LOL. These odd outbursts are so silly.

Yes, Dear, we ALL know that the alternative Republicans in both elections would have fought vigorously to advance the cause for legal quality!

Why, if McCain/Palin had only won, imagine the advances for gay folks! After all, equal rights for all gay Americans was and is an important plank for their party's platform, isn't it?

Geesh.

The Obamanaic could simply issue an order as Commander-In-Chief that ALL individuals, and couples be treated EQUALLY in the military. But he won't do that, will he ?

IMPEACH THIS BUM ! NEXT !

Except for that pesky constitution which prevents him from doing so in violation of a congressionally passed DOMA.

We have a Constitution that makes the practice of equal access and equal protection perfectly clear.

All citizens equally are protected by the 14th Amendment. Are you not familiar with the provisions contained in the U.S Constitution?

"...... No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

abiding by the law of the land doesn't require a Presidential Order.

So as any Fascist would, you are willing to deny or cut off Constitutional Protections to justice and equality from Americans who have difference preferences, customs and belief than you may have.

Do you subscribe to that theory when it comes to race and religion as well? How does what one American practice in their bedrooms or relationship impact your life?

It's simpler to mind your own business, isn't it.

Seems if it is a problem for you, just keep to yourself, you have that right.

You are sounding like you support a full Totalitarianism Government in America. Is it your hope to have a Taliban Authority implemented as a branch of American Government?

You would probably find bliss living in China, North Korea, or the Uganda where being a homosexual means a Government death Sentence. Do you have a pass port?
