    Agreed.

    Besides, Obama has more important issues to deal with. Let the military deal with the military, the economy should be his main focus, enough of this nonsense. People need to get back to work, but Obama just can't stop scheming on more social experiments he can perform.

    Its sickening to see him trying this during a time of war.

    I'm of the opinion that, well inside a million years from now, it would be political suicide NOT to...If it's still an issue then.

    But I could be wrong.

    Would you please answer my question? I'm curious to know why you feel homosexuals are incapable of combat.

    The military has too serious a job to have to worry about political correctness. As it stands, gay people can serve, just keep it to yourself. I don't get how that's so unreasonable.

    There were loads of republicans that wanted to repeal it, problem was that they had the dream act added to it. The dream act is not as popular as the repeal of don't ask don't tell policy. That's why it failed.

    What about when they want to bring their partners to military functions but can't? Or if they get stationed at a military base and want their partner to move in with them? They are denied rights due to DADT and deserve equality within the military. The military isn't about sexuality or declaring what you find attractive, but homosexual families have their rights denied due to DADT. I think this is unreasonable.
