    I agree.

    From the top-down is the wrong approach.
    There must be a more dramatic and notable change on a social and cultural level throughout the US for something of this nature to really take effect and actually be accepted.

    I don't want something ****ty to happen and "prove" to people why they never should have repealed it. . . and then really send things back. Not enough people are accepting of things, yet - definitely not in the military.

    I think they should modify DADT, first, before repealing it.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    No...if you had been following along you would know that.

    Navy, himself posted an article which cited that the vast majority of the military have stated that they have no problem with allowing gay men and women to serve in the military....

    And yet...he still trys to argue that the military rejects it.

    What does this argument suggest to you?

    Seems to me that Navy is trying to say that although military members state openly that they support the ability of gay men and women to serve our country openly in the military...if given the option to vast a ballot in secret, would become bigots in the ballot box.

    I have more faith in the integrity of the men and women of our military than that.

    I note you have never served.......No skin off your ass right?
    I served. 82nd Airborne. And no, I would have had no problem. I'm an adult quite capable of handling myself without denying others the priviledge to serve.

    BTW, you still haven't explained why others should vote on military rules.

    There is no from the top down. Do you think these cases just magically start in the Supreme Court?

    Last time I looked the 82nd airborne was not part of the Navy and that is all I can speak for.........when you start ridingg destroyers at sea for 90 days at a time let me know.......

    Defense Sec. Gates was testtifying in front of the armed services committee on CNN this morning and he said there would be no decision in at lest a year......The change if it ever happens has to go through Congress and they don't have nearly the votes.........

    What do you base this on?

    You have the top military officers in the Country calling for the end to this stupid and outdated law....calling for gay men and women to be able to serve their country.

    Why do you think that Congress would vote against the military rather than support the opinions of the vast majority of the ranking military in the country?
