    I'm not sure where this poll was taken, but just because their office is in San Francisco doesn't mean that's the only place they called for opinions.

    Here's the info from the article:
    The national telephone poll was conducted for Fox News by Opinion Dynamics Corp. among 900 registered voters from February 2 to February 3. For the total sample, the poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

    Just imagine how they view gay women with uncovered faces. They would probably start crying in defeat.

    Why 22? I have 17 year old Soldiers in my unit. Doesn't their opinion count?


    I do think retirees should be polled to though
    You are out. You don't count anymore. No one cares what you think.

    I'm reminded of the Eddie Izzard bit, talking about a transvestite military unit. "Everyone knows that the most important element in combat...is the element of surprise!"

    It's not an exact quote because that man takes ten minutes to get to the point, but goddamned if you aren't laughing the entire way.

    The armed forces are supposed to be pretty stoical, overall, which is one of their more admirable character qualities. I find the notion they are going to go to pieces over the inclusion of homosexuals in the ranks strange. You can't be stoical and sexually queasy.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    What do I say, I say Powell thought is was a great policy at the time, and anyone that says different is a moron.

    It was a great policy at the time. If attitudes had remained the same, then it probably still would be a good policy. But as more and more countries have allowed gays and lesbians to serve openly in their ranks and as more and more states have recognized gay rights (even if they don't necessarily recognize gay marriage), the policy has become outdated and even a little absurd.
