KBH- DADT Would cause *Discomfort*- SHEEESSSHHHHH!

3 February 2010 at 2:04:03 PM

Not that I'd EVER vote for *I'm Okay With Perjury* Hutchison. But the reasoning behind not repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell is highly flawed.

Hutchison, a Republican candidate for governor, said repealing the policy would cause "discomfort" among troops. She said they had grown accustomed to a compromise that allows gay people to serve without discussing their personal lives.

Because it was forced to be that way. Duh. The troops who didn't want to know if they were serving with gay people were the ones that won that compromise.

Is Hutchison really saying that policies that discriminate should remain in place because otherwise people might be discomforted? I'm sure that the plantation owners in the south were not happy and were discomforted when blacks won freedom and slavery was abolished. I'll bet there were men that didn't want women to vote and would have felt *discomfort* at the voting polls to be standing next to a voting female.

Senator Hutchinson has absolutely no vision or imagination whatsoever. Her only solutions are to maintain the status quo. She's just another robot.

Texas has a shortage of quality political candidates across the board.  Medina, while different from Perry and Hutchison, still is a scary option.  On the Democrat side Farouk and White also should scare us.  White was a lobbyist among other things and really should be running as a Republican because that is more his platform.

There is no quality candidate for Governor, which makes me very nervous that Perry will win another term.

In any case, Texas and Texans will remain a mess at least for the next 4 years if not longer.

I think your estimate of 4 years is optimistic, pstern. If our country would only reform the campaign and election laws, like term limits and public financing of campaigns, then maybe intelligent, well-informed humanbeings like you would run for office and actually start solving the problems.

I did say "...at least 4 years". 


"...if not longer."
