Basically, screaming about 'Rape culture!' equals

"We can use this to control people.  And institutions."
It's going to get real interesting when falsely-accused and railroaded men start getting BIG damage awards.

Why do I loathe and despise 'progressives' so, let me count another way:
That’s why there was a session at the 2014 White Privilege Conference – held in Madison, Wisconsin in late March – titled, “Examining White Privilege and Building Foundations for Social Justice Thinking in the Elementary Classroom.” The session was led by two teachers, Rosemary Colt and Diana Reeves.

“But what we’re hoping to be able to convince you is possible is to take the (inaudible) sequences, which you are directed to be using, and to find within them opportunities to begin to insert social justice, anti-racist information for even little kids to understand,” Reeves said.
“What does it mean to be privileged,” another question asks.
“If you are privileged you are white,” another child answered.

The teachers also played a video they produced with their students, where they interviewed them about their perceptions of race and privilege. Perhaps the most disturbing aspect is how the teachers guide the students to the desired answers. (No wonder they have to target unassuming children.)

Really sucks when your own PC idiocy bites you in the ass, doesn't it?
Berkeley's Mr. Birgeneau is famous as an ardent defender of minority students, the LGBT community and undocumented illegal immigrants. What could possibly be wrong with this guy speaking at Haverford??? Haverfordians were upset that in 2011 the Berkeley police used "force" against Occupy protesters in Sproul Plaza. They said Mr. Birgeneau could speak at Haverford if he agreed to nine conditions, including his support for reparations for the victims of Berkeley's violence.
Well, Birgeneau, you helped set this up; how do you like it?
In a letter, Mr. Birgeneau replied, "As a longtime civil rights activist and firm supporter of nonviolence, I do not respond to untruthful, violent verbal attacks."

The Army is still perfecting this design. They'd like to build a helmet with a responsive respirator that's only on when it needs to be on, and presumably, the helmet should also feature the same functionality we've seen in previous concepts. That means a heads-up display with live targeting, GPS battle mapping, and incoming video. Because without all that, it would just a head bucket, wouldn't it?
I'm wondering if David Drake can sue for royalties on this, 'cause it sounds an awful lot like a Slammers helmet(assuming the Army doesn't screw it up).

Assuming Obama & Co. gave a rats ass about veterans, and weren't planning on doing this to ALL of us, Shiseki should be fire, and the people who faked the records prosecuted.  But it won't happen, because they don't and they do.
