I don't have any opinions about the funding, but... why do you think it's perfectly fine to use "retard" as an insult? I would hope that no one would put up with any racist, sexist, or homophobic language on this listserv or at the General Assembly; whether you like it or not, using the word "retard" as a pejorative perpetuates ableism.

Don't be a retard. The food fund has 15,000 in it. Spare us.

Are flyers really more important than feeding people?

I recently posted a message suggesting that we try to feed the hungry, but no one seems to have commented on it. If we have $6000, I would like to suggest the idea one more time. I feel it would amount tom putting our money where our mouth is.

Why not use the $6000 in food money for flyers? I believe Justin Wedes has access to the account.

I was only able to crank out 100, which I left on the table by the front of the GA. I'll try and print more once my boss has gone home. Nobody else in my office is sympathetic to the occupation so I've got to be sneaky.
