It is time for the Missouri Southern faculty to fight back again.
Otherwise, your reading this site and your clandestine social bitch sessions and your legitimate complaints will bear no positive fruit.
The President’s Council is dangerous as hell. It has become a Star Chamber that decides the fate of some people with dispassionate dispatch.
Do you know what a Star Chamber is? Maybe we can help. It was a select group of powerful people. Court sessions were held in secret, with no indictments, no right of appeal, no juries, and no witnesses. Evidence was presented in writing. Over time it evolved into a political weapon, a symbol of the misuse and abuse of power by the English monarchy and courts.
Does that sound like something MSSU has today?
We have heard even some of the foot soldiers are getting time in the rack.
People have been and are being railroaded for no good reason. This Star Chamber continues to operate against good people without check. It is time for the faculty, and especially the Faculty Senate, to lick its wounds and get back in the fight. You got beat once. So what? It is getting worse. Keep fighting.
These Stress Ball (yes he is a proper noun, now) pictures show the disdain you all feel. Don’t make a bunch of people with a smart-ass blog fight your fight. Fight it yourselves. Oh, and professional staff and classified employees: You have a stake in this, too. You can keep living in fear and kissing ass, or you can tell the Staff Senate to have some stones. They already have (stress)balls.
We heard from a reader today who said, “You are all we have left.” Isn’t that fucking pathetic? A renegade blog that relies on sarcasm, satire and profanity is the staff and faculty’s last line of defense.
