Senate Blocks Repeal Of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

| Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaLady GaGa

WTF!

This is sad.

Even after Lady Gaga’s efforts to persuade congressmen to vote in favor of repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the senate shot it down after the house passed it.

What’s truly sad is that this bill would not even directly repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” It just “authorizes President Obama to lift the policy if the Pentagon determines that doing so will not damage military morale or discipline.”

One difficulty with this bill (although it shouldn’t be a problem) is that it was not just about “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” There was a provision in it that would allow children brought to this country illegally by their parents to qualify for citizenship. We support this section of this bill, but apparently some senators enjoy denying children privileges they shouldn’t have to fight for.

Senators who voted against this bill and yet still claim to “support the troops” are hypocrites. If you can’t honor men and women serving their country by offering them equal rights in the military, you should step down from your position and let someone who isn’t corrupted by personal phobias and biases take your place.

    For one thing, that's a really sneaky rider and had no business on the bill. Two, why the fuck would congress care about what Lady gaga has to say? Really?



  2. 2

    Even after Lady Gaga’s efforts to persuade congressmen to vote in favor of repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the senate shot it down after the house passed it.

    GIRL IT SOUNDS LIKE A 15 YEAR OLD WROTE THAT… LOL
    YOU REALLY THINK BECAUSE LADY GAGA MADE A SPEECH THAT SHE ALONE WOULD BE POWERFUL ENOUGH TO SWAY A SENATE DECISION….
    CHILD PLEASE….. !



  3. 3

    Sorry Perez, Gaga is not God, but the Senate people who voted nay are idiots.



  4. 4

    lmao.. no one cares what Lady GaGa thinks.. she probably HURT the cause.



  5. 5

    You are kidding right? Lady Ga Ga is a pop star making millions. She's on the right track with her opinion, but she is not the voice of America. For God's sake.

    America needs to speak up. Not one pop star. I'm sick and tired of celebs thinkings they rule the world so much anything they say is the gospel. Please, give me a break.

    She's paid way too much for what she does, as are most stars. If they are really in the real world, they'd give most of their money away to help this country in that way. No one needs to make millions a year when people are starving. It's not right, and that makes anything they say hypocritical.

    Don't you get that? Does anyone get that?



  6. 6

    Wait– even AFTER comments from Lady Gaga, the Senate shot it down? you mean the Senate wasn't swayed by the ramblings of a coked up Pop Star? You live in delusional world, Perez…



  7. 7

    I do not support illlegals bringing their kids here and making them automatic citizens. They need to earn the right to live here, speak english and become legal.



  8. 8

    No one in congress gives a rats ass what Lady Gaga thinks you stupid fucking Moron…Her speech was a joke and so is she. wearing that stupid get up who else but you take her seriously.



  9. 9

    LMAO

    good there is no reason to lift it. The idea that gays don't have equal rights to join the military is stupid. Sexual orientation isn't factored in when you enlist in that they don't ask you. There are many reasons one would be disqualified or discharged. being gays is one. There is a reason for that "Moral". Plain and simple.

    Now please shut the fuck up!!!



  10. 10

    Hahahaha LOL's…….Lady Tranny aka "Lady" (using the term loosely) Gaga SUCKS and I hate illegals.



  11. 11

    The kicker is that I'm sure half of the Senators that voted against it are probably closeted Homosexuals themselves! GTFOH with that. Totally disgusted with the political process these days



  12. 12

    This bill didnt pass because your Democratic leadership added it to a bill at the last minute. We are still waiting for the surveys the military is filling out, and once we get them back it will be debated like it should be. Blame goes to Harry Reid.



  13. 13

    Fruit Soldiers will be re-hemming pant lines, adding sequins to their jackets and putting sandpaper to their leather boots to make them suede. This isn't Project Pakastanway



  14. 14

    "would allow children brought to this country ILLEGALLY by their parents to qualify for citizenship"

    "Illegal" means something! Thank goodness amnesty was rejected! This is NOT what Americans want!



  15. 15

    The provision regarding illegal children having citizenship has nothing to do with DADT so clearly the bill is not simply about DADT. And Perez, if children of illegal immigrants are granted citizenship while their parents are not, then what? They're left alone in a foreign country without their parents? Yeah, that sounds like a solid plan.



  16. 16

    WITH FREAKS LIKE LADY GAGA SCARING THEM ALL AWAY ARE YOU SURPRISED? PEOPLE LIKE HER AND YOU ARE THE WHOLE REASON PEOPLE HATE GAYS.



  17. 17

    Ha! As if that tranny's "efforts" made any difference either way. Stop deluding yourself Methface Mario…



  18. 18

    "Even after Lady Gaga's efforts…." — oh, god, I almost peed myself. Like she has great influence on the US Senate. LOL.



  19. 19

    "If you can’t honor men and women serving their country by offering them equal rights in the military, you should step down from your position and let someone who isn’t corrupted by personal phobias and biases take your place"

    So true.. most of our representatives and senators need to be replaced! we should probably just get rid of them altogether… that would save a TON of money just by not having to pay their salaries just to have them make decisions that their constituents don't even agree with!



  20. 20

    All I can say is thank God for Republicans in the Senate who put a stop to this. Thank u republicans for saving this country from the abomination known as this bill.



  21. 21

    Thank God they shot this bill down….I am absolutely NOT okay with that "provision" and think in the long run its a much bigger issue than DADT. Absolutely ridiculous.



  22. 22

    WHAT!!!! The great Gentleman GaGa couldn't get it done. I guess there just are not enough gay men and middle aged housewives to force this issue. So sad, and here I thought she was so influential.



  23. 23

    Thank God!!! The last thing we need is a couple guys in a foxhole pounding each other in the arse!!!



  24. 24

    Previous commenters (and I'm sure following ones as well) need to wake up. Of course people like Lady Gaga and other celebrities think their word is gospel- because it is. You posting on and reading Perez Hilton is a main fact in this argument. You want to read about celebrities, and whether you consciously do it or not, you base 90% of your decisions on what they do. And you will argue that because most people like to think they're "original" but you're not.

    If a celeb. like Lady Gaga- who MILLIONS of people love and idolize is against a certain bill, sure the Senate may not give two craps, but she's using her celebrity to promote awareness of a cause she is passionate about. I wonder how many people would have called/e-mailed/faxed or helped persuade in any way for the repeal of DADT if Gaga has NOT made such a big deal about it. I doubt half as much would not have even known.



  25. 25

    Don't Ask Don't Tell should be repealed, but children whose parents sneak them into the country ILLEGALLY should not be granted citizenship!!!



  26. 26

    Actually having Lady Gaga trying to act political probably HELPED get it turned down…If you want to play the political game you have to know how to play. First on the list, learn how to dress properly. If you want to be taken seriously.



  27. 27

    when did this sight become about gay pride and gay rights and less and less about celebrity gossip.. I for one am done with it



  28. 28

    I just cannot imagine how the Senate could resist an appeal from Lady Gaga of all people! What's this world coming to?



  29. 29

    God the pathetic bigoted 70 year old Republicans that voted against repealing DADT need to realize they are just delaying the inevitavle. It's 2010, not 1960 in Selma Alabama. This will get overturned, gay marriage will become an accepted norm, and 50 years from now future generations will think a great deal of us were ignorant bastards just like the people that opposed the civil rights movement. This is the last glass ceiling that needs to be broken. And Lady GaGa doesn't need to be mentioned in every fucking post!



  30. 30

    Dude there is more to it than just that. Changes will take place but it will not happen in one sweep and again - that should be up to the military to handle.



  31. 31

    Very well said Perez. It's a real shame that you have these republicans that stick by these ridiculous policies when the majority of your country (75%) say that openly gay/lesbian people should be allowed to serve their country. How is this fair? Let's hope for another opportunity to repeal this terrible policy!



  32. 32

    Serve your fucking country with honor like the rest of our soldiers. You don't have to dance around in miniskirts to lady gaga out in the middle of Iraq. "Boohoo we can't tell people we're gay". Like they don't fucking know… shut up about this already, they allow your gay ass to serve, that should be enough.



  33. 33

    Oh come on Perez! That little provision had no business being on the bill in the first place. Illegals should not be allowed to qualify for citizenship…………they are ILLEGAL! ~regardless if they are adults or children. I do think that the "Don't ask, Don't Tell" Policy should go, but not our taxpayers funding more illegals in our country. Sorry



  34. 34

    I'm not sure if you're blinded by your affinity for Lady GaGa or your left-wing views, but you sound uneducated and unversed in American politics. Think before you type, Perez. Allowing all children to enter this country would cause absolute chaos. Children don't watch themselves. The parents would need to be granted permission to remain on American soil to foster the child which would eventually lead to the demolition of the American economy. Second of all, why would a political figure in their right mind ever take advice from Lady GaGa regarding politics?



  35. 35

    Illegal Immigrants have no place getting anything. It would just promote them to hop the fence before she gives birth even more.



  36. 36

    hahahahahahaahah you lost fucker!

    stop whining….no one needs to know that you like dick…keep that in the privacy of your home.



  37. 37

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal
    that's exactly what the bill was trying to do. Now, even is they work had and have every reason to earn it, they can't.

    Racist Idiot!



  38. 38

    Re: zoozujean – OK, your a fucking moron. I NEVER base my actions on what some celeb says. Are you kidding me. Your the target for them, someone who does not think for themselves and needs help making decisions. I can't believe you actually think 90% of people follow these clowns. And for proof your an idiot, check the news to see if this bill passed, which, if you can read, you already know it didn't. Obviously your wrong or that 90% would have prevailed. Get a clue.

    What people do behind closed doors is “““ NO ONES fucking business!!! YO!!!



  40. 40

    I don't agree with DADT, I think that everyone willing to die for this country should be able to do so. Its a great honour to die and fight for the country you love. Not everyone is willing to do so. On the other hand i understand why people don't want DADT to pass. You obviously don't. Your opinon is obviously biased. I'm not saying its right but I believe trying to understand from the opponents point of view is helpful because it can help you understand why they don't want it. Not everyone who is for DADT is a homophobic. Most of the people in my family have served in our Military and some of them agree with DADT and some don't. I can understand why people like DADT. Why can't you? Being Biased makes you blind.



  41. 41

    Lady Gaga? You are fucking joking right?



  42. 42

    also you cant sneak your kids in this country and have them claim citizenship
    THATS FUCKING ILLEGAL
    whats with you and letting people get away with shit
    who the fuck does it help
    there are legal ways to become citizens of this country, if you dont want to do it the legal way then STAY OUT



  43. 43

    RepubliKKKans are huge failures and the cause of most the problems we are now having in this country. Lady Gaga has just as much right to run her mouth off as that quitter from Alaska. We all know RepubliKKKans have small dicks!!!!



  44. 44

    giving children of illegals the opportunity to become citizens SOUNDS good until you think for a moment(something i doubt you do much of) that those children then get to bring their parents in with them and they get to become citizens…. good for them for NOT passing dadt with this attached…. this bill should be left intact, solo, and clear cut….. ANYONE BRAVE ENOUGH TO FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY SHOULD BE ABLE TO SERVE OPENLY AND EFFECTIVELY AS THE PERSON THEY ARE….



  45. 45

    LMFAO. Why would the government listen to Lady Gaga, a young pop star who has recently claimed that she still uses cocaine?
    Being in the military is a job and at your job you don't walk around telling everyone your sexuality.
    IF they did repeal don't ask, don't tell, people would getting beaten left and right..so then do you house all the homosexuals together? That's like putting men and women in the same barracks. I don't care if you are homosexual or not, why do homosexuals feel the need to let everyone know?



  46. 46

    Once again Harry, Nancy and Obama are playing politics with a standard defense spending bill. This money is used to pay benefits and bonuses to our dedicated, poorly compensated military men and women. Reid is trying to win reelection in Nevada so he injects the Dream Act and the DADT repeal in this standard defense bill to garner votes from the Latino and gay community. What a PIG(I can smell him in Minnesota)…..he is just using these groups to save his sorry ass. To pass the Dream Act with the repeal of DADT would be virtually impossible, due to the huge opposition to amnesty for illegals. The repeal of the DADT would however, stand the best chance of passing by itself and not commingled with controversial legislation. Harry, Nancy and Obama could care less about the gay community. Why haven't they pushed the DADT repeal sooner-like 18 months ago???? There will be plenty of time to vote on the bill before year end, after the military review. I am really curious to see how vigorous their pursuit of this repeal will be after the elections in November. Regardless of the election outcomes in November, Harry,Nancy and Obama will still be in control through mid January. After all this dynamic trio shoved a 2500 page hideous healthcare bill down our throats (that we can't afford)-I would think they could manage to put the DADT repeal to a vote by year end.



  47. 47

    lady gaga will not have influence on congressmen. she only influences the gays. sorry. she has a point but she is not the voice of all of america.



  48. 48

    The Party of "NO" strikes yet again.
    Anyone who votes Republican needs to have their head examined if they actually think the Republi-CANTS really care for their interests.

    Re: Onion – well A LOT of people called, BECAUSE OF GAGA.
    hes not saying "they didnt care about what gaga said"
    hes saying - even after gaga encouraged so many fans to call (most did call)
    they didnt give a damn about what the people thought..



  50. 50

    Re: MLE9025 – people care what Gaga says helluva lot more than they care what you say. you're a nobody, she;s a huge star.



  51. 51

    Re: LadyGuinivere – wow. your ignorant.
    children cant be blamed for what their parents did.
    i myself was brought to america when i was four, yes my parents were wrong to come into the country illigally, but its not my fault at all.
    i speak english FLUENTLY, just as good (if not better) then most americans.
    now my parents were smart, they also taught me my native language.
    but a lot of kids dont know their native language and have to suffer becasue of that.
    so if they get deported, and dont know how to speak their native language, you jsut ruined their chances of havign a life.

    sure- they shouldnt just GIVE IT away to any one.
    they should give a temporary one, that allows that child to study, and have all the rights a citizen would have.
    its called the DREAM ACT.
    if you did some research you would know a bit more about this.
    those who dont do shit lose the green card, those who graduate from a college and shit, get the permenant.
    it would actually help america.
    we want doctors, and scientists, we dont need fry cooks… we can leave that for the teenagers.



  52. 52

    It's a shame because I support LGBT rights however, I have to say the I am happy the bill was shut down because of the attachment of the DREAM act. Finally America is starting to wake up.



  53. 53

    I hope DADT is done away with, but I'd have a problem with the provision too. A child's citizenship should be based on their guardian's.



  54. 54

    Right. "Shouldn't we all be able to wear a meat dress?," Gaga asked the crowd in her rally.
    -
    And you wonder why she was ineffective? That rally was for her benefit, and no one else's.
    -
    Just what we need. A softer, more effeminate Army.



  55. 55

    I would never make decisions based on celebrity persuasion. I doubt any self-respecting person would.

    With that said, I am in agreement that DADT should be abolished. I also agree that all children should have available health care. They are the innocent ones. Being illegal is not their fault. I just don't think that making them a citizen would be the best thing, since it would just incite more chaos.



  56. 56

    HAHAHAHA!
    You seriously thought that Lady fucking Gaga making a speech was going to change ANYTHING!?
    She's a fucking pop star (and a coked out, methface one at that), not a politician. Governments like your couldn't give two shits what parasites like her think.



  57. 57

    true that Perez!



  58. 58

    Re: Wenchtits – hop the fence huh? im sure ur ancestors werent brought here in ships huh? you must be a native american….smh…idiot



  59. 59

    Re: Vinicius – VERY well said….kudos



  60. 60

    Woooww… The whole thing with DADT is to make things easier for the troops. If you have two males or females that are in the same platoon that are homosexual and care about each other in a romantic way they are MORE likely to be swayed by their romantic feelings for a person when it comes to orders.

    Also, this stuff about the Republicans being the reason our country is in such a mess. Well, its not. In case you hadn't noticed, the recession itself comes from a fall in the stock market. The worst fall since the GREAT DEPRESSION. Republicans, just like Democrats, have done what they thought best to get the country back on its feet. AND BOTH PARTIES HAVE FAILED!

    The thing about the Illegals, if any of you had read anything on the DREAM act part of it. That DID NOT come from Perez, you would know that the Dream Act doesn't allow the children legality until AFTER they are legal adults and even then the legality is temporary for a certain amount of time in which the children must earn a degree of some sort and prove to be useful to the Country.



  61. 61

    Ummmm, I think "don't ask, don't tell" was a very minor rider on this bill, and it was only a pacifying gesture on the part of the senate. It was the illegal alien college scholarships/citizenship benefits which pissed the public off!!



  62. 62

    Ahhh, Perez….While the repeal of DATD is very justified, the BS PORK tacked onto the bill is what prevented it's passage….Why not DEMAND that our politicians vote ONLY on one issue at a time instead of "lumping" BS laws onto a decent piece of legislation that would legitimize the CRAP, in addition to DECENT legislation (i.e. DATD repeal)?? Think about it….this vote was NOT only about
    DATD….there was LOTS of PORK attached that was NOT justified….welcome to US politics : \



  63. 63

    First off Perez, the Democrats put a bunch of amendments to this bill that had nothing to do with DADT so get your facts straight!
    Second why the hell would the government give a damn about what some crazed woman who wears raw meat has to say! What if gaga asked the government to make everyone walk around barefoot would you support that Perez?

    You & Lady Gaga needs to get the facts straight! This bill wasn't just for DADT other ammendments were added! Morons.



  64. 64

    Haha wow. You just love the illegal shit. Children should not fight for legalization? No they shouldn't. But that should be their PARENT'S responsibility, they are setting their kids up for issues. Nothin like raisin your kids to think illegal shit flies. Oh wait……….. they let a lot of illegal shit fly. Is this even a country anymore?



  65. 65

    They should have kept these two items separate. DADT would have had a better shot of getting repealed had this rider not been added. The illegal immigration issue and the issue of gays in the military have nothing to do with one another! Oddly enough it was the Dems who added that tidbit, basically killing the bill they allegedly support.



  66. 66

    Re: jp1988 – If you don't like it, then fuckin leave ya goddamn asshole! Get the fuck out of the country. Better yet, enlist… stop being sucha loser if you hate our country so much, I'm sure your drill sgt will teach you to LOOOOOOOOVE and live for this country if he or she gay or straight knew what you've said about our leaders. Grow some BALLS and respect or gtfo. Simple.



  67. 67

    Re: Gideon Pyzer – Republicans? Are you seriously slow or can't read? Or too lazy to look into WHO put this into affect? I don't see your dear Obama doing anything about it either. Idiot.



  68. 68

    Good! Do you know how many gays drug and rape their roommates in the military? We don't need an increase of these incidents by encouraging them to join. In the case of illegals…If you don't pay taxes and are not a citizen then you don't have the right to get an education paid for with government funds. Benefits are for legal citizens.



  69. 69

    So advocates for illegals screwed things up for gays?

    Bwa ha ha ha!

    Re: curiousred – How the fuck is she racist? ……. lol race has NOTHING to do with this. Learn your damn insults before you write it. OR go suck a dick with the rest of the whiny bitches.



  71. 71

    Re: MariZett – My family didn't hop a fence. They were turned away left and right. Some died on their way over here. But they weren't violent, they were patience and respectful of the laws here with citizenship. If anyone deserves it, it's people with respect for our laws. Theyre breaking a law by just walking over. Yes, we need more of our tax money spent on dumb fucks who get themselves put in prison. Ever see the majority of race in jail? And thats not saying I'm racial, but it's there, it's common sense.

    I don't copy and paste often on here but…this say it all…
    From Washington Post
    ~
    "Today a Republican filibuster blocked funding for our troops and blocked efforts supported by our military brass to end outdated policies that force service members into the shadows or reject them entirely from serving their country. Gay and lesbian Americans are forced to lie about who they are, and patriotic youth who want to enlist are barred from service simply because they were brought to this country illegally as children. That's wrong."

    "Today, we had the chance to listen to Admiral Mullen, General Colin Powell, and Defense Secretary Gates, strengthen our military, and make our society more just. That didn't happen, and that's an affront to patriots who want to serve their country and put their lives on the line for our security. As a veteran, I'm deeply disappointed, and as a Senator I'm deeply angered and determined to keep fighting until the Senate does what's right."
    -Senator John Kerry



  74. 74

    haha i love how you say "even after lady gaga's efforts." you think politicians are gonna take her seriously? hell no! who would take someone who wears meat as a dress seriously? politicians don't care what lady gaga has to say.



  75. 75

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – You are one of the sadly misinformed
    on illegal immigration. You say you are liberal and humanitarian…
    Educate yourself as to what is really going on in this country now!
    And ask yourself why so many people are able to come and live here illegally.
    SHOULD NOT HAPPEN !
    But it does-because our fucked up policies and complete lack of problem solving skills allow it!
    The racist fucks on here -and you- blame the people instead of our inept policies!
    .
    Bush had a comp. reform bill 3 years ago same as Obama does now. GOP did not/will most likely never pass it because of fear and bigotry!
    (That "A word" makes me want to puke)
    3 years would've been a nice head start on today to finally make some progress.
    You understand why it did not happen, right?
    In no realm of any reality can (actual n=?) millions of human beings who are already here illegally- living, working and-yes, hiding be just… automatically/effectively/practically/economically/ethically and magically deported!
    .
    Read the 14th amendment!
    .
    So, your post makes it clear you are still 100% clueless when it comes to the USA illegal immigration problem from a progressive point of view.
    Stop, think and educate yourself from your self-proclaimed perspective before you post next time!
    Because you are dead WRONG!

    Re: bigray – Right on!
    WTF is wrong with about 50% of 98% of (misinformed-Ha!) Americans?
    What are the chances RepubliCANTS/tea baggers/party of hate will have a real plan other than "fuck no" and tax cuts for the rich before 2012?
    Even sheep will follow only so far as their interests…let us hope!

    Re: J Live
    Thank you for pointing this out. I don't know why people insist on making this all about themselves. How selfish can you get? Yes, people serving our country have rights. But, they are held to a different set of standards than the average citizen. This is because they aren't just out there living their lives…they are in a WAR ZONE where lives are lost and horrific injuries and dangers are prevalent. Our troops need to be a cohesive unit, and they need to be focused on their job. They don't need to deal with this distracting, divisive homosexuality personal bullshit.

    Re: mustbenargles – Republicans are blocking the repeal of DADT.
    We all know it is President Clinton's policy and we (should) all know why he implemented it at the time. You need not point it out on each similar post.
    Clinton has since expressed regret-
    I mean, all you have to do is google and watch his speeches and read his statements.
    No need for you to be so nasty when your posts really contain no facts and come across so…well, for lack of a better word-CRAZY.

  83. 83

    Wow, I like this site but sometimes he's completely off base. There was no provision in the bill to repeal "DADO" that would allow children of illegal immigrants to stay in the country…that's a completely different bill called the DREAM Act. If you're going to support something at least know what it is!

    GOP (party of NO) are the ones blocking it not Democrats.

    Re: @v@ – Excellent point!-
    BTW my post 75 looks kinda, well it looks really weird, but at least none were consumed by the PH goblins this time.
    Never any rhyme nor reason lol

    Number one - I'm REALLY tired of hearing "gay people should be able to serve too" .. clearly you don't know what DADT is so STOP talking about it like you do. Gay people CAN serve in the military. And if Lady Gaga and everyone else is in so much support for the military then maybe they should take their millions and actually HELP the military. These military family's have spouses and kids and are DYING for our country and making UNDER poverty level in the state of California. Lady Gaga and Perez Hilton are only voicing support for the GAYS, not the military, and only because its a controversial cause that will make them be heard.

    Why the fuck does it matter so much if they're allowed to say if they're gay or not? Being in the military should be about fighting for our country and protecting us, not about "Oh I'm gay."
    I don't go to my job and talk about my sexual preference

    Re: supersongbird – I just had another one go where the one sock goes on the Jobs/student post. Maybe the mod is protecting my legal azz, careful azz I try to be; or protecting his, which is a-ok with me. The one I was crying about, however, I don't think so.

    You are such a fucking piece of shit. This whole DADT shit was in the defense spending bill where it didn't belong. Neither does the immigrant thing. And, honestly, you said it in your post about as long as it wouldn't damage the morale or discipline in the military. HELLO, asswipe!!! They sent out surveys to the members of the military over the last couple of months and it asked questions about would it bother you or would you consider not reenlisting if this was lifted. The MAJORITY of the members of the military do NOT want to serve with someone openly gay. The fucking law protects the gays from getting the shit kicked out of them or worse. How many of you fuckers who want this lifted are planning on joining anyway? So STFU!!!

    Re: Gideon Pyzer – Where the fuck did you get your statistic from? You are WAY off! 75% really? Yeah…don't think so.

    Re: supersongbird – This is a fucking from John Kerry. He's a fucking democrap. That is his OPINION. Opinions are like assholes, eveyone has one! It's the democraps fault that this didn't pass. They put too much shit into one bill and it didn't pass because of that reason. HOW does this or the immigration children belong in a defense spending bill? Have you ever served in the military? Do you know that the pay is shit, the housing is usually shit, you have long separations, the healthcare tends to suck ass, etc, the pay sucks, we don't even measure up to the civillian sector. Most military families of lower enlisted are on food stamps and WIC because the pay is shit. And all you fuckers are whining because gays can't serve openly! GTFO! Seriously, just like gay marriage it is NOT a civil right! A gay person can serve, just not openly. It is for their own safety to not serve openly. You all want gays to be allowed to serve. What happens when one of them gets killed because they hit on the wrong service member?

    Re: U_SUCK_DONKEY_DICKS – Are you brain dead or just dumb?
    Where did I write anything else belonged in the bill? I didn't!
    So, I happen to share Senator Kerry's opinion and not yours. So what?
    Fuck you!
    John Kerry happens to be a war hero regardless of his political affiliation.

    The GOP is blocking this just like everything else. It is of no consequence to them whether there is "too much shit" in it or not. They say no to everything. They are the self-proclaimed party of NO-why don't you know that?
    So, your entire dopey rant is pointless and baseless
    And the rest of your post is just bigotry and bullshit.
    BORING!

    Re: U_SUCK_DONKEY_DICKS – BTW, Einstein-
    DADT and banning same sex marriage were both ruled unconstitutional by 2 seperate federal judges. Judge Walker in the gay marriage case was chosen originally by Ronald Reagan and later confirmed by George W Bush.
    The case against DADT was filed by Republicans. If you have a problem go cry to all of them-not me.
    You are just dopey so I have no interest in anything you care to express up in here. I mean-REALLY!
    You really just need to evolve into the present era-2010!

    Hmm sounds like the people who wrote the bill didn't really want to end DADT. Otherwise why attach it to an even more controversial provision? If they are serious about this then they need to write a bill that deals with this issue exclusively. Anyway I don't get why there is a problem with out and prouders in the military. We've had openly gay folk serving for years now and it has done not one thing to hurt our troops morale or fighting capabilities. Oh and BTW your Lady Gaga probably did more to hurt the cause than help it. You can't change a conservatives mind by sending in a circus freak show to perform for them.

    Re: miss_michelle6 – Two big problems with your statement. 1: Gays in the military have no less rights than heteros in the military. 2: Despite your self-serving statement, the decision made was indeed with the wished of the people.

    Re: jp1988 – Very well said.



  97. 97

    Re: PuckDawg – Actually when they find out about your"gay ass" they don't let you serve any more. And do you really think gay people want to dance around in mini skirts. You're an idiot.



  98. 98

    MY GOD! Hey people, this news is not just about lady gaga but all I can see in your shitty comments all you care about is her. Maybe I'm expecting too much from your little pathetic brains.

    Re: supersongbird – John Kerry……….war hero???????!!!!!!!!! Your delusions must be clouding your sense of reality. You need to go take your meds!

    The Senate & House has been controlled by democrats for almost FOUR years. And you have had a Democrat president for almost TWO years.
    Republicans have no power to block anything because they don't have the votes.
    GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD PEOPLE…THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY LIED TO YOU AND HAD NO INTENTION OF REPEALING DADT OR DOING ANYTHING TO FURTHER THE GLBT AGENDA. If they had, they would have done it–they have ALL the power.
    Instead they added on garbage clauses on illegal immigration that they knew would get debate/press to take the focus off the fact that they (the democrats) don't want DADT repealed right now.
    FACT: Afghanistan is currently undergoing its BLOODIEST year ever under Obama's watch.
    FACT: Gates testified that research shows that changing DADT over in the war zones now will be too much change in high combat situations where lives will be put at risk.–Obama can't chance making the Afghan war (which he supports) any worse than he has already made it.
