Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) plans to introduce legislation to repeal the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy that prohibits homosexuals from disclosing their pathology while serving in the military. The White House supports his bill, but no timeline for its implementation has been established. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) introduced a more aggressive bill in the House that calls for repeal in 2010. Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Defense Secretary Robert Gates have indicated support for repealing the law but stated that the Pentagon would need at least a year to study implementation. General James Conway, head of the U.S. Marine Corps, dissented. "My best military advice ... would be to keep the law such as it is." Conway added that the only question that mattered is this: "Do we somehow enhance the war fighting capabilities of the United States Marine Corps by allowing homosexuals to openly serve?"

General conway has a good point, but you have to understand that libs are just doing this to get the gays in their side,they cant have real American votes, so they have to look elsewhere.

I'm just another damn yankee with a loaded gun looking for some fun!
