So yesterday was a historic day for gay rights activists here in Washington DC and across the country. Don’t Ask Don’t Tell was officially repealed in the house and senate. Now as long as Obama, don’t get me started, actually follows through with something we’ll officially be able to let people who want to protect our Country protect our Country without the fear of being thrown out of the military.
Gay and Lesbian military people will be able to keep their benefits if they are out of the closet and they can openly fight in the military. They no longer have to lie to protect our Country or put their lives on the line for our freedom. Yesterday was a huge day for all gay military officials and for America for gay rights. The one person who did get a bad rap that I would like to clear the air for is John McCain.
Although I am completely pissed off about what he said and what he did, someone had to. The reality of politics is that someone has to play the bad guy whether or not they want to. John McCain does not believe the things he said and does not stand for them. I ran into some of the lobbyists who are friends with the McCains and they said he was upset and did not believe in what he was saying. Sometimes to get something passed and pushed through a Politician has to give a speech they don’t want to and don’t believe in. It does end up keeping order. The industry I am in had a similar thing happen with a Colorado tax law. Someone had to come to the government’s defense and make a speech they didn’t want to and did not believe in. Although I absolutely look down upon people like Palin, the McCains are not enemies of the gays. Their daughter has many gay friends here in DC and John is not anti gay. He just had to come out and give a very hard speech in order to help get Don’t ask don’t tell repealed. You may not have liked hearing what he had to say, I didn’t, but if he didn’t do it then Don’t ask don’t tell wouldn’t have been repealed. That is the unfortunate behind the scenes of how the Government works.
Last night the military took the bars by storm celebrating their freedom. It was about time that the people who fight for our freedom got to enjoy their own freedom to be who they are last night. They came to Nellies for military only drink specials. Gay and straight military came to town to show their support of the repeal of Don’t ask don’t tell and gay military couples celebrated the fact that they no longer have to worry about being thrown out of the military and losing their benefits for being in love. This video I took at town pretty much sums it up.
Ok I’m sort of pissed off. Its the holiday season and my champagne flutes broke. Not only is this the worst time to break your champagne flutes because everyone always wants to drink champagne and toast to the new year, to the holidays and everything else, but it is also when you can easily splurge on high end wines and champagnes because they go on sale.
