I'm Dreaming of a "RIGHT" Christmas...



At 3:06 (EST) this afternoon the final vote on DADT began in the US Senate Chamber...  The result of that vote was announced at 3:30pm:  65 ayes and  31 nays...  Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus (just a minor pun as a resident of the commonwealth of Virginia)...

The bill now goes to the White House to be signed into law by the man we helped elect in 2008.  But wait, it doesn't go into effect for about a year, so now we need our Commander in Chief to call Secretary Gates and have him STOP all pending proceedings/discharges under the old law.  We don't need to lose any more (than the 13,000 already discharged) of our dedicated service men and women to a law that has just been repealed.

Thank you President Obama...
