Dan Choi gets fired!!!

"Make us to choose the harder right instead of the easier wrong, and never to be content with a half truth when the whole truth can be won. ~ from the Cadet's Prayer, United States Military Academy at West Point
Lt. Dan Choi, who has been standing up against DADT (Don't Ask Don't Tell) for 17 months now, just got discharged. Remember that DADT makes it against the military code to be gay or bisexual, and as Cliff Arnesen, President of New England Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Veterans, Inc. found out, you don't get half a discharge for being bisexual.

No on can speak more eloquently than Dan Choi himself, so here he is talking about his discharge on the Rachel Maddow show:
