    "News Analysis: House defense bill vote shows how LGBT orgs' strategy leads House Dems to treat LGBT measures differently than GOP did"


    "The House members did so, moreover, following a strategic decision made by LGBT organizations not to lobby or otherwise attempt to get lawmakers to vote no on the bill as the organizations believe the provisions can more easily be removed in the Senate or subsequent conference committee."

    The last election was a referendum on Obama and his accomplices. The next election will be an even bigger referendum on the worst president of modern times and his radical agenda.

    It's difficult to name one policy initiative of this administration aimed at benefiting the American people as a whole. Everything is about pandering to this or that Democrat special interest group.

    DOMA was passed by large majorities and signed into law by a Democrat president, Clinton as I recall. It's widely considered the duty of a sitting president to enforce the law, not chose to enforce what tickles his legal fancy.

    DADT repeal was an eleventh hour stunt by a Congress which no longer represented the will of the American people. That Congress showed about as much concern regarding the effects of DADT repeal as they did about the effects of their spending/borrowing/printing orgy.

    "The House of Representatives on Thursday approved its version of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act with three amendments, one of which is aimed at delaying repeal implementation of "don't ask, don't tell."

    "The amendments would require the four service branch chiefs to sign off on DADT repeal, affirm that the Defense of Marriage Act applies to Defense Department policies, and prohibit weddings for same-sex couples at military facilities — as well as bar military chaplains from performing such weddings in their official capacity. The House version of the defense authorization bill was approved by a 322 to 96 vote."

    1. Do you consider yourself and the rest of us gays here merely a "special interest group" that deserves no civil rights, but instead unequal treatment under the law?
    2. Why do you oppose repeal of DADT? Do you believe gays should be prohibited from serving our country?
    3. Do you also support DOMA, which prohibits the Federal Government from recognizing gay marriages from States that have chosen to legalize them? Why would you oppose that, if it's a states-rights issue?
