What these men and women want is to be able to be honest. It's not like suddenly the uniform will change to include ass-less chaps.
    If you truly want to be "honest" then you have to recognize that the military is all volunteer and thus subject to the rules created by the military commanders, it isn't a civil rights issue. DADT has to be changed by Congress and the military, right now that isn't going to happen.

    It takes special people to do what the military does. I don't feel qualified to make decisions like this for them. I'm for what they are for, whatever that is.
    So, the pentagon and the survey finds that repealing DADT shouldn't be a big problem.

    Why do you oppose repeal?

    Voluntary or not, LBGT issues MUST be fully accepted in the programming of everyone or else the whiners scream "HOMOPHOBE"

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    What makes the military great is the discipline that is instilled in all who have volunteered to serve. Discipline comes from rules which seem to not have a place in society today. DADT is a rule in place, you don't like the rule, don't enlist.

    Unless they meet a gay soldier, then they can run around freaking out about gay cooties.

    Thank goodness DADT is not a rule placed on society.

    Yeah, the contempt that conservatives have for the military is astounding.

    Our soldiers are so noble and special and disciplined and professional . . . just not noble or special or disciplined or professional enough to serve with a gay soildier. In fact, they're immature and petty and bigoted enough to altogether pick up and leave.

    The lack of intelligence of liberals is astounding.

    We actually don't care for the most part, we want neither conservatives telling us how we think, nor do we want gay activists telling us what to think. It's far more an issue amongst civillians than is it for those who serve/served.
