    Racism?
    Seriously?

    Can you show me where our military is full of racism???

    This should almost be taken as a personal attack.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    It is Caine..but as a good portion of people would know it from the movie, which contains none of Heinleins philosophical stuff, I did not wish to give the title to avoid clouding the issue.

    to be fair, caine, our military is no more immune to racism than the civilian world. It does exist in the military as it does in the civilian world. I do believe that the military works very very hard, however, punish those whoare guilty of, and to do all they can to minimize it.

    Which is what others don't have simply based on birth location. Change the word up all you want, in the end, you are just lucky.

    I don't think everyone should have to serve. But everyone should understand the subjects before spewing nonesense opinions.

    to those who support DADT, what are the drawbacks to repealing it. In what way would are military suffer because of openly gay people serving?
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    You state this as if I have a history of not being able to back up what I write or make a good argument. Are you new too?

    Women have served in the Army since the 18th century. Over time they were being promoted to officer ranks and charged with entire units at a time when civilian bosses were still seeking to pinch them n the ass for their pretty dresses. It wasn't until well into the late Cold War era the first females saw "rank" in the corporate world.

    Psstt..Sarge? I was a female in the military in the 80s, and knew many who were there in the 60s and 70s. It wasnt the social paradise you seem to think. Oh yes..we were allowed in..and it had improved leaps and bounds by the time I enlisted. But well..lets say you might need to take your rose colored glasses off about that one.
