    OK I will give you another chance.......How do you have to deal with gays serving openly in the navy aboard ship?

    Good for you. Why should someone else not be allowed in the military because of your beliefs?

    Did you talk to any blacks or women? It wasn't long ago when the exact same thing was said about them.

    They shouldn't but if it disrupts the mession of our military and I believe that is the case especially in the Navy then DADT should be retained....Don't know what your talking about "allowed in the military" because they are already in.......I know that because 14,500 have been discharged since 1993..........

    Come up with something new for once in your life....those talking points are old and stale and have been addressed many times in this thread........

    And if the law was repealed... would they:
    Fight it?
    Enforce it?
    Resign?
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    So the whole issue about gays in the military should only be decided by those who've spent 90 days at sea on a destroyer?

    That is a tough one...No one committed and I did not ask but I can tell you to the man they were adament against it. There was only 4 or 5 of us shooting the bull...they really said that the Navy has enough distractions now and does not need another.............
