Cheney: repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell” law

Makes sense to me. “It’s a generational thing”, he says, and I think he’s right. People my age (mid-fifties) don’t care much and our kids couldn’t care less.

    “People my age (mid-fifties) don’t care much and our kids couldn’t care less. ”

    And have any of you ever actually been in the service? Just askin’. Cause most of the people so obsessed with this subject, Cheney being exhibit one, never have been. Just sayin’.

    Hubby did 5 years as an engineering and communications officer on a nuclear submarine–as close as quarters get–and he thinks DADT a dumb distraction at best, and a massive inefficiency in national security at worst. The real men are in the theater of operations, not on the talk shows. Having your mess hall table convert into an OR with the push of a button tends to “concentrate the mind” as CF likes to put it.

    kind of funny how the GOP gets all tripped up over this subject.

    why again, does the government have any interest what people do in their own bedroom???

      I think the GOP has a death wish – they’re really just bloated Democrats, and are hastening their demise as the lumber off the political field. It’s still going to take twenty years to get rid of them, I fear – I hope we have that much time to save the country.
