck” of STUDENT LOAN DEBT in this country that is now larger than individual credit card debt. So yes, I will be at the protest bright and early tomorrow, because I do everything I can to perpetuate my RIGHT (not privilege) to pursue an education. And shame on you for using “inequality” like it’s a dirty word.
I could go on forever about this but I’ll stop here.
I’m not cool or a local. I’m just a man who’s been here for 11 years. And I’m UCSC alumni. I didn’t like the protests then and I still don’t now. Again, I sympathize with the current fucked state of the system, but denying others of their right to learn or work is bogus.
What about the right for other people to attend class without protesters getting in their way? Classes that are already paid for, mind you. You think it’s fair for your agenda to fuck with their education? What about the folks who just want to get to their job on campus? ”One day” may not mean much when you’re a student, but a day of lost work either academic or professional sucks. Maybe you’ll understand that more when you work to live. The regents don’t give a fuck about your protest. And it’s not accomplishing anything. Every year it’s the same god damn protest but with a different cause that never proves anything except how annoying a small group of people can be.
