    Discrimination, hatred and bigotry have been around for a long time in one form or another. However, any freedom loving America will NEVER just "get used to it".

    Because DADT is a military issue, not a civilian issue. Whether or not it is repealed doesn't affect anyone outside the military. LGBT which represents a very small percentage of the population are going to have to live with it if they want to enlist.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Considering that most of those that identify as Democrats want to see DADT repealed, even more than Republicans, I don't see how he can actually believe what he posted.

    Poll: Two out of three say repeal don’t ask, don’t tell – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    According to the Gallup poll, more than eight out of ten Democrats and seven out of ten independent voters support repealing the measure, with Republicans split on the issue.

    Tim-






    When a super-majority of Americans, a majority of Conservatives, half the Republicans, close to all of the Democrats, and 70% of Independents support repealing some legislation, there's absolutely no excuse for a Democratic President who has the House, Senate and Administration.

    This was especially interesting:



    Obama's legislative agenda, both in what he advocates, and what the Democrats support, leaves MUCH to be desired from the American people, let alone his own damn base that elected him.

    I know a lot of Obama supporters. About 50% of them say they're voting independent in 2012.

    If I were the President or a Democratic Congressman I honestly don't think I could orchestrate a more effective plan to lose me the reelection/my seat than what Obama and the Democrats are doing, not just on Don't Ask Don't Tell, but on their entire legislative agenda.

    Don't you ever get tired of being so rhetorical? I mean, you folks have used this rhetoric for so long now that it really, (and I mean this sincerely) means nothing anymore. You're not scaring anyone DisneyDude. You're the victim of a very bad joke...

    where were you when Obama said we white folks were typically racist?

    Where were you when Biden suggested that obama was articulate for a black man?

    Where were you when Obama stated marriage is between a man and a woman?

    Where were you when Obama stated his support for DOMA?
