Two kinds of York students

I have been asked why I dislike the CFS and certain York groups so much. That is a valid question.

Are they not, after all, just expressing their opinions?

The answer, of course, is that there are two kinds of students at York: Those who want to protest the war on Iraq, and those who want to go to class and ultimately graduate.

Here's to hoping that the Iraqis, who now have their sovereignty back, will settle into democracy without too much kerfluffle, and that the rest of us can now go back to class.

Of course, with that new controversial film coming out, somehow I doubt it.

So here is my theme song to sing to people who are anti- war/American/conservative/my-right-to-go-to-class and thus protest all day.

GOB's "Give up the grudge":

Don't make me listen to the megaphone choir again
Still protesting a war that already reached the end
I hear them whining and complaining like they got it so tough
We’re sick of all your protests will you ever shut up!

So keep acting your mock checkpoints till no one even sees them
If that's the best you can make up, at least act like you mean it

Give up the grudge, shut your f***ing mouth
Why you gotta judge everbody but yourself
Take a look around, no one seems to care
Have you heard of lecture hall, maybe you should go there!

Your tuition's too high yeah that's a cryin shame
I guess 5 k a year buys nothing but complaints
The people in my riding think Stephen Harper's a threat
But Layton's a millionaire and Martin put you into debt!

So keep quoting Michael Moore till no one even hears it
If that's the best you can make up, perhaps you shouldn't be here!

Give up the grudge, shut your f***ing mouth
Why you gotta judge everbody but yourself
Take a look around, no one seems to care
Have you heard of lecture hall, maybe you should go there!
