DADT and the Dems

I do want to openly express that my kids, and the kids in other families, are watching what is happening in our society and faith communities in terms of how people with disabilities are treated, or not treated, and with it is with kindness or shame.

The kids are watching.

So when I read about the DADT being brought up in Congress by the Democrats--come on Republicans, you know it is the right thing to do, as do you Independents--I want to be sure you all know: the kids are watching.

From huffingtonpost.com

Congressional negotiators and White House officials are moving forward with plans to add the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell to the upcoming defense authorization bill, Democratic sources tell the Huffington Post.

In Congress, members are being whipped to ensure that the votes will be there for passage, should the legislation be placed in the bill. At this juncture, aides say, the prospects look good. Meanwhile, a source close to the White House says the president has instructed the Defense Department that he believes the repeal of DADT should be placed in the authorization bill.

If you're a Republican you voted for Sarah to be vice president......as she was our last line of defense against Mother Russian (come on give her the Bronze Star) and she knows that gays in the military would have thwarted her efforts to keep Alaska "free" under her watch how could you possibly support this pending bill.

according to "Game Change" she didn't know who or what her son was fighting against in Iraq, and didn't know why N. and S. Korea were at war.
