OYE 103: Tactics, Techniques and Procedures
Here's how Operation Yellow Elephant works:
We invite all real Americans concerned about the future of our nation in fighting and Winning the Global War on Terrorism to join Operation Yellow Elephant. If you encounter someone apparently eligible to serve (healthy heterosexuals, especially men, 41 and under) who supports the war, please encourage him to consider volunteering for military service. Please take the initiative and Ask The Question and say, "Be A Man! Enlist!"
Ask those not eligible to serve who support the war to encourage their relatives and friends, their circles of influence, to consider volunteering. You don't have to tell us anything or even give us credit, though both are welcome. America comes first!
Everything we do is based on the public record. This includes not only public statements to the media, but also organizations, and their officers, that have chosen to publicize themselves on the Internet. Individual members of organizations have the right of privacy, but publicly acknowledged officers of publicly acknowledged organizations are, let's face it, public.
We respect the personal privacy of our subjects. We don't use personal information (home addresses, home phone numbers, etc.) but we freely use official-type contact information which our subjects have chosen to share with the public. [It's always a good idea for public figures to establish separate e-mail addresses for their public personas. Mine is operationyellowelephant -at - gmail [dot] com; if you'd like a no-strings-attached gmail invitation, please let me know.]
We seek to contact our subjects at their offices (or equivalent). With the possible exception of an initial communication seeking office contact information, we leave them alone at home. We send at least two separate e-mails Asking The Question and seeking comment, for publication or not, before posting anything.
We will promptly correct any errors, and apologize or explain when appropriate. When a subject requests that we remove an e-mail address from our blog, we have complied. [The American people remain free to look up such e-mail addresses by themselves.]
We urge our members and supporters to engage in civil discussion of our topic, including in their direct communications with our subjects. Our Founding Fathers endorsed robust, uninhibited debate on public issues. Operation Yellow Elephant welcomes and proudly participates in this great American tradition.
