A fierce advocate for gay rights.

Now what’s not to like about Lady Gaga?

The repeal of DADT is currently being filibustered by Republicans, as it is part of a military funding bill, if Republicans succeed in filibustering it they remove funding from Soldiers while the US is involved in a war in Afghanistan and military action in Iraq. So much for supporting the troops. Lady Gaga is going to Maine, the State that sends that rare beast, moderate Republicans, to break that filibuster.

    What does Lady(?) Gaga know about military service? Who really cares what she has to say about anything out side of selling records.

    By the way, if you ignore MSNBC and all the other cable “news” outlets, you would know that the filibuster is to allow representatives to debate the bill and offer amendments to make sure it serves the will of the people.

    Why not just bring up a legislative bill that repeals the “Don’t ask don’t tell” military policy on it’s own? Because the Democrats would not support it on it’s own.

    Cramming policy changes into a funding bill it dirty politics, and thanks to President Barry and the Democrats, Americans are not standing for it anymore.

      We’ll see what kind of turnout she gets in Maine. Now one of the problems for Republicans is that if she can energise first time and young voters to vote in Mid Terms, Republican hopes of winning the Congressional elections are buried.

        I’m sure she will have a turn out, but just because people want to star gaze does not mean she has an educated opinion on the subject. She is currently very popular in pop culture and she will draw a crowd while she is in the spot light. This still does not mean she understands what it means to live in a small tank turret with 4 men for months at a time.

        Also don’t get me wrong, I am not commenting on the merit of “don’t ask don’t tell”, but I at least have the personal experience to talk about what it is like to serve in the armed forces.

    Of course, you objected to such tactics when they were repeatedly done by Republicans in Congress and you will continue to do so if they ever win back Congress. Which now appears is increasingly unlikely as November gets nearer.

    Well, Lady gaga may not know much about the military, but I sure do. The military’s anti-gay policies are a load of shit, just like any other institutionalized discrimination is. All the gays I’ve know in the military at least had the courage to serve and could probably beat the hell outa any chickenhawk conservative who is opposed to their right to serve openly.

    Good to see you agree with me that “Lady” Gaga has no credibility to speak on military policy.

    As for your threats that because someone can beat up another makes their decisions more right than another’s is typical school yard ethics that is destroying this country.

    Grow up, might does not make right.

      It wasn’t a threat, it was a fact and speaks to their ability to do the job, unlike those who have never served but think they have some right to dictate military policy due to their own homophobic agenda.
      I didn’t say, or imply, that they, or anybody else, was going to beat someone up.
