Seen On Another Blog

Ah, man... I always did want to live under THIS administration. I miss the West Wing.

h/t to Crystal, at Perspective. She found the link at an Andrew Sullivan blog post, whom I read too. Go read her post because she has links to other articles and the transcript of the West Wing scene.

I really do think this is a policy that needs to be changed, like NOW! It's shameful that truly capable, patriotic and qualified Americans are discharged from the military because of their sexual orientation.

I could be wrong, but I don't think this disqualified people from serving in WWII. I believe that at the time they were taking pretty much any warm body they could get.

Seriously speaking, they are citizens of this country. Our armed services protect us all. They have just as much of a right to defend this country as anyone else.

Of course, if they ever lifted "Don't ask, don't tell," and they re-instituted the draft, people might miss the loophole.

I bet you're right and they were taking every body they could during the war. I've actually never studied WWII history as well as I should have.

I really get upset when it comes to how GBLT people are treated in this country. It hurts to see them treated so badly by Christians. My mom and I were talking about some of her friends today who hold onto such old, archaic prejudices and sad it is. (I'm lucky for having parents of that generation who are so open minded and tolerant.)

I wonder if they would re-institute the draft?

Man, I'm way too tired tonight to make any sense, Jeff.

I've always said in so many words that "The Blessed Trinity" as far as I'm concerned could never accept two wrongs as making "One Right" but that's only my opinion and as far as sinner vic is concerned, he would love to debate "IT" and make a joke of the hole issue but while I'm still in charge of this flesh, he's going to have to bind his cells, destroy this world or have me locked UP in an asylum and I'm sure that many of today's so called Christians would be happy if that was done!

Does that make any sense?

Today's "Gays" Army Marching Song!

Left, Right, Left, Right,

I don't know but I've been told,

That our ancestors thoughts are getting old.

We don't know for sure cause we weren't there,

But these old thinkers were a bunch of "Squares"

Left, Right, Left, Right!
