Sorry for my lengthy reply
Kony2012 is just an Internet sensation. A meme. No one talks about it anymore.
I hate politics, it never gets us anywhere.
Don't ask, don't tell never made the slightest sense to me in any way. Your sexual orientation is in no way related to your military career unless you're getting freaky with an officer for a promotional incentive. Won't make a difference in the battlefield unless you are a real dick about it. (Hah, get it? Nevermind..) If you are, then you probably deserved what you got coming. But that goes out to any jerk, really.
I have a pretty loose grip on what's going on in the elections. I just know that I've got my own principles.
I would agree, but if they voted to put DA,DT back in place I would hope it would expand to heterosexuals as well.They should probably have military personnel vote on that last one. It's how they feel about it, not us.
It's a shame, really.

ďMost people donít really want the truth. Theyíre just looking for answers that confirm their prejudices.Ē
1) We already have legislation and some combat-ready troops in place aimed at helping disarm Kony and the Lord's Resistance Army, though to be honest, I can't get excited about Uganda at all anyway, because child soldiers are neither new nor limited to Uganda, plus I don't think sub-saharan Africa can ever be fixed from the outside. On top of that, in regard to the Invisible Children campaign, much of the money donated was never going to find its way over to Africa, so that deal is a sham as far as I'm concerned.
2) I think Obama is going to defeat Romney. The one time a challenger defeated a presidential incumbent in the past 30 years was when Clinton won against Bush Sr in 1992. People were unhappy with Bush Sr, but much more importantly, they were excited about Clinton and he had a clear message of him being able to do a better job than Bush Sr at fixing the economy. Lots of people don't like Obama, but is anyone truly excited about Romney? No. Does he have a clear message? No. He can't get Obama on health care, because "Romneycare" is actually an inspiration for "Obamacare." Romney is similar to Kerry in that he's changed his opinion on certain matters several times, so on top of all that, he comes across as an indecisive or opportunistic flip flopper.
Then again, I'm the kind of lunatic who thinks that everybody ought to be free to snort a line of coke off the back of a naked gay midget hooker while shooting their Kalashnikov into the air, as long as they don't hurt anyone in the process, so I doubt I'll ever really have a mainstream politician appeal to me.
Add to that I think the two-party system sucks donkey balls... hell, I could go on and on and on about all this, so let's skip to...
3) The idea that all gay guys are going to be checking you out in the shower or trying to make a move while you're under fire is ridiculous, and gays aren't any less capable of shooting a rifle, following orders, etc, than heterosexuals. Don't Ask Don't Tell was also flawed in that some gays were dismissed without ever volunteering their sexual orientation but instead having someone discover them being gay through other means.
Once little kiddies stop thinking "eww, gay" about homosexuals, then they may find that gay rights actually make good sense, so long as they're not brainwashed by hardcore Christianity.
Sad thing is that there's no predetermined age when you stop being a little kiddie.
