RE: Very Blazer Related: The makings of UA's 'Machine'
Had you been a Bama student back in the early 60s, you would understand the context of the handwritten campaign sign placed outside Bidgood Hall which said "Back the Machine - vote for Jean".

One factor in "Greek power" during those years was their parties were the only ones on campus that could offer keg beer and hard liquor. Their political power even then allowed the open use of such beverages without risk of legal blowback. Independents giving parties could only offer soft drinks.

"We control a voting block of almost 8,000 students. As long as we use our power in a positive way, the group will continue to put the best and most qualified people in office, both at the university, the state, and the country."

If this were their true intent they would have folded up shop decades ago. They have produced and backed some candidates that would make a Louisiana politician blush. We're in the bottom 5 of nearly every quality of life measurement. Nice work fellas

9911, I'm not being snotty when I say that sometimes your written posts are difficult to understand.

I wouldn’t mind you pointing it out to me privately next time you see one. Don’t need anything else to egg Dee on.

I think niletes is the actual name for the red squiggly line. 03-lmfao

Could you use it in a sentence?
"I wasn't sure if I spelled the word wrong, but the niletes indicated that I had." Niletes.
