Local College Will Not Let Kids Rent Out Rooms For Inauguration

News

We all know that Northern Virginia's George Mason University is run by a bunch of no-fun goons who hate happiness in all of its various flavors. It's worse than we'd imagined, however: they now hate capitalism, America's famous system of economics. University administrators today sent out an e-mail to students threatening violent "discipline" if they rent out their dorm rooms to desperate strangers during Inauguration, a creative free-market idea that could help the University in the long run, as all students will otherwise default on their loans within several years because of Deflation. The shocking e-mail, below.

Subject: Residence Hall Agreement Reminder

To: [redacted]@gmu.edu

Dear [redacted],

As you finish finals and the semester winds down, we hope that you found living on campus at George Mason University to be beneficial to your academic pursuits. When classes resume in January, we hope that the residence halls continue to provide a collegial, supportive environment.

The Washington, D.C. area will be in the spotlight early next year as President-elect Barack Obama is sworn into office on January 20, 2009, Inauguration Day. Many news stories since the election have documented the shortage of hotel space in the region for the expected thousands of spectators. We would like to remind you that your housing agreement permits only you to occupy the space assigned to you in the residence halls. Your Residence Hall License Agreement and Dining Service Agreement states, "The residence and dining service provided by this Agreement may not be sold, loaned, sub-let, or transferred." For the safety of your own property and your fellow residents, do not solicit offers for your space in the residence halls. Residents who do so will be subject to disciplinary action.

Our residential communities thrive when residents understand their responsibilities. This includes adhering to the Residence Life Standards enumerated in the Guide to P.R.I.D.E.

Good luck with finals and have a relaxing winter break.

Ha ha, the students are forced to follow rules in a gay book called "Guide to P.R.I.D.E." Don't listen to this gay rule, kids. Make money wherever money's to be made!

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
