    A good chance of passing, definitely, but I wouldn't put it past GOP senators to say they're in favor of something, and say "oh I swear I'm only voting against it for procedural/whateverbull****Ijustmadeup reasons", and then when it comes time they go lock-step with their compatriots.

    We CANNOT have men publicly kissing one another or publicly walking hand in hand while in the militatry!

    Now, if we should ever NOT need a military then, whatever they want to is just fine with me...

    Why can't we?

    Do you support straight soldiers walking around holding hands and kissing in public while in the military?

    So long as they can do the job I'm paying them to do, then I don't give a **** what they do in their private life (well so long as it isn't too illegal...like trafficking orphans or something like that).

    If heterosexuals are allowed to do it, then homosexuals should be allowed to do it as well. That said, I am pretty sure that PDA is strongly discouraged among straight folk while actively serving in the military, and as long as that is the case, then I think homosexuals are no more likely to break that taboo than heterosexuals.

    Now, granted, I left the Navy decades ago, and things might have changed. We were told no signs of affection while in uniform, except the obvious cases of departure/returns from tours of duty.

    It's only regulation in the Marine Corps(I think...just one branch anyway), but strongly frowned upon in all. The DoD report actually talks about PDAs a bit.

    You did not know that Kagan would have to recuse yourself, but still feel qualified to make a prediction despite showing a lack of knowledge of SCOTUS?
