    Well, they are old, I'll give you that. But how do you discount them?

    Racists and sexists said exactly the same things you're saying now. They were wrong. So are you. Everyone realized they were wrong later. We will do the same with you, and maybe you'll even live to see it.

    What does morals and integrity have to do with finding a civilian job?

    But enlistments are up beyond the capacity for processing them. I know two young men who waited the better part of a year to go to boot camp. One of them finished a couple months ago and is now a Marine.

    Enlistment bonuses are a thing of the past, but still young men and women are signing up in droves. Given the polls that reflect more tolerant attitudes among younger people, it wouldn't seem a great number would change their mind if DADT was repealed.

    Don't know any personally... Unlike people like you don't like calling names

    That said the straight people would honor their draft requirement...no need to hide in Canada

    I didn't call anyone a name.

    No, I'll bet you a few would dodge the draft rather than serve with gays. That's the logical conclusion of the argument that the draft will be required in the first place.

    They have also lowered the standards to meet their requirement to.......Lower GCTs and physical standards...not good, especially in the army.........

    actually that is false......I posted a poll taken of active duty military a couple of pages back ....you should read it.........it was strongly against lifting DADT and that included the younger people to......I talk to military members all the time so I knew that already.....you should go back and check it out.......

    Its sad you feel that way....The problem is if your boy Obama gets his way it will be worse.......

    I think a prospective employer would look for those attributes in a possible recruit......That is just me though......

    So do you oppose women in serving?

    actually that is false......I posted a poll taken of active duty military a couple of pages back ....you should read it.........it was strongly against lifting DADT and that included the younger people to......I talk to military members all the time so I knew that already.....you should go back and check it out.......
    Your poll was worthless. It was not scientific. Nor are your conversations with people.
