The War on Fun
Old people hate it when kids drink.
Why? Probably these old people are jealous because beer pong didn’t exist when they were kids in college. And why didn’t beer pong exist when the old people were in college? Lack of imagination? Free time was spent in church? Fire hadn’t been invented yet? Who knows. Who cares. All I know is that the old people need to get over it.
Let me be clear, college kids tweak me off as well. Not only do I live in a college town, I work on a college campus and I live in riot central. I’ve biked to work past the burnt couches in the street.
But, the scenery is great. For those of you who are slow, I mean the girls.
College kids are young, stupid, ambitions, naive, idealistic. That’s why the Obama movement is focusing on them. Let ’em have their fun. In 4 to 6 years they are gonna be in a cubical farm pushing paper so the CEO can get rich. Their daily dose of fantasy will be telling the boss to take this job and shove it. Then they will go home to loud kids, a spouse they don’t like and dog shit all over the yard and fantasize about blowing their brains out.
So let ’em have some fun.
But no. The colleges aren’t going to allow that it seems. If there is anything colleges hate, it’s people having fun. Yes, and free speech too. And marijuana. And Republicans. And naturally, libertarians.
Anyhow, get a load of this:
Let’s examine some passages from this article.
University of Washington police work with Seattle officers to patrol the area north of campus thick with off-campus housing including fraternities and sororities. Boston College goes further by sending a college official off campus to look for parties and students breaking the law.
Boston College is sending a “college official” out amongst the city to actively look for students breaking the law? What the fuck? Is this “official” a police office?
An assistant dean of students at Seattle University does something similar via the Internet. A number of parties were shut down this past year after Glen Butterworth spied a page on Facebook publicizing the events. The private university has put its students on notice that cyber-patrolling will continue this year.
This kids is why you keep your stupidity off the internet. However, are you people comfortable living in a society where some ass hole who works for the college you attends can tell you what to do on your time when you are not on college campus? Where are all the feminazis with their cries of “stay out of my vagina!” Apparently it’s okay to be up in their lives, yards and homes. Just stay out of the vagina. As if anyone would want to be in a feminazi vagina . . .
Some universities take their discipline policies a step further. At Duke University, the campus code requires students to report misbehavior by their fellow students to campus officials, no matter where the students find themselves.
Now you gotta love this. The “campus code” (what the fuck is that?) “requires students to report misbehaviour by their fellow students”. What the fucking fuck! Students are required to spy on each other? What happens if you don’t turn in another student for “misbehaviour”. And what constitutes misbehaviour? This what what the young people also known as “the future of America” are being taught? What kind of nation are they going to create? You think things are fucked up now, wait until these stupid little indoctrinated bastards are in positions of power. Bend over, here it comes.
But wait, here’s another one:
How ’bout these
The University of Florida is poised to ban drinking games, marking the latest in a series of crackdowns on the kind of booze-infused tomfoolery that’s long been a staple of college life.
Under newly proposed regulations, Florida students — on or off the campus — would be prohibited from “excessive rapid consumption” of alcohol. The policy specifically bars “drinking games,” as well as “alcohol luges,” which are carved ice blocks that serve as frozen pathways for liquor shots.
Patricia Telles-Irvin, Florida’s vice president for student affairs, said the university’s existing regulations were already designed to curb binge drinking. The proposed changes, however, are meant to target specific high-risk drinking activities, she said.
The regulations also forbid keg standing, an acrobatic drinking feat where students are inverted over a keg, with legs held aloft, as they guzzle straight from a tap.
Do I have to explain what is wrong with this? Are you people really that stupid? Oh wait, yes you are. The U of Florida is going to prohibit “excessive rapid consumption” of alcohol off campus. Not only are they
“This generation really wants us to be more specific, and we’re trying to be as clear as possible about what we mean,” Telles-Irvin said.
Let me translate this for you. “This generation is composed of a bunch of stupid sheep who will allow us to shit in their faces and take away more and more of their freedom,” Telles-Irvin said. And how about Telles-Irvin. A hyphenated last name. Fucking feminazi. Don’t get in her vagina, but she is going to get all up in your personal business. Oh but wait, you’re a sheep. You don’t care. You’re too stupid to care.
Florida isn’t alone. As Time magazine reported last month, drinking games have been banned at the University of Pennsylvania, Yale University, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and Tufts University.
Craig Thompson, president of Florida’s Interfraternity Council, said he’s “skeptical” of the proposed regulations. While Thompson says he supports efforts to curb binge drinking, he’s worried about administrators poking into the personal lives of students, even if the university is well intentioned.
“Right now my concern is that if there’s going to be regulation that it’s going to be policeable, and they’re not just adding rules to add rules,” said Thompson, who is 22.
The university already bans fraternities and sororities from having kegs in their houses, but the new keg ban and other regulations would apply to students living off the campus as well. Telles-Irvin, however, says she’s not going to become a modern-day Eliot Ness, knocking down doors to bust up beer pong games.
“We’re not going to be policing anybody,” she said. “I can assure you of that.”
It’s nice to see that someone is worried about administrators infringing on personal freedom. But how ’bout “We’re not going to be policing anybody”? Does anyone believe that shit? Of course they are going to police people. Otherwise what is the point of making the regulation? And they will have to investigate what students are doing in their own homes, otherwise there is no way to know if the regulation is being violated.
Think about this. King George II comes on TV and says “The federal government is going to make it illegal to read any book not approved by the Republican Party of the United States. But we are not going to be policing anybody.” Would you fall for that? If you are a college student maybe you would?
Of course maybe I shouldn’t get so worked up over this. After all I have long maintained that the stupid people are deserving of slavery. Who am I to stop the sheep from taking one more step in the wrong direction?
