    I didn't say it was a desire. I said I would do it.

    If she, you know, asked me to or something.

    I think he's wondering how in the hell it would even be possible, without surgical modifications beyond the level we can accomplish at this time (that I am aware of, at least)...

    dadt's movement today, fyi:

    we all saw yesterday the quite surprising development that saw reid surrender on the omnibus, removing the threat of hot warfare which would surely see dadt (and dream and start) held hostage

    reid's removing that foul fight off his floor was sposed to clear the way

    but today the party of no has found a new brouhaha---start

    start passed procedurals wednesday with the exact 67 a treaty needs to be ratified

    however, marverick mccain and limber lindsey graham, two of the 67, are this morning all a-moan

    their hassle is harry's pushing dream and dadt up for passage saturday morning, or so reid says

    it's all very political, bear with me

    mccain and graham are trashing it thus: start is serious business, it deserves debate and airing, harry's hustling these openly political blueprints is, well:

    “The talks are lines that if you were serious about foreign policy, we would focus on it in a serious way,” said Graham. “And the idea of having a debate on a major treaty regarding nuclear arms between now and Christmas and dealing with the 9/11 bill, the DREAM Act, repealing ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ with no amendments is inconsistent with that.”
    you all know mccain

    but lindsey, who's sposed to be so limp wristed, was republican point man for 2 years on TWO of our nation's most hi profile politicals---energy and immigration

    and the deliberate drawler dealt death to both, to the great satisfaction of lipton lovers everywhere

    ie, i would not take the threats of these two men too lightly

    it very well might be that harry (on behalf of whom) is gonna have to choose between his dadt and his start

    by all accounts, dream is a dreary load

    now, what's quite odd in all this is how obama has stated repeatedly that start is his top priority in the duck

    it doesn't make sense, as that particular parlay with putin is easy pickings in the spring, boehner's house is not needed for ratification, republicans led by lugar are eager, all they demand is open air

    but it is what it is, obama had his reasons

    I personally think that the DADT needs to be ammended, NOT appealed! If it does get completely appealed, there's going to be violence and diffraction within every area of the military.

    Homosexuality is NOT that widely accepted within our society yet. Let's just keep it under the radar and act like we don't see the slip hanging, even if it IS hanging just a tad...

    All evidence points to this not being the case. It has not happened in other militaries that have made the change. No one has yet to point to any actual positive evidence it will happen. It is an emotional fear, nothing more.

    I don't agree. Even 20 years ago you might have had a point about homosexuality being accepted, but I don't think you do today. Polling on the issue suggests strongly that gays are fairly well accepted these days.

    Both gays and transgenders are still being openly attacked in broad daylight on our city streets! They remain large targets for employment discrimination.

    As a society, we've made some improvement of note. However, we're still nowhere near the finishline. We're not even at the midpoint, yet.

    Do you have any idea about the actual depths of ignorance concerning gender variance and sexual orientation within this country?

    Not to mention the fact that many of our male youth join the military for confirmation of manhood, development of higher self-esteem, and improvement upon self-identity imagery.

    Fewer enlistees will enlist due to fear of proximity with gays because as we all know, it easily rubs off!
