    And you talk a good game about respect and admiration, but your words do not show it. If you think that our service men and women cannot handle what civilians handle trivially, and what other militaries handle, you do not think much of our troops.
    So if civilians handle it there is no need for hate crime laws? Nice try.

    Hate crimes are a whole other subject. People who commit hate crimes consist of about .0001 % of the population. Or to put it another way, almost all by the vast majority can and do handle it trivially.

    Oh, and I oppose hate crime laws.

    Yes, it really is as stupid as it sounds. One of the weirdest, most illogical arguments ever.

    You know something Redress attacking me is not going to help you........You can't get under my skin like rivrat (not sure of the spelling).. In fact I kind of like you.

    DADT is working fine........Use to be if a gay person broke and article against the UCMJ he had to have a court martial to discharge him.......Under DADT it a matter of non Judicial punishment and not to much time or paperwork is use and the gay person gets and honorable discharge...That wasn't the case in the old days

    NP, I could be wrong, but I thought the person would get a dishonorable discharge if they broke DADT.

    That is precisely what you are saying when you say that our servicemen cannot work with gays successfully. Civilians can handle it, as can other military's. Sounds like you do not think much of our troops.
