Don't ask, don't tell thingy.


After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I just stumbled upon this bit of data from the Daily Show and I'm having a hard time finding solid facts about the whole thing.

From what Jon Stewart said the don't ask, don't tell bill was mixed in with a few other bills that were not appealing therefore when you voted for the things the voters didn't want they were also upholding that policy because there was no other choice.

Something like that... Does that happen a lot where bills big people in congress don't like wind up in sort of a mass bill with a ton of other things that are undesirable and somewhat offensive / conservative / liberal?

From what I understand, politics blows. :\
