When confronted with racial discrimination in the military President Harry Truman took the poll data concerning views of American servicemen and then just laid it aside to do the right thing. The reason for that is that human rights are not subject of majority confirmation. They are rights – period!
Amazing isn’t it that people want to serve and fight in these two wars yet conservatives have tried to undermine their rights while backing the rights of “corporations as persons”! Then there is the other meaning of “Don’t Ask – Don’t Tell”! What am I referring to? Well George Bush’s record in the National Guard which he never finished.
The news media follows the guideline of “Don’t Ask” and “Don’t Tell” concerning former President Bush’s military record.
