    Re: DADT cloture passes

    Two questions; Now do any of the people that got the boot because they told get the option of going back into the military?

    Question number two…Who was that old dude in the Ancient Navy attire, that jumped off of the University Bridge in Seattle right after the vote?

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    It passed the Senate vote. It will go to the President's desk and he will sign it. Then it has to be signed by the Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Then the military has 60 days to make preparations to implement repeal.

    They can re-enlist after the 60 days are up.

    A guy who clearly is no psychic.

    I believe it will depend on the re-enlistment code they received when they got their discharge and the type of discharge received. Most DADT discharges where honorable discharges, and I think those would be able to re-enlist. Best website to watch for those type details: Servicemembers Legal Defense Network

    Don't be picking on NP too hard, he really is a great guy.

    In the whole scheme of things this will not have any affect on my day to day life. Looking at the bigger picture it is really doubtful to effect the world.

    Some were getting diarrhea over this but they were the same ones who filled their bathtubs with water for Y2K.
