Regardless of CAP's stance (or non-stance) on the issue at hand, this type of thing has the potential to create a negative public opinion of CAP to the vast majority of Americans. It needs to be removed and retracted. Um. The vast majority of Americans? I think the fact it was repealed shows that there was support for these folks. And while some in the military may not like that DADT was, in fact, repealed, overall it had little impact on a large number of us. I went through what was supposed to be about 1-2 hrs of computer based training (ok ok, it took 15 minutes. I read the highlights. 'Can't discriminate on hiring/firing whatever based on sexual orientation. Add it to the race pile. Because of DOMA, the military can't grant recognition to same-sex unions. So noted. Now, back to studying for my tests/evaluations.'Or do you mean CAP being involved in a political issue at all. Just our existence can upset people and the fact that we had no clear stance one way or the other (which was risky). Technically, unless I missed something (and someone please correct me if I did!) we still don't really. There was a debate about this on Captalk some time ago. Best I can see is for us to follow the military example.

QuoteYou didn't find the "original" unless cameras now take photos with poster text and embedded logos.

Quote from: David Vandenbroeck on September 16, 2012, 10:51:09 PMI am in agreement that we need to protect both the cadets and the organization from any harm. However, I wonder how many on here are more offended by the actual message on the poster rather than the legal aspects of using a person / organizations image without permission. Would all of you who are up in arms be as strenuous in your objecting if the t-shirts and poster bore a message more to your liking?
Quote from: Flying Pig on September 17, 2012, 04:27:42 PMPeople can always get their picture with if they want to in public. Whether you choose to is different. I highly doubt the average cadet is going to refuse a photo with anyone while working at an airshow. I was at a static display once with our helicopter and some dirtbag retard with a "F--K COPS" tshirt on actuay wanted to pose with me next to the helo. I just laughed but that didnt stop him from posing with the aircraft where his girlfriend took a pictiure of him flipping off the Sheriffs badge on the helicopter. And Id imagine Im probably in a photo or two in his FB page as well. Honestly if I was at an airshow and these people wanted to pose with me, Id do it and move on. If it ever came back around as this photo did, i just say "I posed with 100 people that day. Im not a dress code monitor in junior high".
