    This played out exactly as everyone expected it. It was a big political circus meant to use DADT as a wedge issue before the election. The next question will be the December study. I'm sure Conservatives are praying that the study holds to their views. If not, then with 75% of Americans wanting to see DADT repealed and a federal court ruling it unconstitutional, the GOP is going to have a hot potato in their hands. McCain has already gone from leading the charge on this issue to sitting on the fence. His opinion will likely be based on what the December study finds.

    No, you talk to your friends who are Civil War-era veterans like you. Times have changed. And I'm pretty sure that whatever town you're from isn't representative of the entire military.

    Because once their study is concluded, if they determine that there is no problem with allowing gays to serve, you'll just change the benchmarks. Again. Then you'll be demanding some other study.

    Aside from your bizarre homoerotic fantasies about some gay dude checking out your junk in the shower, you haven't voiced ANY reason why gays should not be allowed to serve openly in the military.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the majority of military members being against it, but I hope they submit their reasons for their position becuase I have a feeling most of them would be illogical or bigoted.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    If DADT is unconstitutional, then it doesn't matter what troops think. Furthermore, it didn't matter when blacks were integrated into the military and it didn't matter when women were integrated in the military, so why should it start mattering now?

    The people you are attacking are American soliders too. So you only stand for the rights and beliefs of specific type of solider?

    So are the homosexual soldiers you are attacking. Why are there rights any less valid then other soldiers?
