You have the House, now federal judges, the Prez, the head of the military, and thousands of troops and public popular vote that would strike down DADT and yet it is still being exercised. I really don't understand that at all.

You only have half the house, the president is meh on this like every other promise he made, not all of the heads of the military branches and thousands of troops doesn't compare to the million that don't want it not to mention the tens of millions of citizens. This issue isn't nearly as clear cut as that. It's still being exercised - though on a very, very limited scope; at the moment no one is being discharged unless them being gay was peripheral to them committing a crime - because a lot of people still think it shouldn't be repealed. These kind of movements from the judge is not the way to convince the opposition. In the entire time I've been arguing about this issue with veterans I've managed to change the mind of one person with logic and reason. Shit like this is counter-productive.

Not to mention all the gay-but-closeted people in the military who are worried that they will be outed overnight by other gays once DADT becomes irrelevant.

:waw: not really. he's being a retard.

1. Recruiters can't just take a news story as adjustments to their orders. Unless they're told by higher ups that they can re-enlist homo dudes then they can't.

2. His dumbass should know that when he was discharged he was given an RE-3x enlistment code, most likely an RE-3D if not an outright RE-4. A recruiter can't just ignore that or waive it, he needs to go through the proper channels like everyone else and apply to have it changed.

3. This injunction has ZERO LEGAL WEIGHT. The military is not subject to federal district courts. We have our own civilian appellate courts within the judicial branch, federal districts have no more say over what happens in the DoD than your country sheriff has a say in what happens on NYC streets.

Well the injunction might have no weight, but that didn't stop the air force from dismissing DADT

In an internal memo the Air Force's Lieutenant General Richard C. Harding today instructed its JAG officers that until DoJ decides whether to appeal the DADT ruling, they must abide by the court injunction that says the military must move "immediately to suspend and discontinue any investigation, or discharge, separation, or other proceeding." It appears the instruction isn't limited to the Air Force, but the entire Department of Defense

A friend of mine high up in the chain in the air force said they have plans in place for the whole branch that as soon as Obama says the word or the legislature votes, the policies will go into effect for integration that minute.

lolwut

An Air Force LtGen has no command authority over Army, Navy, Marine and Coast Guard JAGs. So that instruction - if real - is limited to the Air Force. Second, plans in place? Integration? There's nothing to integrate, dude.
