Fuck. Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck.
U.S. Senate Republicans have blocked legislation that would have repealed the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy and allowed gay troops to be open about their sexual orientation. Democrats failed Thursday to cinch a procedural deal with Republicans in the waning days of the lame-duck session. The 57-40 test vote fell three votes short of the 60 needed to advance. The vote ends months of political wrangling about the bill and makes congressional action on the repeal provision unlikely any time soon. The 1993 law bans gay troops from publicly acknowledging their sexual orientation. A repeal provision was included in a broader defence policy bill and passed last spring in the House.
In what kind of fucking mathematical fucking system is forty larger than fifty-fucking-seven?
Fuck you, United States. Fuck you Senate. Fuck you Republican party. You deserve the shithole your country is becoming.
I will return to my usual level of language tomorrow.
