  • Stanford's Anti-Military Crusade--Part 2

    1/13/2010 4:32:24 PM Posted by Patrick Coyle

    ROTC at Reagan RanchYesterday we reported on an email from a Stanford law professor complaining about military recruiters appearing on campus. The next morning, another professor asked all law school students to sign a petition urging the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy be repealed. The plan is to present the recruiters with the petition when they visit Stanford's campus.

    However, presenting military recruiters with the petition will not change anything. Congress has the sole discretion to establish the qualifications for and conditions of service in our nation’s military. If those on Stanford's campus have an issue with the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, lobby Congress. Those who wish to serve in the military should not be punished for policies over which they have no control.

    Let's be clear though, the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" objection raised by the Left is just their latest anti-military argument. The Left opposed military recruiters and ROTC before such a policy existed. Remember, ROTC has been banned at Stanforf since 1969.

    It would also be interesting to ask whether Stanford applies the same standards to all entities and programs that are available on campus. For example, does Stanford allow race-based scholarships? Those exclude any number of students.

    Subject: JAG recruiting

    Dear All: 

    Yesterday, OCS [on campus career services] announced that the Air  Force JAG had registered for Spring OCI [on-campus interviewing].  As you know,  the military--under the congressionally mandated “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” policy--openly discriminates against lesbians, gays and bisexuals. We'd like to take the opportunity of JAG being here to protest that policy and urge it's repeal.  We ask you to consider signing online OUTLAW's protest letter, which they will present to the JAG recruiters when they come on campus to interview.

    http://www.law.stanford.edu/a/slspetition/ 

    As the petition states, we are proud of those who have served, or are serving, in the armed forces.  It is, indeed, for this reason that we oppose Don't Ask, Don't Tell and strongly believe that (as is true everywhere else in the world) all Americans should have the privilege to serve openly in the military, regardless of their sexual orientation.

    If you signed on to the petition this fall, there is no need to do so again (we’ve attached the current list of signatories, below).  
      
    Best, 

    Larry Kramer 
    Maureen Keffer, OUTLAW Co-President

    • Mario, Michael, and Headfirst staff We just want to tell you, on behalf of Matt, that Diana and I were very imspsered with today's 1st day of the Headfirst showcase. What a pleasure it was to see a well run and organized showcase. Since Matt's first showcase/camps from last year and through this year, and he has attended many (Perfect Game, Santa Clara, UC Davis, UC Santa Barbara, UC San Diego, Nate Trosky camps, et al), your Headfirst showcase beats them all, bar none! I knew your showcase was something special during your morning presentation and introduction of the coaches that was never before done as eloquently and effectively at any that Matt has attended. And it is no coincidence that Matt is performing better than at any of the ones he's attended.There was no standing around by the players as you had simultaneous activities, very well supervised by the Headfirst coaches; everything was organized and the the coaches directed the players to their next activity.The agenda of the day's activities was posted, the first we've ever seen at a showcase.The position drills were the best run we ever saw, and it helped to visibly align the coaches/scouts in one section so that players and parents knew who and where they were. In all the other showcases/camps, you had to guess who and where they were!The breaks to allow the visiting coaches and scouts to make their presentations, were done efficiently and effectively.What really helped was that you had a speaker system set up. Again, we had never seen such production in any of other other showcases.We were also so very imspsered with the conditions of the fields; and your staff did an excellent job in grooming them between each activity and game.You had a great representation of schools, and even major league teams.Believe it or not, your food/BBQ concession stand was the first we ever saw at a showcase event! The food was excellent, and the staff was very friendly.Thank you so much for an excellent showcase, and that was only day 1! Keep up the good work, and hope to see and talk to you tomorrow. Abraham and Diana Millado

    • This is nice, and it makes sense to have now that Android is becoming much more <a href="http://dvevdap.com">reolanizgbce</a> to the masses. One thing that really jumps out, though, is that high-end, unlocked, vanilla Android phones seem to be a thing of the past.With all the push to "differentiate", you'd think that someone would want to fill this niche. There's a huge, vocal market clamouring for a Nexus One successor. I really hope one day we'll find out what happened behind the scenes with the Nexus One.

    • The Nexus One isn't available for AT&T in the US <a href="http://mokgvvdod.com">anomyre</a>, anywhere. Don't know if that should be on the list for AT&T (Google still has the T-Mobile Dev version I believe).Also, how about a no-carrier option? I know I'd be willing to by an unbranded unlocked version of a cell phone straight up and just toss my sim card in there (which I had to do to get a good Android 3G phone for US AT&T, bought the Canadian HTC Desire, 3G works on AT&T).
