Uh, Congress?This could be resolved so quick, don't understand why he just doesn't do it. There is simply no reason for it.
Yes, it is. The Republicans will block ANYTHING Obama wants to do. They don't care who they hurt as long as he gets nothing done. They are interested in themselves, not the United States of America or it's people. They have proven that so many times over, I can't believe anyone still votes for them. Does no one remember Karl Rove or the Bush administration? It's only been 10 months.
He can effectively end it with an executive order to ban its provisions.Uh, Congress?
It would make it through the House no problem, and Obama would of course sign it, but I think the senate is where it would run into roadblocks. Remember, we don't really have 60 senators thanks to a few DINOs and without 60 for cloture, the GOP will filibuster anything.
I am not sure about that. He could easily make a chance instantly, after a year or so make it law through congress when there is evidence that the negative effects are non-existent.Didn't he state before he wanted it in law so that the next president can't just easily undo the order?
I would suggest then that the problem is with these soldiers, not their potential gay comrades.
This has been empirically disproven. There are also soldiers that hate blacks and hispanics, not everyday we hear about random private going on a racist killing spree. The fact is, we are one of the last militaries to not allow non-heterosexuals the opportunity to serve openly and the more concerning fact is the high percentage of translators we lose because of this policy.
There are none. It's a none issue all together. Indeed - 'Don't Ask' should remain - someones sexuality is fundamentally irrelevant for their ability to do a job. Why would one ask at all?
I don't believe that was the point being made, more that what defines bigotry. Whatever the case is, it does not matter. If being a bigot prevents you from doing your job, you should be fired. As opposed to, because you are a homosexual, you should be fired.Do you really think that those who are serving in the closet are suddenly gonna start beating up others now that they are free to be themselves?
Since those defending the status quo have reason to be violent. Once again, you wanna cite examples.Seems to me, Gays in general at protests, are the ones that became violent...
California elections, with California Proposition 8 was the center of violence, and threats made by the gay community agains the Mormons and others.I don't believe that was the point being made, more that what defines bigotry.
