It has been shown empircally that white judges are more likely to sentence black people and give them harsher sentences. It has been shown empiraclly that white teachers treat black students differently than white students. It isn't "racism" so much as an unconcious response to a group that they have been psychologically primed to view as more threatening.
    I honestly can say this is the largest amount of tripe I've seen since, well a few days actually. Let's go to the "Excuse counter for Obama" and see what your excuses were

    Excuse counter:

    1. sociologically verified by evidence (no source)
    2. it's the media's fault and black people don't know they're doing it
    3. empirically - psychiatrists are racists (no source)
    4. empirically - white judges are racists (no source)
    5. empirically - white teachers are racists (no source)
    6. Obama isn't racist - he's just conditioned that way by white people

    All that's missing is "It's Bush's fault" or "empirically, Bush is a racist" (no source).
    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.

    Your point is well taken, but I don't completely agree. What is the universe of possibilities?

    1. Your victory. 2. Your opponent's victory. 3. Your defeat. 4. Your opponent's defeat. 5. Stalemate.

    If you stop your opponent from winning there are two possible results. One result is certain, i.e., you avoid defeat. The flip side is uncertain, i.e., either stalemate or victory or combination of the two.

    Victory usually requires a great degree of effort. Stalemate doesn't require the same level of effort.

    Compare WWII with the Korean War.

    I am still waiting for you or anyone else here that isn't in the mlitary to explain why this issue is so important to you. Seems that the military disagrees with you.

    That last bit in the article is the kicker:

Members of Congress and the new Commander-in-Chief need to take this issue seriously, and see to it that activists demanding repeal of the law do not win.

    That's the point though - that's not good enough for them. They have to impose their civillian activist agenda on the military. The minority always wins.

    that seems to be the case with just about everything else including economic issues as well. there are leftists here as well disguised as freedom loving Americans but their agenda is clear, they are radical activists determined to impose their agenda on the rest of us.
