Finally! DADT dies!

It's about time. and an achievement given that the Republicans in Congress have done all they can to make life ever more unfair for the common (i.e., not a politician, banker or lobbyist) American.

It's too bad that in the last two years when Obama could have done more, we've lost a lot of talented soldiers in the field, translators, and other military personnel because of the stupid law. Maybe someone ought to suggest that we reinstate with honor all those who were forced out. I know I just did, but no one listens to me except the two or three layabouts who have nothing better to do than read my posts.

Still, it's nice to have some good news around Christmas time, and I'm happy for my gay and lesbian friends that another little piece of discrimination has fallen down the sewer of history.

Speaking about happy—I'm sure the billionaires who got their precious tax break extension  (OMG they would have been SO financially crippled had they not got it)—and which will make the deficit worse for the rest of us— are happy. I hope they reward well their lobbyists and the craven congressmen who helped them.

Eh, I don't want to end on a sour note. Lord knows I will be busy with baking, presents, children visiting and making sure the Messiah Sing at our church comes off smoothly. So if I don't have a chance to post before January, Happy Holidays and a Happy and Prosperous New Year to both my readers and to all my friends.

And for those I haven't already inflicted with it—here's a cheerful little digital telling of the Christmas Story:

Woo-hoo! Its about dang time. So many talented and dedicated peoples careers and lives were ruined because of this. The way the GOP talks, it sounds like the only thing gays would be doing is feeling everyone up in the showers. How insulting. Israel has one of the strongest military forces on this planet and they have been inclusive for many years. Now, of course, the GOP will pout and vote down the START treaty. Lunacy and payback time prevails. They were against it to begin with but now they have an excuse. Babies. I swear, if I have to suffer through Mitch McConnell (I swear he looks severely constipated) and weepy Boehner (not that there is anything wrong with crying - I did it through 8 years of Bush) crowing and complaining......... Ugh.
