    Imagine if someone told you, "Your kind shouldn't be allowed to defend out country." Wouldn't you find that an insult to the highest degree?
    It does not affect those people....it affects only the people who are serving............

    What really sucks is that now a days, these old people are largely the most unproductive, non contributing members of society.

    The only reason any politician listens to them, is because they vote more often than anyone else.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Um...they already are showering and sleeping with gays. The only thing we are contesting is whether or not they should be made aware of the fact.

    You seem awfully dedicated to pretending there are no gays in the military.

    Do you want to provide the statistics to back up that argument? One that isn't based on obituaries perhaps?

    Blacks have a higher AIDS/HIV infection rate than gays do, should we restrict black people from serving in the military?

    If people my age would just vote in better numbers things could be so different, so quickly. It's kind of depressing.

    It is.
    We're held hostage by the "gimme" generation.
