    John McCain admitted that he couldn't even figure out how to turn on a computer. His fingers are also damaged from his time as a POW so he isn't capable of typing.

Gay military units means that normal troops won't have any problems, because they won't have to deal with it, and gays won't have any problems because they'll be in their own units.
    Thank you for your suggestion. We should also bring back black military units. Think of all the money we'll save if we segregate our military. We don't have to stop at blacks and gays. We should also segregate Jewish soldiers. While we're at it, if you like blue and somebody likes red, there is no reason for both of them to be in the same unit. Their disagreements might be bad for unit cohesion,

    We don't make fun of wrestling. How many times do I have to tell you guys that.

    Besides, what is gay about a sport involving 2 sweaty guys grabbing...

    OK, never mind that question.

    Which makes his sponsorship of the Internet Censorship Freedom Act all the more infuriating.

    Again on the below link per my previous post below, the most important question in that poll is shown below. A question that should have been asked in Obama's poll. Note adding the two favors is 29.5% while adding the two oppose is 51% with the rest neutral. What many of you gays don't seem to understand is it is not a matter of a simple majority of military soldiers supporting your view that matters as it might be in an election but rather that those opposing change are significant numbers. The fact so many STRONGLY oppose shows how serious the issue is considered. And no amount of policy changes or sensitivity training is going to make much of a difference for those holding strongly held moral beliefs.

    11. All in all, do you strongly favor, favor, oppose, or strongly oppose allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military?

    Strongly favor 14.5%
    Favor 15%
    Neutral 18.7%
    Oppose 14.2%
    Strongly oppose 36.8%
    Decline to answer 0.8%

    I just don't understand why anyone really cares if you are gay in the military. It's not like we are talking the military going Corporal Clinger if DADT is repealed. The same discipline will still apply. I honestly think even as a conservative this is stupid.

    I don't understand--just as much--why we can't just lift the ban on gays and leave DADT in place.

    I think it's more about gays serving, "openly", more than just gays serving.

    I know too many that were discharged because someone saw them off post etc. That is why it needs to be repealed. It is used way to liberally. No pun intended, lol.
