Do these stupid generals think, "Joey is gay. He must be staring at my ass. He must want to BF me." Oh brother. Talk about ignorant.
    Yea, those stupid generals. What do they know about the military?

    Remember when the libs bashed Bush about dismissing certain generals in 2002? Boy they couldn't get over how he just wasn't listening; and now here they are bashing the generals.

    It doesn't, and no one has ever made the argument that it would. The problem is with increased unit friction and degraded cohesiveness. Not that you would know anything about it...

    So the only way that unit friction and degraded cohesiveness is when we let gay people serve in the military? Wow. I could see how I would know nothing about that kind of stuff.

    As to your other comment about what generals know about the military, when a Brigadier General tells me that she believes gay people should be able to serve in the military, I think she has some knowledge about the military, don't you?

    Still nothing to say about post #53? That's surprising, because it's the post that destroys your arguments.

    Nothing destoys my argument, but you can legally fantasize all you want. My argument is that it is a military matter, and shouldn't be political. You want argue as a non-stakeholder go ahead.

    OK, so you said that it would cost American Taxpayer's Money but the post #53 showed that it was the contrary, and you don't want to talk about it.

    I'm glad to see you're on the side of fiscal sanity, American.
    Okay, I getcha. So if we change the policy to open gay lifestyle all those cost will go away and it will be free. Thanks, I stand corrected. I'm glad we have these analysis available to show us the err of our ways.
