Post 300: Why Wasn't This Enacted After Oklahoma City?

The House has passed a bill that will prevent members of hate groups joining the U.S. military and root them out of the services all together. Getting the proud haters out is a fine idea, but getting the militia nuts and rednecks a swift discharge would be even better. We can get all those guys administrating "Don't ask, Don't tell" to do the job of weeding out the few Kluxers and skinheads. There is some reaction to the law in The Army Times , Link Scroll down to the comments.

Victory! (sort of)

If this session of congress does nothing else, by defunding the insanely ignorant border fence has insured their place in history as a brief flash of reason in an otherwise bleak era of no-nothing nativist ascendency. It was always my opinion that the border fence should have been built as a monument/tourist attraction a La the Great Wall Of China. At least that way when the country came to its senses we would have something of value for our billions. Thanks to the "slap it up at all cost" frenzy to appease the knuckle draggers the wall is an ugly scar of tin and concrete slashing across private properties and de-facto ceding thousands of acres to Mexico. A bad idea, poorly executed.
