    Re: Republicans block bill to lift military gay ban

    I do love the dishonesty of the article. The Dem's have the majority... we don't have 56 votes...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: Republicans block bill to lift military gay ban

    I support repealing DADT to some degree. However I am glad this bill did not pass. Not only did it contain DADT, it contained the DREAM act, a lift on banning abortions in military hospitals, and other liberal earmarks trying to be pushed in a defense spending bill.

    Leave it to Navy Pride to start another anti-gay thread without getting any of the facts straight. This vote had nothing to do with the merits of DADT. It simply had to do with procedural aspects of it. You are treading water at this point Navy....the ship has sailed...its just matter of time.
    The overwhelming number of Americans and military support repealing the ban. It is only the right-wing and the homophobes that are fighting against it.

    Re: 'Don't ask, don't tell' repeal in doubt

    the dream language was indeed included in the legislation that lost

    Senate deals blow to 'Don't ask, don't tell' repeal in 56-43 vote - TheHill.com

    rhino's like omnipresent olympia, of course, are eager to endorse such a bill of 21st century stylings

    what turned her, she says, was reid's disallowance of any more than one gop amendment

    i think it's something else that's influencing her, she's cooperated with parliamentary procedure quite a number of times before

    her more bonafide bugaboo is about leadership, the WHO that currently sits there

    that is, had anyone else proposed this piece, she'd've played

    anyway

    chances of passage in the near future are exceedingly unlikely as nov 2 is gonna radically alter the landscape

    richard socarides, gay rights adviser under bill clinton (who has been bucking the adminstration like mad the last couple days, along with robert reich, james carville, ed rendell and a number of other noted clintonistas, i'd love to tell you what i know but i guess here's not a good place), called leadership's management of this bill "a political train wreck," adding obama "badly miscalculated" pentagon support

    Don't ask, don't tell doesn't change | News Cut | Minnesota Public Radio

    i'd take socarides' sniping with some salt, considering the source, the clintons are very ambitiously positioning themselves these days

    except, the gay rights adviser appears to have a point about the pentagon

    The Associated Press: Man chosen to lead Marines against lifting gay ban

    i'd ask if you're still sure leadership knows what it's doing, but i guess it's not real necessary anymore

    fyi

    take care

    Try to follow here. He kept posting for 4 pages responding to countless attacks.

    He had finally had enough after 4 pages and you berate him for leaving? I'd like to see you stay in that kind of a fight when you were on the other end.
