Relative to: Don’t Ask Don’t Tell
It’s been 8 days, a lot of computer problem and a new house since the last post on TRC. But we are back on and return with what could be very good news. After much delay, ballyhoo on the part of opponents, a push to let the military do their own study, the completion of that study and then more ballyhoo on the part of opponents despite the results of that study, it looks like Don’t Ask Don’t Tell might be repealed.
It is overdue. The senate appears to have 61 votes, enough for passage. Now it is up to Sen. Harry Reid to bring the measure before senators. Even Sen. Joe Lieberman, of all people, calls any delay by Reid “totally unacceptable.”
So get it done, ladies and gentlemen. There are procedural hurdles and other votes of importance, sure. But this is important, and it can finally be done. Do it.
