    I personally don't care how it was done, just as long as it's done. Next up, legalize Gay marriage
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Now, them actually Raising their Hands and taking the Oath is another matter - but some will enjoy the Hell out of the moment of the Recruiters having to deal with them.

    We do need a few Generals to speak out about this Judge's decision which I think might not be Constitutional.
    Because gay people are fighting for the right to be in the military just for the purpose of flaunting it in front of recruiter's faces?

    You know - when people join the military for the wrong reasons they often are rooted out during boot processing.

    Only true soldiers can actually graduate and join the force.

    In some cases YES - because despite what the subgroup here thinks - it is frequently not about Social Progress or Fairness but confrontation and the persistent desire to offend.

    I challenge you to find more instances of gay people prancing into recruiter's offices to offend them for giggles, than instances of gays with honorable and valueable service being discharged from the military for no other reason than being gay.

    Good luck

    Some - how many is some, by the way? 10 - 100 - 1000? And why deny *the whole* any liberties because of what *the some* decide to do?

    I'm quite sure of that. I was just wondering why Ned seems to think that some gays only want to offend and couldn't possibly want to defend their country...

    I doubt that. Or else there would be no point in having a draft.

    A draft is a measure of desperation - a last resort - when ALL people who joined have been assigned, stationed, injured, rendered unable to fight or dead.
    And in a draft they still don't take *everyone*

    The above entry runs contrary to a lot of History. Also most of those thinking this policy change is a real plus either have No Service OR are individuals not wishing the US Military well.
