    Federal judge orders halt to 'don't ask, don't tell'

    "The ruling bans the Pentagon's policy on gays in the military. Now Obama must decide whether to appeal – a standard procedure that would be unpopular with Democratic supporters."

    A federal judge in California issued a permanent ban Tuesday on the Pentagon's "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays and lesbians in the military, ordering the Defense Department to immediately halt any efforts to remove personnel because of their sexual orientation.

    The government has 60 days to appeal the ruling, which gives the administration until after the midterm election next month to make a decision. But it also presents a problem for President Obama as he tries to rally his Democratic base.

    Judge has further ruled that the Military will immediately begin to accept gays openly. Any attempt to delay will result in her ordering a "contempt of court" warrant. Wonder who she will have arrested? lol
