Ich?

I didn't see that coming:
Despite elections season partisanship, former president Manuel Buenrostro said the president must rise above party politics to achieve success.

"To get things done, I really tried to avoid party politics," Buenrostro said. "A successful president needs to be someone who is willing to listen to students and people who disagree with them."
For those of you who missed it, Manny was the one who issued an executive order declaring his party the winner of an election and declaring an entire branch of government invalid.

also note that van nguyen is talking about unity and including all student voices when he has taken more actions than anyone to divide students...
 
sweet, sweet irony.
 
well, I did not declare my party the winner when they had already won the election (so dont give me that much credit).

And what I said was true, the most important things that get done are done when we avoid party politics. Unfortunately, you disagree with what I would consider some of these things, such as an MCC, the Recreational Sports Referendum, and the Graduate Assembly MOU.

Now, I would love to have a deeper conversation about student fees because there have been certainly a lot of fee proposals recently that I deeply disagree with. You forget that during my year we fought and stopped a faulty proposal that would have had students paying for a lease on a Career Center.

why do regular students give a shit about the MCC? honestly.

i can understand why DAAP cares. But why would student action care?

what the fuck benfit will it bring. It's really stupid.
 
What benefit will it bring? It is an open place for student to voice their concerns and put on multicultural events that are open to the whole campus.

And why does Student Action care? Well there are plenty of Student Action members that come from diverse backgrounds. I see the MCC as a place for students to interact and share their cultures and it brings more value to this campus than a simple lounge (which the ASUC provides already).

I am wondering what makes you so uncomftable about having an MCC on campus?

-Manny
 
Sproul Plaza serves as that space, too. I don't buy that you need a special building for voicing a specific set of concerns and throwing a specific type of event.

The MCC isn't free, so cut your "uncomfortable" shit, Manny. Did every event you not throw not get thrown because you were "uncomfortable" with it?

I'm sorry you don't think that when you declared "that Oren Gabriel, Vishal Gupta, Joyce Liou, and Jason Chu immediately assume their executive roles" before the election was certified (and, while they were disqualified, for that matter) isn't declaring the winner, but dude, no one buys it.
 
"It is an open place for student to voice their concerns and put on multicultural events that are open to the whole campus."

Why not just have more general ASUC space. Why do you have to call something a multicultural center? Doesn't that kind of limit what it can be?

" And why does Student Action care? Well there are plenty of Student Action members that come from diverse backgrounds."

It's bullshit that because someone comes from a "diverse" background that they need a multicultural center.

I really think the whole thing is a joke. It's just one more piece of the pie for people who want to repel prop 209.

most students on campus don't give a shit. It's nuts that the asuc has its balls wrapped around it.
