    Not in the least. I'm making a point. Where is the ad hom?

    Why are you so quick to diminish his honor as a serviceman? It says more about your desperation to win an argument than it does about the point you are trying to make. Just sayin'.
    No he isn't Jallman....I'm sure you've been following this debate on this site. For days Navy has been going on and on about how soldiers will leave in droves...that isn't respecting the decision of other soldiers to follow orders...that is essentially condoning their disobedience of orders.

    How has anything that I have said diminished his honor as a "serviceman"?
    Are you suggesting that he can say any crazy thing he wants and shouldn't be called out on it? I can't imagine that it what you are suggesting, is it?

    Don't you think if they disagreed they would just keep quiet instead of speaking out?

    Would you call them liars to their faces?


    THe president Tells Mullin to take a crap and Mullins says where........Senior Officers when told something salute and say yes sir............Snyone who does not know that has never served and is clueless about what goes on in the military service..........

    This behavior is par for the course in ANY service when dealing with a superior office. Even more so when dealing directly with the Commander-in-Chief.

    Ad hominem...meaning "to the man" as opposed to "about the issue". Your post was a classic example of an ad hom.

    "Why aren't you blah blah blah". Couple that with your sarcastic "Navy Dude" crap and it's nothing but ad hom with zero substance.

    And as to your statement about Powell being retired...you are correct. He still can be given direct orders from the Commander in Chief for life because he was a commissioned officer.

    An enlisted man, not so much. I guess they can but I have never heard of one being given an order in their retirement.

    But to settle it: Navy, have you been issued orders to publicize agreement with repealing DADT?

    You got it right......Mullin or Powell would never go against Obama...... and even though he is retired he is still called General Powell and will be until he dies and it will be on his headstone just as I am still called Chief although I am long since retired........For you guys that are clueless about the military that is the way it works..........

    Yes he is. I'm sorry you find it so inconvenient that your classless attempt to diminish the service of one of our board members was called to the carpet, but too bad. I find it highly offensive that you would leverage Navy's integrity as a serviceman against your desperation to win this argument. I understand that the issue is close to home for you (although I don't understand why since you never served to begin with) but that does not excuse your attempt to demean the service of others just to try to score points in a debate.

    In fact, it diminishes any point you might have had in the first place.
