Well, it passed and got signed.


Although I'm psyched there's been another step forward in equality, "the right to be killed in a desert for no meaningful reason" doesn't exactly thrill me.

Exactly. I wish to hell DREAM had been passed as well.

I really do think it is a big deal as far as equality goes.  I am kind of surprised the republicans didn't hold things up, but I suppose closing one of the loopholes to get out of the army was important enough for them to choose not to do so.

One man's cynicism is another man's truth...or something to that effect.

I'm sure the Republican's roll over on this was dead-horse related, given that the American public really has no issue with this in majority.

Huh? explain that one to me? As far as I could tell from the news I read, the DADT rule is no more, and that's good, right? Did they slip in something devious?

I believe LMNO is saying that joining the military is slightly less profitable than cheating a Vegas casino.

I think it has more to do with the court case that's going through the system.  Lets them look like they're in control instead of having the courts force them to be decent.

Sitting around on his fat arse, being an opinionated blowhard? Call that work? I can do that all day long, standing on my head.
