Another three years!

Texas State students are ecstatic that they get to spend three more years being treated as second class citizens!

Hooray!

We've moved up from being prisoners to second class now.

:-D

Here is a great little movie that our very own CM1277 put together.

How come you didn't post this up before the election ?

How, specifically, are students treated as second class citizens?

But, I would like to know. I think part of the problem is that neither side acknowledges the issues of the other. I was a student once, but maybe it was too long ago and the issues have changed, or my memory of them has faded.

I'd like to know what they are.

Perhaps the dream of certain people on this board acknowledging the issues of the non-students will never be realized, but at least I can do my part.

I have heard that this doctored youtube video was produced by the new City Council Liason from the Texas State Student Council. Great news. Why did he chop it up and take Bose's words out of context? I guess he wouldn't be as successful at creating anger among student voters.

It's more chop quote edited, not so much doctored. You can make George Bush advocate bombing New York with the right edits.

My question is where in the video does Bose compare students to prisoners? Unless all the students live in Sagewood and are breaking the law, you cannot logically infer that bose is comparing students to prisoners. Hell all the problems that people complain about in Sagewood are not solely attributed to students. cm1277 do you believe all students live in Sagewood and cause trouble or are you just an ineffective liar.

Thanks Brete. Doctored is the wrong word and chop edited is more accurate. I only watched it once, but I did not hear him say students should be treated as prisoners. I guess this is the type of negative campaigning we can expect in the future for San Marcos. I hope I am wrong.

What is interesting is that there are only about 300 residents on Sagewood and the university and others are quick to point out that at least half of them are not students.

So there are no more than 150 students there, out of 30,000 total. That's not even 1/2 of 1% and there hasn't even been an assertion that all of those 150 students are part of the problem. So Bose was comparing less than 1/2 of 1%, those who are breaking the law, to prisoners.

How does anyone, other than a politician with a campaign to run, equate that to comparing the students to prisoners? By that token, since half the people he was talking about are not students, he is comparing all non-students to prisoners as well.

How dare he!

Interestingly, he was discussing the fact that there are countless violations of all sorts of ordinances over there and very few citations had been given up to that point. This is evidence that the residents of that neighborhood, students and non-students alike, have been given preferential treatment, not that they have been treated as 2nd class citizens, as some have said.

Of course, all of the students in that area who are not part of the problem, who simply want to study and better themselves and have to live in that ghetto with no action by the city or the university to clean it up, they may feel like 2nd class citizens, but rest assured, that’s how we all get treated.
