It’s Washington vs. the Country

Is this what you want your government doing? Really?

This work period, the Senate will consider the Defense Authorization bill. Along with critical support for our national security forces around the world, this legislation will address two other important issues that are long overdue.

Passage of this bill would overturn the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ rule for our armed forces. We will finally send a loud and clear message that everyone who steps up to serve our country should and will be welcomed regardless of sexual orientation.

We are also offering an amendment to pass the DREAM Act. This amendment will ensure that millions of children who grow up as Americans will be able to get the education they need to contribute to our economy. Students who come to America before age 16 and who have been here for five years should be able get their green card after they go to college or serve in the military. And many who have volunteered to defend our country can finally become citizens of it.

He Lies!! There has been a path to citizenship through military service at least as far back as 1969 when I entered. After 40 years of union(democretin) dominated public education, the high school diploma is nearly worthless. How about fixing that by returning the schools to the community they serve and get the feds and the unions out of it? And, I’m sorry, but what’s up with equating going to college and serving in the military? For life and citizenship lessons, I’ll take the mentoring of NCOs over the inane rattlings of college profesors who have never had a real job or any marketable skills. (I have eight years of military service and a Master’s.)
