48. Propaganda? LOL.
Edited on Sun Jul-10-11 02:18 PM by AtomicKitten
Again with the irony. The dissemination of misleading information is the very essence of propaganda as evidenced by your mischaracterization of the repeal of DADT. The president directed Congress to repeal DADT at his SOTU address in January 2010, Congress repealed DADT on 12/22/2010, and the president signed the repeal into law on 12/24/2010 (pic below). That's an accomplishment. That's progress. The recent court ruling affirmed the repeal and simply moved the process of its implementation along to its final conclusion.
