I’m glad to see the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy repealed and will now allow gays to serve without summarily being dismissed for a silly reason like whom they are sleeping with. It was always a ridiculous notion to that otherwise qualified individuals should be dismissed from the military over the sexual preference.
Conversely I’m glad that the DREAM Act was defeated. It was not immigration reform despite what some would have Americans think. It was a reward for illegal activities and behavior and worse, a blatant cynical attempt of ethnicity pandering politics.
