Laws Are Not Always the Answer

Laws are not always the answer to life's problems; in fact most laws are created to protect the interests of the few.

The military's current 'don't ask, don't tell' policy regarding gays does not need to be changed because a small group of legislators want to make it so.

It was no surprise that the Senate could not muster the 2/3's votes required to add the 2011 defense authorization bill. For once I agree with Senator McCain who has taken the position to allow the military leaders to work this out internally.

I have no doubt that gays will be allowed openly in the military some day. But it involves more than just an up or down vote.

Those that want to see the Clinton-era policy abandoned ought to hope idiots like Lady Gaga would stay silent on the issue. I am not a fan of her music and now will be even less so. I heard her try to 'talk politics' on this issue. She might be able to sing, dance and accessorize but she's a down-right dolt when it comes to politics and policy. I don't know what is scarier, her talking politics or those in the crowd cheering her on. That exchange was a sad commentary on American society.

This is another example of American society demoralizing. The military was one of the few last bastions of pure Americanism and Judeo-Christian valves.
