Why do the republicans want socialism?  Get some personal responsibility bootstraps up in there.  Let the free market freely provide money to you if you have something to offer for it.

Aaaaand we're done! Thanks man!

Thank god Townhall is keeping us informed on this very important schoolyard gossip.

Anarchists requesting funding for their group.  HA!

Gawd!  These entitled republicans just want one handout after another, don't they?

I ran the Men's Center in my college.  We got flack because out budget was higher than everyone else, but it was only because the guy before me was too lazy to pick up his stipend.

I ended up just hosting poker nights and trips to the shooting range with the women's and LGBT groups.

I was going to come in here and reluctantly post that they should get equal funding, and that if this happened to College Democrats we'd all be legitimately pissed off, but this response is SO much better.

Note how the article doesn't point out that they asked for way more money than either of the liberal groups cited.

Also, it's a shame there's no larger group the college Republicans could turn to to perhaps secure some funding - perhaps a grant of some kind, or maybe funding that hadn't been sequestered. Perhaps they could join a political party that encouraged the same sorts of things.

DamnYankees: Note how the article doesn't point out that they asked for way more money than either of the liberal groups cited.


True, the amount they were alloted was very similar to other groups, they just asked for a lot more.  The differences could also be due to memberships in the groups - groups with more members should get more funding.
 
2013-08-30 03:56:22 PM
Considering what their older brethren have done to education funding in North Carolina, I'd say 75% is a good start.

DamnYankees: Note how the article doesn't point out that they asked for way more money than either of the liberal groups cited.


It does, however, provide numbers; examination of which further indicate that they got significantly less than either of the liberal groups.

Now, I'd be utterly unsurprised if there's a good rationale for the funding decision. (Most likely, the Republicans screwing up the application due to feeling automatically entitled to funding as historically normal.) Contrariwise, I'd consider this topic more suited to local media like the Daily Tar Heel )UNC's student paper) rather than any national news orifice. Nohow, I'm not yet seeing anything from the DTH website on it.

I smell opportunity. They should do a fund raiser. Something like a bake sale. The UC Berkeley College Republicans could give them some tips on how to successfully pull one off.

Okay, first off; well-known? Maybe in your derp circle.

Secondly, conflict of interest much?  You're basically writing a slam piece in order to get a speaker's fee for a member of your staff, so fu*k you.

Thirdly, go cry about it. Your little toadies are getting about the same amount of money as other groups.

Fourthly,  bootstrap up, biatches.

It has been decided that the only way to help the college republican is to get them off the dole, and teach them to pull themselves up by their bootstraps.  They'll thank us afterward, for giving them the gift of self-reliance.

the Republicans were given $12,000 the previous year, according to TFA.
This  year they wanted $8,000. They got $3,000.

One group got $5,000 to publish a magazine.
One anarchist group got $4,000.

No indication of what those two groups received previously, but their combined $9,000 is still $3,000 less than the Publicans got last year.

Maybe it's just the other guys' turn this year.

Plus, maybe you shouldn't defund education so much.

The problem is that this group is made of  Rogue Republicans.  The rest of the NC party preaches that the answer to Chapel Hill is 'Build a wall around it and never enter".

I dunno, an anarchist group with a Facebook page? can't be all that radical.

From the UNControllables FB page.........
Description:
We are your local, UNC anarchists. We're also anti-authoritarians, anti-capitalists, and up-to-no-good do-gooders. We seek out a world without rulers and rules, where we can live freely without having to compete against each other. We seek out a movement of uncontrollable dreamers who don't believe in authority for its own sake. We want to seduce YOU.

Besides, given the behavior of members of Republican Party over the past few years, I submit the "anarchists" are the GOP themselves.

College I went to, any group that could get X number of signatures on a petition could get a little bit of funding automatically.  We had some interesting groups on that campus.

What's funny, is my Republican friends are also the first one who cry about lack of government services (at least for them). I had one friend biatching that they should increase hours on trolly lines until 2 am. When I had explained to him that they are cutting funding for things like schools and he is against any tax increases and ask him how would they pay for it, he did the ol' "That's just a ploy, they have lots of money they are just cutting it from important things to get back at us".

I ran a student group and never wanted any funding from the school, because I didn't want them nosing into our business.  I just paid for everything myself.  I tried pretty hard to get us an office, but there just wasn't space for it.  The group would probably still be going today if we had gotten one, probably for the best that it isn't.

I hear that shiat all the time from my conservative family members. Its farking mystifying to them that voting down tax increases and biatching about government spending can actually cut government spending.

On the other hand, i always observe liberals asking for more spending and whining about how terrible it is when spending is cut. But ask them to chip in a little bit by funding it with a VAT or sales tax increase and you are almost always met with indignation.

Apparently the programs aren't really that important if we aren't willing to pay for them!
