Has anyone else heard word of this?
dcarm saidRe Obama and McCain
It all depends on which way they'd be repealing it. I'm guessing Obama would be repealing DADT in the positive "gays can serve openly in the militry" way. while McCain would want to either keep it as is or go back to "None of you ho-mo-se-xuals can join."
John43620 saidCongress had a session to discuss the subject, that's all that's going on right now.
In his last few months in office, I think President Bush will lift DADT and the ban by executive order. It's just a hunch. He doesn't have to play to the base so much anymore and he is more LGBT friendly than you know.
I am disappointed in the most vocal elements of the LGBT community for not being supportive of President Bush and the war on terror. I doubt if the country can rely on recruits from that sector anyway. They just give the christian taliban more ammunition to oppress LGBT patriots.
Caslon, you bring up the race riots of the 60s, I'm glad you did, nothing illustrates the differences between Republicans and Democrats better. We Republicans aren't so vocal, we don't throw temper tantrums and carry signs on "marches", or take part in "civil disobedience", better known as riots. We just voice our opinions in acceptable forums and vote.
Unfortunately the government wasted a ton of money on "non-lethal" riot suppression gear, 00 buckshot would work much better. Open rebellion deserves a lethal response.

mickeytopogigio saidHere's an awesome exchange in Congress today about the topic. The woman is obnoxious, and she gets hit with a great question from the Representative.

The Washington Post saidRep. Vic Snyder (D-Ark.) labeled her statement "just bonkers" and "dumb," and he called her claims about an HIV menace "inappropriate." Said Snyder: "By this analysis . . . we ought to recruit only lesbians for the military, because they have the lowest incidence of HIV in the country."
