    Wow, the military is really in a kind of legal limbo if this is enforced. As I understand it, they won't be able to enforce DADT because of the judge's injunction but at the same time, the law is still on the books and so they still can't ask.

    Currently, the military has a hold on any discharges based on orientation and will as long as this order is active(ie until a stay on the judge's order is issues).

    Why don't we pass a law that only gays can serve in the military?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Cuz then we would have a kickass military, war would cease in a few years, and the world would enter a time of absolute peace.

    That would be bad for the military industrial complex.

    Althought the courts have the ability to make such decisions, I would much rather have the senate overturn it.

    Yeah, that's why you thought that DADT was the actual ban on gays in the military and that the abolition of DADT would make everything wonderful.

    I find it hypocritical of Obama to promise the gay community he'd end DADT, and when a judge essentially hands that to him on a silver platter, he asks for a stay of the judges order.

    I think Obama just wants it on the books long enough for the Pentagon's report to come out, so when they say 'yes, ending it will not harm the military', he can get it through congress and say 'See? I told you 'I' would end DADT.' He wants the credit to go to him, not some nobody judge.

    Sounds an awful lot like you're suggesting that gays are somehow superior to straights. Careful, don't cross the line into the land of bigotry.
