    WOW!

    OK. This is the first argument I have ever heard in favor of open service I agree with. In fact I am convinced.

    I say let em' serve openly.

    You are absofukenlutly right Arch.

    That is rather murky, and when it comes to the operations of the military Congress has few checks against him. Since the President is the sole holder of executive authority in the government he can determine how executive agencies operate. This is especially the case with regards to the military, since he is explicitly named as Commander-in-Chief. And doing so is has it's historical support, since Truman didn't wait for Congress to pass a law getting rid of segregation in the military and integrated it via executive order.

    I hate saluting officers. I did my best to avoid doing so whenever I could.

    That's how it's done in this country. The people elect representatives, who in turn enact the laws which govern the military.
