Law Enforcement Against Prohibition
Drugs are bad, prohibition is worse
The military is a peculiar entity. when you sign that contract you are actually giving up a few of your constitutional rights. there are things that civilians have the right to do that those in the military do not. If people don't like it, they don't have to join. so constitutionality has a slightly different meaning where the military is concerned. that's just the way it is.
I think it is a bad idea to allow a circuit court in california determine what is or is not appropriate for the entire US military. this in spite of the fact that in this particular case I actually agree with them.
a thought has just occurred: I wonder how many homosexuals and their supporters would be lobbying for gays in the military if we were in a WWI, WWII, or vietnam type conflict with hundred of soldiers being killed each day and there was a draft going on? just curious.

So, actually, a gay man bunking with other men is kind of like men/woman bunking together.
I understand both sides of this issue, its certainly not black/white as to which side is wrong.
To suggest that gay and straight men cannot share the same billets underestimates the character of the american soldier.
I'm attracted to lesbians, so conversely I would also point out that idea is false.
