What to expect in the 'don't ask, don't tell' Senate hearings

Washington (CNN) - One of the most bitterly contested issues facing the soon-to-be adjourned Congress takes center stage this week when military leadership is called to testify about repealing the military prohibition on openly gay troops serving.

And the warning shots have already been fired.

    We expect to see this silly crap REPEALED. That's what we expect.

    So, NO to repealing DADT even thought the Servicemembers and the public support the repeal, and
    NO to passing the START treaty, even though most who are qualified and experienced, both past Republican and
    Democrats note the importance of maintaining oversight and cooperation with Russia for the security of the Nation, but
    Kyl thinks there "are more important things to do". Would that be because Reublicans have done nothing the
    last two years?, and
    No to extending unemployment benefits, but yes to tax cuts for the wealthy,
    What exactly happened to the Republicans saying "we will listen to the American people"?
    Looks to me like the American people have "been had" again and we are going to pay a heavy price.

    The only excuse not to repeal DADT now is a long-held ancient prejudice. I'm hoping that new members of Congress, such as Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois, realize that such rules could have ended their military careers as well if they had chosen to come out.

    What toi expect? Mavericky mcnasty to flip flop on what he said before and what he says/thinks now.
    More very much needed linguists to be thrown out of the Armed Forces because of the rethug and anyone else who is a homophobe.
    Justy make sure we don't have to hear/read about what's he face who "has a friend who chose to be gay". I wonder if they are still friends two years later.
