    My take on this article is some law schools banned military recruiters in protest of DADT.
    "The Association of American Law Schools has formed a committee to examine changes to its policy requiring member schools to take certain steps when military recruiters appear on campus, including scheduling interviews in less-visible locations and putting up signs warning students that the military discriminated against gays and lesbians."
    In my eyes, the colleges discriminated against the military and students who wanted to sign up. Keeping recruiters in isolated areas seems akin to "keeping them in 'the closet'.

    The policy was introduced as a compromise measure in 1993 by President Bill Clinton who campaigned on the promise to allow all citizens to serve in the military regardless of sexual orientation. So how can DADT be discrimination?

    There are plenty of colleges and high schools that don't allow military recruiters on campus, simply because they don't support our military.
    Is that discrimination also?

    LOVE your tag btw!

    How is DADT discrimination? Seriously? Here's a realistic scenario under DADT.

    Question to straight soldier: "What did you do this weekend?"

    Straight Soldier: I got head from the waitress down at BadaBing

    Question to gay soldier: "What did you do this weekend?"

    Gay Soldier: I picked out a new couch with my partner Brad.

    Guess which scenario got a soldier discharged?

    Both, could, though only the first one could result in a court martial for violation of Article 125 Sodomy.

    Should Our Kenyan President reinstitute a draft to help combat his unemployment problem we might hope he'll put lawyers at the top of the list. After all, a vast majority of those graduated each year have no means of gainful employment.....even fast-food places have figured out they can't be trained and definitely will not accept responsibility.
