    I know there's plenty of "awareness" here, as message boards are like narcotics for the liberal and gay community. But I know that it isn't the prevalent topic in the barracks of Fort Anywhere right now. Islamic extremists planting themselves within the ranks, and their inability to do anything about it.....now that's another story.
    I think you would be highly surprised to find out then that Islamic extremists are not the only thing, or probably even the most often talked about thing that military members discuss. In fact, there are even some in the military who sympathize with Islamic terrorists, but they still do their jobs. And most have plenty of other things to talk about, including gay rights, in and out of the military. Some are for, others against, and either side can be vocal. This goes for active and reservists. My husband told me about a conversation about gays in the military he had with someone yesterday. I had one two weeks ago at my DWE. Most people try to avoid talking about politics in the military because they are concerned that they may offend someone on either side no matter which side of an issue they are on. I have, in the past, had many conversations with my fellow sailors about gays in the military. Many of the people I worked with on active duty had no problem with gays serving openly, especially if it meant more people to stand watches and make our lives easier.

    !!!Bingo!!!
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    I've advocated lifting the ban on gays. You haven't. I believe the reason that you haven't, is because you're not familiar enough with the system to know better.

    obnoxious obama couldn't even fill the 650 seats in the roosevelt ballroom, even at the firestorm price of $100 an appearance, subsequently slashed to 50 bucks

    this, despite emailing PROFESSIONAL LEFTISTS like ms sheehy at the DAILYBEAST, practically begging her, FOUR TIMES

    Barack Obama Can't Fill Roosevelt Ballroom for Speech - The Daily Beast

    those 200 empty seats, like the gay protestors who heckled the harrassed honcho for the better part of the hour, speak volumes

    YouTube - Raw Video: Obama Heckled on AIDS at NY Event

    so did the courageous cfo at the georgetown townhall who lamented, "I'M EXHAUSTED FROM DEFENDING YOU"

    aren't YOU?

    more ticked than tired was the agitated activist from CROOKSANDLIARS.com who BITCHED OUT axelrod this morning in a conference call intended to AMP UP progressive ENTHUSIASM and turnout

    The Plum Line - Liberal blogger directly confronts David Axelrod, accuses White House of "hippie punching"

    axelrod, by the way, announced this morning that he too---like orszag, like romer, like summers, like rahm---is GONE

    David Axelrod Leaving White House In 2011: Will Work On Obama's Re-Election Campaign

    he's going to chicago to run obama's 2012 campaign---LOL!

    as if that's not what he's been doing from the get go

    axelrod IS politics, he's no economist, he's no wonk

    when will HILLARY make her move?

    this white house is completely clueless

    it's on record for RAISING TAXES on SMALL BIZ which it AINT NEVER gonna get

    it pockets prodigious political pain with NOTHING TO SHOW

    out t'other side its mis-messaged mouth, it touts AID to the nfib's in the form of LOANS for which you must apply, fill out paper, go thru bureaucracy, satisfy requisites...

    the entire conception is convoluted

    the only constant is the govt middle man

    max baucus, the GATEKEEPER, indicated today there's NOT ENOUGH TIME to do the bush cuts

    Democrats Delay Vote on Extending Bush Tax Cuts - WSJ.com

    but just THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY reid was in his all fired, ready hurry to PUSH his dadt to NOWHERE

    you can argue the merits of dadt, you can debate whether gay marriage is or isn't an AMERICAN RIGHT

    but when it comes to the core COMPETENCE of this keystone crew, there is NO controversy

    evidently

    carry on

    Yo, the prof, can I ask what it is you think you are doing?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Which one is the wife beater? Which one is white? Which one is black? Which one cheated on their taxes? Which one does community service? Which one is the bus driver?

    That picture couldn't be more vague or poorly thought out. Just because the "gay one" dies it doesn't mean that the identity you chose to identify him or her with is worthy of any more consideration than any other.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
