'Don't ask, don't tell': The reality of repeal

Washington (CNN) - It's not if, but when, the law banning openly gay men and lesbians from serving in the military will be repealed, say advocates and top administration officials.

Then it's a question of how.

    Seems to me the "how' is the easy part. Repeal the law and then follow the military code of honor and truth. Done.

    Basically, the US government is denying an entire segment of the population, their basic human rights. That is despicable, and unconstitutional, and the courts have said it is unconstitutional.

    Repeal that stupidity.

    When I was stationed in the ROK back in the 1980's, I had a homosexual roommate.

    Nothing happened. No issues. We both respected each other. Two men living in a 10×10 room. One hetrosexual and one homosexual.... no issues.

    I gotta wonder if they chose that picture as if to imply that the dude looking at his muddy shoe like it's all yuckies is the gay one...

    Anyway, it's just a matter of time....just like the inevitable demographic shift that will take away white majority. Seething yet, conservatives? Reality and the world WILL march on without you, you know. If you look at history, it's done so every time.
