    I love how you didn't answer his question.

    So how come heterosexual soldiers are not required to give up marriage and forming a family but homosexual soldiers are? That goes beyond unfair to an outright denial of the very freedoms those soldiers are fighting for.

    I wired up a daisy chain once; a series of 4. It was purdy awesome. I put 12 mother****ers on ice. Not bad, when all I had to do was fire off one rifle round.

    That would cause more trouble, and problems in the military then letting LGBT soldiers serve openly.

    And, assuming that soldiers just concentrate on being a soldier 24/7 is not only a stupid assumption to make, it also doesn't even make sense to expect soldiers to be this way. Just because someone is considered "on duty" 24/7, does not mean that they do not get some personal time during that 24/7. And it is quite healthy for soldiers to make friendships with people within their units during that off-time (that really is just down time in the same place).

    And, you know this, because of all your time in the bush leading soldiers?

    You talk like you got some trigger time, but we all know you don't. Unless you can come up with some primer, which I doubt very, very seriously that you can.

    Daisy is an old slang word for gay men, you have to be pretty old to have heard it used. NavyPride is probably old enough to have used the term himself. I heard it used in an old western movie, a black and white one, IIRC.

    I did. The postscript was that it's our duty to make the best of it. Repealing DADT would go a long way in making life better for a lot of people.

    Will not work. What part of this do you not understand? This proposal would either end up with a lot of people stressed out or disobeying such an order. It is completely unrealistic to expect this from anyone who has to spend 24/7 with a certain group of people for extended periods of time, even their down time.
