There was an interesting point in Sunday's Chronicle about "DADT." Clinton had pushed it through as a way to placate the Republicans into allowing gays to serve. It was never intended to be a conduit to force gays out of the service, it was a way to allow them to serve. Finally, Obama got off his ass and got this through. What a waste of human resources kicking out so many thousands of trained soldiers. For what accounts to no damn good reason. I'm glad DADT got overturned by the House and Senate. Its about damn time.
This blog is for me (Joe) to keep in contact with my friends and family who I don't see too much of because I work nights. If you're wandering by checking out the blog from the Internet, well, you're welcome too, I'm 50 years old and live in California. I'm married with two bonus daughters and three grandchildren. I write about sports, scooters, vacations in the RV, my atheism, funny pictures, and pretty much anything else I can think of. I welcome all opposing views as long as you can keep it civil, my mom does come by on occasion. And, as always, the true focus of my life is my marriage to Sandra and fulfilling The Plan. Though the blog is in the top 5.
