    Damn! Why is it so hard for some folks to just, "get it"? Someone presents an option, that can make everyone happy and that's just not good enough.
    Apparently everyone isn't happy. If they were, this issue wouldn't exist.

    I don't get this at all. I have a very real phobia towards snakes. Simply put, they suck and are children of Satan. But what the hell constitutes a homophobe? Are they supposed to be vampire like? "Homophobia" is a myth.

    Obviously, you're not understanding the redefinition of DADT that I'm proposing.

    Oh look, meaningless generalities that have jack to do with the topic. Can't have people actually having a rational discussion....

    By the way...we don't make laws based on public opinion, nor should we. No one is claiming otherwise. However, since one of the arguments against gays serving openly is that some people won't like it, pointing out that those people are rare and getting rarer is relevant.

    So, you want to prove that the US courts don't have jurisdiction over US law yet?

    What you are proposing is purely senseless. When Sgt X gives the CO an invite to a marry boyfriend X that is telling.

    Woot! Someone who actually understands! People have always misunderstood or competely ignored the difference between "support" and "don't care"

    Support means you are all for it. Don't care means just that. I don't understand why its so hard to understand.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    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's in the thread. Pardon me if I don't search it out again.
