How justifiable is it? So you get majority vote but still for some stupid reason there is a predetermined number of votes you need to get and you don’t get it, result, the entire thing is struck down? I mean, seriously. Its a sweeping majority. Why 60?
It might look pretty lame and ignorant to most political junkies, me asking this. But to my defense, I do not follow politics. And after today it reinforced the fact that I have not missed much by not following politics.
Senators voted ‘maybe’. How could they. If you are so indecisive then you are not fit to be senators. In a voting of ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ you came up with a ‘Maybe’. It seems like these senators are playing with thousands of people’s emotions and sentiments. “Lets vote ‘Maybe’ and then sit back and watch the fun.” Thats pathetic.
At times I think, if we change our view point, maybe DADT won’t hurt that bad.
At this current situation, LGBT people cannot serve in the military openly. So what happens if all the LGBT people just stop enrolling? The entire US Military would be of straight guys and girls. At a time when the nation is at war with two countries, let all the straight people go and fight and kill themselves. All the gays, can safely stay cuddled up at home and watch reruns of Queer As Folk.
In other words, the US Government and Military wants the straights to fight for us and make our lives easy and secure. So that we can sleep in peace at night. Maybe thats a good thing. Its time they work for us.
Now thats comforting.
