Don't ask dont tell repeal passes House and goes to Senate


I hope the Senate can get a yes vote before they "go home".  250 to 175 moves bill along.

Yeah, sucks that Christmas gets in the way of peoples lives. Especially politicians.

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,
While hammers fell like ringing bells
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
In hollow halls beneath the fells.

For ancient king and elvish lord
There many a gloaming golden hoard
They shaped and wrought, and light they caught
To hide in gems on hilt of sword.
- J.R.R. Tolkien

Yes, and this morning, Joe Scarborough, who's a Republican, was extemely angry at both Demint and Kyle by their alleging that Reid was being "sacriligious" by having to go back to work on the week after Christmas, to use Kyle's word.

Gotta fully honor those repackaged Pagan Holidays you know.

Democrats think the glass is half full.
Republicans think the glass is theirs.
Libertarians want to break the glass, because they think a conspiracy created it.

Yeah, make sure we trample the secular and pagan Christmas every year in the name of Jesus. Cuz' here in 'merica you can believer whatever you want, less'n you git in the way o' Jesus lovin'.

Listening to a couple of different TV news channels last night you would think that December 15 was Christmas.  As of yesterday there was 10 days to Christmas.  Now nine and counting.  Then the days between holidays and Congress doesn't actually change till January 5, 2011.


Any excuse for some who are suppose to represent "the people" to not do their jobs.  Stall say no... the party of GO-P.

Repealed by the House.  Does the Senate have any balls (or ovaries)?


 


Apparently 70% of active military are sufficiently secure in their own personhood that gay compadres don't threaten them.  Is the Senate able to say the same thing.  

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize what you heard was not what I meant...

I know, right?  They work, what, five days out of the year (note:  somewhat facetious tone here)?  Those poor, poor politicians -- they sit on their asses while they're on the job, then go home and sit on their asses.  They need some vacation time!  [/sarcasm]

Once they stop tapping feet in the bathroom stalls, they'll let you know. :D

Knock and the door shall open.  It's not my fault if you don't like the decor.

"Don't Ask, Don't Tell' clears hurdle in Senate


A Senate vote Saturday cleared the way for final passage of a bill to end the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, putting the long campaign to end the ban on gay men and lesbians close to its conclusion.

Senators voted 63 to 33 to proceed with debate on the bill, and a final vote is scheduled for 3 p.m. With the lobsided procedural vote, the likelihood that the ban will be repealed is very high.



Continued at link.


Six Republicans voted to proceed with the debate on DADT.
