I wouldn’t hold my breath on this one. The republicans vowed before the election that they would not support any legislation put forward by the democrats. The majority of republicans don’t support a reversal of the ban anyway. It is their goal to bring down the current administration, they had absolutely no intention of bipartisanship but have become arguably the most obstructive party in history. This has a lot more to do with a black man occupying the White House than anything else. Racism is still alive and well in America and it thrives in the republican party and in their tea bagger offshoot.
Lieberman’s saying they have the votes for cloture if the Republicans get their debate. We’ll see…
Extremely well said Robert. You, of course, are right. I have no doubt this vote will fail and ignorance will prevail in the US another day.
Off again on again, off again on again. Off. On. Off. On. I feel like I’m staring into a strobe light.
If they are going to do it, they’d better do it quick before the Republicans come in. All this pussy footing around ain’t gonna cut it!
If some soldiers don’t want to serve with gay soldiers they shouldn’t be in the army at all. In fact, they shouldn’t be in he US at all; the US is there to defend liberty, at least in theory (well, not only in theory, it’s made extreme progress in that direction throughout its entire existence).
Only in bigoted ultra-right-wing conservative pricks called the “Republican Tea bagging Christian Taliban party of America”!!!!
Also remember it was the Democrats under Bill Clinton that introduced DADT and DOMA in the mid 1990′s anyway – so the Democrats have NO INTENTION of really repealing any law because they were the exact same people who introduced the bigoted laws in the first place!!!!
They were the exact ones who started this mess that we are currently in!!!!
It gives people a false sense of security. They just like people to think that they are repealing the law, when all they are doing is just turning light on and off, on and off and on and off it goes!!!
It is 2010 lets rip-up both DOMA and DADT laws to the dust bin of history for good people. And by the way weren’t both DADT and DOMA struck-down as “grossly unconstitutional” anyway by several so-called ACTIVIST judges a couple of months back??????
What happens now – Are we doomed???
Glad I am an Australian citizen; American politicians including Obama are such lying deceptive assholes – Obama is a typical black c*nt!!!!
The Simpsons have taught me well about Americans and how a lot of them are so dumb to the point they will be brainwashed to believe anything that someone says!!!!
These words from a quote on one episode of the Simpsons:
“Illiterate tax-cheating, wife-swapping, pot-smoking, spend-o-crat” by radio host Birch Barlow (“Sideshow Bob Roberts,”) talking about Diamond Joe Quimby who is a Democrat.
Wiki-leaks told me everything that I already did know – plus Brad Manning as well!!!!!
It is long overdue to:
“FREE BRAD MANNING NOW!!!!!!!”
Land of the free my arse!!!!
