"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
I hate to do this, but Texmaster is, in a way, right. One of the things banned by DADT is "marriage or attempted marriage" to some one of the same sex. Now the military won't look for evidence, but if presented with it, it is a done deal.
This does not mean the police where right(they where not), only that she did, by getting married, violate military regulations.
"I believe in a Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the harmony of all that exists, but not in a God who concerns himself with the fate and actions of human beings."
--Albert Einstein, 1929
And this is exactly why DADT should be repealed, along with any and all military rules banning gays. There is no need to discharge someone just because she wants to spend declare her intentions publicly to spend her life with the woman she loves. That declaration in no way affected what she did for the military. The only reason her being gay affects her military career at all is because of DADT. That is just stupid.
"A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." - Eleanor Roosevelt
Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
I'm glad to see she got an honorable, though.
Until the rule is changed it has to be followed. Hopefully it'll change soon.
