    Supreme Court: "Don't Ask Don't Tell" OK during appeal.

    Like Yogi Berra once said, "Its not over until its over."

    Supreme Court: 'Don't ask, don't tell' OK during appeal - Josh Gerstein - POLITICO.com


    The Supreme Court issued an order Friday afternoon allowing the Obama Administration to continue to enforce the “don’t ask, don’t tell” ban on openly gay military members while the Justice Department appeals a lower court ruling that found the policy is unconstitutional.

    Acting without explanation or recorded dissent, the justices rejected an application from the Log Cabin Republicans that would have restored a lower judge’s order prohibiting discharges and investigations under the 1993 law mandating “don’t ask.”

    It's over NP, it's just a matter of when. Right now, everyone is just ironing out the details.

    We shall see. the 95% pf the Marine Corps who are against it could win out yet, especially if the Navy and Army figures are anywhere near that.........

    You are grasping at straws at this point. Seriously a show of hands at town hall style meetings is not enough to claim that 95% of Marine Corps are against it.

    What about the Pentagon survey which showed that most of the armed forces don't care and that a repeal of the policy would likely not hurt our current war efforts?

    For somebody who claimed they would be on board for this policy to be repealed if the troops didn't mind, you changed your tune rather quickly.

    Whatever happened to the Navy Pride "If the military is ok with it, I'm ok with it"? Singing a different tune now Navy? Why am I surprised? Actually I'm not.

    What did you expect from the most anti-gay person on this board?

    I don't think any other poster on this board is still against repealing the policy. NP is the last one and his reasoning for it is pretty damn weak.

    I proved the 95% in the Marines and the study for from the other services won't be available until Dec 17........We shall see what it says......It has to really torque your jaws that Hussein Obama your hero who says he is for repeal is fighting repeal with his justice Department......I love it...........

    Can you read, you called me a liar when I said that the Commandant of the Marines said that 95% of his marines were against it and I proved you were wrong.....You owe me and apology for that............Not sure how you get away with it either..

    Re: Supreme Court: "Don't Ask Don't Tell" OK during appeal.

    This might become one of the more interesting lame-duck Congress issues. As I understand it, a change in this policy can occur one of two ways:
    1) The current lawsuit, which I have no idea how long could drag out, with appeals after there's a decision; and/or
    2) Congress changes the policy. I would not expect that after the new Congress is sworn in, so if it is going to happen, it'll have to be soon.

    I'm not knocking the incoming Republicans in that it is not likely to be an issue they take up. That's just the way politics are on this issue. But it also would make it forefront with the lame duck session, and should the Dems not push it vigorously now, I suspect they will have a very upset constituency.

    As I have noted in other threads, my personal opinion is to just get it done. And I am otherwise uber-Conservative ex-military, although like many, with strong Libertarian leanings on social issues. Drugs and sex ... don't hurt anybody and its OK.
