Gay Military Personnel Ready for First Convention
OutServe Leadership Summit brings together leaders from 48 chapters around world

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The nation's only professional group for active-duty gay military personnel is holding its first conference in Las Vegas this weekend, an event only made possible by the recent lifting of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy that prohibited gay and lesbian troops from serving openly in the armed forces.
The OutServe Leadership Summit is designed to highlight the diversity of gays in the military and the challenges they face, and marks the largest gathering of gay troops in one location since the ban was lifted last month. OutServe is a formerly clandestine network of gay and lesbian service members that lobbied the Pentagon to support repealing "don't ask, don't tell."
The four-day conference kicked off Thursday at the New York, New York hotel/casino with private meetings for leaders of the group's 48 chapters around the world. At least 215 service members, veterans and civilian supporters - registration was capped to make the event manageable - have signed up to mingle and to attend panel discussions that range from marriage and the push to secure benefits for gay military spouses to post-military careers and the remaining ban on transgender troops. The CIA is among the event's sponsors, and other scheduled workshops include topics such as Scriptures and Homosexuality.

The work of destroying the US Military is progressing even faster than I expected.
The Republicans did nothing to stop this. They had better make it a priority when they take over the government. Right? They won’t do anything about this either.

USMC Pride...Putting the “unnngh!” in “gung ho!” since 2011.

I think the Scriptures are pretty clear about homosexuality.
I always thought the shield should be brown not red.
Here is the score card:
So what does our side stand for? Lower taxes? I mean the Republicans have given away the store without a fight to "get the moderates".
What does socially liberal and fiscally conservative mean anyway? How can a society so debased have any fiscal restraint?
