Resident cat on Rehoboth Boardwalk this morning.
A federal judge yesterday ruled that the 17 year old "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy is unconstitutional and should be discontinued immediately.
This is good news. The bad news is that the justice department of the Obama administration will appeal this decision.
This is the administration of the same Barack Obama that pledged during this campaign to do all he could to end the discriminatory "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.
Does it sound like Barack Obama said one thing during his campaign but is now acting differently once he is in power? If you thought that, you would be right.
What was the campaign slogan? "Change That You Can Believe In?" Well, guess what? That was a lie.
I am profoundly disappointed in President Obama and his lack of leadership on this issue.
Vice President Joe Biden is running around the country telling those of us unenthusiastic Democratic voters to "stop whining and buck up." Biden is a jerk.
Susan Collins gets on the Senate floor and tries to have it both ways by saying she believes in the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" but has to vote against a bill to "discuss" the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell", because it doesn't permit amendments. Collins is a jerk.
This is what is going to happen. Eventually "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" will be reversed. It is going to happen.
As more gays and lesbians come out of the closet and those in power realize that gays aren't those extreme examples seen in gay pride parades like nuns on roller-skates and gyrating men in thongs, they will see that gays like me are not a threat to their lifestyle. Being gay isn't contagious.
I'll vote this November. I'll probably vote for Democratic. I cannot see voting for a nut bag like Christine O'Donnell.
One thing is for sure, I'll never vote for Obama again. He's just another lying politician (like Clinton) who takes the gay vote for granted.
Lying has consequences. Got that Joe Biden?
