I had to sleep on this before posting it because it made me so angry.
But I have to say that sleeping on it didn't really help.
If any of you watch Rachel Maddow, you know about this. She interviewed a National Guard Platoon Leader named Dan Choi on her show in March. He said "I am gay" on TV and said he could be fired for it because of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.
Well sure enough, today he got a letter saying that is going to be discharged because he broke that policy.
Who in the world could have possibly thought that was a good idea? We ask these people to possibly GIVE UP THEIR LIVES to protect us and they can't admit to who they REALLY are? This is shameful and it needs to be remedied RIGHT NOW. I am so truly pissed about this. We owe this to them... They are expected to be honest, truthful, loyal while in the armed services but how can they be, when they can't even admit to who they are.
Let's lose valuable servicemen and women for this??????
