Can we finally end Don’t Ask Don’t Tell already? If they are already there, let them stay, they already want to volunteer to do the job that other Americans didn’t want to do. I don’t know what battle Senator McCain is fighting, but while he keeps fighting against his old views, this issue just won’t die. Last time I checked, America has a civilian controlled military, all these surveys about what the soldiers think is trumped up anyway, the way our Constitution is written, if the civilian government wants to change the rules for the military, it is their decision to make and I hope they decide to repeal DADT, it is time.
