    How is this different than when a gay guy/lesbian gets the boot?

    If DADT is dropped it will probably take a couple of years and I hope your still around here to eat your words when there are problems that arise from this change in policy..........
    Even if "challenges" arise from this that is not enough reason to not do it. Most thought there would be big time problems integrating blacks and whites yet, here we are.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    I worked for the government for many years, too. This doesn't make me an expert on today's military.

    I live 25 miles from the 142d Fighter Wing. This doesn't make me an expert on today's military.

    My father was a Navy E-6 based at Pearl Harbor. One of my closest friends was an E-8 in Vietnam. This doesn't make me an expert on today's military.

    Your living near a military base and having friends who are officers is all very nice, but I'm still curious. How many years has it been since you saw active duty that gave you some actual, personal, first-hand experience of day-to-day life in today's military?

    You will probably have tucked your tail up your ass and be long gone by then though..........
    Well, that was probably the worst rebuttal in history since you only argument is that all gays are going to rape all heterosexuals. Nice.

    And apparently you can read Admiral Mullen's mind. Amazing.

    The truth is that people like you are so arrogant that you can't fathom that someone may have a different opinion than you. Even someone far more credible, like me.

    Why can gays serve in the British and Israeli military with no issues?

    I think your buddy Navy can stick up for himself. Why don't you try arguing my post, since you are apparently the God of contemporary military knowledge.

    No, the bottom line is he gave his personal opinion and explained it with sound reasoning.

    Pregnant women in the Navy don't get the boot...........They can have their baby or stay in.........Any activity is male female.........


    You know I laugh every time you Liberals make the comparison between the plight of Gays and of Blacks and I am not saying Gays have not had a hard time but to compare the 2 is ludicrous and an insult to every black man..............

    Say what? I don't want you to hide behind insinuation. I prefer a clear, bold statement so there is no guessing at all.
