IMHO, a very unusual decision coming out of the 9th Circus - LOL.(CNN) -- A federal appeals court sided with the government Monday, allowing the military to maintain its "don't ask, don't tell" policy during an appeal of a lower court ruling that the law barring openly gay and lesbian soldiers is unconstitutional.
At this time, the military can still enforce DADT, while the case moves up, and eventually to the Supreme Court.
Article is here.
The actual court order is here.
My thoughts on this? The days of DADT are numbered, as they should be. Gays love America just as much as anyone else does, and if they want to display their patriotism by fighting for America, I will be the first to extend my hand (only for a handshake, of course :mrgreen, and say "Thank you for your service".
