    Well this was pretty much a political decision and that holds sway over unit cohesion. But yes, I think that unit cohesion is lessened by allowing them in. Really, the whole gays in the military thing is a paper dragon. From the hubbub you'd think the numbers we're talking about are significant. The reality is there are probably more hare krishnas serving than gay folks.

    That's exactly the messed up attitude that will eventually cause a major conflict. If you believe there won't be severe push-back from these policies, hide and watch.

    I don't quite get it. If cohesion is removed through being allowed in, but there's an incredibly small number of them in the military, where is the fire? Furthermore, have we really demonstrated that there was a big fire? Are we led to believe that the DOD's investigations were seriously flawed?

    Yet you're bewildered that patriots like myself label people like you fascists, authoritarians or totalitarians -- yet you sit here proud of forcing people to do something they may not want to do????

    You do realize this is the equivalent of shoving homosexuality down peoples throats?

    Bull****.

    Not one is saying that a group can't form a Spouses Club as a private entity and exclude anyone they want. As a private club they can do that.

    However if they want Command Sponsorship and access to the base then they have to be open to all dependent spouses. It's not shoving associating with homosexuality or associating with blacks or associating with Jews or associating with the disabled or associating with males/females down anyone's throat. If you don't want to associate, don't join the club. If you want to restrict membership, start your own club.

    Of course they don't...........

    To them it's more than logical to force people to do what they want them to do..... Of course these are the same people that call themselves "liberal."

    These people are ****ing nuts.... They're anything but "liberal."

    Many times it is more than logical that you have to put the foot down on folks to get them to act properly. Faith in mankind can only go so far.

    I've read many of your posts and expect nothing other than right-wing obnoxious crap. You guys always say terrible things then play dumb when it comes time to answer for it.

    I think they are known as PC Progressives now. [or moderates or centrists or wish-washy]

    Incredible mental gymnastics on your part. How you take ending state sponsored discrimination as fascist, authoritarian, totalitarian is beyond comprehension. Nobody is "forcing" anything other than equal access to state facilities. How you make equal evil is a Jedi mind trick.
