    Maybe we should conduct a thorough analysis before we make radical alterations to our military. Just a thought...
    It's a silly, childish policy. If our military is so terrified of gay people openly serving (and they're already serving from the closet) then maybe we need stronger people in our military.

    And if it weren't for our military ending segregation, another policy that people were terrified of ending, Colin Powell would have never reached the rank of General. He would have been a cook or a Supply Officer somewhere back behind the lines.

    I compare them because he was the last President, and from the opposing party.
    Who has been President for the last year?

    Who cares what the Canadians wear? I live in America. Obama is the American President. He is the Chief Executive of America, not Canada.

    I've said that all along.

    Have you given any thought to what you're going to do when soldiers demand seperate billets because they don't want to bunk with soldiers of a different sexual preference?

    This isn't going to be anything other than a giant cluster ****.

    PBO hasn't done it, because he doesn't actually have the authority. If he did, there's no doubt in my mind that he would have already. I think he's afraid to tell his base that he just can't do it.

    He has the authority to right today stop any further discharges from DADT. In fact, the information on this is in this very thread.
