    Gentlemen....the Senate votes today on getting rid of the Don't ask,Don't tell policy....This would insure that all gay's wouldn't need to lie about their sexual status....Please....e-mail or call our Senator.....TODAY....Gay's should have the right to serve without lying about their personal lives.....Lastly....I thank all gay service men and women for defending our country.......BUD....Steven

    OK, so we lost in the vote today. But doesn't it come up again after Pentagon completes their review in December?

    Interesting enough, when a post is added to my thread, RJ has somehow blocked it from showing up on the current threads.

    Yes, which is when it should have come up in the first place. The Democrats knew this, but they rolled the dice and it back-fired on them.

    No the republicans played their hand

    It's where They are coming from
    Harry Reid should never have given them the excuse of

    Oh... we didn't voe for it because we couldn't add any amendments
    Bull Shit

    You know as well as I know that McConnell and his crew would have scuttled that bill with amendment after amendment until it died a slow death
    So for the republicans out there? How you feelin' about your republican party right now?

    A man is not defeated when he loses, he is defeated when he stops trying. As more and more closed minded people leave Congress, we will see the tides of American government changing in our favor. "Don't ask don't tell" allows the gay community to serve in the military, in time it will be repealed, and the gay military will be assigned separate platoons, and in time be integrated into the military.

    It is just like Independence, global warming, death, taxes, the question is not will it come it is when.

    Did you know that amnesty for about 2 million illegal aliens was included in it? Ever heard of a "poison pill?"

    Perhaps that is one of the reasons why the vote failed as well, hmmmm?


    It was stated as 'young people' (whatever that means) would be able to serve in the military and be granted US Citizenship. The repeal of DADT was also attached to a $726 billion military spending bill.

    Didn't see anything in there about amnesty for illegals but IMO, if someone from another country wants to be a citizen and is willing to serve in the military in order to do so...I say let them. This country is after all composed of immigrants.

    I think the more important question would be "Democrats, how are YOU feeling about your party right now?".

    As for "McConnell and his crew" scuttling a bill up with amendment after amendment until it dies a slow death, you don't know that would be the case. This issue was not supposed to be brought up for a vote yet. It was the Democrats who messed it up by playing their typical political tricks and attaching it to other bills and forcing a vote. It backfired on them. Let's have this discussion once the Pentagon commission data is in and it comes up for a vote again. Hopefully, the Dems won't muck it up next time.
