Obama: 'Change we never imagined'

It has been with dismay and disappointment that I have been reading all about Obama's agenda for social policy. In fact, I have had a hard time even writing about it, which, dear readers, must have mystified a few of you. I came upon a column by Matt Barber that expresses my feelings exactly, so I wanted to share it with you.

And can I just say, that inauguration was a farce? The music was pre-recorded, the oath of office was completely botched by both parties involved (and followed up with a make-up swearing-in that didn't even involve the traditional Bible), and Obama's speech was boring and totally unimaginative. What a lousy way to start off this presidency!

Just shaking my head...

You know, as minor as this is compared with some of the other problems Obama is promoting, I am sick of the assertion that the Don't Ask, Don't Tell law needs to be repealed because we've spent millions of dollars replacing troops kicked out of the military for being homosexual.

I read a poll the other day conducted with a large portion of military personnel. It was discovered that about 30% agreed that if the Don't Ask, Don't Tell law is repealed, they will leave the military. How about taking that into account when you're tallying up your millions of dollars wasted?
