    Meanwhile, the real survey came back with very different results. Shocking.

    Well the House is set to vote either tomorrow or Thursday on the stand alone bill. The next 2 days will mark the fate of DADT repeal. If it does pass on Wednesday, then Reid may extend the session past the weekend so that the Senate can debate and vote on it. The stand alone bill allegedly has the support of a filibuster proof majority in the Senate. You couldn't possibly cut it any closer than this.

    At this point I mostly want to see it repealed just to spite NP.

    I hope a stand alone bill to repeal DADT passes, and I hope that SOB Obama doesn't get any credit for it.

    Guess what? If they repeal DADT and they make unwanted sexual advances, they won't get an honorable discharge still.

    I don't think violence is a very good way to resolve this.

    What about straight soldiers who make unwanted advances against women?

    I think it's an interesting social experiment as to how influenced by peer pressure young males are. Apparently a lot of you compare the commandants "survey" with the real one.
