While America burns the social tinkering takes center stage

Let me ask you.... why would anyone want to toy with the greatest fighting force on earth? Why mess with success?

New Bill Will Force Military Acceptance of Open, Proud Homosexuals

Legislation to repeal "Don't ask, don't tell" policy has been introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives. ....

H.R. 1283

The "Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2009"

Sponsored by Rep. Ellen Tauscher (D, CA-10) and 125 co-sponsors --see below-- and CALL your representative, especially if he/she is on this list.

To amend title 10, United States Code, to enhance the readiness of the Armed Forces by replacing the current policy concerning homosexuality in the Armed Forces, referred to as ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’, with a policy of nondiscrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

Question: Why did they not include "gender identity"? Is it because cross-dressers would too readily show how truly ridiculous this proposal is? How soon do you suppose that "civil right" will be added after this one is passed?
