Washington (CNN) -- The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to overturn the ban on openly gay and lesbian soldiers serving in the U.S. military, passing legislation repealing the controversial "don't ask, don't tell" policy.
The bill -- a so-called "stand alone" measure not tied to any other legislative items -- passed 250 to 175 on mostly partisan lines. It now advances to the Senate.

This is so gay!
I am surprised that they did not add this as an amendment to the other bill. Next up-— the omnibus with cap and tax and a $400 billion stimulus package added.
LOL it is “gay” that the Congress gets to dictate on this very matter. I think it should be up to the military on how they want to maintain a lean and mean fighting force.
Mark the date, Dec. 15, 2010 as the year AMerica’s Military was DESTROYED!! PERVERSION is on Parade....AMerica CANNOT last! ABortion, Perversion......if we aren’t Sodom and Gomorrah I don’t know what is. God HELP us to get rid of these IMMORAL LEADERS we have!!
What pisses me off the most is that Congress and DOD thinks it’s ok for gays to sleep and shower with straights. When in reality, they know it would cost billions to seperate.
One thing about DADT repeal that I have not seen discussed is the fact that much of the military is black and hispanic now, and for the most part they do not like gays. If gays think that all is going to be well now in the military and they can be open about their sexuality they need to think again. Anti gay attacks by minorities will not be looked upon by the media and by the law in the same manner as anti gay attacks by whites. This is going to get real ugly real fast.
Do you hear that America? That’s the sound of our leaders yelling, SCEW YOU!
In Obama’s military, it will be okay for the guy in the next bed...... to ask you for a blow job.
They don’t trust the military, this is a way to get their foot in the door. It worked in our schools and the msm, now it will work in the military.
There is not patriot in DC, otherwise they would be screaming from the roof tops at what this lame duck congress is doing. I’m almost hoping for a civil war. I would rather not be part of the destruction of this country, but I think that ship has sailed.
So in this case the motto would be Ask Butt Don’t Tell.
Democrats are the enemy of freedom.
Democrats are the enemy of freedom.
WHAT THE F#%$!!!
I MEAN REALLY- WHAT THE F@$%ING F#@%????????????????
DO THESE A$$HOLES WANT TO START A REVOLUTION?
That was Bahney Fwank and he said, SCWEW YOU!
In the place of law and order, you have judicial criminality and opinion making done by the leftwing press and the public education system.
Those who applaud in so many of these cases (in the name of greater liberty of course, while ignoring that this type of lawbreaking leads to loss of liberty) have no business every again claiming that they agree with the Constitution.
So it could be a self correcting problem down the line?
The law of unintended consequences.
What good could this possibly do?
In 1965, at the age of 17 1/2, I proudly enlisted in the U.S. Army. I can tell you that if this gay crap was going on then, I would have never left home.
AND, “Cover Your Buddy’s Behind”.
Yes, and I see that I spelled SCWEW wrong. LOL
What do mean almost? A 'cold civil war' has been raging in this country for nearly 60 years now. When it finally goes hot, who is going to be surprised . . . really?
Fags in, chaplains out! (FICO)
America IS screwed.
“The Sacred Band (of Theibs) originally was formed of hand-picked men who were couples, each lover and beloved selected from the ranks of the existing Theban citizen-army. The pairs consisted of the older “heníochoi”, or charioteers, and the younger “parabátai”, or companions, all housed and trained at the city’s expense in order to fight as hoplites. During their early engagements, they were dispersed by Gorgidas throughout the front ranks of the Theban army in an attempt to bolster morale.........
Defeat came at the Battle of Chaeronea (338 BC), the decisive contest in which Philip II of Macedon, with his son Alexander, extinguished Theban hegemony. The traditional hoplite infantry was no match for the novel long-speared Macedonian phalanx: the Theban army and its allies broke and fled, but the Sacred Band, although surrounded and overwhelmed, refused to surrender. James G. DeVoto says in The Theban Sacred Band that Alexander had deployed his cavalry behind the Macedonian hoplites, apparently permitting “a Theban break-through in order to effect a cavalry assault while his hoplites regrouped.” The Thebans of the Sacred Band held their ground and nearly all 300 fell where they stood beside their last commander, Theagenes. Plutarch records that Philip II, on encountering the corpses “heaped one upon another”, understanding who they were, exclaimed, Perish any man who suspects that these men either did or suffered anything unseemly.”

If I had a gay surgeon and he could cut straight, a lesbian pilot who knew how a land a plane in a storm, or one bad ass chap wearing village people loving Indian who could operate a 50 caliber in the desert like a fire hose, why would I care whom they slept with? And further more, why should the it be any of the government’s business?
How many openly gay people are just waiting for this to pass so they can join the military? I mean are there ten, forty, a hundred? Personally, I think most people don’t discuss openly what sexual orientation they are... they just go about their life. All this will do is destroy the military IMHO. Just a thought.
Who knows, however, given what I just said and the obvious truth to it (prop 8 passed in CA because of the huge black and hispanic turnout for bambi), I would think it very unwise for gays to now be open just because the military will not take any action against them. There are many ways to show disapproval besides overt beatings and harassment. The black and hispanic subculture is NOT gay tolerant and no amount of “change” is going to change that. But more importantly, the media and the court system walk on eggshells when it comes to “hate crimes” committed by minorities.
I think gays are going to end up hoist by their own petard. They should have stopped at “leave us alone.” I really don’t think this is going to end up well for them in the long run.
I’m so F-in fed up of these queers and their sick perverted agenda.
What republican if any voted for this crap because they need to be targeted and lose their jobs.
Making homosexuals run around base , cross dressing and then having to have these queers in your face will destroy the military.
I can’t even write what I’m thinking right now but not one appeasement to them ever.
American civilians are just fine with repeal of DADT. This will not get their attention.
for over a 100 years my family has served and now it seems my sons will not and I will be the last one in this family to have served due to these homosexuals.
What they do not get is that many men still serving will not stand there and look at some cross dressers or homosexuals makking come on’s to another guy.
There’;s going to be a lot of trouble with this and I’ll say one what friend served with said and is still serving in Kabul
“if one queer makes one look at me then he will never be seeing anything again”
The liberals won’t be happy until everyone is gay.
Can’t this be filibustered (if necessary) in the Senate?
Any serious response to you would be a waste of my time.
The Constitution vests in Congress the power to "make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces." (Article I, section 8). So it may be bad policy, but it is certainly Congress's job, not the military's.
Unfortunately, it will be the good guys that will get into trouble over this garbage.
The problem is those who stand against repeal of DADT are in very small numbers. The ruling class knows we'll stomp our feet and yell awhile, but they're used to it.
The huge majority of Americans are disassociated with the military and don't think the DADT repeal will have any affect any more than any other societal sector. Oh, they'll prattle on with platitudes about how they "support the troops," but they have no clue about what life in uniform entails. The only real attention they pay to the military is whether DoD pulls its bases (read: JOBS) from their local areas. It's based on an economic, not societal connection.
The remainder -- the moonbats of the hard left -- are the worst. Right now, these types are crapping all over themselves with excitement because finally they can rip the moral core out of the heart of the last bastion of America's traditional makeup: its military. They know EXACTLY what they're doing to the Armed Forces. It's what they've craved for ages.
That's far beside the point. The social engineers about to foist this on our Armed Forces aren't satisfied with the mere presence of homosexuals in the ranks. They want agitation... activism. They want to DESTROY it.
My children will NEVER enlist in the miliary if DADT is repealed!
if the queers get this then they will now say that they can fight and die for their country but cannot get married in their state so overturn DOMA and then get federal benefits.
I’m just B/S over this
Are you promoting the homosexual agenda?
That's what DADT was designed to do ... and it apparently suck you right down the degenerate hole it created. Congratulations. The fact that you would even consider posing your poofter defense is evidence of the effective decay DADT was designed to accomplish.
AFTER reading through your leftist propaganda posting again I conclude you are a sick puppy promoting homosexual sex in the military as a "sacred bond" and as such promoting the homosexual agenda on FR...
You do not care very verbosely and very liberally...
You are likely correct, but the disgust level I felt when reading the queerbait’s remarks was more than I could squelch in me.
