Category Archives: DREAM act

Todays number: 63

That is the number of yes votes in the Senate this morning to advance the vote to repeal of DADT this morning.

The DREAM act failed to advance, so it’s a good news bad news sort of Saturday. For the record, these Rethugs voted yes on DADT cloture:Sens. Brown, Collins, Kirk, Murkowski, Snowe, Voinovich.

UPDATE– DADT is finally dead. 65 senators rented a set of balls and voted for equality. A Thank you to them for finally recognizing there is no difference between a gay/lesbian soldier and straight ones.

DADT & DREAM amendments fail…thank the Blue Dogs for starters

Those rat fucking blue dogs…Dem’s, only 2, but an important 2 voted no. Reid switched his vote at the last minute supposedly so he can bring it up for a vote again. From CNN:

The bill stalled on a 56-43 vote, four short of the 60 votes needed to overcome the Republican opposition. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, changed his vote to “no” as a tactical move, allowing him to bring the measure up later.

Reid and other Democrats accused Republicans of stalling the National Defense Authorization Act, which traditionally passes with bipartisan support, to undermine the “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal and an immigration provision offering a path to citizenship for students and soldiers who are children of illegal immigrants.

*snip*

Republican opponents included some GOP senators who favor lifting the Pentagon’s requirement that gays and lesbians keep their sexuality a secret.

Susan Collins can kiss my brown ass, as well as the two Democratic senators, Mark Pryor and Blanche Lincoln, both from Arkansas who voted with the Rethugs. Disgusting fucks will hopefully rot in the lowest level of Dante’s Inferno.
