Side note: Does sling shots count?
Clearly you misjudge me...again. "Indoc" is in reference to the two day welcome aboard classes both parents and students attend. It covers financing and school policies, procedures, tours, ect. Was not referring to any other meaning. Not worried at all, just ticks me off that this was done. For one if they are looking for potential active shooters the information they sought would not help imo. If they are just looking for who to concentrate on for either dorm or vehicle searches, they are just as wrong in methodology. My belief system is not an issue here whatsoever. I am Conservative and Pro Second Amendment but it would be ignorant of me to think any college would respect that. [/QUOTE]
And right there is why you chose to use the word "indoc" instead of "orientation." As I said, save yourself
Wow, you really think ...differently. I spent 21 yrs on active duty, every PCS move had a base INDOC(their word not mine)to attend. A welcome aboard, ect. Big deal, whys it gotta be interpreted as brainwashing by you. Or you think by me? OMG (yeah I'm a Christian too)you are the one who needs to relax Sir. Get off your high horse and have a good day...
I am interested in which college this was.
Let us know how you really feel about it. No kidding....I for one think you should spell it out for those who think it's in their best interest or personal protection.Quote:
Boy that jerks my chain!
You feel this ordeal is authoritarian, socialistic, or communistic in origin? We all understand 'the concern', but for some of us your chain jerked sends waves across the pond. When are we gonna say enough is enough? Right here...right now....stand up in front of the class and say I am an American (just like the TV commercial last year). Come here venting your experiences.....that's fine.....more folks ought to be pissed at this ordeal that you experienced personally. We just need to get the sympathetic on the move instead of simply agreeing with you on your personal issue. In the end this concerns all of us. Nobody realizes that at the time.
Hang in there, bite your tongue, or throw a fit in front of the Dean. Principles? Principles cannot be cried over....you can't ask others what your principles should be or what they think of yours. Concerns and dislikes should always be voiced at the time. Deceptive? That's what you have in front of you now.....know your enemy.
A suppressed people are weak. Why the system works.Quote:
Why do people put up with this?
Never submit to a profiling. I got the same sort of thing with yearly hearing tests performed by contractors through my place of employment. Survey questions asked were profiling. I told them to stick it and a lot of other things since they were going by SSN at the time.
The system has run amok. It will only intrude where you let it. Never be afraid to say no.
Frankly, I'm about tired of all the BS they're laying down now. Yet sometimes it comes down to simply holding a financial obligation over your head in order to overlook some discrepancies. This is where America is weak and the individual held in contempt. Makes me sick.
Knock knock,Police,were want to search your room,Why?.You may have a gun.I'm not giving you consent!Thats alright we have probable cause and we have a search warrant based on the fact you said you own firearms.
I'm planning on talking with the campus cop and address this. Just gotta be tactful, cuz I don't want to cause trouble for my son. He was not one of the students who raised their hands btw. He told me it was obvious where it was leading. Just think some kid who deer hunts or is a gun owner shouldn't be looked at as a potential threat...
Never answer questions,,,, especially when it is NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS.

Indoctrination | Define Indoctrination at Dictionary.com
Note that "indoctrination" implies more than providing information, and is different from
"orientation" which is what most schools call these sessions-- Freshman Orientation.
I'm sure the school didn't call the sessions "indoc;" that term came from the OP and it
says something about how he views the situation, though I do understand his follow up
comment and appreciate the clarification.
your attempt to talk to the cops as 'interfering with his life.' This is one situation where a parent
needs to MYOB. Believe me, you'll not influence the Campus Po Po, but you will irritate your son.
If you paid attention at "indoc" (I mean freshman orientation) you would by now know that at 18
the school won't consult you, won't share info about your son with you, and won't even release his
grades to you. From their point of view he is an independent adult. You just get the bills. Enjoy.
We've put both of our kids through college, and that was a good time/place for them to address their problems at their school or in that community. I encouraged them to do so on their own so they could get some real-life experiences.
Twice my kids got exhausted in their effort to rectify whatever they were dealing with and asked for my input. Both times I told the "official" that since their tuition is my money, I'm pinch-hitting for my kids and have a interest in their case. That got the "officials" attention, they were happy to talk with me, and we resolved the issue.
Aside from that, it holds little weight with me what the meeting was called in the OP. I'll let the content and delivery of the meeting determine what it's all about.
Just because I like the title, doesn't mean I'd enjoy reading the book.
