    Congress is set to vote on the Murphy Amendment this week. This bill repeals the discriminatory "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy for all armed forces, and would prevent the discharge of patriots willing to fight for us merely because they are GLBT folks.

    The US and Turkey are the ONLY NATO countries which discriminate against gays and lesbians in the military, and over 10,000 armed forces members have been discharged for being "openly gay". I don't think it's right to ask someone to risk his life for me and then demand that he hide who he really is.

    As predictable as mud after a rain, the GOP has vowed to fight this bill with all their might. Tell your senators and representatives -- especially if they are Republicans -- that Americans love ALL our fighting men and women, and that they are fighting to protect a nation that will not discriminate against them if they survive and return home.

    The Human Rights Campaign has a widget you can use to contact your elected officials easily and quickly, and to add a note about this to your page on facebook or twitter.

    I think some folks are confuzzled by the concept of Being Ignored. But then, some folks appear to be confuzzled by the notion of right vs. wrong, too.

    LMAO! Just because you choose to ignore me, does not mean I ignore you.

    Of course, you lied when you proclaimed you would ignore me.

    Have you ever served in the military? Unless you have served, you have no valid opinion of DADT!

    Why is that, exactly? The service of my Daddy, uncles and cousins is not enough to qualify me to speak? WHY? These are the men whose generation saw the integration of the military, ending racial segregation among the troops. People predicted that would be the end of the world as well, and it was not. No one now would seriously propose returning to racial segregation among the troops.

    Why is it I need to be defended only by heterosexuals and silent homosexuals, but some lady in France doesn't?

    I pay for the military. Does that qualify me to have a valid opinion?
