I am thinking back to 2002 when I started writing about the occasional inappropriate use of political and religious factors in hiring decisions in my department. I am thinking that I haven’t seen any such inappropriate activity in four years.
I am thinking about the students at UNC-Greensboro who challenged the university’s unconstitutional “speech zone” policy by waving “UNCG hates free speech” signs at school officials. I am thinking how the administrators ran away with their tails between their legs after all was said and done. I am thinking about how they no longer have speech zones at UNCG.
I am thinking about Pennsylvania State University’s recent decision to modify its speech codes because of a suit in federal court (thanks to the Alliance Defense Fund). I am thinking this decision to modify the speech codes came shortly after school officials were denying they had a speech code.
I am thinking about the feminist who demanded and received a pay-raise because she knew was going to have to put up with criticism from Mike Adams and his readers in the coming year. I am thinking they should have just hired me to head the Women’s Resource Center.
I am thinking about homosexuals at Georgia Tech who made racist attacks against a student who was mounting a legal challenge against a speech code originally designed to fight racism before it was hi-jacked by racist homosexuals. I am thinking how I duped them into handing out my columns for me on the Georgia Tech campus.
I am also thinking about the time I advised students to post 1000 pictures of a man sodomizing another man all over campus - with the words “celebrate diversity” superimposed above their heads – just two hours before parents’ weekend. I am thinking about how they should have taken pictures of the university employees frantically ripping the pictures down before the parents saw them. I am thinking that they could have mailed them to gay rights groups and started a war between the university and the homosexual community.
I am thinking about my public threat of a lawsuit against my employer for an overly broad speech code. I am thinking about the phone call from a lawyer two weeks later saying the school had modified the policy.
I am thinking about the feminist who lost her job as a Woman’s Studies Director after she convinced students to vandalize a pro-life display.
I am thinking about the time I recommended that anti-feminist students sponsor “The Penis Monologues” to make fun of campus feminists. I am thinking about the students who actually did it.
I am thinking about a kid who flunked English four years in a row in high school and later gave speeches around the nation - speeches televised during prime time on CSPAN, and occasionally introduced by United States Congressmen. I am thinking it was Winston Churchill who said something about never, never, never, never, never, never giving up.
I am thinking about all the guns I have bought with money I earned making fun of feminists.
I am thinking that the people at www.cafepress.com have entirely too much time on their hands. Click here and I’m sure you’ll agree with my thinking.
I am thinking that the kid who was saying “You can’t beat these people” needs to read about a man named Ronald Reagan. And, finally, I am thinking that I will spend the rest of my days thinking about all the great things life has brought me and all the great things left to come.
