The Case for ASUN Discrimination
By: Barry Belmont

This comes from a comment by “Alpha Wolf” and spells out, quite clearly, the issues involved in the denial of Abolish ASUN as a club (and the approval of the other three that night). Go ahead and slap Plaintiffs v. ASUN at the top of this and print it off on some nice manuscript paper [...]

What’s the Purpose of the ASUN Again?
By: Barry Belmont

While we’re on the whole subject of the ASUN, I’d like to note that it is often easy to see the ways by which people work around their presupposed beliefs about the ASUN. When you get right down to brass tack, this is not all the different from the ways defend the particular religion they [...]

A Knife, Peas, and Justice
By: Barry Belmont

Imagine an organization were in charge of ensuring that those who ate at designated tables did so safely. The purpose behind their existence is to keep those eating safe, and also to have all of those around them free from harm. A laudable goal. You can even name this organization the “Understanding Nutritional Safety Operations [...]

ABOLISH ASUN Club Denied by ASUN
By: Barry Belmont

Bureaucracies by their nature must enforce pointless rules and regulations. Whereas rules created by most people are used to better a situation or accomplish an end, those established by ASUN (indeed all governments) necessarily include those laws, policies, and mandates which are not designed to help anyone but those who create and enforce said laws, [...]

Dear Gracie Pt. 3, Or; How to Remain Completely Oblivious Even After All This Time
By: Barry Belmont

Dear Gracie. Against my better judgment, I still read what you write sometimes. Sometimes you write on my blog comment section, sometimes you write on the VisLupes comment section, sometimes you write on the Sagebrush. You know all this. You have a lot to comment on. A lot to say, really — important stuff, you [...]

Still Pending…
By: Barry Belmont

So, I’m not going to lie to you right now, whenever I head over to the VisLupes’ site I tune out as soon as the discussion turns to open meeting laws or proposed legislations. I mean it’s just snoo. zers. But they recently posted on their blog something about some legislation being passed three years [...]

A Rebuttal To An Objection
By: Barry Belmont

And this is John Russell’s response to Patrick Delaplain’s argument in favor of ASUN An Argument Against ASUN I would invite other club leaders to respond to this as well, but allow me to answer these questions based upon my experience (worked for asun, ran for election, club leader my entire time). Before starting the [...]

An Objection to Current Shenaniganery
By: Barry Belmont

Patrick Delaplain is amongst the coolest people you’ll ever chance to meet at UNR. He’s pretty smart, pretty funny, and remarkably level-headed. Admirable traits all. He actually took the time to respond to our Abolish ASUN Festival on our site, but just in the comment section. It’s actually such a rational response to the Festival [...]

Love us or hate us, you can’t say we aren’t trying
By: Mary Hunton

There has been a bit of an uproar concerning our latest shenanigan. If I thought the Abolish ASUN festival was getting us enough attention as it was, making our Abolish ASUN petition public to the wonderful world of the internet was the icing on top of the cake. By announcing the festival we got a [...]

Racist Comedy at UNR…
By: Barry Belmont

No, no, we’re not talking about the ever-present farce that are diversity initiatives, we’re talking about a recent comedy skit performed for the ASUN Leadership conference. Apparently this troupe did a skit about Barack Obama and one of the actors, to impersonate him, painted his face black. This, many people seem to think, is a [...]
