    I googled "moon landing hoax" and there are a hundred thousand results, so that puts an end to that debate.

    Exactly right. All the people pretending that this policy change will have no impact on the budget are being ridiculous.

    In 2005, the Government Accountability Office found that the cost of discharging and replacing service members fired because of their sexual orientation during the policy’s first 10 years totaled at least $190.5 million. This amounts to roughly $20,000 per discharged service member.

    Analysis of GAO’s methodology, however, shows that the $190 million figure may be wildly off the mark. A recent study by the Palm Center, a think tank at the University of California, Santa Barbara, found that GAO’s analysis total left out several important factors, such as the high cost of training officers—commissioned soldiers, sailors, Marines, airmen, and Coast Guardsmen with several years of service experience—who were discharged due to their sexual orientation. When these costs were factored in, the cost to the American taxpayer jumped to $363.8 million—$173.3 million, or 91 percent, more than originally reported by GAO.
    I'm glad to see you're on the side of fiscal sanity, American.

    james, I don't know about you, but it's very rare that I have a conversation with co-workers about whether I'm heterosexual, bisexual, or gay. It doesn't come up....at all! Does that mean we have a DADT where I work?
    To make it equal (because a gay or lesbian soldier could be discharged for saying "I love you" to a same-sex partner back home): I think we should just ban all phone calls home to loved ones.

    That's equality. Otherwise, a phone call home to a girlfriend or wife is the same thing as shouting "I'M STRAIGHT" to everyone. They shouldn't be asking or telling about such things either.

    They're there to fight and nothing more. Calling home to loved ones is a waste of tax-payer dollars.

    And isn't "high-fiving" a really straight thing to do? I think that should be banned. Because, God knows, you could be removed if you walk a little light in the loafers - isn't that the same as shouting "I'M GAY". Well, then high-fiving is the same as shouting "I'M STRAIGHT".

    I'm just sick of everyone shouting about their sex lives all the time with everything they do.

    Isn't that how the world works?

    Good job ignoring the existing costs just quoted to you.

    What one-liner might we anticipate next?

    what about post #53? It's not just that it would not cost anything, it would also allow to spare American Taxpayer's Money™

    With enough pressure the Liberals will say we are haters and intolerant for saying no to all child molesters, because they can't help it because it's the result of some mystery gene that does not even exist, like the claims the homosexuals have falsely claimed in the past.
    How is this at all relevant to the thread topic? Goodness...
