Don't: Ask, Tell, Discriminate

At Cal State San Marcos, controversy has been raised over the possible introduction of Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) courses to the curriculum.

Similar to the ROTC programs of many surrounding high schools, classrooms and campus land would be set aside for pre-military training and education by military personnel. Some see the ROTC’s presence as beneficial to the campus.

“The presence of the ROTC means a lot more people on campus and could bring a lot of potential students to our school” said Joan Anderson, an NWP teacher consultant at Cal State.

However, a conflict exists between the military’s stance on sexual orientation and the campus’s policy of non-discrimination. This has created concern among faculty and students, notably the campus’s student LBGT group. In response, the school’s Academic Senate has formed a group to study the matter.

“The goal of the study group is to gauge public opinion and deliberate on the subject; no more, no less,” said Dan Barrett, cochair of the appointed study group.

The decision will ultimately be left up to the student body on whether or not the ROTC program will be admitted. However, a public forum (“town hall meeting”) will take place on campus on Tuesday, February 24, from noon until 12:50 p.m.

The mentally ill devients run the universities in California. What is next, bestiallity, peodophila, necrophila? Sick societies die. The cancer is amoungst us. Cut it out, or it will kill more.

If the Reader really believed in the first ammendment it would not edit significant portions of my comments. Edit this Mao.

Let us talk plainly about this subject, for plain talk shows the folly of the confused. A man shoves his erect penis, through the anal sphincter and into another mans rectum and ejaculates seaman into a mixture of blood and feces. In doing so he spreads disease that kills millions. This is a good thing?

Hey, hey...ho,ho...logic has got to go. Where is that tree I was hugging? Hope my professor doesn't see this. Damn, can't find my bong. Maybe my diversity and multicultuaral training will help me. Sure hasn't helped my spelling.

Come on Fumber. Call me a right wing pig. Tell me how ignorant my views are. I'm bored.

Oh, don't call me a religious nut 'cause i'm an atheist. But everything else is fine.

I think mao is spelled moa or visa versa. When you live in constant pain spelling seems so insignificant.
