Will be interesting to read his speech. Got to wonder if he's going to advise Stanford's graduates that they should look forward to a world of dimishing freedoms, and perhaps the loss of the Bill of Rights--perhaps at the national level, or perhaps hullified by city governments, like the one where he was voted dictator, in the guise of a mayor.

Will he make it clear that Stanford grads should leave the University with a firm belief that they, and other Americans, have no right to own a gun, or to buy/use tobacco products, or to be able to walk down the street without being stopped, detained, and frisked. That Americans should have to turn over the Cell phones to any police officer that wants to see what is on that phone, or to record the numbers most recently called. That the recent Supreme Court decision to authorize DNA swabs as a part of police booking procedure should be extended so that the police should be able to obtain a DNA for a traffic stop, or to even go house-to-house, if necessary.

That Stanford grads should expect in the coming years not to be able to live where they want, but to be assigned government owned housing--in order to protect the environment. And, that Stanford grads should expect to have no more than one child--just like the people of China!

Wonder just what Mayor Control-Freak will say to this year's graduates?
