    So gays want this changed so the world can know they are gay. Newsflash no one cares what you do in private.

    I think gays would prefer to serve their country and not have to worry about being booted out simply because they're gay. Did you ever think about it from that point of view?

    Then don't go on Oprah Winfrie and announce it to the nation. Ever think of that?!? I mean, there's not alotta mystery to, "don't ask, don't tell".

    It means, they can't ask and you don't have to tell, period. Why is such a simple concept so hard for some folks?

    If they don't tell everyone nothing will be done.

    You know what's even simpler? For everyone to act like adults and just deal with the fact that gays serve in the military.

    Why should anything be done if they tell someone? Why punish someone for being gay?

    Here's how this is gonna go down. Eventually DADT is gonna be abolished. Then NOTHING happens in the military. Nothing changes.

    And the people on the right stop squawking about it.

    Well, we're talking about an orginization where three-quarters of it's members are under 30 years of age. Good luck with that working out the way you want.

    How about you enlist and see if you can lead the way? Kinda makes you wish that all the Libbos weren't so anti-military all these years, huh?

    We trust those men and women with tanks, jets, nuclear missiles, bombs, and fully automatic weapons. And three-quarters of them are under 30 years of age.

    I'm pretty sure they're gonna be okay with some gay people around.

    For the sake of our service members and our national security, let's hope you are right.

    Pouring millions into the military to build gay/straight only housing, just so we can bo cool, will have a negative affect. I mean, we all know how Liberals are opposed to military spending. You ****ers are going to freak out if we have to spend a hundred million bucks, just because gays and straights don't want to live in the same billets.
