Some government officials believe that the only reason to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” will be to improve military effectiveness. The controversy over the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy will continue to be an ongoing issue until homosexuals, civilians and the military can come to an agreement. Works Cited Cary, Peter.

De’Ja Davis 16 September 2013 W131 R8 Ms. Masur A Critique of William J. Bennett’s “Against Gay Marriage” In the article, “Against Gay Marriage,” William J. Bennett declares that the standard for marriage will be destroyed if gays are able to married. To start off, he elaborates on the Hawaii’s Supreme Court’s discovery of a new state constitutional “right”. This “right” is known as the legal union of same sex couples. Hawaii will be the first state to sanction these unions. In doing so, other states may have to follow along due to the Constitution’s Full Faith and Credit Claus.
The endorsement groups offer bribes and ask for unnecessary promises to the politicians running for office. The temptation of falling into these traps is monstrous. According to Obama, these politicians feel that if they do not accept these bribes or arguments then they will lose out on endorsement deals as well as votes. Taking endorsements are not bad in anyway. However, a company endorses a certain individual for reasons such as political similarities or to help promote their product.
Our founding fathers fought for a separation of powers between the legislative, executive, and judicial branches to avoid conflict and rise of power in one or more branches. In that aspect I believe the government works in a constructive manner to ensure equality between the branches, however, in the matter of working in a constructive manner for the good of the people is less certain. This country is facing an economic crisis and there are members of both parties that would tell the general public they would like the war in Afghanistan and Iraq to come to an end when in reality an economic recovery is the last thing they want to happen in a foreign country. The Republican Party, for example, would have liked to see a higher unemployment rate towards the end of 2012 in hopes of decreasing the chances of the President’s re-election. Higher unemployment rates lead to a more devastating economic crisis resulting in the failure to re-elect a democratic President or more precisely, our current President.
Many well-meaning people who may not understand the issues involved are opposed to the convoluted “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy or think it needs to be reviewed. They are correct—Congress did not vote for the Clinton “sexual orientation” policy and the secretary of defense should have exercised the option to drop it long ago. “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” diversions, however, should not preclude objective discussion of the consequences of repealing the 1993 Eligibility Law.

The first article by the senator had a few things that I felt were not correct. He came up with lots of reasons for going to Iraq and how we went for the wrong reasons but he does not mention the reason we went there in the first place, which was to remove the dictator Saddam Hussein from power. Throughout the editorial the senator also seems to somewhat villainies the U.S. I don’t believe a U.S. senator should make his country that he serves look bad even though others feel that it is ok to do so. Lastly, he wants to get across the message that the U.S. is at war with Muslims and not Iraq, which I believe is completely untrue.
Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Helpful Or Harmful Arnetia Rhone ENG/102 November 13, 2011 Ellen Anderson A President Barack Obama stated “As of today, patriotic Americans in uniform will no longer have to lie about who they are in order to serve the country they love. “This was said after history for our country and the military was changed. The “don’t ask don’t tell “law was passed during the Clinton administration on December 21, 1993. From then on many soldiers were affected by the law and lost their careers behind as a result of it. Many say allowing homosexuals to serve in the military is a mistake, but finally after 18 “don’t ask don’t tell” is band enabling homosexuals to serve openly.
The author establishes logos by stating his claims, providing main points, and providing supporting evidence for his claims. The author’s main claim is that our nation needs to develop true listening skills because it is not gay marriage that is threatening the family, “If anything is destroying the family these days, it is the inherently divisive strategies we use to communicate with one another.” Furthermore, he claims that before we take a personal stance on gay marriage, we should reach out with open minds and “really, truly listen and dig deep. Be generous and kind, and seek understanding.” In other words, seek understanding of each side before we judge and form our own opinions. The first main point of his argument is that he is proud that his organization has been able to establish an environment of “true listening and true respect” and gives evidence that they have done so despite the different political views
Latisha Hollis Soc120: Introduction to Ethics & Responsibility Instructor: Vahik Ovanessian August 29, 2012 Lenn Goodman believes that in the story “Some Moral Minima” was wrong for some of the issue he presented in the story. Lenn Goodman believe that everyone women, men and child should have the right to live freely been humanity. Goodman believes that judger shouldn’t be passing unless you know that what you are doing is morally wrong. I agree with Goodman on the issues that he discuss on terrorism, rape, polygamy, genocide, slavery and incest. There is no justification for killing for no reason or taking advantage of a person for sexual reason.
94. Romney v. United States fought against this ruling and eventually realized that they could not win this battle which lead to the renouncing of polygamy. While I agree that all beliefs are not right as in the book which states “Thugs of India imagined that their belief in the right of assassination was a religious belief; but their thinking so did not make it so.Yes it does not make it right because they believe in polygamy but it’s very hard to take away something someone belief started from, is based on and ask them to still believe in the same way as the founders who beliefs they are carrying out. In today’s time Mormons still exist and each year missionaries go out to countries to convince people to transform to their beliefs. In the end I believe we can’t take away the Mormons main beliefs from them and we shouldn’t punish them for doing it as long as they it in their own society.
