“Tell it like it is” policy
I want to grab Congress and the President by their neckties and beads and get this straight once and for all. “Don’t ask don’t tell, should be “Don’t ask because it is none of your business,” of better “Tell it like it is and leave me alone.”
Modern medicine and science knows that sexual orientation is a genetic outcome that is natural for everyone. The population is made of people who are black, white, and all shades of gray in between. Get over it. Accept it.
If you believe God made everything, then understand God made people with all sorts of differences for you to accept as God wants diversity, liberty, and freedom for all people.
If you don’t believe in God, then believe the US Constitution and Bill of Rights and stop interfering with people on the basis of their genetic differences.
The policy of My US Government and My US Military is you accept all people who want to participate and join, and do so with equality. Any flag officer who doesn’t get it, get out.
“Military wins temporary reprieve for 'don't ask' policy
Gays have scored victories for same-sex marriage and adoption, but the future of "don't ask, don't tell" is uncertain. And recent teen suicides raise questions about societal acceptance.

The Obama administration won a temporary stay against the moratorium on "don't ask, don't tell" Wednesday, granting the Pentagon the right to once again enforce the 17-year-old ban on gay men and women serving openly in the military.
A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit issued the decision, giving itself time to consider the Justice Department's appeal of last week's injunction by U.S. District Judge Virginia A. Phillips.
Wednesday's stay was the latest volley in an issue ping-ponging its way through the courts.
The Log Cabin Republicans (LCR), a pro-gay group that brought the suit challenging the constitutionality of "don't ask, don't tell," have until Monday to appeal the 9th Circuit decision.
"While we are disappointed with the court's ruling granting a temporary administrative stay, we view the decision as nothing more than a minor setback," said Dan Woods, the attorney representing LCR. "We didn't come this far to quit now, and we expect that once the 9th Circuit has received and considered full briefing on the government's application for a stay, it will deny that application."”
