On the First Day Before Christmas…
By: Barry Belmont

…one powerless student body… And an ASUN…in a tree? In a bind? In…uh…different? Yeah. Indifferent. How often do you think about the ASUN? Well, if you aren’t a crotchity Student for Liberty, an anonymous watchwolf group, a “secret society” existing solely for the betterment of UNR whose members are variously named Deeds, Chinook, Schlitzes, Smalls, Butters, [...]

On the Second Day Before Christmas…
By: John Russell

… 2 maids a’ milkin’ … I would like to bluntly describe a big problem within the ASUN bureaucracy – they try to care but end up hurting the very people they intend to help. They have sticky notes all around their offices, some even going so far as saying “Goal: visit every club’s meeting [...]

On The Third Day Before Christmas…
By: Barry Belmont

…three little internet bloggers blogged about me… If you get nothing else out of this article, understand this: The middle ground is the refuge of the incompetent. The constant compromise of two mutually exclusive positions produces a monstrously lackluster philosophy which no one in their heart of hearts actually finds satisfying. “I won’t pretend to believe [...]

On the Fourth Day Before Christmas…

… four funding tiers for me … An ASUN Poem I went to ASUN one day, To see what we could collect for pay, Food n’ fliers n’ tickets galore, Each budget meeting has more and more, Available to those who know the way. This money does not belong to me, And neither does it [...]

On The Fifth Day Before Christmas…
By: Barry Belmont

…Five (plus) Thousand Dollars… …For CATERING!… So why exactly did we request so much money for such stupid things? Why did we want funds for things we feel the club commission has no right funding? How did we get about $1,000 to bring an anarchist on campus? How did we get catered? How did we [...]

On the Sixth Day Before Christmas…
By: Mary Hunton

…the commission said to me six little words… And what were those six little words, you may ask? “Sure, you can have ASUN money!” Though I understand what the commission aims to do (after all, clubs do need funding to function properly, do they not?) the inherent flaw in the system is making it far [...]

On the Seventh Day Before Christmas…
By: John Russell

… Joint Vision 2017 was delayed … For those of you who are unaware, the bureaucrats in the ASUN offices tried doubling your student fees this semester in order to try and justify their existence. Even though they used super duper impressive slogans like action plans, joint visions, work groups, student input, evolving campus culture, [...]

On the Eighth Day Before Christmas…
By: Barry Belmont

…eight commissioners once said to me… So they didn’t listen to John’s suggestions, what did they listen to? Judging by their raising of the funding limits, the addition of a new tier, an extra veneer of murkiness in their rulings (albeit coupled with highly specific additions: “No ammunition”), and the  fiscal reserve of a sailor [...]

On the Ninth Day Before Christmas…
By: John Russell

… nine funding caps compelled me … When I was referred once again to another edition of the CK brah’s literary masterpiece from the VisLupis kiddies, I was ecstatic and dumfounded. Ecstatic in the fact that the inherent problems of ASUN are being illustrated through our newest campaign of showing people how terrible it is, [...]

On the Tenth Day Before Christmas…
By: Barry Belmont

…ten brosefs chest bumped me… You know you’re doing something right when the VisLupiKids and the CoffinAndKeyR-Tards are saying you’re doing something wrong. Recently, both groups highlighted the fact that funding from the ASUN is ridiculous.The CaKDudes agreed with Patrick Delaplain, Director of Clubs Stuff,when he referred to “our current club funding policies a ‘club [...]
