    For the same reason you don't compare a 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass to a 2011 Ferrari.

    Other than having four tires and a steering wheel, they're not at all comparable on any line of measurement.

    Yeah that is what your surveery says that asks the wrong question but when I talk to guys in the fleet and ask them the right question not one has answered me to this point that they want to repeal DADT and several senior people said they would leave the Navy if DAFT is repealed.........

    In Britain and Canada, polls had indicated that thousands would resign if gays were allowed to serve, but when the bans were lifted, almost no one left. The British Defense Ministry conducted several assessments of the policy change and called it a "solid achievement.

    That's a load of crap. Face it Navy....you've flip-flopped on this issue so many times....why don't you just admit that you are never going to support gays in any shape or form whatsoever, rather than trying to hide behind so many covers. First it was, I will support it if the voters support it, then it was I'll support it if the military supports it, nows it..."They asked the wrong questions"..... You ain't foolin anyone here.

    That is why it is an estimate. I am not sure how they arrived at the number, but it does sound pretty much in the ballpark.

    Let the military speak! Wait, don't let the military speak unless you ask the questions in just the right way to get the answer I want!

    This has gotten to be beyond funny.

    Redress the questions that were posed to the military were like the repeal was a done issue, not whether you are for or against repeal.....

    But it IS a done issue...

    At some point inside the next 5 years, barring a major change in how things appear to be going, DADT will be repealed.

    They where asked the exact relevant question: will it effect readiness. Sorry Navy, republicans voting against this have reached the point of being ludicrous.
