Get out of the military... no wait, come back!  


The good news: Lawmakers are re-examining the ludicrous "don't ask, don't tell" policy for the first time since it was established in 1993.

The bad news: They are only doing this examining because people are arguing that keeping qualified people out of the military due to sexual orientation is hurting the U.S. military's capabilities.

Oh no, we couldn't possibly repeal "don't ask, don't tell" because it makes gay and lesbian soldiers into second-class citizens and provides an opportunity for unconstitutional discrimination and segregation. The fact that we're treating gays like worthless pieces of shit who don't deserve the same rights as heterosexuals? Not a good enough reason.

But we'll be damned if keeping them gays out of the military hurts our abilities to blow shit up!


What next?

    Of course... same reason why they started letting women into the military. And if somehow aborted fetuses could be used as grenades, Bush would be volunteering at Planned Parenthood.
