    Not to mention, we are supposed to live in the greatest, most free country in the world, yet we still have this policy that promotes intolerance and discrimination. That looks really bad on our country.
    I served in the military from 1970-1976 so I have a pretty good idea about standing watch. There are a lot of things that some found discriminatory in the military and when there was a draft they may have had a point but not with the all volunteer military. No one is forcing anyone to enlist.

    I'm going to ask you for the last time what the hell that has to do with whether or not DADT should remain American policy.

    Are you going to actually argue a point, or just keep psychoanalyzing people? Trying sticking to the issue, honey.

    Could be, so provide bonuses to fill those fields.

    Personally, I think Scott Brown will be the deciding vote on this issue. With his support, we would be only 1 vote shy of repeal. That means the entire weight will be falling on Sen. Joe Manchin's shoulders. If the stand alone bill gets passed by the House in time, then it would still be anyone's game.

    Because we are recovering from one of the worst recessions in American history and focus is on economic issues rather than social issues. Was that a serious question?

    Oh...I have plenty of God in my life....and the God that I worship does not preach hatred, bigotry and intolerance. In fact, he taught the exact opposite. Perahps it is you who needs a little God in your life.

    I think that's true to a point but taking away the economic issues will still not make this a much bigger issue which touches every single person in America, it would only touch those who are in or are part of an active military family.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed 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.
