    I think the problem is that most of the guys in here are not in the military nor have no intention of ever joining so its easy for them to say hell yes, let them serve openly.........If there was a draft or if they had to join the military most of them would be singing a different tune..........Its easy to be so liberal on the issue............no skin off their ass...............

    AFP: Ex-US military chief Powell backs end to gay ban

    Colin Powell is now for repeal. You aren't going to have much political capital left if you hold to your backwards opinion NP.

    It's not that simple, Powell expects there to be a methodical approach to make this change, it's not just repealing a law and then let things go as they please.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I suspect this will happen much faster than anybody thinks. They've been monitoring this damn thing for 17 years. After his U.N. speech, Powell doesn't exactly carry the weight he used to. Sad.

    You're in deep denial.

    The top brass are saying publicly to drop it, those who once supported it (Colin Powell) are saying publicly to drop it, and the President wants to drop it.
