My state, California, unfortunately re-elected, in my opinion, one of the most despicable cretinous members of the Senate on November 2. What is it with the far left in this country that they constantly tear down their own country? Now, I don't particularly care, one way or the other, of anybodies view on gays in the military, or "don't ask, don't tell". Let the Military leaders and Congress iron that out. As a retired veteran, when I was given an order, or policy changed, I did what I was told. There are some who are going to be upset if DADT is reversed, and vice versa. But I know that the men and women in uniform will do their duty, even if they personally disagree with decision that is made. They will probably even bitch about it. We had a saying when I was in: "A bitching sailor is a happy sailor." I/m not too worried about it. Speaking about bitch, back to Barbara Boxer.
I truly detest this woman. Especially when it comes to the military. Barbara Boxer is two-faced when it comes to her support of the military. She gives general platitudes to our military, while at the same time closely aligning herself with 'Code Pink', the radical leftist, anti-war group. in 2005, "Code Pink' leaders went to Fallujah, Iraq, where 51 Americans had been killed and 560 wounded in the US Marines' heaviest urban combat since the Vietnam War, and delivered $600,000 in cash and supplies to the very insurgents the Marines had been fighting against - quite literally giving aid and comfort to America's enemies in a time of war. This trip was made possible by a diplomatic courtesy letter from Barbara Boxer. This washed up hosebag has blood on her hands, so I don't want to hear her lecture me about what a crappy country we live in. If it's so bad - Move! Go screw up somebody else's country. The only thing that makes me sicker than this is that we had enough intellectual midgets in this state to send this troll back to Congress. - Brian
Sen. Barbara Boxer Likens U.S. to Iran, North Korea and Pakistan Because U.S. Bans Homosexuals From Military

(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) today likened the United States of America to Iran, North Korea and Pakistan because those nations also do not allow homosexuals in their militaries.
Boxer likened the U.S.A. to the Communist regime in North Korea, the Islamic regime in Iran and the Pakistani government at a press conference in which she called for repealing the ban on homosexuals in the military during the lameduck session of Congress, which is taking place now before the new members elected on Nov. 2 can arrive in Washington, D.C. and replace the members who are retiring or who were defeated.
“We now stand with this rule with countries like Iran, North Korea and Pakistan in banning gays and lesbians from military service,” said Boxer. “Our brave young men and women fight alongside allies like Australia, the United Kingdom and others who allow gays and lesbians to serve openly. Let’s not stand with Pakistan and with North Korea and Iran.”
The law in question, as CNSNews.com reported previously, is Title 10, U.S. Code Subsection 654. This law states: “The prohibition against homosexual conduct is a long-standing element of military law that continues to be necessary in the unique circumstances of military service.”
