Yes, and apparently they're just as protectionist about it as they are about everything else. Here's an idea... put a tax on all the outsourced work we send to Inda's IT industry in response. The whole thing basically serves foreign (Western) business. They'll change their minds REAL QUICK. They have a lot more to lose than we do: Our markets are far more open to them than vice-versa.

Regarding the "other news"...
The Ann Arbor-based Thomas More Center for Law and Justice filed a federal lawsuit July 10 on behalf of Betsy Hansen, who said Pioneer High School violated her civil rights during its Diversity Week in March.

Pioneer High now has a "diversity week". Huh. Things have changed in such a short time. Thank you Bill and Hillary.
Hansen, who graduated in June, said she was forced to remove comments about homosexuality from her speech to an all-school assembly and was prohibited from being on a panel that discussed religion and homosexuality. Hansen, who is Roman Catholic, objects to homosexuality based on her religious beliefs.

Another sieg heil to the thought police. They're against censorship you know. Really!
Muise also said Hansen was told she couldn't be a member of the panel on religion and homosexuality "because her message was a negative message and it would water down the positive message they wanted to convey." Some students who organized the discussion felt that views of people who oppose homosexuality are often heard, and therefore they recruited the panelists who supported homosexuality, Niehoff said.

So schools are now recruiting entire (stacked deck) panels of people who actively promote homosexuality. Interesting what the educational priorities are in public education these days.
