    Seriously, I pwned you in the other thread when you played this game, I don't know when you are going to learn.


    You did no such thing.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    Allowing members of extremist groups won't hurt the war effort, either. So, we might as well allow people, who are members of extremist groups, to serve openly and lift the ban on such memberships. Afterall, those people are already serving and are a valuable part of the finest fighting force in the history of the world. Besides, it's a violation of their constitutional rights to have such a ban in place.

That means even if every Democrat had voted for it, it would have still failed because the Republicans unanimously voted against it.
    Wasn't there some kinda bull**** tied to that legislation, that insured a unanimous Republican vote?

    You should check out the vote. I believe it was 2 democrats voted against it in the senate, and one of those for procedural reasons. So it hardly is "the left". Nice try though.

    You seem to really care about letting KKK members into the military, you bring it up in every single thread. This thread is not about members of groups that the government labels extremist or terrorist. It's about homosexuals serving openly. So please, don't derail another thread. We've hashed this over and over.

    Congress needs to pass a repeal of DADT as a stand-alone bill. It's always attached to some other crap that pisses off one or both parties and ensures the bill fails. Almost like they're doing it on purpose so they can keep their wedge issue. Congressmen love wedge issues.

    Tell ya what...show me a poll that indicates that 70-80% of Americans want to allow members of extremists groups to serve and another survey indicating that most troops would not care and that it would not hurt war efforts, and then you could argue that this is comparable. Until then, it is a pretty pathetic argument.

    Can you find me evidence of one Republican Senator who would have voted for it?

    I believe Snowe was willing to vote for it, but procedural crap involving the DREAM act kept her from doing so.
