"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

AP: High court rejects plea to block gay military ban

We were shocked when the 9th Circuit Court said the policy would remain in force while the 9th Circuit considers the appeal so we are definitely not surprised this action was taken by the SCOTUS.

We would like to know why the Obama Administration put out a flawed reporting touting doing away with Don't Ask Don't Tell which has worked very well since it was enacted. The Commandant of the Marine Corps definitely did not agree with Obama.

We believe this will eventually end up with the SCOTUS before it is over as the gay group pushing this is not going away.

The Marine Corps has some legitimate concerns as they are not required to provide private quarters for their members and should be the service that is heard the most and the loudest.

AP: High court rejects plea to block gay military banSeptember 12, 2010

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court is refusing to block enforcement of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays in the military while a federal appeals court considers the issue.

The court on Friday denied a request from the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay rights group, to step into the ongoing federal court review of "don't ask, don't tell." The Obama administration urged the high court not to get involved at this point.

Last month, a federal judge ruled that the policy violates the civil rights of gay Americans and she issued an injunction barring the Pentagon from applying it. But the San Francisco-based appeals court said the policy could remain in effect while it considers the administration's appeal.
